What about the girls?
Japan is a good place for dating.
But the impression I get from reading stuff on here is that Taiwan is perhaps better.
The stereotypes about fat ugly guys getting hot girls in Japan is not true, I know far more decent looking nice guys who have a hard time finding a Japanese gf than fuglies who have an easy time.
I’m right now having an intense struggle in deciding if I want to leave Japan (been here 2 years) and give Taiwan a whirl.
The fact is it’s hard to get a decent urban life style in Japan, those jobs are the most highly sought after, and the wages are the same as the country jobs, whilst the rent is much higher.
I disagree that the Japanese country side is an expensive place to live, I put away close to US$1000 a month, but it is not a fun place to live.
Moving to any of the major Japanese cities would probably involved a massive cut in how much I can save, and a long drawn out job hunt.
I’m anticipating a fun life in Taipei, with some loss of savings, a wide range of jobs to choose from, a worse environment but a better atmosphere, and seemingly as good perhaps better dating scene.
well, if I choose to give it a try that is…
