Snow White, my advice to you is to get out and make a lot of friends. Friends have friends who can introduce you to possible boyfriends. Then you can pick and choose. But please, don’t be desperate. Guys don’t like desperate girls.
I am not interested in marriage at all. I like my freedom, independence and I want to stay single forever. I think my approach towards freedom and independence attracted some guys, you know to conquer me. But if you are desperate in finding a lifelong partner, that’s a different story. I don’t believe in the ‘love one person forever’ thing. But maybe you do. Just don’t be desperate, or look desperate.
The first few months are not easy. But jump in and get out, meet people.
Don’t underestimate Taiwanese guys. (Oh, and the aboriginal guys are sooooo handsome.) Some Taiwanese men really nice, very well educated and they are very kind. But not so romantic. Don’t expect flowers. But they’ll treat you like a lady. And they never argue or yell, they never throw tantrums. But stay away from Taiwanese first born sons. Remember, they have to take care of their parents and you will be not number 1 on their priority lists. The parents are.
Bob, I don’t agree with you. Taiwan is really not the worst place for a single western woman to meet someone nice. It’s not easy, but really not that hard. I’m really not gorgeous, my Mandarin is really not good. Yes, I’m bright, outgoing and friendly. I don’t live in a big city, I live in the countryside, and it’s really not hard for me to meet nice people. It’s really all about attitude and zest for life. I know some Western girls who don’t even greet other people. How will you meet people if don’t even say ‘hello’. If you’re shy, not so easy. Girls, dont be shy. Get out and mingle.
