Ok… maybe this is a silly post, but here I go anyway.
At 6’6" (approx. 197 cm), I’m always getting stared at. I’d like to think it is because of my striking good looks. However, I’m pretty sure it’s my height and size… and the beard… and the fact that I’m a foreigner. I know, I know… when they do it, they don’t mean anything by it and it’s not considered rude.
Intellectually, I understand that but, sometimes, emotionally I don’t care and it bugs the hell out of me. My reaction, usually depends on how much I’m liking Taiwan at that moment (it’s only been a bit over a month and I’m still adjusting ). I either ignore them or, when I’m feeling better, I stare back, smile and/or wave. Occasionally, I engage them, or they me, in a limited conversation based on our respective language skills. But, I digress…
Are there any resources for the taller among us foreigners? Anyone interested in starting a club? Or, should we just bitch about it here!?!?
