I am currently having some doubts with my TW girlfriend. The thing is we met in Australia, had dated for 6 months during that time (lived together for 4 months) and she went back to taiwan about a month ago due to her visa expiring. She doesn’t like Asian guys and told me she doesn’t want to be with any of the ‘whites’ in her country because they only stay a short time there. I would like to think we are in a serious relationship and the issue of marriage has popped up now and then (mostly in a jokingly fashion).
Anyways the thing is soon I will be traveling and staying for 3 months so as to have a look around taiwan and possibly deepen the relationship. I know she doesn’t always get on with her family because she has mainly different opinions with them about a range of issues. My family know the whole deal about me going to taiwan for the sake of her and they already assume that this relationship is something for the long term. However one thing that had been bugging me is that she hasn’t told anyone in her family yet that I even exist! No matter how far i push the issue she always dodges it cleverly. Is it a cultural thing? Am I missing something big here?
I have been trying to get some information about this and one friend told me she was still waiting to see if I was a worthy to introduce to her parents, because over there it means a potential marriage partner!!!
