Where can I make friends? aka the find-a-friend thread


#221

Hi all from Taichung. (If there are any)

I am male 30, ABC from Austria, worked in Hong Kong (financial area) for a while and decided to move back to Taiwan/Taichung to pursue my own career. I myself cannot read or write Chinese unfortunately. Love sports.

Anyhow, just like everyone else here looking to make some friends (not for dating) to hang out for BBQs, Road Trips, Cycling trips, hiking around Taiwan, sports, you name it etc. I would like to meet Male/Female in Taichung. Geez, won’t mind meeting ppl from other areas too but the chances of meeting up would be rather slim.

It seems very desperate to be posting on forums to meet friends. Reality is that its not easy to make friends here and I am in need of friends. (How desperate it may sound).

Just drop me a pm. I am most willing to hook you up with my picture to prove that I am not some creep. We can also skype to kick things off. No harm in doing so.

Hi forumosa just joined the forum amd thought in posting in this thread.
I have been living in changhua for about 4 months and im starting to get really damn bored because back in my country i
used to have an awesome social life and here meyo pengyou lol having no friends is kindof sad feeling.
Im a 23 year old (male) spanish native speaker and fair enough with english conversations ill like to meet any kind of friend lol doesnt matter taiwanesse or foreigner male or female that can speak english and i will be really gratefull if they can teach me some chinese because im learning kindof slow.

I like sports, videogames (ps3 has been my only friend this days), like to party and drink a couple of whishkys or beers, i am willing to try new activitis though. So pm me or send me an email i usually answer really fast ercastaneda@hotmail.com
Or add me to skype ercastaeda (yes withouth the n unlike my email…)

Hi all
Wow, I feel like kinda old here! I’m a 44 yr old straight Chinese Singaporean recently posted to Taiwan for work. Don’t really know alot of folks here and feeling quite bored here. Would be great to meet up with sincere male or females for social networking and making more friends. Not really into clubbing or wild drinking binge anymore but love having a nice dinner, wine, good conversation and company. I’ll be staying near Da Zhi in Taipei. Let me know if anyone is keen to meet up.

Hi all,

I am in my 20’s, from East Africa, done a fair bit of travelling, now in Taichung to study Mandarin. Im looking to make some friends… just people that can speak some english to hang out with. I live out in the Country side, I believe the name is Wuqi - so I’d be really excited about meeting anyone who lives in the area. However, I do make it to Central Taichung quite often too.

Awesome a post for meeting new friends in taiwan. Since I’m here I might as well jump into it as well.

I was actually born in taiwan but ended up moving over to Vancouver Canada when I was 2. Didn’t found I was actually born here until I was 20, so I got curious about my birth place so I ended up taking a trip here 3 years ago that was suppose to be only for 2 weeks, well i ended up staying here an then BAM 3 years already. Im down with meeting some new foreigners or locals. here is my LINE ID DEVPUNK. drop me a line if you want

Hi,

I’m an American born Chinese/French/Vietnamese mix, in my late 30s. Just moved to Taipei this June to take care of my aging folks. Don’t know any other native English speakers except this one couple I know back in the States. I speak/read/write fluently both Mandarin and English (of course), and know a little Spanish, Taiwanese, Cantonese. Not sure if I can meet English speaking friends here as I have failed to do so at other sites, but sure give it a try. Not looking to date as I need to focus on my career (line producer for independent films back in Los Angeles but now, uhm… in between jobs). I’m a movie fanatic and have like 800 blu ray movies so if there’s any other movie fanatics that want to watch a movie in theater or home or whatever, and like to discuss about them afterwards, let me know. :slight_smile: :slight_smile: Either way, good luck to all.

James

Hi everyone!

I’m Sim from Penang, Malaysia who had been in Taiwan for med school for the past 7 years and starting work as a generalist resident in August. 25 y/o male who loves movies, reading, swimming, running, cycling, and procrastinating. Only found out this forum recently and was very excited to meet new people and share important information on being a foreigner on this intriguing little island. I’m based in Hualien but frequents Taipei and will look to moving there next year for a pediatrics residency position. Hopefully everything goes according to plan!
I speak good Chinese, English, Malay, Cantonese, a little Italian and French. I keep a blog at jysim.blogspot.com and would be more than happy to share information on healthcare, trips to Hualien, studying, working in Taiwan etc through my email junyi2002[at]gmail.com
Have a great weekend! :thumbsup:

Hi!
I’m a 26yo/F Singaporean Chinese that decided to uproot myself and move to Taipei about 3 weeks ago. I’m hoping to meet new friends to hang out with (coffee/chat/sports/shopping/language exchange etc) as it can get rather boring sometimes. I speak fluent Mandarin so will be happy to help anyone who needs help in the language department.

If you would like to meet up, drop me an email at leng.eunice@gmail.com

Is it true Singaporeans are the most miserable people in the world? There was a survey done a few months ago and ranked Singapore the worst and Denmark the best… not sure if the survey justify that, just curious. Welcome to Taipei and join us foreigners here… I’m new as well.
