Westerners dating taiwanese women in taiwan
I had one local guy try to date me in those first few months when I was single (poor fellow - I had no idea he was interested, and I was blinkered from being fresh off a hard break-up), one student tell me he loved me (and he meant it the way it came out) and a few guys who have obviously had crushes but never acted on them (thank goodness).
I'm about as as it gets (my favorite expression for proclaiming anger is in Taiwanese and translates as "my dick is on fire! If Taiwanese guys all preferred "demure" women, none of these experiences my friends and I have had would have happened.
(Nothing wrong with that, I'm not judging it, just that that attitude from guys hasn't worked for me in the past).
I prefer guys who take it slow, for whom kissing a woman means he's truly interested and it's a significant thing, and nothing less, and I'm fine with a guy who is more introverted (=/= shy).
If it's "do I want to look to them for opinions and advice because I agree with their values? Of course if I didn't fit the bill of such a man, then that means it won't work out. If it's "I won't marry any woman my parents haven't approved", then again we're gonna have a problem. Yes, because family is not important to other guys everywhere else in the world.
That would not be quite agreeable with average Western women, though. To quote one of my former 20-something male students who came to me for advice (A usually quiet conservative looking fellow studying engineering), "My girlfriend wants to get married and have a baby, but I feel I'm too young. I like the feeling I have when I am with a new girl.
My based on my limited experience and taken with a few pounds of salt since Icon belongs to a different generation and culture than average: I would dare to say the dating scene is somewhat tainted by cultural expectations.
Women can usually "astray" from their culture, being more open -in very general terms- to explore the confines of knowledge and culture, and hence in very general terms, more willing to engage with foreign guys.
The younger generation threads more gingerly and at the same time, are more adventurous. They are already opening up to living together before marriage, openly, for instance, but are more discrete if still in the one night stand circuit. Mafalda None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Kal El: I agree that the viewpoints are varied and that the dating scene is mostly universal. It makes me feel powerful."Sure, his English might have been a bit off in terms of what he really meant, but I think you get the point.
Out of sheer economic need, me thinks, as they still live with parents or can't get married for lack of funds. But at least here they still have that goal to settle down, even if it is after having fun. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Working with a lot of 20-something guys and girls and often having discussions about dating etc, once they start to trust me, the expectations and attitudes from guys and girls are pretty much the same as those in a western country.
