Taiwanese lesbians and foreign (brown skinned) partners?

Postby jazumin.AVENGER » 22 Feb 2010, 13:19

Hello Forumosa, and thank you for having me. I recently came into some loot :discodance: so I'm moving to Taipei, for hopefully a few years, in 4mths. My Mandarin is conversational, don't know any taiwanese dialects, but I think I can manage. Since I'm going to be there for a while, I was wondering if anyone knows about the lesbian scene in taipei and whether or not the stigma is the same as when taiwanese males date darker skinned females. I saw a post about males dating black females, but I prefer the fairer sex so yea. I'm not tall, not fair skinned, BUT I'm one of those "skateboarder-8 trillion piercings and tattoos all over-grungy style-token black (lols)- artsy glasses-musician" types. I also come from a fairly well to do family, if that makes any difference.

Are the females very timid? Aggressive (highly doubt it)? Attractive (1 out of 10? 5 out of 10? in your opinion)? Do they seem to have an eye for financial wealth rather than true feelings as in my experiences with japanese females? I know these are very broad questions, but I think you guys' personal experiences with females might help.

Oh yea, I'd be considered a T and not a Pao/Po, however it's spelled. Thanks in advance.
The philosophy of Zhuang zi puts an emphasis on freedom and carefreeness, so anything that is seen as 'out of the ordinary' is really 'ordinary' according to the natural way of things. . . Ohh burn.

I had a black gay friend who never complained a single moment and loved it here.
As far as I know Taiwan is pretty much a gay/lesbians paradise, for foreigners that is.

About your money: simply don't be a "Santa Claus" the whole time.
Give when you feel they deserve it and definitely not when they don't.
Works perfectly for me, all my friends know what to expect from me, and what not.
Ps I don't have to work for money.
(and No, I am not gonna give anybody a loan here, f**k off :raspberry: )

Welcome to Taiwan :bow:


I may be gay but I have no clue what a T or Pao Po is.
Explain (no gory details please lol).

In general,
T = butch psuedo-man with some form of a pixie cut. This is the only hairstyle Ts are apparently allowed to have?
Puo = lesbian that is not really discernible from straight girls

Most lesbian couples seem to be a T+P combo, where the T is expected to behave........exactly like a man.

jazumin.AVENGER, if you're not fugly, I think you'll have a wonderful time here. There seems to be a very high percentage of girls who are lesbians here. It's a fad right now. And in general I don't think young straight girls are all that frightened by lesbians. I think it's slowly becoming socially acceptable for girls to date Ts or guys. There are like 100 lesbian couples on the street for every 1 gay couple you see maybe. I mean, I've never really actually seen gay guys walkin down the street here looking lovey. But all the girls act like happy regular boy-girl couples in general, and no one really even bats an eye.

There are no brown skinned lesbians here (that I know of) Things should be fine...the T/P mix drives me mad. I have short hair and only the Ps are interested in me, but I prefer tomboys...aaargh.

You can PM me for details..I have a bunch of foreign and local friends that are all really cool. Also check out Taboo club. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pag ... 8913823..1

and I wouldn't be telling people I'm rich all the time. If you're into P's that will cost you a lot...darnit they're into their labels!!

Ooooh, T for Tomboy!
We have loads of those here, almost always walking hand in hand with their gf.

Off course guys won't do that! Why would you show the whole world you are taken already? That would just minimize your chances with all the other cuties you haven't met yet. :cool:

I've never really actually seen gay guys walkin down the street here looking lovey.


hahahahahahah, HILARIOUS!

Have you tried just coming on to them in an obvious manner? Ts generally seem kind of shy like.

idk if this will be double posting (hope not.) but . .

thanks for our responses. I hope we can keep in touch until the summer! you seem like a pretty ok crowd. and there are some homosexual brethren so, yippy!

ha ha ha. don't worry, I'll try not to find you and ask you to loan me a few bucks for some suncakes ;]

well, I don't think im fugly personally. (fugly is such a strong, GAY, word lol) but I'm just nervous about the staring and pointing and all that. AND I don't want to be a "trophy" lol. been there done that and it's funny, but then humbling at the same time.

it's just like in America. greed is universal. and I'm very cautious, especially in a foreign country to me, for now. plus I've had an Asian x who was all about money and taking care of her parents. I mean, maybe once I'm ripe and seasoned and have felt true love, but not yet.

i will pm you if thats okay. thanks again for the responses.

oh yea, its off topic a little, but if any of you have been out to many different clubs/venues, are there any good places with rock/metal style music. I know its mostly hip-hop and all that jazz, but ehhhh, not my scene.

I think that will work out fine. BUT i probably won't meet anyone for the first couple of months anyway.

I hope im not coming off like some of the pervs I've heard about :ponder: :no-no:

sooo, yeaaa, how was the "settling in" experience for you guys?
