Blood Type on Profile, What Does It Mean?

Moderator: Tempo Gain

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Blood Type on Profile, What Does It Mean?

Noticing blood type listing on Facebook and other profiles.

Seems an indicator (in Taiwan but also other countries and cultures) that:
- I am single.
- (I am probably a female).
- I am looking for a partner.
- I am looking for a compatible parter.
- I am superstitious either a little or a lot, or my family and friends are superstitious, but it is definitely something I consider in some form or factor when looking for a potential partner.
- Your blood type is a predictor of who you are and your personality and how a future would be together... i.e., what is our compatibility index, is it acceptable to me, and is it acceptable to my family, and is it acceptable to my friends who believe in these things.
- Debatable and maybe not an accurate observation: {I am getting a little desperate for a partner, so am exhausting my efforts to find a partner by looking at blood types or any other indicator of finding a partner}
“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”

It means that the other party is 'hands-off' due to being superstitious or even psycho ... a flag, a red light :D :ohreally:

It's like your star sign.

Actually, no. It's there so that if you stumble across another superking troll and sever a metaphorical artery (assuming you've got a heart), then haemorrhage badly and bleed out online, we know what to pump you full of to get your Forumosa persona back up to its normal snarky self.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

50% of the world's wild animals have disappeared in the last 50 years. Did you eat them, or eat their house?
