Since I have only observed the superficial, I don't think I should be making any analysis on how western expat treat the local women. I'll just sound like a jackass.
As for my opinon on TW women seeking Western men, I would say that some women here are seeking someone exotic, others do it becuase they are more appealing to foreigners, and some do it because of the different dynamics (all legit reasons). All the beautiful white faces on those local fashion advertisements also make a good sell, don't you think? I like one theory that Asians find Western features attractive and vice-versa. But I do not think that applies for everyone since looks is only one part of the equation.

You think there are no differences between how these two groups of men treat local women? Didn't you just say that cultures evolve differently? Duuhh, western culture vs eastern culture? Two different cultures means two different paths to the treatment of women means that we can see differences in the ways western expats treat local women vs the way local men do. The line of reasoning that says 'men are the same everywhere so you can't say one group treats women better than another', or 'every country has an equal share of abusers of women' is just, what's the word I'm searching for? 'Dumb'
Again, I think those who knows more should be answering this, but I'll give it a shot. It is true that the women are treated differently, but I don't think you can say one group treats women "better" than another (which some posters try to prove). A woman will seek the man that treats her the best regardless of the race. At least that's how the smart ones will do.
The only qualfied ones to speak on this subject are the women who have been in relationships with MANY men of both types. Which is really not possible. However, that's how statistics works. You cannot draw a good conclusion based on a small sample pool.
Western man seem to be more popular here has to do with statistics. Go to Hong Kong/Singapore and see what type of popularity they enjoy compare with Taiwan. Many of the guys here admitted on the "why Taiwanese women are attracted to Western men" thread that it has little to do with how they treat the women. Their popularity may even tempt them to treat the women differently than they would at home. This factor alone would ruin the integrity of the analysis.
Some French women think Asian men treat women better than western men while some American women consider French men more romantic. Some ABC girls date white men exclusively while others date Asian men exclusively. Some Japanese women prefer African American while some thinks that they fool around. Its not better or worst, its individual compatible issue.
p.s. Is this what you wanted to discuss or I've just wasted time on the wrong thing? [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
