But the Taiwanese women rarely ever write me back, and if they do, they are only polite and write bland things. They never offer to meet me or show personal interest.
But the girls in China write me everyday and show high interest. The difference is astounding. I used to think girls were the same in China and Taiwan. But now I know they are clearly not. Can anyone explain why they are different?
Any of you who have been to China want to comment?
Yeah. I'll quote on this. I found that some Taiwanese will write back, and some Chinese will also write back. I did meet one Chinese person through dateinasia and I also met another online who wants to meet me, but we live in different cities. So it's hard. But I'll say one thing for sure. Most Chinese people and most Taiwanese people won't even respond to me. If they do, it's just a bunch of vague things that they say. I don't even know why some of them even use the site when they seriously have no interest.

If you are Chinese American and you go to China, they will respect you as if you are one of them. All you have to do is speak Chinese pride and they will love you. Just say "I may be raised in America, but I am damn proud to be Chinese. Long live chairman Mao". Just speak highly of the nation and be proud. In your conversations about Taiwan, just tell the Chinese what they wanna hear. When it comes to western media, just tell them that being ethnic Chinese you have a gene inside you which only Chinese have that allow you to see "the truth".
You won't have to tell them half the stuff I mentioned. But if you tell them what they wanna hear, and considering the fact that in their eyes you are part of their superior race. You will be respected.
The reason being Chinese American may not be as much as a hot item in Taiwan is because Taiwanese likely believe that all the worlds people are one people. It's only the skin color that's different. I'm sure some Taiwanese may be racist to a certain point. But most foreigners who have been to Taiwan almost always say how great the "people" are. If I had the necessary qualifications to get the work permit/ARC and everything to teach in Taiwan, I'd already be there.
