Hey guys. I learned about this website after trying to google ways of making new friends in Taiwan.
So, a quick backstory: I'm an 18 year old male, born and raised in Canada with Taiwanese parents. I speak English and French fluently, and I'm pretty decent in Mandarin except my vocabulary is next to crap and I have an accent. Last time I've been there was when I was 14, and I stay at various places (mom's house/grandma's, vacant hotspring condo we own =P)
Anyways, I have some friends in Taiwan but they are mostly the FOB type... Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against them; they're my friends and I'll hang out with them but they aren't usually the type of group I associate myself with.
With that said, I'm looking for either Taiwanese teens/young adults (16-25 I guess) that, like me, come form overseas and speak English. Also, I wouldn't mind hanging out with white people either (by white I guess I'm just referring to non-asian). I guess I just have some sort of prejudice against Asian people... I've asked some at my school if they thought I was whitewashed and apparently I really am although I just thought I was the right balance.
Anyways, I'm not usually the type who looks online for friends but I really want my summer worth it. I'm mainly going back because I haven't seen my mom in 3 years, otherwise, I would have opted to stay in Canada.
So, I'm not sure if this forum is made for meetups, but if it's not too weird for anyone, I'd like to meet people here. Umm, I guess meeting groups of friends would be more appropriate, but if anyone else is looking for a friend, then by any means let me know!
I'm also just asking around for places I could meet people (english speakers, Asian/non-asian). I mean, I'm 18, and I'll definitely be hitting the clubs and bars don't worry about that haha but I don't know if it's the right place to meet people.
Yeah... gonna take down this part to avoid offending people (lol) and their pointless replies.
What do you guys say ? =)
