However I don't think that many 20-30 year olds these days are thinking about marriage or a long term partner. It may be a little sad, but I really can' see too many women between 20-30 getting too bent out of shape over their boyfriend leaving.
My shoulder is still wet from tears, consoling friends in this situation, both male and female, in their 20's and 30s. That being said, I am only speaking from my own personal experiences, certainly not any scientific survey.
Maybe in Taiwan. I can't see this happening in Europe or the US.
I remember many white guys in SF who had broken hearts over Asian guys who were there studying in Uni, then dumped them like hot potatoes (pardon the pun, for those familiar with rice/potato) when their studies were over and they went back to their home countries. I can also remember white girls I studied with in Japan who took local bf's, also in their late 20's, and then forgot all about them when they went back to the US. One of the Japanese guys even flew to the US to see his "girlfriend", only to be totally ignored by her.
I don't have any scientific evidence either. However these days I can't really see getting all worked up about some foreign romance.
