Exactly, why should the MRT be any different to a bar or coffee shop?
I chat to people all the time. After they got over the initial 'scare' of talking to a foreigner they are cool.
Lucky I have stones like King Kong..dont mind gettin rejected in front of a crowd.

Still trying to track down one girl I saw on the MRT who I think could be the one... :s

If you read books, hang out in the library. And your opening line is "That's a great Norman Mailer/Murikami novel....etc"

If you like music, hang out at record shops. "Wow, I love the Beta Band/Mars Volta....etc"

If you like photography or painting....well, I'm a pretty non-visual person. Go nuts.

If you're a political animal -- "Well, y'know, I have my doubts about neo-liberalism....."

And if you don't have any brains (can not talk about any of the above), well you get what you deserve. To the shallow flesh markets for ye, for that's all you have to offer to humanity.

Yeah, this is correct. As a resource for intellectual stimulation I will seek a good book, do some websurfing for information worth ingesting and thinking upon, or else just go deep into my own mind. There is no conceivable role that a woman can play in that arena except for being a distraction, and that's where her specifically female qualifications will be scrutinized for their quality, since time is precious. Sometimes they offer the best of both worlds, but that's extremely rare. No point in pretending to be looking for an intellectual match in the opposite sex, it isn't happening (not for me anyway). And it just gets worse because, if it IS happening, and she's desirable (bearable to look at even, to quote the disgruntled Taiwanese female), then she's damn well taken already, or she's just as picky as I am and we probably won't be a match. What the hell, you've gotta go with the flow and catch what you can, but try to live up to your standards, assuming you have any. Besides, please try to have a life OUTSIDE of relationships for goodness sake, as it's just healthier and happier than constantly hunting sex or love. Yeah, if it's good don't turn your back on it (whatever it is), but if you have a real life, it won't revolve around that.

If Taiwan is not new to you, then I think you would know the local language. Then you can easily search local dating sites easily. Or you can also have advanced search from MSN.

Chinese is hard to learn, you know. Especially learning writing.
