MODERATOR NOTE: This thread is about ONLINE DATING. It's NOT about "You're such a loser if you cant pick up guys/gals in a bar". Please keep it on-topic. Xie Xie.

Are there any good sites for Taipei where one can meet girls. I am moving to Taiwan later on this year so I will be on my own and I wanted to try and make friends with people who will be around where I will be at. This way I won't be completly on my own. The other question is how hard is it for a single white male who has had no kind of dating experience ever to find a date. I will be doing IT work and I will have my own 1 bedroom apartment. But I have no experience with girls. What can I do to prepare my self before I arrive. I should point out that I moving after the second week in september

try language exchanges and ladies nights at the popular western bars.

You can find language exchanges on http://www.tealit.com

Good luck

Yes. I met my wife on Forumosa.com, so you might try that one. They even have Happy Hours where you can meet other posters.

Making scrambled eggs is more difficult.

What can I do to prepare my self before I arrive.


Start learning Mandarin. That will definitely help. Then when you get here, get language exchange partners, go out a lot (don't stay in your room watching TV), and chat with all the cute xiaojie's you see. Take them out for dinner, go for walks, and so on. Then comes amore. :wink: Then babies. And diapers. Lots of diapers. Dirty, stinky ones. Listen, are you sure you want to go this route?

Ever Meet Anyone on Forumosa Friends?

Postby 14_of_spades » 29 Jun 2008, 11:40

Hi folks

Was thinking of paying for a membership to contact members on the site. The numbers of females on that site is plentiful. I'm looking for STR or LTR.

Just wondering if anyone has ever had luck actually meeting people through there? How does it compare with say, Tealit?

Thanks.

Hmmm...

I was just hoping to get some dates.


But such a "study" would take quite a lot of work. Like, I'm a sample-size of one. So to do a study like that effectively, would require the mobilization of quite a few resources.


I have had success on Tealit. Met one of my exes there. She was a sweetie. And then there were a few others.

I know some guys that have used Forumosa Friends successfully. Success meaning they've gotten what appears to be a long-term relationship out of the deal. The cool thing about Forumosa Friends is that the pool of candidates is much bigger than just the people that have registered through Forumosa. Taiwan Fun's HeyPersonals, or whatever they call it, is actually the same dating service, just rebranded. Good luck!

One thing that bothers me about Forumosa Friends is that it in the country list it says Taiwan (China), which is a bit like saying Sudetenland (Germany) in 1938. However, I shouldn't mention that here, because it is politics and this is the Dating Forum.

Oh that's not good. Not good at all! Let me see if I can't get that changed! Thanks for the heads up! :notworthy:

The people on the banners all seem so bizzare, I never bothered looking. Are they chosen randomly?
