Forum rules

Please don't post personal ads here. They will be removed. Offensive posts will also be removed at the discretion of the moderators, including lewdness, excessive profanity, pornographic pictures, nasty and mean-spirited comments

I think Taiwanese people are pretty social and well connected. If you just get to know one male / female, you can know a whole horde of his / her friends. Also they are easy to talk to and get to know.

Unlike the Western world, they actually talk to their neighbors a lot and hang out with them. If you live in an apartment complex, try to talk to as many neighbors as you can. You are bound to meet some people.


:roll:

There's nothing wrong with using an online dating site to sift through all the crap and awkwardness of blind dates and picking some random stranger up. I prefer those websites, like friendfinder.com and its affiliates (asianfriendfinder, singlespersonals.com, adultfriendfinder, outpersonals, bigchurch, etc.) to the usual way of picking up a date (i.e. going to a club or picking from your circle of friends - don't do it, trust me :noway: ). You can pick out what you are looking for in a mate - looks, personality, lifestyle, beliefs, values, interests, marital status or rather lack thereof, age, desire to have children, and sexual compatibility (and other related preferences :howyoudoin: ) rather than having to bring them up in a conversation or finding out the hard way that something you feel is extremely important to a relationship isn't as much a priority to them.

Why not you search form international dating free site? I think all local sites will be in Chinese. You may try msn free advance search option.

Plentyoffish.com seems to have a decent number of people, but for some reason the search feature doesn't work for taipei only, so you gotta search all of Taiwan.

Online dating

Postby aahz » 06 Aug 2011, 02:47

Hello. I've met quite a few people recently who have said that the way to go to meet girls is through online dating.
I tried doing a search for the thread but am pretty bad at skimming through the pages after pages of stuff.
This seems like one of those subjects that everyone I meet talks about... yet I'm pretty much clueless about it. What sites would one suggest?

Recently I'm at the point of desperation where I just need a hook up to get my confidence back up from being out of the game. Or a fresh scene...

I guess you must not have seen the 100s of afterdark web banners that pop up on this forum?

HeyPersonals Or Formosa Friends ?

Postby Delonge182 » 13 Aug 2011, 20:04

MODERATOR NOTE: Thread merged from "HeyPersonals Or Formosa Friends ?"

Hey,

Are they the same thing ?

If not, what are the advantages / drawbacks of each ? I signed up to the Hey site, and the interface seems pretty basic, you can't even sort by city, lol.

As far as I understand it's the same, Forumosa is just having a re-branded version. If you sign up with Forumosa Friends, you get the same, plus you support Forumosa.

Now I guess the more interesting question for you would be Forumosa Friends or Forumosa After Dark :p

Cool, I think the latter was just an attempt at monetization though right ? I don't think there's a lot of folks from Taiwan signed up to it.

I guess these services are a better way to meet people than say tealit ?
