As a Taiwanese guy who grew up in the US, let me give you my take.

From the profile picture, I have to admit, you are a gorgeous looking girl.
However, your appearance and make up would attract mostly "players" here in Taiwan.
From what you have described... you aren't interested in those who goes clubbing and all that.
In that case, for you to show your interest to those so called "home-boy" or "Otaku" or "Jai Nan"
they would totally be scared as you are not the type they are looking for!
They usually like the home-girl type.... this is just from my observation and my opinion.

I actually know a few guys that falls into your category including myself... so I can't imagine it being too hard..
Don't give up on Taiwanese guys yet!


Thank's hun :notworthy: you gave me my hope back, right there!
If u aren't failing, u aren't trying hard enough.

I would think the possibility of finding the right description guy will be hard.

1. good English
2. Not playboy type
3. Has free time
4 Tall

1. For someone to be fluent in english, that person somehow need to study/work aboard for minimum 5 years. This means, the person is usually from financially well families

2. Unfortunately, person with $$$ has higher chance to be a player as some girls just throw themselves at these guys.

3. TW has long work hour environment. Usual daily work hrs is like 10 hours. Few gets the luxury to have jobs with 9-5 jobs.

4. Well, not a major issue, but chance is further limited with already tough requirements.

In summary, even it looks tough, consider there are 4 million people in greater TPE area. There should still be plenty of guy fitting the description. Just need to expose yourself more to the "correct market"

PS, many TW guys can be "less experienced" when it comes to approach girls. Maybe they were just shy and lack of confidence. If they see a "target" beyond their "reach", they probably wont' even bother trying.

Don't do that, it looks desperate.

Before you lovingly craft your PM, make like any writer and consider your audience. With all the information at your disposal, is there any possibility that the recipient will open it? Would your time be better employed?

I think people need to focus on bettering themselves first and foremost. For me, relationships have to take a rest for awhile until I figure out where my life is heading...I don't think it would be fair to bring anyone else into the chaos.

I would say to the OP that focus on who you are and where your life is headed, what you need to do to be comfortable/content/happy being ALONE for awhile. Too many women feel that they "need" a man to be happy...we really do have to learn to be happy with ourselves before we can truly be happy with anyone else. This goes for men as well.

Maybe we aren't ready for relationships until we have conquered the despair in loneliness...until we come to see that loneliness can be a friend and a teacher.

Maybe I should rephrase the sentence. I meant to say "make yourself present at correct market".

"not expose your body" by wearing little :whistle:

While that may often be true, it is not necessary. Some of the local SO's of Forumosans have never studied or worked abroad, are not from rich families, and yet have surprisingly good English. They merely need to be bright, interested in English, and motivated to study.
