I just checked, the OP didn't mention it in THIS thread... Despite being a foreigner to Taiwan, he happens to look like the locals. So I guess he does not have the laowei foreigner bonus that you seem to describe, hence the "Problems"...



Exactly!
wow i couldnt have described it better!

I don't look foreign! I might have a different vibe, but when you first see my, you may think Im local. even though I don't really dress the same as people here.. hence the problems!

yea!
yes, I'm in Taiwan. O_O;

There you have it! You figured out the solution totally by yourself!

Go dress like some of the local boys: Wear a Gucci bag, get your hair into some cool anime style (don't forget to check/adjust your hair every 20 seconds on the MRT), wear funny Michael Jackson style shoes, and, if your body size allows, wear extremely tight skinny jeans. Oh, and a hat - unless that interferes with the hairstyle.

Bingo - Problem solved: A lot of guys will instantly start hitting on you :discodance:
They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them

On the contrary, he should dye his hair blond so he will look Japanese. At least more foreigner like...

I thought we had covered this on page 5. Are you sure it is an advantage to be a foreigner, or look like a foreigner? If you don't look foreign, then you have the advantage of stealth. More Taiwan girls go out with Taiwan boys than they do foreigners. Take a look outside.

That's because they haven't met me yet.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

But after they meet you, they totally swear off all boys. :ponder:

Stealth is overrated. It's best to approach your target from the front with a smile that shows you still have some good teeth. When I say, "approach from the front", I don't mean, "make a bee-line for her." The female human can scare easily in that situation.

I know I cashed my laowei-foreigner-bonus check years ago . . . It got me a woman. :lol:

What I'd like to know is how the OP dresses. You say you, "don't dress the same as the people here." That could be good or bad. Can you give us a better idea of what your style is? :neutral:

You can see my style and jimipresley's style to the left. Would you say you dress like us?

Having less than perfect teeth suggests an approach from the other side, I suppose. It took me some time to work out what ni di guo, hao ling qiao di shuang shou, or something like that, meant.

How about some club/ dancing bars in some hotspots.
ex: Luxy, Room 18, Roxy and Barcodes....plenty of young ladies. (you'r allowed to drink over 18yrs old in Taiwan)

Girls are more easier to be approached and talked to. :ponder:
Ooooooops, I did it again.

Uh, I dunno.

You wear green with orange, blue and purple? :doh: Sounds like too much color at once. Try black with one other color and see how that works for ya.

And you feel so Chinese compared to the locals even though you are Chinese? :noway: Again, I dunno. Are you trying to out-Chinese the Chinese? :ponder:

That might work.
