So... is it really that impossible for a white girl to date here?

I'm sure there are many Taiwanese guys who returned from US/Canada to work in Taiwan... many of these guys are 'Americanized' and so I'm sure you wouldn't have any problems finding them. Newer generations are quite tall actually...

They're easy to spot (so I'm told) as the locals can always tell that I grew up outside of Taiwan, even though I can speak both Mandarin and Taiwanese fluently (thanks to my parents who have never allowed me to forget my roots).

Women in general should have no problem being 'not celibate' I'd think :wink:

Just shake your thang at a local club and you'd get 5-6 guys trying to take you home :discodance:

You seemed surprised that locals can tell. I can almost always tell an ABC on the MRT without them saying a word. Furthermore your accented Mandarin is probably why they know immediately that you did not grow up in Taiwan.

rockinrobin714, I would recommend going to WAX on a Wednesday night. There will be a nice mix of students from Shi-Da as well as locals. You can meet guys from Taiwan, the US, England, South America, Africa, Vietnam etc. Furthermore it will only set you back 100NT.

1. I speak NO Chinese. I'm planning on taking classes while I'm here, but regardless, there is no way I can date someone who doesn't speak good English.

There are was to remedy that.

There are a fair number of larger Taiwanese men, but chances are you're going to stick out anyway. You're unlikely to fade into the background, so embrace it.

Let your victim target know what'll happen if he doesn't come along quietly.

Look at it this way: any lily-livered guy who's going to be scared off isn't going to be worth the time, and you won't have to invest any in learning that because those punks will opt out right off the bat. That'll leave you with a smaller but higher quality pool of guys to choose from.

If you are interested in dating Taiwanese guys, you will have no difficulties finding some willing guys. Especially if you're not planning on getting too serious. (same as any other guy on the planet) Unfortunately, they're not always all that good in bed. But if you manage to get one to stick around for longer than three months or so it is possible to get them to improve in that area. For a better sexual experience, try some Japanese guys.
I've learned that sex is better with somebody you like anyways. While the one-night stand hunt might be fun, the sex is almost never good. Or maybe I've just been in Taiwan too long!

Someone once gave me (a white woman in Taiwan) some advice about exploring any latent lesbian tendencies. I haven't tried that yet, though.

When I first came here, I was older than you, but still pretty young. I'm slightly tall for an American girl, but not terribly tall. I have, and had, been generously blessed by the booby fairy, as well. (That's a plus, just in case you're too young to have figured that out yet.) I had no problems with dating. Really. I had plenty of guys interested in sampeling a new "flavor." But they DID all expect me to be very round heeled.

But when I got tired of three date wonders (I you're very round heeled it will be one night stands--most of the time, they gave up befor I gave in), and I decided I wanted a real relationship --that was near impossible.

Eventually, I did manage to make the biggest mistake of my life and get married to a local man. I'm divorced now and honey, if I were going to date another Taiwanese man, he'd have to be MORE HOT than the guy in my avatar and sign a waver that our relationship was nothing but sexual hedonism and he'd promise to be out the door faster than free potatos in Ireland! And that's just SOOOO unlikely because, as the above poster states, Taiwanese men just aren't known for their sexual prowesness.

Be careful what you wish for. That's all I'm saying.

I had a 180cm blonde relative in my wedding here in Taiwan and most guys was quite eager to have a picture together with her.
They like European girls, but might not know/dear to get to know them.

A friend of my wife was in UK as a student and he told me he had a few western girlfriends there, but when I asked my wife if this was true she told me he is the sort of guy that have one nighters.

I once knew a girl here that was quite solid that told me she would not mind a Taiwanese guy, but they would only come to her when drunk and start to brag about money and cars. If sober they would be scared because she was stronger then them, talking louder then them and her footsteps where louder.

Take your time and don't take it too serious and just see if you can find a guy that respond positive when you show interest in him.

They are sad to the deepest thread of their souls. They cry in dignity. But nobody swears to take revenge. Instead they want even more humanity and democracy. That is one of the most remarkable strengths of that little country."

Do everything you can to understand the local culture, and make a lot of friends. Things will work out for the best either way if you do that.

If you just want to get laid, I imagine you'll always find someone willing to have a roll in the hay. Way back in my partying days, my local drinking buddies were always asking me how they could "make sex" with a foreign woman.
Come on baby, you know you my home slice.

Well my 28 year old MBA student friend would not mind a roll in the hay with a foreign women. But I doubt you would enjoy dating him.
