Well, I am just worried because I heard so many stories of fully Taiwanese and mixed couples having troubles thanks to the parents who thinks one side is not good enough for their beloved sons/daughters that I am a little worried. But my bf seems like a perfectly normal person so I guess his parents can't be to crazy.
Any stories of your own about the "meet my parents" in Taiwan?
It doesn't matter whether you're Taiwanese or a foreigner. Parents here have a very good idea of what kind of partner they want their kids to match up with, and even if someone is Taiwanese, they may still not fit the bill. That happens a lot here too, and percentage wise may be just as much or more than Foreigner+Taiwanese hook ups.
That's why most couples here wait so long before they introduce their partner to their parents.
Well yes. But I think the problem is that Taiwanese kids do listen to their parents much more If my parents had a problem, that would be not perfect but I would not break up for that reason. My bf doesn't seem like one of these guys, but who knows... I think seeing how someone acts around parents is really a different thing, and is very important. Taiwanese kids are very filial, which is not bad I guess. But well will see.
And today my other foreign friend was telling me how being blond is not good for me in the eyes of potential Taiwanese in-laws.
