But, as a friend or two have told me, they stick to their own, and they are significantly less likely to make the first move. Men have no problem dating in Taiwan. More, truth be told. For Western women on the other hand…good luck. Those that are rarely look for commitment. The problems with dating are many. Taiwanese men are very shy and timid when it comes to Western women. They are very afraid to approach us, and generally, most will not.

Taiwanese dating culture is very different from the west. In fact, most of my Taiwanese friends agree that there IS no dating culture in Taiwan. Couples get together by hanging out in large groups of friends, or often meet at work, through other social acquaintances, or their parents. The concept of going out on a date with someone relatively unknown is foreign to the Taiwanese lifestyle. Ultimately, the cultural gap is just too big for most Western women. Seriously, what would you do if it worked out? The expected role for a woman in Taiwan is considerably different, both in society and in the home, than for Westerners.
What self-respecting Western woman would allow herself to become subsumed into male and family dominated Taiwanese culture?
Who wants to be treated like a second class citizen after being raised to be a first? That leaves the Expats.
Here we circle back to quality and quantity. Quantity should be self-explanatory. We are a minority. You have to sort through a lot of riffraff to meet anyone of quality. I do have a lot of male friends that I respect and care about that I do not lump into that category. But it is still the vast majority. Come over here and stay for a year or two. It will be the time of your life. It can suck or be fun depending on your outlook. At least you have the option for fun…. Well, it does for the 20 year old employees, but not for a 42 year old HR manager!

Have you given up finding Mr Right on Taiwan? I feel like for a western woman the odds of finding a decent gent out there are pretty high. I liked how you how no problems calling them trash.. Looks like I need to move to Taiwan and teach English. I need the easy life. It was too annoying and too much of a disappointment for me to continue to actively date. Hopefully in the spring after my surgery things will start looking up. Hopefully, in a spectacular way.
Dating in Taiwan for Western Women
This contradicts with your earlier statements. On one hand you say that Taiwanese people are friendly and nice, and then you say they will treat you like a second-class citizen. That does not make any sense. Do anyone treat you like crap in Taiwan? Have you lived with a bunch of Taiwanese families? Do you see the females being treated like second-class citizens? Or is that stuff you just hear randomly? In fact, I hear that a lot of foreign women end up dating Black guys since both parties are the undesirables.
I think it probably sucks for black guys here; prejudice is rampant. I was living in america and you know those stupid discriminations against Asian guys are all around the country, but i still can date those pretty girls because i approached them, of course at the beginning not went well, it will get better later on.
Maybe I will keep trying.
A lot of the western guys here are kind of lame. I just wish the Taiwanese guys would be less shy and more approachable. As a western woman in Taiwan, I have not had problems finding Taiwanese men.

Be patient with her language abilities. If the conversation slows down, give her some time to think of what should come next. Keep her out of situations where she might be embarrassed by her English. Because of this, you should do the same. For us in the west, flirting is how things get started when you meet someone that you like. Go Indirect And Nonverbal First of all, Taiwanese people are notorious for being indirect in their communication.
