Westerners dating taiwanese women in taiwan
We’ve heard a million times that Japanese brides are the best housewives, Chinese girls are gentle, pretty and fragile like… The thing is, while a marriage between a Western man and an Eastern woman has for centuries been widespread and commonly accepted, couples comprising an Asian man and a western girl used to be frowned upon by bigots and were rare. And yet, the subject of Western wives of Eastern men is nearly an uncharted area, even though cultural differences mixed with peculiarities of female psychology can be intriguing.In Taiwan, more and more local men are longing to find a foreign wife; and more often they choose not a quiet and obedient girl from nearby China or Vietnam, but a loud redheaded Australian or a perky blue-eyed Russian.An “attractive” Asian woman (as per sensationalized by their media) is almost pre-pubescent in body shape.

And it’s not that some of these guys don’t deserve incredible women, I just wonder if they’re getting the incredible women for the right reasons. Anyway, so as you can imagine most foreign guys (meaning non-Taiwanese) do not have a lot of interest in foreign (non-Taiwanese) women.
