Taiwan dating culture
I am aware that parents around here tend to push their kinds to make family early. The question is what is the best timing to bring up the topic.
Maybe I am fearful girl, but if the boy starts to talk about kinds after we just met, it really scares me.
I am sorry that you have dated with the wrong guys as I am sure there are some gentlemen out there in Taiwan.
Sherry A Taiwanese girl who happily married with an American and living in the States.
To me, topics of kids is for people who do not know each other well NO topic.
Seems there is some unwritten rule that girl and boy are supposed to meet every day during the first month of going out. I wonder whether my standars are too “European” or just too demanding.
Instead, I could not believe to my ears when hearing: In the world as I know it (maybe it is just European thing), whoever offers better argument, gets to decide.
It might not be purely about logic, but definitely it is just gender what delegates the power.
Of course there are cultural differences and you are the one to decide how much of that you can take /adjust to it.
Taiwan has many guys who are interested in genuinely treating a woman well – not assuming automatic authority, locking anyone in golden cages or insisting on seeing you constantly.
I also see it this way: things are bound to change.
Actually, I think you just need to meet a few more men in different circumstances.
It sounds like the men you dated went in to it with the expectation of you being a serious girlfriend with a view to marriage.
From what I understand, arranged marriage in Taiwan started declining maybe 50 years after that, and didn’t become uncommon until fairly recently (and even now, matchmakers exist).
