Foreign guys’ opinions about Taiwanese girls

Filed under: Uncategorized — minimax @ 5:46 am

How many foreign friends do you have who live in Taiwan? What is their opinion of Taiwan and Taiwanese? How do you feel overall about the Westerners living in Taiwan? How well do you think foreigners are treated in Taiwan? How well do you think you were treated when you were traveling or living in foreign countries? Do you think Taiwanese treat foreigners differently than people in other countries treat foreigners? If so, why do you think this is?

1 Taiwanese women…
A are too easy to get into bed.
B don’t have any of their own ideas.
C worship Westerners too much.

Which do you think is the foreigner’s real opinion? Do you think that’s right? Do you think any of the sentences about Taiwanese women is true? Do you think any of them are true about Taiwanese men? Do you think any of the sentences are true about you?

Taiwanese girls worship Westerners too much. The truth is, a lot of foreigners in Taiwan are scum, but they live like kings. Are Taiwanese men that bad? I think these Westerner worshippers are sick in the head!

What things that this foreigner says do you think are true about Taiwanese women? What things do you think are wrong? Do you think Westerners are “better” than Taiwanese in some way?

2 Taiwanese women are too…
A bad-tempered.
B bossy.
C stingy.

Which do you think is the foreigner’s real opinion? Do you think that’s right? Do you think any of the sentences about Taiwanese women is true? Do you think any of them are true about Taiwanese men? Do you think any of the sentences are true about you? How about your partner? Which kind of partner do you think is the worst–a stingy one, a bossy one, or a bad-tempered one? Why?

I used to think that Asian women were very kind and gentle, but after I came to Taiwan, I found out that I was wrong. Taiwanese women say they want men and women to be equal but they still expect their boyfriends to pay for everything when they go out. They act like princesses, always telling their boyfriends what to do.

What things that this foreigner says do you think are true about Taiwanese women? What things do you think are wrong? Which of the things that the foreigner describes have you done? Which has your partner done? If they did, what did you do?

3 Taiwanese women don’t have…
A big enough breasts.
B big enough butts.
C enough ambition.

Which do you think is the foreigner’s real opinion? Do you think that’s right? Do you think any of the sentences about Taiwanese women is true? Do you think any of them are true about Taiwanese men? Do you think most men really do care about how large a woman’s breasts are? How about how big her butt is? How about how ambitious she is?

Taiwanese girls have one big problem: they have no butt! Most of the girls here only care about their breasts, but not having a nice butt is really terrible. Taiwanese girls don’t seem to worry at all about what their butts look like. They just let them stay flat and start sagging. Sometimes they even wear pants or skirts that show just how bad their butts look, without even realizing it. Even though your butt is in the back so you don’t see it much yourself, please don’t forget about what it looks like to other people!

What things that this foreigner says do you think are true about Taiwanese women? What things do you think are wrong? Do you pay much attention to what your butt looks like? What about other people’s?

4 Taiwanese women think…
A a foreigner in Taiwan should be able to speak Chinese well.
B if I am their boyfriend it means I have to teach them English.
C saying “I love you” means “I want to marry you”.

Which do you think is the foreigner’s real opinion? Do you think that’s right? Do you think any of the sentences about Taiwanese women is true? Do you think any of them are true about Taiwanese men? Would you expect a foreign lover to speak to you in English? Do you think foreigners in Taiwan should learn Chinese, or is it not that important?

For foreigners, saying I love you is very normal, but things are different in Taiwan. I used to say I love you to my girlfriends, but when they heard that, they would start thinking about getting married.

What things that this foreigner says do you think are true about Taiwanese women? What things do you think are wrong? If you think the foreigner is right, do you think the same thing is also true when Taiwanese women are with Taiwanese men? Why do you think there is a difference in how easily Taiwanese and Westerners say I love you? Have you ever said those words to someone?

5 Taiwanese women…
A are narcissists.
B spend too much time shopping.
C worry too much about losing weight.

Which do you think is the foreigner’s real opinion? Do you think that’s right? Do you think any of the sentences about Taiwanese women is true? Do you think any of them are true about Taiwanese men? Which, if any, of the answers describes you?

Taiwanese girls are really too thin. And all they talk about is how they want to lose weight. They all want to be the thinnest, but why? It’s sick!

What things that this foreigner says do you think are true about Taiwanese women? What things do you think are wrong? Have you noticed that Taiwanese are not as thin as they used to be? Are you trying to lose weight now? Have you ever tried to lose weight in the past? If so, how did you try to lose weight?

6 In bed, Taiwanese women act like they’re…
A dead fish.
B lunatics.
C queens.

Which do you think is the foreigner’s real opinion? Do you think that’s right? Do you think any of the sentences about Taiwanese women is true? Do you think any of them are true about Taiwanese men? Which of the sentences best describes you?

Taiwanese women don’t know much about sex. When you’re making love to them, you have to show them what to do. Also, Taiwanese girls don’t make much noise or even move around very much. When you’re having sex with them it’s like being in bed with a dead fish!

What things that this foreigner says do you think are true about Taiwanese women? What things do you think are wrong? Do you think you are very knowledgeable about or skilled at sex?

  1. Wow…that’s a lot of questions…!! I happened to pass by your blog when I was searching about Taiwanese guys/men. Not sure if this is going to be of any help (ex. hw, survey) but I’m going to go ahead and answer most of them briefly.

    1 Taiwanese women…
    A are too easy to get into bed.
    B don’t have any of their own ideas.
    C worship Westerners too much.

    It really depends…since it seems that you’re focusing more on this happening in Taiwan, I would say that most Taiwanese girls/guys would date foreigners out of curiosity, assuming that they rarely travel outside of the country. Curiosity may lead to any of the choices you listed above. You would say that foreigners, the minority, in Taiwan are scumbags but if the situation is reversed, it could be the same that Taiwanese aren’t so good either.

    2 Taiwanese women are too…
    A bad-tempered.
    B bossy.
    C stingy.

    I don’t believe that there’s any specific trait that can sum up the whole female population in Taiwan excluding foreigners. It all depends on the person.

    “I used to think that Asian women were very kind and gentle, but after I came to Taiwan, I found out that I was wrong. Taiwanese women say they want men and women to be equal but they still expect their boyfriends to pay for everything when they go out. They act like princesses, always telling their boyfriends what to do.”

    lol…you know what, I agree with you to some degree on this one. Somehow, some Asian women think they can have their way with boyfriends or guys who are pursuing them. My mom specifically tells me not to trouble guys and go dutch when I go on dates. Even though the Asian women you met are like that, not every Asian woman is like what you described. Telling a guy what to do and expecting them to pay isn’t equality at all. Keep your eyes open, I’m sure you’ll find one who is independent and really wants equality between women and men.

    3 Taiwanese women don’t have…
    A big enough breasts.
    B big enough butts.
    C enough ambition.

    “Taiwanese girls have one big problem: they have no butt! Most of the girls here only care about their breasts, but not having a nice butt is really terrible. Taiwanese girls don’t seem to worry at all about what their butts look like. They just let them stay flat and start sagging. Sometimes they even wear pants or skirts that show just how bad their butts look, without even realizing it. Even though your butt is in the back so you don’t see it much yourself, please don’t forget about what it looks like to other people!”

    Very stereotypical. It seems that most girls like flat butts though. It’s nice to know that someone actually thinks having a butt is good! Although I’m a Taiwanese, I still don’t understand why having a larger butt is undesirable here… I agree that Most Taiwanese women focus more on their breasts than butts.

    4 Taiwanese women think…
    A a foreigner in Taiwan should be able to speak Chinese well.
    B if I am their boyfriend it means I have to teach them English.
    C saying “I love you” means “I want to marry you”.

    I wouldn’t think that a foreigner has to speak Mandarin well in order to be in Taiwan. That’s discriminatory and foreigners can get by with a couple Mandarin words/phrases. NO. You don’t have to teach them English. No offense to any woman you met in Taiwan who does this but I think they’re using you.

    “For foreigners, saying I love you is very normal, but things are different in Taiwan. I used to say I love you to my girlfriends, but when they heard that, they would start thinking about getting married.”

    Wow…I would never think that a guy saying “I love you” is a sign of a soon-to-be marriage. It could be that since Taiwanese guys are more shy and 悶燒 (keep emotions to themselves) that to hear I love you from a guy hardly ever happens for Taiwanese women. And when they do, perhaps, that’s when Taiwanese guys is thinking about having a future with Taiwanese women.

    5 Taiwanese women…
    A are narcissists.
    B spend too much time shopping.
    C worry too much about losing weight.

    “Taiwanese girls are really too thin. And all they talk about is how they want to lose weight. They all want to be the thinnest, but why? It’s sick!”

    I think all girls spend a lot of time shopping, not just Taiwanese women. Narcissists…I’m not so sure. If you mean taking a lot of 自拍, then yes.
    I SO SO SO agree with you that Taiwanese girls are too skinny. Some of them are so thin that they seem ill. It’s part of the culture to be slim, I suppose. I was like that before, but I got over it when I was in college in the U.S. When I look back at my photos, I realized how unhealthy I looked.

    6 In bed, Taiwanese women act like they’re…
    A dead fish.
    B lunatics.
    C queens.

    “Taiwanese women don’t know much about sex. When you’re making love to them, you have to show them what to do. Also, Taiwanese girls don’t make much noise or even move around very much. When you’re having sex with them it’s like being in bed with a dead fish!”

    HAHAHA!! I’m a virgin so I really don’t know what you’re talking about. It sounds rather funny though. I hear that if a girl is a virgin, they usually don’t move much or make noises. It’s normal that most Taiwanese women don’t know much about sex. Taiwanese culture is considered conservative, even though we’re influenced by Western culture(s) gradually.

  2. Thanks for your carefully considered comments!

    Just to clarify, those quotes are not mine. This post (as well as nearly all the others on the blog) are just handouts I use in my English course.

    This particular post was translated from an article in a Taiwanese magazine (壹週刊). The opinions (and quotes) are those of six different foreigners who were interviewed for the article.

    It’s actually in quiz form, and the answers are 1C, 2B, 3B, 4C, 5C, 6A.
