Yesterday I read a post on a forum about Taiwanese girls. Today I decided to write this rant…
Let me first say this:
- Winston Wu is one of the guys who opened my eyes to the world of international dating.
- I respect him, his readers, and his beliefs (they are similar to mine).
- This is not a diss or a hate article.
I do NOT agree with THIS forum post.
- I’ve been to Taipei.
- I know a guy who has a wonderful Taiwanese girlfriend.
- I’m friends with one. (I interviewed her for this article).
Winston, I would love to meet you one day, but I can’t accept that you call Taiwanese girls cold, shallow, superficial, judgmental, prudish and terrible beyond words…
5 Facts about Taiwanese Girls Winston Wu Got (Kind of) Right
According to Winston, Taiwan is the most prudish country in the world.
Well, I know from my own experience that this is not true and you just have to watch the first couple of seconds of the following video to know what I’m talking about…
Does that mean that Winston is completely wrong?
There are parts of his bitter forum rant that are in fact true…just not in the way he believes…
1. WARNING: Taiwanese Girls Have the Russian Wall (But Not Online)
Winston says that “Taiwanese girls are extremely cold and closed.”
I agree with that. They are cold and closed…but only for about sixty seconds. They are definitely not unapproachable. They are just not as easy to approach as girls from other Asian countries.
Approach a Thai girl and she’ll smile, even if she hates you. Why? Smiling is a cultural rule.
Approach a Taiwanese girl and she’ll smile, but only if she likes you. Why? Smiling is not a cultural rule.
It’s true. Taiwanese girls act cold and distant when you approach them, just like Russian and Ukrainian women. All you have to do is to keep going. Survive 60 seconds of grumpy cat and you can enjoy 60 days of cuddly cat.
The only way to avoid the 60 seconds of ice is to contact Taiwanese singles online. Sorry, the dating service Taiwan Cupid doesn’t exist, but you can chat with thousands of Taiwanese girls on AsianDating.
2. Taiwanese Women Don’t Flirt But Take Action
Winston Wu believes that Taiwanese women view flirting as a taboo.
Yes, they can’t flirt. That’s true.
The Taiwanese culture doesn’t encourage flirting and showing affection in public. But that doesn’t mean that the girls don’t want it. God, they love it when a guy flirts with them, kisses their hand, and does all the things with them that they’ve seen in Western movies.
They just don’t know how to react.
You need to understand that shyness does not equal disinterest. These ladies show you when they are not interested. And they show you when they are interested. In fact, they are the only Asian girls who are not afraid to lead you to the next step of the seduction.
3. Taiwanese Girls Are More Into Rules than German Girls
Now I know why Winston calls Taiwanese women uptight and inhuman. They are a bit like Germans.
- They love their rules.
- They love their queues.
- They do everything for their employers
When it comes to their rules they are better Germans than me. You could say that this makes them conformists. But don’t fool yourself. They secretly fantasize about an adventurous guy who breaks the rules that her daddies want them to adhere to.
4. Taiwanese Men Outnumber Girls in Clubs (Just Like In Every Other Country)
Men outnumber women in the night clubs of Taiwan. That’s correct. But please name one country, besides Ukraine, where this is not the case. That’s why picking up girls in clubs sucks. Nevertheless, I can see more girls than I could handle…
The only reason why guys go to clubs is because they hope to get laid. Of course there are more guys than women. Visit a club in Bangkok and you’ll see the same picture. Heck, don’t be so narrow-minded and believe that bars and clubs ARE the Taiwanese dating scene.
The good girls of Taiwan don’t even go there.
5. Some Taiwanese Girls Act like Divas (Winston, You’re Right!)
Okay, I can’t argue with that.
This is the one stereotype about Taiwanese women that is in fact true. Due to the economic development that the country experienced within the past few years, they can act like spoilt little divas.
It’s your job to bring her down to earth.
Make clear that you don’t accept disrespectful behavior and that you accept a diva temper tantrum once, but not twice. Set boundaries and she’ll respect you more than any of her past boyfriends.
17 Reasons Why Winston Wu Doesn’t Understand Taiwanese Girls
Yes Winston, Taiwanese women can be cold and closed when you approach them. And yes, they are also not the most flirtatious creatures on the planet.
But that doesn’t justify calling them…
- Simple and primitive.
- Shallow and superficial.
- Prudish and fake.
I’ve been to Taipei and I interviewed the Taiwanese girl in my language school (I’m currently studying Thai). My experience tells me that these beautiful Asian ladies are anything but terrible beyond words.
Here’s how they REALLY are…
6. Taiwanese Girls are Not Picky Because Thousands of Them Are Lonely
Winston, you said that Taiwanese girls are extremely picky and I don’t believe that. Just look at the data. The numbers don’t lie.
In Taipei there are only 91.8 men for every 100 women.
That’s the exact opposite of China and even though there are more men than women in China, there are still thousands of girls who use dating apps and chat rooms to meet Western men.
Why do you think online dating is so popular in Taiwan?
There are literally millions of lonely girls who dream of meeting the right guy. Some of them cry themselves to sleep at night because they are sick and tired of being alone.
7. Taiwanese Girls are Interested in Western Culture (And Not Insular)
You call them insular and narrow. I call them open-minded and interested.
Due to the political past of their country, many Taiwanese girls are interested in politics, democracy and Western values. Heck, you are not talking to a Chinese chick that has never seen Facebook or Twitter.
The girls in Taipei, Taichung, Tainan and other parts of the country are more open-minded and liberal that the girls from other Asian countries. That’s a fact.
But hey, maybe Winston is right.
Maybe they are interested in these topics but it’s impossible to have an intelligent and deep conversation with them…
8. Just Yesterday I Had an Interesting Conversations with My Taiwanese Friend
Sorry, I have to say no, no and no.
- I had a two-hour conversation with a girl in Taipei.
- I asked my friend what he talks about with his girlfriend.
- Just Yesterday I had an amazing conversation with my friend from the language school.
The moral of the story:
It is possible to have a deep, interesting, and meaningful conversation with Taiwanese girls…at least with the girls I know.
9. Taiwanese Girls are Intellectually Challenging (When They’re Not Staring at Their Smartphone)
In fact, it would be weird if it was impossible to have deep conversations with them. And it would also be even weirder if they were as anti-intellectualism as Winston Wu says.
I mean, they have the fourth highest IQ in the world.
That’s not too bad, especially if you consider the fact that there are 196 countries in the world. The truth is that most Taiwanese ladies have above average intelligence and are happy to discuss intellectual topics…at least when they don’t stare at their smartphone.
10. Taiwanese Girls are Passive in Bed (But Not Prudish)
Prudish is the wrong word because prudish means that they are shocked by matters relating to sex and nudity. That’s how the dictionary defines it. But that’s not how the local girls are.
They are passive, but not prudish. That’s a big difference!
They are active when it comes to leading you to the next step (with signals, invitations), but they are extremely passive when it comes to sexual escalation. That shouldn’t surprise you. They are Asian. Of course Taiwanese women are passive in bed.
Remember the video that I shared with you in the beginning?
Yes, the one with the moaning girl.
Is it really that prudish to ride a guy and moan with pleasure?
And Winston, Taiwan is definitely not the most prudish country in the world. I guess you’ve heard about Myanmar, Malaysia, Nepal and Butan. Kissing in public is forbidden in Malaysia. Your Malaysian girlfriend might get locked up. Your Taiwanese girlfriend doesn’t have to worry about that.
Sex in Taiwan might be a taboo in the movies. But it’s not a taboo in the bedrooms.
11. Taiwanese Babes are Not THAT Flakey Winston
Are Taiwanese girls really as flakey as Winston says?
I mean, sure. If you approach a 20-year-old party girl in a club, she’ll probably flake. But when it comes to online dating, I don’t agree with Winston.
There are thousands of Taiwanese mail order brides who are looking for love online. These women are looking for a serious relationship and marriage.
Give me one reason why they should flake.
For Christ’s sake, have you been to Colombia? That’s what I call flakey!
12. Your Future Taiwanese Girlfriend Shows up on Time
Taiwanese girls are so damn good at being German. They don’t just love rules. They show up on time.
That fills my German heart with joy.
Yes, they are Asian and yes, they are punctual. I know that it sounds like a contradiction, but it’s true. According to my friend, it’s a no-go to be late. Man, that’s so different than in other parts of Asia.
I can’t even tell you how many hours I’ve wasted waiting for girls in Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam…
13. Taiwanese Girls are Surprisingly Honest (Not Inhuman)
They are not mean, heartless and inhuman. They are honest.
When a Taiwanese girl doesn’t like you, she’ll let you know. And yes, I know that this is quite unusual for Asian girls. Some men might argue that a rejection is the same as a heartless, cold, and inhuman action. But it’s not.
Not every girl will like you. That’s a fact that you have to accept, even if your ego rebels.
Ask yourself this:
Do you want to waste your time with a girl who smiles for three hours before she rejects you or do you want to get rejected within three seconds?
I rather want an honest girl who tells me to fuck off than a girl who wastes my precious time, just because she wants to be nice.
14. Taiwanese Girls Act Cute (Just Like All Other Asian Girls)
According to Winston Wu, cute Taiwanese girls have a “fake innocence” and a “cheesy corny gay ass hello kitty expression.”
Listen very carefully:
If you don’t like girls who act cute, don’t date Asian girls. It’s that simple.
As an Asian man Winston should know that this is a part of the Asian dating culture. In the West women act manly to get what they want. In the east they act cute. And it’s neither gay, nor corny, nor does it have to do anything with hello kitty…even though Asian women love hello kitty.
15. Hot Taiwanese Girls Want to Be Hotter (Since when is This Superficial?)
Since when are girls who care about their looks superficial? And since when is this bad?
Let’s be honest…
Reasons why Winston Wu and I say “hell no!” to dating in the West is because…
- The women are not feminine.
- They don’t care about their physique.
- They don’t care about the way they present themselves.
Taiwanese girls, on the other hand, are obsessed with being thin, having soft skin, and wearing nice clothes. In fact, they are so obsessed with their bodies that you might save one or two lives if you tell them that they are too thin.
16. Dating a Taiwanese Girl is Easy Because She Speaks the Same Language
Dating in Taiwan is already easy for foreigners, but it gets even easier when you have a look at their English proficiency index.
Taiwanese women are more fluent in English than…
- Japanese girls.
- Vietnamese girls.
- Thai girls.
- Cambodian girls.
- Chinese girls.
I don’t say that Taiwanese girls are easy, but it’s definitely easy to get to know them, to set up dates with them, and to connect with them because they speak the same language as you.
I’m serious. Contact some of the female members on AsianDating and you’ll get answers that contain more than one word.
What if you still don’t believe me?
Maybe you believe your own eyes…
17. Dating a Xicanmei Makes it Even Easier
A Xicanmei is a hot Taiwanese woman who exclusively dates white Western men.
Okay, that doesn’t help Winston because he’s Asian, but you get the point. Dating these girls is easier than stealing a soother from a baby. But I have to warn you. She might see you as a status symbol and not as a partner.
That’s one of the reasons why some foreigners in Taiwan stick to expat dating.
But there are only a few Caucasian-obsessed Xicanmei. Many local girls want to date you for the right reasons.
18. Dating in Taiwan is Not a Total Cockblock (Her Granny Loves You)
Okay Winston, I agree with you that Taiwanese guys love to cockblock you in nightclubs. Guys in China, Shanghai, and even in Thailand do the same. Let’s face it. Most Asian men get furious when they see how a white guy hits on “one of their girls”.
But again, picking up girls in clubs sucks in every country.
The good news is that the family of your Taiwanese girlfriend won’t cockblock you. In my article about the women in China, I told you that a Chinese grandmother will probably hate you. You don’t have to worry about that when you’re dating in Taiwan.
The culture and the customs are different.
Taiwanese families are a lot more open about Western men dating their daughters and granddaughters than the girls from the Mainland. Heck, it’s even more accepted than in Japan and South Korea.
19. Sexy Taiwanese Girls are Less Materialistic than Chinese Girls (But More Demanding)
There’s more good news:
Taiwanese chicks are not as materialistic as the women in China.
However, they are more demanding.
The salaries of Taiwanese women are more than five times as high as the salaries in China. Therefore, your Taiwanese girlfriend has a higher standard of living, more hobbies, and higher expectations. She doesn’t want a new handbag. She wants to spend time with you and do fun things.
20. Your Taiwanese Girlfriend is Financially Independent (Is that Really Depriving?)
Did I really just say that the hottest Taiwanese girls don’t need your money?
Yep, that’s what I said. And it’s true.
There’s a high chance that…
- She earns as much as you.
- She doesn’t need your credit card.
- She is completely financially independent.
Is that really so depriving, Winston?
Unless you have a fragile ego that enjoys it when a woman is begging you for money, you should be happy that she meets you because she wants to date you and not because she wants to have an intimate relationship with your wallet.
21. The Women in Taiwan are Way More Liberal than in The Movies
The movies don’t show kissing scenes. So what?
I live in Thailand and I’ve never seen a kissing scene in a movie. Does that mean that all Thai women are prudish?
I know a lot of guys who would deny that.
Taiwan is the most liberal country in Asia, especially when it comes to sex. I mean, they were the first Asian country that recognized same-sex marriage.
I bet my ass that a Taiwanese girl has a more liberal attitude towards one-night stands and fast sex than a Chinese girl.
So much to the most prudish country in Asia…
22. It’s Not Hard at All to Get them to Respond on Dating Sites
Winston says that it’s hard to get them to respond on dating sites. I say that it’s pretty easy.
Why don’t you find it out for yourself?
- Check out my AsianDating review
- Join the site for free.
- Contact 20 Taiwanese girls (You can use the exact message I share in the review).
You’ll have at least one reply in your inbox after 24 hours. I guarantee it.
Summed Up Wisdom
I read Winston Wu’s forum post about Taiwanese girls and I was shocked. He’s one of the guys who inspired me to embark on my international dating journey. Nevertheless, I had to reveal the truth…
And the truth is that the women from Taiwan are only cold when you give up and they are only narrow-minded if you don’t engage them in interesting conversations. In fact, Taiwanese women are some of the most smartest and liberal women in Asia.
It’s definitely not the most prudish country in the world and it’s also not hard to get a response when you contact Taiwanese girls online. Heck, most of the young girls speak English AND are financially independent. You are not forced to learn another language and you are also not forced to pay for her meal. Is that really so depriving?
