Dragon, abcdavid01, and I are some of those overly brainy guys around 20 who just don't seem to do well with US women.

Taiwanese international students who had just arrived in California. I would show them pictures of my Mexican gf, and they'd say, "Wow, she's so pretty." Then I would say, "You look pretty too!" I would do the very same thing in Mexico, but elicit very different responses.

You can even ask my wealthy retired uncle in Silicon Valley who is a Lockheed engineer and whiz in Calculus, which means he is very accuracy-oriented. Even he admits that Taiwanese girls aren't approachable to strangers, as well as Momopi.
You said your parents are Taiwanese right? Why don't you ask them if cold approach works in Taiwan? lol. If you do, you'll see that they will say the same thing as everyone else.
My parents were born and raised in Taiwan, and immigrated to the US in the 1980's.
My dad is actually one of those accuracy-oriented Silicon Valley whizzes too. According to my parents, dating in Taiwan during the 1970's and 1980's was "very simple" (很單純) and that most people were able to find partners. But I keep telling them that times have changed. They're not sure what dating in Taiwan is like anymore, since they haven't lived there ever since they emigrated before the end of KMT martial law.
They did say that Taiwanese and Taiwanese immigrants meet potential mates mostly through school, church, family, and friends. Whenever I'm chatting up strangers in public (whether in the US or Taiwan), my dad would often tell me to talk to guys, not to girls. But my mom has suggested that I cold approach girls in the university library though, haha. As a naturally friendly guy, I like to chat up random people that I'd meet. I've actually had some Chinese friends ask me where I get the guts to cold approach strangers!
Once during my high school years, my dad took me on a tour around Taiwan. One time I started chatting up a guy my age on the bus, about how Taiwan seems so cool to me as a Taiwanese American. But he didn't talk much at all, and just nodded his head, saying stuff like "OK, very nice" and "bye bye." My dad told me, "It's because here in Taiwan, people just don't talk to strangers on the bus
Another time when I was trying to talk to a Taiwanese-American girl on the plane who replied with only a few words and gave me blank looks, my dad said, "She's not interested, you don't need to keep bothering her." I was a bit taken back by that comment.
But in Taiwan, my dad could very easily cold-approach middle-aged guys he didn't know, and just chat them up right away as if they're old friends.
He'd do this all the time.

Remember, I have relatives in Taipei as well. They would be more than happy to try to finally keep me away from Latinas and SE Asians by hooking me up with a local girl. Also, my family has intimate roots in Taipei, with my dad's family living in the very heart of Taipei's Zhongzheng District (中正區). My family members have been graduates of Jianguo Secondary School, Taipei No. 1 Girl's Secondary, National Taiwan University, Chinese Culture University, and so on. My grandparents had served in the KMT armed forces, and my grandmother now has property in Taipei which she rents out, like Rock. My parents were born in Taipei and had spent almost all of their pre-US lives in Taipei. Having family well rooted in downtown Taipei is a huge difference from having family in hiding out in the Chiayi suburbs.
So you can imagine, if you were a Taiwanese immigrant very intimately familiar with Taipei, and you had a son who kept running off to rural Mexico to hang out with country girls, you'd probably be delighted when he finally gets his a** over to Taipei instead.
And of course, there's Rock and Monkro.
Winston wrote:Finally, why don't you test what I say and what Rock says by going to free dating sites and writing Taiwanese girls?
I don't like dating sites. The girls usually get way too many responses and suitors. None of the wonderful girls I've met have ever used a dating site before.
