Taiwan sex hookup
Last week when having lunch with a friend, we talked about the top ten list I wrote about the Things I hate in Taiwan. The second moment, right on the heels of the first, is when I realized that somewhere in this city there had to be, at that very moment, two Taiwanese people eating lunch and bitching about foreigners and all the things they hate about us. Foreigners throw lots of loud parties that turn into orgies (this perception is the reason some Taiwanese won’t rent to foreigners), and they aren’t trustworthy. In the midst of us bitching about things we hate, I had a moment of clarity. The first being, I could NOT believe that for the life of me, I had forgotten to include people chewing with their mouths open and smacking their lips. Foreigners don’t corner the market on bitchy snotty conversations, after all. ( I’m thinking this has to do with jaywalking, as not too many foreigners drive. Foreigners are loud and call attention t themselves in places where it is inappropriate like the MRT, buses, museums, and other areas.
Take the viral piece by Nancy Jo Sales, “Tinder and the Dawn of the Dating Apocalypse,” in the current issue of The entire article functions as a doomsday warning against dating apps, which Sales claims offer only romantically impoverished and ultimately damaging interactions.It’s a confusing world, because the more available everything becomes, the less satisfying every interaction becomes. I contacted him a few times afterward, but never heard back and took the hint and moved on.I have no problem with people (safely) exploring their sexuality with strangers from the internet or mobile apps. Being the most overly sensitive homosexual in the world, was a little hurt by it.What troubles me is the disconnect I see in the Gays I know – a strong desire for love and companionship combined with an emotional/sexual ADD. Why did every single gay couple I know break up last year? Not like crazy hurt, but hurt enough to be like “I’m never doing that again! Like it’s kind of ridiculous to expect someone you meet on Grindr to be looking for his husband, it’s a sex app.Why does it seem like all the Gay guys I know are struggling to find romantic success when there are so many readily available, quality guys around? About four years ago, a long time before I met my last boyfriend, I had Grindr installed on my phone. A few months ago, at the behest of my friends and family who were tired of my lovelorn post-breakup wallowing, I joined OKCupid.I didn’t have a smartphone for starters, but there was absolutely no point in using Tinder, or any dating app for that matter, in an isolated Wild West town of 9,000 people where everyone knew each other.
I tried using Match.com, and it was painfully awkward, especially when everyone knows you as the editor of the local newspaper.
WHAT’S IN A PROFILEExpected were the trying-too-hard-to-look-cute girls making duck faces and ridiculous poses, the obviously fake accounts with the sexy poses and revealing clothing, and the ones with no photos of themselves — only clouds, rabbits and in one case, a ruler.
There was a lack of female expats or locals with good English skills — as opposed to what I was hearing from my female colleague regarding the male counterparts.
It’s not like the old days when you had to put on a decent outfit, go to a bar, and use your in-person social skills to make a connection.
Now you can just go on Grindr, shop for a guy, and hookup with the best one you can get.
Highly unrestricted men do tend to be more manipulative, aggressive, and psychopathic—aka, they’re more often jerks.
