taiwan women as spreaders of misery

i joined the taiwan foriegn spouse club many years ago. no, it's not a real club, just a figure of speech. but i hear a lot of the same thing coming from these guys, ie how taiwan women are one the one hand wonderful, and on the other, a source of unhappiness.
this i beleive, stems from the fact that taiwan women are themselves perpetually unhappy. anybody who puts her standards in the stratosphere is bound to be dissapointed, especially when you expect others to make you happy.
taiwan women have been taught, thru their moms, girlfriends, assorted magazines, and ditzy talk show guests that it is a man's responsiblity to provide happiness for them. men are also supposed to be "ti tieh" (thoughtful is one translation), caring, and at the same time strong, good providers, etc. basically the same demands as women in the west put on men.
the difference is, taiwan women really think they're going to get all this.most western women eventually grow up and accept the guy for who he is. taiwan women never do. they drill their fucked up, sleep over party chat/what a guy should be standard into the fucking ground. they never give up,relentlessly making sure that they get their guy to where they can brag on him. basically, chinese culture in a nutshell: face, face, face!!!
then, when their guy can't meet this impossible task (pulling her out of her pit of self imposed misery), these women bury themselves in cheap novels in which the "ideal" man treats the woman in an "ideal" way.
of course, these women are setting themselves up for the ultimate scam, which is the subject of another article.
i was always taught that happiness is between you and God. nobody can "make" you happy. you have to make yourself happy. you have to find the happiness in whatever situation you are in, and be thankful for what and whom you have in your life, dispite their faults and shortcomings.
why are taiwan women so perpetually unhappy? it's because they don't have faith. they can only see 3 feet in front of them, and that's to bury whatever special, unique qualities their man had in the graveyard of some arbitrary "standard".
God help us.

the taiwan adjustment bureau

matt damon rocks. best movie i've seen in a while. especially since it's real.
that's right, it exists, in taiwan at least. if you've ever thought someone was pulling strings to make sure your shit doesn't get off the ground, you might have good reason for such suspicions.
a LOT of what goes on in Taiwan is manipulated. from pop stars who sing the same, government approved crap, to rigged singing contests, to backbiting foriegners (a prime source of doing in), to territorial-ism by locals, the deck is stacked.
one run in i had with the adjustment bureau went like this:
i got a call from a bushiban (they had obtained my number from my workplace somehow), saying that i had gone into their school and broken a vase on purpose. they said the guy who did it had shown up a few days before saying he was me! the students who saw him wreck the vase recognized him and i was called. i asked them why weren't the cops calling me then? they said the police had already investigated but the video tape wasn't clear, etc.
i have been canceled out of a lot of opportunities to play music thanks to territorialism by locals.or there's always some hitch where you can't do it because you're a foriegner. every time you think you can get a little ahead, they move the "stop go no further" sign to right in front of you!
i recently made friends with a foriegner. after not having seen her for a few months, i happened to run into her near my house. when i said "hi" she looked like she had seen the devil and wanted nothing to do with me. every time i see her now she acts this way. we parted the first meeting in a friendly way. i hadn't seen her between the two times i mentioned.what happened between those two times?
backstabbing foriegners would be my guess.but what would their purpose be in doing that? i treat everyone i meet with respect, nor have i tried to take anything from anyone. as far as i know, i haven't wronged anyone beyond expressing unpopular opinions on the net (which is my right. you don't like it, suck my dick).
is there an agenda bureau in taiwan that tries to keep the status quo? maybe,maybe not. but definitely something's up. maybe just greed and conflict of interests.
maybe just some small people who will do anything to hang onto whatever piece of this island they percieve to be theirs.

are taiwan women spoiled bitches?

the title was a question. no need to be offended by my question. you can be offended by my answer.

yes, they are.

as an adult english teacher, i listen to a lot of answers to topic questions in my class. when the book gets around to love and relationships you always hear them saying the same shit:

" i want a guy who is tall, understands me, is responsible, etc"

the problem with this is they never really define what responsible is. from my experience, what they mean by responsible is "safe". they want some castrated man who never takes chances, never moves in a direction that might make them feel unsafe, never walks the path less chosen. they want a guy who is bent to their wishes for "the dream" ie, the house, the car, the baby, the whole nine yards.
nothing wrong with those things, except that they have become the "price for admission" so to speak, rather than the result of two people's love for one another.
then taiwan women always talk about how they want someone who understands them. by this, i take it to mean they want an extention of their spoiling family who will put up with their temper tantrums and stupidity. these women are basically in the market for either daddy or their older brother, someone who is used to their bullshit.
expecting someone to understand you is the height of immaturity. we should seek more to understand others than to be understood. the world owes us nothing, but we live in it,and should learn to adapt to it, not the other way around.
i find taiwan women to be utterly selfish and self centered. lately i look at them with a mild disgust, despite their physical beauty.
ain't no pussy worth their crap.
