10 Reasons TAIWANESE Are NOT Friendly or Social! But Very Closed-Off, Cold, Repressed, Uptight, Prudish, Overly Restrictive, Reclusive, Soulless, Unnatural, and Awkward!

"If Taiwan is so friendly, then how come no one wants to be your friend?" - A simple question that stumps everybody.

Dear All,
I don't understand something. Why does everyone or most people online claim that Taiwan is "very friendly" and that the people are very warm, open, wonderful, etc? For example, see these blog posts:

My big question about that is: How can Taiwan be friendly if no one wants to be your friend? And everyone ignores you and treats you like you don't exist? How is that friendly or warm or social?

Every time I ask that question to Taiwanese locals or pro-Taiwan foreigners, they get stumped and tongue tied and have no answer. Yet they continue to spout "Taiwan is friendly" like a parrot as though they were part of some religious cult and brainwashed. I don't understand what they're smoking.
