😉 ) In spite of the “integration” that’s been happening in South Korea’s tourism industry, a Korean woman dating a foreign man is frowned upon and a woman’s peers assume that she is unable to find a proper Korean man so she has to settle for a foreigner. I told you, this is going to be brutal, but if you plan on coming here, I want you to know what I wish someone had told me.
I want you to know just what you’re facing so that you won’t be as disappointed as I have been countless times.
Sure, this is rare, but I’ve had it happen and have heard about it happen to too many friends to ignore it. Times are changing but are they changing fast enough so that your Korean girlfriend can feel comfortable enough to just walk with you?
Communication issues Dating someone from another culture is challenging not only because of the ‘language problem’.
Like flying fish that jump out of the water for the first time, they will know that there is more to life than the society in which they grew up in (as for anyone leaving their native surroundings for the first time!
) Some of my Korean friends liked travelling so much that they never really came back.
So imagine you are attracted to a Korean woman, and she is attracted to you.Their bodies might be back in Korea, but their minds and imagination is still overseas. Now with an influx of foreign foods, goods, and people, both men and women are “sampling” foreigners to satisfy their curiosity. Many times I have had women leave our relationship simply because they never saw it as anything serious anyway (Not that there’s anything really wrong with that.) Korean women are starting to explore their sexuality (which is great news) but they would not consider a serious relationship with a foreigner because of the reasons I talk about here.For the last choice, Korean women must seriously consider what their peers will think of them. ” Note: I’m not even speaking for the foreigners who aren’t Westerners.On top of that, you’re going to have communication barriers beyond just language.Finally, you need to ask yourself how long you plan on living in Korea and if it’s worth it at all! When it comes to relationships, the only difference between dating in North Korea and South Korea is that both countries have different governments (Not that I’ve tried anything in North Korea!Armed with their fake degrees, they’ll come to Korea to make more money than they’re worth in the marketplace, or to spread AIDS with everyone who’s wearing a skirt. Korean women either: a/ choose to go overseas and don’t tell their peers about their relationship(s) with foreigners b/ choose to have a fling (or two) with foreigners just to satisfy a curiosity c/ choose to go against their peers and thus against Korean society When my Korean friends go overseas for the first time, I warn them.
