Tips for dating a girl
If you’re visiting Korea from another country on vacation or as a new resident of Korea, beware that you will instantly have some dating misconceptions assigned to you whether you like it or not.
In Korean dating culture, the assumption of visitors from other countries (especially young white men) is that you’re a player or a womanizer.
It doesn’t matter if this couldn’t be further from the truth — it’s an instant association that gets made, so you’re pretty much walking around with the label “CAUTION: playboy” above your head as you make your way through Korea. This is not an instant deal breaker, and if you ask out a Korean woman that you have chemistry with, there’s a very good chance she’ll accept your invitation and go out with you.
That being said, if you begin dating each other, she’ll also treat you as guilty until proven otherwise.
While this has been considered normal and still is by many, Korean dating culture has begun to shift to a new, more modern paradigm.
The moral of the story is assume that you’ll need to pay, but don’t keep your new girlfriend or date from paying if she’s like to pick up the tab for dessert or coffee.
Ah, the age old question — who should pay at the end of the date?
Everyone has an opinion one way or another, and Korean women are no different in that regard.
You’re not alone — Korean women are absolutely sought after, and for good reason!
While obviously everyone is different, it’s safe to say that there are plenty of beautiful, intelligent, interesting Korean women around the world, so more than likely you’ll fall pretty hard for a Korean woman at some point in your life.
