If you’re coming to Korea and want a serious relationship with a Korean woman, think twice!These are my conclusions: Korea has some of the most beautiful and fun women in the world, but if you want to have a serious relationship with them in Korea you need to understand and accept a few things.So they will act like they don’t like things more, will throw comments about your choices, BUT ultimately they want you to be in control and are more comfortable with it as well. This is even stronger for when you’re approaching a random woman at the bookstore, or coffee shop or even the subway.You want to assume that she will be shocked and even frightened when you are going up to talk to her.
Korean women think that the man is responsible for escalating the date into something more. Now I won’t get into the ‘whys’ or the “it shouldn’t be that way” debates.
Think about your hobbies, passions, ethnicity, home country, and find your image that radiates from who you are. This is even more important for you because otherwise you will just come across as an English-Speaking Korean. #2 Not wanting to learn about their world One thing that just gets be cringing is how many foreigners I meet who have lived here for years and know nothing about the culture besides Chuseok and Chinese New Years vacation! Imagine foreigners coming to your home country and not speaking the language. You see, it’s not that you speak the language that counts, it’s that you’re willing to learn about them and their world.
The reason why most Gyopos tend to be treated like Koreans who want to be foreigners is because they come across as Koreans who want to be foreigners. For example, I’m from Texas, am learning Korean as a hobby, and have lived in the Mediterranean. Do women come up to me and start conversations with me? Most foreigners here don’t even speak basic Korean! This gets you lots of points when it comes to meeting and dating Korean women.
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!
😉 ) 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.
#3 Don’t take advantage of that first impression Ever wondered why Italians and French were so successful at scoring dates with American or Canadian women? Unfortunately, when I ride the subway, take the bus, hang out in Itaewon I see too many foreigners who look the same! They look like English teachers who just got off of work and are about to go to a bar. They remind me more of the typical businessman adjosshi than the exciting and mysterious foreigner.
