Korean dating edicate
Coming from the West, I feel like we drag the end stages of dating out like a dead horse (at least I do.) I never know when to just own up and stop communicating, and the Korean style of just complete cut-off from communication has definite benefits.
If your new girlfriend wants to go through your phone, don’t deny her request based on principle.They are proud of their traditional culture and their modern economic success.Education is highly valued as the path to status, money and success.While Koreans are generally accepting of any cultural faux pas that visitors make, it’s much better to be informed so you can make the best impression possible.Not only will you honor the group, but you’ll also increase your chances of being invited out again.I had one guy who was texting me like this quite frequently, and I didn’t respond one day as I was busy at work.
He proceeded to send me a bunch of slurry text messages later in the night after he had obviously had a few too many saying that it was all ‘one-sided love’ and how I had humiliated him.
I have some lovely Korean friends who have told me I’ve just had bad luck, and that could be true.
My worst experience while dating a Korean guy came about eight months into my stay in Seoul.
Back when we were elementary school students, our teachers always encouraged us to make mistakes. However, now that we’re a little older and wiser, it’s better if we can avoid them.
This goes doubly for embarrassing cultural mistakes.
If she doesn’t offer, assume that if you’d like to continue this relationship you’ll need to pay for everything the two of you do socially.
