You also need to understand that in general Korean society tends to value:– harmony more than justice – the group more than the individual – conformity more than independence – silence more than sound – not being seen as wrong more than being right – social status more than the person who has it These differences in values are what frustrates foreigners the most both in sexual and non-sexual relationships (you can read more about Korean dating values by clicking on the link.) If you plan on coming to Korea and what to date Korean women, you need to understand that in most cases, what they value and seek out of a relationship is different than what you might expect from your home country…radically different!We’re not even talking about the language barrier yet.For Korean women, they hold values and beliefs that their society and culture have given them ever since they were little girls.For one thing, many Korean women have the fears that I’ve talked about earlier.
If you’re coming to Korea and want a serious relationship with a Korean woman, think twice!
To add to the fire, foreigners are harshly misrepresented in the Korean media, especially English Teachers.
The standard viewpoint of English Teachers is that they’re “losers back home” who can’t get a proper job.
The reason why I pose this question to you because you have to be honest with both yourself and with the women you’re with.
I personally believe that if you’re not planning on staying here for more than a year, then just have fun and enjoy your time here (just don’t lie to the women you’re with! If you’re like me, and you’re seriously considering getting involved with a Korean woman, then understand the obstacles and roadblocks you’ll facing and start looking for that diamond in the rough! In fact I believe that if you’re willing to accept these facts (with an emphasis on “accept”) you can find ways around it.
😉 )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.
