Korean american dating


I’ve been living in South Korea for more than 3 years, going on dozens of dates and then dating many Korean women not because I wanted to, but because of I had no other choice: I’m a foreigner. I’ve read books about the country, am learning the language, and have helped both foreigners and Koreans with their dating lives.

In fact it can be downright frustrating no matter how much you love each other!

We’re not even talking about the language barrier yet.

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.

I hate to say it, but foreigners will never be a part of Korean society as we know it: harmonious, functional, “pure”… I tell them that they will not be the same person when they come back.

I’m also not saying that there aren’t valid reasons for the circumstances we face.

Too many foreigners have been careless and foolish here.

For one thing, many Korean women have the fears that I’ve talked about earlier.
