We’re not even talking about the language barrier yet.So imagine you are attracted to a Korean woman, and she is attracted to you.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.You need to understand that dating a foreigner is still seen as taboo here.For one thing, many Korean women have the fears that I’ve talked about earlier.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!
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.
Sure, my experience is that of a typical guy in his late-twenties living in Seoul. Many people have and are both in happy relationships and happily married in Korea.
Not only that, but you will both have different expectations in your relationship.
Foreigners aren’t in Korea forever Finally, you need to ask yourself one question: Is South Korea a place you plan on settling in or not?
Many foreigners choose to leave after a taste of Korea and that makes locals conclude that foreigners aren’t in Korea for the long term.
