Dating in korean
I’ve never written about dating before on this blog.I’ve also never written about my proclivity towards AMWF relationships. I guess I don’t want people thinking it’s the only reason why I live here, in Asia.Western women like sex and they have sex a lot, this is what Asian guys think.It is the most undeniable, indisputable fact about being a Westerner trying to make relationships work in Asia.4.) Don’t Let Yourself Be Used For English If you are a Western girl living in South Korea, you are most likely an English teacher and this can be a sticky situation because maybe you don’t mind being used for English at first but sooner or later, you’re gonna get burned.All of my friends and myself included, we all ran into this problem multiple times.I thought, And sometimes it was, but oftentimes it really wasn’t.

Get a Korean best friend and when you start finding you’re interested in a guy or he’s interested in you, get him to have coffee with you and your girlfriend, she’ll use her 눈치 to help you figure out who’s sincere and who’s straight up playing games with your heart.
2.) Remember That Western Women Have a Reputation in Asia I would estimate that at least half of my first dates in Korea ended up with the guy trying to have sex with me.
Watching shows like Eat Your Kimchi might help a tiny bit but in my experience nothing helped better than reading and having good Korean friends.
The book that prepared me the best for my move to South Korea was without a doubt Korea: Impossible Country by Daniel Tudor.
