Compared to a very sexless Japan, a foreign woman’s chances of dating a Korean man is quite good.
In my experience, Korean guys I meet are more open-minded and have studied abroad thus susceptible to other ideas outside his country.
She should be resilient but needs to be rescued when hardship arises. I could concede that independent and dependent tendencies might coexist in a person, certainly, but often they don’t go together.
I thought it more a fantasy of men who craved unequal power relations with their girlfriends than a reality.
Here’s your crash course 101 before you go into this guide: dating rules vary from country to country.
Korean males in general have bigger builds and more dominant body-language than most other Asians.First, I would just like to commend you for the outstanding work you have done and thank you for navigating these issues of race in the way that you do.It is never easy to tackle since everyone’s feelings and opinions regarding their own background as well as the backgrounds of others oftentimes vary greatly; however, your honest engagement and down-to-earth personality make all the difference.Soon you’ll discover what you can expect and decide for yourself if dating one is worth it.Whereas a Western man values independence and equality it’s not so for a Korean man.Before I get to the heart of my response, perhaps I should preface it with a little information about myself.I am a 32 year old Korean American man who was adopted from South Korea when I was nine months old.I’m not exactly quiet, and I’m definitely not the ‘submissive girl’ that many people see South Korean girls as. But somehow, my personality became a problem when I started dating men in South Korea at the age of 20. I thought, is my outgoing personality — which was attractive to them in the beginning — an obstacle to developing a stable relationship? A bunch of my girlfriends had similar worries when dating South Korean men.Many men approached me, expressing an interest in my outgoing personality. But sooner or later, they started to complain about things that energize my life, what I think are important, like interacting with people and having fun at interesting social gatherings. The biggest source of complaint was the irony of men applying different standards on their female friends and “girlfriend.” Some guys I knew loved hanging out with girls whom they called cool and funny — for example, girls who could drink two bottles of soju straight.I see myself as a lively, bright and sociable girl.I love to interact with new people and have no problem making new friends.During and after college, I have maintained a diverse group of friends and have had the good fortune to travel to various places in Asia including a two year stint in Korea and Taiwan, as well as less extensive periods in Hong Kong, Japan, and mainland China.Moreover, I have dated both intra- and inter-racially (with Black women among others) and was most recently in a 3 year relationship with a Black American woman (who self-identified as such). My name is Tim and I recently saw a Youtube video you had posted wherein you interviewed Asian men and Black American women in NYC about their thoughts regarding interracial dating and marriage.
