How to say dating in korean
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.
You need to understand that dating a foreigner is still seen as taboo here.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.😉 ) 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.I want you to know just what you’re facing so that you won’t be as disappointed as I have been countless times.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.
They have to deal with the stares that they’ll be getting on the street, in the subway, when they try to introduce you to their families. If you’re from developing countries or aren’t white, then get ready to deal with worse than what I’m talking about here!
Not to mention the barrage of questions they’ll be getting such as “Is he just another English Teacher? If you’re in Korea, you’ll have to accept the fact that some old man (adjoshi) might chase you down , yelling obscenities at your girlfriend just because she is with you.
Their bodies might be back in Korea, but their minds and imagination is still overseas. Now with an influx of foreign foods, goods, and people, both men and women are “sampling” foreigners to satisfy their curiosity. Many times I have had women leave our relationship simply because they never saw it as anything serious anyway (Not that there’s anything really wrong with that.) Korean women are starting to explore their sexuality (which is great news) but they would not consider a serious relationship with a foreigner because of the reasons I talk about here.
For the last choice, Korean women must seriously consider what their peers will think of them. ” Note: I’m not even speaking for the foreigners who aren’t Westerners.
Contrary to what many clueless people say: dating or getting seriously involved with a Korean woman, isn’t easy at all.
