The fact of the matter is, if you can’t communicate with her then building anything ‘long term’ will be difficult, if not impossible.
Sure, you can get involved, and even have a relationship started, but eventually she and you will want to talk about deeper things and feelings.
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!
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.
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.
Communication issues Dating someone from another culture is challenging not only because of the ‘language problem’.
You also have to understand and accept that the other person has other values and beliefs too!
For Korean women, they hold values and beliefs that their society and culture have given them ever since they were little girls.
Contrary to what many clueless people say: dating or getting seriously involved with a Korean woman, isn’t easy at all.
If you’re coming to Korea and want a serious relationship with a Korean woman, think twice!
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.
