Dating in korea for foreign women
The number of foreign spouses living here has risen rapidly in recent years, a development linked to economic development.
However, international couples and families face stigmatization, and in the dating scene, conditions vary by race and economic background.
I got to the bus stop a few minutes early and was just admiring the scenery- yesterday it had rained, so today the skies were completely blue and clear. Then, this Korean guy appears out of thin air, a centimetre away from face, stares at me and just blurts out “boypurenduh isseoyo? ) He caught me off guard so I just walked away from him, gave him a firm yes and nice snide look. A lot of Korean men (not all, but a lot) have less respect towards foreign girls than they do towards Korean girls.
I wish I had made a bit of a scene and told him to fuck off, but as it always goes, we only know the best thing to do in hindsight. There is a sentiment here that foreign girls make good girlfriends, but they’re not marriage material.
I want to get real and show that life here isn’t all cherry blossoms, unicorns and nice pay cheques. This morning I woke up and went through the same routine I follow everyday.
Unfortunately, foreigners who come here make big mistakes when it comes to meeting and dating Korean women.my Korean co-teacher, had an idea for our open class. When you stand up to clear your tray, you’ll look really fat! I wasn’t too keen on the idea of humiliating myself in front of all my students and the classroom evaluators by acting as the stereotypical fat Westerner, but I wasn’t opposed to the idea either.
