Dating a Korean is a fun and sometimes frustrating experience for expats. It helps to know the cultural norms to avoid major mistakes.
It can happen naturally if you’re going to school or working at a company here, because you’ll get plenty of chances without even trying.
Korean universities or companies host numerous events such as orientation, retreats, team building workshops and get-togethers where you can meet someone new or start a romantic relationship.
Despite the many advantages like you get to spend a lot of time together, it’s good to be careful being CC since it can ruin your other relationships or reputation. It will be also uncomfortable seeing that person if you happen to breakup. Most Koreans recommend CC, but with someone from another major or club, instead of the same major, so you can avoid them if necessary.
Not all Koreans want to date foreigners due to cultural differences and fear/prejudice. From my experience, probably only 10 percent are really interested.
For men, consider trying things that women traditionally do such as singing and dancing. Asking for a girl’s number on the street will automatically flag you as a player in their mind, unless there’s a reason to contact each other. A good friend of mine accidentally bumped into a girl on the subway. They’re now happily married.
For women, think about gaming or sports clubs. Western women are considered exotic and liberal in Korea. You’ll have to feel out the situation carefully if you’re looking for something serious.
Language exchange is always a safe choice to start testing the waters, because the people there are open-minded enough to want to improve their English skills. And, in the worst case you can improve your Korean!
The standard dating course is a restaurant (mostly Italian or Western style) then a cafe, plus something extra like watching a movie, taking photos at studios or booths, etc.
However, most Koreans live with their parents until they get married or move to another city for school/work. In order to get some privacy, couples go to a motel (A.K.A. love motel) where they can stay for a few hours (15-20 USD) or overnight (50 USD).
For celebrations or anniversaries, Korean couples go on a 2 or 3-day trip to Gangwon-do, Jeju Island or Busan. Before COVID-19, they used to go overseas together as well.
This is where free online hookup Omaha your uniqueness can shine through. Take locals to non-Korean locales that mainly expats know about. If you don’t know any, join a FB group for local foreign restaurants and events. There are tons of interesting places in Seoul like sheep cafes, archery cafes and gaming rooms where you can do something different.
Every individual has the potential to create change, whether in their life, their community, or the world. The transformative power of education is what unlocks that potential.
