They text you 24/7, constantly wanting to know what you are doing, how you are feeling,.My Korean girlfriend told me that this was a way for them to initially express interest, and when they felt more comfortable with you they backed off.
I have hesitated to write this post, as it’s quite personal and I don’t want to offend anyone as I do try to be sensitive to the cultural norms of the country that I am living in.
However, I have had some interesting experiences while dating in Korea, and felt that I needed to share some of them.
This post certainly doesn’t apply to all Korean men, and I did find that I had vastly different experiences when dating men who had experience living in another country besides Korea and who were completely fluent in English.
I have some lovely Korean friends who have told me I’ve just had bad luck, and that could be true.
I had one guy who was texting me like this quite frequently, and I didn’t respond one day as I was busy at work.
He proceeded to send me a bunch of slurry text messages later in the night after he had obviously had a few too many saying that it was all ‘one-sided love’ and how I had humiliated him.As soon as he started drinking, I noticed a dramatic shift in his sweet persona.He moved to my side of the table and started rubbing my leg, and saying in this whiny voice, Everyone knows that the best way to get a girl to sleep with you is to whine at them until they break down.I wouldn’t take back any of these dates or experiences as they have helped me grow, but I sure as hell wouldn’t repeat them.I think that some of Korean mens’ opinions and views on Western women can be a different from our cultural expectations and what we are used to, and that can lend itself to unfortunate situations.He rode horses in Gangnam, he dressed well, and he had a good job.
