Dating a younger korean man
It’s partly because many of my Korean friends think there is no such thing as friendship between a girl and a guy.
They often dress like they’ve popped out of print ads in magazines.It seems like Korean guys are in demand because many of my single girlfriends have been telling me how much they’d like to learn Korean just to date Korean boys. Quite understandable considering how men are portrayed in all these Korean MVs, dramas, and movies.But really, that’s like saying I want to date a Lawyer after watching Suite. They sometimes go MIA, put friends over you, breaks your heart, forget your birthday etc.But that doesn’t mean its all roses and butterflies; there are also things that are particularly stressful when dating Korean guys. Not all, but surely many Korean boyfriends will ask to check your phone, kakaotalk or what-nots.They expect to know your entire schedule in and out and also expects you to update him on your life constantly.Some extremely self-aware guys would put on bb-cream, color contact lens (this one is more rare), and fake heels inside the shoes.
But don’t be too impressed because it’s probably 50% for other people to see, 30% for themselves, and 20% for you.
I once forgot one of these many celebrations previously-unknown-to-me, and all I can say is that that day didn’t end well.
As much as guys go crazy with these celebrations, girls also put equal effort in preparing – often some hand-made stuff for their special other.
But I must say that there is some merit to Korean boys’ courting style that is hard to match.
So here, I list out some of the common occurrences of dating a Korean guy based on my personal experience and of the experiences of my lovely Korean girlfriends.
– When walking on the sidewalk, they always make sure they are on the outer lane closer to the cars – They will take off their coat for you in cold weather – They arrive ten minutes early to dates and don’t mind waiting few minutes (I think some expect girls to be late).
