Dating a younger korean man
Regardless, it’s good to see guys putting as much effort into looking nice and “dolling” up, but they would expect you to do the same. For instance, while it’s extremely subtle, they may exert more authority or expect you to show more “child-like” behaviors. In Korea, age determines how you refer to one another (unlike in Canada where everyone calls each other names).
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.So in my experience, they put you on a pedestal and subtlety judge you.Once you break into the group, they will love and protect you forever, but it’s really hard to break into the bubble.It’s partly because many of my Korean friends think there is no such thing as friendship between a girl and a guy.Meeting friends of a Korean boyfriend is one of the most stressful parts of the ordeal, imo.– 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).
– Anything heavy or difficult to do, they feel responsible to solve/do it for the girl.
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.
In comparison to guys I’ve dated from other culture, Korean guys are great at keeping in touch, constantly.
This made it hard for me to adapt to ABC guys that were texting 2,3 messages per day or every two three days because Korean guys will text you every day. It’s not that they’re more/less into you; I think it’s a norm.
Getting permission almost never worked because they’d be calling constantly and checking up on her. Okay, I may be exaggerating a tiny bit, but Korean couples tend to be extremely bonded and with such bond comes such craziness. I think breakups rarely end in good terms among Korean couples.
