When you know more about him, he can pick you up and drop you off at home, but don’t invite him in just yet – even if he pleads that he urgently has to use your bathroom.Our friend fell for that ploy on a first date, and when she offered her hand as he was leaving, he suddenly French-kissed her, slobbering all over her face. DON’T behave like a kid in a candy store full of online temptations.You might be able to point out that Korean culture is firmly founded on traditional values, and therefore the girls truly may be as coy as they seem…but I’m here to tell you, they’re not.Korean girls do just about everything else American girls do, the only differences is they keep it behind closed doors, and they don’t talk about it openly.

Expecting a Cameron Diaz look-alike, he was shocked to meet a morbidly obese woman in a moo-moo. On the other hand, we’ve dated men who were relieved and delighted that we simply looked like our pictures.
(And believe us, we’re not Cameron.) They were grateful enough to stay through the crème brulée.
My view of American dating is this: start dating as soon as possible, as immaturely as possible.
