So you start dating a local Korean girl, but quickly discover that dating a Korean girl is quite different than dating back home.
Your new relationship is full of cultural differences, linguistic misunderstandings and prejudice.
She may be aggressive about this, so be ready to hand over your phone.
She wants to check your messages and photos and interrogate you about every female name and photo.
A Korean woman depends more on her family for support than a western woman.
Koreans tend to live with their family until they are married off in their late 20s or early 30s.
I suggest you be clear early in the relationship about your future plan about returning home and if that plan includes her.The information in this article is going to assume that you are indeed looking for a more substantial relationship rather than something that is short term. You just arrived as a tourist, a new English teacher, a new exchange student or a factory worker.Your goal is not only to travel, work or study here, but also to live here and experience the culture.If you are stubborn and insist on not showing your phone, she will eventually get her hands on it and check it whether you like it or not.Some Korean women, especially older ones, tend to have a fantasy of meeting a foreigner and escaping patriarchal Korean society. You are clearly a more positive alternative than marrying a Korean guy and having to deal with an evil Korean mother-in-law or other intrusive family members.The best thing to overcome loneliness and improve your adjustment to the country would be to start dating a Korean woman.
