Dating with korean women
One thing that Korean guys seem to enjoy doing is refer to themselves as “Oppa.” For instance, instead of saying “I’ll buy you dinner/I’ll do that for you,” they will say “Oppa will buy you dinner/ Oppa will do that for you.” Seriously, when a guy that I’m not too interested does this, every bit of hair on my body stands up.
Good thing that comes with this phenomenon is that Korean guys in general are very responsible and almost trained to take care of girls in all ways possible.
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.
Some are really extreme: for instance, once four of my girl friends were out, and my girlfriend’s bf asked her to take a photo of her outfit to make sure it’s not too scandalous. I see tons of Canadian friends being friends with their ex but I rarely see Korean couples continuing to be friends after a break-up.
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.
You get freaking spoiled (sometimes annoyed) by how much they will contact you, but this means anxiety triples when they become MIA.
Do dress up on your dates because these Korean boys will dress up/suit up every time they take you out.
