During and after college, I have maintained a diverse group of friends and have had the good fortune to travel to various places in Asia including a two year stint in Korea and Taiwan, as well as less extensive periods in Hong Kong, Japan, and mainland China.
Moreover, I have dated both intra- and inter-racially (with Black women among others) and was most recently in a 3 year relationship with a Black American woman (who self-identified as such).
You can see this contradictory expectation in female heroines of many K-dramas.
The beautiful female protagonist is independent and savvy at her office, but in front of a guy she likes, she’s one step behind, submissive and gentle.
Men all over the world have different tastes and you should accept dating is going to be a miss and hit.
To compose this guide, I spoke with fellow bloggers, Korean guys, friends who have Korean boyfriends and husbands, and what advice they would give to girls dating in Korea.
I love to interact with new people and have no problem making new friends.
My dad is of mixed European ancestry and self-identifies as White, and my mom is half Puerto Rican and half Italian and identifies as multi-racial (however, she acknowledges that she can oftentimes pass for White and as such does benefit from White privilege).
I grew up in a predominantly White area and was one of the only Asian American students for the entirety of my grammar and high school career.
Compared to a very sexless Japan, a foreign woman’s chances of dating a Korean man is quite good.
In my experience, Korean guys I meet are more open-minded and have studied abroad thus susceptible to other ideas outside his country.
