Dating a female fighter

I’m sure this is not specific to Korean men, but due to the rather distinct gender roles.

Dating a Korean guy has enhanced my expat experience: helping me out with problems, translating, going on trips together in his car, learning some of the language, the compliments, and no game playing.

Again, this country has only recently opened its doors to foreigners and a lot of misinformation about foreigners is still going around.

It takes time to get used to the Korean way of life and thinking.

Some of the major differences I noticed is there can’t be platonic relationships between the sexes, age is power in Korea, his family (at the beginning) weren’t that accepting of me because I’m not Korean, physical affection here is a no-no, the Aegyo concept, and Korea views appearance or even status in society more seriously than in my country. In my country, it doesnt matter how old you are or your position. They believe in K-drama actors or idols and their characters to the point of thinking all or most Korean men look like one or act like one.

Another misconception is living in Korea is heavenly or a paradise. Many struggles can be felt here especially among foreigners.
