You probably know by now that having an Asian girlfriend is a rite of passage for all white men.
"Date an Asian chick" has become akin to "Go skydiving" or "Live in New York" in the veritable white guy bucket list.
Given our immigrant roots, most Asian girls endure a latent insecurity about everything from our boobs to our patriotism (both things that are just slightly there). But if you're going to lock it down and marry your Oriental princess, you must know one final thing: in Chinese wedding traditions, the groom pays for the wedding.
So, as her white, Jewish (80% of the time), totally-secure-and-normal boyfriend, you better be prepared for when your girlfriend mistakes "soup or salad" for "super salad." And since Asians have eyes like gravy boats, her crying jags are bound to extend late into the night. STEP FOUR: Locking it Down If you've made it this far, then you know all the dirty secrets of dating an Asian girl. You know we pretend to love drinking, even though we turn into full-blown red-faced injuns when we do. (According to my mom, the tradition stems from the groom's family giving the bride's family a cow in exchange for her.) So, if you're going to marry an Asian, get ready to empty your pockets. Of course, because of this, my parents want me to marry a Chinese guy and my brother to marry a white girl.
– If you call them for help in the middle of the night (even at 2,3 in the morning), most of them will help you – On these occasions, I’ve learned that girls should expect the guy to prepare some sort of “surprise” – it’s not very surprising once you realize that it’s always going to be a bouquet of roses, a teddy bear, cake, and candles.
But still, it’s very sweet that guys will go such lengths to do things for the girls they like. But sometimes it’s the guys that are more into stuff like this.
So here, I list out some of the common occurrences of dating a Korean guy based on my personal experience and of the experiences of my lovely Korean girlfriends.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.They expect to know your entire schedule in and out and also expects you to update him on your life constantly.STEP ONE: Finding an Asian Asian girls typically hang out at one of three places: the mall, the library, or Pinkberry. If, by the end of the night, she giggles into her napkin/hand fan, you've got yourself a second date.When you get there, look around: the best Asian girl to pick up will be the one wearing a hoodie and heels (there is always one). As she takes out her phone to tell you, you should make a nice comment about her phone flair (Asian girls always have some bedazzled jank hanging off our phones, usually a cartoon duck or a jade tiger). Asian girls will go on a date with anyone if she can tell a cutesy story about it later: "And then, after he saw my Keroppi keychain, he asked me out at Pinkberry! " STEP TWO: The First Date It doesn't matter where you take an Asian girl on a first date as long as you stick to the following topics of conversation: food, fashion, and making fun of other Asians ("So, your friends just stayed in and did math problems? However, no matter what you do, don't step on the yellow-fever land mine that is acknowledging the Asian fetish.It’s not uncommon for a guy to show up wearing a shirt, khaki, a blazer, matching shoes, and perfectly done hair – to a date at an amusement park.They often dress like they’ve popped out of print ads in magazines., couple data plan (where you have unlimited data between you two), couple diary, couple (fill in your own blank).I know many of my non-Korean friends find this freaky, but I must say small things like same keychains are kind of cute. In general, Korean guys are more “hardworking” when it comes to relationships.Regardless, it’s good to see guys putting as much effort into looking nice and “dolling” up, but they would expect you to do the same. For instance, while it’s extremely subtle, they may exert more authority or expect you to show more “child-like” behaviors. In Korea, age determines how you refer to one another (unlike in Canada where everyone calls each other names).I hear in Canada, guys stop paying after 2,3 dates, or even on second dates it’s common to go dutch. Although there seems to be a shift in this dynamic very recently, it’s still very normal for guys to be the one getting tab all the time. When a guy is older than a girl, the girl refers to this guy as “Oppa.” But it really doesn’t matter how old you are, because if a guy is interested in you, he’ll try to act like an Oppa anyways.
