There may be some cultural clashes. Where are you from? that might make a difference.

Marrying is quite easy, staying together can be the tricky bit.  Not for me but from others Iíve heard.

I've heard plenty of stories. Basically people, usually the women, feeling family pressure to get married and have kids. So they find some sucker and get hitched, realize marriage can be difficult and then get a divorce. It's not a problem specific to Korea, but it seems the societal pressure is more pronounced.

A good marriage needs a spacious home so you can go into another room or space and get away from each other.  Sometimes some privacy is great.

It seems like the OP is, currently, neither living in Korea nor in a relationship with a Korean woman. Some might find it odd that he would want to find a "good Korean woman" for marriage if he has no connections to the country

Meehhhhh, borderline weird.

The guy is coming here for the long term, it would seem. He's clearly single (one hopes, haha). Why wouldn't he be curious about the dating scene here?

We can all say "don't date exclusively one race!" but the fact is that most women in Korea are Korean. (SHOCKING!).

Granted, there are filters like age and language ability. The vast majority aren't going to speak English well enough to go into a relationship with a foreigner, but the fact is, the dating pool for  a) foreigner women here and b) Koreans here are................ ........ similar? Obviously, I don't have statistics.

But again, do we really think he's gonna date South African girls? Why? He's opening a business here. Why would he date a Canadian or an Irish woman? So they can fukk off back home in a few years? So they can move to Vietnam and teach there? That's hardly desirable.


The guy is putting down roots here, at least for the medium term. He wants to find someone to date and start a family. He's not coming here for two years and trying to jump every local with a pulse.

So, yeah, on first glance, the post might seem a little weird or targeted but THINK ABOUT why they're coming. It makes sense to ask about Korean dating/marriage life if you're coming here long term and aren't that familiar with the society and norms.

It seems like the OP is, currently, neither living in Korea nor in a relationship with a Korean woman. Some might find it odd that he would want to find a "good Korean woman" for marriage if he has no connections to the country

The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

exactly! and why not just ask about the dating scene and not finding a "good Korean women"?? Also dumb question, obvious parameters like cultural and language differences the dating scene is the same as in other countries. If he wants to move here and set roots than okay date, fall in love, get married.

Yeah, dating in Saudi Arabia is the same as anywhere else. just a few language and cultural differences.

Re-read this sentence........... .............

Maybe you've been here a while and things are normal for you, but I do remember the weeks leading up to the flight here and thinking "WTF am I doing??"

Yes, the "shared humanity" ideal is noble and yes, we all want prosperity and time with our friends and family, we love a good meal etc. Humans are MORE alike than they are different, but that's not advice to live by on the micro-level, which would be personal interactions and intimate relationships.

Maybe they should've worded the question differently. If you say I'm moving to X country and want to marry X person. You either want to gain citizenship or you have a fetish. Because what should have been said is hey..i'm moving to X country and plan to make a life there. I hope to fall in love and get married. What is the dating scene like? You know like a NORMAL person

meh, he's moving here to start a business, so probably long term. maybe slightly odd he chose to talk about marriage right off the bat, but whatever

not sure why georgina's got a stick up her arse about all this though

this is basically what he said but i chalked up his specific language usage to english being a second language

It could just be language issues. I wouldn't have gone in as hard as georgina  :laugh: But the thread title and the way he worded it definitely had a hint of weirdness about it to me.

If it's language issues then they should learn that it's weird and correct themselves in the future. Maybe I came off too much but as a women of color who had men fetish me for my ethnicity it is WEIRD and gross.

Sorry but you're not special. Every white guy here has been through the same thing living in an Asian country.
