My point isn’t that my misconceptions are true, but that we all have gross misconceptions based on our experiences.
Korea can be a confusing place for dating as a foreigner.
The language barrier minimizes meaningful conversation and opportunities with the opposite sex. In fact, good luck finding anyone who adequately speaks your language when you walk into a coffee shop; much less lying to her about your knowledge of the author of the book in her hands.
If you are not tall and handsome, your personality risks never being put to proper use because people simply don’t have the time to get to know you.
Given the amount of attention western women get in Korea, I would argue they have a great dating situation. I have to think most women who read the above paragraphs vehemently disagree with my opinions.
I would tell you their criticism is fair, and what I wrote was based on my experiences and misconceptions of dating in Korea.
Western women, on the other hand, are a rarity in Korea.
I’m unsure if there are actually less western females who live in Korea, but they are certainly outnumbered by men in Hongdae or Itaewon on a Saturday night.
