Before you make any accusations of me making sweeping generalizations, note that my points here are completely biased according to my own sample size. White guys are much more laid back and are happy to carry on the conversation for another 30 minutes while the check is laying on the table; some are even willing to go dutch to further showcase their support towards gender equality. But, enzyme or no enzyme, don’t think this will deter an asian guy from schooling you in a drinking game though. Asian culture emphasizes family and collectivity, so it is quite the norm to take care of your parents while living under the same roof. There are many behaviours that are emphasized in a traditional asian culture.
I’m not saying EVERYONE has this particular fetish, but it is fairly common. The stereotypical skinny, awkward and shy Asian man is not something most women find attractive. This is where the divide happens, and it can be seen on the video linked on the site. Unfortunately, the western girl is used to and expects, most of the time, the western approach. I am not sure how true this is outside Korea, but I cannot tell you the number of times I have heard this. I asked him, after we started dating, WHY he didn’t approach me. I was making eyes at him all night and even invited him to sit with me…four times. These three things combined, stereotypes or not, really help to explain the breakdown.
Something about the Asian woman, be it the assumed submissiveness, her typical slim size or her ‘exotic’ features, attract men. Western men, are confident and secure that they can do this approach. In his words, and so many others, there is this idea in the Asian man’s mind that the western girl is JUST NOT INTERESTED. So, no matter how approachable, or interested, or excited the western girl is to meet the Asian guy, if it gets to that point, the man believes it’s not right.
Challenge him to a game of Pai Gow or Big 2 and he’ll drink you under the table. Also, living with a romantic partner pre-marriage is generally looked down upon, which is another reason why many asians wait until marriage to move out. With a big emphasis on “taking care” of those around you.
One would assume that dating apps would be huge in Korea for two reasons; everyone is wired into smart phones and ‘couple culture’ encompasses Korean holidays and leisure activity – there is even a day to mourn the singles.
