Dating who pays

Ah, the age old question — who should pay at the end of the date?Everyone has an opinion one way or another, and Korean women are no different in that regard.While obviously everyone is different, it’s safe to say that there are plenty of beautiful, intelligent, interesting Korean women around the world, so more than likely you’ll fall pretty hard for a Korean woman at some point in your life.

Dating who pays

It doesn’t matter if this couldn’t be further from the truth — it’s an instant association that gets made, so you’re pretty much walking around with the label “CAUTION: playboy” above your head as you make your way through Korea. This is not an instant deal breaker, and if you ask out a Korean woman that you have chemistry with, there’s a very good chance she’ll accept your invitation and go out with you.

That being said, if you begin dating each other, she’ll also treat you as guilty until proven otherwise.

As far as gifts go, most Korean women will be receptive to you conveying your affections with lavish gifts and tokens of your love (and honestly, most Korean girls will expect it).

Be prepared to spend big on birthday gifts, and be prepared to also purchase gifts for each of the love-centric Korean holidays.

It’s more than likely that she’ll want to look through your texts and chat history, and she’ll probably comb through your social media to see if there is even a tiny bit of evidence that suggests that you’re a womanizer. If there isn’t, she’ll slowly but surely begin to trust your intentions and your interest in her (and only her).

If your new girlfriend wants to go through your phone, don’t deny her request based on principle.

While this has been considered normal and still is by many, Korean dating culture has begun to shift to a new, more modern paradigm.

The man is still expected to pay for dinner, but if she’d like to, the woman on the date might pay for after dinner soju or ice cream.

She’ll likely know how to turn on the charm and somehow be cute, mysterious, and seductive all at once — you’ll be wrapped around her finger before you know it.

Before you consider approaching a Korean girl, be warned!

The couple would then take turns paying for each stop of the evening — so, for example, if the man paid for dinner, the woman would then pay for soju, then the man could pay for ice cream, etc.
