IвЂ™m going to simply place this on the market: if We had been single in Korea, i’dnвЂ™t exactly be described as a hot commodity to Koreans. Even though this is just a concept of mine, i believe i’ve seen Korean partners sufficient in the previous 4-5 months to feel just like it is true. HereвЂ™s whyвЂ¦
Korean women can be seen by Korean guys as porcelain dolls- pretty, fragile, slim, soft, nutritious, virtuous, and skinned that is extremely fair. Females here donвЂ™t attempt to attain tanned, nicely nicely toned and athletic figures that feamales in the U.S. do. To the contrary, they attempt to be really slim and soft, rather than in every method muscular or tan. Because of this, personally i think that I could snap any of the women in half over my knee if I were ever caught in a cat fight here in Korea. Not too I would personally, though, of course.
Whenever you see partners in public places right here, you may constantly discover that the person has
their hands round the girl, is holding her bag, their shopping bags, and all sorts of the whilst this woman is stiletto that is wearing (i possibly could compose a complete post on Koreans putting on stilettos at all times during the day, while sightseeing, and even though putting on sweat pants, but i shall conserve that for another time). a teacher that is korean of told us that the males right right here definitely want to dote on the girlfriends. They constantly carry the womanвЂ™s bag and so are making contact that is physical them for some reason all of the time. Our instructor additionally told us that Korean ladies whine great deal, and that their boyfriends think itвЂ™s cuteвЂ¦ actually, ladies? Actually?!
We shall acknowledge that whenever We see those kinds of couples whenever IвЂ™m back in the us, We roll my eyes. Right right Here, but, it is more widespread to see. In reality, it really is normal for couples to wearвЂ¦ brace yourselfвЂ¦ matching clothes. IвЂ™m maybe maybe perhaps not dealing with a promise ring or matching bracelets, IвЂ™m speaking about matching black colored and PLAID that is yellow, or matching rugby shirts with matching shorts. (Jason and I really play a game title centered on this trend ( many thanks Britt!); each and every time we come across a matching couple, we need to function as very very very first someone to say вЂњsame-siesвЂќ and now we arrive at strike the loser).
Though itвЂ™s hard on occasion, we donвЂ™t prefer to judge other folks centered on the things I may consider tacky, and so I have actually experimented with explanation with myself as to the reasons this can be the outcome in Korea:
- We’ve heard off their Koreans and foreigners that having a girlfriend or boyfriend isn’t as prevalent because it is right right back in the us. In reality, certainly one of our Korean buddies is obsessed with the notion of getting a girlfriend- that is all he wants but he canвЂ™t appear to get one. It appears if you ask me that since dating just isn’t as casual right here, if you’re in a relationship it makes it that much more special. Men desire to make sure everyone understands the lady is theirs, so fundamentally they’ve been peeing on the territory. perhaps Not certain hey, to each their own if it justifies wearing matching jackets and shirts, but.
- Korean moms and dads are notoriously strict in terms of their childrensвЂ™ spouses. Arranged marriages nevertheless happen right right right here aswell, which claims a complete great deal in regards to the tradition by itself. I could only imagine that secret relationship is common right right right here, and that if the couples are out in general public it might be the only time that they could be together. Therefore, they’ve been as affectionate towards one another if they had the chance as they would be in private. Again, this might be a concept based entirely on my findings, plus in no means reality.
- Due to the fact that ladies in Korea are incredibly thin, fragile-looking, and simply simply take pride in searching pretty all of the time (consequently they are constantly putting on 4-inch heels) i really believe that this creates an extremely feminine and delicate image of females; a graphic which makes the person like to nurture and look after the lady who canвЂ™t raise 15 pounds. Therefore, they enjoy holding their shopping bags along with other things that are heavy.
- A few our buddies right right here in Korea, whom train English and also have Korean buddies, also told us another interesting relationship powerful that I had been thinking really was intense. Whenever a female is with in a relationship, she will not communicate with every other dudes, at all. Evidently it really is an indication of respect to her boyfriend (whom appears to be extremely overly and insecure jealous) and also this means she canвЂ™t also speak with her guy buddies anymore. We nevertheless have actually yet to ensure this with any Koreans myself, however it is interesting that as soon as We heard about any of it, We started observing that couples will never be with other people. They have been either alone, which can be almost all of this couples we see, or these are generally possibly with another few. Possibly this might additionally assist explain why relationships look so different right right right here.
That I have been noting in my head since the moment we arrived here like I mentioned earlier, these are just my thoughts that stem from a few observations. We find these social points to be fascinating and We additionally love individuals viewing and I also have always been quite good at it, if i might state therefore, helping to make me personally a good researcher because of this types of subject. One of my quotes that are favorite from an episode from Sex and also the City: вЂњSome people do arts and crafts. We judge.вЂќ maybe maybe Not I report what I see and hear that I judge people, but. Just sayinвЂ™.
