Dating a Korean: 101

Intercultural dating is more common than many people realize – especially when you are located in a diverse country, such as the United States.

While no one can say explicit “rules” or guidelines in dating another person (regardless of a cultural similarity or difference), the blog Asia24/7 recently posted a chart that gives some insight – and phrases – to dating someone who is North or South Korean.

Like all such charts, the information can be used in a good way or can be seen as demeaning for people within that cultural group. However, I will admit that charts are often good ways for people to visualize. Besides, who wouldn’t want 100 roses on their 100th day of dating?
