Some extremely self-aware guys would put on bb-cream, color contact lens (this one is more rare), and fake heels inside the shoes.

But don’t be too impressed because it’s probably 50% for other people to see, 30% for themselves, and 20% for you.

I once forgot one of these many celebrations previously-unknown-to-me, and all I can say is that that day didn’t end well.

As much as guys go crazy with these celebrations, girls also put equal effort in preparing – often some hand-made stuff for their special other.

– If you call them for help in the middle of the night (even at 2,3 in the morning), most of them will help you – On these occasions, I’ve learned that girls should expect the guy to prepare some sort of “surprise” – it’s not very surprising once you realize that it’s always going to be a bouquet of roses, a teddy bear, cake, and candles.

But still, it’s very sweet that guys will go such lengths to do things for the girls they like. But sometimes it’s the guys that are more into stuff like this.

But I must say that there is some merit to Korean boys’ courting style that is hard to match.

So here, I list out some of the common occurrences of dating a Korean guy based on my personal experience and of the experiences of my lovely Korean girlfriends.

truth lies and online dating

Some are really extreme: for instance, once four of my girl friends were out, and my girlfriend’s bf asked her to take a photo of her outfit to make sure it’s not too scandalous. I see tons of Canadian friends being friends with their ex but I rarely see Korean couples continuing to be friends after a break-up.Regardless, it’s good to see guys putting as much effort into looking nice and “dolling” up, but they would expect you to do the same. For instance, while it’s extremely subtle, they may exert more authority or expect you to show more “child-like” behaviors. In Korea, age determines how you refer to one another (unlike in Canada where everyone calls each other names).
