Western men who seek to date Asian women but know little of Asian culture may be unintentionally making etiquette mistakes with their potential dates. In order to alleviate this problem, we’ve put together this little guide to offer some helpful tips to Western men on how to date Asian women. Here’s the dating Asian women beginners guide.
What You Need To Know Before You Start To Date Asian Women
Attempt to Understand Asian Home Life
Asian home life is much more focused on the family than the individual; therefore, the Western idea of private space, individual bedrooms, and drawers that are considered “off limits” can come across as secretive.
In Asian homes, almost all space is shared space. Also, if you’re going to date Asian women, remember that many of them were raised in “shoe-less” homes, meaning that outside shoes are always removed at the door, and house slippers are worn indoors.
Wearing your outside shoes indoors could leave a lasting negative impression, so be sure to slip them off at the door when entering or double check with your favorite lady before entering an Asian home.
Attempt to Understand Asian Food Culture
Asian food culture is quite different from its Western counterpart. Although sites such as Buzzfeed find humor in the differences, it’s important that you learn to be adventurous and open to trying new things! Who knows: you may find a new favorite food.
Attempt to Understand Asian Family Life
Asian family units are even more close-knit than that of their North American counterparts. Family relationships mean everything; therefore, Asian women put a high value on these relationships and take them very seriously.
This is important to know if you’re going to date an Asian woman. For example, asking her to go against the wishes of her family will produce a very strong reaction and should be avoided at all costs.
Attempt to Capitalize on the Fun of International Dating
While international dating does pose its own set of unique challenges, it also provides ample opportunity for fun and adventure. Asia is a huge, wild, and wonderful place full of exotic sites and interesting opportunities; and what better way to see the world than with someone special by your side?
