Online Dating Horror Stories (and What You Should Learn from Them)

One of the beauties of online dating is that it brings together unlikely couples, people that wouldn’t normally cross paths. This can also be a downside when it so happens that one of these two people is a complete weirdo. While we know you never would pull any of these antics, we still think there are lessons to be learned from these online dating horror stories from around the web.

Online Dating Horror Stories That Should Be A Lesson To You

1. “Dude talked for several hours nonstop about his multi-discipline art project, which was based solely on an experience his father had 40 years ago. It was the only thing he talked about, no exaggeration, for 70% of the date.”

It’s awesome if you’re working on a cool project, and it’s more than cool to talk about it. But if it’s super nich-ey or specific, consider discussing something a little more accessible. Not to mention you shouldn’t be talking for 70% of the date, let alone about one thing. It’s polite to let your date talk – she’ll appreciate the chance to express herself, and you’ll learn more about her.

2. “Set a first date for a big Halloween bar hop. I went as hipster Hitler. Never do the first date as Hitler. To be fair, you can’t read snark on a text. Turns out she was very Jewish. Life lesson learned.”

Life lesson learned, indeed. There’s a time and place for your edgy humor, but a first date is not it. If you’re the type of person who likes to throw political correctness out the window, there are definitely women out there who appreciate that. But if you’re going on a first date, give yourself a chance to feel her out.

3. “I took her to a nice romantic movie, ‘The Road.’ My friends still make fun of me for that.”

Here’s the thing about dates at the movie theater: There’s a pretty good chance you’re gonna pick the wrong movie. Obviously, a dystopian, post-apocalyptic tragedy is not the move. But an overly romantic film can make things awkward and might not be that much better. Settle for a romantic comedy or a light-hearted action flick and call it a day.

4. “After what I thought was a fun date with a new guy, I turned to internet and found his Twitter feed. His last Tweet was right after our date: Why is it that girls who look slutty never go home with me?”

First of all, you should know by now how the internet works. This guy was an absolute idiot to post this on his public Twitter profile. People Google their dates all the time, so go in to your date with the expectation that your date has done a quick search on you. Second, and more importantly, have some respect! It’s no wonder that no one wanted to go home with this guy.

What You Need To Know About South Asian Culture

For the Western traveler, South Asian culture can feel overwhelming at first, but with a little bit of preparation, you can be ready to face the social and cultural differences with a healthy sense of expectation. Below you will find the top three fast facts that will be the most beneficial to know before planning a trip to South Asia.

Before You Travel, Learn About South Asian Culture

Population density is off the charts.

Perhaps the most instantly noticeable change you’ll notice when you step off the airplane is how crowded everything seems. That’s because roughly one fifth of the entire earth’s population lives in South Asia.

That’s right – roughly 1.3 billion people make their home in the region of the Indian subcontinent, and the impact of this population density on the culture cannot be overlooked.

Every train car will be full to overflowing, every line will be long, and nobody will apologize for bumping into you on the street, because doing so would become a never-ending chore.

Rather than bristle over being jostled, pushed, or stuffed into public transportation like a sardine, the best thing to do go with the flow and enjoy the ride.

Religion strongly influences culture.

As with almost every other area of the world, dominant local religions strongly influence the culture. South Asian religious culture cannot be easily categorized, however, since the region is the home to a rich variety: Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, Islam, Confucianism and Christianity.

Because differences in these religions mean differences in local culture, it’s in your best interest to familiarize yourself with the religious influences of the specific region you plan to visit so that you can best appreciate the art, music, social traditions, and moral expectations of your hosts.

History’s richness is on display.

This region of the world has seen continuous population for quite some time, and many ancient civilizations saw their birth here. Learning even a little bit of history before your trip will reward you tenfold as you see the sights.

Whether you plan to visit Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, or Sri Lanka, these fast facts will hold you in good stead.

Ready For A New Beginning? Try This Vietnamese Tradition

Everyone turns a year older on the day they were born, but the Vietnamese calculate ages and birthdays in a different way. Did you know that there’s one particular day when every Vietnamese turns a year older? It’s a Vietnamese tradition called the Tet Nguyen Dan or just Tet Celebration for short. On this special day, everyone adds a year to their age because it is the universal birthday that all of Vietnam celebrates.

All About The Tet Celebration

Tet Nguyen Dan translates to “the first morning of the first day”. It is equivalent to celebrating the Lunar New Year, Thanksgiving, New Year’s, and birthday celebrations all wrapped into one. As said, everyone in Vietnam turns a year older during Tet, but the festivities are not dedicated to everyone turning a year older.

Why Is Tet Celebrated?

Tet is celebrated because it marks the arrival of spring on the Vietnamese calendar. It symbolizes new beginnings. All Vietnamese believe that whatever you do during Tet celebration will be carried throughout the entire year. For example, if you are positive and happy during Tet, the rest of your year will also be positive and happy. This is why every Vietnamese is in a good mood on the day of Tet. Negative actions and moods are avoided as the day is greeted with feasts and different sorts of feel-good actions.

How Is Tet Celebrated?

As mentioned, families prepare feasts during Tet. They wear native attires that are brand new. The streets are lined with vendors selling fruits and flowers in preparation for the eve of Tet. On the eve itself, bells ring at the temples and prayers are chanted. Families congratulate each other for turning a year older, and the streets are bustling with firecrackers and people celebrating the entrance of the new year.

It wouldn’t be a birthday without gifts, right? Children receive Mung Tuoi which is a gift giving ritual elders practice. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles give children “lucky” money inside a red envelope and then offer them well-wishes and wisdom for the coming year.

So, How About Regular Birthdays?

Surprisingly, the day when a Vietnamese is born is just another regular day. However, more and more families are celebrating birthdays like in the West. It’s not a big deal as Tet, though. This is why everyone’s Vietnamese age has one or two additional years depending on the date. For example, let’s say you’re 24 years old. If Tet celebration is going to happen tomorrow, you’d be 25. If your birthday happens two weeks after Tet, then you can add another year to your Vietnamese age.

Asian Date | Thai Dating Tips: Strange Thai Habits You Need To Get Used To

Thai Dating Tips: Strange Thai Habits You Need To Know

One of the many Thai dating tips you’ll come across often is this: if you want to date a Thai lady, you have to get used to the Thai culture. How different can it be from yours, though? Adjusting yourself to a particular culture may sound easy, but it’s possible for you to have a hard time with it especially when you find a certain tradition or practice on a bit stranger side.

Thai Dating Tips: What Weird Habits Do Thai People Do?

Let’s start with habits because if you’re planning to jump into the Thai dating scene, you’ll encounter many of the habits we will mention on this list.

1. Feet Washing

When you come home with a Thai lady, observe what she does as soon as she enters her house. She will actually wash her feet. When you ask why Thai people will tell you that it is for them to feel clean. The feet, to Thais, are the dirtiest part of their bodies so when going inside, they have to wash all the grime that the dirtiest part of their bodies accumulated.

2. Shorts Under A Dress

Here’s one of the many interesting Thai dating tips you’ll read on this list. Did you know that Thai women are fond of wearing shorts underneath their dresses? Any dress, whether it’s body-fit, long or short, the perfect “undergarment” that goes with it is a pair of shorts. Women feel that wearing shorts will help them feel more assured that their actual underwear won’t be accidentally seen when the wind blows or when they go up the stairs. It’s kind of similar with men because they don’t really see boxers as undergarments. They wear actual briefs underneath their boxers.

3. On Repeat

How many Thai women have you talked to? Have you ever noticed them repeating every word you say and smiling as they do so? It’s common for all Thai people. It’s not to make fun of you. Thai people who do not speak English fluently tend to do this, so they have more time to construct a reply in their heads.

4. Foreigners Have Different Treatment

It won’t matter if you’ve lived in Thailand for years and have adapted to the culture, the language, and the tradition perfectly; if a Thai person sees you, he or she will automatically think that you do not know how things are done in Thailand.

If you’re out with a group of Thai people you just met, don’t be surprised if they don’t interact with you that much. Because of the previously mentioned things, they might feel that it would be a challenge to communicate with you.

Do you think you can adjust to these behavioral differences? Well, you have to if you want to date Thai women. For more Thai dating tips or Asian dating tips, check out our other posts on our blog.
