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.

valentines in Korea AsianDate

You’re Lucky If You’re A Guy Spending Valentine’s In Korea

How do you spend Valentine’s Day in your country? It’s probably similar to how the Western culture celebrates Valentine’s – the man goes out to buy chocolates and flowers, and then gives it to his lady to show how deep or passionate his affection is. Korea is different, however – very different. Valentine’s in Korea is more of the man’s day than the woman’s.

Men Don’t Have To Do Anything During Valentine’s In Korea

You might be little confused with a comment that men do nothing. But it means just that. It may sound strange to you, but Valentine’s in Korea is not a day for the ladies, as we have already mentioned. It is a day that focuses on the men receiving gifts from ladies. Refreshing, isn’t it?

The Korean Love Days

In the Korean culture, Valentine’s is just one of twelve love days. There’s “Hug Day”, “Kiss Day” and “Rose Day” among others. We’ll talk about these love days soon also. But for now, you should know that aside from Valentine’s day, there are other love days that Koreans commonly celebrate: White Day and Black Day. Let’s break each day down:

Valentine’s Day (Feb 14)

This is the day when the men receive presents or chocolates from their wives, girlfriends or from the woman who likes them. When you receive something on Valentine’s, the one that gave the present to you wants to let you know that you are important in her life, either romantically or platonically.

White Day (March 14)

Of course, the ladies should not be left out. The ladies’ day comes a month after Valentine’s in Korea. On this day, it’s men’s turn to buy chocolates, flowers or small trinkets to give to women in their lives.

Black Day (April 14)

Korea probably has a day for everything because they even have a way of celebrating a day for singles. So if supposedly, during Valentine’s and White Day, singles did not receive anything, they “mourn” their singleness on Black Day by eating Jjajangmyeon (Black Noodles) with other single friends.

Wouldn’t you want to stay in Korea during February 14? We bet you would. We have more interesting posts for you to read on the blog. Don’t forget to visit AsianDate to meet lovely ladies from different Asian countries.

Strange Ways Asians Celebrate New Year

As you’re preparing dinner or getting ready to watch your local fireworks show, have you ever wondered how the rest of the world is celebrating New Year? If you’ve always wondered, this is the post for you because we’re going to take a look at how some Asians celebrate New Year or New Year’s Eve.

How Different Asian Countries Celebrate New Year

Each Asian country has its own unique way of celebrating New Year. It may seem strange to the rest of world, but it’s unique to the culture. You have to admit, it would be interesting to find out how some Asians celebrate New Year, right? We’ve compiled a short list of Asian countries that celebrate New Year in the strangest way.

Nepal

The Ancient city of Bhaktapur is located in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley. The New Year is marked with a parade of chariots, beautifully decorated with the statues of different gods and goddesses of their faith. There’s also a big tug of war competition between those who live on the East side of the city versus those who live in the West. Whoever wins will have a more prosperous year.

Myanmar

The Burmese celebrate New Year in different ways, but in Burma, they have a Water Festival. To the rest of the world, this celebration looks like one big water fight because people are freely splashing water on anyone they see. But, the practice does have a spiritual significance. It started with the ancient practice of pouring water from scented bowls to cleanse the soul and make it ready for a sinless start.

Laos

Now, we go to Laos where their New Year celebration is based on Buddhist traditions. What’s interesting is a Lao New Year begins on April 13 or 14. The celebration typically lasts for three days. In towns like Luang Prabang, it could last for a week. You can expect water fights, sand being brought to the temples, and flowers prepared for Buddha’s images.

Philippines

Typically, the Philippines celebrates New Year with a New Year dinner and fireworks. But, what’s strange is that the Filipinos buy firecrackers and fancy fireworks a few days before the New Year hits. Minutes before the clock strikes 12midnight, they light up the streets with the firecrackers and the entire neighborhoods fill up with smoke for an hour or two.

Next year plan to travel to Asia to experience how Asians celebrate New Year. Who knows, you might find an Asian woman you can fall for. Wouldn’t that be a great end to a year? For more interesting posts about the Asian culture, check out the rest of our posts on our blog.

The Insiders Teach You About Dating Asians

Have you ever heard of the term K-pop? K is simply short for Korean, while pop, in this expression, refers to the music genre. Basically, K-pop is the shortened version of Korean popular music. It’s so popular that you don’t have to explain what the expression means to an Asian because K-pop is a booming industry even outside of Korea. But, what does this have to do with dating Asians?

How Studying K-pop Stars Can Help With Dating Asians

We’ll get to that in a little bit. First, you’ve probably already figured out that K-pop stars are the boy bands and girl bands of the Asian world. They’re like the Backstreet Boys or One Direction, only “upgraded”. We use the term “upgraded” because groups who attempt to break into the industry have to undergo rigorous training for one whole year before they are debuted to the public.

Now, we can talk about how K-pop stars can help you with dating Asians. A closer look at why Asians go crazy over the dancing, singing, and acting idols can give you some tips on how you can attract Asian women. Read the following tips that we can all learn from observing K-pop stars:

1. K-pop stars take care of themselves.

Remember that one year of training that K-pop stars have to go through? Well, it involves dozens of dancing rehearsals. This serves as a K-pop star’s form of exercise. You should also have some exercise yourself. It doesn’t have to be dancing. It can be any exercise that fits your lifestyle. Asian women are attracted to men who have a fit physique, so you better start working out now.

2. K-pop stars pay attention to style.

Are we saying that you have to dress up like a K-pop star? Not at all, because sticking to your personal style – a style that you’re comfortable with – is the best way to go. Just make sure that, whatever personal style you have, you’re updated with the latest trends, and you know what looks good on your body. It could also be time for a makeover, don’t you think?

3. They’re confident performers.

OK, so you’re not going to perform in front of your Asian date. But, you can show your confidence in other ways. The way you act, the way you speak and, generally, how you conduct yourself during dates will help your Asian date see how confident you really are.

4. Humility

If you’re not into K-pop culture, you’ve probably haven’t seen how K-pop stars address their fans. They’re very humble in doing so. While your date may not be a crazy fan waiting for your signature, you have to remember to be humble when on dates. Be humble when you treat waiters or servers. Be humble when you talk about your achievements and so on.

Do all of four of these tips, and you’re basically similar to a K-pop idol. With enough practice, you’re going to have Asian girls lining up to meet and date you! Just don’t forget to show off your personal style which is very important in the K-pop industry. For more dating tips, check out the other posts on our blog.
