Most Korean women will finish their degrees and move on to the career field or onto higher education far earlier than Korean men; let's be clear here though: Korean men do not resent this responsibility as much as you might think.
Consequently, both women and men are already jaded by the time they are in their twenties, but especially women.On average, Koreans get married three years later than Americans. Simply, most Koreans focus on education before marriage, and a large percentage of the population in South Korea will be college-educated. When I ask my Korean friends this, they look at me like I must be clueless....."why not?The average age for marriage in the United States is 28 for men, 26 for women. " I was brought up old-school, dating is preparation for marriage, therefore you should never consider dating someone you wouldn't consider marrying.You don’t want to be one of these guys who mess up every first date because they violate every unspoken rule of the Korean dating culture.You want to be the kind of guy who knows what it takes to find the perfect job and the perfect woman in this country. ” there’s a high chance that they answer “we got introduced by friends.” There are even events where groups of guys get introduced to groups of girls.They have been hurt so much at a young age that they come to believe that all men must be assholes, so why even bother?Korean college-age girls however, talking to them, you'd think they were 16-year olds.You might be able to point out that Korean culture is firmly founded on traditional values, and therefore the girls truly may be as coy as they seem…but I’m here to tell you, they’re not.Korean girls do just about everything else American girls do, the only differences is they keep it behind closed doors, and they don’t talk about it openly. Sexual advertising is everywhere, it’s impossibly to avoid, so maybe the Koreans are on to something here...is more.Their image of the perfect man is something between a knight in shining armor and a K-pop star. Every male in South Korea is required to serve at least three years in the military, usually after their first year of college.This poses an interesting dilemma for college-age Korean girls.
