There are many possibilities out there for Foreigners dating in Asia to find a good partner in the “Land of Morning Calm.” While Asia might be known as the “Land of Morning Calm,” it says nothing of the night time in cities like Seoul and Busan, which are anything but calm. Nightlife in Asia is all about going out, drinking and having a good time; and, it is the perfect way to meet a girl. Of course this helps the young nomads with their ability to hang out with girls!
When I first came to Seoul two years ago, I had a preconception that Asia would be very traditional and meeting Asian girls would be a bit of a problem. While sometimes that is the case, there are many more times the opportunity to find a date. Asian women are for the most part very open to meeting a western guy. They have been watching American TV their whole lives, and some have developed preference and curiosity for Western males. The best thing that you can do is get on a dating site. One of the biggest ones that is free is Date in Asia. There’s a kind of creepy review site that actually has good information. The site has a review for dating in Asia that’s super informative. Once again, the guy that runs the site seems to be creepy but should help you out.
The one obvious drawback is the language. Growing up, I’m guessing not many western guys from Canada and the US had the opportunity to learn Asian and will not know any upon arriving in the country. This will narrow the field slightly, but fear not, there is good news.
Asia is growing fast, and so are the numbers of English speakers. Asian girls start learning English in elementary school, and many of them have a firm grasp on the language by the time they are in their 20s. These women would love to get a chance to practice their English. Even if they are not interested in dating you, more times than not, a friend of theirs would like to.
Aside from the general women population having decent English skills, there are certain places in the city where English is very common and women going to these places are there because they like interacting with foreigners. It gets even better, women coming to these places typically speak fluently and they are very social and friendly to the foreigners.
A third option for Foreigners dating in Asia is a bit trickier, but will pay off loads, in the long run, is learning to speak Asian! This is a lock and will give Asian speaking foreigners instant access to the whole population. While it will take a few months to begin to get a handle on the language, it’s value cannot be overstated. Learning to speak the local language is very attractive to women!
