well, because its still the month of the hearts so I will share what I've read about dating in Korea. its because I can relate???? hehehe.
Dating in Korea and Cultures 101:
✅Expect to get introduced to people.
- Koreans don't always meet new people by themselves. They let others arrange meetings for them.
✅ Don't expect to spend a lot of time with your partner.
- Korean people are well known for having extremely tight schedules and working until they burn out.
✅ Avoid showing affection in public.
✅ Smiley's and messages are way to show affection.
- Koreans love their smart phones.
✅ There's nothing more important than family.
- its important to honor in laws and treat them with respect.
✅ Prepare yourself for a social media contest.
- Every meal has to be photographed and uploaded. You have to stop your communication every ten minutes because its time to take a selfie and it takes another two minutes to upload the selfie with the perfect hash tag.
✅ You have to celebrate a lot.
- There's the celebration on every 14th of each month.
✅ Walking around in couple shirts is not weird when everyone does it.
- In South Korea its complete normal to run around couple shirts.
✅ Get ready to be glued to your phone.
- Korean guys are big fans of constant communication via text message and instant message. Updating your significant other as often as possible. What you're eating, what you're thinking, what you're looking forward about your date tonight.
✅ Valentines Day has got nothing on Korea.
- Korea also has a ton of national love holidays that are fun to celebrate. These holidays always fall on the 14th and the nature of holiday can range from Valentines day. To kiss day (June 14th), to a day you're meant to give your partner chocolate (white day, March 14th) there truly is a love holiday for everybody no matter what your style is.
so I guess, now I know why it has to be February 13 because 14th is a love holiday, and those meals (fooods too) hahahaha.
Happy hearts day to us.
