A friend of mine, a fellow European, summarized how relationships on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean work in a comical, but also pretty accurate way: “In America, the girl is Barbie and the guy is Ken.
In Europe both are both.” So how does this actually apply to the way relationships differ from each other in two continents whose inhabitants once belonged to the same culture?
Having a relationship with someone is important in all cultures, however the process of dating is different according to countries.
Thus, culture affects the way people date, suggesting various kinds of dates from heavily supervised meetings to evenings spent at the movies.
I've lived in Asia for more than seven years and coached guys for five.
This is my take - Get ready to find out what makes dating in Asia different.
Here, it is not the boys who often make the first step of asking girls to go on a date with them, rather the girls take this part and they also take the responsibility of paying for the date.
In my experience the most shocking things you'll discover about most of your Asian dates are: Their friends and family influence who she dates.It is still a male dominated society and women are not treated with the same dignity that they are in the western world.A woman in India still has no choice as to whom she will date or to whom she will be married and will never make decisions of any kind without the prior approval of the man of the family.Have a date coming soon and wonder if Asia dating culture matters?You've heard that when you date a woman in Asia it's different - but should you care? After all: a person is a person and your relationship should be based on your feelings for one another…right? Sure people are people but the contexts almost contradict each other.
