Whether you’re just re-entering the dating game or you’ve been dating around for quite some time, it’s important to understand how from different cultures approach dating. You can’t approach dating a Western woman the same way you’d approach dating an Asian woman, but it’s something we see too often. Cultural differences are extremely important when it comes to dating, and we’re here to help you navigate those differences.
If you’ve struck out trying to date an Asian woman, here are four great ways to win her heart. Practising patience, understanding, and kindness are the foundations of any successful relationship, and when you use these four tips, we know your next relationship will be a success.
1. Active Listening and Attentiveness
Asian women really value active listening and attentiveness to the relationship. If you’re not engaged in the conversation and show her that you’re interested in what she has to say, your relationship isn’t going to last long. Active listening is much more than nodding your head and making eye contact. It’s responding, asking questions, and taking the conversation further.
Being attentive needs to continue as the relationship develops as well. You may have gotten away with a lack of attentiveness in previous relationships, but that’s not going to work when dating an Asian woman. More important than confidence, money, and style are active listening and attentiveness, so this tip should be at the top of your list.
2. Don’t Be Pushy
It’s common in Western dating culture to be pushy and almost arrogant when meeting someone new. Wester dating culture often rewards those that are the loudest and the boldest. When dating an Asian woman, that’s far from true. Introducing yourself and starting a pleasant conversation will go much farther than doing something bold and wild.
Asian women are typically more reserved and quiet than women in other cultures, so it’s important to consider that when approaching someone new. If you start a conversation too aggressively or don’t understand how your actions are perceived by other cultures, you’re not going to have much luck.
3. Understand Cultural Differences
Understanding cultural differences is the key to navigating modern dating. In addition to understanding those differences, it’s vital that you respect those differences as well. Knowing those differences is one thing, but respecting and adapting to those differences often means the difference between a new significant other and going out alone yet again.
4. Honesty is the Best Policy
Honesty is always the best policy when dating an Asian woman, and is always the best policy in any relationship, regardless of the culture. However, Asian dating culture is founded upon respect and honesty, and if you’re dishonest with your partner, it’s often very difficult for the relationship to recover.
Rather than being dishonest about something, have an open, upfront conversation with your partner. Having that conversation may actually bring you close together rather than driving you apart. No matter what the issue is, and no matter how small or large, keep the lines of communication open.
