But if you want to leave, let’s leave,’ his girlfriend said.
Often, she would say something she didn’t mean, and Andre took her literally. Some of the women who frequent them are looking specifically for western men and not all of them are looking for a long-term (or honest) relationship.
In Japan, people tend to rely on non-verbal cues more than the literal meaning of messages. There’s nothing wrong with short-term dating and hook-ups.
China is relatively new to the whole modern-stable-globalized-internet (still working on that last one, really) country thing, and when your culture is over 4,000 years in the making, old habits die hard.
They walked around the lake to enjoy the beautiful scenery. In the course of a conversation where she accused him of doing all the wrong things, she brought up the incident, saying that she had actually wanted to stay, and blamed him for not taking her hint. When he was dating her the second time, she was cheating on her husband. He was always looking for a serious relationship, but the girls from those bars didn’t want the same thing.
They wanted to explore the area more, but in order to do that they had to take the ropeway. They joined the queue, even though they were a bit put off by its length.

Just look at what Dan Bloom, Korea’s foremost expert on dating Korean women, has to say about them! The fierce competition for men in Korea means that Korean women really take care of themselves – it’s almost impossible to find an “American sized” Korean woman, if you know what I mean. Of course, as men, we’re in it for more than just physical look… Anybody who accuses Korean women of being “easy” should be lead off to the asylum.
Having just gotten back from Japan, I can definitely see where Redpole Q’s characterization of Japanese girls hits its mark dead-center but, as good as Japanese women are, Korean women have some distinct advantages. Korean women have a desire to please that just isn’t matched in the West.
For foreign women it’s a completely different story.
