Korean lifestyle vlogger Rachel Kim shares all the best information about Korea and Koreans. Well, she’s back once again with more things you need to hear—and this time, she’s telling you why exactly you shouldn’t date Korean men from Tinder and other dating apps.
… On dating apps, anyone can pretend to be whoever they want to be because no one knows they are lying.
1. Their profile is a lie
The problem is, his dating profile is the only information you get.
Rachel explains that because beauty is so important in Korea, men will often round up their height or edit their pictures to give themselves sharper chins (among other things).
2. He’ll hide the weird stuff about himself
Dating app is like the perfect place you can lie about yourself.
As with other forms of social media, most people curate content representing only the best parts of their lives, leading others to believe the grass really is greener!
3. He came out from nowhere
There’s no mutual acquaintance. He’s not from your school, he’s not from your work. He’s not even a friend of your friend. You two are from whole different worlds.
Because you don’t share any connections, it’s easy to sever the relationship at any time since there are few repercussions to ending it.
Whew, Rachel gave us a lot of things to think about, and we hope she gave you a fresh perspective on online dating as well! Rachel discusses more reasons, as well as shares her thoughts in the video below:
