Vietnamese culture for dating
The Vietnamese value romantic love highly, but since most people are poor, economic factors are important in the choice of partners. However, they must adhere to certain cultural expectations, especially what is considered appropriate behavior for each gender.
Women are encouraged to date men who are wealthier than they are.
Whereas in some parts of the region you need to do some footwork to unearth the local lovelies, in Vietnam you don't.
You’ll find that Vietnamese girls tend to be a bit slimmer, fairer skinned, and slightly taller than other Southeast Asian girls.
I’m not suggesting that you turn up to your date with your bank statement in hand, these things need to be handled in a subtle manner, but it does need to be done.
Once it is done, leave the subject alone and don’t repeat it.
A regular Vietnamese girl will even be scared of calling you her boyfriend in public because, in the event of a breakup, everyone will assume that she has had sex with you.
Virginity is still highly prized in Vietnam and, whilst things are slowly changing, there are still lots of brides that are virgins up until their wedding night.You need to understand this; losing her virginity will seriously harm her desirability to Vietnamese men, and that can have very serious consequences that will last a lifetime if it were to cause her to miss out on another suitor just because of a previous relationship with a westerner.
