Friends hold hands, men with arms around shoulders. In America men are white around the eyes with fear at anything appearing remotely gay or effeminate, even unto avoiding being seen drinking tea. My partner and I sometimes hold hands in public. Vietnamese take no notice. Then some American "values voters" come into view and they're just shocked and offended. I wouldn't date Vietnamese women were I not already partnered, I'd rather be single than deal with the family stuff.

I have two friends here in LTRs with Vietnamese women, both have relationships with the GFs' families that I'd comfortably summarize as raw extortion, with monthly payouts that'd be high in the west. I won't TMI you with dating Vietnamese men. Nice to look at, but that's it.

Your vietnamese is very good, i think. This topic is so interesting. Dang, I should get married soon! BTW might also be because imo Im not attracted to locals here. Im quite a tall Asian 1,68cm and all the VN I met here are tiny. Im only attracted to guys who are at least 1,78 cm But the girls here are really pretty. So tall and thin. Just dont like the Hype of Being white! This is crazy since in the western world tanned is a sign of beauty! I feel obligated to post since apparently I'm one of the few female expats who has dated Vietnamese guys.

I dated two guys mid twenties over the span of a year so that's not a large sample size, but I'll share what I've gathered thus far. I guess foreign girls dating Vietnamese guys is a concept that is new to just about everyone including the poor guys If anything, the rule of 'guy pays for everything' still applies or they think it does. So 16 was warped and twisted and turned on its head. I was dating an orthopedic surgeon at one point but I made more than 3 times the amount he did.

Of course because he's a guy, he felt obligated to pay and he put up a pretty good fight for the first few weeks, but it eventually got to the point where I would pay for the dinner, movie, dessert, everything- which was more than OK with me but I felt like it bothered him even though he didn't say anything. The guy who had been seeing me for 6 months refused to kiss me goodbye as I was boarding my plane back to the US 3 does not hold up for the guys. If someone else is coming along on an initial date, it's because they're a mutual friend and trying to hook you guys up.

Guys don't need a chaperon. After knowing a guy for a month, I spoke with him on the phone once and let him give me a ride and after that he was under the impression we were dating. Something that expat girls dating in Vietnam should be worried about that is largely a non-issue with expat males: Thanks KnTrinh for this great report!

So actually as an expat Im quite safe not to exploited. I usually go on dates with expats like Korean, Candians Would be an interesting topic. Of course there will be women who will take advantage of the supposedly rich foreigner but many woman just enjoy the difference physically and culturally. Some of the girls I've dated just like the novelty of my blue eyes and don't care I'm older and overweight.

I love Vietnamese women but it's difficult to meet them because they are afraid I don't speak a lot of Vietnamese. Oh well, I'll keep looking and improving my language skills. Hi all, Please note that the off topic posts have been removed from the thread. So I'm going to have the sane issues, I speak very basic vnese, so it will be hard to meet local ladies? Maybe I should reconsider retiring In Thailand It's best to meet ladies through acquaintences and sometimes you meet someone who can speak some English and it can be fun integrating your communication skills to have fun.

Chemistry is important and although I am in a bit of a draught without that special friend; I know that just around the corner is somebody who will think I'm interesting. I have been to dozens of countries and there isn't one that fascinates me as much as Vietnam. I love the people, the food and especially South Vietnam weather.

Like everybody suggested make friends with locals. Get someone u trust and he or she might "lam mai" for you: So many tips, and I must be very patient to read all with my dictionary.
