So yeah.. I'm pretty much crushing on this Korean guy that is an exchange student at my university. We do have quite a language barrier but in a way I find it cute. We met for the first time at a hang out spot at our uni and I had a bit too much to drink so I asked him for his number ^_^ And he gave it to me. I didn't expect him to reply but then the next day he messaged me :))))
He told me that I'm a very kind person and has asked me out to dinner. I can't believe it.. I'm over the moon but I'm not sure what to expect. The culture differences is something I'm kinda worried about but I'm not going to jump to conclusions.
Basically I just want to know from someone who has experience with dating an Asian guy or is an Asian himself on what to expect. Are they that much different? Will he like me despite my European heritage? Is there hope?

I am an Asian myself who grew up in Europe , and part of my family is of English heritage (uncle married a British girl). My British aunt chose my Chinese uncle because of his Confucian values (we are faithful to our spouses as partners for life) and we respect each others families for who we are. I am happy to say we don't smoke or gamble in my family! And there has between us all, never been a single divorce between us (which is a rarity these days).
I think guys like us do have a soft spot also for European women - if we ever manage to get on that is. I mean in Asia, there are plenty of Asian girls going out with European/American men, some of whom are married (like some friends I know). There are some I have seen who are Asian guys with European girls, but they are few and far between. Maybe because of the stereotypical perception that us Asian men are somehow 'weak-looking' or 'weak-willed' thus is not attractive like the typical American or European guy? That's the common misperception. We are more brains (and heart) than brawn. Luckily I've had my share of European women trying to get on with me. How does a full-bodied, beautiful and young Russian brunette sound to you? Amazingly I got hit by one exactly like her not long ago…so there's hope for us all! ;D
I would say if your Korean friend called you up, there's a good chance that he may like you (and want to go out with you). In that case just talk to him and see how it goes. He might be a little shy at first (if he is not the talkative type), but if you find he starts to smile at you a lot as he talks; talks a lot; maybe gets a little animated; embarrassed or you both seem to hit things 'right off the bat' you'll know he is into you…
Hope that helps!1
