It is always important to truly get to know the person you are dating and one way we can get a good idea about another is by learning what their values are. Especially so if you are dating someone from a different culture. Culture and traditions have a great influence on our beliefs, even if we don’t realize it right away. Knowing what movies or music someone prefers or what their hobbies are is also important but pales in comparison of true values held in their heart.

In this article, we take a look at what are the most important values Asian women have and how they will impact what experience you have with dating them. Let’s take a look at what you need to know.

1. Family-Centeredness

Asian womenFamily always comes first for Asian people. They are, in fact, more family-centered than we are in the Western cultures. Approval from family is always needed and motivation often stems from bringing honor to the family. Protecting that honor is crucial – you will find that Asian women will not cross that line. Ever. That may pose a challenge in your international relationship.

2. Patience

A virtue you should possess because Asian women definitely do. You won’t be introduced to the family right away. Usually, when that happens, it means the family has reached the stage of an engagement. So, when the girl feels like it is time to introduce you, wedding bells are not that far away. Contemplate at this stage if you feel that strongly about the relationship.

3. The Big Interrogation

When you have been introduced to the family you need to sit down with them. It will feel much like an interrogation – you are asked a thousand questions to see if you are indeed fit to date the woman. If you are serious about dating her, then you should go through with it. Even though it may well feel like an invasion of privacy or even an attack. It is standard in the Asian dating culture and you should be prepared for it.
