Do you think it’s easier for Vietnamese women to date in Vietnam than it is for foreign women? One of my students told me her dad used to say, “Girls should be thrown out with the dishwater.” Your daughters are to be married off.
It’s becoming more and more difficult for Vietnamese girls to meet someone to date. Many of the girls – they’re 28 to 35 years old – around me are still single. And I feel so sorry because, do you remember, I only care about the first group of girls, who are independent, confident. And so you really don’t want anything to do with the guys that are really kind of forward. So, if you can marry her off to some wealthy guy, that’s great. But if a Vietnamese guy brings me home, that’s a whole different story, because I’m coming into the family.

So do you think that most white guys think that Vietnamese women are the same? I think that from the first time they arrive in Asia, they don’t know who is who. But I actually did come here to escape men in a lot of ways. What’s your impression of the guys who come here and their dating life? I’m not really friends with that kind of guy here, so I don’t really talk about that stuff. Look, I get a certain level of respect for being a Western person. So at work, you can’t put a foot wrong here, because no one’s going to tell you to step off. So, if you get one girl today, you get another one tomorrow. Well, you’ve got to look: the men who rule the world are white men. So, if you’re on the bottom of the heap, you want to find someone who can bring you out of that. We go on about old men that go over the Philippines and Vietnam and get their little wives and how revolting they are… Like, many Vietnamese think that all the foreigners are rich, but it’s not true! Yes I am planning to work here for a while, and let’s see what happens next.
For example, one time I went out with my foreign friend, right? But they definitely come here, and they’re like a kid in a candy store. So, dating a white man gives you a higher social status in this country. Can you see yourself getting married to a Vietnamese girl? until I found out that it wouldn’t be as easy as I thought.
So, we decided to get four different opinions on dating in Vietnam to get a broader perspective. For you, has it been different dating a foreigner from a Vietnamese man? Girls are more suspicious of guys and not so easy to approach. Its different in Vietnam; I find it easier to approach someone just for a drink or a dinner. I came in Vietnam for the first time in 2015, for a week of holiday. I really loved [Vietnam], the people, so I decided to come back to here six months later for an internship in January 2016. First, I have to say that Vietnamese girls are very beautiful – they got something.
If you’ve never found a connection on Tinder, this new dating site might just solve that―but it’s only for Filipino-Chinese users.Because for me, if I was not happy I just broke up, or the other way around. But the most important thing that I remember is, she told me to quit my job, because you can’t make good money with your job. Why do you think some people become pretty but insecure, while others become independent and secure? The way they were educated in the past, when they were kids. In Vietnam, a man who has property and money, they will love to have a woman who they can control. And people like that, who treat each other fairly, they can have a really great relationship. But when I do something, I want to do it with my passion. Some families, they have a very modern, a very Western mindset.
