Vietnamese dating rituals
2) If you don’t know Vietnamese, and you don't want to bother learning it, go at least for the university graduates, teachers and the ones who have studied overseas.For myself, I only consider dating girls who have at least graduated college.North-Central Vietnam is one of the poorest areas of Vietnam, but here you are most likely to find the most traditional and “good” girls.Vietnamese people don't look down upon them as people in Thailand might look down upon people from “Isaan”.I am not interested in college-drop outs, does not matter which country they are from.We can already not overcome the economic inequality, but at least you can find a girlfriend in the same social class as you.
Vietnamese people generally care more about traditions and family values than capital accumulation and materialism.
Finding a good woman in Vietnam should be like finding a good woman anywhere else in the world.
The only impediment however, and that is what Johnson has observed rightly, is the power-aspect.
The same counts for the people I know who are dating Vietnamese women.
I have yet to hear a story about a Vietnamese girl with several western sponsors, being a drug and gambling addict, having a local boyfriend preying on her money she receives from the foreigners and having a family extorting her and pushing her into prostitution.
