Vietnam customs courting dating
Also keep in mind that Vietnam is a patriarchal society.Your Vietnamese girlfriend will expect you to to take a leadership role and make most of the final decisions.If she really likes you, she should be interested in you, and not the type of venue you take her to.If she asks to be taken to expensive restaurants or bars, politely say no and suggest something else instead.This shows you are caring and the Vietnamese really appreciate this.
