When going on a first date, and even subsequent ones, the man is expected to plan and pay for the entire affair.
The man should also give the woman gifts and flowers at the beginning of each date as symbols of the woman accepting both the man and his feelings for her.
Online safety rules are the same as real world safety rules.
You may have heard a lot about Vietnamese women tending to marry rich men for the strong economic support after marriage.
Initially, it is recommended that the man takes the woman to a public place with a group of friends before later taking her on private dates.
During the group dates, the man and the woman are expected to refrain from showing each other physical affection, as it is looked down on in the Vietnamese culture.
So online dating really works and helps make a happy family.
