On the second date it’s fine to invite her for dinner or even a few drinks.
First, it’s important to understand that most young girls in Vietnam don’t earn a lot of money. So even a $2 to $5 taxi ride will be quite the expense for her.
So if the question comes up, just order her an Uber or Grab.
If you are indecisive or show weakness, she may lose respect for you, resulting in a disastrous relationship.
Listen to her needs, make your decisions and follow through!
If she insists on getting her own taxi and you pay her back later, politely say no.
Most Vietnamese girls speak limited English, and during the date there could be many language issues.Likely the handshake will be met with giggles by other family members.But it’s perfectly fine to shake hands with older male family members.This shows you are caring and the Vietnamese really appreciate this.Also, when you greet a senior family member, you should bow.Consequently I have decided to share my knowledge and experience about dating in Vietnam.
