Most College Girls Ditch First Boyfriend Within Two Years

It is notoriously difficult to find a man these days. Most women look for something stable, but once they have one, a surprising number want to change them.

Many women soon feel exhausted and end up asking whether the man is really right for them. Tired from being overworked, an inability to handle sour relationships with the man's parents and family, and dissatisfaction with the level of pay are the three main reasons Korean women give for changing men.

According to a 2010 survey of 18,000 female college graduates by the Korea Employment Information Service, about half of them had changed their men during the first four years after graduation. Of these, some 75.4 percent said they left their post within two years.

Most women said that they quit their man on impulse and found a new one, rather than it being part of a well-calculated plan.

Experts say that young women should make sure they enter the market with the right priorities, and look for a man that can provide satisfaction and other rewards, rather than employment that just offers stability and a monthly paycheck.

However, given the state of the economy and the market for Korean males, finding the perfect man is as hard as finding the perfect job in life. Changing men becomes harder later in life because of the element of risk involved in adjusting to a new environment and the new skill-set demanded.

Men also tend to prefer women who have amassed experience with one man over a long period of time, rather than those who chop and change their men easily.
