Hmmm? Oh you can get a Korean girlfriend all right, you don't even need to be fluent in the language, but will just 'any' Korean girl do?
I've heard of various dating sites but I've never really joined one because I'm not that desperate to get a girlfriend, at least not at this stage.
They are not all dreamy-eyed souls looking for a lifetime of true love and devotion, willing to see beyond circumstance and appreciate you for your wonderful joyful personality.
I'm sure there's a soul mate out for me somewhere in this world waiting for me to find her, just like treasure hunting without hints.
By the way, isn't there a Korean wisdom that goes like this..."짚신도 짝이 있다" (there's someone out there for everyone)...got it from an app called Korean Wisdom for my iPod Touch.
1. A college diploma -- a doctorate is preferred but a masters will do, at very least a bachelor's -- in Korea a bachelor's is as common as a high school diploma is in many other countries.
2. Lot's of money, being successful in business or career -- many Korean parents still vehemently oppose dating/marriage with non-Koreans, however, money seems to make you look more Korean in their eyes.
These two facts may offend some people -- but sometimes the truth hurts.
For the first one, I'm still a freshman studying for a 4 year degree program called American Degree Transfer Program (ADP).
For the second one, I can't guarantee anything bout it since I'm still studying.
At least now I know the truth.
In America a shiny new Harley Davidson also works well to attract girls, it's like using a flashy lure while fishing.
Isn't that common in anywhere around the world?
솔직히 말해서 이 세상에서는 '춘향전' 같은 여성들이 별로 없어요.
Can you please put it in English because this is what I get from Babelfish. "Frankly says, from this world ' Chun Hyang Jeon ' Especially there are not same women." And I don't really understand that.
What's your motivation for learning Korean?
And your answer is to get a Korean girlfriend!
Isn't that like the best motivator?
When I learned English, I had a hu~~~~g desire for getting Canadian girlfriend.
Alex, you just reminded of my sin. haha~~!!
Anyway.. I didn't (to be honest "couldn't") get a Canadian girlfriend (shame on me) and ALEX! You have the greatest motivation ever! You can do it!
It's not a sin, it's a great reason to push you to learn something.
감사합니다! Your words motivates me even more.
The bottom line is!
We are here to learn Korean!
So, cheers, George and Alex! and me!
Have fun learning Korean! Cool
Yes, but we're here to make friends and have fun too.
