No regrets

As some of you know, I was recently dating a guy from Korea. Unfortunately, he went back to Korea and he decided that a long distance relationship was not the way he wanted to go. Although I was upset, I am grateful for the time we spent together in London and while most people will regret everything in my situation, I don’t. I did doubt that a long distance relationship would work but I had the intentions of trying it but I suppose it really wasn’t meant to be.

Although we were aware that our time was going to be short when we started dating, I had a great time with him. I really enjoyed his company and I felt that we had a connection. I’m usually really awkward when there is silence, but I felt so comfortable with you.

I am far from the adventurous type but I was more open to trying things out of my norm with him. We went to Liverpool and Manchester on our last weekend together, you took me to my first football match, we went to my favourite museum, the theatre and would just hangout when we wanted to. You were really supportive when I found out about my mum and you asked about her progress almost everyday, as if you had known her. We had a lot in common that we didn’t realise. I loved the way you would ask me what I wanted to eat even though you knew I would always answer, ‘I don’t know, anything, I don’t mind!’.

And our last sunset together was beautiful.

Our time together was short, but our relationship meant more to me than any of my longer relationships. When I cried on the coach I must have really freaked you out! I’m sorry. =P I was emotional from lack of sleep and I kept thinking about the fact it was our last weekend together. I miss you but to have you as a friend is awesome and I hope we will meet again when I go back to Korea. I know time difference is a big problem and you are probably really busy but please stay in contact as often as you can.

The only thing I regret, is not telling you how thankful I am for everything you did for me and our time together.

Manchester vs Liverpool

I’m not much of a football fan but the guy I’m dating loves football. He goes back to Korea in two days so today, we are going to the match.
Manchester United vs Liverpool!

As a lead up to the match, yesterday we visited Liverpool & Then got the coach up to Manchester last night.

Stupidly, I left my camera at home after contimplating a thousand times! I didn’t think Liverpool & Manchester had much to take photos of. But boy I was wrong!

So when he sends the photos he took on his phone to me, I will do a blog post on which city I think is more beautiful. =]

Winning!

Tuesday night, I went to a Japanese meet up in London. It’s an event where people who are interested in Japanese culture & Japanese people in London meet up once a month.

So there was this Japanese guy, who has super attractive! I spotted him early in the night. Maybe an hour after getting there. However, at this meet up there are so many people it’s hard to stand still, let alone make conversation!

After attempting to make friends with other people, I saw two guys sitting at a table which can seat 8 people. I am exhasted because I’ve been awake since 5am! So I grab my friend and we sit. I turn to look at the people sitting on the table, it’s the cute guy!

So we start talking. I find out he studied some media communication course at uni, which is super similair to Journalism. Anyway, we are in a deep conversation, when we are suddenly interupted.

A girl comes up to him, only him, not his friend. ‘Hi, my friend wants to talk to you cause she thinks your cute! I’m Miss rude-ass & my friend is…’. So I am gob-smacked! How can you just come & interupt somebodies conversation?! Let alone a guy who is talking to a girl. I could have been his girlfriend for all she knew!

Anyway, he polietly but awkwardly introduced himself. But then, he turned his back on them!! =D I was so happy! Not only was I happy because he was more interested in me, but I was happy because he also thought that the way they approached him was rude!

If there is one thing I know about approaching guys, it is that you should look at the situation from a distance & wait for him to end his conversation if he is having one! Isn’t it common sense?!

Anyway, he wrote his number on a napkin for me! Which I think was cute because people don’t do that anymore! And the fact I didn’t ask for it makes it a win x2!

Wish me luck with this guy! I have super bad luck with guys I like so maybe this will work out!

Not True.

As I am in Korea, I have been reading blogs about Seoul.

I am fed up of seeing posts about Korean guys only liking Korean girls and light girls. Or Korean people looking at black people funny and ignoring foreigners when they ask for help. This is not true.

I don’t know if people who are writing these blogs have actually been to Seoul, or any part of Korea for that matter, but I really think they haven’t. I’ve been here for one month and I have not suffered any racism, and this is what you are accusing them of when you say they ignore you or look at you funny.

I’ve had more problems in London than I have had in Seoul.

Everyone here is kind! Yes they may stare a little bit, but they are just curious! You can not assume that they are thinking the worst. I have an example:

I am here to study, so when I have a break I go to the shop located inside the university. The women who works in the shop always stared at me funny. I noticed but it didn’t bother me. After 2 weeks, she told my Korean friend that I am very beautiful.

Now tell me, if I had been rude or thought the worse about this lady, she would probably still think I’m pretty but she would not tell me. She wasn’t thinking anything bad!

Every shop I’ve been into, every person I’ve met, has been nothing but nice to me! I get a few stares, yes, but who cares?!?! People stare no matter where you go! I find myself looking at people for longer than two seconds too!

Also, I have had several dates since I have been here. I’ve had guys come up to me and tell me I am pretty. I am considered very dark in comparison to a Korean person.

We should not generalise people. It is like saying all Black guys like girls with big butts, or that all white guys like blondes.

Koreans are the most friendliest race I have met.
