Hi, welcome back, nomadicmadda. Did you end up going to Sogang to study Korean? How was/is it ?

***Public service announcement*** We are approaching page 300 on this thread, which is, I believe close to the upper limit allotted for thread lengths. Screen cap everything if you want to preserve other people's misery for posterity, 'cause it may all vanish soon just like its previous iterations!

Just as the prophecies hath foretold. The skies will go dark. The earth will quake. The powers will be shaken. The ministry of the antichrist. And now...

Wow, nearly 300 pages deep and on the third rant thread  :laugh: Nice to see you all still keepin' it goin' strong!

...the second coming!

So glad my ass is righteous. Sorry for the resta ya'll.

Dating here can be so exhausting. Some guys are so. damn. needy. I guess some Korean girls like to be treated as if they have lost all control of their mental and physical faculties, but it sure gets old.

"What are you doing?"

"Making dinner."

"Ohhh wow! I bet it is delicious. Send me a pic^^~*~*~"

"It's just mac n cheese, nothing special."

"But I wanna see ㅠㅠ"

*sends pic of half eaten mac n cheese*

"oooWOW! Look so good! You took that picture well!"


andddd suddenly I'm dry.

It sounds harmless, but convos like this every. single. day. start to really get annoying. The problem is guys start off normal, but once you get more serious the strange obsessive babying behavior starts and I stop being attracted to them.

Barf. This is one of the many kinds of annoying the 변태 was before I finally wised up. Somewhat relevant, I hate that females are generally conditioned/taught to be polite to the point that sometimes we put the possibility of offending someone above our own comfort. Like of course it's typically good to be pleasant and nice but such behavior also just welcomes creeps, unfortunately.

Also, not sure we should be proud of reaching near 300 pages on the 3rd ranting thread  :laugh: Should we be worried it will disappear and take preemptive measures by starting a 4th ranting thread? Haha

Hearing these stories makes me appreciate my significant other so much more. Even when we started dating, we would usually just send like a text to say good morning, and then a few texts at night, and like maybe a phone call a couple times a week.

There's nothing like bitching and moaning in the morning to give your life purpose. Hate and anger are powerful motivators for getting through the day.

A mosquito made its way under my desk and managed to bite my legs 5 times before I started feeling the itch.  :cry:

That sounds nice. It's good to have healthy boundaries. All guys are not the same, but I have so many weird stories from dating here. A couple of bfs have even shown up to my house unannounced, just telling me they are on their way and after I told them it wasn't a good time, they ignored me and insisted on coming anyway! I have to get pissed at them before they realize what boundaries are. Their intentions are to be "romantic" or at least kdrama's version of romantic, but they never think it through. I once told a guy that I loved iced lattes so every single time we met he would bring me an iced latte... EVEN if we were on our way to a cafe! Kind gestures are nice.. but just use common sense.

To be honest, once they realized they didn't have to do all that stuff, they were kind of happy. They said it felt as if we were in a relationship just because we liked each other and spending time together and they didn't have to worry about putting on a show. Go figure! Not everything in life has to be a burden.

Honestly, I think a lot of the goofy stuff common in relationships here can be explained partially by lack of experience. When I first started dating, I was clingy and insecure and did stuff like that latte thing all the time. But by the time I was in my mid-20s, I'd thankfully grown out of that. But it came with experience.

Some (a lot of) people here don't start dating in earnest until their mid 20s, so they have limited experience, and are just basing it off of what they've seen on TV, or heard from their friends, or whatever.

Still annoying, though.
