Only been in a few relationships, one a really long term one.  How's this dating thing work?   :laugh: :-[

Nothing wrong with being single for a time, I suppose.  Certainly simplifies things.

I hear that. Got friendzoned after an eighth date. I gave her a piece of my mind. I don't play that shit.

I don't get the anti dokdo agenda from the people on here.

What's the problem? Why does it upset you so much? What harm is it causing you?

Why don't you just let them be?


I don't get the anti people taking the piss out of Dokdo agenda on here.

Classic.

I see all these dokdo haters floating around yet when that free trip to the hallowed dokdo rock comes along they can't get their bags packed fast enough.  :undecided:
Yeah, no. I can't speak for others, but I was offered that free trip, and was like...a trip to a rock? No, thanks. And that was before I was having shoved down my throat every other day in some form or other.

Geezus.  Forget that!  I've been kinda seeing a fellow but no official "date" per say as of yet.  Or maybe I wouldn't recognize a date unless it slapped me in the face.  :laugh:

I see your point but does it really take 8 dates to figure out whether you're interested romantically in someone??  Or does she just enjoy free food/entertainment, if we are to assume the male is paying?  But what do I know.

Ding ding ding, Yirj17

We made out a bunch of times. Things were going well, I thought. If you don't like me, then pay for your own damn drinks. I don't buy my friends dinner. Do I expect sex? No, I want it though. I really f'in like this woman, btw. This isn't a hobby. Fuckin love life is in the dumps. Tonight I'm going to go home and do some serious thinking about what I want, and what I'm doing with my life. This isn't just women related, there's a whole of things and I feel like there's a disaster around the corner I'm trying to ward off.

I saw this last night


 and I thought, "I'm 32 but it still applies to me. I watch a lot of Peterson, but I find myself admiring his wisdom, but never following through with it. What the hell is wrong with my motivation?"

It's time for a change. I've been the drunk funny guy for too long. A lot of people don't realise that funny and happy are not synonymous. 

Rant over. I'll see y'all tomorrow and I'll be a little better than I was before.

I remember in secondary school liking girls and then we'd have a kind of school disco where I'd say that I'd like them but nothing happened and I'd get upset.  That time could have been better spent messing around with my friends and having fun.  So at 13, I gave up bothering.  Instead, I had a great time with my friends as I really wasn't arsed about the opposite sex.  Bar a four-year relationship at college and uni, I really wasn't bothered.  Then as a chef in Sweden, I was just too busy to try.  All the while potential girlfriends popped up but I'd already kind of closed myself off.  I don't see that as a bad thing as I was enjoying time by myself and with my family and friends.  Maybe being a believer in destiny, I thought something may pop up, but I wasn't going to look for it.  I made my destiny in loads of other ways, but a relationship wasn't one of them.  When I came to Korea first the teachers I taught with seemed to like the fact that I'd immerse myself in my work and students and they'd call me '초식남', which is kind of the guy who puts his work first. 

CO2 maybe if you'd finished that hot chilli cutlet, the girls would be all over you!!  :-* :laugh:

I'm gonna go back and try again. Love to have ya! haha

I think I'm gonna cool it on the dating for a while. I'm just not interested in all the people I'm paying for dinner for. Sure I get drinks paid for at 2차, (that's how I roll) but it's still a drain and I'm just not interested.

I'll figure myself out before I jump into anything. I used to travel a lot to different places on the weekends, but now I find I go to the same bars and drink the same shit. I love my friends, and I love going out for beers, but I need to balance that with the explorer in me who just can't activate if I'm hungover all the time.

Come with me next time. We'll duke it out! It's not poison, it actually cleans out your colon pretty well. Consider it an organic colon flush, hahahaha.

I'm pretty sure I could eat it, but I'm sure my stomach would regret it after.

Sooooooo NOT #based behaviour.

I've actually been so busy the last few weeks I haven't had any time to work on planning my vacation. I'm not complaining about the work exactly, it's nice to actually have things to do, but I'm so used to using my down time to plan trips, it feels weird to not have anything done yet, except know the location.

Textbook: "Do you know about (Korean Thing)" "It's a traditional Korean (explanation in English)."

Student 1: "Do you know about Pororo? It's a traditional Korean Penguin."

Student 2: Character!! 바보~~~~~~

My activity group yesterday had a trip to Paju, leaving very early in the morning.  Usually, when I come to school and the students have a trip there are always police at the school, and wondered why.  Yesterday, I saw that they are there to breathlise the drivers to see if they still have high levels of alcohol in their blood.   :huh:

Huh, I went to Paju, too, on a teacher's trip to the Art Village across the way from the Eng village.

 :-* (but the nice one) "Kevin, you can pick any art museum  you want! Look, they even have an erotic art one!"

 :police: Haha, that sounds interesting, I'll do that.

VP: Who's going to the porcelain museum?

*Everyone but me*

VP: Kevin, where are you going?

 :police:  :-[ The erotic art one?

VP: Oh, I see.  :huh: Enjoy.

Also, the campus for Paju Eng Vill is ridiculous.

Does the Paju English Village still have a pub?  I thought someone had said it closed down.  On my one school trip there they just let me go wander.  I wouldn't want to have worked/lived there but they put a lot of bucks into that place.

I saw they had a British Pub Museum. But everything was closed so no idea what that actually means. haha

Also, the campus is the definition of garish. I took so many pics. It's f'in amazing. They have a mock Stonehenge FFS
