Thanks for the kind words, guys. Yeah, 아깝다 came up. And theman, I read that book. I used to be a real people pleaser but I'm more assertive now. I'm not a tank but I do realise that I am a pushover a lot and I've stood up or myself more, especially in my relationship.

GF told her parents to fukk off, and her brother, too. I think that this was the proverbial straw TBH, there's been some issues for a while.

Her mother will phone her, like, 4 times a day and video call once with the grandkid......EVERY DAY. Like, holy hell, They live 35 mins away, they're not starved for interaction with their daughter/grand daughter. My parents are in Canada and I phone them every couple of months. There's no rule for this, obviously and every relationship is different, but good lord, like............ go away.

I told GF about the premise for Everybody Loves Raymond and her eyes got big, haha

Dude I'm not even remotely surprised to read this. Some parents want their children to stay children forever. My mom's a bit like that, It's such a weird impulse. You could be Mark f***ing Zuckerbeg and they'd still tell her you're not good enough.

This happens a lot here.  Don't worry about it.  Do what you're doing.  They'll come around.  Don't listen to the faux-tough guy approach espoused here.  It's a different country with different rules.  Like I said, 아깝다 comes up a lot here if you keep your ears open.  It's nothing to worry about.  Just Koreans putting in their opinions, whether you like it or not.  This is Korea, pushing through some nonsense tough guy bollocks will get you nowhere.  You can't win them over because of the language barrier, that is why actions speak louder.  For those with more experience, what they said is not the end.  You just have to show that you're worth it.

Side note, but what is it with the whole Mark Zuckerberg thing? I remember that one girl mentioning him in her video on why people don't like foreigners or whatever (if they were successful like Zucc and Gates they wouldn't have to move here etc), is he like, the archetype of a successful American, because the dude is more like the archetype of somebody whose probably a lizard person

I would know as I am a lady.  You can't win them over because of the language barrier, that is why actions speak louder. I am a woman hear me roar. For those with more experience, what they said is not the end.

Yeah... When someone says you are not good enough for their daughter, the one thing you don't do is be a puss. Actions do indeed speak louder than words, Veronica is correct here. Although the action is not to weep and beg for forgiveness like 'she' is suggesting. For those with actual experience and not fairy tale experience, the moment you give an inch, you are signing yourself for a lifetime of being a cuck. If you then snap at a later date, the rents will think it is out of character. Set your line in the sand and carry on with your life. Regardless, a shitty thing to say to you and clad your lady had your back.

Plus I'm sure your Mrs would dig you standing up for yourself if you know what I mean.
Haven't you got some pictures of birds to be jacking off to, son?

This x1000000. Your girl is watching you carefully right now, I assure you. If you act like a doormat she'll treat you like one for the rest of your time together. But you also don't want to go full Rambo/warpath. Best thing is to shake it off like you don't GAF and proceed to turn down any and every opportunity to fraternize with those pompous schmucks until they go out of their way to make things right, at which point you'll be in the driver's seat where you belong. Worse come worst, your girlfriend can easily maintain separate relationships with you and her folks. Don't get duped into the typical Korean family dynamic.

basically don't worry about it CO2. they'll come around

Doubt they were brazen enough to openly disrespect you, though. Some people aren't capable of coming around.

My in-laws didn't really have an issue with their first daughter dating a British man. I guess I can count myself lucky in that regard. Although there have been other situations that have come up. (paying for meals, vacations, housing) and in each case I have used my voice of experience to outline how things are going to go down. I think they can respect that and see I am the perfect man to look after their daughter. From a voice of experience, never shoot yourself in the foot. You can respect Korea and Korean traditions without being a wet tissue. That's the fastest way for them to come around. Voice of experience here. :) OH and if you do plan of living a lie on the internet or pretending to be a woman, probs keep that under wraps. Gonna be the final nail. Not a voice of experience here though so you should talk to other posters about that topic!

The latter. I don't think he's ever posted anything that would've hinted in any way that he's a woman or was trying to make anyone think he was. He just clicked F instead of M when making the profile. He isn't even the only poster here to have done that.

Actually I've made multiple references to him being a girl in the past, and he never bothered to correct me. So there's definitely something colorful about him/her/zer
