Today I’m going to try something new on request from several readers. Instead of just giving advice or explaining situations, I’m telling an actual story of something that happened during my time dating around here in Korea. If I get favorable response from these, I’ll continue telling my other stories as well. Some will be of success, some will be of failure, and some will just be of the notably weird, but all will be true and show a part of the dating life as a foreigner in Korea.
Anyone who dates around a lot is bound to have some pretty weird first date stories, and I am no stranger to bad first dates. This particular girl however even surprised me with how incredibly weird and awkward she made our first date.
This story happened back in May, when I was not drinking for a month as an experiment to see if I could still get laid completely sober. I had hooked up with an airline stewardess who lived nearby on a Tuesday night and the next morning we took my dog, Simba, out for a walk and she was heading home. A few minutes after parting ways with the stewardess, I saw a cute girl also walking a dog.
Simba, being much like me, ran up to the other one and started trying to hump it immediately. The girl and I both laughed and started talking. After about a 15 minute chat, she asked for my number (a huge signal of interest) and we parted ways, agreeing to meet up on Friday for a date.
She immediately began messaging me regularly with great enthusiasm, always a good sign. We banter back and forth for a couple of days and she seems genuinely excited about the date.
Now before I get to the date, let me tell you a little about the girl. She’s 22, very cute but not sexy, exactly the style I normally go for. Probably a 6-8 on most guys’ scales, depending on how much you like the cute factor. She speaks minimal to no English, so we’re communicating entirely in Korean. Because of these factors, I can immediately rule her out as being a Foreigner Lover. She tells me that she doesn’t drink at all, so she’s not a Party Animal or an Alcoholic, and she just recently broke up with her first and only boyfriend so she’s likely not a Slut. I narrow down that she’s probably a mix between a Prude and a Friend. Continue reading
