Let's try this again.
I think I should add he is not some guy who was sheltered in Korea the whole time. He has been back and forth to the states and has studied in other countries. He has seen interracial couples and thinks its normal. So he doesn't understand the problem. If you are attracted to someone you are attracted to them, race is nothing.+
If you read my blog, you know who PCRG is.
This is very brief but I asked a couple of questions and he answered me this way.
What do you think of interracial dating, such as BW/AM?
What's race have to do with anything? Why does it matter? I don't like racist people. Everyone should get along, we are all the same.
Would you date someone of a different race?
I have. Race does not matter as long as I am attracted to them.
Would you date a black woman?
Yes, as long as I am attracted. (He said it in the Korean way. He may have meant: Yes, as long as the person attracts them as in good person and all that. What keeps us with the person we are with. Like personality and stuff. )
He is to the point.
Now extra information:
He is Korean and he gave me a straight honest answer. If he had a problem with it he would have said so. That is the reason I like it here so much. The people give straight answers with no or little BS. Plus, he is only 26 (I forget if that is Korean age (add a year) or his actual age) and probably never thought about it. I asked him multiple times (at different times) and he gave me the same answer.
Female. Attractive. Go for it!
He gave the same answer (which made me laugh) I did when I was asked by a Korean coworker (female) if I would date an Asian Man. She asked if I would marry one too.
She told me now it is not so strange to see Asian and Black together or AM/BW together like it would have been 10 years ago.
Male. Attractive. Single. Go for it!
I will keep going for it till I see him as a friend or more as I get to know him. Or until he shows me he is a total and complete dumba** like my last date in America. Then I drop him all together, most likely.
Have to get to know the person a little before you decide you want to go out with them.
He also added if they have a good personality.
I don't see him again till Tuesday when I go back to Seoul for him to show me around more.
He and I didn't get stared down like I read on other sites and all that. Some people looked at us but I think it was mainly because we were having our conversations totally in English. They look for a sec and went on their way.I asked him about it and he said it was because we are speaking totally in English, probably. Then went on to the next subject.
Another thing is Korean maturity levels are totally different from American ones. Here they stay with theri parents until they get married as well we get out as soon as possible. (I was gone at 17.) They don't have the chance to mature like we do because the family takes care of them and money stuff while they go to school or work -- IF they work and not getting money from the parents. That is why when I say I send my money home, my Korean friends and coworkers are surprised and call me a good daughter. They say this because they have people who still live with their parents who pay for everything at the house and go buy 3 million won purses (Over $3000 in US money - that is 7 months rent where my Mom lives and then some). To wear for one day or every few months. I should of took a picture.
I told Ankh that he is 26 (I forget if that is American age or Korean Age) and I get the little brother feeling from him. I mean much younger brother like 19, 20, MAYBE 21 (the age of my younger brother). The longer I know him, the more I will most likely think of him as a little brother from another mother. Since we just met I am not at that stage yet. To explain this better I will use teacher experience and what we have to deal with with the students. I teach elementary so I don't really notice too often the way they act younger than they are. But the middle school kids, I talk to my co workers that work at other schools, they act like elementary and high school acts like middle school age for most of it, University I hear is ok. Here they study study study so much that they don't get the chance to be kids. I can be walking back from the subway around midnight or so and see my students coming back from some camp or lesson. They are smart kids but their maturity level is low. Even in some of the older people, I hear, but it depends on their situation and what they had to go thru growing up. As in, a situation that happened that forced them to mature faster. My experiences I had growing up had forced me to mature differently then other people my age and the way I think is different from most others.
So when you guys ask me to ask him harder question as in what attracts him to black women and all that, I honestly don't think he will know how to answer me because he, most likely, has not even thought about it.
He just go with gut feeling ( Hot or Not) and acts and as he gets to know the person he will decide to take it further or not. Heck, I am 28 and I still don't know fully what attracts me to certain people or what attracts them to me. I just go with whatever gut feeling I have and if it is good and stays good we will work from there. If it is bad from the get go, stay the hell away from me. My face is very expressive, so it will show what I am feeling. It's one of the reasons I am straight and to the point, I suck at lying if you are looking at me also it just crap I need to remember for later. I know what ideal man I want, but your heart wants what your heart wants.
I remember Hateya writing way back that she was thinking her future hubby was too skinny and some other stuff and when she looked in his eyes she saw something there that attracted her. Sorry, I am doing this by memory. I still haven't slept yet really. Mama Nurse called (that is a different post.)
I'm not making blanket generalizations. I had actually planned on asking multiple men of various ages as I stayed here and got to know more people and learned the language more. I was going to ask Sexy and the Men. I am rethinking of sharing that when he does answer because of the way some people are posting. He may see it the wrong way especially if I am not there to explain to him.
What is with this older stuff anyway? I don't think you guys are that much older than me. I will be 29 and technically by Korean age they consider me 30 (they go by each year you live. Ex. when you are born you are 1).
I will post more of these as I get them... Maybe. Hopefully from various ages.
Again, sorry if incoherent. Tell me if I am missing any other information. Ankh is their any information I wrote in the email missing from here that may clear things up?
Hateya - thanks for clearing up how to say your name. I was all wrong most of the time.
