    THANK YOU :3

    • i think you should be careful before getting serious! You never met him before, and talking about marriage already is kind of strange. If I were you I should ask my parents about it~

    • I’ll try answer all your questions if I can (and as clearly as I can):

      – Yes you can confess (고백 – confession, 고백하다 – to confess), I think a cute way to confess is by writing song lyrics… or maybe that’s just me, a simple one is “The Confession Song” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAv7MxPUclc) and a long one is SEENROOT’s 오빠야 (Sweet Heart).
      – In my opinion, the age difference is normal… My parents’ age difference is 11 years… so, don’t fret.
      – I do think he’s thinking about marrying you… but the thought of marriage at an early stage like that.. All I’m going to say is don’t rush into it.

      *Also… a little note: You must be able to communicate in Korean well. Well enough to settle down with the Korean man you are talking about.
      And thank you for posting this, this gives me more hope for interracial marriages and relationships! ^^

  3. Hi,

    I’m a 21 year old Filipina and I met this Korean guy, well, I never been to Korea but I was in love with Korean culture, I’m doing a lot of research and trying to learn everything about it, suddenly while I’m browsing, I saw an app to meet Korean people, out of curiosity, I installed it with the purpose of knowledge exchange and at least to have a Korean friend. I will not mention the app anymore. While browsing, I accidentally pushed the Hi button to a guy, too late I know he was notified already, I checked on his profile and he is good looking so that’s fine, I ignored it because I know he won’t even respond on that, when suddenly he sent me a message and he introduced himself so I’m a bit shocked, to make the story short, we exchange conversations turns out that he is also looking for someone to talk to to learn English. Were both not comfortable of using the app so we decided to continue the conversation using LINE. Conversation went well because he is at least can understand and communicate in english. I don’t know but it feels like we’ve known each other for so long though we’ve just met. Simple conversations turns out to be different, We are already exchanging sweet words, He was very sweet and he makes me feel those butterflies in my stomach. He was older than me and was on his 30s but I don’t even care because I also prefer to date older guys than the younger ones or within my age because they’re so immature. Days passed that I think I’ve already liked him, a lot though I know it won’t work because we don’t even see each other. After couple days we don’t have any communication at all, I was curious why, then after a week or 2 weeks maybe, He sent me a message saying he was busy and there are a lot of things he needs to get done. I understand because I know how Koreans are into when it comes to work ethics. I responded and we exchange conversations again and after couple of days to weeks I haven’t heard anything from him again. It’s just sad that you are in love with the person whom you can’t even see in person and he already affected your everyday life that there will be no days that I was not thinking about him hoping that someday, I will hear back from him again. I just want to know if how will you know if he’s still into you or not, I don’t have any idea how because maybe they’re different from an average Filipino guys. I’m still waiting for him and because I know that this not just only infatuation but I was hit by this guy already that I’m planning to go to Korea just to see him.
