Hello, moved to Korea from the states. Looking for someone to explore Korea with, and go hiking and explore parks. I love having a picnic with a nice book, fruits and tea. It's nice to lie down and listen to the birds and feel the wind and sun on my skin and practice mindfulness, while thanking God for all that I have and for my health and life. Also having good company and companionship would be nice. I'd like to find a genuine, sincere, honest and compassionate person. Someone who is to the point and knows what they want in life and see if I'm an asset in their life or could help support those dreams and vice versa. And if there's no connection, at least you've made a friend. They are always nice to have and maybe can help lead you to a new place, ideas or opportunities, or more good friends. Who knows? Over time, you'll gradually find out these things. I feel that The Lord makes us meet some people for a reason. Whatever their purpose was in your life will reveal itself later in time. But there have been several people in my life that I feel I've met definitely not by accident and glad that I've met them(that The Lord connected our paths). I have not met "the one" or the "life partner" yet. And I believe that's one of the greatest things about being alive and to find that. And I believe I'm at least half way through life, if I could find such a person, I think life's happiness would multiply and things will feel exponentially better. I look at my time being alone as The Lord preparing me to be ready for such a person, or He's getting the other person ready for me. I'm not the type to just pick from a random person who happens to be available at the time. I think when things feel right for both people, you'd know. And I look at my failed first marriage as a lesson to realize why it didn't work and things I could work on to make myself a better person. And that person wasn't for me and I have yet to find the one. So it happened for a reason so someone who is better suited for both of us can appear when the time is right. In God's time, whenever that is we don't know. I've taught at 2 public elementary schools and at a public middle school in Korea. And at one private school and now at one of the big academy branches in Seoul. I really enjoy teaching English to various age groups, and going sightseeing. (There are so many places on my itinerary.) It'd be nice to have a travel companion. I want to visit lot of the K drama filming sites. ( Many of them look so sophisticated and scenic). Definitely plan on frequenting Sorak Mountain.(been there 2x, but there are so many trails to explore). (I love hiking + the exercise + the fresh air), and the beaches nearby (Naksan +Sokcho Beach). I like to swim too, but haven't found a place to lap swim. I love exploring parks, going to many symphonies/concerts around Seoul, and meeting different people from around the world. I am an army brat. (My stepdad (he has raised me since I was very young) ,was a NCO: non-commissioned officer for 20 years. The army can truly feel like a family, esp. when stationed at far away places from home and they look out for you and make sure that you have a place to feel welcome and feel at home, even when you're far away from home. Some of them feel like true family, because they treat you like one. ( I love that many of the English teacher friends that I have made over there were like that too. I have made some very deep and lasting friendships. The types of people you'd remember forever.) I like thought provoking conversations, interesting things, and I like to learn new things and read a lot (diy/tutorials, memoirs, biographies/autobiographies). I love taking pictures, playing the piano, gardening, bird watching, nature photography, and enjoying the company of good people. I think of Korea very fondly because I've always had a great time taking wonderful pictures of places. (Many people there are good at photography and have dslr cameras.) I love going to the palaces (Changgyeonggung aka The Secret Garden is one of my favorites in the fall (autumn leaves) and spring(cherry blossoms), and Sorak mountain. If I could stay as long as I wanted to hike, I would do all of the hikes, and my step dad was stationed in Korea 2x before he retired from the army. I have met many wonderful people there through the army and also many English teachers from around the 7 English speaking countries around the world. (U.S.A., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, U.K. , South Africa, Ireland)

Someone who is kind, compassionate, considerate, empathetic, optimistic, uplifting & positive to be around, hopeful, encouraging, caring, sweet, has a good sense of humor + also a good heart. ("At the end of the day, you will not remember the person with the most beautiful face, but you will remember the person with the most beautiful heart and soul.") (It's very important as looks fade as everyone ages.) Someone who does not use foul language, respects others, enjoys sightseeing, (parks, museums, gardens, etc), working out (important for health reasons), and going to events (like classical concerts). Someone I could enjoy spending my time with and connect with, (have quality time with). As I am getting older, I am realizing what is inside (inner beauty), is very important. I'd much rather have someone with a lovely soul vs a someone who is cold hearted with a mean streak. Life is too short to be unhappy, so we should all make the best of it. And we all get to only live once. It is also important to treat others as we'd like to be treated. After all, people remember you by how you treated them and how you made them feel. I realized through marriage counseling (when I was married), that there's no such thing as a relationship without troubles. ( This was coming from a marriage counselor with decades of experience). The average couple has 3 disagreements/arguments in a month. It's how you work through it, if you make the choice to work it out and compromise. Marriage is about compromise and disagreeing nicely (without name calling, berating or being nasty.) But that was the way he, (ex husband) and his family handled things. (He learned that from his parents from an early age. (They argued in front of him and called each other all sorts of names and said awful things about each other.) Unfortunately, he learned to do the exact same thing that his parents did to each other. A doctor and social worker said that those people either 1. recognize it's wrong and don't repeat it or 2. they think it's ok because the 2 of the most important people in their lives did it, and they learned that as a kid by observing, and think that it's normal. Normal in their world, but not in other people's world. And turn into a lifetime habit. Words do cause damage. ( Invisible wounds). (Once you say things, you can't take them back . You can only apologize.) And it didn't come out until years after the marriage. That's not the type of marriage that I wanted to stay in. I also met with 4 chaplains and they all said the exact same thing. That's not God's idea of marriage, He wouldn't want anyone to be in that type of marriage, and they even showed me a bible verse saying I have His permission to leave. Marriage should be about bringing out the best in each other, supporting each other, being there during the hard times to be encouraging, and working out differences. You are "one" after all when you're married. They also said, just like the social worker and doctor said, the first step is for that person to recognize the problem, and get counseling (new information). Without those necessary steps, nothing will ever change. Things might seem better for awhile, and one little thing could make that person snap, and (if they don't admit/take accountability for their actions, but instead blame), the relationship will be stuck in that awful loop/cycle forever. That's what happened to my marriage. It was un-saveable, because he wouldn't recognize the problem. I know that nobody is perfect but there are ways to get the message across, without being nasty and cussing. I did try to discuss it with him and his family several times, but they thought there was nothing wrong with exploding and cussing people out. One of my very good friends from high school , whom I still keep in touch with (we're both army brats too), said that how you solve disagreements is very important in how the relationship/marriage will be. It is soooooo true! I believe in a cool down period so one does not act out in anger and do things they will later regret. Many counseling, psychology, and even parenting books say that. Minimum of 10 minutes of a cool down period. (That is what I have learned from my step father. I have never seen or heard him act out in anger, do or say mean things to my mom). I at least admit to my mistakes. I know that I'm not perfect. Learning how the family deals with conflict is very important in finding out how they are. Too bad that it took many years for that to surface. And I didn't know how to deal with them, because my parents handled things very differently. Had I known how his family was, I would've never even dated him. I know that this is very lengthy and deep, but it's "very important" to me. At my age and stage in my life, I don't like to waste time (time is precious), don't want to deal with people who string others on & play games, act like a totally different person from the beginning, (and they turn out to be some un-recognizeable, almost a totally different person years later).

More About Me

Favorite Movie:

Cinema Paradiso There are not many heartwarming movies like these. I can't even think of any movies that are up there with this one. I LOOOOVE the ending. I have the piano sheet music to this one and always get complimented and asked what it is if I play it in public.

Favorite Book:

The Secret (I believe in the laws of attracton) & also The 5 Love Languages ( My love languages are quality time, words of encouragement, physical touch ( cudding and hugging: 20 seconds of it releases oxytocin which is a bonding chemical in the brain). The other 2 are acts of service and gifts. I don't know why I don't care for gifts that much and acts of service are nice too, but not as important as the first 3. I guess they are all important.

Right now I have a new interest in memoirs and spy stories. I want to read about Mata Hari, and there are some really good books on Amazon about N Korean spies. Some people have very interesting life stories to tell. And I would read memoirs of missionaries. I will probably love it.

Favorite Food:

Vegetarian, bibimbap, kimbap, lentil soup, bean chili, anything healthy. You are what you eat , so might as well eat well and be healthy. I like to look at Dr. Oz's website or Forks Over Knives to pick out new recipes. I also love to make gluteun free veggie dumplings. Fry them(in healthy oils), put them in soup, or steam them. Everyone loves them. I made some and took it to a hospital and they loved it. It made someone's day and I felt good that they were that happy about it. Everyone likes yummy, healthy, and nutritious foods! It might even make you new friends. I try to eat mostly vegetarian food, but sometimes I eat meat. But it's rare. I wouldn't mind cooking meat dishes if I end up with a carnivorous person. I make good chicken soup in the slow cooker, chili, Mexican food (my step dad is Mexican American), burgers, and orange vinaigrette chicken salad.

Favorite Music:

Classical: Bach , Paganini, Vivaldi, Rachmaninoff, Mozart, Hayden, Ennio Morricone ( the compser who wrote the theme to Cinema Paradiso). I went to his concert in Seoul and it was the best concert that I've ever been to my life. He played Cinema Paradiso, The Good, Bad, and the Ugly, Gabriel's Oboe, and so many other masterpieces that I cannot remember at the top of my head. I also like oldies, 80's, and some trance and also foreign music. I loved living in Seoul, so I can go to all of the awesome classical concerts. They even had Yo Yo Ma. ( I found out too late and the tickets were sold out). So it'd be a dream come true if I could find someone who'd love those things as much as I do.

Dress Style:

I dress nice and presentably. I like to wear dresses, cute tops with leggings, skirts or pants. And cute and comfy workout clothes. Working out is so important for the mood(releases endorphins makes you a more pleasant person to be around, and keeps diseases away).

Humor:

Cautious (I get scared of people taking things the wrong way, which is why I am quiet around people I can't figure out), and silly.

Hobbies & Interests:

I like playing ballads, gospel, classical, and movie themes on my keyboard. I love going to the dog park with my furbabies. They love to play in the blackberry maze and chase rabbits in there. I also love going to art museums and parks. I found a really nice one as I'm leaving Washington state.(It always happens are you're leaving. Sigh.) The rhododendron garden in Federal Way is breathtaking. I could be there all day reading to classical music, and even meditate. I love oriental gardens too and I enjoy gardening. I enjoy nature photography. I like taking pictures of birds, chipmunks, and wildlife. I have pictures of an owl that tried to eat my dog in my backyard last year, raccoons hiding out in douglas fir trees, chipmunks climbing a tree, different kinds of birds in trees singing their songs, and some deer sightings that I've experienced this summer at a fruit orchard where I let my furbabies loose.

Travelled:

Texas ( my sister and mom live there), Thailand was a lot of fun. $5 an hour massage, you can eat like a king for $10, and the world class beaches. Phi Phi Islands and Solomon Island are so amazing! Snorkeling was a lot of fun. I wish I had thought of buying a waterproof camera for underwater pictures.

Cultural Adaption:

I don't know. I prefer Americans. I am Korean American and want to live in Korea for a few years but want to settle down in the states. I guess it depends on the person and situation. That would have to be an out of this world kind of love. I know that it happens to some people, but definitely not everyone in their lifetime.

Romance:

Camping trip, road trip, going to Sorak Mountain (esp. in the fall), or cooking and watching movies.

Personality:

Calm, easygoing, and quiet.

My Perfect Match is:

Someone who is kind, considerate, caring, doesn' t use foul/cuss word/hateful language. I learned the hard way that without God it won't work ( a lot of the times), which is why my marriage failed. His family and himself are all atheists. They don't care about doing bad things. It matters to me, because when we get called home and have to face Him. You don't want to be ashamed of yourself. I 'm not saying that I'm perfect or that I have never sinned. You know that everyone has. But Christians (true ones), watch their actions and try hard to stay on the right path.

Safety Tip - Love at first sight?

Be suspicious of online dating acquaintances who profess their love for you after just a few minutes or after a few emails or instant messages; love is generally an acquired feeling. Claiming instant, undying love for someone is a ploy often used by scammers who prey on the emotions of online dating users. Report anyone who you are suspicious about by clicking the "Report Abuse" icon.
