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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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).
