I need a man in my life
« on: July 02, 2004, 11:25:44 AM »
No, not like that you sick fucks.

Sometimes, I'll sit around and want a male role model in my life.  My dad is sorta like that, but he was never around when I was a kid cause he was working all the time.  I was an only child for 14 years, so no older brothers, and our family was alone in the USA, so there were no older relatives I could turn to.

I ain't complaining, cause my life has been good thus far.  But sometimes I wish I had that older male figure in my life who could have stood up for me against bullies, talked to me about girls and sex, the SATs and going to college, and how to act on my first job, things like that.  My dad couldn't and didn't do any of these things for me, he kinda expected me to figure it out myself.

Sometimes I miss that aspect about being in Korea.  The male relationships are closer there.  It doesn't have to even be an older relative.  It can be a "sunbae", who can be an older alum or co worker, or even an older friend.  These older dudes customarily take you under their wing, buy you some soju, give you good advice, things of this nature.  I think that aspect of Korea I miss the most, and I don't get that here and sometimes I feel all alone.

It's a totally Korean thing, too.  I could never have that kind of bond with an older dude that's not Korean, it's hard to explain.

I've been turning fobby of late, watching Korean dramas and listening to K-Pop again, and its kinda made me nostalgic about Korea.  Sometimes I sit around wishing  I had an older dude I could just go out to have some dinner with and pour out all my life's issues.

Oh well, felt kinda down today, so felt like ranting.

I don't know, does anyone else feel similarly?

its a korean thing.  the sunbae-hoobae relationship, the hyung-dongseng relationship...its like having a mentor to look up to, vent to, someone to buy you dinner or drinks, someone to teach you the 'right' way of drinking (korean mannerisms), someone to show you korean etiquette...

ive found that in school, i never had a person like this either.  funny thing is, i found this hyung at an old job and he's still there for me.  its important to find someone with similar interests.

i would offer, but im no role model.  and youre in cali.  im not moving there.

put the female dog in her place if she gets out of line.

Korean style.  You know, give her a 1000 dollars and let her shop.

Thanks for the offer, but I figured that one out on my own..  Maybe you could help me with putting on a rubber though, could never figure that out
