A woman shared how she dated to get married quickly as she was in her 30s but now she wishes she had “shopped around” more after watching Korean dramas.
Here is the story
10 years ago to the day, my last ex-bf and I broke up. Suddenly I am reminded time flew by so quickly. It affected me a lot back then and I probably was feeling down for months given how we were together for 4+years and I had expectations we would end up long term.
I know the ex-es did not work out for good reason (and I genuinely feel glad we did not end up together) even though they were from good family backgrounds, good university education and financially stable.
Subsequently, I went out with guys only with the sole goal of getting married within a short time, because was i already in my early thirties. So I did get married quickly, settling for stability and get dating over and done with.
Now, with the K drama fever featuring handsome males, I wonder what would have been if I shopped around more back then (cougar scenes introducing alternatives I never entertained prior). I know real life is not reel life. This K-drama fever is messing too much with my mind.
- I’m not sure what level of stardom those k dramas might have, but as someone who has gone through quite a handful of relationship experiences, I’m actually super duper happy that I ended up going “shopping” for the good faces (on top of good profile of course) in my last round, cause now I get to wake up to (in my own standards) a super handsome face everyday
- You know there is a reason why k drama always end at wedding at the most. They don’t show the life after wedding, because it’s boring and ugly
