this is me

This started life as a message to Megan: homo iPhone apps


(1) a 23 year old gay who works at a hagwon in Kumho-dong messaged me. Unfortunately, at 169cm, he's a pocket gay. Too short.

(2) Totally built 24 year old Chosun Engineering student has great potential. AND he plays the guitar. I approve.

(3) 30 year old religious coffee shop owner (with whom I had a date earlier this week) continues to message me. I don't know how I feel about this.

(4) Random guy in Mokpo messaged me. We have a nice conversation, and then he tells me that his boyfriend hates Korea and can't wait to leave. "Why would foreigners hate it here?" he asked in a plaintive tone (if social networking messages could be described as plaintive). I explain: maybe they don't like the food, or the people aren't friendly, or they hate their job, or they miss home. He replies, "Oh, I understand. I'm so sad. Thank you very much. I'm sorry for bothering you." Much like a prostitute, I am the person guys come to for therapy.

(5) Finally, the entire reason I started writing this: a guy who speaks great English and lives less than a kilometer away messaged me. He seems normal enough (although he is also a pocket gay). Then he said, "My name is Min Kyu. It's nice to meet you~"


It's kind of funny, in a sad way.

There are a few others, but these are the only ones for whom I can think of anything witty to say.
