Huh. I was just stopped on the way back home from work. 😶 I actually got off at the wrong bus stop and was walking with my headphones in, but this guy caught up to me and asked for my number. (He was sweating, haha. Was he nervous or as affected by Korea’s heat/humidity as I am?)
I don’t mind giving out my number or kakao id, to be honest. I think it’s a way to connect with people and am always impressed by anyone who is confident enough to come up to me. It takes a lot of guts to stop someone who is trying to consciously ignore the world and looks like they might eat you alive because they’re masking their anxiety with a cold stare. Not even kidding. I might have also been a head taller than this dude with my boots on.
I’m just apprehensive because I met my last boyfriend this same way and that didn’t turn out well. I could be barking up the wrong tree, as in maybe this person is only looking for friendship or is curious about foreigners or something. Who knows. I also shouldn’t apply past experiences as a template for the future, but that’s my nature and I seem to have bad luck with men, so there you go.
He said he was meeting a friend for dinner and kept asking what I was going to do now. Maybe I should have just tagged along? My problem is that I don’t like risks and new people and going with the flow. I really want to change that aspect of myself.
