How we met (1)

We have been together now for just over 6 years including dating and marriage.
I thought it would be nice to write how we met.
James and I once made a video about it, but we never went in details.
So... if you are interested in learning how we met!! This is a real version. hahaha.

We met at work.
I just graduated from a college, and I started working at an English language Institute as an English teacher. I wanted to save up money to go to a graduate school to the US, so I was preparing to take GRE test and work at the same time. My second week of the work, James came as a substitute teacher. I went to my classroom and encountered James who was sitting in front of students who were enjoying their break time. James was just sitting there looking at the students and spending the break time there. (During the break time, teachers come to teachers office, but he was just a substitute and he did not have his desk, so he probably just decided to stay in a classroom.) When I first saw him, he just looked so cute. Hahaha. To be honest, I never met any black person around my age until then. I was a bit amazed by how cute a black person is and how interesting for me to see him. I was just a typical Korean girl who was never exposed to other ethnic people except for white people. (Yeah, yeah, I know. I was not cool, then. lol)

I wanted to talk to him, but he always seemed not to enjoy talking. James later told me that he was shy in front of me. (cute! hahaha)

This was how we first met.

This will be a series story. So..

TO BE CONTINUED....

  4. I'm a Black male. James is a lucky man and it seemed like his luck started from day one. It seems you were already interested in him or at least attracted to him (the same thing?) before he ever said a word to you. It's interesting that you thought his "shyness" was cute. With Black women, such shyness or introversion would be considered unattractive and a deal breaker. An introverted Black man can be himself and still have a chance with an Asian woman. This is a beautiful love story. I only wished I had such a beautiful story to share with the world.

    3. Please don't generalize. No two people are exactly the same. This applies to groups of people as well (even a small group of friends).
      Open yourself and you will be attracted to and find people who are beautiful on the inside.
      Lily's story is how love is. If you are open to it, the time taken is so minute that it is barely measurable. But most people aren't anymore. We have a list or set of predispositions that unfortunately close us to what is really important..

    So not exposed to black people made you uncool?
    Wish I a lot less cooler or uncool living in EU.

    Have fun in USA.
