Today’s article is dedicated to all the things I have heared during my relationship and later on my marriage from Greek people.Truth to be told, at first those comments were annoying to me but as time passed I learned how to ignore it since it is me in the relationship and their opinion has no power here.
“WHERE DID ALL THE GREEK MEN GO?” First thing I deal with, is this. If I happen to meet new people, they will ask if I am seeing someone, so when I said I am dating a korean person,so I get to deal with things like “there is so many greek guys why did you have to find a korean person” HA…ha…ha Seriously, if you are with someone that makes you feel complete, why do you have to justify your actions? So, when I say this the next question is “what does he have that we don’t?” I never sat down to analyze that because, simply put, we would have a lot of misunderstandings, but your annoyed face when your girlfriends ask me how is my man in the relationship says it all dudes!
“NORTH OR SOUTH” In my head I always reply to this “dumb or dumber”( I reply this outloud lately) I can’t understand if this is a funny joke, I heard from other greeks that live in Korea that this is amongst the most annoying questions that every australopithecus(because this is what they are) say with an annoying smirk on their face…No it is not funny, especially when you hear it so many times and from the same people again and again…I just think of you as beings of limited intelligence (by limited I mean only the basics)
“MAY I ASK SOMETHING….YOU DON’T NEED TO ANSWER IF YOU DON’T WANT” Hearing this you know exactly where this is going. Something really really personal. I am not the kind to share my personal moments with other people, let alone in a public place like a cafe, also people that do that, I really believe they are low. And when you simply don’t want to reply to the question or you dont’t want to be asked, do they respect it? Of course no…(what did you expect from most greeks) Don’t they realize they are crossing the line? Also, what do they care? Are they interested to the opposite sex and especially korean men? Because those questions are being asked by guys at 95% of the times. And when they understand that they are not going to take a reply from you to the matter that they need to know about, thet say..Oh….oooook…..I understand…Are you on your right mind?! I don’t want to know what more I would have been asked If I was the friendly type.
“KOREAN…CHINESE…IT IS THE SAME” Oh really? So…with the same thinking you Greeks are same with Turkish people (check greek-turkish history) but when I say that you get annoyed and say I do not know history. Maybe you should learn some geography, and then you can act smart, Evn though I believe most people say this because they think they sound funny…No man, you sound stupid AF
“HOW DO YOU KNOW HE IS NOT CHEATING ON YOU?HOW COME YOU ARE NOT CHEATING ON HIM?” As long as this was a long distance relationship as I was a university student, this was one of the most common question. “You are here alone, how can you not cheat on him?” I don’t need someone else, or alternative. Also I consider my husband a really mature person, we both share the opinion that if you want to be with someone else there is no reason to be together. What would be the reason to be together and spend big amounts of money to meet in different countries and in our own countries everytime, if we didn’t think of our relationship as something serious? I just feel sorry about your relationships and your thoughts about what a relationship is, especially when they actually find weird the fact that we haven’t cheated….no dude, you are the weird here,not me.
“THIS COUNTRY MUST BE POOR” sweet summer child…..You know nothing….If you come to Korea, you will feel like you just walked out of a cave, you just don’t admit it.I have nothing further to comment.
“HOW CAN YOU LIKE THEM”
Uhm….personal taste? How can you like unrealistic women figures? Ah! here I want to add, I get so annoyed when guys say “we are so many men” we….My reply is, what is your problem? That you didn’t have a chance? Because this is what I get when you include yourself in. Also women, I might not thing that the type you like is attractive to me but I won’t judge, why should you? And why I didn’t prefer a greek person? At least from what I have encountered, because there are certainly some good guys, That attitude that I am th Alpha, and I know everything, and even the body posture, yes even that, annoys me, not to mention the way of approach, at least for guys of my age range. I just like my husband and that’s it!
“I DON’T WANT TO JINX IT BUT I THINK IT WON’T LAST” Where are you know to say this people? Although I have heard the epic “Eh…they might divorce” People! what is your problem?!
“WHY DO YOU WANT TO LIVE ABROAD”
Such an annoying question.”why do you want to live abroad?” My husband has his job in Korea already and it will be a good chance for my career too….”He can come here to work” But his salary will be crumbles if he comes here let alone, he might can’t find the same job as he has…And brace yourselves for the EPIC answer “you can do farming”..Ok ok….just give me a moment to set our degrees on fire…..(I don’t mind farming I even own land with olive trees) But lady, why your kid lives and works abroad? Just think before you talk…Jesus!
“THEY ARE EATING COCKROACHES THERE” Hold your horses. How much more can I take? Yes, dude, we go out to pick them up and fry them….Why do they think that all asian foods consists of bugs….and no, it doesn’t matter that you live in the country, they think they know better..Just for the record, the only bug food you are going to see in Korea is Beondegi silkworm pupaand thats it. No cockroach no scorpio no nothing.
This is some of the things I used to hear, some of it I still hear it, while some others are too much to mention in public.Just an advice, remove toxic people from your lives.
