The topic of boyfriends and husbands has been coming up with rather amusing frequency in the last, what, one week because, apparently, it is of very real concern to others of my peer group because we are at that marrying age.
Had lunch with a friend today, talked about types, and I said (which I repeated later to Mum about men in general) that a guy should have a sense of responsibility and be sincere, that those are two character traits that make me think, Hmm, okay, he’s a good guy — but the problem is that they’re surprisingly difficult traits to find in people. I met one person in Korea like that, who made me think, Wow, 좀 멋있다, and, you know, it kind of just comes down to a singular conviction of mine: that we need to live lives of integrity.
Then, as usual, I went on to say that I need a musical guy because, if there’s something I learned at Jisan, it’s that I’m a sucker for musicians — but we knew this before (we’ve known this for ages, really), so I guess it’s not really something I learned but was able to confirm because I told the Superhero Bud that over Skype, and she gave me that deadpan, yeah, I KNOW look, the smartass — but, anyway, as far as boyfriends and husbands go, as I told the brother on Sunday, if it’s meant to be, God will provide, and he had to agree, That’s a good answer, and I said, Yep, and that’s the extent of my worrying over my current and future relationship status because, seriously, I’ve bigger things of concern on my plate at the moment.
It was a fun conversation, though. I’m glad I was able to see her before I leave. (:
