    Honestly I’m not really sure what my Korean ex thought of me when we met. Later when I asked him, he told me he was attracted to my body. But about personality, most likely he was intrigued because I’m the one who started talking to him and gave him my phone number. Beyond that, I’m not really sure.

    To me too, a hero need not necessarily be one with superhuman strength or one who rescues damsels in distress or saves a whole city or village or nation. Just being ready to help others in whatever way one can and treating everyone with respect and not causing mayhem and murder so to speak is sufficient, to me, to qualify as a hero. And this also includes the guts to uproot oneself to go to a strange place so far away with an entirely different culture and not knowing the local lingo and not knowing anyone (what more if the fairer sex) and yet adapting so well and finally mastering the local language. So I can understand why John called you a hero.
