Hey, I’m a Korean-American woman who enjoys simple pleasures in life. Faith, conversation that engages the heart and mind, beauty, and nature are a few things that interest me. I love to hike, walk, watch sunsets, eat good food, eat organic foods, and be with people. I’m learning to embrace my humanity, and as I do, I find my ability to embrace the humanity around me grows. I hope to keep growing.
I want to live simply, and I continue to find myself surrounded by more than I need and still reaching for more. Consideration of fair trade, carbon footprint, sustainable farming, recycling, bees, alternative forms of transportation, etc. remain in my consciousness. Homelessness and other issues regarding the wellbeing of people spark and maintain my interest, propelling me toward places that feel sticky for some, even for me. And, I want to go deeper.
My faith is breath to me; it flows in and out of my being and births life. It's important for me to practice my faith within relationship--with friends, strangers, myself, neighbors, our world, and, the universe. Relationships are important to me, and I'm intentional about making more room for it in my life. Hence, Match.
I want to be a giver. I want to live with a posture of abundance, more than living under the fear of scarcity. This hope compels deepest places of my heart to move toward the unbroken flow of giving-and-receiving—and participate. I long for the overflow of my heart to spill with unmeasured generosity into the cracks and crevices and chasms of our world. I want to be with a man who shares this heart and longs to explore “what if” together. The venture need not be flashy or big. I envision something small, sustainable, and human-sized—something true to who we are, emerging from the soil of our hearts in good season.
I’m growing to integrate all of me, the parts I like, along with the parts I’d often rather be without. I’m growing to be more whole and more human. It’s fun. The journey’s been worthwhile so far. It’d be even more fun to share journey.
Here are a few characteristics I hope for in a man: posture toward personal growth, honest with himself, lives day-to-day praxis of faith, lover of God, has good friends in his life--other men he shares his heart and journey with, practices a good-enough healthy lifestyle, the trajectory of his life is primary shaped by the orientation of his hope, and church is an important part of his life.
Some activities I want to do with you: hike, camp, explore unnoticed corners of our neighborhoods, walk on the beach, sit on the sand, watch the water move, tinker with musical instruments, rock climb (I’m a beginner, you could teach me, or we could learn—same with the instruments), swim in the ocean, hike to a hot spring, sit, be, wash dishes, vacuum our cars, read, take a dance class, dance without one, fix our bikes at the Bike Kitchen road trip on bikes (it’s a hybrid), go to house concerts, soak in local open mics, build relationships with people without homes, create a place where our unhoused friends could hang-out, create a meet-up event where we invite people to pick up litter, read, eat simple food at home, spend time with people we love, engage with our faith communities in essential ways, love our neighborhoods and be humbled to find we were already loved back, play, and grow.
All the best to you, to us all as we risk opening ourselves up to the possibility of intimacy with someone who might want the same. Here’s the hoping.
