Concerns About Teaching English in Korea

Why Teach English in Korea

Meg and I have decided that before we go to Australia for a few months, we should pay off school debt so we are going to teach English in Korea.

Teaching English in Korea is really common for people who are looking to pay off debt because they pay for housing so your expenses can be minimal and the pay is decent.

Of coarse paying off debt is more like the reason we tell our parents so they feel OK going along with it. Korea is so different from America and it is a culture that we wouldn’t be able to experience as simple tourist. Working along side Koreans and not only learning the language but also becoming part of their culture is something that Meg and I feel very rewarded by.

Learning the Language

The language learning is more of my thing because I want to fluently speak at least five different languages, but I know Meg will catch on to the language quickly, and maybe even faster than me.

Being Married to another Woman

One thing I am a little worried about is the LGBT community. Everything I have read says that Korea is a bit behind when it comes to same-sex marriages. I don’t know if we are going to be safe being openly gay so we may need to be a little more discreet out in public.

Vlogging and Blogging

I want to vlog and blog with Meg while I am over there, so I need to make sure that we will still be safe if people recognize us. The first thing I am doing to ensure we will be safe, is to learn more about the experiences of people who are openly LGBT in Korea. Hopefully with their insight, we will be able to learn how to go about it in a safe manner.

3 Ways to Meet Other Lesbians on Vacation

If you are looking for tips about finding someone who will keep you warm at night on vacation, try looking somewhere else. Instead, I will focus on finding fellow Lesbians to enjoy their company, share stories and go out for drinks. Wouldn't it be great to make more lesbian friends that you could meet up with for future vacations?

Finding fellow lesbians in locations you are less familiar with, which is common for most vacation spots, is not an easy task, as you may have figured. However, I asked around and researched how other lesbians do it, and I have accumulated what I think will bring you the most success.

 

1. Go to LGBT supporting restaurants and bars

With more and more LGBT people coming "out" and creating communities around the world, it has become more common to find lists of Businesses that support LGBT communities. Often times you can search on your favorite internet browser for LGBT restaurants or LGBT hangout areas in "x" area.

There are tons of websites that have already built a great archive of places and reviews. One place I used to help for an upcoming trip that Meg and I are going on is called GayCities.com

 

2. Go to Local Facebook groups and see if there are any activities or common places to hang out

Social media is a great platform to find local groups and hangouts for lesbians. I have met so many people and gone to so many events that I would have never known about if I didn't take the time to check Facebook. I suggest checking in advance so that you can make any necessary adjustments to your travel plans if needed.

3. Try out Dating Sites - Status: Just looking for friends while I am in town

I was surprised to hear that dating sites and apps such as Tinder are so common for people looking for "just friends" and people in local areas. I have yet to try this, but I am planning on trying it with my Fiance during our next trip in a couple of weeks.

I didn't understand till now, but I finally know why some people are on dating sites when they just want friends, especially if they are from out of town. There is so much exposure and it is super easy to get a locals perspective for the local lesbian scene when you are asking the local lesbians.
