Successful at 49 With No Dating Experience
A man in his late 40s, who is a ‘Kingsan-jik’ (an internet slang combining ‘King’ and ‘Production Worker’, referring to a high-wage, large corporation production job with virtually guaranteed retirement like a public servant), has candidly revealed why he remains single. He has never even kissed, despite nearing the age of 50.
Recently, Blind, an anonymous online community for employees, posted a post titled “I’m a 49-year-old virgin”.
Mr. A, who is presumed to be a Hyundai Motor production executive, shared his painful past, saying, “I’m talking about this with the help of some late-night liquid courage.”
He reminisced, “When I was young, my parents always struggled to make ends meet. My grandmother, who had symptoms of dementia, took care of my siblings and me, but we ran out of rice at home.”
Continuing, he said, “I took a leave of absence from school and tried various jobs, and luckily, I became a contract worker in Hyundai Motor’s production department. Thanks to my team leader’s recommendation, I also became a full-time employee.”
Life wasn’t easy. After his siblings graduated from school, his grandmother passed away, ending her hard life. He was in his early 30s at the time. As he paid off his debts and suffered from Burnout syndrome, he found himself in his mid-30s before he knew it.
People around him found it strange that he wasn’t married. He was offered several blind dates, but his love life never progressed. Mr. A had his reasons.
Since childhood, he had to help with household chores, leaving him with no time to hang out with his peers. His relationships with the opposite sex were the same. For him, books were his only friends and the window to the world.
He once met a strikingly beautiful woman on a blind date. His heart pounded, his head spun, and he tried to keep his composure, maintain etiquette, and not ramble, but the atmosphere waned.
The woman sighed softly and said, “I can’t teach you everything from the beginning. What am I going to do?”
Then he realized that he was doing his homework too late for his age.
Mr. A wrote, “I’m 49 years old now. I think I’ll probably have my first kiss in my next life,” and chuckled bitterly. He added, “I’m a 49-year-old virgin and doing well. Don’t get stressd about trivial things and find happiness in small things in life.”
