Steven Yeun starred in a movie titled Minari - about Korean American first generation immigrants (and the second generation child) settling in rural America.

Curious to hear the feminine perspective on this post. Someone mentioned using seeking.com presumably for the more traditional sugar daddy/baby dynamic. But several other commenters said they use it do regular dating, and that many women on there are using it to filter to successful/financially stable men for ltr. Do any women here actually do this and if so has it been worthwhile? I’m tired of Bumble/Hinge but I don’t know if this is a good step or not? Or are there other dating websites you’d recommend https://joinfishbowl.com/post_h1fxsshrrt
