QotD: First Crush

How old were you when you had your very first boyfriend/girlfriend? Do you still know them now? 
Submitted by KIM

I was 5.  Her name was/is Helen.  She was/is Korean (yeah, yeah, somethings never change and I should have learned early on).  I have not seen her in almost 20 years. 

Helen if your out there, turn around bright eyes, because I need your love tonight, and  I need you more than ever.  Yes forever is gonna start tonight. 

It ended badly. Nothing I can say, a total eclipse of the heart.*

Okay, you got me, I have a baby and I think it might be hers.  I am not really sure who the mother is, but it could be her. 

Seriously, if you are Helen or know her (I don't remember her last name but I am sure it is Kim, Lim, Park, or Choi) let me know.  I am curious what happened to her (where she went to medical/law school).

omg. i was singing it as i was reading it. damn you. i'm sure her last name was lee. ;P

Yes, I forgot Lee. So, I have it narrowed down to her being Korean. I think only 25% of Korean girls at that time where named Helen, 25% were Grace (especially if their last name was park), and 50% were Ester (mostly Kim).

LOL. i'm surprised you knew that many korean girls. where were you living at the time?and yes. helen lee, grace park, esther kim. those were the 3 most popular names. heh.

Budd said...

OMG! Were you a Park? I lived next to an Army base of course. Also the Korean population here in Nashville is booming.
New popular names are Anna/Annie, Hanna, Emily, Suzie. I notice a lot of girls just get a name that sounds like their Korean name now ie. Suzie = Su-Ji, Ginger = Jin-Ju
I think Steven, Sam, John, and Joseph still take the cake for boys.
Most American names for Korean kids are biblical.

I went to school with Helen Kim, Budd. Perhaps that was your baby? Her family was from Korea and they had a Korean food store. It was in upstate New York however so you may be off the hook.

It is possible that she moved and skipped ahead a couple of years at school.
