There's a word I'm trying to see if there is a translation for. See the following scenarios.
- A young man is introduced to his girlfriend's parents for the first time. He is well-off, looks reliable and the safety and assurance the parents feel with him as a person...
The adjective would describe all of the last sentence. This same word is used to describe the following as well:
- Someone writing a test has prepared well for the test. He/she feels a certain way about the test, like being fully satisfied and confident about the test he/she will be writing or has written.
Assurance was also an adjective I was considering. Or is there different specific adjectives one would use in these different scenarios? 1.An attractive young man you feel safe having your daughter spend the rest of her life with who seems reliable 2. feeling you get when you write a well written test. Either or method of answering will be appreciated. Comments on the adjectives I mentioned would also help, as people can vote it up or down and I can get a general consensus.
Someone has described that word like this:
One can use it for something that can be used/benefited from life-long so there is no fear or worry.
In fact let me summarize the different places this adjective can be used:
when one has a lot of possessions or money, they feel this way. A bit like 'secure about one's life'
As this word is korean here's a bit of background in terms of the culture
Korean parents that are from the older generation love having sons. They say that having a son is like a symbol of strength, and (insert desired adjective here to indicate security and flourishing/producing of crops and income etc)
here's some word others have used: desireable, confident. So in total: 1. a son/ son-in-law that is someone that is reliable and you feel would protect your daughter and her reputation in life. 2. feeling you get when you wrote a test well.
As a added plus: (and some extra interesting info if it helps in any way) this also is the adjective people say they feel after they had a full meal. When they regain their strength and they don't need anything else indicating satisfaction and strength in being full? xD
So it's a long read, I tried to be specific and detailed but let me know if there is any other info I should provide. The word is 'din-din' or emsems typed on a korean keyboard.
In short one can say :
I feel ________. I'm satisfied, confident about the future, and happy how things are going. He is _______. implying satisfaction with the person, trust that good will come in the future with the relationship with this person and that you feel he is the guy that can sort things out and you can depend on
