This was a little strange to me because I wasn’t sure what to do if I was really into someone.
When I first moved America to attend college, I was nervous about starting a life in a new country because I wasn’t sure how quickly I would be able to adapt to the new culture.
Even though it had been my dream to live in America, I was very excited but nervous at the same time.
In America, it really depends on the person but I have never experienced this type of initiation.
I find that dating is more casual and at times it’s hard to understand if we are dating or just hanging out.
Among Japanese teenagers the most basic way of starting to date someone is by giving them a “kokuhaku” or love confession.
This sounds a bit creepy but it’s not so much telling someone you love them but rather the Japanese way of letting them know you like them and asking them out.
▼”Let me get the doo–uhhh, yeah, you might have to deal with that yourself.” We can’t wondering if some of these women have ever gotten past the first few months of dating a foreign guy, though.
Whatever your ethnicity, that level of chivalry tends to go right out the door after a few years of marriage…
Growing up in Japan my parents were really strict and so I didn’t get an opportunity to start going on dates until after I graduated from high school.
I did have a Japanese boyfriend but I ended things with him to go to school in California.
Anyways, these are the things that I have learned from dating men in America and these are very uniquely different experiences. Quite frankly I don’t think either of them is very effective.
