Unfortunately it doesn’t always work out as the boy wasn’t interested in me.
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.
I don’t like having to wonder if my date is interested in being in a relationship with me, and dating isn’t very fun because of the games involved in the process.
On the other hand I like that American men are more chivalrous than Japanese men and will do things like pay for dates and hold the door open for me. Has your dating experience in Japan been different than in your home country?
Personal Experience And take my time I did, I actually waited another couple months until I was again on Phi Phi.
Luckily this time I was living above a sweet tattoo joint and the guys work was epic.
This was a little strange to me because I wasn’t sure what to do if I was really into someone.
Another thing that I noticed was that American men tend to pay for dates but Japanese men usually don’t.
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.
