They like “foreigners.” It’s like somebody visited Japan one time, went home and wrote about it, and from then on everybody ran around repeating the same stuff. In fact, if you stay long enough, and you don’t hook up, then by default everyone’s hooking up but you. So in the end, I wrote the article, partly because I enjoy reading Jasmine’s site and wanted to contribute.
At the end of the night, there’s always people hooking up. S., and I didn’t have to send fifty text messages before a lady’d let me pay for her entire dining experience. Jeez, for such skinny people, Japanese gals can sure pack it away.
And although I’ve never met her, from what I gather she’s a very cool person. For some reason Japanese women seem to find even ugly foreign guys attractive …..” Now I don’t even know what hackles are, but if I’ve got any, I’m sure that got them up. So do foreign guys also go out with Japanese women? I personally think the “foreign guy with Japanese girl” sighting is pretty rare.

Trainspotting is the first novel by Scottish writer Irvine Welsh, first published in 1993.
It takes the form of a collection of short stories, written in either Scots, Scottish English or British English, revolving around various residents of Leith, Edinburgh who either use heroin, are friends of the core group of heroin users, or engage in destructive activities that are implicitly portrayed as addictions that serve the same function as heroin addiction.
Like if I said, “Japanese architecture is stunning,” somebody’d stand up and complain that the cities are just jumbled amalgamations of aging concrete projects.
