Think Yin-Yang as opposed to circle halves--when opposites are brought together, they form a harmonious and indestructible bond, while two identical parts can only be put together loosely.
Anyway, when coming to Japan for a longer period of time, you might want to find someone to be all lovey-dovey with. In an academic or working environment, at the club, or sitting next to you at Shibuya Starbucks--the perfect man might be just about anywhere.
So now when I go home I immediately look for the nearest Asian guy like ‘Hey! Christa: I was with a girlfriend in Shibuya and two men approached us on the street and we went out for drinks. *Laughter* Rebecca: Exactly, each time that’s happened to me the guy has been pretty hammered.
My guy doesn't mind having fights, loudly, in public, in English, but I do.
When we started dating, I earned more than he did (by a lot), so I paid for a lot of things.
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.
