The thing is, I am always on social media and I enjoy texting, especially popping in like: "Hey! How was your day?" let it be small talk or actual conversations. But how do I do that with him? I m 19 years old, he is 22 and I ve never had this situation happen before. This morning I had called him and asked him if he wanted to go on another date with me (this will be our third date) and he said sure but also thanked me for calling him, saying: "I really appreciate it."

  • What does it mean when a (Japanese) guy says he wants to be by your side?

    I m only adding his nationality because I m not sure if this statement is any different in Japan or Western countries. This guy I like, likes me and says this to me a lot. Does he mean dating or something else?

    My friend (who is interested in me) constantly says this to me. I know what kawaii means (like me and every other "weeaboo" on the planet). I am a Japanese learner and I can't seem to find the meaning, which means it's slang right?

But I m not sure the significance of it (similarly to 好き、愛してる、大好き) Thank you so much!

    I ve had a lot of bad experience with guys in my life, right to the point where I m kinda... scared to date. I m straight, and I ve always LIKED guys. I m not trying to be sexists, but I want to know if my thinking is rationally or created by fantasy and movies. Men that respect you and your personal space, that are very gentle and caring. Won t force stuff upon you (aka, sex or kissing), understanding of your emotions when you tell him, he can also be dominant in certain situations, but also very laid-back? I dunno if I described it right... truthfully I ve been used a lot and hurt a lot. I ve learned not to give my heart away as easily either or trust so easily as well. I ve been touched and physically assaulted by men (not raped). I had an ex boyfriend who once said to me: "Hey kiss me." And although he was playing, it triggered what had happened before with a man, and I had 3 massive anxiety attacks on our first date. Next day, he dumped me after saying it was okay to have a weakness, and saying he ll never leave me. I know douchebags exist regardless of gender, but it feels like I always attract these type of men, and it makes me wonder, do GOOD and KIND patient men really... really exist? Or do they have darker motives? I m only 18, I still don t have a lot of experience in the world yet. I m sorry if this offended anyone, but that wasn t my intention. I m just frightened.

    I m an 18 year old girl, I live with my Grandmother and her boyfriend (who has been living with us for about 7 years now.) When I was 5 years old, I moved in with my Grandma. Long story short, I had seperation anxiety with her, she barely leave the house. and I always tried to stay home from school. And being apart from her gave me intense nausea, and constant fear of her dying. As stated above, I m now 18 years old. I feel like I ve grown past my separation anxiety, especially after I traveled to Italy (with a class) for 11 days, and then Japan (I went to a language school and did a homestay) for 14 days. I wasn t bothered one bit. I was actually very happy and wanted to stay longer! But now my Grandma has gone on vacation on across-country road trip. She ll be gone for a whole month... and I dunno... Since the day has been approaching, I have been feeling really ill. Not nauseous, but my stomach hasn t been well. Yesterday, the day before she left, I was crying and couldn t sleep, only because I was scared that she was going to die while going across country. Especially after all the terrorist attacks recently. Today, I ve been experiencing nothing but headaches and stomach "pains" (like I said, it s not nausea, but it s similar to it) and lack of appetite. I was also running a small fever, but I m wondering if it s because of stress. I took 1 pain reliever for the fever and another for the headache. But the headache came back after a few hours.

    I am a self teacher of Korean and Japanese. I'm not good in either, but I've decided to fully settle down with Korean (as I enjoy it more). However, I have a small problem. I just hope that my problem is only because I'm new to learning Korean... but... When I try forming sentences, I have to really stop and think about what I have to say, what I have to form together. Pronunciation, as well as particles. I kinda think about it in English first. (Which I know it a bad thing.) Another problem is I'm too afraid to talk to people in Korean. I just feel like if I was to try, I wouldn't be able to talk. Like I would only be able to say my greetings and then get silent. And that's embarrassing, especially when they're waiting. Or if they ask me a question and I can't answer. I want to become more confident in speaking Korean, but how? And how can I stop trying to translate what I want to say into English. I just want to talk! Not convert English-->Korean. Because that's just more confusing! I've only been learning Korean for a month now.

    Don't get me wrong. I think a personality really makes someones looks. However, I couldn't date someone unless they were attractive first.

If they have a good personality, it would only make me fall in love even more, and I would look past their looks. But if they are really attractive and had a terrible personality, then I wouldn't think they were cute anymore. Is this wrong that I am more aesthetically attracted to someone than personally? (At first anyway) I feel terrible sometimes, because I know that looks aren't everything, and that they are only temporary, but I can't help it.

    I've always found Asian guys (mostly Japanese and Korean. But ethnicity's as well) really attractive. Sexy, handsome, cute, and a bunch of other adjectives to describe them. For the longest time I was studying Japanese on and off, I really enjoy the culture, but my initial reason to study it was gone. At the time, it was to watch anime without subtitles. However, as I got older, I grew out of anime and I was drawn towards Kdrama. I am aware that they aren't similar (not usually) I deeply respect Korean culture, even more now that I have been to Japan and seen the Asian culture. (I really loved it there. But it still didn't expand my passion to learn Japanese anymore.) So I am now trying Korean, so far I am having a blast. But I am wondering, is my purpose of learning Korean even... I dunno... healthy? I mean- I love the culture (as I previously stated) and I am fond of learning more and more (now that I decided I want to study abroad there) So once again, I'll repeat my question: Is it wrong that I am learning Korean so I can date Korean men? Or is this considered racist and not a "right" reason to peruse this language (I'm still gonna learn it though. I wanna be fluent now. haha)

    Okay so I just started learning Korean 3 days ago. Prior to that, I have been learning Japanese for 6 years. But my Japanese level was still at a beginners level. I self teach. I am teaching myself hangul right now. So here are my questions: 1) What are some good Korean Language textbooks? Preferably for absolute beginners? 2) How should I study Korean? Like what steps should I do to learn it? For example: Hangul, vocab, grammar, etc. 3) Is Korean similar to Japanese? In a sense that when you say a word, sometimes some of the words are dropped? ^) What I mean by that is, I noticed when people say annyeonghaseyo, they don't really pronounce the 'g' in it. Similar when in Japanese, the 'u' is silence in 'desu' or, suki. 'sski'. That's it for questions. Thank you so much!
