Adult dating progression
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.
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.
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.
This isn’t a problem for Japanese men who usually will arrange a date at a very cheap cafe and still expect me to pay my share!Unfortunately it doesn’t always work out as the boy wasn’t interested in me.If you confess and she/he says yes, you two could be considered a couple.Unlike Japan, California is a true melting pot of cultures but since I had so little dating experience back home, I was nervous about getting into the dating scene in America.Mostly because I had no idea how the American dating culture worked.
