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.
Sure some may work out, hit the weights and look strong but they lament that women do judge a book by its cover.

Everyone seems to celebrate Independence Day, these days.
On the back of every pub toilet door (and believe me, I spend a lot of time in pub toilets) there seems to be a flyer for their 4th of July piss-up.
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.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. And now with the proliferation of online dating apps and websites, it can be even more daunting. is difficult enough because of cultural and stereotypical challenges.Hollywood would have us believe that they are romantic, misunderstood and - even if we leave them for another man - likely to move to Tennessee and build us a house on a lake with blue shutters and await our return.
