Even though it had been my dream to live in America, I was very excited but nervous at the same time.
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.
Another thing that I noticed was that American men tend to pay for dates but Japanese men usually don’t.

Whether a sign of creeping cultural imperialism or just an excuse to get bladdered on Bud Light and eat undercooked hotdogs, I'm unsure.
However, it's made me think about the differences between us and our pals across the pond.
If you confess and she/he says yes, you two could be considered a couple.
In America, it really depends on the person but I have never experienced this type of initiation.
