“When Harry Met Sally” posed the age-old question, and seemed to answer it: No. This popular You Tube video posits largely the same premise – men will always want to sleep with their platonic girlfriends.
But if you’re lucky, you can fall in love with your best friend.
For some reason (maybe through the consumption of too many Hollywood movies) Japanese women think that foreign men are like that!
They’re not afraid of showing their feelings in public or telling their girls flat out how they feel about them. The extreme version of this is known as “gaijin hunter” and some will do everything for the sake of having one of those adorable “half”-kids (half Western, half Japanese) just to toss their foreign guy later on.
For some, romantic relationships are the most meaningful element of life, providing a source of deep fulfillment.
