So this “kousai zero nichikon” is not a complete stranger to Japanese people.
That’s what I told our family friend who was concerned that I wasn’t dating at the age of 26. It’s just that I found the whole dating scene rather depressing.
, young Japanese men and women are “giving up dating and marrying friends.” Because of the country’s low birth rates, it looks like the young Japanese population has just settled to tie the knot with their lifelong friends.
Japan has one of the lowest birth rates in the world with only 8.4 children born for every 1,000 inhabitants which has lasted for the last five years.
To make his family give up, he introduces a woman, Joo Jang Mi, to them that they would never accept.
I guess that’s why I told my wife I loved her on our second date. But it wasn’t that she wasn’t giving me love, it just seemed to come at different times. I don’t think I noticed this consciously for a while. And after each time, there would be this look she would give me. It wasn’t something I could force, just something that would come about as a result of my giving. And how much I’m sure those messages are bouncing around in other people’s heads as well. Living Disney movies in our minds, and tragedies in our lives.
