Right off the top, you mentioned that you and he have agreed to be exclusive.
It’s reasonable to interpret that as meaning you’ve agreed to not date anyone or sleep with anyone else, but I want to ask: when you agreed to be exclusive, how did this come about?
As a whole, Japanese society stresses the image of something as of utmost importance.
However, I’ve seen way too many men criticize women as a whole but then start praising Eastern Asian women.
Some of these countries include Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, etc.
I’ve also had conversations with Japanese men as well that were married or dating.
In Japan, there is a huge emphasis on avoiding shame.
Men automatically hate a handsome man, because we’re a competitive gender, and the good-looking guy has an advantage in the situation.
