A couple of years ago I went to a Halloween costume party, where I became acquainted with a somewhat creepy 40-ish gaijin guy from Canada. He was tall and well-dressed and seemed nice enough, but I didn’t like him. What creeped me out most was that he kept coming up and patting my bunny ears and calling me a “cute little girl!” I didn’t like that at all.
What I also didn’t like was that he was rumoured to be dating teenagers, but I figured it was none of my business. Gaijin males live by different moral standards here in Japan, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. What’s it to me?
Anyway, I forgot all about him until the other day, when I met his latest girlfriend by chance at JJs (she’s really sweet btw, 24 and looks 10 years younger!), and discovered that he has moved in with her and her 4-year-old daughter. She really loves him – he treats her so much nicer than any Japanese man ever would – and has high hopes of marrying and living happily ever after. I have no idea what his plans are, but I must say that hearing stuff like this makes me realise that Japan is a pervert’s paradise all right!
(Also, it makes me realise that some women are really stupid.)
