Was not a good feeling to say the least. And the dude she is getting with is ten years older, she is 24. The reason being is that he has a good job and is Japanese. Its sort of one of those things you get here but it doesn't stop it from sucking.
Edit; I feel that I should add a point here. This isn't every girl in Japan. Its just one of those things that happens where some people are looking for more stability and what they know. I'm worried I came across badly there. It was just born out of this big frustration that this wasn't the first time it has happened to me, or some of my friends. I get where she is coming from but it just hurts. So I'm sorry if I sounded like a nob.
