Ok, i don't see a thread on here, and i think i've been here awhile to start a thread on LOVE, and i hope this one takes off in posts, as people open up on their personal story, because it all matters to our community. it is fun to fantasize about your favorite AKB48 girl, i sure do, how many times have i mentioned my love for Mariko...lol but in reality, inregards to love, it has been awhile, a long long while. 2005 was a rough year, and '06 was a rebuilding year for me, job-career, health, family/friends. I think i am still a work in progress, and like most 35 year olds, i am not where i am....yet? anyhow, it's been 2 years since my breakup with my ex-gf, so, interms of relationships, it's been dry. I tried online dating, and quit some online dating websites after 3 months or so, and recently joined on another one. Since i want a japanese(preferably), i thought i try an online dating website pertaining to Japanese girls, it's been slow, but i thought i would try atleast. I am not the shy type, but once you are in the workforce, like i am, and beyond school, it becomes more challenging to find that special someone. what's your story?
