THE
LOOKING FOR A JAPANESE GIRLFRIEND SHIRT FORUM

PLM just got a hit for the search "looking for a japanese girlfriend shirt forum." I'd mentioned the Looking for a Japanese Girlfriend t-shirts in a post sometime ago simply as a cultural oddity; we didn't need them in my day.

Frankly, as a man of some experience in this lovely country I can way understand why Japanese girls get their own "Wanted" t-shirt nowadays, in the frothy international market that neocourting has become; but of the guys who wear such shirts, I ask: you need a t-shirt for this? Even worse, you need a Looking for a Japanese Girlfriend T-shirt Forum? Aren't you busy with your girlfriends?

What's happened to men in the last 20 years? Step out of the country for just a couple of decades... It was all much simpler back when we simply approached beautiful Japanese women in Japan and in the timeless way gave them our best lines, in Japanese. Somehow, reliance on a foreign language t-shirt doesn't bring out the fortitude in a courting man...

But soon, all that stuff may not matter anymore; I just read that "People are going to be having sex with robots within five years." I suppose not long after that we'll see human guys wearing Looking for an Android Girlfriend t-shirts...

And 25 years ago I read that robot housekeepers would be on the market in the next two years and would cost under $1,000. And where, I ask, is mine?

Actually the shirt will probably say "Looking for computer/robot repair person."

"our best lines, in Japanese".

Brings back memories of, "Rui no nai utsukushii desu". In the early 90s half the foreign population of Hiroshima was using this with varying degrees of success.
