彼氏に知られたくないことトップ10

Completely random but interviewing 250 girls in Shibuya, the Rank Kingdom TV program said these were the top 10 things they didn’t want their boyfriends to know.

10. Birthplace
9. How stupid I really am? (like how bad I failed that test)
8. Sleeping habits (like drooling or snoring)
7. Previous lovers
6. Actual height
5. Face without makeup
4. Actual waist size
3. Diary
2. Cell phone e-mail contents
1. Actual weight

I know most people all worry about silly things but I didn’t get some those.  #10 Why would anyone care if people knew where they were from?  #7, why would I care if you knew who my previous girlfriends were? I can only imagine 2 things (1) they are friends or (2) you did something really kinky you are embarrassed about. #6, why do I care how tall I am, especially as a women? I know Japanese women are generally pretty short but isn’t that part of what makes them cute? I’m also not sure why #5, waist size and #1 weight, are separated. It’s seems like they are related and it also seems like as if I was worry about that I’d be worried that my lover thought I was too fat, not that they knew some specific measurement. I wonder if there are culture issues I’m not aware of that make those important.

    I think putting numbers on weight, waist size, etc. allows them to be compared much easier to the “standard” weight/waist size/etc.  Like if you previously thought your girlfriend was pretty skinny, then you find out her real waist size is X numbers bigger than the “standard,” you’d feel maybe a bit put off.  (not that this applies me, I’m talking in general)

    numbers game

    I agree to a point with wulong.

    Like sports stats, there are guys who remember model stats. Its weird. Me, I’m for personality. But also for money. If she has personality, great. If she has money to burn, even better but only frosting.

    Does she have shape? Yeah, I admit I will look. But if the smile is disingenuious, I will know it in a second and will be turned off. Will she use money to establish the terms of the relationship? No can do, honey. If she has the right attitude and a sugar daddy to provide for both of us,and he’s cool about it, then that is what I like.

    Otherwise, the guys who look at the numbers are looking for Ms Perfect in their mind, they will pay for what they want instead of an honest business negotiation which is what a relationship is.

    BTW: I’m not saying relationships are commercial. I’m saying there is a quid pro quo that is igrnored by guys who only want the model types. For them, its like shopping. That’s inhumane.

    hmm …

    Maybe this is why some of the married folks end up sleeping apart. They get married, the truth is revealed, they both enter a deep state of shock/depression, and there you have it …

    just fyi, the program’s host did mention that generally guys could care less about this stuff in relation to their girlfiriends.

    the only thing i can think of with regard to birthplace is that i think there’s still some cultural stygma applied to certain parts of the country… (i.e. if she’s a “country girl” or a “city girl”) and apparently there is some prestige applied to having been born in other places.

    for me, i don’t need to have numbers tell me if my girlfriend is too fat or too skinny for my liking… and really it’s not about that for me anyways.

    actual weight? who gives a crap? that’ll change at a moment’s notice anyways.

    height doesn’t matter either… i don’t walk around with a “you must be at least this tall to ride this ride” sign.

    I think there’s still a certain cultural thing where people like to conveniently ignore the fact that their SO has had partners in the past (and possibly currently as well) and think that they’re prestine (possibly virgins) just for them… knowing previous lovers may disrupt that. or more likely admitting that there were previous lovers might shatter the illusion.

    sleeping habits? uhm, hi, gonna find out sooner or later. (same with how stupid they are)

    cell phone email (any email for that matter) i can understand… not that I specifically have anything to hide, but what’s in my email is nobody’s business but mine… and my attitude is: if you (as my SO or whatever) go snooping thru my email, you deserve everything you get as a result of it. I won’t willingly show my email contents as I believe in a certain amount of personal privacy… likewise, however, I won’t ask or pry into the contents of my SO’s email either.

    I feel like I’ve been ranting, sorry.

    Sex

    Many of my Japanese friends tells me that majotiry of Japanese women are just embaressed about talking aboub their past flames to their boyfriends, because they seem to think that it will hold a negative connotation about their past.

    However, like most American girls, Japanese girls openly talk about their sex lives (both current and past) amoungst their female friends.

    I guess it’s kinda like how most guys don’t like to talk about their sexual experience with other girls but will openly talk about it to their guy friends.

    But if you think thats weird, you should take a look at Korea where the society is more consevative compared to Japan. In Koera being a virgin at marriage is a big thing, and a must. Now, most women that get married are’nt even remotely virgins, but they will claim that they are, because otherwise it is very diffcult to get married. Having lived in Korea for 5 years, I know for a fact that Koreans love sex as mush as the rest of the world, but Korean women won’t admit to that.

    Those Shibuya girls…

    Well, you gotta take it into an account where they did the survey.  I’m sorry, but the crowd in general in Shibuya seems a bit air-headed, no offense.

    Burakumin

    >>#10 Why would anyone care if people knew where they were from?

    Perhaps they are descended from Burakumin, the outcasts of Japan? Or even worse, have Korean blood.

    Shibuya air-heads

    Oh darn! I hang out in Shibuya pretty often, does that mean I’m an air head?

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!1111

  • thatgirl
    It probably means

    that you have seen me being another air-head in Shibuya, dancing my ass off.

    Just some input.  You are so judged in Japan by where you are born!  It’s a status thing.  If you are born in a good area, then you must be rich, smart and good enough to hang out with.  If you are born in an area considered “bad”, you must have some rap sheet and low income for the rest of your lives.  For instance, if you were born in an area where a lot of Japanese Indians are, they’ll know to be racist against you.  The Japanese companies, upon whether to hire you will look at where you are born, where you graduated, rather than the ability you possess.  You also need to include a photo of yourself.  They like to especially utilize this when hiring girls, the cuter the better, since they’ll marry someone in the company and leave anyway.  A lot of older folks dont do much work during the day, they dont need to because they were able to kiss butt to the right people and go up the ranks, and then when the company downsizes and they lose their jobs, they cannot get another job at a company because they dont have any skills.  Sad.
