or rather, a man’s reaction to a woman – is very tricky. i can actually say that i have had quite a few girlfriends and had a variety of experiences with them. i have fallen victim to the ego, lust, infatuation, guilt, jealously..

those are all obviously wrong reasons to be with a girl. my old landlord told me something that i thought was very compelling – he said the most important thing in dating a woman is attraction. raw attraction. i think that is the first step for a man. i knew i was attracted to Eriko the moment i was near her. it is a very deep attraction. her appearance, her personality, her culture, her family. very attractive to me.
