I've noticed something since I've been in the US.
I feel like an attractive woman when I'm out in public.
In Japan, the only time that men are looking at me, I know it's because I am an oddity. I am a gaijin* in a country of Japanese. I'm a square block that doesn't fit in the hole.
On one hand, it is nice to feel attractive again, but on the other hand, I feel threatened. This is a generalization, but Japanese men are the most non-aggressive men I have ever been around. In the US, men look at you. Men flirt. And you know what? It freaks me out!
Thank God I've got Stan, so I can just ignore the rest!
*gaijin means foreigner, or outsider.
