It's very difficult for me to have close Japanese female friends.
I have the feeling that they often regard me as a strange person, or
in much terser expression, "improper". On the other hand, non-Japanese
ladies tend to treat me as an ordinary person.
However, very often I'm attracted by Japanese women. I only wish they'd
give away their absurdly high standards for their mates.
