We Love LA!

In the Japan Today forum, we hear from a Japanese male who moved to Los Angeles

I dislike that city…and from my experience and visiting other cities in the US…is the worst!

Orange County and places like Glendale, Pasadena, and Burbank are okay.  I can associate with those kind of people.

But other than that, LA people are crooked scums. They give you the run-arounds and are back-stabbers.

He thinks that romance is particularly tough in the big city.

LA is plain hell on earth. If you’re an Asian girl (the sellout type) …then you can find a nice lovely blondie to marry. But if you’re an Asian guy…hardly any AF or girls will even stare at you.

Hey, sure it’s tough for Asian males.   But to make you feel better, this morning in Starbucks, I couldn’t get that Korean-American girl in that UCLA t-shirt to smile back at me either! 

Here are some other websites definitely not associated with the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau.

I Hate L.A. Traffic  (via Tale of Two Cities)

LA County Murders  (via LA Observed)

Also, does anyone know what an AF is?  Asian Female?


  1. The Moviequill

    like most big cities, I just pull the cap down and walk with head hung low… coincidentally that article was written by Head Hung Lo

  2. Edgy Mama

    So, how did you end up in LA?

  3. Jack

    I love LA. I am that rare breed, a native who was born and bred here. This city just has so much going on. Far more than people give credit to.

  4. Leese

    Asian females are the sellout type? I had no idea. I don’t remember having that kind of experience back in my dating days…

    Oh wait. I’m not exactly Asian. Not exactly Pacific Islander either. I’m just “other.”

  5. Neil

    I think 3/4 of California is now “other.” I know plenty of people who don’t know what to write when the census asks what race they are.

  6. Leese

    I read this again…I see what this guy’s problem is.

    “…hardly anyone will even stare at me.”

    Maybe he should walk around naked. Don’t know if that will get him any dates but it would at least get people to stare at him.

  7. M.A.

    He must have been thinking that of that old stereotype “All American Girls are easy.” Is that it?

  8. Neil

    They aren’t?

  9. Aurorealis

    Wheeeeew! Nice to know that as a Pasadena girl I narrowly missed being labelled a crooked back-stabber. Oh, and I think that by “AF” he means he digs guys that shop at Abercrombie & Fitch, otherwise why would he say “or girls” afterward?
