is a 'love confession' a real cultural thing in japan or is it some awkwardly translated bullshit in anime
>>
>>120925069
It's a real thing almost everywhere.
>>
I'd like to preface this by saying I know this term gets overused, and incorrectly, but it genuinely applies here.

Are you fucking autistic? How do you not understand what a love confession is?
>>
>>120925069
Faye a dirty gypsy whore with more debt then Greece.
>>
>>120925127
He has probably never been confessed to before.
>>
>>120925069
it's better than the standard "you must spend X amount of money before she sleeps with you and Y amount of money if you want her to say I love you"
>>
>>120925184
Neither have I, but jesus. Is the concept of telling someone you like them that fucking obscure?
>>
>>120925190
It's more like spend X amount of money and say "I love you" Y amount of times" before she sleeps with you.
>>
I think anime fucked me up. this "hang out with a girl as you gradually raise your romance points until you can confess dramatically" or "approach random girl and confess your love" doesn't work at all in america. it's an actual cultural thing in Japan, but nobody over here is used to it, so it will ALWAYS come off as creepy and weird.

I don't even know how you're supposed to ask a girl out, maybe I would if I had watched western media instead of getting all my cultural information from Japan.
>>
>>120925127
I think he's referring to when two people who barely know each other make some kind of confession. Like a high school girl coming out and saying "I love you" to a guy they hardly know
>>
>>120925127
There is no such thing in my land of Islam. In Islam, women are required to go through an elaborate process of matchmaking.

When has confessing love not been a big thing? Are you retarded?
>>
>>120925220
Maybe love is an old concept these days. More so on the way of a quick fuck behind the bike sheds or three man hot dogging at an underage party. Use your imagination.
>>
>>120925225
American 3Ds are pretty disgusting though in comparison to the world.
>>
>>120925069
What would people normally do when they love someone who doesn't show signs of loving them back?

The moment they tell them: "I love you" it's a love confession.
>>
You dumb sperglords

Its anime bullshit because nobody uses the fucking verb confess. You're not before a court
>>
>>120925223
I can't even imagine an american relationship beginning with one person telling the other "I love you"
it'd feel like a movie rolling the credits in the first scene
>>
>>120925240
Sounds boring and overly complicated.
>>
>>120925319
Its not a confession you fucking spastic
>>
>>120925225
>approach random girl and confess your love
This is what I never understood. How is that creepy? In western media, girls do that all the time, but it's creepy whenever a guy has a secret crush and decides to confess out of nowhere. How fucking weird.
>>
>>120925229
For some reason I always see "suki" being translated as "love" when there's a confession. Wouldn't that just be "like" instead?
>>
I suppose it's romantic though.

In the west, by the time someone tells you they love you, you probably already knew months ago.
>>
>>120925271
I think he means the out of nowhere bullshit only seen in anime, and the term "love confession."

Well no I take that back, it's common in middle school, but even then we only called it "X told Y he liked her."
>>
>>120925225
>I don't even know how you're supposed to ask a girl out
"Do you want to go on a date?"
"Would you join me for a romantic evening?"

Here are two easy ones to start. Customize as necessary.
>>
>>120925370
It's creepy if the girl doesn't like the guy/he's ugly.
If she likes him/he's hot, it's romantic.
>>
>>120925378
it's the difference between like and like-like.
>>
>>120925127
>>120925120
I need to be more specific.
>infatuation
>10ft apart
>stammering
>on the school roof


why is the confession moment built up? i realise this is for dramatic effect in anime, but why has this become a universal trope?
why do characters say
>at least you have been confessed to!
and not >at least x said they liked you
>>
>>120925369
>confession
>the act of telling people something that makes you embarrassed, ashamed, etc.
If saying it aloud makes you embarrassed, it's a confession.
>>
>>120925409
"You wanna hang out sometime?"
That one usually works if you're 6/10 or higher.

Do some high schoolers confess with a love letter?
>>
>>120925512
>"You wanna hang out sometime?"
That line is how you construct your own friendzone. If you want a relationship to be romantic, it's best not to be clear.
>>
>>120925069
>Not confessing your love in the toilets of your local nightclub
Get with the times.

>>120925621

How did I even?

>>
>>120925669
yeah, you weren't very clear.

>>120925394
yeah the "love letters from girls you haven't even met yet" kind of bullshit I suppose OP means that.

OP here. so i had a look at the translation for 'confession' in japanese. seems more associated with expression/declaration, whereas its connotations in the west are guilt/religion/crime.

they should call it 'love declaration'. someone change every sub to 'love declaration'. thank you.
>>
>>120925652
"Y'know, I'm just sayin, like, you and me, we get along real good n' shit. I think we should totally like, y'know, like go out sometime y'know. I mean yeah."
Romantic as fuck.

holy shit you guys really are retarded. old married man here, dont fucking ever confess like that

>ask girl on date

there. youre done. she will take over from there

>A confession is a statement made by a person or a group of person acknowledging some personal fact that the person (or the group) would ostensibly prefer to keep hidden.
Most people never tell the target of their affections that they love them. It takes courage and they risk screwing with a pre-established relationship or generally having their feelings hurt. I don't see why it wouldn't apply.
>>
>>120925944
cool story gramps

So that's what you call marrying off your twelve years old sisters to grown men ?
And don't you dare tell me "but we don't all do this", I know that, but some of you do.
>>
>>120925953
>pre-established relationship
yeah it would really suck to blush from embarrassment rather than horniness when the crush you're too retarded to talk to walks by.

google was more useful than you. /a/'s rules really do apply.
>>
>>120926185
I meant a lot of times the characters already know each other or are friends.
>>
>>120926252
>/a/'s rules really do apply
What rules ?

>>120926301
Except for the throaway character meant to trigger the love interest/MC's jealousy. More often than not they just watched the object of their affections from afar, then they gather enough courage to confess, get rejected, and are never seen again.
Poor girl/boy.

'you can google that shit' usually, instead of asking for recommendations.

In Argentina you just ask someone out. There is no protocolar love confession thing.
Now that I think about it, it's actually pretty weird if someone out of the blue said "I love you, lets be a couple".
>>
>>120926252
>>
>>120926566
But that's not a rule so much as common sense.

Man, I don't even know what to say. Moonbaby here, and this is definitely not par for the course. It probably happens more than here because of the way anime has built up the idea of kouhaku, but this is not everyone's reality by any means.

Some of the other stuff happens, though, like getting set up by your friends, particularly where everyone goes out together then conspires to leave you two alone for a bit. And sometimes you get asked out by note/letter, but that's kind of lame and immature, I think.
>>
It's a Japanese take on a western tradition of men asking women out. And anime has a whole bunch of cliches and conventions about how it is done.
>>
>>120925512
>>120925409
It really is that simple, isn't it? I should stop being a sperg and just give it a shot
But I probably won't
>>
>>120927482
I think it's more like a dramatic cliche that doesn't actually happen that often.

How many of you have run to the airport to catch the girl of your dreams before she flew away forever? Or had your plain next door neighbour dress up like a princess to finally admit she liked you at the homecoming dance? But that happens all the time in western romances.
>>
You guys don't understand. The confession is different than simply saying "I like you, let's go out on dates," it's basically saying "I love you and want to form a serious relationship with you".

Japanese people aren't robots, they flirt and hang out with girls all the time. They have playboys and sluts too, who flit from guy to guy or girl to girl without any attachments.

The confession is something that signifies a desire for a serious committed relationship. It's very embarrassing for a young person because of the gravity of it. It's basically the next thing down from asking a girl to marry you.

I went to South-East Asia this one time.

I was drinking in a bar with my buddy when a set of twins came up to me and started hitting on me. Their father then showed up 5 minutes later (the bar owner) and started telling me what wonderful girls they would make great wives.

It was a weird experience. Gotta love being White sometimes though.

>>120927570
Wow so lol bro I totally know that feel XDddd
OMG no gf right guys? I remember this one time I was watching anime and then there was a scene where they confessed and I was like LOL forever alone

Get this blogshit thread out of here.

It was a scam. They would have divorced you for all your shit and you'd be lucky to not have your throat cut afterwards.

>>120927482
>>120927648
thank you. but does >>120927437 slightly contradict >>120927648?

why do girls do it more than guys in anime?
>>
>>120927893

Obviously. But it was a fun situation to be in during the moment.

I just said I gay and rubbed my buddies nipple and they left in a hurry. In retrospect, could have been a bad move to make in a Muslim country, but I got away with it.
