    I know some big age-gap relationships (10+ years) can work and are happy and healthy but they shouldn't (no one should, but especially not "influencers") promote them as something normal or desirable. The vast majority of age-gap relationships do not work for multiple reasons: different life phases and financial situations, power imbalance, different energy levels, lack of things in common and different cultural references from growing up in different times, incompatible groups of friends, etc, not to mention the most obvious which is the fact that the younger person will have to give away part of their youth/energy to take care of the elder partner as they retire and become dependent. And lastly, the fact that these relationships are always doomed to be shorter from the beginning.
    So, yeah, some age-gap relationships are happy, but people shouldn't downplay the multiple issues and downsides. There's a reason why most relationships are between people from the same generations.

    I agree with this. I actually think she's really pretty in a doll-like way. Her face is unique and I'm tired of seeing faces with the same lips and noses so I hope she doesn't feel the pressure to "fit in" and get some surgery or whatever -- then she'd just become boring and uninteresting.
    I also love the short hair on her.

    99% sure this is her trying to make Hiro jealous or something like that. Her posts on social media are the kind of thing that a 13-14 year old girl would post, not someone almost 10 years older. Anyone can see their relationship isn't genuine. Or maybe she's hyping it to convince herself she likes him. But I'd still say it's mostly for Hiro.

    At this point, I refuse to believe Kenna isn't a narcissistic sociopath. I've never seen someone so out of touch. She shouldn't be allowed on social media, the shit she says is dangerous.

    Yikes! That's got to sting at least a little bit... Imagine dating someone who readily claims he doesn't find real women sexy... I know he's trying to be funny (I mean, he interviewed his "favourite" porn star a while ago), but I wonder how Aki feels. Even if it's a joke, he should at least be a bit more considerate towards his own girlfriend publicly because a lot of people don't get that kind of humour.

    Or maybe just venting. I used to go through a lot of phases like that when I was in university, I think that's pretty normal at her age, especially considering she's financially independent and going to university is pretty taxing.

    Ugh, Eileen is a despicable person, but can we please stop criticizing her looks/weight? That's just stooping down to her level. This is starting to feel a bit too much like high school bullying at this point.

    Yep. Because it's the real Kenna in that video. The unfiltered Kenna whith darker skin, large nose, and clown makeup. Unless she can meticulously control (filter, edit) the way she looks, she will pretend any other versions of her don't exist.
    Anyway, that video is awesome for that reason alone and that's why we can't let it die.

    Yep it's annoying. One of the reasons why I stopped following Kelly. In some cases, it might have to do with them being more reserved and quiet (like Jun), but it still rubs me the wrong way sometimes because they just look like they don't want to be there. I liked Texan in Tokyo because even though Grace was clearly the "show runner", at the same time Ryosuke had his own space to shine and you could see they really respected and loved each other. But overall I really appreciate youtubers like Osharegirl because they really respect their SO's wish for privacy and don't cash on the "interracial relationship" factor by using their SO's as props. It just feels more genuine to me and a lot less like yellow fever. But this is already off-topic, so I apologize.

    The way you write, and particularly this sentence alone really makes me think you're either Brazilian or at least speak portuguese (com 16 anos = with 16).

    No clue, but Chris/Abroad in Japan's videos are back to being good since he left TC. It was really a creativity / energy drain for some youtubers.

    I don't find that weird at all. I speak a few languages and in all of them (except for my mother tongue, naturally) I feel a lot more comfortable writing than speaking the language. Writing also allows me to be a lot more careful and google certain words or expressions I'm not so sure about, and I can take as long as I want, while speaking is more about speed and making myself understood rather than anything else.
    This kind of message in particular is the kind of thing you take some time to sort out your thoughts.

    She has a life-long gap in her employment history, to be honest.
