In Japan, it's said that everyone has at least one moteki
during their lifetime. A moteki is some period in your life (ki) when you are particularly popular and attractive romantically and sexually to others (mote)
Now, I don't know if that's true. For one thing, I hear about moteki
most often when they're used as plot devices in popular manga. And if it is, I'm definitely still waiting on mine. That said, I have noticed that romantic attention tends to come in floods when you expect it. You spend your entire time hoping to catch some guy's attention, and the minute you stop caring? Bam
, there he is.
So maybe there is some truth to moteki
after all.What do you think? Was there ever a period in your life when you were showered with attention from potential romantic interests?
