2. The sad female character from her favorite TV drama finds the love of her life.
“I feel betrayed. I thought she was on my side,” commented one young Japanese woman. She felt a special connection with the character in the drama and she related to her TV life. Now the TV character has found a boyfriend and the story looks like it is going to end “happily ever after.” Even though she knows it’s fiction, she can’t help feeling like her best friend has betrayed her. That’s the perfect cue for you to come in and sweep her off her feet. Studying the storyline of a popular drama may work to your advantage when you’ve been unable to find a common topic to talk about with that special someone.
