Hi Guys and Gals


Hi Guys and Gals

I could really do with some quick help here. I am an absolute beginer with Kanji and I have tried the Jim Breen dictionary thingy -but I am even more confussed now!!!
My new (ish) J- girlfriend talks to me on messenger a lot- but ever so often she goes into Kanji mode- and loses me completely! I would love to suppise her by knowing what she has said...

Does anyone know what the translations are for the following couple of conversational snippets...

Conversational Snippet 1:

もうっ!そうゆう日本語女の子に使うんでしょ!!!!!!!
どうせ ポールはどっかに行っちゃうんだ。誰かさんみたいに・・・

はぁ~あ・・・・・

ポールはきっと私の事好きじゃないと思う

はい

Conversational Snippet 2:

いつまでも側に居ようなんて
胸にしまうから
毎晩夢に見てる
何度も寂しさ覚えるたび 心は貴方を求めていたよ

Conversation Snippet 3:

そうゆう人いるいる!

いつまでも側に居ようなんて
胸にしまうから
毎晩夢に見てる
何度も寂しさ覚えるたび 心は貴方を求めていたよ


I know its a lot to ask... but I really have no further knowledge other than...

Domo Arigato Gozaimasu (But I'm learning ;)

Snippet 1 does not bode well for you.

Snippet 3 largely repeats Snippet 2, and looks to me like lyrics from a song. You'd have to ask one of the JPOP fans to be sure.

Does this shed any light on Snippet 1:
欲しい!欲しい!欲しい! ポールと結婚するんだから!(笑)o(><)o 一人でイギリスに行けるんだから(ノ><)ノ

(P.S. My name is Paul -I have been told this is 'Pole' or 'Poll' in Japanese- ha ha, and English I guess!!!)

My name is Paul. I have been told this is 'Pole' or 'Poll

I worked in a place with 3 Pauls. I was nick-named Long Paul by some of the females in the office, until the continuous laughing finally learned them.

Sounds like your gal is having a laugh to me.

She seems disgusted with the sort of Japanese you used. She thinks you'll just up and leave her like some unmaned person did. And she thinks you don't like her.

Is she a drama queen or something?

The poetic bits are somewhat more elevated if you'd like those done instead....Does she tend to be the sort that conceals her own feelings (in kanji) and then expects you to understand ? I think it's a national disorder. 😌

She's not really disgusted with the Japanese you used. She was kinda making you out to be a player and that you must talk to all the (Japanese) girls like that. ;)

Which is why I asked if she is a drama queen.....

Better to ask her about the problem directly (in a very yasahii way designed to get the most number of girls) :p

知り合いの男の子に好かれたいですか?!!!!!!!!
あなたの問題を私のせいにしないで。!!!!!!!!!! 

どうしてそんなことを言ったの>>> (そんな馬鹿な言葉を言わせたのはなんだったのでしょうか?!!!!) etc....:D
