@sawa 1) I'll add what a flyjin is to my question - I assumed everyone knew what it meant. 2) I'm not aware of any commonly-accepted English-language antonyms of flyjin.

comment ホワイトデー: use ハッピー or おめでとう?
@Downvoter: I tried googling before asking my question, and got many hits for both forms, and didn't come across anything saying that people don't greet each other that way. Is there any other form of research I should have done before asking my question?
