Ah, (light dawns)
What's odd to me too is that they never talk about boys.
Actually, they have mentioned the idea of boyfriends... but as they go to an all-girls school, have club duties, massive amounts of homework, etc --- there's hardly any chance to even be somewhere one might meet a boy. College might open up opportunities.. but again, if they all end up at the all-girl's university that Mugi has mentioned, that's put any romance off again no doubt. Many Japanese simply resort to modern variations on matchmaking/eHarmony/etc to actually meet people if they are career oriented.

They're often pining/disillusioned because someone attractive and mature like Sawako can't even seem to find a boyfriend... but as we also know, Sawako has other issues that may steer many guys away
