Now, onto the subject:
In Japan, when is it appropriate for two people to refer to each other by given name without an attached title? I really, really don't want to keep on typing out -chan after -chan after -chan. And what do you do in Japan when you meet a person you're not familiar with but don't know their last name?
Thanks is very much appreciated.
EDIT: Meh, I guess I'll just drop the -chan (and the -kun also), even if I'm going to use the other suffixes. (occassionally)
