Over half of women in their twenties and thirties say that they do not have a boyfriend. Nowadays, women are faced with issues such as men, work, sex, family, etc. That is an ice age of love. The Reason I Can't Find My Love highlights the romances of three different women.

Emi is a lighting technician in a lighting company. Because she is always working with men, she comes to behave like a boy. She is not interested in fashion or other things that girls usually care about. She does not fall in love with someone because she thinks love is tiresome. But she actually still loves her ex-boyfriend who is her colleague in the same company.

Mako is an earnest office worker. She is rather clumsy and afraid of falling in love with someone. She didn't have sex with any boy before she fell in love with one colleague.

Saki is a beautiful and prideful girl. She hopes to be a journalist but she does not realize her dream. So she has to be a hostess in a bar to help support her family. She tells her family members that she was working in a large publisher house and earned a lot of money every month. She has met a kind and helpful man who is married and fallen in love with him.
