Dating in Japan

Posted by Security Vault

As a ‘foreign woman’ I would not be interested in even talking to, never mind dating, a man who was interested in me solely as a ‘foreign woman’. Its because most men don’t actually want only sex. But as my experience shows, you can get a relationship much easier than sex. I have dated several women who wanted to give me a relationship but when it came to sex, they balked.

I have traveled extensively throughout Korea, Japan, and more recently China. I’ve also been to Philippine, Brunei,Singapore, and Bhutan. I have heard of this pecking order White man preference thing constantly all be it mostly from White men. I have never ever experienced any difficulty ever meeting and dating women in these countries. I have never ever experience meeting and dating women in New York, L.A. Chicago, D C, Atlanta, nor Bismark North Dakota. If you are the type of man that women are attracted to.

  • Being ‘mature’ in Japan can be seen as ‘childish’ elsewhere and vice versa.
  • The days of samurai, when marriages for Asian men and wives were chosen with the approval of clan leaders, are long gone.
  • In Japan there are large communities of Nigerians, Latinos, Chinese, etc and a lot of those people might also speak English as well.
  • During Valentine’s, the woman takes that particular day to express their affection for their partner.

By that point, I was well-rehearsed and exhausted, rendered frank and naked by erosive men, and their preconceived notions of me.

Initially, Hiro did not believe me. “But Tokyo is full of foreigners,” he protested, defensive. As I continued to meet men off Tinder–a handful every couple of weeks–my ability to narrate myself in Japanese improved vastly. I grew confident in my capacity to avoid misunderstandings based in matters of language. Yet, I still found myself ensnared by stereotypes and relentless exoticization.

Given the language barrier, this is not always easy. But for a persistent foreigner and a purposeful Asian, there are no impossible things. All obstacles can be overcome if both parties are interested. After meeting a Asian boy or girl, you need to understand that communication in the future should involve building relationships that lead to marriage. The Japanese do not often aim to spray on unnecessary and uninteresting communication, which is not aimed at building a serious relationship. Getting to know your parents is a serious step that you take to make sure of your choice. It is worth the effort to please the family, which will agree on your further communication and marriage.

Love is an unspoken understanding

‘If you are a western girl living in Japan and interested in dating a Japanese guy, my advice would be GENTLY make the first move. Don’t be overly assertive’, writes a 25-year-old American girl who has been married to a Japanese man for five years. A guy says that it’s very hard for him to have good relationships with Japanese women.

She is getting what she believes is hard to get from Japanese guys from her Mexican boyfriend. Contrary to what people believe, Japanese people do express their feelings. This inexpressiveness can be seen as ‘cold’ in other countries but in Japanese context where indirectness is the norm, it’s not necessarily a negative trait.

Some girls seem to figure out Japanese guys well.

Anything relevant to living or working in Japan such as lifestyle, food, style, environment, education, technology, housing, work, immigration, sport etc. This is a late reply but I don’t agree with you for a few basic reason.
