However, be warned: If you want to read about bragging stories of all those Western guys who get laid a hundred times per day, then you came to the wrong place. There are tons of blog posts like that out there. You might ask yourself why is that? A lot of Japanese women want a guy that tells them several times a day how much he loves them. For some reason maybe through the consumption of too many Hollywood movies Japanese women think that foreign men are like that! Japanese men seem to expect certain things from a woman. Things that they fear a foreign woman would not agree to do e.
What seems to be missing is a true connection and intimacy.
So I guess the lesson is not to settle in life. By the way, I enjoy reading your insightful postings. At least I hope the humor is intentional. I look forward to reading more! Talking about relationships, no matter if cross-cultural or not, is always complicated as each is very unique and has its own story.
So the mistakes are not intentional, but the humor is! Whoa, back up. Say what? Lots of foreign guys end up with really average and below average Japanese women after being in the bars every night of the week looking.
Guys with skills will do better elsewhere. The men who stay all end up getting married, right?
The reality is, hooking up with Japanese chicks is a ton of work. Can you do it if you stay out late every night? But you can do that anywhere. What you said makes perfect sense to me. If you are a western guy with decent social skills, you might do better elsewhere.
5 Best Places to Take a Date in Tokyo
Having said this, if you are willing to put effort into understanding the culture, nothing will stop you from dating Japanese girls. When I first came to Japan I thought the western men had it easy, too. I thought: man, they could just sit on a park bench and after 5 minutes-bam!
Have flocks of women come to them without lifting a finger! In contrast, western women have to put in a ton of effort just to get a guy to respond back to a text message. But then, after living in Japan and later China for a long time, I started to spend more time with your average Japanese woman at the office. I also started to see what kind of Japanese women my western-man-friends were typically dating. At first, I was jealous because Japanese women are nice, polite, absolutely adorable-basically, something I could not compete with.
I realized that like in most countries, probably finding a decent Japanese woman is hard.
Aug 29, I think its a big challenge for Asian men to make that confident approach hopefully that barrier can be tackled. Not sure what it would be like for men dating women in Japan.

Someone who is not only cute, but honest and interesting and looking for companionship is especially hard to find in Japan. While it may be nice to get some girls at the bar, I think western men must find it hard to find a Japanese woman that they would actually want to have a long-term relationship with unless all they cared about was having a chick that looks hot. As for us women: It sucks that we have to put in way more effort than we should to get a man. In the USA, I walk into a bar and usually by the end of the night I guarantee a few guys will approach me.
In Japan, this hardly ever happens. But who knows, maybe all that hard work and effort into getting a man helps us get a higher quality partner in the long run. But to be honest, I thought a majority of Japanese men were quite strange so I eventually gave up on trying to find a Japanese boyfriend.
And I have to disagree with foreign women speaking better Japanese than men. I also want to say that I love the photos on your website! Keep up the good work :. Hello Mary! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! Being so fake, putting tons of make-up in their faces and speaking like cute little anime characters is certainly not something most sane guys are looking for.
B-b-b-but men should approach me! Japanese girls are so boring and uninteresting! Cry me a river sweet-heart. I thought I had it easy in America, but when I went to Japan just for a week it was like playing life on beginner mode. I consider myself a reasonably attractive guy fit, confident, etc. Women approach me in bars, come up to me to dance at clubs, and I do well for myself on Okcupid and Tinder.
But nothing prepared me for how overtly forward Japanese women can be with their attraction. Being groped at clubs, girls giggling around me, and being eye fucked like no tomorrow on the train. I actually met a beautiful Japanese girl in Shibuya. We spent most of the week together before I left. She has already spent some time with me in America.
You know what? But what she lacks in that department, she makes up for being a surprisingly kind and gentle person. She absolutely loves animals and she is an extremely affectionate person.

Before we start talking about "Dating in Japan" one thing should be crystal clear: 1. Dating is not the same for foreign women and men! If you've ever been to Japan you might have noticed that there's a tremendous number of (often not so handsome) foreign guys walking hand-in-hand with Japanese women.
One ct of this article that has been counterintuitive to my experience dating a Japanese girl is the concept of an allowance. When I was in Japan, this girl paid for all my meals, despite offering to pay for the meal, or at least my own.
1. The Easiest Place to Meet Friendly Japanese (Girls)
She refused. She never tries to tell me how to spend my money and when she came to America to visit she literally gave me all her money to hold on to for her. She always tries to carry my belongings.
If I have a bag with me, she absolutely has to carry it for me and refuses to listen to my objections.
She always tries to clean my room and I have to tell her not to. First world problems.
I actually have some Japanese friends through work that grew up in Japan. I can understand the appeal Japan has for foreign men. The women in Japan are incredibly thin and take awesome care of themselves. Well, it pays off. Yeah, no thanks.

According to my Japanese friends in America, there is virtually no hook-up culture in Japan. See that attractive girl walking down the street in New York City? It is definitely interesting to read your point of view. I think that a lot of the stereotypes are just that, and may not reflect as much reality as we perceive. Oh, it certainly does not, but you would have to write a whole book about it if you want to cover it all!
I totally agree. After all each one is unqiue. Ken Seeroi: I seriously doubt that you will find a really interesting girl in a bar.
These are found by accident, at work, in a university, etc. French, Spanish and Italian men behave quite differently from Northern Europeans. They are also very different from Americans. I would assume South Americans are similar to southern Europeans, being influenced by Hispanic culture.
European women are not so aggressive as Americans. I could go on. Simone, I agree with you. This was my long winded way of saying that those different people will have a different experience in Japan. I work with some guys who have been in Japan as long as me, or who have been married around the same time, and their Japanese is basic at best. There are a lot of people like that everywhere it seems.
Do they like feeling helpless? What happens if they lose their partner or get divorced? Here again you cannot generalize! I have traveled in Japan several times with a British company, InsideJapan Tours, and all the guides were British or Americans and fluent in Japanese [plus they read and wrote it].
That was true also of their one French guide [who was married to a Japanese woman met abroad]. I stayed in Singapore for 9 years and dating there was impossible. First of all the quality of men in general and secondly, if you went out with your friends they always try to compare themselves to the Angmo. It was amusing with all the stereo type opinions. My female colleagues at work always said they are not allowed to date a foreigner but they always dated foreigner or try to date foreigners.
They would be someone special. Japanese men in comparasing to the Singapore guys are really refreshing and they amuse me with they kind behavior and politeness. The dress code is much better than the flip flop, short wearing Ah Bengs in Singapore yak. My girl friend biggest worry was that sex will be bad because of the size. What Western girls have to worry about Japanese man is that after kids there is no more sex. At least for a lot of couples.
I heard it so often. They would be perfect Christians. This is in later years maybe a problem. I know a few intercultural marriages where they in later years divorced because this sense for flirt and pampering is missing.

I've read some about the Dating Scene for Westerners in Tokyo- TLDR seems to be: easy for a Western Man to date Japanese Women, difficult for a Western Woman to date Japanese Men. (I should start with a caveat: since I came to Tokyo from New York for business school only last fall, my view of the dating scene is limited, so I asked some Japanese classmates for their perspectives as well.)
