A lot of ladies out there are probably wondering what it is like to date a Japanese man, and how to get one! The long answer is a little more complicated, as a lot of it depends on your situation. In this post, I will talk about my experience and give some advice for finding a partner in Japan. I met Seiya in a guesthouse sharehouse in Tokyo in August, The day I moved in was also the day that he moved out.
Well, yes, there seem to be more couples consisting of a foreign man and a Japanese woman than the other way round. In Japan, however, this is rarely the case. Most foreign men are willing to make the first move to approach a Japanese girl. They should be the ones to take the initiative. If you like a Japanese guy, you should at least give him an obvious hint e. In many Western countries, the majority of men show their affection directly through words and action hugging, kissing — even in public. In comparison, most Japanese men are too shy and reversed to do that.
Many seemed to be interested in cultural differences and resulting problems in the relationship between a foreign woman and a Japanese man. Instead I asked friends and fellow bloggers, who have had Japanese boyfriends or are even married to a Japanese man, to share their personal experience with us. It was an interesting journey and I want to thank all of the participants for taking the time to tell us about their own unique story. I often hear girls who long for Asian boyfriends say that Western guys are dogs, and I can confidently say that Asian men are no different.
