What is normal dating like
Japanese guys are often too shy, scared or whatever and the majority of Western men is only interested in Japanese / Asian women.As a result it is tough to find a date as a foreign woman here in Japan.Consequently they don’t see the need to study Japanese, because their wives will take care of it all.One big problem seems to be the fact that in Japan the man earns the money, but the woman takes care of it!In relationships where the man is foreign I noticed that they mostly speak his native language.Although they live in Japan and sometimes even have children together who also speak Japanese, the foreign guys don’t / can’t speak Japanese.And at the same time there’s only a very tiny number of foreign (read: non-Asian) women with Japanese men next to them. Maybe that’s a secret we’ll never quite get, but there are many theories!
Please note that the following is based on my personal experience and that not everybody out there is like that.
It is by far not impossible and I know quite a few girls who don’t only have a Japanese boyfriend, but are also married to a Japanese man, but it is still the BIG exception!
