Dating foreign women japan
Rebecca: Actually I think that must be difficult for foreign guys especially.
I don’t know if it’s true or not but I have heard that there are some Japanese girls who look to specifically date foreign guys because they’re seen as cool or ‘ikemen’.
Chiara: Or if they don’t want to talk to you then there’s just silence. I’ve noticed that if I show a little too much enthusiasm or come across as too independent, that will trigger silence.
Like if I initiate wanting to meet that puts some guys off here.
I mean I think that people will go on lots and lots of dates, going in and out of relationships over their twenties and kind of assessing what they want before they settle down.
Anthony: Is there really a casual dating culture here?I had heard that Japanese guys tend to be intimidated by foreign women.When I first came, I felt no guys found me attractive since they never looked my way.Chiara: I know some married couples and the first meeting is usually through friends or at university. Rebecca: I think quite a common thing among foreign girls who are in relationships with Japanese guys is that generally the guy has lived abroad or has some sort of not-typical Japanese perspective that makes him attracted to foreign girls.Even my boyfriend who is pretty confident had to wait for a friend of mine to set-up a dinner where we could meet before he could work up the courage to ask me out. Christa: Yeah I went on this one date and the guy spent most of the time on his phone and it was really awkward.
