You've been living in Japan for a few months now and you feel you want to take a dive into the dating life but you're tired of going to meet ups and you don't really have the courage to go out and meet people face to face. Thanks to modern day technology you can find someone without all the social awkwardness and nervousness of doing it face to face.
As technology advances so do conveniences in every day life which extends to socializing as well.
I was new to the online dating scene and a little hesitant at first.
That was back in the days before Tinder became popular and online dating wasn’t as socially acceptable.
Before we start talking about “Dating in Japan” one thing should be crystal clear: 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.
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. You certainly won’t find that here – and not from a foreign girl like me!
Japanese men seem to expect certain things from a woman.
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!
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!
They’re not afraid of showing their feelings in public or telling their girls flat out how they feel about them. The extreme version of this is known as “gaijin hunter” and some will do everything for the sake of having one of those adorable “half”-kids (half Western, half Japanese) just to toss their foreign guy later on.
