Then the real question is this: what is the difference between successful and unsuccessful people?
Fortunately, thanks to zoomingjapan, I have a good sample of comments on this.
It is commonly believed that dating in Japan is easy for non-Asian (particularly white) men and hard for women.
I came across a blog post by zoomingjapn, a German girl living in Japan, writing about dating in Japan as a foreigner. She writes, ‘It is comparably easy for a western foreign man to find a Japanese woman or to have a nice relationship here in Japan’, but ‘it is extremely tough to find a date as a foreign woman here in Japan.’ Her story is interesting in itself but the most interesting part of the article is the huge number of comments gets – 162 comments (or about 30,000 words! A lot of people who commented actually disagree with her.
(25 yr old manager) In both Japan and Korea it’s a common expression of affection for the woman to clean up the guys place.In particular, non-Japanese guys tend to disagree because they don’t think it’s easy to date Japanese girls. Overall, does it mean that it’s hard to date Japanese people regardless of your gender? If you are in a foreign country with a completely different culture, it is logical that you might have a hard time dating.Dating often involves a lot of hidden rules and non-verbal cues. I think I just wasn’t meeting the right guys because I ended up meeting a lot of toads. Throw in a new culture, language, and country and BAM. I think they’ve got great hair and eyes, and their culture is fascinating.
