However, the trend is in full motion with more and more Japanese people leaving traditional websites/services and giving dating apps a try.First let me say that Japan is an amazing country rich in history and culture.An international relationship can mean more bickering and extra time needed to settle your differences, as not starting from the same cultural footing means you often have to spend the beginning of a discussion just feeling each other out as to what you both think about the issue.▼ Even when you’re both willing to compromise, meeting in the middle is a complicated process when you’ve got the Pacific Ocean between you.With the majority of the foreigners on extended stays in Japan being male, and more Japanese women than men having a strong interest in languages and cultures other than their own, it’s natural that the most common international pairing for Japanese nationals is a Japanese woman and foreign man. Don’t say nice things about their girlfriends in front of others – 17.6 percent 5.Of course, every society has its attractive and unattractive aspects, which Japanese women revealed by sharing both the things about their foreign boyfriends and husbands that thrilled them, as well as the less pleasant parts of the package deal of a romantic partner. Don’t have a good body – 14.5 percent It wasn’t all bad news as far as Japanese men were concerned, though.I think women who have those kinds of domestic ambitions are better off with a Japanese guy, since that pattern’s been the norm for Japanese couples for so long.” ▼ Could this be one reason why so many Japanese salarymen need to stop off for a drink before they arrive home?Foreign men have a lot going against them, too, with the most obvious being the language barrier.
While men work hard to reach higher rank in companies, women “normally” work for companies, shop, restaurant but rarely become owner or president.
lthough tech is mainstream and fully integrated into western dating culture, over here in Tokyo, stigmas associated with dating apps still run high.
So in that sense, overall reception of dating apps in Japan is still about 5 years behind the United States.
I can only only speak from a man’s point of view, but to me it seems many western men have a misconception about the dating culture here.
Many assume Japanese girls love American (western) men and it’s easy to date but this couldn’t be further from the truth.
There are many things about Japan that has given me an incredible amount of respect for the people and culture here.
