Over the next two weeks we'll be writing a small series of posts about non-Japanese people dating Japanese people from multiple perspectives. Since the most common question I get in my email is usually a poorly written grammatical catastrophe that tends to be along the lines of "How I get Japanese gurls fast?
Now, in this post I won't actually be telling you "how get Japanese gurls fast" that secret disappeared with the Jomon, long ago , but I will be going over what it's like to date a Japanese girl, in general, based on around fifty people who responded to a survey I put out a couple months ago. There will also be some information that was gleaned from one-on-one interviews I conducted with people as well as some personal insight.
Are you ready to put on your imagination goggles? You're a dude, and finally finally! Just this once, okay? Later that night you shine your "Dispel The Foreigners" kanji tattoo, put on your fanciest cosplay outfit, and get ready for your first date with a Japanese girl. But then you realize, just as you're about to knock on her door ten minutes early boo boo that you have no idea what you can expect!
Don't worry, we're here to help. Keep in mind that a lot of statements are generalizations. All people are individuals that do their own things, so use the following information with caution. We are not responsible for causing any injury, death, or heartbreak, kk?
One thing in particular for non-Japanese guys compared to non-Japanese girls dating Japanese guys is that it seemed a lot easier for the dude to find someone willing to date them. If you just open your eyes and look around Japan you'll see this statement in action.
Even outside of Japan this holds true. How many couples are there with non-Japanese guys and Japanese girls? Okay, now how many Japanese guys with non-Japanese girls do you see? Probably not as many. Perhaps none at all. Part of this could certainly be due to the fact that Japanese girls are more open than Japanese guys to the idea of dating non-Japanese people. Whatever it is, if you're a guy you're going to have a much easier time meeting and then dating Japanese people.
As you might expect as well, a lot of men met their significant other via some kind of English-related activity, whether it was English school, some kind of English practice circle, or even a girl just wanting to practice English on a train.
Not looking Japanese has its perks in this case. It was a dinner for girls who wanted to learn English through my company. I was an English teacher in Japan for a few years, then when I returned home to Canada, I wanted to keep up my Japanese language skills, so I joined a Japanese-English Language Exchange program at a local university.
One day the group was sitting in a circle, and there were cute Japanese girls on either side of me. I made a quick decision that I wanted to talk to the girl on my right, so when they said to start talking, I turned towards her, introduced myself, and the rest is history.
Second girl introduced herself to me, in flawless English, on the train from Tokyo to Mito one night. That being said, a lot of non-Japanese people go to Japan to teach English, so of course there's going to be a lot of English-teaching-related relationships going on. Maybe most non-Japanese people are doing English-related things already, so of course this story comes up more often!
That's definitely possible, but I wouldn't know unless I talked to more Japanese girls dating non-Japanese guys about it. But, there were some other "first meeting" places mentioned a decent amount as well. Though, "English" does come up later in the "communication" section of this article, so perhaps there is something to it?
We'll talk more about this a lot more in the What It's Like To Date A Japanese Guy post since I think that perspective is more interesting here, but let's take a quick look at what you, the dude, is expected to do. First of all, you're going to be paying for everything… that is, except purikura actually part of a story I'll put in the opposite version of this article , because girls can pay for that on their own.
If you go out on a date for dinner, be prepared to pay for the food. No splitting the bills or BS like that, because you're the guy and you're going to pay. Of course, there's exceptions to this "rule" and there will be girls out there willing and asking to pay for date-related things, but that's not the norm.
That being said, if you end up living together or visiting her home, you won't be expected to do any of the housework or cooking. There were a couple exceptions to the cooking rule where the guy really loved cooking and insisted on cooking , but for the most part it's expected that you're going to let them do all of that.
There will also be some interesting cultural differences, depending on where you're from. Expect more gift-giving to happen from girls. This is one thing that seemed to pop up in the surveys that surprised people a lot, for some reason. Japan is a very gift-giving culture so it makes sense, but just be sure to be ready for it. My favorite quote has nothing to do with gift giving, however, and has to do with going on a movie-date.
We were on a movie date and she refused to let me hold the popcorn bag. She actually held it there for me for over 2 hours. Also, she has given me several little gifts pretty early on. Typically I wouldn't expect that here. The expectations of "what a guy is supposed to do" and "what a girl is supposed to do" are going to be different from culture to culture. I don't want to spoil too much from the girl's perspective article though, so I'm going to stop here. But, the above should give you an idea of where to start at least, should you find yourself in the position of dating a Japanese girl.
Affection and how you show it tends to be a bigger topic on the "girls dating Japanese guys" side of things, but we'll go over some of the bigger points here and you'll have to wait for more of the stories and such in the next article. In general, Japanese people don't show as much affection towards each other in public or in private, for that matter compared to Western couples.
This surprises a lot of people at first. There's a lack of hand holding, hugging, kissing, and so on in public places. Some people even complained that "the first kiss" happens way later than you'd expect, though others said that sex tends to happen sooner than they expect. I suppose both of those statements could be true at the same time, though.
There were some Japanese girl perspectives in the survey I ran and thankfully a couple of them talked about this topic as well as the topic of physical affection. It's more important to understand each other than it is to show how much I love someone through touching. Sometimes it's nice when thoughts are difficult to understand.
It adds some mystery to the relationship. Less physical contact makes physical contact more special when it happens. If you always touch each other, then it's not special anymore when you do. In Western relationships you're expected to show physical affection in private and in public. It's how you show you love someone, right?
In Japan that's not the way you do it and "understanding of the other person" becomes more important. This was also brought up a lot in terms of non-physical affection. One complaint I saw a lot was that non-Japanese guys had trouble knowing what the girl was thinking and feeling. It's certainly the Japanese way to not come out and directly say how you're feeling about something, so this has caused a few problems in respondents' relationships.
In Japan, you're expected to be able to read and understand people and how they're feeling, even though they're not showing it or telling you. That being said, Japanese people spend their entire lives learning how to do this whereas in the West we tend to just say what's on our mind so this "skill" never really develops.
A lot of people in the surveys thought their girlfriend was being cold to them, but in reality they were just being normal and the guy was expected to know what was going on. Or, when the girl was upset about something she wouldn't really say it, and it would become a problem when the guy didn't realize.
It's safe to say that you should pay extra close attention to noticing cues she may send out. If you miss them you may not think it's a big deal, but after a while she will think you're selfish and mean.
Communicating and talking about this issue has also proven helpful to some. Most families are nice, accepting, and won't try to kill you in your sleep because you're dating their precious Japanese daughter. Almost everyone had a great experience meeting the family… that is except for one respondent, who has an awesome story.
Keep in mind, this is probably not the norm. Also note that this Japanese girl also grew up partially in Japan and partially in LA will make more sense as you read it :. Dad was old school Japanese and hated my guts. At New Year's time, my girlfriend invited me over — I was off work with not much going on, so I suppose she didn't want me to feel lonely or call any of her friends back.
New Year's Eve day, and of course they're cleaning the house, for company the next day. I didn't understand oshogatsu protocol very well, and didn't think this was a big deal. I wanted to help clean, but of course they wouldn't hear of it, and sat me down in in front of the TV while they worked. I was just getting into watching The Highlander without subtitles when I heard a row starting in the kitchen through the door that separated it from the room I was in.
At this point, i asked mom if i should leave. Girlfriend stomped off from dad into the room I was in. Dad followed her very mad at this point telling her how a respectful Japanese daughter should never walk away from her elder when she was being talked to, and he slapped her face.
Like any young woman who had reached maturity in L. He went down like a ton of bricks. At this point mom leaned over, and still in very polite Japanese, suggested that now might be a good time to leave, after all. About 30 minutes later, girlfriend rode her bike over to my apartment with 20, yen her mom had given her, and we partied for the next couple days with mom's blessing. Despite the story above, this seems to be one of the things you least have to worry about.
In fact, there seemed to be more problems with the Western parents, because usually they were afraid their child would never come home again after marrying a Japanese girl sometimes they were correct in this assumption. Another topic that I thought might come up more but didn't actually pose much of a problem was the issue of "communication.
I have a couple theories on this.
7 Reasons Why Japanese Girls DON’T like Foreign Guys
Such cross-cultural marriages may have been pioneering in the late s, but these days they are overwhelmingly commonplace. A couple of years ago, when I was promoting a book on Yukio Mishima, I was interviewed in London by a Japanese journalist who suddenly asked me whether I too had a Japanese wife. When I told him that my significant other was Australian, he laughed at my eccentricity and remarked that in his experience, 90 percent of Western male scholars of Japan, when they had a wife, tended to have a Japanese one.
What might be cool and funny to you, might be completely lame and even weird for someone from another country The first thing to consider is what you would with any woman, from any country in the world. Be respectful and use your best attributes. You may be funny, witty, handsome, or knowledgeable. Use your common sense, and try to find some common ground.

Соши хлопнула в ладоши. - Он прав. Я читала об .
Боже ты мой, - пробормотал лейтенант из другого конца комнаты. - Он японец, а не китаец. Беккер поднял. Лейтенант листал паспорт умершего.
Он схватил убитого за запястье; кожа была похожа на обгоревший пенопласт, тело полностью обезвожено. Коммандер зажмурился, сильнее сжал запястье и потянул. Труп сдвинулся на несколько сантиметров.
Он потянул сильнее. Труп сдвинулся еще чуть-чуть. Тогда Стратмор напрягся и рванул тело изо всех сил.
- Неужели фильтры безопасности что-то пропустили. В целях безопасности каждый файл, загруженный в ТРАНСТЕКСТ, должен был пройти через устройство, именуемое Сквозь строй, - серию мощных межсетевых шлюзов, пакетных фильтров и антивирусных программ, которые проверяли вводимые файлы на предмет компьютерных вирусов и потенциально опасных подпрограмм. Файлы, содержащие программы, незнакомые устройству, немедленно отвергались.
Их затем проверяли вручную. Иногда отвергались абсолютно безвредные файлы - на том основании, что они содержали программы, с которыми фильтры прежде не сталкивались.
В этом случае сотрудники лаборатории систем безопасности тщательно изучали их вручную и, убедившись в их чистоте, запускали в ТРАНСТЕКСТ, минуя фильтры программы Сквозь строй.
Компьютерные вирусы столь же разнообразны, как и те, что поражают человека.
- Кроме того, ТРАНСТЕКСТ уже больше двадцати часов не может справиться с каким-то файлом. Фонтейн наморщил лоб. - Это по вашим данным. Мидж хотела возразить, но прикусила язык.
Почему бы нам не пройти сюда? - Он подвел Беккера к конторке. - А теперь, - продолжал он, перейдя на шепот, - чем я могу вам помочь. Беккер тоже понизил голос: - Мне нужно поговорить с одной из сопровождающих, которая, по-видимому, приглашена сегодня к вам на обед.
Мой человек отнимет. - И что. - Какое вам дело? - холодно произнес американец.
Делая маленькие глотки, она смотрела в окно. Лунный свет проникал в комнату сквозь приоткрытые жалюзи, отражаясь от столешницы с затейливой поверхностью.
- Помнишь, как ты отключил Следопыта? - спросила она, подойдя к своему терминалу. - Я снова его запустила. Посмотрим, вернулся ли. Разумеется, на ее экране замигал значок, извещающий о возвращении Следопыта.
Ненадолго, - буркнул Хейл. - Не зарекайся. - Я серьезно. Рано или поздно я отсюда смоюсь. - Я этого не переживу.
Стратмор кивнул. Она не выглядела взволнованной. - Новая диагностика.
