Foriegn dating customs
It might be a bit more difficult if you’re looking for a serious relationship as there are those women I mentioned earlier who either want you as “exotic accessory” or just want your DNA to create a cute “half-child”.
All in all, it is easy for a Western foreign man to find a Japanese woman or to have a nice relationship here in Japan.
Because of all that I’ve seen couples who got divorced, even when there were kids involved.
I noticed that those kind of relationships seem to work out better if they live in his home country and not in Japan.
Another problem is that many of the Japanese men seem to be afraid of their English ability and thus fail to approach a foreign woman.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.In relationships where the man is foreign I noticed that they mostly speak his native language.Although they live in Japan and sometimes even have children together who also speak Japanese, the foreign guys don’t / can’t speak Japanese.
