I’m sure you have your own and there’s much more behind all this, but that’s it for starters, I guess.As a result, dating in Japan is usually quite easy for men. From the outside, they are innocent and shy, but they can be completely different on the inside. It’s like they have a time delay gene suppressing their age… Imagine having a cute Japanese girl transform into a graceful Japanese woman. The first thing you notice about dating Japanese women are the caring acts they give. Thanks to the Japanese diet and culture, women age well into the years.For some guys it really gets to their heads and they start bragging about it like crazy as part of the superstar syndrome.The complete opposite is the case for (Western) foreign women in Japan.
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.
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.
Most foreign men on the other hand, have no issues approaching a Japanese woman in English – or even in broken Japanese.
These are just a few theories by friends, co-workers and myself.
Japanese guys are often too shy, scared or whatever and the majority of Western men is only interested in Japanese / Asian women.
