Dating culture in japan
I’m not saying he should adapt himself completely; it’s ultimately his choice.
He might just not be compatible with the majority of Japanese girls.
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.
Every page had about 2 or 3 sentences in English and Japanese and a drawing.
I’m horribly bad at drawing but I put lots of effort and I got honest praise from the people around me whom I showed the book.
On my last page, I told him that it’s his story now and that there are still many white pages that can be filled.’ It might be obvious to many people but doing all this to a guy who is not interested (and possibly not used to dealing with girls) is not only ineffective but also counterproductive. If he was experienced in dating, he could have said something like, ‘I know that you are interested in me but I just don’t see you that way.
Since he didn’t specify what made him think that girls of his age were childish I can only speculate, but if he doesn’t make effort to unlearn his cultural values and learn new sets of values, he is likely to continue having difficulty.
I have noticed that cute girls tend to be quite bad at approaching guys. She is studying computer science and surrounded by a lot of guys.
They always get approached by guys and don’t have to make the first step themselves. It’s always interesting to hear all the boring questions they ask when they try to hit on guys: ‘What’s your name? Despite that, she is having difficulties with dating.
Many people provided counter-examples in the comments.
My personal experience also tells me that dating in Japan is completely feasible and a lot of my friends seem to be doing OK with dating here.
