Dating courtship and marriage in japan

It was an interesting journey and I want to thank all of the participants for taking the time to tell us about their own unique story.“I moved to Japan when I was 18 and have been dating Asian guys ever since. I often hear girls who long for Asian boyfriends say that Western guys are dogs, and I can confidently say that Asian men are no different.I bet it’s difficult to filter the ones who are truly interested.“There are a lot of stereotypes and some girls use them for their own personal gain.There is a good chance that he will like you too, and just not have imagined that you could possibly be interested in him.A lot of Japanese men seem to have an inferiority complex (many of my Japanese male friends have told me this), so they might not imagine that any non-Japanese woman would ever be interested in them. ” “He was just a gaijin-hunter, so that didn’t go to well.However, the deeper things went, the more difficult it was to understand each other.

” “Even if you are shy, if you like someone you should be proactive about it.We only spoke in Japanese with each other for a short time before he started to learn English, so he could communicate with me better.We eventually stopped speaking Japanese and now I’m actually unable to speak Japanese in front of him (shy, embarrassed … I actually forget that he’s Japanese and that he can speak Japanese.” After we got married we had some trouble with things like housework and money, but I’m not sure if that’s just him, a Japanese trait, or normal married life.He wouldn’t learn any English and it was really frustrating to communicate only in Japanese.At first I was happy about this, because I wanted to speak Japanese.
