I did the online dating many years ago and a couple of men say that it was getting too expensive for them to ask women out because even if you meet them just for a coffee, it quickly adds up.This isn’t a problem for Japanese men who usually will arrange a date at a very cheap cafe and still expect me to pay my share!
Of course, none of the women gave a rats ass what he said, they just were mesmerized by his accent.
I don’t like having to wonder if my date is interested in being in a relationship with me, and dating isn’t very fun because of the games involved in the process.
On the other hand I like that American men are more chivalrous than Japanese men and will do things like pay for dates and hold the door open for me. Has your dating experience in Japan been different than in your home country?
I was young and naïve so it was a little scary in the beginning and I soon discovered the dating process in America is quite different from the one in Japan.
In this article, I want to talk about a few major differences I saw between Japanese and American dating cultures.
