It is by far not impossible and I know quite a few girls who don’t only have a Japanese boyfriend, but are also married to a Japanese man, but it is still the BIG exception!Some of us will go through a hard time here in Japan. Before we start talking about “Dating in Japan” one thing should be crystal clear: If you’ve ever been to Japan you might have noticed that there’s a tremendous number of (often not so handsome) foreign guys walking hand-in-hand with Japanese women. However, be warned: If you want to read about bragging stories of all those Western guys who get laid a hundred times per day, then you came to the wrong place. You certainly won’t find that here – and not from a foreign girl like me!I personally know a few couples where either the man or the woman is foreign and I noticed quite a lot of differences in the kind of relationship they have.Please note that the following is based on my personal experience and that not everybody out there is like that.
A lot of Japanese women want a guy that tells them several times a day how much he loves them.Things that they fear a foreign woman would not agree to do (e.g.stay home, take care of the kids, always pour new alcohol into his empty glass etc.).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.
For foreign women it’s a completely different story.
