I have been searching for my soulmate for a long time without any success.
American man dating japanese women
But at least we can now rest easy knowing it’s a two-way street, because there are tons of Japanese girls who only date Western men.
If you happen to have a lot of Japanese friends, you may have met one or two women with a penchant for non-Japanese gentlemen.
While that's nearly 3-to-1 in favor of men, marriages among residents show an even larger gap.
If we look at the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare's figures for 20 (the most recent available), there were 236 cases where a British man married a Japanese woman in 2014, and 235 in 2015.
Apparently, foreign guys have some appeal in Japan due to their willingness to put their partner first by opening doors, carrying heavy stuff, and paying for dinner.
We’re not sure it’s fair to suggest that some Japanese men aren’t equally considerate, but it is surprising how easy it is to be called a “gentleman” here in Japan simply by not knocking people down to get on the train first.
Both historically and currently, the figures present us with a pretty clear conclusion: there are factors behind the men-to-women foreign relationship gap beyond mere population. Of course, we must start by saying that most Japanese men who answer dating questionnaires or are featured in videos on the subject are not against the idea of dating a Western women a priori.
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.
▼”Let me get the doo–uhhh, yeah, you might have to deal with that yourself.” We can’t wondering if some of these women have ever gotten past the first few months of dating a foreign guy, though.
