Japanese dating advice
Add a lack of a common tongue into the mix, and foreigner’s chance of wooing a girl’s affection can get a bit complicated.As Japanese girls tend to live with their families well into their 20s, ensuring she doesn’t “offend” her parents may rate higher on her priority list than the cute gaijin sending her Line stickers.Hand in hand with the public stigma are the judgment of what may be a Japanese girl’s most influential figures: her Mom and Dad.
It’s not just conversation that makes this a turn off either. Very few couples are interracial, and of those that progress to marriage, the overwhelming majority are actually between a Japanese man and a foreign women (source).
It usually just means diminishing your chances of a second date anyway, because you’ll inevitably say something retarded and scare the poor boy off.
All you need to do is watch all them little fishies floatin’ about.
Just pick out the fun boys from the pant-wetters, and at least you’ve got a whole new bunch of drinking and karaoke buddies. Picking up while your friend is getting married () is a national sport. He’s going to face-plant on his mad dash for the door. This may sound ridiculous, but it makes perfect sense as you don’t actually have to speak to your date.
Even deliberately avoiding eye-contact is advisable. A girlfriend of mine made the fatal mistake of looking a little too much at a gentleman friend, and he started pencilling in a date for the wedding. Maybe your best bet is to wear a surgical mask so he’ll have a hard time trying to decide what signals you’re giving out – you’ll be mysterious and aloof (and quite possibly contageous). Who wants to bother thinking of impressive things to say to someone you’ve only just met?
