If you feel uncomfortable letting him pay by all means pay your part — your discomfort weights the same as his. Maybe he lived in a cave and has never watched an american rom-com. Or series. Or talked to real people.
Who knows. Great article! This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. Do you know a big pet peeve of mine? Do you know which ones bother me more? Women and Japanese stereotypes. Here are my tips to secure a second date with any man or woman in the world: Be you.
Be honest. Be comfortable. G once again seems to have cracked it. Due to the cultural values of conformity trying not to stand out and self-effacement putting the group before yourself , most Japanese people, especially girls, tend to be very shy.
So your bar for success is lower. Go get em, tiger. R: Yeah, I think being assertive to a certain extent will win you some affection but being overbearing is a bad move. Y: Hmm, I wonder. There are lots of shy girls. Actually, if you have too much confidence she may pull back, so moderation is very important. Like G said, confidence can be good, but three of the ladies actually felt that being too confident and coming on too strong is a big no-no!
Two girls even mentioned that modesty is very important. Alternatively, you could find that out ahead of time through conversation, and then buy her what she likes on a date. R: I think generally if a man invites you out, he pays or pays more , but it depends on the person.
K: I care less about sex than about age. E: I think a girl would hesitate to accept anything too expensive, big, or serious. Chocolates, small gifts, or some really good sweets are fine. Try things like small souvenirs or items that will give you lots to talk about! Presents are also effective in creating a good impression. No girl is going to be unhappy to receive one.
Well, this is good news! Once more, restraint and moderation seem to be the name of the game. Lavishing her with gifts might put her in an awkward position or make her feel uncomfortable. Keep it simple and sweet; your love life and your wallet will thank you. Of course communication is the key to any relationship, so speaking the same language is crucial.
You can expect your relationship to have even more, due to language and cultural differences, as well as personal. The important thing is to accept that this is normal, and strive to resolve misunderstandings peacefully. E: I think it would be good to invite her on a dinner date, with the goal of having her teach you Japanese.
I think there are a lot of Japanese girls who want to learn English. Also, teaching each other your language might be a good way to get close. Y: I think this is exactly right! In learning a language, the feeling of wanting to speak to someone is important. S: I agree with G. While dating and getting to know each other, your language skills will naturally improve. But did our Japanese women agree? K: Depending on the person, the topic of sports might also be best avoided.
For example, the Tokyo Giants vs. The one interesting exception is the mention of sports. As you might expect, he did warn against being fake, although Japanese people may well give you fake compliments! E: Just focusing on her appearance might lead to misunderstandings, so when you really want to woo her, I think you should compliment her on who she is on the inside.
Yet another area in which exercising restraint is crucial. Three of the girls talked about the importance of not exaggerating, but everyone agrees that being genuinely complimented is nice. Changing yourself because you think it will make someone else like you is a recipe for disaster. Be yourself and you will attract people who appreciate the true you. The Japanese are generally a race that adapt to other people.
E: People will be attracted to you if you value who you are. You should just be yourself as you are, without trying too hard or trying to be perfect. Y: I think this is true for both men and women! S: Yes! Three of the ladies affirmed that the old adage is indeed true. Dating advice across the world has some common threads, it seems. Be yourself, take an interest in your date, and take care of basic hygiene.
In Japan, though, you may face certain additional issues around communication and different expectations in social settings. Two of her favorite pastimes include eating and relaxing at onsen — though preferably not at the same time! Gion, Kawaramachi, Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Hokkai syabusyabu Odoriten.
Lunch in Ikebukuro? There are many. Tip 1: Girls' Responses. Tip 2: Girls' Responses. Tip 3: Dress to Impress! Tip 3: Girls' Responses. Tip 4: PDA - yay or nay?
My boyfriend works 12 hours a day, which is basically half of a whole day. To make things worse, he only has one day off. There are times when he needs to spend some extra hours if his boss is still around the office, which according to him, is a part of paying respect to his higher-up. This is actually quite common in Japanese work environments. People tend to stick around until their boss decides to go home. The thing that challenges my patience the most is the drinking culture.
As a result, people tend to go drinking and a lot. Sadly, my boyfriend is one of those people affected, and he tends to come home even later than usual because of these drinking parties even though the would not like to go. Is that completely true? He is a good provider and will shoulder all the expenses in the house. However, I should not expect him to go out of his way to show me a sweet gesture.
In this regard, people do tend to have very different experiences. Some might find Japanese guys to be very romantic and sweet, while others might see them as good-natured and responsible but not necessarily passionate. There will always be interesting things when it comes to cultural differences. Throughout the course of a relationship, some of these differences will be challenging while some will be very exciting.
Japanese people do tend to be on the conservative side and clean-shaven, as T, S, and L suggested. Clean-cut guys may have a bit of an advantage here. This means that women may not reject you outright in an attempt to avoid being too direct, as this is seen as rude. Escalate a little.
M: I think that high fives are more effective than handshakes. In a group, while mingling with everyone, get closer to her by private messaging her on Line or something. I agree that in Japan, slow and steady seems to be the best game plan. T: Very likely to make Japanese people uncomfortable, not just the person you're touching but everyone around.
R: I do believe it's nice to maintain my identity and do something the Japanese don't normally do, like touching someone's shoulder or arm during conversation nothing invasive, of course. As for actual PDA, Japanese girls are extremely reluctant to do anything in public; they just can't relax knowing that there are loads of judging eyes. S: This is also true! A lot of Japanese people hate kissing in public.
However, Japanese people who go to clubs are different, lol. Maybe start by chatting on a messenger as M suggested. Due to the cultural values of conformity trying not to stand out and self-effacement putting the group before yourself , most Japanese people, especially girls, tend to be very shy. So your bar for success is lower. Go get em, tiger. M: Warning: confidence and arrogance are different.
L: A little liquid confidence can help to make first meetings much easier to navigate due to the loosened nerves! T: A little confident seemingly but responsive is a good line? R: In my opinion, confidence is essential. Not to the point it turns into hubris, but in the sense that you believe in yourself and your abilities.
People don't particularly find self-commiseration or low self-esteem attractive. So confidence is great, but G, M, T, and R all make a point of warning against being overly arrogant. Alternatively, you could find that out ahead of time through conversation, and then buy her what she likes on a date. If she's a working person just like me, she can pay as well. Sure, it may have been so in the past, but I don't believe it should apply now.
S: This is also correct. Japanese men are bad at this. Sorry guys, sounds like the general consensus is: pay up. Maybe not in every case, but it is the norm in Japan and some girls will expect it. However, M has provided an interesting litmus test for the kind of girl she might be!
Of course communication is the key to any relationship, so speaking the same language is crucial. You can expect your relationship to have even more, due to language and cultural differences, as well as personal. The important thing is to accept that this is normal, and strive to resolve misunderstandings peacefully.
Either one or both of you have to make an effort with the language. T: I do think that for a long term relationship a certain competency is required, but that seems pretty obvious. R: If it's just a fling, then language barriers shouldn't be that much of a problem. However, if the aim is to have a more serious relationship, then they both must speak a common language up to a certain level.
On the other hand, I find the language and cultural exchange of international relationships fascinating. When you get into a heated fight, if you get too emotional she might get scared, so be careful. Conveying the feeling that you love her is more important than any words. M: I basically agree. The majority of girls will withdraw if you make dirty jokes from the very start. There are also girls who are cool with it, though.
T: Of course what you talk about will depend on the individuals involved. It's probably more important to stay away from some subjects and keep in mind that the things you think are "right" aren't always shared. R: I do ask the typical questions to have a starting point, but I also do the opposite of what G says. I tend to ask questions and talk about things that people normally avoid, be it religion, sex, philosophy, etc.
And many Japanese girls that I met were actually curious about many topics. I suppose it's something they're afraid of talking about or don't have the chance to do very often. S: Japanese girls are generally chatty, and want to be listened to. When a girl is talking to a foreigner, she also wants them to talk about themselves. M and R both let us know that some girls are totally fine with more difficult or crude topics.
But as G and S said, make sure to also listen to her! As you might expect, he did warn against being fake, although Japanese people may well give you fake compliments! M: Compliments are important, but some people will hate having part of their body like their legs, for example complimented. L: Commenting on outfits is a safe bet, and be sure to keep an eye out for subtle changes like new hair cuts! T: I do think this is easier for foreigners in some sense since it wont sound so trite and overdone.
R: Compliments lose their meaning if done in excess, they just sound like pure cajolement. But I do agree with his point about complimenting the effort. I also like to say that the date itself was very fun or that her company is very pleasant if it's true, of course. Everybody loves compliments, of course. But if you want to say something nice and you really mean it, fire away. Changing yourself because you think it will make someone else like you is a recipe for disaster.
Be yourself and you will attract people who appreciate the true you. M: Yes. I totally agree. T: True, but don't be too gross. R: Absolutely agree with this one as well. If a girl is trying really hard to be someone else or behaving in a manner just to please me, then I'm automatically put off.
Be yourself, have opinions, have beliefs, tell me what you like and dislike. S: Yeah, in large part because they like you precisely because you are different from other people! However, hot-tempered people are generally disliked.
While a couple of the men warned against being hot-tempered or gross, everybody agrees. Dating advice the world over has some common threads, it seems. Be yourself, take an interest in your date, and take care of basic hygiene.
