Somewhere in the minds of the males from the west is the thought that every Japanese woman could give a man the experience of a geisha.
Well, not quite, but then, unless you date one, you will never really find out, will you?
For example, for dating that will lead to marriage and that is in accordance with the Japanese culture, first, there is gokon (blind dates with friends), then there is kokohaku which is where you say “I love/like you” which is taken as an expression of interest to take her out.
After that, there is “meet the parents”, more private dates and eventually, marriage.
They’re just a little different from guys in your home country, having grown up in a very different society and culture.
There are also rumours that Japanese guys aren’t gentlemanly. I reckon gentlemen across the world are few and far between!
These days only Colin Firth can officially be classed as a gentleman.
Mystery, myth and a special kind of sensuality surrounds Japanese women.To be honest, I know a lot of women who feel downright ugly in Japan and leave because dating is so miserable.They return to their own country where they have a chance at love and I don’t blame them. To be honest, I didn’t come to Japan looking for a boyfriend.I met my fair share of Japanese guys, but one average night out last year I met a not-so-average Japanese guy, and it’s now coming up to our first year anniversary!Her blog focuses on keeping it real (which I love) and the realities of life, love and dating in South Korea based on her experiences.
