I can live anywhere and I'm flexible about having children. 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.Japanese men seem to expect certain things from a woman.

These are just a few theories by friends, co-workers and myself.

I’m sure you have your own and there’s much more behind all this, but that’s it for starters, I guess.

The complete opposite is the case for (Western) foreign women in Japan.

Japanese guys are often too shy, scared or whatever and the majority of Western men is only interested in Japanese / Asian women.

A lot of Japanese women want a guy that tells them several times a day how much he loves them.

For some reason (maybe through the consumption of too many Hollywood movies) Japanese women think that foreign men are like that!

As a result it is tough to find a date as a foreign woman here in Japan.

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!

All in all, it is easy for a Western foreign man to find a Japanese woman or to have a nice relationship here in Japan.

For some guys it really gets to their heads and they start bragging about it like crazy as part of the superstar syndrome.

Please note that the following is based on my personal experience and that not everybody out there is like that.
