American girls dating japanese guys
Because they’re different Despite the continually increasing number of foreign residents and tourists in Japan, there is no denying the fact that foreigners make up an incredibly small portion of the country’s population, with less than 2% of Japan’s roughly 127 million residents being non-Japanese.
For example, let's consider the United Kingdom: In Japan, there are over 11,000 male British long-term residents and nearly 4,000 female residents, most in the 20 to 60 age group.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. According to my Japanese husband, a Japanese man with a foreign girlfriend is seen to be 1) rich and/or 2) well endowed. Some of what you said holds true for my relationship, too-- like expectations of a psychic nature and general PDA, but because my guy spent puberty in England, he's a bit weird for here, I guess.I’ve heard from many people that they were just “used” as an opportunity to get free English lessons (or whatever their native language was).Let’s be honest; there are a lot of distinctly average-looking foreign guys living in Japan dating jaw-droppingly beautiful Japanese girls. But no matter how much we remind ourselves that it’s what’s on the inside that counts, there’s no denying the fact that human beings, flawed as we are, make a lot of decisions based on appearances. Rather than ask my wife (a native Japanese lady and, yes, far too pretty for me) and risk alerting her to the fact that she might have done better, I took my question to a higher power- the internet.
