The majority of Japanese men admit that they’re never saying the “3 little words” (I love you).
They hardly ever give compliments such as “You look so beautiful today.” As a woman, if you never get to hear such words, it makes you feel insecure and unloved.
In Western culture it’s quite common that the man is the one approaching the woman. That’s simply because a lot of Japanese men are quite shy, even more so with foreign girls.
I’d say it’s not a problem if you’re shy as a Japanese woman.
As a Japanese man you’re being raised to be the breadwinner, supporting your family. While this traditional thinking is slowly changing, it’s still very present.
Quite a few Western women I interviewed complained that their Japanese boyfriend has never time because of work.
Nevertheless, I strongly believe that you can find a Japanese partner regardless of gender, nationality or race and that’s why I’m making videos to encourage foreigners in Japan.I’m making You Tube videos because I noticed a lot of foreigners are very skeptical when it comes to dating in Japan.It makes me sad that some think it’s impossible and give up before even trying, especially foreign women.In comparison, most Japanese men are too shy and reversed to do that.Even in a romantic situation where it’s just the two of you, he might not show his affection clearly enough for you to notice / understand.Hi, I’m Nobita, a native Japanese working as a Japanese teacher in Japan.
