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

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

Consequently they don’t see the need to study Japanese, because their wives will take care of it all.

Things that they fear a foreign woman would not agree to do (e.g.

stay home, take care of the kids, always pour new alcohol into his empty glass etc.).

It might be a bit more difficult if you’re looking for a serious relationship as there are those women I mentioned earlier who either want you as “exotic accessory” or just want your DNA to create a cute “half-child”.

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.

I personally know a few couples where either the man or the woman is foreign and I noticed quite a lot of differences in the kind of relationship they have.

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

And at the same time there’s only a very tiny number of foreign (read: non-Asian) women with Japanese men next to them. Maybe that’s a secret we’ll never quite get, but there are many theories!

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

I also experienced that they’re unable to do anything on their own.

When I ask them about how they got their cellphone or credit card they just answer they don’t know because their wife did it for them.

The man only gets a small allowance every week or month and needs to ask his wife for permission if he wants to spend any more of his own hard-earned money!
