But you’ll get the gist…)So we have 1.04 educated professional heterosexual man for 1 heterosexual educated professional woman. Yet educated professional men don’t view things this way. (274,000 heterosexual women between 18–64 for 28,000 heterosexual educated professional men in the same age range)This bothers many women.“My ex left me for Susie Pilates saying it was “easier.” Of course it’s easier.While Na No Blo Po assigns a theme for each month, and also offers daily writing prompts, these are optional.They also have a terrible time admitting their feelings or communicating their emotions, as this is against their cultural mores.Be prepared to be disabused, for whatever images you have conjured in your mind about finding love in Japan are certain to be skewed and not realistic, that is unless you’ve lived in the country before and you know the score. They don’t want “more” and in many cases they prefer “less.”(less success = less complications…)My friend Charles was frustrated after being ‘let down easy’ with the excuse “I think we want different lifestyles.”He said, “Why do women have such a narrow band for dating and then complain there is no one out there?!This gives men a much wider pool of romantic candidates.
All calculations based on high level census data split evenly across the genders and back of the envelope division, and don’t take into account important nuances like men who only date up or the number of heterosexual women I know that are done with men and now experiment with other women.
I mean, I’m tall and successful, so he should be MORE tall and successful. As long as a woman is kind, cute and brushes her teeth, she is considered eligible.
Men date a wide spectrum of ages, incomes and heights.
This isn’t to say that you as a foreigner can’t find love in Japan, because some people do indeed have success, but it does mean that you need to ‘clear your mind’ and realize that there is much that is different and much to learn on the subject of love in Japan.
Rule (men): If your Japanese girl lets you sleep over at her house while you are still only friends she may be a whore.
