Will Japanese girls give me the time of day?
FIRST let me say I'm not one of those innumerable creepy guys on here looking to go to Japan to get an easy lay. I'm from LA but I live and work in Asia for my job. I've lived in the Philippines for a year and Taiwan for 2, and am now being transferred to Japan. I don't have some Asian f****h or anything, my past girlfriends are Asian simply because I live in ASIA. OK now that my disclaimer is out of the way, I've found myself having a hard time dating abroad. In the Philippines, the girls I dated saw dollar signs and wanted marriage immediately (scary), and in Taiwan, the girls were only interested in trying me out for a month or two like a novelty prize (fun, but that gets old too). Are women in Japan receptive to foreigners? Or is it likely they will similarly treat a western guy like a temporary play thing / sugar daddy? I just want a normal girlfriend, and the thought of going on one of those "American Expat" match sites makes me want to jump off Taipei 101... PS My work is with an architecture firm, in case you were wondering; and I'm 25 and probably an 8/10, if that holds any relevance.

Got news for you. What you experienced is pretty much the norm for Asian girls. You won't get the normal boy girl romance scene in Asia because to put it bluntly the Asian girls want the good life they think every American has in the US. Their focus is to get the good life, and right or wrong they think you are... More

Being what you are, get you feet in the door, you don't show respect or have great skill or value. It won't last long. As Taiwanese, I know, we only value strength. Will to move mountain. Being a great businessman. Or, a great knowledge person like doctor. All else is garbage. As far I know Japanese think the same way... More
