Dating a japanese man
My boyfriend works 12 hours a day which is basically half of the whole day, and with only one day off.
That only means he loses the chance for leisure or vacation and it’s sad to think that most of the time he misses special family events.
After all, no relationship is perfect and perfection is boring!
After publishing the article “The Truth About Dating In Japan As A Foreigner” a lot of female readers asked me what it’s like to date a Japanese guy.
“I moved to Japan when I was 18 and have been dating Asian guys ever since. I often hear girls who long for Asian boyfriends say that Western guys are dogs, and I can confidently say that Asian men are no different.

It was an interesting journey and I want to thank all of the participants for taking the time to tell us about their own unique story.

Refusing drinking invitation from the boss might affect his relationship with him so he can never say no as it may impact his career. Every culture deserves equal respect and acceptance even if it’s hard to understand it sometimes.
There will always be interesting things when it comes to cultural differences, throughout the course of a relationship, some are challenging, some are exciting, while others can be more difficult to deal with.
Very touchy feely Japanese couples are definitely NOT the norm.” “Long working hours and overtime are common here in Japan.
My first Japanese boyfriend would go for weeks without contacting me because he was working late every day.
There are times that he needs to spend some extra hours if the boss is still around the office, which, according to him, is a part of paying respect to his higher-up.
