While marriage rates in Japan have been declining overall, a growing number of Japanese women seem to be giving up on their male counterparts and dating foreign men.
So what is it about foreign guys that draws Japanese women to them? Kanae Hara at Gow Magazine writes: Both of them moved overseas with their partners. They both tell me that foreigners are more expressive with their love and make them feel happy to have been born a woman. Hara continues by sharing 10 ways foreign guys express their affection that make their Japanese girlfriends fall head over heels.
He actually got down on one knee and, while looking straight into my eyes, said: I think being able to use a phrase like that naturally is something only foreigners can do. I feel his love for me in "I want a japanese girlfriend" handwriting. I was especially surprised at how I want a japanese girlfriend always gives me the first and last bite when we share food. By contrast, Japanese men are known for being shy and inept at expressing their feelings to women.
So what do you guys and girls think? Nov 29th ThursHigashi Azabu, Tokyo.
An enjoyable lifestyle in an elegant modern residence. A true international community welcomes you warmly. Interesting how the Japanese woman is usually older than the male foreigner in the people interviewed. To I want a japanese girlfriend perfectly honest it is not hard for a foriegner to impress a japanese woman way more than a
I want a japanese girlfriend man can by just giving the woman what the average Japanese male does not.
Things like attention, coming home early evening, occasional flowers for no reason, doing things together, saying I love you, physical contact and treating your partner as an equal. Sure as hell works for me. If I tried thismy wife would have to spend the rest of the day deciphering my crippled-spider-crawling-through-spilled-ink handwriting.
Some of this stuff made me cringe haha. Their is nothing wrong with the occasional flowers and making breakfast in bed. You gotta love that stuff I think my girlfriend would eye me off very suspiciously or laugh at how dumb I sound. Probert, wow, I can see how women can't get enough of your optimism. Give some the above a try, it may lead to a smile, Bob.
Thank you JT for this article.
I think I'll print this out and show it to the Family Court judge in my annulment case. With no marriage proposal, no ring, no wedding.
I had a monster falsify papers to enter me in a false state of marriage. I did NOT give my consent. She even admitted in court that I did not propose or give "I want a japanese girlfriend" consent but the judge still has not decided if the marriage is valid or not. Yet right here in this article, as the 1 thing is the romantic proposal. Japan's Family Court cares nothing for the human rights of foreigners. Probert, we can go back and forth like you and Domi did back in the day, but the above tips on romance have opened my eyes about love in the eyes of a Japanese woman.
Think they should have put "Just not being an herbivore" at number one. I think that's the number one complain I hear about
I want a japanese girlfriend guys, they are either too passive or way too aggressive. Just like the sad and pathetic women who fall for the sad and pathetic guys who do these sad and pathetic things.
If you see them as 'sad and pathetic' I suggest you have a problem with sincerity and being considerate of your partner.
I have never had any problem showering my lovely wife with affection, whispering sweet nothings and generally doing the romance thing as well as I can manage it. I cooked her dinner on our first real date - and she was floored. I have always found her to be very appreciative of my efforts.
She is a lovely girl. This is funny, I bet none of the people interviewed here are MARRIED or if they are married it is one of those bogus marriages without kids, just living together to save money and to have a legal visa to work and live in Japan, let me see an interview with Japanese house wives who have not slept well for months after having a baby, a drunk gaijin husband who comes home late after getting a bit of action because his J wife is always too tired and not in the mood for sex etc.
So much romance it is making my skin crawl like Probies?? NetNinja, how in the heck did a J girl falsify marriage papers, you need to be at the city hall too, I am sure as heck they are not gonna let some dispy J girl walk and say, I wanna get married here are the papers, oh Dispy san, by the way where is your gaijin fiance?? Embassy guy, I am Buddhist, sure, just put your hand on the holy book, etc. Japanese girls are very naive and suckers for "I want a japanese girlfriend" bit of sweet talk.
Probert hits the nail on I want a japanese girlfriend head with what he says. Anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves. The article IS about unmarried couples. Your description of married life in Japan is very funny however. Well, there are some Japanese girls that are open to relationships with foreign guys.
Japanese women get a lot of negative social pressure when they get involved with a foreign man. In general there seems to be a certain degree of coldness to Japanese style relationships compared to Western style relationships. It's a good option for those Japanese women that want something more if they can handle the social consequences and manage the language barrier.
Girls dont like limp wristed eyebrow plucked makeup wearing skinny wimps, they'd go for their sister if they did like that. If you think most of the garbage written about in the article is "sincere", I'm not the one with a problem.
Oh, and I'm very considerate of my partner by the way. So, considerate in fact, that I don't have to " shower my lovely wife with affection, or whisper sweet nothings and generally do the romance thing as well as I can manage it".
You see that bit at I want a japanese girlfriend end that you said "as well as I can manage it", if you really mean something, you don't need to "manage" it. So, did I, and so was she. I didn't do it to impress her either. I cook every time I can still now. And again, not to impress her. I'm not fake like that. I'm sure you're a great guy and make her really happy, but when you talk like that, it sounds like you're talking down about her.
But, hey, maybe that's just me. This is both nauseating some of it just has to be made up by the journalist but also a sorry indictment of what many of the local boys are like. Just wonder if there'll be a follow up list of 10 things foreign husbands do that Japanese wives can't stand?
