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.
For foreign women it’s a completely different story.
Japanese men seem to expect certain things from a woman.
For some guys it really gets to their heads and they start bragging about it like crazy as part of the superstar syndrome.
Foreign guys often seem to struggle with this system.
You’ll start to feel completely unattractive and ignored at times.
Of course, you get a lot of attention and there’s all this staring, but it’s not because anybody is flirting with you … It might be a different story in bigger cities such as Tokyo and Osaka with a more international community, but in smaller cities and in the countryside with more traditional ideals it can be very difficult for foreign women.
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.
