Dating a japanese man
Have you ever wondered what to expect when dating a Japanese guy?Well, to start with, I am not Japanese nor grew up in Japan, so I totally had zero idea about their culture, characteristics and traits.Also, a general lack of e-mailing, phone calls etc. Although I don’t think that this just applies to Japanese men!” “If you can both speak the other person’s language, there are probably going to be disagreements about what language to speak.However, those particular traits and characteristics are part of what my boyfriend is now, so the only choice I have now is to understand and accept it as a part of loving him.Actually, those cultural differences that we have in between are keeping us together and we take it as a challenging adventure along the way, and I honestly think, it’s just the same as with any relationship, regardless of the culture.Obviously we change it according to the circumstances (we are not going to speak in English to each other when out with a lot of Japanese friends! If you need a lot of hugs and affection, make sure that he knows and don’t just get annoyed that he’s not automatically doing it.As long as you’re both honest and open about things, and actually communicate properly with each other, it should be okay!
Those that stand true to who they are seem to be the ones who find solid relationships. What we consider common sense is very different.” “When I first started dating my husband he was embarrassed to hold hands with me in public.My husband and I have a system where we swap languages every day – so today is an English day, and tomorrow is Japanese.At first, we went through periods where we would only speak English (which I didn’t like) or when we would only speak Japanese (which he didn’t like). ” “I think in general, it’s important to be very open about what you are expecting from the relationship.However, regardless of that, me and my Japanese boyfriend have been together for a long time now, so, I will share some of the things that I discovered with my personal experience in dating a Japanese.As we all know intercultural relationship can face a lot of challenges and issues.
