Problem with dating older man
Please don’t stick to the old-fashioned idea that men should always make the first move.
If you like a Japanese guy, you should at least give him an obvious hint (e.g. And hopefully, he’s going to notice your feelings and ask you out if he’s also interested in you.
It might be difficult to notice at first, but we definitely show some sort of interest or subtle emotion.
In our culture, we heavily rely on non-verbal communication.
I’m making You Tube videos because I noticed a lot of foreigners are very skeptical when it comes to dating in Japan.
It makes me sad that some think it’s impossible and give up before even trying, especially foreign women.
In my opinion, it’s necessary that foreign women become more pro-active. This might be scary at first, especially if you’ve grown up in an environment where it was ok to play the “shy girl”.
But just because a Japanese guy isn’t approaching you actively, doesn’t necessarily mean he’s not interested.
Quite a few Western women I interviewed complained that their Japanese boyfriend has never time because of work.If you’re a girl who doesn’t talk much either, chances are the conversation gets very awkward or stressful, even if you speak Japanese fluently.As you might know, Japanese people are very sensitive about how they’re judged by others (the so-called fear of “losing face”).That’s probably one reason why we’re careful how and what we convey. It’s hard to tell whether a Japanese guy is interested in you or not.So, I want you to pay very close attention to their body language.
