Dating guys who have children
"On some sites, there was an option to click saying: 'I'd like kids someday,' but you would read the person's profile and think: 'You will never have time!
' If someone's going to the gym eight times a week and travelling every month, they are not putting a family first."Hmmm, I think it's totally feasible that someone might want to hit the gym, travel, have a life and also be willing to make time for parenthood.
Maybe they also think that a foreign woman might expect from their man that he’s telling his feelings straight out several times a day, something a shy Japanese man just won’t do.
Another problem is that many of the Japanese men seem to be afraid of their English ability and thus fail to approach a foreign woman.
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.
And at the same time there’s only a very tiny number of foreign (read: non-Asian) women with Japanese men next to them. Maybe that’s a secret we’ll never quite get, but there are many theories!
However, be warned: If you want to read about bragging stories of all those Western guys who get laid a hundred times per day, then you came to the wrong place. You certainly won’t find that here – and not from a foreign girl like me!
Prioritizing yourself doesn't preclude prioritizing your family, especially before that family even exists.
Limal's somewhat limited ideas about family life aside, I'm sure will help some baby-crazy singles to find each other and make new little Danes.
Most foreign men on the other hand, have no issues approaching a Japanese woman in English – or even in broken Japanese.
These are just a few theories by friends, co-workers and myself.
