I personally know a few couples where either the man or the woman is foreign and I noticed quite a lot of differences in the kind of relationship they have.Please note that the following is based on my personal experience and that not everybody out there is like that.It might be a bit more difficult if you’re looking for a serious relationship as there are those women I mentioned earlier who either want you as “exotic accessory” or just want your DNA to create a cute “half-child”.All in all, it is easy for a Western foreign man to find a Japanese woman or to have a nice relationship here in Japan.
Japanese men seem to expect certain things from a woman.
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.
You have stories to tell, and passions to share, and things to talk about that are more interesting than the weather.
Get noticed for who you are, not what you look like.
It is by far not impossible and I know quite a few girls who don’t only have a Japanese boyfriend, but are also married to a Japanese man, but it is still the BIG exception!
