When I first moved America to attend college, I was nervous about starting a life in a new country because I wasn’t sure how quickly I would be able to adapt to the new culture.
I find that dating is more casual and at times it’s hard to understand if we are dating or just hanging out.
Something fellow GP writer, Grace Buchele Mineta mentioned in her podcast interview.
Mostly because I had no idea how the American dating culture worked.
I was young and naïve so it was a little scary in the beginning and I soon discovered the dating process in America is quite different from the one in Japan.
Anyways, these are the things that I have learned from dating men in America and these are very uniquely different experiences. Quite frankly I don’t think either of them is very effective.
This sounds a bit creepy but it’s not so much telling someone you love them but rather the Japanese way of letting them know you like them and asking them out.
One thing that is very different in Japan is that it is not uncommon for a woman to ask a man out.
Another thing that I noticed was that American men tend to pay for dates but Japanese men usually don’t.
I did the online dating many years ago and a couple of men say that it was getting too expensive for them to ask women out because even if you meet them just for a coffee, it quickly adds up.
