Every year, thousands of people from all over the world find love on
There’s a short guy—-the Japanese really are short! That’s because the people who didn’t get lucky have already left. Although I still believe that for her to opine about dating as a foreign man seems roughly on par with me talking about being a German blogger.
They like “foreigners.” It’s like somebody visited Japan one time, went home and wrote about it, and from then on everybody ran around repeating the same stuff. In fact, if you stay long enough, and you don’t hook up, then by default everyone’s hooking up but you. So in the end, I wrote the article, partly because I enjoy reading Jasmine’s site and wanted to contribute.
The time I am referring to was before I met Sasha Daygame and all the other supportive and inspiring people who helped me to break free from the chains I put myself in.
During my bootcamp with Sasha in Oslo I slowly started to realize that I suddenly feel this tingling in my stomach when I looked at the local girls.
Or to put it another way, everybody thinks it’s easy for the other person. Well, I don’t really either, but I imagine it’s that thing where if I say, “Japanese people are shy,” then you start noticing all the ways in which they’re shy. Basically about 99 percent of what’s written about Japan is just regurgitating some myth that somebody else said. It’s not that 100% of the people got lucky; it’s that you’re the only one who stayed around gawking. So I didn’t entirely relish wading into all this, but then Jasmine threw out a leading question I couldn’t resist: For one, I thought it was a strange question, partly because of the word “get,” which sounds like you’re going fishing for Japanese people. For another, I felt the real question was, “Is it easier to date in Japan than it is anywhere else?
There’s a Japanese woman walking with a black man—-they like black guys! There’s some statistical thing going on, is what I’m trying to say. Half a dozen couples a day, out of cities with millions of people. I mean, can you really talk about dating Japanese women .
And not just Japanese folks either; I mean foreigners. Oh now somebody else starts rambling about traditional homes being all infused with zen beauty, and rock gardens, and koi fish.
Like if I said, “Japanese architecture is stunning,” somebody’d stand up and complain that the cities are just jumbled amalgamations of aging concrete projects.
Plus, Jasmine kind of got my hackles up with a previous post. She’s a German blogger, and I give her mad props for being able to write so well in English. At least getting one woman after another into your bed, is really easy, even if you’re quite ugly! Men and women are meeting each other, at clubs, coffee shops, and at the mailbox on the corner. And you probably don’t notice it much unless—-oh wait—-they’re of different races.
