This is admittedly a newbie post, but I hope you guys will bear with me.
I've been living in Korea for about 6 years now and the dating culture here is different in so many ways from that in my home country that it took me quite a while to get used to it upon first arriving.
The Trip Notification is also growing in popularity.
Dating and eventually entering into some significant relationships with Japanese men has allowed me to learn and grow in so many ways.
In addition to a Free profile, members can participate in Groups, post photos and send Smiles for Free. Gaijin Pot Personals is an upscale dating service that caters to successful international singles.
Our international member base includes over 5 million members from over 200 countries.At the moment, I'm planning to take a job in Fukuoka and, given my past experience, am expecting the same kind of dating culture shock, so I wanted to ask a few questions about the logistics of dating there that I'm hoping some of you will be willing to answer: 1) Phone contact: Reading through these boards, I've noticed that swapping e-mails and communicating through sporadic text messages seems to be common, whereas in Korea it's more about several text messages a day and quick replies (more intense) with no e-mail addresses being exchanged.Do you usually ask for an e-mail, phone number, what?While not without momentary frustrations caused by miscommunication and different cultural expectations, I highly advise you all to try out dating during your time abroad.If anything, your Japanese will get so much better!Evidence on this board indicates that Japan might be different in this regard though. 5) Foreignness: Is there any stigma for girls about going out or being seen with gaijin? Are Japanese guys usually cool about gaijin guys dating Japanese girls or will you get dirty looks, comments, etc.?Is it common for gaijin guys to be friends with Japanese guys, and if so, are they cool about introducing you to their friends?I think we should take advantage and try to date our students, why not!Are there any strategies people would recommend here? I never used to do this, but recently have decided to.There is also a Premium Membership tier that offers access to all features on the service.English is used by most Members for their Profile and Messaging. They come from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, the USA and increasingly from Europe. More importantly, they respond to your emails, smiles, chat requests.
