My first Japanese boyfriend would go for weeks without contacting me because he was working late every day.Also, a general lack of e-mailing, phone calls etc. Although I don’t think that this just applies to Japanese men!Yes they do want you to help raise their kids and do it all over again. If you have money, well that just makes you more attractive. Women in their 50’s – these women are your age and there are many available in this group.(yes I do fall into this category) Chances are good that these women have older kids who are well on their way and don’t really want your input on their children.These are the types of guys I feel we foreign girls encounter most. ” I think that’s generally a big problem – not only when trying to find an “honest” relationship, but also true friends.I’ve heard from many people that they were just “used” as an opportunity to get free English lessons (or whatever their native language was).Just like with any place you go, you have your good guys and your bad guys.” “During my first couple of years here, I encountered a lot of guys whose interest in me came purely from the fact that I was foreign.They wanted to know all about Puerto Rico and always brought up the fact that one day, I’d return to my own country.” “Now that I’m older, I still come across a lot of men who seem interested in dating a foreigner for language reasons.
What I find most interesting at this point is the whole dating scene.” “If you can both speak the other person’s language, there are probably going to be disagreements about what language to speak.My husband and I have a system where we swap languages every day – so today is an English day, and tomorrow is Japanese.Although I’ve been in Japan for 6 years now, I totally lack that kind of experience.
