Top 10 Professions Japanese Women Most Want to Date


When asked “what profession would you most like to try dating?” Japanese women gave a less than surprising list of the most glamourous and lucrative professions they could think of, apparently supporting the all but universally held notion that material wealth is the key to success with the ladies…

The ranking:

1. Doctor

2. Pilot

3. Comedian / “talent”

4. Entertainer

5. Lawyer

6. Working in the mass media

7. Manager

8. Working at a big manufacturer

9. Civil servant

10. Musician

Even politicians and academics found themselves languishing at the bottom of the list, showing perhaps that high status is not as desirable as high salary; a poor showing by financial professionals, also at the bottom, is probably a reflection of the lately less than stable nature of this industry…

However, this list is positively balanced in comparison to the male version, visible here.

    Engineers are the unsung heroes of humankind. Knowing the fact that efforts and innovations benefited far many lives (behind the curtain) than many other professions combined is a satisfactory reward of its own.

    While doctors heal 1 life at a time, mechanical engineers invent instruments that could perform much more complex surgeries than before.
    While pilots fly hundreds of passengers everyday, aeronautical engineers continually improve designs to ensure passenger safety.
    While entertainers bring smiles to people in front of them, communication engineers bring smiles to people in front of the mass media throughout the world.

    Whilst having a family is a perfectly optional choice of an engineer, to dive into the engineering profession without fully realizing that your job will demand your absolute dedication and commitment with minimal materialistic rewards is a mistake. Know that engineering is one of the few remaining fields in which noble and moral values are highly relevant to the job.


    If only I could name a few anime/manga that center around engineers....

    So, the females chose their partner based on their own gain of the deal, while males choose theirs by the satisfaction of their lust? Seems pretty close to about every other country, although different in magnitude.

    I don't know why the article continues to stress the money thing when this article contains such examples as "#3 Comedian". I imagine it's just because Sankaku writers can't stop stereotyping Japanese women as greedy bitches at every single goddamn opportunity they get.

    You guys are SOOOO guilty of wanting women outside of your league. Most of you are a 6 or less out of 10 looks and personality wise, and have little to nothing in common with the average "hot" woman. Therefore, logically, the only way for you to get any is to have enough money to convince said "hot" women to want to be around you for any length of time. I agree with that Dilbert book that I read that says that engineers pretty much are looking to eventually just replace women because the current model is flawed in one way another.

    I'm an average woman, kinda chunky yet active and gregarious. I love geeky things like anime, video games and get along pretty well with geeky guys in general.

    And yet, they're sitting there drooling over some girl who has nothing in common with them and fantasizing about their hot butt all day. They're like dogs chasing cars; they have no idea what they'd do if they caught one.

    I've had my share of "nice guys" dump my ass for some vapid idiot jerk woman who stepped all over them and broke their hearts, and yet they were still retarded over these women because they were thin and hot in a stereotypical way.

    I say, good riddance! If you really want to get yourself a hot golddigger, then great! One less mook to deal with in my life.

    Seriously, guys, if I'm going to date an asshole, I would prefer him to be a hot asshole with good hygiene and who at least showers me with stuff and affection at the beginning and enjoys pleasing a woman in bed.

    None of this wimpy geek play that I've been getting with guys who seem to think that porn is sex (ie: me doing all the work), who haven't heard of a damn shower (because they would rather surf 4chan), and whose idea of a birthday present is telling me that I don't have to get THEM a birthday present.

    At least women who date rich attractive jerks get SOMETHING socially and economically out of the experience.

    I don't even have my dignity anymore.

    Fuck you, nice guys of the world. "Nice Guy" is obviously secret code for "passive aggressive asshole jerk who will use you and throw you away."

    I threw away your argument when I reached this statement.

    and forget a window to every anon, you dont even use what you have and look at what most poeple are actually saying here... the most of us hate goldiggers. Did you even see the responses to the article posted here about 90% of Japanese women wanting high salery men?

    as for "And yet, they're sitting there drooling over some girl who has nothing in common with them and fantasizing about their hot butt all day. They're like dogs chasing cars; they have no idea what they'd do if they caught one."

    was that last part a huge cliche or a quote from a movie? Either way, I cant stand how so many people hate stereotypes and then cling to them like lifesavers! What you discribed yourself as looking like, there are people who fantasize over bodies like that. There's an ideal looking woman for all kinds of men out there. There's people on this site that like boobs of all kinds of sizes, from non-existant to the size of the moon. When arte posts a picture, it's never unanimous that the person is either ugly or beutiful, there's always an argument.. unless it's one of arte's purposely grotesque posts, ofcourse, lol.

    And why do you care what we think? most of us are ugly anyways, right?

    Finaly, everyone has their fantasies, even happily married people. Only a fool would be jeleous over impossible fantasies, and only a fool would cling to impossible fantasies rather than accept reality and what you already have, but just having fantasies doesnt make you a fool by any degree. I dont dream about the women i find attractive having nothing in common with me, part of the fantasy is that they are beutiful not only outside but inside, and who am I to assume they arent really like that? THe only people without fantasies are those who psyche themselves away from them, by telling themselves that theyre wrong and horrible and that having them makes them a bad person.

    Well, those pilots with an extremely secured job while lazying around are not civil pilots. Its the military pilots. With a pacifist country like Japan and a idiotic neighbor like N. Korea, you do the equation.

    Just weight out the amount of time they will be on duty as compared to their wages which equals to their risk.
