Japanese Women Surprisingly Single


Surveys reveal 70% of unmarried Japanese women have no boyfriend, and 15% have never had one at all.

The statistics were assembled by the Dentsu Communication Institute, targeting umarried women aged 23-49.

69.3% of unmarried women surveyed reported having no boyfriend, and 34.7% reported having not dated anyone for at least 3 years.

15.2% actually reported never having had a boyfriend at all

The results also revealed something of a surprise in light of previous findings – when asked about the main preconditions for marriage, 68% thought “trust” was important, 64.1% rated similar values and 61.4% “peace of mind.”

However, the traditionally crucial “three highs” (high income, high height and high education) ranked lowly – 15.1% wanted a high income, 11.1% a high stature and only 4.8% cared about high educational attainment.

Creepy virgin hunters enthused by the 15% figure must of course be cautioned that just because no boyfriend is reported does not necessarily imply the absence of sex…

    I'd be more than happy to marry a japanese girl. As long of course as long as she can commit to a relationship that's in it for the long run.

    + most girls in japan are really sweet and hospitable. They're sense of tradition and honor is what really beguiles me to them.

    that's why I'm trying to go to Japan during spring and at the Obon Festival. Of course I avoid city girls, they're mostly spoiled. My aim is country girls. It's been a year I'm learning japanese.

    I've noticed that many Japanese women's opinions of what makes a good 'boyfriend' are surprisingly high. They seem to think that all men must be Brad Pitts and won't settle for anything less. On one hand, good on them for not 'settling', but on the other hand, enjoy helping your family lineage die out.

    I just was about to post the japanese women should lower their expectations regarding the three highs when I saw the main preconditions for marriage.

    That certainly came as surprise. Maybe there is hope left.

    'scuse me? Since when was juggling a full time job while taking care of kids considered "big expectations"? Western women have been doing it for decades, and mind you these lonely Jap women probably won't even end up having kids if they married.

    And if you haven't noticed, the surveys for Japanese men overwhelmingly list "love" as their most important prerequisite,

    Maybe you didn't get the memo.....the fight to have women stay at home was decided in the 60's. Your side lost.

    I am curious about the difference from high income to high loyalty. Who were the surveyees. How many of the interviewees are self-sufficient (ie. the carnivorous business woman type) in this survey.

    Are they aware of the previous surveys and the negative backlash towards the gold-diggers-to-general female population and wanted to intentionally change the perception. Or perhaps they want to lull men to lower their guard against gold-diggers by answering anything but high income requirement.

    Well... as seen in earlier reports, they don't want to go on a date when they can keep on milking possible boyfriends trough the maid cafe where they work.

    Errr. Some men also take care of the children/do housework. So no, women don't do everything and have a job. It's cooperation, that's why you got married in the first place.

    Women in the work place basically destroyed my generation's concept of family so I would be completely for a mostly stay at home mom who has like a part time job or something and isn't required to do all the housekeeping.

    Kids need their moms. Really. And mom's who have their children with men they love need their kids. There are some things I think women are better at and child rearing is one of them.

    you know instead of blaming jap women , we should also take a look at the jap men and their behavior . Women seem to be pissed off as there big expectations of them made by men : like full time work and full time family service .

    To the single people out there:
    "You tried to understand.
    You studied and worked to raise a family of your own, but you see that the sea is full of idiots and whores.
    You're going so far to raise a family.
    You're going so far to become successful in life.

    But you see now: In this age, you cannot do both."

    That 15% probably consists of three groups of people.

    1.) The really fugly group
    2.) Those into selling themselves
    3.) Lesbians

    @Crim they're not that retarded, given the high cost of children & divorce.

    yes, Japanese women do not have boyfriends. they have walking wallets. that, or they whore themselves out to make the money and spend on themselves. so to end up single is actually quite common.

    excuse me , but why should women not only work full time , while also expected to babysit their husbands and kids ?

    yeah sure and western women are not walking brothels ? Never been in university have you ?

    What kind of cave have you be dwelling in? Who says women only have sex with boyfriend and husband? Hell, even those with boyfriend and husband would have sex with men that are not. Welcome to the beautiful world of 3D lol

    If a girl lost her virginity without having a boyfriend, it is a girl you would not want to be with in any case

    Japanese women have the habit/culture of declaring themselves as "single". Believe me, that's how the ladies in my office reply to such questions.

    It's really no surprise. They put their work, and almost everything else ahead of actually going out and meeting a good guy. It could also be that they are chronically shy.

    Is this another one of those memes like "Japanese women have no breasts" and "all Japanese women look like they're twelve"?
