A survey of Japanese women reveals just how to appease them on a date, which seems to be reducible to three simple steps.
Market research company iShare conducted a survey on Japanese dating habits in the 20-40 age range, asking women what they sought from a man when going on a date with him.
The (multiple choice) answers gathered seem to show certain clear preferences for what the man should be doing on any given date:
1. Driving (64.8%)
2. Deciding the type of date (55.6%)
3. Seeing her home (48.8%)
4. Deciding where to dine (42.6%)
5. Paying for the meal (38.3%)
From this it can presumably be concluded that the proper way to date a Japanese girl is to pick where to conduct the date, drive the girl there, pay for everything, and then drive her home – easily remembered as “drive, pay and drop.”
Men asked the same questions wanted women to decide where to conduct the date (65.3%) and where to dine (56.5%), but not much else it seems.
Naturally there was some scepticism about these requirements when they were brought to the gender equality experts of 2ch:
What are we, dogsbodies?
Are they really looking for boyfriends…
They just want slaves to do their bidding.
What do they think men are?
At least with 2D you are only stuck with the cost of the software.
