How To Date a Japanese Girl

nagaregawa-kohane-by-sano-toshihide

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?

Walking ATMs.

At least with 2D you are only stuck with the cost of the software.

    That's why they want you to do it.

    Bitches love gratuitous displays of wealth, even when such displays suggest the man is fiscally irresponsible.

    It's probably cause money is the modern version of being able to swing a 200 pund axe to kill a bear to have for dinner. That or kill a man and take his money to buy meat either way money is the new symbol of a provider.

    I think the first one is the major contributing factor to the love of money amongst Japanese girls. It's not like there are many other ways to show one's adequacy as a provider in a repressed country.

    the second one is the reason why Chinese girls like rich men.

    No need for Stockholm syndrome... you could easily train the perfect slave without it.

    Positive and negative reinforcement of desired behavior could be achieved using food, electrical shocks, drugs, aural manipulation during sleep, showing videos that portray slavery as positive etc. Eventually, her will would 'break' and her perception of reality would have changed - the man would now be her god/master that she'd fear and respect.

    Forget normal rape, you could experiment with all kinds of humiliating and degrading sexual orders that she'd have to obey to get fed and avoid punishment. Especially delicious when done by an extremely (physically) ugly and disgusting man, that she had previously hated.

    This is probably the best application of psychology I know.

    It's just old fashioned date methods. In the past doing all of that was as basic to dating as i dunno 2chs "love" for 2-D.

    Honestly i'd probably do this stuff just as if it were natural cause to me it is.

    I am a girl but I have never understood how other girls can just take from men so easily. I feel guilty if I don't pay for myself. Money doesn't grow on trees, and I'm sure it doesn't for men either.

    Well, I can understand a bit since it was considered polite not so long ago but for the first date only. As you say, money doesn't grow on trees. People have to work hard for it and girls can't expect they'll get everything for free just because of their cute smile or something.
    Moreover, it's not just about money, I don't understand why they expect man to do just everything. Of course different people picked different answers in the survey but still, seems a lot to me what a man should do according to this.
    And what's with driving anyways? I don't know but walks seems more intimate to me...

    Thank God that there are still women like you in this world.

    Some of the girls (I call them as I see them...) want to say that they are independent and all that and still want the man to pay for everything and shower them with gifts. The balance in power (figurative speaking...) is all given up to the girl in the very beginning.

    The guys that go for that don't understand how attraction works it's like Sorrior said about swinging a 500 pound axe to kill the bear for dinner. A wussy bag isn't even going to have the will to lift that axe in the first place he's gonna end up on his knees with two kids and while he's driving them to school and she's at home alone...

    Using money to attempt to bribe a woman into loving you is the actually the first step in driving her away even manga/hentai understands where that concept leads.

    I'm going to Japan to find out if these things are even remotely true.

    Then again being Black I probably won't be able to get close enough rich or not.

    I'd be better off just moving back to California.

    I don't really agree with you, the man should pay... its just proper etiquette.

    Although it does actually seem very misogynistic and sexist, this common etiquette has been around for a good few years, back in a time LONG ago, when everyone was a misogynistic sexist...

    Anyway, from my rather lame upbringing, the man Should pay.

    I'm a Man, So if you want to date me, I'll pay for your meal in return for the company~

    (Without your company, or anyone else for that matter, I'll be a forever alone anyway and keep that money for future animé products....)

    That is very chivalrous of you, but women nowadays have earned the privilege to earn income fairly equal to men. So naturally I believe with that privilege comes responsibility, no?

    I do understand where you are coming from, however I suppose I can't take proper etiquette into account when men are struggling economically these days.

    Besides, if I did want to date you, aren't I just looking for your company as well? If you paid, that's very nice, but I would feel as if I owe you.

    (If I didn't pay for myself, I'd probably just buy something else just as self-indulgent anyway.)

    Or perhaps take into consideration on a secondary date to cook a homemade meal for him? Those tend to be on an expensive side depending on what you cook, but definitely can lead to an outstanding impression.

    Is this too much pressure for today's pussified men? The list above are things that men should want to do in any situation. I, for one, am not going to be waiting around for a decision to be made while we both engage in a conversation that goes like this:

    "So what do you want to do?"
    "I don't know. What about you?"
    "I don't know."

    FAIL.

    And who the hell wants the chick to drive?

    I think that I wouldn't mind a conversation like that if it means that later, if i had picked somewhere that she didn't like, I could say "well, i gave you the chance to pick where we were going." :)

    I think that everyone should drive their own car, that way if the date goes bad, I don't have to drive the girl home with her whining all the way, or if I decide to go somewhere else after the date (like if i get called in for work) then she can take herself home.

    Why is that? (if i may ask...) Is it because not every guy feels that he should have to pay for every little thing on a date?... While I will agree that for the most part, i don't mind paying for a girls dinner if I chose to ask her out, on that same token, she shouldn't mind paying for mine if she asks me out... that doesn't mean that I would allow her to, it just means that I shouldn't constantly be expected to foot the bill every time we go out... What if it was reversed & the girl was always expected to pay?... I doubt (if you are a girl, I don't know if you are or not, & I won't even ask if you are...) that many women would feel the same as they seem to right now... That's just like this B.S. blog I read where some blogger wants everyone to believe that men are always the aggressor in a relationship or that men are always the ones who initiate sex... This same person even stated that when it comes to prostitution, porn, & strip clubs, even when it is men being objectified, it is harmful to women... Don't get me wrong, but if women say they want equality (which they do deserve...), then they should be prepared to take equal responsibility (As a lot of women do...). I don't expect everyone to agree with my views, despite how "right" or "wrong" I may believe something to be... As no one should expect that from anyone...
