Speed dating in japan for foreigners
Those who are unable, or likely unwilling to part with HK,800, can easily go to Lan Kwai Fong and meet friendly folks for a good chat over that same cocktail drink.
Relationships vary by country and so do expectations for dating. Teaching and living abroad shouldn't mean putting your love life on hold.
At the same time, like folks in most other developed countries, Japanese people have been inundated with media from America and are avid travelers.
However, because so few foreigners live in Japan, their best chance of meeting one in their normal lives is if they get lucky enough to have a native English or other language speaking teacher in junior high or high school.
On the other hand, dating someone from another culture can be extra rewarding.
Throw in some culture shock, the language barrier and a completely different set of rules and you have something like dating in Japan. I was with a girlfriend in Shibuya and two men approached us on the street and we went out for drinks.

If you want to read about bragging stories of all those Western guys who get laid a hundred times per day, then you came to the wrong place. For some reason maybe through the consumption of too many Hollywood movies Japanese women think that foreign men are like that.
When I first came, I felt no guys found me attractive since they never looked my way.
Here are some real life stories that will make you laugh and cry.
