No wonder I also followed the path of online dating like most of the youngsters my age, as social media and online dating sites has taken over social lives for us. But dating found a new meaning for me, as I went through all possibilities of online dating in Japan. It was in those days when I was studying electronics in Japan, when I was exploring online dating Japan after a tiring day at the university. As I was studying people around me, and especially girls I would have wanted to flirt with, I found out that I would have to rely more on online dating than other methods to get a life. You would wonder why. Well, there are more than one reasons.
The Japanese style of dating
Firstly, Japanese girls though not introvert or shy, are quite conventional when it comes to dating. They prefer to follow the traditional route. Often they travel and do outing in groups of same sex friends. While traveling too, they do not talk straightly or forwardly to any men, and often approach slowly. Flirting is definitely practiced but in groups, where groups of men and women mingle together in public places. If among the group a couple finds more interested to talk separately, then they continue to meet a few more times in public places while enjoying healthy movie watching or dining activities or light traveling, before moving on to serious dating.
Secondly, they rely a lot on texting and online communication till they feel fit to date seriously. That is why; I took to the online way to grab a bigger bite of the social group dating.
Online dating in Japan was interesting
It was fun. Japanese dating sites were really exciting with lots of dating games, friendly interface, and lot of tools to chat and share things, and make the whole experience interesting. The texting and chatting that Jap girls and chaps prefer is well enjoyed through these dating sites, and with the addition of cool and efficient Japanese webcams for video chatting, dating has become more exciting.
I started it all as a fun game. I enrolled to a few Japanese dating sites, and then started communicating with a few Japanese cuties, till I felt hooked on to Akira. She was also looking through several options till she found me. Both of us liked each other, and had long hours of chat. I remember chatting after completing my studies at night, and then we continued to chat till 2 am. We could have called also. But then, the option of video chatting was there in online chatting at a much affordable rate, which encouraged us more to chat on.
Finally we met
After talking and texting for almost 3 months, finally we decided to meet. Till that time we were both serious and wanted to eagerly date. We went to a dating hotel to spend some nice time. After that we met frequently, and either went to clubs or movies or for a coffee. Sometimes we went to dating hotels too for some intimate space, until I proposed to her. Now she has come up with me to Italy, and we are well settled here after being married for 2 years.
