What attracts Japanese woman

Postby charizardpal » Thu 07.26.2007 4:29 pm

I was discussing this train of thought with a friend recently and I couldn't give him a good answer. Does anyone know what characteristics Japanese woman find to be attractive?

All Japanese women like foreigners who like anime. That and cosplay.

You couldn't give him a good answer because there are none. Different strokes for different folks. In general japanese women like a man of principle, status, wealth, someone humble and tender yet strong, and with the potential of becoming a great husband and a father. I think it will come as no surprise when I tell you that I pulled that one out of my... magic hat.

If you're caucasian you're in an entirely different league of course...

I love the sparkles coming off of his arms as he lands in Japan. That's like me at parties, except I morph into "awkwardly bobbing head to music in the corner to avoid conversation" man.

As for the original question, uh, I am assuming that Japanese women want pretty much the same general things that women from any other country want. What is that, you ask? I have no idea.

*EDIT* there you go lemonaid. I also said "conservation" instead of "conversation" in my original post... Man, do I hate conserving things at parties!

Can you do me a favour, Matt? Edit your post and quote me again so it shows my updated post. I cleaned it up a bit.

EDIT:

Thanks a lot.

Conserving, eh? Bringing that friggin' freeze drier to parties can be a real pain in the butt or what?

Ack, there's no hope for the rest of us! It's a cruel world.

Excitement and adventure and really wild things !

Actually, I did have a conversation with a Japanese friend of mine, she says every girl likes a sharp-dressed confident guy who works in a bank. I dunno about the bank (or to an extent, the sharp dressing), but I think you can't go wrong with a degree of confidence. Not to be confused with arrogance of course.

Oh, and make sure you watch lots of anime and do some cosplay. Oh and have Gackt on your mp3 player.

That Gackt bit made me giggle.

More importantly, we just had one of these posts, and one of the smart gentlemen (two_heads or was it Mike? With my luck, I guessed completely wrong and someone will pop on shortly with a snappy comeback. <sigh>) mentioned that you should learn to woo the ladies in your home country before attempting other countries. I would quote it but I did a search for "Japanese Women" and a million posts came up- I often forget how obsessive people can be over the other gender...

And while I agree that people of a particular cultural background can have similar desires in certain situations, why does it seem like everyone asks, "What do (large group of people) like?" To try and answer for more than a group of five or ten is insane. "All American women like metrosexuals with Backstreet Boy haircuts and a tan." Puh-lease.

(This message was written at work. Sporadically.)

Edit: If I could make some suggestions, they would be to be confident (stevie is right and probably a lady magnet- arrogance is horrific, confidence is dazzling). Then, I would say, be yourself because someone out there wants you.

Of course, I'm an American Lady, so I shouldn't speak for others...

(And every girl's crazy 'bout a Sharp Dressed Man.)

Silly silly men. All women in all countries want the exact same thing!

But we still leave the one thing to be figured out by yourselves ;)
