Western dating system
If you confess and she/he says yes, you two could be considered a couple.
In America, it really depends on the person but I have never experienced this type of initiation.
This isn’t a problem for Japanese men who usually will arrange a date at a very cheap cafe and still expect me to pay my share!
Anyways, these are the things that I have learned from dating men in America and these are very uniquely different experiences. Quite frankly I don’t think either of them is very effective.
I was young and naïve so it was a little scary in the beginning and I soon discovered the dating process in America is quite different from the one in Japan.
I did have a Japanese boyfriend but I ended things with him to go to school in California.
Unlike Japan, California is a true melting pot of cultures but since I had so little dating experience back home, I was nervous about getting into the dating scene in America.
