Tell us about your experiences dating with Classifieds. Did their web self line up with their real world self?
Dating culture various from country to country, and as discovered by the (happily-married) Eat Your Kimchi duo this week, Japanese men have very specific things they look for when looking for a partner.
While Western culture things very little about things like this, Japanese culture places emphasis on being considerate to everyone and this trait is seen as undesirable. Simon finds this one incredibly interesting as all the Japanese couples he knows have the wife in charge of finances while the husband focuses on working, which puts this reason into a very reasonable context for Japanese men.
Even when the public image is of the soft-spoken, generously giving wife, at home in private Japanese wives are hardly docile.
And working fathers who come home after midnight and leave before 7 the next morning may be too tired to develop any deep conversations with their families, but that's not to say that they share a mailing address and nothing else with their families.
This is part of what makes it such a fascinating country to visit.
