Among Japanese teenagers the most basic way of starting to date someone is by giving them a “kokuhaku” or love confession.This sounds a bit creepy but it’s not so much telling someone you love them but rather the Japanese way of letting them know you like them and asking them out.
The thing that I like about typical Japanese dating custom is that “kokuhaku” (confession) makes the start of relationships more simplified.
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.
Mostly because I had no idea how the American dating culture worked.
One thing that is very different in Japan is that it is not uncommon for a woman to ask a man out.
I have to confess that I had a crush on a boy in junior high and my friends forced me to do the kokuhaku ritual.
Today, I thought I'd share a little about what I've learned about dating here in America. A tip of the hat to my Indian-American friend Neel Shah, who pointed out just how badly women want to hear "I love you" in his article for the Awl last month.
Neel was joking around, and so am I, but the things you can get away with by saying "I love you," are frankly astounding.In America, it really depends on the person but I have never experienced this type of initiation.I find that dating is more casual and at times it’s hard to understand if we are dating or just hanging out.And to top it all off, even the taken people are still available. Women and men in this country will believe that you want nothing more than friendship just because you say so. People will talk all kinds of nonsense about how it's impossible to get out of the "friend zone," but don't listen to them.There are entire sites like Ashley Madison, that help married people cheat on each other. I know the secret escape tunnel out of the "friend zone." It goes right through France, and their favorite method of kissing.4.So despite running the company on my own, I have had remarkable success for a small outfit - in the United States, Canada and the UK.
