Dating someone because they're Japanese? 日本人とデートしたい外国人?

Is it racist to specifically want to date someone who is Japanese? Is it stereotyping Japanese men and women or is it just preference?

  • Me: moment after I watched the intro : Correction, we are not asking how to date a Japanese guy, we are interested in how to get a majestic husband like Jun.

  • My long time pen pal in Japan, Rieko Kose, couldn't understand what I saw in Japanese men. I said, "I think they are cute." But she loved English and white American men and replied, "No they are ugly! How could you say they are cute???? I want to marry someone who is good looking." Apparently, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and so it goes. By the way, we met through Iggy Pop and we both thought he was cute. Life is life.

  • My husband is English, and without fail, every single time he came to visit me, girls would swoon over his accent. I’ve had so many of my friends ask me to find them an English boyfriend, and I just don’t get it. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Wanting to be with someone purely because of their accent seems shallow to me.

  • Dating someone that's different is very weird but in a good way to keep an open mind in general. It depends on the other person that wants to be on a date, if that person from like Asia or Latin America or even from across the pond, I'm down to try new people from across the world. U dig!??? But be warned when coming to America, people will get aggressive, insecure and stereotype.😑🙄

  • The issues is there is a disconnect of what men want and what women want in a relationship. It happens in most places. It usually doesn't come up until marriage and kids come into the equation. The man wants the woman to stay home with the kids and run the house while he goes to work. While the woman wants to have her own career. Most men are ok with their SO having a career and doing their own thing, but then when kids enter the picture things change. woman can feel slighted or blindsided because they never discussed this before marriage.

  • If a person is going to have a relationship with a person from another culture then that person should have an interest in learning about that culture too. We may be individuals but the culture we grew up in has also helped shape who we are.

  • Well... one of my friends told me a couple of weeks ago something Similar of what you said about fetishizing people just because of its nationality but honestly I don't think I really do, because okay, I have to admit that I'd love to date a Japanese or Korean guy but I wouldn't mind to date a dude who's not Asian. The main reason of why I want an Asian partner is because I love slanted eyes. They're something BEAUTIFUL for me, idk why but I love them. In the other hand, one of the reasons of why I wanna a date an Asian is because I'd love to date someone with a different culture; I find really interesting the fact of dating someone who's from another country. Do you think my friend was right?

  • Important message for all of us to differentiate between cultural norms, and individual character traits, values, and behavior. Although it is true that people groups do have espoused normative values, ethics, and behavioral standards (part of cultural norms), supposed-to's do not hold true for every person -- especially as it pertains to individuals exhibiting and holding fast to each and every norm/generalization. Also, great point about attraction. Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder -- both externally. and with regard to character, manners, customs, values, ethics, world view., and so much more. No relationship is going to work or fail based solely upon national identity -- unless of course someone is just after some benefit to be gained from marrying a person of a particular nationality, and therefore will do everything within their power to make the relationship work because the relationship is just the means for obtaining the desired end (Visa, citizenship, etc).

  • I'd hope the majority of those making comments like this are only saying it because of their attraction towards Japanese people instead of basing it off stereotypes, anime and stupid bullshit that has no logical reasoning whatsoever behind it. The idea of someone 'wanting' something is fair enough but love is love, you can't just fall in love with someone based on attraction or preferences, you fall in love with whoever you fall in love with, true love cannot be forced. Open your minds a little people.

  • I think it may be they are living vicariously through you. They see Jun being awesome to you, and they want that. Not so much wanting a Japanese guy. They want a man like Jun.

But I don't really get it that serious and I'm not saying that I'll date only asian person (like - I don't know if I'll ever date anyone :D)

  • Do you think it's wrong to want to date a Japanese man if you're interested in spending your life learning from that person and expanding your world into an entirely different culture? I'd like to get to know a Japanese man possibly once in my life because of that. I've devoted a lot of my time studying the history of Japan, and I have a lot of respect for the culture. I think the best kind of relationship is the kind that offers you experience, learning and personal growth. I'm not sure if that's normal or reasonable or not.

  • I have a preference for Asians, however, I don't discriminate on who I date racially or culturally. I have no opinions on Japanese men or women because I don't know any personally. I would love to visit Japan and learn more about the culture. If I were to date a guy from Japan, I want to know what is below the surface.

  • I always thought this was the product of national relations working too well via media. The whole "I'm turning Japanese" craze back in the day. I mean, they were pretty much presented as ideal, "foreign", and very polite in comparison to the contrastly different American being notably loud and boisterous. And the hero, that may have been the typical American figurehead would dive us into their world which only made them more foreign glorifying those differences than similarities. "American boy goes to Japan!" -Cues Japanese music- as that American selves their Japanese oriented problems. It's weird but nationalism at its finest. Glorying personal ability and ideal while going on an adventure to an strange land like Japan.

  • I think the reason why people would only want to date a person from a specific ethnicity could be to learn more about their culture, but I don't think the right way to learn about a culture is to jump into a relationship with a person in a certain ethnicity because all people live differently and think differently.

  • Agree. We should not contribute to the culture of fetishizing or deriding Asians. They are neither sex toys nor monsters. People are people, and your attracted to people. I have been attracted to a variety of folks regardless of races it usually comes down to mental for me but everyone has what floats their boat.

  • I think people just have their preferences. As long as it's not exclusion, there is nothing wrong with it. I personally find myself more attracted to Asians, but I also fell in love with an American boy that I found attractive as well. (Unrequited, what can you do?) But the point is, just like people like animals or colors or hairstyles better, people can be more attracted to one race over another. As long as it's not crossing the line into discrimination and nobody is getting hurt, I think it's ok. Just because you're attracted doesn't make it love. You love who you love regardless of any preference you have.

  • The only reason I want to date a Japanese person is honestly to submerse myself into their culture when I move to Japan. I also want to know the language and be part of the nation and their nationality. Now I should be clear I mean a Japanese citizen, I am not speaking about stereotypical Asian ethnicity. I'm not sure how many lesbians there are in Japan though
