Dating and meeting parents
It’s also true that some old guys don’t like foreigners.
They just don’t want their little girl to be seeing a foreign devil.
Also, let them know you’re studying Japanese and learning about Japan – oh, and you LOVE Japan!
Society's perception of international romances in Japan appears to be that of resigned acceptance, so do not be shocked if there is opposition on the part of some Japanese fathers and/or mothers concerning their daughter marrying a foreigner.
It’s not that they don’t like you; they just have no experience with foreigners and, like most Japanese people, they don’t know what to expect.Before meeting the parents, understanding Japanese dating customs and traditions would be of great advantage to you, if not vital.
