But before I go further, I’d like to share a comment someone posted (that resonates with me): d that you are looking not just for “exotic goods” but for someone that you will love as a whole (not just because of their ethnicity).
If you want to make some money on the side, not worry about putting yourself out there, and meet Japanese men, teaching private English lessons is the job for you.
Many people do private English lessons in Japan (especially in college/if they’re young). Most are just meeting up with the “student” (businessman, housewife, teenager, etc) and talk for an hour and talk in English. A lot of my friends used the website Hello Sensei (you make a profile, list your price, etc, and students contact you directly).
I had a friend who started dating one of her “students” from the same site- he was a company worker and supposedly a really nice guy. Some Japanese men also travel (alone) and others choose to live in a hotel while they are apartment hunting/taking a break from “life.” I stayed in a capsule hotel for three days a couple of months ago (I wanted to see what it would be like to actually live in a capsule hotel) and chatted with a couple of people in the common room.
Another friend went on a couple of dates with one of the people I had met with earlier (who left after finding out I was in a relationship) – she taught him English for a month before they started going on dates instead of lessons. But it’s also the reason I don’t teach private English lessons anymore. I mostly ignored them because I wasn’t feeling social and just wanted to blog – but if you’re not a jerk (like me), you probably have a good chance of actually meeting people at your guest house.
They can be pricey (depending on the sport), but I highly recommend joining a martial arts team.
Members often get together outside of practice (or hang out in between breaks), making it a great way to get closer to a Japanese man you are potentially interested in dating.If you dress nicely and stand in front of a sign, in a matter of time, someone will come up to you and help you out. Sometime they are a young Japanese female adult who studied abroad; sometimes they are a young, attractive Japanese man who wants to help out a lost foreigner. If not, thank them for their help and follow their directions (and come back a bit later and stand in front of the sign).I know this because I’ve gotten lost a number of times and have been approached/hit on by a guy trying to help me find my way in this city (and by the way, do I need a tour guide? They’re usually very nice when I politely decline and tell them I’m married.I also know a couple that met at random on the train, started talking, hit it off, and are still together, two years later. If you don’t mind dating and/or ‘going steady’ with a Japanese man who is married, you shouldn’t have any problems. I wouldn’t do it (personally), but I have a number of friends who have.To increase the chances of being “nanpa-ed,” make lots of eye contact and smile. Take a train together rather than a cab, so you know where you’re going (if you’re going back to his place).
