Japanese dating and marriage traditions
It is common for Bulgarians to only date Bulgarians, especially in Bulgaria, because the country is not as culturally diverse as other countries.
There has even been talk about married men being more desirable employees for companies in Japan (maybe because they have more incentive to go to work every day even when they are not treated well…) So what to do when you haven’t run into your Great Love yet, even though your 30’s (or 40’s) are looming, and you don’t want to end up alone?
Here, it is not the boys who often make the first step of asking girls to go on a date with them, rather the girls take this part and they also take the responsibility of paying for the date.
The most common dating places preferred by couples are dinner parties, barbecues, or the beach. In Finland for example, groups as large as thirty teens take part in an event together, such as going to the movies.
Because women have these traditional roles they expect high respect from men.
These women have strong minds and are not afraid to speak their mind and be blunt.
