Dating cultures in america


In Japan, Valentine’s Day chocolate gifts are purchased by girls and given to the boys. Yes, you read that right! In return, the girls receive… nothing. However, if you’re a guy reading this and you’re thinking that the Japanese men have got it easy, be warned that exactly one month later, the Japanese celebrate a similar follow-up holiday called "White Day". This time around, the chocolate giving and receiving is reversed; the guys have to buy the girls white chocolate if their feelings are mutual. All seems fair right? That is, until you learn that men are expected to spend twice as much on White Day as the girls do on Valentine's Day. And you thought you could get away with it…

Japan, and as I understand it most of Asia, has a very different dating culture than that of the West. I can best describe it as courting with initial ambiguity. Things also move much more slowly than in the west.
