It also really depends on what the guy is like, though.

Some player-types have no problem with being all over you on the first date, some jguys are chatterboxes, and some are totally shy with girls and dead on a date.

Japanese dating ettiquette

Going back to this friend of mine, he couldn't take it any more and asked the American girl out after she kissed him, but was turned down. K: By staring I sort of meant the gaze someone gives another when they want to kiss them. I actually read that in a book a long time ago, but whenever I'm talking to someone Japanese(in person or on the phone) and they go silent for a long time I often feel nervous. I was once very shocked at being casually grabbed and kissed by a strange guy who I just met. Sometimes in the west, people go out on a date to see if they are interested.

The fact that 2 people can casually kiss was a completely foreign concept to him. In the US people often stare into each others eyes with blank expressions when they want to kiss someone, or are looking for a "connection". Japanese often go out on a date when they already are interested. Good luck to you.^_^ We were alone, one on one at a restaurant. Of course sometimes a guy will want to show off his salary and ability to take care of his girl by insisting to pay all.

I've also known couples where the girl pays for everything- Japanese guys can be spoiled!

Don't be insulted if he doesn't do things you would consider "gentlemanly" from a western guy (hold doors, carry bags, etc.), some Japanese guys just weren't raised to think of it.

I know Japanese people aren't too into touching, and the last time I hugged my Japanese friend he became a bit jumpy and promptly exclaimed that Japanese friends don't "do that" and that it was embarassing.

Don't restrict yourself to the questions I posted, please list any ideals and traditions related to dating.Japanese dating is one-to-one, anything else is pretty much cheating--that includes a girl going out alone with a guy-friend shopping while in a relationship. Traditional Japanese fo not show much addection in public but alone, couples can be very affectionate. In US this was seen as "hanging out" but it was a date for Japanese (He was also Japanese). It was a date even though we never touched or hugged or "made out" after. If he does, then fine but at least offer to pay for some cost and let him have the option of turning you down for it.It's pretty clear-cut, and don't hug your date if there is no chemistry--it'll only confuse the hell out of him. My guy and I often look lovingly in each others' eyes. As for the going out with a opposite sex friend, if you have another guy for a relationship, it just does not seem proper to go alone with someone else who is unrelated to you. Hugging and casual kissing is not done in Japan like it is in US.I apologize if all this is very disorganized, but I hope you've found something useful. It was a date even though we never touched or hugged or "made out" after. If he does, then fine but at least offer to pay for some cost and let him have the option of turning you down for it.Again, not all western guy's are 'touchy feely' like that - but a lot of the western girls will think you're not interested if you don't make any moves.From what I know already the Japanese do not display affection to one-another in public and generally avoid eye-contact when speaking.
