Growing up in Japan, I thought it’s completely normal to work all day long with lots of overtime.
What makes me sad is that it’s not because we’re workaholics or passionate about our jobs, but because work in Japan is extremely inefficient.
The majority of Japanese men admit that they’re never saying the “3 little words” (I love you).
In many Western countries, the majority of men show their affection directly through words and action (hugging, kissing) – even in public.You’ll keep asking yourself : “Does this guy really like me?” Many Western men are quite outgoing and communicative, while many Japanese men don’t talk much in general, let alone in a relationship.Thus it’s tremendously important to focus on non-verbal subtle signs, like shy eye contact or by behaving a bit awkward.
Japanese language itself is quite a subtle language.If you’re a girl who doesn’t talk much either, chances are the conversation gets very awkward or stressful, even if you speak Japanese fluently.
