Hot White Women In Japan Can't Give It Away

Phuket Island, Thailand

Reannon Muth files a Vagabondish report about attractive young white women working in Japan who can't get a date to save their lives. Excerpt:
If you’ve ever visited Asia, you’ve likely seen the pale, rail-thin, greasy-haired white boy walking hand-in-hand with a perfectly made-up, mini-skirt wearing Asian chick. This would never happen anywhere else in the world. Because everywhere else, Barbie ends up with Ken, not his underemployed, socially-awkward, samurai-sword-collecting neighbor, Kevin. But in Asia, dating rules defy all logic or evolutionary law. In Asia, the nerd is king.
Knife Tricks readers are already familiar with this phenomenon.

I'm not sure where you got that picture, but it definitely is not Jason Giambi.

My ad hoc committee of Red Sox-loving photo examiners unambiguously came down with "Jason Giambi." And these Red Sox people are not to be toyed with. See Mystic River.

yeah, like who would want to go out with some bitchy, stuck-up American girl anyway? I want to date something in a pants, I'll go gay. sheesh!

Not that simple, of course.
There are some awfully hot Russian women in Tokyo these days, and they have no problems getting dates (I speak Russian and have dated a Russian woman in Tokyo...). But you can tell they're not Americans even from a distance because the Russians aren't overweight, and the Russian women dress up. So they can compete with the Japanese.

And yes, the nerd type (think Bill Gates) does get more dates in Asia than in the US. Not sure why that's a bad thing.

The problem is that American women are known the world over as being self-centered and demanding princesses who feel like men should be kissing up to their posteriors.

Not so in Europe, and most assuredly not true in Japan.

Jason Giambi is an average Western guy? Multi millionaire professional athletes get the ladies wherever they go.

I would say hot white women in Japan can't give it away to non-Japanese guys. I met a very attractive blonde girl (in the US) that lived in Japan for a few years who dated a few Japanese guys and hated it for the same reasons that Japanese girls hate Japanese guys -- they treat women like crap. She dated the first white guy she could find who would date her.

American women will - apparently - NEVER get it.

Men don't want a "subservient" woman - but we sure as hell don't want some bitter harpy who hates men, either.

Those women know how to be WOMEN, they like their men to be MEN -- and as Fred Reed says "and the twain shall meet at the drop of a hat."

Their culture hasn't told them all men are morons and taught them to hate us - yet.

I'm to the point I don't sugar-coat it any more. As soon as some caustic witch starts with the "every man I've ever known has been..." routine, I respond "Seems like the common denominator here is *YOU*!

And, as any man with a REAL woman for a wife will tell you, you've misjudged them and their alleged "subservience" as well. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

In response to the comments on Russian women: IMHO they dress up just to leave the house. Not to compete with other women. It's what they do. They say it makes them feel good. Whatever it is, I like it. And at the height of this vanity is Odessa, Ukraine. You can just hear them coming by the clackety clack of their 10cm heels as they somehow gracefully glide over the cobblestones.

In response to Dedicated_Dad: What's you've said is correct in general. But the American woman in Japan might fit that description perfectly and they still wouldn't give her a chance due to the stereotype.

Also, I can't speak about all men in Japan but from the two white women I've talked to who have lived there, both were treated very poorly at times for no apparent reason.

It was almost as if the guy was intentionally doing it to see if she'd react like the stereotypical screaming American girl who thinks she gets to control everything, etc. But that wasn't the case, so basically he just hurt her feelings badly for no reason.

Basically just a case of two cultures having trouble getting along... which isn't helped when some people are stupid enough to believe all stereotypes and feel the need to test them.
