Asian Dating in Japanese Culture
In Japanese’ culture kissing your date before being officially in a relationship is frowned upon let alone casual dating or hookup.
Your Asian date would introduce you to his or her parent if you’re dating with marriage in mind.
Japanese value privacy a lot, so don’t be surprised if your partner doesn’t share how much money they make or where they are throughout the day.
Your Japanese date also wouldn’t express their feeling a lot and mostly use nonverbal communication.
Asian Dating in Indian Culture
In the past Indian parents would play the role of a matchmaker and introduce their children to one another, then young Indians would meet each other a few time and eventually get married.
Nowadays some young Indians have more freedom and have taken matters into their own hands regarding Asian dating and choosing partners.
Like Japanese’ culture, in India dating happens only with the purpose of marriage.
