You will have to work hard and prepare for the inevitable rejections, but that is a small price to pay for having a cute Japanese woman on your arm one day.
Should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear.
Even today, only a small fraction of the population has signed up to an online dating site as most Japanese believe it is more acceptable to meet potential mates via the traditional methods of mutual friends, organizations, work, school, etc.
However, I do believe this will change and internet dating will become more mainstream with time.
Sign up Process You could be signed up and chatting with Japan Cupid singles in the time it took you to read that last paragraph.
Begin with your name, gender, email and a password, or sync up your Facebook account.
Due to its targeted niche, Japan Cupid is not as large of a service as other Asian dating sites (e.g.
Asian Dating), and finding English-speaking members seems more difficult here than on other niche sites.
Overall, if you’re looking for a Japanese match, you’ll benefit from using this site.
You can message freely with premium members, but, between other Standard members, you’re limited to “showing interest”, sending blocked, unreadable messages, and adding profiles to your favorites.
None of these features lead to conversation, unless of course one of you upgrades to Gold or Platinum.
Japan Cupid went live in 2005, as a niche dating website under the Cupid Media Network.
As part of this network of over 30 niche dating sites, Japan Cupid benefits from a simple, clean website design and useful, battle-tested features.
