This sounds a bit creepy but it’s not so much telling someone you love them but rather the Japanese way of letting them know you like them and asking them out.

The world of dating and relationships can be tough to navigate.
In this article, I want to talk about a few major differences I saw between Japanese and American dating cultures.
Among Japanese teenagers the most basic way of starting to date someone is by giving them a “kokuhaku” or love confession.
For starters, a first generation Asian American may think about his/her heritage in a slightly different light than someone whose family has been in the US for generations.
(For tips on dating Asians in America, check out Asian Dating Tips for Asian Singles.) Hands down, family is always an incredibly important factor for Asians, whether they have just immigrated to the US or Canada, or were born and raised there.This is a universal rule, of course, but Asians truly value and respect their family’s opinions and if you fail to make a good impression with the family, the chances of going on another date are slim. Are they still quite traditional or have they adopted a more western lifestyle and perspective?In Korea, for example, a parent’s 60th birthday is quite a big deal that warrants a great celebration.Celebrate Fourth of July with us by welcoming a group of 6 students and 2 professors from Appalachian State University in North Carolina.They will conduct a fun event with you called “Speed Dating with American Culture,” a fast and fun activity where you will be able to sit at stations with these students and get to know different aspects of American culture – such as food, music, campus life, American jokes, sports and much more. Be prepared to meet some great people, learn about American culture and have a lot of fun!Olivier trusts me, and we both trust our friend(s), who would never make a pass at me.
