Your relationship together should not be based on the fact that you already speak semi-fluent Japanese. Don't Correct their English unless they ask you to. The mistakes people make in Culture Shock relationships is that they make a big deal out of the differences, and this plants the idea that you really are too different to be together.
Yes, it is a funny show, but watching that together is just weird. Don't go to Asian restaurants unless they suggest it first. Showing an obsession with wanting to visit Asian restaurants all the time indicates you are more interested in his or her background and skin colour than you are in them as a person. Treating people differently because of their ethnic background in insensitive and will result in them feeling like you don't really care about them as a person.
BONUS TIP - When introducing them to your parents, don't mention what their ethnic background is. Mention what they do for a living or what they are studying in school - the same things you would do for any other person. Show that you care about who they are and that will show you are serious about a relationship with them as a person.
If you’ve been Japan for more than 5 seconds and had any interaction with the opposite sex here, you’ll no doubt have already experienced some “Lost in translation” style mishaps from smashing against the language barrier and cultural differences.
Japanese culture is at times pretty much the exact reverse of western culture.
Without even trying I managed to get another Asian girl hooked on me and wanting to seriously date me. With White girls, you need both social and sexual confidence and you need to man up and show it right away the first time you meet them or be forever in the friend zone.
However, with Asian girls, it’s a completely different game if you want to seriously date an Asian girl.How can you tell if a girl/guy likes you in a country where ‘yes’ can mean ‘no’?Or read peoples’ emotions where pretty much no-one wears their heart on their sleeve? Meeting the expectations of your significant other may not always be easy.But add on top of that cultural differences and you got a whole new pandora’s box.This connection will cement the idea that you two really do have things in common and are not so different as society would like you to believe. Do NOT Get Language Lessons - Honestly, this is one of the worst things you can do. In fact, don't assume they even speak Japanese unless they say they do. Don't Make A Big Deal of your Language Skills - Lets pretend you already know how to speak Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, etc.
