From the article:

The average Japanese couple now produces just 1.32 children...

The initial anecdote given in the article seems to imply that the men are failing to pound the women properly but, reading on, it appears that Japanese women are just becoming mouthier and more of a pain in the ass - just like American women. So any single guys who take your advice are probably going to get over there and find that the humble and quiet Japanese women that we know and love from Godzilla movies are gone and have been replaced by fat American-esque swine who want money, shopping, and full voting rights.

The world sinks ever deeper into The Pit.

Some of the women over there would settle for a guy to treat them more like equals and care more about them as a person and a friend. What the women really hate are the guys who want a housekeeper, cook, and mother. A Japanese guy who didn't look too ugly, and had a decent job, who treated women better would get plenty of sex and or relationships.

As someone who didn't want to leave his dorm, facing an indefinite amount of time with no private room, it would be fantastic if these things existed in the US.

They do.

There's plenty of "no-tell motels" with hourly rates.

If not yet, turning Japanese. (I really think so.)

Many young Japanese women live carefree lives, staying at home with their parents, paying little if any rent, letting their mothers cook their meals, clean their rooms and do their laundry.

A nation full of Mommies girls, mooching off of parents. No desire for a life, so they don't get a real life. No ambition. And they are big hipocrits...

"Men expect women to stay home and take care of them." Not likely

So instead, the girls stay at home and expect their Moms to take care of them. I guess they don't care about the previous generation of women, who learned to work long and constantly, unlike them.

Man there are some funny quotes from this article...

They keep waiting for the perfect man -- a rich handsome guy who either helps with the housework or can afford to hire help. And I am waiting for those "enhancement pills" I took to start working. Just kidding... I didn't expect them to work.

"The good men are all married," writer Junko Sakai says. "Those left behind are all nerds or without jobs or violent or not nice-looking." Oh no! The horror! You may have to "settle" for a normal guy! A non-movie star looking, "does something with computers" kind of guy! Run away!

Oh man... sad but true.

"They keep waiting for the perfect man -- a rich handsome guy who either helps with the housework or can afford to hire help."

Yeah, this is funny. Must be the parasite singles who refuse to give up the designer clothes who expect this. Now if they'd spend half their dead-end job wages on themselves, and contribute the other half to what the man in bringing home, maybe they could get their own place.

Given the state of things there, if I were rich and handsome, I wouldn't bother helping around the house. Would I pay for a maid? Maybe. Would I pay for a maid and for my woman to buy all her clothes and accessories? FUCK NO. Methinks the rich handsome men figured this out.

Japan. Oy. Might as well be Neptune.

But, then again, I live in Pittsburgh, a bottom-10 city for singles. Anything would be a step up. Anybody in Billings, Montana looking to hire a C++/VB guy?

From the article:
Rather than risk rejection or summon the energy to maintain a modern relationship, many Japanese men simply pay for affection in the country's ubiquitous hostess bars and brothels.

Others prefer virtual women online to the real kind. "They seem to find the relationship cumbersome. ... You have to be attentive to your partner," says Kunio Kitamura, president of the Japan Family Planning Association's Family Planning Clinic. "A quick way to get satisfaction is so-called cybersex."

Okay, what this means is that the parents' basement-squatting, slashdot.jp-loving, "wack-a-mole," pantyhose nerds have taken over, and their entire country and culture will be wiped out in one generation.

I'm going to get rich, I tells ya! By simply combining seemingly ordinary [gov.on.ca] items [howstuffworks.com] , adding in the appropriate software (maybe something "live" anime [altavista.com] ?), I will sign up all 100 million Japanese males, age 18-45, for a paltry sum of $10/month!!! I'll encase myself in gold, I tells ya!!!

I can not get laid very easily here, or back in the states. The only upside I can see is that I would be not getting laid with hot asian chicks. And there are enough of them to not sleep with me in the Seattle metro area anyways...

redhead-kitten (775093) | more than 10 years ago | (#9334282)

*sigh*

Red, IIRC, you've got some pretty stiff standards. Unfortunately, there are not too many women that just want gratuitous sex (no ties) and are built like Barbie!

Face it, you may have to change your standards a wee bit.

"you've got some pretty stiff standards"

Ummm... I'm not going touch that one, for obvious reasons.

"women that just want gratuitous sex (no ties) and are built like Barbie!"

I don't think that last part is strictly a requirement. I'd take a woman who just wants gratuitous sex and is built like, say, Halle Berry. Does that help? :)

Perfect timing (1)

I'm going to Japan (Tokyo-san area) in September time for a fortnights vacation...It's costing me two months wages (due to the flight etc), but by sounds of things it'll be worth it ;) . Only downside is Japan's got a very strict immigration policy.

"The good men are all married," writer Junko Sakai says. "Those left behind are all nerds or without jobs or violent or not nice-looking."

Hey, I have a job - I'm in with a chance!

However, nothing can be done about those other three problem areas. And even the job is a nerd-ly one.
