This is a screencap of a Japanese show about Omiai [お見合い]. Omiai is where single (usually single ^^;) men and women get together in hope of finding the right partner. A couple would chat with each other for a while and then split up to chat with other couples.
Omiai is a very common over here and you may have already learnt about it in Anime or J-Dramas.
Back to the topic of what Japanese women are looking for in a man. While this lady certainly doesn't represent all Japanese women, its interesting to see what her requirements are which are as follows...
- Smart and tall
- Good looking
- Can earn more than her money wise
- Takes the lead
- [li] Can drink loads of alcohol without getting drunk
So how many did you score? If you scored 7 then you are mister perfect and should get your booty along to Japan now.[/li]
As a teenager, I was looking for the perfect girl like the ones that are in eroge and anime - cute, big anime eyes (both pairs), cuddly, kind nado nado ("nado nado" [などなど] means "etcetera etcetera").
I finally came to my senses and realized that if I continued looking for a completely perfect girl then before I knew it I would be a balding old man with a few Candy Girls in my possession (which look perfect.)
Are you looking for a perfect partner? What do you look for when seeking that person who you're going to spend the rest of your life with?
