Do you often get told that your personality stinks? Do you feel yourself that you don't get along with people in general and because of this you are worried that you wont find a partner?
Well you got two options - stick with 2D/Candy Girls or go to Japan because there are a ton of women waiting for you and as you will discover - personality does not matter at all.

The screencaps above are from a TV program which went around Shibuya asking girls what they would rather choose - a really ugly guy with loadsa money or a really good looking poor guy. The word for "really ugly" is "Busaiku" [ブサイク].

Above: And the results are clear - 70% of Shibuya girls prefer you to be good looking and don't care if you are poor.

But lets look at the ladies who do care if you are poor.
This woman below is a member of a Omiai club where she and other women get together with men - both sides looking for a partner. She says "I was horrified when I heard that he only earned 4,000,000 yen (39,662 USD) per annum.

Below: She goes on to say how she couldn't even buy make up with that money (laughs).
Below: "...and that would be unacceptable..."
Below: "A part time job for me is unthinkable."
Below: "No way I'm taking a part time job."
Below: This woman is searching for a partner online.
Below: She filters her search results for men who earn more than 15,000,000 yen (148,735 USD) per annum.
Below: There are 41 results for men who have not married before and earn more than 15 million yen.
Below: When asked how she gets the men to pay attention to her...
Below: She says the secret is all in her profile photo...
Below: Another woman looking for a partner.
Below: Her requirements are that he must be taller than 180cm and also earn more than 10,000,000 yen (99,157 USD) per annum.

So you see - does not matter if you don't have any personality - just as long as you are either good looking or has the monies.
