I recently found out there are so many funny dating customs in this world, so I thought I’d share a few of them with you. When you think of dating customs, most of us think of a guy asking a girl out on a date. They go out for a nice dinner, drinks or maybe just a quick lunch. The guy pays the bill, drops her off at home and there you go: you had your first date. If you want to know more about dating customs in other countries, keep on reading, because I have some interesting, and sometimes funny dating customs for you.

1. Japan

There are a few funny dating customs in Japan. For example, there is no such thing as casually dating and the main objective of dating is the actual marriage. Additionally, where in most modern countries it’s accepted to start dating when you’re in high school, in Japan, dating is saved for their college years. But one of the funniest customs is that women are to buy guys white chocolate on Valentine’s Day, while the guys just sit back and receive. One month later, they celebrate White Day, where the guy, should he be interested in the girl he received chocolate from on Valentine’s Day, must give the girl twice as much chocolate. The horror of having to wait one month to find out if he’s into you…

Josefin, thank you for your comment. If you hadn't I would have commented exactly what you said. I am Japanese and I am usually not offended by stereotypes but very disappointed that AllWomenStalk has this article up... 😢
