A Valentines Day Idea Of Dating A Japanese Man
When I started dating my Japanese boyfriend, as I told you before for like the nth times, I didn’t have an idea of how it’ll work. We’re officially in a relationship on the first week of February, so it’s near Valentines Day! (OMG)!
I read some articles on how to spend Valentine’s day in a long-distance relationship.
- You can plan a movie night together.
It’s now easier to watch a movie even if you’re far away. Facebook and Line messenger has access to Facebook and Youtube videos. You can also watch Netflix together.
- Eating together.
Eating together while your partner is on the other side of the world is also a great idea to have a date on Valentine’s day. You can prepare your favorite foods and have a romantic time eating together while video chatting.
- Sending gifts.
One of the common things to do on valentine’s day is sending gifts. There are so many options on how to send gifts to your loved ones, even if they live far from you.
I even searched a great shop to order and delivered it to his address. If you’re interested in sending cute anime gifts to your loved one, check out this amazing shop I discovered during the time. They can deliver worldwide, and you can pick various items.
I expected that I would receive a gift from him on Valentine’s Day because that’s what I imagine as I read those articles. But to my surprise, I didn’t receive anything on that exact date. Instead, I received a simple “Happy Valentines Day" message from him. (Hahaha)
Considering how unromantic my boyfriend is, I am not disappointed besides I already knew their culture. Japanese culture is very different from the rest of the world during Valentine’s. The girls are usually the ones who will give chocolates to the guys while, during the white day around March, the guys will give back the chocolate they received on Valentine’s day.
At the end of the day, love doesn’t measure how many gifts you receive or give. All you have to do is to understand and respect each other. (I still received a late Valentine’s gift that time. Hahaha)
