Men of any nationality may join TMA, but experience indicates that, for economic and cultural reasons, Japanese women are most interested in men from economically advanced Western countries like the United States, Canada, Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand.Men from other countries may of course join, but they should be aware that their chances of success may be lower.At e Harmony, we are committed to helping Japanese singles find the best possible match.We narrow down a world of possibilities to a personalized A-list of compatible singles, and with over 44 million users, it's never been easier to find love that lasts. We know it can be challenging to put yourself out there and find other highly compatible singles in Japan.Then, we'll begin distributing your profile to our women clients, and you'll begin receiving a new set of women's profiles every month.No man's profile will appear on the TMA website without permission from the man.
Even today, only a small fraction of the population has signed up to an online dating site as most Japanese believe it is more acceptable to meet potential mates via the traditional methods of mutual friends, organizations, work, school, etc.
Should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear.
Another clue of a pretender is a woman who has a poorly written profile.
However, I do believe this will change and internet dating will become more mainstream with time.
Despite what I said in the paragraph above, Japan does have a couple of online dating sites that are worthwhile and have a decent number of members.
TMA is a postal mail & email based matchmaking system.
