Dating norms in other countries
Often I would have men telling me this after I had already quickly slept with several normal, local women, with normal dating histories (not wild party girls, sluts, or 'exceptions to the rule').
I never want to rub it in a guy's face, so usually I will just say "Well, the girls here seem pretty normal and not too uptight to me." I am not the only guy this happens to.
I've done quite a bit of travel and lived in a variety of places, all very different from each other, with people who were all quite different too.

Many young singles in Japan are turning to a classic tradition called omiai.
This is a dating style where a professional matchmaker assists the suitor by looking into the background of potential matches and assisting with dating arrangements.
Before the potential couple even meets, the matchmaker makes sure they are well-suited for one another and even exchanges pictures between the singles and their families.
Of course, matchmakers have been around since time immemorial and these type of arranged matches were often used for political alliances between countries and royal families.
