A Lesson in Love: Reviewing Japanese and Indonesian Dating Culture in Academic Literature
Dating practices can be observed across cultures. Many studies have highlighted the differences between Asian and Euro-North American dating cultures. Comparisons between different Asian countries, however, are more limited. This paper aims to address the gap by comparing Japanese and Indonesian dating cultures by reviewing the existing academic literature around the subject. This comparison will highlight the similarities and differences of Japanese and Indonesian dating practices to identify possible challenges they may posit in intercultural dating practiced by people from the two countries.
