“I got tired of regular bars with old women.” They admitted that the uniforms are a big part of the attraction. “The uniforms make them look one and a half times cuter than they actually are.” This is Japan’s shady “JK” or “high school dating” business.

(“Joshi kosei” means “high school girl” in Japanese, and the English initials JK are universally used here to describe the practice.) Although some cafes like this are relatively innocent — those that employ high school girls must close by 10 p.m., which means the men aren’t too late getting home to their wives — there is a large part of this world that is not.

(Ko Sasaki/For The Washington Post)High school dating?In Hong Kong I found the men, especially Chinese, to be more traditional – asking what kind of food I preferred, opening doors, and almost always picking up the bill for dinner. My friend had found success using dating apps, and has now been in a relationship for six months.Over the years, I spoke about dating and relationships with many men in my life – my father, uncles, cousins, and colleagues, who shared their philosophies about the sexes. As a first-generation Chinese-American, I was born and raised in the United States, before moving to live and work in Hong Kong, where, for a few years, I lived with my then 89-year-old grandmother. I downloaded the apps, posted a headshot, and filled in the essentials. In the coming days I received numerous “hi” and “hellos” only to be met with silence when I thanked them and asked for their name.I find it really ironic that Korea has managed to create media that connects with and excites the masses in a way that living in Korea …just doesn’t.In fact, Korea is far more inhospitable to foreigners than Japan is.“Men should take care of the big things, such as the house, the car, and trips, and women can find a way to pay for other things,” my father once told me. In my profile I said I was seeking a long-term relationship: no one-night stands. One person who replied seemed nice enough, asking me how I was doing, and whether I’d like to go to dinner. “Well it’s all the weightlifting and eating right,” he said, as he wolfed down a plate of buffalo wings.
