Japan Cupid Shy Ladies

Japanese ladies have a reputation for being a little shy, and a little reserved. But I've noticed that many of the ladies contacting me on the Japan Cupid dating site haven't even uploaded a photo of themselves.

So what's going on? Japan is of course one of the wealthiest nations on the planet, and it's difficult to imagine many ladies not owning a digital camera or mobile phone with photo uploading features. Maybe Japanese ladies are just to shy to post their photos. I know that Japanese ladies often prefer to use an introduction agency rather than a publically visible dating site.

Another possibility is that they don't want anyone to know that they're looking for a foreign husband. I get the impression that having a foreign husband isn't such a status symbol in Japan as it is in China. Chinese people tend to be much more wealth and money orientated, and to many Chinese ladies what is a better sign of wealth than a Western husband on their arm? I've also found that Chinese ladies tend to be a lot more confident than Japanese ladies. Chinese ladies usually love to get their photograph taken, so when they come to register for a site like Cherry Blossoms or Chinese Love Links then they have no problem finding photos of themselves.

Of course there is a darker explanation, and that is that photo-less ladies on Japan Cupid are simply scam ladies. Whatever they are, I'm steering well clear of them, and I suggest you be wary as well.
