Japan: Men Disinterested in Romance Are Rising

The portal Sugoren published an article pointing out that the number of men disinterested in romance is on the rise in Japan. The portal describes these types of men not as those with fear of starting a relationship, but as those who simply consider that it is not something necessary.

«Did you know that in recent years the number of men who are not interested in women has increased? There are many reasons for this, but one thing is clear: men don’t want a girlfriend. And the number of men who share these characteristics continues to increase with each passing year. As a result of this increase, men of this type are now not rare in the world.».

«Known by the term “Onnagirai (女 嫌 い)”, it simply means that these men do not like women, but this does not mean that they are homosexual. It means that you could be in love with a woman, but for one reason or another, you have an aversion to women. In particular, adult women tend to avoid these types of men, which continues to generate more and more cases».

«Men who dislike women are often referred to as “Fast Food Guys (zesshoku-kei danshi).” It is similar to the terms “Herbivorous Boys” and “Carnivorous Boys”, but they have very different meanings. The “Herbivorous Boys” are men who are interested in romance, but don’t have the guts to try it. On the other hand, “Carnivore Boys” are those who actively seek romance or carnal desire. However, “Fast Food Guys” are not interested in women, hate them, or are not interested in romance. They consider it unnecessary in their lives».

«Faced with the rise in the number of men who are averse to women, a 2015 survey by the National Population and Social Security Research Institute revealed that about 70 percent of single men between the ages of 18 and 34 in Japan they have no partner. A survey conducted around 1987 showed that the number of men who did not have a partner was approximately 50 percent, so there has been a considerable increase. In addition, of the 70 percent of single men who do not have a partner, approximately 40 percent say they have no sexual experience with the opposite sex. The number of men who have never been in a relationship or their first experience with a woman is increasing every year and is no longer unusual».

«In addition, according to a survey by the National Institute for Population and Social Security Research, of the approximately 70 percent of unmarried men who do not have a girlfriend, about 30 percent say they do not need one. If you don’t want a girlfriend, it means that you are not interested in a relationship and that you are happy living alone. It is very likely that the number of men who do not see the benefits of dating women will continue to grow».
