First, like most dating apps all over the world, users are verified through their Facebook profile, so it’s not easy to create fake accounts.And Japan is really embracing social media, especially after both Linked In and Facebook helped families find each other after the 2011 earthquake.If you’ve been Japan for more than 5 seconds and had any interaction with the opposite sex here, you’ll no doubt have already experienced some “Lost in translation” style mishaps from smashing against the language barrier and cultural differences.Japanese culture is at times pretty much the exact reverse of western culture.In other cultures, group dating is becoming more popular as a safe alternative to single dating (especially blind dating), also helping to ease tension, because both parties will feel more comfortable having the company of their friends.

The venue is usually a restaurant, an izakaya, or anywhere people can eat, drink and make a bit of noise.Group dating is a modern pattern for dating where a group of single men and a group of single women organise a night out, with the hope of forming romantic partnerships.It is most popular in Japan, where it is known as gōkon.The term gōkon comes from the Japanese words konpa (a party for members of a single group, class, or club) and gōdō ("together", "combination").
