  • Subbenly. Sorry one more time! Suddenly I am asking you this

  • but have you had a romantic encounter recently? - A romantic one? - Not at all

  • no. I had a mediocre one. - A mediocre encounter? What?

  • Well I didn't expect it to happen. - Where was that?

  • It was back at home. - Were you happy about it?

  • - I was happy to see him. - He was an old childhood friend.

  • I see so you have lots of shared memories. - we do

  • wow I am so jealous! Now comes the question

  • recently abroad dating apps have become

  • popular. Have you heard? The famous one is called Tinder

  • and - I am using it. - You do? How

  • did you start using it? - A friend said it's fun try it

  • and I tried it out like that and thought it was fun

  • And how is it? - I found friends over it

  • In Japan I often hear Tinder is used to find friends rather than dating

  • Is that so? - My friend said it too

  • She installed it because she was looking for friends. She has many job location changes

  • and won't have friends in those areas. If she has free time she will look

  • for friends in the area. That's it. - And

  • do you still have those friends? - I don't

  • Have you met people over it? - I have. About two

  • But only two. - Boys or Girls. - Boys.

  • So if you're visiting Tokyo and don't have friends you search for friends over it?

  • Yeah that's how I use it. And to kill time

  • messaging when I have time or meeting up.

  • Like that. - Does that not count as date? - Not for me

  • Oh So was there romance? - No

  • If I meet boys and they seem like they want more,

  • I won't meet them again. - If they have ulterior motives you won't meet them again

  • Yeah. - Did you have a bad image of dating apps before?

  • I had a negative image yeah.

  • I thought that all people there have ulterior motives but

  • many people are using it and foreigners are on it too.

  • It wasn't so bad

  • Have you tried using it. - Do you have friends who use it?

  • Not in my circle of friends.

  • Do you have a negative image of dating apps - Yeah

  • meeting strangers... they might be lying... it's scary

  • I see. So online people are a problem - Yeah

  • There might be people to trust but I am too scared

  • I often hear it's hard to meet people in Japan

  • so how do people meet their partners? - Go drinking

  • in bars or get them introduced by friends

  • to you. - Yeah friends friends or becoming friendly

  • with people in a local bar. - So people prefer it directly. - Yeah

  • I think that's more trustworthy. - I see

  • Have you had a romantic encounter recently? - Not really

  • no. - Me neither. We are going to an all girls university

  • All of our friends are girls. - These phone apps

  • where you date people, are popular abroad. Have you seen those?

  • I have seen my friend use it. - What app was it?

  • She was swiping and when they matched

  • they could message each other. - Could that be tinder? - Maybe

  • It has fire as symbol. - That one! - A friend of mine used it

  • and she found her boyfriend over it. - oh

  • Over a dating app? - Yeah - She openly told other she met him

  • over a dating app? - She only told it to people who would understand that

  • Some people said things like "Urgh you used that" to her

  • and that's why she

  • divided who she would tell this to.

  • - What makes you worried about apps? - Whom to trust

  • online and if they are telling the truth

  • It's not a good idea to meet strangers easily and

  • you have to select the right app for it or you might get into trouble.

  • So Japanese girls are scared that they

  • might meet a different person than on the profile. - It's scary and how do we know

  • it really is that person? Anyone can put in a picture of a famous person

  • Do you think this will become a trend in Japan?

  • I think it's trending right now, compared to before

  • it's become easier to use them, similar to other SNS

  • but not quite the same. - It's trending and

  • I hope they will work on becoming saver to use

  • in the future. Then I would

  • actually try it too.

  • Japanese people use tinder to make friends is I think a

  • statement I've heard before and it seems to be that that seems to be a thing

  • for certain people, at least that first girl that we had in our interview that surprised me then again

  • she said that if she goes to a place where she doesn't know anyone she sees if she

  • knows anyone and if anyone wants to hang out. It's a way of

  • hanging out with someone not being along but NOT for dating. Once she feels that

  • the guys want something else out of that she just doesn't interact anymore

  • so she is purely looking for friendship which I heard before and I found it

  • interesting because the original purpose of Tinder is not making friends...

  • but hey if it works out for her it works out for her. Also story of a girl

  • finding her boyfriend over tinder, I think again that is a rare case...

  • I've heard... you hear those stories but then maybe that is again my

  • image that I have of Tinder. To me, what I thought that Tinder is more of

  • an app for hooking up with random strangers? But then again

  • I heard many other people saying it's great for dating or meeting people so you need to

  • teach me about that, I have no idea. How is Tinder being used

  • in your country I mean you clicked on this video. What do you use Tinder for

  • do you use it for friends, dating, hooking up, I am not judging

  • you as long as you're honest. Totally up to you. So let us know in the comments down below

  • If you come to Japan and you expect a certain thing of Tinder, just be prepared that

  • the people that are there might expect the exact same thing that you are expecting

  • of Tinder. There we go. If you have any more things you'd like to share with us drop

  • it in the comments but before you move on don't forget to subscribe for more content from Japan.
