I’m going to start out with a disclaimer: Every person- and consequently every situation- is different. I am going off of my experience and some discussions with my Japanese friends and friends who have lengthy experience with the culture.
I’m sure people can find exceptions to what I am putting forth as general rules. Additionally, I am a man, so all of my understanding comes from the perspective of a man.
In Western dating one would only tell someone “I love you” after being boyfriend and girlfriend for a good amount of time.
One says those words only with someone they feel they want to spend the rest of their lives with.
Westerners try not to say those words until they are sure of that feeling. But even telling someone “I like you” can be tricky.
