Noah Bennet , also known as the man in horn-rimmed glasses a. HRG or simply Mr. Along with his adoptive daughter Claire , Noah is the most frequently seen character in the series, and returned for the miniseries Heroes Reborn. At first glance, Noah Bennet appears to be an ordinary businessman who works at the Primatech Paper Company and lives in Odessa, Texas, with his wife and two children.
However, he and his associates have actually traveled the world for a number of years investigating superhuman phenomena and tracking down people with these "gifts. Though he is a "Company Man," he deeply cares for his family and will do anything to protect them, particularly his adopted daughter Claire, and puts their safety above all else.
He is also known as "Glasses Man". Bennet has had a number of associates, most notably a mysterious man most commonly known as " The Haitian ," who has the power to prevent other heroes from exercising their powers in his presence, as well as to remove select memories from people's minds.
Bennet's other known associates have been Eden McCain , a woman with the power of mind control who kills herself to keep Sylar from gaining her ability; Claude Rains , Bennet's first partner who has the power to turn invisible; and a romantic couple composed of Hank , a doctor with unknown abilities and his significant other, Lisa , who also has unknown abilities.
Rains is the first person to question Bennet's actions and those of The Company. Bennet is charged with executing Rains for his insubordination on moral grounds, but Rains escapes by literally disappearing into thin air. Bennet's true agenda and overall affiliation are mysterious.
These factors cloud his true allegiances. His one allegiance that is clear, however, is that to his daughter, Claire; his son, Lyle ; and his wife, Sandra. Bennet loves his daughter profusely, but is also overprotective of her. This sometimes leads him to use his authority and associates in unsavory ways. Past, present and future events all indicate that Bennet has lied about Claire's biological origins multiple times.
According to his driving license, his previous address is 9 Juniper Lane, Odessa, Texas. Noah Bennet speaks Japanese and also appears to speak at least some Ukrainian. Although he does not seem to possess any powers, his extensive experience in dealing with beings with superpowers allows him to be able to handle them effectively. Also, he displays considerable prowess in hand-to-hand combat and marksmanship.
In , Noah lived in Los Angeles with his first wife Kate as a used car salesman. Soon after learning Kate is pregnant, the two are attacked by a telekinetic named Richard in their home resulting in Kate's death. Before wanting to find the killer, Noah develops signs of psychotic depression and paranoia before he spends the next year mapping and tracking people with abilities. After encountering one of the people he is tracking, Noah demands that he tell him where he can find Richard, but is attacked and is forced to kill him in self-defence.
Soon after, Noah is approached by Eric Thompson Sr. After two years and several deaths on his cases Noah is encouraged by Thompson to get married to calm him so there are fewer incidents, suggesting to Noah to look at the waitress working at the restaurant, who turns out to be Sandra. Soon after, the two meet and then get married; they spend their honeymoon in West Berlin , Germany where Noah acts as informant for Thompson's assignment From the Files of Primatech, Part 5: In " Company Man ", a flashback episode, it is revealed that Noah Bennet's former partner years ago was Claude, with whom he rescued Claire from the fire her biological mother caused by pyrokinesis.
However, because Claude was hiding "one of them", Bennet was forced to kill him. However, Claude later turned out to be alive—he had used his powers to become invisible when Bennet shot him, disappearing from view.
In "Company Man", an episode that takes place over 16 years before "Genesis", Kaito Nakamura arranges for Noah to adopt Claire as an assignment and Bennet later allows them to plant the catalyst of the genetic modification formula— a formula that can grant superpowers to any and all who are injected with it— into Claire's body. At about the same time, he is contacted by Chandra Suresh , who has found Claire's picture on her high school's web site after identifying her as having potential powers.
Noah Bennet first appears in " Genesis ", the first episode. He is found in the apartment of Chandra Suresh in Madras , India. Chandra's son Mohinder enters the apartment, but leaves quickly after realizing Bennet is there as well. Bennet seems to notice Mohinder, and later follows him to New York. There, Bennet is one of Mohinder's afternoon passengers during his job as a taxicab driver.
Bennet begins pleasantly referencing his travels, and stating that he'll be happy to see his family again. The conversation turns as he mentions personal facts about Mohinder, ultimately resulting in Mohinder fleeing his own cab.
Finally, Bennet comes home to Odessa and greets his family. The next morning in " Don't Look Back ", Claire states her desire to meet her biological parents. Bennet is reluctant, but doesn't outright say "no. After a happy Claire leaves the room, Bennet is seen watching a video tape of Claire demonstrating her healing abilities.
In " Collision ", Bennet is first seen standing over Matt Parkman, who is strapped to a gurney. Bennet calmly converses with Matt, advising him to relax. Bennet also checks the readout of a machine used to gauge when Parkman is trying to read Bennet's mind.
Bennet explains that the Haitian is blocking Matt's powers. Nevertheless, Matt is able to pull the name "Claire" from Bennet's mind. Bennet is impressed by Matt's growing ability, and then tells the Haitian to "go deep" with Matt, who is last heard screaming. That morning, back at the Bennet house, Bennet finds that a distraught Claire has just come home. Bennet assumes from Claire's bare, mud-covered feet that she was out all night. Bennet has to get to work, but states that they'll talk later.
Bennet tells the Haitian to kidnap "just the one" Nathan. In the next episode, " Hiros ", Bennet and the Haitian attempt to force Nathan into a car, but he escapes by flying away. Bennet is then seen at Texas hospital visiting Claire.
Claire explains that Brody is a rapist and attempted to force himself on her. After speaking to one of his victims, Claire was motivated to do something. She only wanted to "scare" Brody, but as he sat in the passenger seat and said he wouldn't stop raping girls, she ultimately crashed his car intentionally. Claire begs her father not to tell anyone, and Bennet merely says he'll take care of it.
Bennet then appears in Brody's room, followed by the Haitian. He says that she is going through 'a confusing time', telling that he knows of her powers. He tells the boy that he is being given a chance to start over in life and Bennet then tells the Haitian to "hollow him out" and "take everything" erase all of Brody's memories, including that of his own name.
Bennet presents the two as Claire's biological parents. Eden relays information about Mohinder, Isaac Mendez "the precog" and the message "save the cheerleader, save the world. Bennet tells Eden to prevent Mohinder from leaving New York and to "bring in the precog.
At this point his wife, Sandra, lets slip to Claire that they'd had problems finding her parents in the past and that she was surprised that Noah Bennet managed to do it now. Bennet asks Isaac, whom Eden "persuaded" to come with her, to help him to prevent Claire from being murdered by Sylar at her homecoming game the next night. Bennet has collected three previous paintings Isaac created depicting a terrified Claire close-up, running up the bleachers in a football stadium, and lying dead on the ground with the top of her skull removed.
When Isaac is unable to paint without the use of heroin and resists taking the drug, Bennet orders Eden to use her powers to make Isaac believe he wants to use the drug. Bennet becomes frustrated after Isaac is unable to paint something that makes sense to him.
When Eden protests his actions, Bennet shows her a series of photographs depicting Sylar's dead victims—all with their brains removed from their heads—and says he is determined to save his daughter from such a fate. He orders Eden to go to the homecoming game and look for Sylar and grounds Claire to prevent her from being killed.
Bennet discovers later, however, that Claire snuck out and worriedly runs to the school to find her. When he arrives, he is too late to stop Sylar from attacking the cheerleader in the pictures. Bennet soon discovers that the victim was not Claire; rather, it was Jackie Wilcox , one of Claire's fellow cheerleaders. A relatively relieved Bennet soon reunites with his daughter and insists they go home while the police handle things.
Claire says that she has something to tell her father regarding her uncanny survival. In the episode " Fallout ", Claire's father reveals that he knew about her powers long before she was aware of them.
He acknowledges doing things he was not proud of to keep her safe, and tells Claire that Sylar had been taken care of, but that she must keep silent about her powers because she is in danger from others like him.
Bennet later meets with Sylar, confined in a prison cell, and tells him that the cell is keeping his powers suppressed. Sylar taunts Bennet telling him that Bennet is just like him. In their next confrontation Bennet turns the taunt back at Sylar telling him how they plan to study him to determine what makes him "tick.
Eden suggests using her powers to persuade Sylar to kill himself, but Bennet declines though briefly tempted , as he takes orders from someone higher up. Bennet later takes Claire to the police station, where she is interviewed about Jackie's murder. Officer Parkman is unable to read the thoughts of Claire or her father, since the Haitian is hiding behind a nearby corner.
Afterwards, Bennet orders the Haitian to wipe the memories of his son and Claire's friend, Zach. It is left open whether it is only then that he orders the Haitian to wipe Claire's memories or whether he has already done so. In " Godsend ", Bennet believes Claire's memory has been erased.
Claire acts as if it has, as well. However, Bennet and Claire are slowly drifting apart. Though they find nothing, Officer Parkman knows Bennet's up to something and has realized that Bennet kidnapped him. Bennet is unfazed, however, and simply tells Matt "good luck" in regards to his vendetta. Mohinder is defensive, recalling Bennet's past actions. However, Bennet means him no harm, and even mentions Eden. Soon, he makes a proposition.
Bennet tells Mohinder that together they could make a difference, and asks Mohinder to join him. Mohinder says he isn't interested, but Bennet leaves his card anyway. Bennet returns to Sylar's holding area in " The Fix "./p>

Looking for an easy, healthy, crunchy snack? I found the recipe for these spicy roasted garbanzos online, and thought it sounded quite interesting!
Garbanzo beans are also highly nutritious and filling. I had all the ingredients, so quickly whipped up a batch easy peasy! Garbanzo beans are lightly tossed with olive oil, then roasted. Once they are crunchy, and hot straight from the oven, they are tossed in a dry spice mix that is only a bit spicy and a bit sweet, to cover. The taste and the fact it is a fairly low calorie, nutritious snack! Spicy roasted garbanzos chickpeas are BEST when eaten right after roasting… they tend to lose a bit of the crunch factor after sitting for awhile.
I like to think of them as an alternative to hot popcorn, except without all the carbs and butter! Popcorn is always best right after popping, too!
Preheat your oven to degrees F. While your oven is preheating, open, drain and rinse a can of garbanzo beans also called chickpeas. Once garbanzos are dry, place them on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with a Tablespoon of olive oil, then gently toss, to coat. Spread the garbanzos out on the baking sheet, then bake in preheated degree oven for approximately minutes.
When done, they should be crunchy on the outside and golden brown in color. The spice mix was then sprinkled over the hot garbanzos, and they were tossed together until the roasted garbanzos were covered with spice mix. Serve the spicy roasted garbanzos hot and fresh! You can snack on them just like popcorn! The spicy roasted garbanzos are a wonderful snack! They are only a little bit spicy, and you do taste a little bit of the sweetness from the small amount of brown sugar!
Hope you enjoy these spicy roasted garbanzos! I can hardly wait to make some more to snack on. Pat the garbanzos dry. Spread them out on the baking sheet, then bake at degrees for minutes. While the garbanzos are roasting, mix together the spices in a small bowl or cup. When garbanzos are done roasting, place them in a small bowl while hot.
Sprinkle spice mix over hot garbanzos, and gently toss until roasted garbanzos are covered with spice mix. Citrus Marinated Swordfish Kabobs, with onions and red and green bell peppers are quick and easy to prepare, and can be grilled on a BBQ outside, or inside on a griddle.
My husband bought a small swordfish steak. There are two of us. Then it came to me… kabobs! By cutting it into smaller pieces and adding vegetable chunks, there would be plenty for BOTH of us! I have used swordfish before, including in my recipe for Swordfish in Lemon Garlic Sauce , but I wanted to try something different.
Thread swordfish and vegetables onto skewers, alternating vegetables and fish. If grilling these outside and using wood skewers, you will need to soak the wooden skewers for 30 minutes, fully submerged in water prior to adding fish and veggies, to prevent burning once over an open flame.
Mix together the ingredients for the citrus marinade. Brush sauce onto the kabobs, covering both swordfish and veggies. Turn kabobs to brush both sides with sauce. Heat griddle or outside BBQ with a tiny bit of oil on medium high heat. Once grill is hot, add the kabobs. You should hear them sizzle once they hit the grill. Cook for several minutes, then rotate kabobs to other side. Continue cooking turning to cook all sides , and basting with additional sauce, until swordfish is seared on the outside, and cooked through minutes.
Once citrus marinated swordfish kabobs are fully cooked through, carefully remove them from the grill, and serve! Each serving is two skewers of swordfish and veggies! I served them with steamed broccoli, yellow squash and carrots, and rice on the side. I really hope you will enjoy these citrus marinated swordfish kabobs… we sure did!
By using only ONE swordfish steak between the two of us, it saved some money, too! Have a fantastic day! Cut the swordfish steak into 16 bite sized cubes 4 used per skewer. Cut the bell peppers and onion into approximate 2" wedges about the same size as the swordfish cubes. If you are grillng indoors on flat surface, no need to treat skewers. If grilling outside and using wood skewers, you will need to soak the wooden skewers for 30 minutes, fully submerged in water prior to adding fish and veggies, to prevent burning once over an open flame.
Once hot, add kabobs. If a piece of the fish isn't fully touching the griddle, simply use a fork to lightly press it down, to ensure a crisp seared exterior. Sometimes the veggies prevent a few piecesfrom being seared on outside; this is the best way I've found to solve that issue.
I found a recipe for a vegetarian ragu pasta dish online and thought it sounded interesting! Well, actually it is that, but the recipe I am sharing today is a homemade ragu sauce! I made a couple changes to the original recipe, such as adding Italian sausage and beef broth, and ended up with an amazing rigatoni sausage mushroom ragu! This hearty, delicious ragu tastes amazing, and I hope you will read on… and make this dish!
Before starting the actual cooking, be sure to have all your veggies chopped ahead of time, and the rest of the ingredients ready to go!. You will thank me later. Note that half of the mushrooms are sliced, the other half are chopped. You will add them to the dish at different times. The chopped mushrooms will help add thickness to the sauce. Put Italian sausage taken OUT of the casings , butter and vegetable oil into a large stockpot or skillet.
Heat on medium heat, stirring often, until butter has melted. Add chopped onions and celery to the pot. Cook them for a few minutes, stirring often, until the sausage has fully cooked, and the veggies have softened.
Add sliced mushrooms; cook for 1 more minute, stirring as they cook. You are slowly adding in layers of flavor! Add the chopped mushrooms, and cook for 1 minute. Add red wine to pan. Heat, and let the wine gently boil for 2 minutes. Add canned tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock or vegetable stock , and spices.
Stir to combine all ingredients. Once sauce is boiling, stir in the dry rigatoni noodles, to combine. Put a lid on the pan or cover with aluminum foil , and turn the heat down to LOW. Let the pasta cook for minutes mine took 15 , or until the pasta is cooked all the way through. Give the pasta a stir a few times while it is cooking, then put lid back on pan. If at any time, the rigatoni sausage mushroom ragu looks like it is getting too dry if heat was too high , then just add several spoonfuls of hot water to pan, and stir in, to combine.
When the rigatoni sausage mushroom ragu is fully cooked, it is time to serve! Give the pasta a stir, then portion it out into serving bowls. Bowls seem to hold the sauce better than on a plate. Garnish top of each bowl of pasta with some roughly chopped flat leaf parsley and grated Parmesan cheese.
And there you have it! Rigatoni sausage mushroom ragu for dinner! Others are listed in the Recipe Index at the top of each post. Have a wonderful day! Recipe adapted from Nicky at: Cook for a few minutes, stirring often, until the sausage has fully cooked, and veggies have softened. Add chopped red bell pepper and minced garlic.
Cook, stirring often, for two minutes. Heat, and let wine gently boil for 2 minutes. Stir, to combine all ingredients. Bring sauce to a boil. Once sauce is boiling, add dry rigatoni noodles; stir to combine. Put a lid on the pan or cover with aluminum foil ; turn heat down to LOW. After Zach and she go upstairs, Bennet gets a call from Hank. Hank states that Sylar has died, which Bennet replies is "less than ideal.
Bennet then turns around to find Sylar calmly standing in front of him. Sylar asks about Claire, then states his intentions to kill her. After telekinetically throwing Bennet against a wall and playing with the lights, Sylar leaves Bennet trapped in the cell.
Later, at the Bennet home, he and the Haitian narrowly save Sandra from Sylar. Although Sylar escapes, Bennet is confident he will catch the killer. Mendez is revealed to be working with Bennet, as he relays information about Peter Petrelli.
They fire Tasers at Claude, but Peter unexpectedly utilizes his powers to stop the electrodes and fly away from them. Bennet is then called by Claire, who tells him that Sandra has collapsed for unknown reasons.
Bennet heads back home, and is confronted by Claire in the hospital, where she reveals that she remembers everything that the Haitian was supposed to erase. Afterwards, the Bennet family returns home, where they are confronted by Ted Sprague and Matt Parkman. The episode "Company Man" begins with the hostage-taking of the Bennet family by Sprague and Parkman, who are in search of answers. Noah Bennet has revelations about his company during this situation, showing that he initially came to work for "The Company" under the supervision of a man named Thompson, and partnered with Claude.
He is eventually ordered to kill Claude, because Claude apparently was hiding "one of them" from The Company. During the confrontation with Sprague, Thompson comes through the back door and shoots Ted, who goes into an uncontrolled radioactive state.
Noah Bennet and Matt escape the house, while Claire tranquilizes Sprague. After this, Matt and Ted are taken to the paper factory. Thompson asks Bennet when Claire should be showing up at the factory.
It is at that moment that Bennet realizes he's too attached to Claire. The graphic novel " Family Man "  reveals that, at this point, Noah Bennet decides that he must do what he can to save Claire and "bring down the people [he] work[s] for.
The episode ends with Noah Bennet taking Claire to the same bridge on which he shot Claude so many years ago. The Haitian shows up, and Bennet instructs the Haitian to shoot him in the stomach, then "Go deep" and wipe anything out of his memory that could lead "them" to Claire. The Haitian follows the order, then takes Claire away to protect her, as instructed.
In " Parasite ", Bennet is questioned by Thompson; he claims that the last thing he remembers is driving home Sandra from the hospital. Later, before Noah Bennet is about to leave on business, Sandra tells him that she is only pretending to have had her mind wiped, as he told her to do; and that he had told her everything about what he really did, who he works for, and what happened to Claire. She gives him a note that he left for himself, warning him not to look for Claire because she is with friends.
Upon his return home, Bennet tells Sandra that they both have to pretend that they have no idea what has happened, and that Primatech has to be stopped for good to ensure Claire's safety. His will to protect Claire is challenged by Candice, who shapeshifts into Claire's form; Bennet recognizes the ruse right away and tells her and Thompson that he does not know where Claire is and will never give her up to them. Thompson threatens to kill Bennet, but Bennet notes that if they really wanted him dead, they'd have killed him by now.
Thompson tells Bennet that he is merely waiting on orders to do so. Realizing that the only hope of stopping Thompson and his superiors will be to escape from Primatech, Bennet telepathically gives instructions to Matt Parkman, who is also being held prisoner, on how to break out of his cell. Matt is then told to fetch Sprague from his cell so that Sprague can generate an EMP to shut down the power at Primatech, which will then allow them to break Bennet out of his cell.
Matt is reluctant to go along with the plan, and Sprague doesn't trust Bennet, but eventually the three of them work together to escape. Over breakfast at the Burnt Toast Diner, Bennet reveals that the only way to stop Thompson is to get to New York City to destroy the tracking device that tracks heroes tagged with the neck tattoo, and he produces bus tickets to take them there.
When Matt asks if Mr. Linderman is in New York, Bennet seems surprised by Matt's knowledge of the name. Matt guesses correctly that Bennet was "middle management" and is somewhat incredulous that Bennet seems not to know who was signing his paychecks all those years.
Bennet tells Matt to forget about Linderman and that it is more important that they get to New York and destroy the tracker. Sprague casts the deciding vote to go to New York City, and Matt reluctantly agrees to join them on their destination.
After escaping from Primatech Paper with Sprague and Parkman, the three of them head for New York to destroy the tracking system and the company. Bennet reveals that the Company has a new tracking system called the Walker system. He reveals that this system doesn't need radio isotopes or tracers to find you; it just knows where you are.
Unbeknownst to Bennet, the Walker tracker system is later revealed to be Molly Walker , who has the ability to mentally find anyone in the world, just by thinking about them. Claire sees the trio coming, and father and daughter reunite. Peter then notices his hands beginning to glow. Bennet realizes that Peter is absorbing Ted's power, and Peter and Claire look at each other worriedly. After Peter controls himself, the group splits in two, with Peter, Claire, and Sprague going to a remote town in Nebraska, and Parkman and Bennet continuing with their mission to destroy the tracking system.
Bennet knows where they need to go, but he needs Parkman's powers to allow them access. Matt confronts a security guard and convinces him that they know each other and had spoken outside of work the previous night. Upon revealing an embarrassing secret of the guard's, the man lets them in without hesitation. While waiting for the elevator, they bump into Jessica and D. The four go up in the elevator together, with Bennet telling them where to find Linderman.
Bennet and Parkman then get off at the floor where the tracking system is, only to find Thompson waiting for them. Parkman saves Bennet from getting shot, only to have Bennet leave him defenseless against Thompson. Thompson then comes up behind Parkman, puts a gun to his head, and asks him, "What am I thinking now, Parkman? The two then proceed to find the tracking system, where both are surprised to find it's a young girl — though only Matt is completely surprised: Bennet claims he knew it was a person, just not a little girl — whom Matt had previously rescued from Sylar, and who thought of Matt as "my hero.
The two continue to argue until Matt is suddenly knocked out by Mohinder from behind. The episode ends with Mohinder pointing a gun on Bennet while the latter points his gun on Molly, both men threatening to shoot.
Parkman wakes up, ending the standoff. Bennet asks Molly to locate Sylar, which she does - he's nearby. He later finds Peter after he passed out from nearly exploding, thanks him for saving Claire and agrees to kill him if it comes to that. He also reveals his first name, telling Peter to "Call me Noah. Bennet is immediately thrown against a wall, rendering him incapable of stopping Peter if he explodes. Four months after the incidents in New York, the Bennets have gone into hiding, having moved to Costa Verde, California, and assumed the last name of "Butler.
Despite going into hiding, he is still working to take down "the Company" with the help of Mohinder Suresh. In " Lizards ", Noah tells his wife about a series of eight paintings done by the late Isaac Mendez , each depicting the death of a single person.
He possesses the first, which predicts the death of Kaito Nakamura , and intends to locate the other seven.
At the end of the episode, Noah is reunited with the Haitian; the accompanying graphic novel shows that Mohinder directed the Haitian to Bennet. In " Kindred ", Mohinder finds the last of the eight paintings, this one depicting Noah's death. He is lying on the ground with a bullet hole through the left lens of his glasses. A girl resembling Claire is in the background, apparently being held by someone.
While there, he receives a call from Mohinder explaining that Molly Walker has fallen into a catatonic state and he wishes to take her to the Company for observation. Noah is unable to talk him out of it, though he warns that they'll have Mohinder as soon as he relinquishes that which he cares about.
In " The Line ", Noah tracks down his old mentor, Ivan. He has the Haitian remove precious memories marriage day, kids being born, etc. Knowing that his method of interrogation, as well as trying to use the Haitian to cover his tracks, will alert the Company, he instead opts to kill his mentor, making the affair appear to be a simple home invasion.
The one in question is a painting of Suresh holding a Company-issue gun that has just been fired. Noah takes pictures of the paintings in an effort to send them to Suresh, but Suresh refuses stating his life may be in danger. Afterwards, Noah and the Haitian burn the entire collection and Noah returns home. West has dropped by without notice that same morning and made breakfast for Claire.
As Noah walks into the house, West sees Noah and remembers who he is. West runs outside and abruptly flies away without being seen by Noah. Having left behind a newspaper detailing the incident with the drunk cheerleader, it ends up in hand of Noah, who sees it as a threat to the family. He confronts Claire and tells her she is putting the life of their family in danger.
Furthermore, he tells her and the family to pack their things, and they are leaving immediately. Claire then calls her father out, stating that he was not being honest about his "trip" he took for "management training". Claire defiantly tells her father that she is not moving anywhere else and walks out of the room. Though they are eventually successful, Noah manages to capture Elle.
Noah brokers a trade with Bob, getting his daughter back in exchange for Bob's. When Elle breaks free and tries to kill West and Claire, Noah shoots her in the arm. He then prepares to execute Bob, citing that Claire will never be free so long as the Company survives.
But Mohinder shoots Noah, mimicking Isaac's painting exactly, and Noah is struck in the left eye and dies. While his family believes him to be dead, the episode ends with Noah in a Company facility, strapped to a gurney and being given a transfusion of Claire's blood; his destroyed eye subsequently regenerates and he returns to life.
During the episode, with Noah still in the hands of The Company, Bob visits the Bennets' home with an urn telling them that it contains Noah's ashes. In " Powerless ", Noah returns to his family, clearly shocking them all as he is allegedly dead. He tells them that he was brought back using Claire's blood, and that he made a deal with The Company which will allow his family to lead a normal life with one condition; he must stay with the Company.
Noah then leaves his family. Elle releases him from his cell so that he can help in the apprehension of Sylar during the attack on the Level 5 facility. After Elle inadvertently knocks out Sylar and causes a breakdown of the complex security system, Noahfearing the worst after seeing Sylar demonstrate Claire's abilityplaces Sylar in a cell and makes his own escape. Later, when Noah visits the house and sees Claire alive but traumatized, he explains that he cannot stay as he has to recapture the superhumans who escaped during Sylar's attack, stating "They're villains, Claire, and I'm one of the only people on the planet who knows how to stop them," and even showing her some info on the escapees.
Before leaving, Noah tells her that he's enlisted Claire's biological mom, the pyrokinetic Meredith Gordon , to help protect the family. When they arrive at the bank where a group of escapees are causing trouble, Noah orders Sylar to stay out of his way and let him handle the escapees, but Sylar uses his sharp tongue to convince the police that they are FBI agents so they can get through.
Noah manages to free the hostages, but is then taken hostage himself. Just as Knox and Jesse Murphy now free of Peter 's influence are about to start beating him up, Sylar enters and stops them both with his telekinesis, also neutralizing Jesse's power.
Noah reminds him of the "plan", and Sylar replies "You just said that to make sure I didn't. Back at Level 5, Noah mentions to the Haitian that he only plans to be partnered with Sylar long enough to ascertain a weakness, to which then he'll kill him. When he chastises Sylar for the death of Jesse, he merely states that "rehabilitation doesn't happen overnight. Later on, he and Sylar arrive at the home of Stephen Canfield and discover Claire there, having already attempted to capture him, only to find out that he is not truly evil.
After Canfield opens up a vortex , which Claire, Noah, and Sylar barely avoid getting sucked into, and escapes, Noah orders Sylar to shut up after he attempts to apologize for what he did, and Claire tells him of Canfield's true colors. He assures her that he would not put someone in Level 5 who didn't belong there, and Claire tells him about Canfield's whereabouts.
When they find Canfield, Noah attempts to force him to kill Sylar in exchange for his freedom, clearly convinced that Sylar cannot be redeemed, but Canfield instead opens up a vortex and sucks himself in, preferring death to becoming a monster. Noah and Sylar take Claire home, and the former assures her that he only does these things to protect her. Noah is impressed that Claire was able to help take out a very dangerous man, but Claire brushes him off, still angry with him about the Canfield incident and his partnership with Sylar.
Noah then asks Meredith to accompany him as a partner. In " The Eclipse ", when Pinehearst begins looking for the catalyst needed to perfect Mohinder's genetic modification formula, which is assumed to be Claire, Noah goes into hiding with her at the now-abandoned Canfield house and begins to teach her how to fight, but the father-daughter duo are soon attacked by Sylar and Elle.
As their and everyone else's powers are negated due to a solar eclipse , Noah is more than a match for them, even dislocating Sylar's arm, but is ultimately forced to retreat when Claire takes a bullet from Elle that was meant for him. Angered and worried, Noah takes her home where he and Sandra treat her wound, and he decides against going to a hospital, believing it to be minor and unwilling to take the risk of her powers returning while they are there.
He then leaves to get revenge on Sylar and Elle for Claire's injury. Noah tracks Sylar and Elle down at the Canfield household and watches them have sex through the scope of a sniper rifle.
Afterwards, he opens fire, misses, and then breaks into the house and shoots at them with a Company handgun , hitting Elle in the left thigh and forcing them into a retreat.
While looking for them, Noah receives a call from Sandra in which she informs him that Claire is hospitalized. Instead of immediately rushing to the hospital, Noah follows a trail of Elle's blood to a local grocery store.
After luring him into a back room, Sylar jumps him from behind, but he is once again outmatched without his powers against Noah's fighting skills. Ultimately, after tossing the ultimate insult "Poor Gabriel. You always wanted to be special. Now look at you; you're nobody. When he returns home, Claire is understandably angered with him for focusing on Sylar rather than rushing to the hospital.
When Claire reveals that she had died in the hospital, Noah realizes something awful: Indeed, Sylar and Elle, newly empowered, have made it to the Bennet household and are holding Sandra and Lyle hostage. Sylar telekinetically disarms Noah, pins him to the wall, and begins to strangle him with his powers. Claire desperately swears to go with Sylar in exchange for leaving her family alone, but Sylar is unsatisfied with that and begins to cut into Noah's neck, clearly intent on decapitating him.
Fortunately, Hiro Nakamura arrives, teleports Sylar and Elle away, and then time-travels with Claire back to the day when his father first assigned Noah to protect her. When Claire is returned to the present by Arthur Petrelli , she, Noah, Meredith, and Angela are trapped in Primatech when Sylar initiates the lockdown mode. However, Echo and Danny are killed by Sylar, and Doyle is incapacitated.
Soon afterwards, Noah is led into a trap by Sylar, who locks him in a cell with Meredith, who has been injected with adrenaline , her ability becoming increasingly uncontrollable, and leaves him with a handgun with one bullet.
Sylar tells him that he will have to choose between killing Meredith to save himself and explaining her death to Claire, or doing nothing and being burnt to death. However, Claire arrives at that moment, and Meredith, as per Noah's orders, superheats the bulletproof glass of the cell to weaken it, and then Noah shoots the glass to no avail. Claire then bodily throws herself through the window to help Noah escape, which he does. After Claire "kills" Sylar, she escapes with Noah and Angela just as Meredith finally loses control of her ability and unleashes a massive explosion.
Afterwards, Noah comforts a tearful Claire as they watch Primatech burn to the ground. As they escape, Noah asks him who he's been in contact with. Oh, by the way, for a woman to have tons of sexual partners is not difficult. Ahahaha…look at the haters here. First, you either have to be born attractive or spend money on overpriced make-up.
Then you have to have the perfect body which any woman rarely has. Then you have to buy overpriced good-looking clothes. Double standard slut-shaming right there. Men are not entitled to judge women on how they feel about themselves and how comfortable they are about their sex lives.
I found your descriptions very reassuring as I am about to go on a three-month trip, financed via filming for an indy movie there. We were giving the option of staying longer after the shoot ends but I was a bit worried how I might be viewed as a western women alone there.
At least now, I have some better idea of how I can dress and act and still have a social life while away. Any other advice welcome! You sound like a girly girl who is comfortable with her femininity. This is attractive to men anywhere in the world. It shows how warped Western culture has become. The truth is they are only low status in her warped world view, which judges men on very shallow criteria.
These women have been well-raised and learned to look beyond the surface for what is truly valuable in a partner, and they consider the Western men to be a good catch. The feeling is mutual — the white Western men who end up with Asian chicks do not in any way consider it a consolation prize, they are sick and tired of the entitled attitude and unreasonable expectations of Western women and regard Asian women as superior in every way. This is the harsh reality that the author skirts around.
Western women are widely seen as defective across the rest of the civilized world. I wrote this while in Japan last year…at a time when I was feeling pretty discouraged.
Japan is obsessed with youth, fashion,and overall attractiveness. Unfortunately for the author she has none of those qualities. Combined with her arrogance and self entitlement, who would date her? Either she gets with the program and understand that she is average at best and will never pull a Japanese man, or just take a plane to Jamaica and call it a day lol.
I understand the article. Clearly ones own experience. Comment either agreeing or not agreeing. And how did her looks get into this? What do you have against Metallica? You sound like a typical western entitled delusional feminist.
You are not the gift to humanity dear. Overall you look average at best. Hey girl, if you are like me, a western women ,then stick to living in your own country. Us Western women are typically oblivious to how good they have it here.
But anyways the blogger is very right and her details are fact. The only thing I can chip in here is that any female over 24 years and not married is considered expired and too old old hag to Japanese men. It is the culture and thus is the reason you see the school girl trend in Japan. Old men like very young girls so they work very long or pretend to, just to get away from their old hags wives at home so they can pick up the school girl on the street corner or the mall to the love hotels.
They like aggressive and bizarre sex. I will never date an American white female in the first place because of the attitude and mentality they have thinking they are better than everyone else, and also the sex starved men in America put the women on a pedestal. You have basically experienced what it is like to be a man in the western world. If a guy wrote what you have written all the failure would have been ascribed to him, and I believe you need to look at this from that perspective.
You should have taken the lead, you did not, by your own choice. Cultures are different and you simply did not play by their rules, so they did not consider you to be taking part in the game at all. And above that you make bitter fun of those western men, as if after all that you had the nerve to think you are somehow better than them.
Calvin — Aww…Do I really sound that bitter? I was trying to be funny but maybe I took that too far? You feeling undesireable sounds exactly like how average guys over in the west feel. Dating is freaking annoying in this part of the world and no woman will even bother with you unless you hit on her and woo her first. Dating over here sounds like what you described your experience.
I seriously should visit an Asian country for a month or so just to see how it feels like to be as desireable as your average woman. Not trying to sound like an asshole. Just look how you calling the men nerds and how they could not get a woman back home. How ugly they look and so on. They dog out the nice men and threat the bad guys like kings.
There are more women from other countries want a nice man and not the bad guys. A lot of men in other countries treat their women like crap, just like the women in the western countries treat their men like crap. So western men and foreign women have a lot in common. Most western women act more like men than women, they lost their femininity.
A woman can attack a man and if the man defend himself or calls the cops. He will go to jail instead of the woman. Then you have to pay the woman in till she dies or get married.
At the end the man is put into the poor house. Still have hair on my head. I met my wife in Karate class and we dated for two years before we gotten married. They are more good looking soldiers married to Japanese wives then western women on base. So when you treat that nice guy like shit and go for that bad guy.
Act like the nice guy in invisible. Get into that entitlement more. Just think about your trip to Japan and how you was treated. How you felt about it, then you will know how that nice guy feels. All thanks to man hating feminist and for giving more rights to women and less rights to men.
I got 5 year left in service and I will stay in Japan just like a lot of the troops before. In every case I know myself included , the women I described are far far better off as wives than the women which fit my previous description.
Too stupid to learn Japanese or look outside roppongi? Then you have to settle for the used car with K miles. You do come across as extremely bitter. It really showcases why men in the US are seemingly so dissatisfied by American women. That, coupled with whatever exotic qualities being foreign brings, allows expat men to date higher quality women than they can at home. Especially if they are in shape, or rail thin as you put it.
And you should not expect to attract attention just because you enter a room, maybe thats a girl thing but I have never heard of any guy being sad that no one noticed he was wearing a his muscle tee.
I found it interesting and amusing. At times it can be tough. I lived in Thailand for a year and worked with a bunch of creepy Western guys who got tons of chicks while I found it so hard to meet people, even just as friends. This unfortunate attitude and shaming of men is one of the reasons foreign women appeal to them in the first place. Of course the writer of this article is not particularly attractive, and wants a date.
Did you read those pickup strategies?! That apparently is deserving of sympathy. Take your sexism back to the West where it can continue to masquerade as feminism. Really love the honesty of this article. It was great to hear your perspective. I can forget it…. If you are hardworking person, you can come to Balkan — EU. If you are bitch stay where you are, we have enough bitches here. That would be so tough…I feel for ya. At this point in time anyway….
Yes, all the men visiting Thailand are creepy, sex starved expats and they will try to molest you at the first chance.
Calling men creepy and nerdy is not going to change anything. You lost this time, accept it instead of trying to take everyone else down with you. What you experience there is every mans experience and not only for nine months, his entire life.
Women in the west have reached a critical point in mentality where they get more satisfaction by rejecting men than being with them. What do you get out of shaming men who go to Japan for find a woman?
You sound like a woman hating beta male. She was just trying to be humorous while talking about her own experience in Japan.
I thought it was interesting. It must feel nice to behave like a victim all the time right? It probably makes it easier to deny the fact that you are the reason that you suck, and not because the world is against you. Broseph And you sound like a cringey white-knighting male feminist cuck. What an accomplishment to put in your resume. The fact they have to resort to sex tourism is because of such attitudes in the West in the first place. I was thinking about going overseas to New Zealand for a bit, I wonder if it would be the same for women there as well.
I highly doubt they care in the least. Your opinion has zero weight with them — precisely how it should be. The staring and harassment is relentless, no matter how you dress or how much you ignore them. So, no problem getting a Maldivian guy to date, but if you want to date an expat then you really struggle because the expat community is tiny!
This is exactly the problem men are referring to. Western Men are happy to experience new cultures and relish meeting foreign women. My solution is to move back to Eastern Europe and find a good permanent mate to be the mother of my children and give her a few more.
I am healthy, in good shape and just made a bundle of money. Frankly, my feminazi partner can find a way to find for herself. She is pst-wall and totally screwed. I really tried with you Western Women, but you really are awful, selfish, entitled creatures and you deserve your fate — extinction. More likely the Asian men simply recognize that western women have ridiculous material expectations of their men and expect to be put on a pedestal at all times instead of being equitable partners.
Your article perfectly depicts some of my horribly low moments of single-hood…. Well, then serves you right. And you were wondering why only ugly men tried to approach you. Probably because you were ugly too! I also think the points you make are interesting for another reason. A few days ago, my sociology prof brought up the issue of Japan and xenophobia. Apparently, its gotten to the point that their population is actually shrinking.
No Sex in the City: But I had something that the competition d……. Most of the western women I knew were poor and hard-working and were choosing to live abroad for the same reason men did, to escape some of the problems of the West like the shallow, consumer culture, for instance.
And not one of them was obese…. However, why are you so insistent along with some commentators to be derisive of foreign men in Japan? Are you okay with bullying? Or is that just a selectional process? If my wife and I ever leave each other. I say hell no to western women. I tried to many times with them and I say no more. I rather try to rape a polar bear in Alaska in the winter time. Before I even messed with another western woman again.
Perfect case in point to my comment earlier is the comment by Kelly above. Could this statement sound any more entitled and over-privileged? Do I need to point out how shallow and racist this is?
And yet it is an entirely acceptable and common statement from the majority of expat Caucasian women? Japanese guys are alright but to shy. I found dating them a little boring but for white girls if you want lots of attention the caribbean and south america is the way to go.
Men in those countries are romantic and fall all over white women. And Tommy we can all tell your a loser! You are so right. By the way, this post is not only sexist but is the epitome of entitlement modern women have.
Funny thing is that Japanese women who date Westerners are not into equality. One of the first problem they encounter after marriage is that Western husband expect his wife to work. Main attraction, aside from caucasian fetish, is the perceived superior quality of married life, especially shorter working hour of her husband and more holiday.
What I was saying, is that the supposed superiority that western men suddenly assume, whilst living here, irks us western women beyond belief, as we know that it is a circumstantial superiority. Japanese men, in record numbers, have done what western men, so far, can only dream of: Once that is done, it becomes clear that dating is a lot of work, ludicrously risky, and offers little reward, except for a tiny minority of people who get lucky.
Those western men you are jealous of? They are not scoring the Japanese Queen Bee. Instead, they are her prey. And once she has them securely in her clutches, the ugly truth will be revealed to them, and they will regret the choices they made, deeply. But then, I suppose that makes it less likely you will find a willing, docile, humanoid utility drone that you can exploit, so I can see how you would be upset.
This is not surprising since the impression that Japanese women love white guys is largely an illusion propogated by short-term residents who never leave Roppongi.
My impression was that most Japanese women, including almost all of the more desirable ones, would not even consider dating a non-Japanese. The ones who go around trying to get foreign guys tend to occupy the fringes of Japanese society, although there are some nice, educated ones who have an international background and have different tastes for that reason. I think a woman just has to assume that if she moves from a place with a relatively low quality female population and high quality male population e.
In the US, I often see decent looking men with horribly obese and otherwise unattractive women. It is simply a different competitive environment. The US is kind of a bubble in that way and I think it creates unrealistic expectation among American women i. I think the dynamic is basically like this.
A guy who is a 4 in the US will be a 6 in Japan because of slightly weaker competition. But he is happy because this 5 would be a 7 by US standards, So you see that both sides are happy.
The Japanese woman is a 5 but gets a 6 by Japanese standards. It is all based on a different competitive environment.
I think that to the extent US women are not successful in finding guys in Japan, it is a result of having more competition and not being used to competing. I agree with jt: I did find the article racist tho- does being white mean you are somehow unworthy of female attention?
Or automatically a loser? Great insight to the female expat in Japan. I think it balances out on a worldwide scale though, to be a white woman in a foreign country and not get attention is less common than the countries where you will. Travel back to the place were only women seem to have the right to throw smug looks. It felt like I was a novelty, and they only liked me for what I was, not for who I was. I know a lot of girls who have Japanese boyfriends, who are super sweet and awesome guys.
And Tommy, reaching much? There is a loophole for white girls— countries with heavily Black or Hispanic populations. There is a social inequality in race X gender combinations that has been ignored as sociologists tend to try to focus on economic inequality. Races are engendered to some degree. Asian just happens to be more feminine overall, and Black tends to be more masculine.
In this stratified system that persists across the space and time, black men and asian women are on top, and black women and asian men are the losers. Whites are about… in the middle. If you think being a white female in japan is tough, try being black. Here is my suggestion for a strategy: Try the friend-first, more-than-friends-later approach with Japanese guys.
If you keep it platonic at first, you lower the awkwardness barrier for a lot of them. Other than that, there are a lot of cultural factors working against you. Also, at all the bitter white guys with asian girl fetishes who felt that they were called out and responded with their bitter comments e. Just go back to your anime and english teaching. Oh, cut the racist nonsense. And yet it rarely happens. You are mistaking masculinity with aesthetics. Some features are just more aesthetically pleasing than others.
And some people, for whatever reason finds the Asian male and black female features less attractive. Those who date or marry interracially are a minority universally.
And then as close to that as possible. Like I said, most everyone has a preference for their particular group, with a minority who choose to seek out what they consider to be exotic and different. Again, that is so culturally presumptuous. And as far as American men elsewhere, one can never separate perceptions of Americanness with perceptions of wealth or status or visa opportunities.
Oh, and there are some good YouTube channels by black American women who went to Japan, a couple of whom married Japanese men. Edit for the above: I seem to have struck a nerve here…. But maybe your experience has been different? Generally speaking, Japanese men are shy which makes everything more difficult. I love your article Reannon!
Your article Has the elements of the modern Sex and The City in the social media age and in a different city. Thanks for this read! I would love to hear more of your adventures in the land of the Rising Sun,. Where are all these fit, gorgeous men with unattractive girlfriends that you guys speak of? AdventureRob — You get attention, yes.
But more of the kind that Sup was talking about than anything serious…. Yes, I think it really is almost entirely about competition. Foreign men outnumber foreign women by about 5 to 1. And if even a tiny percentage of the Japanese male population had a Western woman fetish, they would exceed the supply by many thousands to one. Of course, given your description of the expats as dorky and the Japanese as frightened, I guess perhaps no one is up to your standards.
The non-Japanese women I know in Japan, aside from North Americans, seemed to be able to find men although they were generally other expats. I am sure their pool of potential dates was smaller than at home but that applies to the guys as well. Given how tight knit the expat community is in Tokyo, it is in fact probably easier to be an expat there then in most other places. Try getting out in San Francisco. My experience is that people tend to attract people of the same attractiveness level, whatever that may be certain island countries in Asia, excluded of course… ;.
I guess our experiences differ. It would be rude of me to photograph fat ugly women with average men so I have no way to prove my point. If anything, couple of mixed attractiveness is something I see far more of in the US. A large portion of the rest are reasonably educated, well to do professionals.
I think your experience is based on spending too much time with English teachers. I say bravo to any man or woman who struck gold as you seem to say in the dating world. And most comments by women do not respond to the core of your point, but to those 3 paragraph, also oozing spite for no reason.
And finally it seems that a few people here, both male and female, disagree with whether Japanese men date Western women or not. Reannon, I think you just struck a nerve, because a lot of western men are super-defensive about this topic — maybe because they know it to be true.
My gaijin male friends here are cool enough to laugh at their counterparts, and themselves. Of course, it is a stereotype, and a lot of men here that I know are educated professionals, a lot of whom are dating western women too. Note that the men on this thread have vastly different opinions and perspectives from the women. Who can say — but both genders have the right to speak out. And if you think that the women are being obnoxious, I challenge you to read what the men have written above, re: I like how most of the men on here are gloating about how bitter the article is and when the comments from them are times more salty and honestly outright hateful than any of the content in this article.
Kelly — Yeah, everyone needs to lighten up! Well, as you say, no reason to turn this into a never ending series of veiled or all-out insults.
Opinions are opinions and this is the internetz. I kind of prefer the middle ground of equality, respect and harmony. I never called all Western women overweight, that would be silly. I said, in the US especially, overweight women marrying average or slightly above average guys is quite common, and burn the man who dares comment. Reannon — Thanks for the article. I currently live in Japan and deal with the frustrations of culture clash on a daily basis.
This trend is seen throughout the world as well, but more strikingly so in Japan. Men typically do not study foreign languages as eagerly as women; this could be a major reason for why Japanese women are more willing to speak with people of different nationalities and cultures than their male counterparts. There is quite a bit of research behind this hypothesis, but you would have to synthesize several different sources to grasp the broadview. For example, many studies contradict one another, but they draw from different demographics those who study English, people of certain industries, general population, etc.
It is stressful enough to be confident in public with the intention of getting laid. But when a woman approaches me and she either speaks my language with a heavy accent or a foreign language, my confidence rapidly deflates. How do I be charming? How do I be funny? I know this is a character flaw, but I feel most men take upon this responsibility when they are single and mingling. No, make great friends with them. They will be your wingman. It is much easier for Japanese men to talk to foreign men.
We, as a gender, understand eachother enough to know when they are interested in talking to a woman. We will go up to the Japanese guy and make them feel comfortable in talking with you. I help my female friends here in this way, to great success. I am balding, but some women like that! Daddy issues are awesome. The only men confident enough to approach them are also arrogant and selfish. Foreign men, however, are eager to date and approach women.
So perhaps that is the two-headed serpant: Japanese men are not successful in approaching women, so many women including women of different cultures experience a much less active sex life. And who is there to pick up the slack? The non-Japanese men, of course. I do feel we have an immediate advantage though. There is something about the mystery, exoticism, and uncertainty of a foreigner to a woman that simply makes things easier for men. It is convensional wisdom within our culture, often depicted in film and television, and I believe that attitude translates to Japan.
They are fat, evil and smell like yeast. They seem to be expecting some thing that they do not deserve. I say stay away eeeuuuwwww! Western woman black or white.
So you were mad that guys you felt were below YOUR standards were somehow dating out of what you considered their league to be? Sounds like you deserve to be alone. Around 12 shots into the evening one of them said that a common belief among his countrymen was that western women have big, loose vaginas to accommodate the larger western penises, and that white and black women were seen as less desirable in Japan due to that fact. Otherwise, hello bit bucket!
The problem is that American women are known the world over as being self-centered and demanding princesses who feel like men should be kissing up to their posteriors. I think there are a lot of people commenting who have very little or no personal experience of living in Japan.
The Japanese have a huge awe for the West… and pick and choose many fashion and cultural elements to blend in with their own culture, but they do not take the culture that have given birth to them- they seem a superficial wrapping on top of the Feudal class system that exists in a very way today in japan.
The down side is that you will never really be able to integrate deep down…. Japan is quite an old fashioned place in many respects, and conformity is rife, the nail that sticks out gets hammered down. One last comment, failure is seen as very un-macho in Japan. As an average looking, career-successful, white guy in the US, I felt the same way. Having then tried expat life in Japan, I am glad there is a place where some of us are more appreciated. American women are a common object of ridicule among the Europeans as are Americans generally.
I never heard them discussed by the Japanese but when I would solicit opinions they were polite but negative. Nevermind what Jeff said…. I would say that 90 percent of both the female AND male commenters have had very interesting, polite and intelligent things to say on the subject. Honestly… American women tend to have a terrible reputation the world over, and i can only imagine how ingrained these stereotypes and rumours get ingrained when it comes to places as xenophobic as Japan.
What Western Women think is attractive to men is not what men in any other country except Western Countries want. They are viewed as feminazis, narcissistic, histrionic, materialistic, shallow, and useless. Now I am not one to generalize, but even from my own experience, I cannot say this viewpoint is not that far from the truth. Why else do you think America has one of the highest divorce rates in the world?
And all of those things I just said do not come from my mouth, but from the mouths of others. Sorry if I offend anyone, as I do not mean to attack anyone personally. This is just what I have experienced and heard through my many travels around the world.
I think your problem was how you went about trying to meet people. I come from London, and strangers rarely talk to each other in busses or trains, or in coffee shops. At time, I was just waiting for a bus. I think it might be similar in Japan. Instead, you need to go to some kind of social club. Honestly, American men across the world are considered the best husbands and are held on a pedestal as the way a man should be.
As I stated in my earlier post, American women are valued on the other end of the spectrum. As I made clear earlier, this is NOT coming from my mouth or expereinces, but solely from what other men and women across the earth have told me. But after seeing women from all different cultures, I would agree that it is the blatent truth.
Looks are rather unimportant, but I will touch on them anyway, since you would think all that narcissism would be a positive influence on outward appearance. With obesity being such a problem, much of the population is already discarded.
Asian women are very attractive and fit too. Latino women are incredibly sexy as well. If you had paid more attention to Charisma Man and looked past his beards, baldness, middle age, stringy hair, you would notice that the Charisma Man meets Japanese women inside the Gaijin Bubble and they tend to stay there. When foreigners are primarily around other foreigners, they have virtual home field advantage when they meet and socialize with the opposite sex: But the reality is that any short term less than three years non-Japanese is going to spend the majority of their time in that bubble whether they want to be there or not or alone because admission into the Japanese bubble simply requires more time, experiences, and exposure than a year as an English teacher can provide.
Men, both in Japan and in Western cultures, are not expected to be submissive, despite the advances in sexual equality.
They are expected to lead. And if the relationship has legs, he can take his relationship back home to his native country, where he can continue to have home field advantage with respect to language, work, culture, and friends.
No chance of a long term relationship, as he knows that If he follows, he will live permanently outside his home field advantage. There are a few men that take that plunge, of course. But they are the minority.
There are always exceptions, of course some Japanese men love being in the Gaijin Bubble, and most Japanese women actually hate it. Sometimes yes — I mean, if they are from Hollywood. Truth is, in my opinion, talking to a stranger is not so common in Japan as you expect, especially among younger generation or in big cities like Tokyo and Osaka and maybe this is one of the reasons of the growing unmarriedness of the population here in the society going individualistic.
As a result, most guys here, including me, hardly know them personally and are scarcely so interested in them, from the first place.
