While Japanese society and the media continue to exhort - nay plead - with women to find marriage partners, an astonishing 60 percent of eligible women say they are uninterested in renai, according to online dating advice service cocoloni.
As sad as it sounds, the nation's women appear to have joined the ranks of men as overworked employees, too drained from the daily grind.
Have Japanese women given up on love? A cautious "Yes, sort of" seems to be the answer.
Although few women have the time or inclination for the rollercoaster ride of love relationships, a whopping 80 percent told cocoloni.
Lovely Media, another online dating site, says that a growing number of women are reluctant to "Waste time" on "Dating that leads nowhere." These women are eyeing childbirth - the longer they play the field, the higher the risks when it comes to pregnancy.
Shorter working hours, guaranteed maternity and paternity leaves, and a less forbidding atmosphere will go a long way in getting women to think about love.
