Could some R & R be the answer to boosting Japan's declining population?
The Japan Times reports that according to a Yomeishu survey, 60 per cent of women in Japan are too exhausted to date because of work.
The survey was conducted nationwide among women between 20 to 39 years old.
For those who do score a date, too much work also has negative effects.
The survey found that 25 per cent of women have fallen asleep during a date.
Fatigue was cited as a factor that makes romantic feelings fade away, causes them to be easily irritated with a loved one, or even starts fights.
