OK I'll start a thread about Cambodia.
I dated a Cambodian lady this lunchtime. She was very nice, so maybe Cambodia is worth a look if you're marriage minded.
On the downside her backstory was fairly tragic. She's one of 7 siblings, and her parents are both dead. Not sure what happened, her English wasn't that great. She and her sister work in Thailand to support the younger siblings.
Anyway, the lady herself was very nice, very friendly and definitely the type of lady guys seeking wives should seek out. Forget 9's like the Myanmar lady I met, she was a nightmare
Cambodian lady was about the same tall as Falcon's Issan lady. So not that tall, but taller than the tiny Thai girl I met yesterday (who was 4' 11"). Cambodian lady's accent kind of suggested she wasn't Thai. She sounded (and also looked) more Filipino than anything.
Like many ladies from that part of the world, she hadn't had much schooling. But she seemed to have common sense, which is always a good thing.
Oh, and she passed the "let's eat at the really cheap food court" test .
So to have dated the complete set of Asian ladies, I need to find a Korean, a Malaysian and a Laotian. Maybe I should add in HK and Singapore.
I'm interested in going to Cambodia. I would likely teach there, but the pay isn't great. But from what I have read, the culture is warm, and the ladies are nice. It's still fairly unknown it looks like, although I know tourism and TEFL are slowly picking up. It really sounds like a place similar to the Philippines, except it hasn't been "discovered" yet. (And that's a good thing.)
I think the only problem for guys who want a Cambodian girl is if they are above 50 years old, they can't marry there, from what I've read. But then there's always the option of taking her to another country and marrying her, I suppose.
Interesting. Seems counter intuitive and doesn't make sense when you consider that (usually) older men have more income than younger, which would indirectly mean that more of those resources would somehow find their way back to Cambodia even if the couple moves to another country (the woman would still be sending some kind of support back home I'm assuming).
well I wouldn't call it "undiscovered", but yeah cambodians are nice ppl and the girls are very approachable. But watchout for pro's, very common. But in general the girls are very flirty, I dated and banged my hostel receptionist, a girl I met in a barbery shop and a girl I meet in a park playing badminton. Generaly i would say that they look slightly better then thai girl's, but thai girl's are more fun.
There are many nice women in Cambodia, they are very feminine and petite.
However, I sure as hell wouldn't want to live there. Many Cambodians have a "money-milking" attitude towards foreigners, and touts are numerous, aggressive, relentless, and don't take no for an answer.
Cambodia wore me down, and I don't have any plans on going back there as of yet.
Cambodians are like Thais used to be say 20-30 years ago but in recent years I have seen a change in them and it's not for the better. They tend to be less worldly but it really depends on the class of woman you're dealing with. Like Thai women, the upper-middle class or upper class Cambodians tend to shy away from foreigners and it's difficult to get to know them well enough to see a relationship form or progress.
