Bars, clubs and pubs oh my!
Not strange at all imo. I've come across quite a few original, no go customer girls in the bars that have clearly said to me they are interested in the right guy ie must be serious barang who wants marriage and children.Duncan wrote: ↑Fri Dec 13, 2019 1:23 pm It may sound strange but I know two girls that work in a bar and they have never ever gone out with a guy before , infact I dont even think a guy has ever even held their hand , been kissed or any more , so I think there must be a lot more like that , it's just a matter of meeting them.
One that I dislike is the dating in workplace, just I have seen that it is relatively common for Khmer-Khmer relationships. Who wants to see their wife all day at work and again at home? That's where the chambers of commerce come in, to meet professionals outside of your own workplace.
If you were Catholic, go meet at church events.
And if you send your parents One Grand a month they will believe you work in a garment factory and you're the fastest sewer in the province.

Wanted; 1 x non-working good girl with a job who hasn't been around the block because she is a decent girl but goes to bars to meet a guy who does go around the block until he gets sick of it.
Not many of those around.
You could lie about the last bit i suppose - but that probably wouldn't work, good girls usually have very finely tuned integrity detectors.
Hmmm... Maybe settle for someone just like yourself, that would be easier..
Will you, being a man of culture, enlighten me as to what a 'grey girl' is in Khmer context, please?Jamie_Lambo wrote: ↑Fri Dec 13, 2019 2:46 pmgreat posts,angkorjohn2 wrote: ↑Fri Dec 13, 2019 11:52 am although bedazzler does have a point Depends on your definition of "decent" there are thousands of nice khmers ladies who are very conservative who literally just go to cinemas, the various malls and khmer restaurants and BBQ places and tend not to drink and would run a mile from a foreigner unless you spoke khmer and were in it for the long game.
Then there is an element who have money (their own or family) and enjoy western influences who would tend to go to classier places - e.g. the bars around Bassac Lane, Hub Street Cocktaills, Cloud, Eden Mall (Ostra oyster bar and others), Oskar (although you also get a mix of grey girls there), higher end bars, battbong bar, various sky bars - Veeha and Eclipse seems popular, certain Khmer clubs - Vito, Domrey lounge, EPIC, bars in Russian Market especially sundown social club, probably the new duplex at chinese house as well.
The question is, are you a decent man? what do you offer? many of the ladies who you might qualify as decent would have no interest in your average western guy unless they were serious about being here long term, with a good stable job and ready to offer some form as well as not being a complete party animal. The fact that you've "done the girl bar scene" suggests you are hardly the catch that any of these decent ladies would be interested in.
If you mean a non-prostitute then go to any bar apart from those in the red light district
ill also add that your decent Khmer girls will more likely go to a Family KTV with their friends if they was to go out and drink, or to the beer garden restaurant places, i often go with my Khmer friends, was at a nice place on Koh Pich the other day with a lady friend and her best friend,
but i find Khmers like going out to socialise with friends, not off out on the pull, and would probably be embarrassed if you tried doing so, unless youre a cute guy of similar age and can speak some Khmer lol
and as multipox mentioned, most decent girls will usually have to be home at a reasonable time (8/9pm)
with you being here only a couple of weeks, it seems you still have quite a bit to learn about Cambodian culture, there are some great decent grey girls about, but the vast majority of decent ones ive met have been girls ive met through khmer friends, not ones ive pulled in a bar or club, the ones ive met there arent much better than bargirls tbh, fine if you just want a jump, but sometimes not worth the hassle
So, I don’t quote out the whole thread ill just add some quick comments below.
@ Bedazzler: Very good point mate cheers
@ Angkorjohn: Well noted regarding the recommended bars. Haha you hit the nail on the head with the (are you a decent man comment) LOL well I suppose ill have to say NOT
@ Explorer: Yep – here for work, Good point about the loss of face (understandable)
@ Spigzy: Not looking for teeny stunner mate, 30s to 40s (divorced & Kids ok) virginity not required. Noted: I probably should have worded things a bit better, meant no disrespect to anyone no matter the profession. Good point Re Auscham, Am a member in south china.
(in defence of the ladies) am well-travelled mate, noted.
@ Jamie: Agree, great posts. Have been asked to go to KTVs but the ones I see daily out on the #4 main road look pretty shitty. If there are more family orientated place in the city ill I have to go check em out. Yeah mate, I do have a bit to learn and not just about the locals hahah. Have just done 10 years in china so things are not that different here I suppose. Hmmm Grey girls, please explain.
@ Sternaalbifrons: Haha yeah mate lesson learnt, posted out of frustration lol. Ok ok so maybe I am not the catch of the day but hey.
I have had a lough reding through all and cheers.
Yep far from a decent bloke but hey, you only live once. Ill head out tonight and check out some of the recommendations.
To quote Mr Lambo from another place
"a grey girl is a girl that is not a white cloth anymore, usually used to describe sexually active girls who arent married
for me its just personal preference, i often find girls that have had Barang BF's before irritating, often picking up habits/traits from their Barang ex"
