Blind and traveling USA to Cambodia in two days!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Actually bro.... I'm thinking YOU have the required skills to pull off the troll of the year award... and your suggestion of seawolf is a red herring :hattip:

You can see it's NOT a troll - for example Angkor What (assistive spelling).

Just a case of a genuine bloke meeting a questionable lady - the old story.

It was entertaining and gripping though.

I'm going to the bars mentioned - purely for research... If I find a white cane in a corner I will let you know.

I look forward to your definitive results. Photos whether relevant to this case would be greatly appreciated though none of the dogs, please. I appreciate your "compliment" , as a native New Yorker I pride myself in spotting a fugazyi but have been known to spin a good yarn. Sometime, when you have a bit of free time, I will tell you the story of the day Seawolf and I saw a sheep with its head caught in the fence. haha

I take it that this was all a trolling experience ?

My offer of assistance was never taken up nor was the PM read.

You think because he stopped logging in or didn’t read your PM he must be a troll??

Posters who can actually see don’t even realize they have PMs, hence the phrase “check your PM”

Hi everyone. I'm sorry I went offline for a bit. It has been a whirlwind few weeks. I was the trip of a lifetime for sure, everything was amazing.

I’m back in the USA now. I appreciate everyone’s tips and advice offered. I have also read some of the negative comments here, but I won’t respond to them, life is too short.

After spending this time with my girlfriend in Cambodia I am convinced that she is a kind and genuine woman and I am going to try to apply soon for a visa for her to come to the USA. If anyone has any advice of that process I would appreciate it, as I here that the visas are hard to get. I don't think we are ready yet to think about marriage so I would prefer not to pursue a spouse or engagement visa unless absolutely necessary.

Thanks

I am no expert but, from having followed this and other forums, your chances of securing a visa are close to zero. The two of you do not exactly have a history and from your posts I gather that she does not meet most of the requirements (proof that she has reason to return to Cambodia being the most important one).
