Cambodian lovers?

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.

Unlike most of the rest of Asia, it is probably almost as common to see a foreign woman with a Cambodian man as it is to see a foreign man with a Cambodian woman.
That's not a Cambodia I recognize.

I’ve known a relationship Khmer tuk tuk driver and young American girl.

Seems a rough dating pool for women here. I know in the professional workplace seemed heavily skewed towards women, not enough blokes with decent jobs. And the expat pool of men that isn’t sexpats, deathpats, or alcoholics/addicts is interested in Asian women.

Pardon?
If it needs to be explained then it needn’t be explained. Suffice it to say this kind of situations are not uncommon.
No seriously - what are you on about?
I'm confused too. Is it just me, or is this an okay to say that if someone says "NO", then it's okay to be 'insensitive' to what a girl might say? "Score whatever it takes..." reads like "Get me some of mine and to hell with what the other wanted".

If I have understood this wrong, then perhaps @rozzieoz is not the only one who has completely misunderstood you. So perhaps it does need explaining, because I am at a complete loss...
Insensitive in the sense that some girls ask for money before not after which takes away romantic feelings and turns this into a pure business transaction. What’s a man to do then? Be strong and score no matter, if nothing else it’s a good physical exercise.

^Agree. I just read the blog post from the link and it's a load of crap IMO.
He also says:
Cambodian women are generally disappointing. Physically, they are probably the least attractive race of women in Southeast Asia, and they do little to make up for this with their personalities. It is quite rare to see a foreign man in a long-term relationship with a Cambodian woman.
That was in 2009, then in 2011, he wrote this blog post, that I don't recognize either: http://www.roadjunky.com/1452/the-surre ... -cambodia/
Too much weed IMO. :bong:

it all seems simple to me;
If a girl /guy is working in a bar and you pay a bar fine to take her/him out ( dinner, dancing home to bed)
you should understand it is a business transaction and pay at the end of the night (or next morning)

If you pick her/or IF he picks you up at a bar, club, street, (and its a local)..... Than you need to ask if she/he is expecting something at the end of the night. Yea it may not be as romantic, but will avoid any confusion the next day

As to the kuta cowboys, I spoke with a few of them when i was down there in 2017, none of them came from Bali but all came from Java and all had regular local gf's and some had, ( more than 1) overseas gf's that supported them.

Phuket, Samui, Pattaya also have guys for rent. There the ones that work on the beach, ( same as the Kuta cowboys sans guitars) , renting jet-skis, parasailing.
The Japanese girls love them..
...It is quite rare to see a foreign man in a long-term relationship with a Cambodian woman.
BS :facepalm:

Too right! I just looked at that link:
"I laid in my $2 bed and thought about it, lighting a fat joint of my free bud and thinking about how filthy and worthless I was at that moment in my life. I had just arrived in Phomn Penh, Cambodia, the day before my 19th birthday."

Diary of a pennyless and brain dead Bogan! :plus1:

He was quite honest with you. If all the girls working in bars were that honest there would be a lot fewer guys with broken hearts in the Kingdom of Wonder.

It's totally ridiculous.
For $30 you could rent heavy weaponry and just go use it in the mountains, shoot whatever you like and no one would say anything about it.
After the standard 20 minute wait for the drink to arrive (everything was hand cut and smashed, blenders being non-existent in a country coming out of 60 years of war and genocide)
Across the lake was one of the worst shanties in the city. Over there, there would be no rats or dogs. Everything would be eaten.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I think you'd be surprised at the amount of foreign women in relationships with Cambodian males, many have kids and are married, many have moved back to their home countries together...it's just not very common to see these couples hanging around bars etc.
