Expat wife not prepared for sexpat elements.

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.

Expat wife not prepared for sexpat elements.

Life as an Expat wife in South East Asia

7 Sept 2019

In 2013 we made the decision to move to Thailand and teach English.... We were prepared for a culture shock as that is what travelling is about, seeing the way others live and go about their daily lives. What I was not prepared for was the Sexpat elements.

When we were teaching it was nothing to have students, young girls and young boys, offering sexual favours for better grades. More so Mark was the recipient of the offers than me, and as a father of two daughters it was quite unnerving. As a wife it was also uncomfortable to watch young girls fawning over your husband of 20 odd years like he was a demi god.

We often would go out at night with a couple of male expat friends who honestly just wanted to have a peaceful drink without all the teasing and flirting games. Before we would leave to go out, they would always give me their money to hold for the night so if they were asked for money they could legitimately say they had none. This always amused me. Big tough men going out, but mum had to hold the money.

We have met many Expat ladies who arrive in South East Asia with their hubbies to start their dream life of retirement or change of life style. Unfortunately for some their hubbies are number 100 and before they know it he has headed off into the wild blue yonder with a new 20ish love of his life.

As far as trying to date and move on for them in a South East Asia country it is by no means an easy feat. Weeding out the sexpats from the rejected bitter men and the really really strange ones is a job on its own. We have had single Expat ladies go on dates only to be told as soon as they arrive “oh by the way so you don’t get the wrong idea, I only sleep with Ladyboys”.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

How can she be astute in some observations, but be so utterly clueless in others....oh ya, never mind.

For a while I thought you were using Google Translate to write the posts, and I’d respect that, but what kind of word is “bitchtitts”? Where did you study to say “menopause” instead of “period”?
