Why not, they are a lot less needy in general and you can actually have a conversation with them, plus they won't want to get married after 5 minutes.
In the age of internet forums and social media who needs a conversation with a woman any more? Seriously, learning Khmer to an elementary (A2-B1) flirting level isn’t extremely hard, especially with a long-term plan of living here. Can be done in 3-6 months. Asian girls are much more fun when they are approached in their languages.

Sure, you have so much in common, you can talk all about K pop and how the Yuon is stealing the land.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

That’s irrelevant and as I have only seen one white woman in a relationship with a local in my entire time living in se Asia I also think you are wrong.

I am stating the obvious but the “yellow fever” is incurable after some time spent in Asia.
...most of us....
"fevered" is a good word

I meant that it's extremely unlikely that any white woman would have the slightest interest in you. Many of these posts about having "yellow fever" and "not being interested" in white women strike me as nothing more than sour grapes. 8)

That says more about the people that you mix with than anything else. Among my limited number of friends and acquaintances in Cambodia, (I am not excessively social), I know three couples of western women-Khmer guys, and two of them are married. This doesn't mean that there are A LOT of western women in relationships with Khmer guys, but it does suggest that your experience is only your experience, and that doesn't make it a fact.

Flirt defined

Stretch ones arms and show the fake gold Rolex. Take a tenner out of one's wallet and smile. Wait. Take another tenner out and wink. Wait Take the last five out and lick my lips, if there is no positive response mutter some obscenities and walk out.

LOL. That sounds like a winning method. What's your success rate ?

Yeah, it's like some guys revel in the fact that they have been played for a fool/made really bad choices with their women/have zero chance with anyone but hookers from the 2nd poorest country on the planet.
I don't get it. I would shut up if that were me.

And anyway, call me a liberal wanker if you like, but this racial dicotomy is largey bullshit these days - you find many mixtures of all different characteristics across the board - unless you see people solely thru a sterotypicalists lens.
Wake up.
