Online Dating

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.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.

Just use dating apps and suss the person out, you can tell a lot from the pictures and bio TBF.

Go on a cheap date and see if you connect. Nothing lost if not, a meal and some beers and maybe a new friend in the worst case, if they have their WhatsApp number of whatever linked to bio it's my general consensus that they're on their advertising.

It's not hard to just walk up to someone and start talking either, or perhaps go wingman your friend? Most people are looking for somebody in this world.

"Dating" good girls is difficult, especially if one isnt in-country/understands or familiar with Khmer culture

hahaha :beer3:

tbh i've "dated" good girls before, it can often be a frustrating mix of either...
them having very little time to actually go on "dates" due to either them working and/or having to be home by a certain time and/or needing a chaperone,
culturally being reserved etc.. eg. don't be expecting a hug after a date (and don't make the mistake in trying to give one either, things could get awkward)
or them being full on (emotionally, girls be catching feelings super quick)

for those unfamiliar with Khmer girls/culture, it could be difficult/frustrating, definitely not all cases mind but don't be surprised if going down the good girl route

If you try to date a good girl the same way you would in a western country, in most cases it wont happen.

If you learn about Cambodian culture, and approach it with an understanding of their culture, you can get to know good girls.

It is really easy to meet girls. Just start talking to them. Most girls are friendly and will talk to you. Some may speak English well, some may speak some English, and some may not speak English. Speaking Khmer gives you a big advantage.

In Cambodian culture, it is OK to ask someone you just met, if she is single, if she has a boyfriend, etc.

If you ask a girl for her phone number, or her facebook account, most girls will give it to you.

When she meets you again, expect her to bring a friend or friends with her.

If a girl lives with her family, they are normally happy if you visit her at home.

As she gets to know you more she will trust you more.

Cambodians will talk about you. If you are good to a girl, people will be saying good things about you. If you are not, they will tell everyone.

I have friends I can ring up and say, are you busy tomorrow evening? If not, I can say, lets meet at a certain restaurant, and they will. With some girls, I meet them at their place, and we go together.

It can be done if you learn about their culture, and do things appropriate in their culture.
