You don't need a dating website to get a wife in Cambodia.
The type of wife you want is the key to your future happiness. I suggest you keep away from the bar girls and look for a traditional type of lady. You need to give more info on just who you are and what you are looking for.

I would concur that neither introduction services nor bars are a good place to start.

If you are already in Cambodia, I suggest putting yourself in position to interact with as many locals as possible (such as by using mom-and-pop retail instead of malls and fast food), and if you're not already here, then I suggest coming here on a 30-day visa and just seeing what happens.

I met a positively amazing young woman here but it was entirely by accident: I wasn't looking for anything more involved or sordid than a flat sheet and a couple of pillows, and she happened to be the person whose turn it was to attend to the next customer.

And suggest in doing so you make it clear from the start you are looking for a WIFE.

Many foreigners make the mistake of saying they are looking for a GIRLFRIEND....because this is the way it is mostly done in the west ie girlfriend first with view to potential wife.

For traditional khmer girls and families however, they are likely to misinterpret and think your intentions are not serious if you say GIRLFRIEND.

There are exceptions of course with some 'modern thinking' girls who consider girlfriend before marriage/wife but I think most 'good' khmer girls will still think the traditional way.

That reminds me of "I met this beautiful girl in a bar but she didn't speak English. Then she drew a picture of a bed, and I was mystified how she could possibly have known I was a carpenter".

Facebook is your friend, especially in Cambodia. Know all about the girl before ever meeting her. Conversely, she will know all about you before ever meeting you.

The most happy marriages usually involve couples that have similar interests and goals, similar educational levels, and of course physical chemistry.

May you find your soulmate.

Good luck OP!

Not if either of you have half a clue about privacy settings.

Facebook won't tell you much about anyone other than that they probably like taking selfies with their friends in Brown Coffee, like using hilarious puppy filters, like to post pictures of themselves looking miserable for sympathy and their favourite way to express themselves in comment is by using a laughing puppy smiley. Cute nas?

I'm gonna agree with NKOTB on this one. I reckon you can discern a hell of a lot about a girl on FB.

You get the self absorbed ones that are constantly taking selfies of herself...avoid, self centered.

The ones that are constantly posting news about other people's problems...a caring, unselfish girl concerned for other people. Caveat: could be serious type tho.

The ones that post pics with friends at night clubs, drinking at restaurants etc....party girl..beware drinking habit

The ones that post pics of winning money, gold jewelry, fancy cars etc...gold digger

The ones that post funny pics and jokes...could be light hearted girl with sense of humour

The ones that constantly post movie trailers and youtube videos....phone addicted girl. Caveat: maybe shallow

The ones that are constantly posting irrelevant stuff...bored or seeking attention girl

I'm sure there are many more scenarios and/or combinations of the above. But as I said, I think it tells you a lot about someone's persona imo.

Edit: Have a look at her friends list..many barang there? Many men friends?

Have a look at her interests and hobbies by way of what pages she likes or groups she's joined.

Does she project a positive or negative view of the world?
