Dating in Cambodia

What's the dating scene like in Cambodia? And what are the women like in general? How do they compare to Thai women?

I seem to remember reading a comment on a different forum (years ago) about most guys there either dating whores or going all in and committing to a very traditional girl, usually from a poor family. But that there's very little in-between. The couple times I've been there, my observation has been there's not that many attractive women there. Many of them are VERY petite (likely malnourished), to the point of looking like children. And they mostly come across as very conservative and/or too difficult to relate to in the sense that the country is just not developed enough to merit any kind of connection.

I'm not especially interested in Khmer women. I'm not thinking about moving there or anything. Just curious.

In my experience...

I'd say that Khmer women are generally less avaricious than Thais (they have lower expectations to be fair - Cambodia is poorer and so are most of the barang it attracts). They tend to be good fun and more mature than Thais (never dated a Khmer who threw a hissy fit over nothing - but dated plenty of Thais who have). They're less worldly-wise than Thais but in general - if you're not dating ladies of the night... they're also better educated for their positions in life. I never met a Thai waitress who could discuss philosophy, science or even business management (and in English) - I met dozens of Khmer who could. In general Khmer speak better English than Thais across the board (in big cities - the countryside is another matter).

Having said that Thais are more passionate, they're more sexually mature too (I think they've seen more porn to be honest) and fiery. I find Thais are funnier and more mischievous than Khmer. I also think that in general Thais are a little bit better looking than Khmer but... there are many exceptions to that rule on either side of the line.

Just got back from a visit to PP. All I found was what Eldragon (accurately) described as "dating whores or going all in and committing to a very traditional girl, usually from a poor family. But that there's very little in-between." - Thankful to come back to Thailand! wai2.gif

What percentage of the women do you feel are approachable/available to foreigners or whatever? More or less than Thai women? In Thailand, Im aware many girls are not interested in foreigners, or would be a bit uncomfortable talking to one, but I still feel like I can make a run at almost any one of em. The times Ive been to Cambodia Ive felt like very few of the girls are approachable. While, as you suggested, they tend to be a bit more sophisticated and share an attitude more similar to westerners, I get the feeling the lifestyles are way too far apart with a majority of the Khmer women. Is that accurate?

It depends on you. Khmer are open to dating other nationalities. But... they are a bit more traditional and there's a long courtship expected if you want a "good girl". They'd want to see you stable and established in Cambodia before going on a first date too. I had no problems finding Cambodian girls in Cambodia (and I don't speak Khmer or date hookers).

did not see a middle ground dating scene when i was there, only freelancers.
did not see any places at all that looked like normal people hookup/meeting spots, only dirty bars.

good luck in your search

That's because you have no idea what to look for. Good Khmer girls don't go to bars and nightclubs. You meet good Khmer girls everywhere - working in shops, on buses, working in offices, etc. If you're looking for a "hook up" spot in Asia - you're going to find prostitutes; if you're looking for a partner rather than a quick bang - you're going to find them absolutely everywhere you look. Cambodia is yet to have its "summer of love" and casual sex isn't a thing there (yet).

It would seem casual sex (via casual dating) is the middle ground that seems to be missing there.

Their noms are much bigger. Most of them speak Khmer and they are Buddhist. Money rules.

I must've been asleep when they taught that one. So I have to ask.. .What is a "nom" ?

i find the bodies are more curvy here in Kampuchea.. Everything seems to be dead on.. its all in mostly here, but if u are ready.. the women are very nice and would stay til the end.. seems to be less drama than thai women.. but everything said is accurate.. less sexual, more traditional, naive, and not much casual dating.. it is here but they are not taking it the same way u are.. there is a means to an end.. $/stability rules

Fascinating....and depressing discussion. Wonder what it's like living in a cave.

Please explain why the discussion is both fascinating and depressing, sounds like an oxymoron to me.

Truckloads of caves in Thailand if you want to try.

Dated a Cambodian immigrant in the US when I was living there. Bright, attentive and extremely hard working. Large family all living together in one small house and all working multiple jobs and getting college degrees to boot. Don't know what the local Khmer scene is like but my guess is that she was pretty typical of the females you might find working at decent jobs in Phnom Penh or other large cities. I had met her soon after she arrived in the US and she was quite sophisticated compared to other immigrants from Asia or even South America for that matter.

Family gave me the once over and she brought me home to meet them very early in relationship which I thought was odd. Almost like they were chaperoning as one of her sisters would invariably tag along part of the way (walk to the store with us or get coffee) and then disappear halfway through the date. Mother was extremely hospitable and I would always be offered tea and snacks anytime I stopped by.

Just my 2 cents on the part of Cambodian culture as I experienced it back home.

Nom = Milk = Breasts wai2.gif

In Cambodian markets there are more stalls selling padded bras than anything else, so I'd say a lot of the 'bigger noms' are padded noms.

I worked there back about 12 years, had some beautiful women in the company, but big noms weren't one of their attributes. Beautiful faces and slim bodies were.

Same as here,just open your wallet and the amount inside will determine what value and class you will get.

its important--skin color first- then wallet, in saying- there are some real genuine girls here- depends on your priorities and where u are in life..

Hookers ? Maybe foreigners don't need to marry them in Cambodia as anybody can 1 year visa easily (no marriage visa needed) ?

You are right...Hookers are for bucking there. No need to marry a hooker and risk losing everything your last ex-wife didnt get just to try to stay and own land like a lot of men do in Thailand. You can extend your visa indefinately for 300 a year. No need to worry about depositing money in an account bullshit. 800,000 baht is a nice ranch style house in cambodia. Eventually Thailand ends up with all that you try to loophole around to keep. Silly Rabbits...Tricks Are For Kids...
