Dating Cambodian girls can be an adventure. But it can also be your death.
I will never forget the day I landed in Phnom Penh.
I wasn’t even alive 50 years ago but I finally understood why everyone kept saying that Cambodia is like Thailand 50 years ago. I mean, holy shit. I thought that I was trapped in some kind of Western movie.
In case I ever accidentally kill someone with my homemade Tom Yum Goong, I know that I will hide somewhere in Cambodia, the land of the outlaws and drunk foreigners.
It’s a weird country that has many problems.
Khmer girls are beautiful and make you feel alive.
I can understand why you want to date Cambodian girls. I really do. And if you are up for an unforgettable adventure in a country that’s crazier than Gotham City before Batman learned to walk, you should better read the following 24 facts twice…
1. Dating Cambodian Women Makes You Feel Like a Celebrity
Cambodia is crazy, wild and unpredictable.
It’s not a place where you take your wife and kids for a nice family vacation. I also haven’t seen any expats who works in a local bank or software company. The only people I saw were old foreigners who drink more beer in one day than the average German in a lifetime.
What does that mean for your dating success in Cambodia?
Well, as long as you are…
- A Western man
- Not an alcoholic
- Not addicted to meth
- Dressed like a decent human being
…Khmer women will treat you like a king.
You don’t need to be an actor to feel like a celebrity. You just have to come to Cambodia.
In fact, I was shocked at how many girls stared at me. I haven’t experienced anything like that before, not even in the Philippines.
Just be careful that you don’t fall for the wrong girl, just because she has the brightest smile.
2. Good Cambodian Girls Avoid You When You Look Like a Sex Tourist
Cambodia has a dark side that you hopefully stay away from.
The moment you land in Phnom Penh you’ll see the dark side. Street hookers are everywhere. Shady men with catalogues approach you on every corner. But it gets worse. One of three prostitutes is under 18.
I’m not a saint but this is disturbing, dangerous and disgusting.
And it has ruined the reputation of Western men. As a decent man who wants to know how to get a Cambodian girlfriend who doesn’t work in a bar, you have to overcome one major stumbling block.
You need to convince her that you are not a sex tourist.
How do you do that?
Well, you could approach girls with “excuse me, I’m not a sex tourist but I think that you are really beautiful”. You could do that but it’s kind of weird.
There are a few other things you can do that are not that weird:
- Wear jeans instead of cargo shorts.
- Wear a nice shirt instead of a wife beater with the imprint “I love Cambodia”.
- Drink water instead of beer (you might not believe it, but this can make a huge difference)
- Rent an apartment that’s not in a red light district.
If you follow this advice, you exponentially increase your chances to meet good girls in Cambodia.
3. Cambodian Girls Speak Better English than Thai Women
This surprised me.
Apparently, Cambodia is Thailand 50 years ago. That’s why I assumed that nobody speaks English.
I was wrong.
Cambodian girls speak better English than Thai women. I don’t know why, but most girls I talked with online and in Phnom Penh could actually talk to me. That was the last thing I expected.
Don’t worry. You don’t have to learn the Khmer language to date Cambodian girls. But I have to continue to study Thai.
4. Most Western Men Overlook Cambodian Women
Cambodia is a relatively small South East Asian country with 15 million inhabitants.
Yes, that’s smaller than Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines, but that doesn’t mean that there are no beautiful women among these 15 million people. There are a lot of beautiful girls and many of them are single.
Most of them are looking for a Western boyfriend.
They dream about their Western prince, but he never comes. They desperately want to meet decent Western men, but the only guys that show up are alcoholic sex tourists.
For some reason most Western men overlook Cambodian women.
In case you are one of them, you miss out on a huge opportunity. Thousands of men compete for the attention of girls on ThaiCupid, VietnamCupid, and FilipinoCupid but nobody is looking for Cambodian girls on AsianDating.
The last time I logged into my account, I saw thousands of young Khmer girls. They are waiting, and waiting, and waiting…
5. AsianDating is the Best Khmer Dating Site (Because Cambodia Cupid Doesn’t Exist)
Cambodia is the only South East Asian country that didn’t get its own international dating site from the Cupid Media group. Heck, even Malaysia got one.
Maybe there will be a Cambodia Cupid in the future. Right now it doesn’t exist. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t meet sexy Khmer girls online.
You can. You just have to know where to look for them.
The only Asian online dating site where you can chat with thousands of beautiful Cambodian women is called Asiandating.com.
The site has more than 2.500.000 active members and many of them are from Cambodia.
Give it a shot and you’ll see how shocked (in a positive way) they are when a guy like you sends them a message. I experienced it firsthand. They couldn’t believe that I wanted to meet them. That’s how amazing it is when you connect with girls that other men ignore.
6. Marriage Agencies are the Worst Option to Meet Cambodian Ladies
I did a lot of research about marriage agencies in Cambodia and even though I’m sure that there are some legit agencies, I can’t paint a beautiful picture.
A conversation with a guy who has a Khmer girlfriend confirmed my suspicion.
- Some of these agencies are run by Cambodian men who want to scam foreigners.
- Others are run by foreigners who have the same intention.
- Most female members are prostitutes who get a commission whenever they scam a guy.
Please be careful.
In case you know of a legit Cambodian marriage agency, you can share it in the comments below. If not, you should stick to AsianDating.
7. Getting a Date in Cambodia is Easier than Getting a Date in Thailand (But Harder than In the Philippines)
Why is it so easy to get a date in Cambodia?
- The girls speak English.
- As a white guy you have celebrity status.
- Most Western men don’t even consider dating Khmer women.
No competition, no problems.
But even though it’s ridiculously easy to get a date with a Cambodian woman, it’s still harder than in the Philippines, at least when you don’t speak the local language.
8. You Will Love Cambodian Girls if You Like Small Dark-Skinned Asian Women
Do you like small women?
Do you like dark-skinned women?
Do you like Asian girls?
If you answer these three questions with “hell yeah”, you will love Cambodian women.
The average Thai woman is 1.59 meters tall. The average Khmer woman is 1.52 meters tall…or should I better say small? They are tiny, cute and have darker skin than Thai and Filipina girls.
But the fact that they are so tiny and cute can get you into big trouble…
9. Dating a Cambodian Girl Requires a Passport Check
I’m not kidding.
Dating in Cambodia can get you into big trouble, even if you are not looking for it.
Because most girls in this country are cute little midgets, it’s easy to assume that every girl you meet is over 18.
If I were you, I wouldn’t rely on my judgement.
Believe me. You don’t want to end up in a hotel room with a girl who is under 18 and who threatens to call the police when you don’t give her money. I don’t say that the average Cambodian girl will do this, but if you are unlucky enough to fall for a girl who works as a prostitute, you are at risk.
My advice: Check her passport. No exception.
I want to help you to get a Cambodian girlfriend. I don’t want you to rod in a prison in the crazies South East Asian country in the world.
10. Cambodian Chinese Girls Won the Genetic Lottery
The locals call them Khmer kat Chen and even a blind man could see that they won the genetic lottery. They are stunning.
Apparently, mixing wild and dark-skinned Khmer genes with soft and light-skinned Chinese genes produces some of the most beautiful women in South East Asia.
That’s all I have to say.
11. You Should Tell the Women of Cambodia That You are a Virgin
No, I don’t mean that you should tell them that you never had sex. You should tell them that you are a Cambodia Virgin.
They love guys who visit the country for the first time. Guys who visit the country for the first time are no sex tourists who come the fiftieth time. It’s that simple.
Put yourself in her shoes and imagine you were a beautiful Cambodian girl.
You don’t want to date a guy who spends every holiday in the Wild West of South East Asia. You know that he could have a more comfortable vacation on a beach in Thailand.
What about the guy who visits the first time?
“He wants to experience an adventure. He wants to know what it’s like in this country. And because he’s never dated a Khmer girl, he’s much more likely to fall in love with me. “
12. Say No When a Cambodian Lady Offers You a Drink
Yes, one does, at least when one is in Cambodia.
The people in this country are nice and friendly. But most of them are also dirt poor. Never forget that, especially not when you step into one of Phnom Penh’s shady bars. If you are not careful, you’ll lose your wallet, your passport…and your consciousness.
The scam is simple:
- A local (probably a pretty young lady) approaches you with two glasses.
- She smiles and makes you believe that you are more attractive than Ryan Gosling.
- You take a sip from the glass and suddenly your left hand has seven fingers.
- You wake up without your belongings but with your life (if you are lucky).
So yeah…one does turn down free beer.
13. 95% of the Sexy Cambodian Girls in Irish Pubs are Prostitutes or Freelancers
Do you know why there are so many Irish pups in South East Asian countries?
Once upon a time a smart Asian dude figured out that some Western men are stupid enough to pay the same price for a beer than back home when you write “Irish Pub” on the wall of the building.
Siem Reap has one. Phnom Penh has many. And the hookers know that 100% of the guests are foreigners.
Why should they go anywhere else to make a living?
I don’t want to take away your illusion but the sexy Cambodian girl in the tight miniskirt who “accidentally” sits next to you is not here because she likes the beer. She’s here to hunt and you are her prey.
14. Dating Cambodian Women is Fun Because She Dreams of You
You don’t believe me?
Then have a look at the local men she can choose from.
I don’t want to be rude and I’m sure that there are a lot of good men in this country, but let’s have a look at the facts.
Cambodian men are way smaller than the global average, but drink a lot more alcohol. Dr. Yal Daravuth, who works for the World Health Organization in Cambodia, says that “it’s a big public health concern because they don’t just drink a little…the drink a lot.”
I think I don’t have to tell you that too much alcohol leads to aggressive behavior. In fact, it makes the local men so aggressive that 25% of all Cambodian women experience domestic violence. This was revealed by a national survey in 2008.
As a man who doesn’t drink five beers before noon and treats her with respect, you are already more desirable than the local men. In Cambodia “men are gold and women are fabric”. She dreams about a man who treats her like gold and she will shine when you do.
15. Even Thick Cambodian Women are Thinner than Western Women
I like curvy women. And I like Asian women. But it’s no secret that this combination is hard to find in South East Asia.
Not in Cambodia.
I was surprised at how many curvy girls I saw. I expected them to have less curves than Thai girls. Or maybe they just looked curvier because they are smaller. I don’t know.
All I know is that this country has beautiful curvy inhabitants and that no matter how thick your Cambodian girlfriend is…she’s still thinner than the average Western woman.
16. Every Cambodian Girl You Meet Thinks That You Are Rich
The economy in Cambodia is on the rise. Wages are increasing. But that doesn’t change anything about the fact that most people in this country earn less than $200 a month. That’s not even enough to rent a decent place.
That’s why every Cambodian girl you meet thinks that you are rich.
That’s good and bad at the same time.
It’s good because your higher salary makes you even more desirable. You don’t drink excessively, you don’t beat women AND you earn more than $1000 a month. You are the perfect catch.
The downside is that she might just see a dollar bill on two legs when she looks at you. It’s your job to find out if she wants a guy who treats her good or a guy who buys nice things for her BEFORE you marry her.
17. Pretty Cambodian Ladies are Pretty Conservative
I don’t want to hurt your feelings but if you meet a girl who goes to your place (after talking to her for 5minutes) and jumps in the shower (after another 5 minutes), she’s not girlfriend or wife material.
She’s probably a hooker or a girl who expects more money for the taxi than the taxi costs.
Listen carefully: A traditional Cambodian girl would NEVER do that.
- She won’t give you her number in front of other people.
- She won’t take her clothes off in front of you.
- She won’t sleep with you on the first date.
You should give her the time she needs because the girls who need time are the ones who make good girlfriends and wives.
18. You Better Avoid Cambodian Karaoke Girls and Street Hookers
I don’t know where you are from but there’s a high chance that you are from Western Europe, the USA or Australia.
Let me ask you a question:
Would you date a girl back home who has the following qualities and experiences?
- She has no formal education and can neither read nor write.
- She has experienced sexual abuse as a child and was sold by her own mother.
- She has sex with strangers who give her $5 more if she leaves the condom in the handbag.
That’s the sad reality of these girls and to be honest, if you came here because you want to give a street hooker $5 more to take off the condom, you can fuck of now.
However, if you dream about having a beautiful Cambodian girlfriend, you should avoid the Karaoke girls and the street hookers and read this article to the very end.
19. There’s a 99% Chance that the Girl You Are Dating Lives With Her Family
Let’s say you meet a girl who really likes you. Even though she is conservative, she slept with you on the first date. You like her too and you want her to spend the night with you.
Don’t be surprised when she says “no”.
This doesn’t mean that she doesn’t like you. She does. It’s just that her parents would kill her if they found out that she spent the night with you. And believe me, they will find out because her bed is empty.
No matter if she’s 18 or 28, she still lives with her parents.
It’s normal in the Khmer culture that daughters live with their parents until they get married. You better respect that, especially when you want to see her again.
20. Getting Bored with a Cambodian Girl is Nearly Impossible
Being around Cambodian women is fun. I can’t deny that.
They are shy when you meet them the first time but as soon as they trust you, they transform into bubbly entertainers who love to have fun and joke around. Making sure that you have a good time is their top priority.
And even though it doesn’t get boring with them, this entertainer mindset has a downside…
21. Having a Deep Conversation with a Cambodian Girl is Impossible
I tried it. I really did. But it’s impossible.
Having a deep conversation about political or philosophical topics is impossible in this country. Let me know if you find a Cambodian girl who knows who Donald Trump is and I write a personal apology letter at the end of this article.
But why are Cambodian women so uneducated?
It’s not their fault.
The history of the country destroyed the education system. To be more precise, the communist movement of the Khmer Rouge destroyed the education system. In this time more than 1.5 million people were killed, mostly educated people, teachers and professors.
It will take a long time until you can meet a Cambodian girl who is not only beautiful but also educated.
22. When You Are Dating a Cambodian Girl She Wants You for Life
It’s easy to get a date with a sexy Cambodian girl. It’s a lot harder to break up with her.
Please remember that this is a traditional country. The girls are conservative in every way. A boyfriend is almost the same as a husband and marriage is for life. That’s what they believe.
If you are looking for a loyal Cambodian bride, this is what you want.
What if you want to get rid of her after one night?
Expect tears and a broken heart.
23. Having a Relationship with Your Cambodian Girlfriend Can Cost More Than You Think
Cambodian women earn three times less than Thai women. The infrastructure is worse than in Thailand and the quality of the apartments is also worse.
But the prices are the same.
I was shocked when I found out that the prices in Phnom Penh, a city with 1.5 million people, are the same (sometimes even more expensive) than the prices in Bangkok, a city with more than 10 million people.
If you think that living in Phnom Penh with your Khmer girlfriend is cheaper than living in Bangkok with your Thai girlfriend, you need to think again.
24. Having a Relationship with a Beautiful Khmer Girl is Easier than You Think
But even though the cost of living is surprisingly high, dating Cambodian women can still be worth it.
Not just because your future girlfriend combines traditional family values with a fun and playful attitude.
It’s also very easy to get a long-stay visa that allows you to stay in Cambodia for a whole year. In Thailand you have to jump through hoops to stay for more than six months. Believe me, I live there.
- It’s easy to meet beautiful Cambodian women, especially when you join AsianDating.com.
- It’s easy to date these girls because they want a man like you.
- It’s easy to stay in Cambodia to spend time with your girlfriend.
What are you waiting for?
Summed Up Wisdom
Dating Cambodian girls is fun. Most of them can speak English and due to the fact that one in four women experiences domestic violence (and because of a bunch of other facts), these girls want to meet Western men more than anything else.
The funny thing is that they are ignored by most Western men. Everyone is looking for Thai girls on ThaiCupid and for Filipinas on FilipinoCupid but nobody is looking for Cambodian women on AsianDating. They are lonely and waiting for your message.
Meeting sexy Cambodian girls online is definitely better than going to shady bars. You avoid getting robbed and ending up in bed with a girl who doesn’t know what a condom is. Oh, and it’s easy to get a visa and to spend time with your girlfriend.
