Southeast Asian girls & long-term romance
If the casual life does not appeal to you and you are looking for a serious relationship, Southeast Asian girls are a good choice, and that is increasingly true as time goes by.
Mainstream Asian attitudes towards westerners have improved a great deal in recent years as foreign investment has poured into the region.
That investment has brought with it a body of respectable western visitors on overseas work-contracts and so on, and that in turn has stirred romantic curiosity levels amongst the ladies; even hi-society girls are starting to take an interest in us.
You’ll no doubt be astounded to read that, at one time, regular Southeast Asian ladies would routinely dismiss us westerners as a bunch of sex-tourists, and shun our romantic overtures...
Times have changed and that is no longer the case, but the biggest hurdle to long-term success still remains, and by that I’m referring to the culture gap.

Believe it or not, the vast majority of problems that occur with
cross-culture dating are due to simple misunderstandings of one sort or
another. You might assume that the language barrier is the biggest
problem, but many Asian girls have got a decent grasp of English, and
most of the others can easily find an interpreter to help out if need
Effective communication (not the same as language) is the key
and that is where most Westerners fall short in their efforts; you don’t
need to speak the local language and you don’t need your girl to speak
English fluently (although a basic grasp of English is obviously a
help), what you do need is some help to understand how Asian girls think
Their emotional responses in any given situation can
differ significantly to typical western feelings and emotions, and it
will take some time for you to get a handle on things. None of it is
insurmountable, and a little patience and effort will go a long way.
cultural differences all stem from good roots. Respect for parents and
older people, avoidance of confrontation, and maintaining face whilst
helping others to maintain theirs are the main driving factors.
