The Malaysian dating scene
Okay, if you’ve read this far then you’ll probably want to know some practical methods of meeting up with some Malaysian women and what to expect from them.
I have 3 main points to make:
- Forget about the bar scene, the online scene is much easier. The girls in the bars are usually prostitutes and are usually immigrants from nearby countries.
- Malaysian women are much more selective than other Asian women and they usually state that they are looking for someone of similar age to themselves.
- Casual dating, and sex before marriage, was traditionally taboo but that is no longer the case. Younger Malaysian women are less tied to traditional practices.
From point 2 you’ll probably gather that dating in Malaysia is much more akin to dating in the west, which means that this is not a country to find a beautiful lady half your age who will pretend that you are some sort of superstar… that sort of thing is great fun, but it’s not reality!
The good news is that the relationships that are forged with
Malaysian girls are more likely to be the real thing and less likely to
be based on money.
However, you may be disappointed to know that a dowry
payment is still expected. This will apply with Malay or Chinese
Malaysians but you might have better luck with Indian Malaysians; in
Indian culture the groom does not pay a dowry, the parents of the bride
You will find more online girls located on the main Malaysian
peninsula, but there are opportunities for romance in North Borneo too.
My preference would be to stick with Kuala Lumpur as your dating
territory for the same reasons that I recommend Bangkok in Thailand i.e.
it’s there that the largest numbers of ladies reside and you won’t need
to do much travelling in search of the next girl if the current one
fails to impress.
Most tourists visit either Kuala Lumpur or
nearby cities on the main peninsula, but the island of Penang is also a
good choice. In North Borneo you’ll find that Sabah and Kuching are the
main tourist destinations and, of the two, Kuching is regarded as being
Singapore was, for a time, part of the Malaysian federation but it only
lasted a few years due to difficulties with integrating the
predominantly Chinese population. The island state gained full
independence in 1965 and has since built one of the most successful
economies in the world with GDP per capita rates far in excess of most
western countries. As you can imagine, hooking up with Singaporean girls doesn't usually allow a simple low cost lifestyle…
women come with all the social appetites that other Asian girls come
with in terms of gaining face and respect from their compatriots. Many
families put car ownership at the top of their wish-list even if their
accommodation is in dire need of improvement. All self-respecting
Malaysian women adorn themselves with gold jewellery if they can afford
it, and the latest mobile phone is a must have accessory.
Rawa Island, one of many beautiful Malaysian islands.
English language skills are used in the business environment, knowledge
of English actually elevates a person’s class, so one reason why western
men are successful with Malaysian women is due to their ability to
teach English to their girlfriends. This is also typical of other
Southeast Asian countries, but I’d say that it is even more significant
Malaysian men often travel to Thailand for fun with
Thai girls; the wealthier Malaysian women are a bit like western women
and can be demanding – keeping a girl happy is sometimes a high
maintenance job. Bangkok is a popular retreat, Hat Yai in South Thailand
is also popular due to its close proximity to the border.
