My guess is that many of these guys that end up looking for 'love' in Southeast Asia do so because that's the easiest option for them.

If you ask these guys why they fly all the way overseas to find a wife, they will usually come up with a long list of fancy sounding reasons about being compatible with their 'culture' and how Asian women are more 'feminine' ().

But the real answer in most cases is because to these guys it's easier to hook up with a woman from a third world country than it is trying to find a woman back home. And it's easiest to find these girls in the red light areas of Southeast Asia. These are women that have grown up in poverty in a third world country, who sell their bodies to feed their kids and families. So a lot of guys go to these bars acting like Bill Gates, and delude themselves into thinking that the prostitute they paid for somehow 'loves' them, and next thing you know he wants to 'save' her and her kids, and marry her and take her back to his home country.

I'm not saying this is the OP's situation, but it sure seems like it for many guys that go to these countries.

I guess they feel like king for a short while. Maybe that’s the temporary high.

Aren't you glad economics never drives relationships in the US. Bwahaha.

It should also be noted that older American women do the same EXACT thing. One could make an argument why the two don't 'hook up together'...but usually because the older American woman wants a hot guy that makes her feel good, like those Romance novels do...go to anywhere in the Caribbean or Turkey or Bali or wherever else, and you'll see their scenes just the same.

Interesting, I didn’t know about this. But you maybe right, a lady in my art class is looking for love in Turkey. But she did live in Turkey when she was younger.

Yup. Traveling to third world countries to look for "companionship" isn't the exclusive domain of the male gender. There's quite a profitable tourist business in places like the Dominican Republic and Haiti that caters to older financially well off white women looking for companionship albeit on a short term basis.

American women are too obsessed with the idea of being "independent". They don't want to be married. I need a homemaker. Most women in America look down on this perfectly respectable profession. Filipinas are willing to accept this role. The girl who wants to be "independent", well she can just go be "independent" by herself.

Please, by all means, continue your search for a housewife abroad. Self-respecting North American women want nothing to do with you.

It's not my position to judge, but how can a man live with a woman from the other end the world with children? I cannot imagine that life.

Of course it does, for both sexes/genders. But it's rare in the West that you'll see men talking openly and frankly about "renting girlfriends" or about how they're well aware the 20-year-old that their 50-year-old self is dating is with them only because they shell out cash, the way you do in places like Thailand.

Funny, I see it the opposite-- it's the men who want a woman who's 25 or younger and pretty enough to be way above their league in the west (although I see plenty of pretty women with some pretty goofy-looking guys in the west, too).
