The member article list 10 countries of Southeast Asia for the
probability of having genuine love relationships without entering a formal
marriage. What is a genuine love relationship? A love affair is different
from a purely sexual score. I would measure the genuineness of a love
relationship by evaluating the separation stress it were to cause the
female part. If the girl or young woman would not shed tears when the
relationship were to break, then itís not a love relationship.

all women in Southeast Asia definitely would prefer a marriage over any
other relationship with a man.

beauty, you canít always get what you want. And to have a shot at a really
good opportunity (a rich foreigner), you have to take a gamble.

to a marriage.
Under what circumstances girls and young women will agree to what,
varies greatly in the different countries of Southeast Asia.
In some countries, purely material considerations go a long way; in
others, a good excuse does the trick. Again, in another country, showing
determination, and a considerable amount of sweet talk, is the best

one-night stands, for easiness of having sex, for quickness of landing in
bed, for hygienic safety, the availability of virgins, and sex with
female students in exchange for some economic support.
