Dating Lao men can be fun and quite lovely because they have a rich sense of humor, are patient, and are people with big hearts. Due to their culture they usually are shy and are more conservative, but they place a high value on family and friendships.

Keep in mind that the role of women in Lao society is still very traditional in comparison to Western values.
