    Another cause for divorce? I know three couples already that have broken up because of the chat line addiction.

    In a group gathering I witnessed a lady who sat there and spoke romantically with a guy on her chat line while her husband was sitting by her. I guess everyone was wondering why she was doing that, but I was the one most surprised. Now she and her husband aren’t together anymore.

    Is this something only I am noticing or are you guys noticing this too? And I especially notice it with the donut owners and bakers. Graphic pictures are also received/sent. One kid showed me what her mom was sending to her chat line guy. I was shocked.

    If you don’t live or hang out with a lot of Khmer people, then maybe you might not witness much of this chat line acitivity. Basically, if a person’s constantly on the phone (I’m talking about from morning to night/morning) , more than likely, they’re on the chatline.

    Is this craze now a staple in our Khmer community or is it a fad?

    This is news to me, but then again, I don’t know many married couples. First of all, aren’t these chat or hot lines targeted at men? What kind of chat lines are these women calling? Also, imagine the phone bills these women are racking up. I think it’s a sign of a bad marriage lacking excitement and intimacy.

    must be something unique to the West Coast Khmers?
    what do you mean by chat line? online chatting? or just talking on the cell phone?

    Huge problem in some ares, Long Beach, Modesto, Stockton, Fresno, catching on in the Vegas area too now. I know about these ares because I know people living in these areas. I don’t know about the East Coast though.

    These are numbers that you can call. Once you’re in, you’ll hear people singing to each other, flirting/speaking romantically to each other/fishing, friends catching up on old times, people announcing who they want to find/old friends, people cursing/using swear words.

    Basically the people who go on say it’s a fun, recreational activity.

    Guys and girls call these numbers. You can use your lanline or cell.

    And it’s all Khmer people that go on there. They are KHMER ONLY chatlines. I guess that’s the attraction, people get addicted to this activity because there is this romantic notion that you are with so many other Khmer folks and you speak the same language.

    I guess that’s why they say they have fun, I don’t know. And once they introduce it to someone else, that person gets hooked too.

    And it gets passed on and on…much like a disease almost.

    Do you know the number and who’s in charge of creating these kinda lines?.. If it’s a major problem, then there must be sth done to help out with their addiction. Maybe if pple can shut down the lines?..
    And I’m also wondering, how can pple talk all at once on one line?… How can you stay one a line with so many pple, when are you gonna be given the chance to talk if they’re hogging the line?.. I can’t imagine; I’d probably yell in that line and hang up.

    Surely sounds like one…a mental disease…especially infront of your S/O. If you rather stay on the phone or online vs the person physically infront of you…yeah…you have a major problem.

    Sounds like paltalk. You know, online chatting where you can talk on the mic. Anyways, if it’s a phone calling chat thing, then I’ve never heard of it. I hang out with plenty of khmer people…noone I know has done this. Maybe it’s just a USA thing?

    I have never heard of either chatline or gline. If a spouse is looking for fun outside the marriage, they’ll find any means even if the lines didn’t exist.

    The trend isn’t catching on in Canada and I hope it stays that way. I prefer knowing my mother watches thai lakorns, rather than thinking she’s exchanging nude pictures with some dude. SICK!

    You gotta hang out with them a lot to see/know it. If you talk to a lot of old folks and ask around, they’ll tell you they know someone/people who are always on it.

    Like gambling, the chatline is the new addiction or an added addiction.

    i admit; i use to go on that chatline thing late at night…that’s back in 2003 though lolz. i can’t believe i use to go on there even when im on my lunch break. i blame it on my ex; he’s da one that introduce me to it, but his gay butt goes on there to cuss ppl out, tryin’a represent his gang 7126, soo gay. i would catch him on there sometimes; i would say ” man, F trg. F roaches” lolz..he’ll be like..”babe??? is that u..go to bed” gline is soo addicting, but i wouldn’t go on there again. well maybe..just for fun, if u can get me the number lolz
