Dating london thai ladies
First, amazing you could write that….i still couldn’t do so in Korean haha. I also have had trouble making any korean friends, but at the same time I understand because we really don’t have too much in common.Sometimes it seems Their interests are all so different than mine.The guys who work in the bars and the tattoo shops and as musicians, depending on where they’re located, have more interaction with Westerners in general (I hate that label, like we’re an entirely different type of people) and have better English skills. It looks like being a ‘white’ women in this country is not an easy thing! I’ve been in thailand since may 2011 (exactly as long as you have) and know personally eight white women (and one guy) of my age or close to my age some of whom are dating most of whom are married to thai men. Like, I said though, I also still haven’t manage to make any good friends who are Thai, so maybe my social life here as been more limited than I think? Reply I always joked that ‘the good Thai boys are only interested in dating the good Thai girls’ – there is such a strong stigma about dating a Wild Western Woman that most guys seemed to shy away from the idea.Saving face is a huge deal in Thailand and there’s a fear, like with any foreign language, about speaking English and looking stupid if speaking incorrectly. But I guess there is a thing in common with all the relationships: you never know where and when you will meet the special someone! I lived in CM for almost 3 years and did my fair share of dating – and not *all* of them fell into the bartender/bar owner/tattoo artist/tour guide/musician group! I was in school when I first came, so I dated some students, too – and had the same problem you mentioned about really making friendships beyond a surface-level friendliness.

I’m sure there will be some :) Reply Well, I can read Thai and know the words but couldn’t type on my com, so had to put them into a translating dictionary and copy/paste :) I was pretty proud of myself though…and then a little let down by the response! I’m pretty much Thai and have been dating farang girls most of my life. At times we found it quirky to be in a relationship that was “against the grain”, but that’s what made it so much better. and thai people (especially ladies) would make sure I know that I was “lucky” and that she is a beautiful girl and that they wish they could be in my position. I think the image has just been tarnished because of all the ‘sexpats’ that come here by the truckload.
True about the interests and having things in common – it can be a fine line between learning about another’s interests and even you don’t share them you want to know more and simply just not connecting before your tastes are so different. I just prefer their attitude over the jealous, gossipy, outrageous Thai girls. Sometimes people would presume I was her ‘helper’ of some sort or a ‘translator’. I’m not even talking about the old german/english dudes that end up in patpong/pattaya, but the frat boys/douchebags that come here after watching movies like the hangover 2. Reply The whole thing is just kind of odd isn’t it?
I hear stereotypes from all sides about why Thai women like a Western man and not Thai men, why Western men like Thai women instead of Western women, and vice versa.
