There was a lovely story posted recently on Dan about Thailand by a guest writer whom shared the story of his Thai wife moving back to Scotland with him. In general it was met with lot’s of good messages of support across the social networks and as a post in one day it surpassed 5,000 page views.
It proved without question a very popular blog for others to read. However, there were a few who could say nothing nice about this relationship and it actually turned quite personal to the couple in question. The subject of a Thai girlfriend seemed to invoke much anger from many, presumably by those burnt from such relationships.
Let’s clear things up for starters before I move on. A Thai bar girl and a regular Thai girl are poles apart and should not be to refereed to in the same way; however that is not to also say Thai bar girls cannot make good girlfriends or wives either.
Secondly there are cultural differences between Western and Thai that seems to infuriate many Westerners, such as dowry’s. If a man wants to get involved in relationship with a Thai girl then he should except the cultural differences. He should know what he is getting into before hand. To reject such tradition is narrow minded. If you don’t agree with a dowry then maybe a Thai relationship is not for you.
I have very good relationships with Thai people, both men and women, and find them very warm individuals. Of course, there are traits that can be annoying such as their laid back attitudes but in some ways I have made some learning’s to my approach for life from this. Case in point, I no longer get stressed when someone cuts me up in the car for starters, I mean, what’s the point?
In my years I have had relationships with Thai girls, along with British girls too for that matter, before finally finding my match who turned out to be Russian. For me it is the person, rather than the nationality. And to be honest, not to offend any of my female readers, but women world over can all be a right pain in the backside when it comes to relationships!
