Or on Thai dating sites offering their virginity to sex tourists. You won't find Thai uni girls selling themselves on the street corners of Sukhumvit. How much is a Thai woman worth, now we got all these threads on sinsot and how much they demand Join Date: Jun Sinsot is the money you pay to marry your virgin Thai bride or the money you pay for taking her.
All her friends work from 9am to 5pm. All are dressed modestly. Girl B has friends that dress like skanks. They act and work like semi-pros gold digging for rich foreigners on Facebook. They will ask if you know any rich foreign men you can introduce to them. If you can take a good look at her friends. Ask them what they do for a living. Where they went to school and so on. He used my Dumb Tourist technique and eventually scored a first date with a Thai girl working out of an Asiabooks branch in Bangkok.
I went along with him as his wingman. As if that helps any better. His date says she just left her apartment, apologized and told her she should be there in another 30 minutes. I already warned Harry this would happen. After all, she said she lived near Don Mueang Airport.
He wanted to call. I had nothing else to do. And besides I was interested in the pending drama. It could all either go good or it could go bad Then the clock hit 8: I could see him redial his date.
I quickly asked Harry maybe I could speak to her in Thai.
This way, he can avoid choking on his own foot. He reluctantly handed me the phone and I asked her where she is. She said she is waiting for some friends at a hair salon over in Ari neighborhood, a final stop before coming to Emquartier.
Should be another 30 minute because they can hop on the Sky Train. As much as I would love to see Harry pop a vein in his forehead, I just told him she was with her friends heading to the Ari BTS station.
I said it would take another hour. For the entire time, Harry the Hungarian was bitching in his native tongue. There were 3 ladies and 2 gay friends in tow. One of the gay friends remarked Harry has a big dick.
Dating And Traditional Thai Culture
Harry was still annoyed throughout the first half of the night. Pick a Thai restaurant for group dining and you can save money Harry the Hungarian is wealthy and he payed for all meals and drinks at one of the super pretentious restaurants behind Emquartier. He spent about 10,THB for food and wine.
Pick a Thai restaurant and everyone else will be just as happy. As of writing Harry the Hungarian is still dating his first Thai girlfriend. Pick a meeting place closer to where she lives to save yourself some headache I did tell Harry it was better to pick a place to meet near where she lived.
However, he thought his area was better because he knows the location and where the best places are to eat. In Bangkok, traffic is a nightmare.
You can be stuck for hours if you come out during rush hour and when it rains. Thai girls take what may seem like forever to look beautiful. They go through the whole ritual. Makeup, hair salons, nail salons and beauty clinics. All of that takes a lot of time. And as I mentioned on 4 some of her friends will be tagging along. At least for the first few rounds of couple of dates.
And all of her friends will have to go through the whole beautification ritual. It usually gets better when both get to know each other better. I was hoping I could just continue on dating without the distraction of marriage to get in the way.
Who am I to beat Thai tradition anyways? All of them wanted to get married. I believe that many foreigners after finding a good Thai girl never planned on getting married too. And they just fell into it and not prepared for comes next.
Thai girls with good families expect a big wedding celebration. Try this one and her family will disown her. In Thai culture, marriage is a celebratory festivity. There will be lots of monks and lots of family. But as a foreigner you can expect to pay at least ,THB. Either in cash or a mix of cash and material goods.
Past the half year mark her parents pressured her to talk about us getting married. Obviously, that never worked out and I called it quits. The mother in law used to say that this was a modern woman thing and she was not impressed by it — and neither are many older Thais. But when it comes to the younger generation, the simple fact of the matter is that if each earns a modest amount, there will be a need to pool their financial resources simply to make ends meet.
For Westerners earning a modest amount and dating a woman with a decent job, don't be shy to let her know that she may need to contribute. I don't want to pick on teachers here, but if you are earning 30, baht a month teaching and your girlfriend earns much the same, it would be nice if she chipped in from time to time. Of course this is a tough one, for part of being the man in a relationship is the ability to look after your woman, no matter what, and that includes finances.
I know of one couple where each partner earns a little under 40, baht a month. He pays for everything, leaving him bahtless come the end of the month. She has built up a nice little nest egg and refuses to contribute. I don't give the relationship much longer. Of course if he is earning many times what she does, it would be highly questionable to ask her to contribute. While some Westerners speak of being unable to live on less thanbaht a month in Thailand, such avariciousness needs to be balanced out by the fact that the vast majority of Thais consider a joint income ofbaht a month an awful lot of money!
I know of a good number of Thai women aged 30 — 35 who earn comfortably more than 60, Thai baht a month. Admittedly none of them date teachers but if they did, they would in all likelihood be earning more than him! All of these women contribute in their relationships. I guess the bottom line is that if she has a very good salary, she will make some sort of contributions financially.
Bringing A Friend For a man dating a Thai woman in the past, he would have not just his date to entertain, but a friend she brought along.
It would usually be a female friend but on occasion it may have been a male. The friend was like a chaperone, there to keep an eye on the couple, to make sure that they behaved appropriately and to make sure she was not taken advantage of.
A man and woman walking together in public was considered to be a couple, and if they were not married, well, that was downright wrong in the eyes of many! A third party makes a date awkward. It's hard to enjoy those private moments with a third party present. When inviting a Thai lady out you my find that she wishes to bring a friend. If she has little dating experience, or is perhaps saving herself for Mr. Right, one can understand it.
If she is a virtuous girl, I believe you have to defer to Thai culture and respect her wishes to have a friend tag along. If however the lady you are dating is something of a walking mattress, it may be that she has brought her friends along simply to party on your tab. In such a situation, if you are not entirely thrilled at the prospect of distractions from the group and a sizeable bill at the end of the night then don't be shy to quietly mention to her that a group date was not what you had planned.
I wonder if the reasons for a chaperone still exist today.
Unless the couple is dating in a smaller, conservative town, I believe there is no real need, although some Thai women would like the idea of a friend tagging along, especially if the date is in the evening. Thai women just do not like being out at night alone or with someone they're not that familiar with. If it is any consolation I can say that I have dated Thai women from all walks of life and not once has a lady insisted on bringing a chaperone along. Ah, I guess they must have considered me a gentleman!
This does seem to be less and less common these days, especially amongst those Thai women we could call "farang hungry". No Sex Before Marriage The notion of the virtuous Thai woman retaining her virginity before marriage still exists in some circles. In times gone by, a woman who had experienced the pleasures of the bedroom with another gentleman was considered sullied, and most Thai men would not consider such a woman as suitable marriage material.
This meant that a woman would not have sex before marriage. If she did, she would be doing so because she truly believed that this was the man she was going to marry. Times have changed, somewhat. Those Thai women that the average Westerner tends to date bargirls, online girls, tourism industry girls airport, hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions and touristy areas most likely have had a Thai boyfriend in the past and they have crossed over to Westerners because she was fed up with Thai guys, or perhaps simply prefers Westerners.
The odds are that she is sexually experienced. But this needs to be contrasted with the fact that many Thai women are still brought up the traditional way and it is drummed into them that they should not have sex before marriage.

I could not talk percentages here, but I would suggest that there is a number of Thai women who still wish to preserve their virginity for their wedding night, or at the very least, for the man they are going to marry. And this is where things can get confusing. Some guys — and I am talking Western guys here — think it is great to break in a virgin. Thai women are just like women from all over the world. They want love, and they may be prepared to give sex to get love in return.
My advice here is clear. Yes, the Thai women Western men tend to get involved with may be similarly promiscuous to Western women, perhaps even more so. But there is a subset of Thai women who are virtuous and wish to stay that way until the meet their Mr.
If she is waiting for Mr. Right, please don't lead her on simply to get her knickers down. You won't just break her heart, you could damage her psychologically and she may never get married because of it. Of course, if you take a Thai woman's virginity her family may expect you to marry her — and failure to do so may result in nasty consequences!
Where was this picture taken? Last week's picture was of the Rama 8 Bridge. It was taken from the park with the fort on Pra-Artit Road. The first person to email me with the correct location of the picture wins a baht credit at Oh My Codthe British Fish And Chips restaurant and the second wins a free jug of margarita, valued at baht from Charley Brown's, a well-established, popular restaurant, offering authentic Tex-Mex Cuisine and delicious margaritas.
Charley Brown's is located in the small sub-soi off Sukhumvit Soi Preference may be given to emails which refer to the previous week's column. Regarding the closing of the Big Mango bar, I guess it is a loss because diversity is usually good but when I go to the Nana Plaza the last thing on my mind is buying a hamburger.
I want to see naked women. I could never puzzle out how they could possibly make a living. For similar reasons, in my opinion, the Cathouse has never over the years taken off. I don't know how they pay their bills. When I am in Nana I want to see naked women which I almost never see anymore and happy smiles which I almost never see anymore. The death of Nana. After holidaying in Thailand for the past 4 years, I finally made the move to Bangkok, on a longer term basis, last June.
Last week my wife went up to Khon Kaen for the week, to see her mother. That gave me an opportunity to freely visit some places I am not normally to be found.
I spent two evenings exploring Nana and Soi Cowboy. The contrasts I found were startling. Most of the bars at Nana seemed in a terrible state of repair and the general environment is dark and dirty.

Cowboy seemed reasonably well looked after and the street was bright. The touts at Nana were unfriendly and aggressive, whilst those at Cowboy were friendly, some even made a handy check that I was paying attention to the dancers' performances and wasn't holding a 10 gallon hat. By comparison, the dancers at Nana were far too overdressed.
Whilst nudity in Cowboy wasn't exactly everywhere, most dancers were tastefully showing off their essentials. In general, girls at Cowboy seemed a lot easier on the eye. I agree with what you wrote yesterday.
Nana has become a rundown dump. For a variety of reasons, Nana's days seem to be numbered. Closure of the Mango is another nail in the coffin of another part of Bangkok life. I find that very sad. Anyone know about the legality, or otherwise, of pepper spray? I noticed you talking about stun guns. I have a friend who had a very bad experience in Chiang Mai with a tuktuk driver coming after him with a machete.
I have had experience with stun guns and think they are for the most part worthless; think strong electric cow fence, it hurts but won't stop a person for very long. My question is whether pepper spray is legal in Thailand? Pepper spray will incapacitate an attacker for quite some time without injuring them. I have been to LOS many times and have never even seen a problem but it might happen eventually. Welcome to Thailand, eventually! Arrived back again at Bangkok's wonderful new airport and ran into the hardest part of my journey, as usual.
The lines for Immigration were so long that they stretched right out of the arrival hall. Except at the five desks for Thai passports, which were empty most of the time. We had to queue for a good 30 minutes. One guy behind me went and spoke to an Immigration woman who was standing around doing nothing and asked why we had to wait so long when the Thai desks were empty.
Apparently she told him, "This in Thailand, and Thais do not have to wait. I asked him if it was his first time in the Land of Scowls, fully knowing the answer. Welcome to Thailand, folks. The ultimate Thai dating site with ladies from all over Thailand! Leave the bookings to the professionals. I tried to book a hotel room in Pattaya for two weeks during the Christmas and New Years holiday. I contacted a hotel I usually stay at and their website now has an "instant confirmation" instead of the old email and fax method.
The first "instant" response took 2 days. I emailed back with the requested credit card info and the second "instant" response took 2 more days. Then a few days later they asked for the credit card info once again.
Over a period of 3 weeks and 8 emails on my part, the room reservation was still not secured. I contacted a popular internet room booking site and booked a room at the same hotel in less than 15 minutes.
Marrying Thai because they're intelligent and to produce darker offspring. I think there are a myriad of reasons why people from both races are attracted to each other. We could generalize and say that the rich farang man wants a younger, slimmer woman. We could also argue that the farang desires the perception of control that he gets with an Oriental woman.
My belief is that the origins of this latter "myth" are based on the Asian concept of not wanting to lose face in public. We can also generalise that the Thai woman wants money and therefore security. All these things are sometimes true. However, I believe at some level instinctually, we look at a potential mate as a father or mother of children.
I married a Thai I met in America when I was young and I married her because I loved her, but I also was looking for someone to have children with. I am a person that is exceptionally white. This was never considered attractive when I was young.
I married a woman who is dark. I was attracted to the Asian race because I believe they are an intelligent race. This is controversial but it has been proven that some races do better in IQ tests than others. Everything has worked out just as I wanted. Our children are better looking than either of us and so far are excelling at school. As far as my wife is concerned, there is no better way to lighten up her family's skin, and therefore brighten their future, than by marrying the whitest guy she could find.
The last chance saloon. Of course at this time of the night regardless of where you are you are usually scraping the bottom of the barrel, but here he described it more like scraping the bottom of the outside of the barrel.
A new lady entered the bar and requested to go with him, to which he replied yes. Then in that immediate aggressive manner that we have grown so accustomed to, she demanded short time or long time.
Without a moment's hesitation my friend goes to the hong nam. On re-appearing, in his hands he is carrying a large wall mirror. He goes up to the said lady in question, and sticks the mirror directly in her face in front of all of her colleagues and asks, "What do you see? The rumour mill has it that Sukhumvit Soi 1 Plaza is on its last legs and come a month from now will be closed.
This bar area really never took off and proved the rule that pretty much every bar west of the Nana intersection on Sukhumvit doesn't succeed, although Bully's is clearly an exception. Clearly the Russians don't read this column because if they did, they would know that they had already discovered the best bar area in Thailand — Pattaya.
Very much away from their usual stomping grounds, significant numbers of Russians were spotted in and around Cowboy this past Friday night, both male and female. There has been another of the clean ups on the Beach Road in Pattaya and there is less riff raff there than you would expect at this time of year, with the high season, supposedly, just around the corner. Speaking of the high season, a few readers have emailed me talking of problems getting a room in their favourite hotel and others, mostly Americans it seems, have talked of the airfares being significantly higher than they have ever been before.
The buffet at Molly Malone's is no longer and has been replaced by a roast set at a very reasonable baht. It is with sadness that I report the passing of the 38 kg former Soi Cowboy dancer, mentioned in this column a couple of weeks ago.
