Senior single dating adventures I've had in Thailand.
A better look at the lady in the header!
I know... I know... the reputation of Thai "ladies" is questionable. HOWEVER, that is really unfair, since the huge majority of Thai women are
That's my experience, you understand...
Tell me honestly... do I look super content in that picture?
A warning... be on the lookout for the girl of your nightmares, because it isn't hard to find them, either.
But you have to be in the wrong spot to find those...
Let me be clear about who I am.
I have found Thailand to be an amazing place to find sweet, caring, and passionate female companionship.
It’s also a place to find lots and lots of indiscriminate, mindless, and meaningless sex.
IN FACT, easy mindless sex is a major perception of Thailand by many foreigners who have never been here.
Mind you, it is also a major perception of many foreigners WHO HAVE BEEN HERE!
I've addressed a few aspects of the mindless sex experience in another section.
I find Thai ladies, generally, to be attractive.
I mentioned this fact to my younger son, who replied, "That's because they are easily available." He, too, has a slightly warped viewpoint regarding Thai ladies.
However, I am too smart (too old?) to avail myself of the company of bar girls, go-go girls, hookers and the ilk... I never have gone near any of those on my many trips here.
Anyway, I usually go to bed too early... the sleazy stuff doesn't start until 10 p.m.
IF you are a single male, and think that a Thai girlfriend/wife is a great idea, first you need to understand the world-view and mind-set of Thai females.
If you asked what their #1 requirement for a romantic partner is, they would reply "has a good heart", which means
In return, they will open their "good heart" to you, and treat you well, look after you, look after your family.
Now the quid pro quo for all this is: IF YOU GOT THE MONEY, HONEY, she’s got the time
Dote on me and my family and friends...
I guess at its most cynical, it is an economic union, wherein a farang has cash and gets a do everything partner.
I note, however, that it is virtually identical to the relationship my father and mother had... and they were married for over 70 years, with very few "bumps in the marital road"...
