Why do farang girls hate Thailand?
Have you ever seen an ex-pat with a farang girlfriend? Me neither.
Throughout Thailand, farang girls have been swapped for Thais in a
manner reminiscent of the 1950s science fiction classic Invasion of the
body snatchers - "its some kind of pod... aaagh!" Why does this happen?
Loads of farang girls enjoy holidaying in Thailand with their
boyfriends. Its the ones who come with their girlie mates who discover
that the fortnight is not as fun-filled as they had hoped. Just like the
rest of humanity, western girls relish the chance to meet new people and
get fucked rotten. Its the second part of the equation that Thailand
often fails to deliver for girls, anyway.
I visited the island of Koh Samed a few months ago and noticed a group
of pretty English girls who were out looking for a good time. In Ibiza,
these provocatively dressed minxes wouldve had to beat the fellas off
with a shitty stick. On Koh Samed, however, they partied alone. There
are no girlie bars on the island, so the western guys had all played it
safe and brought their Thai sweethearts along.
As the girls frustration mounted, one of them copped-off with a Thai
waiter. There was no age gap but the height gap was a bit noticeable.
She popped him into her pocket and took him back for a night of fun in
Next day, I was lucky enough to overhear part of the post-mortem.
Apparently he was quite sweet but had burst into tears when she asked
him to use a condom. His English was quite basic but he was able to
explain his family problems and financial difficulties.
The topic was dropped when her new boyfriend arrived with a couple of
his little mates. He was wearing her T-shirt. Food and drink was ordered
and the girls footed the bill. Everyone seemed to be enjoying
themselves, although the other girls werent giving out any fuck-me
vibes to his mates.
Their patience was rewarded when a couple of days later a group of good
looking English lads turned up unaccompanied. The two groups soon became
one. The new Thai boyfriend went into limpet-mode and showered his girl
with public displays of affection. Her discomfort was obvious. Even
after she dumped him, he hovered around like a bad fart.
The whole episode was priceless entertainment and it illustrates well
the sexual politics that make farang girls hate Thailand. It seems that
the dating strategies employed by some Thai men are not far removed from
those of their fun-loving sisters. The sickly confection of charm and
freeloading is served up with a large dollop of jealousy.
Men can never resist second helpings but why do women find this dish so
unpalatable? Its because they want their men to be strong, dependable,
generous, respectful, kind, high-status, intelligent, hard working,
sincere etc. The list just goes on and on. If you fall short of their
ideal, they wont hold back in telling you about it either in endless
Men value these things too, but they dont bang on about it so much. If
shes cute and funny, a man can generally forgive a girl her
shortcomings. The western girl in our story was turned-off by the
waiters whining. As men, we are used to sharing our lives with women
who whine and its just water off a ducks back. What we are not used
to, however, are women who restrict their whining merely to asking for
pocket money. Its a breath of fresh air.
When it comes to snaring a man, Thai girls leave their western sisters
at the starting gate. Its not just their cheeky charm and good looks.
The killer punch is how they make a man feel valued. To do this, they
give him their undivided attention and refrain from hurtful criticism.
In other words, they show him that they value him warts and all (even if
they dont). They may only be after his money but, if a guy is happy, he
probably doesnt care.
Western women just cant stomach the indignity of lowering themselves to
this level. Thats why in Bangkok they are generally seen out alone.
Their chances of finding a boyfriend are slim and of keeping one
slimmer. Some are reduced to paying Thai men for sex. It doesnt take
long for them to become bitter and unhappy. They could do with losing a
few pounds too.
There is, however, some hope for our sex-starved farang chicks with
attitude. A few thrifty guys have plugged into this niche market to save
themselves 1,000 baht a night. Reportedly, its like shooting blonde
pussy in a barrel. The wise swordsman will go back to her place, boot
the soft toys off the bed and quickly dump his load before getting back
to join the lads for last orders.
