    The Thai loneliness

    So when I 1st moved to Vancouver I had this great Aussie girl that would take care of my dog when I went away for 15cad/day. She shared a house with 6 other people so she looked at being able to stay at my apartment alone as sort of payment, hence the cheap 15cad/day

    Well, we wanted to find the same deal with one of Ao's Thai friends but they "lonely".......they looked at having the apartment to themselves and leaving their apartments with 5 people sleeping there as a negative! 555

    Maybe it's the whole pee lawk thing. Too many ghosts in their head so feel safe in groups.

    Could she not bring all 5 of her friends to stay in your apartment with her?

    It gets a little crowded at times, but it is doable. Not sure if there is room for a dog as well, though. I had that at Angeles City in the Pilipinnes, but found it very tiring for some reason. It reminded me of that scene in the movie "Little Big Man" where Dustin Hoffman had to look after the 4 sisters in the Teepee.

    Sartre said hell is other people and I agree. I enjoy my privacy and it's the one thing I always make sure I keep. Plenty of social interaction with people and friends during the week and on weekends, but I like to be able to retreat to a nice, quiet sanctuary when I've had enough.

    But if I ended up living with 5 people for an extended period then I'd probably start heading the other way. It's just conditioning.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    I'm like you in that respect. I just wish Thailand wasn't so far away, and expensive to go back and forth. I'd rather just pop back and forth every few months rather than splitting the whole year up into two segments.

    ha
    i am boring as fcuk now Sydney 555

    maybe 5 years ago it wouldn't be

    the funny thing is she booked her trip without letting me know....she wanted to go home for Songkran and pays for it herself.......fair play
    then i told her i could come and she was very happy and when i fouind the flight but it left on 25th she was fine with that
    but i know once she is leaving Thailand and I am still there she will give me the ****s!

    actually, i last see her on 20th, she heading back to BKK and i am moving on solo

    ^^ Brings out the best in both of you in this unusual situation ( i say unusual as normally on a better timed/planned trip you would probably fly together)

    She obviously trusts you, and as we know many TG wouldn't, you obviously trust yourself because you are old and boring...555

    And it really shouldn't be a big deal 5 days apart in LOS, but some would try to make it that way

    [QUOTE=Sydney;142908And it really shouldn't be a big deal 5 days apart in LOS, but some would try to make it that way[/QUOTE]

    she simply won't do things i find fun
    i plan on giving her and her family all my attention the 1st 9 days i am with them, whatever they want to do i will do...totally willing visitor to the village
    but i want to hike in the national parks, get up early and get out and do things outdoors and none of that interests her
    i told her they should come to Khao Sok National Park with me and they can fly home from Surat Thani but even though it is one of the most beautiful places in her country.........she has no interest, so is fine to let me go on my own

    hmmmm sounds like fun, wish i was coming..55 bit like yourself, i am well overdue for a trip to LOS, more than 4 years for me, lucky my inlaws don't care about face, FIL has had a business most his working life so understands my situation.

    Not sure about you, but i like that degree of separation, as in her not wanting to do everything i like doing, that space can be a good thing, providing it doesn't grow into a gulf...555

    i met her when she was 21yrs old and she was immature
    she would give me **** for wanting to go on trips alone

    but now, she realizes i want to do things that she absolutely has no interest in

    as for face.....i think it is total crap BUT this trip is kind of me doing it out of duty(although looking forward to it)
    i didn't plan on going but i haven't see her mom and son in 3 years, there is a ceremony for her dad who passed in October..........so i felt i should go


    but i will have fun too!....

    I think i can feel your excitement slowly building now for this trip...5555, you sounded very nonchalant about it when you first mentioned it, but now that you are planning yourself some activities it all seems to be coming alive .....

    Try to get plenty of good pics ( i have to say there is quiet a high standard on this forum now ..55) ... be good to see Khao Sok and any others you manage to hike
