    What type of guys you meet through TG's?

    I didn't know how to word that heading....

    What type of guys do you meet outside of Thailand that date or are a married to your TG's Thai friends?

    We had a dinner date at a TG's apartment, well her boyfriend's apartment, and he was fairly well off.
    And it got me thinking that I don't usually run into well off guys with TG's. More than not they are just middle class guys.

    Actually I think it threw Ao off a bit.........she is used to usually having the nicest apartment out of all TG's she knows and don't think she liked giving up that honor 555............this guy's place made mine look like a shack!

    But the guys I usually meet have ok jobs but their TG works also............kinda puts the notion that the girls are after money false

    It actually is because when you are married or with a TG you run into some characters............I guess not that different than when I was with other girls

    Honestly, I prefer going out with couples who met outside Thailand
    Most times if they met in Thailand..........most of the guys won't STFU about Thailand all night long

    Can TGs differentiate the wealth of guys they meet in Thailand? I guess until they actually move in with them... either in Thailand or back in the guy's home country... then they don't know the true worth of their catch?

    So can you generalise and say they aren't after money? I've yet to meet a TG who isn't after bettering her life.... I've met TGs here in the UK who are working here (legitimately) who want to stay single because they feel more in control of their money that way...

    I have a few friends married to TGs in Vancouver so I was always meeting Thai/Farang couples during summer bbqs and the like.... must be a wealthy group in Vancouver because all the guys I was hanging around with were pulling 6 figure salaries (as entrepreneurs). I think what happened was one guy got hooked up then spread the word about Thailand then everyone kind of just started hooking up and getting married to a Thai during group vacations so that after 10 yrs they built themselves their own little community.

    Even the Thai wife of one of my friends tried to hook me up with one of her girlfriends that was a lawyer back in Bangkok one time... but I politely passed as I didn't want to be the next guy to add to the community, 5555

    Vancouver might be an exception though in terms well off Thai/Farang couples as it's one of the more expensive cities in North America to live in. Now Thai/Farang couples living out in Port Coquitlam might be a different story, 5555
    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    It was like a different world.
    All smoking butts in the house......haven't seen that since the 70's 555

    We know one group of people that the guys are pretty well off
    But to be honest.......we don't care for the crowd because it always seems like the girls aren't being their true selfs. At least that is the opinion i get.

    Most guys have been pretty cool but i couldn't deal with the weirdos at the temple.
    Dudes would be in their yellow K!ng shirts......total Thaiphiles

    I don't have any friends in Canada who are married to Thai women. But I have many farang friends in Thailand who are married to Thai women, and a few who are married to farang women. I have several acquaintances in Thailand whose wives were former bar girls, and whom I once had a "relationship" with prior to them getting married. But, I've kept that part quiet.

    One very good friend of mine has the same routine as I do... 5 months in Thailand and 7 months in North America. I knew Mike's wife before Mike and I met because Nong was my "laundry lady". Michael has a business in the USA and he works 7 days a week and 10 hour days. But when he comes to Thailand he stays out of his wife's laundry business, other than doing electrical work where necessary. Mike and I are as different as chalk and cheese, but we get along very well together. We both like to walk and hike... and verbally solve all the world's problems.

    I am totally unimpressed by people who are too status conscious and who try to show off what a big home they have, what an expensive car they drive, or how much money they have. But, I do have some very wealthy friends. Status seems to be very important with Asian people, but it kind of turns me off. As I've said many times, the only thing important to me is how people treat others around them without asking for anything in return.

    I've had lots of Thai women try to hook me up with their girl friends, but I politely decline. I don't WANT a permanent relationship anymore. One, I'm too old, and two, I have a limited, fixed income. My commitments are already spread pretty thin in Thailand. I already help three separate families. The property I own in Canada is going to my two kids and three grandkids. No new "lady" is going to get her hands on it. When I die my pension ends, so that means if I were to get married again then the new wife would be back to where she was before we met. That would not be fair to her, so better not get involved in the first place.

    Most of the guys I meet who are married to TGs and live in the west are either members in here, AI or were on PI...and they seem to come from a wide variety of backgrounds and mostly do well enough to have a trip out here (Thailand) once or twice a year with their wives/TGFs and all seem to have jobs that pay reasonably well, own their own houses etc and live fairly middle class lives...I haven't met one I didn't like yet and none who I would say was overly Thai-centric...can't say that about some of the ones that live here though...some proper fruitcakes living here 555

    In almost all Thai-Farang relationships I know......the TG is definitely looking to better her life. But i guess what I was saying was unless the guy was seriously putting on an act of being rich......I think most know they are not marrying a rich guy. They are still better off and I think a lot don't understand how sort of average most of us guys are and what the costs are in the west. But I think most know they are not marrying into real wealth

    I've had many occasions where we've been out with another couple and the guy just won't stop talking about Thailand
    No matter how many times I will try and steer the conversation to other topics
    Obviously it is our common bond so we will talk about Thailand but some just can't talk abouy anything else.

    Any of the members from this forum that I've met have been damn good blokes and they come from all walks of life. But, that is different than the topic question... meeting men whose Thai wives you've known before. Hopefully, I'll meet Alan (lakeboy) some time in the near future, and MarcTwoSix and I have missed connecting a few times, but probably will meet in the future. We don't always see eye to eye on all topics but that is only normal. You have to have something in common other than just a Thai connection.

    Maybe that is just because they don't LISTEN enough and think that is all you are interested in. Once you get to know someone it is more likely you will talk about other topics. I know I was a bit like an evangelist after going to Thailand for the first few years. I didn't even know that world existed and it completely changed my life for the better. I haven't changed my mind on that, but I'm more likely to talk on other topics today depending on the company I keep.

    yeah,dudes that live here waiing all and sundry and have a few of the kings shirts in their wardrobes often raise an eyebrow at the least from many including thais.

    i had a TGF back home at one time. she'd broken up with her farang husband. she had a couple of grown up kids then that didn't suit me that well.

    Yes you are correct about misunderstandings.

    Before I met Au, I had brought three Thai ladies back to NZ for a holiday. Two bargirls, one not. They all thought that because I spent so much on my holiday that I must be rich. I mostly stay at 3 or 4 star hotels. Rarely 5 star as for me the cost / comfort comparison doesn't work although I did treat myself once and spent a week at the Shangri-La because I got a special deal through a travel Expo.

    I explained to them that I saved hard, sometimes lived very frugally to enjoy my time in Thailand and that although I earnt a very big income in Thai currency, the cost of living in NZ was very high. Also, life in NZ wasn't continous partying like the bar girls see and could actually be quite mundane.

    Some guys can be quite tedious in their narrow focus. I have met many though who are interesting. I think what allows people more able to discuss a broad range of topics are things like travel, being a business owner, having an open mind to things like different cultures, religions, food. The guys who are easier to talk with have a wider view of the world than just working to pay for their holiday. The ones that only talk about Thailand I think are a little insecure or maybe naive.

    I met a couple of blokes in Patpong one day. It was ridiculously early for Patpong, about 1:00pm. I had spent the night with a couple of girls I barfined and wanted to find Mikes Bar. Mike used to be in the RNZAF with a mate of mine who asked me to drop in and say 'gidday'. Of course he wasn't going to be around at that time of the day 555. Me and my two very attractive friends were walking up the Soi and there is a small open bar.. VL something. Three mature ladies, a couple of guys and a drop dead gorgeous lass who I thought was from Singapore. We rocked up, introduced ourselves, had a couple of drinks with a cheeky glance at each others escorts and played some pool.

    The guys were and owner and forman of an Aussie construction company building in Malaysia. Never any talk about anything remotely like money or status but more about travel, what's happening in the world with a little politics thrown in for good measure.

    actually that is not the question M26 posed...he asked

    What type of guys do you meet outside of Thailand that date or are a married to your TG's Thai friends?

    So are any of the stories you have related above about guys who have married your TG's friends???

    This stickling seems a bit rich coming from the biggest derailer of threads on this board..555

    (well along with DP...but DP actually does it knowingly 555)

    we are having a conversation here...won't go on too long if everyone sticks to the letter of the question rather than general topic that M26's OP posed

    You're right, bacwaan, from my limited experience I should not have commented at all. I don't have a wife of any nationality and I have NOT met any men outside Thailand who have Thai wives. I've only met the occasional Thai woman in Canada and only superficially in a restaurant. I've met far more Filipinas who seem to adapt well in North America. Maybe it's because they can all speak good English before coming here. In future I'll try to pay closer attention to the actual question. I can't guarantee that I'll ever stay on topic though. 5555
