What is great about them is the way that they treat you and make you feel. This absolutely cannot be beat.
When reading this and other quotes of its ilk, I find myself thinking:

"Thailand! Where a man's a man,
And the children dance to the pipes of Pan."

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Potentially silly question but how's the climate in Thailand?

Does everyone walk around half naked? Do you sweat like a pig and have to take showers a couple times a day? Do mosquitos and the like bother you?

How cold does it get during the winter? How hot during the summer.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

its hard to describe. you probably think from reading this that they are completely powerless. this is not true. my girl is very capable of manipulating and getting what she wants. hard to explain.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

nice, and I generally dont find asians attractive.

How hard is a 10 to come by for a typical average dude traveling over there?

as for hotness, thai women exude feminity. tehre is jsut something so intoxicating and sexy about them. maybe its because they are so conditioned to please their husband/bf. when i get free time, im going to write up an essay on difference between thai girl and western girl approach to relationship.
My god that sounds boring.

Edit: FWIW, I'm 31.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Can you talk more about the food? is it pretty similar to what you'd find at a Thai restaurant in the states? do you get a lot of food from street vendors? sitdown restaurants? or mostly just have your harem take turns feeding you when it's not their turn to fan you with large leaves?

Degen;
How did you learn Thai, or have you bothered?

I was just there this past summer and it is disgustingly hot at times. If you are someone who sweats easily, you will be soaked all day if you are outside.

The Thai people are very modest and will never wear shorts and often wear long-sleeved shirts as well. It is crazy to see them completely comfortable in the heat while you are sweating your ass off in your shorts and t-shirt and looking for somewhere to cool off.

Mosquitos are not a big problem in Thailand if you are in the city but can be a small nuisance in the islands and more rural areas.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

You know, I've always wanted to visit Thailand. Now I want to more than ever! Degan this thread is fantastic - thanks for it.

Question: How did you proceed in some of your typical pick up/hook up with the Thai girls? Can you give a mini trip report?

Edit: Not looking for lurid details - just things like where you met and how the conversation proceeded.

Awesome thread. I think Thailand just pulled slightly ahead of Costa Rica as the place I will definitely visit.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Are sports big over there? Would it be easy for a white guy to join a local soccer team?

Have you ever had to bribe the police or a government official?

What do you do for a living over there(sorry if I missed it)?

Yeah, how do you pick up all these thai chicks if you cant even talk to them in the bar, I'm assuming you're not so hot they instantly want to [censored] you.

If you want to communicate with people in a foreign country how about learning the language instead of bitching about how they don't speak english
