Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Great thread Degan. I have spent the last hour at work reading it. now time to go home! How are other 3rd world asian countries, such as Vietnam, Phillipines or Indonesia? Just curious if these are one in the same or not? I always assumed they all had similar cultures.

Vegan,
Your taxi story is very standard and im sure anyone who has been to a 3rd world country has a similar taxi story. Also your avatar is one of the best i have ever seen.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

I spent 6 months in Korea a few years ago, and found that they ranged from very friendly to completely obnoxious towards foreigners.

I'm curious what the Thai attitude is among parents when it comes to their daughters dating and possibly marrying a caucasian. Typically, Koreans very much frowned upon this.

Also, what are the chances of meeting a Thai woman 35+? Is divorce accepted within the culture? Are there single women in their 30's like in N.Amerca, or is it much rarer in Thailand?

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

divorce rate <1%.

unless you want someone 35+, you can easily get someone younger.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

poor families welcome a rich husband they can extort money out of.

rich familes, chances are they have been overseas, they may or may not be crazy about the idea.

also 50 year olds with 19 year old GF's is quite common. why on earth would you want a 35 yr old w/ kids? if you want to date an equal, you are barking up the wrong tree
Well, I'm not quite 50 yet, but you've got me thinking.

The stuff about Thai women being so nice isn't a big surprise. The Thai women at the Thai restaurants I've gone to regularly have been super super super nice.

if by locals you mean thai's...as i said before, you have to have some kind of an in, but yes, in general...they are very receptive of white people. they look up to you.
...

Deep down inside, I guess we all want to be white?

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

I do and have in costa rica (so cram it), but degen said he did not speak thai and has 16454 thai girlfriends, Im asking how he does it, are tall white guys like cat nip to these thai girls?
