Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Anybody know of kasikorn branches in bkk that don't require you to take a thai with you to open an account? It's not a problem would just be easier if i could do it alone.

I think Fortune, Pantip Plazza, or MBK would actually be better for speakers or other electronics.

I bought some speakers that plug in to headphone slot that are decent from Carrefour, just go into any store and ask them to test them for you

from what I've noticed that unless you get lucky, dating a normal thai girl is really difficult unless you speak at least some thai.
Honestly man, before I came here to BKK, I looked through these threads for tips on how to pick up local Thai chicks, but I was very disappointed in the lack of info. But now that I'm here, I can tell you how easy it can be to meet real girls. I've met a LOT of girls here at night clubs and after-hours bars, compared to relatively few working girls. If you are outgoing and friendly, you will be fine. The girls are very approachable, especially if you share a smile first. Most of the girls I've met speak very little English, but it's really no problem to get around. You can talk about basic stuff like where you're from, what you like about Thailand... etc etc. It's too loud to really talk in a club anyways, so just impress the ladies with your farang dancing skills and you will have a good shot at leaving with them.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

So to sum it up, if you don't want to pay for play, you don't have to, but you have to be willing to go hunting a bit.

PS. We should have more discussion on meeting non-working Thai girls in this thread

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

from what i can gather there is a general consensus from guy that go to thailand that you can't get real girls in thailand but my guess is most those guys can't get real girls anywhere else either. that's why they are in thailand.

I do not go with thai girls since I am engaged. I do know tho, that most often there is no business deal going on before the girl follows the falang to the hotel. They know they will get the standard money the day after anyhow, un unwritten rule.

They are most often also looking for a long time relationship with a falang that can take care of them and many falangs would rather marry a girl that "never" has been a hooker.

I am sure many girls not want to say that they are hookers even if they are, and I think there is a possibility that some of the girls you have met is dissipointed if you have ****ed them and not given them money.

I am sure many thai girls fall in love with your looks and personality because you are so awsome.

Offcourse it has not ANYTHING to do with them wanting someone to support them. They just think you are so hot and they would rather be with a falang than a thai man since it makes there family so proud of them and because there is absolutely no culture difference. As matter of a fact they think falangs are coooool and not idiots with money as many believe.

Do you really believe that you would get those girls if they thought you were broke?

lol never said anything like that just pointing out that the average guy going after girls in thailand isn't a typical ladies man. you add playing poker and posting on 2p2 to the equation and my guess is that isn't helping a lot.

Compared to where I'm from (Canada), yeah, it's mad easy. But it's still impossible if you don't put in the effort, know what I mean?

True. I've met a lot of guys here who fit the poker nerd description, and even some of them are getting it for free.
