Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

I'll join others in thanking you for starting a fascinating discussion.

One thing you haven't discussed much...what is the scene like for older folks, those of us in the late 30s-early 50s? Is there much chance for us with the college kids? How about Thai women who are a bit older. Younger than 18 has zero appeal, in fact I think it's gross and terrible in a number of ways, but a college-oriented female is different (and to some degree, the older the better). And if the college scene is no good, what are the other options?

Is age an automatic turn-off for decent and attractive Thai women as described above?

Btw I've visited Thailand briefly and it is an impressively beautiful country in many ways. In fact I stayed at a country home for a few days made of pure teakwood (this house was on stilts)...it was a very relaxing and fascinating few days. I did pick up a few words and didn't really think the language all that challenging, so if I could give you something back for this great thread I'd strongly suggest you study the language more seriously...I'm sure you'd appreciate the benefits.

Although I admittedly get a bit creeped out when I see a 20 year old smokin' Thai girl with a Hawaiian shirt clad older man, I have to say that I definitely saw more than my fair share of 'older' couples on my last trip. It was really heartwarming, and I hope that most relationships stand the test of time. There is definitely a 'scene' for all age groups.

Degen, that chick's pretty hot, but I think facially I'd give her maybe a 7. What you you rate her on the Thai 1-10 scale? I should admit that I'm not really into Asian girls that much and think the Japanese are the hottest.

Your age shouldn't be a hindrance at all to finding someone you find attractive.

You have to realize that something like $300/month is a GOOD paying job over here. There are people that literally make 100 baht for working out in a rice field all day. These women are going to see u as being able to take them out of that life, provide a better life for your kids than what they have... All the while, getting a guy that probably has a bigger dong than some asian guy. In addition, they look forward to having little halfies with you as well.. We all know how hot half asian girls are, etc... Overall, its just such an attractive option for them to meet a farang for a lot of reasons.. BTW, it helps to have blue eyes.

One funny thing about Thai culture.. They are not afraid to tell you that you're fat... I was hanging out in my neighborhood, and I axed this chubby girl if she had a boy friend... Another girl interrupted and said "No, she's TOO FAT!!"

She was pretty for a Thai, but I would say about a 7.

Guys, you have to realize, that when you come over here, you're basically going to have the options of a pro athlete in the states.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Someone:
Where do you have to go to find good surf?
What's the easiest way to reserve somewhere to stay before you go? What's typical rent for a fairly nice 2bed 2bath apartment?
Where can I find info on the full moon party?
Thanks

Call them?

What's typical rent for a fairly nice 2bed 2bath apartment?

Depends on so many things. But Id say 25-35,000 baht ($650-850)

Where can I find info on the full moon party?

indian dudes actually get a lot of play over here. there are tons of indian owned businesses and thai women see indians as rich.
This guy I know from Pakistan said he didn't want to leave Thailand and he said many of his friends (also from Pakistan) haven't left for the last 5 years. Also, he wasn't rich by western standards (he finished school and worked there for a Thai company). Therefore, I can only infer brown guys do just fine.

Wow, talk about setting people up for a rude awakening.

Your comment applies to:

1. Good looking farang who are good at communicating with women. Basically, guys with tons of options in their home countries.

2. Guys who go to Soi Cowboy with 2,000 baht.

When I'm out it's very, very rare that I'm not the only farang with a Thai girl that isn't a bar girl/prostitute. And I'm sure it's rarer to see another farang/Thai couple where the farang isn't expected to pay for everything.

The notion that anyone can come here and have beautiful ass thrown at him like he's Dwayne Wade is preposterous.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Did anybody ever go to party at Mystic while they were still open? I always thought it was the nicest club in Bangkok.

Pom pud thai dee! Chok dee krab! krab kun krab pom
lol. you mean 'pud GENG' not 'pud dee'

Goto pantip and buy the 'rosetta stone thai level 1' software. You will pickup several hundred words very quickly. I love buying $300 software for $2

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Wow, I just spent some time getting caught up with this thread and I'm ready to move the minute school ends.

Is your office help a go-go dancer also or something? Secretary with benefits? I thought the video was hilarious when considering shes an employee.

I definitely want to see more videos, but can you also post some pictures of the insane apartment you guys get for 35k? Is that ~$1100 US? Also post some pictures of food. Seriously, once you get fast internet set up pleaaaase just give us a pictures barrage, living vicariously through stories only is tough.

This is true. They are very passive. You have to ask them to come back to your house and teach you to speak thai. Then you bang them.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

degen,

also, uston, its obvious that degen is exaggerating a little, but i do think guys from here will do much better in thailand like he says.

Absolutely agree. That's not even open for debate. I just think that being here for awhile and having experience with the way of life here is being vastly underrated in this thread.
