Thai dating experiences
I'm an American who has been living in Australia as a postgraduate student. One commentator now claims that there are five different categories and this might explain the conflict in dating reports from Western men who have had relationships with Thai women.In situations where relationships between Thai women and foreign men fail it is more likely that westerners simply made the mistake of choosing the wrong sort of woman, just as they may do in the seedier areas of Hamburg, Amsterdam and London.Again we must be careful about the typecasting of Thai women even bar girls.Recently a Thai internet blogger revealed five different types of Thai women, and we must note that the success or otherwise of marriage depends both on the type of woman and the type of the man - there are two people involved in a life or marriage partnership, and Thai women can also make a bad choice.A well know Thai commentator has defined five different groups of Thai women to help an educated middle class man find the ideal Thai wife or life partner.Such Thai women are limited in conversation and there will be a huge cultural gap between her and the average western man.
It is this attitude that many Thai women from this group may find particularly attractive and perhaps rightly so.The preconceptions that most westerners have of Thai women can make it difficult for these men to make the right decision when choosing a Thai wife, Thai girlfriend or life partner.Thai women have been classified into five distinct categories: The average Thai bargirl stands way down on the social ladder, and while she might look very beautiful, the average Thai man would never consider marriage to her.Westerners tend to generalize when discussing Thai women, and many have bad dating experiences with Thai women without understanding why.
On the other hand an overwhelming majority of the growing number of relationships between foreigners and Thai women are quietly successful.Reporting focuses on preconceptions and bad news because they are more readable.We have seen a pattern in every foreign country in particular the United Kingdom, Belgium and the Netherlands where successful relationships between Thai women and foreign men are more likely to be kept below the radar because the couples feel their relationships are better kept private.The five groups of Thai women are defined here in order to help explain the different sort of relationships that can develop, followed by a discussion of the Thai class system which few foreign men, who date Thai women, are aware of.
