So with foreign guy / Thai girl relationships so common these days, why is it that we hear far more tales of woe than we do fairy tales?Of course Western men and Thai women are very different, but what I see are the same mistakes being made over and over again."But I talked with her online for months and months", he says. And if it was while you were in Thailand on holiday, the proverbial two-week millionaire, she is going to have some lofty expectations… Communication is critical and if your Thai is better than her English then Thai becomes the language of the relationship.Speaking Thai is all very good and well but you will find that you tend to do things the Thai way.That means that the norms of Thai relationships will become the norms of your relationship.Try arguing with a Thai that you are not prepared to pay a dowry or not willing to support distant lay about relatives. I don't think it's any coincidence that when she speaks very good English and thus the language of the relationship is English that the chances of long-term success are much higher.If you're constantly told that you do not understand Thai culture or you do not understand Thai women then run, run as fast as you can and never ever look back. It's an old cliché but you really do marry the family when you marry a Thai woman.
When you face difficult times, be it external such as a job loss, or something within the relationship itself, it is much easier to work through things with someone who thinks beyond what their next meal will be.Too many guys agree to things with their Thai girlfriend that they really would not agree to in their homeland.Sometimes it can be packaged in such a way that failure to do so might result in a premature end to the relationship.If there was one theme that runs endlessly through this website – and has done since the site's inception – it is that marrying a prostitute is a recipe for disaster. The only reason to move a Thai lady in is if you really think you'll be putting a ring on her finger.If you are genuinely contemplating marriage to your current darling then move her in. Later discovering that she was not quite as suitable as you first thought and finding yourself in a situation where you have to move her out can become a nightmare.
