It is a question that we hear a lot in our office and many bars around Pattaya. It almost inevitable that if you live in another country and your Thai girlfriend is working in Pattaya that you will have some doubts. A lot will depend on her job, and this influences that she is exposed to daily that will affect how you feel.
The culture in Thailand is very different to what we may be used to in the west. For instance, in the UK, it would be frowned upon for a 60-year-old man to be with a 25-year-old woman, but in Thailand, that is the norm. However, is this girl with the man for his money or because she genuinely loves him? That will probably depend on their relationship, but if he has doubts, they are perhaps for a reason.
Thai girls will almost always put their Thai family, usually her mother and children first. It doesn’t necessarily mean that she doesn’t love you just that they are more important and unfortunately, this is something that you will have to learn to accept.
Lack of Trust
It is common for there to be a lack of trust from both sides. Foreigners tend to hear stories about Thai girls leading to a lack of trust and many Thai ladies think that men are only after one thing. It can cause quite a lot of unease for all concerned.
Would it be Different if She Saw the UK?
You have seen how she conducts your life, but she will have some preconceived ideas about the UK. Perhaps if she visited the UK on a UK Tourist Visa, she might feel more comfortable, and it may strengthen your relationship.
