    What's the most common farang's path to living in Thailand?

    Stage one:

    Package trip to Pattaya or Phuket

    Stage two:

    Falls in love with bargirl

    Stage three:

    Goes back home and cannot stop thinking about "paradise"

    Stage four:

    Returns to "paradise", can't find same bargirl so falls for another who promises to "love him long time"

    Stage five:

    Farang promises to "take care" of bargirls family and "change his life for her" and proceeds to get the entire "sick buffalo / granny in hospital / brother in motorsai crash / sister study" stories over several months as he works his bollox off whilst struggling to send her cash each month via Western Union / Moneygram

    Stage six:

    Farang looks at possibilities of staying long term in Thailand long term and then gets wind of TEFL training, possibly by being spammed by an email after he excessively read Stickman's website

    Stage seven:

    His bargirl "disappears" and her phone number is permanently off, and the reality that his "darling" is lying beneath another fat pot bellied red faced farang faking an orgasm dawns on him

    Stage eight:

    He arrives in Thailand regardless......and you can make the rest up yourselves.....can you please? For our amusement??

    What outrageous stories have you heard of?

    Personally Pat none of that except the occasional Western Union which I won't use again because they are a major rip off.

    Have you ever read "Dust" by Somerset Maughn ? That might be more relevent to some.

    From what I can see the majority are retired divorced and having a great time here. Good luck to them.

    A good post Pat.

    I know of a local man who jacked his life in back home. Came to live with his 20 years younger missus. Built a house got her pregnant. The family moved into "help". He started teaching. Gave her a monthly allowance which she gambles away and leaves the baby with her mum.

    He knows they have him over a barell and accepts it that if he wants to see his kid etc he has to pay a bit every month and live away from home.

    Stupid cint but that is the way things go.

    Another guy I know claimed that he didn;'t care if his missus fucked about etc. She was basically a whore anyway he just gave her money every month and she sat around doing fuck all.

    One day she got a job at a local supermarket. Started boning a young THai guy her age on the side then he found out kicked her out.

    He went on a bender for a month then decided to shack up with his ex-next door neighbour who was a dancer in a local club but now lived in BKK. he married her a few months later and now lives in her house with the rest of her dancing crew/band liek a student whilst holding down a realtivaly respectable jopb for a new high profile language school.
    He was a wanker to my missus so fuck im/

    Something like that!

    Yeah it was something like that. Except she was not a bargirl although admitted to having done it before. I live with the Missus in the US and we are trying to find a way to move back to Thailand. But not to her home we seem to spend large amounts of Baht there in fact more there than when we are in Bangkok. I'm telling you person cannot make up for the entire families poverty.

    I guess I'm the 'lucky' one, sent here by company.
    Was in Singapore and they started moving operations to Thailand.
    I stayed in Singapore as long as I could (10 years), refusing to come to Thailand (for traffic reasons at that time).
    Up to the time I had no choice.
    It's ok, I survived...

    A few days n BKK, pattaya, then isaan alone. think there were three different "professional acquaintences" Was here with a Chinese GF from the states. came back to buy Silk and teak.

    met a BKK lady in the textile and clothng business.
    stayed in contact. Learned how to get arund the city and country from her

    came back for more silk. spent a few days in Jomtien and Phuket with the textile lady.

    Came back for about six weeks tripped around the country hooked up wth the Textile lady (on her weekends) in Isaan, Chiang mai and then BKK.

    Came abck a few mnths later for a more sil and traveling around textile lady was there her company closed down she got a big termination package (1.5 mil or so).

    Invited her to the states, she already had her visa. She came, she stayed, we married under the rotunda at SF City Hall.

    At the Temple in berkeley all the fellas with their bar-girl/ rice-farmwer ladies were all over the wife (she was a Thai teacher )and I; asked how I acquired a "high class" Thai lady (fuckin idiots).

    We came back. The folks I met here, that the ex looked down her nose at, seemed to be the nicest and friendliest folks. Got tired of the selfish and arrogant ways of this Hi-So woman. Told her to "get out." Aiin;t looked back since. Sure was fine lookin though...

    I ain't pure and enjoy the company of 'bargirls" but am not a real avid buyer of "personal attentions." Think I spent a couple months hitting the bars pretty heavy after the ex was ousted. Got a sweet little woman that just don't enjoy bars but she does like margeritas

    I think this is the key to Pats question. Men get addicted to being given attention by "attractive" girls for the first time in their lives. Then everything else goes out the window, and all that matters is being in Thailand.

    Kinda fucked up like a junkie, but each to their own...

    Who said junkies are fucked up?
    Did you enjoy getting these chicks phone no. or not?
    Do you enjoy your kicks from trolling this forum, despite your repo/health points spiralling down into the abyss, or not?

    Came to Thailand for a little six week holiday. Went all over the country with some other chaps from the UK, but it was the energy of Bangkok that attracted me.

    Went home to the cold & grey and started my own business up which allowed me to holiday for three months every winter.

    I arrived back in Bangkok the following December and decided to stay for good. So I folded my UK business and stayed here.

    The only female involved in my decision to live in Thailand was a friend, not a sexual partner.

    I guess it's normal to go out begging every day just to stick a needle into your arm.

    That's as 'normal' as begging in the street to buy your next bottle of booze to guzzle in the cardboard box you live in.
