    HI everyone

    Im new here and wanted to introduce myself. M6 name is Edward im 43 years old and im a truck driver back in UK. Im looking for some advice from people with more experience living in Thailand. I discover Thailand 1 year ago, and only now i got the chance to travel here to meet the woman i love after we chat online for almost 4months.As my job is truck driver, and Im not an expat or any other business man full of money, i want to ask if a midlle class person can afford a decent life here? Im not looking to buy or build a 6bedrooms 5 bathrooms house eith pool or other fancy things. I can live well in a 3bedroom 2 bathroom house. I dont drink alcohol or smoke so i can save on those things. I just want to move here as my girlfriend dont want to move to UK. And to be honest with the exception of a decent payment every week i dont like life in the UK too. So where i can ask more details ? What jobs you can have as a foreigner in Thailand ? If all your savings are only around 120.000 is enough to move here and start a new life? Can you buy or build a decent house around 30.000-45.000 in northeastern of Thailand ? Khon Kaen area. My girlfriend use to be a sergeant in thai royal army but she quit her job 2 years ago and now she works as a thai civil servant with an average salary of 15.000 baht. We want to start our family and have 1 or 2 babies. As in UK i can have a decent life with my monthly payment i dont know if here i will be able to offer to my family a secure life, nothing to fancy.

    He also writes English better than most Englishmen on here, so that's another clue.

    "I discover Thailand 1 year ago". I think most of us have a bit better grasp than that......

I didnt ask about advices for my love life, im mature enough to assume my mistakes if i will do any. So if you guys cant help just say you cant. Because so far 0 advice, but lots of mocking on me.

    Don't move, you will probably lose all you have and go home poor. That is my advice with what you have given me.

    Fair enough. But, in our defense, we do get a lot of trolls on here, and I have a Thai girl and want to move to Thailand is normal trolling bait.

    So, I will start. Work for foreigners is restricted. You can only hold certain jobs. You could not, for example be a lorry driver here.

    Its difficult to say what jobs you can do- but the government publishes lists of what you cannot do.

    You will have problems getting a visa if you are not married or have a job.

    120K pounds sterling is about 5 million baht. Not enough to settle her without work would be my opinion.

    i see that the self appointed forum police, those brain damaged idiots with nothing better to do with their sad lives than monitor every post and poster on this dying forum, have given our newcomer the usual warm welcome.

    if the newcomer really wants advice he would be far better off on a forum such as aseannow, but if he just wants to have some trolling fun with a welcoming committee comprised mostly of fat anti social alcoholics, ignored by their families and marooned in some isaan village surrounded by gormless and feckless natives then he has come to the right place.
