    Question Thai men? Are the sterotypes true?

    Any experience with Thai men either with dating, friends, etc.?

    I often hear that Thai men are cheaters and will have many girlfriends on the side. I met a Thai man on my last trip to Phuket who I believe isn't married and we keep in touch on social media. I hear a lot about Thai women obviously being on a male dominated forum, but I wouldn't mind hearing your experience or what you know about Thai men in general.

    ^There are only three females on the forum, other than you, and two of them live in the Philippines. Doubt you'll get much feedback, unless DJPrat contributes.

    Okay, I understand, but maybe some of you have Thai friends.
    I have heard a lot of negative things about Thai men, but certainly you can't listen to what everyone says.
    I think tc, may be with a Thai man.

    ^^DJPrat’s a walking stereotype. The worst aspects of a Chav and a Thai man wrapped up in one self-loathing package of neuroses.

    Have yet to date any but 90% of my friends are Thai. Some fit the stereotype but most do not. Proportionately about the same as non Thais.

    In Singapore they have an expression: "Don't Thai to me" Does this answer the question?

    My ex-wife taught at ISB for four years. She had a few friends who established relationships with Thai men - none ended well. Not painting with a broad brush, just relating the few cases of which I am aware.

    I think it depends on the social circle and background. I have Thai friends, both male and female, and have only ever heard of one case of infidelity.
    No...strike that. There is a neighbour whose brother died from AIDS. Apparently he was a player. But I don't know that neighbour very well at all and it's a 2nd degree story anyway.
    There is certainly a lot of anecdotal evidence to say both men and women are loose.
    But as I say...social circles.

    Fits with my observation too.

    Interesting, thanks. I've heard a lot of negative things as well, but can't paint too broad a brush before exploring.

    Of course, all of the women involved were Americans, thus the Thai guys might well have been great guys and not at fault in the least.

    I suggest looking up the word 'stereotype' for both the spelling and the meaning.

    I only know what I have been told. I personally know of two women whose husbands are currently playing up. Quite a few females that I have dated over the years tell me that they have been cheated on by Thai men and that reason is often given for dating farang men, in my experience. I have been told Farang men are not butterflies like Thai men but they probably dont know many farang men. Some farang men I know in Thailand would root a dead rat, if you'll pardon the expression. In fairness to the men there does appear to be a lot of "available" women from what some of my Thai male friends have told me. TB if you prefer younger men and you have a taste for Thai go for it. Just dont take it too seriously.

    You're already dealing with a pubescent-stage arrested mentality, to begin with. Becoming "involved" with a Thai (of either gender), especially one who's 15-years younger than yourself (generational values gap) is akin to adding fuel to an already (temperamental) burning fire. It will not end, in a mature manner, particularly on his part. Guaranteed! Hopefully, for your sake, that Thai "guy" is not a professional colleague of your's.

    As I said, we are just friends right now, but I'm hoping to see him next time in Thailand.. could be a fun night, or maybe lead to something more. Time will tell I guess.

    In the meantime you can 'remind' the entire forum 'I Still Got It!!', right?

    Clearly the true purpose of the thread...
