Rant!

Recently, there seems to have been an exponential growth of farangs with Thai wifes and boys. Seriously, can just please one farang come to Thailand without hugging, touching, holding and smiling at his significantly younger Thai counterpart? And why, just why does your wife or boy always have to look cheap cheap cheap, like e.g. from Nana or Silom?



A girlfriend from Nana?


I see these gay versions a few times a day. They always walk next to each other or sit opposite each other - silently. Not a bloody word. Then I walk past, and the Thai will look at me. What does he think? “Oh, a young farang, I’d rather f*ck him.” Or: “Oh, I wonder how much he would pay?” Seriously, if my boyfriend would look at every young farang who walks past, I'd slap him...

I mean I dont actually mind THAT much but it's just so strange. Like living in a parallel universe. You see many many people chatting with each other, friends, collegues and then suddenly, a white man and a Thai man, SILENTLY walking oddly next to each other.

Or a boyfriend from Silom?

I am just wondering, arent you bored with each other? I mean, the Thai will earn his money like that and we are all bored at work sometimes but for the farang: It's his dream to be with a Thai boy and then you hardly talk a word.

It reminds me of the scene I saw sometime ago. Two farang-Thai couples. The elderly farang discussed a newspaper article about the economy and the Thai boys looked bored next to them...

orientalism lives on...

Hm... maybe judging the "quality" of a relationship from seeing them together for some seconds is a bit... too hurry ahead.
I mean do you talk to your bf 24h a day?? :-)

mister aurix. i know what orientalism is but please enlighten me on the connection to my observations...

nepax. probably...I do judge a bit quickly. they may just have an argument and that's why they are quiet. I do not want to talk 24h to my boyfriend, we would stab each other to death by day 2:) I actually rather mean their AWKWARDNESS, not the quietness.

E.g. if the Thai "boyfriend" constantly walks 3 metres behind his farang bf, why bother being in a relationship if both can apparently not stand up for what you are doing?

that's just an example - I see it quite frequently though...

yesterday some drunk Euro teenie boys made fun of me and the boyfriend at Suan Lum Night Bazaar. I gave them the finger.

hey, sorry if that came off the wrong way. i was referring to the power dynamic in these relationships.
