Thailand dating scams
Try arguing with a Thai that you are not prepared to pay a dowry or not willing to support distant lay about relatives. I don't think it's any coincidence that when she speaks very good English and thus the language of the relationship is English that the chances of long-term success are much higher.
Besides, and this really is as an aside, I think one of the best things you can do for her is to get her English up to speed. "But it's the Thai way" she claims and you foolishly try and rationalise that this is Thailand and you don't really understand everything that is going on around you and oh so begrudgingly give in.
RESEARCH YOUR SCAMMER, FIND OUT WHO IS BEHIND THE EMAIL I'm guessing these are some of the dumber ones.
The smarter ones don't seem to pull scams via the internet on ladies in the same country they are in. They nickeled and dimed these poor ladies, and probably took every baht of savings they had.
Failure to cough up can result in theatrics the sort you just don't want to experience.
Drama with an hysterical girl in your condo is no-one's idea of fun.
If you are genuinely contemplating marriage to your current darling then move her in. Later discovering that she was not quite as suitable as you first thought and finding yourself in a situation where you have to move her out can become a nightmare.
Too many guys agree to things with their Thai girlfriend that they really would not agree to in their homeland.
We might not quite be in vogue like we were several years ago, but the average Thai woman will still consider a foreign guy, even if she is not one of the so-called farang hungry women.
So with foreign guy / Thai girl relationships so common these days, why is it that we hear far more tales of woe than we do fairy tales?
It must be a mixture of still in denial and feelings of shame and not wanting to have to do anything with it any more.
I have understanding for this but it doesn´t make scamhunting any easier if too few come forward. A lot of the scams of middle-aged Chinese ladies go unreported, they're too ashamed to speak up.
