Belle* is 28 years old and has never been on a date in her life. Remember, you’re a beautiful, chatty, lovely person!
One recent afternoon, in a group chat between six Thai women who went to college together, Belle sent a candid photo of a decent-looking man she came across in her diplomatic career. ” one friend in the group suggested in the way that one offers advice to a friend that you know is destined for disappointment.
Even for those not indulging in retrograde Orientalist fantasies about submissive Asian housewives, it’s all too easy for them to not respect their Thai partner as a true equal. She said of Western men: “People from Western society tend to be more respectful towards one another than towards Asians.
Thai women don’t care about what society thinks of them — they just care about what the guy they like thinks of them.
I feel that men value the women they ask out more [than the women who ask them out].” Two days later, Belle updated the chat group that she had failed to talk to the guy in the candid photo and didn’t know if she’d ever see him again.
“Women want someone with a profile that they already know.
It’s more than just attraction,” said Ann, a 28-year-old in a relationship.
