Living in Pattaya is definitely an experience and what’s most startling is the amount of guys who fall in love with these Isaan bar girls and have delusions that these girls love them back. What possesses a man to come to Pattaya pays for a girl to sleep with him then thinks because he sends her a few hundred dollars a month that she’s only working in the bar or go go and not going with other customers?
As I’ve been doing the circuit around all the bars/clubs/go go bars in Pattaya a recurring theme has emerged. When I talk to these girls most say they have a Farang boyfriend that lives overseas and she is waiting for him to return. Next question is always how much is the bar fine and how much are you for the night, I’ve yet to hear a no “I’m waiting for my boyfriend!”.
Funnily enough most girls will not admit they have a Thai boyfriend, which I think is strange because hell why not, your telling me the rest of your life story why not tell me about the Thai boyfriend you have too? I’m pretty sure this is because they are ashamed to say that their boyfriend either encourages or tells them to work in the bars. Screwing over a Farang seems to be OK though.
I’m at the world wide a go go between sois 7 and 8 the other night (cheap 60 baht beer) when I call over this girl and ask for prices for 3 days for a vacation me and my girlfriend are going on to Hua Hin, she tells me she can’t go because she has to get a Visa to Norway in Bangkok on the 23rd but otherwise she would love to come. What’s the Visa for I ask why you going there for? Oh I’ve been before my boyfriend lives there. OK so your boyfriend lives in Norway sends you money and he is OK with you going with customers? Oh no she says he thinks I don’t go with customers but I do! She says with a grin.
Is this guy totally naive or what, girls don’t work in Go Go bars in Pattaya for tips and the monthly wage. The real money is made when they go with customers and if she wanted a monthly wage she could easily go get a job or ask the dude so she can go study so she can get a good job. I just don’t understand these guys and yet another reason why I really don’t like working girls.
So I spent the night last night with a go go girl fresh of the farm who has taken a liking to me and we hang out after she finishes work. She gets me to translate and send messages to some douche back in England who keeps sending her money after the 3 days they spent together. So far she’s got a laptop a Blackberry phone and about 40 thousand baht (she’s been in Pattaya for about 16 days. After those 3 days he’s professed his love for her and can’t wait for the day that he returns back here. I reassure him via email that she isn’t going with customers which I suppose is true since I’m not really a customer.
If you’re going to go with a bar girl or go go girl just have fun, don’t fall in love with these girls, this is just work to them and even though they say they want to find love and will give up the life for you don’t be a fool. Even if you were to get them out of the bar and be with you as soon as the money runs out so will they. Have some fun and leave it at that if you want to find a good girl try one of the Thai dating sites.
