Should you give your Thai girlfriend Money? Seems to be a common discussion among expats in Thailand and the “how much you should give” seems to be the next obvious question. Honestly the first few years in Thailand I thought this was a daft notion. Why would you give any chick who’s not a whore money at all. In my western mind it made no sense at all. For years I’ve made my chicks work run errands do everything and anything to pay their own way even pushing them into prostitution because be damned if I’m gonna give them a cent. Recently that Idea has changed.
Thailand maybe advanced compared to other countries in this region but the average wage is still hovering just under $300 USD a month which makes even a guy on a modest pension seem affluent. The reason I point this out is because when a Thai girl says that she’s looking for a farang because she believes that western guys are warm and more caring and less likely to stray is total crap. Maybe for a girl who’s never been with a Farang before she may actually believe this but any girl who’s had a few Farang guys under her belt and still says this is just full of it!
If you’re new to Thailand you’re probably thinking like I did when I first got here and that my next statement is bullshit but you will eventually wake up to the reality. The majority of Thai girls are with you mostly for financial reasons. There are exceptions of course but the “Take Care” typically means “give me money”. And you know what, I’m 100% fine with that!
Maybe you have a Thai girl that makes her own money she works a full time job blah blah blah you may as well be dating a western chick. Pay for her to stay at home, why the hell not, if she’s making 10,000 baht a month why not just give her that so that she can be at home with you! I don’t agree with paying bar girls to stay with you permanently there more trouble than there worth but decent non-hooker girls are easy to find.
If I wanted a really ambitious girl that makes her own money I wouldn’t be with a Thai girl I’d be with a western chick who actually “gets it” whom I could have a real conversation with and all that crap. But for guys with Thai girls is that really why your with them? For conversation? Bullshit! Most guys I know are with a Thai chick because that’s what they are attracted to don’t lie to yourself you like the dainty little Asian bird and always younger..much younger and what’s wrong with that. Nothing!
If your 50 years old with a 20 y/o girlfriend embrace it, she’s with you for money and you’re with her for sex, there’s no other reason and is that wrong? Hell no! Are you a dirty old man for doing that? Fuck no! If you give your girl a monthly stipend so she doesn’t work and “takes care of you” while you “Take care of her?” what’s so wrong with that?
