Are Thai girls stupid?

I once sponsored a girl here in Chiang Mai actually she was from Chon Buri she had just finished high school tried her hand at a Go Go in Pattaya and decided she'd rather just be sponsored by a guy and for some reason picked me. Cute little thing and I'd say a regular Thai girl that simply didn't want to work very hard.

Anyway she comes up to Chiang Mai and I put her in an apartment for 2000 baht a month and gave her a choice, I'll give pay the rent and give you 6000 baht a month or I'll give you 400 baht a day. What do you think she chose? Yeah she chose the 6000 baht a month! In 3 seconds you can do the math and know that she'd get more if she chose to get paid monthly but I knew she'd pick the 6000 baht a month! Why? I still havn't exactly figured that out all I know is that I knew she'd pick the less money, is that stupid?

Thai girls

I used to run a shop here in Chiang Mai and I'd get these university girls coming to work. Most have never had a job before and if you ever hire a girl from a University remember she's not exactly doing it for the money. Most just get a job because they have nothing to do and they'd think it would be fun. In the west we'd get a job because we want the money here they do it for fun, as soon as they realize it's not fun they leave. Anyway so girl after girl would come in and it was their job to clean the windows. Well you'd think a girl going to university would know how to clean a window right? Hey maybe they don't but doesn't stop them trying, yet when I'd ask if they'd cleaned the windows they'd say yeah I clean the windows then i'd go over to inspect it and they weren't clean, so I'd ask them, are the windows clean? Their reply would always be no. Does that make those girls stupid?

I have a facebook profile which I post all these stories to. Most of you reading this blog a while would know that I've posted some pretty heavy shit that I've done to Thai girls and yet everyday I get new requests to be friends and even more requests to hook up? If this was a western country and I was talking about western girls like this think they'd hit me up to hook up? Does this make them stupid?

I live in Chiang Mai and most people from say Bangkok would look down at the education levels of the people in the North, it's not exactly their fault but there is some truth to it. No matter what is taught in school here it seems that common sense is not a subject. But does lack of common sense make Thai girls stupid?

Sure I spend a lot of time at the karaoke's and coyote clubs but I'm hardly talking about politics or hard subjects at those places, I go to have fun a good laugh. The kind of girls I'm talking about are not those that are working in the industry but regular Thai girls in fact I'm talking about most educated girls, girls who have finished University. Most girls I know that work in the bars have some good street smarts even if they are academically challenged they are probably more prepared for the world then most University degree holders. But does lack of street smarts make the majority of Thai girls stupid?

    It’s tricky because the girls washing your windows may just not care. There’s a difference between being incompetent and being stupid. We’re all incompetent at some things.

    In general, I think your examples simply highlight attitudes rather than intelligence. We grew up in an environment where logic rules. In Thailand, even at the university level, rote memorization is what gets you ahead.

    Many Thais are simply less proficient at applying logic because they’ve never been taught critical thinking skills.

    What is your ratio of free lays (aka 40 baht dinner) to P4P Chris ?
    As a guy under 35, no idea why you P4P,sponsoring or in any form more than street food….

    • Chris September 22, 2014 at 12:03 pm #

      Rarely do I take a girl for noodles and she doesn’t take my noodle! But P4P man it’s all about experiences and most of the noodle girls are inexperienced. When I want a girl to fuck my brains out I’ll go P4P or call a regular Gik.

    I don’t think “stupid” is the correct word to use. For me I just look at them as incapable of applying basic logic to… anything, and generally not very well educated. And that goes for bar girls, farmers, graduates and many of the hi-so people as well.

    Those who rise to the top end up running the country to some degree (or moving to another country). But as everyone can see, even they – those running the country – are not very bright or logical. Sure, some of them are brilliant and very wealthy, however, I’m speaking generally here and not about the exceptions.

    To be logical in Thailand means you must be illogical in order to make sense of the place. 9 out of 10 times they will ALWAYS make the wrong decision. You can place wagers on that. Your girls choosing 6000b over 12,000b is a great example of that. However, part of this also stems from their “today” attitude and the majority of them have zero care about tomorrow, let alone a long term future. One look at their infrastructure should tell you all you need to know about Thai planning.

    Having said all of that, I find a child like quality to their mindset that is often as entertaining and refreshing as it is appalling and frightening. They laugh often, know little, and don’t care either way.

    Though, what is frustrating is when they refuse to accept information or knowledge from a foreigner, simply because they are not Thai, even if the foreigner can teach them something. Most will refuse to listen and remain the simple minded, xenophobic, nincompoops that they are. This is most unfortunate, because if they were willing to learn from outside sources, they would usually be MUCH better off. It is no secret that the educational system in Farangland is much more advanced than here. If they could just accept that maybe they could actually learn something from a non-Thai, perhaps Thailand would progress positively instead of stalling or progressing in a negative manner. If nothing else, learn from our mistakes.

    “Thainess,” xenophobia, and “face” is hindering real growth and development (social and other) in Thailand more than any Thai could possibly understand. And that is unfortunate.

    I’ll wrap this up by saying what I tell every friend who comes here for the first time, and that is to leave your logic at the airport when you land. The locals won’t even know what to do with it so it will still be there waiting for you when you leave. 😉

    That just made me want to go back to Thailand. Miss those cute little dumb, happy things.

    I wish I had known Thai culture beforehand. The girlfriend of my wife’s sister stayed in our home for a month. I thought she was lez but looked cute. The sister is the masculine type of girl.

    Anyway, the girl seduced me and I was in shock. I thought, isn’t this girl gay? I know gay girls in the states but they wouldn’t try to seduce a dude.

    She had me by the balls because had I said no, she would have told the wife I attempted a move on her. I let it happen. Now I was stuck in her grasp and taking her around town. She knew she had me. She acted like a wife to me when no one was around.

    After she left, I fessed up to my wife. She said why did I not tell her? I said, who would believe me that your sister’s g/f seduced me. My wife called her in Bangkok and sure enough, she told my wife I got her drunk and raped her. I knew she would lie and turn the shit around. I saw the two faces on her and it frightened me.

    Now the wife wants a divorce and I’m so screwed. The girl is back in Bangkok probably laughing at the mess she left. I’m trying to make things right with my wife. I did not invite this girl into the home. They should have known she was a trouble maker. I feel like I got screwed from Bangkok and Florida.

    We have tons of money and commercial property and businesses. Not to mention homes and multiple cars. I feel like I want to sell it all and leave this headache this girl caused me.

    I read about Thai culture after she left to figure out why this happened to me. I came across this site to. Maybe leaving and moving to Chaing Mai isn’t so bad.

    I’m in the process of designing Apple Ipod games. Can I still develop overseas and not have it considered a Thai business? I have a VISA.

    Oh, btw, this girl wanted me to leave my wife and come back with her. She said I’m the hardest working guy she ever met. I do work 7/days a week. You have to when self employed. Is entrepreneurship dead in Thailand?

    I’m only 45 with no kids. I love my Thai-Americanized wife but she is so mad and I’m so confused now. Even the butch sister doesn’t believe me about the story. Even though I have romantic notes she left me. I have tons of evidence that she was nuts but no one still believes me. I did not rape any gay girl. I have a stock brokers license and wouldn’t put that in jeopardy.

    Are Bangkok girls home wreckers? I showed my wife a Ipone app she installed the day she left. It’s time stamped. I know no one in Bangkok so I never knew there was such an App. I showed my wife this but she is still skeptical. How do I get even with this girl? I”m so angry.

    She put me in a ‘damned if I do and damned if I don’t’ predicament.

    Chris, what are your thoughts?

    • Chris August 13, 2012 at 8:11 am #

      I hate toms! Hope you read that, i don’t trust them and despise them and you shouldn’t have let some Tom in your home, ever! Most lesbians in Thailand have swung both ways but they’ll screw a guy everytime. I’m really sorry to hear your situation.
      I know tonnes of people who work here online, from programmers, database guys, to affiliate marketers, you can still do it here but you’ll pay USA taxes as if you never left the states, in fact most people I know prefer not to tell people they live in Thailand.
      Forget about getting even it’s not even worth it.
      Most Thai girls I know don’t care if you are with someone or married they will still try to get with you, in fact heaps of girls I know leave shit at my place so that other girls will know they have been there, kinda like a dog pissing on a tree. They don’t care, wereas most american girls if they know you have a g/f they stay away.
      I wouldn’t have told the wife but I understand your guilt and you wanted to come clean, but subconciously perhaps you want it to end? I dunno, i’m only speculating.
      To be completely honest with you dude, your wife will never forget this, she will bring it up even in 20 years time and never let you forget about it. No matter how much counselling you might do with her she’s going to remind you and give you the shits about it forever, can you live with that? If you love her so much you will be with her.
      If you can’t live with that then you might want to concider leaving her, though i’m not going to say you should or shouldn’t really your choice dude, just know she ain’t ever going to let you forget about it.
      As for moving to Chiang Mai well I recommend that to anyone! I know a lot of netrepreneurs here mainly farang but a few Thai’s. You have my email now so keep me updated with what’s going on mate.

    Malbrath makes a good point about “living for today”, when comparing the 6K per month or 400 per day. Tomorrow is promised to no one. Although social security is almost 20 years away from me, I plan to start drawing it at the minimum age of 62, rather than waiting until 67 where it would give me as much as $500 more per month. Why? Because tomorrow is promised to no one, and why wait until 67, when I might die at 66 1/2? Now granted, I don’t go so far as wanting something to do, when I could get more if I wait a month, but the concept is still the same.

    When you say “sponsor a girl”, what exactly do you mean? I understand what you do for her monetarily, but it is implied that she provide for you anytime or what? is it just for “cleaning services?” Just trying to figure it all out?

    • Chris October 16, 2012 at 4:37 am #

      Depends upon what you agree too, If I sponser a girl I want to to clean my clothes as well as clean my member on demand.

    Wow – what a low class scumbag you are! This whole thread makes me want to gag.

    In reply to Dudley…
    Understand that Chris is writing publicly and cannot be explicit in his description.
    But as a commenter I am allowed to be as honest as I want.

    Sponsor a girl means: To pay for her life on a daily basis. Food, maintenance, health, maybe education, family support etc

    In return for this support, the girl will behave like a good wife. Cleaning the house, clothing, washing, preparing food. In the bedroom she will have sex and be obedient.

    It is not a prison however. If either person wants to leave. They can.
