Differences between Thai Guys and Farang

You know when you meet that Thai girl and you ask her why she's looking for a Farang boyfriend nearly most of the time she'll say that she tried Thai guys but it didn't work out so now she's going to try Farang. Honestly I don't like that answer at all because it makes Farang look second best. I don't want to be choice number 2 but with this limited number of Farang in Thailand and the endless number of Thai men it's just a reality.
Then the Thai girl rattles off all these reasons why she feels that Farang are better than Thai men. Most of those reasons I have to laugh at especially when I know a hell of a lot of Farang that live in Thailand. For example Thai girls like to say that Farang only love one person. Well most guys I know that is true but it doesn't stop them from fooling around with a whole bunch of other girls. And that one girl that he appears he does love he probably doesn't at all it's just for the time being.

Thai vs Farang

While there are some really good Farang out there who find a girl and only ever be with that woman I would and i'm sure you would agree that the majority of Farang in Thailand are those who believe being faithful means wearing a condom with all the other girls. I have to admit i'm one of those guys.

But if that's what the majority of Farang are like in Thailand then why don't I ever hear from Thai girls how decietful and playboy style Farangs are really like? Why don't you ever hear about the Farang that was sleeping around with a million other girls while he was with her? Why is it when you ask a Thai girl why she likes farang she doesn't reply with negative comments about farang and what those guys have done to her also, it always seems to be about how bad the Thai guy was.
I'm still not sure why which is why I'm opening this up for debate so if you have an answer please let me know in the comments what you think. All comments will be approved.

As for the differences between Thai guys and Farang here are some I've got already.

Thai guys won't pay child support
Farang don't want to pay but are forced to by the government

Thai guys drink all the time
Farang do too we just don’t get our girlfriends to pay for it

Thai guys have Mia Nois
Farang just have sex buddies last thing we want is another wife

Thai guys will leave their girlfriends for another girl
Farang will keep their girlfriend and still see the other

Thai guys go to Karaoke for White Chinese looking girls
Farang go to beer bars for Dark Isaan girls

Thai guys will beat their girls
Farang will mind fuck them

Thai guys will sleep around on their girlfriends
Farang don’t want a girlfriend so they can sleep around without any guilt

Thai guys will lie to the girls
Farang don’t have to lie, they are in limited numbers so the girls have little choice

Thai guys get the girls to pay
Farang pay for everything

      Thai guys are hung though… have you seen some of those lady boys?

  4. CoCo Channel July 24, 2012 at 3:10 pm #

    Thai girls probably tell the Thai guys that they do not like farang for basically the same reasons ,

    They are very good at saying what you want to hear , the smart ones know they are trying to make a “sale” and will say whatever it takes to close the deal.

    And I am a Handsome man with good heart, they told me so 🙂

    “Thai man no good, thai man butterfly” oh if I received a penny for every time..

    • Chris July 24, 2012 at 4:13 pm #

      Thai man no good, thai man butterfly
      Farang man good, love only one

      Sounds like a book they’ve read somewhere on how farang are or something ey.

      • Buttercup July 25, 2012 at 10:59 am #

        This book actually exists, it’s a “Learn English for Bar Girls” kind of book, I got to read some photocopied pages one of the first night I spent in Thailand.

        • CoCo Channel July 28, 2012 at 11:02 am #

          Where do I get a copy of it ?

          It would be great to know the questions so you could play it back on them 🙂

      I admit I am a butterfly. The tattoo on my chest (a butterfly) makes that obvious. Long live “Papillon.”

    I don’t think most Thai girls like farang more than Thai guys, except maybe those that work in the sex industry. It’s true that Thai girls are curious. Farang guys are to them what Thai girls are to farang : something new, exotic, different. I think that’s the main reason why “some” Thai girls prefer farang above Thai guys. Almost all Thai women I know have a Thai husband or boyfriend. I never heard them say farang guys are better. And most of the single Thai woman I know prefer dating Thai or Thai-Chinese guys. However, if you hang around in bars and tourist destinations you might meet another kind of people with a different opinion.

      If you ask a Thai girl “Do you prefer a Thai or a Falang boyfriend ?”, what can you expect knowing the Thai culture ? I bet the answer would be “Falang” if a Falang is asking the question, and would be “Thai” if a Thai is asking the question.

    for everyman that cheats there is also a women cheating, remember that thai lady before you shoot your mouth off.

    • charlieboz July 26, 2012 at 3:40 am #

      Had to laugh with this survey I saw the other day by Durex the condom makers.
      Thai men cheat the most out of all men around the world. But Thai women run a close second in being the most unfaithful women, with a big drop off to 3rd. But more thai woman cheat than thai men in the survey so I guess they are the true butterflies!

    I think some Thai women, and Asian women in general, prefer foreigners because they have become/are undesirable to decent men in their country. Let’s face it most foreign men looking for a real relationship won’t think twice about settling down with a woman over 30, who already has kids, is uneducated relative to him, from a poor family or does not have porcelain white skin, but many Asian men won’t.

    I met a white guy who lived in Chiang Mai for a few years and he was always telling me how his Thai buddies would laugh at foreigners walking with their Thai wives/girlfriends. When I asked why they were laughing he said that to them the women were essentially untouchables.

  9. Quick Question July 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm #

    I thought it was because they prefer the size of my manhood. Every girl has gave him a strange, but same nick name called “jeb”.

    As for child support – I don’t think in Thailand there’s a law saying you have to pay or do a DNA test. But… I’m no lawyer and neither is Mr. Jeb. However I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    It’s like Coco said, they say it because they know it’s what we want to hear. I don’t care if she’s talking about why she likes farangs or whether or not they have the new iPhone in stock, many Thai girls simply say what people want to hear from them.

    I read about a survey they did a few years back with school-age Thai girls and over 50% of them said they wanted a farang boyfriend or husband. These little girls probably haven’t even met a farang. All they know is that farangs have money and most Thai guys don’t.

    I was once touring Isaan with a girl and we were riding on a motorbike through a village and every time we passed a really nice home she would say, “Baan Farang” (Farang Home).

    That’s what they know about us.

    90% bar girls say the same thing, then you notice the Thai BF drops them off at the bar on his motorcycle and picks her up after her shift.

    A logical translation minus the Thai BS might be:

    i not like thai man because of these reasons: they never have money and spend all mine and stay at home drinking while i sell my body. But i love Thai men more than farang because i love my country/king/people and we speak the same language and my father was the same. Farangs are stupid and Thai men are not, Farangs dont make any sense to me, they are stupid but they have money, so we love them for that reason, because money makes everyone happy, my Thai BF too, and my poor family. I want a farang boyfriend because they are kind/jai dee ATM machines and believe everything i tell them. MyThai husband/Bf also wants me to get one so he can drink more and go to Karaoke clubs which he can do because im sleeping with you, except you are paying for him to do it because your dumb. But i love you honey dont leave me na!

      And that’s kind of it right there, especially the lower class girls that most falang have access to.

      It’s a great Disneyland of pussy, if you don’t really care that it’s all just a thin facade designed for amusement. If you prefer chicks with brains, you need game, a life, and out-compete dudes for the small pool of smart not-fat non-feminist chicks in the West. Not the case for most falang in Thailand, clearly … who even there pick the least desirable girls (like 30+ year old ex hookers with three kids).

    I have noticed that Thai girls like the word Butterfly but I heard it in relation to a Farang friend of mine. I think that money is a large part of the Thai girl interest in Farang men but there are from my experience a lot of stories of bad experience from Thai men. I believe that the sex trade was not as a result of the Americans in Thailand but part of the Thai male culture predating western influence.
    One of the problems I believe is the lack of work and the need for Thai men to leave their homes for long periods at a time to work abroad where they meet other women. When they leave their wives they take no responsibility for their children so the girls have little alternative but to go away from home to work. Some take up cleaning jobs in hotels which are so badly paid that they cannot afford to go back home to see their children or others join the sex trade where the money is so much better. Clearly the more educated women have a different story. I know they have their little books but I am inpressed at their English and the abillity to play pool. I always found partnering my Thai girlfriend against American or Arab opponants was highly successful.
    But I guess this is the musing of a more mature Farang who has developed a love for Thai people despite their foybles.

    • Buttercup August 3, 2012 at 8:27 am #

      I read somewhere that of the 300’000 people involved in the sex trade in Thailand (NGO numbers) only about 10% were catering to the tourists. The rest is kept busy with the Thais themselves.

      And we talk a lot about money here, but I would rather talk about trading the life in a rice paddy for a life with the stability and comfort one can witness everyday on TV.

      As someone put it, having only the choice between being an underpaid maid in an hotel or a sex worker is not really a choice.

    Thai girls are as intelligent as all women of the world. Half the sky belongs to them but not the power, nor the money. They depend on a man. Thai girls only prefer farangs because they have the money. They understand that women do not have to be slaves to them but farangs like all men of the world, like it, if they are. All around the world women cannot access the money like men can, by working or through education, because they are not sent to schools. You either work hard in a farm or in a factory 6 days a week, 11 hours a day, or you date a farang in the hope he looks after you, marries you, takes you away with him or stay in Thailand but look after your family too. Some do. In exchange, she intends to do everything for him : massages, cooking, cleaning, ironing, washing, sex and more sex at will. He does not have to apply himself. Just pay. Fair trade ?Just like American or European housewives. “Desperate housewives ?”
