We recently asked our members, what are their impressions of Thai women, having been in a relationship with one for a long time. Here are some of those responses that give a collective sense from the large number of responses we got. A majority of those who responded have been in relationship with Thai women for 1 year or more.
I’m sure that you’ve heard the horror stories about women who treat their boyfriends very shabbily. I’m sure you have heard about how some women ask for money, gifts, and everything under the sun and their boyfriends have no choice but to comply.
No one wants to have an overbearing girlfriend like this. Everyone would want to be in a happy and well-adjusted relationship. Who would want to have a girlfriend or wife that demands so much yet gives so little in return? Not all women are this way, but there are women like this. The sad stories of breakups and nasty divorces confirm this. It’s not all rosy in a relationship and there are chances of failure. They are there, and it is best to avoid them.
For the best chances at having a great relationship, why not try having a relationship with a Thai women? Thai women are one of the most compassionate and understanding women on the planet! They have a very peaceful culture that promotes understanding and caring, that makes them a better choice over most women out there. Their Buddhist teachings guarantee that you’ll be getting a better partner than you would expect. Thai women come from one of the most patient and self-sacrificing cultures in all of Asia, the Thai culture.
In this culture being submissive, understanding, and patient are treated a lot more seriously and regarded with respect. In many countries, women who show such values will be seen as weak and inferior, and will immediately be advised to toughen up. Not in Thailand where such values and other similar ones are praised and encouraged in their women. Because of this Thai girls are the better alternative to having any relationship with, whether it’s casual or serious. They’re great to have a relationship with if you value harmony and serenity in your life and relationship and honestly, who doesn’t?
Thai Girls Don’t Complain as much as other women do
I think it’s safe to say that no one wants to be with a whiner or someone who complains a lot. Someone who does nothing but complains a lot can quickly turn the mood and atmosphere of a party into a funeral wake. Complaining brings everyone down, while not even addressing the problem in a constructive way. Unfortunately, there are women out there who seem to be hard-wired for this destructive trait.
A lot of women are taught to be independent and to grab their goals. However, the same women are also taught that the man must provide for the bulk of the income, ideas, and hard work in the relationship. They are taught this destructive paradox early in their life, and it is their relationships that suffer for it.
On the other hand, Thai women come from a culture where sacrifice is not just valued and encouraged, but also the norm. Thais in general, are taught that life is all about suffering, and any happiness is a bonus and fleeting just like the suffering. While this may seem initially like a very negative and bleak way to view life, it is actually quite uplifting.
This kind of thinking teaches someone to value the good times when they’re there while being calm and patient even when disaster strikes. Thai women are taught this at an early age, so they hardly complain even in a very difficult relationship. This makes it easier for you to smooth out any conflicts and achieve your goals together.
Thai Women are a lot more positive and optimistic
Is it any wonder that Thai women would be a lot more optimistic than most women? They seem to exude a positive energy that is almost heaven-sent! Their Buddhist teachings of kindness, calm and patience gives them the grace to take any problem in stride, even the more difficult ones. Having elephants around as sacred animals also helps, as the elephant is one of the calmest and most serene animals on the planet.
Compare this with other women who are taught to grab the proverbial brass ring in everything. They are taught to be ruthless and ambitious and to achieve their goals no matter what. They are raised in a very fast-paced society where there is little time to just sit back and relax. Just living in the city is a constant source of stress and worry. Other women will naturally transfer this kind of hectic lifestyle to their relationships, and they and their partners suffer as a result.
Thai women are natural housewives
Thai women have the natural advantage of being raised by their mothers. Having mothers who actually have an active role in raising their kids gives the Thai women a natural advantage at being better housewives. To Thai women, it is not offensive, or inferior to be a housewife. It is merely a natural progression of roles and activities in life. It is even very praiseworthy, and noble to be a mother and a housewife to her husband and children.
Again, compare this to say, a corporate woman who is usually too busy at work to take on the responsibilities of a housewife. The woman in a corporate setting would be more concerned about getting a raise in her salary or a promotion, instead of taking care of you, or keeping the house neat and clean. This kind of woman would be a proficient worker who would do wonders for her company. While she would definitely make a great co-worker and office mate, perhaps it would be wiser to choose a Thai woman for a more intimate relationship.
Thai women let men be the boss and it’s no big deal to them
Thai women have no problem letting the man be the leader and handle the tough decisions in the relationship. They are taught in Thai culture that men naturally take up leadership roles and women are good followers. They will not take offense to this kind of set up which is perfectly natural for them.
Other modern women on the other hand, will not easily accept being followers. They will always try to go for the leadership role, or at least be on equal footing in the relationship. This immediately causes a lot of conflict for the man in the relationship who can sometimes feel like his manly pride is being questioned. Lack of respect can follow, and worse, a breakup. All this is avoided by having a relationship with a Thai woman who is very amenable to be a good follower.
Thai girls are very religious
Thai women are raised with the values of Buddhism, a very peaceful religion and way of life. In Buddhism, you are taught about the value of patience and sacrifice through suffering. Material possesions while not frowned upon, are also not the be-all and end-all to life in Buddhism. Thai women are taught that there is a lot more to life than just a high salary and being the boss in a relationship. There is a higher purpose to living life, and so doing good to your fellow man is also important to them.
While a religious choice is everyone’s preference, it is a lot easier to compromise and talk it out with a Buddhist. This is because they are taught that everything in life is temporary, at best. This makes them less concerned with petty arguments and material gains. You won’t need to constantly please a Thai woman with expensive gifts to show your love for her. You won’t need to constantly defend yourself against any real or perceived threats because their religion teaches them to be patient and understanding.
For Thai women, fighting is not the first option
In any relationship there is bound to be some argument or conflict, big or small. It just depends on the frequency and severity of these conflicts. Despite this, you’re a lot less likely and frequently to get into an argument with a Thai woman. This is because Thai women come from Thailand, a country that is renowned the world over for their patience. Thais are patient to a fault and have been known to always pursue the more peaceful alternative to any conflict.
Thai women will get no pleasure from arguing with their significant other. They would rather avoid a conflict or just talk it over calmly and sensibly. Shouting, verbal abuse, and any kind of disrespect and violence is never an option for them in any disagreement. Although this does not guarantee a relationship that is free of arguments and disagreements (are there any even any relationships without some rough spots?) it does allow for an atmosphere where solutions to the problem are a lot more likely, and mutual respect is fostered.
This is a big change from other women who often argue with their partners at the drop of a hat or over the smallest things. We have all heard the horror stories of relationships torn apart, families broken, and messy divorce settlements all over the world. It’s sad to see a once loving relationship deteriorate in this way. When this happens both the man and the woman suffer and it is just plain sad. This does not have to be the case if you choose a Thai woman.
Thai women will never compare you to other men
Perhaps one of the most refreshing qualities of a Thai woman is grounded nature and her sense of being secure and content with her man. You will never see a Thai woman compare you to another man. A Thai woman will love you unconditionally and not focus on your weaknesses a lot. This is a very refreshing breath of fresh air compared to other women who will always find ways to put their man down, like comparing him to more successful or attractive men.
Thai women are satisfied with what they get in a relationship. They are easy to please and are easily content. This is again in line with Buddhist teachings that promote contentedness and a sense of gratitude. This works both ways, as the man is encouraged to improve more and strive for the best because his partner is not always out to humiliate him or put him down. Ask any man, and he will readily tell you that men of all races and nationalities value their manly pride. They don’t like to feel inferior to other men. With no one to put them down, Thai women’s significant others are free to be the best they can be.
This is in stark contrast to other women out there who will always look to other men, and compare you to other more successful men. To other women, the grass is always greener on the other side, and you will always feel pressured to be better or more successful than the guy next to you. This kind of pressure can literally drive a man insane. Not everyone is a super-hero and many men will easily crumble when faced with trying to live up to an ideal.
Oftentimes, the ideal is a far cry from reality, and Western women who leave their men for the perceived better man only find more trouble only masking itself in another form. Perhaps the man she left was not earning as much as the other guy she’s with now. In time, the man she’s with turns out to be an addicted gambler, or deep in other vices. This is only an example but you get the point.
While other women may not compare you to other men so directly, you may feel insecure and inadequate simply because she has achieved more career-wise. There are a lot of super-women out there who will earn more than you and make you seriously question your sense of pride because of their achievements alone. With Thai women, this is not a problem not because they cannot succeed in the corporate world, but simply because they have a different set of values altogether.
Thai women see the more peaceful and serene part of life. They are not quick to argue or judge and will not judge you no matter how much you earn or what you achieve. In the context of a relationship, this is much more ideal.
Whatever the reason, it’s just not a good idea to compare your partner to another person who is perceived to be a lot more successful. While not all women are this way, some have fostered this habit because of the values that they grew up in. The world they are familiar in is the world full of drive, ambition, success, wealth, and power. The pursuit of all these material goals and values outweigh everything else.
Compare this with a Thai woman who is raised in the values of peace, tranquility, patience, and karma. She is bound to be more content with you, and less likely to compare you to other men. And speaking of karma..
A Special Word on Karma
Thai women believe in karma. Karma is an important and intrinsic idea in their life and culture. Karma is something of a sense of justice combined with divine or cosmic retribution. Simply put, in karma everything you do, good or bad, has a corresponding effect, if not now, then in the next life. This is a very important tenement of Buddhism, and Thai women take this concept of karma very seriously. Because of this, they are not quick to do anything that they feel will give them ‘bad karma’ or a negative consequence for their actions.
They are more eager to do good actions, or actions that will give them ‘good karma’ if not in this life, then in the next. It is a sort of cosmic check and balance that Thai women take very seriously in their daily life. This results in very kind and patient women.
While religion is again a personal and ethical choice best left to the individual, wouldn’t you want to go with someone who believes in a cosmic power that will reward good and punish evil, eventually? It’s a lot easier to get along with someone who believes in this kind of sense of right and wrong because she will always be on the side of the right.
Thai women are much better listeners than most women.
Because of modern and progressive ideas like feminism and sexism a lot of women have not practiced the art of good listening. If you have an idea or a suggestion, they are more likely to shoot it down and provide their own idea or proposal. They will not listen to your idea and follow their own. While this is a great way to achieve one’s dreams, get promoted, or move up in a corporate setting, this is not ideal in the context of a relationship. In a relationship, it’s good for both parties to listen and be listened to. Relationships are all about give and take, and that includes good listening.
With a Thai woman, you can always count on having a listening ear. The Thai woman will always be very happy to hear what you say. She will always be accommodating and even praise and encourage you to be open to your ideas. You will always feel welcome and your ideas will always matter with a Thai woman. In this way, they are able to let their men be whoever they really are. In turn, the men are free to become the best version of themselves. This makes it a lot easier for the relationship to prosper.
Thai women can work around a low budget.
Don’t have a lot of cash with you? Is your budget a little tight? That’s no problem to a Thai woman. Because of their Buddhist culture, Thai women are not very materialistic and can live within their means. They are not intimidated by the prospect of living simply and frugally. Many times, material wealth is only a bonus to them. So they will not be quick to demand cash, lavish gifts, or the moon from you.
It’s probably safe to say that a lot of women on the other hand, are radically different. When it comes to wealth and material goods, Thai women and other women can be as different as night and day. Not all women will be so easy to please. They will always look for what is more profitable for them, and will always try to get as much money or material goods as possible. In a society which has created capitalism, and profit is the main driving factor, this shouldn’t really come as a surprise as women, and even men have become blinded by a sense of greed and a lot of cash.
There are other women who are much better at communicating
Unfortunately, you just can’t have it all in this life. Thai women are not very good at the English language. English is not really the main language over at Thailand and this leaves them a little awkward when it comes to communicating through English. They just didn’t have a practical application for it in Thailand. They do have a basic grasp of the language and you can work with this over time.
Thai women are admittedly usually not adept at the English language. English is not really their forte and you may find yourself struggling occasionally to speak with her. However, like any language, English can be learned in time. Through a lot of patience and practice a Thai woman can get the hang of speaking in English, and before you know it, she could be speaking like a natural! It may just take a little more time than usual.
So there you have it. Those are the more significant reasons why it’s better to try your luck with Thai women than with other women. If you consider all the variables involved, you will see that Thai women really are the better choice for having a relationship. They are more compassionate, and patient than a lot of women out there. They’re even more physically attractive than most women! Because Asian women have much lesser obesity rates than their Western women, Thai women are naturally slimmer with more of a slender and curvy figure. All those values with good looks too! How can you possibly go wrong with a Thai woman?
