  • Westerners that become Thai

    I don't mean getting citizenship.

    Thais bicker and argue amongst themselves, but like the Bundys in Married with Children, any external threat sees them quickly close ranks. If you criticise another Thai to a Thai, for dangerous driving, corruption, daftness etc, even though you're right, something within the Thai you say it to will feel hurt and resent, as if you'd said it about them.

    Some westerners act the same way, and become apologists for all things Thai. They're usually the type that abandoned the west for mental health reasons, and the type that feels smug about having handed over a sinsot at their Thai wedding because it helped to make them feel like a proud local.

    Thais that have travelled and are worldly wise can be very annoying to Thais. Farangised Thai won't conform to the face system, has an opinion, and thinks for themselves. This confuses the blinkered indigineous natives.

    ''Why won't she take my side against the evil farang even though I've just ripped him off in front of everyone''

      ^ Thais that become westerners - a mirror image of the OP and just as interesting.

        excellent topic, indeed it raises the question of their mental state

        Thais are little tribal animals, and superior farangs trying to mimic that Thai tribal behaviors might get themselves crushed emotionally and go into the rabbit hole that is Thailand

          When I first arrived in Thailand years ago and headed for Pattaya the first night there I met an English guy who told me that if I wanted to truly understand the Thai population I should think of the country as one big school play ground inhabited by eight year old children.

          That advice when trying to understand nearly every thing undertaken by Thais in general has stood the test of time.
          Don’t you ever feel down in the dumps when you look in a mirror I know I do

              You get the best wisdom from English guys in Pattaya bars.

                yeah they are adult kids, because like all adult kids, they have been raised in a repressed and authoritarian society

                overseas Thai like it so much in the west, they don't want to return full time to Thailand

                farangs who stay there 24/7 for more than 5 years without a real professional reason, should maybe question their real motives for staying there in the first place
