Recommended reading for my readers

June 20th, 2010

Today my dear readers I would like to recommend another blog that you might fight interesting. First let me tell you what sparked me to mention it today. It was because I saw a tweet from the author that said this:

Somebody landed at my blog today (thaiwomantalks.com) w/ search: “how much to send mia noi” <straying husband due diligence?

OMG! That makes me laugh. The blog is Thai Woman Talks – Language, Politics and Love. That’s a good title because that’s exactly what it is about. The politics part may not interest you very much. However, learners of Thai may enjoy some of her lessons on Thai language. She has some good ones, including idioms which are always fun.

For the romantic types there are some goodies for you as well. I especially like the Thai Woman Matrix in her post about Thai women and money.

    I am curious what my readers think of that Thai woman matrix. Please come back and comment here after you have looked at it.

    love the matrix – your first good post on the subject of Thai/Farang relationships (although you didn’t write it :-) )

    Hi AsianSweetheart, thanks for the recommendation.

    As the author of the Thai Women Matrix, I’m also curious about the feedback. I had a bit of qualms about the matrix being a Thai woman myself, but heck, I thought, why not try it.

    So far I’ve got only positive feedback from foreign men (via email) who seem to find it informative. However, just recently I had a critical (& polite) feedback from a foreign woman – she said the matrix caused some kind of a buzz, not all positive, in some facebook community. You can check her comments left on my blog here: http://thaiwomantalks.com/comments/ (comments by Alessandra Pierandrei).

    I’d love to hear more feedback from others as well – positive or negative. Thanks in advance.

    I’m glad you came by to comment. I think you put a lot of effort and are brave to publish that matrix. For me, I’m a little bit clumsy when I talk about Thai ladies and foreign men in relationships and I always get attacked, sometimes even when what I write is not my own opinion but just reporting others’. Mostly it’s because I don’t give positive opinions about the relationships in the first column of the matrix and a lot of foreign men get very angry about that.

    I read the comment on your blog by Alessandra. Anytime I hear a western woman talk about relationships between western men and Thai women I always hear something other than the words they are saying – I hear some jealousy and resentment. So I’m never sure to take their words serious. There is a lot of truth in your matrix but I think she resents any women being put into categories. The truth is that many people fit into categories without a lot of “varies” or “wide ranging”. I have seen a lot of variation in She Group 4 and 5 but not so much in the others. I think your matrix is pretty accurate.

    Wow! That’s lovely interesting! Now I have something to read.

    @AS
    That’s the downside of being a man when he has a relationship with Thai women. I’ve been in a relationship with my GF (a Thai and a “Pat”, hihi) for more than 2 years and nobody got jealous. XD

  7. retuRN RANT Says:

    Dear AS, I would like to say that it is great there has been a widening of the description of foreigners and Thais in relationships from categories 1 and 2 – into the matrix. My relationship mostly falls into 4 and the author has hit the nail on the head. The reason I get upset about foreign/Thai bar girl posts and entire forums dedicated to that topic is that is ’smears’ other categories of relationships. I am so pleased you have posted something beyond commenting on old foreigners marrying young Thai women from Issan. Well done !

  8. AsianSweetheart Says:

    Of course there have always been many categories. The thing is, and people get so angry at me for pointing out the obvious, is that most of the relationships in Thailand are category 1. I didn’t make the statistics or estimates, just reported them. I did confirm that the statistics match my own observations, maybe that’s what I get attacked about.

    BTW, there is nothing wrong with category 2. It just might be difficult to adjust to each other. When I did matchmaking it was She Group 2 and 4 ladies I usually had as members. Most were very nice and respectable ladies.

  9. kaewmala Says:

    @AS, regarding your observation on Western women’s jealousy and resentment about Thai (female)-Farang (male) relationships, I’m not sure if it’s necessarily jealousy. Resentment perhaps, if they have a cause to feel it and I guess many do.

    Obviously Alessandra “resents any women being put into categories” as you said – and she is entitled to feel that, but I think her feelings may have something more to do with having different cultural perspective. In her view my putting my fellow countrywomen in categories (like dog breeds as she put it) was reprehensible as it objectified Thai women.

    But from my perspective, the issues of social class and background are important in Thai-farang relationships. Given stereotypes, misrepresentations and dubious assumptions that are mostly based on lack of information (which often result in confusion, headache and heartache), I wanted to offer something accessible to many foreign men who are potential seekers of relationships with Thai women. (Yes, I’m sick and tired of the usual rants “All Thai women are…[enter any epithet]“, too) :)

    The class issue is often something Western people overlook, don’t really understand or underestimate. I personally dislike classism and people looking down on others based on their status and background. But in Thailand class is a reality and even if you don’t like it you need to be aware of some important considerations that are *sometimes* class-related.

    Reprint the matrix!!!!! I think it would have great value to any faring.
    Class is real in the West but it is downplayed. It does matter and is the cause for much problems as most of the US was settled by the scum of Europe who saw a way to become something that was barred from them in Europe.
