Saving face is a huge deal in Thailand and there’s a fear, like with any foreign language, about speaking English and looking stupid if speaking incorrectly. But I guess there is a thing in common with all the relationships: you never know where and when you will meet the special someone! I lived in CM for almost 3 years and did my fair share of dating – and not *all* of them fell into the bartender/bar owner/tattoo artist/tour guide/musician group! I was in school when I first came, so I dated some students, too – and had the same problem you mentioned about really making friendships beyond a surface-level friendliness.The Western women are with the bartenders/musicians/tattoo artists because Somehow I managed to cross this invisible cultural barrier and have found myself now helping in a tattoo shop.

(198,000 sq mi), Thailand is the world's 50th-largest country.

It is the 20th-most-populous country in the world, with around 66 million people.

The type of foreigner I am talking about has probably been here at least a couple of years, works a decent job and has a partner they met in day-to-day circumstances. I think it’s useful first to tell you a little about the background of my relationship and our personal circumstances so you can put things below into context.

The Thai partner will likely be university-educated and work an office job or similar. I am 29 years old and have been living in Thailand for the best part of four years.

By outsiders prior to 1949, it was usually known by the exonym Siam (Thai: with the Sanskrit Śyāma (श्याम, meaning "dark" or "brown").

The names Shan and A-hom seem to be variants of the same word.

Every relationship is different and my situation might be different from yours but it should at least give you a guide. You can email the ad-free version of this article to yourself and read it later.
