Maybe you can explain your comment a little bit more.
Thai people are into business. Their idea is that the foreigner should pay for all and everything.
I have my second home in Thailand and I have no complaints. I have no private, personal relationship with any Thai person.
I come with my Japanese wife, my daughters and other family members and it is OK.
I never had any problem regarding any business, it will be done, I order and I pay for it. This might be the staff of the house administration, my motorcycle repair shop, the laundry, some restaurants, some places where I buy my food and other items, some medical clinics, bank, etc.
About personal relationship, for some it works and not bad at all over many years - however a huge group of foreign men is rather disappointed, there are plenty of gold diggers out everywhere, even into marriage fraud, property fraud etc. as it is easy to cheat a foreigner who is unable to speak Thai.
