I really don't have any reason to go back to the US except to make extra bucks.
In the US, I have no house, no car, no debts, no mortgages, nothing in the US, except for bank accounts. There's nothing to go back to.

I only have 2 close family members in the US, my father and younger brother. Not that close to them to be honest, and neither am I that close to the rest of my relatives in Taiwan who can be quite nagging and critical.

My friends are mostly in Asia now.

My high school and college classmates have all scattered across the country after graduation, and my family moved to a new city just last year.

On the other hand, most Thais and Filipinos have villages to go back to. Their home village will always be their home, and their extended family and childhood friends will always be there for them. Most of us HA'ers probably don't have this.
I just told my GF that I simply don't have this kind of a home community. I was born in Silicon Valley, USA, where people move around all the time, and relationships ultimately turn out to be quite shallow and brief. And my parents were born in Taipei, which is another large, workaholic city itself. They didn't make lasting childhood friends in Taipei either, since they were pushed to study, study, study and not have any social life at all.

I thought the younger generation of Asian guys had it better than my generation. Maybe I thought wrong.


Yes. American kids often come from families with problems.

I can easily make friends with Asian-American women on a platonic level, but have never been able to get intimate with one. There's little discrimination against Asian Americans in California nowadays since they often make up the majority in many areas. I had a very hard time scoring dates in the US when I was in high school and college (15-22). But every time I step outside the US, scoring dates would never be as hard as pulling teeth.

But in Asia it's the opposite. Many girls are attracted to me, and my previous GF's in Asia were all cautious about me becoming a playboy.

You guys should also check out the Gallup Global Well-being Index.

http://www.gallup.com/175196/gallup-healthways-index-methodology.aspx

It's based on these 5 things.
1. sense of purpose
2. social relationships
3. financial security
4. relationship to community
5. physical health

As you can see, money is just 1 of 5 things.

In Thailand, I have all 5, with financial security probably less than what you'd have in the US.
1, 2, and 4 (all related to mental well-being) are obviously lacking in the US.

Gallup's results show that the happiest countries in the world are actually in Latin America.
http://www.gallup.com/poll/175694/country-varies-greatly-worldwide.aspx

And guess what the high-scoring country in East and SE Asia is? Myanmar. And it's the poorest country too.

Notice how as soon as you get to the financial category you get a completely different set of countries on a completely different continent.

1. Thailand is even more materialistic than American.
Younger women expect you to take care of them (expect you to pay $$ for them). Basically it is almost impossible to tell the difference between a normal Thai girl and a Thai prostitute.
Older Thai women are more likely to help pay for things on their own and take less of your money.

2. Older girlfriends are less Lesbian and less Feminist than younger Thai girls.


Thailand is great if you:
1. Are a faggot and/or Like ladyboys
2. Are an Asian lesbian
3. Love to whore monger for over priced whores who are not that great

There is hope. Thailand borders Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. The women there are more traditional and decent.


Issan is one of the poorest part of THailand where most of the bar girls come from. Unless time changes with Issan not much out there. So do you check off 3 on the list?

Actually, most of the prostitutes serving Asian clients in Bangkok come from northern Thailand. They're notorious for their gold-digging tendencies as well, if not worse. The ones serving white (Western) clients are mostly from the northeast.

And Thais really aren't that poor. They'll always be way better off than their neighboring countries to the east and west. Isan is actually doing OK now, since poverty levels have dropped drastically in that area.

Falcon,

I guess times changed since i last visited thailand. Most of the bar girls i saw were from issan.

Is there a difference between northern vs nothern east thai?

If your a farang in thailand the assumption is your rich and ever thai tries to rip you off. Thats why i hated thailand. I visted way back in 2000. Im korean and at time the thais thought i was chinese thai or japanese but once i told them im from america they thought i was mixed in any case thais just love money but maybe thats just what the outsider experience.

Well Jonny you seem to be the type that wants to monger ..correct me if I' wrong. Would an ESL teacher income in Issan afford that life style? I once visited Issan but this was way back in 2000. English was hardly used and everything was really under develop compared to the city.

Yeah, I am interested in your day to day living in Issan - renting a place, your job, can you afford everything you need on the salary. I would be interested to know about your life outside women for sure. :D

Chanta, northern Thailand is the polar opposite of NE Thailand in many ways. People are much more reserved, and their looks are much more NE Asian. It's a totally different culture.

Keep in mind that Lanna (Northern Thailand) and Lanxang (Isan and Laos) only became part of Siam (Thailand) recently, within the past 200 years or so. This is comparable to the annexation of Xinjiang and Tibet.

You don't want them to speak too much English, because in Isan those that speak a little too much English and aren't in education or government, have probably had experience ripping off Farangs.

BULLSHIT

Got Bangkok for decent Issan chicks. I live here I know.

falcon,

Did time changes since 2000? Most of the bar girls I saw at Nana plaza or Soi Cowboy were either from Issan or chang mai not sure if it changed since than. Maybe it did. Back in 2000 I did travel around Isan and it look dirt poor to me maybe the location I was going at..no one spoke english.

Johnny law,

Curious what happened to you in your previous life you seem mad all the time judging from your post. Speaking of which if you do monger how do you afford that with an ESL salary in Thailand. I heard stories of ESL teachers from South Korea or Japan that would go to THailand to party it up since they can afford it.

"previous life you seem mad all the time judging from your post."
f**k you right in the f***ing NOSE! As you can see be my previous posts!
1. I am just like you. Vomiting rainbows and politically correct double-speak. I shit MAGIC SUNSHINE BITCH!

"monger how do you afford that with an ESL salary in Thailand?"

2. NO! Regular Thai girls f**k me. But the regular girl in Thailand might as well be prostitutes.
Anyways, the reason I can afford things here is because... The cost of living is a lot lower JACKASS!

"Did time changes since 2000? "
3.YES! I can see in the last 5 years things have changed. I work in Issan as an English teacher. The grade 6 class of 500 students have 0 (mixed white-thai). Many of the Kindergarten kids are mixed (white-asian). So in that time there has been a lot of f***ing between Issan whores and westerners.

Most of the bar girls I saw at Nana plaza or Soi Cowboy were either from Issan or chang mai
The place I live in Issan has shit for women. They are f***ing worthless. They are happy f***ing their cousins and hating you. The decent girls I meet in Thialnd have been in Bangkok and Chang Mai.
-The Difference-
You visited Thailand. I live in Thailand.
