His circle of friends consists of his fellow NGO workers.
None of them can even count to ten in Thai or ask for a bottle of water.
As a side benefit of his job, he’s probably slept with a student of two if they were of legal age (Or, let’s just admit it, you’re his student). Heck, he might even be the guy from your hometown that was always in love with you but who you thought you were too good for.
That is, before the Bangkok dating scene knocked you off of your pedestal.
He needs to sleep at home and his mom calls him to remind him of that every night at 10pm.
He’s expected to take over the family business and take the right kind of wife. The Foreign Guy with a Thai Wife (that he’s cheating on with you – you’re foreign) He’s married or has a really serious girlfriend, and he might tell you that he hasn’t slept with her for months.
You probably end things for good when you catch him in a compromising position with one of the underprivileged bar girls he’s supposed to be saving. The Mama’s Boy He will never love you more than his conservative Thai-Chinese mother.
(BTW, his mother thinks he’s your language exchange partner and still hates you because you’re a dirty, nasty farang).
His place will be one room, next door to his school and cost no more than THB5,000 per month. You might have met him online or picked him up during your travels.The Hipster You might have met him when he was skateboarding on Soi Nana and you were going to an art opening at Cho Why. He might have a vintage shop on Instagram or sell weed brownies on LINE.He spends all his money on limited-edition Adidas and occasionally eats at expensive cafes so he can Instagram them using a fade filter.He considers it slumming when he goes into Gourmet Market to get his own food.That’s his version of 7-Eleven, another place he won’t go.
