Belle* is 28 years old and has never been on a date in her life. Remember, you’re a beautiful, chatty, lovely person!
One recent afternoon, in a group chat between six Thai women who went to college together, Belle sent a candid photo of a decent-looking man she came across in her diplomatic career. ” one friend in the group suggested in the way that one offers advice to a friend that you know is destined for disappointment.
So, while chatting and giggling to friends about guys you like may be hilarious, the sad truth is that many Thai women seem to put themselves in the relatively hopeless position of playing the waiting game — just praying that the men they like will like them back and take the initiative.
Comic strip “honesty sandwich,” by young Thai female artist Tuna Dunn, hilariously illustrates what it’s like to be a Thai woman, who hopes for a sign about a guy rather than confess her attraction to him.

I feel that men value the women they ask out more [than the women who ask them out].” Two days later, Belle updated the chat group that she had failed to talk to the guy in the candid photo and didn’t know if she’d ever see him again.
She sent a message, the kind that has appeared in many thousands of all-girl chats throughout history: “Girls, what should I do? I remember receiving eerily similar messages from my childhood friends, high-school friends, and even former colleagues — poorly taken photos of guys with hopeful captions that illustrate their anticipation and excitement at the possibility of romance — but most of the time, those feelings are left unspoken.

Thai women, particularly those in Bangkok, are more active on the internet and are interested in education, dating and news.
Looking for a friend to hang out with first and foremost. I love to read, write, watch American TV shows (i.e., Game of Thrones, The Originals, Criminal Minds, etc), cook, eat, si..
Think about the invisible office girls in ballet flats that you look right through on the BTS, the good girls who live with their parents in the suburbs, or the intense career women who receive more messages on Linked In than Tinder. While there are no men courting them, they’re not bold enough when it comes to romance — they simply weren’t raised to assert themselves with the opposite sex.
