Thai Girls and Temples, The Perfect Excuse!

Recommended Posts

Temples are a big part of Thai Culture and I have great respect for that. Most of my Thai friends, both men and women make frequent trips to various temples and it usually involves a few hours or less. However once in awhile they go for multi day trips to a temple. My question is: Are these multiday trips a real religious experience or just an excuse to disappear for a few days for whatever reason? Friends have told me on occasion that their Girl Friends are unavailable for a few days as they have gone to the temple. What pops up in my mind is that it really is an almost perfect excuse for a "time out" in a relationship. 1. Who can argue about her going to a temple? 2. No phones allowed so no worries about receiving unwanted calls. 3. No visitors so no checking up on them. 4. Since there are no phones allowed they don't have any pictures to share when back to their normal lives. 5. The desired temple can be in a remote location to further lessen the chance of being checked up on.

Recently a GF of mine began telling me several weeks in advance that she had to go with her mother to a remote temple for several days and was it OK? As time got closer her mother got sick and I questioned whether or not she was able to go? She said it was very important to her mother to go even if sick. Yeah Right! After a little investigation she admitted that She was really going on a 4 day trip to another country. But by Herself of course! Haha.

So has the "Temple excuse" been used on you or anyone you know?

Not on me because once I pay them and they are gone, I care nothing about them or what they do.

Well all I will say is good for her you don't own her,  as you say she is just a GF and you are just a boyfriend.


FYI Genuine Temple trips do happen my wife likes me to take her and some family to Temples now and again, a days drive away some of them, first is wife gets me guesthouse near bar.

They then go to listen to a certain Monk who has got a reputation that's spread for whatever it is he has become famous for, either about telling fortunes, giving lottery numbers or issuing medicine made in the Temple.

The longer that I am here the more I can appreciate that! It's definitely cheaper than a relationship!

I think I would be bored to death! But the guesthouse near the bar? Sounds a little better!

I think the OP was referring to the 7+ days in a temple with no phones allowed.

Mine was telling me she was attending the Temple with her mother and brother...except it was not her mother...or brother...

 

Should I be concerned?   🤔

Yes i think it is normal,i have seen it a few times and yes it is a 'time out'.Time to reflect on the past and contemplate the future.

All are women and they will wear white for the time being.

They can use their phone when not in sessions.

You can ask her to call you when she can,but if you do not trust her i would use those few days to disappear.

What is the use of staying if you have doubts about her?

I really don't have doubts about her? She is already in the "if her mouth is moving she is probably lying" category. Why do I keep her around? She is teaching me a lot about how women here use men and of course the extra special skills she uses as part of that! Did I mention that she is pretty darn pleasant to be around! Red lights flashing but I can't escape!

I might know some of these girls to be honest. They’re basically freelancers and they get paid about 20-30k baht to spend a night at private parties and casinos on nearby countries or islands for instance. Yeah I know at least two of them who have forgein boyfriends and they don’t tell their boyfriends when they go in these holidays. One used to live on same build as me. A place with many expats. Met her at a private party in an island when she was hired through somene I know. From what she told me she and her friends made excuses to her boyfriends that they were visiting family etc. Matches your story hmm.
