For the middle aged and up here did you make your friends in Thailand?

Was it something they said about your beloved gf/wife?

No, just loyalties of a soi dog.

Some people here report about friends who are no friends anymore and it sounds like in hindsight they think they were never real friends because if they would have been real friends then they would still be friends.

 

I think having friends and losing friends is just part of life. Most of us change and over time if we change and our friends change then it's likely that at least some of them change in different directions.

 

I.e. maybe 10 years ago I had a friend who I saw regularly (mostly not for drinks). He worked and was mostly happy. Then he didn't work anymore and he was not a happy person anymore. He complained about everything. I saw him less and less. And finally I stopped seeing him because I knew if I would see him for an hour he would use at least 50min to complain. I don't need that. He didn't want to change and I never saw him again. I am sure if he would tell the story it would be different. But one way or another: We changed and not in the same direction and we were no friends anymore. That's life.

You're right, it just took me 45 years to see what a-holes they really were.

Made plenty of friends here over the years, various nationalities.

Just through being friendly, saying Hello.

 

Never been asked for money from a foreign friend.

 

Was asked once by a Thai friend, granted it, took ages to get back, no longer a friend.

 

My friends here one thing I missed when I took a break from Thailand.

 

Maybe I have been lucky.

Only old farts where I live, so have to settle for them. 😞

 

Would like to chat to some1 my age, but have to make do, when I go to work to meet them.

 

Generally, the younger one's GF's don't want me around cause I tell their boyfriends how it really is with the women here. 🙂 They visit once, but the men are not allowed back and they do what she says. Rather have no friends than these weak barstewards. 🙂 

 

Here's hopping for fresh blood, but it's doubtful. 😞

I don't like anybody, and I don't care either.

(outside immediate family)

I did have a few friends, but they died, and I can't be bothered any more.

Would love to have a beer and shoot the <deleted> with you, based on this and your previous posts. 🙂

Made a small number of friends over the decades - all non-Thais. 

 

Most other acquaintances outlived their purpose once people left Thailand or moved within Thailand. 

 

Expats from different countries are often quite different of course. 

 

I had a German friend who returned to Germany a few years ago. He didn't quite like some of my other social group who were from Norway and Sweden. A couple Brit friends seemed to dislike everyone. 

 

They were all older and relatively inflexible to adjust to new people. 

I have found Norwegians and Swedish people to generally be, a r s e h o l e s. But maybe, that's just me. 🙂

Only when they drink.

Exactly, that's what I mean't.

 

I'm Irish and enjoy a beer and the craic, but these people are richards when they drink. 🙂

I can't be bothered to try and understand anyone other than fellow Brits.
