It is with some apprehension that I approach this year's contest, as I will not be commenting on some other poor soul's demise, I'll be in the thick of it, indeed, I am taking lessons from Nancy on how to knobble another contestant without fear of being sussed, and I have just read the document that POTY contestants must sign prior to the contest commencing.

 

TV take no responsibility to what happens after the ordeal is over, and the only rules are that the first one past the post is the winner.

 

Looking forward to an exciting race .......

Yes, but that is not the reason for posting here.

I never got time to get married and have a family –

You were lucky!

Thanks, yes I suppose so.

I should add that it was planned, as I couldn't see to find neither time, nor money, to be a responsible parent at that time; however if it had just happened, it might have changed.

 

On the other hand, planning for being father late was a success for me, as I both had more time – early retirement – and in Thailand enough fund for an in-house combined maid and nanny, when my daughter was small. It worked very well, and I can recommend that solution, the nanny, as it might ease family pressure, and make everybody happy. Even it might be considered luxury today – it's a bit like in many middle class families in older time in the West – it's within financial reach in Thailand, whilst it might be impossible in many a home country.

Furthermore, it might be in my family genes being a father late; my dad was 50 years older than me, and my granddag 44 years older than my dad, so seems like we added 6 years per generation as I was 56...🙂

well, i wasn't going to replay the whole post but........ i did...    This (and many other posts from the usual suspects) is what is interesting to me.  My belief is that many, if not most of the

guys that post here often and have been around thailand for a long time , have had more than the average fellows share of experiences.  Often that is why we somehow find ourselves strangers living in a strange land.   I am among those that had my ups and downs but still am grateful that I chose to spend most of my life here.  I definitely understand when posters have bad or frustrating experiences in Thailand, because I have lived almost all the phases and frustrations that one can encounter.   ( I do sometimes make the point that life has its challenges everywhere and every country) .  I think all in all I have come out of the adventures in life and amazing thailand in fairly good shape.  I guess that answers the question asked in the OP.

I once watched a tv program about Brits that moved to NZ. One couple that had a nice house on a great beach, good job, loved the life etc went back to the UK because they missed the pub. Takes all sorts, but IMO, only guys that have a bit of life experience would even want to live in LOS. It's really not a country for farangs that want routine lives where the evening down pub is the highlight of the day.

For some it is.

I started on TVF way back because I wanted to warn others of a scam on a Phangan beach, but had I not joined then I'd have wanted to for sure after my divorce to warn mugs like me about Thai wives.

I started ,just to find something out ,but honestly i only know one guy who was ripped off by his Thai wife , but lets face it there are dozens who were ripped off by their own country wives .

Sad is the man who got ripped off by a countrywoman and then married a Thai girl only to get ripped off by her too. They ain't different under the skin. Still bleed red.
