Don't Tell Mates The Thai Truth

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't want anyone to tell me if my wife was messing around.

I wouldn't want anyone to tell my wife if I was messing around.

Mind your own business!

In which twisted reality is this acceptable? You don't really mean that, right?

Funny how thats his reaction at you especially from a grown man. Sometimes maturity doesnt start at any particular age. Surely its just his way of dealing with it in the beginning. I would have done the same and told him. Gotta ask how did you know his mrs was cheating?

Now lets see how many would say you should have minded your own business.

When he would leave for Australia the boy friend would just move back I,d drive the house most days and the boy friend and his mate would drink etc out the front.

i am very happy the OP posted this, as i have been dwelling on how to vent what has just recently happened to me ..first off yes u did the right thing 100% ...

I recently had the same scenario but as fate would have it , i did not get to tell my friend the truth ...he was an American and worked on deep sea fishing boats , i dont warm to yanks generally but he was a good guy , anyway he had been in a relationship with my wifes girlfriend for nearly a year , he came back and forth every few months , meanwhile she had a restaurant and worked away at that , we frequented the place while he was away and most of the time everything seemed normal , she spoke of her love for him and showed of the gold and goodies he purchased for her , they apparently planned to marry buy land on the island etc etc ... anyway my wife spotted a Thai guy floating around more and more at the restaurant , when questioned she dismissed it as an old friend , meanwhile my wife returned to the farm and i stayed alone and continued to eat there , i watched her become more familiar with tourists ,it began to puzzle me why would she do this ? she has a business , money , a good guy and a future ... then one night i was sitting alone and an english guy asked to join me at the table , on holidays he had met the lady in question a month prior and had been living with her for two weeks ...i thought <deleted> ,,,, i was polite finished and left the place , rang my wife told her , she could not believe it .... when she rang and questioned her the next day it was denial denial denial....... anyway i decided when he came i would tell him the truth ... so as it turned out the day he arrived i flew out , i waved to him and told him i would return in two weeks , that week a party was held at the restaurant to celebrate one year of business , he got smashed beyond belief ,rode his scooter home alone and collided driving on the wrong side of the road with two Thais on another scooter , he died instantly , one of the Thai also died , the other is basically disabled for life ... i cannot condone anyone drinking and driving and killing innocent people .... however at the party he found out about his love cheating on him not just with one guy , but with 4 !!!! that would tip anyone over the edge ... the cold hearted bitch carried on life as usual with the odd crocodile tear , but one by one her friends deserted her as did we ... the crunch came for me when the guy from england contacted me on FB ... shortly after the event .. i asked him ..hey do u realise what has happened over here with your female friend ? he said no , i spoke with her on the phone yesterday and she seemed fine ..so i told him the truth ... i hunted down the other 3 and told them the same ... the sad thing is his body remained unclaimed and was cremated at the temple and she did not even attend ... i hate to say this but please guys when it comes to Thai ladies enter at your own risk ..this caused a huge trust issue in my own relationship and things may never be the same ... i feel very sad not too have told him, but i figured it was better face to face, i just did not get the chance .... anyway thats my story ..i have much more to add but why bore u ...

Wow heavy story thanks for sharing that mate

OP; You did well by telling him, your only mistake was that you `thought` he was a mate. You didn't lose a mate, you lost someone not worthy of that title.

Had he been my mate I would have told him too, that is what mates or friends do, friends don't sit and just watch the other person being taken to the cleaners. Friends care for each other.

Couldn't agree more. A mate is just that and should be prepared to side with you. I have told a few people in the past and suffered the consequences but will still continue to do so - my sense of right and wrong just cannot let me keep quiet.

God that you told the truth i know of many a sponsored girl that messes around even if she lives full time with a guy.

Friend of mine has a few of those girls that he ses. Personally i dont see it as a problem as the girls are offering it he does not set out to find these kind of girls but where he lives there are many.

Too many fools around thinking they are in high demand while it is their money.

A sponsored girl who plays around is rather different to an unfaithful wife.

There must be hundreds of cases of western marriages where one partner is being unfaithful, and a friend finds out and has to decide whether to tell their friend. This isn't a uniquely Thai issue, although the way some think, it's only Thai girls that play around or are unfaithful!

I just don't understand the mentality of guys who won't accept the bad news about their "girl" and get angry. I would want to know. If I find out that a real friend has kept the truth from me, that would be a serious breach of trust, as others point out. I would hope, too, that my friend understands me well enough that he knows I would accept the truth of the matter. Now, I would add that anything my friend tells me needs to be founded on the certainty of the situation. Given that qualification, I would, upon being told, thank him, and remove myself from the relationship. I don't get angry with him and I don't get angry with her. I just walk. Yes, I mean that because I understand how loose things are in this environment. I'm not condemning ALL Thai girls. It has to be said, Thai girls and farangs are equally untrustworthy, with few exceptions, in my experience. Thai girls, especially those from the bar world, learn soon enough that farangs are hardly pillars of piety.

The real answer in avoiding this kind of cuckolding situation, as much as possible, is in a tough-minded vetting procedure early on. I can hardly hold out myself as good example (having made some minor mistakes), but it took me nine years of visiting and living in Southeast Asia before I had my first (current) Thai GF. Of course, that's no guarantee of a happy future. But it gives one a good start.

At the same time, if I have a GF or wife, I do not play around. But many Thai girls know farangs, who see their girl off on an upcountry visit, turn right around and (shamefully) head for the short-time streets. So it's a two-way street. Both sides have to earn trust. I think trust and honesty reap a fair share of reward.

Well said

You seem to associate "divorced westerners" and "infidelity". Infidelity happens in every culture. Divorce happens in virtually every culture where the concept is legal. Maybe I misunderstood your point?

i spoke of divorced westerners condemning THAI infidelity as if such things were unique to Thailand.

Well, this forum is about Thailand. Maybe you can point out those who think. "..it's only Thai girls that play around or are unfaithful!"
