Gals from internet dating getting commission from restaurants?

Recommended Posts

I'm quite gobsmacked to discover anyone has ever bought anything from Top Charoen. I thought everyone knew it was just there to launder.... well, my post will get deleted if I finish the sentence.

If you would decline a good friend, I see no problem in declining a complete stranger.

As suggested she may be using it to filter out poorer applicants but it does suggest a possible gold-digger.

Find your own alternative to suggest, not too shabby, and see if they go for that.

You just filtered out some likely undesirables for free!

It used to be very common for restaurant and bar owners to kick back a percentage to the Thai female who was accompanied by a foreigner, Mrs CM knows to accept the offer and it helps offset our bill (in days gone by).

I'm thinking specifically of the restaurant/bars in Watgate along the river, along the side of it.

I would not be pleased if a restaurant thought my wife was a lady of negotiable virtue.

I can't take responsibility for what somebody else thinks, whatever they think is there problem to deal with not mine. And anyway, given that we used to live a mere stones throw from the restaurant in question and that over a two year period we would eat there at least twice a week, including lunch, it was rather a silly thing for them to do, but what are you going to do, if they offer money you take it.

I did the opposite, My now wife (we met on Thaifriendly) wanted to eat street food on our second date and I took her to sirocco. BTW they aren't all hookers on those sites, you need to weed out the garbage, takes a while though. If you head straight for the hottest ones and your double their age you reap what you sow.

I met a girl at Siam Paragon. I let her choose where to eat. it was Italian and she picked the most expensive item on the menu. I just thought that she figured we wouldn't see each other again and she should get as much as she can even though that might not be the most enjoyable meal for her. Easy, though not cheap, way to vet the goodies from the badies.

Other girls went for something more normal.

Probably something on the order of a coffee date is best. Either one can leave quickly if not happy.

Anyone still use the TF site? And if so has it changed that much since? As I said the last time I was there was when the iPhone 4s was new. But I guess to be fair there are gold diggers on all of the dating type sites, pictures of other people is a classic as well. Has anyone ever gone to meet someone to find they have been duped by a picture that was not who you thought? I got that once haha makes for an interesting story.

The women I know that would insist on going to a place like that are able to pay for their own. So if they don't mind paying for their own then I would gladly tag along. The first meeting is not supposed to break the bank. Meet for coffee or at a cheap Thai restaurant for lunch. Me and my girlfriend met at a cheap Thai restaurant and she did not even order anything. I have not been able to get rid of her since! Back in the States an American woman wanted me to take her to a Thai restaurant. I ended up spending $100 and all I ate was an appetizer. I have not heard from that lady since! Lesson learned.

girls from banks much better, but date one thats not in your bank, and never allow them to dictate

Yeah, finding a lady with a decent job is a good first step—banks, universities, hospitals, corporate offices. Just go into their offices and make inquiries about their products or services. I am an old university professor, going to universities and talking to people at the faculty of your discipline can uncover some nice faculty and students.

I really like Top Charoen optical. The staff are all in form-fitting white suits and are eager to talk, which makes them good hunting, but a nice-looking optician or optometrist may be the prizes.

Several years ago my son was here with a friend. They had done the bar scene and were looking for some nice girls. I took them to a Top Charoen I used to like—always found a reason to go back to have my glasses adjusted or just have them cleaned and jaw with the ladies. When we walked out, both lads had dates the next evening—note to novices: double dates may work easier, and laying down a little ground work doesn't hurt either.

There are so many ways to meet good women face to face and you don't have to spend anything to do so. That's why I just don't see finding a new girl on the internet. I guess I am hard to please. I won't buy anything on the internet unless I have used it, can thoroughly research it, or maybe if I have the recommendation of a respected friend to verify it.

The nice ladies at the shop you mentioned completed my eye exam with my contacts in and told me I didn't need glasses. This is after I told them my prescription was -9.0. Clearly not the brightest women on the planet. I walked in the shop without a seeing eye dog...

I doubt you walked into the shop I mentioned, there are literally hundreds of Top Charoen stores. Please note, I made no guarantee of their professional capabilities and I said the opticians and optometrists were the prize, not the staff.

Obviously this was probably a different shop than I went to. I can't date a woman that is that poor at her job. I am not sure who the prize was supposed to be in my sitiuation since the whole shop was involved in my eye exam.

Just make a time and appointment to go there. Follow it up with a SMS about 10 minutes before you're about to meet up saying traffic is bad you will be 20 minutes late. 25 minutes after than send another saying bad taxi took you to the wrong place. Please wait and order a drink while you get a new taxi. Then 30 minutes later say sorry your mom is sick you need to pai hospital.

I have seen this before I am not sure if its so much for the food or for the selfie at the restaurant so post for all their friends to see they are eating HiSo. Once prior to my getting married I had a TF girl want to meet me at Central World for Sushi. That was fine and the meal was not bad but the conversation revolved around her needing a new phone. An iPhone 4s (newest at the time) none the less. I shrugged it off and said you will have to save to be able to afford it. Her reply was yes unless you buy it for me!! So I said sure lets go. Went up to the apple shop and had her pick out the one she liked, she was excitedly talking to the sales guy. I excused my self with a quick " Katote krup bap numg, pourt tong mak pai hong man na " She smiled and said OK hurry na. I had quite the smirk on my face getting into the taxi going home whilst blocking her number.

Som Nam Na

hong man?

New superhero, Hong Man, powers of a Hong!!!

thanx for many good replies. i agree with you. this gal alleges she is an engineer and even writes on profile meeting for coffee is not acceptable but it must be a quality restaurant.

i messaged her asking if she has a list of acceptable places. sirocco was the reply.

next i thought maybe she gets a commission? maybe she wants to get a free expensive meal? maybe she is a very bitter unhappy person and thinks her ego will be healed with expensive food?

maybe golden pussy syndrome?

Maybe she wants to eliminate the cheapskates

10 - 15,000 baht or more for dinner in your mind is eliminating cheapskates ?

i recall meetin a TF girl that invited me to go with her to get body painting. her profile pic showed a very light skinned person and when we met i firt did not recognize her. she really blew a fuse on photoshop to whiten that much.

anyway she ends up saying she forgot to stop at the atm and asks for 1000 bhat for body painting. this after i covered a decent dinner. i told her i was sleepy and left. no 1000 baht for her body paint. the feudal patronage society along with the majority acceptance of corruption-cheating fuels a lot of it.

Cheapskates come in all denominations and are assessed by the beholder. She apparently was very fond of herself.

I’ve spent several hours in my favorite shop and have seen the staff do the eye tests to fit glasses if the customer had the prescription. So, you may not have even seen the optician, let alone the optometrist—in fact the optometrist at my favorite shop has other shops she services.

If you can't date a woman who is poor at her job; then, I suggest you not date any of the women you saw.

That seems to be basic intelligence, but then many farangs seem to lack the basics where women are concerned. I have seen many farangs married to Thais who complain their wife can't place them ahead of her Thai family, can't embrace his culture, can't live without being in Thailand, can't learn English, can't cook for them, can't eat anything but Thai food, can't stick to a budget, can't be trusted with a credit card, can't handle paying the bills; can't, can't, can’t . . .

Really, then why didn't the farang find-out these things before he married her?

IMO the main point / reason is "the person" and not whether you meet at a normal place or the most expensive.

i have made a couple of female thai friends online that believe it or not are medical doctors (have visited them at work) and they never had such demands. actually ate at an italian rest at central world and wouldn't let me cover the tab. the other one similar.

maybe the gal in question is scorned and trying to feel better about herself by acting this way. maybe very angry at men and or herself. i am not angry at her just sad.
