Rule #2 - Do not send a Thai woman money.
In addition, think twice before handing over a large sum of money to a woman for a home or business. Only give what you can afford to give and only an amount that will leave you saying, “mai pen rai,” if you do end up losing it all.
Rule #3 - Do not go looking for the love of your life in places that cater to men.
Use your head, knucklehead, and I don't mean the little one. If your sweetie-pie is working in the local soapy, giving hand jobs in a massage parlor, working in the karaoke joint down the street from your swinging bachelor pad, chances are you're breaking rule #1 if you're stupid enough to fall in love with her. Despite what they may lead you to believe, women working in these type of places are generally on the game.
Rule 4 - Do not fall in love in Pattaya
Falling in love in Pattaya is like going to a brothel to find your soul mate. Pattaya is a city built on fulfilling men’s needs, don't be an idiot. It's not called Sin City and viewed as the world's largest brothel for nothing!
Rule 5 - Learn the language and culture before entering into a serious relationship.
Whether you're visiting or living in Thailand, to have any serious chance of a successful relationship, you need to be able to communicate. If you don't speak and your new love interest doesn't speak English, how are you going to communicate? Sign language? Pigeon English? Even if she does speak decent English, take the time to learn about Thai culture. You can thank me later.
Rule 6 - You can take the girl out of the bar but you can't take the bar out of the girl.
You won't be the first dumb-ass to think you're the man to change this poor, sweet prostitute. Yea right, your girl is different. I have some swampland for sale, too. I can't let you see it because it's on sacred Indian burial grounds . Now hand over the down payment.
