The Seven-11 gang!


Dear Hillary,

One of our friends seems to have an endless line of girls willing to stay with him.  Before you start thinking, we are all happily married and not jealous at all.  The problem we have with this guy is that he sends them packing after a couple of weeks, other than one who lasted a whole two months!  This is the way he lives his life, but our wives are getting tired of meeting another new girlfriend, so they ignore the new girl which then puts a dampener on our pavement social get-togethers, and the evenings turn out bad, with some of our wives saying they will not go out anywhere if he is there.  We have thought about telling him what is going down, but we are worried he will tell us to shove off.  Do you have any idea how we can handle this Thai women problem?

Dear Ernie and the gang,

Your “gang” sounds like a bunch of desperados.  What do you do?  Rob banks?  Anyway, getting back to your problem with a group of happily married Thai ladies and the ones on the outside of the married circle.  This is all caused by the married ladies becoming insecure with a predator single female being introduced into their midst.  There’s nothing you can do to change it, Petal.  Imagine what would happen if Tom Cruise wanted to join your gang?  You might get somewhat anxious too.

    A similar situation but different, my circle of buddies have Thai wives & long time girlfriends, as I do married 13 yrs. I also have a lot of single friends who come for vacations, & in the company of a paid companions.

    The wives & girlfriends make little effort to know the new addition as she maybe changed at any time, so why put forth the effort. Not a jealousy thing. My wife is very secure in our relationship, doesn’t mind me speaking Thai with bar staff, The ladies respect my distance, though I have told some “thong mi jap” ( don’t touch) but usually for persistent vendors. My wife has no problem with those she knows even kissing me on the cheek. But with too much drink some buddies go way out line with bar staff to the point I find it disrespectful to the ladies who accompany them. They pay that price with a few days of very well practiced silent treatment.

    To add I have reduced my circle of friends to eliminate associating with those who have behavior issues, but that is in addition to some other issues I find not in common with our lifestyle.

    Just want to add, been follower you for quite some time, you may remember some issues you helped with me.
