Is it usual that when you ask a Thai girl for a date, she brings a friend with her? This has happened to me three times now, and I find it a bit off-putting. I mean when you invite a girl out you want to get to know her, not her friend. I find that she will then spend more time talking and giggling with the friend. That’s when she’s not looking at her phone and answering calls. As I said, I’ve done this three times now and I don’t think I’ll bother any more.
Dear P Doff,
If you’re not going to bother any more, why are you writing emails to me, Petal? But if you’re still going to try, then you should start realizing that this is the way “good girls” date in Thailand. No, they are not going to sleep with you on the first date, or even the second or third, if they have brought along a chaperone. Slowly, slowly, catchee monkey! Learn to live with it, or go back to the bar.
