Finding the “good” girls


Dear Hillary,

How many times do you get letters from tourists (and even long-stays) asking your advice on how to find the good girl who will look after them and be honest and true (even though all the others haven’t done it). I used to try and advise them, but I reckon these blokes get what they deserve. They’re here for sex, and the girls are in the business of sex for sale. They’ll never find their “good girl” there. Away from the bars, I reckon no self respecting girl would want to be seen with some fat old bloke wobbling along with a skinful of booze every night. You try telling ‘em, Hillary, I’ve given up. They’ve got no (expletive removed) idea.

Al the Advisor

Dear Al,

I understand where you’re coming from Petal, but if you want to be an advisor you’ve got to do more than throwing a bucket of warm manure over the people wanting advice. Once the average chap understands what the bars are for, and what the girls who work in the bars are there for, then you’re about half way there to finding someone who might be THE ONE and obviously not from the bar scene. The bars are for fun, not for evers. You are correct when you say that the chaps looking for a partner have to present themselves in a good way as well. No Thai lady is looking for the kind of farang you best know. Finding THE ONE is difficult in any society, in any country, and is no different here. Just keep on showing those who ask of you where they shouldn’t look, and you’ve done your bit, Al.
