Where is my dream girl?


Dear Hillary,

Like any male in Pattaya I’d like to meet the girl of my dreams. Someone with an education, able to discuss the events of the day, well dressed, good looking and honest. She doesn’t have to be Miss Thailand, but must be a nice person you wouldn’t be embarrassed to be seen with. With the number of young girls here in Pattaya, that should be easy – but it isn’t. Starting off with the bar girls. They can’t speak English and almost all of them are jungle bunnies. The ones that can speak English are older than I am, and I’m no spring chicken. So now you look at the ones that have a job. Working in an office, bank, clinic, or the like, these are only interested in money, yours. Many have a “sideline” and if you meet one of these so-called “good girls” at a party and she goes home with you, that is their sideline. And yes, she will ask for money in the morning. Then there’s the ones at the top. You meet them at ‘thank you’ parties, condo openings, very much high on the social scale. Great English, probably spent some time there, and the girl of your dreams is in this group. Only one problem, she isn’t interested in you. So it’s back to the bars where somebody appears interested in you, but they’re not. They are interested in your money! So you are back where you started. Need I go on?


Dear Alby,

You are having a problem, aren’t you. On the round-a-bout and don’t know when to get off. Trying to get a girlfriend, ticking off the various features desired, is like buying a car. Just make the attributes you want to be brown eyes and black hair and you’re off and running. Forget the rest of your ‘must have’ items. Just join the dating game, enjoy the short term liaisons and your dream girl will appear one day.
