They will take off the shirt if they want to get henna on their chest, but really I think they just want to show off their bodies. It’s a Thai tradition that the guy has to give her the whole world: he has to have a car, money, job and all that stuff. I get a lot of guys saying they want a henna tattoo in a place where they have to take off some clothes for me to do it. But I was born and raised in Texas, I’m more American. She ended up leaving me to go back to her ex-boyfriend because he could provide more for her. What’s the worst thing that ever happened while giving someone a henna tattoo? My boyfriend is a skater and now it’s just the type I like. Is there anything he could do to make you end things with him? But I don’t think I would date someone I met here anyway.
People sell old clothes, things people make themselves, t-shirts from punk bands, that kind of thing. I don’t want to make a generalization, but it seems like Thai women are very interested in money. If they have money, they are looking for another guy on their level. They are too shallow, but I meet a lot of them at work. What you can do for them and so they can look fancy in front of their friends. Sometimes it seems like the only thing they are interested in. If they have been poor, they are looking for security. I think American girls they know hardships and what it takes to get a car or pay rent or go to school. My girlfriend is about to graduate college and she has her first part-time job now. She really wants me to get a car, but I can’t afford it right now and you don’t need a car in Bangkok, it’s just a status thing.
