You can blame traffic (leave earlier), you could blame the slow pace of life (hardly, Bangkok is a booming place), the fact of the matter is Thai people don't care about your time they only care about themselves and being late is not because they didn't mean it intentionally they did, they were doing something else and didn't care that you were waiting for two hours to arrive.
Contratry to popular belief about how polite Thai people are and how respect is a huge part of society, the truth couldn't be further from the truth.
As a soldier’s girlfriend, you’ll have to field a lot of the same questions, and frequently clear up misnomers about the Army. Far too many of my soldier friends have had “Jodi” get their girl (you may want to look that up), and it’s especially hurtful to them.
That coupled with the stress and exhaustion that comes with Army life can make it hard for him to spend lots of time planning things for the two of you to do together.
Now, this does NOT mean you should boss him around.
If you make the effort once in a while, then he can sit back, relax, and enjoy the evening you planned. However, in my experience, finding people who understand the trials and tribulations of being in a relationship with a soldier is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Needless to say, soldiers place a LOT of value on loyalty.
Among my friends, I’ve had girlfriends who want to hook them up with soldiers in my guy’s regiment, guyfriends who ask me if he’s going to kill them if they flirt with me, and even coworkers who, shall we say, were less than supportive of the military in general. So if your guy has committed himself to an serious relationship with you, he’s most likely going to stick to that commitment, and he expects you to do the same.
So I spend my weekdays going out with my pals, catching up with my mom, and working on that promotion. Bonus: Meeting their girlfriends and wives provided me with a whole new support group. But a military man spends most of his time having other people telling him where to go, when to be there, and how to be dressed.
Truth be told, it’s hard for them to turn this off.There are North, South, Eastern, and central Thai people.Thai people even have a saying about what they are like depending on where you come from a Thai person would say Northern Thai people are lazy, Southern Thai people are bad news, Central Thai people are selfish, Eastern Thai people only care about money.This is the honest truth, have you ever wondered why there are so many people employed to do the job that 1 person can do?It's not because Thai people are centered on service, in fact, Australia is a more people working in services than Thailand and it has half of it's population.The majority of Thai people come from the countryside of Thailand, therefore to get a good idea of what Thai people are really like we can start there.
