How to tell if a Thai woman is lying to you

Someone recently asked me “How can I tell if a Thai woman is lying to me?”... It’s a good question which we will touch on in this blog post.

As a leading detective agency based in Bangkok, we have exposed many ladies that were lying to their foreign boyfriends. These women come from all walks of life and met their boyfriends under all manner of different circumstances.

Did your Thai girlfriend claim to love you within days of having met you? This type of mock sincerity could be a sign that she is lying to you and perhaps more interested in your wallet than your heart and good nature.

Another warning sign involves cellphones. Does your girlfriend hide her cellphone screen? Are there things on her cellphone that she doesn’t want you to see? You should be deeply worried if this is the case. Think about it: What legitimate reason could she have to conceal her phone activity? Maybe she’s speaking to other men that she doesn’t want you to know about.

If your girlfriend is rushing off to the toilet or balcony to speak on her phone, this should also act as a massive red flag, whatever excuses you’re being told.

Men with partners in Thailand would be wise to examine the financial state of their partners in figuring out how truthful they are being. Is your girlfriend living within her means? If your partner has no means of income but is somehow going out to eat and drink very often, it would be wise to question how she can afford such a lifestyle. Ladies that are earning a basic minimum wage should not have a lavish lifestyle. How much is her rent and utility bills every month? Do the numbers add up? Of course, if your partner is trying to encourage you to send money, she might be painting a different picture entirely.

If you’re looking for information or advice about your girlfriend in Thailand, no article or blog post can give information specific to your situation, and everyone’s circumstances are different. There are a lot of honest people in Thailand, but on the dating scene for Western men, there are often a lot of pitfalls and nefarious ladies looking to take advantage.

The simple fact is this: Some Thai ladies aim to have multiple boyfriends sending them money at the same time. Other women continue to work as prostitutes while their partner lives in another country and is completely unaware. If you are involved with one of these women, you’re effectively hooked up with a professional liar. These women hone their skills over many years. They’ve had dozens of previous foreign boyfriends and they know what men are likely to believe.  They know exactly what excuses you’re likely to fall for and how to make lies sound convincing. It will be very hard to use free advice from the internet to assess whether or not your girlfriend is lying to you under these circumstances.

Don’t think that it can’t happen to you. It does happen to hundreds of men and as they say “a sucker is born every minute”.
