Sorry Tina but this is such an apt title for this blog!
The word love has been used so much and mostly for commercial gains so what really is love. Too many songs has that word repeated and so diluting the meaning. So love becomes how Hallmark defines it! But in reality is it love they sing about or this new 21st century disease, the “Poor Me” syndrome.
Then if you match these two combinations, love and a farang and a Thai relationship. Most people become quite cynical, me included. But I’m sick of all this poor farangs cheated by Thai women bantering also.
Then I came across these clips on YouTube and was mesmerised by the whole thing! They are not polished American style docudrama but a cold hard look at genuine people who are looking at how to survive.
Not glamorous, not exciting, nonetheless real. Through it all, what I saw was genuine desire for a better life. Not exploitation of the superior by an inferior. Not people trafficking by marriage. Just lives, lives of people who suffered for whatever reasons and found solace in one another.
This made me think about my own personal views and opinions on being female and relationships. I now have to redefine my ground and rethink.
If you have time then watch all 7 clips with an open mind. Then tell me what you think?
