Have you made as many male friends as you thought you would?


Recommended Posts

If you care to answer could you also briefly explain your situation? 

Retired in Chiang rai is obviously very different than young working in Bangkok.

One good friend and a few more I frequently catch up with. A few more I am riding with and meet on the road for a few days. 

 

Getting new good friends is not the same as when you where younger, a bit more selective now.

None really as the types I come across bring very little value to my life.

No Expectations Either. Suppose that would happen if part of specialist leisure group like bikers, divers or yachties….😎. but I live a quiet secluded life with small family and actively avoid expats now…😏

Made some good friends when I came to Chiang Mai in 2009.

Mostly dead now, 2 left alive, one in Cambodia, one in Oman.

Haven't seen either since COVID.

Doubt I'll bother with any new friends now.

Tired of them dying on me.

I wouldnt be surprised if a few forum members had died as well

Chiang Mai still hanging on?  Last I heard it was pretty quiet.

Not interested. Avoiding making male friends was 2nd only to making female friends! In 25 years, made 3 friends here. One has disappeared completely this year after 15 years and the other, haven't seen in over 2 years but Line Chat occasionally. The 3rd lives is CM, but we share some uncommon interests and keep in regular touch. 

 

Still not interested. Have only 2 true friends back in USA and one is female. "Friends" are usually overrated. :coffee1:

I would not call friends, have some but many acquaintances, have friends from my home country who have also moved to Thailand. I did not come to Thailand to make new western friends

I'm careful with the word "friend" and I don't have more than a handfull of them back home.

Here in Thailand I have a few buddies I go out with for a meal, a game of Pool or a trip through the nightlife. One of them turned out to be what I would call a friend.

Enough for me anyway.
