Buriram girls; the phone call
Nan called me one day in July; I had been back in the United Kingdom for almost six weeks by then. I could tell immediately that something was not quite right... she seemed a little troubled and I wondered if she was having problems with her family back in the village.
She eventually confessed that she was pregnant and that the baby was mine. I was happy at the news.
We had started to build a home near Pattaya close to my friends and everything was going well. Perhaps it was a good time to start a family? Nan was pleased with my reaction. I think she had been a little concerned about how I would react as we had never talked about children.
I had heard a lot of stories about Buriram girls deceiving western men with regard to the paternity of a child. However, having carefully studied the dates I was convinced that the baby was mine.
If the dates were correct then we had been together in Buriram visiting her family. The expat Buriram nightlife scene is small, but there are bars and discos in the city itself. I enjoyed the time I spent there and can vividly remember that we were inseparable during that month together.
In fact, I don’t recall one single time that we were not in the same room or building. We agreed that having a baby would be a good thing for our relationship and that she should go to see a doctor.
There are a lot of Thai girls online that are just looking for some short-term fun with an exotic Westerner like you! Serious romance or no-strings fun is available on:

During the following months, my trips to Thailand were spent taking care of Nan and visiting the hospital for regular check-ups and scans. The scan confirmed that Nan had conceived during our time together.
As the pregnancy got closer, Nan began to become a little tense. Her attitude towards me changed slightly but I put it down to the pregnancy. After all, many western women get a little moody when they’re pregnant, right, so why should Buriram girls be any different?
I continued to be the doting boyfriend, providing for her needs...
My family from the UK came over to see us on a number of occasions during the pregnancy. My mother and father had already met Nan and they had really clicked. They had a good relationship with her and enjoyed her company. The feeling was mutual with Nan particularly friendly with my mother.
The first time that they visited us during the pregnancy, Nan seemed a little withdrawn. She would not interact with them in the same way and seemed a little distant. I could not really understand this.
My parents asked me if everything was okay as they had noticed a change in attitude from Nan towards them. Previously she had enjoyed going shopping to the markets with my mother and they could be out for the entire day together. However, this time she did not want to be alone with either of my parents.
Again, I put it down to the pregnancy...
Unfortunately, I was not present at the birth of my son, being apart for long periods is one of the bad aspects of dating Thai women.
With a new baby on the way I had to ensure that we were financially secure, and the company that I was working for in the UK was going through a difficult period, there was even talk of redundancies.
I had to make sure that my job was secure which involved making myself available for overtime as much as possible.
Thailand tourist hotspots are no place to go looking for a keeper...
Nan gave birth to my son three weeks earlier than expected which meant that I was still in the UK working. After a few days of concern, she called me to say that everything was okay and that they were being allowed to leave the hospital.
When I had finished my rotation, I immediately flew to Thailand. Nan was living with her family so I would stay there too. I was travelling to Thailand with a friend of mine who was going back to Pattaya.
During the plane journey he told me that he had heard rumours that Nan had been dating somebody else when I was back in the UK. I could not believe this. My world seemed to come crashing down but my friend emphasised that it was all just rumours and that I should speak to Nan first because untrue rumours about Buriram girls are not exactly rare.
