It is part of the fan-base accessibility image ploy but it still annoys me to no end. Most Thai stars follow a script when trying to answer about their love lives–work always come before love and no they’re not lonely, they have their moms.
A well-known mama’s boy, Rome told a reporter during an one-on-one interview that work is more important and love can wait for later.
His response when asked about his love life:
This line of work is tiring and I’m not hiding a lover. It has always been like this, there is not a lot of people who come into my life. I have existed like this for a long time. When I have personal time off, I work-out at the house or care for my dog. It is rarity I even get personal time off, but on the rare cases that I do, I don’t even want to go anywhere. I just stay at home. My phone bill, I don’t even go out and pay for it, I make my mother do it consistently because I just want to stay at home and care for my dog or ride my motorcycle.
So you’re saying work comes first and love can come later?
I say that work is harder to find than love. It’s true that wealth can’t help you find a girlfriend and love can not be brought; however, I believe in fate. We’re at this place because of fate, when the time comes, it will come by itself.
Though I’m not sure whether “Som” Thansinee, actress from “Supaab Borut Satan (Gentleman Satan)” believes in fate but she also follows the same philosophy as Rome—work before love and she is a mama’s girl.
Som’s response when asked why she hasn’t found a boyfriend yet:
Maybe it is because I have not found that person yet and also I’m not ready to date anyone. I been continuously working and don’t have time. When you asked whether I was lonely, I say occasionally. It depends on my mood. But I do have my mother around as a friend so I feel complete. My mother and I are very close. If I was to see someone, I know for sure my mother would be greatly concerned. Not having anyone is also a good thing because I’m a workaholic. If I had a boyfriend there wouldn’t be time for him and we wouldn’t last. If I do have a boyfriend and it’s not the collar on your neck type, I would be happy.
