A Thai model has touched many hearts on social media after expressing her unconditional love for her moto-taxi driver boyfriend.
The relationship between 22-year-old model Nutchanart Chaichan and her 25-year-old boyfriend Wutthichai Saeng-ngern has fascinated netizens after their story was featured on popular Facebook page YouLike, Coconuts Media reports.
“Why did I choose this man? Although we are different in every way, what we have in common is our love for each other,” Nutchanart wrote.
“Whatever you eat, I’ll eat. Wherever you go, I’ll go,” she noted, referring to her boyfriend. “For us, you’ve taken every job offered to you. You never complain that you’re tired. When I’m with you, I’m happy.”
Nutchanart, who has been in a relationship with Wutthichai for five years, has reportedly received cruel jokes and criticisms over the years. She wrote that people should not judge a man based on money alone.
“Our love has blossomed in the past 5 years. Please don’t think less of a man who works for a few coins. Both of us have worked so hard together. We’ve earned everything we have,” she added.
As moto-taxi fares in Thailand start at just 10 Thailand baht ($0.30) per trip, Wutthichai earns around 500 THB ($15) per day.
Nutchanart revealed in an interview that she met her boyfriend in 2013 in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, which is both their hometown. According to Amarin TV, they later decided to move to Bangkok together as a couple.
Wutthichai revealed that he and Nutchanart started a business together, selling clothes and shoes in the Ramkhamhaeng area. When it didn’t work out, he started driving a moto-taxi while his girlfriend found her first modeling jobs.
According to Wutthichai, he now earns around 15,000 THB ($500) per month.
“I’m not ashamed at all. He’s doing good, honest work,” Nutchanart said.
The pair, who have been saving some money together, revealed that they plan to settle down and have children sometime in the near future.
