  1. You translate ม่มีใครรักเราเลย as “There is nobody (who) loves me.” This is good English, of course, but I wonder whether a more natural English translation would be, “Nobody loves me.” ….. Similarly, maybe ไม่มีใครเข้าใจผมเลย is more naturally, “Nobody understands me.” WHAT DO YOU THINK? Thank you very much for these web pages of Thai language. They are very helpful.
