Dating in Thailand has never been easier. Around 10 to 15 years ago, it was not possible to meet so many girls in Thailand as you can today. With the introduction of the Thai dating sites, meeting a good Thai girl has never been easier.
There are many sites to choose from and yes, you have to pay for most of them to gain full access, but once you do, you cannot fail to attract some interest. Dating on the internet is not the same as dating on the internet in the UK. In the UK, it could take me many many weeks before I was able to actually find a girl who I found attractive and also found me attractive. Over here things are reversed.
In Thailand there are a few rules that I have discovered to creating success on the internet dating scene.
1) Have a photo with a great smile!
Thailand is not called the ‘Land of Smiles’ for nothing! Thai people love to smile, even if they are worried they smile! I remember once going to a Apple repair shop as my friends computer had broken. The Thai people in the shop said (with a massive grin on their faces) ‘Yes, you have lost all your data as your hard disk has crashed’. She said to me, why are they still smiling when I have lost all my work from years ago? I told her, its the Thai smile! So, make sure you smile as well, it will make you more approachable.
2) Find out early on if she speaks English
It has been on numerous occasions that I have spent several minutes wasting my time on a girl who, if i was to meet her, would not have a clue what I was talking about! I only find out once I call them that they do not speak a word of English! Now I wonder why they are able to type in acceptable English, but once I speak to them it strangely disappears? The answer is simple, they often have a girlfriend who is helping them type! I would suggest that you try and get a phone number early on and call them – or use a VOIP provider if she is able to use one of those.
3) Don’t be afraid to ask for a phone number.
When dating in the UK, it could take me many many messages before I would pluck up enough courage to ask for a phone number. The same rules do not apply here in Thailand! It can just take 2 or 3 messages before the girl is ready to hand out her phone number! I myself have 1 number I need to call tonight to say hello to one girl I have my eye on!
I hope these tips have been useful in your quest to meet a nice Thai girl.
