Here are some top tips for improving your Thai online dating success. Many men like the idea of finding a loving wife from Thailand, so these tips can help you achieve your goals.
Make a decent looking dating profile
When you sign up to a Thai online dating site it's good to fill out as many details in your profile as possible. Pay for full membership of the site - that way ladies will know you're serious about finding a partner from Thailand. Upload a few photos of yourself, particularly "life style" shots that show you enjoying your hobbies and interests. Remember that most men on dating sites are timewasters, so if you bear this in mind you can easily make your profile stand out from the rest.
Does she exist?
Sadly there are dating site scammers on many of the Thai online dating sites. These scammers range from organised scammers to Thai ladies just supplementing their income. Organised scammers aren't always from Thailand - many scammers are based in West African countries but pretend to be anyone from rich American men (to scam women) to single Thai ladies (to scam men). In many cases their scams aren't particularly sophisticated, but do not forget that there are people in most countries of the world who have lost their life savings to African dating site scammers.
The second type of dating site scammer are the Thai ladies who get their income from talking to men online. A few dollars here or there in gifts can make for a decent income in Thailand. These ladies are particularly common on Thai dating sites as they are often ladies from the country's large entertainment industry. As with the first type of scammer, be wary of anyone who asks for money, particularly if you haven't met them.
Is she sincere?
One of the hardest aspects of online Thai dating is finding a lady who is sincere. This is very hard to do, and you just have to trust your male intuition. Tips for finding a good lady include:
- Looking for someone close to your own age.
- Looking for a lady with a job that has nothing to do with Thailand's huge entertainment industry.
Taking your time to get to know her.
- Try and get to know her friends and family, or use an introduction agency based dating site so that her past can be checked.
Are her photos natural looking?
If you sign up to any of the Thai online dating websites then you'll probably notice that many of the ladies have airbrushed and professional looking studio photos. Before getting too romantically involved with a Thai lady it's always a good idea to get natural looking photos of her. In many cases Thai ladies do actually look as lovely in real life as they do in their studio photos, but all the same it's better to be sure. It's also a good idea to have one or two webcam sessions with a lady - that way you'll have a better idea of what she really looks like.
Be wary of letter writing sites
When you're looking for a Thai dating site, be aware that there are two different type of site. Actually there are three - the other type is the introduction agency run site. These are a good way to meet a Thai lady online.
So as for the other types of Thai dating site - there are two types:
- Pay per contact site (letter writing)
- Subscription site
Both types of site are normally completely free to sign up to. So if you're just considering the idea of finding a Thai wife or girlfriend then you can browse the personals on the sites and see if there's anyone you like the look of.
Be wary of the letter writing type of Asian dating site. These are normally free to sign up to, but you pay every time you send or receive a letter (usually an email) from a lady. This type of dating site can work out a very expensive way of Thai dating. It's also wide open to abuse, as a website can make a great deal of money from fake profiles and standard letter responses. These websites make the bulk of their email from new users, so be careful.
Usually a more affordable Thai online dating option is to go for one of the dating sites that offer a flat rate subscription. These sites include ThaiKisses, Thai Love Links and Cherry Blossoms. Both offer monthly or annual subscriptions. For that you can contact as many ladies as you want, so it's generally a more affordable option. You may still need a translator, but in all honesty you're better off finding your own translator you can trust, or look for a Thai lady that can understand some English.
So these are a few useful tips for improving your Thai online dating experience. Happy dating!
