There has been a rise in the popularity and number of Thai dating sites in the last two years, the majority, unsurprisingly, centered on western men meeting Thai women. Whether this is because Thai women are increasing in popularity, or whether they are becoming increasingly web savvy, isn't clear. It's a great thing though, and many fruitful relationships materialise through this way of meeting. I personally know a number of couples who've met through online dating, and a number of single, English-speaking Thai women active on these sites. This is now the preferred way to meet women, and in many respects it's better than nightclubs, bars and personal introductions, which can often turn into a nightmare. Many men travelling on business or coming for a holiday in the region find a date for their visit online. In this post, I'm going to give you some of my top tips for using Thai dating sites, and provide you with a comparison and overview of my experience with the 6 top sites.
Start off on the right foot and seek a woman that shares your interests, values and intentions. Like all dating sites, functionality is restricted to the membership you have. Click on the image above to visit the ThaiCupid website. Click on the image above to visit the ThaiFriendly website. Click on the image above to visit the AsianDating website. Click on the image above to visit the MizzThai website. Click on the image above to visit the Smooci website. Another one you can add to the list in ThaiRomances.
Will try something more sustainable and lasting next visit. Good advice to communicate on-line for a few months in advance of meeting. Had a good time with her when we finally met.
We were contimplating marriage and she Insisted on " Friends first! Love takes time patience look and some diligence. After losing my wife of twenty years to lung disease, waiting a year and using Smooci.
Thanks for the intro! I've been using several of the sites before heading to Thailand just to give them a whirl. As I'm in my 20s and very good-looking, it isn't hard for me to find matches on dating sites. That being said, my experience is this: Almost all of the women on there are oriented towards long-term relationships and support and usually will say so.
Also, I've gotten upwards of 50 messages at time of writing and can only see the two sent by premium members. If you aren't a premium member, you can't really contact potential dates Thai Joop is an interesting app that seems to have a lot less users, though messaging isn't limited to premium members.
However, it seems to me to that many of the profiles are bots. Also, I think a lot of messages don't get sent, seen, or received And even if you aren't interested in the large number of year old girls on there, there seem to be more and more older members who are actively on there yes, they've contacted me too.
Messaging as a free member is frustrating because they make you wait in between sending messages, but once there's mutual interest I just take the discussion to the Line app and continue uninhibited. Many girls will even put their Line ID in their profiles or send it to you if they are interested.
The amount of profile info is very little, but that might be some of its appeal. All the girls I've talked to so far seem very tired of farang on the dating sites asking about sex, money, nude photos, etc and usually wonder why such users don't just find a bargirl or go to Pattaya.
But if you just respect them as the women they are, I've found many are open to more casual situations and having fun. If you want to indulge in your misogyny you'll have to pay for sex, or you could be a decent human being and have a fling with any number of interesting hot Thai girls. I met a beautiful Thai lady through ThaiCupid. I am 59 and she is We were together for 3 weeks in October I am going to see her again in December In my experience this is a great site.
I had never used internet dating before. I wish you all the best for your trip. What site is probably the real thing, if i only want sex? I am not after relationship or marry. I just want women for sex. Maybe women who did not have sex for a long time. If I would live in Australia I have so many who wanted sex dating with me and nothing more, and I could have one every day. Is there some site like this for men and women looking for no relationship but sex only.
I guess it is different here. By the way I like your comments about all the dating sites. You could try Thai Friendly for that, but be upfront about what you are looking for, i. But in this situation I think you have to be prepared to at least wine and dine the lady; go out to a restaurant, or even away for the weekend. Of course, this isn't an uncommon scenario. If you are looking for a "travel companion", then Mizz Thai caters for exactly that.
The idea would be that you pay for a lady to accompany you on a trip and you pay the hotel, meals, etc, and then the romance becomes a part of that. I have been trying for couple of years now and haven't had a chance on tinder etc.
Please kindly share those sites. I am in Sydney by the way and just looking for casual sex dates or one night stands. Thai Friendly by far the best for the younger girls Patience and politeness will get you dates with good girls who have had enough of Thai guys, and many haven't got that hangup about guys over This is the best information out there.
I am going to Phuket for 3 weeks in Nov. I have been married 3 times. I lived in Honduras. Beautiful girls, but after living and dating there for 5 years I got married and came back to the states. The 1stone was great, perfect wife but her kids became a problem and we broke up.
Part of it is my fault. I went out with them for 18 to 23 or so got married and as they matured they wanted different things. But the last one when I told her I was taking her home waited until the date before she was to go home called the police, said I had held her hostage for 5 months beat here daily that I was an assassin for Pablo Escobar and on and on.
I was arrested, charge were of course dropped. But now that is on my record for domestic violence. Damn, that's quite a life story.
Please Update Your Browser
I am surprised after the second wife you didn't decide to stay single: What about sites for us lonely farang women looking for the one Thai man who isn't afraid of foreign women???
I often wondered that but perhaps the demand is so small I guess it hasn't warranted a site thus far. Afraid of foreign women? I've not heard that before. Most single Thai men would love a foreign wife, as long as she has money! I've been reading over your blog and yours is about the only one I've come across that seems genuine and written with real insight and intelligence. I'm going to check out a couple of these Thai dating sites for my upcoming holiday as I don't really like the bar scene.
If you don't mind I'll drop you an email to ask a couple of more personal questions rather than posting them here. Sure, I'll do my best to answer them. All the best with your trip. Thanks for your reply by email. I did reply back but not sure you got it so posting here. The best Thai dating site in my opinion is defo Thaicupid. I've met a girl on there and we've been in touch now for 3 weeks.
Hoping to visit in the summer. An update on this: I reported it to both customer service at TLL and security. Neither replied, and the 'girl' is still a member, presumably catching other guys out. Worse still I've just been through exactly the same procedure with another 'girl'. To avoid this happening to you: It's a jungle out there chaps. Basically Truly Thai are posting profiles on other sites in a bid to lure guys over to their site and pay a subscription.
Heard back from TC and TF, both of whom are aware of this and are looking into what they can do to stop it. One simple rule is not to be lured off site! Hi, I have just visited ThaiCupid which expects you to scan your id as proof. The problem with this is I do not want to give my real name but with id I cannot disguise. What do others feel? Also, I notice all talk is generally for western men.
What Thai women think of Asian men obviously non-Thai? That is to verify your identity and to prevent scammers using the site. I think it's a really good addition because it protects the members. You can still use a screen name, you don't need to show your real name. In terms of Asian men, different strokes for different folks. Many Thai women prefer Asian men over western men and vice versa. Sorry for the late response! During your Research, did you make bad experiances with that site?
I don't actually, except that my Profile got locked one time for unknown reasons. I protested, and they unlocked it. I did research DIA and didn't include it in my list because I started getting spam emails after registering for the free trial. Perhaps I will revisit this option and drop them an email about what happened. I have read online reviews about the Date In Asia type sites and users' experience has been that, once the sites get your credit card number, there is no stopping them from syphoning funds, even when a member wants to discontinue.
I saw a couple of ladies I wanted to contact but was cut off until I paid up. The approach of the site worried me and I gave up. What has your experience been? ThaiCupid is a bonafide site if you're looking for decent women. Of course, like all dating sites you're going to get some fakers and some nutters, but that goes for men too and the women have to be careful. I've been on there coming up 6 months and met a number of potential long-term suitors and had a few dates, all of which were pleasant and one lady I have continued to see.
Out of the bunch it seems the one that cares the most about security and confidentiality, which in this day and age when joining a website is very important. Stay away from Truly Thai.
Dating sites phuket
It's a fake websites that steals pictures from FB etc. I know this as I knew some of the girls on there and asked if they had profiles on there. The website obviously uses them to get guys to pay the membership. I have reviewed a lot of those type of sites when doing my research. Thanks for reporting that. First off, thanks for the article. Made it really easy to get started! I have to say, after comparing the "talent" on ThaiCupid and ThaiFriendly, the size of the user database isn't really a plus on ThaiCupid.
I'm struggling to find even a few decent looking girls who are using ThaiCupid recently, and I'm getting loads of messages from girls that I'm not remotely attracted to. I'd say the interest I'm getting is more annoying than useful so far. ThaiFriendly seems to have a lot more ladyboys, which is not really my thing, but there are tons of downright gorgeous real girls using the site regularly. The main downside is there is no profile info for English language ability, and the search is a bit limited past age, height, and location.
I'm a picky guy regarding looks, so take it with a grain of salt, but I think the users are much more appropriate on ThaiFriendly for younger westerners who are used to dating attractive young girls. I take your point, but TF seems to have more "freelance" type women on there.
If you are looking for something a bit more serious with a woman within 10 years of your age, who is more independent - own job, own money - ThaiCupid is a better choice IMO. Is there a site where i could find women who are interested in dating with a man with the intention to go and live with the man in his country.
Hi Henk, I think your best bet would be Thai Cupid. That said, I'm sure many women would be open to this option if the relationship progressed to the point where such a decision needed to be made.
Don't judge a Thai lady by her pics. Many ladies are just confident with their bodies or think they're being sexy also playful. Doesn't automatically mean they looking for casual relationship or a bar girl. Educated career ladies like to let loose occasionally to. Great point Dalca, I missed that feature but I'll add it into my review.
You're totally right about the pictures. Just because a Thai woman has a playful picture on a dating site doesn't mean she is a "working girl". We should all try be open-minded and non-judgemental, but with so much negative stereotyping going on sometimes it's hard to control your thoughts. I signed up for ThaiFriendly about a month ago.
I've met a lot of nice ladies looking for something real. Most of these have contacted me, as opposed to the other way around. So if you want to find quality women looking for a real relationship, you can certainly do that at this site.
A couple weeks in I had to change my profile to show me as always being "offline", because too many women were contacting me not a problem I've ever had using Match. So, it's really not too difficult to look and choose the type of women you are interested in, in my opinion anyway.
And also, I must say I am stunned every time I go into the site with the beauty of these Thai women. Even if I see a profile and know she wouldn't be for me I'm a laid-back guy , or she looks like a bar-girl type, I still can't help looking at the photos.
So many stunning women and I'm short, so it's like they are all custom-made for me lol! I think it's a good site, Joe. It has been around a while now so it has a solid membership base with a lot of female profiles. That said, ThaiCupid has far less Ladyboys and bar girls, if any at all, and a lot of educated women with good English speaking skills. I am a Good respectable Attractive Thai woman, Where can I find a good decent white male who's truly wants long lasting loving relationship.
I have tried some of these sites But I found None. Would like to try again, I am always at home. Hi Skylar, I think the main problem is that most foreign guys come to Thailand for a single life and don't want to get tied down, especially the younger guys in their 20s and 30s. Most guys are trying to escape the "married life" expected of them back home.
That said, many guys do get tired of late nights and beer after a while and end up finding a girlfriend, and then there are guys who don't like to sleep around and are looking for something more meaningful.
I also think online dating in Thailand is the same as it is in any other country; very hit and miss, and takes a good while and a good number of dates before you find someone suitable.
Stay positive, I'm sure Mr Right is out there. By the way i am from india. Do you know truly thai? Is it serious website? Yes, these are serious websites. The top three I have tested thoroughly.Thai Online Dating
