It’s not just those looking for a relationship that can benefit from Thai dating sites, either.

Don’t give out your home phone number or address until you have met the person, or at least Skyped and has a face-to-face conversation.

Like any other single woman, many bar girls – both those having sex for money and those solely working in the entertainment industry as a dancer or hostess – are looking for a partner.

But one thing is for sure, you should be as cautious about the online dating process in Thailand as you would in your own country, and you should make sure you’re well informed before you start out – not just about the types of women you’re likely to come across, but also the size of membership, cost and service of each site. I’ve met many western guys who met their partner on Thai dating sites, and highly recommend this avenue over nightclubs, bars and introductions, which often turn into a nightmare.

I also know many well-educated, professional Thai women active on these sites.

Thai has gained rapid popularity among the expat community and overseas seekers over the last couple of years, growing to a huge 273,000 members.

The site is popular because it caters for a slightly different crowd to Thai Cupid, in that you get younger women, such as uni students, seeking a bit more of a “fun” relationship rather than those of an age where settling down really quick is imperative – I always think approaching dating too seriously can land you in as much hot water as going in too loosely, so to speak.You might be better off looking on something like Adult Friend Finder.You’ll quickly see that on most profiles women state that they are seeking a life partner, soul mate, “good man”, as opposed to a one-night stand.Such women are also likely to have children from previous relationships.For some men this isn’t a problem, and depending on what you’re looking for, you may not mind what a person does for a living, whether they have dependents or other guys in their life.This translates messages for both parties, preventing cross wires and assisting in breaking down the language barrier.
