Dating Agencies in Thailand

A new life through dating agencies

Although there is huge availability of women in Thailand, the majority are prostitutes working in bars or on the street. While this is a perfect setup for many male visitors, it’s all a little bit sleazy and you have to pay for it. Thai dating agencies allow access to those regular Thai girls that want to meet foreigners without the relative sleaze of the bar world.

Not all bar girls are bad, of course, but it’s tough to find a good one – as foreigners who have lost everything have found out – plus you don’t know how long they’ve been on the game. Also, many Thai girls working in the bars have Thai boyfriends, or even husbands, and can seamlessly lead double lives. Some of the long-timers are masters at deceit, where keeping a farang (foreigner) hanging on and buying cars and houses is child’s play.

At the other end of the scale to bar girls and Thai dating agencies are the millions of regular Thai girls that are largely inaccessible to foreigners. Thai women are quite conservative and most wouldn’t even think of hooking up with a foreigner even if they could speak English well. A small portion of these girls are available to those who can speak Thai and live in Thailand, and also to a lucky few where Thai girls speak fluent English and have been educated overseas, for example.

The alternative is to sign up to a Thai dating agency, which is perhaps more useful in Thailand than in many other countries. Thai girls that sign up looking for foreigners can usually speak some English and are not overly concerned with mixing with foreign men – there is a stigma in Thailand that any Thai woman with a foreign man must be a prostitute. Ridiculous, but that’s how many think here.

One major caveat with this approach: a large number of Thai girls registered with Thai dating agencies are, in fact, bar girls posing as simple girls not indulging in the bar scene. While there’s nothing morally wrong with this, per se, and they may simply be after a permanent boyfriend, they may also have several other ‘boyfriends’ on the go. You need to take anything mentioned on the dating sites with a pinch of salt and see how meetings transpire.

Meeting horny Thai girls for free:
Many ‘bachelors’ visiting Thailand take the easy way out by visiting girlie bars and go go bars, but there are also regular girls not on the game that are keen on meeting foreigners for a fling. Horny and lonely girls go looking for sex online with visiting or resident Westerners. They aren’t expecting money or a long-term boyfriend and haven’t been with many other men. One of the best places to meet these chicks is Adult Friend Finder, where there are more than 10,000 registered Thai female members.

Bar girls and prostitutes will give themselves away eventually. Many of them are greedy and will have you buy lots of items when out shopping or have several friends who are obviously bar girls. Regular Thai girls do not and, generally, wouldn’t be taking you out to show you off and have you buy them anything and everything. Another giveaway is if they say they’re from Isaan (the poor northeast) as most Thai bar girls come from this region. Although that statement is politically incorrect, it is mostly how it is.

As to the Thai dating agencies, there are many in Thailand and you can sign up any time while here or before you arrive with ease. Some of these sites, such as Adult Friend Finder, have literally thousands of girls in their portfolio from all walks of life and in many age groups. Some are after fun and days out, others companionship, love and possibly even marriage.

They’ll put you in contact with these girls via email or chat and you can see images of each other and check out line of work, hobbies, interests and whatnot. Thai girls love to chat and you may find yourself doing so for hours. Eventually, you’ll want to set up a date, although there’s no pressure to do so from the dating agency – you pay to sign up and can then meet at will. Other agencies are free.

Thai women are no different from Western women on a date in that they like to go to the movies, go out for dinner, or go shopping at the mall. Regular Thai girls will not be as forward as your typical Western girl, however, so expect to take things slow. It’s unlikely you’ll be invited up to their apartment for a coffee off the bat. It does happen, but this would be more akin to the bar girl scenario.

Finally, there’s no guarantee you’ll hit it off with the first girl you meet even after chatting for hours on end. Many people who sign to Thai dating agencies have gone out with loads of women before finding one they’re compatible with. The best thing is both parties get to partially learn about the others’ character beforehand and there is more a chance you’ll hit it off, even find your soul mate or spouse.
