Although Thailand is undoubtedly changing, there is still a large group of men who come here in search of love. Most of the time, this involves men traveling from bar to bar, hoping that they can find their dream Thai girlfriend, whom they can maybe take back home with them. However, with the number of Westerners visiting Pattaya declining and the bars becoming appreciably quieter, the girls themselves are exploring new ways to meet up with men. The most popular method seems to be via internet dating apps.
What sites do they use?
Obviously, it depends very much on what the girl is looking for. The ones who are searching for the love of their lives will often use dating sites such as:
- Thai Friendly
- Thai Dating
- Thai Match
- Thai cupid
The reasons for the girls and the men vary, but the one thing that it does give is greater freedom. Many Thai women do not want to be classified as Thai girls, so they get the added confidentiality of only being online. Also, it means that they don’t have to spend time in bars or coffee shops on the off chance that they meet a man. In addition, they can work a “regular” job and keep this part of their lives for weekends. People also tend to forget that Thai women are no different from Europeans. Yes, they do work in banks and own a car and a house with a mortgage. They all want the sane things in life: security and being taken care of. Remember, there is no romance without finance.
