Online dating websites are a great place for meeting Thai girls. Almost everyone in Thailand has a mobile smart-phone and is on the internet and there are many active ladies on Thai dating sites eagerly looking to find a partner.
The Best Thailand Dating Websites
The most popular dating websites in Thailand are ThaiCupid and ThaiFriendly. ThaiCupid requires you to be a paid member in order to be able to read messages from the other members. Although messages can be sent from either party, at least one has to be a paid member for either party to be able to read them. Otherwise they are blurred out. And attempting to slip any contact details into your free profile will get you banned from the site and your profile removed. Although you can just make a new profile with a different email address.
ThaiFriendly has limited free communication options for everyone but also has an unlimited paid option. The limited option only allows you to send one message every fifteen minutes. You can test drive both sites and set up a profile for free.
You can make your decision as to which one you like better but I have had the best results using ThaiCupid.
My theory is ThaiFriendly is a little more difficult because most people use the free option and every cheapskate guy that won’t pay to be on a dating website is on it and that equals a lot more competition. And believe me, there is a lot of competition on there.
Some of the very attractive girls on Thaifriendly get up to 100 messages every day so that alone can make your message very difficult to stand out from all the others.
I’m not sure how the Thai girls view it but my theory has always been that if someone is paying to be on a dating website then they are probably much more serious about meeting someone than someone who is not.
Also, there are many pay for play girls on Thaifriendly as it is an easy and free option for them to get “hookups.”
Why Use a Dating Website to Meet Thai Girls?
The answer to this is simple. It’s because you can see exactly what everyone is looking for. Is she looking for marriage only?…maybe you just want to date.. what is her job?.. does she want a long-term relationship?..a one night stand?. Does she have kids or does she want kids? It’s all right there.
It’s not like going to the bar or a nightclub and wondering if that oh so attractive girl sitting across from you or up at the bar is married or not…or maybe she’s not even interested in meeting someone new. When you are looking at profiles on a dating website you will see and know exactly who and what everyone is looking for.
And that’s of course, only if she is completely honest…even if she isn’t…she’s on a dating website to meet someone and you are too. You sometimes have to take things you read on a dating website profile with a grain of salt.
How to Make Your Profile on a Thai Dating Website
First and foremost, it’s important that you have a picture on your profile. 3 or 4 pictures is even better. It’s not likely that you are going to get much attention without at least one. Use pictures with the biggest and most lovable looking smile that you can master.
Second…keep what you write in your profile to a minimum. Maybe 2 or 3 lines max. Just enough to describe what you like to do and what you are looking for. Most women in Thailand are not going to be interested in reading a book and especially in a language that they don’t completely understand.
Many of them don’t even read your profile and just send “interest” after only seeing your picture. You get notifications as to who has actually viewed your profile.
As you can see in the picture above, there’s 409 unread messages after about one month on ThaiCupid with a free profile so there are many to choose from after I decide to purchase a paid membership for a month.
Start with a free profile at first. Sort of a test run to figure everything out on the website and occasionally rotating your pictures to see which one works the best for you. Only one of your pictures is shown as she is browsing the dating website until she clicks on your profile.
How To Make Contact With Girls On A Thai Dating Website
After a short time, you should start getting some traffic on your profile. You will be able to see who has viewed your profile because she liked your picture when she saw it and wanted to see more.
Some will send you interest and some will waste no time and send you a message. Some Thai girls can be a little shy at first and many are the complete opposite.
From the ones that have viewed your profile, sent you interest or sent you a message, narrow it down to 2 or 3 that you like and send them a message. Again, you want to keep it brief.
You should install the smartphone app “Line” and in your first or second message, give her yours or ask for her Line ID name and continue your communication with this phone app. I’ve found that normally if you ask for her Line ID
It is by far the most popular chatting app in Thailand and they all use it. It’s free and has a video calling option too, although I’ve found that video calling with Line can often be laggy and even within Thailand, making Skype a better option for video calls. They mostly all use Skype as well.
The thing I like best about Line is you can see when someone has viewed your message.
Something short and sweet such as… Hi, my name is _____ I like you and I want to know you more… Any more than that and you are wasting your time.
You can ask their Line ID in your first message too if you want and they will often give it to you right away. So if you’re interested in chatting immediately… Hi, my name is ____ I like you and want to know you more. You have Line?
I have found it works best to message the ones that have in some way made the first move. There is often many to chose from and you at least already know that she is interested in you. If you have nice pictures you will get a lot of attention.
Sometimes they don’t get back to you. Don’t get heartbroken as she may have connected with someone else. Just try again with a different one. Occasionally it can take a while before they get back to you as some will be using the internet at an internet café or somewhere that has free wireless.
When it’s the weekend in Thailand is by far the best time and especially on Saturdays for some reason, but generally mornings and evenings any day (Thailand time) are the best times to be online and have other members viewing your profile and sending you interest or on-site messages. Profiles that are online are always shown before the ones that are offline on both sites.
That’s it…that’s all you have to do. Good Luck!
