Are Thai Dating Sites a Scam?

There are a lot of Thai dating sites out there on the market. Dozens, if not hundreds. Many want you to put in your credit card, social security number, and bank account number before they even let you browse the galleries of the local Thai girls.

Let’s face it, the sex scene in Thailand is HOT.

The reason for all the Thai dating sites is simple supply and demand. A lot of western guys want to meet Thai women; and a lot of the women want to meet western men. Therefore, everybody is flocking to create a platform to facilitate it (and make a pretty penny off of it).

It’s essential that you understand what you’re getting into when you decide on which dating sites to pursue.

First Off, Tinder

Is the real deal in Thailand, and you’d be silly not to use it. It’s basically free. It’s well worth it to pay the $5 a month for the Plus edition, too. Unlimited swipes, super likes, boost—all of it will come in handy in Thailand and result in Thai girls begging for you to meet them.

Worthless Thai Dating Sites (That Are Legit in the West)

There are some major dating sites often used in America that are branching out to Thailand. I’m not entirely sure if they’re offering free memberships to Thai locals, or what, but seriously—don’t bother.

I’m talking about:

  • eHarmony
  • OurTime (for old people)
  • BeautifulPeople

I could go on, but I won’t. Rubbish. If you’ve seen a TV advertisement for them on American television, cross them off your list as far as Thai dating sites to pursue.

In addition, I wouldn’t bother with these ones (albeit they are free):

  • OkCupid
  • POF
  • Zoosk
  • Badoo

You can use them if you want, it won’t hurt. However, when you take a trip to Thailand—it’s about being EFFICIENT. Maximize your time. Wouldn’t you rather spend your hours thrusting inside of a stunning Thai girl instead of messaging her on the internet?

Other Semi-Legit Sites to Avoid

There are a lot of Asian dating sites out there that we actually recommend here at Life Around Asia, and other sites would have you believe you should sign up to every single one of them in order to have a chance at meeting any Thai women.

Not the case, at all.

Asian Dating, Filipino Cupid, China Cupid, and other sites for neighboring Asian countries are not worth the time. You don’t see me recommending Thai Cupid to meet Kazakh girls, do you? Why would you join a Filipino dating site to meet Thai girls?

It’s not like Thai girls are begging to be exported to the Phils.


There Are So Many Thai Girls, You Have to Niche DOWN

It’s really easy to get caught up in the hoopla of the Thai dating culture. There are so many Thai girls wanting to meet you, suck you, and fuck you—it’s hard to STOP. You just want to keep acquiring more responses and numbers.

But there becomes something I like to call PLAYBOY OVERLOAD.

This means that you get so obsessed with getting the actual leads themselves that you don’t actually…put your dick in them. And what a shame that is. Really though, what’s the point of having a thousand numbers in your phone (totally feasible in Thailand, by the way), if you don’t actually meet up with the girls?


Don’t join every online dating site out there just because you can. It’s a complete waste of time, money, and effort. Instead, concentrate where the hottest and most receptive girls are—which is Tinder and…

Thai Cupid

The holy grail of online dating in Thailand. At a reasonably priced $35 or so for a one-month membership, this is the cream of the crop along with Tinder. One on your smartphone, so you can constantly get pussy-on-the-go, and another at your computer.

Between the two, getting Thai girls is like ordering a pizza.

What makes Thai Cupid the best of the best?

  • Reputable company—they even run the Asian Dating, China Cupid, etc. sites I mentioned before. They’re everywhere, and for good reason.
  • Easy payment with PayPal—again, I don’t like giving any shady Thai dating sites my credit cards or any other information for that matter (albeit Thai Cupid is USA-based).
  • They’ve been around FOREVER—there’s a reason it’s so popular amongst both western men and Thai girls. It’s been around so long, everyone has heard of it and recommends it. It’s always the first result in Google for good reason.
  • Tons of girls—simply put, from Bangkok to Chiang Mai…you’ll never run out of girls.
  • Easy to screen—you want to avoid the Thai bar girls or ladyboys, I know. There’s so many girls, just ask. If they don’t meet your criteria, move on to the next.

When it comes to Thai dating sites, you don’t need to shell out hundreds of bucks. A $5 Tinder membership and a $35 Thai Cupid membership set you up nicely for a month, for a grand total of $40.

Fun fact—that’s less than you’d pay for a cheeseburger in a Scandinavian airport.

There’s absolutely no need whatsoever to invest in one of the crazy expensive $100 dating sites in Thailand. That’s just ludicrous. You could bang 100 hookers for that price. (Kidding). These two websites have done the trick for me in Thailand, and I see no reason to deviate from them when I’ve got as many girls in my bed as I desire.

Best of luck,
