There are so many great Thai dating sites out there on the market these days. You can be halfway across the world and still meet dozens of sexy Thai girls online. There’s no reason you won’t be able to find one and meet you at the airport.
Is that a good idea? It depends…
When you’re an international playboy, you want to get that first bang in a new city or country out of the way as soon as possible. If you’re able to do that within hours of landing—you’re more likely to have a more enjoyable rest of your trip.
Is it safe to do that?
Yes, in most cases.
I’ve had great success doing this. I simply tell her what time to meet me at the airport, and to hold one of those cool signs with my names on it. I make sure I don’t get into a taxi or anything with her—there are some crazy girls out there preying on tourists. I make sure I can take public transit, and have her take it with me. I use this time to screen her out and look for any potential red flags.
If I have green lights, I simply invite her up to the apartment after. I unpack a bit, take a shower—and sex follows. Every. Single. Time.
Assuming you use some common sense, it’s a perfectly safe, reasonable, and fun option to have a girl from a Thai dating site meet you at the airport.
So, it’s now 2017.
Online dating is truly all the rage these days. Nearly every girl in Thailand has used it at some point or another. Naturally, this attracts a lot of players to the market.
When I say players, I mean online dating sites themselves.
Of course, this comes with the usual bullshit. Scamming sites, internet hucksters trying to take your money, and fake profiles and/or ladyboys. Every playboy’s nightmare. Make sure you check those Adam’s Apples…
So, Life Around Asia presents…
The Best Thai Dating Sites in 2017
There are really only a couple of players that are worth your time or money in this market.
This isn’t because there are that many bad sites out there—but simply that the ones mentioned today are so good that you simply don’t need the others. Keep in mind, you don’t need to use every online dating site in existence if you have enough girls and leads in your phone.
Why overwhelm yourself?
These sites I’m about to mention will give you so many leads that it’s basically a waste of time to explore other ones.
#1: Thai Cupid
With over a million members and over a dozen years of experience in the industry, Cupid Media (the owners of Thai Cupid) know how to put together a dating site that has something to offer for everyone. It’s absolutely reasonably priced, too ($30 or so for a one month membership—depending on what currency you’re paying in).
Truthfully, Thai Cupid might be the only online dating site in Thailand you’ll need.
- Thousands of beautiful Thai girls
- Girls are eager and easy to meet
- There are some “good girls” on it if you want something a bit more serious than a one night deal
- Reasonably priced
- The low cost screens out the poor, backpacking traveler types of guys
- It does cost money
- Interface could be updated in some aspects
#2: Thai Friendly
Thai Friendly is another huge player in the online dating market. Like Thai Cupid, they have over a million members.
Is it starting to make sense now why I said you didn’t need to sign up for too many online dating sites to have success with Thai dating? 🙂
Truthfully, these two online dating sites plus Tinder are the only dating sites that I use every time that I travel to Thailand. Any more than that and I’d be spending far too much time messaging girls and not enough time actually having sex with them. A big no-no, and a mistake that a lot of guys make when they are first getting the hang of dating in Asia.
It’s easy to think you’re being productive by having so many messages—but you’d be far more productive to get off the internet and actually meet some of these girls!
Thai Friendly is definitely stocked full of hot girls. It’s also free to send basic messages, but if you want the whole experience you will have to sign up and pay. It’s worth it to do this once in a while. You can get the premium features and get the hottest Thai girls—then you can cancel it and rotate over to Thai Cupid for a month.
That’s generally the attitude I’ll take with websites regarding Thai dating (more on that in a second).
- Free at first
- Millions of profiles
- Good interface that makes it easy to message
- Lack of paywall at first means anyone can join and message
My Thai Dating Strategy
Let’s say I’m going to spend three months in Bangkok. Despite there being millions of members on both Thai Cupid and Thai Friendly, I’ll probably run out of the hottest girls within a month.
Pretend I arrive in Bangkok January 1st. This means I would have signed up for Thai Cupid somewhere around December 15th. I would have paid for one month. I’ll go full-bore on this account until it expires on January 15th.
At that point, I’ll make sure I’ve messaged all of the hottest girls I wanted to on that website. Once that membership expires, I’ll sign up for a paid version of Thai Friendly. I’ll go balls to the wall on that account for a month, too. Then, come February 15th I’ll let the Thai Friendly membership expire and sign up again for Thai Cupid.
Come March 15th (assuming I’m leaving at the end of the month), I won’t sign up for a new one. At that point, I have so many numbers in my phone from both of these dating sites that there’s simply no point. I have too much to do already.
