The Thai Woman
Many successful Thai women with good education turn to the West after coming out of failed relationships. Some Thai men, especially wealthy ones, are known to be playboys.
If you are a mature, honest man with good intentions, you will find that Thai women enjoy taking care of their husbands. They will do everything for you, and treat you like a king.
In return, you are expected to take her out sometimes. Thai women like to dress up.
Be generous. Family is very important in Thai culture, and you may be asked to lend some money to her father or sister. Thai women love romance. A sweet word in her ear can work wonders. Thai women are easygoing, like to have fun, and are more independent than other Asian ladies. The Thai woman may come from a conservative culture, but she is tolerant of other religions, and can adapt easily to Western culture.
Two sides to the coin
If you intend to travel to Thailand and date a Thai lady of good character, remember not to be seduced by the charms of the other side: the cute, sexy bar girls who will flatter you and tell you what a handsome man you are.
They are working for money. Many bar girls come from the poorer regions, and they work in the big city like Bangkok or tourist area to support their families. To find a proper Thai girl, you should look elsewhere. You can find many well educated Thai women with good careers on Thai dating websites.
How to tell the difference between a bar girl who wants your money and a proper Thai girl with sincere intentions? Asian culture expects a cool heart on first meeting. Don’t show too much affection. The real Thai lady may be embarrassed by the Western man who wants to give her a big hug at the airport. Most Asian ladies are modest and shy until they get to know you. You can flatter her on her beauty but don’t go overboard with kisses and hugs.
Learn the culture
You can impress a Thai woman by investing some time in learning her language and culture. Thais love a man who can speak even a few words of the cryptic Thai language. The Thai people like to inject fun in everything they do. There are festivals every month, and workers get time off to celebrate. The easygoing nature and surface harmony you will see comes from their Buddhist culture. I have never seen a Thai raise their voice, even in the congested, smog-filled streets of Bangkok where traffic is jammed for miles.
Start your journey
Start out by joining a Thai dating website. There are quite a few, ranging from small niche sites, to ones with hundreds of thousands of members. Though many are free, it may be better to use one that charges a fee, because there will be less scammers to sift through. The prices are quite modest considering the benefits you will reap if you find the right person.
As a world traveler fortunate to have lived in Thailand, I have been married to a Thai woman for five years. We met online and got to know each other. We live in the U.S. and may move to Khon Kaen when I retire.
