One girl says, “You can chat with a Thai man all evening, swap phone numbers and still not be sure if you’re just friends.
They will be sweet and attentive and charming, and you still can’t figure out if it’s just social conventions that make them behave so considerately or if they want to take you for dinner.
If you really like him and want to keep him, show copious amounts of respect for his family – he respects them much more than he lets on.
Says one girl: “If you get to meet his family (he will be eager for this to happen if he likes you), try to be as ‘Thai’ as you can without relinquishing your personality.
Speaking of which, in general try not to wear clothes that are too revealing around him.
Learn some Thai – he’ll really appreciate it and it’ll allow you a much better connection with his friends and family.
One girl dated a hi-so (high society) Thai guy, and she tells us: “Once you break up, they have a rule that they cannot be friends with their ex girlfriends and if they do, they will be really disrespectful to them.” However, that’s not always the case.
Thais tend to offer up the word “love” much quicker than might be expected in the West.
Expect and know this, and judge for yourself on how serious you want to take it.
Dating in Thailand can pay enormous dividends if you are willing to put in the elbow grease and sweat that is required in order to make it work.
You need to have a heavy dose of patience and set aside a large amount of time in order to scan hundreds of profiles and send personalized messages to those people whose profiles appeal to you.
