Ladies of the night usually have a reasonable command of English (or “barglish” as it’s called) yet no education past the age of 15 to justify it.
You should make sure you’re well informed before you start out, not just about the types of women you’re likely to come across, but also the legitimacy of the site: how many members are on board, how active the site is, the membership model, and the level of customer service. This is now the preferred way to meet women, and in many respects it's better than nightclubs, bars and personal introductions, which can often turn into a nightmare.
It’s not just those looking for a relationship that can benefit from Thai dating sites, either.
The last thing you want is to end up dating a woman who is solely seeking financial support for her family, and isn’t genuinely interested in what you’re looking for.
Start off on the right foot and seek a woman that shares your interests, values and intentions.
There has been a rise in the popularity and number of Thai dating sites in the last two years, the majority, unsurprisingly, centered on western men meeting Thai women.
Whether this is because Thai women are increasing in popularity, or whether they are becoming increasingly web savvy, isn't clear. It's a great thing though, and many fruitful relationships materialise through this way of meeting.
You may be able to identify such women by their working hours, or the fact that they say they don’t work yet still had the cash to sign up for a premium membership.
Be aware that many of these girls are serial daters, and probably have a man in every port, so to speak.
Operated by Cupidmedia, a company that owns many other dating sites in a broad range of ethnic niches, TC is probably the most well known dating site for foreign men seeking Thai women.
If you want a broad selection of genuine women with a decent job, 21-40 years old, this site is a good place to begin.
