Thai Dating Guide

All the Tips, Myths and Misconceptions
to Dating in Thailand

Are you Looking for love in Thailand?

This Thai Dating guide will hopefully validate some of the facts and figures in discovering and uncovering what it really takes in understanding the dating scene in this wonderful land of smiles. We also look at what is to be expected and respected with regards to Thai culture and what would ultimately lead to a successful Thai relationship with one of the most beautiful girls in all the land. It's also a guide to discovering if true romance is very much alive in Thailand. 

Dating in Thailand has such a broad connection because the very subject matter is not always easily defined to any one scenario. For some it's extremely satisfying and rewarding and yet for others there are big disappointments and heartaches. That's the reality of it. Some Thai relationships turn to triumph while others are downright disasters. It's the nature of the beast. But look at it from this prospective - If you should miss the first bus - what the heck, there's another one coming.

And speaking in broad terms, in order for your relationship to move forward at full throttle, it matters not that you have broad shoulders, a broad accent, a broad smile, a broad sense of humour or even the fact that you might be a little broad around the middle. More importantly, you need to have a broad bank balance. These are just some of the facts in trying to understand the whole Thai/Western cultural thing. One thing for sure it matters not how old you are. Age isn't part of the Thai dating scene or for that matter Thai vocabulary.

But there is the small matter of the language difference in Thailand. While it may be rather difficult to understand, it's even more difficult to read. But that shouldn't be of any concern. Also, you may have to take into account that Thailand has an illegal but rampant sex industry which in part is largely ignored. Nobody really even cares. And there's something called a disparate economy and an uncertain democracy. None of which should stop you in your search for the perfect date.

These are some of the many ingredients that make cross cultural relationships a little more complicated when you're trying hard to form a long term relationship with your Thai lover or friend. Then again, you knew that all along or did you not? As they say- No pain, no gain.

For this reason I decided to compile a chapter so that you may understand some of the myths and misconceptions behind Thai Dating and Thai Relationships. I will also try and put the record straight so that you do not fall into the traps that might unfold before you.

Believe it or not when I tell you that there are many, many more disastrous relationships than there are the good ones. It might not be so easy for me to have to tell you this, but the outcome doesn't necessarily end with conclusions you would have wished or hoped for.

I speak from my own personal experiences as well as having read many books discussing the subject. One such book I highly recommend you should read whilst considering any type of a Thai love affair, is a book called Private Dancer by the acclaimed author Stephen Leather.

Of course, I stand to correction when I point out that this book is based on fiction rather than as a true reflection of what might or might not have happened. The images portrayed in the book epitomize actual events and although Steven has this wonderful way of portraying his characters as very real people falling in love but with the surrealist idea of actually being in love.

I did however do some actual research after reading this book. It tells the story of a young British travel writer (not unlike myself) who falls head over heels in love with an erotic dancer at infamous Nana Plaza Entertainment Complex in Bangkok. Therein lies the danger. A must read for anybody who might think that falling in love with a beautiful Thai lady is just a simple walk in the park.

Thai-Western Relationships in Thailand

There are very few, if any, meaningful Thai-Western relationships that materialize into marriage from any of these sometimes unpleasant encounters. Go-Go Bars or any other such similar venues in and around the hot spots of Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket should come with a health warning so my advice to you would be to tread on these waters with extreme caution

I shall attempt to give you a better understanding of some of the pitfalls and temptations that you might encounter as you embark on a  journey of self discovery into this wondrous world of Thai romance and Thai dating. However, if you're serious about how to go about dating, please take a look at some of the links below for additional advice.
