How Foreign Guys Should Date in Thailand

How hard is it to date and find love in the Land of Smiles?

There are a lot of men all over the world who would like to date in Thailand. They want to meet gorgeous Thai women, go out with them, and then hopefully marry them. But it’s that last part that really sticks out and makes them hesitant to go out to meet a Thai girlfriend.

A lot of guys are worried that they’ll go to Thailand, meet beautiful Thai women, but they won’t have enough time to get to know them well enough to foster a relationship that ends with marriage.

That’s a perfectly valid concern. After all, most people travel to other countries for a limited amount of time only and it takes quite a bit of it, around 5 dates or so, for them to determine whether or not they want to date someone exclusively.

“The longer you date, the better,” that’s what our matchmakers have to say. Some might think 14 dates is a bit of a stretch, but the reality is that you can’t jump into marriage just like that. “You might have a good chemistry, jump into your marriage, and then there’s nothing there,” they continued.

Two of the agency’s matchmakers, Anna and Dina, make a point that even if two people fall in love, it doesn’t mean that they’re entirely compatible — especially in the case of foreign men who date in Thailand. This is because a couple has to be able to live in one person’s country.

This doesn’t just mean getting through all the hassles with immigration—it’s also about not being homesick and being able to acclimate to a new culture.

Our matchmakers also suggest to guys who date in Thailand not get tied down immediately. Until there’s exclusivity established in the relationship, guys should look around a bit so they have a fallback plan in case things don’t work out. That’s how you can make the most of your trip.

Anna and Dina also shared their thoughts about guys thinking about marriage this early in a relationship. “You’ll probably have to go back 2 or 3 times,” talking about the number of times a guy should visit the woman’s country before they can think about marriage.

“Yeah, I’ll say that’s a good number on average. And of course, everybody is different and it’s hard to generalize. Just depends on the person, if you cannot travel to her country, you can always take vacations.”

Foreign men who want to date in Thailand should take 2 or 3 trips to the country to see their partner and her family before deciding whether or not they should take the next step because those trips will help gauge their compatibility as a couple.

More and more western men find themselves not having much luck at home when it comes to dating. So they go places where what they have to offer is valued. For this reason, many westerners find that they need to go and date in Thailand in order to find a bride, but navigating such a relationship isn’t going to be the same as navigating a domestic one. It takes twice the effort and dedication, but the rewards are also twofold.
