The current global pandemic has bitten hard into Thailand's tourism industry, which has also affect finding that special Thai lady you want in your life. No foreign tourists entered Thailand between April and September 2020.
But Thai women and ladyboys still have a passion for finding a foreign man - this focus will never stop. Whether they want a new friend, find love, or something quick, foreigners remain on their priority list.
In 2021, Thai women will lower relationship expectations to secure themselves a compatible foreign partner. Thai freelancers are conducting their handheld virus checks but continue to be a high-risk profession.
Thankfully, Thailand is slowly starting to reopen its doors to overseas tourists, as of October 2020.
Thailand expects 8 million foreign tourists to arrive in 2021, followed by 16 million in 2022, 32 million in 2023, and 40 million in 2024 - Finance Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith.
Vaccinations are in advanced development stages, with most of the vaccine trials having a 95% efficacy.
But vaccinations are only the start of how dating is about to change the world over in real life and online.
Update December 23, 2020
Thailand to extend short-stay visas by 15 days, to make up for time spent in quarantine.
Update December 19, 2020
Six golf courses have applied as alternative state quarantine facilities. Enjoy golf while being in quarantine.
Update December 18, 2020
After months of no new local virus cases, there has now been an outbreak at the Samut Sakhon seafood market.
Every country will impose their own set of travel restrictions to provide safeguards for the country's population from outsiders. I'm not here to argue one way or another on health policy or a government's decisions.
But meeting other people must change. And it will.
With a 2020 world population of 7.8 billion, it will take a long time for vaccines to roll out. You'll also see many being unable to get them, being unwilling to take them, and new strains of the virus.
People, in general, are now more wary of their personal space and surrounding.
Airlines are now drawing up their battle-plans for travel. It will become standard practice for everyone to see your Vaccination ID before removing their mask in your company.
Dating will adopt these new habits. It will be common (and sensible) to isolate and protect yourself from the unvaccinated.
More and more people are now turning to internet dating sites for meeting others. We already see trends with guys hooking up and vetting girls and ladyboys. They're wisely 'pipelining' for when they can travel and visit.
2021 will be a fascinating year as countries emerge from lockdowns and start reopening their international visitors' borders. Prepare yourself and start filling up your list with Thai girls (or ladyboys).
2020 has seen widespread unemployment throughout Thailand.
Tourism makes up more than 12% of the country's GDP. Many Thai women became unemployed early this year as hotels, clubs, bars, and associated tourism businesses closed due to a complete lack of incoming tourists.
Many of these unemployed Thai women are single.
Are they likely to want to date an unemployed Thai guy or a more affluent foreign guy? If you hadn't guessed, the answer is the foreigner. Biologically, all women want a partner who can provide for them.
These women aren't scammers. Many are near destitute, with little opportunity to provide for herself, let alone her family.
It is now commonplace on dating sites for Thai women to plead for assistance. We don't suggest you rush in and send any either. Sending money to someone you don't know is asking for trouble.
Thai women will always choose the easy path to short-term wealth creation.
They are sexy, attractive, and skilled in the art of intercourse. As the country opens to more tourists, Thai girls will look towards paying off their accumulated debts by prostituting herself.
Freelancing isn't as easy as you might, and there is significant competition for her.
It's 'gravy train' time, folks!
Supply and demand explain the situation. Add into this mix your status and social standing too. All Asian countries and their population have been stuck hard during this pandemic. Poor people are now more impoverished. They're swimming in debt, unhappy with their lives, and looking for a solution.
That solution is you. Thai girls are increasingly joining foreign dating sites to meet someone suitable for their lives. They already know what they must do for you, no problem. Thai women are gentle, compliant, exceedingly sexy, and understand how to please a man.
She has competition too. All Thai girls know they must try harder to secure themselves a foreign boyfriend.
Visiting foreigners will be in high demand during 2021 - Thai women expect you to provide for them, given their lack of 2020 income. Women in Thailand will need to lower their relationship expectations to enable a quick courtship.
Thai women will need to take any guy who is interested in her.
The ball is now in your court. Start filling your Thai girl (or ladyboy) pipeline and get ready.
You can't blame a girl for wanting to avoid a risk to her life and those of her loved ones.
Covid-19 (to date) has amassed a death toll worldwide of 1.6 million souls from more than 67 million cases. These numbers continue to rise.
All women are sexually cautious. The current pandemic adds an extra layer to her discretion. Its reasonable Thai women should verify every man's intentions (and risk level) before sexual activity.
Think of this new way of life as their Internet Face Mask - she will wear it until she knows you're safe enough. Go with the flow here and make her feel comfortable, and you practice safety.
Freelancers and bar girls in Thailand are in the 'high-risk of infection' categories. Thai sex workers are now using virus scanners when greeting clients. This segment of Thai girls takes more risk since their professions require them to engage in sex with strangers. They come into contact with large numbers of foreigners.
The challenges are:-
Do you even still wear a face mask when you're naked lol?
We recommend Doggie style is the better position. :)
I won't go into the safeguards people need to adopt in the current pandemic - please do regularly check the World Health Organization website.
From a dating perspective, being aware of your surrounding is important. As well as who you are with and contact.
The same as HIV, viruses are invisible dangers. You are unaware who has it, and they're also unaware of your situation.
Please understand a person's reluctance to have a coffee and then quickly go to your condo for sex. In 2021, you will move towards a slower pace.
Don't get me wrong though, Thai women are just as eager as you are when it comes to carnal pleasures. Take things at a slower pace during this strange 2021, and you'll get the rewards you're craving.
As I mentioned earlier, be warier of Thai prostitutes.
Thai freelancers have had their incomes slashed during 2020. Many are homeless and need to work on the street without face masks - as potential clients want to see their faces.
Thai freelancers will be vying for your attention, time, and money. These girls and ladyboys will force meeting you but be lax with taking precautions or virus checks. All foreigners are at a higher risk since Thai freelancers and sex workers are still trying to work throughout this pandemic period.
Find them on a dating site is the safest and wisest process - start your checks and pipelining. We'd advise finding Thai women who aren't involved in the sex industry until 2021 settles down — distributed vaccinations must also be in place.
More areas in Thailand are slowly reopening for business.
The Thai government is trying everything they can to kickstart tourism again but maintain ultimate safety.
As mentioned at the start, Thailand expects 2021 will see 8 million foreign tourists arrive during the year. That's a lot of Thai girls hoping to go on holiday with single foreign men.
Plus, these holiday destinations are holding their breath to welcome you and your Thai girlfriend. These resorts have been the most devastated by Covid-19.
Koh Samui, Pattaya, Phuket, and most other popular holiday spots reel with unemployment and resort/hotel closures throughout 2020. They need your custom, badly.
2021 will be an excellent year for travel throughout Thailand. And an even better year to take your pick of the many attractive and willing Thai girls who haunt dating sites in desperate need of a good guy, even if only for a short time.
It's time to start planning, get your holiday travel in order, and start lining up girls.
Travel visas and requirements are in a continual state of flux as of December 2020.
The country introduced a new Special Tourist Visas for 90-day stays (twice renewable) in October 2020. Thailand is trialing this new visa with only a few 'safe zone' countries such as China.
It is a safe bet there will be an imposed 'no vaccine, no entry' policy for all international travelers wishing access to Thailand, though. The Thai government is deathly opposed to seeing another wave of Covid erupt.
The world still needs a better knowledge of re-infection rates and the proven efficacy of any vaccines deployed and used. It's early days for many details.
One thing is sure - Thailand needs tourists and the money they bring into the country and spend.
Thai girls remain keen for new foreign friends, relationships, and marriage or merely talking with a single foreign man.
With lower expectations, Thai women are just as excited for a short or long term relationship during the 2021 year. You only need to start messaging them to build up your list of potential candidates.
We expect 2021 will be different for dating around the world. Thailand is poised to reopen to the masses. You should be ready to face 2021 with open arms, a big smile, and plenty of Thai girls wanting to meet you.
