You Know It's True - Really?

We recently surveyed 100 Thai women on our site, on a variety of areas.

We were particularly interested in why they joined an online dating website so we could provide better features and functionality to both our male and female members.

We were surprised by the results!

In a Nutshell - What Thai Women Want%
Don't Demonstrate You're a Cheap Guy92%
Don't send 'Dick Pics'90%
They Want to Know They're Safe89%
Don't Talk to them about Sex Online85%

Have you wondered why you aren't successful in hooking up with Thai women?

These girls are more discerning than you imagine.

Why would you think money, safety, sex-talk and respect plays such an essential role in a Thai woman joining a dating website?

Thai women are the victims of online romance scams, fraud and fake personas. Women in Thailand join online dating sites in search of a stable lifestyle, long-term relationship and financial health. Membership upgrades provide proof of financial capacity, trust and identity.

You Think It's a Man's Age or Looks - It Isn't

On western-world online dating websites, women use the site as a screening mechanism on who they find physically attractive.

As it turns out, 92% of the Thai women we surveyed joined to screen out cheap men.

Yes, you heard that right, their prime focus is to weed out stingy guys.

We were intrigued, but it fits the dating of mixed cultures perfectly.

Please take into consideration that Thai women know that they're targets for the lustful eyes of Western guys. (Well, aren't all women in the world, really?)

All women know that a sexual encounter is inevitable when they meet the right guy. Still, they also want to make sure they have a friendly and pleasant time before that happens.

You know, dinner and dancing, kind of thing - Get it?

Thai food is cheap. Don't let the man be.

Get The Girl From Anywhere

Foreign men covet Thai girls. They know it.

Nearly all the 100 girls we surveyed had first tried well known free sites like Craigslist.

It was a learning experience for them.

For the majority of the girls, ‘they got what they paid for'.

Our surveyed women only found men of little value or substance.

These Craigslist type sites have got cheap guys who want everything for free.

Comments from our surveyed ladies include (we tidied up the translation):

  • they didn't want to spend money on anything – men develop this character flaw from free sites
  • they wanted sex, upfront (which is never going to happen)
  • these men are used to free stuff, and they are disrespectful to me (Say good-bye to the girl if you do this)

92% of our surveyed women know if a guy can't or won't afford less than $2 a week to start messaging them, then they are the types of guys the ladies do not want to date.

Who They're Talking To

The 2nd most significant area, from 89% of the ladies is with online safety.

If a guy couldn't make an effort in having at least one photo uploaded, most women aren't bothered in looking any further into who this guy is.

Remember: Everyone in the world looks at a person's face when communication is about to start.

As a man, you're expecting to see a woman's profile pictures and the ladies are no different.

Profile pictures ARE essential!

It's About The Inside That Counts Most

Thai women are predominantly Buddhists.

100% of our surveyed ladies were.

The outside is merely a shell, of the real person on the inside.

It's also true of Asian cultures that older people have more stability, in life and earn higher levels of respect.

You'll see much much older guys often accompany younger Thai women.

The girls are more interested in the inner man, and the outer appearance is often far less significant, in their eyes.

Why do you think older Western guys make a home for themselves in Thailand and have younger Thai women as partners?

A Common Scenario for Thai Women

Our follow-up questions uncovered patterns most Thai women experienced.

She would join, complete her profile and describe the guy she wants. Adding several photos of herself completed her online profile.

The next step for a Thai woman is to scan through the photos of guys. She will send Interest 'Likes' and message greetings to at least four men.

Women from Thailand become bored quickly. She'll log-out, eat food and wait for message replies.

As an example, two of the four men she messaged have upgraded memberships.

All four men reply.

The paid men start the conversation process slowly. They're serious about finding the right Thai girl.

The free members fire back contact details, with no hint of greeting. Sadly, their messages are blocked.

So who wins here?

The girl continues with the two paid members because the conversation is friendly. All messages between the two of them are uncomplicated. She'll decide which of the two better suits her lifestyle.

That's the beginnings of something special for her.

All the surveyed Thai women prefer men who can afford the minor cost of full unfettered messaging.

The Wrap-up?

  • Understand the importance of a paid membership and how a Thai woman views its' importance on an online dating website.
  • Don't continue being a cheapskate and start with an abundance mindset
  • Profile pictures – profile pictures – profile pictures!
  • Older guys in Thailand have everything going for them if you understand the above survey results and do a little bit of planning. You'll get the girls and all the trimmings.
