I have got a question for you.

Why are you now a single dad looking to date again?

Thought of some answers?

Okay, with your answers in mind, I’d like to tell you why it is important for you to think about online dating a Thai lady.

Tired Of Western Feminism

There is no longer a balance between men and women in the western world.

It was out of balance towards men, decades ago.

And it’s now out of balance towards women, due to feminism.

Don’t get me wrong here, balance is a good thing.

In Thailand, they have Buddhism to guide their lives.

This lifestyle focuses on more balanced relationships.

If you are a single dad dating again, read and discover why Thailand should be the next destination, at least for a holiday and visit.

Single Dad Respect

Now that I’m living in Bangkok Thailand, I have rediscovered mutual respect with all people.

This is far more important in the Internet dating and real-life dating area because Thai women view older guys with a high degree of respect.

They are gentle and soft both physically and in their nature which really is how woman should be. With the man to protect and look after their lady.

Meet Rapid Dating

It is now time to step it up a notch.

You don't need to spend a long time to know one woman at a time, as is the case a conventional physical meeting.

Online dating allows you to make friends and chat with many girls at once!

Just sign up, become a free member and search for Thai ladies that you find interesting.

Start chatting to discover who might be a good match for you.

Family Values

As an expat single guy, I know you recognise the value and benefit in family values.

Thailand has strong foundations in the support of the family unit.

That’s good for Single Dads like you, right?

A example of that is that, culturally in Thailand, children support their parents and their parents support their parents.

Relationship Waiting And Why

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread

Many people are poor in Thailand.

When you meet a Thai woman, you may get a sense that they are rushing into a relationship with you.

That may simply be because they are poor and are looking to get out of that predicament. And that’s easy to understand given the population numbers.

But a word of caution here.

As a man looking to date and find true love and romance with a Thai woman, it is important for you to take things at a steady and cautious place.

We would suggest once you have chosen a Thai girl that you put the decent amount of time into making sure that lady actually is the right Thai woman for you.

As a benchmark, try a 12-24 month period of time for that magic to happen.

If you’ve had any failed relationships in your past then you will know that time is a factor in determining compatibility.

And a waiting period is good for the lady too.

You both need to understand the reasoning behind this waiting period.

Make sure she understands that it is in her interests as well.

She certainly would not want to get into a relationship and have it fail and the guy (you) leave.

That is bad for her and her family.

Compatibility is important - wait for it to happen

Be Careful Of Dating Scammers

There will always be people out to make a quick buck.

Internet dating is no different.

Thailand is a poor country with a big population.

There will always be a % of online girls who will seek you out, to gain some financial benefit.

This is simply another area that you need to be aware of.

Be alert and keep on your guard.

Dating online is perfectly safe, providing you keep the concept of dating scammers in your mind.

The majority of profiles you connect with will be genuine.

Try Before You Buy

Never ever feel pressured to becoming exclusive with one Thai woman when you're at an early dating phase.

Think of this as the warranty period.

Every aspect of both of your lives needs to have high compatibility.

Both you and your lady need to be mentally, sexually, physically and spiritually compatible.

If any of those areas do not find common ground, enjoyment and a whole lot of fun then that relationship shouldn’t continue. The probability to fail is high.

Differences in culture

When I first moved to Thailand, I previously spent 50 or so years in Australia.

So moving to Thailand could have been a culture shock – could have been.

Before moving to any other country, you need to adopt a different mindset. One where you need to 'go with the flow'.

Acceptance and learning.

Thailand has beautiful customs, wonderful culture and people.

I would challenge anyone from anywhere in the world to not love this place, providing you had an open mind and accept the country for what it is and its value to you, as a single dad or a western guy getting back on the dating bandwagon.

The differences in culture and customs are one of the pleasures of coming to Thailand.

There is enough in Thailand to keep you going and happy for the rest of your days.

But it takes a first step and that is often the most challenging.

If you are the slightest bit tired of how Western women behave then you need to make an action plan to first visit Thailand and discover the beauty of Thai women looking for the same as you.
