You need to take anything mentioned on the dating sites with a pinch of salt and see how meetings transpire.
Many ‘bachelors’ visiting Thailand take the easy way out by visiting girlie bars and go go bars, but there are also regular girls not on the game that are keen on meeting foreigners for a fling.
Although that statement is politically incorrect, it is mostly how it is.
As to the Thai dating agencies, there are many in Thailand and you can sign up any time while here or before you arrive with ease.
There are singles cruises, adults-only cruises, interactive themed cruises, culinary bootcamps and signature event cruises, some with solo cabins, too.
While this is a perfect setup for many male visitors, it’s all a little bit sleazy and you have to pay for it.
A small portion of these girls are available to those who can speak Thai and live in Thailand, and also to a lucky few where Thai girls speak fluent English and have been educated overseas, for example.
The alternative is to sign up to a Thai dating agency, which is perhaps more useful in Thailand than in many other countries.
At the other end of the scale to bar girls and Thai dating agencies are the millions of regular Thai girls that are largely inaccessible to foreigners.
Thai women are quite conservative and most wouldn’t even think of hooking up with a foreigner even if they could speak English well.
