Many men are captivated by the beauty and femininity of Thai women. The attraction is obvious to any men who have been to Thailand. If you want to take the plunge and look for a Thai girlfriend, then you will not regret it. There are better ways than others to go about it though. A lot of guys book a ticket to Thailand, fly 14 hours, check in to a hotel and then hit the bars. That's not the smartest way to go about it in my opinion though.
I know several guys who have happy relationships and they met their Thai girlfriend in a bar, but I have seen and heard about many more where it did not turn out well. It's not that the bars are not fun, but there's better ways to about meeting good Thai girls.
The internet revolution has hit Thailand as well. We've gone from ICQ chat to MySpace to Hi5 to Facebook and who knows what next. Thai dating sites now have more than a staggering 1 millions members and that's just the Thai-Foreign oriented websites alone. What does that mean? It means you get the opportunity to meet millions of Thai women with the click of mouse.
There are generally two types of women who sign up for a Thai dating site. Some sign up because they are looking for a financially stable man to settle down with and start a family with. These girls often come from the poorer parts of Thailand and they see little opportunity where they live now. Many men will find a devoted wife in this group, just take it slowly and do not rush. The second type of girl is usually not looking for financial stability but rather social freedom and respect. These are typically girls from Bangkok or other larger cities and they do not feel like Thai men respect them. Infidelity is a major problem with Thai men and educated Thai women often feel like they are not allowed to express themselves.
