Thai women are regarded as some of the most beautiful women in the world, it’s easy to see why so many men pursue them! I’m no exception and have compiled a few tips I picked up when dating different Thai women. If you’re looking to start dating a Thai woman or just looking to improve your chances of success, try out the following and you might be surprised by the results!
Be sure to wash and shave when meeting your Thai date. Like many women on a first date, Thai women judge by first impression so turning up looking scruffy definitely won’t score you any points. Be sure to dress decent and a mild cologne or aftershave wouldn’t hurt. If you show a woman you make an effort to look good, then that shows her you’ll make an effort in the relationship.
Be a Gentleman
Thai culture focuses a lot on tradition. Make sure you’re always courteous and polite on your date, it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. Buy your Thai date a small but thoughtful gift, which she will definitely appreciate. In a pinch, a simple flower will work and she’ll be delighted! At end of the night don’t say you’ll call her if you don’t mean it. Your date will find this very offensive especially if she likes you. If do not plan on seeing her again, end the night with a simple good night or “nice meeting you” and she’ll more than likely get the message.
Be Respectful of Thai Culture
Continuing on the above, most Thais are very religious and have deep spiritual beliefs. Without going into too much detail, it’s never a good idea to touch a Thai person’s head, touch them with your feet or grab/gesture to anything with your feet. Avoid any unintended insult or avoid negative comments about country. If you’re not sure she’ll be offended by what you’re about to say, best not say anything. Thais are very proud of their country and do not take derogatory comments lightly. Watch your attitude toward her too, your might get offended by seemingly playful teasing especially if it’s during the beginning of your relationship.
Avoid Public Displays of Affection
It might be normal in your country to see a couple making out in the corner, but in Thailand it’s very much frowned upon. It’s not uncommon for a Thai girl to shower you with affection in the privacy of your own home and refuse a simple kiss on the street. This doesn’t mean she doesn’t like you, it’s just Thai culture. A bit of hand holding outside is tolerated but not much else, especially on the first few dates. Plan your good night kiss carefully. Watch her body language carefully throughout the night and if your date rejects the kiss don’t force it. Again this doesn’t mean that she doesn’t like you but simply a case of “the wrong place at the wrong time”.
Just because she doesn’t respond, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t like you! Most Thai women prefer traditional courtships and like to take it slow.
Be On Time
Don’t be late, simple. This gives Thai women a bad impression and will make your date think you don’t care enough about her to bother showing up on time. You could show up early but not too early as your date might be putting on her makeup or getting ready and Thai women very sensitive about their looks, especially on the first date.
Thai girls are usually timid and shy on the first few dates; don’t act “pushy”. Repeatedly trying to kiss or hold hands will make her feel uncomfortable. Just because she doesn’t respond, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t like you! Most Thai women prefer traditional courtships and like to take it slow.
Plan Your Date
Thai women like to feel special. Avoid bars or clubs on your first date, these show little effort and will not impress the girl and might make her feel cheap and worthless. It all depends on the woman’s background – don’t take her to places she might feel uncomfortable or dislike. For example, a classy upper end Bangkok lady might prefer a fancy restaurant to a walking fair. In turn, a woman who shows up to the date dressed casually might feel awkward in fine dining restaurant. Don’t feel ashamed to discuss and plan date in advance, it’s better to be sure she’s comfortable with the location rather than never seeing her again.
Learn About Your Date
Try and remember things she’s already mentioned or stuff you’ve already talked about. If nothing, you can ask your lovely lady questions about herself and things she is interested in. Avoid talking about sensitive topics like past relationships or boyfriends and pay attention and respond appropriately to whatever she has to say. When conversing with your date be sure to remember English might not be her first language, so be sure to be patient and avoid constantly correcting any mistakes.
Pay for the Date
Most girls appreciate if you pay for the first date. Some might insist on paying half or at least some. If this is the case, let them. Thai women are becoming more successful and financially independent and they like to show it. It’s always a good idea to let the girl know in advance that you’ll be paying for the date. If it goes well she’ll offer to pay for the next one!
Your date is probably just as nervous as you are, if not more! Make sure to make the girl aware that she can relax and act herself too. Most Thai women will not expect much from the first date, but it’s important to appear genuine, and not expect too much yourself either. Absorb the moment, relish in it and play it by ear.
The above are just a few tips for dating Thai women. Follow them and they’re sure to help you on your way to a long and fulfilling relationship with your lovely Thai girlfriend!
