I think it is best to start off by addressing the biggest elephant in the room. Now, this is not another case of an in-group bias where I’m praising my own people and culture, for a decade there has been a trend of cases where people traveled halfway across the world to look for a romantic partner in Thailand.
Whether it’s because they are exotic, funny or understanding, there is a reason why travelers want Thai girlfriends.
However, the best part is that you will have a wide selection of dating partners, plus you don’t even have to utter a word.
The problem is this leads to a growth of a huge Thai dating industry where many foreigners got cheated or scammed, leading to horrible marriages and financial devastation.
Now these problems could be prevented at the very early stage, only if you know the best ways to finding and dating Thai girls, it may save you a heartbreak or two.
So knowing the core social circle will give you a window to their lives.
Going the extra mile to meet up to get to know with her friends would give you a bigger social proof in her eyes too.
Biggest mistakes most people make in Thailand is that they fall prey to the tourist traps in Bangkok. When it comes to dating Thai girls, look for other places besides the obvious choices (such as all the party / night life venues).
