Bangkok Podcast 41: Thai Online Dating

Continuing with our month of loooooove, this episode of Bangkok Podcast deals with the risks and rewards of online dating. Only ten years ago, meeting someone online was considered a bit of a nerdy way to find a mate, but today, it’s almost considered strange to meet people in real life. Add to that the stereotypes and gossip of finding love in Thailand, and it can quickly become a bit complicated.

To see what all the fuss about, Tony went and signed up for a few dating services to find out what kind of attention his profile would get. He talks about which sites he chose, how each one works, what types of response he got and, more importantly, from what types of women. Greg… well, if you listen to the show on a regular basis, you’ll know that due to his upcoming nuptials, Greg had to sit this one out and live vicariously through Tony.

    Good review about dating sites. I think “new member” are promoted on some of the sites. Therefor you can get a lot of mail the first period. I tried before I went to Bangkok my first time. It was very easy to get in contact with womens on that site. I meet some of them in BKK. That was great since I did know anyone there.

      I agree with that. I noticed that I got a lot of interest early on but as the month went on it died down.

    okcupid is pretty good from the way the site is designed. probably one of the best matching algos i came across. there is some thai folks there so it’s worth to check it out cause it’s free.

    Love the podcast idea, will link to yours from from blog – always looking for useful content.

    As mentioned above, I’ve found new members always get notice on the dating sites first and then the interest fades somewhat.

    Don’t forget – its the biggest free Thai dating site right now, with TLL being the biggest paid one.
