Bangkok Podcast 42: Thai Matchmaking

We wrap up our Bangkok Podcast Month of Love with a talk with Khun Bee, owner of Bangkok Matching, Bangkok’s #1 premium marriage matchmaking service. It’s a very different ball of wax from a simple dating site, and in a very interesting conversation, Khun Bee tells us how she got the idea for her business, some of the (often unrealistic) expectations her clients have, and a few of the surprising problems she encounters on a day-to-day basis. We also get an inside track into the sometimes brutal task of finding love – what happens when you want someone out of your league? How do you tell someone that no one’s interested in them? And what happens if a date is a disaster?

And to top it all of – Tony gives us his experiences as a client of Khun Bee’s, and tells us what it was like going on 11 dates over a period of a few weeks, and why he now has the nickname “9-11”.

Greg also talks about his Restaurants of Bangkok Running Dinner experience, and we remind everyone about our upcoming Bangkok bicycle trip on March 13 – head to our Facebook page to sign up!

    One thing I think is worth talking about is all the people who are happy living alone.
    Society seems to not accept that some people (not talking about monks here) actually are happy alone. Such people seem to be thought of as ‘someone who can’t find a someone’.
    In fact many many people are not searching for dates and partners because they have no interest to.

      I think there are both kinds of people. Some who can’t stand the thought of living alone and others who prefer it.

      I personally find the perfect balance with a pet cat! 😉

    Hey, great interview Greg and Tony. interesting and funny. Worth listening to. Suprised to learn that your dates only lasted five minutes Greg, 🙂 but I guess it doesn’t matter any more. Tony’s personal experiences really added a lot. See you on Saturday.

    Hi guys,

    loving your podcasts. Unfortunately the link to podcast #42 “Thai matchmaking” only leads to #43. Could you please fix this error so I can listen to it?

      Thanks for catching that. I’ve fixed the link now.
