Doesn’t it seem that each day more and more Thai dating sites are popping up on the web. To be honest I get more than a few tell me about their site and ask me for advertising. I’m not about to promote something that I wouldn’t use myself. As you know I’m a huge proponent of Thai Love Links and still to this day believe it’s the biggest and baddest Thai dating site on the planet.
Some of you probably won’t agree with my statement and are staunch advocates of Thai Friendly. Thai Friendly has a great website, yeah doesn’t look real slick but it works and if you aren’t trying to spam the web it can work well. But the problem with Thai Friendly is the fact that it’s called Thai Friendly.
Thai’s are very direct with their speech “You’re fat” or “eat food” replaces the way we speak which might sound more like “looking a little chubby these days” and “Let’s have something to eat”. If you name the site “Friendly” it implies to a Thai that it’s for friends. How many times have you talked to a girl who has a boyfriend and is just looking for friends or the university girl that just wants to “talk”. I’m sorry but I don’t need a dating site to make friends I need a dating site to find my next teen bride, girlfriend, of love buddy.
This is exactly why I’m now promoting Thai For Love because I’ve asked hundreds of girls out of which website names would you rather sign up to most of them say they are looking for love and would sign up to Thai For Love.
I contacted the owner of the site Rob this is what he has to say:
Well, there’s nothing more annoying then getting replies on a Thai dating site like, “I’m just looking for friends,” or “I’m currently in a relationship with the most wonderful guy.” Well then, why are you here on what everyone knows is a dating site?!
My primary aim (and this is always a work in progress) is to minimize the steps needed to get to the intended end result. Usually, that’s a date. Whatever happens after that is something that we try to stay out of, but our goal is to get the members together as efficiently as possible. Thus, we have things like a Skype chat option built into the system so you don’t have to ask a Thai girl 3-4 times for her Skype address.
Everyone automatically gets 5 messages a day, they don’t have to wait between messages, and users who upgrade get tons of additional advantages. In that sense, it’s all about efficiency. We’re always looking to update TFL depending on what the members want, so any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thai For Love already has tens of thousands of users far cry from Thai Love Links the current leader but the website shows lots of promise provided Rob continues to improve the site with regular updates.
