Thai Dating Sites – How much it costs to join!
It's true what they say, sex in not free! And if you're using online dating sites in Thailand that's especially true. Yes there are free Thai dating sites but you get what you pay for or should I say don't pay for. The biggest supposedly free dating site is Thai friendly but for the most members Thai Love Links is the clear winner.
Members: approx 373,000 (September 2013)
Crowd: Definitely younger crowd
Honestly this isn't my favorite dating site here but lots of guys love it. They say they are free but the drawback is you can only send 1 message every 10 minutes. This can get really annoying especially when a girl answers and doesn't leave her contact details so you can literally sit there spending 2 hours talking to a girl and you've said basically ten things.
The site loads quick and the design is basic but honestly I could care what it looks like (have you ever used craigslist?). As long as they have the members and Thai Friendly is the clear second winner for best dating site in Thailand. The message thing is super annoying so you're best to sign up.
The Cost: 24.95 per month or $99.95 ($8.33/month) per year.
All major credit cards and Paypal are accepted.

Thai Love Links

The great thing about Thai Love Links is that it works and it's polished. The chat thing is still a little shaky but overall the clear winner in dating site usability. Possibly the first dating site in Thailand it boasts the biggest membership more than double it's closest rival.
When you join you can browse profiles for free and interact with other users of the site by sending interest to other users, but in order to contact then via chat, email, message you must pay for a premium membership. There are two levels of membership Gold and Platinum with platinum membership putting you right to the top of the searches giving you the most exposure.
Gold Package Month: ฿ 800 baht
Gold Package Year: ฿ 3,200 baht
Platinum Package Month: ฿ 900 baht
Platinum Package Year: ฿ 3,600 baht

Thai Love Lines
Thai love lines was one of the first dating sites I ever signed up with in Thailand because basically the first month was cheaper. This website isn't as popular as the others but it has been around for a long time and the first competitor to the Thai love links giant. If you live in rural Isaan this might not be the site for you but a larger city there are girls on here that are not on the other sites.
Thai Love lines is a good choice for people who don't like being overwhelmed and don't mind emailing back and forth a while which is why it probably suits the older crowd and the price for the first month is reasonable.
Per Month: $19.99 USD
Per Year: $119.99 USD
All major credit cards and Paypal are accepted. Alternative payment methods are: you can do Thai to Thai bank transfers, pay via Western Union, and even pay by cash (registered post only).

Which Thailand dating site should you join?
There are different benefits between the three sites so it all depends on what you're using them for in fact you could get benefit from all three and for $300 you could get a membership for each one all year. Do you really have that much time though? If you are playing the numbers game then definitely sign up to ThaiLoveLinks or all three at once and start your email campaign. If you like things slower then pick Thai love lines. If you're looking for fun and friends and not so serious then pick Thai Friendly.
well… I’d have to disagree with you there 🙂 I use them prolifically (as do my friends) and we are of one mind :
Thai Friendly is STREAKS ahead of Thai Love Links (which 2/3 years ago was the clear winner). Here’s why:
Fantastic interface which allows going to next ‘unread’ message automatically. TLL you have to shut the page and navigate
and more girls.
I, and my friends, used to get 80% of our dates from TTL but now it’s the other way TF get’s us 80% of our dates and that’s the crucial benchmark.
TTL has lost ground when it had the market sown up purely because it’s less user “friendly” I actually wrote and told them ages ago and NO REPLY of course.
When I have to go through 20 messages just ‘one clicking’ to next ‘unread’ is a Godsend
The other month I joined TLL I had multiple threesomes girls tag teaming each other even a gangbang from TLL. (My friends can attest). Thai Friendly meh all I saw was girls from loi kroh and chicks that hang out at Zoe, Spicy and Hot shot. I agree that Thai Friendly has come leaps and bounds over the past few years and as you pointed out by listening to users gripes and actually making changes. Like I keep saying though the competition on Thai Friendly is greater because of the free messaging. Thai Love Links still has more profiles than TF and more dormant profiles which meaning as soon as those girls break up with their current boyfriend they’ll re-activate the TLL profile. I’m surprised you’re percentages are way different than mine. Although I’m disagreeing with you now by next year if things keep up Thai Friendly will overtake if it hasn’t already TLL. HOWEVER because TLL remains paid only to message it reduces the competition thus making it a better choice (in my mind). But like you and everyone else and what I always say, join all of them!
PS I could not care less how much it costs (I guess some may care) if it gets me quality dates it’s worth every satang 🙂
yes join ALL is best advice 🙂
Hey Chris. I’ve been reading your blog a while. I’ve been on both TLL and TF and I’ve had super good luck with both. I’m 3/6 TF and 4/6 TLL and that includes 2 girls who I’m pretty sure wanted to rob me and one who was not attractive (and one I’m still working on). I met some great girls and got laid really quick w/o money. I even had one girl come from Pathum Thani at her expense 2x to my hotel near Nana. The 2nd time she came at 8am and left at 11am. As she was leaving I mentioned how great that was and she replied “Yeah, like pizza delivery except pussy delivery” I was only her 2nd lover (and I believe her).
Okay but here’s some problems. One, are Thai people in general just stupid or something? I was in Japan working a month ago and I went to Hiroshima and it’s super moving. I have told various Thai people about this and none of them know what it is. Even when I explain about the Atom Bomb, World War 2, Japan – USA, Pearl Harbor, even show pictures on the internet they are like super baffled. And it’s not just this! I think I would have trouble having a gf this dumb. One of them is a teacher too!
The second thing is how super flaky they are. I had another great girl in bBkk that I’m trying to get to come visit me in CM (I mostly live there). She’s like super lovely dovey on whatsup, but then she just flaked out the last couple days — she’s not answering me and I know she’s reading my messages. I got her to come to my hotel room on our 2nd date and she’s a virgin (and she is because she is super tight even 2 fingers inside her and she’s jep jep jep…) but I can’t get her to take a trip with me?
I’m wondering if some of this has something to do with the super shit Thai jobs they all have –something I’m just learning about. My experience in the US is that it’s hard to get the girls in bed but then you can’t get rid of them once you do. Here it’s been the opposite and I’m not dating bar girls or shelling out any Baht.
I’m new to the game so I’d appreciate some advice.
Threw a lot at me there mate but basically a Bachelors Degree here is about the equivalent to a High school diploma, believe it or not most Americans know jack shit about the world either doesn’t make them stupid though, in Thai’s defence they are smarter than we are in many respects but education is pretty bad here if you don’t have the money to pay for it. If you’re after chicks the dumber the better for one night stands and really depends on what you’re looking for as well. If some chick isn’t answering your messages it’s a sign brotha…NEXT…
I did throw a lot at you to be fair, but I’ve been wondering a lot lately… Compare expats in Thailand with expats in Korea or Japan (two countries I have spent a lot of time in). Why do guys chose to come here rather than those two countries? Simple, the girls are dumb and poor.
I’m in Pattaya tonight for the first time. I went out grabbed few beers went to the second place, bought a beer, bought the semi cute Isaan chick sitting across from me a beer. She went to get her beer, brought back her check slip, and couldn’t find the holder with my bill — never brought in the first first place. Suddenly the entire bar is searching for something that never existed. I actually would have stayed, bought more drinks, bar fine ect… but 10 minutes of even having my own bag searched for this brought the night to an early close for me.
I mean lets face it. Thai girls aren’t prettier than Koreans or Japanese. You can just do shit to them you couldn’t do to those girls. They have their own money and wouldn’t put up with it.
My experience with ThaiFriendly is that I get tons if nibbles. Lots of girls interested in chatting, and sending messages back and forth. Lots of phone conversations. But meeting in person? Oh wow, that’s like you’re suggesting something completely insane. Aside from the obvious hookers, who will meet of course on a moment’s notice, most Thai chicks in their early 20’s on dating sites are shy to the point of uselessness. I finally gave up out of frustration.
I can go to a disco in Thailand and pull in about 10 minutes. Or I can waste days chatting with scared little girls on ThaiFriendly. Who knows… Maybe I just suck at the online thing. But the real world is faster, easier and gets better results IMHO.
There isn’t a DAMM thing for FREE in this world; specially P. You don’t believe me speak to Sharky down in PATT 🙂
