“Never judge a book by its cover”, it’s a nice idea however the reality is, a good first impression is THE MOST important part of online Thai dating
The statistics are in, having a quality profile picture increases engagement by over 80%. Taking the perfect profile picture is an art and here’s a few tips and things to avoid.
Buy or borrow a quality camera. A quality camera is going to bring out the colours, contrasts and textures of an image. When uploading your profile picture make sure you don’t compress too much!!!
Background and lighting. Choose a background that is quiet and emphasizes YOU, don’t have a picture of you climbing, or skydiving, these are gallery images! Don’t include your friends in your profile picture, especially any girl friends! A good camera will help with light levels, but make sure you’re in a well lit space to bring out the best in your camera.
Dress Politely. You don’t need to don a tuxedo, a nice shirt? Yes. Pretty simple, don’t dress like a slob!
Have a genuine smile. Some people can fake a genuine smile, if you can’t get your friends to make you laugh!
Use photoshop. Got acne? There’s no harm in using photoshop to edit it out!
Don’t be needy
Just don’t do it, even if you are. There are literally thousands of hot Thai girls online.
When you act needy you’re giving off two red flags. Firstly, no quality Thai girl wants someone who has to message them every 5 minutes, or receiving missed calls when you only spoke the day before. Secondly, you’re limiting the number of Thai girls you can speak, meet and date with.
OkThaiLove encourages an approach whereby you get to meet thousands of hot Thai girls, there’s no need to act needy, play it cool! Send the girls you like a few messages per day!
Checking Their Social Media
If after a few messages you’re trying to find the hot Thai girls facebook, instragram or twitter accounts, chill out! You’ve probably gone a little bit too far.
The hard truth is if you’re feeling the need to check their social media, it’s probably because you suspect them of being untruthful. If that’s the case, do yourself a favor and move on!
Remember to relax and take it slow. There’s no need to put all your eggs in one basket. There’s no harm in setting up multiple dates with hot Thai girls!
Of course… at some point they will add you as a friend on their social media, probably after a few dates and who knows, you might be considering calling the special lady your “girlfriend”. I don’t think anyone would blame you if you took a look at this point but speak with her first, ask her for the truth!
Meet In A Safe Place
The news paints a sorry picture, especially for foreigners. You might not know or realize but their are some negative stereotypes, and as a man you’re not going to be so concerned but remember, Thai girls are very conservative. Take a read of our "Dating Thai Girls" blog to get a more thorough understanding.
That small, quaint, quiet coffee shop that you love, might not be the best place to meet! You can bet your bottom dollar that she will bring friends, yes multiple, if she feels uncomfortable.
Just ask her “where would you like to meet?”, if she is relaxed, she’ll be way more open, the date will flow more smoothly and I believe, the best thing is, there’s less chance of her bringing friends!
You really should talk to, meet and date as many hot Thai girls as possible, but that doesn’t mean you should drop your standards and go on dates with everyone! Let’s face it, you probably don’t have the time and money to do so.
In a way, this is similar to being don’t be needy, keep your standards high, there are plenty of hot Thai girls, meeting one who you like and who knows could love is slightly more rare and that’s why you should take the time, get to know them a little and when you really want to, go on that date.
At the same time, don’t feel pressured into going on a date. There’s a lot less quality foreigners, the hot Thai girls are going to want to lock you down - just don’t let that happen!
Offer To Pay
This is a little controversial, aren’t men and women equal? Well in Thailand, men are still men and women are still women.
Offering to pay doesn’t mean you HAVE to pay the entire bill, if you’ve had a meaningful date you’re going to know her financial situation somewhat - what job she has, what her hobbies are, where she lives etc.
All of that said, until you really know her, don’t get offended by paying for the date. After a few dates if you feel she has the money and isn’t paying, just bring it up to her!
Don’t Forget To Enjoy Yourself
First and foremost, dating hot Thai girls should be fun. It’s serious business, you might end up in a serious relationship, but that should not be the goal! The goal is to enjoy yourself!
If you’re not enjoying dating, you need to take a look inside yourself and ask why? You are likely putting pressure on yourself, you will need to work on alleviating that pressure so that you can relax and have fun.
If you are having enjoyable dates, it’s going to come across to the people you are meeting. Everyone likes someone who is positive, you’ll find much higher levels of success just by relaxing and letting loose a little!
