    From the moment you sign up women will throw themselves at you.

    I was in touch with a girl on a dating site regularly when i first came here that wrote and read great English.

    When i met her i found out that she could hardly speak it or understand it spoken as she had learnt it from a textbook at school.

    About the best conversational English from a TG i`ve experienced in LOS was from a ex BG bar owner in Soi Dongtan that was into and attended MotoGP regularly withe her Italian BF and had met Rossi and Stoner and idolised them 5555

    The older more experienced BG`s usually can hold a decent conversation.

    My girlfriend's written English far exceeds her spoken English. For one, it is much easier for her to understand and for me to be understood. She learned English mostly over the internet, skype and facebook chats.

    Seeking opinions and knowledge: I have used the thai-language.com to compose sentences to communicate on sites but use the Western text; so is it just as difficult for a TG in a dating forum to read Thai in Western alphabet txt, as it would be for her to read straight English?

    After spending a few days in Sydney I think a bloke must be mad traveling all the way overseas to hook up with an Asian girl, the place is absolutely crawling with them. Yer I know they are not the same as your average BG but for volume, there are sure a lot of them out there. There must be quite a few on dating sites here?

    Just an observation.

    one of my wife's friends in Vancouver has a uni degree and has been to English classes here in Vancouver
    her written English is shockingly bad! like, it looks like a 4th grader has written it!

    on a side note, my stepson goes to a middle class Thai school and the english he learns is impeccable and he sent as a package the other day and his written English was better than mine!
    so maybe they are doing a better job of teaching kids English these days?

    Not surprising that they disappear after a couple or three months. Life moves on.

    Maybe they have got lucky with someone they have met, on-line, or elsewhere. Maybe they have become disillusioned with the idea of on-line partner seeking. Maybe.... Maybe.... Maybe.

    And then maybe they will come back on-line if things don't work out with the one they met. Or they want to have another go. Or whatever.

    Meanwhile there will be others who sign on to give it a try.

    All of the above, I would have thought, and more.

    Why do you check out internet dating sites? Why does anyone?

    Everyone has their reason, and they are not all the same.

    ^^^^ Just to add another reason they may stop is money. many don't have ANY writing ability, English or Thai and pay someone in the village with a computer, to do it all for them. If the family haven't been paid for their crop yet, or it is the wrong season then money can be short.

    i just looked at that site for 1st time, and the front page with the pics of girls, not too many lookers
    BUT.......we all know thai girls just don't seem to photo well
    we obviously know by walking around the country that on a whole, they are a beautiful ethnicity
    just seems cameras are not all that great to them

    This is a photo of the last girl I spent real time with from TF....she became a regular date/TGF and remains a good friend...worked reception at a hotel (for the school holidays) when I met her but has gone back to NST now to be with her kid again and teach school...28 yo, 5'8", a degree in political science...smart girl but as with most TG's wanted it to go from 0 to 100 in the first 2 dates...she has calmed down a bit since thank goodness

    I have no complaints about the "looks" of the girls I have met from TF....its more the "marriage within the first week" syndrome I have a problem with

    Met a TG through TF, took her to dinner and I was not expecting much more; she had come straight from the office, no make up, no jewelry but still looked as nice as in her photo; anyhow, she spoke very good English and it was a pleasant evening; she had recently been stood up by her German BF / Boss, he had been carrying on behind her back with a Filipina whom she was training and so, I guessed she was gutted and looking for a rebound relationship, we parted after dinner just friends. I think TG whom have no contact through bar work, previous boyfriends or work in an Int'l Co.are going to be hard work to converse with, IMO.

    I recently had a girl I met on TF come to Australia on holidays with 2 of her friends. They stayed with me at my place here in Gosford and I took them to the Hunter Valley on the Saturday and to the Reptile Park on the Sunday, after the dating bit was done and I proved not to be a grub, we spent the next couple of nights together in our own hotel room in Sydney before she flew home.
    Educated, financially independant, hotel receptionist from BKK, who is attractive and has a great personality, really great weekend.
    If I was in BKK I would have a couple of dates every weekend with attractive ladies via this and another site no problem, I have had 3 messages today and 3 yesterday alone.
    My mate lines up about 5 or 6 dates per trip as he's over the phoniness of the BG scene, he's met a couple of great girls this way.

    Further to the comments above about them not being lookers, thats the best kind of site, because it means there actually real and not phony profiles and in regards to the "majority" looking for sugar daddy's, I say from mine and my mates experience its the minority.

    I signed up to have a look, and I am drowning in messages. Now I know how girls on dating sites feel in the west, 555.

    It's a little too serious for me though. Isn't there a Thai dating site for more casual relationships?
