Exploring the Depth of Thai Dating Culture & Its Unique Traits

If you plan on finding love and happiness with a Thai lady, you first have to make sure that you can really understand her. Being familiar to the Thai dating culture and the Thai dating rules is very important when searching for a Thai bride. Thai women usually guard their reputations by being extremely careful when it comes to entering into physical relationships with their partners. You have to know and respect that.

Naturally, there are numerous other aspects that should be mentioned when it comes to the dating Thai girl culture. Here you will be able to read something about part of them.

Understanding the basics of Thai dating culture

Before dating in Thai culture, you should know that physical intimacy is something extremely complex for a Thai girl. Thai ladies are educated in such a way that they are shy and careful when it comes to physical relationships. Thai women are typically virgins, shy and monogamous. They are very attentive when it comes to protecting their reputation, so they are never interested in having sexual experiences during dating. They do not date just for the sake of it, as they are always looking for serious relationships, commitment and love.

Why is this so important? Well, when you are dating a Thai woman, you have to show her a lot of respect. If she refuses any physical contact with you, you should know that this is part of her culture. Thai women restrain themselves from having physical contact beyond sitting close to each other.

Thai women consider that the head is the most sacred part of the body. This means that you cannot touch her head, unless you have her approval for that. Thai women will sleep with their partners only when the relationship is nearing marriage.

Another important aspect you should know which also is part of the Thai culture, is that Thai families commonly expect that a man dating a Thai lady would support her and her entire family. A man marring a Thai girl becomes responsible for her and her family, so he must have financial stability. Families met a potential husband before the relationship becomes serious, as they need to discuss financial matters.

The dating culture in Thailand is really unique, and it surely is different from all other Asian cultures. Thai women do not wed to arranged marriages, but the financial aspect is important. During the dates that take place prior of the marriage, a Thai lady will decide whether the character of the man she has chosen is a good one or not.

Dating a Thai girl can be quite a complex process. However, Thai women are amazing girls that will definitely make you the happiest you have ever been.

About author
Hello, my name is Ahara Henris, and I’m the person who writes most of the guides that you can find on this website. What’s special about me? Well, I moved to the US when I was 15. My mom married my stepdad, an American, so we moved from Thailand. There was a lot of mess with getting a K-1 visa and then getting a green card but now I understand that it was absolutely worth every effort. It wasn’t hard for me to assimilate, but I was more than surprised to find out that a lot of things that Americans think about Thai people, in particular, women weren’t even close to what they are really like. My mom and my stepdad had a great relationship, a happy family, so I didn’t actually understand why people consider dating someone from another cultural environment such a big problem. Moreover, when I was younger I tried to convince people telling them that Thai girls are not easy, a very few of them work with bar girls, and that Bangkok is actually not the only city where things like in Hangover 2 happen. One day, the team of contacted me—they needed an insider who knows a thing about Thai culture, and I needed a job. I worked as one of the consultants, part-time, but soon became a full-time author. I’m grateful for such an opportunity not only because it’s a great job but also because now I have a chance to tell more people about what Thai women are really like.
