Relationships between a foreign man and a Thai woman might not be perfect, but they are often uncomplicated. But perhaps there are significant numbers of single male teachers out there who are tired of dating outside their own culture and want something a bit more challenging? And let's face it - even for those with the personality and appearance of a swamp donkey, Thai companionship is never too difficult to find.
Perhaps the opportunity to take a partner to a movie and then afterwards over coffee, discuss the director's use of camera angle and primary color - instead of asking whether the film was good or not, getting a one-word answer, and then continuing the taxi journey in silence. The question is how is Sarah going to connect with like-minded foreign teachers for a few rounds of the dating game?

I am just wondering if I should prepare myself for a lonely two-three years. I don't get sackloads of communication on this topic, but you do wonder just how many teachers are out there looking for love among their own kind in a country that's world-famous for......*cough*.........initiating relationships with local people.
Several months ago, I got an e-mail from a teacher who was thinking of starting up a dating website aimed purely at foreign teachers looking for relationships with other foreign teachers in Thailand.
Despite all the wonderful Asian women I have met from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, I know that If you ask me, waking up next to a woman with a thick sausage between her/his legs is a good reason for an intense therapeutic session.

I was in an internet caf in Thailand last year, trying to work out which continent I should fly to next, when my attention was entirely absorbed by an attractive Thai girl who sat down next to me and logged in.
She gave me one of those Thai smiles that could mean anything at all and then concentrated on her correspondence.
I hope that I can inspire and motivate you with this article to visit this wonderful country, to immerse into the local dating culture, to connect with amazingly beautiful Thai girls and to maybe find a woman who is just half as amazing as my incredible girlfriend.
But be careful to not end up in the arms of the wrong girl…Yes, I am a big fan of the women in this beautiful South East Asian country, but that doesn’t mean that I see things through rose-colored glasses.
