With the rise of foreigners coming to Thailand to study at Thai universities, intercultural dating also rises. As more and more foreigners come to work in Thailand, the cases of intercultural dating also increase.
For these last two reasons it’s common to see relationships between people of similar ages and between all social classes.
If you live a middle-class lifestyle in Thailand, some lower-class Thais may call you snobby if you refuse to eat street food.
Or some upper-class Thais may call you cheap if you refuse to shell out 4,000 baht on sushi.
Despite the seedy impression you may get from English-language media that covers Thailand, plenty of young, professional locals and expats date in Thailand.
But going out and meeting people is easier said than done, especially if you’re a new arrival and haven’t built up an extensive social network.
Dating in Thailand is fun, dramatic, rewarding, and depressing.
You may be wondering what kind of Thai person dates a foreigner.
In the West, dating creates the platform for a relationship, so you need to get it right.
