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.
I will be moving to Bangkok in August 2011 to work as a teacher in an international school.
I would like to meet other single foreign men (teachers would be great! I did live in Bangkok for 2 years (2002-2004) but during that time I was in a relationship so I did not experience the single life.
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.
The first time I traveled to Thailand felt exciting and new, but the moment I stepped out of the airplane I have lost track of how many times I traveled to this country, how many beautiful women I met and how many unforgettable moments I experienced.
Theyd be coming back as soon as they could afford it — if their "girlfriend" didnt drain their bank accounts dry in the meantime.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.While it features all of the conveniences you would expect from a modern metropolis it also has many quaint historical touches such as the 300 temples found within the city limits.When visiting Chiang Mai you will definitely want to take a trip to Doi Suthep a mountain on the outskirts of the city.
