I don’t fancy colors of the face, I’m always attracted to colors of the brain.
It’s a fact now. The racial divide is blurring. More and more people are dating outside their race. This is the current trend in the dating world and we don’t need any statistics to prove this. Just take a walk around any American or European city and you would come across Caucasian men holding hands of Asian girls, or black guys with white women. This scene has become so common that we don’t react to it anymore; neither are we bothered by all the uproar related to interracial differences.

Changing trends in the global dating scenario – interracial relationships are ruling the world
Do you wonder why there is this sudden spike in interracial relationships? How did the change happen? What led to this change in the society? Why more and more western men are dating women from other countries?
Historically, interracial marriages were not encouraged by ethnic groups. Even in the United States, such marriages were not legal in the eyes of the law. It has only in 1967 that the interracial marriages were legalized in the USA. People had several taboos about mixed relationships. The cultural divide played a huge role. Most people were under the impression that these relationships cannot stand the test of time and thus discouraged them.
However, as people settled in different countries and came in contact with the native culture, the differences started blurring. The internet has played a major role in making interracial dating popular.
The online dating sites brought people from different countries closer. It became so easy to chat up with people from far off countries and find your soul mate. With the advent of dating apps, interracial dating got a shot in the arm.
At the same time, the economic changes that were sweeping across the world. The barriers between countries started to melt down, trade flourished, MNCs started expanding their businesses, linking the whole world.
Thus more and more Asians got settled in the America. Europe also came closer. In most European and Americans colleges, you would find Asian students. Philippines, Indonesia, India and even China have their citizens traveling to western countries to pursue higher education. Thus, it has become so common today for young Americans or Europeans to date their fellow Asian batchmates.
Now, it is time to delve deeper. If you study the ethnicity of the people involved in inter-country relationships, you would find the ratio skewed towards Thai girls. What is it about Thai girls that appeal to the western guys? Let us try to find out.
Why western men like Thai women?
A busy, vibrant, goal-oriented woman is so much more attractive than a woman who waits around for a man to validate her existence.
Thai girls are beautiful
Let’s be honest. They are endowed with great skin and hair, have good figures and make excellent girlfriends. They are elegant, smart and modern.
Thailand, located in the South East of Asia is a beautiful country with beaches, amazing views and impressive historical architecture. Naturally, it attracts a lot of foreign tourists. In fact, Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia.
The citizens of this country, especially those who live in the capital or the major cities are exposed to western lifestyle. The women also know English and get modern education. They have imbibed western outlook regarding love, relationships, and even money. Thus, western men find them in tune with their own idea of love and relationships.
Consumerism is rampant throughout the world and is more pronounced in the west. There is nothing bad in this but when you give undue importance to material possessions, you lose touch with life. Happiness gets equated with big houses and swanky cars. Men, who look beyond such mindset, find it difficult to get in a relationship with someone who only eyes his bank balance.
Thai girls are not brought up in this way and thus are simpler. They usually do not expect to stay in big houses or roam around in big cars after marriage. Of course, they value money; they also want to lead a comfortable life but are not blinded by these only. Love, affection, and family hold a special position for them.
Most Thai girls are hard working
The society of Thailand is largely patriarchal. Women are not given equal position as men in the family. The modern girls, who are exposed to western ways of living, value the respect the western women get from their male friends and also want that in their lives. They study hard, get into jobs and work harder to create a respectful life for themselves. This is also the reason why they prefer to settle down with western guys.
Don’t think that Thai girls are all work and no play. Being young and vivacious, they love to party, drink, and dance. They love shopping, just like any other girl. Western men, who fall in love with Thai women, love this facet of their ladies too. They can enjoy their time, go out, drink and make merry and yet have a stable relationship where love rules the game.
Thai women put emotional needs over material gains
This is quite uncommon in western societies nowadays. This appeals to the western men who find women of their country interested in things like career, money and future savings. To put in simple words, the Thai women with their different point of view about life and what’s important comes as a pleasant surprise to western guys.
Thai girls are well-grounded. Though they are exposed to western culture, they still have a lot of traditional values regarding men, family, parenting and money. Most Thai girls prefer to settle down with their men and have children. They don’t mind taking care of the children or doing household chores.
Thai girls are not dominating in nature
This again has to do with the way they have been brought up. They give leads to their men, lets them take the responsibility. In other words, they do not want to get into the shoes of men. Men, who enjoy importance, love their Thai girlfriends for this. Men can be men with their Thai partners and yet create a loving relationship based on respect, trust, and mutual admiration.
Thai women believe in stability
They do not run after money, to them happiness counts more than money. They are mature and sensible. They are usually cool-headed. While men can get frivolous and commit mistakes, their girlfriends would be always there to fall back upon. They bring stability in the lives of their men which keep them hooked. Thus, men who look for long-term happiness and love in life, feel blessed to have these women in their lives.
You would find most Thai girls engaged in jobs and saving money for their parents, which is quite uncommon in the west. They toil hard and pick up skills that fetch them jobs when they migrate with their husbands. As a result, the men who marry these women get a wife who is capable of taking care of themselves and the family.
There is one thing that several of my friends who are in relationships with wonderful Thai girls have pointed out. In general, these women are optimistic. They don’t get bogged down by pressure and know how to tackle problems. They are practical, level-headed, and serious about life.
Fun to hang out with
If you think that dating a Thai lady means only serious stuff, you are wrong. They are fun loving too. Yes, you won’t miss out on the fun part if you date these girls. Thai ladies love to dress up and apply makeup. They love to wear heels. Even college going young girls take care of their looks. In this regard, they stand as in stark contrast to their western counterparts. While most western women today are sloppy about their looks, the Thai girls always take care that they look prim when going out.
Their feminine nature
If you think femininity is a lost art, you got to meet Thai girls. They are feminine to the core. Although they are modern and well aware of their rights, they look feminine. They don’t trade it to become equal to men. Thai women deserve respect and they make sure that they get it from their men. Their behavior and attitude command respect.
You must be aware that how our society looks grim if you consider the rate at which families are breaking down. Around 50% of marriages end in divorces nowadays. Most youngsters are afraid to tie the knot because they are afraid of the pressures that come with the relationship.
Rampant cheating is another ugly truth of the western society. All these have made most western men and women wary of marriage. However, when people get into relationships with someone from another country, they experience a different scenario. Since Thai ladies are family-oriented they are less prone to fall for cheating, drinking or other vices. They keep their men happy and thus make their marriages successful.
People who have friends married to Thai girls are prone to choose a Thai lady for themselves as they know that they stand to be happy in their married lives.
The reality of Thai girls – look before you take a leap
Now, I want to make a point right here. Like everywhere else, there are stereotypes too. You may read a lot of articles praising Thai girls and how they bring happiness to their guys’ life and a few condemning them as gold diggers. It all depends on the choices you make.
I must say, there are people who have negative experiences about Thai girls. If you visit the popular cities of Thailand, you would meet modern and educated women. However, the women from the villages are still very backward. If you date any of these women you are bound to feel dejected after some time as these women would not be able to satisfy your emotional or intellectual needs. Moreover, their parents may create problems in the relationships too.
So, if you are keen to date Thai girls, you need to find the right way to meet them. There would be differences between girls you meet at the bar or in an office.
So, before you label a girl opportunistic or emotionless, think about the reality. Now, since we are talking about bad dating experiences, I think we should mention the myths that surround beautiful Thai women. Yes, there are plenty of them, mostly conflicting to what your friends may tell you.
Myths about Thai girls
Rich and old white guys bait younger Asian girls
You may come across photos of young Thai girls with old, pot-bellied western men, implying that rich and white guys marry younger brides but this depiction is redundant. Gone are the days when white guys went down to East to get younger brides. Today, western males date Asians, especially Thai girls in their colleges and universities. They date Thais they meet in workplaces and settle down with them because they find these women mature, sensitive and romantic.
Western men like Asians bride as they are submissive
This again has much to do with the images media portray. Asian women are different from western ladies, their sense of femininity and liberty are also unique, but you cannot label them as submissive or weak. That’s gross injustice because these women are not submissive. They know how to look after themselves and their families, they are strong enough to stand for their own rights and speak out when necessary.
Consider this, here is a woman, born and brought up in far-off East, falls in love with a western guy, marries him and leaves her country to settle in his country. She finds a job in the foreign land, raises a family and leads a happy family. Won’t you call her courageous?
White guy falls for Thai woman
No, this stereotype again is hackneyed. Today, it is not about white guys only. Today, western men, black, Hispanic, American and Europeans are falling in love with Thai girls. So, if you believe that only white guys marry Thai girls, you need a reality check.
Thai girls marry western guys for money and green card
I won’t say that this is not true. There are girls who marry western guys only to get away from their country but this is true for western women also. There are many ladies who marry for money and a comfortable life. Even Russians, Italians and women from Latin America marry for money. Why only point out a handful of Thai girls?
There are Thai girls who are ambitious and get admission in western universities to pursue higher education and eventually settle down there with western men. On the other hand, there are western men who have settled in Asia with their Thai wives. So, it is the time that you stand against these myths and show people the reality.
Western men marry Thai women because they cannot get anyone from their own race
Now, I don’t know whether people who say this want to insult the western men, western women or Thai ladies. Today, the world has become a global village. People are getting into diverse occupations according to their inclinations and settling wherever they want. They are meeting new people, be it from their own country or otherwise, dating them and marrying according to their own choice. A western man is free to marry anyone and if he finds that a Thai matches his taste, let it be so. Why malign his choice?
Western men and Thai girls – new age love stories
Western men like Thai girls and the vice versa is also true. Thai girls also like western men as they find them attractive. Western guys with their tall figures, handsome looks, and pointy nose easily win the heart of these Asian beauties.
Thai men are conservative and believed to have a patriarchal mindset. This puts off the ladies who are attracted to western liberal thinking.
Thai women find western men more sensitive, friendly, romantic and suitable as life partners. Western men pay more respect to women which Thai women enjoy. Western men with their sense of humor, love for fun and natural charm are irresistible to Thai women.
Each person is beautiful in his own ways. It is up to us to discover it and celebrate it. Thai women are unique. They are beautiful, strong, mature, and make great life partners. Thus Western men are attracted towards them. Do you like Thai girls? What makes you like them? Tell us your experience of dating Thai girls.
