Prelude: Honestly, I wished I had known about ThaiCupid.com earlier before going on my trip to Thailand. I have heard about a lot of stories about men meeting beautiful women in Thailand. The stories have built up, one after another, encouraging me to see for myself. What I had in mind was waking up next to an exotic Thai lady morning after another. But, on my first trip I found out it was more of wishful thinking instead.
Here is another guest post from Mark, who is the one man who actually showed me the asian suite of Cupid Media brands such as Thai Cupid.
There are a LOT of beautiful women in Thailand. It is part of the culture there that women take good care of their appearance and you'll definitely notice.
One thing I notice, women in Thailand are crazy about having fair skin. What I wanted though, is more of an exotic type. But more than that, I found it difficult to just walk up to women in shopping centers or on the street.
I always get those awkward smiles, and at times, I get stumped after discovering that I am actually speaking to a tranny. Personally, I have nothing against them, but I just went my women the natural way.
For these reasons, I tried searching online, and poof! I found ThaiCupid.com which I had actually heard of before but completely forgot about. Whenever I go back to the country I use this platform extensively, and I am actually hoping to go back to Thailand a couple of months from now.
Is it Free?
Honestly, everybody wants to know if the site is free first so I'll begin with this.The basic membership is free (sign up here). However, there are only a few things that you expect to have access to with the free membership.
For instance, the number of messages that you can send are just limited. Also, you cannot have access to the advanced search feature which could provide you better matches on member profiles. The free version is good enough for the Pipeline method, where you sign up 2 weeks before going so that you can accumulate matches and start talking to some ladies.
This way you line up some dates and hangouts before you get to the country, so you can spend more time with women and less time trying to find them.
However, you'll want to get the Gold membership when you get there (the platinum membership is a WASTE of money). If you get the paid version, you can have access to its advanced matching engine. The first time I ever used ThaiCupid (about 3 years) I indicated that I am interested in meeting a woman between 22-30. The first girl I met said she went by Cindy (not sure if this is her real name), working at an export company.
Cindy was decent looking - probably a 6.5 or 7 out of 10 and needless to say I took her out for some drinks and took her back to my place. First girl matched led to a good fuck. 100% success isn't bad (if only it lasted)!
While I also have some other search returns, I stuck with her pretty consistently since she was pretty fun to be with. That’s one thing about the women in Thailand. Those that are educated and working in multinational companies are expected to at least be able to hold a good conversation. They have their funny accent, but are still understandable.
Overall though there are a lot of Thai women whose English isn't that good.
Does Thai Cupid Work?
If you're asking this question, then you probably haven't really been reading. Hell yeah, it works. I even found this out after my first match. Now, I can't say I kept up that 100% success rate, but if you're looking for a quick hookup then Thai Cupid is great.
Thai Cupid girls are very receptive to traveling guys since they actually expect to meet a lot of foreigners on the website. With that in mind they tend to be less conservative and more down to hook up and less worried about settling with a nice Thai man.
The biggest thing that I like about using this Thai dating site is that they tend to have better English than other Thai girls. They know they will be meeting a lot of foreigners and since the site is English itself, they understand that they need English to converse with a lot of the other members.
I continue to use Thai Cupid whenever I go there, and have been for the past 3 years. I can't really imagine using another Thai dating site. One thing to note though is not to reply on this completely. You still need to go out there and meet some Thai women.
The women on ThaiCupid.com are great, but also only represent one type of Thai women. To get the full experience, you'll want to still try to meet other women at the clubs. Thailand has a big night scene that is fun to be a part of. I'm sure you've heard that there are strip clubs on almost every corner and this is pretty true in the big cities.
Just be aware that there are a lot of trannies there so I wouldn't recommend hooking up with girls here if you just want a classic woman.
Is the Site Easy to Use?
The website is very easy to use. I have observed that unlike other websites under its parent company Cupid Media, it does not have a lot of complicated features in its main page. It is very easy to navigate, especially for fellow millennial or anyone who has basic internet experience.
It would be awesome if they created an app though. This would make it a LOT easier, but I don't mind using the site when I have to.
Is it a Legit or a Scam?
Aside from the fact that I have read tons of reviews about actual users of the website who have reported their success stories, I am also a member who has benefited from the strict moderation policy of the site. Most people tend to find pretty good success with Thai Cupid.
However, one thing that you have to be aware of is the amount of trannies. It's not a scam really, but you really need to be aware of this if sleeping with a tranny bugs you. If not, you don't have to worry about much.
I, myself, had an experience with one before. It happened in my 2nd trip back to Thailand. I sent my normal scripted messages, and got a pretty quick reply. I started communicating, but it was only when I had access to the video messaging that I found out that there was something off.
I asked her straight up if she was born a chick since I knew this might be a problem and at least she (he?) told me straight up that she was a tranny. Well, they have the right to be on the site, but I think I am just looking for straight women and am glad I found out early rather than too late. If they have a deeper voice or are more muscular than most women then ASK.
The only real "scammy" part of ThaiCupid.com is the same as any other dating site and chat platform. There will be people who try to gain your trust to get some money. They'll often say things like they need money to take a taxi to you or money for some clothes for the date. Don't fall for it.
Either way, this is a problem with the members and not the site itself. As long as you're not stupid about stuff you'll be fine.
Comparison With Other Sites?
There are several other dating websites similar to Thaicupid.com. Among them are ThaiFriendly.com, DateinAsia.com and OKcupid.com. However, I personally prefer Thaicupid.com because of the reputation it has already established in the industry. Being under the network of Cupid Media, and with alliances with other websites, there is an assurance when it comes to reliability and integrity.
I like the simplicity of the website. As a person who is not really into technology, I just like its simple features and user friendly approach. The advanced search is also particularly helpful when it comes to match making. All in all, I prefer Thaicupid.com compared to other websites.
Conclusion: Is it Worth It?
One thing I really like about Thai Cupid is that it is a non-exclusive website. This means that it is open to members of all nationalities who are curious about the Thai culture or Thai women. While I speak and communicate in English, I like the fact that it is also available in other languages.
Yes, having an account with ThaiCupid.com is well worth it, especially if you are looking to chase some tail.
If you are planning to visit Thailand and meet girls there, I highly recommend signing up with ThaiCupid.com first. There are several advantages that you can experience by doing so. For example, before actually meeting any girl, the website will allow you to see the lady, hear her voice, and learn more about her.
I always ensure to line up the ladies by using the pipeline method, and don't pay until I'm actually in the country. This way you can filter those with real accounts from not, and you can already start establishing rapport with a girl that you can possibly meet in person during your visit in Thailand.
I recommend getting the 1 month membership first, and if you like it then try checking out the 3 month. You'll save a lot of money per month, but it might not be worth it if you're staying for a short duration. Just remember do NOT get the platinum membership as it is a waste of money. The gold membership is more than enough. Check out ThaiCupid here.
