What Is It Like To Date A Thai Woman Man Or Thai Man?

Thai Temple

Here we are on decidedly shaky ground.

A common way to answer this is to make a sweeping generalization, but people are far more complicated than what that guy in the bar in Bangkok says.

The psychological makeup of people is far more expansive within a culture rather than across different cultures. In my experience, you’re equally likely to gel with a Thai person as you are with someone of your own nationality if you share the same inherent personality traits like extroversion or neuroticism.

We can perhaps make a few safe claims based on sociological study; for example, 95% of Thai people are Buddhist, which probably means your prospective partner is going to have taken on some of the teachings of the Buddha. This might manifest as a positive detachedness; someone almost crashes into you on the highway, and your Thai partner bares no animosity toward them.

Another thing we can say is that Thai people think about marriage much faster. The average age for marriage in Thailand is 27, whereas, in England, it’s 37. This is something to consider if you don’t plan to marry until later in life.

Somewhat shockingly, 23% of girls are married by the time they’re 18, although that is definitely in more rural areas. Thailand is moving toward western marriage trends in other ways; for example, in the ten years ending in 2016, divorce rates had gone up from 26% to 39%.

Another thing to consider is the divide between the rural and urban. Roughly 50% of Thai people live in the countryside, and one marker of philosophical difference, even in the West, is between people who live in the country and city.

Finally, it is worth considering the financial position of the average Thai person. The average GDP per person is around $8,000. Compare that to Switzerland, with an average GDP of $86,000. This opens up all sorts of complications, including parts of the world that are more inaccessible for Thai people. My advice, if you’re from Switzerland, pick up the check on the first date ;p
