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 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.
So at least one budding entrepreneur recognized the problem existed and saw a potentially lucrative gap in the dating site market.
I'll confess I wasn't really sold on the idea but it would certainly make a refreshing change from browsing through the gazillions of Thai dating sites with pages of grainy photographs of overpowdered gold-diggers all describing their English as 'minimal' and looking for a foreign man with a good heart between the age of twenty and ninety.
This whole topic of relationships comes up regularly on the ajarn discussion forum.
Although I'm no Dr Ruth where dating and mating are concerned, I always get the impression many of the guys who post their thoughts are still nursing the battle scars of failed relationships back in their homeland. She knows what it's like to live in a city where at times the entire foreign male population seems to be chasing Thai tail.
Listen up: It's time to go get yourself a teacher ASAP.
