You just need white skin or be from a western speaking country.
Many girls are working long hours so they don’t have the time to socialize, they find using Thai Friendly a great way to find relationships of all kinds.
Several of my friends in Bangkok have Thai girlfriends, who I can tell are not after their money, don’t believe all the stereotypes on the Internet, Thai girls are not always after your money.
Either way, life is a game, going to Thailand is no different, all you can do is role the dice and see what the outcome is.
It is not uncommon for people to meet up for a date only to find the girl 10lbs overweight and nothing like she was in the pictures.
When this happens you just got “Thai friendly’d”, and what you do is laugh it off and chalk it up as experience, or maybe send me a read submission of the story!
