Every week I get emails from companies who ask me to review their online dating sites. Most of them are crap and sites that I wouldn’t recommend to my worst enemy.
A couple of days ago I received another one of these emails, but this time something was different.
The CEO of the company who asked me to review his international dating site was kind, explained everything in detail and he was happy to answer all my questions.
To be more precise, he answered all of my 22 questions…
His name is Martin, he lives in Bangkok and I’ll probably meet him next year when I move to Thailand.
I couldn’t say no to this nice fella when he asked me to review his dating site Thairomances.com. Okay, let’s be honest. I couldn’t say no when I saw the girls who were waiting for me on the inside.
What Makes Thairomances.com Unique
Yes, the female members that are waiting for you are beautiful, but that’s nothing unique. There are many Thai dating sites with stunning female members.
But Thairomances.com is unique in a different way. They do something that I haven’t seen on any competitor site. When you click on their about page, you can see a section in which they describe how they help children in need.
You might not care about it and I know that it won’t help you to find a Thai girlfriend or wife, but I think that it’s awesome. It’s great to see that Martin and his team support children in need. I like this altruistic aspect and I wish that more established sites would follow this example.
How Thai Romances Fights Against Scammers
Another aspect that made me curious was the way they deal with spammers and scammers. In one of the first emails of the over 22 emails we sent each other, the founder of Thairomances.com told me that they have a unique system to detect spammers.
I wanted to know more and I didn’t stop until all my questions were answered (I can be pretty persistent).
Apparently, Thai Romances do their best to delete spam profiles and scammers. Well, other sites do that too. But it’s the next step that makes this Thai dating site unique.
They have a database of detected and deleted spammers and whenever such a dickhead tries to contact members, the members receive an alert.
It’s a great idea to ensure that the girls you see on the homepage are actually real...
The Questions You Have About Thairomances.com
Isn’t it good to know that spammers and scammers have no chance to survive on this foreign dating site?
Yep, but I am pretty sure that you also have a few additional questions about Thairomances.com that have nothing to do with the scam protection.
You want to know if you have a chance to meet your Thai wife on this site. You also want to know if the site is legit. Oh, and of course you want to know what you get when you sign up for free.
What’s the Women to Man Ratio?
Is it possible to meet a beautiful Thai girlfriend on this site?
Yes, it is.
Are the women on Thairomances.com interested in a serious relationship?
Yes, they are.
The majority of the women you will meet on this site are between 28 and 38 and ready to settle down.
In case you are not interested in getting married or settling down and want to date young, adventurous Thai girls, you should check out my Thai Friendly Review.
The women who join Thai Romances do this because they are looking for a man to settle down with. And the fact that at least 50% of the members are female makes it easy for you to meet these women.
Is Thai Romances a Legit Site?
Martin, the founder of Thairomances.com, answered all my questions. He even shows his face on the website, which is pretty rare for owners of online dating sites.
When I signed up on the site and tested it, there was no evidence to suggest that the site is not legit.
In case you sign up on this dating site and you have the feeling that there’s something odd here you should let me know. For now I can say that the site is legit and that the team is extremely helpful.
What Do You Get When You Sign Up For FREE?
Thairomances.com is one of the few dating sites that allow you to send messages for free. And not just one message. Your free account allows you to send as many messages as you want, at least until either you or the cute Thai girl you are chatting with want to exchange contact details.
As soon as you try to exchange contact details with a woman, you need to upgrade your membership.
However, you can’t use the advanced search feature and the username search feature as a free member.
How Much Does it Cost to Upgrade and What’s Included?
Upgrading your Thai Romances membership won’t leave you broke. It’s really not that expensive.
Let’s assume you choose the 6 month paid membership. This would cost you $45.86 in total, which is about $1.78 per week. I think you can afford that.
But why should you afford it?
Well, even though this Thai dating site allows you to contact girls as a free member, the paid membership has some advantages.
The Pros of Thairomances.com
When it comes to certain things, Martin and his team did an excellent job.
Here are some of the pros I came up with after I tested the service:
Pros of ThaiRomances
- The site owners donate money to children in need (social aspect)
- You can select every match criteria from one night stand to marriage
- The membership fees are comparatively cheap
The Cons of Thairomances.com
But of course the site is far from perfect.
Here are the cons that my test brought up:
Cons of The Female Mind Control System
- The Design is a bit outdated and the navigation can be confusing at the beginning.
- The site doesn’t have as many members as established Thai dating sites
- The search function is really hard to find (no “Search” button in the navigation menu)
How to Use Thai Romances
Let’s have a look at how to actually use Thairomances.com.
Signing up and contacting girls is not hard. They even explain the signup process on their website.
Step 1: Go to Thairomances.com and Sign Up For FREE
Signing up is completely free. It doesn’t cost you a dime and it really simple.
You go to Thairomances.com and click on the “Or Join For Free” button.
To be honest, I would have separated the sign in button for existing members and the button for people who are interested in joining the dating site.
When I first landed on the site I already entered my email address and a password until I realized that the “Or Join For FREE” button directs me to another page. In terms of design, there’s definitely room for improvement.
Step 2: Upload a Profile Picture
Once you filled out the information and signed up, you are asked to upload a profile picture.
This step is pretty straightforward and doesn’t require any further guidance. Just upload your best photo and you can continue with the matching.
Step 3: Your Potential Dating Matches
In the category matching you can determine who you are looking for and who you are not looking for. I think it’s good that you can include and exclude ladyboys and tomboys. Not many sites have this feature.
Step 4: Why Should the Women Contact You?
That’s a good question, right?
Maybe because your profile on Thai Romances is so amazing that they can’t resist you. But that’s only possible if you are husband material. In other words, don’t be an alcoholic, don’t smoke like a factory and be single.
Even though the dating site is perfect for guys who want to meet Thai women who are looking for a serious relationship, the section Your Desired Relationships allows you to choose everything from One Night Stands to Love.
But I honestly believe that you get more messages when you don’t tick the box “One Night Stand”. Or you do it like me and find a way to turn the fact that you are looking for a one night stand into an irresistible brownie point.
Step 5: Search for Beautiful Thai Brides
You filled out your profile and you determined who you are looking for. Now it’s time to contact your first potential girlfriend.
But first, you need to find her, which isn’t as easy as it sounds. There is no Search button in the menu. It took me a while until I found out that clicking on the Thai Romances Home button in the left corner of the menu directs you to the search function.
This needs to be improved.
What doesn’t need to be improved is the search function. It’s pretty good. You can easily search for women in your area and you also get a few recommended matches.
The advanced search feature also gets a big thumbs up from me.
You can search for women with a certain education, a particular body type and specific interests. If you use the advanced search function it is nearly impossible to not find the right Thai girl on this site.
