Single In Thailand? 7 Thai Dating Sites & Apps You Should Try
Online dating is popular in Thailand, but if you want to meet the most attractive Thai singles, you need to know where to find them.
For the best results, start with one of these 7 best Thai dating sites and apps!
If you’re in a population dense area like Bangkok or Chiang Mai, chances are you’ll find tons of attractive Thai singles.
As in the US, Tinder is a go-to app for singles in the 18 to 30 age range, but you’ll likely find women of all ages looking for everything from casual to serious relationships.
Tinder is a swiping app, meaning you swipe to the right to “like” a profile, or to the left if you’re not interested. When both people “like” each other’s profiles, it’s a match - and you can send her a message.
Tinder is free to download and use, but you can only “like” 100 profiles in 12 hours. That will likely go pretty quickly when you’re using Tinder in Thailand, so you may want to think about upgrading to Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold.
Here is how the two premium memberships compare:
If you want to get the ball rolling on dates in Thailand before you get there, Tinder’s Passport feature is the worth the money. It allows you to change your location and swipe through singles in any Thai city that’s on your itinerary.
Tinder Plus costs just under $10/month if you’re 30 and under. If you’re older than that, it costs $19.99/month. Tinder Gold starts at $21.99/month, with a price break for committing to multiple months at once.
If you’re under 31, Tinder Plus costs $9.99 a month. If you’re older than 31+, it’s $19.99. Tinder Gold is $21.99 for one month, and the price drops to $10 a month when you commit to a year-long subscription.

In the Encounters section, you can swipe left or right on profiles, and exchange messages with any you match with.
The app also displays Badoo users who are nearby you, and any you have crossed paths with in real life show up in your match feed. In both cases, the apps only displays users who have similar interests.
You can create a profile, browse profiles, and exchange messages for free. Badoo also offers a premium membership, which comes with extra features called “Super Powers:”
Badoo Premium costs range from $1.99 for 1 day to a lifetime membership for $159.99.
If you’re looking for a more casual relationship, Badoo is a good place to find it. While you’ll see women who are seeking serious relationships, it’s got more of a “hookup” reputation than a more serious dating app like Bumble or CoffeeMeetsBagel.

Thai Friendly is a dating site that’s especially popular with women in their early 20s, although you’ll find Thai singles of all ages on it.
With a free membership, you can create your profile, view photos, browse through profiles, and send one message every 10 minutes.
Sending unlimited messages requires a premium subscription. Here are the other features you’ll get for your money, and what it costs:
Thai Friendly is one of the largest of the Thai dating sites, and the detailed search criteria makes it easy to filter the huge user pool and find attractive women you can’t wait to meet.
But one thing to keep in mind - this dating site also attracts a fair number of “bar girls” (aka women expecting payment for their company), so you’ll want to screen your matches carefully.

If you’re looking to meet Thai singles in the “under 35” age bracket, OkCupid is a must-try. Especially if you’re living or staying in a mega city like Bangkok, or in a college town.
You can read, send, and reply to messages for free - but there’s a twist. In order for your icebreaker message to go straight to her inbox, she needs to have “liked” your profile.
If that hasn’t happened yet, your profile automatically appears in her Search, Discovery, and DoubleTake sections. Your first message shows up on your profile, so she has to check it out in order to read it.
In addition to messaging, all the basic functions like creating your profile, filtering your matches, and viewing photos of Thai singles are free.
OkCupid offers two “premium” membership levels which have a monthly fee. Here is a quick comparison of the A-List Basic and A-List Premium features:
Upgrading to A-List starts around $19.95/$34.90 per month, with a discount in price for purchasing multiple months at a time. Check out this article to see if paying for A-List is a good idea for you.

Bumble is an app like Tinder; you swipe left or right on profiles, and form a “connection” when there’s mutual interest. At that point you can exchange messages.
There’s a twist, though - on Bumble guys can’t message women first. Women enjoy using Bumble because they aren’t bombarded with unwanted messages, and guys like Bumble because when they do get a message, they know she’s actually interested.
Using Bumble requires a daily check in if you want to get the best results. Women only have 24 hours to send the first message to guys who intrigue them, and guys only have 24 hours to respond to her icebreaker.
If either of those things doesn’t happen, the match will expire. But once each half of the match has sent a message, there are no more time restrictions.
Bumble is a great dating app for free, but if you want even more bells and whistles you can upgrade to Bumble Boost.
This premium subscription allows you to view only profiles of users who have already “liked” you, instantly match with expired connections instead of waiting for them to come around in your queue again, and add an additional 24 hours to a connection that’s in danger of expiring.
Bumble Boost costs $8.99 for 1 week, $24.99 for 1 month, $49.99 for 3 months, and $79.99 for 6 months.
The women on Bumble are generally looking for a more serious relationship, so if you’re in the market for something more casual OkCupid, Thai Friendly, or Tinder is likely a better bet.

CoffeeMeetsBagel is a popular dating app in Thailand, especially with women who are 25 to 34 and serious about finding a relationship. Around 30% of CMB users are 35+.
Every day at noon, guys get up to 21 potential matches, called “bagels.” Women also receive their bagels at noon, but are only presented with profiles who have already “liked” them.
You only have 24 hours to make a decision on each bagel, or else the match expires. When both users “like” each other, you can start exchanging messages with each other. There’s one more countdown you need to worry about, though - you can only exchange messages with matches for 7 days.
There’s also a “Discover” section where you can like or pass on profiles. “Liking” profiles requires spending “beans,” which are the in-app currency.
Most of CMB’s basic features, like creating a profile, viewing your potential matches, and exchanges messages, are free. A Premium membership costs $34.99, and includes these additional perks:

Thai Cupid is an international dating site, meaning you can meet Thai women all over the world on it, but there’s plenty of local Thai singles as well.
While it’s free to do basics like create your profile, upload photos, view photos, and filter your matches using all the detailed search criteria, sending messages requires a paid membership. Free users can reply to messages sent by paid users, but if you want to contact any Thai women who interest you, plan on paying for a subscription.
There are two premium membership options, Gold and Platinum. Here is what you can do at each level:
A Gold membership costs $34.99 for 1 month, $69.98 for 3 months, or $139.99 for 1 year. A Platinum membership is $39.99 for 1 month, $79.98 for 3 months, or $159.99 for 1 year.
