The TLL (Thai Love Lines) poll shows that 55% of Thai women seeking Dutch partners or husbands used Thai dating sites whereas 35% met their partners indirectly through friends or introductions.
The TLL poll also shows that Thai women in Holland are satisfied with their relationships and showed that 68% of them were officially married to Dutch men.
Once you get married even the little effort she once made to look just like every other Dutch girl about town will go out of the window.
Perhaps I am old-fashioned but I cannot see or feel any expression of love or affection in this scenario.
It is a pity I cannot write a longer article because I have plenty of stories and views an on this subject.
I will only narrate those that immediately come to my mind as I go along.
A Dutch guy I met at a barber shop once had this to say on the subject of a Dutch Treat and dating, “ If the date is going well I do not mind paying the entire bill. If it is not going well, I will make sure she pays half. I will not spend my money on a bad date.” What immediately came to my mind was that this man was a cheapskate and clearly lacks a romantic bone in him.
However, I later realized that this is not very strange in the Netherlands.
