ThaiFriendly Review, the best dating site in Thailand ?
There's no doubt that Thaifriendly is one of the most popular dating app in Thailand.
It already claims more than 2 millions users and have an active community that make it one of the best website to find dates in Bangkok and all over Thailand.
Easy sign up, clean interface, tons of users, lots of filters for searches... Thai friendly have a lot of good arguments. But that doesn't mean it is perfect. No dating app is.
So let's review Thaifriendly together and see if it's worth giving it a shot.
The number one Thai dating app ?
At least that's what Thaifriendly website claim.
It says that the app have over 2 millions users. Impossible to verify but if we consider that Thailand have almost 70 millions people and count over 30 millions visitors each year, that sounds possible.
On top of that, the app is available everywhere in the world. Yes, you can find Thai girls in the US, the UK and even in Japan on thaifreindly.
But that's definitely in Thailand that you will find most of the users.
And unlike Tinder or Happn that only show people around you, with Thai friendly you can see all the profiles from the app and do search by city or region. Useful when you're planning a trip.
Basically, you got access to all the users on the platform, no matter where you are or where they are.
The app also seem to be more suited for people who look for something serious with the possibility to filter profiles by education, occupation... You can even know if your future date have children and / or if they want some.
Anyway, enough with the introduction, let's dive into the app. What is Thaifriendly really worth?
Thaifriendly sign up
Creating an account on Thai friendly is pretty easy and fast.
You can choose to sign up with Facebook or with your phone number and start the creation of your profile.
Step 1 : Username, log in details and basic info
Step 2 : Give more details about yourself
Step 3 : Tell the app what you're looking for
Keep in mind that most details that you give to the app (except your log in details) will be available on your profile for everyone to see.
I feel like it's a good idea so this way you don't waste your time with people that are on the app for completely different reasons than yours.
People who look at your profile know right away more about you and what you want. And the same goes for you when you look at their profile.
Setup your profile
Once you've sign up, you can now give even more details about you and answer a few questions to help the app match you with similar profiles.
That's not a mandatory step but I feel like if you're looking for something special, like a serious relationship, someone that want children or on the opposite, something casual, that help to put all the chances on your side.
I also like the fact that profiles are really complete and most details are accessible for everyone to see.
On most dating apps you're always asking the same questions to learn more about someone and why they're using that dating app.
Here at least, you know right away.
That's why the more you profile is detailed, the more chances you have to meet someone that match what you want.
There's 2 ways to browse through profiles on Thai friendly.
1 - Browse all the profiles
This way you can browse through all the profiles available on the dating app. The filters include :
- Gender (girls, ladyboys, or girls and ladyboys)
- Age (min and max)
- Have Photo
- Online now
- English / Thai ability (premium)
- Education (premium)
- Weight / Height (premium)
- Newest members (premium)
That's pretty complete and great to narrow down the options to what you really want.
Want someone that speak decent english and over 1m60, you can use the filters to find just that.
2 - Play
The play search option is similar to other popular dating apps that have the famous swipe function.
Based on the filters you put, the app show you a profile that you can like, hide or message directly. Then it move on to the next one.
That's a more playful way to check profiles but there's so many people on the app that I feel like it's better to start with a broad search to be more efficient and then switch to play when you've got some spare time.
But it's always good that they give you the liberty to choose between one or the other.
Even if it doesn't look like it a first sight, Thaifriendly chat is really responsive and fast.
With such a chunky design you would expect something a bit behind in term of technology but it's working just fine.
You can also sort your inbox by the last messages you sent, unread messages or the last message you received. Useful when you start to have a ton of messages in your inbox.
Automate with Message Autopilot
That's another function I really like. You can do mass messaging on this dating app.
You can send a message or photo to up to 250 users at the same time.
Don't have time to waste? Message hundred of girls and ladyboys at once and see who answer.
Thaifriendly is free to use but offer a premium version with additional features.
Let's be honest, the premium is almost mandatory if you really want to take advantage of Thai Friendly and all the possibilities it offers.
So, what's in Thai Friendly premium?
- Unlimited messaging. Send as many messages and comments as you want.
- Advanced search. Use all the filters available to narrow down your search (height, weight, education, children and more...).
- More privacy. You can put your profile online or offline whenever you want and hide it from non premium users.
- Slide your way into her DMs. Your messages arrive automatically on top of her inbox, above the messages from free users.

Payment methods and refund
You can pay for the premium membership by credit card or by paypal.
They also have a 15 days refund policy so you can try the premium features for a while at no risk.
Thai Friendly App
You can download Thai Friendly from both the app store and play store. So wether you've got an Android or an iPhone you can get the app on your phone and play on the go.
The app is really simple to use and have a way better design than the web version even though the website is better to setup your account and do more specific searches.
But once you've signed up and already matched with girls or guys on Thaifriendly, 100% switch to the app to chat.

Thai Friendly Review, main take away
Don't be fooled by the old school design, Thaifriendly is actually pretty good and have a lot more useful functionalities than other dating apps.
Of course, you're gonna need the premium membership to take full advantage of it, but the filters that let you sort the profiles by education, occupation, interests and more really help to find someone that match what you're looking for.
On top of that, you can see who saw your profile, when the person was last active, what they're looking fo and even add private notes on a profile for future reference.
In short, it's probably not as playful and fun to use as other dating apps, but if you're in Thailand and looking for some fun or serious relationships this app is perfect for both.
The extra features are also what separate Thaifriendly from the competition. With them you can find more effectively what you're looking for and avoid tons of meaningless and time consuming conversations.
