Thai Cupid may not have been on the scene for as long as other more established dating websites in this category, yet this hasn't stopped them having already amassed thousands of profiles and around 1300 members online at any one time (though this includes male and female members - the total number of female members is not disclosed).
Powered by the dating network Cupid Media, ThaiLoveLinks is much the same as InternationalCupid.com as well as the ensemble of other Cupid Media websites. Hence, both have exactly the same members' database and the same set of features - it is really only the design of the site that differs, and even that only differs slightly. As such, you will find that the text of our review for ThaiLoveLinks is much the same as our review for InternationalCupid.com. However you may be interested to know that Thai Cupid is by far the more popular of the Cupid Media sites for those looking for love specifically with a Thai woman. But it doesn't really matter which one you join - if you post your profile on one of these sites it will be accessible to members of both, and members of both sites will be accessible to you, since they share a common database of members. The same goes for all the other many websites that are members of Cupid Media.
As with its sister sites on the Cupid Media network, Thai Cupid offers a service far removed from what many readers would imagine as a traditional mail order bride service. Rather than paying for contact details of organizing "romance tours", users are simply given a platform and a means of communication and left to get on with it. Now before you immediately dismiss Thai Cupid as second rate service, it's worth keeping in mind that this new model for mail order bride sites has lead to a dramatic decrease in prices and an opening up of the market to a far greater public. In the past, language and foreign travel difficulties were significant, meaning that professional assistance in finding a Thai bride was almost always necessary.
However, today, travel to Thailand as a solo tourist (or with a group) could not be easier, and the majority of Thai women looking for western men have a pretty good understanding of the English language to allow you to communicate without the need of a translator. Yes, things may take a bit longer to get off the ground, but with instant chat, video calls and chat rooms, users have all the necessary features for building a relationship with the Thai woman of their dreams before arranging a visit to hopefully seal the deal. The only slight difficulty you may encounter, and this does vary greatly depending on your country of origin, is obtaining a Visa for your potential Thai beauty. This is where professional services can really help you out, as this can be a real hassle just when you think you've got all the hard work out the way. On the other hand, Visa services can be purchased separately in Thailand if and when needed.
In conclusion, we would recommend readers have a think about what they're willing to pay and what level of support they expect. A traditional mail order service will get you from A to B far faster than a website like Thai Cupid, although this does clearly come at an additional cost. However, the more independent minded may prefer a site like Thai Cupid which leaves the leg work to you but asks no more commitment than the cost of your monthly subscription. If you have the time to put into your search for Thai love, we would certainly recommend you check out Thai Cupid. In fact, even those with a more comprehensive service in mind will get something out of the free standard membership which allows you to get to know a bit about Thai culture and check out the photos of thousands of beautiful Thai women!
