Thailand is still very much open to international dating as young Thai men and women seek friends
Young people in Thailand across, all age groups and levels of society, are currently seeking international friendship across the world as the COVID-19 pandemic has decimated the kingdom's economy, in particular by cutting off its massive tourism industry.
Foreign men are still looking for love in Thailand despite the pandemic and in many cases perhaps because of it in western countries.
Across the world in Thailand, things have all changed with the demise since 2020 of the Thai sex industry catering for foreign tourists as mass tourism to the kingdom ceased almost overnight on the 5th April 2020 when Thailand closed its skies to international flights.
Economic contraction in Thailand has hit educated young Thais
However, the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 virus has sparked a widespread downturn in Thailand as the worst economic contraction in recent history has caused poverty levels in the Southeast Asian country to surge.
It has also stymied many ambitious young Thais, men and women, with skills and an education who aspire to greater things, to seek new opportunities.
This has led to a movement among young adults in Thailand who are seeking to emigrate abroad.
Many are college-educated and many are also Thai women and men who are seeking friendships and relationships abroad as well as economic opportunities and further education.
US-China tensions mirrored in pro-democracy movements
The COVID-19 crisis in Thailand is also linked with rising tensions between the United States and China which has seen pro democracy groups emerge not only in Thailand but also in Asia which are also pro American.
Younger Thais have become more pro-western in the last decade as many young people see the radical changes in western countries in terms of women and minority rights as an attraction and a promise of better opportunity. On the other hand, anti-Asian feeling in the United States and some parts of Europe in 2020 and 2021 have raised concerns that they need friends and social support before planning their new life abroad.
Young Thais wants a life built on western values
Today's young people in Thailand are looking more and more to western countries for inspiration and as a template for how life should be lived including respect for others and key principles such as freedom of expression, individual liberty and equality.
This of course would include Thailand's own traditions and culture which hardly conflict with western ideals centred on personal freedom and responsibility.
