The other study into Thai women in Holland conducted by the student doing a Ph D course at Leiden University focuses on the tension caused within marriages between Thai women and Dutch men caused by obligations taken on by Thai wives after they move with their husbands to Holland.
M/s Suksomboon cites as an example one Thai woman returning with her Dutch husband to her family in North Eastern Thailand.
Never empty your glass – You might be shaking like a leaf and nothing would settle your nerves more than to knock back the glass of wine on your table, but trust me, it’s not worth it.
If you want to stay in control of the date and keep him interested then take it easy and don’t overindulge.
If your date becomes your boyfriend then there will be plenty of opportunities for both of you to let your hair down.
But a guy will most likely be a little scared if you knock back a few shots before dinner.
There are now well over 10,000 Thai women from Thailand who are living in Holland, most of them married to Dutch men.
Think carefully about inviting us back after a first date – Yes, we might well ask you but that doesn’t necessarily mean we want you to say yes.
A kiss on your doorstep is enough to reassure us that you are interested but if you invite us in for the night we will start to wonder if this happens to every guy you date.
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.
