There are quite a few Facebook groups and there is a single dad's Bangkok do should be a single moms.

 

To be honest most of my western female friends are older from the British Club but clubs like these and Rotary are out there.

 

Men hmmmm most  (from observation) won't go near a 42 year old Thai let alone the feared and dreaded white woman!!! Hahaha

 

Do you live centrally?

Do you work?

Kid in school?

42 yo asians can look 30 and lots of foreigners are married to them.
 
 


True and my wife is older - however from observation (and I spend most of my week in Pattaya) most don't meet their partners at age 42 for the first time.

Anyway let's not derail the topic even though your point is quite interesting.

I think this a type of query for which there's no one-size-fits-all answer: so much depends on who you are; what your interests/life-styles are; the types of relationships you'd like to develop; the extent of your desire and motivation to become more involved in learning the Thai language, or participating in some aspect of Thai culture.

 

Casual acquaintances ? Good long-term friends ? Intimate companion(s) ?   Gender preference ? Hang out with ?  Party-down with ? Meditate with ? Shop with ? Trek with ?

 

There's a wealth of resources ranging from female only groups, to expat groups, to Craigslist personals, to on-line dating sites, to FaceBook groups, etc.

 

All that said, imho, the older we are, the more finding "true friends," and intimacy, is a challenge, and there is more risk involved. At the risk of "triggering" the gender-snowflakes here, imho, there is much more risk for a farang woman here, particularly with males.

 

It's been a pleasure for me that in my years on the Chiang Mai forum, I've connected with some very intelligent, literary, people, some of whom share my interests in the art history of S.E. Asia, or computer programming, creative writing, etc.

 

best wishes, ~o:37;

 

Could not have said it any better...;-)
