    Is free membership in TF still usable?

    I match with quite a lot of ladies (I don't go for the 20-26 babies) 27-50 mark.
    Interesting comment regarding being a free member. When I first started ThaiFriendly in 2016-2017, the free membership was enough. I could contact about 95% of the girls and the 10 minute delay was not a problem. But, in about 2019 TF changed things and about 95% of the girls became listed as "popular member" and I was forced to become a paid member to contact them. I bought a 90-day membership in early 2020. Since then I've made multiple free TF IDs, but all of them have the same limits and I can only contact a few uglies. I'm also interested in the older ladies (40-50).

    Are some people still getting effective use from the free membership? I can only view profiles for free, I must pay to contact the desirable ones.

    Exactly the point I was trying to make: a futile task.

    I'm assuming you're talking about girls with above average looks, well these girls get quite a LOT of messages on a daily basis. Weed-out the guys that message about the size of their dicks and wanting video sex calls or just asking for sex on first message.

    These girls ask pretty quick: Where you from and where you live. If you don't live in their area or near their area? They're not investing time and efforts.

    While you're juggling with 10 20 conversations, they have hundreds of guys messaging, especially on TF where you don't need to match to send a message.

    I am disappointed but not in the least surprised about the limitations of the November 1st reopening. Instead of 10 plus countries promised quarantine free entry there will be only five on the list: Britain, the United States, Germany, China and Singapore. That closes the door for a quick tour in November.

    Possibly good news is that COE is being replaced by an app that should / could be simpler to use.

    Living in Bangkok is certainly an advantage. I used to spend 10-15 weeks a year in Thailand back in 2012-2017 but now trying to keep girls interested from other side of the globe is a futile task. During past two years almost 20 percent of my hundred or so WG Line contacts have either moved back to family homes or had babies or just plain disappeared. I should get my boots on the ground again.

    The key to success is patience, it takes quite a few days / weeks of chat to set up the story you want and meet them in a setting that leads to bed. It's worth it in the end for me.

    Tinder is also one that I have had success with but a lot more LBs and Pros there. Girls right away ask for your LineID, and send you pictures, prices, services.

    Badoo is also good but you need to really be patient before you find something you might like.

    As I said, I like girls with experience, no young puppies. As a local though, the downside is that some girls really get attached once you take them out and have sex.
    Yes, I do pretty well with TF and Tinder too. I still say a lot of TF girls are no longer in the area their profile says they live and are only going to chat chat chat into infinity but not meet due to Covid fears. But the ones who are actually IN Bangkok where I live are game. Just have to video chat and meet where escape is easy to avoid as much shock and regret as possible.

    Badoo, on the other hand, has been a complete waste of time for me. After thousands of profile clicks by me and rejections by me of others, I have not connected with one lady from Badoo in the 6-7 months that I have had a "Lifetime" membership (3,000 baht, one time). Oh, I could meet a lot if fat old ladies or chat forever with better looking ones who live in Chiang Mai. LOL. But so far I have not made a connection with 1 doable lady who actually lives within 100 km of me and is up for being done by me.

    That has shit to do with shit. I am in the Dominican Republic where no test or vaccine is required to enter. Ain't a myriad of tourists coming here spreading covid around or falling out in the street and needing the government to care for them because they did not get the covid insurance. It is the same in Colombia. These folks are dummies.

    Even with inside information, it's a crapshoot. The Thai government will respond according to how COVID progresses and nobody knows how COVID will progress. We also dont know how customers and workers will respond to whatever future health may become.

    No idea about the reasons, I can only speculate. Perhaps it has to do with demographics, average age in Thailand rose from 35 in 2010 to 40 in 2020, so there are fewer young women. For me, 40 is when the good and cuteness looks of most Thai women decline, although there are exceptions. snip.
    I feel the same about the decline of TF. Up to 2017 I was still able to harvest few Line IDs of working girls but converting TF ladies to bed companions has not worked for me after that. I tried WeChat in 2019 but got replies mostly from tall ladies with big hands. I have used past 15 months building up my Facebook friend list but like you said, aside from obvious bar girls the interest of the younger generation in farangs seem to have waned considerably. I use fake pictures in my FB account so it is not due me being bald, 40 kg overweight, miserable old man.

    I have ten times more Messenger activity with young FB friends from Philippines than from Thailand. Maybe it is also a language barrier issue.

    By now you should know to read that quote more carefully "consider allowing" are the key words. Nothing is set in stone until the Royal Gazette prints it and it can all change in an instant, like it has been in the past year with everything they say. Clearly this is a marketing ploy because there is absolutely no mention to what happens to vaccinated arrivals who test positive after they land. This has been the case since Thailand reopened their airports. People testing negative on departure, but positive on arrival. Imagine the backlash when they do, do not carry insurance (like backpackers), and get forced quarantined even if they are fully vaccinated and have no symptoms, and are forced to pay out of pocket. And they aren't even sick.

    Yes, I am with you on the fact that things can change in an hour. That is why I posted the report without comment, just FYI to anyone looking for positive signs.

    But sometimes there are enough bits and pieces of mounting evidence that some of these entertainment venue owners, operators and interests have been tipped off about a move that is more firm than usual even before it is made available for public consumption.

    I have mentioned signs of life in terms of renovation and sprucing up of some go-go bars and beer bars lately. Well, this week I am seeing more of it.

    And I dare say it appears to me there are several more restaurants and "entertainment venues" in the area (not go-go bars yet) that juuuust might be jumping the gun on the moves cited in that report by 3-7 weeks as though they don't expect much hassle or penalty at all for their eagerness to get up and running.

    Btw, "marketing" for what if it isn't for travelers and tourists to start firing up to book flights and rooms on the premise that there will be plenty for them to do and spend money on when they arrive other than time in a quarantine hotel or hospital care and medical staff?

    All marketing

    "By Dec 1, we will also consider allowing the consumption of alcoholic beverages in restaurants as well as the operation of entertainment venues under appropriate health precautions to support the revitalization of the tourism and leisure sectors, especially the new year period," Prayut said.

    By now you should know to read that quote more carefully "consider allowing" are the key words.

Imagine the backlash when they do, do not carry insurance (like backpackers), and get forced quarantined even if they are fully vaccinated and have no symptoms, and are forced to pay out of pocket. And they aren't even sick.

    "Another problem with the program has been the policy requiring that travelers who test positive, or who are traveling with someone who tests positive, be transferred from their hotel to a health care facility and kept in strict quarantine for up to 14 days at their own expense. This has led to the mandatory quarantine of tourists who were sitting near an infectious passenger on their flight to Phuket."

    PM sets Nov 1 for reopening to foreign tourists from low-risk countries

    Alcohol sales, other entertainment venues to be allowed by Dec 1.
    PUBLISHED: 11 OCT 2021.
    https://www.bangkokpost.com/business...risk-countries
    Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said on Monday that he will push for the opening up of the country to fully vaccinated foreign tourists from at least 10 countries on Nov 1, as the government earlier planned.

    Gen Prayut said in a nationally televised broadcast that fully vaccinated tourists from at least 10 low-risk countries would be allowed to enter Thailand by air with no quarantine requirements.

    The prime minister named the United Kingdom, Singapore, Germany, China and the United States among the first group of countries to benefit from the move.

    "I have instructed the CCSA and the Ministry of Public Health to urgently consider within this week to allow, as of Nov 1, international visitors to enter Thailand without any requirement for quarantine if they are fully vaccinated and arrive by air from low-risk countries," he said.

    He pledged to open the gates for more countries by Dec 1 and targeted others by Jan 1.

    Tourists from countries not on the low-risk list would be allowed but they would be required to quarantine, he added.

    The announcement came after other countries including Singapore and Australia eased travel restrictions for their citizens to travel overseas.

    Gen Prayut hoped the decision to open up the country next month would draw foreign tourists to Thailand over the next three months, including the forthcoming year-end holidays.

    They would revitalise the sector and related businesses that involved millions of people in the country, he went on.

    The government had earlier planned to open only Bangkok and several provinces for foreign tourists on Nov 1. The other provinces are Chon Buri (Pattaya city, Bang Lamung district, and Sattahip district), Phetchaburi (Cha-am district), Prachuap Khiri Khan (Hua Hin district) and Chiang Mai (Muang, Mae Taeng, Mae Rim and Doi Tao districts).

    Monday's announcement indicated that the reopening would cover all parts of the country.

    The announcement came after the country saw the number of fatalities drop below 100 in recent days, with new cases hovering around 10,000.

    Although the situation was improving in most parts of Thailand, a surge of new infections continued in Narathiwat, Pattani, Songkhla and Yala. The southern border provinces were in the spotlight of health authorities who were mulling additional measures to clamp down on the spike in the areas.

    Tourism was the main sector driving the economy before the pandemic floored the industry last year. The sector accounted for about 20% of gross domestic product if both local tourists and foreign arrivals were counted. Revenue from foreign tourists alone was about 15% of GDP, as the country welcomed almost 40 million travellers from abroad, especially Chinese.

    The Bank of Thailand estimated only 200,000 foreign arrivals this year with the number jumping to 6 million next year.

    Restrictions eased for alcohol sales

    The prime minister said the government will allow restaurants and other places to sell alcohol by Dec 1 to promote tourism and the entertainment sector as people plan to celebrate the new year.

    "By Dec 1, we will also consider allowing the consumption of alcoholic beverages in restaurants as well as the operation of entertainment venues under appropriate health precautions to support the revitalisation of the tourism and leisure sectors, especially the new year period," he said.
