Having more time on my hands than usual, I recently opened up new accounts on grindr,
Blued and Hornet. After experiencing a no show, I realized need more preparation if I
attempted further meetings. My no show never bothered to explain and the next day wanted
to set up another meeting. I told him that I only saw a face photo and wanted to see body photo.
He said no. He said he didn’t have good body. I told him I was only interested in good bodies.
He replied ‘whatever’. Seemed like something a farang would say when being criticized.

A second experience with a 23 y.o. Colombian sexy lonely bottom which went no where except
in circles. After a few days, I gave up and started to think why would a sexy Latin guy be
looking for sex with much older, and much less fit farangs. What is a 23 y.o. gay latino
doing in Pattaya? He wrote he was walking not working. Doesn’t make sense and he wouldn’t respond to my polite queries as to what he was looking for etc.
All this and a couple more, led to to think that old farangs were playing games and pretending to
be young sexy guys looking for old guys.
A farang acquaintance told me his story of pretending to be a young hot sexy Russian gay man.
He claimed to have found sexy photos and created a fake persona. He claimed a multitude of
Farangs and Thais responded. Some money boys offered themselves for free.
I found this story disturbing and wondered why the farang would relate such a story.
After all, he wasted a lot of people’s time and mind fucked them as well. This farang was creepy
and very unattractive, downright ugly in fact.
It’s possible this same farang created the young Latino and others. Really sad and totally fucked up.
I’m curious to know if anyone met the young Latino or experienced any fake personas.

Willie willie maybe the guys you mentioned after viewing your profile and giving it some thought just couldn’t see themselves going with, yes they are sex workers but they also are human!

No, I think williewillie is right, there have always been fakers and keyboard wankers on these platforms, even when I started using them in the West more than 20 years ago. Put in a charitable way, these platforms allow these guys to be whoever they want to be - as long as they can avoid meeting in real life.

Nowadays in Thailand, my solution is very simple: Move the conversation to Line early on and have a video chat ASAP. Problem solved.

... keyboard wankers ....

thank you for a good laugh, " keyboard wankers " , that's funny

 

If everything else fails there's still an option of moving conversation to a bar table and seeing boy eye to eye and feeling him knee to knee

Invariably if the person wants to chat endlessly on line, I assume it's fake and move on. After all, time is precious and I'm not looking for pen friends

I have sometimes taken a peek on apps before visiting the country but my experience is that chatting a long time often leads to an anti-climax of one sort or another

Some months ago I saw a very promising picture on hornet (which I later found out was from privatboymovie) and started chatting, and when I asked for Line ID I got reply "I don't give Line to strangers" which was the end of the chat for me because everyone remotely interested in meeting would give out his Line.

 

I try to keep chat short, for me "sex yes/no, where, when" would be enough, but have to do a bit more, but try to find out what the other party is looking early on.

I agree. I look them up before I go and, in the past, chatted to them as well. I found this didn't work as they got too clingy and wanted to meet the minute I arrived. No time to look around. Creepy.

So now I look before, make a list, and talk AFTER arriving and only then make arrangements to meet.

Seems to work.

I think they also post prolifically on another forum!!

We have to distinguish two cases:

 

People who are only looking for entertainment at the cost of others,

and people who use pictures that are not their own to attract more chat partners (and in the end want to meet someone for sex/friend/boyfriend).

 

I fell for the second several times, the last just today. If there is only one profile picture that looks too good to be true, ask for more pictures, and the profile owner even admitted that the profile picture is not his. That leaves only the question: where can I meet the boy in the profile picture?

I tend to use the apps less and less and the same goes for gogo bars where you frequently are the only customer (or one of the very few) present and the constant staring of the boys at you in hoping for you to pick them make me feel uncomfortable.  The same  goes for the once every 3 minute question of  the mamasan which boy I like and if I have made a choice. It is just not a relaxing atmosphere.

 

My main two methods for getting boys now are:

1) Bar (Jomtien, Sunee): you can see the boy in real life (no need to trust picture in app), you can chat with him, there is no pressure, a relax atmosphere. This is my preferred method. Besides the drinks are cheap compared to a gogo bar.

2) Massage places

If I lived in bkk, I think this would be a good method.  Time is your side.  But as a visitor, I tried the apps on a few trips and found myself spinning my wheels and sacrificing precious time without success.  At this point, I may take a quick look at what's on offer but don't respond to any unless they appear to be close by.  If they don't want to meet for coffee or drink, I don't pursue conversation. I set a 3-4 minute limit for the back-and-forth before I thank them for chatting and move on.. 

 

If I'm within a 5-minute walk of Surawong and Twilight, it's an easy decision.
