Thai Boys on GayRomeo

Postby Klong » Thu Apr 19, 2012 9:42 am

I have tried doing the Gay Romeo thing to find boys but my experience has not been good. They want too much money. Most want at least 2000 baht with some demanding 2500. Those fees seem to be out of the ball park in comparison to the bars. Do you have the same experience and, if not, how do you avoid these higher fees?

When I was single and used GR I NEVER paid the guys I met anything. I made it clear before ever even meeting that I was not looking for a money boy. I did have many repeaters.

That was then, now GR is just another gogobar with still pics instead of live dancing. Well 90% (99%) of them.
Having a nice online chat/messages is impossible, because it is all Hi and yes and maybe and I am 18 (but looks 25+).
They never read your profile and mine is even translated correctly in Thai and the few who do read do not respond, because it says clearly no moneyboys, just friends and maybe relationship.

Are you sure you weren't looking in the escorts section?

I never ask them how much they want. If it's a money boy, instead I tell them my offer, tell them whether I'm looking for short time or long time, and tell them I'll also pay their taxi fare going and coming. They either accept it or they don't. If they do, fine. If not, I move on to the next one. I almost never have a boy reject my offer. The amount I offer is my affair, but I do offer them a reasonable amount and it's a lot less than any 2000 baht.

By the way, if you're curious about why I offer taxi fare since I have a car, most of the time the boys live in South Pattaya or Jomtien. I live far enough away from both that I'd rather just pay for them to come by motorbike taxi.

I would be willing to bet I could still do it the same way, but, fortunately, I won't have to try out my theory.

An increasingly more frequent event on Gay Romeo is that many of the boys are connected to the site by smartphone, while they are working at Go Go Bars or Beer Bars. I have had a few leave work, come over, and try to get back before the mamasan cared they were gone.

Cyberboys are always connected!

I agree you must be in the escort section. I have seen a lot of boys from GR and the price has either been free(rarely) or 1000 baht. Many times they never mention money but I assume they need it and I'm happy to pay them 1000 baht. I am rarely disappointed now after lots of practice .

as above-do not use the escort section.
There also seems to be quite a diff between Pattaya and BKK-and elsewhere. In PTY most seem to be bar/massageboys anyway, hooking up more visits or contacts.
I have read various reports-also of not too young people, they had made several all free and happy contacts via GR-in bigtown BKK. Sometimes very, very secretive or hidden.

The initial figure they quote is almost always negotiable, even if you're in the escorts section. Of course they're going to start off with a high figure but as soon as you politely decline they will almost always come back and ask how much you can pay. You then make an offer and it's up to them if they accept or not.

That hasn't been my experience at all. I still find it easy enough to get in touch with "regular" Thai guys on Gay Romeo. Neither do they demand any money, nor do I offer any payment. In some cases, a real friendship has developed, and I'm still friends with some of the Gay Romeo guys I chatted with 6-7 years ago. Sure, it does happen from time to time that I chat up a guy who then tells me that he's a money boy. I'm not interested, but I think that's no big deal as long as they're upfront about it, some will take their offer and others won't. They know that.

The only real difference I've noticed on Gay Romeo over the years -- and I'm not happy about it at all -- is that an increasing number of guys indicate on their profiles or while chatting that they're looking for "high sex" (sex on drugs).

Granted, I'm mostly talking about Bangkok and I do realize that things are somewhat different in Pattaya. But even for Pattaya, 90% money boys seems too high.
