Family: Take an interest in her family and friends, these people are the core of her life, and yours now.
Presents & affection: Do buy her presents and tell her you love her at frequent intervals. Thai woman can become a little insecure at times and need constant reassurance.
Money: Don't be mean with your cash. You'll be labeled kee niaw(cheap)
Infidelity: Don't cheat on her. You'll never here the end of it!
Bawdiness: Don't be rude or flirtatious, you'll be seen as a playboy. Not a trait held in high esteem by Thai women.
Ridicule: Don't ridicule her lack of knowledge about worldly affairs. Thais by nature aren't very serious people.
Parents: Never ridicule or say anything that's not courteous about her family, this will be considered as an attack on her as well.
Monarchy: Don't ridicule the monarchy in any way. This will instantly lose you friends and respect.
Talking: Don't raise your voice too much when conversing with her or anyone else. It's considered rude and boring.
In the bedroom: Don't expect her simply to jump into bed on the first date. Thais tend to be more conservative than their western counterparts.
Directness: Honesty isn't always the best policy. And directness such as saying what's on your mind is considered bad etiquette in Thailand. Indirectness and subtlety is the key for avoiding conflicts.
Thailand & Society: Don't moan and complain about Thailand and all things Thai. Your girl will be well aware of Thailand's shortcomings, she definitely won't need you to keep pointing them out.
Lastly, remember even if you make the odd mistake when dating in Thailand. Most Thais will usually take into account that you're a foreigner, and allow you some leeway.
