Whether this is because Thai women are increasing in popularity, or whether they are becoming increasingly web savvy, isn't clear. It's a great thing though, and many fruitful relationships materialise through this way of meeting.
I personally know a number of couples who've met through online dating, and a number of single, English-speaking Thai women active on these sites.
That said, you should be as cautious about the online dating process in Thailand as you would in your own country.
