Hello everyone,

As you may tell, my name is Jeremy(or maybe not) haha.

I am new here and looking forward to things I may learn from this and have always been curious about Ukrainian/Russian women and am potentially looking to see if this thing truly works without the so called "mail order brides".

I look forward to speaking with all of you and to what I can learn from this.

Hi Jeremy welcome to RUA. First, never use your real name on forums. Next, don't post photos of yourself or your family. What goes on the Internet never comes off.

Have fun and ask questions but don't believe everything you hear on forums.

Probably good advice, but one CAN control who see's your images - and I don't give a hoot who knows my name.

The best part is when a member gives their 'informed opinion' of one's lifestyle and simply demonstrates how clueless they are to those who really know the score  :chuckle:

Welcome, Jeremy

Thank you for the tips.

I don't recall posting pictures of myself, does it show that I did? I'm confused in that aspect.

Hey Luke,

I am from the US. I am looking to see what comes of potentially looking for a woman outside of the US which does bring up a discussion that I would love to ask input from all members(or whomever reads this).

From your(or anyones experience who has traveled) experience, would you say that European women are more loyal and non-judgemental or would you say that it completely depends on the women themself?

Some are better and some are worse. The important thing is that you could marry a girl with "qualifications" far exceeding what your locals have to offer. What happens after they find that they have sold themselves short is another matter.

Thank you for your input Tom!

May I ask, is this where you found your wife? I would definitely be interested in a few of your tips.

I do appreciate everything.

The better question I may have, do you know what European women would consider as being sold short?

What they find useful or beneficial in a partner, what they don't like or find helpful/beneficial in a partner.

Jeremy, I never said you posted photos, I said it's a good policy not to post photos of yourself on the Internet and on forums such as this. Nor is it a good idea to give out too much information about where you live.

Manny has done so in the past and found himself with some unwanted admirers.  :hidechair:

What they find useful or beneficial in a partner, what they don't like or find helpful/beneficial in a partner.

Generally, they like their men to be literate. Since the first impression is usually made through written communication, men should be careful about spelling and grammar. Having financial strength and not being mostly dead already are pluses, of course.

I met my wife on this forum but that is not the norm because men tend to spew like jackasses when there is a degree or two of perceived separation.

Welcome to RUA

You are discussing the element of women. Around the world they have the same basic qualities but on different continents there is a variation in flavours. To make a generalization is about the same as making a blanket statement about a vehicle with four tires and a combustion motor.

My expierence is Slavic women are intelligent and highly educated, they tend to be loyal and very determined in there opinions. Meaning it is better to go around the mountain than trying to move it.

For your time on RUA, if not already said so spend some time reading the Trip/Travel Reports. Different reports often describe the variety of 'techniques' that one can employ to prosecute your search. Do not ignore the 'Train Wrecks'

Ask questions, such as you have, and you will sometimes hear a variety of of replies. Consider the replies and apply what works well in your situation.
