I can categorically tell you Bridesandlovers.com IS the best place to meet Eastern European women! You will find NO scammers... if you do happen to find any operating on the site for over 48 hours let me know and I will post myself jumping from our balcony... :laugh:

We have plenty of marriages every month... and only good reviews... compare that to the rest of the stuff out there. Of course there are always some armchair amateurs who cry scam...(especially on the OTHER stupid forum)but I'm not going to loose much sleep over a couple of muppets..

One of our latest reviews :

We are also just doing a write up with a major tabloid so more good stories to come..

I think you need to be a member for a couple days and post 5 times or so before you can send a PM. Personally I am against the concept of PM, if you can not say it on the forum in public perhaps you should not say it at all.

The OP requested a PM

pm me your ID and I will activate your membership.. :thumbsup:

However, I think he aimed the service at current and active members, not folk whose only solitary post is to complain he can't make PM contact to get the freebie.  (:)

There are some funny people out there..I upgraded this guy and wrote on his personal mail to confirm...not even an acknowledgement from him or "Thanks" "Cheers" not a thing  :laugh: but he was pretty busy the moment he was upgraded..

I only just read this thread , anyway made him free again today.. :ROFL:

He can either pay and upgrade or click the link "Manage notifications" then click "Delete my profile...I for sure will not loose any sleep over it..

For future reference unless the poster has had some posts in the forum he will not qualify for a free upgrade..

What makes bridesandlovers.com totally unique from all the rest of the crowd?

That is simple..scammers simply cannot operate on the site FULL STOP. A safe scam free dating experience.

Most of the sites out there will tell they have "This" or "That" or some "Scam control" when actually they have none! Beautiful fake women attract the punters so why remove them?

You can check out what we actively do here :

https://www.facebook.com/CupidGuardcom-1946518872238288/

Or learn more here..   www.cupidguard.com  (Web site still under semi construction)

Taking Steveboy up on his  generous offer,  I  was surprised by the activity on the  bridesandlovers site.
If you are looking for women in their mid 30s-50s this site will  definitely give you a good place to start.

What I have found is  that women from Belarus seem to be very receptive and  actively searching. 

Don't shoot the messenger, links to articles posted, don't necessarily reflect my personal opinion.

I opted to pay for a month subscription in December; give credit where credit is due, or something along those lines I suppose.....

I wasn't actively pursuing possibilities. Purely just dipping my toes in to get a sense of what to expect.
I'm only traveling to Russia later in the year due to work obligations and electronic communication in my view, is only there to set up in person introductions.

That said..... Received a message from a really nice lady in her early 30's on BridesandLovers and am now considering flying her to my country for proper introductions :)

Gets a thumbs up from me, definitely worth a look even if it wasn't free.

I wonder if I stood on the street corner and gave out free 5 ounce Gold Nuggets to people if they would take them? Or would they think it was some kind of scam or some thing... :ROFL:

I often ponder similar questions. Of course a gift can't be considered as such unless it has been received with acceptance by its recipient(s). I greatly enjoy acting generously so when my gifts are rejected I can't help but feel 'put off' and disappointed. You mustn't forget that although the beneficiary receives a tangible thing, the benefactor also receives something: satisfaction in the seizing of an opportunity to do good. If someone ever offers me free gold nuggets, I'm sure as hell taking them.

Given some time to get my act together, I might well be in touch with you Steveboy.

I didn't see that in my profile from the last time that I checked.  But, that was from quite a while ago.  :biggrin:
