Hello Everyone
« on: July 09, 2017, 10:38:31 AM »
Nice to meet you. I joined to hopefully learn a bit more about Russian women before I begin my quest. I have been chatting with several beautiful women over the last few months and one has really caught my eye. She is a bit younger than myself, but it seems we have much in common. And she is beautiful to boot.

I have already booked my tickets to Odessa so am excited to finally get to meet her. First time out of country and may be a bit challenging since she speaks no English, but I am optimistic.

I fly through Austria by the way. Is it a difficult airport to navigate?

Welcome,
The airport in Vienna is quite small and very easy to navigate.
Are you just planning to meet the one lady?  Maybe you could give us a bit more information about your upcoming trip. There are some very experienced members here that could give you some helpful tips.

Thank you Tom Cat. Yes, it will just be the one lady. I fell head over heels and she writes beautiful letters. She is nothing like the American women I have dated locally. I am a bit older, but she says it feels like we are from the same generation. I assume because Western pop culture was delayed while she grew up.

I have booked an apartment in the city close to everything. Prices are quite cheap in Ukraine right now! Only $24 USD per night for a decent place.

Sometimes when meeting in person there is no chemistry, and things can go south very quickly.
Have you made any backup plans ?

Not with women, but I am an IT recruiter, so planned to meet some Ukrainian developers while there. They are currently in high demand so I will do some scouting on the ground. Maybe one has a sister?

Here is the thread on the tablets of stone. Our own leslied wrote and
article back when we had to sail to Russia on ships with masts, but
most of it rings true today.

Inessa is 21 and I am 47 years old. But I look much younger than my age I am told.

Oh dear.....

Forget it, honestly. I pushed it with a 20 year age gap and all this 'I look younger than I am' stuff is platitudes and while things are still going strong, I'd definitely not recommend anyone else does it unless you're just after some rumpy-pumpy.

We were lucky since we are both super-intelligent (not saying your not), could discuss particle physics/quantum entanglement right from the get-go and she spoke A1 English from the start, but with a big age difference and no way to communicate like adults, well.....

The western culture catchup thing is bollocks, Soviet Union ended nearly 30 years ago and generally European lasses, even Eastern ones are far more free and liberal and switched on and yes, sexually open than 50 year old men from anywhere really.

We can say ' :censored: ' on TV here, everything is far more open this side of the pond.

My advice is that you will need to have a backup plan. Odessa is the marriage
industry capital of the FSU. They have an entire industry designed to make
your wallet slimmer.

You are probably pushing the envelope too far. 21 year old girls look great their
tight little bodies defy gravity but they rarely have the maturity to succeed in
an international relationship, where they have to leave all their friends and
family, their language, history and culture.

My second piece of advice is that you choose the restaurant the first 3 days
and not to go on any shopping trips and see if the girl is still interested in you.
Arrange your own taxi's, translation and airport pickup.

Did you meet this girl on a pay by the letter site?

I can give you details on how to set up a good backup plan.
I hope for your success, but I am not going to blow sunshine up your kilt.
It's not likely in my opinion.

Yes, I met her on a dating site called Anastasiadate.

We have chatted quite a bit and get along very well. Not sure why it would not work out, but plenty of women on the planet if not.

First, you are going to get a lot of advice, some very good and some
that is more dubious. Whatever you do, don't get offended and defensive.
You are relatively anonymous here and you will get some good stuff along
with the negative.

Nobody knows your own situation better than you. So sift through all the
advice and use the best and ignore the rest. Eventually somebody will come
along and beat you up a bit, just move on and don't respond. 

You do have some things going for you. You have a ticket and a plan.
Now you need a backup plan.

The worst back up plan
Mope around feeling sorry for yourself, go to the beach, get the sunburn
from hell and don't ask any of the beautiful bikini clad girls out on a date. 

The wimpy back up plan
Explore the country and learn something about it. This is always something
you do when exploring a country but not the whole plan. 

The retread backup plan.
Go meet girls that you've already delegated to second place. You want
and need a first place girl. The girls don't like being second place girls
so leave them be and meet new girls.

The Popka! back up plan
Meet attractive girls and see if you have chemistry.

Regarding AD, we have threads about them. You can search for them using
the search feature or you can ask and somebody can find them for you.

This girl might be a serious girl who really likes you (but not likely). You've
made plans to meet her so go meet her, but if you don't feel mutual
chemistry, then don't wait, launch your back up plan.

Read those two links that I posted earlier. One of them explains how to set
up a backup plan. As you read, you will have questions, come back here
and ask them.

ABOVE ALL HAVE FUN!!
If you can't have fun pursuing FSUW then you are doing it wrong!
