Hello there
« on: October 10, 2017, 11:55:54 AM »
Hi,

I guess I should introduce myself like so many others done, I am a divorced 46 year from Sweden, have been to Russia and Belarus a couple of times in business. I have to admit that I like so many other have been blinded by the sheer femininity and beautiful woman there. So when I got my divorced finalized this spring I decided it was time to look for someone new to send the rest of the life with, and why not look over the Baltic sea and see if anyone there would suit me.
I have been looking at some datingsites and talked to a few ladies, but until I was properly divorced I never took action.
I spent some days here just looking and reading, and think it was time to register.
so Hello!

I have discovered that there is a wast difference in opinions, and as many opinions as there are available ladies in the designated countries  :nod:
I am fortunate to live close by, just applied for a business visa to Russia to be able to come and go as I please.
Will try and find a good site for this endeavour, any recommendations?
When I look through the forum, it seems to be as many recommending as warnings about just about every site.
Only a couple I know to stay away from, adate and the one advertising here seems to be the worst of the worst  ;D

When I look through the forum, it seems to be as many recommending as warnings about just about every site.

I would avoid the pay per view pay per letter sites and pay
to chat sites. It's too tempting for the agencies to pay their
translators to send out letters pretending to be the hot girls.

There are a number of free sites, pay by the month or year
sites and various social networking and local dating sites.
The sites that were highly recommended back when I was
searching aren't as good now.

I do recommend staying away from the "MOB industry" in
Odessa, Nikolaev and Kiev. This industry is designed to work
your wallet rather than to help you find a future Mrs addkock.

Note: if you have local contacts in those cities, then I rescind
that advice. Locals contacts and information can steer you
though the piranha infested waters.   

Since you have business in Russia it would make the most
sense to concentrate your efforts there since there are
millions and millions of unmarried Russian woman AND
you travel there anyway.

There are no perfect sites even the best sites can have
some scammers if you keep your wits about you then
you can probably sort them out. If you find a girl that
 
I hope that some of the more recently single guys can point
you to the best sites these days.

There are two schools of thought regarding pursuing FSUW.
Visit many or visit one. Excellent arguments can be made for
each strategy, but usually one or the other fits your personality
and your situation better.

If you decide that you want to engage in a visit one strategy,
you write a bunch of letters, sorting and sifting till you find
one girl and then you get to know the girl a bit from afar and
then go visit her and only her. When you employ this strategy
you should have a backup plan. You don't know if you will have
mutual chemistry or not until you lay eyes on each other.

The other strategy is to visit many. You don't use visit one
tactics. You write one letter at the most two to several girls
and ask her out for tea or coffee. When you meet the girl
you judge whether you have mutual chemistry and whether
the girl is an excellent match or not.

Never ask a girl on a second date if she isn't an excellent
match. If you have a hole in your schedule don't ask a
non match girl on a second date, find a new girl instead.

Never ask a girl on a second date JUST because she is
smoking hot. A lot of guys do this because they want her
to come around or will overlook other short comings.

Never compromise on character.

That's all I have time for now.

Udachi!

Bill
