Hello there!
« on: September 22, 2018, 12:25:25 AM »
I've been reading a lot but it seems there's not much action lately in the past month.

Some thoughts:

Quite a bit of drama - some vicious.

This forum is has some pretty good advice - stuff I had to learn the hard way.

Would love to hear more trip stories.

Been to Russia and Ukraine. Looking again after a long lay off - a decade or so. My how things have changed!

Welcome to RUA!

STEVE boy is our own local drama queen, but like the old pooch we accept him anyways.

Read threads and figure out what your strategy will be. There is no correct way but lots of wrong ways to do this.

Steve in fact runs a dating match making site so he has a stable of women who might be suitable.

If you avoid the political 'discussions' you will avoid the vicious comments.
