Visit One? Visit many? Something else?
« on: April 01, 2019, 06:52:08 PM »
There have been many a discussion on this so I thought I would put
a poll together one it.

You can vote twice

If you think of something that I've missed please let me know

FSUW are not for entry level daters. FSUW don't do vague FSUW like a man of action so be a man of action  If you find a promising girl, get your butt on a plane. There are a hundred ways to be successful and a thousand ways to f#ck it up
Kiss the girl, don't ask her first.
Get an apartment not a hotel. DON'T recycle girls

Leaving Russia is not an emigration, rather an evacuation.

Out of voting for two one was I voted something else, please explain.

Guys should be flexible and make adjustments to their strategy depending on situations.

Guys shouldn't spend months writing only one woman only to learn after the $5000 first date it won't work out. There should be options and VM should be an option. VM gives a guy more options but if he determines a woman is quality over the rest, he can go see only her but have a backup plan.

I've spent lots of phone time before visiting any woman. It has  big benefits over Skype. A guy, if he has the ability, should learn compatibility before visiting a woman. He should write many to find a woman thrilled to hear his voice anytime he calls. After establishing the woman would be a good candidate to spend his life with, he should visit her but have lots of backup plans just in case things don't work out on the first date.

Although we may feel a woman is the ONE, there are two that have to agree and the woman may not like the man visiting. The man gets dumped and go crying in his hotel/apartment room. But if he had a backup plan, he could pick up the phone and make some calls. If he uses Mamba, he can get a date same day he messages women. The best way to forget about a woman is being with another woman.

Some guys lives are dominated with loneliness. Some guys always have a woman in their life. It's your choice on what kind of life you want to live.

Only BillyB and andrewfi would still utter the words mamba ( both have done so in the last 24 hours )  in 2019 and demonstrate their 'expertise' in dating sites that are popular in Russia, now

I guess it also depends on whether or not one measures engagement in days, months or years.  Irina and I dated each other for three years before we got married.  Our first "date" was in Rome and occurred six months after we first started chatting with each other.  If we didn't like each other there was still Rome to see.
What is worse than not being able to get what you don't even want?

Only BillyB and andrewfi would still utter the words mamba ( both have done so in the last 24 hours )  in 2019 and demonstrate their 'expertise' in dating sites that are popular in Russia, now

I used it as an example because as one of the largest international dating sites in the world it is well known to many people. Perhaps you might have another favourite site for your adventures when you get a Russian visa. Please share your online dating expertise with us, we can all learn by sharing, yes?

Here's a helper for you moby: when trying to help people it makes life easier to use things that are familiar when illustrating a point. Of course, if one is showing off rather then trying genuinely to help, then one does as you do.
...everything ends always well; if it’s still bad, then it’s not the end!

Website rankings have been linked elsewhere. Mamba is the #1 dating website and overall #2 app in Russia. You, on the other hand think that means nothing.

I see you are telling people here where you met your fiancee which is different than at other place where you said you met her on Mamba. It seems you forgot where you met her or is this part of your compulsive lying act?

Think you'd better check your 'sources'

Poor, BillyB

He has joined the club of those who know more about my life than I do ;))

YES, I found Sveta's profile on dating sites - including Mamba .. Her profile there was over a year old and not been logged into for over a year ( in the case of mamba) ....THAT ( 'finding her unused profile) was five years ago ( 2014)

As, you KEEP being told ... Time has moved on and I'd not recommend mamba or elenasmodels in 2019  - in the same way I'd not recommend the site were I met  / found V 13 years ago

Sveta said that mamba was no longer a serious site and guys were just lucking for quick sex  ..

Hopefully, your experience is nearly 11 years ago ...
