Could be for many reasons ..... can you not call her?

I think you have to make 3(?) posts to see all the site menu's.

Welcome to our forum. Perhaps if you told us some of your story we might be able to provide some 'speculation-insight' for you to consider.

Welcome to the forum  :)

If this should be in the other area the Moderators can move it.

OK, I'll do that..

I went looking through Anastasia's website and i came a cross a few girls and started talking to them..
then out of nowhere i see a woman that i couldnt get my eyes off of..so i sent her a mail and we started talking and talked for 4 months......i lost my job and had to move so money was tight and i didnt talk to her again for about 3 months but when i could i sent her a mail and she said she was still single.
so we talked for another 4 months and i made plans to go see her..
we talked over the phone through the Anastasia's phone service and i got her interpreters phone number.
so..i went to Odessa to meet this woman and we did meet...we had a really good time.
at the end of our last night she told me she wanted to wait until her schooling was over and that she wanted me to wait another year for her to finish...i agreed.
so she said she wanted to see me again and gave me her email...
its been over a month and i still havnt heard from her yet..

Now..i did pay for everything..which i knew i would..,,like dinners and such..
but i asked her if she wanted me to buy her things like a new jacket and/or a new pillow and she always said she didnt want it.

Now..its been over a MONTH.....i paid the translator $20 US Dollars a hour...i have heard that they should only charge about $10 an hour..
so..now i feel that they split the 20 an hour money and they each made 10 an hour.
at this point i have no idea what to think...but i do know she has her own laptop but no internet at her house..
i am just so lost.

Yep, you’ve been scammed.

Suggest you spend a much time as possible reading everything you can here before you do anything else related to FSU women.

At a guess your lady was probably getting a cut from:

All communications via Anastasia
Your apartment
Taxis
Interpreter

If you weren’t scammed then you have to wise up to the fact that she isn’t interested in taking your relationship further. If she wanted to contact you then she would do so.

With regards her not wanting a new jacket and/or a new pillow then maybe she would have found it difficult to explain such items to her boyfriend/husband.

well....i understand that....thanks alot..
but what i dont understand is this..
Her name is NAME REMOVED BY REQUEST 
she was EVENT REMOVED BY REQUEST
LINK REMOVED BY REQUEST
she is a well known model.
she makes better money being a model then she could have gotten doing this as a scam.
i am just so damn lost...all i know is that everything i have been planning on and dreaming about for the last year is now gone....
i dont think i will ever do this again.

An off topic question, do you guys (Anglo- Saxon and FSU gals) consider this girl to be "white" based on her photos?

My guess is the answer is "no" but I prefer to ask.
