Question about cell service Ukraine and other questions
« on: December 10, 2019, 07:54:19 AM »
So I'm writing to this Ukrainian woman through Russian-personals.com for the past week. She says she has a cell phone but has to go to an internet cafe to write me. All her emails are always attached with photos - a mix of professional photos and a few casual photos. Shouldn't her cell service have some sort of data service? Is this a red flag?

Waiting for a cell phone number.

And...

She emailed me a week ago responding to my initial message and introductions that included my email address. I actually wrote a number of women with my email as an initial introduction but I don't remember her. I mean she's quite stunning and I'd remember writing her. Can't find her profile or photo or see her message as an outgoing message.

I'm thinking that one of the fake profiles I messaged decided to respond with another much hotter picture and identity all together. 

I'm not really taking this correspondence too seriously since I have so many concerns about it. Well maybe a 2% hope that it is real.

Dump it ..

What women today has to go to the internet cafe to send you a message .. it is the 21st Century  not 1985! What sort of phone has this women got .. :laugh: Don't tell me a monologue black and white phone!

What do you really expect in Ukraine?? If your already doing this shit and having conversations with scammers and asking other people for advice your already on the road to rack and ruin!!

Try another country you may have more luck and you may be surprised the women will probably have internet access via their phone like the rest of the world!

Internet cafe!  :ROFL:

Ooh, its like 2007 all over again. I haven't heard that one in years. See below.

Waiting for a cell phone number.

Read >>this<<. As that was written 12 years ago, and we all have smartphones with internet nowadays, read it as "telephone and internet".

You'll not get a number.

Don't send money to this person.

First of all Steveboy - thank you for the free months of membership - you are the man. Unfortunately two weeks after you gave me the freebie I met someone locally and started a year long relationship.

So now back into the Russian/Ukrainian search.

I've been to Ukraine and had two wonderful relationships with genuine and lovely women. One ended because I was young and a guy (stupid) and one ended because I started a relationship here stateside. But the latter, I totally regret and think what could have been.

Yes, this present correspondence has too much proper English fluency to be real. But it's an exercise in recreational fiction writing really. The photos are quite stunning but I do know better.

For someone who has sent me over 18 photos with the first few emails and didn't take any pictures of their birthday just a few weeks ago is just silly.

Pro-dater, or she's simply having fun but totally not serious about finding a husband.
