"I am just stating the sad truth. Truth hurts. As far as women are concerned, then read the article about the horror stories. A woman should ask herself, what would a man want with a woman he can’t even converse with? Scary thought but just a thought. It is true, internet dating attracts many psychopaths. Does that mean that there are no decent men on those sites – of course not. And there are plenty of well meaning, decent women on dating sites. It is like a game of poker, a few lucky ones strike Royal Flushes, some are lucky to find two pairs, most can’t even get a pair or even Ace high, and some unfortunate sucker gets cleaned out by a hustler.
The bottom line is that foreign men need to screw their head on straight if they’re going to attempt to date a woman or a girl who hails from the former Soviet Union. The difference of ideology and the cultural difference and the difference in how genders from either country even perceive the opposite sex in their own country, is dramatic. Most foreign men are incapable of comprehending a Russian/Ukrainian girl/woman and her mind-set, let alone even being able to identify with her. If you’re going to date a Russian or Ukrainian female, then you better immerse yourself into that culture beforehand. Otherwise, you’re in for a lot of disappointment(s).
The other thing is that foreign men seem to think that Russian/Ukrainian girls are inexperienced and naïve or at least, not as aware or knowledgeable or worldly experienced as foreigners. Nothing could be further from the truth. Girls from the former Soviet Union are clever, extremely intelligent, forthright, unabashed, talented and wary. To put it mildly, you need to be on top of your game if you’re ever going to have any chance of enticing one to commit to a long-term relation with you.
And lastly, foreign guys in particular, seem to think that Russian and Ukrainian girls are “easy pickings” and that all you need to do is select any one of a multitude of super-model like beauties in their twenties and that are found in every city, town and village of Russian and/or Ukraine, and your troubles will all be over. First, what would a 50 year old foreign man have in common with a 20 year old Russian/Ukrainian girl? Ditto for a 60 year old and a 30 year old. Believe me, there isn’t anything either of you can or even could share over the long-term, except money. So, keep in mind that age disparity will turn into something that you’ll eventually regret; if not sooner, then definitely you will later.
A word to the wise: Before attempting a relationship with a girl or woman who hails from Russia or Ukraine, immerse yourself completely in that culture for quite a while before testing the water; Travel to Russia and Ukraine and be a part of what you’re wanting to take away from those countries [which is a citizen of those countries]; And have realistic expectations, which means that if you’re average and of average means and if you’re beyond 35 years of age, then search for a woman who is close to your age and who is from a modest region of either country."
anatasiadate.com is a scam site. You are most likely chatting with a paid site operator. Here is a review of the site:

The girls are real yes and you can make arrangements to meet .I been to the Ukraine more than once .I used the site yes the girls are real but they don't right the letters its done by tranlaters who work there I did meet with lady's and the take a picture with you and you pay for the translators time don't pay in cash pay the site .But the catch is the girl don't want to meet you.She is pissed she had to.She hates you .Some can act nice .Before you go they act like they are into you and so in love . Than you get there and they are not the slightest bit interested . It's so obvious they school them on your letters prior to the date.The girls are thair inventory they are told not to get involved with you .The translators is thair to make sure of that and the scam goes on. I even seen one no sooner than are dated ended no sooner do I see her walking down the street had in hand with her real boyfriend. I also got more than friendly with a couple local hookers who filled me in and showed me there profiles on the site .Basically MOBs are hookers with a opption to buy so you'd be far better off just trolling Kiev for hookers because they are the same thing .
"I want to check if this user is sincere or a scammer."
A devochka. On the infamous pay-per-letter site 'Anastasia Date'. From Nikolaev. Born 1996!
Anastasia have even promoted her profile on Facebook for men to leave their lecherous remarks: https://goo.gl/AEmhnd
El Nino, you are fantasising. Try starting again, by writing to some women here - with private e-mail addresses (NOT agency girls).
Their messages will be nothing like the guff you have become accustomed to on Anastasia - because the letters there are not written by the girls in the profiles. If you don't believe me, find their profiles on VK or FB and ask them (but don't expect most to reply).
hi .... just met a girl from Kiev yesterday did an interview Anastasiadate to work with, very interesting to know of it ...... ..... Here is a summary anastasiadate has many pretty girls who borrow theyr photographs (most of them do not speak any English), then the owner of the agency to get some smart girls, is generally able to speak good English or French .... then these girls are behind the PC chat with men (men pay per minute) at the end, write down on paper all the information about the talk they had to remember the issues .... when a man asks the video chat pretty girl behind the move PC hands, but not in the chat, the smart girl doing for her and the same for the phone call, talking to men smart enough to not .... so its taste 1 smart girl have to worry about some girls beautiful ..... most of them are married or have babies there is to find a man. ..... I'd say that's what I've heard about worster dating site .... the police should close these websites .......! Im in online dating for 20 years as a user does, all the same shit ..... now be founded a good, a dating site travel .... http://www.anastasiadatingapp.com having 1-2 mounths of life so is still not crowded but girls are checked 1 1 with a photo with the poster with the name of the site ... and your pic visible to all .... it is very important couse else says some girls are verified but then the pictures of Jennifer Lopez and Pamela Anderson are ..... name your travelhostdate.com, there are many Italian so I guess is Italian but I have to say very good graphics and features .....

"This Lady never authorize her name, photograph or any other profile information to appear on another dating site while she is present on Anastasia Websites.
She also accepts that she will never receive or seek to receive financial compensation."
This disclaimer appears at the bottom of the profile's listing on Anastasiadate. I have found several ladies on Anastasiadate also listed on other dating websites. I also found that the listing on Anastasia can be obsolete with regard to a specific lady (Anastasia has old photos and prior location). Other dating sites say that a lady is not completely barred from being listed on other dating sites while being a member of their site.
Here are two recent comments about Anastasia from a Danish man who has used the site for a decade and a FSU women who is listed on the site.
"I just want to say that after being a member for 10 years on and off, yes I even know their services better than their own employees who cant even agree if it is a dating agency or a social network. I simply cannot recommend anastasiadate to anyone, but rather warn everybody to stay away, save your money and run.
The anti scam protection is a joke, often the agency do not take reports or warnings serious. Actual the agency is not even close to being a premium website or have any real serious anti scam protection... Yes the girls cannot ask you for money and they will check such minor things.. But they NEVER do any background checks on people on social networks to check if girls are in relationships or their letters actual fit their life style.
Many girls are two different people and living a double life. On anastasiadate they are the perfect girl and wife, on their social network profile they are very different and have other opinions than in their letters. This should make you wonder !
I have even been corresponding with a girl who where dating a Ukraine man for 1 year and became engaged and even married... I did my self have to provide their vacation photos and photos of her ring and provide all evidence to have her removed, etc.
However it is only the only time during 10 years I ever got a refund for anything, however I was not allowed to withdraw but only spend the money on the website. ;-(
I have also many times found members on vk.com or other websites where I could see they where in a relationship but single on anastasiadate.com even when asked.
Anastasiadate did not care at all and girls never got removed.
You also need to know that no girl will EVER talk to you outside of the website, so if you think you send a girl like 10 letters on the dating site, and then find her social network profile on example Facebook and want to say hello, then she will NEVER talk to you on the social network.
I think you should wonder how serious she really is if she will not want to be friends with you or talk to you outside of the website.
You also need to be aware that Anastasiadate is like a Casino... House takes all.
Meaning that if you put money in your account, then they will NEVER allow you to withdraw them to your bank account again. Once there is money in the account you have to spend them.. And after 1 year if you did not use your money then they will expire..
You really want to be a member somewhere like that, then you are crazy.. Nobody put money in a bank if they cannot get their money out again.!!!!
By the way you pay in USD but you will find out your money goes to the tax heaven of Cyprus and you pay in Euros without even being told about it.
I been scammed several times but no help by the agency at all. And in 2015 it have become very difficult to meet anyone from the website, they always lie and the girls are never able to preplan anything or let you know when you can come and visit her on a date or two. I typical just tell the girls that I will come in 1-2 month from now and then I invite 3-4 girls on a date and then I maybe meet 1 from anastasiadate, and meet a girl or two from dream-marriage.com however I do also not recommend using dream-marriage there are tons of bad girls there and they charge 30-40usd per translator hour!!!!!!!... the conversation just keep going on and on and on. You will also never be able to be alone with a girl, the translator will always be there, even if you are a relationship. The girl also pretty much never want to correspond or stay in contact outside of the agency... in general the agency have a lot of trouble and many girls get paid under the table by their local agencies. The girls often are just here to earn a little money and especially have an interest in chatting and will ask you to chat. Also now a days you get 30-40 fake letters every day ( introduction letters ) and you get 360 chat requests per hour... they are also fake. Actually it work in such a way that when a girl is online then a computer script automatically select the girl and give her a premade chat text. Then a random amount of chat request/popup are send to all men online making it look like the girl want to chat with you. The same goes with the 30-40 introduction letters you get everyday.
Actual sometimes you will see the same chat request message written by more than one girl. You can even see chat request when you are not logged in sometimes... doh."
"Actually you can't even see when someone you correspond with actually choose to chat with you on her own, the girl so to speak just down in the flood of spam chat request. All in all, I meet more than 15 girls and been engaged with a scammer 1 time... I dated girls who were engaged, and I can't even count how many girls who have been unserious and not really wanted to meet me, but just wanted to talk for "fun"/ money. Some even been on the site for years without meeting any men and agency never remove them. In general, stay away you are wasting your time/life and money. Agencies have become a money machine and especially since 2008 it have been going down the drain every year, and now a days they even force you to pay a membership fee to use overpriced services such as chat, yes you can't even refill your account anymore without being forced to pay the membership fee for pretty much nothing...... all in all, terrible stay away, times are hard in ukraine/russia to many girls who just date you for money and never have real intentions... go somewhere else. Oh, i forgot to say the agencies send the money you pay them into a tax haven in Cyprus. Your bonus points you earn can't be used for anything.. I had 1400 I think . If you wonder if the girls are real then yes... But, they are mostly not serious at all, but just there to earn money under the table. It is one big lie and chances you fall madly in love are virtual non-existent and the girls will probably never marry and move to your country. Last year roughly 6000 men visited odessa and only 4-6 got married... you feel lucky ? One last thing - the VIP badge is worthless, no special service or respect for loyal memebers.... all in all, stay away save your money... it is almost one big scam...
My best advice go to a dating party instead.. You will instantly know if you like someone and then you can exchange contact information.
Best time to meet someone is after writing letters for 3 month, after that letters will just be what did you do today yada yada.. Dating is about people, not to read about them... ;-)
I wrote more than 850 letters to girls, and got 99% response to all letters sent. I think this is extremely unrealistic, and people should wonder why pretty much everybody I ever spoke to ALWAYS reply to my letter. I am no super model and 37 years old.
I once made a little science experiment on a Danish website with much fewer members than anastasiadate. I lent a photo of a pretty girl I knew and made a dating profile. In 24 hours, I got more than 100 letters everyday and after 1 week I deleted the profile.
Well, what I want to say is, on anastasiadate there are millions of men and especially the most beautiful girls get a lot more than 100 letters every day. I think you should wonder how she are able to talk to so many people... Many girls correspond with more than 20-30 men and they still can cope with remembering things, etc.... Personaly, I cannot write with more than 5 girls at the same time and send them 1-2 letters every week without my brain breaking down... You should wonder who write the girls' letters
Ps. Are the girls real.. Yes, and they almost always look like on their photos..
pps. I will be happy to give interviews to large newspapers/radio/tv about the "sick" dating industry."
"I signed for the site about 4 years ago. How many men I met in real life? Just 5 men, who had serious intentions and who came from the other side of the World to meet me. It was an honor, of course.
But, first who came was a man from UK, who lied about his age. His profile says he was 45 and in fact he was older than 70. What I should do with that old guy? Changing his diapers ?? Alright, we had coffee and I ran away, really mad at myself, because I had to insist to talk with camera first, before meeting in real life .
So, next one was from Brazil. OMG, you had to see his outfit, he was dressed like a homeless man, I was really ashamed to walk the street with him. And I still can't forget his old white snickers, that was a complete turn off.
The third one, was from Australia. A very nice person, but he had problems with alcohol, he was drinking a lot, every time we gone out , when he came to my city. And the other thing - he was sweating like a pig, all the time. And he had long gray hair in both of his ears. Blaaahhhh, disgusting.
But, a great person to talk to on the internet, very intelligent guy. Miss our conversations sometimes.
The 4th one was from Cali. A sick bastard, who told me from the first time he saw me, that he wants me to make a tattoo with his name on my body. Isn't it sick? He was obsessed with me, like he never met any woman in real life. That was really weird.
Finally, the 5th man I met on anastasiadate, was from USA and guess what? He was Russian, who moved to the states many years ago. So babes, we date in real for a year, we meet often and travel together. We have lots in common and this is the best part.
What I want to tell, to those guys, who say that the site is a scam:
GO LEARN HOW TO DRESS UP
LOSE SOME WEIGHT
DROP ALL OF YOUR YANKEES AND DONALD DUCK BASEBALL HATS AND OLD T-SHIRTS
GET SOME GOOD ITALIAN SHOES
BRUSH YOUR TEETH PROPERLY
DON'T SEEK FOR 18-20 YO GIRLS FOR MARRIAGE
If you are older than 40, never ever any girl younger than 33, will have a relationship with you. The site is giving you a wrong image, so you all start believing that teen girls from Ukraine will fall in love with you for your citizenship. Bullshhh....!! All they want - a sugar daddy, who will never come to Ukraine. That's it. Yes, they are all beautiful, but not one of them wants you for who you are. All they want - your money.
Please, open your eyes to the site and if you really want to marry a good woman, seek someone older than 35.
Don't think please, that men in Ukraine are that bad, as the site describes. All those women, who write that local men are mostly alcoholics, jobless and etc., they just lie, to get your money and to give you the impression that you are special one. And you are not. You just can't be special, because you guys on there have completely different culture, mentality. Basically, we have nothing to speak about with you, because you know nothing about Russian culture, movies, jokes and etc. Yes, site pays ladies for chats, true. But! Why the heck I have to spend my free time on talking with a man, who is never serious or who will never come to meet me in real? That's a waste of time , nothing else. If a woman sees that you invest money in the future relationship, if she sees that you are making steps to get her - She will be more opened to you. Too many empty speakers on there and too little time we have to spend on them.
“That's it. Yes, they are all beautiful, but not one of them wants you for who you are. All they want - your money.”
“If a woman sees that you invest money in the future relationship, if she sees that you are making steps to get her - She will be more opened to you. Too many empty speakers on there and too little time we have to spend on them.”
Even when a quote “appears?” to be from an honest and sincere woman,,, the deception and hypocrisy comes shining through. A scammer wants you to spend money on her,,,,, a sincere woman is expecting you to spend money on her??! The result is the same,,, you spend money not really knowing if anything is going to come from it.
And for them “ALL” being beautiful,,, that’s not true either. I think that they take the time to make themselves look better than the average western woman,,, but they are masters of makeup and photoshop. This reminds me of something my father says: Beware of a repainted car,,, it can be a good looking piece of nothing!
Yes, I would agree that the ending part of the quote from the FSU AnastasiaDate female seems a bit contradictory. It would seem that the the lady herself is part of the problem. I have seen some rather sketchy women on these dating sites - numerous tattoos, thin as a rail, somewhat on the heavy side, goth appearance, and many who seem quite dull and listless (not too surprised at that given their living conditions). Again, the quote is from someone who claims to be a FSU lady on the dating site. YMMV.
"Yes, they are all beautiful, but not one of them wants you for who you are. All they want - your money."
Not true. Some of them are porkers.
You can see here this guy does a comparison of their adate profile and their VK/FB
All of them undergo a photo/makeup session. Their photos are further photoshopped so that they seemingly look "amazing" even the fat ones. Some of you guys are razzle dazzled by tons of makeup but just remember - lipstick on a pig is still a pig.
I'm here in Kiev and yes you can see some beautiful women but you will see the porkers too coming out of McDonalds and other fast food outlets. The thin ones maintain and care about their diet. I've seen others who maintain their figure barely eat a thing and smoke a lot of cigarrettes.
"a sincere woman is expecting you to spend money on her?"
Most guys who go to Eastern Europe are in search of a much younger girlfriend or wife. This is going to cost you something.
For instance, I'm dating a girl 19 years my junior. When I go to the restaurant or cafe it's understood I pay for her. She's giving me her youth and I'm offering in exchange (some) financial support. Else why should she be with me?
Mind you I'm not spending on her extravagantly. I am taking it slow to ensure she's not a professional dater.
Our first meeting pretty much confirmed that she's not.
The response on my account profile when I attempt to view it.
"You haven’t been communicating with anyone on our site for a long time, so your profile is not currently visible to the Ladies.
Use one of our chat or message services to activate your profile.
Start communicating right now! "
So why has my "hidden profile" received over a dozen messages from the ladies on Anastasia just this week alone (and tons more for several months).
