Moyarishka, is your 50 UAH monthly telephone/internet cost with 'Life' part of an annual contract, or is it possible to buy only one month's allowance?
When I was last in Ukraine, I bought a Life SIM card because it was massively cheaper than using my UK provider. The sales girl in Kiev said I would need to top-up my account at least once a year or I would lose my phone number. I tried to refill my account on Life's website just so that I would keep my phone number, but couldn't because the site would not accept payments from non-Ukrainian credit cards. Looking at their site now, it seems foreign payments are being accepted.
I will go to Ukraine sometime this year. Life worked fine in Kiev and Odessa, do you think it would work in Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov, and what is the name of your plan?
I never paid anything for an agency introduction. Oh yea that's probably because I got "scammed" and let the agency get my apartment at half the cost of a decent hotel. Pay money for introductions? Why would any one do that when right here you can get the girls number and arrange your own meetings? It seems like some people have never figured out the first step in this whole thing.
I think many of the men who go overseas think of the romance socials type of introduction where you meet a group of women for several days. So you need a "social director" or "matchmaker" to act as an intermediary. To do it solo and totally on your own requires prior familiarity of the location and people which most do not have. You can say that meeting total strangers without assistance is quite risky. You can also say that completely relying on a third party is also risky. You can get criticized for being too cautious and too reckless. And being somewhere in between may not get you anywhere.
I can attest to having familiarity with an area is a big advantage. Since I know Odesa very well and know people, easily able to meet up most anywhere for a girl. Definitely in center where you can walk from one place to another.
Not getting much communication activity as of now. Not including the repeating messages from the PPL sites which NEVER STOP and keep recycling. I have come across several sites that have "unflattering" photos of women. So they may represent a more genuine image of the type of people in a city.
I have been to a few foreign cities and having been there before does make it easier to get your bearings straight without having to rely on someone else. Going to remote areas is somewhat risky and should be done only if you have a concrete chance of success.
The monthly rates on the site are reasonable given the exorbitant charges seen on other dating sites. So far I have gotten messages from close to 200 contacts. Similar numbers also from the PPL sites too. The site says they have no scammers. That is a rather presumptuous statement to make. Also very few glamour photos which at least makes it different from ones where everyone is centerfold model.
