In 3 weeks my Ukrainian wife will have been here for a year. How have things changed? Well my health has declined, having being diagnosed with cancer. No, not real cancer, just the kind you cut out and it's gone. She had been a champion thru all of this. When there was a question about if it had spread she told me if I die she will come to heaven and bring me home. She is an absolute angel. There is no doubt I could never replaced her. In my profile I wrote "I want to find the woman with the most beautiful inside world on earth". Well I got my wish. She is responsible for every smile that has crossed my face for the last year.
I told her I wished I would have met her 20 years ago. Her response was "but I would have been 14".
Any way all I can say is I am the happiest man alive and each morning I have to pinch myself to be sure my life is not just a dream.
To you guys that are just starting out, pay attention but take all the negativity with a grain of salt. It's easy to avoid getting scammed, just pay attention to your money, who wants it, and what for.
Never get in a situation where you don't know the total final cost. If you ask and they don't answer directly, ask again.
Date women with passable English, it well simplify your life and save you translators fees..an expense that adds up plus it gets you out of the clutches of the agency.
What ever you do, go not to find a wife. Go to see the world and remember you may meet the woman of your dreams at the tea house, the coffee shop, the market. ... any where. Have fun, be open, be positive, try new things, and be flexible
Sorry to hear about the cancer diagnosis, but glad that they were able to do the surgery on it. A cousin of mine had surgery to remove part of a lobe after being diagnosed with lung cancer and receiving treatments. Her prognosis is uncertain.
I have mentioned about the age difference to many of my contacts. I had finished my studies before some had not been born or in elementary school.
At my age, I guess I can start going on cruises or taking it more easier as my working career starts to near its end. I have travelled a bit (not to Europe) and read a lot of history books. After learning about what has transpired over the centuries, my personal opinion may not be suitable for printing.
Good on you Tom, you really are a lucky guy, and your message shows that not all women in the FSU are heartless scsmmers as some people in this forum want to have others believe. It really throws into confusion and fear newbies who think they are talking to reasonable and knowldgable people in this forum.
"that not all women in the FSU are heartless scsmmers as some people in this forum want to have others believe."
I don't think anyone is saying that they're ALL scammers. Who in this forum has said that? The majority of FSU women are kind, decent, honest and sincere. In fact the scammers usually turn out to be males posing as females.
So again the opposite is true of what you're saying.
Thank you for your good wishes. As far as anyone can tell (and doctors Have looked hard using my insurance and checkbook) they got it all early and soon. It pays to be a hypochondriac. I Wish you all the success I had. Also i have met dozens of her friends in ukraine all beautiful, all looking for a husband. They are terrific women, honest, sincere. .. but sorry, I got the best one.
I thank you all. First I do just want to say to the new comers that things are not all gloom and soon as many here make it sound. Go. Be open to what ever occurs around you. 8 Let some of the best women I've met go because they weren't planned. I had target fixation and wasn't "here". I was at dinner on my mind with the woman de jouir.
To put this task in perspective for you, it will cost you about $20,000, front to back. If you aren't lucky maybe a little more. Finding a great wife in eastern Europe seems to me to be about as hard as finding a decient woman in the us. The only difference, again at least for me, using the 1 to 10 scale she will be about 3 points better looking on the outside and about 8 points better on the inside.
I also want to thank you tire kickers. With out you the women there would not be so skeptical at first or so impressed when you arrive
