When you go for a date with a girl from the agency she will insist to have her own interpreter. You know what it means? She makes money on you.
Here is the scheme from the agencies: you pay, letís sayĒ $20 per hour. $5 goes to the agency, $10 to the interpreter and $5 to the girl you are meeting with. And the girl you are meeting with might be able to speak English by herself.
Tell her that you have your own interpreter. If she gets sad about it she is in the scam scheme. If she insists to have her own interpreter, she is probably needs only money from you.
Of course there is a little possibility that she is just to shy and she needs her person to feel more comfortable. But this is the main reason scammers use to make you pay them. You see, your own interpreter will act on your behalf and can identify a scammer right there just watching her and speaking to her. This is what scammers are afraid of.
If your Lady still insists to have her own interpreter giving a hell of different reasons (shyness, fear of a stranger, agencyís demand, etc.) offer her to have 2 interpreters Ė yours and hers.
If she rejects this too (in case you still want to meet her) hire a hidden interpreter. It means your man will seat next table listening to all your chats. It is the best way to identify a scammer. They think you donít speak Russian so they will communicate with each other and reveal a lot of information in Russian. You can leave them several times for different reasons for a couple of minutes. And during this time they will definitely share their emotions and impressions about you. Which will tell you about the girlís real intentions.
Within an hour you will know everything you need about the girl.
I was with a girl who spoke almost no English. But, we understood each other with the important things, just fine. I think it could have worked, since she had a computer. I stayed in another bedroom in her flat. We came home every night. She allowed me to look at stuff on her computer like emails and stuff.
I had spent four days with her when I suggested we both got to her computer and talked with each other through the web translator. There were only one or two things that needed clearing up that I knew of. Perhaps there was more. She would not do it. She said we will go see "Irina" at the agency.
Translators cost money. The money you spend on translators can go to having a good time with her. If she is serious about you, she will watch your expenditures, because if you get married, your money can be hers too, someday.
I have never had this problem because when I was dating (fielding candidates) my requirement was that she could speak conversational English. No interpreters.
I remember once I met a girl in Odessa who spoke no English at all. We just communicated via hand gestures and little words here and there in English and Russian. I would not have paid an interpreter for her anyway. She wasn't appealing. We literally walked around a few blocks in Odessa near Afina and then parted. No cafť, no restaurant. No nothing. She came by bus and took the bus home.
Folks, it is needless to repeat this over and over. It doesn't make sense; so therefore, we can determine that people who needs an interpreter is for the purpose of hiring or contracting a lady for companionship or to take her as his mistress. The poor baster may have have deep pockets or is a psychopath!
I have no pity for those individuals that comes to any forum and cry wolf when the ladies outsmart an old devil.
I don't speak sign language, so either she speaks English or Spanish!
" armin(Bonddd)'s post is clever but in the end he is still endorsing the use of interpreters which I totally reject. "
If you limit your search to only English speakers then you are losing out on the best girls and that
is a 100% FACT. It still amazes me that you guys come here expecting that you will find English speaking girls in a country in which its not the common language and never bothering to learn her language.
I think you deserve what you get. Those who speak English know that they can snag a foreigner and use him to thier advantage. You are coming to a foreign country. Did it ever fu*&ing occur to you that perhaps you should make an effort to learn her language??? If thats too difficult for you then perhaps a blood sucking American girl is what you really deserve
Most people in the FSU and other foreign countries learn English to make more money. The big question is,,,,, will it be a legal or illegal way? Better pay for those working at jobs that require interaction with the western world, and big bucks scamming too.
Learning a second language is a good way to improve oneís self,,, but it is an necessity to the person doing the moving into a foreign land.
If you are only thinking with your short term,,,,,, understanding the other may not be important, but if you want a lasting relationship, understanding is key.
During my time in Ukraine,, I found truth and sincerity to be in short supply! An information vacuum! Itís been years since my last trip,,,, and I still think about some of the dates,,, and remember being hungry for info! To be a fly on the wall, or a spider under the table, Iíd like to know what is really going on during a date.
We havenít talked about it much lately, but years ago, the role and honesty of the interpreters was a huge issue. The interp basically controls the date, winning or losing could be up to her. She might drag out one date/meeting, by letting you think, you have a chance with the girl, just to clock some extra hours. Or,,, every date could fail, so she can save you for herself?!! Iíve been proposed to by an interpreter already.
Dating only English speaking women might sound like a smart idea,,, but you could be dismissing 2/3 of the women, and like I said above,, they have different reasons for learning English. Do you want to meet a scammer, doctor, lawyer, etc? Or, a simple person? To me,,, as long as she has a good education and some common sense, I donít care where she lives or what job that she has,,,, within reason of course.
Most guys will spend months communicating with the girl,,, then make the long trip to the FSU,,, why cheap out on the precautions?? For the one girl,,, Iíd still pay big bucks to learn the real truth about her!! Maybe $50 back in 2009 could have saved me a lot of heartache??
To search for English speaking ladies, you need to go to places like Canada, UK, Australia/NZ, and some places where English is taught as part of the school curriculum like the Philippines, Hong Kong, India. Though English is widely spoken around the world, there are many locales where it is not used. And where people do not routinely use the language in everyday life, it will be not be common among the population.
Look at the large number of Latinos that know little English who live in this country. It boils down to chemistry and whether you feel comfortable with the other person in daily living. I think common attitudes and goals are more important than common language.
