Texiee: “I wish the trolls on here would go away then I would feel better about sharing information. But alas, they are here and they are evil men. I know you understand me.”
He wants the “trolls?” to go away?? Exactly what I said he was after!! He wants everyone to think this: I’ve got all of this great information to share,,,,, but the bad, bad evil men on the forum won’t let me share it!
Texiee comes here begging for a fight,,, almost demanding one,,, and when a few people call him on it, he calls them trolls and evil men??
Another new member created a thread on or about the same day,,, she was polite and courteous!! She received no negative feedback whatsoever,,,, and other members helped her as much as they could.
When people are polite and courteous, they get treated the same way. But people come here acting like prixks and a$$holes,,,, they get treated like prixks and a$$holes
If other people want to communicate with him on their own,,, be my guest!
"I am hesitant to do so because of all the name calling. I do not want to engage with anyone that wants to fight with someone else on this forum. I have things to say but I will not tolerate someone fighting with someone else on this forum."
"I am not cutting an running. Some things I do to be able to stay here should not be discussed because it could bite me in the ass. "
You're hesitant of reveling something illegal. Should I worry about getting scammed by a fellow westerner?
"I wish the trolls on here would go away then I would feel better about sharing information. But alas, they are here and they are evil men."
Who are these trolls and evil men?if you got balls, put down their names and let see.
LR and TomZ, ok so he is dopey. I wont meet him till next week so I cannot say 100% what I think except he has the balls to do it. Its not an easy thing to "set up shop" in Ukraine as an expat. There are scammers and players to deal with plus learning how to live as a Ukrainian.
He has survived nearly 4 months that I can prove so...
"should not be discussed because it could bite me in the ass."
Having been in a chat room for most the day and night for over a year, I can say that this is true. People in that room were talking a ton of things between members and things got ugly pretty fast. The real odd thing is that I spoke personally with just a small group of people and I got to be made a scapegoat by others with all of the rumors flying around. Since I was constantly seen on the site day and night, that made me an easy target to be accused as a gossiper. I actually had no clue what was being gossiped about and just permanently ignored the others.
BTW, the chat site died a slow death as the server was later shut down by the owner. It was one of the most hilarious moments of being online. People's message post which appeared within a few seconds of sending it out, instead appeared ten minutes later. It was so funny watching the exasperated posters trying to understand why their messages were showing up so late. And eventually, you got the screen "server does not respond or cannot be located". FINIS :)
K-Dag,, I had the same thoughts! Being in Ukraine for 4 months and still alive at the end is quite the achievement? I thought Rick wanted to promote Ukraine?
From a distant 4um memory,,, I recall someone reporting on some T-shirt that said: I survived the xxxxx in Ukraine.
TomZ,, anyone can post their stories here,, that’s what the forum is for! It doesn’t matter if they have been there for days or years,,,, let the readers choose what info they want to take from it.
K-dag: “You're hesitant of revealing something illegal.”
I think he meant that we would pick it apart,,, like if he spent too much, or walked out on a girl, etc. Or,,, he doesn’t want any of the girls reading his posts? Either way,, he must have something to hide.
Rick,,,, I didn’t call him dopey,,, I was thinking more like; Blithering idiot,,, and I’ll explain. He claims to have been monitoring the 4um for 2 years,,, and in all of that time,,, he chose that first post, as the best way to introduce himself??? Naaahh!
I’m not the only one here, who believes his only intention is to annoy. I have seen this on the 4um many times. I could have just ignored him and his post(s),,,, and let others carry on and waste their time. Does anyone remember danny’s Russian sauna? (bauna?)
Also,,, I wouldn’t rely on him having a Ukrainian phone number and email address as proof. I have a Ukrainian email address,,, and I know of at least one other member, that reported having a phone from Ukraine work here in the states.

F.Y.I. This is forum for MATURE people of all ages. If you are a big boy/ girl speak your mind. I assure you that nobody's feelings are going to get hurt, because of the difference of opinions. We may have a little fun but nothing to be afraid of.
Kaiserdog asked me a question and I answered it. I do not know any of you. I have never posted here before under ANY name. I am sure I will meet Rick but none of the rest of you. If you read the threads that I posted you will see that I am just making my point. No hard feelings here. I am in Ukraine! Nothing bothers me!
Living in Ukraine is no big deal. The longest I've had is a 3 month stretch. It's very cheap there. Kyiv is cheap but the other cities are even cheaper.
So someone who comes in here and says, 'I live in Ukaine'. So what? Big deal. Is that supposed to be some kind of major accomplishment? You can live in a hostel there for $2/day. Are we supposed to get all thrilled because some misfit lives in 'Ukaine'?
As I said during my travels throughout Ukraine I met many of these misfit / backpacker types. texiee is just another one of them.
" If you read the threads that I posted you will see that I am just making my point. No hard feelings here. I am in Ukraine! Nothing bothers me!"
On the contrary, we all still waiting for you to post something relevant and significant about your time and presence in Ukraine not about the whining and the beaching of this Forum.....point 2. if you had misspelled my fictitious name , is because someone or something is bothering you. By the way , is Kaiser : German for King 1 . I used live in Germany and because I feel like it. Dag is my given name . Don't be " hesitant " to add it on your so smart @$$ posts.
"I will meet Rick but none of the rest of you."
OMG! Why are you crying? Nobody is going to filed a complaint with the Forum Inspector General on whom you meet or not. Wish you have a great with Rick, so far he sounds like a decent person.
There is a BIG difference between living in Ukraine and visiting Ukraine.
Anytime someone picks up their roots and moves somewhere...that in itself is an accomplishment. If it is work related, not as impressive, since it has an expiration date.
Yes, it is inexpensive to live in Ukraine but you must remember your salary is much less also. My friend in Odesa taught in a language school, pay is low, when he got his raise, it was offset with an increase in rent, he has been there for almost 5 years. He makes some money helping foreign tourists(guys). You're not getting rich there. To make matters worse, with all those lovelies around, not much extra cash to take them out. Kinda between a rock and a hard place. ALL expats that I know there live simple lives, don't throw money around. It is the foreign guys visiting spending the cache on girls before they run out of time or money( exception being TomZ here who is very frugal and using the cheapest anything). hahha
Most guys here have never been in Ukraine or have not been for long time, yet spill info as if it is applicable. Anytime you can get current info..... all the better. But in this forum it is usually about mudslinging, putting down and complaining. Why anyone would want to come here or stay here is a headscratcher!!!
I am reminded at top of forum page, it says if anyone bothers to look,
"Anytime someone picks up their roots and moves somewhere...that in itself is an accomplishment"
Are we talking about those relocating with a Plan or those fleeing from something?
IMO , it's an accomplishment if , the individual or individuals, adjusted/ integrated into the culture , learned to speak and write in their new language, able to earn/ gain a sustainable development/ growth.
