"makes for really cheap eating out as vegetables in Ukraine are inexpensive compared to USA."
Then I guess she just orders salads, apple pies, and French fries when you are both there? I have come across some FSU ladies who appear to be "borderline malnourished". Like those runway models.
I buy vegetables at mostly small businesses and not the big box grocery stores. Prices can be as much as 50% less. My monthly grocery bill is way below the average family's cost.
"There are many non meat things to eat in Ukraine that are very tasty."
There a quite few dishes that can be filling and not include meat like spaghetti/pasta with tomato sauce, tofu and cashews with black bean sauce, etc. But many of the non-meat food items can also be high in carbs and fats like fries, pastries, chips, soda, etc. Eclairs, brownies, and cinnamon buns are very tasty, but eating them all day is not healthy. Eating a Subway veggie footlong sub made with all available plant ingredients all day would provide almost zero protein.

i worry about that myself that she isnt getting any protein. she is 103 lbs but was 112. I plan to address the eating habits and diet when I return to Ukraine in a week.
I eat very healthy myself, getting 50g of protein every day at a minimum. I do high protein, low carb diet (mostly fish and chicken) and only eat beef or pork once a week
on my splurge days. I had chocolate and bacon today for the first time in 2 months. I havent had McDonalds in nearly 3 months but must do it in Ukraine with my "kids"
I agree that McDonalds is a great meeting place for a first meeting and yes, in Russia, in particular it is getting a negative reputation because of propaganda against it.
they have many healthy choices there
"I worry about that myself that she isnt getting any protein. she is 103 lbs but was 112. I plan to address the eating habits and diet when I return to Ukraine in a week."
I have a cousin who abstains from meat and he looks a bit gaunt to me. But it is his choice to get protein through other means. Some of the profiles that I come across I can see how very slim they are and one actually looked anorexic.
"I eat very healthy myself, getting 50g of protein every day at a minimum."
50 grams of protein is the recommended daily dietary amount. I even drink some of those high protein smoothies drinks. But I try not to over do it because it will just tax your kidneys if you flood your digestive system with protein (high amount of bubbles when you pee).
The MacDonalds issue is not just about if it is a suitable meeting place or health hazard. It's more about siding with political system, pro-western or pro-Russian.
So be alert and use the big head. Consider her attitude towards to view point. You might think it's insignificant but why sleep with the enemy ( a deceiving two face, high class wantna be post sovietsky mentality person ).
Hm....I started this thread on the topic of emails.
Now it has turned into a discussion of meals and restaurants...
Please create another thread if you wish to discuss other topics than what the thread is about.
LR has gone over several times and struck out every single time.
Agencies and interpreters see him as a cash machine. $$$. Cha - ching. Like the interpreter from Kherson who lured him just so she could make $90. He thought a girl was actually interested in him so he hopped on that train real quick. Probably the girl and the interpreter were in cahoots with each other "Let's make money from this guy"

Agree with both of you 100%
While in Dnipropetrovsk I saw this negative attitude towards an American, I didn't need to know Russian to perceive his verbal and facial expressions when that young cat was invited to quick snack at the Caraboso shopping center/ mall.
There is an ongoing Western military intervention and Russians soldiers operating in Ukraine. Because of it, you'll be noticing propaganda and demeanor towards western stuff, online and offline. There fore, your emails might be more deceive then ever before.

Hey everybody,,,, take a good look at TomZ’s post above!!! How f-ing despicable, petty, and desperate are the Dunts on this forum???
Searching for a mate is not a game, and it is not 3 strikes and you’re out. The outcome of that trip was etched in stone long before I left home,,,, I later found out that she had a boyfriend for years, and I discovered the interp on a scammer watch list. It was because of those two,,, that I now search for every detail available about the women I write to.
TomZ: “Agencies and interpreters see him as a cash machine.”
They see every foreigner as a source for income,,,, that’s how they make their money.
TomZ: “He thought a girl was actually interested in him so he hopped on that train real quick.”
This is the girl I had wrote to during the previous year,,,,, and lost contact with her during a hunting trip. So,,,,, I actually knew her for over 18 to 22 months before meeting!! Now, what did I do real quick??
TomZ: "Let's make money from this guy"
Really?? They were only there for the money,,,,, but I carry a lot more than 90usd on me. I had planned to spend one more day with her,,,, and do some kind of activity together,,, so it didn’t feel like a business meeting. But that didn’t happen,, the interp called on the girl’s behalf and said that she didn’t want to meet again. I thanked her for calling!!
The interp had school the following day,,,,, and would not be able to meet until evening,,, they didn’t try to fill my day with bogus time and money wasting events. I was just there to fill the 11:00 to 01:00 time slot. They could have made an extra 40 to 60usd on the 3rd day,,, but she had school!!
Is 90usd like winning the lottery to you Tom???
TomZ: “LR has gone over several times and struck out every single time.”
More lies from a liar! I actually got lucky a couple of days later,,,, and I wasn’t even trying! So,,, by YOUR own criteria,,, that trip was a SUCCESS,,,,,, right????
