Toad- Wondering if you got "Lei'd" on your Hawaiian Vacation. No doubt your clothing attire from Hawaii to Siberia next month will change slightly. I seriously doubt that you'll be able to buy Artic winterwear with the fancy floral deigns that you're wearing now.
The trip to Siberia has been postponed.
She is a translator in a large local company and sometimes they send her and others out of the country with the negotiatiating team on pretty short notice.
That's why I came to Maui, instead.
And yes, I got pretty well lei'd upon arrival....:)
Martin, Deano, and Q-charm seem to give a totally new perspective in this forum. This is the best the forum has been the last three years. This perspective derives from these gentlemen's real experience in FSU dating and related matters for several years. It's a blessing to have these guys give free advice in this forum. It seems that newcomers recognize this sort of contribution.
There is also a private forum I hear??::)) do they require you to have a vip approval rating for admission? that is so much nonsense you'd expect only from people who call themselves izi-something and tall-something.
I don't see any bad apples around. I am married with a Ukr woman, but I don't have the extensive FSU experience Martin and Dean have. Although I'm not in the search business anymore, I enjoy reading real world experiences on this subject from people who know what the heck they're talking about.
What is "the tall" known for? for bullshit? yes, for clown? yes, anything else in particular? no. The best advice he could give people was to treat women like shit and send 100+ emails every day to FSU then sit back relax and have martinis and go to FSu once a year for his yearly fuck vacation. Even sympathizers give it to him that he's an entertainer clown and I give it to him too. As for the izi-fad(g)-dag, let him go back again and again a few more times and come back empty handed, I'm sure he'll figure it all by himself the next ten years.
This thread was about the Christmas spirit until the 'Rotten Apple(s)' hijacked it, namely:
Was surprised to read all of the well wishes here in this thead until - especially when I got to MY OWN.... and realized that this was the a thread written by a much more content group LAST YEAR.
Until Olga revived this one - it hadn't started on its own.
The well wishing and spontaneity so integral as a part of this forum in years past, seems to have been chased away by a few bad apples.
I DO wish a Merry Christmas to all (even those apples) anyway and hope that everyone's hopes and dreams are fulfilled with the coming New Year.)
The truth of the matter is that this forum has become a much more friendly, informative and generally a nicer place to be since the Rotten Apples found their 'better place'. This forum is not echoing, indeed the only echos might be those inside the heads of the persons reporting hearing them.
Whilst wtrav02 might have his own and unique way of saying things his recent post spoke very factually. Who is one, or more, person to decide that they are group/forum leader(s), nobody has that right, such a forum is open for all and should one or more person(s) decide to ignore one or more other person(s) then that is their pergogative but we certainly do not have, these days, the unpleasantness that I and others have previously experienced, from others, upon entering and posting in the forum.
If others have found a better place then good for them and if they so disapprove of this forum, or the individuals in it, then the operative word her is 'ignore', if one(s) do not like or approve of others then ignore them/us, go to your better place and perhaps remain there.
Some nice words have been said of myself, Deano Q-charm in this thread, thank you very much, it is pleasant to receive gratitude but that does not make me, Deano or Q-charm any better or superior to any other individual here. No, I'm not looking for a lady, I've found her, does that make me a bad person because having previously been in the postition of desperate to seek information I am now in the position to sit back in my armchair and perhaps help others in a similar position to that of myself of years gone by?
There are those, as wtrav02 makes reference to, have made a single trip or two, indeed no trip at all, to FSU and proclaim themselves as experienced and perhaps knowledgable and attempt to force their opinions upon others, these individuals proclaim to have found a better place and I believe I can speak for others, happy others, on this forum when I ask those individuals that if they have nothing constructive to contribute to this forum then please don't contribute, if one can call it that, at all!
