I have been lurking on these forums for some time now, and think they are great.
Anyway, I am hoping someone can tell me something about Blind-Date in Saint Petersburg. Are they for real? All they ever seem to do is ask for more and more money for services they dont really provide, and the figure they want me to pay them when I go to visit is about 3 times that of anyone else.
I am sure someone else will have had some experience with them and am keen to hear.
Yes, I'm sure you will find odles of men here who willingly do business with companies who charge three times the going market prices to receive none or few of the standard services...NOT!!
What are you looking for?
An agency to hold your hand, baby sit you and throw lots of beautiful, young and willing women at you while you visit SP or are you trying to find someone for a serious relationship?
There are different ways to go about it, but decide what you want first.
Actually they advertise individuals on this site, then ask for a private EMAIL address and tell you that to continue writing to them you will have to use their services. I certainly dont want someone to hold my hand, I have been to FSU befiore, and can handle it by myself without any problem, but if I want to contibue writing to the person I have been writing to, (who is real), I have to use their services.
No you don't, you contact admin from this site. If she's on this site, and you're a paying member here, you may continue with your correspondence without joining i.e. paying them - what's the use of joining here otherwise?
Usually if girl is removed from fiance.com and there are customers interested in her we redirect men to the agency. if girl is still available at the agency they can offer you their services and prices. it doesn't contradict with fiance.com rules. and this is your choice to use their services or not to use.
in this particular case Blind Date agency missinterpreted and abused this policy to advertise their girls. We clarified this issue with them and they promised not to do it any more.
ts1- They ARE for real. I know the manager personally.
Dale, looks like you are joining, lol cuz that WAS the case with me if I wanted =P
ts1- you CAN continue to write the girl you know from this site, they arent threatening you with removing her. If you want to have her removed and have a private acount with her its your choice. If your serious about her its a nice idea to have her removed from here and all the other sharks that are writing her. Also have her removed from their own website as well.
If you choose to count your pennies like most people do then do your own thing, its your choice. If it wasnt for blind date bringing me and my fiance together we would never have met. Those people at that agency took great care of me and I would recomend them to anybody. Plus having them as a guide in St Pete was the best. Beats going to some village in some other part of FSU with nothing to really see, but as you say you have been to FSU before. Only my opinion.
I am very happy to hear they are for real. I have been begginning to wonder. Especially due to the lack of any communciation I have been getting. I was not really worried about their charges if they really do what they say!!!
By the way, they removed her from fiance.com and advised me the only way to contact her was through them, ie it wasnt my choice, and whereas I may well haev agreed, I am not actually looking for someone to hold my hand. I think I am old enough for that by now!!!!
Anyway, I think Olgas reply above answers it all, and I fully realise anyone can make a mistake!!
