To most of them, What we consider an ordinary man IS their Knight in shining armour.
Geri- You NEED to find yourself a woman!
Quit worrying about every little statement in a woman's profile. You or one of your other alteregos have been around for over 9 months and yet you are still questioning girls profiles.
Will we ever hear about you taking a trip to Russia to see a woman? If yes, I would enjoy hearing about it! Believe me, if you are not over the age of 99, there are women out there who are looking for an "ordinary" guy just like you. :o)
My very first English textbook was called "Look Before You Leap".
Geri takes this too far, he wants to 'look' before he's going to leap to see her. I'm not going to explain the principle of vicious circle to him, and I'd advice others same for he'll not understand.
Rather educate him in the field of 'showing some guts', 'taking some risk' etc....
She's divorced AND separated, has a kid so has to be mature enough for you, is intelligent proven by a bachelors degree, she's exceptionally liberal in her (YOUR!!) age-definition (I'll spell it for you: you qualify!), she's not blonde either, apparently she can manage, and by 'generous' she means (like they all do) your personality, not your wallet.
So off you go to Yaroslavl....
I like the tattoos.
Geri they are right when are you going to stop writing 'provocative' threads and actually start telling us about your last trip and what color her hair is and that you have some feelings for somebody.
Come over with me next time I will take you on a bliny hunt.
We want you to post the names of any women who interest you and their websites. You send them $ and we will send someone to check them out. Then we report back here on how good she was. No emotional risk and everyone is satisfied. LOL
I'll make the bed - if Geri pays.
I'll volunteer to do the in-depth studies repetitively even, irrespective of where she lives, and yes Geri, that includes the Caucasus and Kyrgystan also. In return for covering my cost you'll get a detailed report off this forum, accompanied with pics.
As a matter of course you'll also get feedback of what they think of you, their reaction on your profile you will hand me, and whether they'll receive you for a visit.
So you see, all groundwork covered, your risk minimized to zero and you will 'see' her/them before you leap.
I can see only one problem - at least 1 person here, moi, will know where you live......
Of course it is nice to philosophize. However it would give more credence to your question about 'expectations' if you gave your own experience instead of just setting up a topic and withdrawing. It is kind of like Mike Myers on Saturday Night live doing that Jewish New Yorker lady with her 'coffee time' program. She throws out something and then says "discuss, talk among yourselves".
What are your lady's expectations?
Where is she from?
Why did you pick her?
Do you think she is being reasonable?
Do you thing it is a regional thing or the same belief is widespread across FSU?
Geri talk amongst yourself, discuss. It might be helpful to give some specifics instead of continually undermining your own credibilty. Come dude give it up.
Dear Coffee Time Person,
I have defended you in the past but now I have joned the club that thinks you are a fraud. I did not want to end up here because I believe everybody has their reasons for doing what they do but now I am convinced.
You have used multiple usernames in the past and you post 'provocative' threads about usually nothing that has any real deeply significant meaning here. Then you basically cut and run. You NEVER say anything about your own search/success/failure/personal knowledge.
I have no choice but to come to the conclusion that you have no significant other in FSU, are not looking and have nothing of any real use to say on the subject.
I respect you as a person and I have absolutely no intention of insulting you but what do you actually have to contribute here?
Each post of yours is starting to really appear to be a waste of time reading. If I need food for thought I will watch 60 minutes. On the subject of FSU women there are plenty of questions being asked by new people and answers by the more experienced ones to keep me on my toes. Therefore maybe you would be happier doing a crossword each day?
