I wrote to four women from Kyiv for my first visit through an agency who told me they were very impatient upon waiting on my arrival and when i gave them all my flight number and arrival date they all of a sudden only days before my arrival wrote to me that they had found their soulmate and endedit with me. So i made plans with a woman from Zaporozhy instead to come meet me in Kyiv for three or four days . I sent her money for a plane ticket , to secure an apartment ,taxi etc. About three hundred fifty dollars. She met me at the airport , said she will stay the first night with her Aunt and she did not secure an apartment for us . I stayed at the Rus Hotel . She showed up the next day at my hotel we took a walk down Kreshatyk Street and said she liked me so much that she will go to her Aunt`s place to get her luggage and come to stay with me at the hotel. She never came back and she was from this sight with private e-mail. Luckily there was a social at my hotel as i planned . These women are very crafty and sneaky so don`t be surprised if it happens to you!!!!!
I mention one more time, guys, the beauty of Socials. Everythime the subject comes up we here "meat market" etc., but it really isn't like that.
You have a chance to sit with the girls, talk with them - they cannot hide their level of English. If you plan it right - you schedule dates for the entire next week with girls who live in the same city. Are they annoyed that you will go out with them say, next Tuesday? A little. But they KNOW why you are in their country and they know that you are only there for a limited time. They also are compteng for your attention and they know that by getting a date with you on Tuesday, they have done better than 95% of the women in the room.
They also know that the Romance Social is just a chance for both of you to meet. The first date, where the magic potentially happens, is Tuesday (in this case).
I read so many stories like the one above and am rminded that if my current relationship doesn't work out - I will be back for another Romance Social in a heartbeat.
Though I am not a fan of socials, that is the merit of them, actual direct contact with a lady. Since most of us has been down that road of debate, at least Jetmba I am willing to concede this much towards socials.
Okay JMO time for you to Chime in or are you sobering up from the Steelers winning this weekend? I have to buy a new LCD TV, I threw my pry bar at the TV after the Bears choked their asses on Sunday. Oh, the agony of being a Chicago fan.
Well Jet, I think there is a good possibility that socials will become very popular before long. This is some periminary information About a law that was passed and signed into law by President Bush on Jan. 4th. Before An International Marriage Broker can release the contact information of a foreign client they must first search the US sex offender data base to see if the American client is listed, and if something is found it must be disclosed to the foreign client. They must also obtain a signed letter from the American client describing any present or past restraining orders, his arrest record if any, especially sexual crimes. detailed marital history including reason for any divorces. List all children under 18 years of age and all States and Counties the US client has lived since age 18.
Jet I think you will find this part interesting...A petitioner must wait two years from the filing of a prior K-1 application before a second can be issued. A petitoner can only obtain two K-1 visas unless extreame hardship can be proved.
It is possible that meeting a girl in a social may not come under the disclosure requirements.
nasfan...waaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!! I'm writing this from my home in Charlotte, NC...home of the Bear stomping Carolina Panthers!!!! Having a little fun with you there...it was a good game, but we're pumped up for Seattle now.
It will go into effect 60 days from the date of signing from what I understand. This is part of The Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005. The additional restrictions to the K-1 process was put in by a member of congress from the state of Washingtom in response to the Russian girl that was murdered by her American husband. I suppose this will stop that kind of crime.
I haven't seen the complete bill, I was just interested in the particular ammendment. Typical Liberal feel good crap. Will not stop any abuse but the politicians feel better about themselves and that seems to be all that counts.
So you fell over at the first hurdle and that's it, youre giving up? If so then you only entered in to this venture half-hearted in the first place, if one is going to succeed then they need to give it 100%!
You obviously decided upon the wrong type of lady, well 4 of them actually. There was the lady who you had never met who you sent USD150 for a USD10 bus fare, get real Steele, what happened, did you fall in love with her photo and thereafter you switched your brain off?
If you are to continue then you need to sit down and decide upon a serious game plan, stop looking at the pretty pictures and start reading into the letters and next time, decide upon meeting someone more responsible. You weren't serious about these ladies because you had arranged multiple dates and you claim that the ladies are in the wrong for not taking you seriously, what's good for the goose is good for the gander as they say!
Well, another BS bill from Congress. Yep this is going to do a lot of good. Maybe they should consider changing divorce laws, such as changing the no fault divorce laws. This would change the attitude of many American women. I am all for equality, so make divorce court a level playing field.
RK, I want Steve Smith drug tested, put some kryptonite next to him and see if he passes out!LOL!
JMO I cleaned up on my Indy fan friends. They hate me, I told them Peyton Manning was a choke artist. Though he tried, maybe now he shouldn't have made the smart assed comment to his kicker!! I've always Liked Bill Cowher and I am a big fan of Antwone Randal El. I only live a few minutes from IU and it was fun watching him play, he was the only reason to watch IU football.
I did not write to offend you but if indeed my words have made you angry, or to sit up and listen, then good, perhaps it might save you the same heartache and money in the future.
You can say what you like about me but of all the friends, indeed enemies, that I have made via this forum there appears to be no doubt in their minds that I am a British guy, nobody have ever hinted, that I recall, that I am a Russian chick. It should also be borne in mind that I have never travelled to Russia and I have, some say that I only claim to have, a Ukrainian wife so where Russian comes into it I'm not sure!
Steeleman, in the 5 years that I was dating and playing the field with FSU ladies I never had a single 'no show' and only one that I considered might have been a 'professional dater'. You, on the other hand, in your first trip have 75% no shows, 25% professional dater and 0% genuine lady, that has to be some kind of record.
Thereafter you came to this forum and lay claim that FSU dating is all a scam. Steeleman, it is only a scam if you allow it to be, you had contro; of your own situation, you obviously felt these ladies worthy enough to utilise you vacation time on and a significant amount of USD. If it all went wrong, and indeed it went 100% wrong, then it was entirely your making, you selected, not one but, four 'wrong' ladies, you display a 'couldn't care less' and casual attitude towards USD5000 and indeed the whole process, you need to wisen up and stop taking it so casually if indeed you want to succeed.
You say it is all a scam but the are many guys, in the main happy guys, on this forum at various stages of the process, they believe they've got it right, I know I've got my situation right but you Steeleman, you've got it all wrong and you're trying to lay the blame elsewhere when indeed the blame belongs on your own doorstep.
I'm not here to sing the praises of FSU ladies, I don't believe I've ever done that, women are women wherever you go, there are pretty and not so pretty and indeed there are honest and less than honest. Most of us have made a bad judgement call on ocassion(s) but Steeleman, you didn't make one bad call, you made four!
Like I say, I don't mean to offend, these four ladies didn't f*ck up the situation, you f*cked it up and the point I am trying to get across is to go back and establish at what point you got it wrong, made a bad call, ignored a warning sign, learn where you got it wrong and don't make the same mistake(s) next time, learn by your mistakes rather than trying to offload the blame in other directions.
