I purchased Systran Home
And it "Sorta" works. I have a slower system with only 1 gig ram and I believe it would
be better if I had a newer system and more ram. You can surf to a Russian Language site and it will recognize the language and convert it. Faster than doing the cut and paste of the URL.
But reading embedded or frames pages it has some difficulty. For cyrllic language emails and communication on Mambu, if you have not already done so, you might get an account on Bigmir.net (google mail in Ukraine) as they will be displayed properly (unicode) so you can cut and paste them into your software interpreter.
Thankx for the info, I will try them. The only thing I like about doing it my way is I am learning russian
the language better, it forces me to learn words and my vocabulary increases. If I run into a problem with e-mailing many girls at same time I will definately use bigmir. It is interesting to communicate with girls in their language, I tell them to write back in russian so I can interpret and see if I got correct message.
Penny, if you manuver in Mamba, check out russian chicks in LA, talk about hot!!!!
Beemer you are lucky with so many hot chicks in your city, A lot more than in my whole country.
Did you have any trouble filling in your profile? :)
You are right about some of the local Russian girls picking up some bad habits. I just got dumped for not fronting up with some cash. We had only been going out for a few weeks and she wanted a grand to do some development to her website. Seemed to me, too much like money for sex. Am I wrong?
Took a day to replace her, we'll see how the weekend goes.:)
Yea Addy, these hot chicks drive Hummers and Lexus......got to get money from guys, wonder if it is from dates or sex. Older guys with bucks and a hot russian babe....she will be taken care of. These girls on mamba want younger guys with looks. Apparently, the security aspect is already taken care of. Still curious how these girls got into USA, no answers yet. No problems in filling out profile after I found out where to do it. I wondered because most girls had long profiles and I only filled in a couple words and a pic originally. First dozen letters were older girls, all in russian language, so i had to fill out my languages. Age appropriate does matter on this site, that is unless you can dazzle a young girl with your words( russian language helps).
When a girl talks money I run. It does sound like she uses guys to get ahead( no pun intended). Truely money for sex( unless she would only let you kiss her cheek)!! Easy come, easy go!!
Addy, doesn't it feel good to not worry about Igor or Boris being on the other end....when there is no money involved, there can be no scamming. I did notice a few girls kinda floated me onto a couple sites they were on or involved in....really interesting 'sexy' opportunities!!!! Always something happening on that site. I got hooked one night and was on there for hours!!!!!
Meet one from mamba, penny??
Wondering if she was 'americanized'??? It interests me finding out how girls got here. If you go to top100 in mamba site and click devoshka(girls) in USA the 90% of girls are 20-25, hot and looking for guys 20-35
Beemer as you know I am years past 35, just like you- fortunately most women think I look between 35-40!... Not on Mamba- another well known site...Well it turns out she was a either a serial dater, liar or scammer- long story, just found out today..., no big deal it was a boost to the ego anyway since I have been married and attached for so long and now finally single- She was blond, thin, tall, fine- at a California 8.5 - 9. I asked her out for dinner without writing, she instantly accepted (Kinda weird I thought liked my photo and profile and telephone conversation....) BTW: met her out near you on the "old road", then drove elsewhere for dinner! It felt like a KGB interrogation might have felt, way too many questions for first time out... she lied to me about her living location and she said to my face we would go out again, then next day via email said thanks for the stuff (rose and gift) and sent an enlarged photo and deleted my follow up email, no big deal easy come easy go. I spoke with a Russian Man today I know and trust and he says so many good looking Russians here in the U.S. are former prostitutes... it is hard to tell if she was. Another negative is she told me her ex husband "only" let her have the condo.... ugh. The poor American fool that brought her and her mother here in the first place. Yes, I'd say she knows the american system. Bragged that the state of California is giving her 65 year old mother free health insurance, yet never paid into the system- she thought the U.S. was great since she could not get this welfare for free anywhere else in the world. Unbelievable. Meanwhile a good friend of mine fled California for medical reasons and not having any insurance then later died out of state.... This news really irked me. She did speak fluent english and was educated though cannot get employment... One KEY POINT I learned.... and a common problem she said among all her Russian and Ukrainian girlfriends in the U.S.- few of them learn english and go to work- but sit at home, won't drive and eat too much and have gotten fat.... ugh, ugh... food for thought, or not a reason to stock the food in the reefer.
Thanks for the info, Penny!!! Sounds like I pictured it would go. I too am speaking to a russian girl, lives in Hollyweird, on her profile, it seems she is looking for guy, maybe even guys, not sure, my russian isn't good enough to be sure. I could picture her being kind of shaddy, not hot like an ex-prostitute but not clean cut, or should I say, the marrying type. I am interested in knowing how she got here and what she thinks of US, she has been here over 3 years and english is just okay. I am speaking to another, think she is in Buffalo, or least that is what it says in profile, wow....some pics very photogenic and revealing. I do find the english to be good in most, the younger, the better the english. In last few weeeks have decided, these russian girls in US have very high expectations...high maintenance( photos show expensive taste, where did they get $$$) and drop dead gorgeous!!
It is funny how they are in some some insignificant US towns.
In regard to Mamba.....I have found girls in Moldova to be friendliest. Mostly it is for communication and friendship but isn't that how the best relationships start. No expectations, no costs, no money. Just send out lots of short intro notes( couple lines, in russ/glish) to many girls and see who responds.
This site has it all, hot girls, most countries there, different languages, prostitutes, porno..ect If you got a couple hours to kill, its interesting, just learn a little russian and play a bit!!!!
Try Loveplanet also. It has a large dataase as well.
I met my geirlfriend before finding these sites, however I convinced a friend to do a Kiev/Odessa trip for 4 weeks and got about 20 phone numbers in 3 weeks for him before he left. About a third agreed to meet him. All between 20 and 25 and all good looking and spoke English. He is 38 and pretty fit. He enjoyed himself suffice to say.
the database of Loveplanet is really miserable in comparison with one of Mamba. loveplanet is just a waste of time:) believe me - i was a member of Mamba for abt 4 years (or a bit more),and when i joined Loveplanet it took me a few weeks to realise it s quite boring and is not worth it....
and no Deano, LP and M r different sites
You seem to have chosen a right one first up. You get those but they are not all bad. I spent Sunday at the beach with a fabulous girl. We went swimming, soaked up the sun and then walked up to a local vineyard, not too far from the beach, for some wine tasting. She was adorable and not prostitute :) She is here for a few months to learn English and Ill be looking forward to spending some more time with her. Probably wont be marrying her shes 20 years younger than me, but all good times )
Beemer I dont know how the girls get to the USA, but in NZ 50% or more are here on study visas. 30% are on business or migrated through marriage or what ever and 20% are not in the country but would like to be:) I dont think there is any Russian girl in NZ that owns a Hummer, might get to sit in one, thats about it.
I'll going back for another play with the one that has this love of money or love for money I did clearly state in my breakup letter that I have never given a girlfriend money in my life, but we've arrange to go to the sauna again and she is going to beat me with a christmas tree: Its what they do ) She tells me she could be expensive for me but we'll see. Wallets tighter than a clam, if it is ever to be openned, moths fly out it.
Adman, What city in New Zealand?- PM me. Are they coming there since the Visa's are easier? Any single woman who is motivated to travel and learn english says alot about the person. Short term fun romance sounds great to me, since it appears as though my strict search "criteria" ain't gonna work probably. Man I do these advanced searches and 20,000 drops to 20 when I specify "English" + No kids. I will see, I need to be be happy go lucky about this. All of you seem to have first hand knowledge how much fun these women are so it can't hurt to have low expectations and enjoy the moments you are given. What I don't get are the posts from guys spending months in the Ukraine then coming back cynical.... I would like to know the story from the girls side too, they cannot be worse than American women- there is no way. They all cannot be scammers, golddiggers, dishonest... no way.
Adman, I agree on the money thing. It is better never to let a woman get spoiled and set a boundary up front, that is a mistake that I have paid dearly for. Oh.. forgot. Watch out where she implants the tip of the christmas tree!!!
adman...I don't have percentages but I am finding out some that say they are in US are not here yet(??) but are coming, just waiting for their work visas to go through. It was funny chatting with them at hours I thought they should be in bed. When I ask how is the weather in XXX us city that is where i find out where they are at. I guess i assumed too much. I had my first girl on mamba that told me she had small troubles, to go along I asked what trouble. She said hesitently, i need small amount of money to finish my education at university...i was busting up...i wanted to ask her about free education to universities but I just wanted to hear her full story. The guy in me had to ask her if I sent her money...what am I going to get out of it!! :)))That is my standard answer for girl now...got to be a little selfish!! I'll find out my answer soon. It seems I am less serious on this site, it is a fun time but I am serious about finding a wife. This is a hit/miss communication thing, if you like girl and she is interested, easily off site and into personal e-mails and phones.
free education in Russia?:):)yes, it may be free after u have bribed the people at the university:) if u did not do it in time, then u wont get a lowest passing score(so never pass the exams).then u r offered to study there and pay tuition fee.
it s how it works here:)
however, if she asks for money, yes,she may be a scammer but it s what u all r experienced in and i cant say anything definite on it:)
nobody...out of curiosity...why do so many girls (18-22)go to university if there are costs involved. Is there jobs waiting for them after graduation? Most families I would think don't have extra money or maybe just enough to get kids to university. I did notice family sizes are small, 3 kids would be a large family!!
Gemini.....what would be the cost if she studied and got good grades on her own????? Or is getting goood grades
not the norm for ukraine???
If university is expensive(for them), why do mostly all girls go there???
russians (both girls and boys) go to universities to get knowledge in the field they ll work in later. unfortunately, education does not guarantee that u ll manage to find a job by profession. but nowadays if one has no higher education he/she will never be employed by a good company. and an uneducated person is looked awry, and treated with some slight prejudice.
bribes GeminiDreams... if a student reads books, learns what he/she is supposed to, attends classes , reads up for exams noone will flunk the exam or get a worse grade than he/she deserves! (and noone will have to bribe teachers if they work hard ) . i spent 5 yrs at the university, paid only once for the exam (it was my own wish to do it. i had a chance to get an excellent grade without taking the exam and i decide not to miss it:),and got diploma with honours.
bribes r usually involved at the stage of entering the university (i mentioned it in this thread)
books r free of charge and given at the beginning of each year from the library of the university. but students have to buy a few books a year with their own money, but the boooks r rather cheap in russia (the most expensive will be those printed in the UK ,and cost abt 20-30 USD)
