I am planning on going to S.Ukraine in March on a Romance Tour and was wondering if I could get any tips on how soon before I embark on my journey, I should start corresponding with ladies on the website, as I know writing/sending pics can be quite expensive. Any suggestions to a newbie?
The sooner the better right?, but then again if you are going on the tour I assume you will visit them individually- not as some tours suggest to invite them to where the social is. Doesn't make sense to me.
If you live in the U.S. and as suggested in some of the other threads send through mail your intro letters and photos. All you need to spend is $11.00 for a express mail envelope and it takes 6-10 days.
On Fiance.com here it is not expensive- you pay per month, not per letter. You can cover it all with form letters and post your profile with several photos.
Is there a reason why the intro letters and photos should go thru the mail, instead of corresponding by email? I am thinking about going through AFA for the tour but am now leaning towards visiting Colombia rather than Ukraine, mainly because of all the gold digger stories I've heard from that part of the world and it's more expensive to get there.
I am no expert on the FSU here, there are alot of really experienced guys on this forum- the stories go both ways too. You have to use the search function and spend alot of time reading old posts and you will see there are alot of good stories too, they have kept me going lately.
I find one of the sites I use has a limit for email, especially if you have alot of details to explain which is better in a printed letter. But I get alot of unsolicited letters. Most ladies don't type english I've found, so need interpreter, nor have computer or web access. I've been told by several ladies they don't want to go to a cybercafe either. It is frustrating. Fiance.com with their VIP level allow unlimited emails and can upload photos and I like it here, but have not been on long enough to see the response rates to make a judgement. I've noticed a couple younger ones who were very versed on searching the net as I put them up to a test to find some song lyrics and they did enthusiastically- that really was attractive to me. The older ones, don't seem to care about looking things up. Generalizations I know... but IMHO.
In early 80's I met my wife from Far East through correspondence. There was no email then, had a home computer but only 300 baud modem with compuserve or BBS's... so no email!!! The matching agency I used posted a newspaper ad and I am not exaggerating... I received over 1000 letters over a year period of time. But my ex wife I met early on was smarter, the most interesting (On paper), prettier, etc. It is painfully slow through the mail, but looking back it was ok- except I hand wrote all the replys and letters... uggggh.
As far as Colombia, I will find out more too when I go to central america soon. My father had 2 who stayed and cared for him in his later years. They were supposed to cook and clean in exchange for rent... but my Dad was too nice. They took advantage of him. Both are married to Americans now and thinkok, but somewhat lazy. They have no bashfulness about being risque and sexy in public, if that is what you like. I have spent the last 5 years living with a latina, and many things were great about her. She wasn't a golddigger at all, and has a great heart, I trust her with my life.
I think golddiggers exist everywhere, you have really dig deep in her mind to find out her true intentions, honesty, etc. My mistakes I have made in last 2 relationships over 24 years is that I was tooooo nice, and spoiled them with everything money, time, sacrificing for their relatives, etc. Bad mistake, won't repeat. They're memories are short and fade away. Then when you remind them about how good you treated them, they discount and rationalize their behavior as though they were somehow "Entitled" to what you did.
