Pete, I married my exwife from Mariupol and we had a 13 year age gap. There was never any problem with the age thing. My wife at the time was 33. Most of the men of her age group (33-43) were gone. Lost in their war with Afghanistan. I was 46 at the time. you simply do not see very many men in Ukraine betweend 40-50. Also their are not many men above 67 yo, Stalin and Hitler got rid of them. My exwife told me that any woman over 24 yo has almost no chance of finding a husband. The good one's are already married and the spoiled one's do not wish to marry. I say GO FOR IT, PETE, Bill
I would just like to thank Martin_FCC for saving me from wasting my time and emotions on a Russian girl. - I read his post and Googled her name, followed by scam and there she was!
Thanks a lot mate - best bit of advice Ive taken in years
oh guys, u dont stop surprising me at how much u know abt our countries ,even abt men at the age 40-50 killed in afganistan. next time please dont forget abt those at 30-35 and Chechenska war itself:))))maybe we r vanishing? r our countries being depopulated?:) oh my, i need to find a husband urgently. is there one available? oh no, better 2 - in case of emergency i may need him.
Hi nobodyknows, how is it going? When I was in Istanbul, I seen several Turks with Russian girlfriends, and before anyone chips in here, it was rather obvious that they were'nt prostitutes. I'm all for cultural mixing, no matter what nationalities are involved. It seems strange to me though, that a Turkish muslim man can take a non muslim girlfriend, but if a non muslim man makes romantic advances toward a muslim woman there is almost civil war from her family. I once chatted up a muslim lady who was single, in her family restaurant, and her brothers ( who I thought were friends ) ordered her to go straight home, and told me that if I did it again, ''things would happen to me '' as it is not allowed in Islam. They were making it quite clear that I would be violently attacked.
On another point more relevant to the discussion on this thread, My girlfriend told me recently that in Volgograd, the women outnumber the guys two to one. Often this point has been debated on the forum , but there it was confirmed from someone who has lived there several years.
Incidentally, she also told me that no Russian woman who was decent would allow herself to meet or be chatted up by a stranger in a bar, and that more formal introductions such as meeting someone at work, or being introduced by a friend are considered more safe and appropriate.
yes, its quite true that formal introductions r considered to be safe (many people start dating after they have been introduced by their friends)
the statistics abt two to one may be true, but in real life its not evident at all , and i know many russian men who cant find a woman
and yes, some girls date turkish guys, though we r prejudiced abt turks. of course some r good people, but most of them r just obsessed with sex with russian ladies (some may say i m prejudiced, sorry guys, i m a little:))
at the airport i heard the russian man (who s been living in istanbul for 10 years) say that most marriages (she is russian, he is turkish) break up soon. actually, i was chatting with a turkish guy (not that one i wrote abt before if u remember) who was saying non stop that he would marry me and after marriage i may wear mini skirts, and when i was teasing him that i like pork he said -if u love me, u need to forget abt pork. i m stubborn and hate being told what to do,so i kept teasing that i adore pork and will never stop eating it:))these r just some simple things that really can make the two separate - different cultures, too different.
and one more truth - turks r known for being great lovers. unfortunetaly (or fortunately) i dont know if it s so:))
Tringa quoting from your post here:
"but if a non muslim man makes romantic advances toward a muslim woman there is almost civil war from her family."
This happens here in Britain. ANY white native here that would dare to become involved with a muslim lady would get a severe beating within inches of death from her muslim "family". As you mention too Muslim men like to screw white women because they know the soft tolerant whitey family will be too scared to object.
A pleasure to be of assistance, if only every guy learnt the usefulness of Google before he put his jacket on to head down the Western Union office ..... but that ain't never going to happen :)
All women will tell you age does not matter. It is standard practice. That said, anything is possible. Just remember when you were 19 or 20, you had a strong will but no idea what you were doing the next day, let alone the rest of your life.
Find a woman who you share commonalities with and be willing to compromise on any issue. Language difference can be a lot of fun if you both decide to learn together.
I am living in Nikolaev to spend more time with my one and only. We have known each other for the past year now and care for each other very much. Don't be in a hurry to spend the rest of your life with someone you don't know. Take your time.
The women here are real women. Some are wonderful, some are not. They have families and friends just like most of you. Love from any person is never just given. Honesty is the foundation to everything. Any woman with a heart who will love you forever, will make you earn every ounce of it.
It's sad to note how many men think they can just come here, fall in love, propose and fly away with a new wife. IT DON'T WORK THAT WAY HERE OR ANYWHERE.
For the men who need it, I do some coaching on the side. If you are interested contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Coaching?WTF? Oh please tell! If you need coaching, you sure as hell don't need to be looking for a woman from the FSU. If you are not confident enough to do this, you shouldn't be here at all. It will take time to find a woman, at least a real one that wants to spend time with you.
Those who go there and think it's easy to find a woman in the FSU is headed for disaster. If you're not ready to spend money, time to stay at home. This is not a inexpensive exercise. Most of the guys who come here and bitch about women from the FSU neither want to spend time nuturing a relationship or the money. One trip wonders as Martin calls them aren't usually successful. There's an exception to every rule, but most I have seen here have failed.
I will agree with Bill above on the language issue. If you find a real woman, learning each others language is fun and brings each a little closer.
Don't be afraid of a woman who says here english skills are bad, chances are she speaks a little more than you think.
sorry no self respecting russian woman would stoop so low to be with a turk , unless money and favours involved , maybe not appear prostis .
but i doubt very much that a relationship could last 25 minutes with a turk unless $$$$ there somewhere .
sorry ive seen to much -
ps its a very desperate russian woman whom is with anything
maltese . turk . arab . and 1/2 a dozen other useless poverty stricken races ,'
you can only go
thats your lot --the rest just dont make the grade .
i was being stupid and only just realised there was a second page! yep, i am going to go for it. i'm going to see her in a few weeks, as soon as work will allow. she's dying to take me ice skating so she can wach me fall over - nice! lol
the only slight stumbling block may be that she really doesn't to leave the ukraine because of her sister and parents who she sends money to. well... we'll see!
Pete...'the only slight stumbling block'....HUGE stumbling block, probably biggest reason relationship to foreigner
will not work...among others..such as compatible...anyways, you have a great time. I wonder if ice skating rink is in mall(shopping)....or top of hotel(downtown)????
