Hello, just being a newbie here. For months I've been researching mainly Colombia, Peru, and Asian "mail-order" sites as I've quite grown a distaste for American girls(yes, I'm American). Anywho...I've been to Colombia and Panama before and absolutely fell in love with the culture. I can say the same for Peru yet not for any asian countries as I just have had a life long fantasy for being involved with an asian woman. After so long of dating I'm ready to settle. My question is where is a good place to be involved in persuing either a Colombian or Japanese woman and how would I go about "dating" them? What are some of the things I should be looking out for to avoid? Anything on Peru would be nice as well. Thank you for your time.
Hello Living_it_up - I guess most people here have the "FSU thing" - (whatever that is) so I think you find it hard to find help about Colombian or Japanese here.
Two things: You say "you fell in love with the culture" - that is nice and important - I not think many here looking for FSU are in love with the scam culture in Ukraine - somehow they close that eye one crime and people walking around and look depressive.
You say not for Asian countries - what happen with that Asian dream? Some bad experience you want to sheer?
Oh no, no bad experience really. I've just been through Japan, Asia, and the South Americas mostly. This was all during my time in the Navy and I just found Japanese and Colombian women to be quite attractive with better manners than women back home. I'm just looking to see if anyone has any resources of information that they would share with me.
Nor you must truly understand the culture of Ukraine. Our New Year and Christmas, which we celebrate two here, are traditional Ukrainian. Don't underscore a culture whose history is long as just being a scam culture. Communism was the scam and most aren't ready to give that up yet. In Ukraines history, which is longer than Russia, communism only made up 75 years. Communism created the depression, which cannot be reversed in a decade or two. It will probably require a generation.
Again danny you don't know what you're talking about. They happen to celebrate Christmas in Ukraine, since you are the authority on it, hell you probably don't know when the Russian Christmas is. It doesn't just go by like another day. I can see a cheapskate like you wouldn't enjoy Christmas especially for what it is.
That's Rome goofball. I'll speak in this public forum to expose you as a fraud as long as you are here. You can't even construct a correct sentence. Let alone talk about a culture you know very little about.
Gee that was really confusing.Roam Romans,Danny?wtf.
living it up----Would love to hear some details about Columbian women though.The only thing that scares me about Columbia is the FARC gurillas kidnaping western men.Not sure if that is gamble worth taking
Danny: I disagree, Russians do make a deal of Christmas, Orthodox Christmas that is. They often do so in a much more sober (Two meanings there) and reverent form than most Westerners do. We do “waste” the time and money to celebrate Christmas on both December 25 and January 7. Generally December 25 is the gift giving, living it up time (Although we do pay more than due respect to the real meaning from a Christian perspective) and January 7 is much more a time of quiet, reverent reflection.
The point I think you are missing here as that Russians (Generally speaking) make much the same sort of deal for New Year as we tend to do for December 25. I see the whole mix as a huge bonus in our household as my family has always made a fair deal of Christmas with family gatherings and celebrations continuing through to New Year. Of latter times, with Russians added to the mix, the celebrations continue for a fortnight rather than a week. No complaints from me and we have (as we have today) 20 or more people here most every day during that period. Mrs is completely stoked with this system and prepares weeks in advance. A dear friend of Mrs from Russian University days is arriving shortly for a few weeks stay and it is no accident she is arriving on January 7, so the “Russianisation” of this period is being further enhanced this year. One of the very special aspects of an international marriage is being able to blend these types of things for the better.
We celebrate the Christian and Russian Orthodox here also. I actually think the Russian/Ukrainians make more out of the New Years here that we do in the States.
It is also a big deal for my Mrs. Way too much food, too many people LOL! Now the neighborhood kids are staying up late on New Years Eve because of our fireworks display. It's just something important to my wife that I now celebrate. I gave up on going out on New Years Eve years ago. Too much bullshit, amateur night mostly. Too many cops.
Danny: Neither would I expect Russians (In Russia) to celebrate Christmas twice for my sake. When in Rome……………etc.
New Year is certainly the bash in Russia and as for Santa, don’t forget he is “Father Snow” for the most part in Russia and most Russians don’t equate him with Christmas, but rather with the season of snow and in particular New Year.
All the Bibles were not burned in Russia either before, during or after the socialist regime but rather were stashed away in hiding, much as was most of the Orthodox Church.
Danny: In Russia, Santa is “Father Snow” and bares no relationship to Christmas. His more recent mythical history was about the ushering in of the New Year (Somehow history bent it all up including Luther’s tree once it got east of the Berlin wall).
The tiny Bible Mrs carried at our wedding which belonged to her grandmother and is a much treasured possession bares testimony to the fact all Bibles were not burned. More recently missions such as www.biblesforrussia.org/ have made almost unfettered progress. Orthodoxy was never big on placing scripture in the hands of the lay people, therefore I doubt you’ll see Bibles lying around on every kitchen bench in Russia anyway.
Thunder was just asking if you were a guy that used to post her under the name Nor, or Kjetl was his name. Really decent guy took a hard hit with his girl because of a crazy ex-wife.
Dun even the Catholic Church survived under the Soviet Regime, One is still standing in Yalta. We went there for an Easter Vigil a few years back. The wife takes her religion seriously, unfortunately no Orthodox Churches nearby so she opts with me for the Catholic Church. Pagans don't understand much of anything.
