You guys missed out. While you argued about the magazine writer and his article, I cooperated. The article with my a picture of my gf and me will be featured on Businessweek to come out tomorrow (Monday).
There are two couples pictured. Mine is on the second page, the owner and wife of AFA, the third. It is beautifully placed with a heart frame on it. The AFA owner and his wife, by the way, is featured on the Today show (American TV) in the morning (Monday).
Needless to say, this is a big conversation piece of my gf's and her daughter's friends and family. This is even before the issue comes out, which is tomorrow.
I actually read the article and several of the comments posted. Interesting to say the least. I tried to search businessweek for the photos but didn't find any. Maybe I'll stop by the news stand and have a peek. I did find a photo though. RB, is this your gf?
Don't you wish, Ivor? The same name, from the same place, but one year older and has a boy. Natalya is such a common name. My gf has a girl. I mentioned her in this forum several times. Why don't you write to this girl in Kerch? Assuming one of you are correct, which you are not, I am one step ahead of you. I didn't make her up.
There are two people on this forum who has implied that I had no gf. You know who you are. This article and the photo was done with her full permission and cooperation. That's pretty good for someone who didn't exist.
There is move towards mine and the magazine writer's credibility. Why? Shouldn't we all wish each other success? The magazine writer did a great article, with the two pages he was allowed. He was backed up by national TV. We, at the forum can write unlimited times.
Thanks, Ralph. Google; look her up on the websites; I already did all that. For the record, this is the princess:
I found her on Army of Brides. She was also on Anastasia and Natasha Club. Shortly after my visit with her, she removed herself from her agency. Army of Brides, promptly took her off their site, Anastasia and Natasha Club did not. I don't know if she is still on Anastasia.
As with all the profiles, the pictures are several years old. Everything is correct there, as far as I know except her name. Funny, Anastasia and Natasha Club both have the same name for her, but wrong. Does anyone want to write her? Chat with her? Pay for her address and phone number? Visit her? Knock yourselves out.
Most of us have an advantage over the magazine writer. We have experience. He came to us for help. His article is is only as good as its sources. I used several sources of information before I went to Ukraine. One could use this article as one of his sources.
By the article ..... Natalya Chuprina is Ben Baligad's bride that the postman shall be delivering to him!
This is nothing personal against RB but if, ever, I was to enter in to a conversation, discussion, that a lady (girlfriend/partner/wife/bride/whatever) was 'mail order' then I would consider that I was disrespecting both the lady and our relationship and any lady that brings upon herself to be tagged as 'mail order' obviously has no self respect for herself and this is something I feel passionately about!
She emailed me. She said she and her daughter laughed for a long time that her picture was published in a major American magazine. I called her. She still laughed when I mentioned it.
Her daughter was needling me for a long time after I first mentioned it. When will it be published? It has been postponed a couple of times because of the holidays. Too bad her picture was not published.
Danny, I am doing what I can. Remember, I also have a daughter. Accounting jobs are screwed up all over the US. Yes, there are ads, but when you answer them, there are 100 other applicants. The most stable jobs right now are government jobs and the ax is about to fall on California.
Believe it or not, I have a master plan. I have not given up and neither has she. I have options. She has options. We both are aware of that.
RB; good luck with your lady. Certainly very easy on the eye if you don't mind me saying.
Good age.. and the fact she has a daughter makes for a favourable scenario…meaning her daughters future will (should) be first and foremost in her mind. So if she can snag a good male prospect you’re quids in..
I know the town of Kerch and there is really not much to offer…no beach for visitors and the shipyard is dead….not to mention the Mafioso bombing each others restaurants. (Are they still at it?)
Not sure about the “that her picture was published in a major American magazine” bit. But if she’s not totally aghast at this then it shows she has little to hide.
Thanks, Kirkland. You are actually the first person to be supportive of me and telling why. Still, you are apprehensive, and probably rightfully so. I think there are actually only two reasons why I have had forum fights about my lady: My choice of ladies and the money and things I send. I suspect Ralph's reasons are one of these, but like I said before, he has not told me why.
The former, is so ridiculous. Whose choice is this other than mine and hers? The latter, I have not asked anyone permission. I have only told of what I have sent, how and maybe why. The last two times I sent money was in September when the little girl had a birthday and Christmas. I have told noone this until now, and still forum members tell me I should not do it. Even if I sent a fortune, which I haven't, so what? I am not there to celebrate with them.
I don't think the shipyard is completely dead. She has sent a few pictures with one ship in the background. I was not aware about the bombings. She has not said anything, which is probably good.
