Can anyone enlighten me why these girls would be doing that if they are not serious? After all it's still effort for them to write these letters, I assume they have to pay to get them translated, so I don't understand.
I just got another letter from some lady that was interesting. First she introduces herself and tells me she wants to know more about me and my life, then she talks about herself a bit, and finally she calls me Chuck (which is not my name) and asks if she understood correctly that I was in Iraq (when hell freezes over). Again, I asked earlier if anybody would care to comment on the percentage of genuine letters vs. copy and paste stuff. I;d love to hear others' comments.
If she is from the agency-report site administrator about it. We constantly fight with agencies that send make those mistakes.
And yes, phone is a good way to check if she is really interested. Just do not expect lady to give your phone number right away after a couple of letters. Many will refuse to do it.
As for sending "copy and paste stuff". You cant imagine how many letter we receive from ladies and agencies that ask why men do not respond. Some ladies just do not beleive that men are serious. Same as you do not beleive that women send you genuine letter!
And I have a friend, who had the same case but it was a man who mistaken her name, I guess he was sending letters to many girls:) Her name is Vika, and he titled his letter "hello Tanya"...not very good, right??
Olga, perhaps you can enlighten me. You say that Russian women don't think men are serious - I don't know how the system works for them, but we have to pay for your services, so (perhaps naively) I can't imagine that men would be here just for the fun of it. Of course the other aspect is that there are probably 5 women for every man (just guessing) participating here, so that's bound to make it difficult for the ladies. As far as copy and paste stuff, I have never sent a template letter to a woman, and I've written about 100 letters or so by now, I always try to respond to their questions, or refer to things in their profile. I see much less of that in the letters I get, perhaps 1 out of 3. I don't know if there are cultural things that prevent these ladies from being more inquisitive or direct, but it seems at the rate some of these exchanges go it would take years to get to know each other well - so why bother?
JJ, if they all got personal, how would you ever narrow down your choice, I write letters to ladies, that are just ticking over, when those you write more personal letters to, come to an end for one reason or another, you have other ladies who you have been corresponding with, to take up with, sure it works the same for the ladies
Understood. Nevertheless I think chances are better to at least make some personal connection if you want to keep it going, as opposed to repeating that you are nice, like flowers, presents, surprises, and other stuff like that. After 2 or 3 repetitions that's bound to get old.
Buckeyeman, I'm sure your not from O--o. I wish you luck she's a knock out. I would suggest you find a way to tell her, you anounced her. I would be completely honest, she says that she likes that. Tell here why, if it was insecurity or what. If you like her and feel her letters are personal, go for it. After all, thats what we are here for, right.That is what she is here for.I have a few questions, do you enjoy your correspondence? Are you having fun? What else could you be doing?
I agree with Toad. If in doubt ask for phone number and address. Tell her you want to call her and send her a letter. If she doesn't deliver with the phone and address move on. I asked for my lady's number early on and she sent it. Had she not I would of written someone else.
What do you think about this Ptichka?
I might mention though, that we had written each other for a month and had talked about meeting in russia before I asked for number.
