Thanks man. I am sure I have finally got it right.
MEET ON THE SPOT
and I might have mentioned it GO
I have been doing this all wrong. Also as I have said before I am also coming to certain conclusions about the Russian women. I have a feeling that Ukraine will be better that is why I have switched my focus. Good luck to both you and Ditto. This forum is thinning out. Everybody is dropping out. Jet is gone and Toad. Even TD has taken a powder. I guess it is to be expected.
Just a few old faithfuls like JMO, Spirit and myself. Hopefully I can retire soon. Still miss Marina but I must move on and hopefully something will jell in Kherson. I hear good things.
I would love to go to the Crimea. I am a history enthusiast and that is where the battle of the Alma took place and the Charge of the Light Brigade. Would be interesting.
All will be well. I shall write a detailed trip report when I return. This is a different approach than before. There will be much to talk about. Not specific women but many other things. Mainly write or not. Sieve or go.
I am VERY inclined to just go now.
I must say I have a very positive feeling about all this. The feedback I am getting from various sources is very reassuring.
Kherson has apparently christened itself 'the city of brides'. We will see just how valid that claim is.
I just tried to book with Aerosvit. First off they couldn't book on the friday 2nd September, had to push it back to the Saturday 3rd of September.
That way I get the promotional price of $678.00. So far so good right? Wrong!! Now they want to add a tax to the trip of $227.35 !!
Giving a grand total of $905.35
So now that 'cheap' ticket is costing about the same as if book through Orbitz. You have to ad in the cost of Fort Lauderdale to New York. Minimum another $300. So you save about $100. Better than nothing but not exactly world shattering.
No dude there is a serious savings here. I have worked out the airfare from Fort Lauderdale to Odessa to just over a thousand. Including the flight to NY. The schedules mesh and it is better dealing directly with the airlines involved. $2 to 300 savings over Orbitz and Expedia doesn't even enter into this picture.
Went there Izi the charge took place just outside of Sevastopol.
Actually Crimea as a whole has a huge amount of history. Think about it Lenin was a Tatarian. So the first three great leaders of the communist party weren't even Russian.
You are so lucky. Next to that my next place of choice would be Rorkes Drift in South Africa. I shall keep dreaming. I am off to Kherson on Sat 3rd Sept. Wouldn't you know it I now have a beautiful ex miss teen Idaho on my trail. She is one beautiful woman and nice to boot. 39 and gorgeous. I am doomed !!!!! :)))
Must focus, must focus. Damn it Jim I'm just a doctor.
izi hang in there i wrote several ladys with no reply then i found the perfect woman she is from moldova and it was worth all the waiting and the time i spent with her (3 weeks)it was the best time i have ever had if all goes well she will be here by november .what part of fl you from hammer
JustgotoFSU--that would be a great name for a site. Less advice too. The basic premise to advising this new forum would be : Just stop scratchin yer ass and grumblin about badass women and go!! Kind of like that diahrria commercial--gotta go gotta go gotta go now. Which I am coming closer to believing each day. You can tell when these women are professional jugglers. They quit studying your letters as intensely,and only respond to words that need little or no interpretation on their part. That way they can fit multiple readings and responses into their one hour at the internet cafe. And on the telephone they act only mildly interested, do not use your name ( in front of their boyfriends,family,or co-workers)or giggle as a substitute for understanding or reply. I am done complaining about them,as I have finally played into every boogered up ( American for buggered ) scheme. I was going to Kazakhstan in October,but she ( pediatric ward nurse ) told me she had a class in Moscow. That was for 2 weeks in June. Then she said she had to go for one more week in June. Now she is back in Moscow for another 2 weeks. I wonder just how stupid FSU women think Americans are. Maybe I am a stupido--and women commonly go from Almaty ,Kazakhstan to Moscow Russia for classes from their respective hospitals. So,I am back to consideration of differing scenarios: trust the one I have worked on for all these months-- just go and get a cultural education and maybe meet a nice girl--write until I find one that will be crazier about me then I am about her--pay the 900 dollar social specializing in the 8 minute dates in Kyiv--keep searching for a Ukraine to America immigrant--start learning Chinese and find an honest girl who doesn`t eat Kim Chee. Or find a big old fat nagging American woman with more money than sensibility. Does the search make you guys weary--ever? Good luck to you all,save your body fluids for a worthy woman!!

First I am not a trekkie. Although I used to enjoy Star Trek. I am just a comedian and like to make jokes out of just about everything including ST. :)))
I am sure everything is going to be ok. Thanks for all the well wishes from all you guys. I have decided on the best method for me and am extremely hopeful about my visit to Kherson.
Wouldn't you know it I have an ex Miss Idaho (seriously) wooing me on this side of the water and believe me she is cute. 39 and without all the headaches of a greencard etc. Also doesn't seem to mind a bit that I am going to Kherson to chase women. She is a very beautiful woman and what the hell she sees in me I have no idea. She has the same persona and attitude as many of the FSU women I have come into contact with. I have a profile running on Friend Finders and it is written in very much the same way as my FSU profile. I think it is because I am writing that my goal is to find the woman that I want to spend the rest of my life with and not just get laid that attracts them, especially her. An interesting situation I think. It proves something just not sure what exactly.
Your post goes to prove my exact point. She is playing games my friend. She has half a dozen guys on the go and she is trying to decide. So she makes up stories to keep you interested while she does a little weeding. That is what happens with writing letters. I do the same thing.
Problem is geography. Alamaty is a bloody long way. To go there just to see one woman is insane. That is what I did in Ekaterinburg. Although I must say that Marina and I were in very close contact for 4 months until I went.
No, the best method is to just go and somehow fix yourself up with maybe 10 women. Then go and have dinner or lunch with them. I bet 4 will be eliminated as soon as you clap eyes on them. The other 6 will be worth exploring further.
I am going on Sat 3rd Sept. I shall land in Odessa the 4th. Then the fun begins. I already have 2 women from EWM who are going to meet me there. I have another girl of 22 who is going to introduce me to her friend. The agency is publishing my profile and pics in a newspaper for 4 weeks. Plus the ones I can pick from their website. They want to organize meeting 3 to 5 women a day and are already working on it. I think this method is much more reliable than trying to write and wasting time. Who knows who it is you are really writing to. Marina was a slob but a great person if a little agressive and at time hysterical. She was absolutely beautiful though and the pictures were amazing. Got me fooled until I went.
It is the only way I think at least for me. I tried to do this on the cheap i.e. writing first and then going and fell on my face. This way is more expensive but I think will be a lot more productive.
I look forward to meeting Ukrainian women. It has almost been exclusively Russian up to now and I am starting to believe they are a lot more trouble. I am looking forward to settling with one woman and revisiting the area next year. I am very excited about the 2 of us (whoever she might be) going to the Crimea and visiting those battle sites etc. First I have to find the right woman. Then we can do some sightseeing. I look forward to it.
I was thinking ( like I do once every week whether I need to or not) that it would really suck to be in a place to meet a woman and then the soulmate cruises by. This happened to me in Seattle. I hate regret. It is so ironic how we know damn well the truth of a woman`s attention or neglect--yet we are our own worst advisors. Seeing through the truth and past it instead of letting it permeate our better senses. Sometimes the most obvious perception ( the wall ) is only a semi transparent web of gauze until we run into it with our nose ( or in some cases Mr. Schlong) There is a saying from the bible that in the light all will be revealed. I will be watching the days until your departure Izi,and may the light shine on your journey. I am not far behind you myself
