First and foremost, the purpose of this post is to educate. I intend to share some of the pitfalls that western men encounter when they come to the CIS (former USSR countries), especially dealing with marriage brokers and agencies.
All that said, have a look at some of these photos. Do they look a little ridiculous to you? That’s because they are ridiculous. I’ve talked to hundreds of western men and they all tell me about how this or that woman loves them or wants to meet them – but they’ve never even talked to the woman, they’ve relied on a marriage agency for communication. If you are going to communicate to a woman using an agency you have to KNOW that the agency is honest.
I have had dealings with Anastasia, Brides of Ukraine and IDC and I can say that they are all bogus!
If you look at these photos and you don’t believe that these guys have a chance in hell of marrying one of these women you have to wonder how did they come to have dates with these women. The reason is that these agencies have LIED to these men telling them that these women are interested in a relationship. I’ve sat through lunch or dinner and watched and listened to hundreds of these dates and they are all pretty much the same. The girls ask the same questions, say flattering things to the men and the men REALLY believe that they have a shot at these beauties.
It is all really quite sad.
In the photo above, in Odessa’s walking district, this guy has a date with the woman in pink. The interpreter in red/white polka dots is the interpreter. I’ve seen this woman on ‘dates” with other men using different interpreters and I’ve seen these interpreter on other dates with different women. The interpreter charges US $10 to $15 per hour and pays the woman $5 per hour to “milk the date out” as long as she can.
And so, these men take these women out for expensive dates, buy them gifts and pay interpreters for date after date that never goes anywhere.
If you are thinking of coming to the CIS to meet a woman and you are using an agency, think again.
In the photo above, this western man is out on a date with a young woman and her interpreter. The entire park – I mean EVERYBODY – stopped, and watched as they walked by. I saw everything from incredulous looks to outright laughter. The Ukrainians, Russians, Turks & even other Westerners couldn’t believe that this guy thought he was on a real date. It was so obvious that it was a scam. As I took the photo above I saw a husband, wife and daughter openly laughing at the “date” as they passed (below).
Don’t EVER write letters to women using marriage agencies. You aren’t talking to the woman, some secretary is answering your letters. Don’t use an agency interpreter – if they require it for the first date, close the date out quickly and make an appointment to meet with your own interpreter. Any sign of resistance to this proposition is evidence of fraud.
Be forewarned. I know many will read this and go and do it anyways. You’ll have no one to blame but yourself.
And for heaven’s sake, if you do go to Ukraine or another CIS country, dress up a bit. The men above scream “poverty” with the clothes that they are wearing. No Eastern Woman will take you seriously when you’re wearing a “Joe’s Carwash” t-shirt. Geez..
