YB looked slick after my translator fixed him up. My date canceled, reason: Called into work. My day blown, I went and bought some stuff. Russian hats for men are 400 grivna, but women’s are 1,000. I bought two mens hats, a model car (a gift) and got coins to pass out to my patients.
Ended up taking my translator to dinner. Met a man from San Diego who introduced himself, older/ex-military. He noticed that I don’t fit the stereotype of man looking for a wife overseas. When getting coins, the bank teller asked if my translator and I were getting married. [I answered “Da”, and got slapped across the chest by the translator, haha.] Apparently that is all people get them for. They came in ad-hoc stapled brown paper bags with the amounts hand written on the front.
Came back to the hotel, took a shower. Went downstairs and met “[Other translator]’s Brother” [One of the miscommunications from last night was that this “Brother” is actually an American man who found his wife two months ago, not a native.] and his fiance. Brother told me of his past and I shared mine. We both agreed that the suggested $700 in spending cash was not enough. He met Fiance in November. I bounced some Russian off of Fiance. Brother was not as proficient, but trying. They left to go on a date. I will try to be on at 4 AM this morning and the 10 AM interview as well.
I really hope my dates don’t all cancel on me tomorrow as well; I have 3. It snowed 3 times today and we’re supposed to receive an “Arctic Blast” later. We tried with my translator and Anna Davis to get me another date for today with 6 different girls, but none of them wanted to meet me :(. Bed early b/c of the 4 AM meeting.
