|Welcome to the foreign bride information
page. I am not going to profess to be an expert. But I can share my
experiences with going through the foreign bride process. I have
made three different trips to the former soviet union. I have now
been married for one year to my lovely bride from Ukraine and happy
beyond words. I want to take this time to share some information
with you to help you along your journey of meeting and dating
Russian and Ukrainian ladies.
Another great website is run by a great person I
know who has also been in this processes, he have some excellent
information and even has interviews from ladies from all over the
world. Please take some time to check you his site at
|05/20/2008 - For today's entry
I wanted to list some items that I am going to be adding to
the website. I will be in the coming week adding my pictures
from Odessa, Ukraine, Some more ways of learning Russian,
Some tips on writing letters to the ladies and some more
observations about this process. In the mean time any
questions anyone has for me you can send me an email and I
will get back to you as soon as I can.
|04/27/2008 - Lets spend some
time talking about agencies. Take it from someone who has
used them all. Yes I used Anastasia Web and Anastasia Tours.
If you never listen to another word I type again, never use
Anastasia. They are just taking your money and providing you
no service. I can tell you from experience, the girls
writing you on Anastasia Web have know idea that you are
receiving a letter from them. I had months of correspondence
with a girl, ended up meeting her not at a social and she
had no idea who I was, this after four months of emails.
Girls that are at the socials are even paid to come, I have
seen the managers tell ladies they can leave because they
have stayed the time they are required. Is this a service
that you want to pay thousands for? I know to many people
who worked for Anastasia in Russian and Ukraine, with out
giving the intimate details I have, if you are using them
you are being robbed. But you don't have to take my word for
it. Just do a web search for foreign bride agency scams.
Anastasia is listed on all of them.
I have launched a new project to work
with A Foreign Affair to bring three new websites to their
list of websites. You can do everything on these two new
sites that you can do on their site. Below are the links to
the new sites.
|04/13/2008 - It has been a
year since I last updated this site. I hope people still use
it from time to time for resources. After saying that it has
made me a year wiser to what I have entered into while being
married to a Ukrainian lady. I can say that I would not
change a thing. It in all of its ups and downs, is the best
thing that has happened to me. I have a wonderful wife, she
has her good days here and her bad. She misses her family a
lot and I would be shocked if she didn't. I think I have
noticed, the more she keeps trying to make me Russian, try
to make her American. I guess we should just call it a draw
and be glad that we have each other and move on with things.
My advice after year two is if you are still thinking about
going to Russian/Ukraine to find a wife. Just do it, don't
think, don't over analyze the situations, you wants, needs,
desires. Just go and find that girl that will makes you feel
like a man, that makes you feel as the head of the house and
one that makes you feel loved. No matter your own short
comings or bad decisions.
|04/02/2007 - Today's topic is
about when the lady gets here to America. Some things to
keep in mind once she is on the ground.
First and for most, you are the only
person in most cases she has here in America. She is going
to be totally relying on you to help her with many different
things. Driving lessons, Schooling, Paperwork for Social
Security, working, sometimes English, paperwork for green
card and the cultural differences.
Second, This is going to be somewhat
like any other relationship you have had. But let me qualify
that, the lady believes that the man is the head of the
household. But she is going to want to discuss things and be
apart of the decision process, but she understands that you
will make the ultimate decision.
Third, Find Russian/Ukrainian people
in your area. Through out the US there are several Russian
stores, churches and community centers. A good website to
start on is www.rususa.com
Last. Keep a calling card with and two
or so hours a week for her to talk to home. It is important
that she have alot of contact with home. This will make
thing for her easier to know things are ok at home.
|03/30/2007 - I want to talk
today about going to Russia/Ukraine for the right reasons.
If you are going on a trip to just have fun and party with
the ladies. Don't waste my time of others on the trip for
the right reasons. All you are doing is confusing the ladies
of the reason for the guys to be there and it will interfere
with the guys who are there for the right reason. So if you
are just looking to drink alot and sleep with the ladies. Do
us all a favor and go to Vegas or if you want to sleep with
a Russian/Ukrainian girl, just keep to the ones in the hotel
|03/13/2007 - I would really
take some time to pass along some of the little do's and
don'ts I have come across while going through the socials.
If you think of any I should add, please let me know.
Be honest with the ladies. - If you do not own a
boat, then don't bring a picture of you standing in
front of a yacht. Bring pictures of your family,
pets, city and places near where your
house/apartment is. Most ladies you want do not care
if you have a five bedroom home with three
bathrooms, two Mercedes and a yacht. They want to
see your family, to know about them. These are the
things that will effect them more directly then your
house or car. Do you want to see a Russian/Ukrainian
girl melt? Show them pictures of your dog or cat.
Letting a girl see the city and around your house is
nice so they can see its size compared to their
||Do not spend
the first two hours of the first social standing
around with that deer in the headlight look. -
This is mainly for first time tour goers. You only
get 6 hours a social to meet the ladies. Please done
spend this first two hours standing around being
amazed by what you see. Understand that ladies will
be coming in and out during the socials. So ladies
the get off work late will be there near the end of
the social. Ladies that may work a 2nd shift will be
there in the beginning and ladies who live out of
town will be there in the middle as most of them
will leave early to head to there home city.
Have a good exit strategy. - You are going to
meet women at the socials that will try to
manipulate your time, but if you spend more then 20
minutes with one you are spending to much time. Try
on the plane over to formulate a set of questions
you NEED to know before you want to set up a date
with a girl. The girls for you will have a normal
set of questions also. Age, Occupation, Family,
Goals so on and so forth. But you will also want to
think of your exit strategy for leaving the table
without insulting the lady. They know you are going
to be talking to a lot of other women, they just
don't want to be reminded of it.
||Do not come
to the social with a note pad. - I would suggest
using a steno pad and cutting the pages into four
pieces. Put them in your shirt pocket. As you get
information from ladies, put the filled out ones in
your pants pocket. I know this sounds picky, but.
Ladies want to feel special and not just a number.
Using a note pad makes them feel that they are just
another number you are getting, not to mention if
you forget to remove the page another lady just gave
you her information on. Ladies know that you are
meeting several other ladies, but they just don't
like that fact being pushed in their faces.
Take a translator with you even if the girl knows
English. - I know this does not make a lot of
sense, but hear me out. To say that a girl is fluent
in English or know English is not completely true.
Here is why I say this, they learn British English
not American English. Second, my wife is fluent in
English but at times she is not sure of how
something is translated. So having a translator
along will allow her to as the translator for a
better word or phrase, also sometimes girls are
nervous. Allowing her the option to communicate in
her native language may make the conversation
easier. She can concentrate on what she wants to
say, not on translating everything in her head.
dates you have made so far. - Nothing more
embarrassing guys then meeting two beautiful women
setting up a date with them and then going to the
lobby of the hotel and finding them both waiting on
you. Nothing will set you back more them having them
both upset with you. Some girls take off work or
leave work early to go on a date with us. Also you
probably just lost two girls from your dating list.
|03/12/2007 - If you have questions
about the process or questions from someone who has been on a few
tours and been through the visa process. Please feel free to contact
