... in response to Re: Ukrainian women will pay on dates, posted by LP on Nov 11, 2004
LP, from my perspective and experience, 25-30% of the men who are in the pursuit for a Russian bride are cheap and are going to have a hard time, in my opinion, with finding a good, long lasting relationship.
Most guys however (knock on wood) are not so cheap.
And as you eluded too, I also have seen some very tight (I guess better than calling cheap) guys who would argue over 50 cents but willing to send women they have never met hundreds, thousands, of dollars, and usually end up getting scammed.
And although I respect your opinions I will respectfully disagree with the percentage of men, at least my clients, who are certaintly familiar with ladies of varying cultures. Yea, Billy Bob from Missippippi and Arnold from Arkansas would fit this desciption but most guys I deal with do have experience with women and have simply grown tired of the "American woman" BS, shape and attitude. LP, my experience with men has shown me that about 95% of the men who meet and get involved with Russian/Ukraine women can never go back to an American woman again.
And to agree with you with one of your statements, why, how, can you, and I, and John Smith get a fine, beautiful, younger woman from the FSU than we can get at home? Economics, better living conditions, better enviroment to raise children. Men from the west (North America) seem to age better, live longer. Ladies from the FSU seek older men? Hogwash! They will accept older men because we do offer them a better lifestyle. Now, unlike 6-8 years ago, these ladies are becoming a little more choosey in trying to find the best man they can who can provide well for them. Used to be they would accept the first guy who came along and they hoped they could and would fall in love with this man.
