You are 100% right Cheese and some people don't wanna believe the availability of Millions of women in Russia alone that will never, ever get married without intervention.
The rub comes from the majority of the men in this venture are about 39. While that's not too old, most Western Men are not getting on the plane and not going to Russia.
I've been saying this for years. If you're between 25-30 and half way decent looking you should have no problem hooking up with women 18-25 in Russia or Ukraine. Most women about 27-28 will marry a man 10-15 years older than them. The girl I am talking to in Poland is 27 and I'm 41 = 14 years. I got a email from an 18 year old in Poland on Lucky Lovers. Not sure if that goes anywhere but who knows. Also the Belarus girl I know is 30, unmarried, no children. These type of women are nearly impossible to find in America for some reason. Just as attractive and just as educated as many American women with degrees. Just they want to get married at 21-22 and most Western girls don't.
The choice is yours -
Bitch and Complain, remain single or Save Money, do something about it and be engaged/married inside of a 12 months.
Statistics show that in Russia, for every 8 single men, there are 10 single women. Your right, a big age difference doesn't mean a lot to women in Russia and eastern Europe. Just look at Mark and his wife Anna, she is 25 years younger than him!
When they met, he was 44 and she was 19 and she couldn't speak english, they had to use an interpreter! She said that age is not a factor, the most important thing is that you love the person. That's the kind of attitude I want to hear from a woman, a young good looking woman the kind that you will find in a foreign country like Ukraine and Russia!
"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"
"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."
Curently back in South Korea. Couldn't log on to HA site from Moscow. Only load up half the page and imposible to work with. Not every place in Moscow has reliable internet.
These villages are strung out all over the Rail Road paths.
Very common sight all over Russian Cities. There's even some very close to the Red Squar.
On my way to the Food wagon on the Train. Between the Wagons where they connect.
More villages with no much infrastructures. Saw a old lady dragging water container back to her shack. Life must really suck ass here.
Invasion of Capitalism.
Bus works.... what more to say. I was talking to a Russian girl the night before, and she said "let those Animal Rights Activist trying living in Siberia without Furs and see how they like it". haha, she was a funny girl.
And then, you see malls like this out of no where. Is it sign of capitalism or civilization... I wonder. This one had 5 levels. Very big.
not much to report about Moscow. these People Love money. Not all, but they are very susseptival to money. Not a good thing.
Nothing on Anti Putin activity. I saw nothing. Even talked to a local police detective on leave. They would not have let him go on leave if there were problems.
Every thing was just stupidly expensive.
Also, I stayed in 2 different Hostels. Many of the tenents are long term Russians living there because the rents are soooo damn high in Moscow, and they simply cant afford it.
I kind of felt a little guilty being Ameircan. Not much hope for them and here comes some American spending weeks pay check on dinner. Life really isn't fair.
I was planning to head over to Far East Russia at the end of this months, but friend wanna goto Thailand. So I'll be going there until April. FYI, I'm going to Thailand to scuba dive, my Buddy is going to Monger. Either way. I'll report about far east Russia in late April to early May.
Russia is a Western Mans Paradise if you have a decent job or have a stable income. FYI, $1000 US dollar a month is a lot of money for these folks in Siberia. If you can pull that much from some type of internet gig, then it may be worth your time... that is, if you can handle the cold winter. But I loved it. For me, I'm planning a long term stay in Siberia from this August on.
I also wanted to add. I was on US Army post in Seoul the other day. I had hard time even looking American Chicks on Base. It was like they didnt exist to me. I have either been ruined to ever looking at American women again, or I have been cured. haha.
WOW! I really wish there was more of this on this site. This is what this site should be about. IT has gone so far downhill in recent months that I was likely to give up on it. This report, of someone really doing it gives a bit of hope. I wish more people would follow suit and take a risk, try to get something more out of life. I am almost four years running and haven't run back home yet. Don't plan to either. Whether this site survives or not, I'll be happier abroad forever.

You can go to Russia as a tourist, but you'll find getting a long tern visa or permission to work is Kafka-esque and basically impossible. The Govt workers will almost NEVER do their job because they hate their boss, life, career, family and can scapegoat you for all this.
