Question about Winston and Russia

Postby chanta76 » July 14th, 2012, 10:13 am

Winston,

I have a question with what you know now and your experience with Russia. What would you have done different with Russia? Do you plan on going back?

Granted you didn't get a serious relationship with a Russian girl from reading your blog and well from reading other people post. Are Russian women worth it?

You could have just asked this in the "Post questions for Winston" thread.

I guess I would have spent less time there and more time in China or Eastern Europe? I would also have spent more time in Eastern Russia, where I hear it is more Asian friendly.

I don't have plans to go back at this point.

I did have a serious relationship for a few weeks but it didn't work out. Remember Alina in Yoshkar-Ola?

I don't know if they are worth it or not. I guess they are friendly and open and very approachable, for sure, but they have many bad qualities as well. They are shameless, don't feel guilty about wasting your money and shame you if don't spend freely, etc. They are also not loyal and changeable too.

Many have reported the same experiences. But some are successful over there.

You can't use one guy's experiences as your own. Things don't work according to formulas or theories. You just have to go there and see what happens. There are too many intangible variables in life.

However, if everyone is unanimous about something, such as Filipinas treating men better and being easier to get, or Filipino food being the worst in Asia, then you can bet your bottom that it's true. So there are some things you can know without going there.

This is exactly our experience here in L.A. with former-FSU men and women alike.

However....... some of the lower class - the folks who come from the working class over there, and from small towns - have hearts of gold. Probably not whom you tend to meet over there as a tourist.

I had a great time there and would love to go back. I only did the Ukraine. I'd love to do Siberia!
