It was several years ago, so I'm not sure exactly as I didn't keep in touch with the ladies I visited. I had used match.com, pof, and something else.
The drive wasn't too bad, it wasn't out of country and I had been to the cities of their location before. I used to be more attracted to my ethnic group when I was in my teens and twenties, but I'd been rejected and mostly seen white guys staking out the abc-women or even immigrant students wherever I was. I agree profiles on some sites can't be all fake. For example, I think this site has real profiles for the most part, (https://www.ukrainianfiancee.com/) I'm just of the opinion loveme.com's profiles are fake in particular per the info where they admitted they write intro letters. It just smells all shifty on their part along with the video on youtube about that fat guy's trip. I've also been apart from my ethnic group all my life so maybe that didn't help either. It's a public forum so I can't be too specific as I don't want certain people who know me finding me here, lol. Suffice to say I'm currently in the western U.S. and have also been on the other side too.
