Elena, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for having the best website I have used. I was about to give up after trying several other websites but when I saw the way your website was being run I decided to give it one last try and I'm glad I did. I have met the most incredible woman and we have grown very close in only 8 weeks. We chat, text and call each other several times a day as she speaks some English and I speak some Russian. We laugh when we make mistakes in our translation, we share our families, we both are passionate about our fitness and we are learning to adjust to our cultural differences.
I have visited the Ukraine several times in the past because of a friend who was living there. I have been learning Russian and I am planning on moving to Odessa to be with her. (I can work from home.) This will be a great adventure with a woman I have grown to love in a short time. My advice for Men is that I didn't find her on my first try. I contacted dozens and dozens of women before I met Inga. Also, take some time to understand their culture. Misunderstanding comes from a lack of appreciation of each other's culture especially the way the men and women interact. I have found the Ukrainian people to be wonderful during my many visits. They are always nice to me and treat me well when I am a guest in someone's home. The women are beautiful, intelligent and industrious. The differences between a man and a woman are celebrated unlike in the US.
I am getting ready to visit Inga soon. We have made all kinds of plans and I look forward to visiting the Ukraine again! Elena's has been a wonderful experience for me.
