No of course not, I am curious about many subjects in FSU dating and want to know more, have a better understanding of how this all works. It can take some time to understand how it all works out there.

Even ML was not quite sure the other day what the exact situation was in the FSU with regard to rape and he has been in the game here a while. Topics such as that are crucial. Can you imagine the same topic from the FSU side?


You've been on here what 2 years or more now?  Plenty of time. what exactly do you need to understand, find a woman you like who likes you and go do things together.

If you regard a topic like rape as crucial then man your head is in a strange, strange place.  Sickening almost.

Trenchcoat, Lida, the 23 year-old brunette girl you met in Nikolaev with a March 1994 Birthday - Lida liked your picture on VK. I sent Lida a message on Skype (she has her skype ID listed on her VK Profile). I am curious to get   HER   take on how yall's experience went down. According to you Trenchcoat, Lida was a very "bad" person, a  "Bad"  girl. It's only fair for me to get   HER   side of the story and see if she really is a  "Bad"  girl....or if you are a  "Bad"  guy.

This will be interesting. I have a feeling Lida is going to tell me some   "things"   about Trenchcoat on Skype that he withheld from RWD.  Perhaps Lida is not really a  "Bad" girl at all ??  :(

Anything you want me to say to Lida when I skype with her, Trenchcoat??

Trench I found your thread : Re: Third Time Lucky in Kiev

From your posts it sounded like she was the one, in love...  So what happened?  That was not even 5 months ago.

Just found this thread too by Trench: "How to handle this one?"   http://www.russianwomendiscussion.com/index.php?topic=22204.0
 
One guy wrote in response:

Trench

I must ask, why don't you just come to grips with that this is not for you?
The problem has never been, and will never be, the Ukrainian or Russian women, or the Slavic culture, their behaviour, or way of living,.
Everything that is a problem, is you.

Does it never strikes you that there must be a reason almost all people here disagree with you in just about everything you write?

Couldn't have said it better myself.  The only thing that will teach him is repeated failure until he learns from his mistakes.

Re: Should I do VK?[ title]

No - even if you haven't already done a profile

VK / Facebook, etc., - in my opinion - should be used to contact people you have met in real life

PLENTY of single,  attractive, FSU  ladies have profiles you'll never see - as they were already fed up of guys using the sites to hit on them...

I think to some extent you are probably right on this Mobe. The social media stuff I do in this country I pretty much keep to people I have met or at the very least seen/familiar with. The odd few I connect with of they have a very particular relevance to me/what I do, am about. Nearly all of those I have never met though I ignore/reject their invitations as I'm not into having a high connection count just for the sake of it. I prefer to have social media that is relevant to me particularly on my feed/wall. Having it end up irrelevant by having loads of people I've never met dies not interest me. Not that I spend a lot of time on social media anyway.

That said while I think I will concentrate most of my time on the dating sites since that is where the women are single & up for dating I may just give it a try on VK. I've heard that many women look for guys on VK not just the guys and while some may be more interested in local guys who knows is my thoughts.

She demanded that she visit me next or we do not meet at all. Bearing in mind this would be all at my expense & to arrange visa. That and we had only met twice for a week on book occasions. For me there is something fishy going on if a woman takes this stance. She is trying to force me to get her into the UK. Why? various reasons of course come to mind. I know (like many Ukrainians her Father works in Poland) most probably illegally. It left me not convinced that she was fully into me or some other reason. I like her but there are many other women in the FSU which might be better suited to me who won't try and force my hand. There were some small minor issues with the relationship that could have been worked out such as interests,  shopping, etc but this I was not going to take.

If you don't spend much time on social media what's the point in using them?  VK is useless for you if you can't read or write in Russian. And if it's blocked in Ukraine what good is it to you.

Are you going to just randomly message girls on VK asking them if they are single, speak English, want to date a foreigner and move to your country?
Sometimes your lack of common sense is astounding.

I thought you loved her or at least had a strong connection.  If you can't show trust in someone that you actually met and had feelings for..well...odds are you're gonna be stuck here for a looooong time.  Would you honestly rate yourself a good catch for a woman because that in the end is what you should be asking.  All you keep thinking about are ulterior motives.  It shows a lack of faith in yourself.

I disagree many guys out there may love/have a strong connection with a woman but if that woman shows herself to be questionable in either sincerity or faithfulness then he should of course take the common sense approach and not go any further with the lady in question. Her actions of demanding she come to me or she would not see me coupled with her shopping spree made me question her sincerity. What else could I have done?

VK? Sure if you have a few friends already. Most women see men as trolls if suddenly out of the blue they are contacted for friendship by a guy who doesn't speak the language, knows little of the culture, and has no friends on VK.

VK works well just as FB if you know "somebody who knows somebody" as a contact and friendship source. It isn't a dating site, but neither is FB.

I would recommend VK as a way to cultivating contacts you already have, to advance your conversations past the email stage.

I sure missed him. Welcome back Mendeleyev


I got a VK site. I fill it with photos of my life in Georgia and some photos of me and family over the years. It is a useful tool as Mendy said for giving someone a glance into your life. I got about 10 VK friends both men Western, and women of the FSU.

I think you're right Maxx. I've just joined up and already I could see how it might help show a girl more better your life. From what I have learned on the other thread about the situation with the last girl I was with it could really help in a situation such as that I think. If a girl can see more of your life then it may help avoid distrust on the girl's side. I know it can often reassure me a little when I have seen the girls VK page that everything aligns and she looks sound enough. It also helps me get a better idea of her. If she see's I've got a fair few girls on there then a bit of jealously may work in my favour :devil:

Moby, so much has been hacked on the site that it is difficult to navigate many pages. I am working on a new rebuild that is more secure.

I have pissed off certain personalities in the Kremlin.

that's why you're still playing checkers and they're playing chess.   If a girl has a hundred or more guy friends then you gonna be jealous too?  most people have at least that many friends on Facebook or VK. grow up.
