Thanks for responding, JayH


Mendy DID point out the 'uncomfortable' feeling that STILL puts off many FSU ladies from going up to a bedroom - but you seemed to gloss over it

It is THE main reason I'd not recommend the hotel route - esp. if on a Visit many trip


I fail to see how renting a decent apartment means one misses out on people watching in a restaurant, bar, theatre - and frankly - I'd rather wash my own clothes - but for those living in apartments one can pay to have a service wash


Nor have you dealt with the 'security' aspect of inviting a guest to your room - In Russia - esp. without a guest pass - NO WAY will you get a series of dates up there

In this age of booking.com/ airbnb - if *I* was back in the dating game - God forbid - I'd be using apartment for the reasons Mendy, myself and others have suggested.

Again, Big Bill is correct on all counts.

Yup, I concur with Bill. It's how things worked with me.

I don't trust others not to shrink my long sleeve shirts.
Letting somebody else wash my clothes HAS cost me
hundreds of dollars before and it's not like I can go to
any shop and buy clothes especially in Europe because
I can't.

Even Angel eyes shrank some of my stuff when she first
moved in with me.

While I sympathise with your problem, why do you single out Europe?  I would agree if you said Asia, but there are many men in Europe who are as tall as (or taller than) you, and they have to buy their clothes somewhere.  Obviously it would be better if you didn't have to buy replacement items, but surely any decent-sized city in Europe is going to have at least one "big and tall" shop in case you need something in a hurry - even if it's only as a short-term solution.

I did better than that - I shrank some of my wife's stuff, and she was NOT impressed! :-(

Try finding a big and tall shop in Italy which is the last place where
a hotel washed my clothes. I'm big and tall in many places but I'm
a giant in Treviso Italy. (6' 7" 250 lbs, 201cm 113kg). I was in business
meetings about 12 hours per day and finding a big and tall shop when I
was done it was too difficult to contemplate. 

You're right, I shouldn't have said that about the entire continent.

Wouldn't want to be the one shrinking Angel Eyes things. I would
get keeeled!

Now that you've clarified the scheduling situation it makes a bit more sense.  :o

You are right. We must not offend people or share them in relation to origins or country, each one is free of his thoughts and everyone can defend his homeland without attacking others.

I quoted this from another thread

Omg :)
 Why did you choose the hotel?? Modern and most expensive apartments of $ 30-40 per day.

I am strongly in favor of apartments for 'normal' visits of several days or more.

However, James was going for a 'last minute' place to stay just for a couple of days at end of a long trip.

So in that situation, I think the hotel in central location was a good choice as he doesn't have to spend time learning bus and Metro routes, finding grocery stores, etc.

If he comes across a gal who really wants to screw . . . then they will be sure to find someplace for the event.

A corner spot in a crowded Metro will even suffice, if she wears appropriate clothing.

Prisoner's get it done through chain link fences with willing wives/girlfriends.

In such a situation it will be a plus to be an American. There are numerous movies that document how Americans manage to have great sex while fully clothed.

If there is a will there is a way, but all you have to do with the Hotel is to go to the
front desk and pay the extra fee for an extra guest.

I copied  Vi.Ria's quote here to get her opinion on the subject in general, not necessarily
on the JUJ's personal situation and timeline.
