Better you feel a 'connection' of the heart and mind ... the soul... and learn to tell your intended how you FEEL about her and you're more likely to see her in a bikini for many years ...not just one holiday ( vacation)

Ты согреваешь мою душу

You warm my soul

I realize that and agree with it while heartedly..... Though just saying what Man wouldn't mind seeing his '14' girlfriend in a bikini???? Just saying.....

To briefly revisit earlier posts, I would never in a million years invite a girlfriend to a hotel. Perhaps it is because I have a great deal of FSU history, and certainly things have opened a lot, but still I would not. Get an AIRBNB.


Those girls (prostitutes) hanging out around the lobby and bars are not independent. They are unionized in the sense of having a "roof" and are being watched constantly.


A girl who comes to your room, innocent as she may be, is in the minds of some "roofs" as depriving them of income because you don't need one of his girls downstairs. The last thing you want is to leave town and learn later than someone paid your friend a visit and beat the crap out of her because she intruded on what he regards as his territory. What they might do to her will be long lasting. It is not pretty.


Maybe it won't happen.....but is it worth the risk?

It is easier to register a lady with you, but dangers still exist. I remember our honeymoon decades ago when a St Peter hotel refused us a room because we had different last names on our passports. We had just been married and carried ZAGS documents with us, but it was over an hour before we were allowed to check in the same room.

Cabo out of the question, exinlaws live there 6months of the year. But I will suggest
another City in Mexico. I like the idea of seeing her in a bikini.

I still get warm feelings when I remember Angel Eyes frolicking around in a bikini
in the Ocean during the early part of our romance.

Well there are no visible pros in my hotel and no problem with the one person I met coming and going.

Internet is a better selling model than hanging about in bars.  Be that dating or hooking.

Hmmm. I got this suggestion in another thread, but I had never thought about Spain, and the US is even very friendly with them, I think there is even a navy base there.

On another note, I know there was discussion on checking into a hotel as a couple, I am thinking we will just say we are engaged....... Although I really like this women I usually don't sleep with a Lady on the first night of having a relationship plus given the fact that we have never met in person that just seems odd. I think I might plan on booking a suite and give her the option or not of sleeping with me, I mean what if she snores...... Gaaawwttt.... What have you guys encountered?

I did encounter one Ukrainian snorer.  WOW how that can kill the relationship.
Otherwise, she was very good in bed.
But I think she probably drank too much also, so wouldn't have lasted anyway.

DC you really are a worrier sleep in a clean pair off boxers she'll sleep in what ever she planned a week before the meeting.  You don't have to actually do more than sleep.  She's not 16 you've both been round the block a few times in the passed before.  She's a human not a piece of fragile glass.  Just let her do what she already has planned.  Which will be to kick the tires and light the fires.  Ps Cyprus in the east Mediterranean.

It is my understanding that to better accommodate US citizens seeking wives in the FSU, the governments of all former Soviet States had made available chastity belts to be available at every arrival airport in the FSU. They also gave you an option to have the gal you're visiting to BYOCB (Bring Your Own Chastity Belt) to ensure proper fit.

I think you are mixing up another topic here - the apartment vs hotel discussion.  That was about how to get around some ladies' objections of not wanting to join you in your Ukrainian/Russian hotel when you met them after travelling there. 

It is none of the hotel's business whether you are enagaged, friends, just met her yesterday, etc.  They just need to know who are authorized guests for the room.

It is tempting to think of these issues from our Western mindset. But there are hotels in the FSU that might think differently.


For me, the issue would be whether I would wish to risk harm to the girl after I'd left town. Just not worth it in my opinion.


In a related vein, sometimes ladies are sometimes at first hesitant about inviting a foreign guy to her apartment home until she is more comfortable that he is the one for her. In quarters where hundreds and in some cases thousands of people live in the same complex, tongues wag and life can be embarrassing for her if word gets out that "foreign men are coming to her apartment."


Apartment rental is still the way to go. When she is comfortable, and that could be rather quickly, entering her home can be a source of pride for her.

Mendy,

The OP is planning to meeting her in Spain.  Also, he is pre-registering her as a guest in the hotel.  He does not have to explain her specific relationship to him to the hotel.

Are you sure about that Steve? Spain?  I am sure the OP may change his mind a few times where to vacation.

What is exactly 'pre-registering'? I never have done that. Sometimes it does as for name of guest but not critical to put a name in.

Msmob tyre tire same noun both acceptable spellings in the UK.  Obviously the quote is USA so spelt that way.

Utter twaddle..In UK English tyre is a noun and tire is verb...

We are titter-tottering between Spain or Belgium. Thank you. What went wrong with my first marriage is a very long story I am not going into here but it has nothing to do with this. I am actually a type A personality.
