On May 30th, I received an email from Natasha Shpigun from VK.com, suggesting I try this dating site.
I was skeptical, especially since it was unexpected. I have been a member of almost every dating site, and been exposed to every scam there is, even fell for one 1/2 way. I made a trip to visit a lady,from another dating site, whom did not wish to met me after I arrived. Could it be because I made my own plans and did not use the agency's tour service?
I have been very jaded, and was ready to pack it all in and give up. BUT, I looked at the site, and the testimonials seemed genuine, and the cost very reasonable, so I gave it a chance. The FIRST good impression I received, was the LACK of emails. Yes, I did not get 25 - 50 emails from 25 year old ladies saying how badly they wanted me. As I looked through the profiles, they appeared to be more realistic and genuine that the usual ones you see.
Then on March 6th I received a letter from a woman, Irina, whose profile I had looked at but not written to because I was outside her age range. The letter was short but informative, and we started talking after that. Soon we were chatting in Skype, our first chat was 5 hours long! After that we "skyped" almost daily, sometimes for hours, sometimes just a quick hello. I did not think feelings could grow so strong through a video chat, but the did. We talked of everything, and I even talked with her children. Everything felt just wonderful.
On November 19th I arrived in the Ukraine, I was met by Irina and her daughter at the airport. It was nice to realize that this woman who had won my heart, had given hers to me as well! It was a story book meeting, way more than I had dared to imagine. Well, ok, maybe I did imagine such a wonderful visit, but I was still amazed to see she completely loved me as well. We spent a few days alone together, then I went with her to school to meet her children. That did go better than I had imagined. Last night as thy had separate lessons, they had a tug of war about who I would go with, and I was the rope :)
Wednesday, November 28th, I took Irina to the restaurant Familia, in Kharkov Ukraine. She said it was like a fairy-tale to be there. After dinner she wanted to dance, I said no. The shocked look was priceless! I dance with her in the kitchen, the elevator, everywhere, but here I said no.. She had been all giggles all night, when I proposed, she stopped, and just stared at me. My first thought was did I say it wrong :) Then I thought, OMG she is going to say now. She did say something, that I did not understand, then as her eyes filled with tears, she stuck out her finger for me to put the ring on! Then we danced, we danced until the restaurant staff started closing the doors! They NEER asked us to leave, and they had closed 20 minutes before I asked them.
SO, if you did not get my message, I am VERY happy with this site, and will recommend it to anyone I know that is truly searching for love.
