I can't believe with all those pictures, that you were lucky enough to have a home-cooked meal and didn't take pictures of the food! Ok I'll throw it out there - what are the odds YOU would move THERE instead of vice versa?
^For real. Looks like they had nice electrified train lines...
Did you spend enough time for her to feel comfortable at least just visiting here briefly?
Do you have a local translator? I think if you could hook her up with the local translator so she could communicate with that person, that might speak to your willingness to make her comfortable here and not freaked about visiting.
Have you sent her any packages/gifts from the US?
European cultural blasphemy: Americans in white tennies!Also...eating at McDonald's when on a short trip to another country!Maybe you could offer some confessions to the cultural blasphemy thread, KJP. Good luck with the women, and thanks for the photo tour!
Interesting city views. Those places probably look a lot better in summer, just like Cleveland and Akron do. Lana is quite attractive.
I agree, she looks very nice and smart.What's her purpose for joining the site if not to meet a nice American man and come over here and live? I assume it's some kind of online matchmaking site, no?
People seriously can't just visit here without being someone's fiancee? What if it were a male friend - you can't just visit the US?
The cultural difference is one of the most enjoyable parts for me. And you're right, I didn't ask for your opinion.
Of the 20 or 30 women I have talked with and the three I have met, none have suggested that they would not relocate to America. They watch a lot of American movies and TV shows, and think that is what America is like. The day before I left to visit Ukraine, I asked myself why I was doing this, leaving my comfort zone and putting myself into a strange and unknown situation. It was scary for me to visit, and this is the second time in a year I have gone to Eastern Europe to meet someone.I presented all of the options you mentioned, R&R, to her. And yes there is a very large Ukrainian community in Cleveland -- so large that they created the largest Ukrainian archives and cultural center in the U.S. here (Tremont). She was under great stress the day before I arrived and the day I met her family. I won't get into details, but she physically experiences her stress. Yet she also wants a nice husband and family. So she is torn with a difficult decision.
Somehow I had a feeling that Rob would comment about that tractor. I'm still waiting for his comment on the locomotive.
