She had emailed her phone number but told Dave he could not call her, saying "my phone doesn't accept international calls".
Nobody's perfect and my first relationship in Ukraine didn't end up as I hoped, but now I'm happily engaged and will marry soon.
I currently have well over 100 female friends in Ukraine, we've been hanging out and travelling together. To be honest I am surprised people lose so much money to find love.
"When he tried to call back, using the number she had emailed him, it was disconnected.
Dave emailed her to say he was starting to doubt her story, which provoked a lengthy and impassioned response.
I loved that, despite young age, she was very mature, knew what she wanted unlike British chicks whom I couldn't have an intelligent conversation with (e.g.
Hitler apparently was executed on live TV, "I've been to Italy 10 times and didn't realise it is in Europe" kind of intelligence).
I remember first scam letters good few years ago, but got easily discouraged when I didn't receive answers to any of my questions.
No matter scam or not, why would I continue with someone who isn't in a dialogue with me Then, one day, a Russian girl (19) chatted me up on ICQ.
As I spoke Russian as a kid, it was easier to learn that (actually when I got into dating a lot of Ukrainian girls while staying in Kiev or via Skype - I have mastered it in 3 months - and think how much you'd have to pay for meetings with native speaker to learn the language lol).
