From the moment that I decided to go to the August, 2014 Social in Cebu...



John,

From the moment that I decided to go to the August, 2014 Social in Cebu, until the time that I returned, I had one of the best experiences that I have ever had. First, AFA in Phoenix was highly professional in making all arrangements, and in telling me all about the process (how it works, what to expect, how to make the most of my time in Cebu). I identified about 20 Ladies who I wanted to meet, and began writing to each of them. After a short while, I realized that I did not have chemistry with a few, and a few probably felt the same about me. But I eventually identified 9 who I wanted to invite to the Socials (7 came on Friday, and 2 came on Saturday). I met four of them before the Socials for dates, which is a great experience and I highly recommend. The Staff in AFA Cebu is simply the best. From the moment that I was met at the Cebu Mactan Airport by Luz (she took me to the Waterfront Hotel and stayed until I was fully checked in), through the help with the AFA Cebu Office (each Lady working there was super helpful, kind, sweet, and supportive), through the Tours that they took us on (Mary Grace is incredible), through the many functions (I sat with Jim Mathieu and his girlfriend at the Pool Party -- what a really great gentleman he is), I had a first rate experience. There were two orientation meetings, and numerous interactions to make sure that the men were fully aware of all details, and supported. And then there were the Socials. Simply unbelievable. For us 16 men, there were 115 women each evening. Beautiful, sweet, happy women. All perfectly dressed and made up. And all there for only one reason: to meet the man who will love them, marry them, and make a life with them. No one can really imagine how nice the experience is unless he goes. So to anyone reading my sincere and honest message, here it is: "buy a ticket, make a reservation, begin chatting with a few Ladies who you would like to meet, keep your mind open to all possibilities, and GO. Go. Go. Go." As Jim says over and over again, it works, it works, it works. As a doctor here in America, I am hoping to someday (soon) bring a sweet, kind, loving, gentle, tender, beautiful, special Lady back to America to live all of my life with. There are so many of these Ladies in Cebu. So go, guys. Go. I will be happy to speak to any of you. The AFA Office in Phoenix can put me in touch with you. So just let me know.

Like most men considering the idea of marrying a foreign bride...



John,

Like most men considering the idea of marrying a foreign bride, I put off making the decision for over a year on whether or not I was serious enough to actually fly to a different continent and entirely different culture to take a chance on this seemingly risky venture. At some point I decided to go and quickly paid my down payment so as to lock myself in before changing my mind. The decision having been made and money paid out, there was a sense of relief that events were in motion and I was just a bystander. All things considered, this was one of the better decisions I have made in a long time. Touching down in Odessa and meeting up with my group and our group leaders only made me relax more because it was obvious that the men I was meeting had been down the same road as I had and we had enough in common just from our similar experiences and frustrations of being somewhat dissatisfied with the difficulties of finding traditionally minded women in post-feminism America. As well as finding out about some new and interesting places that our trip would take us, and discovering a country where the ladies seem to compete with each other to get our attention (a change from the usual mindset of American women where they pretend they don't even know you exist), my feeling that I had made a good move was confirmed even more with every passing day. What really set the vacation apart from another trip that you might take, where you just sit on a beach or something, were the socials which were presented by A Foreign Affair. They were an experience every guy should have if only just once. On the trip I took we had three socials. I later admitted to my new found buddies that during the first one I had been rather nervous. By the time the last one rolled around, I felt like I was so good at doing the meet and greet thing that I could have been the Maitre‘d. Each event was jam-packed with beautiful single women looking to meet eligible respectful gentlemen. If I have any criticism at all it is that there usually weren't quite enough guys because a lot of the ladies often sat there without anyone to talk to and seemed lonely or bored. I mean, these things are nothing if not male-centric! All you need to pack with you is a suit of clothes (dressing nice is a plus for the ladies) and an air of confidence. Almost all of the ladies were honest, sincere, and friendly. I am not a man that usually takes to dancing, but once I started, I couldn't stop. The memories that I brought home from the Ukraine may well last a lifetime. Although I did not meet my future wife on the trip I am pondering a return for another try. Even if no permanent long term relationship results are achieved, I can honestly say I enjoyed myself immensely and made a few friends along the way. If you are at all on the fence about giving a romance trip a try, I urge you to throw caution to the wind and attempt an adventure which could positively change your life forever. There are no guarantees in life, but A Foreign Affair certainly does their part to put all the elements in place that, if you bring a little initiative of your own, may help you meet the life partner you have always searched for.

Good luck.

This is Brian in ND again.



Hi Guys,

Hi Guys. This is Brian in ND again. If you want to go on a wonderful European vacation. You couldn't find one better than this. AFA is top shelf all the way. They have been going to the Ukraine for 19 years. They got it down. I want to talk about the beautiful women of the Ukraine. Let me tell you about what could be one of the best 5 minute stretches of my some what miserable life. Do you remember the blues brothers movie? They are gonna get the band back together and save the school, and Elwood says ( we are on a mission from God) Ok we are on the tour bus heading to the second social in Nikolaev. We are pumped. We know how much fun this is gonna be. Just imagine you are a Ukrainian woman. You were raised to have a husband, family and be a great wife. Now you learn 40% of you will never be married. Now you learn single American men are coming to your town to find a wife. Its crazy guys. Every table you walk by, 6 or more beautiful women with friendly eyes are begging you to sit with them. Women half your age are putting their phone numbers in your pocket. It will blow your mind. I got addicted. Holding a woman that beautiful on the dance floor. Cheek to cheek. A little kiss on the cheek. Tell her how beautiful she is. It will let endorphins in your brain go and you will become addicted like I am. I cant wait to get back. This will be the longest winter of my life. Ok we are on the bus. I tell the guys the only way I can understand why these women can be this beautiful is this. 3 thousand years before Christ God came down and said we gotta mix this up. So he gave Alexander the great luck and they took slaves. And it sucked but the races were mixing. Then the Romans did it, and mongles and so on. I said guys I think the Lord wants the races to mix. I think he made these women this beautiful so western men would get them and the races would mix. That's the only way I can explain why they are this beautiful. I said guys we are on a mission from God. The bus went nuts. Guys were slapping their legs and holding their stomachs. It was a great laugh. Guys its gotta be a act of God. You see the photos on this web site and you think there no way they gotta be photo shopped. Then you meet her and you will think she is 20% more beautiful in person. Kid you not. Anyway. Then the bus pulled in to the parking lot. I said guys lets show these lady a great time. The doors of the bus opened. I shot out headed for the night club. I don't know it but they're not letting the girls into the club. So about 130 of the most beautiful ladies on the planet earth are waiting in this room. Standing shoulder to shoulder. I come flying into the doorway and stop and 130 angels stop talking and turn and look at me. Guys it was a sight and feeling I will never forget. The guys came in behind me. It was a neat moment in our life's. Pure gold. Moments like that are waiting for you to. Lets go. Im going again July 2015. I don't see a better time to go.

I would love to see you there.

It has been a sincere pleasure to participate in the AFA tours to Ukraine.



John,

It has been a sincere pleasure to participate in the AFA tours to Ukraine. I have been amazed at the warm welcome and availability of attractive Ukranian women in each city. It is actually difficult to decide which lady to invite out on dates and with whom to pursue a longer term relationship. This is a completely different experience than I, or most other men, have in the United States. Many of the other men tell me that they cannot wait to return to Ukraine again, after the AFA tour is over, for this reason. After the Social Events of the tour, I must discard several of the phone numbers of attractive and interesting ladies who I have met, because there is not sufficient time to meet all the ladies once again or to pursue communications with all of them after leaving Ukraine.

For many of the women, but not all, the appearance of the man appears to be less important than his personality and potential of being a good partner. I am 58 years old, with a moderate degree of extra weight, and without handsome qualities. Despite this, I have had the pleasure of attracting the attention of several very pretty women in Ukraine, who I feel would never give me any attention in the Social events for Singles in the United States. Each man on the tour who presents a friendly demeanor is very successful in meeting several nice women. However, it is very clear that the most beautiful ladies do select the more physically fit and younger men to give their attention to.

The AFA tour leaders appear to be very careful about ensuring that each American man has an adequate opportunity to meet numerous Ukranian ladies. The AFA tour leaders try to ensure that even shy men and men who are less than confident about their personal appearance will be able to have several dates on the tour.

Although going on the tour has the primary objective of meeting a special lady, it is also very interesting to see another culture and to visit places of historical interest. Ukraine has many cities on the tour schedule that offer very interesting cultural experiences as well as the social opportunities. For example, it was very pleasant to walk through the downtown area of a secondary city called Poltava, and to see many beautiful parks, flowers, and restored older buildings.

AFA organizes the tours so that there is very good support from translators at the Social Events and on the individual dates during the tour. However, it is very important that the man understands that the communication barrier will be a big issue in trying to develop a personal relationship with one of the ladies, after the tour ends. In my opinion, a man who is serious about develoing a relationship with a Ukranian woman must have a plan to help her to learn English. In my experience, about 10% to 20% of the ladies do speak English to at least a modest level. This percentage is greater among the younger women and in the bigger cities.

My experiences are very current. I have visited several cities with AFA in 2014, during the events that have received international press coverage. AFA has been very careful to manage the tour process so that no sense of danger to personal security in Ukraine has appeared to be necessary. I actually feel safer in many of the downtown areas of Ukranian cities than I do in the metro center of the large American cities that I live near or have visited.

Sincerely,

Dave M.

Landing in Kharkov on a beautiful autumn day



John, Here is my Romance Tour Review:

Landing in Kharkov on a beautiful autumn day, I was eagerly anticipating my second Romance Tour with AFA. On the first night, the guys all met to enjoy some great Ukrainian food and to share some war stories from past tours. The first Social was very exciting. The Compass Club was the perfect venue for the 18 or so guys that went on our tour. About 150 beautiful Ukrainian women attended the social and the majority of them were very friendly and approachable. AFA spared no expense in providing food and champagne for all involved, most importantly the ladies who attended. I met at least 10 different ladies within the first half hour of the four hour social. I met beautiful ladies, got their emails and phone numbers and didn’t tarry, as the important thing to do was to meet and greet as many of these gorgeous women as possible. The atmosphere at all three socials (Kharkov, Poltava and Sumy) was very festive and exhilarating. Every guy wondered if he would meet the lady that he might spend the rest of his life with.

Following the socials, the guys all went to the “Hospitality Room” also known as the War Room the following day to set up dates with the favorite girls they met at the social, or that we had been writing to prior to the tour. The friendly Interpreters working for AFA were more than happy to take the lists of ladies that I wanted to date and set up dates for the afternoon and evening. Some of the guys went through the binders of ladies’ profiles, but most of them had already found the ladies they wanted to arrange dates with through AFA’s website prior to the tour. The dates were exciting as I took a lady to bowling, a local café, or even to a French comedy at a Kharkov movie theater (spoken in Ukrainian) Spending time with beautiful ladies that wouldn’t have given me the time of day in America was exciting and a huge ego boost, but you had to keep things in perspective. Poltava and Sumy were very friendly, historically significant towns. I enjoyed meeting the ladies in these two towns. The bus ride to these cities with the other guys on the tour gave us each time to reflect on the girls we met in Kharkov and what the girls in Poltava or Sumy may be like. The socials in these two towns were great and well attended. I think there were at least eight ladies to each guy in all three socials, which made it almost surreal compared to what we are used to back home. I think the most important lesson I learned on this romance tour was to make as many contacts as possible with both the ladies AND the guys on the tour. Now that I am back home in the U.S., I have been able to email some of the ladies I met on the tour. The fact that I had about four or five ladies that I met makes it nice as I can now decide which ones I’d like to come back to Ukraine and spend more quality time with. Most of the guys that I met on the tour were all super friendly and I’m still in contact with a few of them. Some of them have already planned to go back to Ukraine and I am also hoping to go back and visit some of the ladies I met on the tour.

This past October I made the trip to attend the tour



John,

Helen the manager of the Davao office has been trying to get me to attend a tour there. This past October I made the trip to attend the tour and from the start it was a great experience. The hotel staff was great also from the time of arrival at the airport to check-in. Helen met with me on the first day and we went over my invite list and was able to add a lady at the last minute. The staff at the office was great and even set a date with lady later on the first day. My buddy is a person from the office was very helpful and when I told them of an idea I had they suggest that I get flowers for my invites that will be there. They also ask me who I wanted to have the first dance with this was a surprise for as this dance was before the start of the social. As we moved from table to table and if there was one of my invites at the table they would try their best to have me sit near or next to them. When my choice to do the paper dance with had to leave I ask my buddy to ask another person to be my partner. That person was my partner in the paper dance and we had a date on Saturday. At the social Helen and her staff make sure that you have fun and keep things moving so it’s possible to meet as many ladies as possible.

Thanks for a great time,

William

My input and experience regarding AFA Romance Tours, specifically to Cebu, Philippines…



Dear Bud Patterson,

My input and experience regarding AFA Romance Tours, specifically to Cebu, Philippines…GO! Just GO! Do not write ANY letters unless you have a seat on a plane! No substitute for being there, no real need to waist any money writing anyone…Romance Tour or Asian Club Tour, the key factor is; You Must Be There Physically! Arrive with a list of possibilities or sort through the profiles when you get there…but you have to get there!

When you have Plane Tickets. then if you are really compelled to do so, only write to a few women. Starting a letter with “I am coming to (Her city) on (Date)…I find your profile interesting maybe we could get to know each other a little before I arrive? That format will get a response, if she is genuinely interested… no lady that is serious about a relationship wants a pen-pal or e-mail buddy…THEY WANT TO SEE YOU, Touch You, Look into Your Eye’s and know you are real! Isn’t that what us GUYS WANT TOO? No letter can do what one actual meeting can accomplish.

I know because I wrote two women before I arrived on my tour. One of those women is now my Fiancée…we were engaged after our first meeting! Sometimes you write expecting her to be the one, and she is not. No Chemistry, nice lady but not your future. In my case the chemistry was WOW! The in person meeting could not have been a better meeting; it by far exceeded both her and my wildest expectations!

Both women (yes only two) that I corresponded with were over forty which was in my desired age group…what your preferred criteria may be is your criteria, you may eliminate the perfect woman for too strict of a requirement list …but stick to it and focus! Not easy to focus with over a hundred pretty ladies, and girls, with bright expectant brown eyes, and long black hair, all trying to get your attention! The socials are a whirlwind of fun games, laughter, talking and meeting with every lady! It is a lot to take in…keep notes and stay …focused! Your may actually find the woman of your dreams…I did.

One final note. Do not sell yourself or her short! Deciding on your future partner in life for the rest of your life is not an offhand decision. It takes time and turmoil of emotions for both of you. Get to know the woman, and let her know the man. Take as much time to do that as you possibly can…stay for the two week tour (or longer is possible) a week or ten days fly’s by entirely too fast.

This is Brian from North Dakota.



Hi Guys,

Hi Guys. This is Brian from North Dakota. I went on the sept. Odessa tour. I had such a great time that I now am now addicted to the Ukraine. I have never been addicted to anything before. I could tell you about how wonderful the hotel Londonskya in Odessa is. How much fun we had going to the dance bars. How AFA is top shelf all the way. I want to tell you about how beautiful the woman of Ukraine are. One of the best parts of the tour is talking to the guys over breakfast. One morning I said to a table of 5 guys. Guys I think if you took 50 American woman 25 to 40 years old and 50 Ukrainian woman the same age. You might have 1 calendar girl model on the American side but you would have 7 to 8 on the Ukrainian side. The guys went nuts. After a 10 minute discussion. We agreed you would have 14 to 15 on the Ukrainian side. No lie they are 15 times as beautiful as American women. For me the best treasure I discovered on the tour was the woman in the 33 to 40 age range. I think that in America and the Ukraine you can find 20 to 30 year olds that are beautiful, but they are not women. You find a truly beautiful 37 year old and that is one of the most beautiful woman on the planet earth. I think at each social there were 4 to 8 of then. Kid you not. They are truly one of the most beautiful woman in the history of man kind, If you see what a wonderful treasure this is you gotta go. Im going on the July 2015 tour. Lets do it. I don't see a better time to go. 5 million more women then men in this wonderful country. 40 percent of the woman will never be married. In America we teach our daughters. Get a good education. Go to collage and get a good job so she can stand on her own. She doesn't need a man. In the Ukraine they teach there daughters be a lady. Always be beautiful. Find a good husband and be a good wife and mother. That's what im looking for. A hard working good wife that wants to be taken care of. This is a moment in time guys.

Thanks guys

One of the best times of my life!!



John

One of the best times of my life!! Great trip. So much fun. Bud is such an awesome tour leader. He was also a lot of fun. And Anna V. helped me out many times, too, nudging me in the right direction, or introducing me to girls I liked at socials.
I think the hardest part of the trip, was choosing which amazing and beautiful woman to spend our limited time with. I met more women that I had chemistry with in one week, than I probably would in a year here in America.
Even though I met someone I like a whole lot, it is tempting to go again in the future just to have fun, hang out with Bud and Anna, and the other awesome people I met (Ken, Ron, Joe, David, Scott, Juan). It's crazy, but I had just as much fun hanging out with the guys, as I did with the gorgeous women. Of course, having a beautiful, classy, lady on your arm, makes everything else better.
It probably wouldn't be a bad idea in the future, to privately remind some of the guys of reality. A couple of the guys on the trip, should have probably just been grateful that such gorgeous girls were even talking to them!
Another idea, is to pass out a sheet at the end of the night to every girl at the social, with the name and picture of every guy on it. Then, have them put a check mark next to every guy they would like to see again. Or, better yet, a number from 1 to 10, of how interested they are in each guy. Then, use those results to arrange more successful dates the next day. I know this would be a large administrative and logistical undertaking, If I ever go again, I would even volunteer to do the work on something like this for free, because I think everyone may end up winning, both girls and guys, and AFA and affiliates. From a profitability standpoint, guys are going to be more willing to spend more money, over a longer time, on women who are very interested in them. This system may help some future couples find each other.

The main thing I want to say though, is...

THANK YOU!!!!!

Na Zdorovie, Chris

P.S. Feel free to call me to talk about any of this. As you can probably tell, I am a big fan of AFA, and of helping dudes finda the love.

In case you don't remember me...



Hello bud,

How are you doing? In case you don't remember me, I was on your Kiev/Poltava tour in November 2013, I was commicating with a lady in Poltava before the tour, and I finally meet her in Poltava back in November 2013 thanks to you and your organization, Tatiana and I where married on the beach in Jamacia on August 28, 2014. We are now in the process of her and her daughters immigration to Canada.

Thanks for your help

Overall I had a positive experience...



John

Overall I had a positive experience. the pace was a little fast for me but seemed to work well. The only thing that I think would improve my experience would have been if I had understood a little better the psychology and cultural nuances when dealing with Ukrainian Women and how they differed from my experience with American Women. I would recommend this tour to others and the strongest recommendation that I can give is that I will be returning to Sumy and if my present lady there does not work out will engage your local affiliates through you. I think this thing that I did on a lark could lead me to a happy life. Thanks you to all your staff for the help they provided. The only thing negative to say is that the socials became to loud at some points, I understand that this was to provide entertainment for the ladies, providing a quite place in the venue would help.

There isn't enough room to tell you what a wonderful time I had



John

there isn't enough room to tell you what a wonderful time I had. The new catch phrase is top shelf AFA is and was top shelf all the way. We had a blast the vacation of a life time my friend. I think that everything happens for a reason and having a man the caliber of Bud Paterson has to be a act of God. I don't know if you heard about my motivational speech but it very well could have been one of the greatest speeches in the history of man kind. And then the wonderful moment that followed was so wonderful that it was worth the price of the tour right there. I have lots to talk about. and am running out of room. I will send you more text in the future. THANKS AGAIN John it was top shelf all the way!

Strange how things in our lives change.



Dear John Adams and Bud Patterson,

Strange how things in our lives change. Three years ago I sent you a resume wanting to work for you doing seminars and tours, two years ago I asked for your permission to include your company's name in my book. A request that you graciously granted.

Never did I think that I would be writing this email at that time. Yet here I sit in my rented townhouse in Mactan, Cebu, Philippines doing just that. My life this year has been at my lowest when my wife of 39 years passed away and at my highest when I finally met the lovely lady I found on your site in Cebu.

Marlyn was a lady that I though “well write her she probably won’t write you back anyway.” (At that time I was having zero success writing and emailing ladies in China and I was thinking I wanted to steer clear of the Philippines and the little girls of 18-25 who make a large percentage of the Philippines profiles.) I will be damned if she did not actually write me back! She wanted to know why any man would be interested in her …because she was OLD and over the hill at 42?

That was the beginning of several very honest and rather intimate letters in which we discussed so many things…(I wasn’t going to write any letterrs…I wrote her and one other woman because I was coming to Cebu for other reasons as well.) That developed into emails, and phone calls. I cannot thank Jim and the Cebu Staff enough for all their help and assistance! They were instrumental in making my and Marlyn’s relationship a success! Apparently NINE of the men on this social tour were also engaged before the end of the two weeks! I image the Cebu staff was also key in making those connections happen

Marlyn and I decided to meet before the social to eliminate distractions and that meeting was beyond anything she or I, had hoped for, or dreamed of. As I held her hands in mine as we talked over a cup of coffee her eyes were tearing up, I asked if she was alright? She said through teary eyes; “You are REAL! And so much more that I had dreamed!” I was thinking the very same thoughts! By the end of that cup of iced coffee we were both sure that we have a future together.

She and I are now engaged and working on her passport and the K-1 Visa process. I am staying here while she struggles through the red tape and bureaucracy. While doing so we are both becoming closer and developing a better understanding of each other. Yes, no matter what I say or try to explain, her life in Arizona will be nothing like it has been here in the Philippines and I will never again take so many things in my daily life in Arizona for granted. I know with my help she will adjust and we will overcome the culture shock.

If I can ever do anything for AFA, for John Adams, or Bud Patterson, please do not hesitate to ask. I will gladly provide referrals any info via email and I am open to be on your interviews or BLOGS when I return to Phoenix. That I hope will happen by February 1, 2015 if I do not need to return prior for K-1 Visa reasons or a crisis at home.

Thanks again for being a company that is designed to lose their clients by making the clients dreams come true!

We will start the K-1 Tuesday…thanks for making dreams come true.

All The Best,

Robert M. and Marlyn O.

AFA may not have the selection of women other sites have,but you have honesty...



Hello Anna how are you doing?

I'm just left Max and the new girl Oksana,Olga was kinda a bust,well I think she just wanted some cash,I really think the reason she did not want English lessons from Max is when he teaches I send the money to AFA,she just wanted the money sent to her to pocket the money,trust me she wasn't learning English ...I will tell you about the new girl but first I would like to write some about my experience ... Anna,I will admit I wanted to see more girls on your website,so I started using other sites.Well I could make this so long and boring and name the sites but you would lose sight of the reason I am writing you. I would just like to write,that AFA may not have the selection of women other sites have,but you have honesty on your side...I do not know if this matters,but you told me many months ago Olga was from another company,I believe this to be true and the Anna in Odessa did not get to interview her for the site, Anna is quite different but I think her and Max have a lot of passion for their jobs.They really want you to find someone,and this is what AFA is all about,the other sites I used just wanted well.....me to give them money,they set me up with someone that was beautiful,and way to young,someone that had no intention of getting married just a easy way for them to make money.. I guess I'm just trying to write you don't find company's like AFA in this business, I have found all but you are scams... Anna has known me for a while and suggested I go out with this girl Oksana,...wow what a treat she is so kind, humble and honest, I was so taken by her,so many thanks go out to Anna for helping in getting a date with her....Max's has been translating for us,and he makes me feel,well as if he was not even in the room with us,i have used translators with other sites and it seems like ,well come on dude lets just go to expensive places,do things they want to do but the expensive dishes,Anna Max will ask permission just to order something to drink...I'm just saying no matter what happens with Oksana and I your Anna and Max's has made my trip fantastic,what a good team you have here.....I will call you when I get back please say Hi to Bud and John for me and tell them to keep up the honesty and integrity,it's what sets you above the other agency's....

keep smiling,

Stephen

Well to say the least am enjoying the Cebu tour



Dear John and Bud,

Well to say the least am enjoying the Cebu tour. Arriving early to meet this lovely lady was a very good idea! Marlyn and I were engaged by the end of our first coffee date….damned intense coffee date… or the girl at the coffee stand slipped us a love potion! Obviously we met each others expectations. She agreed we would spend more time together if she stayed with me at the Waterfront in Cebu City. When she got to the room she was nervous and I was smart enough to understand why. I made it very clear that sex was NOT a condition…Makiing Love would only happen when she was ready! she was so touched she cried…but with a smile like I had never seen…

We will start the K-1 Tuesday…thanks for making dreams come true.

All the best,

Robert and Marlyn

I have just returned from my recent Euro Club visit to Kiev.



John,

I have just returned from my recent Euro Club visit to Kiev. That was a great experience. This letter is to ensure that you know how wonderful the service of Anna V. was in Kiev.
Anna made sure that each day was full of dates with wonderful ladies. She also made the ladies feel very comfortable with the situation. Making the ladies feel comfortable is big challenge when they realize that I am meeting with many other ladies simultaneously.
As you know, Anna V. also served as the tour group leader for the trip to Mariupol and Lugansk in mid-April. She provided wonderful assistance during that period as well.
Anna S. in Phoenix was also great in helping me to arrange this trip.

Thank you to Anna V., to Anna S. in Phoenix, and to your staff for a wondeful trip.

My May 2014 tour experience to Chongqing, China



John,

Your staff in Chongqing went above and beyond to provide a great tour experience. The socials were well-attended. The sight-seeing tour was as authentic as it gets. The manager made it a point to be available and asked the question "Is there anything that you need?" on more than one occasion. I met a wonderful lady. I also had an enjoyable vacation in a place that I would have had a difficult time visiting without the support that AFA provided.

Thanks for your help,

This was the best tour I have had from AFA,



John,

I attended last year's "romance" tour in Chongqing, and was very happy with the results. This was the best tour I have had from AFA, the most successful in terms of meeting women with strong and serious intentions towards marriage and family. The manager in Chongqing, Mr. Yuan, was the most service-oriented and customer-focused manager I have ever had on a tour. He was always available, and usually proactive in finding and fulfilling the needs and desires of his clients.

I met my fiancee and after completing the USA K1 visa process she joined me in Chicago last month, and we will soon be married! We are very excited and happy about our new life together! Feel free to use me as a reference, for either the women or the men on this year's tour; my best wishes for all of them!

Sincerely,

Despite very concerning external events,



John,

Thank you very much for the wonderful experience on the tour to Mariupol and Lugansk. Despite very concerning external events, I and the other tour members had a great time. All the tour members I spoke with, were very glad that they took the tour. We tour members were almost unanimously grateful for the many memorable experiences and opportunities to pursue future personal relationships. This very positive experience is very much due to your tour leaders, Joe and Anna, the manager of your Kiev office. It was very clear that Joe and Anna were doing everything possible to maintain safety for the tour members in the face of external events that changed daily. Also, Joe and Anna did everything possible to allow myself and the other tour members to individually meet with as many ladies as possible. The tour members who I spoke with, as well as myself, will be very interested in future tour opportunities with AFA, due to this very positive experience.

Sincerely,

Apologies for getting back to you so late.....



John,

Apologies for getting back to you so late. I will put on paper what I had shared with you telephonically on my trip to Lima Peru. I had an awesome time, was way more than I had expected. There were about 100 girls at each social and eight of us guys, need I say more. The bonus to this trip are the guys I met on this tour. Just like John says in his videos, breakfast time is the time us guys looked forward to. Listen to the stories of the dates the night before and the dates coming up that day. I still keep in touch with a couple of them.

In closing I will say as one of the girls told me in Lima "What happens in Peru stays in Peru".

I will definitely be going on a tour again this year, I'm just having difficulty on choosing where to go.

I am writing this to express my sincere gratitude to Helen and her staff....



To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this to express my sincere gratitude to Helen and her staff for all they have done to make my experience in the Philippines not only pleasant but extremely successful. I cannot begin to tell you the kindness and professionalism of Helen and her staff.

I attended a group tour to Davao in March of 2013. I had been writing one particular woman and she seemed like a kind and genuine person. So I decided to take a chance a travel there on one of the tours offered by AFA. Upon arrival I was immediately impressed by the attention we were given by Helen and her staff.

Well I am happy to announce that the trip was everything I hoped it would be and more. I met the love of my life. Ms. Evelyn Dalupere. I fell head over heels for Evelyn and I felt she had the same feelings for me. I decided to ask for Evelyn’s hand in marriage. Being a guy, I was not sure about the best way to propose so that it would be romantic and memorable. Not to worry. Helen and her staff assisted me every step of the way. We had a table poolside at the Marco Polo Hotel with rose pedals leading to our table. We had a wonderful dinner and when desert came there was a ring on top of Evelyn’s desert choice. Needles to say she was taken off guard momentarily but as she realized what it was I immediately asked if she would do me the honor of becoming my wife. To my joy and amazement she said “YES”.

You would think that would be the end of Helen and her staffs involvement in our love journey but that wasn’t the case. Helen assisted Evelyn with her paperwork and photo’s for our petition for a fiancé visa. She even accepted long distance charges to her personal cell phone to assist me with my questions and concerns.

While there were dozens of attendees at the tour Helen made us feel as if we were the only couple there with the amount of personal attention we received. I want to sincerely thank Helen and her staff for everything they did for us. I am happy to announce that our Fiancé Visa request has been approved and the National Visa Center is forwarding the approved visa petition to the U.S. Embassy or the Consulate in Manila.

Oh, one other thing that I think needs to be mentioned. I went back to Davao in November to see my darling Evelyn. Helen invited us to her office and gave us some excellent advice. Then to our amazement, invited us to her residence for the Manny Pacquiao fight and the most amazing buffet of food that you could imagine. She even arranged my transportation to the airport.

Thank you Helen and thank your wonderful staff for all you have done to make this experience the most memorable and productive (engaged to Evelyn) that I could imagine.

Sincerely,

Alan.

So to ask her to go for a event the next day. Otherwise I might of miss the chance to meet my fiancée Evangeline. I believe that it was a divine hand and great people that made this happen.

Just a note to thank you for an excellent tour...



Dear Ken and John,

Just a note to thank you for an excellent tour that you organized for our group in Santiago, D.R. I think I speak on behalf our entire group to say that your entire staff were most friendly, efficient, professional, and accomodating in every way. Every detail was accounted for from the initial airport pick up, to providing us detailed lists for the two socials, and finally seeing us back off to airport. Gustavo came to our hotel each morning to greet our group and he individually attended to each and every concern of our group, to make everyone very comfortable and ensure the overall tour was most enjoyable. Your office manager Yulai met with us every day and we were all very impressed that she even came to our hotel at night on her own time to help translate for our group. The translators were outstanding and of great help to all. I would highly recommend your agency in Santiago, they are deserving of praise and we would not hesitate to return.

With best regards and we are hoping to take another tour soon!

I Just wanted to give you some feedback on the May 23 to June 5 tour to Chongqing...



Hi John,

I Just wanted to give you some feedback on the May 23 to June 5 tour to Chongqing that I just returned from. Unlike the Ukraine tours it was held in a brightly lit room with soft music which made communication very easy. I appreciate that a loud party may attract more girls but this environment was much, much better for getting to know people. We all had our own translators and we each rotated from table to table and talked with every girl who was there. The girls who turned up were genuine, honest and in no way did they want to take advantage of us. Of the girls I dated I always offered taxi money, gifts and expensive meals however they preferred to show me traditional places that were very affordable, often gave me small gifts and taxi money was always refused. I was told that many of the girls at the social were not poor, but actually wealthy with businesses and their own real estate. A few girls had even caught flights from distant towns just to attend the social. In my opinion the socials and invitation list was organized very well.

The tour manager, Yuan was new to managing tour groups however I think he did a very good job. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed, he was accessible, easy to contact and gave good advice on the city, its attractions and things to do. I was most impressed that while we were in his office looking at profiles he was able to give additional information about the girls as he seemed to know most of them. There were only one or two girls that he said he did not know much more about, but he still knew details about their profiles without looking at them. He joined us for breakfast each morning. As I was there for the full tour I said he was always welcome to join me, but it was not necessary as I often enjoyed breakfast in one of the gardens on my own or occasionally outside the hotel. He always called me a few times each day to make sure I had everything I needed and was doing alright. The only additional recommendation I would make to the office is that on the Ukraine tours they always had a printed copy of girls and their profiles so you could look through a book. The profiles were only on the computer. Apart from this it was a very clean and pleasant environment (with a spectacular view of the city I might add.) I would also like to mention that Yuen noted my birthday fell on May 26th which was the same day as the second social. He organized a huge cake wishing me a happy birthday which was a very present surprise.

There was apparently a policy of no dating the translators unlike the Ukraine tours where it happens often. I spent a lot of time with these girls and they are real assets to AFA and should be treated as such. If travelling to China I would make sure I visited Chongqing so I could see these girls again and catch up. Of note, my translator Wendy, at my request took me to an animal shelter that took in homeless dogs. Her friend drove us out there, we bought a large box of dog snacks and I was able to make a donation to the shelter. Bud Paterson told me that AFA made charitable donations in the Ukraine when we did a tour. Last year in Kiev, Poltava and Sumy we donated about $2500 (of which AFA matched our donations so it was actually $5000) to orphanages and children’s hospitals. I was told this was not normally done on Asian tours which I think is a bit of a shame as it is a good policy. I also spent time with Apple after Terry left as she was his translator. We got along very well as friends and because of the no personal contact policy I hired Apple for about $90 for the day and we got our hair shampooed, foot massages, did some shopping, went to the movies to see Oblivion (which I highly recommend you see – awesome!), and had a great dinner at a traditional Beijing style restaurant. I can honestly say it was one of the best days of my tour. I understand the need for a working relationship between translators and clients, but policy or not I choose my own friends and relationships even if they work for AFA.

Overall I am very happy with the tour and had a great time. I felt very safe at all times, even after a few drinks at the local bar with short walks back to the hotel late at night. The people are friendly, very helpful and always happy to assist tourists. I can think of several small incidents on my Ukraine travels in most cities where I have been left feeling like I have been scammed or taken advantage of, but not in Chongqing. I would recommend keeping this city as a tour destination and have suggested it to a few friends from previous tours I have been on, and am already looking at future tours with AFA in Asia because of my experience in Chongqing. I would be grateful if you could pass my thanks onto the staff for all their assistance during this trip and I look forward to travelling again with AFA.

Kind wishes always,

Jason B..

John

I just got back from San Jose Costa Rica. I want to complement Gustavo the tour leader. He is incredible. He worked hard to ensure that all the guys had a good time and plenty of contacts with women while we were there. I call him a good friend and without his extraordinary hard work the trip would not have been successful.

Please give him an "Ata Boy" and my thanks.

I will take the opportunity you have provided with this survey to tell you what you already must know.



John

I cannot simply describe what a great job Bud and Anna did on this tour. It would be insufficient. My impression of them both is that they are not doing a job; what they "do" during each day of the tour is live in the passion of the work of your organization. It is unique. Anyone running a company dreams of having it filled with people like this.

If you need any more feedback please feel free to give me a call.

Best regards,

I thought I'd share with you the good news



Hello John & Tanya,

I thought I'd share with you the good news that I finally met the lady of my dreams! My fiance Natalia is from Ul'yanovsk, Russia. Although we met through another online site, I never would have gotten started on this journey without that first AFA tour in 2004. Natalia and I started corresponding just over a year ago. Believe it or not, I had nearly given up hope and she initiated our correspondence! After writing & skype for six months, I visited her during the 4th of July holiday last summer and we got engaged right away! I knew she was the right one from the moment we met, and lucky for me, the feeling was mutual.

A few weeks ago we reached the "NOA2" stage on her visa and we hope to get her interview scheduled in the next month. We will get married this spring at the soonest possible date.

I have several relatives in Phoenix and still visit Tucson from time to time for work, so I hope we will have a chance to meet you for lunch or dinner someday in the future when we visit the area.

Cheers,

Kurt Z.

By Far One Of The Top Highlights Of My Life!



Ms. Helen (Mom Helen),

I can't sing your praises enough! The skillful facilitation of such an event by you and your amazing, extraordinary and warm staff was second to none. I was extremely impressed with how flawless things flowed from beginning to end. The patients that you and your staff exhibited was superb, truly a comfort to the group of men that I accompanied on the tour. The time I spent there in Davao March 14-20, 2013 with you, your staff and over 200 beautiful Filipina women has and will continue to impact my life from that day forward. The experience is ever present on my mind. My buddy Lenj (I hope I spelled her name correctly) was superb. If I didn't find my life partner during this tour, I want her as my buddy when I return for the next one. I do believe that I found who I was looking for, but time will tell if she has found what she is looking for. One thing I know for sure is that there is a woman in Davao that is ready for the deluge of love and affection that I have to offer, and that she is offering too.

This experience was truly overwhelming! One of the best investments I ever made in myself, in my life and its quality! Thank you for providing such a powerful life changing service. You and your staff are impacting the future of so many people in a profoundly positive way that your name and deeds will live on for generations. I will be in contact with you and your staff as I pursue my goal, either for assistance with wedding and visa or with my continual such. You know what, y'all fill like family!

Sincerely,

Yes, I met several wonderful people



Yes, I met several wonderful people. It was much better than I expected. I think I have found someone special in Poltava, but we will see how communication goes. Elena in your Poltava office has been wonderful, going above and beyond for me. She took me shopping for flowers on Woman's Day and showed me around. That was huge for me because of the communication issues I faced. Thanks Again for a great vacation! It was my first time overseas!

I appreciate your apology more than you can know



Bud and John:

I appreciate your apology more than you can know regarding direct involvement in my finding a sole mate. The fact you had John contacted me when I was freezing my rear off in Kiev was especially appreciated. I met a special lady on my own, but only for the fact that I felt comfortable being in Kiev in the first place because of AFA I would never have met her. Who cares how? I was a little more free-spirited because of you guys! The point is that you and what you and AFA stand for made it happen! Like I told John I am very sociable, and as he joked I'm not an ogre either, which I took to heart and he helped to put my skills to the test.

What you do is incredible! There is no measure to what individuals will do, but there is a measure to what someone seeking true love will do. Following what advice you and AFA offer will prove more than beneficial to anyone who heads your advice! Thanks Bud, I love your book!

Bud, you offer amazing blogs also! Thank you!!!!

I have a challenge though!

Think about what a "Mad World" that Gary Joules presents in his rendition of the' Tears for Fears' song. I think you will find an interesting perspective as a result, especially when he says, "expand your world" at the end. This not only relates to ending needless depression of those seeking a loved one that AFA can assist with introducing a solution, but also it points out how love heals with respect to AFA's efforts to help orphans in Ukraine.

I've attached happy photos of me with someone I would never have met had it not been for AFA, Bud, John, Bob , Anna, etc., and the courage they provided me to explore my options to find a true soul mate. I appreciate the opportunity to see if she and I are right for one another!

Thank you!!!

Overall the tour was everything that I expected



John,

Overall the tour was everything that I expected. Some issues of course came up but nothing that wasn't addressed professionally and timely. The socials were fantastic. The staff was great especially Mary Grace (Mammasan). I would recommend this tour to anyone with the same goals. Now if I could just expedite the K1 visa process all would be great.

I wanted to write about my experince on the Ukraine/Cebu tour



I wanted to write about my experince on the Ukraine tour and my tour to Cebu,Philippines. First let me say that both AFA staffs on both of those tours were really helpful and polite with my needs for the tours, Then let me say that on both tours I was able to not only meet several of the ladies I had written letters too but also other woman at the socials and in my opinion there were attractive ladies at both tours and to be Honest one of the hardest things about the whole process is getting to the point of choosing one young lady to pursue a relationship with out of all the beautiful women. Now for me beyond the beauty it is all about Chemistry and finding the one who clicks with you and of course you must click for her as well. I exchanged personal Info with some ladies in both the Ukraine and Cebu and I still am writing and skyping with some of them and now I feel like I am going back to Cebu in June to meet one young ladies family and see what may happen! The one piece of advice I can give is not to go on a tour with to high of Expectations and just let it all happen naturally and it will, and the young lady I am going back to Cebu in June to see was not one of the girls I had been writing, I just met her at the social and it just got better and better. The bottom line is this, I bought the tours and made it happen and having the AFA staff waiting to help you when you arrive is a HUGE advantage! Guys the money you will spend can be made back, the possible relationship you could have is priceless! Be positive, open your Heart and make it happen

I watched the Bachelors Abroad show tonight here in Kansas City



John,

I watched the Bachelors Abroad show tonight here in Kansas City. Thanks for the email reminder. I think it is a big hit, and it was nicely directed and put together well! It had great diversity and honesty with the three men you chose for interviews. They were all three very different men in many ways to give a nice cross section of American men looking for the same thing in a life partner. And you did a very nice job of narrating and interviewing these men (Joe, Bob, and Bill), and you described the search process with a lot of truth and plain honesty that there will be the good, the bad and the ugly.

I very much liked your commentary about what you think of each of the three men's progress and what may be holding them back or how they are moving forward. You talked about their past, their personalities and the progress you think they are making and what they need to do perhaps to improve. It is a delicate matter isn't it? You and Bud must feel like they are all your children right? The show was good in also getting the men's own opinions in their interviews how they think they are doing. That is a very nice touch for a democratic wide view on both sides. This is what men have to do is to learn from each other and to interact, and to learn from you and the other tour leaders. The learning can sometimes be fun and sometimes be painful, but always necessary! Learning should never stop in this way but the "effort" should never stop either. Just as you said in the show, it takes a lot of hard work, a lot of time, a lot of money, commitment, trips, meeting and dating the girls, and yes some luck too. It takes a lot of stuff. And it takes some failures too. It all plays a role. All of these put together I call "Effort". The "effort" is the only thing that can make it possible with the right girl!

The experience that we all shared was one of the highlights of my life....



The experience that we all shared was one of the highlights of my life and definitely of 2012! It was my pleasure and privilege to share the road with such gentlemen! I know that I will never see dating the same way again. That was actually fun!!!! It was a true pleasure to share stories of all the amazing ladies we met at breakfast every morning and sometimes at drinks the night after. I learned so much from all of you that I THOUGHT I already knew!!!

I truly believe that 2013 will be an even better year than 2012 as we learn and apply the experiences we have all shared. I hope that all of you took away as much as I did in experience, perspective and friendship! I know that the ladies of Ukraine blessed me with their beauty, candor and friendliness and I hope to experience much more of that in 2013.

Happy New Year to you all!!!

Hello.
How are you?

My name is Juvenal G.
I like to thank you all of you for everything I experience in this trip to Odessa, Nikoleav and kherson.
I am very happy to had do it the tour. So. Thank you.

I hope if I can get a copy of the video and pictures of the social. Before I went to the tour many people tell me if I was crazy (insane). So now I want to let them know that is real. I want to let them see my pictures an video where I was in the social very happy. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of my own, because I lost my camera, I hope you can send me copy of my pictures.

Thank you all of you and I will go with you to another tour I hope soon.

Odessa Tour Dec. 2012

The tour was a total blast. It was very overwhelming actually, the socials. Having so many women to talk to at once is definitely something I was not used to. But the hotel was top notch, and all the staff members were polite,helpful, and courteous. If it doesn't work out with the girl I am dating now because of the social, I would certainly go on another one!

Thanks guys, the tour was totally awesome!

Greetings John and Bud,

I just wanted to drop you both a line of the fantastic time I had on the recent Odessa tour! What a superb and unique service that your company provides. I have never had so little sleep and so much fun! I always felt well taken care of by Bud, Max and the rest of the staff. I met a special lady at the Kherson social and things are progressing nicely, and at a very fast pace. Bud hummed the wedding march song as my girl and I left the social. What a genius Bud is. Ha. I realize a million things can go wrong and only one thing can go right but i still had a fantastic time.

Thanks to you all.

Best regards,

Tom

Thanks so much for your personal involvement in my Euro Club trip to Kharkov.


Hi John,

I really appreciate the extra effort that you exerted to make sure that my visit was successful and enjoyable. Over a period of four days I met eight wonderful ladies who were beautiful, intelligent and articulate. There are two, in particular, with whom I will continue to communicate, and hope to get to know better: Natalia is absolutely adorable, she has the same name as my favorite actress Natalie Wood, and both her mother and grandmother were also named Natalia. And Irina is "movie star" stunning.
Sometimes a lady does not look as good in person as she does in her pictures. But Irina, who looks lovely in her photos, absolutely takes your breath away when you meet her in person. She really does belong on a magazine cover or in the movies.

Also, "kudos" to Andre and Svetlana and my translator Irina who did a marvelous job as both an interpreter and adviser.

In summary, John, I have to say that Euro Club, like all of your tours and services, is a terrific value. And I would like to say that if any potential clients would like to hear a reference or an endorsement, then please feel free to provide my contact information to them. I would be happy to "sing the praises" of A Foreign Affair to anyone who is willing to listen.

Thanks again, John, and best of luck in all of your upcoming endeavors!

Warm regards,
Tom K.

I just wanted to say thank you. This was the most fun I have had in the last ten years. You and your staff were so professional and helpful which made the trip a great success for me and the other travelers. I look forward to many more adventures with your company and especially if you are the group leader. Anna was tremendous and everything was planned so perfectly and executed flawlessly. Your professionalism and genuine concerned for the happiness and wellbeing of the tour participants was truly amazing. I just wish I could say more but something's just cannot be put in words.

This is Jeff from the August tour group (I was the one Australian member).



Just wanted to send you a mail to say hi and also to thank you and all your staff for the wonderful job you did during the tour. Before going I really wasn't sure what to expect but I had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and helped me relax and enjoy the experience. Special thanks to Erlisa, Angel and Irish who all helped me a lot and kept me entertained.

For me personally I enjoyed the socials and also the wine bar night and pool party were both great additions to allow me to relax and spend time with a girl and also get to know some of the other guys on the tour.

I had a chance to meet a few girls and spend some quality time with one girl in particular so will see if anything eventuates there. Well after 2 weeks back I can definitely say I am missing Cebu and intend to visit again hopefully later this year so will be in contact about that.

I heard a number of the guys got engaged which is great to hear, I suppose from your perspective that helps make it a very successful tour and shows that what you're doing is working.

Best Regards

I felt compelled to tell you what a fantastic trip I had to Cebu



Hello John,

I felt compelled to tell you what a fantastic trip I had to Cebu and what smashing parties the two socials were for me.
These are the parties I was signing up for in Medellin 2010. Absolutely a blast!!

Thank you for without question, the best parties I have ever been a part of. You have a real gem in your Cebu operation with a staff headed up by Jim of pure gold. They are attentive, truly care about all the guys success in meeting the girls they are interested in, work tirelessly to improve the client experience and always, somehow, manage to say hello with a smile.
The ladies are exceptionally beautiful-I don't know why I ever strayed away from Asian women and their naturally exotic looks and bright personalities.
I would like to bend your ear for 5 minutes one of these days with a suggestion for placement of Phillipine Weekly back onto your home page with a direct link. PW brought the girls to life for me and Helen and Jim's idea of weekly videos is genius as gives us guys a glimpse into their actual lives. We see them as the are today instead of only still photo shots.
Again, thank you John for a life changing experience as I met many ladies I am interested in for the future.

Cordially yours,

Steve

Dear Anna

You have to be the best tour guide, organizer, professional individual I have ever met.

You made this tour a great success for myself and fellow travelers. You were such a great help to me on this trip and without your help I certainly would not have had the wonderful time and experiences that this trip brought me. Your professional appearance, knowledge and kind personality is a great asset to your company. It was a true pleasure to meet you, AFA is truly lucky to have such a person working for them. I hope to see you again on future tours. You were a person that could be trusted and counted on for assistance 24/7 during the trip.

Thank you again for all you did and I believe I can say for everyone on the trip we could not have had a better person along than you.

Having returned from the Kiev July tour



Good day to you

Having returned from the Kiev July tour I wanted to take this time to say Thank You.

Once again your company has shown why you are number one. Even with the problems this tour faced, they were handled by Helen in your Kiev office with real concern that above all else my tour would be enjoyable. Ever ready to help, is how I would describe Helen and her crew of professionals at your Kiev office. The last time I was in Kiev, your Kiev office was in the Rus hotel it's a comfort to know you were able to find such caring people to run new office location

Thank you again,

John.....hello, how are you?



Watched the show this evening and figured I send you a quick note.

Well, it is basically a done deal with Vika. I contacted Maria Jones and Vika has already completed all of her documentation, translation, and notarization. I did not push this, John. She initiated everything. And would you believe this? We Skype every day during my lunchtime, which is when she gets home from work. Three or four nights per week we Skype 9 or 10 pm my time as Vika wakes up 4 or 5 am to speak with me before she goes to work. We Skype all weekend long. Like school children, basically. We have Skyped every day since my return to USA except two days when Vika visited her family. Every day, John !!! But it is kind of fun.

Of course who knows what might happen, but I feel comfortable with you as you know, and I can truthfully say to you that I cannot see our relationship ending in a disappointing fashion. We get along way too well. Of course I have you to thank for all of this. I truly am grateful. And of course, if I can ever do anything for you or your company in any way possible, by all means please do not hesitate to contact me.

speak to some of the other tour members occasionally. Bill, Joe from Canada, Mike, and Joe. Glad to communicate with all of them. This entire process has been a great experience, and I am eternally grateful to you.

Once again, I extend my warmest wishes to you. Be happy. Be well.

Just want to say thanks again! I am glad I am in Poltava. The office here is very good at staying on top of everything. And fulfilling my requests. Also they are taking good care of my brother since he will be transported by driver back to Kiev when I go for my early morning flight out of Kiev. He will need to meet someone in the early am in Kiev to get his apartment and Natalia tells me one of the girls will go to make sure he gets into his apartment.

So far I found two nice girls and will be back in may to Poltava. Whatever you do......don't close the Poltava office. There are way too many nice ladies here. Not one girl has tried to extort me or take me to an expensive place.

Hi John, Thanks for the invitation.



We would be the perfect AFA couple for this show. I met my Barranquilla Beauty in 2008. We dated for 3 years, applied for a visa, then got married in Salt Lake City on December 18th, 2010. My wife Karen has her green card and we just celebrated our first anniversary. WE COULDN"T BE HAPPIER!

It gets even better. Her sister Ingrid recently met the love of her life through AFA and is now engaged to a great guy from Minnesota. They are in the visa process and plan to get married around December of this year.

Like a lot of American gentlemen my age, I had trouble finding romance here in the states. I tried just about every matchmaking service there is, but nothing worked. Women under 50 wouldn't give me a second look. Then I heard about AFA and my world changed forever. At age 57, I discovered the fountain of youth in Colombia, a beautiful 24 year old virgin with a heart of gold. I learned Spanish, wrote love songs for her and we spent many wonderful nights together on the beaches of Cartagena.

I am forever indebted to you. I found my true love through AFA, a beautiful woman who loves me more than I ever thought possible, a treasure forever.

Thanks for your consideration

Dear AFA,

I have been intending to write this email

since I got home from the Shenzhen tour, but the holiday season has kept me busy and I haven't been able to get around to it until now. I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful trip to Shenzhen. I wasn't sure what to expect and to be honest I went with some trepidation regarding to how things would go, but it worked out very well.

The hotel where we stayed was very nice. The neighborhood felt very safe and the staff there was very helpful when it came to getting around and providing directions to local areas I needed to go. I would stay there again should I visit Shezhen agian.

The first night there I met Amilia, the tour leader/manager for the Shenzhen office. She is a bright, young, woman who made the initial adjustment to China very easy. She was easy to talk to, friendly, and very accomodating. She handed out her cards to the group and told everyone that she would be available to help them at any time should the need arrise. Throughout the whole trip she was there to ensure our needs were taken care of and I apprecaited that very much.

The translators who I had the pleasure of getting to know, Amy, Careful, Anna, and Christine, were professional and very personable. They all seemed to care about helping us connect with the women we chose to meet. They were in many cases able to help convey the proper feeling of what was being said and really helped to facilitate a connection in a dificult enviornment.

The socials were very helpful. There was a good selection of women to meet at the socials in many different age groups and with various language abilities. All of the women I spoke with seemed very interested in getting to know me and seeing if we could develop a connection that could lead to something down the road.

The guys who were there for the tour were good too. There was a vast cross section of types of guys and I found that I got along with most of them. As with any group, there are always ones you get along with better than others, but in general I thought the tour participants were pretty interesting.

Overall, for me, I felt that the tour was a great success. I met some very interesting people and got to experience things that I never would have if I had not gone to China.

Thank you,

Todd M.

Mr. Patterson,

I apologize for withholding my survey until now.

The reason for the delay is simple. I wanted to gauge the customer service after the incredible experience to provide a fair and objective review. The tour was positively everything I expected and more. The staff was very sincere, helpful, and gracious; they went the extra mile to ensure I had a pleasant experience. What really makes me tip my hat off to them is the follow up friendship that has been established. The Shenzhen staff not only performed professionally, they have displayed their hearts are truly into their work. In my business, I can spot a potential business associate that is "in it for the money only" a mile away. This is certainly not the case in dealing with the fine team you have been fortunate to assemble. Please convey to your superiors, as well as your Shenzhen staff, the great job they are doing!

Sincerely,

Craig R.

Bud,

Just watched your 90-90-10 blog and I agree with you 100%.

I went to Chongqing China on a personnel tour last April after writing a couple of ladies there. The experience I had there was overwhelming. The staff went out of their way to help me and I developed a relationship with one translator that was really helpful. A couple of ladies went out of their way to impress me by taking me (they paid) to very nice restaurants on the first date. Two ladies impressed me by not trying to impress me. Our first dates we just walked around the area which gave us a chance to talk. Happy to say one of the these ladies and I are engaged and going through the fiancee visa process. Daisy and I hit it off very well and are looking to be together by next summer.

Thank you

Dear Yami (Yamileth),

First, how are you? I hope this message find you in the best; health, mind, body and soul. Second, and most important, I’d like to extend my appreciation for all your efforts on my behalf, and the other individuals attending the recent event held by your agency there in Barranquilla, thanks. It was my desire to extend my gratitude to your personally, as oppose to sending it to the main office.

Your dedication to achieving the objectives and making us all an intricate part of your overall success obtaining thereto was, to say the least, impressive. The constant care in which you catered to those clients who required it was at its upmost; professional, immeasurable, and your ability to make things happen in the blink of an eye goes without saying. Words cannot describe the consummate manager, advisor, logistician, and realist you are; the agency has the ideal, most importantly, right person to headline such an overwhelming task of doing the things that you make appear so easy and unnerving. Again thanks for all your efforts, not only on my behalf, but that of all the members attending the event; but most of all, to those fine and upstanding, lest I not forget, beautiful women, not only exterior, but that beauty revealed from with their very souls. Your means of honest assessments, and the truth and true nature of their (women and men) intentions was refreshing; you are the honest-broker that made pleasant that which was not believable, and to those who needed a dose of reality allowed them to look at their possibilities and objects; it was a pleasure to watch as you turned water into wine, metaphorically speaking of course.

Lastly, thanks for all your efforts in assisting me with the communication and arrangement of the interesting person I met (name withheld for her privacy), you know to whom I am referring (your taxi mate); thank you! It is my hope that she and I will get to know each other better, and should that happen, you will be definitely made aware; as we (with her approval) move forward with whatever processes required. With that said, please extend my appreciation to your agency, consummate professionals are far and few; you are by and large, the best at your craft. Yami, you exude that professionalism and strength, one who puts their heart into making successful any given task.

Finally, I would be remiss in my appreciation and admiration if I did not address that true professional, new friend, who aided, guided, and conveyed my words and thoughts in such an effective manner, Karen , my personal translator. Thanks for being, the honest agent to and for me, for looking out for my interests, and providing the best advice as I maneuvered through the maze of endless (pleasant and intriguing) conversations. You are the best! I would recommend you to any and every one; of course, this is in no way a slight on the other fine professional fellow translators by far. It is my hope, that the last translation session will be the most memorable; no words can describe your efforts Karen... You to, are the consummate professional who puts her heart and soul into making anything you engage in a success! Thanks.

Sincerely and Warmest Regards,

Mr. Calvin B.

Good day Anna,

I just wanted to write a short email to you from Sumy. I know a personal tour is not as good as a group tour, but I wanted to email you and let you know I am having a wonderful time here, and the translator, Nelly is just wonderful, she is really going out of her way to help me. I have yet to meet that special one for me, however: I am falling in love with Sumy. I have a few more days so please wish me the best. I do want to say, though; that if you need to, I will make my contact information available to anyone who wants to know about a personal tour. On the webcasts, not much is mentioned about personal tours, if AFA ever wants to, I will make myself available to call in and share my experience here with others like me, who would rather do a personal tour.. It is tough with their work and other plans, however, I would not miss this for the world.

Thank you again for everything.

Dear Bud and of course John.

This is the official letter to thank all of you and the other members of AFA for all the help you have extended me in my search for my Marina. I first became aware of AFA when I watched a movie about two brothers who went to Moscow. I had been a failure at finding a lady in the US. I have been married twice and as my photos show I am most assuredly not Brad Pitt. I will be 60 soon so I am not a man who would attract young women even though I am a young minded man. I am very active in doing volunteer work. I have several hobbies that I enjoy and I enjoy travel very much. Most of these activities are not as much fun when doing them alone-even flying which I love is not the same when alone. To make my average story shorter,I came to seek a lady in another country. I went to other web sites but I came to the conclusion that your company is THE way to success. I have your book,Bud and can say that while reading it many times I understand all of the ideas you put forth. I was not able to go on a tour but I am convinced that it is the best way to travel to another country to meet that one woman to marry. My frist trip to Odessa was because I narrowed my search and contacted several ladies there. Max and Anna were very helpful. ( I should say that the one lady I planned to meet on that trip was killed in her car some short time before I was to travel.) It was a very succeessful trip in that I learned many things that has made me successful in my search. On my second trip I was to meet Marina and we fell in love in about 30 seconds. It was mutual and today it is becoming a strong and wonderful thing. We did not speak the same language when we met but Marina has worked very hard to learn English for me. My Russian is very bad but I will improve. I can say that all that you say in your book is accurate. As I related to you last night, I was fortunate that Marina took very little time to become happy here in Nebraska. Tonight we enrolled her in "English as a second language" at the continuing ed. class. In closing, I can say that I could not be happier and Marina asks that I say she agrees (she looks over my shoulder as I type) Her English reading is very good! Thanks once again and if ever I can be of assistance to you-my friend-you only need to ask. I have some contacts in the local news media.

I will stop here by saying that I have shown the program which is on the We network as part of the "secret lives of women" to maybe 15 men and all agree that it may be THE way to meet the one woman to marry. All agree that John is a very lucky man-Tanya seems to be much too good for him---ha ha. God bless and keep in touch

Mac

p.s you mentioned some men in the Omaha area that you know. feel free to give my e-mail and even my phone number. I would welcome friends here for Marina and I to know

This was a trip of a lifetime for me.

The guys on the tour and the AFA staff was really great. I did meet somebody and we are working on our relationship and I will go back in January to propose to her. I have been writing her since March of this year and it was great to meet her in Poltava. We are now working on moving forward with our relationship. I will only go on another tour if this does not workout. I do need to know what type of services and support your company can offer me when I return to Poltava, and any good advice as I move along in the process will be appreciated. Thank you very much for doing everything you promised.

Please Post I had a wonderful experience while in Cebu,

the office there was absolutely awesome! They worked hard for everyone and you left feeling like you made a office full of friends. Everything proceeded in a class manner, I was very happy with the outcome. I meet a wonderful woman and am planning my return trip to attend her sister's wedding. I look forward to the relationship growing and seeing her again. Great job by all!

It's the best vacation I ever had,

and I got to meet many really fine ladies in Cebu. didn't finalize a deal yet but will probably go back to Cebu in November to see a couple of ladies that I really like, one in particular. I've never been one of the "cool kids" before that got to date all the really hot babes, but in Cebu "I still got it." If I don't finalize a deal then I will probably take the tour to Shenzhen China. looks like some really good ladies there too, but it would be hard to beat the Cebu ladies.

John Adams...

forgive me for not writing sooner.

But I wanted to wait until I booked a return trip to Ukraine. I was a tour participant on the AFA Odessa trip this past May. I also was a guest during the July webcast with host Bud Patterson. I wish to tell you everything on this trip far exceeded my expectations. Everyone was personable, professional, responsible, and fun. To be truthful John...I was somewhat skeptical going in. I had considered a trip of this type for a long time, and even went so far as to visit Costa Rica on my own. Anyway...in April I suddenly and somewhat impulsively decided to take the plunge. And...my only regret is that I did not take advantage of your services sooner. But then I would not have met the woman I did meet. John...I must confess that I never thought I would find love. Seriously. I figured I was destined to remain single. But this has all changed. For thanks to AFA, I met someone who I never dreamed existed. I feel as if I am living in a d! ream state or fairy tale. It is unreal. Nataliya and I Skype, email or speak every single day. Every day! I have retained the services of Maria Jones and am so excited for our future. I feel like a kid at Christmas. It's incredible. I am happy. And I have you to thank.

Please allow me to comment a bit on the trip. I am sure you received your share of complaints but I am not the type to dwell on minor annoyances or petty disagreements, etc. Besides, I am a 100% satisfied customer! As far as I can tell...you guys are amazing. Max is incredible. A true asset. I feel as if I made a friend for life. He even telephoned me back in the states on my birthday. I was sick during the trip as well and he and Anna got me medicine and even took me to the pharmacy. This was an experience in itself. Anna and Max...wonderful people and so good at what they do. I must also commend Mike. I thought he did a super job of handling things during the trip. You know John, it isn't always easy to deal with numerous personality types and I feel Mike simply was outstanding as our 'resident advisor'. Seriously, such a nice guy. I cannot say enough good things about him. I also need to mention Dean. I guess he is a tour veteran and he knows you guys fairly well. He helped me out a lot when I was sick and when we got back to Vienna he took charge of things regarding our accommodations. A real asset and a great guy. John, I could go on and on. The entire trip was fantastic. You guys and gals are all great. I was planning on meeting you at JFK in June but could not attend. I will definitely be attending the Philadelphia conference and look forward to introducing myself. As I mentioned in the beginning of this email, I am returning to Ukraine September 19 to see Nataliya. If there is anything I can do for you - any time, any place - please do not hesitate to let me know. Once more, I cannot thank you enough.

John,

I called the office at 602-553-8178 and I spoke with Liz at ext. 205

It's a pleasure doing business with a corporation whose employees are professional. Liz has the ability and speaking delivery capability that was calmly and rapidly taking care of my concerns. Liz worked to help me accomplish all I intended to do in the first place. To make the transaction that allowed all 4 letters written yesterday, myself more than willing to pay for those letters to be delivered.

I'm interested in Mei, from Shenyang, China. I will speak with you before I go to Shenyang, China- Dec. or Jan. to see her at my own expense. I'm also checking with a Christian based English language institute to teach English there in China. I do have a Doctorate in English. Information I rarely mention. I'm planning on moving to China to also give Mei and me plenty of time to get to know me, as well as myself getting better acquainted with her.

Thank you for your time,
Ricky J. T.

Hello all,
I came, I saw, I believe!

You can list me as a satisfied client. I attended this Odessa tour on a last minute basis. The airfare with Austrian Airlines was unbelievably. Austria Airlines rocks! Our accommodations during the return Vienna layover were excellent! We got a van from the hotel within minutes to the city. It was perfect. My luggage was safe. (Though weight was a problem) Well done!
As a rookie, I did not have any expectations. I did not have time to get any invitations out to anyone. I did not know anyone and really did not spend much time with your web casts. I knew about your seminars.
I have been using your website for letters on and off for a few years. I have spoken to Liz at AFA for years. Letters are worthless without a "face to face" contact.
My home is the beautiful historic town of Meeker, Colorado. It is a town of 2,500. We are near the Flattop wilderness. We have clean air and water. We have many mountain lakes and trails. Our waters of wild trout and forests of elk and deer attract world-class fishermen and hunters. Our mountains are known for skiing. We are experiencing a natural gas energy boom (drilling, new plants and pipelines).
We have new elementary school and recreation center. We do not have to lock doors and cars. Our children are safe. Parents can send their children to school on bikes and not have to worry. All of the single mothers on your database would approve of what out town offers children. We have a community college program. We have a dozen churches.
It is just a great place to live.
But there has and will always be a lack of single, educated, attractive women in Rural America. I have been single for these reasons.
I highly recommend that all your clients from small towns to get on a plane. I can't offer an opinion for single men from large urban areas.
Now, I admit that I made ALL of the mistakes that a rookie can make on this tour. The list is embarrassing. My experiences could make some clients sour on these tours. However, by its very nature romance is an imperfect process. I don't understand why Ukraine women want to meet American men. There is no question that this is true.
There is a "zero" chance of finding and attractive woman in my town. Your tours offer some light at the end of the romance tunnel. One must have patience, persistence and perseverance.
There are billions of single women on this planet. There is no way a guy should feel trapped in a small town. Whether it is the Ukraine, Russia, China, Peru, Philippines, Costa Rica or South America, AFA has found a way to connect people in a vacation like setting. This cannot be done by email- it is done by showing up.
I give you guys the THUMBS UP! I think Will, Max and Anna, interpreters, staff; bus driver undertook heroic team efforts to make stuff happen. I am grateful to the ladies for attending these events too. Everything costs money. Everything takes time. I never felt anything unsafe. I saw no drugs or illegal conduct.
I saw more attractive women in a week than I have ten years at home. I hope it was as fun for the women as it was for me. For the most part, the other members of this trip were just responsible guys.

My 2 cents!

Take care,
Joe F.

To Afa,

I want to thank you for all the help you have given me.

My trip went very well and I was pleased with your staff at San Jose. Gustavo was personable and understanding. His help was very important for me with the girl I had met. He has a solid relationship with his staff ,the girls that are signed up and the interpreters. The interpreter I used many times was excellent. Her name was Jessica..

Thank you again,

Hi Iya,

Thank you very much for sending me three tapes that I can share

to whoever will be interested joining your sponsored tours. I had a wonderful time specially in Nikolaev where I had the opportunity to meet with Irina who was the main reason why I joined the tour. Unlike the other members of our Tour Group, I only dated Irina. Some of the members whom I became friendly with asked me how many girls I dated and when I told them only one, they said: "Are you crazy? You travelled thousands of miles and had the opportunity to date so many beautiful girls and you dated only one?" They had a point, but see, I did not care. I accomplished what I set out to do - to meet the girl of my dreams and at the same time saw the beautiful country side of Ukraine. I wish to thank you and all the staff, specially Mike Harrison and Max for a wonderful adventure. They did a super job.

Sincerely yours,

Catalino

John!

I viewed the Dr. Phil show on "mail order brides"

and I felt unsatisfied with how much time the show gave you and your organization. I have watched other documentaries on this subject and I find that AFA is probably one of the better ones.

Just my opinion.

Click Here To Return To Tour Menu

Hello John!

I hope that you are doing great and that all is great with you.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and the entire Foreign Affair staff for the great job you did on the Odessa tour. I have to say that it was a very unique experience for me and I had a wonderful time and glad that I made the decision to go on the trip. I met so many nice people and had a blast. I definitely feel that going on the trip created some opportunities for me that I otherwise would not have had if it were not for the assistance of Foreign Affair. I would absolutely recommend the tours to anyone who may be thinking of going and those people who are not familiar with Foreign Affair. Who knows, I may go again someday. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the conference call on April 14th because I have another engagement, but I am looking foward to seeing the video. Once again, many thanks to you and your staff for your outstanding work and for making this memorable trip possible. It was a pleasure meeting you and should I need assistance in the future, I will be sure to contact you. John, I hope that you have a great day and please take care and stay well.

Hello John!

It's Henry from the Odessa tour! Everything is going great with Elena & I

we Skype everyday, and just celebrated our one month anniversary! AFA has helped change our lives in an incredible way! If you'd like to see it, I'll send you a link to a movie I created for us! We are planning a late June holiday together somewhere in europe. Anyway, I wonder if your Tanya would be available, to correspond with me, or even Elena. I have some questions from time to time, and I think it might be really good for her.

Thanks!

All the best!

Dear John and Tanya.

Cebu I am finally sitting here to express my feeling of gratitude.

I will try to be brief. I am an average man who found himself divorced and wondering what to do next. I am a person who needs to love as most of us do. I tried the various ways of meeting women---I guess after being married for over 20 years I had lost my skills at dating. I tried on-line dating at the insistence of my sons. What a waste of my time and now I have this feeling of futility. I knew that service men had been bringing wives home from countries for many years. I remember seeing a movie about two men and one wife---your story. At about this time I met a man who has a wife from the Phillipines. In the course of my travels I found several men who have married ladies from other countries with great success. I took the plunge and found a site that rated the companies doing this. I bounced around looking and was getting nowhere. Many ladies had contacted me but I still did not understand how to go about this. It was at this time that I first visited LOVE-ME. I was impressed immediately. I started a relationship with a nice lady from Kherson [ but how to get there] I decided to go on a tour with you. When I told Tatiana this she was happy then several days later she asked me not to come on a tour. She was sure that I would meet another and forget her. We agreed that I would come alone and she would be my guide. This was November 2009. I was planning to travel in January. In mid december I was told by her grown son that Tatiana was killed while driving her car. I was naturally devistated, but came to a decision to go to Ukraine on a single tour. I met Max and had a wonderful time --I also met with Tatiana's son. I fell in love with Odessa. Upon my return I decided to book a tour later and return to Odessa. In March I was contacted by Marina. We became close immediately. I continued to watch LOVE-ME and still played the field but no lady came close to Marina. After exchangingover 100 e-mails I decide to return to Odessa in September. We spent over two weeks living together and learning every day. I met her family and came home Engaged. We applied for her Fiancee visa through a friend who is here in Omaha and practices Immagration law. Today I received the letter that says that the visa has been granted and the papers have been sent to Kiev. We are very happy and now can plan to meet in Odessa and travel to Nebraska together. This may be just another average story but I know that It is my story and my success is because of the work that you do. I have talked to you on two occasions and really appreciated your caring manner. I have the episode of "secret lives of women" on my dvr and have shown it to several men. They all agree that Tanya is very beautiful and they like her easy going manner. The first time I watched it I planned to be alone but several men--including my son and his friends with several of my single friends. It was very inspiring and informational. I hope that someday I can meet you both in person so that I can look you in the eye and shake your hand. As I have said on the phone--I am at your disposal if I can ever be of service,you only need to ask. One of the things I have used most from your site is the BOOK. Bud did a fine job and I can attest that all he said has come to pass. Oh Marina is 48--I am 59 I could not be happier with my young lady. You can count me and marina as engaged because of your site. One last thought: I have had the pleasure of talking to many of your staff and they are all wonderful--I felt that I was being helped as a friend --not as a customer. Please relay my happy news to Liz--she is great.

Take care and our best wishes.

Malcolm

John,

After see your website, and like how easy it was to use

took the Barranquilla tour in December 2010, had a wonderful time meeting the women there. And I would like to thank Yami and her stuff for a great job they did for us, and setting up a date for me. It worked out great, I meet a very nice lady and we have started to visa work for her to come to the U.S. I will be visiting Sandra in June and meeting her family. And once again A Foreign Affair did a great job on this tour.

John,

I'm sorry if this reads a bit like a police report

thats what I'm used to writing. First I'll address conducting business with your operation in Phoenix. It was about business but always prompt, polite and professional. But there was always a personal touch that made it all work for me. I came to Barranquilla Colombia on the Latin Tour. When I cleared customs at three in the morning there was a driver holding a sign with my name on it. Later that morning I was met by a wonderful interpreter who took me to the office to meet with the first of the ladies I had requested to meet. Let me cut to the chase here and give you the facts. Yami and Cecilia made me feel welcome as their guest. Everything went smoothly until the second day. That was when I met Ruth and my life changed. There wasn't sparks, there was fireworks!I am now housed in a great apartment thanks to "Journey" (my interpreter and now close friend) and Ruth. Yes; I am staying in Barranquilla. Thanks to a great team in Phoenix and fantastic people here in Barranquilla, I couldn't be more happy and content. Here it is guys, you can write letters until the cows jump over the moon. Get off of your butt and change your life. You'll NEVER get to know any woman by exchanging letters. This is the real deal all the way. You think I am BSing you? I am putting my email address here for you to contact me about Barranquilla Colombia: (Please call (602) 553-8178 for the Perry's E-mail address Yes, contact me for the right way to become a happy man. And NO, I was not paid nor asked to write this. GET IT DONE!

Hello my name is Steve and I just returned from Cartagena

on the 29th of November. This was my first trip with AFA, and I truly did not know what to expect. I feel it is important to tell you that, your staff in Cartagena far exceeded my expectations. I know that latin people are very wonderful, but Sandra and the manager went out of their way to ensure my experience was wonderful. I am writting, because I would like their efforts to be acknowledged by both myself and your company. Even if it is only a simple email thanking them for their dedication, hard work, and friendly attitude. Because of their efforts, I would recommend them and your service to anyone who is looking for someone special abroad. As for me I believe that I have found the person I am looking for, but will use AFA when I return to spend time with her.

I wish you, your family, and your employees a wonderful holiday season. God bless all of you with happiness, success, and peace

Well i just hope i can go back again.

Hello John,

great to hear from you and thank you for a fabulous time.

your dedication to making our trip a success was evident to everyone. you and the staff went out of their way 24/7 to accomodate a diverse group of guys with different needs and wants. EXCEPTIONAL!

I am booking a trip back to Nickoli in June to be with Natalia who I met there. we are spending the week in the Crimea and will be starting the paperwork to bring her home. Things didn't work out with Elena (interpreter) as she had doubts and backed out which is better known now than later. before I go in June, can i call you for some traveling advice on best ways to get to Nickoli from Odessa and make arrangements in the Crimea, and the best place to visit in that area?

thanks again,

Buck

John

Privet to all the guys out there who are considering an AFA romantic tour.

Some of you are interested in Latin America or Asia. Because of past travels, I selected the Ukraine. So I decided to book the March 23, 2011 tour to Odessa, Nikolaev and Kherson although I had never visited these cities. Before I found AFA, I had been writing to several ladies on another site. This turned out to be an advantage because I was able to meet them and AFA had no problem with this although I had dates with many AFA girls. This preparation became a considerable advantage because I was able to "hit the ground running" and had dates immediately upon arrival. More on that later.

So what are the key factors for success? Well, I believe it is several things. AFA delivered all that they promised and more. We are all responsible for our own happiness. I would say that the keys are focused expectations and preparation. My dad used to say "Son, if you don't know what you are looking for, you will never find it". Simple, but so true.

Know in advance what you are looking for and do your best to not deviate from your criteria. These are the "dealbreakers". Examples are age, position on children, for me, height. For you there may be others. I don't mean to dismiss the magic. It happens. Are you willing to be flexible on your criteria for that special girl? Believe me, they are out there and they are more flexible than you.

Then there are expectations. How do you define success? Engagemet in a week? I saw it happen. However, for me I looked at it this way. I was determined to go on a much needed vacation and have a great time - I did. I reasoned that if I returned with the personal contact information of several girls that there was mutual attraction, great. That happened also, and I am working that now. Also, I will return soon, although not on a tour. I need to discover if there is serious attraction with these ladies and perhaps others. So, there it is for me. I am sure that it may be different for you. I saw this among the great group of guys on the tour. We are still in touch.

You have the opportunity to meet hundreds of girls of all types, ages and circumstances. The folks in the agencies and the fantastic translators will do all they can to help you and want you to succeed. I have no complaints about any aspect of the conduct of the tour. You will see for yourself. View the videos of past tours. They are very accurate and truthful.

Now for some practical advice. Make a decision and go!! Very few men do so. I had a date with a gorgeous girl and asked how many letters she received and how many guys she had met. She said hundreds of letters (she was very beautiful - a 10 over here, but I was only her second date!!) I am still in touch with her. When you go, you will be like a rock star over there. The fact is that there are millions more women than men. The Ukranian guys don't treat them well and die early. The odds are greatly in your favor. Age is a very minimal factor for them. Although I was not serious because of my criteria (which I very carefully followed), I was easily able to date girls much younger than my daughter!

Perpare ahead of time by selecting ladies that you feel you could be serious with and write them. Don't write hundreds of letters. It is not necessary. Be selective. The agency will help you meet them. That was key to my success. In 11 days and 3 cities, I had over 30 dates. Now I am home with a handful of ladies that could be "the one". Oh, and don't dismiss serendipity. I saw it happen. You meet a lady one way or another and lighting strikes - carpe diem! Just be sure to do what you can to get to know her and see if there is a possibility. On the flip side, be very careful about "junior high infatuation" and being crushed if doesn't work out. I also saw this happen. Get back on the horse and attend all the socials.

Forgive me for being so verbose, but I am on your side and want you to find happiness. We all deserve it.

Study all the information on the AFA site, ask for references (I'm happy to speak to you). Learn a bit about their culture and their language. Buy Bud Patterson's excellent book. Dial in to the calls and webcasts. Then get off the couch, book a tour and go!! It's the only way and worth every penny. (what would an 11 day vacation or cruise cost you and how many women would you be likely to meet?) I wish you all the best. You are thinking "outside the box" and being courageous. You are one of the few.

Poka,

Bob

Dear Liz,

My name is Bruce; and I am writing to you today

from my hotel room in San Jose, Costa Rica. I took your November 2009 tour to Costa Rica; where I met the most wonderful, smart and intelligent woman named Ana, that I have ever know in my life. She had such an effect on me, that I travelled on 4 different occasions back to Costa Rica. On July, 24 2010, USCIS recieved my I-129 pettion that I filled on her behalf; and while I was in Costa Rica (on one of my visits to see Ana) on Valentine's Day this year, I recieved notice that the I-129 Pettion was approved. Yesterday, April 5, 2011; Ana had her Interview at the Embassy and her Visa was approved and tomorrow at 3 pm, we are to return to the Embassy and recieve the Visa in person. I just wanted to thank you and John and Gustavo for everything. This company has truly changed my life and I am looking forward to bringing Ana back to the United States this Saturday.. By the way, Saturday is also Ana's Birthday; and I don't think that I could of given her a more appropiate gift. Thank you from the bottom of and Ana's heart. Please feel free to add my name and telephone to number to the list of many satisfied men who have finally found happiness with the help of your services.

Sincerely,

Bruce and Ana

Gentleman,

It is my belief that a job well done should be recognized.

So I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you that your man Gustavo in San Jose has treated me extremely well and provided excellent service and support while dealing with LoveMe.

I have been actively using your service in Costa Rica and have dated several wonderful Latina ladies. The experience was enhanced because Gustavo has been very supportive. He has done everything from translation to tips on restaurants and any other need I have requested.

Your service is #1, as is your man in Costa Rica,

Best Regards,

Ed W.

Dear Ron and AFA

Cebu I am writing this letter to sincerely thank you -

for making it possible to meet the love of my life! As you know I went to Cebu City on Feb. 5 th 2011 to meet Jocelyn who I met on the AFA site. Your staff in Cebu were very professional and kind to me. After the introduction Jocelyn and I left to for Cebu City to meet her family and to go to Boracay. To make a long story short we had our engagement party on Feb. 11th in Cebu City and the K 1 Visa process has been started. Your service has provided me the opportunity to find what I have been searching for so long. That search ended when I met Jocelyn. She is everything she said and so much more and most important we have fell in love over the last 5 months and planned to get married as soon as her visa is approved. I see some of the blogs on the Internet which talk about less than favourable results in finding a foreign bride. Well, I think it is like anything in life. If you go into it with your eyes wide open and really truly take the time and spend a little money for a service like AFA the results speak for itself. I will forever be indebted to you and thankful to you for the service you provided. I have to be the happiest man on earth right now!! I have attached a picture of Jocelyn and I.

Sincerely, Donald


John,

Tour photo Just a quick note to say I had a good time as always-

and the Machu Picchu portion was friggin AMAZING. Top 2 best trip ever. Phil and I climbed the mountain- 9000 ft. scared the hell outta me but I wouldn't take it back. Gringo bills was a neat little place, although they could use some alarm clocks as their wake up calls are non-existent, but they were really nice people and made us feel welcome. But what an experience. Anyone that takes that tour and doesn't go is out of their mind. Thanks again for a great trip and service, you guys are the best.

Tony


John,

This is Roland I am on the Davao social Tours presently.

This is feedback for the organization and specifically for helen and Jim. I have assessed over 1000 organizations in the world in every major industry in some 30 countries. I will say that without doubt my experience with your organization has been absolutely terrific. I am sure there is not another introduction agency in the world that has your skills and your abilities. the process that you take us through beginning to end is darn near perfect. I suggest two changes. Have two serving lines for dinner and make the name tags readable. The women could not read them at the table. the name must be printed large and bold. first name on one line and last name on second line. they must be in a gigantic font. the support I received from the staff was extraordinary. in the large group facilitation skills of Helen is beyond compare. and I am one of the dozen or so most proficient large group facilitators in the world so i know. her ability to relate to the customers and the ability to relate to the girls and the staff are remarkable. I receive unsolicited feed back from the staff on how much they trust Helen and how much they care for her I also experienced Jim. he also is an incredible true professional. he was able to relate with me ,understand me and be supportive and helpful to me in only a way that comes from a person who is truly psychologically mature and highlyskilled in this business. the bottom line is that I have not found my dream woman at this time. I am highly particular. the reason I have not dated a woman for 10 years is simply that I did not think the woman out there existed that would want to join my disciplined highly professional global trotting lifestyle that I would have access to. I am now convinced that there are a multitude of women who are connected with foreign affair that would be glad to join me in my life. the trick now is to find that special person. we came so close on this encounter. therefore I will continue my relationship with a foreign affair until my dream is realized.

Truly

Roland

John,

I was in your office in August to sign up for the Odessa tour

and at that time I told you if I don't find a wife on the tour I wanted to go to Peru. You told me that I would never make it to Peru, that I had an 80% chance of finding someone on the Odessa tour. Well, I guess you know your business pretty well, because I found the girl of my dreams. I almost screwed my opportunity up though. I had been writing one girl that I was really interested in that I thought was a little young for me, but I wrote her anyway and we really clicked in our letters. Well, when I got there to meet her and saw how young she looked had a panic attach and told her interpreter I didn't want to see her anymore, because she was too young. Then I started dating other women. Well, when I got home there was a letter waiting for me wanting to know what happened? I wrote back and told her she was too young. I am 60 and she is 39. She said, well you knew how old I was before you came to Ukraine. So we co! mmunicated back and forth for a few days and I asked her to forgive me and for one more chance. The 23rd of October I went back to meet with her again and almost blew it again! We were having a communication problem! So, I decide to call Max and he came running to the rescue. By the way I want to tell you what a good job Max does on the Odessa tour. I believe him and Anna were born for that kind of work. They are so organized and seem to love their jobs and even love working with the people. Keeping all the people happy all the time can be a very difficult job, because of dealing with so many different personalities. With Max I think I have made a friend for life! I feel he is more like family instead of someone who was a tour guide or interpreter. Your tour can't be beat! If, you can't find a wife on the tour it's not because we didn't have an opportunity or you guys didn't do your part. Thanks to Max for his help he provided after the tour I am doing the paper work to bri! ng Victoria to the USA and hope to marry her. She is absolutel! y without a doubt my dream girl. Would you please tell my friend Max I can't thank him enough?. Thanks for the perfect tour, because it couldn't have been more perfect. I highly recommend your agency.

Thanks,

Wes

Hi Anna and Svetlana,

First of all, I wanted to take some time to thank both of you

for a wonderful trip to Kiev. I had a great time during my Kiev visit form Oct 4 th -10th. Who knows I would have even found my partner (Alexander). Lets keep our fingers crossed…

Svetlana:
Since I landed in Kiev, the Cell phone delivery through the taxi driver on my arrival, the call right after I landed to welcome me, to the clear instructions of what to expect on day one, was awesome. Following that with, our personal coaching of some of the local cultures and your knowledge of most of the women in your database and assistance after understanding my personality by directing me to the right search of the women was great. I appreciate the help. Also the taxi driver picked me up back from the hotel to the airport, gave the exact change that your agency owed for the cell phone deposit and was very courteous. (1 input, the Rus hotel, actually provided me a complimentary free taxi back to the airport which I didn’t know. This is just for your information for future)

Anna:
You were unbelievably great. I don’t have enough words to express my thanks and your wonderful service during our trip. Your relentless calling of all the girls and getting me introductions and setting up appointments was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for me. The times when I was very tired and decided not to go out on dates, your persistence of making sure I went on dates is highly appreciated. The translation services you provided was the best when compared to some of the translators the women brought with themselves. Your friendliness and always with a smile, was great. More so, helping me with ideas, date plans, locations, is admirable. So, I guess, I will have to keep my options open and will after my visit to Kiev.
I hope both of your families are well and you are doing very good there.

Talk to you soon.

Andy

IRVING  & NENETTE

Peter,

I wanted to send you a short thank you letter.

I have been back for a few days, and I am still smiling over my good fortune to meet Katerina. We spent every moment together while I was there, and have talked or emailed every day since I've been back. I believe we will be together. I will send you an update in a few weeks when we decide on our next step.

Please thank Max for me as well. He is a great guy, and I am fortunate to refer to each of you as friends.

Best Regards,

Scott

Dear John & Crew of AFA,

I want to thank you for your services in helping me to meet Ramona.

We first met in 2007 and were later married in August of 2008.

The quality of service I received from AFA, both here in the US and also when in Colombia was top of the line. From the very first emails, to listening to the Monday (or was it Tuesday) conference calls where you answered questions and offered advice, using AFA for sending flowers, handling translated phone calls to Ramona, and for the GREAT service I received in Colombia when I went down there the first time.

There are a couple things I might say worked well for me, that others may want to try. First off you state in your guide lines, “don’t send money!” I think that is sound advice. But after my first trip to see Ramona, I wanted to get to know her better, and make sure this was right for BOTH of us. What I am going to suggest is only for when you are getting serious about one person.

I bought Ramona a computer and paid for the internet. Now first off, this wasn’t as expensive as you might think. A computer to handle email and Skype, (yahoo IM, any of those services) is not expensive. The internet connection cost about the same as here. But the reason I did this was so we could talk a couple hours a day and see each other via video. Skype is free. We ended up talking a couple hours in the morning and a couple hours in the evening. Using Skype and Microsoft Word, I could translate, cut and paste in the document space of Yahoo IM, and we could still see and talk live. What a great tool to get to know someone.

You would spend more than that dating here in the USA if you went to dinners, bars, or whatever you choose to do. Up front cost, $400, then $50 a month for the internet. It was well worth that to make sure we were right for each other. However, I would not suggest doing this for every woman you met… only after you have an idea you are starting to get serious.

Before we got the extra computer, Ramona would go to an internet café, which we did for several months. But they lacked the Video. That is such a plus.

The BIG side bonus! After Ramona and I came to the USA and got married, she never really got home sick!!!! Because every evening she is able to talk to her family and SEE them using Yahoo or Skype. Talk about a huge upside to the purchase! Anyway, I feel it is money well invested! Anyway, after a year and a half, and 4 trips to Colombia, we got married. What a wonderful woman! As for Colombia. It’s as safe as anywhere in the world. We are going to live here in California for a couple more years and then move to Colombia, where we purchased a Condo. The condo is being built now and due for completion at the end of 2011. If you feel I could be of any help answering question for any of your current clients, please let me know. Perhaps on one of the conference call nights or by email.

Again, I want to thank you and your staff for changing my life.

Gary & Ramona

Hello Anna-Maria,

Thank you for all your help on our tour.

I appreciate the time and effort you put into helping us to meet "Ms. Right".

I truly did not expect to meet the "woman of my dreams" on my first visit to Ukraine. I anticipated seeing the local sights and learning about Ukraine's culture and history as a tourist with the possibility of having the help of a beautiful, local woman to educate me.

In only the four afternoons and evenings that I spent with Natasha after meeting her at the Social in Poltava, she made a deep impression on me with her intelligence, personality, manners, character, class and, of course, beauty. Her 3 1/2 year old daughter, Sophia, is very well behaved and fun to play with. I enjoyed spending the too short time with both of them and I do hope that we will have a long future together. I am looking forward to finally becoming a loving husband and father.

Once again, thank you for your time and effort on our behalf.

Sincerely,

W. Scott N.

Helen:

I want to thank you for running such a professional organization,

and making it possible for a serious guy to find a wife in the beautiful Philippine Islands.

During your May 2010 Tour in Davao I was very fortunate that you allowed Maricar Plenos (Mecai) to not only lead the tour as our guide, but to make herself available, if she wanted that. After the first social she dropped me a note saying that I could contact her if I wanted! We met for lunch the second day. The rest is history! What an exceptional woman! A Scuba Dive Master, a Reservist in the Navy, a Tour Guide, a mom and wonderful daughter and sister. Educated and accomplished. This beautiful woman is simply amazing. An ideal mixture of beauty and brains. How I won her heart is still a mystery to me, but I am elated with the results.

I am returning to Davao in July to spent most of the month with her. We will be married this trip. She is not only a beautiful lady visually, but her heart and soul are also every bit as beautiful as she. Her kids and brothers are a joy, and even her mother is nice.....what a miracle! We went to the province to meet her mothers side of the family. A great experience for me, something I had not expected when I made the decision to do the May tour. We'll visit her fathers side of the family in the province in July. I am expecting the same warm reception from them. What a truly great experience to have such a memorable trip. Something that will stay with me for my entire life.

Mecai and I are both in touch with others who were on the tour, several are planning marriages as well! Others still working on the "selection" process. Regardless, what a great group of "friends" we made with the the rest of the guys and their ladies, and your wonderful staff! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The facilities were outstanding. From the Marco Polo Hotel to the social facilities at the Marco Polo. First rate!

The Tour activities were very nice in that it allowed us time as a group, and individually, to get to know each other in very friendly surroundings. Well worth the time to participate in the activities. An essential part of the process to get to know the ladies of our affections.

Thank you, Helen! I shall stay in touch with you when I move full time to Davao sometime in 2011 to settle permanently with Mecai and her family. What an adventure life holds for those who are willing to take that first step to a truly happy and memorable life.

Doug

Hello Everyone

I would like to thank each and everyone

for the kindness and concern for me while I was in your Country. (Davao, Philippines 2010) A special thank you to Maricar for all her help and concern for me, she is truly an asset to the company. It was truly the trip of a lifetime. I meet a lot of wonderful people that I will never forget. I assume that everyone knows that Charlita and I are engaged and have started the Visa process. I have also gained an entire new family and could not be happier. I will return the last of October or first of November and will be sure to visit the office to gather more Hugs.

Dear AFA,

I just wanted to thank you guys for providing a wonderful service.

Without your help I would never have had the nerve to go on a Latin Club tour. Yami and Ceci were so helpful, as well as the other translators. If it were not for them I would not have met the most amazing woman, let alone propose to her a mere 10 days later - thank God she said yes. Thank you for everything you have helped make me the happiest man alive right now.

Dear AFA,

This is just short note to thank the both of you

for all your help and consideration. The apartment was absolutely outstanding, very comfortable, and the views were stunning; especially at night time. Being the "worker bee" that she is, Janneth cleaned the apartment before we checked out and I hope the next client finds it in the pristine condition that we did. Janneth and I are living proof that the whole concept behind AFA can work for anyone if they're prepared to invest the time and emotion necessary for a happy ending. Janneth's family has accepted me as one of their own and are thrilled with our engagement. Being the traditional military officer and gentleman that I am, I asked her parent's permission to marry her. You already know their answer. Again, Peter and Vanessa, on behalf of Janneth and myself, we thank you for giving us the pleasure of finding the love of our lives through the wonderful guidance and experience of A Foreign Affair.

Sincerely,
David A. and Janneth M.

Dear AFA,

In July 2009, I took your Cartagena, Colombia tour and

I met several of the ladies there at that time. In September of 2009, Luz Angelica ("Angie")Herrera Ochoa (#106424) and I entered into an exclusive relationship and I have since then returned to Cartagena on my own to spend more time with her and to meet her family. On Monday, April 5'th, 2010, I proposed to her, in Spanish, and she said "Si" which is "Yes" in Spanish. So, thanks to you and one of your tours I met the woman who I anticipate to be my soul mate and you can mark this one down as another love connection. So thankyou, thankyou, thankyou very much : ) Moreover, I just ordered her some roses plus the photo of her receiving the roses.

With Sincere Thanks,
Phillip P.

I would like to thank AFA staff for organizing the Shenzhen tour.

I had a very good time. Your staff worked very hard to help us. I want to specially thank Amillia who was very kind and dedicated. She helped me restlessly. Her English is very good and efficient. I tried to show my appreciation by paying her. She refused it mentioning she is only doing her job. This really impressed me. Having such a nice person is a gift for any employer.

I want to also thank Helen who was very kind and dedicated. She was waiting for me in the airport for a long time because my flight was delayed but she was still smiling the whole time. I really appreciate it. She also did a good job at the social.

Best regards,
Mike

Hi Sara, things have been busy for me since I got back to the USA after the New Years Peru tour,

but I wanted to thank you for the superb job that you and your staff, Ron, etc did while we where there. It was great to see how attentive all of you were and how you really seemed to enjoy what you do and in helping others. Despite the many gentlemen on the tour and many ladies involved in the socials I felt that things where very organized and you and the staff where very helpful and always there to assist us when needed which made things both fun and easy. I was very impressed on how things went as well as the devotion you have to overseeing things and taking responsibility. I really enjoyed myself and would not hesitate to come again. So a big thank you. I was also sent a request for feed back from Mr Peter King so I hope you don't mind that I also CC 'd him as well and that I am mentioning how great a job you did.....
thanks...

I just wanted to drop you a note telling you of the great people you have in Anna and Max {Odessa}. They were there for me 24 hours a day and did everything they could to try to find the right girl for me. They made me feel at home in a place where hardly anyone spoke any English.

Thanks for everything.

My experience with the socials...

Hello Sara,

Thanks for your email. I already miss Peru and the experiences I have had there.

My experience with the socials. I think you all did a great job, the socials, the translaters, and the after dates that were set up. While it was a bit overwhelming for me, so many women and so little time, that is because of my schedule. One really needs at least a couple of weeks to get to know some of the women, in order to make intelligent decisions. But, the socials were great, the organization was great, and I appreciate the service from you and the staff; They were all very helpful. I may have to do it again in the very near future, to determince my relationship with Darly, and perhaps others. Unlike perhaps some of the other gentlemen, I really just want to be with one woman. Also, the hotel was very comfortable and convenient to the office.

Overall, a great experience, like a kid in a candy store. Thanks for all of your support, and I might see you again soon.

Please thank everyone for me,
Richard

I truly had a wonderful time and met some wonderful people on your staff, the local people that live in the Ukraine and the other gentlemen from our tour. I had a very comfortable flight to New York plane was on-time without delays. This is a main concern of mine.

I did meet a some nice ladies but there is one that stands out from the rest. I am taking my time to decide if she is the right one but I am still not sure. I will follow my heart.

You are a really nice man that made my trip that much more enjoyable. Let's stay in touch please.

I must say what a wonderful time I had.

How are you doing my friend? I hope all is well. First of all I would like to say this was my first trip to Lima Peru. I must say what a wonderful time I had. I really enjoyed myself the whole time I was there. I have to say Sara and her staff did a wonderful job. Out of all the tours I have taken with AFA, this one have to be one of the best by far. John, Sara and her staff went over and beyond to help me and the rest of the guys with whatever we needed to make our stay great.

John, just to show you how wonderful her staff is, I was working with Ron, seem like every time I think I found someone that I wanted to date, I'll put the profiles book down then, he would tell me to keep looking, for some reason I'll run across another young lady that I was interested in dating, then he would call her to set something up for the same day or the next day. I really enjoyed the bus tour around Miraflores.

What can I say about the socials, if I could put it in one word it would be INCREDIBLE! (I couldn't believe my eyes, the ladies there where the most beautiful women I have ever seen! The hotel, they're staff, the food and your translators were all first class!)This kind of service need to be notice, I'm really looking forward to my next visit.

This is why me and some of the guys that went on the first tour are making plains to return back to Lima for the New Year Tour. John, I really hope that you take the time and call Sara, and think her, and the staff for doing a great job. She deserve it! I could keep going about Lima Peru, but I'm sure you don't have the time to read all of it but, make know mistake about it, I can't wait to get back. Thanks to AFA you'll are the greatest.

Best Wishes,
Richard

I just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how impressed I was with Max and Anna in Odessa.

As Max will attest, I had a little issue with a lady I met from another service and Max stepped in and helped beyond the call of duty. He is a real asset for your organization and I am switching all my future business to AFA, primarily because of Max and Anna, but I should have taken the hint from you before going over to the Ukraine.

I also met Svitlana in Kiev and was very impressed also. I will become an AFA guy from now on. Thanks for your advice. If you ever need a reference from me, I will be happy to provide one.

Thanks again,

I wanted to send this note to really thank...

Hi all at AFA!

I wanted to send this note to really thank all of you for making my first AFA tour a wonderful experience and quite possibly a great success with respect to finding a fantastic lady in Nikolaev -- we are corresponding via email, phone and skype right now and perhaps I will go back very soon to make a formal engagement, meet the parents and get immigration paperwork started...

I especially wanted to thank Michael Harrison, our tour leader. Mike made this trip, my first, a truly rewarding one. Mike made sure everyone was taken care of, made sure flight arrangements and hotel arrangements went smoothly and was always looking out for each one of us every step of the way. He was always available to us even when it seemed like he might be swamped with requests for date arrangements, securing an interpreter or rounding us all up to make the next bus trip to the next destination. Even when some of us diverted from the tour schedule, Mike made it a point to stay in contact with each of us, not only for details to meet back for the flight back to the states, but to know how things were going with our potential love connections. Mike was truly interested in our personal lives though this experience as well. I can say that I made a few new and great friends on this trip, and Mike Harrison is certainly one of them. I would recommend AFA and Mike as a tour leader to anyone interested in exploring the world of a foreign romance!

Sincerely,
Rob L.

This was my first trip abroad and first romance tour.

"This was my first trip abroad and first romance tour. AFA staffing was terrific the entire time. We went to Kiev first then to Poltava, Ukraine. Each day was better then the last. I felt as though I had died and gone to heaven. At the second social we seven tour members were in a club with 190 beautiful friendly graceful and charming ladies. How would thus make you feel? Get on the plane and find our boys. Nice guys do finish first in Ukraine.
Sincerely, Kevin P."

I was very dissatisfied with their service.

"To whom it concern, My name is Joe Kraft. This is my first AFA trip. After using an internet dating agency I was very dissatisfied with their service.
I almost gave up on the process. I was redirected to your company as my only and last hope. Your services are everything that you said they would be. I was skeptical at first, whether I thought you could deliver. You went above and beyond my expectations. If the young lady I met does not turn out to be whom I was looking for, you can expect to see me on many more trips.

Tour staff of Svitlana, Anna-Maria and all the translators were nothing less than outstanding. They worked two endless hours and showed great effort to fulfill all of our concerns and needs. I can only hope they will be rewarded handsomely for their efforts. My only complaint is not enough time to contact all the women I met.

Congratulations on a job well done.
To all my deepest thanks.
J.Kraft"

I cannot remember whem I have had such a great time.

Hi John,
I attended the Costa Rica tour on 11/20/08 - 11/26/08. I cannot remember whem I have had such a great time. The ladies that I met at the socials were drop dead gorgeous, friendly, and easy to talk to. I admit I was a little skeptical at first, but that was quickly erased when I met Gustavo, his wife Maria, and the entire A.F.A. Staff. they were all very caring and concerned for the guests on the tour. The A.F.A. staff went above and beyond the call of duty to see that everyone had a great time and the provide the opportunity for us to meet a huge number of terrific ladies. I met a wonderful, beautiful, and intelligent women, Llunis, and I have submitted the application for the K - 1 Visa. I am very anxious to return to Costa Rica to be with my fiancee and vist the A.F.A.staff. What a great organization. I would recommend it to any and everyone.
Thank John for this great agency. My only regert is that I did'nt know about it years ago.

I just returned from my Barranquilla tour, and if I had to put it into one word INCREDIBLE!

Hola everyone,
I just returned from my Barranquilla tour, and if I had to put it into one word INCREDIBLE! Yami and the entire staff could not have been more helpful with anything we needed. I can not thank them enough! I came to Barranquilla wondering if this was really true. As I stood by the door watching the women come into the socials, I couldn't believe my eyes, they where the most beautiful women I have ever seen! The hotel, they're staff, the food and your translators were all first class! I came having my doubts and left having meet some great friends and in love with the most wonderful woman I have ever met!!
Thankyou from the bottom of my heart

Your organizing and carrying out the logistics and dynamics went great

Hey John,

Just a quick thanks to you for a tour well done. Your organizing and carrying out the logistics and dynamics went great and your help in Ukraine were very helpful and pleasant. It was quite an eye-opener for me and I am sure for the rest of the guys on the tour.
I am returning to Odessa later in January to meet up again with my new lady Angela. Hopefully it will work out all right and I'll check in with the AFA office when I get there.

Thanks again!

Take care,

I just want you to know that I had the time of my life on the group tour...

Hi John,
How are you? Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I just want you to know that I had the time of my life on the group tour. The experience was priceless! It was one of the best decisions I ever made! The pictures on the web site brought back many memories of the trip. The guys on the tour were great! I met so many interesting,intelligent and beautiful women. There is one girl in particular that I met at the first social that I am still very interested in.When I call her she is always so excited to speak to me. I had such a great time with her and it was very difficult to leave but knew I would come back soon. I attached a photo of Olga and I. I am going back to Odessa to see Olga for a few days arriving January 14th and am very excited! It was a pleasure meeting you on the tour. I learned a lot by listening to advice and tips you gave some of the guys. I will always remember that special trip!
Thank you again for everything!
Have a Wonderful New Year!!
Santo

Thanks again for all your assistance.

John, I would like to say that your company is absolutely the best company with your personal service and class that you do with everything. It has been pleasant to go twice to Odessa on the tours and I am also honored that I had the opportunity to meet you during the last tour. With out your company and service, I would not have met the greatest lady. Please feel free to use the pictures of me and Elena to promote your company. I could not be happier.
We are actually talking about 7-8 times per day and I hope we have no trouble with the Visa. It looks like they are very picky about everything; but I have been in touch with Elena about getting anything they are asking for and she is very good about getting it back to me.
I will keep you posted on everything.

They was there for anything that I might of needed. On my third day there, I met Monica. Monica and I got along great, and by the end of the week, we was talking about marriage. A big thank you for introducing us. I will write and tell you more as things progress between Monica and I.

Beyond the call of duty!

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks again for all your help. Also, as per our brief recent telephone conversation, I wanted to share with you about how helpful my good friend Max, the AFA Odessa represenative, was during my recent trip.

During my last day in Odessa I developed an eye infection. The infection got worse in the evening during a date in which Max was my translator. Max strongly suggested that after dinner he should take me to an eye doctor. So after dinner my date, Max and I headed to the clinic. After the doctor visit we spent a lot of time looking around for an late night open pharmacy. After a few days my eye was ok.

I feel Max went above and beyond the call of duty that night. He spent a lot of time helping me and I greatly appreciate that. I also consider Max not just a helper but a true friend. His mother Anna is also a wonderful person.

Thanks to AFA I had a great trip to the Ukraine and Russia.

Best wishes.

I have just recently returned from Ukraine where I participated in your individual tour..

Hello Jeff,

I have just recently returned from Ukraine where I participated in your individual tour. I must say that my overall experience was good, although I was disappointed a few times with the quality of the woman whom I was introduced to. However, I understand that people are people, and there will be good and bad ones in any place. What I would really like to write about, is my absolute satisfaction with the Odessa office and the individuals who work there tirelessly day in and day out. Both Max and Anna were absolutely incredible people to meet and work with during my time there. I was completely blown away by their devotion to their job, the long hours they worked, and how many countless times they went out of their way to ensure not only that I was safe, but that I was comfortable and prepared for all the meetings and introductions that I requested throughout my trip. They were ready to help with and solve any problem that I had. Both were waiting for me at the airport at 1 AM in the morning to introduce themselves, explain some preliminary details to me, and bring me to my hotel to ensure that I would have a place to stay that night. I have never had such care in my adult life. I cannot even count how many instances where they checked in with me(even late at night) to make sure that my date was going well, and nothing bad had happened to me while I was out in the city alone with a lady. Their interpretation service that they provided me was outstanding, and more than I could have asked for to make both myself and the lady feel comfortable speaking with each other. I simply cannot write enough about their professional attitudes and service that they provided to me while I was in Ukraine. Thanks to them, I am considering another trip to Ukraine using this agency so that I may spend more time with some women whom I did enjoy meeting.

Thanks and have a great day,
Ian M.

Going the Extra Mile

Dear AFA,

I just wanted to share with you about my last day in Odessa.

I developed an eye problem. During my evening date my eye got worse and my good friend Max, who was my translator that evening, felt I should see a doctor. So after dinner, Max, my date and I headed to an eye doctor. Then Max took us to a pharmacy to get medication for my eye infection. It took time, it was a lot of running around, but Max did it gladly. He was my guardian angel.

Max is a hard working guy. He works 5 days a week but usually works 7 days a week. I think he is a great guy and a very good friend. His mom Anna is wonderful too.

Best wishes.
Chris

I have a lot of good thoughts for AFA and the people in the St. Petersburg and Volgograd and Odessa offices.

Hello Tour Leader!

I am sorry but I had 2 old fashioned kodak cameras - and - would you believe - BOTH of them were defective junk. I got no pictures at all - except those in my head and my heart.

My plans for the moment are to return to the Odessa region this summer(July) - maybe August as well...we will see....this trip actually might change my life...at least it gave me something to think about and I'm going to take at least one more chance at trying to find that special lady.

I have a lot of good thoughts for AFA and the people in the St. Petersburg and Volgograd and Odessa offices. AFA gave me the opportunity to see and experience some things I would never have dared to imagine. I can't wait until I can return to Ukraine his summer!

Wishing you the best,
Ernest I.

The AFA tour to Costa Rica was my first through this agency

The AFA tour to Costa Rica was my first through this agency and from the first day to the last, the trip was filled with opportunities to meet several wonderful and beautiful women. The tour was very well organized and the AFA staff was courteous and available around the clock for assistance. I would recommend this tour for anyone looking for a sincere, traditional Latin American woman. I would certainly make this trip again.

Thanks again to Gustavo and his staff,
Greg

I really like the idea of there being the same number of tables as guy.

The social was great. Definitely the best of all I have been to. I really like the idea of there being the same number of tables as guy. Each guy takes a table and about every 15 minutes Sandra rings a bell and the guys move to another table. Helps all the girls get a little time with all the guys and helps guys like me who struggles approaching women even in this type of situation get around to all the girls. The girls far exceed the profiles. These woman are definitly more attractive in person. . This may work out afterall. Catch you later.

I want to thank you for all of the help and advise that you have given to me on this great journey.

Peter,

I want to thank you for all of the help and advise that you have given to me on this great journey. You have truly been more than just someone that sold me a trip/vacation, you have truly shown that you care about what you do. I wish that more people in the world were like you and that they also truly cared about what they do for a living, as you do. You have been more than a salesman, you have been a friend and you have always told me the facts about everything, some of it was good and some of it was bad. The main point being that you told me the TRUTH!!! Again, thank you for all of your help.

Thanks in advance,

I’ve been waiting a long time to write you and tell how happy I’m for taking a chance with your company AFA.

Hello Ken;

I’ve been waiting a long time to write you and tell how happy I’m for taking a chance with your company AFA.

I recall my first trip to Cartagena; I took Avianica Flight from Miami to Cartagena on November, 8 2005. I was really nervous because this was my first time traveling to South America; we Americans know all about the horror stories surrounding Colombia. So as I was sitting on the plane trying to fathom how my excursion would play-out; it was this guy about four rows back on the right-side of the plane who just wouldn’t shut-up! He talked all the way from Miami to Cartagena. Once we arriving and disembarked the plane; I was finally introduce to you and the other lucky- souls in the group. The guy who wouldn’t stop talking during the flight; his name was Rick. Him and I became friends on the tour. He met his (Yesinia) soul-mate on tour. Rick and Yesenia were married on a Fiancée –Visas and now living in Colorado. “That-a- boy, way to go Rick”!

For me; it took longer to meet my soul-mate, because I like to measure the water before entering. I remember my first encounter with the AFA Web Page. While employed as a Property Specialist in Iraq; I entered one of my customer offices to perform an audit. I notice photos of beautiful Latino Women on his desktop computer and inquired about the site. He told me the name was, Loveme.com After finishing the audit in-which he receive all high-marks, (Me being excited); I return to my office and began to bower the web. I logged-on to loveme.com and immediately went to Latin Women section. My eyes were lit-up like a child on Christmas morning after seeing all his wishes up the tree. I couldn’t believe my eyes! As a child, watching Poncho Villa and other Western Movies filmed in Mexico; I’ve always dream of traveling to Central or South American and meeting my Latin American dark-eye- beauty. Well, I had just found an avenue to make my dream a reality. Viewing tour packages; I decided to book my first tour to Cartagena. After meeting your Staff, Kayla, Viviana, Mary Cruz and other supporting cast; I knew my stay would be enjoyable because of the hospitality rendered. I must say, my experience with the socials was over-whelming in term of excitement. I was like a “Chicken in a fox-pen”; all the ladies were foxes and I was too chicken to move. During my ten-day tour, I narrowed my choice down to one lady. We started on our quest for a long-lasting relationship which lasted for a year. However, through ours correspondence and me working in Iraq; the relationship went sour. Subsequently being disappointed; I returned to my old-trusted-friend, “loveme.com”. I would always browse this site when feeling lonely and needed an adrenaline-rush. As I browse through profiles; there she was, “A Rose among flowers”! I told my friend who would always share my favorite time of the day surfing loveme.com site for beautiful ladies, “She is the one!” He advised me to make sure and go for her. I decided to employ a new strategic; “Take it slow and easy”. I immediately started planning my next vacation to Cartagena.

On my second trip to the “land-of-honnies” (Cartagena where all the most beautiful ladies are congregated) proves to be a winner. Once again working with you invaluable-staff; they introduce me to my Colombia Queen. We went on our first date with assistance from another one of your “Star-member” (Nayibe) acting as translator; the evening was lovely and magical. We continued our wonderful relationship and three consecutive trips later; I proposed to (Adriana) my Colombian Queen on New Years 2008. We are now planning our wedding date which should be late 2008 or early 2009.

I must give all of my gratitude to you and your staff for turning my dream of finding “True love” into realism. My advice to men who hopes too find or meet your special soul-mate is; take it slow and easy. You’re going to be excited after seeing so many beautiful ladies, but you have to bring yourself off of cloud-nine. I know you’ll have heard the clique,” Slow your role”, Well, this is true, because you can never put a rush on love. Take time to learn her culture and establish good communication. This will goes a long way in building a strong friendship first and then a lasting- loving relationship. You will be elated!

“Happy-as-Heaven in Iraq”
Elvis

It was the most fantastic experience of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear John
You remember me?? You told me to tell you what I thought of the trip when I returned . So here it is... It was the most fantastic experience of my life!!!!!!!!!!!!. Helen was the most gracious lady and took care of every little problem I had !!.I wanted to take "her home" . Her "crew" especially Jay . were so helpful with me and my wheelchair and walker.. They were the best ,so attentive and helpful, all you had to do was turn around and someone was there to help you .. About the ladies.. My God ,they were the most beautiful bunch of gals I have ever seen in one place .. These girls were not "bimbos" they were nice respectful elegant ladies. But they did know how to have a good time and make us all feel welcome.. The only problem I saw with the whole thing was there were like 80 girls at the first social party,and I think 9 guys .. There was not enough male to spread around so the gals were very competitive .. I know a lot of folks would say . "how could that be a problem"? I was just thinking of the girls position . They went out ,probably spent a weeks pay for a party dress and getting hair all done up ,and there was no way we could talk to all to all of them . There were a lot that were too young for me, but I tried not to hurt their feelings . I wanted them to know they were beautiful and I appreciated them coming.. I found my new wife to be. She was one that I had been emailing for a few months. But seeing her in person sealed the deal for me. She in fact ,got up and sang a song to me at one of the socials. they were nice enough to allow her to sing and she brought the house down,,They said that they would get her a dvd of her performance, that was so thoughtful. soon as we marry,.. I am taking her to "Nashville" ,She was great.. You were right, about my worries of using the wheelchair due to my recent surgery, It was no problem. the girls looked right past that and looked at the man.. I never felt out of place These ladies really were the best and you should be proud of your organization , The hotel was as nice as any hotel in Vegas that I have stayed at ,and thats the truth.. They charged us for every little thing ,except maybe for the "air" we breathed , but that is their culture and we adapted . the service and food was impeccable. a real first class place to stay .. If I could. I would go back tomorrow John. Thank you for a great experience and the little promo that they asked me to do on tape, was sincere and true and I meant every word of this.
Sincerely
William K

"I wanted to presonally thank you all and the Cartagena Staff"

Hello,

I wanted to presonally thank you all and the Cartagena Staff for the wonderful Cartagena tour you put on in October. I really enjoyed my time there in Cartagena, it was very interesting to see the life in Colombia and it was especially special to meet the beauty ladies of Cartagena. I throughly enjoyed the activities that where planned for the Cartagena tour and Cartagena Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definite recommend the tour to any man seeking to beauty ladies who our marriage minded. I meet a really nice lady there in Cartagena and I look forward to going back to Cartagena soon.

Thank you,
Nick

"By the way, the women were absolutely gorgeous in Ukraine."

Hey Peter,

I had an awesome time. At first, it was a little awkward for me because it has always been fairly easily for me to meet and talk with women. On the tour, I had to overcome the language barrier. Everything turned out great. I would like to do a tour to Kharkov, Kiev and Sumy. From the look of it, there is not a tour until next year. Anyway, if I am ever in Arizona, I will give you a call. Take care, and maybe, I will see you on a 2008 tour. Take care and stay in touch.

Rick M.

P.S. By the way, the women were absolutely gorgeous in Ukraine. American women cannot touch them; an average Ukrainian woman would be a 10 in the states.

"The tour within the beautiful cities of Odessa and Nicholea has made this vacation unforgettable and one of the most enjoyable time of my life."

Hamilton, Ontario
Canada

Dear John:

I am writing to express my sincere appreciation to Peter King and his team who organized the Odessa tour of Sept 19, 2007.

This was my first tour and very unlikely the last one. I am planning to come back to experience the same great time and fun holiday. The tour within the beautiful cities of Odessa and Nicholea has made this vacation unforgettable and one of the most enjoyable time of my life.

From the first day I sent my application to my departure from Odessa, support and assistance from Peter's team was provided quickly to resolve problemsand assist me with my endeavours. I must also mention the wonderful work from the sub-team of interpreters that made themselves available to eliminate communication barriers and assist with administrative details. I thank them dearly and will never forget their help.

It was also very nice to renew friendship with American friends and will definitely keep in touch.

As usual there is always room for improvement in such a complex and detailed tour. If I may, I would suggest that the health club training room in the Odessa Hotel be included to members of the tour so that one can enjoy the health benefits of such a good club.

I would appreciate if you could share this letter with the appropriate personnel so that they can receive credit for their superior work.

Again, thank you for the opportunity to enjoy a great experience. I look forward to more tours with AFA.

Yours very truly,
Maurice G.

"I left a big piece of my heart there"

Paul Photo Hey Peter, Hope you made it back alight! I gotta tell ya, man ... No one here understands the withdrawals I'm going through .... the place (and, of course) the women are like a drug. You know. I feel now like you are a brother of sorts, kind of like Band of Brothers, just on the other end of the spectrum. Bob Fisher was right, he said and I quote, : "As soon as you touchdown in Vienna, you'll say; oh, what the @#%&!" And that phrase was the first thought in my head when I did.

Thanks to you and the Odessa AFA staff, I could not have created a better vacation even with my twisted mind :) Mere words cannot describe the affection I have aquired for the city, the country and the people themselves. I really feel as if (this might sound gay, but it's true) I left a big piece of my heart there. I dream of nothing more than going back! Frequent memories of the dinners, the commradary, of course, the romance all invade my day to day thoughts. In fact, the first thing I did on Monday was order Rosetta Stone for Russian. True, there is no hope for me, I should just move there ......

Really, I want to thank most of all, you. Doing something like this from the start is a little out of my character but you made me and I think all of us feel welcome, relaxed and helped us all have a good time. I especially liked your finesse when we sat wtih Marina, telling her about the bus ride and how I couldn't wait to get back to Odessa to see her. Nice Man! I owe ya. Also, thanks for inviting us to Max's b-day party. Another fun night, never to be forgotten. I guess that is what this letter is .... I could ramble for hours about the fun and laughs I had , but really, this letter is for you.

Thanks Peter. You deserve all the best!

I toast you and AFA for providing such an invaluable invitation to fun and love .... Salute!

On a personal note: Like I've said many times; I went for the party, but got something way better than I could have ever expected! Marina and I speak at least once a day, we write each other via e-mail as much and I'm planning a trip back in January. This girl is absolutely incredible. I have my travel clock still set at Odessa time, around 8 or 9 her time, I'll wonder how she is and then hear the phone ring. I walk around all day thinking of her, her smile and how much, unlike her American counterparts, I have complete trust and faith in her. Whenever I call, I can just hear the excitment in her voice and really that's all I ever need! Much of this I owe to you and AFA. There is some of me in there, of course, but still ... I'd like to buy you guys a round sometime. Thanks again ... let me know if you get this and keep in touch


Take care, Paul

"It was definitely one of the best experiences of my life."

Hello John,

This is the Email you asked per our conversation. I am Melvin Richardson. I took the Odessa, Nikolaev, and Kherson tour and as I said, it was definitely one of the best experiences of my life.
I cannot begin to tell you how professional, helpful, and courteous your staff is. It starts with the honest and caring efforts on their behalf long before the trip to do everything to help make the trip a success. Their help extends far beyond pay. Your staff put their love and hearts in their work. They are always there or get back with you for assistance. The staff gives you all the information on the approach to be successful on your tour. You have all the support areas set up to help the tour be safe and successful for the customers.
I live in Phoenix. The Phoenix office has been extremely helpful and I know some of the employees there. I have gotten information from Steve, Peter, and The ladies in the office have helped me with my package or email and other information.
Our tour! Guide, Lena was always there to help from New York and through the tour and believe me it was helpful to us, but she was busy all the time. There is so much we need help with in these new places when we get there to be successful. That is what keeps the tour guide and local offices so busy.
The support there is necessary and I must say that in taking advantage of your most excellent designed business plan, I was successful and very happy. I would rate your business perspective for the customer as the best in the world. I am 56, been around, and I can justify what I am saying. I advise any man considering going international dating to any of your service areas to take your tour, ask questions, and follow the advice given. By the way, the group of guys on my tour were great. They were like friends and family. We did our best to look out for each other. It was a good feeling to be associated with this group.
The ladies attending the socials were a fantastic group also. They! were friendly, courteous, helpful, and polite. Everyone talked! and socialized with the utmost of kindness. The hotels, meals, taxi discounts, translator help and discounts, insurance, local office support, tour schedule, and the entire agenda is amazing.
I want to thank all of you at A Foreign Affair. You have provided me with everything to be successful in my search for my future bride. Now, I only have to make a wise decision as to choose the right one for me.
You have my permission to use me as a reference any time you wish.

Return To Testimonial Menu "I cannot emphasize the sweetness, and the thoughtfulness of these women."

Dear John,

The AFA tour was very good. I met a number of wonderful women who were all highly educated, sincere and very beautiful. At the risk of sounding prejudiced, Russian women are clearly the most beautiful women in the world. The socials were big fun and just delightful with the multitudes of women that were very communicative and desirous of meeting all the men on the trip. It was very clear that we did not have fight over meeting women nor did we have to be super handsome or have a perfect weight, the women were interested in a meaningful relationship with sincere men leading to marriage. In fact, it was really impossible to meet all the women at the socials: there were really too many women and the experience was overwhelming. The concept of meeting women who were just joining the AFA search is an excellent idea. Two of the many women that attracted my attention were new ladies in the program. Each of the women made it clear that they were looking for a relationship based upon equality and honesty. Family was the second most important issue, and one absolutely gorgeous woman was very concerned about my parenting skills because she had a thirteen year old child, and wanted a real family relationship with meaningful communication between man and woman. Of course, I am still talking with this woman. And, here is the obvious problem, you are going to meet a number of wonderful women who are going to give you a real opportunity for a future with them. Although this has complicated my life, I am working on these challenges. It is very exciting. Throughout the trip, Valentina and the interpreters in the AFA office were very helpful with any need, and never hesitated to call women for introductory meetings. In addition, the interpreter Irina helped me secure tickets to the world class ballet-opera house, the Marinsky Theater. which is a great date and a wonderful lifetime experience.I made three trips to the Marinsky Theater. Overall, and it is said constantly, the only way that you really make inroads with these fabulous women is to make the trip to saint petersburg in order to demonstrate that you are committed to the process of connecting with one of these delightful women. You can talk and talk and write letters but there is absolutely no substitute for the trip. Although I had talked and written to a number of women, the possibilities for myself opened up with new women that were attending for the first time the AFA socials. And, you truly have no idea who you will meet unless you actually do the AFA socials in saint petersburg. Obviously, I had heard the same stories about doing the trip, and it is really true. You literally accomplish very little unless you make the trip, and you might even want to do a second trip because you will have learned about the valuable and helpful AFA staff. Sometimes, two weeks is inadequate on this significant journey. And, you can always go early and stay longer, and AFA will help you. I came early and found this very helpful with AFA meeting me at the airport to transporting me to my apartment, and then on to the hotel. The hotel is a great place to operate from because the AFA staff is right there to assist you, and your time is precious. This early arrival was great not only on account of the time change but also gave me the opportunity to meet more women. In conclusion, this is very exciting time for any man who really wants to change his life but you cannot make the change without making the trip: saint petersburg women are sweet, educated and very real!!!!! I cannot emphasize the sweetness, and the thoughtfulness of these women.

"Your company is exceptional in doing business"

Hello,
I returned from the July 18 Odessa, Nikolaev, and Kherson tour today. I want to take a few minutes to thank you. I know we paid for the tour, but I still want to thank you.
The reason is because you ( Peter, Steve, Elena Redburn, Max, Nodia, Helen, and others ) did not look at the clients as typical company employees do, but took time and interest to see that all our interests from questions and problems, to advise were taken care of. We were never rushed or put off as most companies do.
Your company is exceptional in doing business. It functions as a company should, and I would rate your company as one of the Top Five in the World. Please use me as a reference or in any way that I may help represent the endless efforts that you and your employees commit your selves to for the success of your customers.
By the way, I enjoyed the trip as the best time of my life, and it was due to your efforts and the screening and selection of all your male and female clients. The Hotels had! a commendable staff. Don't forget to compliment the bus driver. He was courteous, professional, safe, and helpful, just as all others in your staff.
We got to depend on you so much until we really missed your staff at Vienna. It was convenient with the hotel just across the street from the airport. The Ladies were even helpful to us in resolving some travel issues with luggage and directions. The ladies were most courteous and down to earth. Personalities were of the utmost in the world. Please do consider adding one day to make two days at Kherson, even adding enough to cover the cost of the bus and driver is well worth it. Many of us wanted another day, some payed more to stay than it would have costed added in the trip, and there would be more success because of the number of serious and committed women in Kherson.
Please feel free to contact me for any reference that you may want.

"WOW! ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE PLACE!"


Just a few words to say hello...
I am still in Medellin, this is my last day here........ I have two things to describe this experience...

WOW! ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE PLACE!

You really cannot overstate how wonderful this city is... The ladies are every bit as beautiful, sincere, warm, and sweet as you´ve told us, and MORE! Originally, I had thought I would just try this tour for a vacation and to check out if everything I heard about AFA and Medellin was true, I was amazed, actually, as how AFA understated how wonderful this this beautiful city is... There many intetesting stories of Success in terms of finding someone special that came from this tour, but, MAN!, the real story is how wonderful this town is and the people here in Medellin... this is true, not only from the woman we met from AFA, but all the women here are some of the sweetest, warmest of any place in the world... this has got to be the worlds ¨Best Kept Secret¨... I could go on for days about all the cool things we experienced on this trip, but, for one, I am certain you will recieve many other letters from the other men, and second, I just dont think I could adequetly express my real feelings about this city... For me, the overwieght, inconfident, pessimist, guy.... I met one of the sweetest ladies and she is beautiful... her name is Diana... I´ve attached her photo.. We really have been tied at the hip since the first day... The funny thing is, at the social, I never made it to her table... it just ran late and there were soo many wonderful interesting woman to talk to.. I had already met a pretty cool girl, but she had to leave early, however, as I was leaving the social, everyone was walking out of the resturaunt where the social was held and discussing where we were all going to go next for dancing... this is when Diana aproached and, jokingly, gave me a hard time about not coming over to her table... We ended up at the disco together, and danced the entire time, then, we went out after that for some conversation and have been tied at the hip since then.. Some of the others, did great too... One of the coolest stories is about the Tour Client who met a woman from the hotel... I must tell you, she is beautiful, and really a neat lady, they hit it off pretty well.. I am not sure how that well progress, She is soo typical of the women here all over this city... one of the funny things about that story was, that I ended up being the translator for them at one of thier dates... I can not forget to mention how wonderful the staff at Medellin is... Sandra, Mui Especial, she is the hardest worker, and absolutely sweet, wonderful and took care of everything including taking me on a personal shopping trip to the mall to buy gifts for Diana... But there where many more people on the staff here... Milena, Adrianna, Rownal, as well as the interpretors Rowan, and Diana, and the others.. man, this has got to be the best group, that AFA has anyplace... the service was just without a doubt, better than anyone can imagine... everywhere we went... AFA, the Hotels, the resturaunts, we found 8 Star service...

Thanks, John, Bud, Steve, Peter, Sandra, and everyone for the great experience... If there is anything I can do to help other guys needing encouragement or whatever, please let me know... because regardless of how this relationship ends up, I know that AFA has thier act together and I would love to encourage anyone needind the experience of a lifetime, to come here.. it is the neatest place...

"AFA and Nizhniy (Novgorod) are a good choice"
AFA Nizhniy Novgorod Tour
After some time of using a tour company that will remain nameless I decided to give AFA (A Foreign Affair) a try. I am glad I did, some people will argue that this or that agency is better or worse to use. But after using the top two in America I can say AFA is much better. Not only because I found my true love on this tour, but because of the following things.
1.) Socials - The structure of the socials are much better then the competition. The quality of the ladies attending the AFA socials are much better and I enjoyed them completely.
2.) Ladies - I would say that if you are considering a tour, you MUST consider Nizhniy Novgorod. I have been to Odessa, St. Petersburg and Nikolaev. I will admit that the ladies in Odessa/Nikolaev are extremely beautiful. But as a complete package of looks, brains and traditional values. Nizhniy is just so much better then Odessa/Nikolaev. If I had a free trip anywhere today, I would choose Nizhniy over the others hands down. You really have to go there and see what I mean.
3.) Tour organization - In every tour there will be hiccups. It is a part of dealing with the former soviet union. But of the agencies I have used, AFA seems to handle them the best. I cut my trip a few days short to visit a girl back in Moscow and in only a few minutes. I had a hotel and plane ticket for the trip. Some issues I know were caused by the late train ride back to Moscow and the Hotel scene in Nizhniy is alittle outdated, but what do you expect from a city that has been closed to foreign people for as long as Nizhniy.
4.) General Comments - I think with what I have said above you should understand why I think AFA and Nizhniy are a good choice. I can only say that if you go to Nizhniy be prepared to extend your stay or buy a chin guard because most of the socials there your jaw will be on the ground.

"Words cannot express my total feelings about this experience."


Allright, here's my story:

My name is Dan. I live in San Diego, California. I grew up on a small farm in southwestern Washington State, just south of Seattle, in a town called Kelso, Washington. My father worked in a Weyerhaeuser wood mill there for forty years, supporting his wife and five children. I am the fourth child. My parents have been married for over 57 years. This is the kind of love that I have been seeking. I was taught responsibility at a very young age, taking care of the cattle, pigs and the chickens when I was just 8 years old. I have always known that God had a plan for my life. What I did not know, was that he would begin my plan in the Russian Federation. Test me on this!

I spent 12 years in the United States Navy. My duty stations were in San Diego; 32nd Street Naval Station, Miramar Naval Air Station and North Island Naval Air Station. During that time I was privileged to see many different countries on three westpac cruises. Among some of the countries were: Japan, Singapore, Korea, Philippines, Thailand, Pakistan, United Arab Imirates, Australia and Africa. I have met many, many women in these countries. I am a very simple man and I have known many women personally. But my recent trip to Russia and the Ukraine totally opened my eyes up to the true hearts of women in our world.

I can tell you, without a doubt, that Russia and the Ukraine hold the most sincere, most beautiful and most gentle hearted women that I have ever had the pleasure to meet in my entire life! No kidding! I was totally blown away by their sincerity and true honesty. If you haven't been there, do not hesitate to go. I too was very reluctant to make the decision. It took me years to make my mind up because I was scared of the unknown. But now, after I have finally made the decision to go, I discovered something there that not very many men know. These women are what we, American men, only hope for in a wife. If you want to know what I'm talking about, you can call me personally in San Diego, you can get my number from AFA. I would advise you to contact John or Ron at "A Foriegn Affair" (www.loveme.com) That is all I have to say about it. Words cannot express my total feelings about this experience. I will marry a Russian woman! And I will never look at an American woman in the same way that I have in the past. There is no comparison!!!!!

"It was a very good trip!"


Dear John,

I would like to announce the recent engagement of myself, with Ludmila of Nizhniy Novgorod . We were engaged on February 7 2005. So we would like the profile removed from the available data base. It was a very good trip! I was happy to have had the opportunity to meet her and now we have started the fiancee process and I will be going back to Nizhniy in 3 weeks.
Take care,

"How To Waste a $3 Grand Trip to Russia to Meet the Lady of Your Dreams"


After many hours of internet access during a couple years and viewing thousands of single Russian and Ukrainian lady's profiles, I finally found the lady of my dreams - so I thought. We emailed occasionally and talked mostly by phone for over six months before I flew to Saint Petersburg, Russia for a 10 day trip to meet her in person during high season. A $3,000 dollar 10 day trip to Russia to meet the lady of my dreams ended instantly in disaster as soon as we met. I got off the plane where she was kind enough to meet me at the airport. When we met, I went to give her a hug and a kiss on the cheek she cringed and tightened up all over. I knew instantly it was over and we would never be a match. I would have gotten back on the plane if I could have. It took her a couple days to realize it. We did become friends if that's any consolation.

The point is I made the biggest mistake you can make by not taking a Romance Tour so I would have other ladies to meet while I was there or at least go at the same time as a tour so I could meet other ladies just in case it did not work out with the lady - and it usually doesn't. You really don't know until you actually meet in person, no matter how long you two have been writing or calling each other.

Bottom Line: Always take a Romance Tour with a credible company even though you will go to meet your special lady or if you go by yourself, ALWAYS go at the same time as a Romance Tour. If it does not work out with your lady you can easily pay a fee to attend the Romance Tour so your whole trip is not a complete waste like mine was.

I did manage to arrange a couple introductory dates through local agencies but it is nothing like just showing up for the Tour and being sociable to meet many selected, high quality ladies right in one spot who want to meet and talk with you.

I don't think anyone can beat an experience like that. Just watch some tour videos for yourself and you will see what I mean. I'll never make that mistake again. Don't learn the hard way like me unless you have the time and $3 grand to burn.

"I would have never believed it unless I saw it with my own eyes!"
Dear Ken,

I wanted to send a note of thanks for the hospitality extended to me while on your November tour to Cartagena, Colombia.

I was very impressed with the professionalism and kindness of you and your staff. They catered to my every need and I never once felt as if I were a stranger. Prior to going I was concerned with the language barrier as I do not speak any Spanish. With the help of my incredible translator, Julie, as well as your office staff, Kayla, Grace, and Arnold, I never experienced one single problem communicating with my dates.

I was also presently surprised as to how well we Americans were welcomed by all of the locals. Cartagena is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited and I look forward to visiting there again in the near future.

The girls I met were absolutely incredible. It is true what they say about Latin woman: they are beautiful, passionate, affectionate, and they love American men.

For the guys wondering whether they should go on a tour with your company I can only say to them that if they decide to go it will change their life. As you know, our group included men from many different backgrounds and from young to old. On the last day every single person did not want to leave. As a matter of fact, some even changed their flights and stayed longer!!

I can sum my experience up by simply saying I would have never believed it unless I saw it with my own eyes! My sincere thanks to all of you for a memorable experience!

Warm Regards,

Nick G. M.

"What a relief to find someone so helpful!"
Sirs, Just back from a business trip to Costa Rica and wanted to drop you a line to praise your man in San Jose, Gustavo, a.k.a. "Gus." What a good guy!! Myself and a friend just walked into your office there and he took care of us perfectly. He's very personable, speaks good english, is professional, and was very attentive to our needs. I met two very beautiful women, both of whom were very nice, and I must say I was impressed with the quality of the women I met. One was the most beautiful woman I ever went out with (and sweet) and the other was the nicest sweetest person it has ever been my pleasure to spend some time with. Honestly!! Because the second girl spoke virtually no english, and I no spanish, I had to have Gus go with us to lunch to translate for us and found him to be a perfect gentleman. I feel honestly I have made a friend of him as well. With his help, I got to know Maria and start what I know will be a longstanding friendship. He was the perfect translator and put us both at ease in a matter of minutes so that before long we were laughing with each other and enjoying ourselves. What a relief to find someone so helpful!
Anyway, just wanted you to know you have a satisfied customer who was greatly impressed with your total "package." Especially Gustavo. Thanks for the chance to meet two of the nicest, prettiest, sweetest girls in the whole world, and be assured I'll be in touch in the future.

"I wouldn't even consider going with anyone else!"
I took my first AFA Romance Tour trip this past August. I said first because I definitely plan on going on another trip soon. I must compliment you on our excellent staff in St. Petersburg. Tatiana, Michael and all the rest were very professional and very helpful. Any employer would be proud to have such employees. I must also compliment you on one of your interpreters, Olga G. Olga translated for me on 5 different occasions and I couldn't have asked for a better person. She was always on time and you could see that she knew English very very well. After travelling to Russia with AFA, I wouldn't even consider going with anyone else!
Thanks again,

"Seize the opportunity for a lifetime of unconditional love!"
Dear AFA

I have wanted to write this letter for sometime now, but on this one year anniversary of taking your Cartagena Romance Tour I am now very happily married to a woman that I had met personally for the first time on this adventurous trip.

Although Disney and I had met online from your website on March 3rd of last year, we decided that our daily e-mails necessitated a personal meeting. The romantic city of Cartagena and your services provided the proper setting for us to develop a more personal relationship. By the fourth day of the tour we were getting along so well that we decided to separate from the tour and fly to her beautiful city of Medellin which is nestled in a valley surrounded 360 degrees by majestic mountains. Meeting her family and friends was an unforgetable experience that I will always cherish!

Including your tour, I spent five weeks in Colombia last year with the woman of my dreams. I have had many memorable moments with the incredibly helpful and loving people in many of the cities and resort villages of Colombia.

My relationship with Disney culminated in a commitment of marriage on March 3, 2004 and we continue to live our dream everyday!

Although my use of your tour was unconventional in the aspect that I had only desired to meet one woman instead of the multitude that you provide.......it was worth every cent! For gentlemen viewing your website for the first time and possibly they are unsure of the type of women this country has to offer, Colombian women are very honest, attractive, loving, appreciative and incredibly sexy! The women by far are this country's greatest asset. Seize the opportunity for a lifetime of unconditional love!

Once again, thanks for your invaluable services of helping me locate the woman of my dreams!

Sincerely,

Louis

"...The city and it’s people are awesome..."
To all at AFA,
I just returned from my trip to Saint Petersburg. I could not join a tour due to my teaching schedule but needed to go to meet my fiancée, Tatiana. The folks in the Phoenix helped me get my visa and were very helpful with other information. The staff at the Saint Petersburg office, especially Lena and Michael, were extremely helpful. They help with Tatiana’s fiancée visa paperwork and with getting my visa registered even though I was not on tour and was not staying at the hotel there.
I met Tatiana through your web-site and we have corresponded since December of 2003. Tanya and I have emailed each other on a daily basis since May and it was almost anticlimactic when I proposed to her while I was there and she accepted. She will be joining me as soon as her visa is approved.
I want to thank you all for all the help you have given me and, most of all, for allowing me to find Tanya. She is an exceptional woman in every way. Personally, I think that Russian women are the cream-of-the-crop and no man need look anywhere else for a life-long mate. Also, if you can make only one trip in your lifetime, make it to Saint Petersburg. The city and it’s people are awesome.
Thanks again,
Steve

Since my search is over, I wish to discontinue my platinum membership.
I will be visiting Katerina for a week or two over the Christmas holidays, then we will be married next summer, after she finishes her studies in Dnepropetrovsk.
Once again, thank you for a job well done!

"...Its almost unbelievable but true how many beautiful sexy women their are here..."
(Below is a testimonial, or testimonials, written by one of our former tour clients during his plane ride home. He joined us for a 3 city tour and had the opportunity to meet literally hundreds of these beautiful women in both Russia and the Ukraine. Picture yourself on the plane ride home after such an unforgettable experience; who knows, you may be thinking some of these very same thoughts...) Hi John

Thanks for the wonderful trip. I have some hard decisions ahead of me with three fine women to somehow choose from, if they choose me of course. I never forget that part of it ha ha. Here are some testimonials for you to use if you like. This entire process is something I strongly believe in with the way the world currently is. I believe their is more then just a element of truth in what I say.

This is an opprutunity for men to find a very nice wife that is due to the unique state of the world, we now have a very different situation and opprutunity different from anything that has ever happened before in human history. The different dynamics of internet, email, long distance calling, 70 years of communism and time warp, the prosperity and giving nature of Western men, the beauty, grace, warmth, family values, intelligence and education of Eastern women. Its only natural for Western men and Eastern women to find each other, the best husbands and best wives in the world coming together, it is the newest form of natural selection in our rapidly changing world.

The majority of the best husbands ever to be found in human history are in the Western World today. The rest of the world knows it, Eastern women certainly know it. Western women also know it, otherwise they would be seeking husbands from other parts of the world. Men now have the opporutunity to vote with their feet.

After the trip, going back to your home country will be depressing after being in a country which looks like a convention of super models.

I have been to Club med 2 times and nothing comes close to a AFA tour for having the best time of my life and it will probably change my life.

This is the only way to see a country, with the best tour guides you could ever imagine. These women literally took me by the hand to show me their great city with pride. I got to see life in the Ukraine behind the tourist attractions. Things most people do not get to see I got to experience first hand.

These women exude warmth, most are genuine but reserved. The best thing about them is they like nice guys.

Most of these women sincerely want a man whom will love them and love his family. This lucky man will most likely recieve much more then he gives.

The type of wife these women become is directly related to the type of husband the man is.

I wish all these women could find a nice husband. Unfortunately, I can only take one back with me and it will not be an easy decision.

These women attach a great deal of importance to a man's character, and if he is someone who does what he says he will.

I consistently discovered a 15 to 20 year age difference does not matter with many of these women if the man is healthy and young for his age. This was a pleasant surprize because what man would not want a younger wife. In Ukraine a 40 year old man looks about 55.

Going to the Ukraine is like getting on a space ship and going to a planet of beautiful sexy Women who have the personalities of friendly old grandmothers ha ha or Babasukas.

Its almost unbelievable but true how many beautiful sexy women their are here. But a even greater surprise is their inner beauty. A man must totally deprogram himself with respect to the personalities of attractive Western women. You must clean the slate, forget about everything you think you knew about women and be prepared to be amazed.

"...I have not enjoyed my self on a Holiday so much in a long time..."

All our family and friends where there it was a really great day.
I Just want to thank you guys over there in the US, for showing me such a great time, in both Moscow and St Petersburg. Meeting all those beautiful women, talking to the other guys from various parts of the world, about their experiences, sure made the experience a whole lot nicer. I have to say I have not enjoyed my self on a Holiday so much in a long time, and I even met my lovely wife there too. I have included a few pictures, of our wedding day, or you and your wife Tatiana to have a look at, hope you like them.

"...overwhelmed with attention from the beautiful ladies..."
I attended the April/May Cartagena Tour. I writing this email to recognize my interpreter, Roberto Ortiz for his efforts to making my tour experience a success. I don’t want to exclude Ken, Rafael, Arnold and Grace for their outstanding service and assistance during my tour. However, Roberto made my Cartagena Tour above my expectations of A Foreign Affair Company. Thanks to Roberto, I had the most dates in my tour group and was overwhelmed with attention from the beautiful ladies of Cartagena. He scheduled my dates and provided the ladies with feedback for me. My fellow tour members commented several times on Roberto’s attention to my welfare and interests. They all stated that they would use him when they return to Cartagena.
Roberto's personality was easy going and displayed integrity. This was my first trip to South America. I must admit that I had some reservations about South America and the tour. However, he made me feel relaxed while enhancing my opportunity to meet new people and visited places all times of the day. He provided me with detailed explanation of the customs and culture of Cartagena. Thus, my reservations disappeared quickly as I enjoyed the people and the beautiful City of Cartagena. I noticed that Roberto was more than an interpreter. He became my personal assistant, tour guide and best friend while I visited Cartagena.
Roberto’s current occupation (English teacher in Cartagena) and living experiences in the United States made all culture and language barriers non-existent. He taught me Spanish and gave me advice on things not to say while he interpreted for me with my dates and transactions. He took care of my safety and insured that I did not get over charge when I made money transactions with vendors. For instance, the taxi drivers complained to his supervisor, Rafael about him not letting taxi cab drivers at the hotel charge me higher prices. However, Roberto's loyalty to me and your company mission, making my tour rememberable experience; he continued to do what he thought was best for his client and your organization.
Roberto was so attentive to making my tour a success he made arrangements for my new fiancée to meet me at the airport to see me off. Roberto is currently assist my new Columbian fiancée with enrollment in an English class and completion of her immigration forms.
Roberto's services, loyalty and friendship were beyond whatever I could have paid him. Due to his strive for service excellence, I have chosen a fiancée in Columbia, returning to Columbia for my vacation in Columbia in August and will continue to promote your Cartagena Tour to all of my friends. I am an African American Professional, living in the United States. I believe in you service because I am one of your success stories. I believed so strongly in your service that I would be willing to even invest in your company if the opportunity presents itself in the future. When I get married, I promise to email your company wedding pictures for your website. Thanks Roberto, Ken, Rafael, Arnold and Grace for the best experience in my life.
Sincerely, MURREL

"...excellent beach, perfect climate & beautiful & friendly ladies..."
Hi John, I just returned from the Cartagena tour & thought I'd write a brief letter regarding the tour. I enjoyed the Cartagena tour immensely, it was the perfect place to go, excellent beach, perfect climate & beautiful & friendly ladies. Cartagena is not the Colombia everyone is accustomed to hearing about, I would describe it as a beautiful, tropical paradise & I hope to return at least once or twice by year's end. I going to recommend your tour a couple of friends whom are interested in traveling to Colombia. My Cartagena pictures have already changed a few minds about traveling to Colombia, or at least Cartagena, all said it looks like a beautiful city, & I agree. Your AFA staff in Cartagena was great, they did an excellent job on the socials & the other excursions, Rafael & the staff made us feel very welcome. The translators were great, all were good people. I would like to mention one in particular, Roberto, I have only say good things about this translator. His english-translation abilities & people skills were second to none. He made life very easy with the language barrier between myself & the ladies. He had a good intiution & created an enviroment of dialogue with myself & the ladies. One night, after a social, he put together a "Dancing excursion" with 4-5 guys & about 10 ladies that was a definitely one of the high points of the trip. He surprised me at the airport by bringing the lady (that I plan to return to see) to see me off, I didn't expect it, but it was great. When I return, I would hope Roberto could help me once again with my visit to see Yanin. I also would like to say I appreciate AFA for their tours that allow us to meet wonderful women of other cultures & see different parts of this world. Many Thanks.

Dear John, Gary et al of the A Foreign Affair team...

Thanks for such a wonderful site. You really do deliver what you say! I have been a member for 2 months and I have more addresses and girls writing to me than I know what to do with. I'm a fairly good looking young guy, but I'm not used to having to turn down beautiful women, however since I've meet a couple of girls worth visiting, I've decided that I no longer need further addresses. Your site is great and the responses have been swift. Keep up the good work.

Please cancel my Platinum membership.

Thanks in advance, Steven W.

"... Just amazing ..."
Dear Elina and Ron,

Thanks Elina for giving me the CD of pictures at the airport. Also, for the great time I had at your two socials. Sunday night I met Julia and had a most wonderful time with her. She was so surprised during musical chairs when I ran away with her. And enjoy see her pictures with her and I. Even though she's too young; I still talk with her on the phone back her in the states. Your photographer guy really went nuts over her in her pink outfit. Also, Thanks for talking with Yulia in Kherson; she was the 20 year old blond with her mother. I didn't have the right feeling with her so I wanted you to talk with her to see what she was up to. Now she would now like to come to me and if everything works out she would consider marrying me. Wow. So fast. I talked with her because at the end of the night she didn't want to kiss me or even the next day. Later I found out she 20 years old and has never gone out with any one. She said she has 6 men in her classes and 20 girls. Just amazing. I have to go back again soon. I can't say enough of what a great job your organization did. It was so worthwhile going to see all the women and the country.

I see you and Ron and your two kids and think to myself I want the same kind of lifestyle too.

Sincerely,

Gary F.

"... an interesting and worthwhile experience ..."
As I understand I am only the 2nd Australian to complete this tour with AFA. And at the outset, I should say there are good-looking, romantic women in Australia, however these are just not enough of them to go around. In the Ukraine where women significantly outnumber men, you will find many attractive and romantic women. It will cost a few dollars but I think you will find this tour an interesting and worthwhile experience.

"... a golden opportunity to practice the long lost art of romance ..."
Hello John!
How are you doing? All is well here. I just wanted to again thank you for a wonderful trip and excellent service! Using your company was the best decision I have made in many years! I have started writing the book on my time there in St. Pete and, as a result, have spoken to several of the "boys" who were there. None of them have had any negative words about the trip. I hope to complete the manuscript in about 4 months and would like to send you a copy to peruse and obtain feedback. I have also, along with several of the guys, have began retrieving all necessary information to proceed with the paperwork to bring Oksana home to me and our future! I am very excited and have already spoken to her several times on the phone. We both are very much in love! I wish to thank you and your staff for dispelling the rumor and misnomers about the "mail order bride" industry. There is nothing mail order about the way in which your company performs its operations! The ladies are treated with dignity and respect and search for a better life with a decent man. There is nothing "degrading" or "belittling" about two hearts searching for love. Shame on the American media for bias and sensationalism! The hearts of intelligent, caring, and loyal women cannot be "bought and paid for". They must be won buy the gentleman. The only women I know of that can be bought by materialism are the ones presently occupying the nation we call home! This trip was a golden opportunity to practice the long lost art of romance. I have already recommended AFA to several of the men here in Idaho who search endlessly for what exists bountifully in Russia; loyal, intelligent, and sincere women! What a country! Again, thank you for all your help and understanding. As we all know, a business exists to make money, however, a sincere business can make money and provide an elevated level of personalization; AFA accomplishes both those goals! Thanks again John!

"...fast, personal and right on target ..."
Hi Chris,

It's been a while since we communicated. I want to say thanks to everyone at AFA for being what you are, so that Elena (41186) is brought into my life.

Many times I wrote to you, and a few times to John Adams with questions or seeking advice. Your replies were fast, personal and right on target. You even supported me a few times when natural disasters threatened to disrupt the budding relationship.

Based on the latest time estimates from the Warsaw embassy (2-12 weeks, but averaging 4 weeks), we expect Elena to be here in July and the wedding very shortly there-after.

It wasn't included in this letter I sent out today. But I have told every unmarried person that I know, about your services. I have also recommended your travel services, as well as your referral service to an attorney for the visa process. My situation is different; expensive and complex, because I am not in the mainland US, but a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean. For the average person, your services would save thousands of hours of labor, frustration, and thousands of dollars in expenses.

Regardless, your services and agency made it all possible. It would not have happened without you. Thank you. Now, I share with you a letter I sent to close friends and family today.

Sincerely,
Chet

"...worth every penny spent..."
Dear AFA.
I went on the Kiev trip in September of this year and it was nothing but GREAT. I met a lot of nice women and have some really strong prospects for marriage. There were so many Beautiful ladies to choose from it made it hard to narrow it down. I have found one though and am pursuing her and will return to Kiev in January or February 2003 to bring her home to me. You kept your word on the fun and excitement and it was worth every penny spent..

"...every time we talk on the phone you can hear and feel the anticipation growing..."
I just wanted to take the time and say you are what you say you are. I was not a big believer in a "foreign bride web site". however, you guys made a believer out of me. i have been corresponding with a beautiful woman from saintpetersburg for a few months now. she is witty, smart, funny, and seems to be very sincere. we have sent pictures to each other and both of us like what we see. we keep talking about when I can go to Russia. I am sure I will make the trip very soon. we are both looking forward to meeting. I am sure the sparks will fly, because every time we talk on the phone you can hear and feel the anticipation growing between us as the conversations become more and more intimate. I look forward to using your services in the very near future to bring me to the woman who may be the love of my life thanks......

"Comparing Club Med to AFA is like comparing Joey Buttofuco to James Bond."
AFA,

I want to tell you, THANK YOU!!
I had an absolute blast in Yalta.
As a seasoned traveller I am very aware of the "behind the scenes" planning it takes to pull off the socials. I truly appreciate everything you and your staff did to make it possible for us to enjoy our time in Yalta.
Comparing Club Med to AFA is like comparing Joey Buttofuco to James Bond. At Club Med you're like a squirrel looking for a nut on Gilligan's Island. At AFA It's like you're on a premier wine tasting tour in the south of France with the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders.

Thanks again for everything.

"...top notch and very well orchestrated..."
I recently attended the Crimean Tour in Yalta. Everything was top notch and very well orchestrated. Staff support and hotel services and accommodations were great. Yalta is lovely resort town and the beauty of the Crimean peninsula offers many a nice setting to take a lady. Last but not least the crown jewel of Ukraine: the lovely and charming ladies; after having met several very nice, intelligent, and traditional marriage minded ladies I have no thought about American women ever again! I highly recommend this or any tour that you conduct to anyone looking to meet many attractive ladies in a short time period.

"Half look like fashion models and the other half like movie stars"
Dear Foreign Affair:
Thanks so much your excellent website. If it wasn't for you, I would have never met my future bride Maria. We have been corresponding for about a year now and decided to arrange for ourselves to finally meet in Moscow. Moscow is a GREAT town and I would encourage any single, red-blooded American man to visit there just to see all the GORGEOUS women. WOW! I am told that the female to male ratio there is around 5:1, and after seeing the bountiful selection of ladies, I would agree. Half look like fashion models and the other half like movie stars. Beautiful all and they take care of themselves too, unlike the women in the States. If you're tired of women who think that dressing up is wearing sweat pants and a ball cap, you'd be in for a VERY pleasant surprise. Not to mention the level of sophistication and lady-like demeanor, and not a horrible tattoo or body piercing to be seen. Just all natural feminine beauty. WOW! again. Anyway, Maria and I met in early April of 2002 for a fairy tale week together. She was all and more than I could have ever hoped for and she now wears my ring upon her delicate little finger. Believe me, if I can finally find the love of my life, it's possible for anyone. Ironically, on the way back there was a fellow returning from St. Petersburg with the same success. We toasted and laughed the whole way back. Once again, thanks to A Foreign Affair for the excellent website and all the beautiful women it has to offer.
Happily yours

Dear John,
I recently visited Kiev on the AFA tour but travelled direct from London into Kiev. Gary Kryk your Tour Manager was just simply fantastic with his handling of the whole tour. His approach was very professional with the hallmark of a best friend and also within the visiting guests there was nothing but praise for his abilities. Please convey to him my personal thanks for making my visit a very pleasurable one.

"The women are beautiful, sexy, and numerous."
Dear John:
I don't have much time, so forgive me for being brief and to the point. I did go with Gary Kryk last September to St. Petersburg, Russia. The women are beautiful, sexy, and numerous. I married Elena Ananieva last month. We are very happy. If you want to find a good woman for marriage, I highly recommend A Foreign Affair and St. Petersburg, Russia. AFA will give you great support and personal advice as to how to find the right woman. I enclose a photo for you of Elena and myself. AFA is for real. The women are for real. Go and you will have the experience of your life. Of course, there are no guarantees in life, but the worst thing that would happen is you will have one fantastic vacation.
Good luck,
Erik

"...wrote well over 300 letters..."
Dear John, In July of 1999 I began correspondance with Elena through Medellin Women She visited here in Houston on a student Visa for a few months in Feb. & March 2000, I spent three perfect weeks in St Petersburg with her in June and July, 2000. The St. Petersburg area and the people are remarkable, much more than interesting. Elena and I have developed a deep and permanent relationship via Letters, phone calls, E-Mail and visits. We actually wrote well over 300 letters. She is a consumate LADY, brilliant individual, beautiful woman, and an absolutely fabulous wife. We are married, have been for months, and consumately happy. My wife now has her permanent spousal Visa, airline tickets in her purse, bags packed, and this Thursday August 16th arrives in Houston, TX permanently to begin her new life. Elena was a professor, teaching in St Petersburg until a week ago. Under the circumstances I must request removal from this list Since December of 1997 I have used & recommended Medellin Women to many of my engineering associates who are currently your clients. Thanks again for bringing us together, your service far exceeded my expectations. Sincerely Yours,
John & Elena

"All you expect and a lot more..."
Hello guys: I was a member of the June tour to Saint Petersburg. To be honest, I was very skeptical of the statements made by your site and staff prior to the tour. But I figured why not, it would make an interesting vacation. I was wrong. Everything you stated on the site is 100% true. I fell in love with the city and the Russian people. They are much more friendly than I had expected and the women are not to be believed. They are as honest and nice as they appear. This is no game; they are like girls were here in the 50's. No pretence, no attitude, no baggage, just all girl. They love their country and family, but the men there are playboys and or drunks. So the girls are looking for a family man. I will be returning next spring to finish something I started on the June tour. I advise anyone who is considering a trip with Medellin Women to go. It is all you expect and a lot more.
Thanks

"From all over the world..."
I was contacted and advised that you are writing an article and wanted to contact some guys that have used this service. I am not sure what sort of information you are after but will just jot down a few ideas and impressions ( probably more than you want as I can get carried away once started ) and if you want any further info. you can email me back.

Firstly I guess you will want some info on me. I am a 33 year old New Zealander. Education wise, I never went to University but have military training and 8 years experience as an aircraft electronics technician. I have traveled a bit and have worked briefly in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, and for 1 1/2 years in Thailand. I have owned my own business a couple of times in the past but currently work as a Fleet Manager for a fishing company in Micronesia. I have never been married and do not have any kids.

With regard to their agency, I will give you a brief outline on the extent to which I have used the service. So far I have used the website to check out the catalogue of Russian women and to obtain addresses for correspondence. I have also used their email forwarding / reply system to send / receive letters to ladies in Russia. I have even been a part of one of the tours to St. Petersburg, although this was only 5 days ( not a full tour ) which I tacked on the end of a holiday in Ireland and the UK.

My reasons for using this service are many fold ( how long have you got ), but generally my current working / living environment and a dissatisfaction with the dating scene, and expectations of the women back home. For the last 10 months I have been living and working on a small island in the Western Pacific. While there are one or two pretty women here, I generally don't find the local girls attractive and there are some definite cultural differences which put me off getting into a serious relationship here. Also, not a lot to do here out of hours and I enjoy writing letters, so it passes the time, with the large attraction that I may just make an acquaintance that leads on to a serious relationship.

With regard to the women back home, and the ones I have had relationships with in the past, they have just never seemed to work out. Some are off on their own agenda and unwilling to compromise, or the opposite, no drive or desire to see the world or try new things. I won't even mention the women I have met who have been into the feminism thing ( or their version of it ) for fear of turning this letter into a novel. So the idea of meeting a woman from another culture appeals to me, with their different priorities, expectations and outlook on life.

Another reason for using a postal dating service is the medium itself. Often I have a problem in that until I start to get to know a woman and relax a little, I am not a good conversationalist. I get a verbal version of writer's block and have trouble making conversation. If I can get to a second date, I'm usually fine from then on, IF! However doing things by post is different, you can choose your words before you send them, and by the time you physically meet the woman, the ice is broken and there is some history there to foster conversation.

As far as how I have found the service , without trying to sound like I am being payed ( for the record, I'm not ) I can sum up the experience in one word which is Service. All the way from their website which is comprehensive with many features and yet very easy to use, to their tours to St. Petersburg, John and the rest of the team are extremely helpful and prompt in their replies to questions. For example it was almost at the last minute that I decided to include some time with the St. Petersburg tour, on top of an already planned trip to the UK. This must have been a bit of a curve ball for John as I wanted to fly into St. Petersburg a day before most of the tour arrived from the States, and leave half way through. Also I wanted to write to 4 or 5 ladies before I left to try to set up some meetings, and hopefully get a reply back from them, using the email forwarding service, ( all this, about 2 weeks before departure ). Oh and by the way John, can you arrange a Visa for me and have it couriered to an address in Britain. All of this was accomplished with plenty of email but no drama ( from my side anyway, don't know how easy it was for John to sort it all out ), and I duely arrived in St. Petersburg on July 14th.

Regarding the St. Petersburg tour itself, it was extremely well run, and Ron and Elena did a grand job of keeping things running smoothly. St.Petersburg is a fascinating place, in itself well worth a visit let alone with the possibility of meeting the woman of your dreams. Unfortunately I only had time to attend the first of the four socials planned for the guys on tour, but was enough to give me the idea.

For me, what really made the trip was a superb mix of a fascinating city, with the opportunity to meet some classy ladies. On the one hand you have a city full of history, Cathedrals, museums, art and culture; and then every few nights you are let loose in a room full of intelligent, educated women, all of them pretty and some being just plain gorgeous. And all of these ladies were single and I think most were seriously interested in the possibility of meeting someone for a relationship. It was surreal enough to appeal to my sense of humor; to be for once in my life outnumbered by women 5 to 1. The staff was good in this situation and showed their experience by often doing the thinking for you, "time to change tables", "come and talk to this woman", "you seem to be having trouble, here's an interpreter", that kind of thing. In fact most things are taken care of by their agency including interpreters ( available most times not just at the socials ), city tours, the hotel, etc. etc. It was very easy to kick back, relax and have fun.

As to how well these tours work, well I guess that primarily depends on what it is you are seeking. Like I have said, the tour is very well run and the opportunity is there to meet a large number of women, so if you seriously want to strike up a relationship with an attractive, educated and intelligent women, all the ingredients are there and their agency has done most of the work for you. What's left for you to do is talk to as many ladies as you can, decide which ones interest you and then try to generate some interest from those ladies ( and hopefully a phone number and follow up date ). I guess the success of a persons' tour depends on the individual and I can only really comment on my own experience. At the end of the day their agency make it as easy as possible for you, but it's still up to you to pick up the ball and run with it. As to my own success, I had a great time and even though I was only there for one social, I am corresponding with one lady, and waiting to see if another I met will write back. My other mission of getting a bit of a handle on the culture and character of the people was also successful, and dissolved my fears that forming a relationship with a Russian woman could bring along with it some major cultural hurdles and other problems that could rise up further down the track and kick me from behind.

And my impressions of the ladies of St. Petersburg, well I was very impressed. Generally these women are intelligent and educated; they are cultured and most have an appreciation of fine music, art, ballet, opera, etc, enough to make me feel to uncultured colonial I am. I was delighted to find most had a well developed sense of humor and sarcasm was not lost on them ( a point that stood out after my time in Asia and my present location ). Very many of the women are extremely attractive with beautiful eyes and nice complexions. Their accent was pleasant and many of their mannerisms and terms of speech were also appealing. I could go on but you get the idea, I am quite taken with the women there, and hope to one day find a soul mate among these wonderful women.

What more can I say, as far as their agency goes, I guess my best recommendation is that I do not use any other service. I have checked out a lot of others on the internet, but their agency was the first I tried and their level of service has been such that I have not felt inclined to try any others. They have a large database of women and many new ladies joining every week, so feel confident they can keep me busy in the letter writing department. Any questions or requests I have had have been dealt with promptly and their email forwarding system cuts down delivery time by heaps ( especially from here ). Their tour to St. Petersburg I can recommend, especially if you have a serious interest in a relationship with a woman from Russia. Even if by some incredible misfortune you do not meet any women there that you wish to correspond with, it will give you a valuable insight into their culture, way of life and character of Russian ladies. If you have any kind of sense of adventure, sense of humor, appreciation of culture and admiration of beauty, you will have a truely great time which will make a lasting impression on you.

Well, as I warned you at the beginning, once I got started it was possible it could turn into an epic. I hope there is some information here that you are looking for. If you have any further questions, I would be happy to answer them just contact me by email.

Regards, Steve

"On the fence?..."
By the way, if any of you guys are on the fence, I'm glad to offer my endorsement for the tour. I had a blast. I didn't get engaged, but that wasn't my objective on the first trip. I did get to meet 150 of the most beautiful women I've ever seen in my life. I dated about 6 of them, which was too many, but it could have easily become 26. I'm age 53 and it was hard to believe that so many beautiful women eagerly wanted to go out with me (I dated ages 24-38) and gladly offered me their addresses and phone numbers. I even had women I never met, referred by their friends, that called me at the hotel and want to go out with me. The Russian women are attracted to courteous men that are stable and friendly. They are apparently starved for these basics, which the Russian men aren't giving them. They don't blink an eye at age difference, in fact being a bit older is often an advantage. They graduate high school at 15, then get married, and have a 90% divorce rate by age 25. Russian women are wise about basic values in men, and so they mellow out at a much younger age than American women. Once you've tried Russian, you won't want to go back!

The agency does a bang-up job of orchestrating the socials, finding good accommodations, recommending restaurants, tours, providing interpreters and a socially fun and friendly atmosphere, which everyone likes a lot. Now I'm trying to do the details myself on a second trip, mostly for challenge, so now I really appreciate what a good deal the tour really is.

The socials are your best bet. You can spend months or years writing beautiful letters. But you make the strongest impression by being seen in person, especially at the socials. All the artificial limits women apply in letter-writing just fall away when they see you live and in person, ready to be fun and friendly at a classy party. (And don't forget to bring a good suit or even a tux!!) You and the other guys have, in effect, invited the cream of the crop. You have so many wonderful choices that now you can focus on important things like English fluency, humor, compatibility, education, devotion and commitment. These women go through so many problems every day of their lives that it is an honor to be invited to a delicious dinner with Champagne at a four-star hotel. These women know exactly what they are doing, and they are _not_ being exploited. When was the last time a first date offered to make you a home-cooked meal or to sew that little tear in your shirt? Makes you appreciate the basics. The socials are great and their agency has figured out the right way to do it.

On the Metro, even the escalator ride is a trip in itself. It takes about 2-3 minutes, and seriously, on every escalator trip you will pass about 30 Cosmopolitan cover models. They are everywhere. I was repeatedly called 'handsome' by these beautiful women, which was becoming infrequent in America. What a boost for any bachelor! I also made good friends with the interpreters. I got to meet Russians in their homes, eat their wonderful cooking, and I got a whole new perspective on what's important in life. None of the stereotypes I was led to believe for years about the Russians is true. On the contrary, they are the most hospitable, good-hearted, down-home, country-like people you would have to go into rural America to match. In short, it was the vacation of a lifetime. I look forward to going again soon.

"Tongues dragging on the carpet..."
Yes! It was a vacation of a lifetime. The city and people were beautiful! It takes a little while to get used to the culture change but when it comes to men and women they never change! All the guys were picking lint out of their mouths. Their tongues were dragging on the carpet and drooling all over their clothes. American women of this caliber would not even look at these guys! In Russia the women always show interest and conversation. Learn a phrase or two and the girls go nuts! I am going to live in St.Petersburg all of next summer. I will have a year of Russian under my belt before I go back. The Russian people love anything American including you! TODD CUSON

"An adventure of no small proportions..."
Just meeting one single, attractive, intelligent, Russian woman in her native St. Petersburg is worth the price of the trip. There are thousands like her in this beautiful city. It is an adventure of no small proportion that includes the best and cheapest ballet and opera in the world, wild cab rides, terrific romantic river cruises, marvelous sight-seeing, fascinating language and culture. There are differences to overcome, like the water, the Russian Mafia, the money, and the language if you don't speak Russian. However, an adventure would not be that without a little challenge and danger. The staff is open, supportive, knowledgeable, and helpful. They did everything in their power to make the trip a success for everyone.

"Angels in the architecture..."
I joined the group on Sept. 10 for the two-week trip to St. Petersburg Russia.
This trip was a fantastic experience. Some of the guys wanted to find a Russian wife, and some wanted to find a Russian girlfriend (or two) and just have fun. Either way we were not disappointed. I think two or three of the guys actually got engaged on this trip.
The parties were great, and the ratios were mind-boggling. Five or six women per guy, and the girls were young and gorgeous. We actually starting to complain that the ratio was too much to handle! (Women everywhere -- I kept thinking of the Paul Simon song about "angels in the architecture, spinning into infinity.")
The hotel was 4 star with your own room and bath, the Metro was a easy way of getting around, and the palaces of the Tars were a trip.
So, If you're thinking about going -- do it! Medellin Women is run by a group of very hard-working guys who want you to have the best time possible, and you will.
Because of this trip, a Russian girl is visiting me over Christmas, and I'm going back again this summer.
So, do it!

"Politically correct at the expense of candor..."
The arrangements made cover a range since personal preferences vary. our agency provided (a) socials where eligible Russian women, with requests for specific individuals honored if possible, (b) semi-private group encounters, which is really quite good. (c) arranged personal meetings with specific persons (some women find the socials uncomfortable and prefer to meet privately), (d) assistance with one's own arrangements to meet individuals outside any introduction by our agency. With respect to our agency, so far as I could determine, and there was one fellow in my tour who was quite systematic, they are among the top agencies and the choice seems to be more influenced by personal intangibles such as wanting to meet a woman who lives in a major cultural center and so on. The chaps on my trip were all upper middle class with a genuine interest in meeting someone. The women were generally university educated and attractive with a genuine interest in marriage. It might help to bring photographs of one's house, neighborhood, and city. The reason is that the system in Russia generally had everyone living in apartments which were poorly maintained so it was sometimes helpful to have something like that to show the differences in lifestyle. A similar provision applies to personal automobiles which are rare in Russia as a result of an emphasis on public transit. I don't know what article our agency is referring to so I cannot comment on that. There was one article on such agencies in the International Herald Tribune (Natasha meets Joe) that I read while in St. Petersburg. My best general comment is that many such articles are the result of the current fad of being politically correct at the expense of candor, honesty, dealing with the hard truths of life. I mention candor and honesty since that, plus treating the women you meet with the full dignity and respect accorded by traditional families in the West, is appealing to these women.

Yours very truly,

"Thanks for for the best trip of my life..."
I just wanted to thank John, and all the rest of the staff at Medellin Women. My November trip to St. Petersburg was an incredible experience. It was ten times what I expected. The customer service I received before and during the trip was more then I could have expected. I felt as though I was treated like a real person, and the sincerity from all was appreciated. The trip to St. Petersburg was a wonderful time in itself, but add to that the whole romance side of things, and it was well worth the price I paid (and this comming from an Accountant). Looking back now, it was easy to see why we were all so overwhelmed. To go to a very cultered city, to meet 100's (or should that be 1000's) of beautiful women who are just waiting to meet us, this is truely the experience of a lifetime. If anyone ever needs a referral, please feel free to send them my way. If someone is even thinking about doing a trip through Medellin Women, I would simple say DO IT. I wonder why I waited so long. The personal service was unbelievable, even as to going as far as checking with each of us individually throughout the tour, just to see how we were progressing. I think I meet about 20 women I would love to bring back, but stuck with one. But as they say, "you can't always get what you want" so I am not sure if the one I picked will pick me. So I almost sorry to say, but I am sure I will be doing another tour next year. Once is just simply not enough. Thank you again for all that you did, and thank you for providing this incredible service.
Sincerely,

"Too many women???"
I went to St. Petersburg with Medellin Women last September. I have never gone with any other company, but I truly believe Medellin Women is the best.
Their personal service and advice was priceless. I can only think of three complaints about my trip: (1) I couldn't get any sleep for the first five days due to jet lag and excitement. I went about four days and four nights with less than a total of 8 hours sleep. (2) I know you won't believe this, but there were too many women. About 1/3 are "put them on the cover of a magazine beautiful" and by the end of the first week, I was glad I had found my Lena and could just date her and not have to meet any more women. (3) I wish I could have stayed longer and spent more time with my Lena.
Listen, I could go on forever and ever. Bottom line is that I do not believe any other tour company could be any better than Medellin Women. St. Petersburg is truly a place full of beautiful women who want to meet and marry an American man who would simply make a decent husband. All you have to do is treat them like a lady, be honest and sincere and the choice is totally up to you.

"All I had to do was act naturally"
With Medellin Women help, I was surrounded by attractive, good women, and all I had to do was act naturally. The best woman in Russia is coming to America to be my wife. The second best one may still be there. Thank you Medellin Women and thank you Irina.

"Artistically contrived and skillfully executed."
Dear Mr. Redburn:
Please accept my profound gratitude for the many kindnesses afforded me in Odessa, Ukraine. Certainly, you with the lovely and gracious Mrs. Redburn were the ultimate host and hostess. The entire "Affair" was artistically contrived and skillfully executed. Particularly impressive was the dignified and respectful treatmet of The Ladies who were honored Guests.
Gratefully yours
K. Fannin, M.D.
