Videos, videos, videos!

Videos, videos, videos!

Guys,

Did you know that there are over 3,500 videos of the many lovely ladies who have their profiles on loveme.com? That’s right. Simply go to the “Foreign Women’s Profiles” link at the top of the page and you will find a selection on the right labeled, “Women: Video Clips”. Most of the clips are from Ukraine and the Philippines. You can also view new clips by selecting “Women: New Videos”. This week there were over 40 new videos you can enjoy.

Viewing these adds a new dimension to your selection process. Often they will speak or even sing for you!

Just another way A Foreign Affair provides assistance in your search for a life partner. Of course, nothing will happen until you make a decision to travel to one of the 9 countries on a romance tour or an individual club tour. Best of luck.

Selecting the “Right” Country

Selecting the “Right” Country

Guys,

Although the phase, “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder” dates back to 3rd century Greece, Shakespeare expressed a similar sentiment in Love’s Labours Lost, 1588: Beauty is bought by judgment of the eye. It is true today, of course

Here is an amusing metaphor – what is the best sport, golf or football? Of course the question is ridiculous. However, on a recent call I heard a guy ask, “I’m confused. Are the girls in Ukraine better than the girls in Columbia?” Given the 45,000 profiles in many countries over the world that AFA offers you, perhaps the question is understandable. With so many beautiful profiles, it can be very confusing. Let’s examine this.

I think that you must consider the question from two perspectives. The first one is easy. As you browse the many profiles, what appeals to you? Perhaps you are attracted to the exotic beauty of the many ladies of Asia – China, Thailand and the Philippines. It is easy to understand. On the other hand perhaps the beautiful Latin ladies or the Profiles from Eastern Europe appeal to you. Obviously, this is a very personal choice. Take your time and make your selection based on what you see.

On the other hand there are cultural differences. A girl from Thailand is very different from a girl from Peru. You would do well to educate yourself about these differences. It is simply a matter of how they were brought up in their home country. However, if you are fortunate to find your life partner and bring her over, she will adopt to your lifestyle easily over time. Many sources are available to you in order to learn these differences. You can use YouTube, Google or purchase a travel book such as those published by Lonely Planet.

This is a very pleasant labor. Once you have made a decision, decide to travel to the country of your choice on a romance tour or an individual club tour. You will not be sorry. I wish you the best.

Profiles – The Real Deal

IMG_7984

Profiles – The Real Deal

Guys,

We are very fortunate that A Foreign Affair provides us with 45,000 profiles of beautiful women all over the world. AFA and its affiliates are very careful to vet these for your protection. Let’s talk about this.

I have been lucky to meet hundreds of the ladies while leading tours. I can assure you that “what you see is what you get”. It is very rare that a woman does not look like her profile. However, there is something you have to understand.

For the most part, the ladies are free to provide their photos personally. Of course they want to put their best foot forward (so should you in your AFA profile.) Often they will hire a professional or a talented friend. On rare occasions they will use Photoshop to enhance their image.

As men, we are very visual. Often we will not pay attention to the important details in the profile in favor of the beautiful images we can enjoy. By the way the ladies are also free to provide most of the details in their profile.

Some tips. What do you seek as a life partner? Hopefully you have thought carefully about this. In all likelihood you are looking for an age appropriate “girl next door” who will love you for yourself and remain faithful for the rest of your life.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with viewing and enjoying the many beautiful profiles AFA offers. Please understand something. The more beautiful the lady is, the more attention she will receive. She may get hundreds of letters. This is only natural.

Look carefully at the photos. What do they tell you about the lady? Is she sitting on a motorcycle in a bikini? Are most of her poses on a bed in a brief negligee? (AFA will not allow any form of nudity) Is she all made up like a super model? Is she posed at an exotic location?

On the other hand, are her photos natural? Is she dressed in a more normal fashion? Is she posed around town doing normal activities?

Think carefully about this before you pursue the wrong girl for you.

Some other tips. Never, never travel to a location to meet only one girl. Perhaps it will turn out well, but the odds are against you. If it doesn’t work out, what will you do then? Naturally you will be disappointed. Perhaps she will as well. Think carefully about it. You are much better off going on a romance or club tour and meeting many girls. The men that I know that have been successful, proceeded in this way. On the other hand I don’t know of any guy that traveled to meet only one girl to be disappointed although I have heard of sad cases.

On another note, AFA is offering many calls recently. Of course there is the regular Monday night call. Bud has started a Tuesday night Latin call. On Wednesday there is a call from Davao in the Philippines, featuring ladies you can speak with. Now there is a similar call from Cebu on Fridays. Also, every other Thursday, Renee Piane, the Love Coach offers advice on behavior, clothes, etc. Take advantage of these as well as Bud’s terrific site, foreignbride101.com. Also attend one of the free seminars listed on loveme.com if you are able.

Of course, the most important effort is yours. Plan to travel to the country of your choice before 2016 ends. You will never be sorry and it is the only way to change your life. I wish you the best.

Guys,

If you want to write to some girls in Odessa, here is a great list from our manager, Svetlana. Have at it! But remember, nothing will happen until you travel over to meet them. By the way, Odessa is a beautiful city by the Black Sea. Best of luck.

The Numbers

IMG_7984

The Numbers

As guys, we are fond of numbers – sports stats, the Dow-Jones, our budget, etc. Of course there is nothing wrong with this. However, when it comes to international dating, please understand something. Your eventual life partner could live anywhere.

AFA offers romance tours to 9 countries. Of course you are free to visit 11 other countries on your own using the club tours. Please understand that this changes often. Each Wednesday AFA will present ladies that have recently offered their profiles. You can view this on the “Foreign Women’s Profiles” link at the top of loveme.com. This week there were 159. I have seen the total much higher. There were 73 from Ukraine, 57 from Asia and 29 from Latin America. The beauty of checking this on a regular basis is that these ladies have not heard from anyone and their hopes are high.

If you are interested in the numbers as of January 15, here they are by country where AFA conducts romance tours. You can find the current numbers anytime by simply viewing the “Search Engine” at the top of loveme.com and looking at the left.

Ukraine – 14,624

The Philippines – 7,237

China – 6,250

Columbia – 3,862

Thailand – 2,328

Peru – 1,431

Costa Rica – 1,045

The Dominican Republic – 675

The total for these 9 countries? – 43,702. By the way, you will need a visa to travel to China or Russia. All other locations simply require your passport.

Also for Russia – 2,938 and Mexico – 90. Of course there are 9 other countries you could visit such as Brazil with lower numbers.

AFA maintains an office in St. Petersburg.

There have been rumors that perhaps AFA will offer tours to Mexico. Of course, they are only that. However, there is an interesting affiliate in Cancun and nearby Playa del Carmen (only 40 miles away).

I hope this has been helpful. Good luck to all, and make that life changing decision to travel to the country of your choice while 2016 is still young.

Letters, letters, letters . . .

IMG_7984

Letters, letters, letters . . .

Although AFA is very clear about the different types of letters, Bud, John and I speak often about this and I have written often, there remains some confusion about this issue.

Once you have provided a profile on loveme.com (and you should), your basic information is available to any of the AFA offices as well as the trusted affiliates all over the world.

Understand that any of the 45,000 ladies who have their profiles on loveme.com are unable to view your information unless they visit one of the offices and request such. This is for your protection.

However, please understand something. The competition among these ladies is great. It is hard to wrap our minds around it because we have become used to the domestic situation where we face strong competition. These ladies are seeking a life partner and have much to offer. Understand that around the world, American men are the “gold standard” of potential husbands. As men most of us offer fidelity, kindness and a stable lifestyle (not necessary rich). This is very appealing to the vast majority of these ladies. There is only one way to really understand this and that is to travel to meet them.

Now that we have had this discussion perhaps you can understand why many of them will send out “intro” letters. Most often they will write the same letter to any number of men, hoping for a response. Not to make money (AFA girls are never paid as other sites will do), but to attract your attention.

For the most part you would do well to take these with a “grain of salt”. However, viewing them without opening them is a good way to learn. If it becomes tedious, simply go to My Info in the member’s area and select “I do not want to receive introduction letters (women who have written to you first). ”

Once you have written to a lady (and you should only do this a few weeks before you intend to travel there), it is a bit different. Her reply will appear in green rather than blue and opening it will cost a bit more.

I hope this helps. Please visit loveme.com and read the details for yourself. As always I wish you the best.

Telephone calls vs. Letters

Telephone calls vs. Letters

Guys,

Many of you write letters. Sometimes they are in response to the large amount of “Intro” letters you will receive once you have a profile on A Foreign Affair (which you should do). Please understand that these letters are usually sent to many clients in the hope that your attention will be attracted. On occasion a letter will be written to you personally. It does not cost much to open an intro letter. If you find the volume annoying, it is easy to stop receiving them. Simply go to your Member’s info section and select” I do not want to receive introduction letters (women who have written to you first). ”

It is very easy to write a letter to any of the 45,000 ladies on AFA. Obviously you can do it at your leisure and say what you wish. You can include photos if you like. Of course there will be a cost as it will have to be translated and delivered. Will you get a response? Perhaps. Understand that in all likelihood, you will have to exercise patience. While we enjoy and expect quick response, it may not be so in other countries.

So, here is a great idea that not enough guys take advantage of. Why not call her instead? AFA will not charge you unless the call is complete. Probably it is an unusual circumstance for the lady. She may receive many letters, but phone calls are rare. Not only that, but you will hear each other’s voices. There is a lot to be said for this. AFA will provide a translator as part of the cost.

Here’s a tip. Like a Boy Scout, be prepared. Write a few questions in advance. Be sure that they are “open-ended”. Do not ask her questions that you can see or infer from her profile. Here is an example. “If you could travel or take a vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go?”

A good call does not have to last a long time. 10-15 minutes is more than enough. The cost for a call is similar to two letters. The details are easily found on loveme.com. Try it – you’ll like it. Best of luck.
