100% Scam. Such an incredible amount of money you are giving to Women and their Husbands who are conning you into communicating with them, as the website pays the women on their site a % commission for every transaction they produce. It's as simple as that, emotional prostitution. 95% of all the websites dealing with Ukrainian, Russian, Asian, Latin American, Eastern European dating between foreign men and the women of those various nations operates on this business model. However, I assure you, if you have all that money to waste on the website, you have enough money to save up for a trip to wherever your going, and so long as you're not a porn addicted pig of a man looking for a sex vacation there are fabulous Women (not on any site) who will gravitate to you. However, be aware, even when you are there, scams are afoot. I used to live in Kiev and I had a wonderful relationship, but no relationships are perfect, even if the women looks so good you think you could eat her. Russian and Ukrainian women are quite severe because of the environment they have lived, the stringent and deeply self-policing culture of strict adherence to tradition and social norms, as well as the fact men and women in these former Soviet nations are hard drinking, physically aggressive, and mentally strategic in everything they do. Be assured a Russian or Ukrainian woman knows how to wage intellectual war on a man if she is offended, humiliated, or even if she just gets the wrong end of the stick in communication. If they come to believe a certain thing about you, by no fault of your own except a misunderstanding, you will pay for the rest of your life. These are generalizations, but they are generally true. So get your head out of your ass and quit wondering if you're paying for nothing, you ARE paying for nothing and the person/people on the other end are 95% likely to be running some kind of scam on you. And it's 100% true the women on Anastasiadate and many many other websites get paid a % for the amount of money they manage to suck in, all measured by the people who run the site, and the majority of the money going to 'virtual pimps' who recruit the women to these sites. And the women are easy pickings. They live in abject poverty despite the fact they speak 2-4 languages, have 1-4 degrees, and now live in a war torn country. They ARE more intelligent, and more attractive than 99% of the women in North America by simple virtue they adhere to ancient principals of family structure, marriage, monogamy, etc.. However, you can imagine their sense of entitlement to a better life, and their vulnerability to rational that might give them that, when it comes to using their God given assets to make an extra buck, and all they have to do is sit at home and chat with me. And remember, unless a woman is appearing on Video chat, she is most likely a man pretending to be a woman to get your money. And if it is a real woman she is on the Video chat to make more money for herself than through all that tedious emailing of letters back and forth. Get it? It's a total Scam. So if going there and getting a wife is that attractive to you, you'll have to go there, you'll have to get comfortable with their culture, their customs, and you'll have to live by them in strict accord if you want to keep peace between the sheets with a born and bred Ukrainian woman. I $#*! you not!
