July 2019. This is my final review of site. I maintain a 5 star rating. This site is the real deal and as far as I know the only payment site with real integrity. Slandering reviews on this site are all fake!
Starting as a greenhorn to international dating in 2016, I have now met 9 women from Elenasmodels (all Ukrainians). I can say that, in general, they are all pleasant to meet. I might continue with one of them. I am undecided. This brings me to the main challenge...
There are not enough women on site. You have to be lucky to meet the one and only. If you consider everything like geography, age preference, language, etc. then you will learn that there is scarce supply.
Given this I would say your best chance of success is to wait for the one and only. If she gives you tons of attention over time. Go and meet her. Going for multiple dates on same trip is also an option. But looking back, this is too easy. Everybody wants to wine and dine. Stay at home if you don't meet the one and only!
Go for platinum membership for a 3 month period. After this period you really should have results. There is no point in being online for longer. Not enough new profiles join. You have to take a really long break, like up to a year. Its easy to cancel membership renewal and you must take care not to get too hooked on site.
Some highlights from my previous reviews:
1. EM is real value for money. Fixed fee might seem high. But it is actually quite inexpensive if you do your research. Platinum is only $259 for three months.
2. You do not have to communicate on site. You can exchange information and communicate free on private social media, apps, webcam, etc.
3. Age difference is realistic on site. Up to 20 is possible in theory. Around 15 is rare. Around 10 i completely realistic. Up to 10 you will have many options.
4. Site is close to scam free. But a site can not control peoples true intentions! If they identify a scammer they will be removed right away. I tried it!
