DreamConnectionsimage coming soon

DreamConnections

7/5/17

Dream connections is well run and delivers on everything they promise. Their transparency is great as all their tours our at you tube so you know exactly what to expect. I know a lot of guys who complain about the quality of the ladies looks wise as if it was a bait and switch but their you tube videos show what to expect so not sure if thats a valid complaint .

Unfortunately I didnt meet my match primarily because after my trip back to see her, she did things like never looking into my eyes and not showing any affection, and she was always asking me for financial support as if I owed it to her . So these things taken togoether convinced me she was more into me for financial reasons than love. And actually, from what Ive learned from talking to other guys on my tour and who did previous tours is that most ladies expect financial support . Its a cultural expectation especially if youre a foreigner cause to them , all foreigners are rich. And this is the issue they and other agencies wont tell you about in fear of losing business. Match guaranty is the only agency Ive seen that is openly honest about this issue and have done a video about it. DC has three videos on the issue of financial expectations but all three videos only insinuate that you should offer the ladies help with expenses on dates of course (taxi etc ) but also if she needs help with costs of Skyping you (internet connection costs or having to use a Internet cafe) or other small expenses . But their videos do not whatsoever prepare you for this huge financial expectation issue where most (not all, but most) expect it or wont be happy with any less than $100-$150 a month, sometimes more. (Joe w match guaranty quotes $100-$150/mo in his video on financial expectations) and blogger Veronica Olsen also admits this expectation in her videos on dating in Ukraine . Mark himself admits to paying $500 /mo or $600/mo to his lady and is open about admitting that (he says so she would not have to work and could focus on him more) . When my girl complained that $150/mo wasnt enough Mark advised sending her more. In his videos he wont talk about this issue directly but in private, he will advise guys to just send support or send more support if she complains . Bottom lime , if you date in Ukraine , expect to get hints for or to be asked for financial support. If you have doubts about this as true , I strongly advise you to ask other guys whove dated there about this or read more about it online. But again, not 100% of the ladies will do that, about 70% will though. Im an experienced international dater and I never encountered this issue in Asia or Latin America but almost every guy Ive met who dated in Ukraine has experienced this issue. And on the departing bus ride to the airport , half of the guys in the van said they either have started or plan to start sending support, and this isnt something American or western guys usually think of doing with women so obviously their ladies gave the hint or directly asked for support. Ive learned to accept it as part of Ukraine culture so Im ok with it and plan to go back to Ukraine though with different agencies than DC this next time.
