Hi Elena, I belong to a European dating site and I have been absolutely overwhelmed by thousands letters from Ukraine ladies aged 18-58 from very distinguished professions, journalists, lawyers, including a paralegal and an attorney. Nurses, Doctors, dentists designers models, Etc. Highly talented and gifted ladies. I’m just wondering why I would be receiving such a high number of letters from Ukraine ladies, when I live in a country-Australia; where ladies just ignore me.

So thats just– natural, if you will, to hook up with foreigners.

Thanks mom for deciding not to stay! lel
