Do women fall short of their photo?

Good to see a message board here at Kiev Connections. It helps procure the sense of a legitimate business.

I have been using the service for 4 months now, and will visit Kiev in early February.

For those of you who have been and met the ladies in the pictures, I have a question??? Do they live up to the picture or do they fall short? I have noticed that one lady had some very professional looking pictures on her profile and looked like a professional model. Then one day the profile was updated with two or three new pictures and left one of the old pictures in place. The lady in the new pictures differed so much I thought they were of two different women!

The lady I have been writing the past month or so has some very attractive pictures on her profile. I sent her a rose and then received an e-mailed picture of her receiving it. I did not see much resemblance in the e-mailed picture to the lady I had seen in the profile. Is this something anyone else has noticed?

Glamour shoots and brushed up photos, are a good tool to use to get men interested in joining agencies such as this, but I want an honest representation of the person I am corresponding with. If this is taking place, it is a disservice to both the male and female clients. It winds up hurting the feelings of the woman and makes the man feel like a superficial pig (of which most of us are or we would probably not be here) and it is a waste of time and money!

It is obvious that the agency uses the psychology of average western men wanting beautiful women just by reading their own words.....

"You don't have to be rich, handsome, famous or lucky to have a beautiful, devoted wife. Simply start corresponding with the women of Kiev Connections and take the first step to realizing the dream life of every man."

It's capitalistic marketing at it's best! That's fine with me to say those things, just keep the photos real.

I hope the two incidents I have seen are the exception and not the rule.

Please share your experiences

Hi Ryan,
I just began using this site. Brett has been pretty helpful. Bob has been keep'n it real. Thanks Bob!:) I know what you mean about the glam shots to real world. I have made it a note not to consider a woman that does not have a candid pic also. Are you using this sites service for your trip? I am planning a trip for late Feb. To bad we won't be there together. It would have been nice to have a wingman:)

Hi Mike,

Yes, Brett and his staff are very helpful. I have been using their service for four months now and they have never let me down. Yes, I am using this service for my trip.
Good idea about the candid pic thing, you might also steer clear of those who smile but never show their teeth! I saw one woman there who had yellow teeth! God I don't know why they put those pictures up???

It's a pity our trips to Kiev will not overlap. I already have my tickets, how about you, can you reschedule?

I have been pretty harsh in my commentary here at this board so far, but I think such things need to be said. It helps to "keep it real" as well.

Ryan, I met with 5 women from the Kiev Connections website. All of the women I met were instantly recognizable from their photos. Probably the only difference I noticed with my fiancée is that her hair color was different. She's naturally a chestnut brown, but the photos had her with dirty-blonde hair. This is pretty normal practice for women in Kiev as it turns out... they change hair color on a regular basis.

Bob

I hope your right about that. The example’s I am talking about was not merely a change in hair length and or color.

Have you ever watched the pilot episode of Star Trek? The girl Eve, she is beautiful and then the Talosians take away her illusion of beauty, and she becomes this broken down pile of flesh and bone. This is the kind of thing I am talking about.

Probably the largest complaint of men using marriage agencies is that when they meet the ladies they do not look anything like the photo. Agencies are well known to use professional glamour shots, airbrush the photos, and even use photos that are years out of date.

Over 95% of the photos on our site are taken by us. We have converted the kitchen in our office into a poor “Photo Studio”. We take the photos with a $150.00 Canon A-60 digital camera. Out “Photographer” is an 18 year old employee and she does her best to take realistic but attractive photos.

You will recognize consistent backgrounds, white sheet of paper, blue sheet, or my homemade gray-blue cloth. Whenever possible I prefer to take photos outside to get the best representation but because of the bad weather here we can only do this about 3 months a year.

About 5% of the photos are professional photos given to us by the ladies. If we view them as significantly different than they appear we refuse to use the photos. We encourage all ladies to let us photograph them and we give a copy of all of the photos to the ladies at no charge for their own use.

If you ever have questions about any lady feel free to e-mail me.
