In November 2006 I became very interested in meeting a woman from the former USSR. I happened upon one of those glitzy "Axxxxxxxx" websites and was hooked for a year.
For 12 months I wrote letters. I even diligently studied the Russian language. In February 2007 I traveled to Odessa to meet a woman.
It was terrible. My instincts told me within 10 seconds that she was not sincere or even very interested in me. I saw her 3 times, then I waited for my flight home. That trip cost me 8 days and about $2000.00
However, I did bring home the inspiration and motivation to study the language. I devoured Rosetta Stone and Pimsluer.

I continued to write letters using the "Axxxxxxxx group".
Beautiful women would be very interested in me, until I made plans to visit them. Then they disappeared. One such "disappearing act" occured in early November 2007. I had already purchased a flight to Kiev and train to Mariupol. The girl was gone. Go figure!

I had in the past discover the Kiev Connections website and spoken with Mr. Ousley. I had not "joined". The girls photos were not as numerous or as pretty.

However, I chose to go ahead and travel to Kiev. I sent Kiev Connection (KC) a list of 14 girls that I thought I'd like to meet. Five of them were not interested. Five of them could not be reached in the relatively short time frame. Four of them wanted to meet me. Remember, I had not written any of them one letter.

My plane touched down in Kiev. By mid afternoon I had 3 dates scheduled. Late afternoon on Tuesday, 20Nov07 I met "Mila". She was already there at the agency when I arrived. Another American man was also there and for a few moments he engaged me in conversation. We had not yet actually been introduced, so Mila kept her seat while I talked to this man. While waiting, she just sat there looking very interested, very pleasant, rather cheerful, and of course, very pretty. Those were my impressions before I ever even met her. When the staff of the agency introduced us, I greeted Mila in the Russian language and we then proceeded to leave the agency.
She was very interested to know how I studied Russian.
Mila suggested we go to MacDonald’s to eat and talk to which I declined.
I asked her to take us someplace nice and quiet where we could talk.
A few more minutes walking and we settled on a very nice quiet restaurant.
The wait staff probably thought I was a bit strange because I wanted to keep backpack with me instead of checking it in with the coats. I wanted to keep my backpack because inside it was my “full size” English-Russian dictionary, a “Lingo” electronic translator, and my photos. We were very comfortable with each other and found communicating to be not terribly difficult. (Mila has an elementary understanding of English)
We liked each other and went so far as to tell each other that on that first dinner date. We also made plans to be together on the following evening.

I did meet another girl the next morning for breakfast. We met for maybe 45 minutes.
I did like her, but I decided to follow my instincts and tell her about Mila and that I felt I wanted to spend more time with her. She seemed to appreciate my honesty.
I did not meet any other girls during my visit to Kiev, only Mila.

During my 12 days in Kiev we spent much time together. Mila took time off work to spend time with me. We went to the circus with Mila’s little daughter. We purchased tickets to attend a concert, and we made plans to take Elena to the children’s theatre. Mila took me for a rather long walk one night that included a number of parks, views of Dniper River, beautiful views of the city, and quiet stroll across the famous “Bridge of Kisses”. It was packed with snow so we had to move slowly and, of course, stop a couple of times.

Sometime late in the first week, Mila took me to meet her parents.
It seemed to go really well. I could not communicate with them very much without assistance from Mila, but they seemed to like me. I was able to spend a bit more time with (daughter) also. A couple of days later, Mila’s grandfather passed away. I stayed in their home and watched (daughter) for about 5 hours while the rest of the family buried him.
Because of this death, we were not able to attend the concert nor take (daughter) to the children’s theatre. However, we were able to spend a lot of time together. It was a very happy time for us despite the occurrence of her grandfather’s death.
We were falling in love with each other. We both seemed to know it and we both welcomed it. As time passed we grew increasingly comfortable expressing our feelings to each other and begin to talk about a future together. Early in the second week I told Mila that I loved her, and that I wanted her to come to the U.S. on a K-1 “fiancee” visa.
I was a little surprised that she did not know the word “fiancée” and that she did not know very much about the process of getting a visa. I had a lot of explaining to do. It was fun and exciting. The wheels were really turning in her head, but she always seemed to me to be serious, sincere and happy. Those were some of the happiest days of my life. I very much look forward to many more with this beautiful lady named “Mila".

My advice: Avoid the glitzy and glamorous "Axxxxxxxx group".
They will trade letters with you, but that certainly does not mean they are interested in you. Especially if the girl is beautiful.

If found what I was looking for through KC. Yes, she is beautiful AND real.

An update:
I returned to Kiev for one week in mid February. It was wonderful.
Mila and Elena's visas were approved by "C&S" (citizenship & immigration)
at the end of February. (Four and a half months faster than expected :D ) Now, we wait for embassy interview. They should be "home" (with me) within 6 weeks, maybe 8. This is so great!
God bless KC and Brett O.
