[] Tatjyana’s Day: what is the meaning?
Try and look in a calendar for the holiday – The Day of the Marriage Agency Workers.  Have you found it? Certainly, not! No calendar in the world has such a holiday and the reason is as clear as noonday. This profession has become widespread only after the Internet development, e.g. during last 8-9 years. It is a very short term for a profession, isn’t it? And I think that nowhere in the world you can find a trade union that protects the rights of marriage agency workers :). Meanwhile many of our colleagues feel anxious about St. Valentine’s Day as for 365 days a year we deal wit [...]
[] How to use the dating service in the most effective way: what the doctor ordered!
Are you intrigued by the title? Yes, really today I will open your some secrets that will help you strategically. All people are different, there are no universal recommendations that could help all, but! The dating service is only a device and as any device it has a manual how to use it effectively.   I tried to look at the dating service not as its owner, but as a client in order to be impartial. And I must admit that some tips won’t be in my favor (and you will understand why).  But it is just the way I would act if I were the one who seeks a Russian wife. Are you dying [...]
[] How to give a ring being far from your sweetheart? Helpful advice to those who want to make a proposal.
Ring is an ancient meaningful symbol. It means: - Faithfulness: shows to others that one’s heart belongs to his wife or husband. - Eternity: the ring is round, i.e. it has neither beginning nor end. - And, at last, the ring is made of pure and solid metal. So, the wedding ring symbolizes love and faithfulness, purity and eternity. Naturally they are the integral part of our business and in the course of time we have accumulated a lot of amazing stories connected with rings. How to define the size? The most difficult thing is to choose the right size being far from your [...]
[] How do Russian people celebrate Christmas and New Year?
In a quite different way from your celebration! I am 100% sure. It would be interesting to invite you to Russia for these holidays. Sadly, you can’t come here this year? Well, then, let me tell about the Russian way to celebrate New Year and Christmas.   First of all, I want to note that Christmas is celebrated in January 7 in Russia. I wrote about it in the last newsletter. It is concerned with the fact that Orthodox world lives according to old calendar. Orthodox calendar is two weeks behind. The majority of Russian population is Christians and Moslems. Few people belong to o [...]
[] Hotel or apartment?
Lately I often receive the following question: “I am going to Russia to meet my girl. Where should I stay: at a hotel or apartment? What are pluses and minuses?” Let’s talk about it today. First time in Russia? If you visit the country for the first time and feel uncertain, then it is better to stay at a hotel. What are the advantages: the personnel of the hotel render a lot of services. Minuses: Each service is individually paid! They will cook you breakfast, wash and iron your shirt (you will pay the cost of a new short for that), make your bed, wake you up, call a taxi f [...]

An event that has to do with international marriages has happened this week in Russia. Some people didn’t notice it, some were shocked and we got awfully upset. But let me tell about it in details a bit later and now one more letter - to the point. I'm recently new to your service and I am speaking to a few women. The question I have comes from friends of mine concerning the safety of traveling to the Ukraine or Russia. There are reports of kidnapings of men going over to meet women. How do you address safety issues for men traveling to see these women and how common are safety iss [...]

Let me remind you that last week I told you about the program about international marriages that was shown on Russian TV.  In that program they collected all the negative cases and presented them as natural state of affairs. As a result we have many scared women. On the weekends, by the way, again in prime-time this film was shown again. To reinforce the effect. We’ve received a lot of responses on this subject. Here are some of them. Dear Slava, Thank you for the newsletters you sent every time. I like to respond about the issue in your latest about fear from Western men to [...]

Slava, Since you already have a setup for articles and people who have questions about how the service works, I would add a new article. Something similar to "What is a 'mail order bride'". Then go into an explanation of what the difference is between your service and a typical "Click and order a person" like they are coming over through Fed Ex in a big wooden crate ;) As you know, the term mail order is very demeaning and degrading to some of these women, and I am certain they don't want to be looked at in this fashion. I would make it understood that this isn't [...]

With all the Russian bad press you've been describing in your newsletters over the past few months, I decided to take the liberty of sending you this old American poem. Why? On a personal level, I've found it very helpful to read several times over the last 25 years. Perhaps your readers may have the same reaction that I did, reading it so many years ago. In today's world, the words still ring as true as ever, perhaps your readers may enjoy it as much as I. The poem is called "Desiderata", and I believe it was found in a old Christian church in the city of Baltimore, State [...]

I received many letters in response to the previous newsletter. Here are some of them: Slava, It is an impressive newsletter, very informative and easy to read! I am sure your newsletter is helping many couples and prospective couples. I always look forward to receiving a newsletter from you. But I wonder if you also have newsletter for your women as well. I think, both the men (foreign) and the women (Russian/Ukrainain women wishing to have international marriages) should be equally informed. I have the impression that Russian women (this is just my impression and opinion), in ge [...]

Hello Slava; I've just read the newsletter and must say that I feel bad for John but at the same time feel like he should have known better about sending money to a woman he has never met ... But I guess sometimes love makes us blind in many different ways... I am also glad that he doesn’t hold anyone responsible for his misfortune other than himself... My trip to Russia and the Ukraine over a year ago convinced me that the Russian people are great people to get to know, they would sooner give the shirt of their own backs rather than see you cold.. Those are values that unfortuna [...]

> Hi Slava, > Sorry I am not Christian.  I think your news bulletins should be more > abstract and not treat religion as an assumption that people must have. > Here many of us here are offended by classroom prayer, and our money saying > 'In God we Trust' (Smile) > Ken Thank you, Ken, for the letter and your opinion.   One can be a believer or not, but he should treat tolerantly the values of close people. The traditions of the Easter are laid deeply in Russian women and even the years of the Soviet Regime, when the religion was aggressiv [...]

Dear Slava, You guys are, in many respects, so professional! So, I think I'll propose to you, Slava! (No, relax!) But, - nevertheless: Why do you talk about marrying almost as if it was buying a car? Personally, I would certainly not approach a woman and think one second about marriage before I was 1) fallen totally in love and 2) knew if she could possibly get used to life abroad at all, 3) or if I could live with a half-happy woman, who missed her country and family most of the time - etc. etc. Point is: You guys don't have a clue what it means to change country! Sorr [...]

Thanks so much for the newsletter, I look forward always to read them. I want to say a little about my trip to Russia, before I go to Russia, I heard horror stories about Russia, I was scared, as I was going alone, and have been on airplane once for 1 hour, and have never been out of the United States, let alone, I have been to only 5 states in America, and I drove to these states, so I was very scared. I go to Russia in January, WOW, it was very cold, as I have never seen this in California. Anyway, I want to say to everyone, that I had the most fun, everyone was kind to me, I had no p [...]

- Must I be officially married in order to apply for a Ê-1 visa in the USA? You don’t have to be married in order to hand in documents. Ê-1 visa is also called “a fiancée visa”. According to its main condition the girl should make her mind to stay in the USA or leave for her country within 90 days from the day of arrival to the USA. Does she find that everything really meet her expectations? Does she really want to get married and stay in America for a constant living? You know that it is almost impossible to make a tour trip to the USA for single girls. The Embassy finds dif [...]

Slava,     You are the only Russian I know so please accept my sincere condolences. I am speechless, I am enraged and at the same time I am confident that they, animals who can kill children, only made our orthodox soul stronger.     Three days after the tragedy the newspapers here are talking politics, that lack of compassion I cannot understand. I will never understand how anybody can talk politics at the scene of even one dead child. Please accept my apologies in their name, their soul is misty and they can't see clear. They know only of this present moment, yes [...]

Hotel or Apartment? What is the difference between your hotel for $50 per night and the apartment for $45 per night (ifstaying for less than 2 weeks)?  Is one nicer than the other or what are the differences? Is one closer to the agency or the women I invite to meet will they be staying in one particular hotel or your hotel? The apartment is situated in the center of the city and the hotel is also not far from the center, near our office. The difference is that at the hotel they will offer you breakfast and will clean your room every day, but they will also turn out all yo [...]

Dear Slava,     I rejoice with your growth, and with the many more possibilities of dear wives you give us at Chance for Love. But remember, don't get so big that you lose the PERSONAL TOUCH that I see only in your business.     I really liked Jeff's letter. It does make things look promising. God bless you and the staff! Peter Peter,     It is always a pleasure to read your encouraging messages.     We avoid talking about it, because it sounds too grandiloquent. But, nevertheless, PERSONAL TOUCH is our chief principal in work. [...]

Just a little comment. I want to express my agreement with Mr Ian's comment and praises for Mr Slava, Indeed, unfortunately, many Americans are narrow-minded with regards to religion and many things. Mr Slava does not back out in expressing the sentiments of his nation and culture (may it be appearing in contradiction to Americans'). Expect your Russian ladies to be somehow similar to Mr Slava (they wont back out as well with regards to their convictions.. though they may not assert themselves sometimes- its because of language barrier.. but I find Russian women generally well [...]

A lot of e-mails have come in response to arguing about religion, i.e. to the question if we should make our newsletters more abstract or keep telling about these things as about Russian traditions. > Hi Slava, > I wanted to write back to your newsletter and say thank you for standing up for your culture and the women you represent. I say this in reference to the note from Ken about religion. Too often Americans are extremely narrow minded to other cultures and their values, even though we are for 'democracy'. God forbid we make the world in our own image. I loved y [...]

Hello Slava, Sabine and Marsha, Thank you very much for the newsletter, it contains interesting subjects about matters, which are helpful to know the way of life of the Russian and Ukraine Lady’s. I hope you understand it is for us Dutch (European) very easy to think in European way of live, sometimes it is very easy to forget Russian and Ukraine values are different as here, you know what I mean? I also have a question. My brother and his wife have a 3-year-old daughter and she is going to kindergarten, there is also a child from a Ukraine woman and a Dutch man in kindergarten. [...]

Hi Slava, I just read your newsletter about the man who was upset about letters from the lady.  One thing you didn't mention is that a lot of Russian women don't have cars and don't drive.  I know Marianna has to walk from her work to the agency to get my letters and then she walks home.  When I found that out I told her not to worry about answering me right away.  If she ends up coming here I think she will like her new life and she won't have to worry about waiting for March 8 to be treated nice. Have a nice weekend, Randy You are absol [...]
[] A fiancée visa to England: much easier now!
    In the previous newsletter I promised to tell you about how to get a fiancée visa to England. Several girls from our agency have gone successfully through it recently and now has the status of fiancée. But last week I got the following e-mail:   «Thank you for the newsletters, as I was reading your letter I noted about the hard questions they would ask which is not uncommon in my line of work, i.e. I work for the home office in England so I know a bit about the immigration rules. And I know it’s not easy to get in to some places. Ian»     Dear Ia [...]
