Black PR: We don’t send any unauthorized e-mails!
When unscrupulous businessmen exhaust fair methods of competitive activity, they resort to black PR (Public Relations) – scandalous, dishonest means. It seems some of our competitors felt weak: they couldn’t think of any more honest arguments, so they started provocations. This week we got to know that someone had started to send spam on our behalf. There is nothing more abominable than spam. I suffer from it myself and delete 200-500 junk e-mails every day! It is more than distressing that spam comes as though from our service. Don’t believ [...] |

|The 14th of February is left behind
I want to tell you how this day went in our office.
First of all, our office was like a flower house! It was such a pleasure to work surrounded with fresh flowers and to see women rejoicing at the sight of gifts! Some women came to our office and others asked to deliver to their place.
They put on beautiful dresses, made up – they knew that we would photograph them, so they tried to look beautiful! It characterizes Russian women a lot. They always try to look 100%. The second thing that characterizes them – almost everyone invited me to the dinner ta [...] |

|One more couple have used their Chance For Love!
I wanted to thank everyone with the Chance For Love staff for helping introduce me to the woman that I know I will spend the rest of my life with. Oksana and I met on this site in June of 2003. She was the first woman and the only woman I wrote to on this site. The things I noticed about her first were how beautiful she is and then how her profile read, and what really sold me on wanting to write to her is what she wrote in the Seeking Partner section of the bio.
After I wrote my first letter to her, it only took her a few days [...] |

|Good beginning of the year
The year has just begun but been quick to bring us good tidings. We are happy for two couples from our agency who got a fiancee visa to America this month. One of the couples let us know about their joy, it is David and Ilsiyar, and another one hasn’t yet. However, we already know. How???
It is the most pleasant part of our job.
Office. A new client comes. She asks many questions and suddenly says: “Why don’t you ask me how I know about your agency?”. I smile and accept the rules of the game: I ask:
- Well, how?
- My friend has just got a fiancee visa. She met [...] |

There are thousands and thousands of dating services in the Internet. Who but you knows it! :) But which of them are real? Which of them exist only in the Internet? Who has an office and working hours, personnel, computers and other “material evidence”? How can you make sure that women really come to the office, take letters and bring answers? We used to be asked such questions but not now! No need to ask when you can simply see. A year ago we placed a web-camera in our office that shows constantly updated snapshots on-line at the site www.chanceforlove.com. Funny situations [...] |

We are having a holiday soon!
All the hotels are packed, the preparations for celebration started as early as last year, guests from all over the world are invited. August 30 is a big holiday in Kazan – Day of Republic!
It used to be called the Day of Sovereignty, but lately, due to political propriety, it was renamed, since Tatarstan is not a separate state, but a part of Russia. Besides, it is situated in the very heart of it. :)
Kazan is the capital of Tatarstan. That’s why all the main celebrations will take place in our city. What does it mean the Day of Republic? It is an official [...] |

We want to congratulate all Americans on Day of Independence! Freedom is an undoubted value and this day is certainly a great holiday!
One more holiday expects us next week. It is less big, of course. :) Yesterday I was called from Boston: a wedding of our clients will take place next week!

We are in the morning radio show!

|[2004-04-24] Lenin | Days off: our Great Victory over the Fascist Germany|
Do you know the name of the man who turned the trend of Russian history? 87 years ago he stirred up working people against the tsar power and since that time Russia started building “communism”. His name is Vladimir Ulyanov (Lenin is his party nickname). This year he would be 134 years old. All those years the portraits of this man decorated all the public institutions. He was on the medals, elevations of buildings and squares. In every town there is a street or a square named after him. His body is still kept in the mausoleum on the Red Square in Moscow. Every Soviet child knew his b [...] |

Last week we got a letter from one of our clients who wrote the following:
«Hi, Well I have checked out your agency as much as I can given the distance between us. I have exchanged e-mails with the U.S. embassy in Moscow and they gave you a gold star. Doug».
This message roused our interest and we asked for details :). It appeared that this man was married once but unhappily. And as he doesn’t want to suffer again he decided to check out the agency before applying to it. His childhood girlfriend, who is working in the US Embassy in Moscow, helped him with it.
