Hopefully you will not need to go through this many.
If you hang around at my site, read my articles, manuals, and use my consulting services, I guarantee you a heck of a lot better results!
And this does not even include all of the unexpected experiences I have had with the women themselves!
I do not care how many letters you have exchanged or how many phone calls you have made, once you see her in person, things will change.
Show them your sensitive side, what you like to do, how you think and feel. Thinking she is just after a visa: Then again if you thought this way, would you really be interested in writing her in the first place?
At least not until you know more details about her and her photos. I once had a woman tell me her photos were over 2 years old! Generally, the women of Ukraine look even better in person than in their photosand that is a huge compliment!
She will either bleed you until you are dry (if she is very slick) or just disappear after a quick score (if you are lucky).
Any Ukrainian woman who asks you for money is just trying to scam you.
We all want to believe in love at first sight, but many times you look at someone and she looks at you and you know immediately it is just not going to work. Then you need to educate yourself on other ways of contacting your woman.
Sure, sometimes it goes perfectly, but will you gamble 3-4 months of your life and several thousand dollars on a trip to Russia just to find that out!? Not doing your proper research: By this I mean finding an honest and reliable dating or marriage agency, finding out all you can about your woman, learning about the geography, history, culture and language of the country she is from. This will continue to ensure that your agency is honest, and that you are indeed writing to a real woman!
