This town in the southern part of Ukraine has been called the "city of brides". I am wondering if anyone has been there, what their experiences were, etc.


Thanks!

Never been there as the woman who was writing me from there decided to lose interest when I ignored her (not so) subtle hints about sending some money and gifts.

The Argentinian gentleman sitting next to me on the plane to Odessa last week was going there! However we didn't strike up any further conversation, I suppose he might have been visiting his lady friend :))

Nikolayev is a popular destination. It is close to Odessa but smaller, cheaper and less westernized, girls are less spoiled.

Sadly, there are many scammers and the agencies are as usual making money by obliging you to use their interpreters, and in that case you never know if the girl is there because she likes you or because she is being given a cut by the interpreter… (well I always know, it is the latter, get real). Yet it is possible to get around.

I was there for 5 very long days about 4 years ago. I thought it was a nice city but I didn't see a lot of it. The hotel I stayed at was nice, there was a McDonalds near the center and a very nice internet cafe across the street which is where I spent most of my time. I belive there are several agencies there and most are in the same building.

I made a trip there to visit one lady and we had no chemistry. She had told me she was a translator before I came. She actually turned out to be an agency interperter. We spent most of our time politely trying to spend as little time together as possible.

From what I saw of the city it seemed slightly above average for a city in Ukraine.

For me, that trip was another nail in the VO coffin.

I was there in 2005. I placed ad in the IVISO ( newspaper) I got a reply from one very young girl.

I thought I'd go and visit her and just see what happens. So I took the bus from Odessa. I got there just fine and than took a local bus to meet her at McDonald's, except, I got on the wrong bus ( imagine that) and wound up getting 'help' from a passenger who as it later turned out really wanted me to stay at his home, when I thought he was helping me to get off at the right stop.

I never got to the place , but it was difficult figuring out what he was up to for a good 45 minutes! I finally called up the girl and told her I made it to McD's but it was the other McD's.

We finally met and took her in the zoo, a nice Turkish owned resturant, and a walk along the main prospect. Super good girl, and at only 22yo, she was mature beyond her years. And she had a body to die for!!! But I had no emotional feelings for her.... never saw her again.

So I took the bus back to Odessa and then took a gypsy taxi to with a couple of stoned guys to the city centre.

I think I missed telling that one in my TR!

What emotional feelings..... you just met her for short time [surprised.gif]

She was mature beyond her years...... and a body to die for..... but obviously she wasn't a short blond but.... taller than you! [sarcastic_blum.gif]

I see your travel report is on it's last pages and getting close to Uzbekistan........ meeting in Rostov. I hope that you will start posting your long report here too with dates and titles at the top, so we can follow your long years of chasing FSU women!

I will keep an eye from Russia where I am going tomorrow night! :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's right I had no physical attraction towards her. I was however in complete lust with her body, very slim and very busty!! [drinks.gif]
