1) I sent my wife money before even having met her
2) I did not have any backup plan concerning agencies. Plan-B was to have a good vacation in Crimea, Ukraine
3) I did not arrive on my first date on time, i was late by at least 15 minutes. (And she being a non-typical woman, was on time... first and last time also so far [bat.gif] )

However,

She is now my wife and we have a wonderful son!

Also note: The above version really are mistakes and not recommended for newbies in Russian women dating!

You just have been very lucky..... to find an honest women......... [wink.gif]

Now if your wife was a scammer.......... and she did not have the sense and patience to wait for you to show up.......
you would be still chasing a small mouse ......... in Russia! [sarcastic.gif]

More importantly you would not have had your lovely son to make you happy! [hurrah.gif]

Any how St Peters was a nice place for a ... holiday! [tonque.gif]

Mark,

As you stated and as Yannis has said, you were lucky, I will actually rephrase and say very, very lucky.

You broke the rules Image and you did not get burnt Image instead you ended up with a wife and a lovely son.Image

But then it does depend a lot on the feel that one gets when corresponding with a lady.
Of course the "feel" does depend on how much experience the individual has.

In my opinion, a lady that answers specific questions and shows a real interest in the person that she is communicating with is much less likely to be communicating only to extract money (a scammer) and depending on the "Gut feeling" rules may be bent/broken, as long as the person bending/breaking the rules is aware that they are doing so and also aware of the risks that they are taking.

Yes I sent money before we met [underchair.gif]

Yes I did not have any back up plan [underchair.gif]

Yes I did not spend months getting to know her or her life went there 3 weeks and 3 days after first talking on dating site [underchair.gif]

Yes I got married in less than a year (363days) from first contact [underchair.gif]

Yes I was 4 hours late and kept her waiting in a cold airport for that time [underchair.gif]

Yes i do not recommend any of the above unless you are a complete lunatic like myself [very_funny.gif]

But now have been married for 3 1/2 years love life and have forgotten all the hassles [drinks.gif]

I know why you kept the poor woman waiting for 4 hours!

You were detained by the Police at the airport..... until you paid up! [tonque.gif]

Any how you are a very lucky man!

You broke every rule in the book..... and still got lucky! [surprised.gif]

I think wife deserves the Lenin Medal...... for Bravery marrying a lunatic, as you said! [very_funny.gif]

Sorry to disapoint the police shake down at Rostov happens every time but to my knowledge it has only ever take 20 mins at the most [nono.gif]

The 4 hour delay was at Vienna international airport due to the ICE [hi.gif] ( and no not the lumps in my G&T :) )

I am assuming that these rules that are being talked about only to do with starting the initial communication through the Internet.

Are there any Golden Rules to do with meeting a woman while you are travelling in Russia?

Only one really:

Pay for everything, no matter how insignificant. (And if the woman you're with wants expensive items run for the hills ;))

Most Russian women hate (absolutely hate) frugal people. So they will test if you are frugal usually with something small that seems like a "private" purchase which has nothing to do with your dating. Expect it & pay for it.

In return, she will watch your wallet like a hawk as if it was her own and makes sure you never spend too much.

Those 2 combined means you found a good woman and you can safely enjoy your vacation together.

Very good information.

Russian people do not like egoist and also do not like skupoi.

I am sorry I do not write in English.
"Skupoi" is someone who counts every kopek, in English it means "Stingy"

I make mistake because my friend understand Russian.
