I found my fiancée soon to be wife "Viktoria" on Global Ladies about six years ago and visited her three times in Ukraine. She waited for me at Kiev Boryspil Airport and we spent a romantic week, each visit, together at a nice hotel in Kiev, the second trip, Viktoria and I flew down to the Republic of Georgia and spent five days together in Tbilisi. We toured Kiev, dined at nice, inexpensive restaurants, attended ballet, the opera and the symphony. We also shopped at the many nearby shopping centers. We even bought food, tea, coffee and juice at a small grocery store to bring back and eat in our hotel room to cut the cost of having to dine out too often.

I've read reviews and testimonials here and I can see these are mixed. As for the men who believed they have been scammed, you may have failed on how to use this site properly. Use common sense when using Global Ladies, which takes know how, time and a great deal of patience.

First of all - and this is where most men who used the site have failed - do not assume that the lady knows you when you "communicate with her" through the agency. The letters you receive are sent to your box without the knowledge of any of the ladies and these are pre-written. Also, keep in mind that if you write to the lady of your interest just through the agency alone and if it seems like the "relationship is moving up a step" where you decide to travel over to meet with her and she's "eager to meet with you at the airport", don't expect her to be there, because in reality she wouldn't know you are coming. Here's what you need to do and it worked for me.

Unless you are fluent or have a good knowledge of Russian, choose a lady whose English proficiency is 4 or 5. Since many of the postings are very old and I've seen some postings that have been around for years, the newest additions are always the first few pages and get older with each subsequent page. Any letter you receive from a lady, check the first four pages or so. If she is not there, the posting is old.

Use the site to write a letter to the lady. Start with a cordial letter where both of you are introducing yourselves and exchanging life stories. If the letters keep coming and both of you develop a relationship and more interest, that's when it's time to ask her for personal contact. Global Ladies will allow you to exchange phone numbers and physical mailing addresses, but will not allow you to exchange personal e-mail addresses.

Set a time to phone her and always keep in mind the time differences, especially if you call from Canada or the United States. Ukraine is 7 hours ahead of the eastern time zone and 10 hours ahead of the Pacific time zone. The morning hours, depending on your time zone, are the best times.

You may have to re-introduce yourself after she answers since she might not know you. Here, you will need to be cordial again, and she may sound different than what she "wrote" through the agency. Ask her politely for any other direct contact information: personal e-mail address; Skype or Viber. Most Russians and Ukrainians use Viber, so get a Viber account. It's free of charge to upload and use, but if she has a Skype Account and you can make video calls, then you know she is genuine if she looks like what you've seen in her photos.

The rest is easy! Here is where both of you can build up a relationship with direct contact and more often. You will no longer need to rely on Global Ladies anymore. You will both know each other better and, yes, she will be eager to meet with you at the airport and even be there for you.

In summary, I would recommend Global Ladies to a friend.
