The AFA tour has truly been a life changing event for me.....


My trip here in the Ukraine is winding down and I wanted to take a moment to extend my sincerest appreciation to the entire AFA staff and its affiliates. A special thanks to both Joe and Anna. They were terrific and it was a pleasure getting to know them both.

The AFA tour has truly been a life changing event for me. It far surpassed anything I had imagined it could be. I'm a guy that believes he has a lot to offer, but like so many men, I lack the confidence or perhaps the persistence it takes to meet the very best women America has to offer. This certainly was not the case in the Ukraine. I was absolutely amazed by the number of beautiful and quality women that attended your AFA socials. I found almost everyone to be friendly, approachable and genuinely interested in getting to know me. This experience built a confidence in me that has never appeared in my 43 years. I cannot thank you enough. It all started with you, and your responsiveness to all my initial questions and concerns. I made the leap based on my conversations with you. Best decision I ever made.

I've been on many dates the past two weeks and have narrowed my search down to three very beautiful and quality ladies with whom I will continue to communicate with upon arriving back in the states. I will undoubtedly return to the Ukraine soon to further develop these relationships or perhaps begin some new ones. In the end, I want to find that one special lady that I can call my wife.

I can't imagine ever wanting to go back to the traditional forms of dating I've grown accustomed to before finding AFA. I'm confident now that the woman of my dreams lives in the Ukraine and I will be reaching out to your office soon to discuss my next trip and how I can utilize your services again. It's truly been a pleasure dealing with a class organization.

The staff are supportive and cordial, the socials are entertaining,very well organized and girls are exeptional. and last but not least, the ladies by far outnumber the gentlemen guests. of cource because of good reasons for all your proffesionalism. The socials are unimaginable, very well organized and I have no doubt you all will continue the good work.

Warm Regards,

Experiencing Davao culture has been a highlight of my life....

Experiencing Davao culture has been a highlight of my life. The overall warmth and generosity of the Philippine people touched my heart and confirmed my view that your people are among the loveliest in all the world.

There are not sufficient words to support my feeling that Helen and her staff are one of the great teams in all of Davao, the Philippines and the world. The kindness, dedication and love shown amongst the staff models family. I am honored to have made such wonderful new friends. My heart has been forever touched.

I have never in my life experienced such a loving place....

I have never in my life experienced such a loving place. Davao is full of purity, love, joy, respect and the happiest place on Earth. This place is surreal and life changing at the same time. Helen is a Godsend and every single person I have met in Davao have been incredible. I have adopted the city in my heart and Davao will always own a big piece of my heart.

To God be the Glory

Thank you,

Sshhh Come on guys, don't tell everyone. Keep Quiet....


It's everything you would expect and more. Usually the guys who had a problem was the ones who were unrealistic about what women they felt they would be able to attract. These women aren't hard up to leave and most could care less what you have. They asked me about my life experience and how... I treated women, not what car did I drive. Women in the Ukraine are like no other women in the world. I know because I have looked everywhere for the right woman. I decided I would never settle for the best of the worst.And no to your question. I can find a woman here and could have been married. I have been proposed to by women here twice. The women are well educated, take pride in their appearance, intelligent, hard working, committed, and only want every other woman wants, the right partner they can commit to and be treated like a woman should be. Lots of TLC. They are all unique and beautiful. I went in December and I am going back after Easter to try and figure out which one will be my best fit. They have no idea I can make their life here like royalty. I can give them whatever they want and they would never have to work. They have one thing on their minds, being the best they can for me and taking good care of me. As far as the cost, nothing good is free. I wasted more money here trying to find one, only to find women worried only about how I could make their crappy life's better. Not one I would let even mow my lawn, much less marry and end up with half of what I worked my butt off to achieve. My advice is to get one before they are all gone.

It's John from Amarillo, Texas USA. Remember me?.


It's John from Amarillo, Texas USA. Remember me? I visited Costa Rica a month ago. As promised I am writing to thank you for all the great help you were to me while I was in Costa Rica. You are very efficient and professional! I had a great time meeting ladies and you were helpful in many other areas; advising this old "gringo" on the 'do's and dont's' of getting around there.

Please pass this email along to John Adams in Phoenix! I know John and he's always interested in hearing that his clients get excellent service from his staff!

Thank you again Gustavo! Espero verte otra vez!

Ten years ago in March 2005 I took my first and only AFA tour to Volgograd Russia

Dear Sirs,

Ten years ago in March 2005 I took my first and only AFA tour to Volgograd Russia. The reason I took only one tour was because I didn’t need a second one. On that tour I met and later that year married the love of my life. Later this year we plan to celebrate our 10th anniversary and I felt obligated to write and thank you for the service you provided a decade ago. I don’t know where my life would be if I had not took a chance, stepped out of my comfort zone and went on that tour. I know there would not be a seven year old that calls me daddy and changed my life for the better in more ways than I can count.

I have for the last ten years directed every single man I know towards your website – well every single ‘good’ man. I don’t know how many men have joined or gone on one of your tours but I try to show them with the example of my marriage how great life can be if you do something a little different. I let them know there is only one agency that I trust, only one agency that can deliver and only one website to go to. I even typed up a little slip of paper I carry in my wallet to hand out that simple says: AFA Tours,, Change Your Life Forever! I hope you don’t mind the free advertising.

I wish you the best of luck in continuing to grow your business. In my opinion it is the best business in America.

Thank You,

I think you have another success story for your company


I think you have another success story for your company. Unless something unforeseen happens I believe Tatiana and I will be very happy together. We met in November last year and I just got back from spending a week with her. We have talked about everything I can think of that would cause a problem for us and she even started looking into getting an Oklahoma cosmetology license, so I think this is a done deal. I just sent in the paperwork last week so we now have to wait. I just wanted to let you know and maybe I can help some more of your guys make the decision if you want. I am very happy now and I know nothing is for sure until it is done but with her wanting this as much as I do I don't know how we can fail. I just wanted to let you know because you have been a big help for me. Take care and I hope things are going well for you.

I have taken only one tour and that's was to Dominican Republic


I have taken only one tour and that's was to Dominican Republic and had the time of my life. Besides meeting very beautiful women and enjoying their company I met the other people in the group and we entertained each other with conversation about our escapades There was a mutual respect and comradery. The things that occur on this tour were laughable and if any man goes on a dating site it should be AFA. It gives a wouldwidevview of match making and the most enjoyable time of your life.

My Ukraine experience, and a new chapter in my life!!

It all began when I found A Foreign Affair, back on Thanksgiving Day, 2011. Actually, I never heard of the company, and didn't have any idea that there was such a company that actually existed, or that I felt comfortable with. All I knew was, I had an ongoing interest in Europe, and I wanted to have a personal experience with someone special. But I was having trouble with believing what I was reading. I found a a list of companies that matched what I had entered as my interests, and as I scanned each one, A Foreign Affair caught my eye. At this point, I wasn't expecting much, except the same old rederic I had seen in the past. As I viewed the contents of each website, I was intrigued by the information that was listed from AFA, as much of it was never mentioned on anything else I had seen. Still skeptacle, I began to verify the information listed with information from U. S. Government websites, and found that many of the facts listed on AFA's website actually was truthful. I decided to join, but without making any financial commitment, until I could verify more information. I even made some phone calls, and asked questions based on the information listed on the website. I was amazed to find out that everything I asked about, turned out to be exactly what I saw on the site. At this point, I became a bit more interested, and began to think that this company was the 'real deal', since all the facts were verifyable.
In February of 2012, I drove up to Nashville, Tennessee, to attend a seminar, which was presented by Bud Patterson, Vice President of A Foreign Affair. The presentation lasted about four hours, and there were others that had already gone through the program. There was one client who had his wife with him, of which he discovered through AFA, She was from Peru. Mr Patterson provided a lot of information about the company, which included the different programs a client could choose to get involved with. I went home that evening, and pondered over the information that I had gained from the seminar, and within a few days, I decided that I was going to move forward.
I decided that for me, the best direction to take, would be to go with the Executive Program, as I felt uncomfortable with attending a social setting, There was nothing wrong with it, it was just not right for me. The Executive Program provided more of a comforable setting, and provided unlimited assistance, should I need it along the way. I made the financial commitments that were needed, and made my way to Kiev, Ukraine, in mid March, 2013. I had a bit of a delay on the journey there, but that was due to Mother Nature, so that delayed my trip by two days, and thus spent the first days in Amsterdam. As you would expect, by the time I finally arrived in Kiev, I was a little anxious. I had an issue upon arriving at the airport, and had to deal with that, before leaving to head to my apartment, but the driver that waited for me, was very patient, and when I was ready, we were on our way.
I woke up after a very restful night's sleep, and in a very modest apartment (wish my own apartment was as nice as this one was) I was met by Anna, a translator with AFA, and we had lunch at a local restaurant. She explained all the 'dos, and don'ts', and explained what her roll would be. She became a very good friend, and I still keep in touch with her today.
During the course of the next six days, I had met seven ladies, all of whom I had written to, on the preceeding three months prior to my journey. I had a very good time meeting, and talking with each of them. By the end of the first week, I had a pretty good idea of whom I was more interested with. But before I would make my decision, I made a three hour journey to Poltava, and spent about five days there; discovering the city. learning a little bit of the history, and of course, meeting a couple of ladies there, I was very amazed by the charm displayed by the locals. Poltava is very quaint, and delightful. After the five days, I took the train back to Kiev, and spent my remaining time getting more involved with two ladies I was interested in. As a matter of fact, I even extended my trip, so I could take one of the ladies to see Yanni, I had known that he was going to perform in Kiev, but it was too late to change my plans. But by the time I was about to leave, I decided to stay the extra days anyway, so I could take her to the performance. Needless to say, she loved him! It made the extension of my stay worth it. I left the day afterward, and had already made plans to return in July, 2013, and I couldn't wait to get back.
On my second trip to Kiev, I spent part of my time with one of the ladies, and then the other, but by that time, I had already made my decision on who I was more happy with. And that is when we really got to know each other. We traveled to Yalta, but without Anna, as we wanted to go it alone, without a translator, It was great! We spent six days in Yalta, at a very nice hotel and sauna. We also took a day trip around the Crimea. Hopefully, we will be able to return, after the current issues have hopefully calmed down. The people of the area are very pleasent, and it's really a great place to retire as well. Just don't tell the world; as I prefer my privacy. I'm crossing my fingers that we can make that desire a reality some day.
I went back again at the end of November, 2013, and spent nine days with my girl. We did a lot, dispite the events taking place, which included a visit to the Titanic Exhibit. By this time, we are fully on our own, and doing great. We are learning each other's language, and having a great time. We also did some shopping as well. I was ready to pop the question, and had already purchased the ring four months earlier, when we traveled to Rimini, Italy, in June, 2014. We stayed in an apartment, which was only a block from the beach. We did more sightseeing, and shopping, but we made our own meals. This was to cut down on costs, and to really enjoy ourselves for what we would eventually be doing in our future. And on June 27, 2014, I proposed, and she accepted. Oh, I asked her the question in Russian, which was a little bit of a challenge, but that is what I wanted to do. It went well. She was quite amazed, and very pleased. I went home a very happy man.
So now it's time to get everything together for the Fiance Visa. It's a bit of work to get everything together, but it will be worth it, in the end. The process is underway, as of this writing, and I'm hoping that by some time in August, 2015, she will be given permission to enter the United States. I left again for Kiev, on December 27, 2014, to spend the holidays with her, and to meet more of her family, and learning all the traditions of the holidays in Ukraine. The trip included travel to Tbilisi, Georgia Republic, to visit another family member. It was a wonderful time spending the holidays in Ukraine, and something I'm looking forward to doing again, and again.
The people of Ukraine are very plesent, and even though the country is going through issues, life is still going on. I have seen things that you won't hear from the news media; things that would delightfully surprise you. The economy is rough right now, but there is still a lot of hope. I have a lot to learn, but the one thing I promised her family, and which I will keep my word about, we will return, again and again. Once we are a couple, officially, her family will be my family, and visa-versa. I will learn the language, the traditions, understand the history of the country, and enjoy the food (which I already do).
A Foreign Affair is a company you can put your complete trust in. You can trust John Adams. President of A Foreign Affair, and rest in the knowledge that the experience you are about to embark on (should you decide to do so), will be one that you will want to remember for a long time to come. But the important thing you have to remember is, you have to be sincere in your intentions. This is not a game. You need to take this experience with an open mind, and with honest intentions. The women are real, and so you have to be. A Foreign Affair goes to great pains to make sure that your experience will be rewarding, and hopefully successful in the end. If something unexpected arises, AFA will be there to assist you. You are not going to be left to your own defenses, ever.
A Foreign Affair has an 'A+' rating with the Better Business Bureau. This company has been around for twenty years, and has a proven track record, and complies with all state (of Arizona) and Federal laws. All you need to do is put your faith in AFA. I did, and I'm happy with my success. The next move is up to you. If you decide to take the experience, please be honest. John and his team at A Foreign Affair will do everything possible to reasonably assure a positive experience for you.

Just a note to say thanks for your service!!

Just a note to say thanks for your service ! I went to Kiev in September and met several nice Lady's from many professions. Victoria was my guide and did an excellent job. She had my best interest and safety at heart and took great care of me. I have kept in touch with one lady (Julia) by email and we want to be together. I called your office and got info about a fiancee visa and will send money to get the ball rolling in a couple of weeks. I plan on going back to Kiev in March and give Julia a ring.I would like to request Victoria as my translator , she is a great person and a asset to you company! Anna has been a great help to me here in the U.S. and I will keep both of you posted as my plans progress. thank s so much for your help , I had friends that have been skeptical but I tell them from experience that your company is one of honesty and integrity.

My experience with AFF was interesting and eye opening.

My experience with AFF was interesting and eye opening. I recommend everybody try it once. We started in Kiev with a social, but I didn’t really meet anyone that I was interested in. Then we went to Poltava! What a world of difference! The social was much nicer and the women were genuine in looking for love.

The most important thing to remember, is don’t give up. I met several women at the social, but they didn’t pan out for various reasons. For the next 2 days I went through the books looking, but everyone I was interested in, was working or out of town. On the last night of our stay, I again went looking in the profile books and came across one that interested me. The office girls contacted her and we met. Within 5 minutes, we felt like we had known each other for years. 3 hours later, my heart was won.

It took about a year to get everything together with the K1 visa. I prepared the paperwork my self. In October 2013 my Julia arrived. We married in November and today we continue to be happy.

Best wishes,

I was just recently on the AFA Odessa, Ukraine tour.


My name is Billie N. and I was just recently on the AFA Odessa, Ukraine tour. I wanted to send you an email to share my experience and to reach out to you. First off I want to let you know that you have a great staff that created a great experience for all. I had more time with your Odessa staff and I can tell you that Svetlana and Margarita are both great and went out of their way to help all the guys. All the interpreters and other staff were great as well.Â

Now on to our tour leader Anna. I had to start a new paragraph for her simply because she deserves it. There could not be a better tour leader or employee in your company. I can not imagine the tour without her. She is AMAZING!!! She is a tireless worker and absolutely worked her butt off for all of the guys on the tour. Everything from making calls, giving advice, setting up interpreters, and even staying late to make sure all of the guys were happy. She went way above and beyond on what I expected or could have even hoped for. She was there for absolutely anything that we needed whenever we needed it. She is a great example for all of your current and future tour leaders.

The 3 cities in the Odessa tour provided 3 different experiences. First in Odessa, I liked the venue and the atmosphere. It was a great experience. The only complaint that I would have in Odessa would be the volume of the music. It was a little too loud for conversation. I came out of that social being a bit hoarse from having to talk so loudly. There were areas you could go to have better conversation but most of the girls were downstairs where the music was really loud. Turn down the volume of the music there and it would be perfect. In Kherson, it was another great experience. The volume was much more pleasing and the venue once again was great. It was very easy to have conversation there and the layout was good.

Nikolaev was a different experience. There we tried the "speed dating" concept. This was met with mixed reviews from the guys. I tried to talk to most of the guys about this experience and here is what I found....the guys who enjoyed the experience were generally more shy than the ones who did not enjoy it as much. It seemed to really helped some of the more shy guys to open up and talk to the girls through their interpreter. For me, however, I found this to be the least enjoyable social. There seemed to be a lot of wasted time for me sitting at tables where I had no interest in anyone. It also provided many awkward moments where you ask for one girl's information at a table while other girls are just looking at you. Also by the time we finished the "speed dating" portion of the social there was not much time left for the rest of the social. I feel like it is a good idea to have ways to help the guys who are a bit more shy to open up because I can definitely see value in that. I just feel that can be accomplished without so much wasted time or awkward moments. My personal suggestion would be to either have a tour leader take the guys around the venue when they first arrive so that the guys can pick 5 or 6 tables that they would most like to visit or to have the tables arranged by specific criteria(age, children, hair color, ect...) so that the guys only have to visit the tables where there are girls that they would have a genuine interest in. Both of these ideas would eliminate the wasted time and should provide much longer for normal social activities. Another suggestion would to have each girl at the table to have an assigned number on her name sticker so that the guy can send the interpreter to get the girl's information as to avoid awkward moments(example...Table 6, Girl #3).

Another great experience on this tour besides the socials and dating opportunities was the trip to the orphanage in Kherson. It was a very humbling and rewarding experience. It was nice to be able to give back and I would like to thank you for that opportunity. Also I absolutely fell in love with the country and the people of Ukraine. The cities and people were so nice.Â

This tour was one of the best experiences of my life and I truly appreciate and respect your company and its mission. While I was on tour I took a lot of joy in helping some of the other guys with breaking out of their shells and even helping with some introductions. I was able to give them some advice as well. It made me feel good to help these other guys. Also the women of Ukraine are wonderful and very deserving of happiness so I would like to be able to help them and the guys find happiness together. I would be honored to help you in this mission in any capacity that you would see fit. Feel free to call me if you would like to talk to me more or have me elaborate on anything that I said.

Thanks again,

Billie N.

This letter is to thank you and your AFA colleagues...

Mr. Adams,

This letter is to thank you and your AFA colleagues for another great experience during my recent visit to Odessa.

As I am sure that you understand, at my age that is approaching 60 years old, it is difficult to find enjoyable experiences with women who will consider me to be a good companion and possible life partner. Your organization permits me to have these experiences, when few other options exist.

The local manager of your AFA Office in Odessa, Svetlana Nadolenko, provided wonderful service to me.

It was possible to meet almost all of the ladies on my "wish list" because of Svetlana's efforts. All of those ladies would be beyond my ability to meet in any other place.

I was fortunate to receive a gracious welcome at the times of introduction to many of these ladies. This was because the ladies on the AFA website become comfortable very quickly when they meet Svetlana. They seem to feel that Svetlana is a colleague and that she understands their needs and their situations in life. They seem to feel that Svetlana is acting to help them as well as the male clients whom she introduces to them.

There were multiple ladies who were initially not comfortable with me personally, but who gradually did develop a more favorable impression, after speaking with Svetlana. As the ladies visibly relax and become comfortable, it makes the introduction process much more enjoyable and less stressful for all involved.

Svetlana went beyond the regular limits of service on many occasions to help me. These included helping me with my appearance. She took me to a hair salon to get a much better hairstyle. She advised me about the best attire to wear to create a good impression on the ladies who I wanted most to impress. She helped to buy small gifts that I could give at the first or second date. One example involved buying some chocolates at a special store called Lviv Chocolates, which the lady had never visited, despite her having lived in Odessa for 41 years. Another example involved purchasing a cell phone with a good functional camera for another lady whose cell phone did not have a working camera function.

In summary, I am very grateful to you and your colleagues for allowing me to continue to find hope that I can develop a close relationship with a lady who can give color, warmth, and excitement to my life. I will certainly go back to Odessa in the Spring, when weather permits, to followup with two of the ladies whom Svetlana introduced me to. It also helps to have the new confidence that it is just a matter of time before one of the beautiful ladies on the AFA website begins to feel that I am special also.

From the moment that I decided to go to the August, 2014 Social in Cebu...


From the moment that I decided to go to the August, 2014 Social in Cebu, until the time that I returned, I had one of the best experiences that I have ever had. First, AFA in Phoenix was highly professional in making all arrangements, and in telling me all about the process (how it works, what to expect, how to make the most of my time in Cebu). I identified about 20 Ladies who I wanted to meet, and began writing to each of them. After a short while, I realized that I did not have chemistry with a few, and a few probably felt the same about me. But I eventually identified 9 who I wanted to invite to the Socials (7 came on Friday, and 2 came on Saturday). I met four of them before the Socials for dates, which is a great experience and I highly recommend. The Staff in AFA Cebu is simply the best. From the moment that I was met at the Cebu Mactan Airport by Luz (she took me to the Waterfront Hotel and stayed until I was fully checked in), through the help with the AFA Cebu Office (each Lady working there was super helpful, kind, sweet, and supportive), through the Tours that they took us on (Mary Grace is incredible), through the many functions (I sat with Jim Mathieu and his girlfriend at the Pool Party -- what a really great gentleman he is), I had a first rate experience. There were two orientation meetings, and numerous interactions to make sure that the men were fully aware of all details, and supported. And then there were the Socials. Simply unbelievable. For us 16 men, there were 115 women each evening. Beautiful, sweet, happy women. All perfectly dressed and made up. And all there for only one reason: to meet the man who will love them, marry them, and make a life with them. No one can really imagine how nice the experience is unless he goes. So to anyone reading my sincere and honest message, here it is: "buy a ticket, make a reservation, begin chatting with a few Ladies who you would like to meet, keep your mind open to all possibilities, and GO. Go. Go. Go." As Jim says over and over again, it works, it works, it works. As a doctor here in America, I am hoping to someday (soon) bring a sweet, kind, loving, gentle, tender, beautiful, special Lady back to America to live all of my life with. There are so many of these Ladies in Cebu. So go, guys. Go. I will be happy to speak to any of you. The AFA Office in Phoenix can put me in touch with you. So just let me know.

Like most men considering the idea of marrying a foreign bride...


Like most men considering the idea of marrying a foreign bride, I put off making the decision for over a year on whether or not I was serious enough to actually fly to a different continent and entirely different culture to take a chance on this seemingly risky venture. At some point I decided to go and quickly paid my down payment so as to lock myself in before changing my mind. The decision having been made and money paid out, there was a sense of relief that events were in motion and I was just a bystander. All things considered, this was one of the better decisions I have made in a long time. Touching down in Odessa and meeting up with my group and our group leaders only made me relax more because it was obvious that the men I was meeting had been down the same road as I had and we had enough in common just from our similar experiences and frustrations of being somewhat dissatisfied with the difficulties of finding traditionally minded women in post-feminism America. As well as finding out about some new and interesting places that our trip would take us, and discovering a country where the ladies seem to compete with each other to get our attention (a change from the usual mindset of American women where they pretend they don't even know you exist), my feeling that I had made a good move was confirmed even more with every passing day. What really set the vacation apart from another trip that you might take, where you just sit on a beach or something, were the socials which were presented by A Foreign Affair. They were an experience every guy should have if only just once. On the trip I took we had three socials. I later admitted to my new found buddies that during the first one I had been rather nervous. By the time the last one rolled around, I felt like I was so good at doing the meet and greet thing that I could have been the Maitre‘d. Each event was jam-packed with beautiful single women looking to meet eligible respectful gentlemen. If I have any criticism at all it is that there usually weren't quite enough guys because a lot of the ladies often sat there without anyone to talk to and seemed lonely or bored. I mean, these things are nothing if not male-centric! All you need to pack with you is a suit of clothes (dressing nice is a plus for the ladies) and an air of confidence. Almost all of the ladies were honest, sincere, and friendly. I am not a man that usually takes to dancing, but once I started, I couldn't stop. The memories that I brought home from the Ukraine may well last a lifetime. Although I did not meet my future wife on the trip I am pondering a return for another try. Even if no permanent long term relationship results are achieved, I can honestly say I enjoyed myself immensely and made a few friends along the way. If you are at all on the fence about giving a romance trip a try, I urge you to throw caution to the wind and attempt an adventure which could positively change your life forever. There are no guarantees in life, but A Foreign Affair certainly does their part to put all the elements in place that, if you bring a little initiative of your own, may help you meet the life partner you have always searched for.

Good luck.

This is Brian in ND again.

Hi Guys,

Hi Guys. This is Brian in ND again. If you want to go on a wonderful European vacation. You couldn't find one better than this. AFA is top shelf all the way. They have been going to the Ukraine for 19 years. They got it down. I want to talk about the beautiful women of the Ukraine. Let me tell you about what could be one of the best 5 minute stretches of my some what miserable life. Do you remember the blues brothers movie? They are gonna get the band back together and save the school, and Elwood says ( we are on a mission from God) Ok we are on the tour bus heading to the second social in Nikolaev. We are pumped. We know how much fun this is gonna be. Just imagine you are a Ukrainian woman. You were raised to have a husband, family and be a great wife. Now you learn 40% of you will never be married. Now you learn single American men are coming to your town to find a wife. Its crazy guys. Every table you walk by, 6 or more beautiful women with friendly eyes are begging you to sit with them. Women half your age are putting their phone numbers in your pocket. It will blow your mind. I got addicted. Holding a woman that beautiful on the dance floor. Cheek to cheek. A little kiss on the cheek. Tell her how beautiful she is. It will let endorphins in your brain go and you will become addicted like I am. I cant wait to get back. This will be the longest winter of my life. Ok we are on the bus. I tell the guys the only way I can understand why these women can be this beautiful is this. 3 thousand years before Christ God came down and said we gotta mix this up. So he gave Alexander the great luck and they took slaves. And it sucked but the races were mixing. Then the Romans did it, and mongles and so on. I said guys I think the Lord wants the races to mix. I think he made these women this beautiful so western men would get them and the races would mix. That's the only way I can explain why they are this beautiful. I said guys we are on a mission from God. The bus went nuts. Guys were slapping their legs and holding their stomachs. It was a great laugh. Guys its gotta be a act of God. You see the photos on this web site and you think there no way they gotta be photo shopped. Then you meet her and you will think she is 20% more beautiful in person. Kid you not. Anyway. Then the bus pulled in to the parking lot. I said guys lets show these lady a great time. The doors of the bus opened. I shot out headed for the night club. I don't know it but they're not letting the girls into the club. So about 130 of the most beautiful ladies on the planet earth are waiting in this room. Standing shoulder to shoulder. I come flying into the doorway and stop and 130 angels stop talking and turn and look at me. Guys it was a sight and feeling I will never forget. The guys came in behind me. It was a neat moment in our life's. Pure gold. Moments like that are waiting for you to. Lets go. Im going again July 2015. I don't see a better time to go.

I would love to see you there.

It has been a sincere pleasure to participate in the AFA tours to Ukraine.


It has been a sincere pleasure to participate in the AFA tours to Ukraine. I have been amazed at the warm welcome and availability of attractive Ukranian women in each city. It is actually difficult to decide which lady to invite out on dates and with whom to pursue a longer term relationship. This is a completely different experience than I, or most other men, have in the United States. Many of the other men tell me that they cannot wait to return to Ukraine again, after the AFA tour is over, for this reason. After the Social Events of the tour, I must discard several of the phone numbers of attractive and interesting ladies who I have met, because there is not sufficient time to meet all the ladies once again or to pursue communications with all of them after leaving Ukraine.

For many of the women, but not all, the appearance of the man appears to be less important than his personality and potential of being a good partner. I am 58 years old, with a moderate degree of extra weight, and without handsome qualities. Despite this, I have had the pleasure of attracting the attention of several very pretty women in Ukraine, who I feel would never give me any attention in the Social events for Singles in the United States. Each man on the tour who presents a friendly demeanor is very successful in meeting several nice women. However, it is very clear that the most beautiful ladies do select the more physically fit and younger men to give their attention to.

The AFA tour leaders appear to be very careful about ensuring that each American man has an adequate opportunity to meet numerous Ukranian ladies. The AFA tour leaders try to ensure that even shy men and men who are less than confident about their personal appearance will be able to have several dates on the tour.

Although going on the tour has the primary objective of meeting a special lady, it is also very interesting to see another culture and to visit places of historical interest. Ukraine has many cities on the tour schedule that offer very interesting cultural experiences as well as the social opportunities. For example, it was very pleasant to walk through the downtown area of a secondary city called Poltava, and to see many beautiful parks, flowers, and restored older buildings.

AFA organizes the tours so that there is very good support from translators at the Social Events and on the individual dates during the tour. However, it is very important that the man understands that the communication barrier will be a big issue in trying to develop a personal relationship with one of the ladies, after the tour ends. In my opinion, a man who is serious about develoing a relationship with a Ukranian woman must have a plan to help her to learn English. In my experience, about 10% to 20% of the ladies do speak English to at least a modest level. This percentage is greater among the younger women and in the bigger cities.

My experiences are very current. I have visited several cities with AFA in 2014, during the events that have received international press coverage. AFA has been very careful to manage the tour process so that no sense of danger to personal security in Ukraine has appeared to be necessary. I actually feel safer in many of the downtown areas of Ukranian cities than I do in the metro center of the large American cities that I live near or have visited.

Landing in Kharkov on a beautiful autumn day

John, Here is my Romance Tour Review:

Landing in Kharkov on a beautiful autumn day, I was eagerly anticipating my second Romance Tour with AFA. On the first night, the guys all met to enjoy some great Ukrainian food and to share some war stories from past tours. The first Social was very exciting. The Compass Club was the perfect venue for the 18 or so guys that went on our tour. About 150 beautiful Ukrainian women attended the social and the majority of them were very friendly and approachable. AFA spared no expense in providing food and champagne for all involved, most importantly the ladies who attended. I met at least 10 different ladies within the first half hour of the four hour social. I met beautiful ladies, got their emails and phone numbers and didn’t tarry, as the important thing to do was to meet and greet as many of these gorgeous women as possible. The atmosphere at all three socials (Kharkov, Poltava and Sumy) was very festive and exhilarating. Every guy wondered if he would meet the lady that he might spend the rest of his life with.

Following the socials, the guys all went to the “Hospitality Room” also known as the War Room the following day to set up dates with the favorite girls they met at the social, or that we had been writing to prior to the tour. The friendly Interpreters working for AFA were more than happy to take the lists of ladies that I wanted to date and set up dates for the afternoon and evening. Some of the guys went through the binders of ladies’ profiles, but most of them had already found the ladies they wanted to arrange dates with through AFA’s website prior to the tour. The dates were exciting as I took a lady to bowling, a local café, or even to a French comedy at a Kharkov movie theater (spoken in Ukrainian) Spending time with beautiful ladies that wouldn’t have given me the time of day in America was exciting and a huge ego boost, but you had to keep things in perspective. Poltava and Sumy were very friendly, historically significant towns. I enjoyed meeting the ladies in these two towns. The bus ride to these cities with the other guys on the tour gave us each time to reflect on the girls we met in Kharkov and what the girls in Poltava or Sumy may be like. The socials in these two towns were great and well attended. I think there were at least eight ladies to each guy in all three socials, which made it almost surreal compared to what we are used to back home. I think the most important lesson I learned on this romance tour was to make as many contacts as possible with both the ladies AND the guys on the tour. Now that I am back home in the U.S., I have been able to email some of the ladies I met on the tour. The fact that I had about four or five ladies that I met makes it nice as I can now decide which ones I’d like to come back to Ukraine and spend more quality time with. Most of the guys that I met on the tour were all super friendly and I’m still in contact with a few of them. Some of them have already planned to go back to Ukraine and I am also hoping to go back and visit some of the ladies I met on the tour.

This past October I made the trip to attend the tour


Helen the manager of the Davao office has been trying to get me to attend a tour there. This past October I made the trip to attend the tour and from the start it was a great experience. The hotel staff was great also from the time of arrival at the airport to check-in. Helen met with me on the first day and we went over my invite list and was able to add a lady at the last minute. The staff at the office was great and even set a date with lady later on the first day. My buddy is a person from the office was very helpful and when I told them of an idea I had they suggest that I get flowers for my invites that will be there. They also ask me who I wanted to have the first dance with this was a surprise for as this dance was before the start of the social. As we moved from table to table and if there was one of my invites at the table they would try their best to have me sit near or next to them. When my choice to do the paper dance with had to leave I ask my buddy to ask another person to be my partner. That person was my partner in the paper dance and we had a date on Saturday. At the social Helen and her staff make sure that you have fun and keep things moving so it’s possible to meet as many ladies as possible.

Thanks for a great time,

My input and experience regarding AFA Romance Tours, specifically to Cebu, Philippines…

Dear Bud Patterson,

My input and experience regarding AFA Romance Tours, specifically to Cebu, Philippines…GO! Just GO! Do not write ANY letters unless you have a seat on a plane! No substitute for being there, no real need to waist any money writing anyone…Romance Tour or Asian Club Tour, the key factor is; You Must Be There Physically! Arrive with a list of possibilities or sort through the profiles when you get there…but you have to get there!

When you have Plane Tickets. then if you are really compelled to do so, only write to a few women. Starting a letter with “I am coming to (Her city) on (Date)…I find your profile interesting maybe we could get to know each other a little before I arrive? That format will get a response, if she is genuinely interested… no lady that is serious about a relationship wants a pen-pal or e-mail buddy…THEY WANT TO SEE YOU, Touch You, Look into Your Eye’s and know you are real! Isn’t that what us GUYS WANT TOO? No letter can do what one actual meeting can accomplish.

I know because I wrote two women before I arrived on my tour. One of those women is now my Fiancée…we were engaged after our first meeting! Sometimes you write expecting her to be the one, and she is not. No Chemistry, nice lady but not your future. In my case the chemistry was WOW! The in person meeting could not have been a better meeting; it by far exceeded both her and my wildest expectations!

Both women (yes only two) that I corresponded with were over forty which was in my desired age group…what your preferred criteria may be is your criteria, you may eliminate the perfect woman for too strict of a requirement list …but stick to it and focus! Not easy to focus with over a hundred pretty ladies, and girls, with bright expectant brown eyes, and long black hair, all trying to get your attention! The socials are a whirlwind of fun games, laughter, talking and meeting with every lady! It is a lot to take in…keep notes and stay …focused! Your may actually find the woman of your dreams…I did.

One final note. Do not sell yourself or her short! Deciding on your future partner in life for the rest of your life is not an offhand decision. It takes time and turmoil of emotions for both of you. Get to know the woman, and let her know the man. Take as much time to do that as you possibly can…stay for the two week tour (or longer is possible) a week or ten days fly’s by entirely too fast.

This is Brian from North Dakota.

Hi Guys,

Hi Guys. This is Brian from North Dakota. I went on the sept. Odessa tour. I had such a great time that I now am now addicted to the Ukraine. I have never been addicted to anything before. I could tell you about how wonderful the hotel Londonskya in Odessa is. How much fun we had going to the dance bars. How AFA is top shelf all the way. I want to tell you about how beautiful the woman of Ukraine are. One of the best parts of the tour is talking to the guys over breakfast. One morning I said to a table of 5 guys. Guys I think if you took 50 American woman 25 to 40 years old and 50 Ukrainian woman the same age. You might have 1 calendar girl model on the American side but you would have 7 to 8 on the Ukrainian side. The guys went nuts. After a 10 minute discussion. We agreed you would have 14 to 15 on the Ukrainian side. No lie they are 15 times as beautiful as American women. For me the best treasure I discovered on the tour was the woman in the 33 to 40 age range. I think that in America and the Ukraine you can find 20 to 30 year olds that are beautiful, but they are not women. You find a truly beautiful 37 year old and that is one of the most beautiful woman on the planet earth. I think at each social there were 4 to 8 of then. Kid you not. They are truly one of the most beautiful woman in the history of man kind, If you see what a wonderful treasure this is you gotta go. Im going on the July 2015 tour. Lets do it. I don't see a better time to go. 5 million more women then men in this wonderful country. 40 percent of the woman will never be married. In America we teach our daughters. Get a good education. Go to collage and get a good job so she can stand on her own. She doesn't need a man. In the Ukraine they teach there daughters be a lady. Always be beautiful. Find a good husband and be a good wife and mother. That's what im looking for. A hard working good wife that wants to be taken care of. This is a moment in time guys.

Thanks guys

One of the best times of my life!!


One of the best times of my life!! Great trip. So much fun. Bud is such an awesome tour leader. He was also a lot of fun. And Anna V. helped me out many times, too, nudging me in the right direction, or introducing me to girls I liked at socials.
I think the hardest part of the trip, was choosing which amazing and beautiful woman to spend our limited time with. I met more women that I had chemistry with in one week, than I probably would in a year here in America.
Even though I met someone I like a whole lot, it is tempting to go again in the future just to have fun, hang out with Bud and Anna, and the other awesome people I met (Ken, Ron, Joe, David, Scott, Juan). It's crazy, but I had just as much fun hanging out with the guys, as I did with the gorgeous women. Of course, having a beautiful, classy, lady on your arm, makes everything else better.
It probably wouldn't be a bad idea in the future, to privately remind some of the guys of reality. A couple of the guys on the trip, should have probably just been grateful that such gorgeous girls were even talking to them!
Another idea, is to pass out a sheet at the end of the night to every girl at the social, with the name and picture of every guy on it. Then, have them put a check mark next to every guy they would like to see again. Or, better yet, a number from 1 to 10, of how interested they are in each guy. Then, use those results to arrange more successful dates the next day. I know this would be a large administrative and logistical undertaking, If I ever go again, I would even volunteer to do the work on something like this for free, because I think everyone may end up winning, both girls and guys, and AFA and affiliates. From a profitability standpoint, guys are going to be more willing to spend more money, over a longer time, on women who are very interested in them. This system may help some future couples find each other.

The main thing I want to say though, is...


Na Zdorovie, Chris

P.S. Feel free to call me to talk about any of this. As you can probably tell, I am a big fan of AFA, and of helping dudes finda the love.

In case you don't remember me...

Hello bud,

How are you doing? In case you don't remember me, I was on your Kiev/Poltava tour in November 2013, I was commicating with a lady in Poltava before the tour, and I finally meet her in Poltava back in November 2013 thanks to you and your organization, Tatiana and I where married on the beach in Jamacia on August 28, 2014. We are now in the process of her and her daughters immigration to Canada.

Thanks for your help

Overall I had a positive experience...


Overall I had a positive experience. the pace was a little fast for me but seemed to work well. The only thing that I think would improve my experience would have been if I had understood a little better the psychology and cultural nuances when dealing with Ukrainian Women and how they differed from my experience with American Women. I would recommend this tour to others and the strongest recommendation that I can give is that I will be returning to Sumy and if my present lady there does not work out will engage your local affiliates through you. I think this thing that I did on a lark could lead me to a happy life. Thanks you to all your staff for the help they provided. The only thing negative to say is that the socials became to loud at some points, I understand that this was to provide entertainment for the ladies, providing a quite place in the venue would help.

There isn't enough room to tell you what a wonderful time I had


there isn't enough room to tell you what a wonderful time I had. The new catch phrase is top shelf AFA is and was top shelf all the way. We had a blast the vacation of a life time my friend. I think that everything happens for a reason and having a man the caliber of Bud Paterson has to be a act of God. I don't know if you heard about my motivational speech but it very well could have been one of the greatest speeches in the history of man kind. And then the wonderful moment that followed was so wonderful that it was worth the price of the tour right there. I have lots to talk about. and am running out of room. I will send you more text in the future. THANKS AGAIN John it was top shelf all the way!

Thanks so much for a great Social in Thailand

Strange how things in our lives change.

Dear John Adams and Bud Patterson,

Strange how things in our lives change. Three years ago I sent you a resume wanting to work for you doing seminars and tours, two years ago I asked for your permission to include your company's name in my book. A request that you graciously granted.

Never did I think that I would be writing this email at that time. Yet here I sit in my rented townhouse in Mactan, Cebu, Philippines doing just that. My life this year has been at my lowest when my wife of 39 years passed away and at my highest when I finally met the lovely lady I found on your site in Cebu.

Marlyn was a lady that I though “well write her she probably won’t write you back anyway.” (At that time I was having zero success writing and emailing ladies in China and I was thinking I wanted to steer clear of the Philippines and the little girls of 18-25 who make a large percentage of the Philippines profiles.) I will be damned if she did not actually write me back! She wanted to know why any man would be interested in her …because she was OLD and over the hill at 42?

That was the beginning of several very honest and rather intimate letters in which we discussed so many things…(I wasn’t going to write any letterrs…I wrote her and one other woman because I was coming to Cebu for other reasons as well.) That developed into emails, and phone calls. I cannot thank Jim and the Cebu Staff enough for all their help and assistance! They were instrumental in making my and Marlyn’s relationship a success! Apparently NINE of the men on this social tour were also engaged before the end of the two weeks! I image the Cebu staff was also key in making those connections happen

Marlyn and I decided to meet before the social to eliminate distractions and that meeting was beyond anything she or I, had hoped for, or dreamed of. As I held her hands in mine as we talked over a cup of coffee her eyes were tearing up, I asked if she was alright? She said through teary eyes; “You are REAL! And so much more that I had dreamed!” I was thinking the very same thoughts! By the end of that cup of iced coffee we were both sure that we have a future together.

She and I are now engaged and working on her passport and the K-1 Visa process. I am staying here while she struggles through the red tape and bureaucracy. While doing so we are both becoming closer and developing a better understanding of each other. Yes, no matter what I say or try to explain, her life in Arizona will be nothing like it has been here in the Philippines and I will never again take so many things in my daily life in Arizona for granted. I know with my help she will adjust and we will overcome the culture shock.

If I can ever do anything for AFA, for John Adams, or Bud Patterson, please do not hesitate to ask. I will gladly provide referrals any info via email and I am open to be on your interviews or BLOGS when I return to Phoenix. That I hope will happen by February 1, 2015 if I do not need to return prior for K-1 Visa reasons or a crisis at home.

Thanks again for being a company that is designed to lose their clients by making the clients dreams come true!

We will start the K-1 Tuesday…thanks for making dreams come true.

All The Best,

Robert M. and Marlyn O.

AFA may not have the selection of women other sites have,but you have honesty...

Hello Anna how are you doing?

I'm just left Max and the new girl Oksana,Olga was kinda a bust,well I think she just wanted some cash,I really think the reason she did not want English lessons from Max is when he teaches I send the money to AFA,she just wanted the money sent to her to pocket the money,trust me she wasn't learning English ...I will tell you about the new girl but first I would like to write some about my experience ... Anna,I will admit I wanted to see more girls on your website,so I started using other sites.Well I could make this so long and boring and name the sites but you would lose sight of the reason I am writing you. I would just like to write,that AFA may not have the selection of women other sites have,but you have honesty on your side...I do not know if this matters,but you told me many months ago Olga was from another company,I believe this to be true and the Anna in Odessa did not get to interview her for the site, Anna is quite different but I think her and Max have a lot of passion for their jobs.They really want you to find someone,and this is what AFA is all about,the other sites I used just wanted to give them money,they set me up with someone that was beautiful,and way to young,someone that had no intention of getting married just a easy way for them to make money.. I guess I'm just trying to write you don't find company's like AFA in this business, I have found all but you are scams... Anna has known me for a while and suggested I go out with this girl Oksana, what a treat she is so kind, humble and honest, I was so taken by her,so many thanks go out to Anna for helping in getting a date with her....Max's has been translating for us,and he makes me feel,well as if he was not even in the room with us,i have used translators with other sites and it seems like ,well come on dude lets just go to expensive places,do things they want to do but the expensive dishes,Anna Max will ask permission just to order something to drink...I'm just saying no matter what happens with Oksana and I your Anna and Max's has made my trip fantastic,what a good team you have here.....I will call you when I get back please say Hi to Bud and John for me and tell them to keep up the honesty and integrity,it's what sets you above the other agency's....

keep smiling,

Well to say the least am enjoying the Cebu tour

Dear John and Bud,

Well to say the least am enjoying the Cebu tour. Arriving early to meet this lovely lady was a very good idea! Marlyn and I were engaged by the end of our first coffee date….damned intense coffee date… or the girl at the coffee stand slipped us a love potion! Obviously we met each others expectations. She agreed we would spend more time together if she stayed with me at the Waterfront in Cebu City. When she got to the room she was nervous and I was smart enough to understand why. I made it very clear that sex was NOT a condition…Makiing Love would only happen when she was ready! she was so touched she cried…but with a smile like I had never seen…

We will start the K-1 Tuesday…thanks for making dreams come true.

All the best,

Robert and Marlyn

I have just returned from my recent Euro Club visit to Kiev.


I have just returned from my recent Euro Club visit to Kiev. That was a great experience. This letter is to ensure that you know how wonderful the service of Anna V. was in Kiev.
Anna made sure that each day was full of dates with wonderful ladies. She also made the ladies feel very comfortable with the situation. Making the ladies feel comfortable is big challenge when they realize that I am meeting with many other ladies simultaneously.
As you know, Anna V. also served as the tour group leader for the trip to Mariupol and Lugansk in mid-April. She provided wonderful assistance during that period as well.
Anna S. in Phoenix was also great in helping me to arrange this trip.

Thank you to Anna V., to Anna S. in Phoenix, and to your staff for a wondeful trip.

My May 2014 tour experience to Chongqing, China


Your staff in Chongqing went above and beyond to provide a great tour experience. The socials were well-attended. The sight-seeing tour was as authentic as it gets. The manager made it a point to be available and asked the question "Is there anything that you need?" on more than one occasion. I met a wonderful lady. I also had an enjoyable vacation in a place that I would have had a difficult time visiting without the support that AFA provided.

Thanks for your help,

This was the best tour I have had from AFA,


I attended last year's "romance" tour in Chongqing, and was very happy with the results. This was the best tour I have had from AFA, the most successful in terms of meeting women with strong and serious intentions towards marriage and family. The manager in Chongqing, Mr. Yuan, was the most service-oriented and customer-focused manager I have ever had on a tour. He was always available, and usually proactive in finding and fulfilling the needs and desires of his clients.

I met my fiancee and after completing the USA K1 visa process she joined me in Chicago last month, and we will soon be married! We are very excited and happy about our new life together! Feel free to use me as a reference, for either the women or the men on this year's tour; my best wishes for all of them!

Despite very concerning external events,


Thank you very much for the wonderful experience on the tour to Mariupol and Lugansk. Despite very concerning external events, I and the other tour members had a great time. All the tour members I spoke with, were very glad that they took the tour. We tour members were almost unanimously grateful for the many memorable experiences and opportunities to pursue future personal relationships. This very positive experience is very much due to your tour leaders, Joe and Anna, the manager of your Kiev office. It was very clear that Joe and Anna were doing everything possible to maintain safety for the tour members in the face of external events that changed daily. Also, Joe and Anna did everything possible to allow myself and the other tour members to individually meet with as many ladies as possible. The tour members who I spoke with, as well as myself, will be very interested in future tour opportunities with AFA, due to this very positive experience.

Apologies for getting back to you so late.....


Apologies for getting back to you so late. I will put on paper what I had shared with you telephonically on my trip to Lima Peru. I had an awesome time, was way more than I had expected. There were about 100 girls at each social and eight of us guys, need I say more. The bonus to this trip are the guys I met on this tour. Just like John says in his videos, breakfast time is the time us guys looked forward to. Listen to the stories of the dates the night before and the dates coming up that day. I still keep in touch with a couple of them.

In closing I will say as one of the girls told me in Lima "What happens in Peru stays in Peru".

I will definitely be going on a tour again this year, I'm just having difficulty on choosing where to go.

I am writing this to express my sincere gratitude to Helen and her staff....

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this to express my sincere gratitude to Helen and her staff for all they have done to make my experience in the Philippines not only pleasant but extremely successful. I cannot begin to tell you the kindness and professionalism of Helen and her staff.

I attended a group tour to Davao in March of 2013. I had been writing one particular woman and she seemed like a kind and genuine person. So I decided to take a chance a travel there on one of the tours offered by AFA. Upon arrival I was immediately impressed by the attention we were given by Helen and her staff.

Well I am happy to announce that the trip was everything I hoped it would be and more. I met the love of my life. Ms. Evelyn Dalupere. I fell head over heels for Evelyn and I felt she had the same feelings for me. I decided to ask for Evelyn’s hand in marriage. Being a guy, I was not sure about the best way to propose so that it would be romantic and memorable. Not to worry. Helen and her staff assisted me every step of the way. We had a table poolside at the Marco Polo Hotel with rose pedals leading to our table. We had a wonderful dinner and when desert came there was a ring on top of Evelyn’s desert choice. Needles to say she was taken off guard momentarily but as she realized what it was I immediately asked if she would do me the honor of becoming my wife. To my joy and amazement she said “YES”.

You would think that would be the end of Helen and her staffs involvement in our love journey but that wasn’t the case. Helen assisted Evelyn with her paperwork and photo’s for our petition for a fiancé visa. She even accepted long distance charges to her personal cell phone to assist me with my questions and concerns.

While there were dozens of attendees at the tour Helen made us feel as if we were the only couple there with the amount of personal attention we received. I want to sincerely thank Helen and her staff for everything they did for us. I am happy to announce that our Fiancé Visa request has been approved and the National Visa Center is forwarding the approved visa petition to the U.S. Embassy or the Consulate in Manila.

Oh, one other thing that I think needs to be mentioned. I went back to Davao in November to see my darling Evelyn. Helen invited us to her office and gave us some excellent advice. Then to our amazement, invited us to her residence for the Manny Pacquiao fight and the most amazing buffet of food that you could imagine. She even arranged my transportation to the airport.

Thank you Helen and thank your wonderful staff for all you have done to make this experience the most memorable and productive (engaged to Evelyn) that I could imagine.

So to ask her to go for a event the next day. Otherwise I might of miss the chance to meet my fiancée Evangeline. I believe that it was a divine hand and great people that made this happen.

Just a note to thank you for an excellent tour...

Dear Ken and John,

Just a note to thank you for an excellent tour that you organized for our group in Santiago, D.R. I think I speak on behalf our entire group to say that your entire staff were most friendly, efficient, professional, and accomodating in every way. Every detail was accounted for from the initial airport pick up, to providing us detailed lists for the two socials, and finally seeing us back off to airport. Gustavo came to our hotel each morning to greet our group and he individually attended to each and every concern of our group, to make everyone very comfortable and ensure the overall tour was most enjoyable. Your office manager Yulai met with us every day and we were all very impressed that she even came to our hotel at night on her own time to help translate for our group. The translators were outstanding and of great help to all. I would highly recommend your agency in Santiago, they are deserving of praise and we would not hesitate to return.

With best regards and we are hoping to take another tour soon!

I Just wanted to give you some feedback on the May 23 to June 5 tour to Chongqing...

Hi John,

I Just wanted to give you some feedback on the May 23 to June 5 tour to Chongqing that I just returned from. Unlike the Ukraine tours it was held in a brightly lit room with soft music which made communication very easy. I appreciate that a loud party may attract more girls but this environment was much, much better for getting to know people. We all had our own translators and we each rotated from table to table and talked with every girl who was there. The girls who turned up were genuine, honest and in no way did they want to take advantage of us. Of the girls I dated I always offered taxi money, gifts and expensive meals however they preferred to show me traditional places that were very affordable, often gave me small gifts and taxi money was always refused. I was told that many of the girls at the social were not poor, but actually wealthy with businesses and their own real estate. A few girls had even caught flights from distant towns just to attend the social. In my opinion the socials and invitation list was organized very well.

The tour manager, Yuan was new to managing tour groups however I think he did a very good job. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed, he was accessible, easy to contact and gave good advice on the city, its attractions and things to do. I was most impressed that while we were in his office looking at profiles he was able to give additional information about the girls as he seemed to know most of them. There were only one or two girls that he said he did not know much more about, but he still knew details about their profiles without looking at them. He joined us for breakfast each morning. As I was there for the full tour I said he was always welcome to join me, but it was not necessary as I often enjoyed breakfast in one of the gardens on my own or occasionally outside the hotel. He always called me a few times each day to make sure I had everything I needed and was doing alright. The only additional recommendation I would make to the office is that on the Ukraine tours they always had a printed copy of girls and their profiles so you could look through a book. The profiles were only on the computer. Apart from this it was a very clean and pleasant environment (with a spectacular view of the city I might add.) I would also like to mention that Yuen noted my birthday fell on May 26th which was the same day as the second social. He organized a huge cake wishing me a happy birthday which was a very present surprise.

There was apparently a policy of no dating the translators unlike the Ukraine tours where it happens often. I spent a lot of time with these girls and they are real assets to AFA and should be treated as such. If travelling to China I would make sure I visited Chongqing so I could see these girls again and catch up. Of note, my translator Wendy, at my request took me to an animal shelter that took in homeless dogs. Her friend drove us out there, we bought a large box of dog snacks and I was able to make a donation to the shelter. Bud Paterson told me that AFA made charitable donations in the Ukraine when we did a tour. Last year in Kiev, Poltava and Sumy we donated about $2500 (of which AFA matched our donations so it was actually $5000) to orphanages and children’s hospitals. I was told this was not normally done on Asian tours which I think is a bit of a shame as it is a good policy. I also spent time with Apple after Terry left as she was his translator. We got along very well as friends and because of the no personal contact policy I hired Apple for about $90 for the day and we got our hair shampooed, foot massages, did some shopping, went to the movies to see Oblivion (which I highly recommend you see – awesome!), and had a great dinner at a traditional Beijing style restaurant. I can honestly say it was one of the best days of my tour. I understand the need for a working relationship between translators and clients, but policy or not I choose my own friends and relationships even if they work for AFA.

Overall I am very happy with the tour and had a great time. I felt very safe at all times, even after a few drinks at the local bar with short walks back to the hotel late at night. The people are friendly, very helpful and always happy to assist tourists. I can think of several small incidents on my Ukraine travels in most cities where I have been left feeling like I have been scammed or taken advantage of, but not in Chongqing. I would recommend keeping this city as a tour destination and have suggested it to a few friends from previous tours I have been on, and am already looking at future tours with AFA in Asia because of my experience in Chongqing. I would be grateful if you could pass my thanks onto the staff for all their assistance during this trip and I look forward to travelling again with AFA.

Kind wishes always,

Jason B..

I want to complement Gustavo the tour leader...


I just got back from San Jose Costa Rica. I want to complement Gustavo the tour leader. He is incredible. He worked hard to ensure that all the guys had a good time and plenty of contacts with women while we were there. I call him a good friend and without his extraordinary hard work the trip would not have been successful.

Please give him an "Ata Boy" and my thanks.

I will take the opportunity you have provided with this survey to tell you what you already must know.


I cannot simply describe what a great job Bud and Anna did on this tour. It would be insufficient. My impression of them both is that they are not doing a job; what they "do" during each day of the tour is live in the passion of the work of your organization. It is unique. Anyone running a company dreams of having it filled with people like this.

If you need any more feedback please feel free to give me a call.

Best regards,


I thought I'd share with you the good news

Hello John & Tanya,

I thought I'd share with you the good news that I finally met the lady of my dreams! My fiance Natalia is from Ul'yanovsk, Russia. Although we met through another online site, I never would have gotten started on this journey without that first AFA tour in 2004. Natalia and I started corresponding just over a year ago. Believe it or not, I had nearly given up hope and she initiated our correspondence! After writing & skype for six months, I visited her during the 4th of July holiday last summer and we got engaged right away! I knew she was the right one from the moment we met, and lucky for me, the feeling was mutual.

A few weeks ago we reached the "NOA2" stage on her visa and we hope to get her interview scheduled in the next month. We will get married this spring at the soonest possible date.

I have several relatives in Phoenix and still visit Tucson from time to time for work, so I hope we will have a chance to meet you for lunch or dinner someday in the future when we visit the area.

By Far One Of The Top Highlights Of My Life!

Ms. Helen (Mom Helen),

I can't sing your praises enough! The skillful facilitation of such an event by you and your amazing, extraordinary and warm staff was second to none. I was extremely impressed with how flawless things flowed from beginning to end. The patients that you and your staff exhibited was superb, truly a comfort to the group of men that I accompanied on the tour. The time I spent there in Davao March 14-20, 2013 with you, your staff and over 200 beautiful Filipina women has and will continue to impact my life from that day forward. The experience is ever present on my mind. My buddy Lenj (I hope I spelled her name correctly) was superb. If I didn't find my life partner during this tour, I want her as my buddy when I return for the next one. I do believe that I found who I was looking for, but time will tell if she has found what she is looking for. One thing I know for sure is that there is a woman in Davao that is ready for the deluge of love and affection that I have to offer, and that she is offering too.

This experience was truly overwhelming! One of the best investments I ever made in myself, in my life and its quality! Thank you for providing such a powerful life changing service. You and your staff are impacting the future of so many people in a profoundly positive way that your name and deeds will live on for generations. I will be in contact with you and your staff as I pursue my goal, either for assistance with wedding and visa or with my continual such. You know what, y'all fill like family!

Yes, I met several wonderful people

Yes, I met several wonderful people. It was much better than I expected. I think I have found someone special in Poltava, but we will see how communication goes. Elena in your Poltava office has been wonderful, going above and beyond for me. She took me shopping for flowers on Woman's Day and showed me around. That was huge for me because of the communication issues I faced. Thanks Again for a great vacation! It was my first time overseas!

I appreciate your apology more than you can know

Bud and John:

I appreciate your apology more than you can know regarding direct involvement in my finding a sole mate. The fact you had John contacted me when I was freezing my rear off in Kiev was especially appreciated. I met a special lady on my own, but only for the fact that I felt comfortable being in Kiev in the first place because of AFA I would never have met her. Who cares how? I was a little more free-spirited because of you guys! The point is that you and what you and AFA stand for made it happen! Like I told John I am very sociable, and as he joked I'm not an ogre either, which I took to heart and he helped to put my skills to the test.

What you do is incredible! There is no measure to what individuals will do, but there is a measure to what someone seeking true love will do. Following what advice you and AFA offer will prove more than beneficial to anyone who heads your advice! Thanks Bud, I love your book!

Bud, you offer amazing blogs also! Thank you!!!!

I have a challenge though!

Think about what a "Mad World" that Gary Joules presents in his rendition of the' Tears for Fears' song. I think you will find an interesting perspective as a result, especially when he says, "expand your world" at the end. This not only relates to ending needless depression of those seeking a loved one that AFA can assist with introducing a solution, but also it points out how love heals with respect to AFA's efforts to help orphans in Ukraine.

I've attached happy photos of me with someone I would never have met had it not been for AFA, Bud, John, Bob , Anna, etc., and the courage they provided me to explore my options to find a true soul mate. I appreciate the opportunity to see if she and I are right for one another!

Thank you!!!

Overall the tour was everything that I expected. Some issues of course came up but nothing that wasn't addressed professionally and timely. The socials were fantastic. The staff was great especially Mary Grace (Mammasan). I would recommend this tour to anyone with the same goals. Now if I could just expedite the K1 visa process all would be great.

I wanted to write about my experince on the Ukraine/Cebu tour

I wanted to write about my experince on the Ukraine tour and my tour to Cebu,Philippines. First let me say that both AFA staffs on both of those tours were really helpful and polite with my needs for the tours, Then let me say that on both tours I was able to not only meet several of the ladies I had written letters too but also other woman at the socials and in my opinion there were attractive ladies at both tours and to be Honest one of the hardest things about the whole process is getting to the point of choosing one young lady to pursue a relationship with out of all the beautiful women. Now for me beyond the beauty it is all about Chemistry and finding the one who clicks with you and of course you must click for her as well. I exchanged personal Info with some ladies in both the Ukraine and Cebu and I still am writing and skyping with some of them and now I feel like I am going back to Cebu in June to meet one young ladies family and see what may happen! The one piece of advice I can give is not to go on a tour with to high of Expectations and just let it all happen naturally and it will, and the young lady I am going back to Cebu in June to see was not one of the girls I had been writing, I just met her at the social and it just got better and better. The bottom line is this, I bought the tours and made it happen and having the AFA staff waiting to help you when you arrive is a HUGE advantage! Guys the money you will spend can be made back, the possible relationship you could have is priceless! Be positive, open your Heart and make it happen

Good Day John,

I saw the National Geographic Channel show and found it to be very informative. I went to Costa Rica in 2010 myself, it was good to see another country. Michael

I watched the Bachelors Abroad show tonight here in Kansas City


I watched the Bachelors Abroad show tonight here in Kansas City. Thanks for the email reminder. I think it is a big hit, and it was nicely directed and put together well! It had great diversity and honesty with the three men you chose for interviews. They were all three very different men in many ways to give a nice cross section of American men looking for the same thing in a life partner. And you did a very nice job of narrating and interviewing these men (Joe, Bob, and Bill), and you described the search process with a lot of truth and plain honesty that there will be the good, the bad and the ugly.

I very much liked your commentary about what you think of each of the three men's progress and what may be holding them back or how they are moving forward. You talked about their past, their personalities and the progress you think they are making and what they need to do perhaps to improve. It is a delicate matter isn't it? You and Bud must feel like they are all your children right? The show was good in also getting the men's own opinions in their interviews how they think they are doing. That is a very nice touch for a democratic wide view on both sides. This is what men have to do is to learn from each other and to interact, and to learn from you and the other tour leaders. The learning can sometimes be fun and sometimes be painful, but always necessary! Learning should never stop in this way but the "effort" should never stop either. Just as you said in the show, it takes a lot of hard work, a lot of time, a lot of money, commitment, trips, meeting and dating the girls, and yes some luck too. It takes a lot of stuff. And it takes some failures too. It all plays a role. All of these put together I call "Effort". The "effort" is the only thing that can make it possible with the right girl!

Great idea to go on NG.....


The show was peppered with a good dose of reality and examples of what not to do. As soon as I get my youngest daughter off to college, I'm going. In the mean time, I want to thank you for all of the wonderful resources you offer to prepare.

The experience that we all shared was one of the highlights of my life....

The experience that we all shared was one of the highlights of my life and definitely of 2012! It was my pleasure and privilege to share the road with such gentlemen! I know that I will never see dating the same way again. That was actually fun!!!! It was a true pleasure to share stories of all the amazing ladies we met at breakfast every morning and sometimes at drinks the night after. I learned so much from all of you that I THOUGHT I already knew!!!

I truly believe that 2013 will be an even better year than 2012 as we learn and apply the experiences we have all shared. I hope that all of you took away as much as I did in experience, perspective and friendship! I know that the ladies of Ukraine blessed me with their beauty, candor and friendliness and I hope to experience much more of that in 2013.

Happy New Year to you all!!!

How are you?

My name is Juvenal G.
I like to thank you all of you for everything I experience in this trip to Odessa, Nikoleav and kherson.
I am very happy to had do it the tour. So. Thank you.

I hope if I can get a copy of the video and pictures of the social. Before I went to the tour many people tell me if I was crazy (insane). So now I want to let them know that is real. I want to let them see my pictures an video where I was in the social very happy. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of my own, because I lost my camera, I hope you can send me copy of my pictures.

Thank you all of you and I will go with you to another tour I hope soon.

Having so many women to talk to at once is....

Odessa Tour Dec. 2012

The tour was a total blast. It was very overwhelming actually, the socials. Having so many women to talk to at once is definitely something I was not used to. But the hotel was top notch, and all the staff members were polite,helpful, and courteous. If it doesn't work out with the girl I am dating now because of the social, I would certainly go on another one!

Thanks guys, the tour was totally awesome!

I just wanted to drop you both a line of the fantastic time I had....

Greetings John and Bud,

I just wanted to drop you both a line of the fantastic time I had on the recent Odessa tour! What a superb and unique service that your company provides. I have never had so little sleep and so much fun! I always felt well taken care of by Bud, Max and the rest of the staff. I met a special lady at the Kherson social and things are progressing nicely, and at a very fast pace. Bud hummed the wedding march song as my girl and I left the social. What a genius Bud is. Ha. I realize a million things can go wrong and only one thing can go right but i still had a fantastic time.

Thanks to you all.

Best regards,

Thanks so much for your personal involvement in my Euro Club trip to Kharkov.

Hi John,

I really appreciate the extra effort that you exerted to make sure that my visit was successful and enjoyable. Over a period of four days I met eight wonderful ladies who were beautiful, intelligent and articulate. There are two, in particular, with whom I will continue to communicate, and hope to get to know better: Natalia is absolutely adorable, she has the same name as my favorite actress Natalie Wood, and both her mother and grandmother were also named Natalia. And Irina is "movie star" stunning.
Sometimes a lady does not look as good in person as she does in her pictures. But Irina, who looks lovely in her photos, absolutely takes your breath away when you meet her in person. She really does belong on a magazine cover or in the movies.

Also, "kudos" to Andre and Svetlana and my translator Irina who did a marvelous job as both an interpreter and adviser.

In summary, John, I have to say that Euro Club, like all of your tours and services, is a terrific value. And I would like to say that if any potential clients would like to hear a reference or an endorsement, then please feel free to provide my contact information to them. I would be happy to "sing the praises" of A Foreign Affair to anyone who is willing to listen.

Thanks again, John, and best of luck in all of your upcoming endeavors!

Warm regards,
Tom K.

Bud you the MAN!!!!

I just wanted to say thank you. This was the most fun I have had in the last ten years. You and your staff were so professional and helpful which made the trip a great success for me and the other travelers. I look forward to many more adventures with your company and especially if you are the group leader. Anna was tremendous and everything was planned so perfectly and executed flawlessly. Your professionalism and genuine concerned for the happiness and wellbeing of the tour participants was truly amazing. I just wish I could say more but something's just cannot be put in words.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart for everything and wish you great success in the future.

This is Jeff from the August tour group (I was the one Australian member).

Just wanted to send you a mail to say hi and also to thank you and all your staff for the wonderful job you did during the tour. Before going I really wasn't sure what to expect but I had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and helped me relax and enjoy the experience. Special thanks to Erlisa, Angel and Irish who all helped me a lot and kept me entertained.

For me personally I enjoyed the socials and also the wine bar night and pool party were both great additions to allow me to relax and spend time with a girl and also get to know some of the other guys on the tour.

I had a chance to meet a few girls and spend some quality time with one girl in particular so will see if anything eventuates there. Well after 2 weeks back I can definitely say I am missing Cebu and intend to visit again hopefully later this year so will be in contact about that.

I heard a number of the guys got engaged which is great to hear, I suppose from your perspective that helps make it a very successful tour and shows that what you're doing is working.

Best Regards

I felt compelled to tell you what a fantastic trip I had to Cebu

Hello John,

I felt compelled to tell you what a fantastic trip I had to Cebu and what smashing parties the two socials were for me.
These are the parties I was signing up for in Medellin 2010. Absolutely a blast!!

Thank you for without question, the best parties I have ever been a part of. You have a real gem in your Cebu operation with a staff headed up by Jim of pure gold. They are attentive, truly care about all the guys success in meeting the girls they are interested in, work tirelessly to improve the client experience and always, somehow, manage to say hello with a smile.
The ladies are exceptionally beautiful-I don't know why I ever strayed away from Asian women and their naturally exotic looks and bright personalities.
I would like to bend your ear for 5 minutes one of these days with a suggestion for placement of Phillipine Weekly back onto your home page with a direct link. PW brought the girls to life for me and Helen and Jim's idea of weekly videos is genius as gives us guys a glimpse into their actual lives. We see them as the are today instead of only still photo shots.
Again, thank you John for a life changing experience as I met many ladies I am interested in for the future.

Cordially yours,

You have to be the best tour guide, organizer, professional individual I have ever met.

Dear Anna

You have to be the best tour guide, organizer, professional individual I have ever met.

You made this tour a great success for myself and fellow travelers. You were such a great help to me on this trip and without your help I certainly would not have had the wonderful time and experiences that this trip brought me. Your professional appearance, knowledge and kind personality is a great asset to your company. It was a true pleasure to meet you, AFA is truly lucky to have such a person working for them. I hope to see you again on future tours. You were a person that could be trusted and counted on for assistance 24/7 during the trip.

Thank you again for all you did and I believe I can say for everyone on the trip we could not have had a better person along than you.

Having returned from the Kiev July tour

Good day to you

Having returned from the Kiev July tour I wanted to take this time to say Thank You.

Once again your company has shown why you are number one. Even with the problems this tour faced, they were handled by Helen in your Kiev office with real concern that above all else my tour would be enjoyable. Ever ready to help, is how I would describe Helen and her crew of professionals at your Kiev office. The last time I was in Kiev, your Kiev office was in the Rus hotel it's a comfort to know you were able to find such caring people to run new office location

Thank you again,

John.....hello, how are you?

Watched the show this evening and figured I send you a quick note.

Well, it is basically a done deal with Vika. I contacted Maria Jones and Vika has already completed all of her documentation, translation, and notarization. I did not push this, John. She initiated everything. And would you believe this? We Skype every day during my lunchtime, which is when she gets home from work. Three or four nights per week we Skype 9 or 10 pm my time as Vika wakes up 4 or 5 am to speak with me before she goes to work. We Skype all weekend long. Like school children, basically. We have Skyped every day since my return to USA except two days when Vika visited her family. Every day, John !!! But it is kind of fun.

Of course who knows what might happen, but I feel comfortable with you as you know, and I can truthfully say to you that I cannot see our relationship ending in a disappointing fashion. We get along way too well. Of course I have you to thank for all of this. I truly am grateful. And of course, if I can ever do anything for you or your company in any way possible, by all means please do not hesitate to contact me.

speak to some of the other tour members occasionally. Bill, Joe from Canada, Mike, and Joe. Glad to communicate with all of them. This entire process has been a great experience, and I am eternally grateful to you.

Once again, I extend my warmest wishes to you. Be happy. Be well.

Just want to say thanks again! I am glad I am in Poltava. The office here is very good at staying on top of everything. And fulfilling my requests. Also they are taking good care of my brother since he will be transported by driver back to Kiev when I go for my early morning flight out of Kiev. He will need to meet someone in the early am in Kiev to get his apartment and Natalia tells me one of the girls will go to make sure he gets into his apartment.

So far I found two nice girls and will be back in may to Poltava. Whatever you do......don't close the Poltava office. There are way too many nice ladies here. Not one girl has tried to extort me or take me to an expensive place.

Hi John, Thanks for the invitation.

We would be the perfect AFA couple for this show. I met my Barranquilla Beauty in 2008. We dated for 3 years, applied for a visa, then got married in Salt Lake City on December 18th, 2010. My wife Karen has her green card and we just celebrated our first anniversary. WE COULDN"T BE HAPPIER!

It gets even better. Her sister Ingrid recently met the love of her life through AFA and is now engaged to a great guy from Minnesota. They are in the visa process and plan to get married around December of this year.

Like a lot of American gentlemen my age, I had trouble finding romance here in the states. I tried just about every matchmaking service there is, but nothing worked. Women under 50 wouldn't give me a second look. Then I heard about AFA and my world changed forever. At age 57, I discovered the fountain of youth in Colombia, a beautiful 24 year old virgin with a heart of gold. I learned Spanish, wrote love songs for her and we spent many wonderful nights together on the beaches of Cartagena.

I am forever indebted to you. I found my true love through AFA, a beautiful woman who loves me more than I ever thought possible, a treasure forever.

Thanks for your consideration

Laurence & Karen

the last one being the right trip (oh, I should have taken this one first!) and I am now engaged and in the visa process with a wonderful lady from Barranquilla, Colombia. She speaks great English, having worked as a translator for the local AFA office in the past. We'd both be delighted to help promote your work and testify to the success, the fun, the excitement!

Dear AFA,

I have been intending to write this email

since I got home from the Shenzhen tour, but the holiday season has kept me busy and I haven't been able to get around to it until now. I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful trip to Shenzhen. I wasn't sure what to expect and to be honest I went with some trepidation regarding to how things would go, but it worked out very well.

The hotel where we stayed was very nice. The neighborhood felt very safe and the staff there was very helpful when it came to getting around and providing directions to local areas I needed to go. I would stay there again should I visit Shezhen agian.

The first night there I met Amilia, the tour leader/manager for the Shenzhen office. She is a bright, young, woman who made the initial adjustment to China very easy. She was easy to talk to, friendly, and very accomodating. She handed out her cards to the group and told everyone that she would be available to help them at any time should the need arrise. Throughout the whole trip she was there to ensure our needs were taken care of and I apprecaited that very much.

The translators who I had the pleasure of getting to know, Amy, Careful, Anna, and Christine, were professional and very personable. They all seemed to care about helping us connect with the women we chose to meet. They were in many cases able to help convey the proper feeling of what was being said and really helped to facilitate a connection in a dificult enviornment.

The socials were very helpful. There was a good selection of women to meet at the socials in many different age groups and with various language abilities. All of the women I spoke with seemed very interested in getting to know me and seeing if we could develop a connection that could lead to something down the road.

The guys who were there for the tour were good too. There was a vast cross section of types of guys and I found that I got along with most of them. As with any group, there are always ones you get along with better than others, but in general I thought the tour participants were pretty interesting.

Overall, for me, I felt that the tour was a great success. I met some very interesting people and got to experience things that I never would have if I had not gone to China.

Thank you,

Todd M.

Mr. Patterson,

I apologize for withholding my survey until now.

The reason for the delay is simple. I wanted to gauge the customer service after the incredible experience to provide a fair and objective review. The tour was positively everything I expected and more. The staff was very sincere, helpful, and gracious; they went the extra mile to ensure I had a pleasant experience. What really makes me tip my hat off to them is the follow up friendship that has been established. The Shenzhen staff not only performed professionally, they have displayed their hearts are truly into their work. In my business, I can spot a potential business associate that is "in it for the money only" a mile away. This is certainly not the case in dealing with the fine team you have been fortunate to assemble. Please convey to your superiors, as well as your Shenzhen staff, the great job they are doing!

Just watched your 90-90-10 blog and I agree with you 100%.

I went to Chongqing China on a personnel tour last April after writing a couple of ladies there. The experience I had there was overwhelming. The staff went out of their way to help me and I developed a relationship with one translator that was really helpful. A couple of ladies went out of their way to impress me by taking me (they paid) to very nice restaurants on the first date. Two ladies impressed me by not trying to impress me. Our first dates we just walked around the area which gave us a chance to talk. Happy to say one of the these ladies and I are engaged and going through the fiancee visa process. Daisy and I hit it off very well and are looking to be together by next summer.

Thank you

Dear Yami (Yamileth),

First, how are you? I hope this message find you in the best; health, mind, body and soul. Second, and most important, I’d like to extend my appreciation for all your efforts on my behalf, and the other individuals attending the recent event held by your agency there in Barranquilla, thanks. It was my desire to extend my gratitude to your personally, as oppose to sending it to the main office.

Your dedication to achieving the objectives and making us all an intricate part of your overall success obtaining thereto was, to say the least, impressive. The constant care in which you catered to those clients who required it was at its upmost; professional, immeasurable, and your ability to make things happen in the blink of an eye goes without saying. Words cannot describe the consummate manager, advisor, logistician, and realist you are; the agency has the ideal, most importantly, right person to headline such an overwhelming task of doing the things that you make appear so easy and unnerving. Again thanks for all your efforts, not only on my behalf, but that of all the members attending the event; but most of all, to those fine and upstanding, lest I not forget, beautiful women, not only exterior, but that beauty revealed from with their very souls. Your means of honest assessments, and the truth and true nature of their (women and men) intentions was refreshing; you are the honest-broker that made pleasant that which was not believable, and to those who needed a dose of reality allowed them to look at their possibilities and objects; it was a pleasure to watch as you turned water into wine, metaphorically speaking of course.

Lastly, thanks for all your efforts in assisting me with the communication and arrangement of the interesting person I met (name withheld for her privacy), you know to whom I am referring (your taxi mate); thank you! It is my hope that she and I will get to know each other better, and should that happen, you will be definitely made aware; as we (with her approval) move forward with whatever processes required. With that said, please extend my appreciation to your agency, consummate professionals are far and few; you are by and large, the best at your craft. Yami, you exude that professionalism and strength, one who puts their heart into making successful any given task.

Finally, I would be remiss in my appreciation and admiration if I did not address that true professional, new friend, who aided, guided, and conveyed my words and thoughts in such an effective manner, Karen , my personal translator. Thanks for being, the honest agent to and for me, for looking out for my interests, and providing the best advice as I maneuvered through the maze of endless (pleasant and intriguing) conversations. You are the best! I would recommend you to any and every one; of course, this is in no way a slight on the other fine professional fellow translators by far. It is my hope, that the last translation session will be the most memorable; no words can describe your efforts Karen... You to, are the consummate professional who puts her heart and soul into making anything you engage in a success! Thanks.

Sincerely and Warmest Regards,

Mr. Calvin B.

Good day Anna,

I just wanted to write a short email to you from Sumy. I know a personal tour is not as good as a group tour, but I wanted to email you and let you know I am having a wonderful time here, and the translator, Nelly is just wonderful, she is really going out of her way to help me. I have yet to meet that special one for me, however: I am falling in love with Sumy. I have a few more days so please wish me the best. I do want to say, though; that if you need to, I will make my contact information available to anyone who wants to know about a personal tour. On the webcasts, not much is mentioned about personal tours, if AFA ever wants to, I will make myself available to call in and share my experience here with others like me, who would rather do a personal tour.. It is tough with their work and other plans, however, I would not miss this for the world.

Thank you again for everything.

Dear Bud and of course John.

This is the official letter to thank all of you and the other members of AFA for all the help you have extended me in my search for my Marina. I first became aware of AFA when I watched a movie about two brothers who went to Moscow. I had been a failure at finding a lady in the US. I have been married twice and as my photos show I am most assuredly not Brad Pitt. I will be 60 soon so I am not a man who would attract young women even though I am a young minded man. I am very active in doing volunteer work. I have several hobbies that I enjoy and I enjoy travel very much. Most of these activities are not as much fun when doing them alone-even flying which I love is not the same when alone. To make my average story shorter,I came to seek a lady in another country. I went to other web sites but I came to the conclusion that your company is THE way to success. I have your book,Bud and can say that while reading it many times I understand all of the ideas you put forth. I was not able to go on a tour but I am convinced that it is the best way to travel to another country to meet that one woman to marry. My frist trip to Odessa was because I narrowed my search and contacted several ladies there. Max and Anna were very helpful. ( I should say that the one lady I planned to meet on that trip was killed in her car some short time before I was to travel.) It was a very succeessful trip in that I learned many things that has made me successful in my search. On my second trip I was to meet Marina and we fell in love in about 30 seconds. It was mutual and today it is becoming a strong and wonderful thing. We did not speak the same language when we met but Marina has worked very hard to learn English for me. My Russian is very bad but I will improve. I can say that all that you say in your book is accurate. As I related to you last night, I was fortunate that Marina took very little time to become happy here in Nebraska. Tonight we enrolled her in "English as a second language" at the continuing ed. class. In closing, I can say that I could not be happier and Marina asks that I say she agrees (she looks over my shoulder as I type) Her English reading is very good! Thanks once again and if ever I can be of assistance to you-my friend-you only need to ask. I have some contacts in the local news media.

I will stop here by saying that I have shown the program which is on the We network as part of the "secret lives of women" to maybe 15 men and all agree that it may be THE way to meet the one woman to marry. All agree that John is a very lucky man-Tanya seems to be much too good for him---ha ha. God bless and keep in touch


p.s you mentioned some men in the Omaha area that you know. feel free to give my e-mail and even my phone number. I would welcome friends here for Marina and I to know

This was a trip of a lifetime for me.

The guys on the tour and the AFA staff was really great. I did meet somebody and we are working on our relationship and I will go back in January to propose to her. I have been writing her since March of this year and it was great to meet her in Poltava. We are now working on moving forward with our relationship. I will only go on another tour if this does not workout. I do need to know what type of services and support your company can offer me when I return to Poltava, and any good advice as I move along in the process will be appreciated. Thank you very much for doing everything you promised.

Please Post I had a wonderful experience while in Cebu,

the office there was absolutely awesome! They worked hard for everyone and you left feeling like you made a office full of friends. Everything proceeded in a class manner, I was very happy with the outcome. I meet a wonderful woman and am planning my return trip to attend her sister's wedding. I look forward to the relationship growing and seeing her again. Great job by all!

It's the best vacation I ever had,

and I got to meet many really fine ladies in Cebu. didn't finalize a deal yet but will probably go back to Cebu in November to see a couple of ladies that I really like, one in particular. I've never been one of the "cool kids" before that got to date all the really hot babes, but in Cebu "I still got it." If I don't finalize a deal then I will probably take the tour to Shenzhen China. looks like some really good ladies there too, but it would be hard to beat the Cebu ladies.

John Adams...

forgive me for not writing sooner.

But I wanted to wait until I booked a return trip to Ukraine. I was a tour participant on the AFA Odessa trip this past May. I also was a guest during the July webcast with host Bud Patterson. I wish to tell you everything on this trip far exceeded my expectations. Everyone was personable, professional, responsible, and fun. To be truthful John...I was somewhat skeptical going in. I had considered a trip of this type for a long time, and even went so far as to visit Costa Rica on my own. April I suddenly and somewhat impulsively decided to take the plunge. only regret is that I did not take advantage of your services sooner. But then I would not have met the woman I did meet. John...I must confess that I never thought I would find love. Seriously. I figured I was destined to remain single. But this has all changed. For thanks to AFA, I met someone who I never dreamed existed. I feel as if I am living in a d! ream state or fairy tale. It is unreal. Nataliya and I Skype, email or speak every single day. Every day! I have retained the services of Maria Jones and am so excited for our future. I feel like a kid at Christmas. It's incredible. I am happy. And I have you to thank.

Please allow me to comment a bit on the trip. I am sure you received your share of complaints but I am not the type to dwell on minor annoyances or petty disagreements, etc. Besides, I am a 100% satisfied customer! As far as I can guys are amazing. Max is incredible. A true asset. I feel as if I made a friend for life. He even telephoned me back in the states on my birthday. I was sick during the trip as well and he and Anna got me medicine and even took me to the pharmacy. This was an experience in itself. Anna and Max...wonderful people and so good at what they do. I must also commend Mike. I thought he did a super job of handling things during the trip. You know John, it isn't always easy to deal with numerous personality types and I feel Mike simply was outstanding as our 'resident advisor'. Seriously, such a nice guy. I cannot say enough good things about him. I also need to mention Dean. I guess he is a tour veteran and he knows you guys fairly well. He helped me out a lot when I was sick and when we got back to Vienna he took charge of things regarding our accommodations. A real asset and a great guy. John, I could go on and on. The entire trip was fantastic. You guys and gals are all great. I was planning on meeting you at JFK in June but could not attend. I will definitely be attending the Philadelphia conference and look forward to introducing myself. As I mentioned in the beginning of this email, I am returning to Ukraine September 19 to see Nataliya. If there is anything I can do for you - any time, any place - please do not hesitate to let me know. Once more, I cannot thank you enough.

I called the office at 602-553-8178 and I spoke with Liz at ext. 205

It's a pleasure doing business with a corporation whose employees are professional. Liz has the ability and speaking delivery capability that was calmly and rapidly taking care of my concerns. Liz worked to help me accomplish all I intended to do in the first place. To make the transaction that allowed all 4 letters written yesterday, myself more than willing to pay for those letters to be delivered.

I'm interested in Mei, from Shenyang, China. I will speak with you before I go to Shenyang, China- Dec. or Jan. to see her at my own expense. I'm also checking with a Christian based English language institute to teach English there in China. I do have a Doctorate in English. Information I rarely mention. I'm planning on moving to China to also give Mei and me plenty of time to get to know me, as well as myself getting better acquainted with her.

Thank you for your time,

Hello all,
I came, I saw, I believe!

You can list me as a satisfied client. I attended this Odessa tour on a last minute basis. The airfare with Austrian Airlines was unbelievably. Austria Airlines rocks! Our accommodations during the return Vienna layover were excellent! We got a van from the hotel within minutes to the city. It was perfect. My luggage was safe. (Though weight was a problem) Well done!
As a rookie, I did not have any expectations. I did not have time to get any invitations out to anyone. I did not know anyone and really did not spend much time with your web casts. I knew about your seminars.
I have been using your website for letters on and off for a few years. I have spoken to Liz at AFA for years. Letters are worthless without a "face to face" contact.
My home is the beautiful historic town of Meeker, Colorado. It is a town of 2,500. We are near the Flattop wilderness. We have clean air and water. We have many mountain lakes and trails. Our waters of wild trout and forests of elk and deer attract world-class fishermen and hunters. Our mountains are known for skiing. We are experiencing a natural gas energy boom (drilling, new plants and pipelines).
We have new elementary school and recreation center. We do not have to lock doors and cars. Our children are safe. Parents can send their children to school on bikes and not have to worry. All of the single mothers on your database would approve of what out town offers children. We have a community college program. We have a dozen churches.
It is just a great place to live.
But there has and will always be a lack of single, educated, attractive women in Rural America. I have been single for these reasons.
I highly recommend that all your clients from small towns to get on a plane. I can't offer an opinion for single men from large urban areas.
Now, I admit that I made ALL of the mistakes that a rookie can make on this tour. The list is embarrassing. My experiences could make some clients sour on these tours. However, by its very nature romance is an imperfect process. I don't understand why Ukraine women want to meet American men. There is no question that this is true.
There is a "zero" chance of finding and attractive woman in my town. Your tours offer some light at the end of the romance tunnel. One must have patience, persistence and perseverance.
There are billions of single women on this planet. There is no way a guy should feel trapped in a small town. Whether it is the Ukraine, Russia, China, Peru, Philippines, Costa Rica or South America, AFA has found a way to connect people in a vacation like setting. This cannot be done by email- it is done by showing up.
I give you guys the THUMBS UP! I think Will, Max and Anna, interpreters, staff; bus driver undertook heroic team efforts to make stuff happen. I am grateful to the ladies for attending these events too. Everything costs money. Everything takes time. I never felt anything unsafe. I saw no drugs or illegal conduct.
I saw more attractive women in a week than I have ten years at home. I hope it was as fun for the women as it was for me. For the most part, the other members of this trip were just responsible guys.

My 2 cents!

Take care,
Joe F.

To Afa,

I want to thank you for all the help you have given me.

My trip went very well and I was pleased with your staff at San Jose. Gustavo was personable and understanding. His help was very important for me with the girl I had met. He has a solid relationship with his staff ,the girls that are signed up and the interpreters. The interpreter I used many times was excellent. Her name was Jessica..

Thank you again,

Hi Iya,

Thank you very much for sending me three tapes that I can share

to whoever will be interested joining your sponsored tours. I had a wonderful time specially in Nikolaev where I had the opportunity to meet with Irina who was the main reason why I joined the tour. Unlike the other members of our Tour Group, I only dated Irina. Some of the members whom I became friendly with asked me how many girls I dated and when I told them only one, they said: "Are you crazy? You travelled thousands of miles and had the opportunity to date so many beautiful girls and you dated only one?" They had a point, but see, I did not care. I accomplished what I set out to do - to meet the girl of my dreams and at the same time saw the beautiful country side of Ukraine. I wish to thank you and all the staff, specially Mike Harrison and Max for a wonderful adventure. They did a super job.

Sincerely yours,

Just wanted to take a moment to once again thank you

for all of your hard work. You have made my experience in this matter most enjoyable. I was kind of apprehensive going into this endeavor. Thanks to you, you made it a pleasure.

I viewed the Dr. Phil show on "mail order brides"

and I felt unsatisfied with how much time the show gave you and your organization. I have watched other documentaries on this subject and I find that AFA is probably one of the better ones.

Just my opinion.

Hello John!

I hope that you are doing great and that all is great with you.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and the entire Foreign Affair staff for the great job you did on the Odessa tour. I have to say that it was a very unique experience for me and I had a wonderful time and glad that I made the decision to go on the trip. I met so many nice people and had a blast. I definitely feel that going on the trip created some opportunities for me that I otherwise would not have had if it were not for the assistance of Foreign Affair. I would absolutely recommend the tours to anyone who may be thinking of going and those people who are not familiar with Foreign Affair. Who knows, I may go again someday. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the conference call on April 14th because I have another engagement, but I am looking foward to seeing the video. Once again, many thanks to you and your staff for your outstanding work and for making this memorable trip possible. It was a pleasure meeting you and should I need assistance in the future, I will be sure to contact you. John, I hope that you have a great day and please take care and stay well.

Hello John!

It's Henry from the Odessa tour! Everything is going great with Elena & I

we Skype everyday, and just celebrated our one month anniversary! AFA has helped change our lives in an incredible way! If you'd like to see it, I'll send you a link to a movie I created for us! We are planning a late June holiday together somewhere in europe. Anyway, I wonder if your Tanya would be available, to correspond with me, or even Elena. I have some questions from time to time, and I think it might be really good for her.


All the best!

Dear John and Tanya.

Cebu I am finally sitting here to express my feeling of gratitude.

I will try to be brief. I am an average man who found himself divorced and wondering what to do next. I am a person who needs to love as most of us do. I tried the various ways of meeting women---I guess after being married for over 20 years I had lost my skills at dating. I tried on-line dating at the insistence of my sons. What a waste of my time and now I have this feeling of futility. I knew that service men had been bringing wives home from countries for many years. I remember seeing a movie about two men and one wife---your story. At about this time I met a man who has a wife from the Phillipines. In the course of my travels I found several men who have married ladies from other countries with great success. I took the plunge and found a site that rated the companies doing this. I bounced around looking and was getting nowhere. Many ladies had contacted me but I still did not understand how to go about this. It was at this time that I first visited LOVE-ME. I was impressed immediately. I started a relationship with a nice lady from Kherson [ but how to get there] I decided to go on a tour with you. When I told Tatiana this she was happy then several days later she asked me not to come on a tour. She was sure that I would meet another and forget her. We agreed that I would come alone and she would be my guide. This was November 2009. I was planning to travel in January. In mid december I was told by her grown son that Tatiana was killed while driving her car. I was naturally devistated, but came to a decision to go to Ukraine on a single tour. I met Max and had a wonderful time --I also met with Tatiana's son. I fell in love with Odessa. Upon my return I decided to book a tour later and return to Odessa. In March I was contacted by Marina. We became close immediately. I continued to watch LOVE-ME and still played the field but no lady came close to Marina. After exchangingover 100 e-mails I decide to return to Odessa in September. We spent over two weeks living together and learning every day. I met her family and came home Engaged. We applied for her Fiancee visa through a friend who is here in Omaha and practices Immagration law. Today I received the letter that says that the visa has been granted and the papers have been sent to Kiev. We are very happy and now can plan to meet in Odessa and travel to Nebraska together. This may be just another average story but I know that It is my story and my success is because of the work that you do. I have talked to you on two occasions and really appreciated your caring manner. I have the episode of "secret lives of women" on my dvr and have shown it to several men. They all agree that Tanya is very beautiful and they like her easy going manner. The first time I watched it I planned to be alone but several men--including my son and his friends with several of my single friends. It was very inspiring and informational. I hope that someday I can meet you both in person so that I can look you in the eye and shake your hand. As I have said on the phone--I am at your disposal if I can ever be of service,you only need to ask. One of the things I have used most from your site is the BOOK. Bud did a fine job and I can attest that all he said has come to pass. Oh Marina is 48--I am 59 I could not be happier with my young lady. You can count me and marina as engaged because of your site. One last thought: I have had the pleasure of talking to many of your staff and they are all wonderful--I felt that I was being helped as a friend --not as a customer. Please relay my happy news to Liz--she is great.

Take care and our best wishes.

After see your website, and like how easy it was to use

took the Barranquilla tour in December 2010, had a wonderful time meeting the women there. And I would like to thank Yami and her stuff for a great job they did for us, and setting up a date for me. It worked out great, I meet a very nice lady and we have started to visa work for her to come to the U.S. I will be visiting Sandra in June and meeting her family. And once again A Foreign Affair did a great job on this tour.

I'm sorry if this reads a bit like a police report

thats what I'm used to writing. First I'll address conducting business with your operation in Phoenix. It was about business but always prompt, polite and professional. But there was always a personal touch that made it all work for me. I came to Barranquilla Colombia on the Latin Tour. When I cleared customs at three in the morning there was a driver holding a sign with my name on it. Later that morning I was met by a wonderful interpreter who took me to the office to meet with the first of the ladies I had requested to meet. Let me cut to the chase here and give you the facts. Yami and Cecilia made me feel welcome as their guest. Everything went smoothly until the second day. That was when I met Ruth and my life changed. There wasn't sparks, there was fireworks!I am now housed in a great apartment thanks to "Journey" (my interpreter and now close friend) and Ruth. Yes; I am staying in Barranquilla. Thanks to a great team in Phoenix and fantastic people here in Barranquilla, I couldn't be more happy and content. Here it is guys, you can write letters until the cows jump over the moon. Get off of your butt and change your life. You'll NEVER get to know any woman by exchanging letters. This is the real deal all the way. You think I am BSing you? I am putting my email address here for you to contact me about Barranquilla Colombia: (Please call (602) 553-8178 for the Perry's E-mail address Yes, contact me for the right way to become a happy man. And NO, I was not paid nor asked to write this. GET IT DONE!

Hello my name is Steve and I just returned from Cartagena

on the 29th of November. This was my first trip with AFA, and I truly did not know what to expect. I feel it is important to tell you that, your staff in Cartagena far exceeded my expectations. I know that latin people are very wonderful, but Sandra and the manager went out of their way to ensure my experience was wonderful. I am writting, because I would like their efforts to be acknowledged by both myself and your company. Even if it is only a simple email thanking them for their dedication, hard work, and friendly attitude. Because of their efforts, I would recommend them and your service to anyone who is looking for someone special abroad. As for me I believe that I have found the person I am looking for, but will use AFA when I return to spend time with her.

I wish you, your family, and your employees a wonderful holiday season. God bless all of you with happiness, success, and peace

you know i have dated women here and meet a few great women from

the Ukraine and Russia . we have allot of great women here in America but the women over there, well if you have never been there you will never know the difference and its Big . your tours are more fun then words can tell. i still talk to a few of the guys from my tours, we all feel these tours were a trip of a lifetime .growing up in the 70s who would have ever thought i would see Red Square or Saint Petersburg . i really enjoyed my trip there and what better then to be shown around on a date . you cant experience that here . the one trip i went on to Nitzny Novgorod i had a chance to talk to a class at the American University there , they wanted to Know why its so hard for them to come to America. i told them i think we have all been sold allot of propaganda . you are supposed to be mean and crazy People (Russian's) sure you have to be careful where you go like any large city , but the Russian People have always been great and love to talk to you and know more about America.

Well i just hope i can go back again.

Hello John,

great to hear from you and thank you for a fabulous time.

your dedication to making our trip a success was evident to everyone. you and the staff went out of their way 24/7 to accomodate a diverse group of guys with different needs and wants. EXCEPTIONAL!

I am booking a trip back to Nickoli in June to be with Natalia who I met there. we are spending the week in the Crimea and will be starting the paperwork to bring her home. Things didn't work out with Elena (interpreter) as she had doubts and backed out which is better known now than later. before I go in June, can i call you for some traveling advice on best ways to get to Nickoli from Odessa and make arrangements in the Crimea, and the best place to visit in that area?

thanks again,

Privet to all the guys out there who are considering an AFA romantic tour.

Some of you are interested in Latin America or Asia. Because of past travels, I selected the Ukraine. So I decided to book the March 23, 2011 tour to Odessa, Nikolaev and Kherson although I had never visited these cities. Before I found AFA, I had been writing to several ladies on another site. This turned out to be an advantage because I was able to meet them and AFA had no problem with this although I had dates with many AFA girls. This preparation became a considerable advantage because I was able to "hit the ground running" and had dates immediately upon arrival. More on that later.

So what are the key factors for success? Well, I believe it is several things. AFA delivered all that they promised and more. We are all responsible for our own happiness. I would say that the keys are focused expectations and preparation. My dad used to say "Son, if you don't know what you are looking for, you will never find it". Simple, but so true.

Know in advance what you are looking for and do your best to not deviate from your criteria. These are the "dealbreakers". Examples are age, position on children, for me, height. For you there may be others. I don't mean to dismiss the magic. It happens. Are you willing to be flexible on your criteria for that special girl? Believe me, they are out there and they are more flexible than you.

Then there are expectations. How do you define success? Engagemet in a week? I saw it happen. However, for me I looked at it this way. I was determined to go on a much needed vacation and have a great time - I did. I reasoned that if I returned with the personal contact information of several girls that there was mutual attraction, great. That happened also, and I am working that now. Also, I will return soon, although not on a tour. I need to discover if there is serious attraction with these ladies and perhaps others. So, there it is for me. I am sure that it may be different for you. I saw this among the great group of guys on the tour. We are still in touch.

You have the opportunity to meet hundreds of girls of all types, ages and circumstances. The folks in the agencies and the fantastic translators will do all they can to help you and want you to succeed. I have no complaints about any aspect of the conduct of the tour. You will see for yourself. View the videos of past tours. They are very accurate and truthful.

Now for some practical advice. Make a decision and go!! Very few men do so. I had a date with a gorgeous girl and asked how many letters she received and how many guys she had met. She said hundreds of letters (she was very beautiful - a 10 over here, but I was only her second date!!) I am still in touch with her. When you go, you will be like a rock star over there. The fact is that there are millions more women than men. The Ukranian guys don't treat them well and die early. The odds are greatly in your favor. Age is a very minimal factor for them. Although I was not serious because of my criteria (which I very carefully followed), I was easily able to date girls much younger than my daughter!

Perpare ahead of time by selecting ladies that you feel you could be serious with and write them. Don't write hundreds of letters. It is not necessary. Be selective. The agency will help you meet them. That was key to my success. In 11 days and 3 cities, I had over 30 dates. Now I am home with a handful of ladies that could be "the one". Oh, and don't dismiss serendipity. I saw it happen. You meet a lady one way or another and lighting strikes - carpe diem! Just be sure to do what you can to get to know her and see if there is a possibility. On the flip side, be very careful about "junior high infatuation" and being crushed if doesn't work out. I also saw this happen. Get back on the horse and attend all the socials.

Forgive me for being so verbose, but I am on your side and want you to find happiness. We all deserve it.

Study all the information on the AFA site, ask for references (I'm happy to speak to you). Learn a bit about their culture and their language. Buy Bud Patterson's excellent book. Dial in to the calls and webcasts. Then get off the couch, book a tour and go!! It's the only way and worth every penny. (what would an 11 day vacation or cruise cost you and how many women would you be likely to meet?) I wish you all the best. You are thinking "outside the box" and being courageous. You are one of the few.

Dear Liz,

My name is Bruce; and I am writing to you today

from my hotel room in San Jose, Costa Rica. I took your November 2009 tour to Costa Rica; where I met the most wonderful, smart and intelligent woman named Ana, that I have ever know in my life. She had such an effect on me, that I travelled on 4 different occasions back to Costa Rica. On July, 24 2010, USCIS recieved my I-129 pettion that I filled on her behalf; and while I was in Costa Rica (on one of my visits to see Ana) on Valentine's Day this year, I recieved notice that the I-129 Pettion was approved. Yesterday, April 5, 2011; Ana had her Interview at the Embassy and her Visa was approved and tomorrow at 3 pm, we are to return to the Embassy and recieve the Visa in person. I just wanted to thank you and John and Gustavo for everything. This company has truly changed my life and I am looking forward to bringing Ana back to the United States this Saturday.. By the way, Saturday is also Ana's Birthday; and I don't think that I could of given her a more appropiate gift. Thank you from the bottom of and Ana's heart. Please feel free to add my name and telephone to number to the list of many satisfied men who have finally found happiness with the help of your services.

It is my belief that a job well done should be recognized.

So I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you that your man Gustavo in San Jose has treated me extremely well and provided excellent service and support while dealing with LoveMe.

I have been actively using your service in Costa Rica and have dated several wonderful Latina ladies. The experience was enhanced because Gustavo has been very supportive. He has done everything from translation to tips on restaurants and any other need I have requested.

Your service is #1, as is your man in Costa Rica,

Best Regards,

Dear Ron and AFA

Cebu I am writing this letter to sincerely thank you -

for making it possible to meet the love of my life! As you know I went to Cebu City on Feb. 5 th 2011 to meet Jocelyn who I met on the AFA site. Your staff in Cebu were very professional and kind to me. After the introduction Jocelyn and I left to for Cebu City to meet her family and to go to Boracay. To make a long story short we had our engagement party on Feb. 11th in Cebu City and the K 1 Visa process has been started. Your service has provided me the opportunity to find what I have been searching for so long. That search ended when I met Jocelyn. She is everything she said and so much more and most important we have fell in love over the last 5 months and planned to get married as soon as her visa is approved. I see some of the blogs on the Internet which talk about less than favourable results in finding a foreign bride. Well, I think it is like anything in life. If you go into it with your eyes wide open and really truly take the time and spend a little money for a service like AFA the results speak for itself. I will forever be indebted to you and thankful to you for the service you provided. I have to be the happiest man on earth right now!! I have attached a picture of Jocelyn and I.

Sincerely, Donald


Tour photo Just a quick note to say I had a good time as always-

and the Machu Picchu portion was friggin AMAZING. Top 2 best trip ever. Phil and I climbed the mountain- 9000 ft. scared the hell outta me but I wouldn't take it back. Gringo bills was a neat little place, although they could use some alarm clocks as their wake up calls are non-existent, but they were really nice people and made us feel welcome. But what an experience. Anyone that takes that tour and doesn't go is out of their mind. Thanks again for a great trip and service, you guys are the best.

I will say that without doubt my experience with your organization has been absolutely terrific.
