I came to this site to find the man of my dreams who might become my future husband. I met Derrick, who is 62 years and lives in the USA where he is a professor at an institute. We started chatting and, after just 30 minutes, we realized that we were interested in each other and that we wanted to meet in real life.
Derrick said he could come to me in Kharkov but I did not really believe that he was ready to do that. I never believe just in words, actions mean much more to me. So we corresponded by letter and we learned to get to know each other better. Then the day came when he flew to the Ukraine. I was glad and surprised that I was finally meeting the man who had kept his promise and come to visit me. We agreed to meet on Sunday and we were to be provided with an interpreter so that we would understand each other properly.
The Sunday came, I was very worried about what to expect from the meeting because there was a difference in our culture and language. Some things could be strange for an American. I had imagined how Derrick would be in reality. In my mind, I had painted a portrait of him and thought about things he had said, about the meeting and how to behave, about the differences in age and languages. So, when it was time for the meeting I got dressed, put on make-up and went to the place where we had arranged to meet. We met near the Chateau restaurant, which is located in the heart of Kharkov near the opera house... after our romantic meeting, I felt many emotions. I liked Derrick and he was better than my expectations. He was cheerful and he even danced. It was fun and I liked it. We spent 3 hours together but the time passed very quickly and it was sad to say goodbye. Outside, the weather was wonderful and, thanks to Alina, we could easily understand each other and not feel awkward. I really enjoyed the whole day and our meeting! I appreciate when a man fulfills his promises and is ready to fly many kilometers for our meeting. This shows a great desire to get to know each other better and the fact that the man is as serious about a relationship as I am. Many thanks to this site for the opportunity to meet such a decent man. I do not know how this story will turn out, but I do believe in a happy future.
