Ken & Valentina beautiful couple
Valentyna and I met on the Online Dating Ukraine Site approximately mid summer 2012. I looked at many faces and profiles for months but just could not find that perfect woman for me. Most were just too young or they just did not seem right for me. Just when I felt I was ready to give up I found Valya’s profile and it intrigued me. We had a lot of common interests and we both wanted to explore similar places. Both of us had traveled fairly extensively, her in Europe and me in North America, South America and the Caribbean Islands. It seemed I might have found someone who I could express my inner feelings with. Then another lady showed an interest in me and even wanted to spend Christmas with me. What should I do, I thought. Just when I was about to reply to her she advised she had to go to China on business during Christmas but would like to hook up after Christmas.
I began conversing with Valya for more than 3 months and we always had lots to say and many questions of each other. She was divorced with two grown up children and I also had two grown up children and one adopted child. I had been separated for 20 years but had never filed for my divorce. We had similar backgrounds in many areas and the same passion for traveling. During the 4 or so months that passed we were able to better get to know each other. I was relieved that she took the initiative to ask if I were sexually active and in good health. It made it that much more relaxing for both of us getting that question out of the way because now we could ask anything and everything about each other. When we had explored each other to the point where all questions were asked of each other we decided to meet. Coming to Canada for Valya would be difficult but for me it was quite simple. We agreed I should meet her at Donetsk Airport on the 20th November, 2012. She informed me that I should stay at a hotel in Mariupol for 2 or 3 days so we could get acquainted in person. I did not think much of the idea but went along with it.
I was the first person to get off the plane in Donetsk and up to the Immigration desk. The official looked at my passport and asked me for my visa. I did not speak Russian but tried to explain to him Canada and Ukraine had an agreement and no visa was necessary. He took what seemed forever before he went to another officer to check my story and then came back. He then told me to wait and he would get his boss. Finally the boss man looked at me and then the passport and told him it was okay. The stamp was applied. Meanwhile all but one other were left and he got ahead of me, I being the first off the plane and the last to get through immigration. I could now see the crowd and what I thought might be Valya but she was eyeing another younger man with long hair but then she turned toward me and I saw a big smile come across her face. We held each other for quite some time and even kissed each other. She was no stranger to me, it was if I knew her all my life. You see, I was in love with the person before I actually met her. I knew she was the one and now it was confirmed. We went outside and I was met by her 26 year old son. You could see he accepted me right away because his mother had. We climbed into the back seat and held hands, squeezing each other and the occasional sneeked kiss. I just had to ask her the question, “do I need to go to a hotel for 2 or 3 nights``. She replied, `` no you are coming with me.`` . Wow! What a relief. I could only stay in Ukraine for 90 days so on the 7th December we went for 10 days to Dubai where we also visited Abu Dobbi and New Sum Dum. We had a fabulous time and our friendship blossomed. On March 15th we flew to Istanbul, Turkey where we spent 3 days touring the city and taking in the sites. I flew back to Nova Scotia, Canada on the 16th April 2013 but with much regret. Back home during my 90 day wait I had much work to do around the house but we stayed in contact by way of Skype on a daily basis, sometimes 2 and 3 times a day. I returned to Mariupol on the 17th July 2013 and have remained ever since. My divorce certificate has come to my lawyer and it has been stamped by the JLAC (Justice Department) and forwarded to the Ukrainian Embassy in Ottawa for translation and stamping. It will be then sent to the Canadian Embassy, put in a diplomatic pouch and sent to the Canadian Embassy in Kiev where we must obtain it and fill out papers to get married. I would recommend this site to anyone looking for a bride. There are so many beautiful and intelligent women in the Ukraine. They know how to dress and they keep themselves very fit. I think it is absolutely the best thing a perspective groom should do is to visit this site, take his time, get to know the person before actually going on that first date. I did and I am so very happy to have met such a warm, intelligent and beautiful Ukrainian.
PS : We are leaving for Panama on the 16th October for 6 months hopefully as a married couple.
Regards, Ken & Valentyna
