I’ve traveled the world and seen a lot of types of women, but I never thought about joining a website like A Foreign Affair Dating site. The website claims to offer romantic tours of the world to help you connect with women in places like the Europe, Asia, and Latin America. They promise the services are tailor made for you and that your travels will meet your satisfaction. They’ve been doing it for over 20 years, so they must be doing something right. Today I share my A Foreign Affair review, with my always unfiltered opinion on whether this may be a good idea for you to participate in.
The Story of A Foreign Affair
First, it was “AForeignAffair.com,” then it was “Loveme.com,” and their tag line of their website says “date Russian women.” Color me confused on if this is an approach to try to set up hook ups, or marriages?
Either way, that’s a bit confusing. Anyhow…
The company launched in 1995 so they were definitely early movers in the Internet space. With that much time in the game, they are definitely doing something right, so I have to applaud them for that. Over 25 years in the business is a great accomplishment, and that is a nod to the high quality services they provide for gentlemen looking to meet women on romance tours. Tours range from 7 to 14 days and they mainly consist of visits to Eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America. There is a lot of information promoting Russia and the Ukraine, so it seems they have a foothold on those regions in comparison to the other two.
The romantic tours are designed to allow you to travel and meet women. The company makes all of the bookings for you and it does over 10 tours per year. Every tour starts in the USA and their website does a good job of reporting on past excursions.
However, in 2022 it seems they may have more tours as just in the next few weeks ahead they have four on their schedule.
How to Join LoveMe.com
If you are interested in checking out the website, you have the ability to create a free profile. All you have to do is provide your name, email, and where you live and then tell them which areas of the world you are interested in touring. There’s a quick set of questions and then you can browse LoveMe.com to your hearts content to find yourself a foreign date, bride, or just go on a tour without any intentions. For some reason, dating a Russian woman requires you to update your subscription.
When I went through this process I’ll have to say the user experience is disappointing. It’s definitely in need of an upgrade and looks and operates every bit of a site launched in the 90’s.
How to Use A ForeignAffair
Again, it’s free to create a profile and browse. When and if you choose to upgrade your account you’ll be able to send emails and make phone calls to women. In yet another interesting angle, you can send gifts to Russian women, but only to Russian women. This just makes up my mind that this operation is based there or has some strong roots there.
This is where it gets hairy for me. You can’t do any live video chats (or even just live chats) on the site. This is done to encourage you to book with them so they can essentially be your travel agent and make fee’s off of you to meet these women! They book everything for you, so you won’t be able to use any travel hacks and save money. You are simply FORCED to stay at the bookings they make for you, and if I’m a gambling man, (I am) I’d say they have an interest in these properties as well. More power to ’em, I guess.
Lastly, if you do go on a tour, fall in love, and want to go all 90 Day Fiance on a woman and bring her home with you, the company will of course assist you in the process of getting visas that would help you move through immigration so you can bring your new mail order bride back to the USA with you one day.
LoveMe.com Pricing and Fees
Again, you can register for free, but that’s about it. After that, in order to email the mainly Russian database of women you have to pay for this service. You not only pay a monthly fee to join the site and have access, but after that, you have to pay to send the letters, make the calls, and then even more for translation services. Here is a breakdown of some of the LoveMe.com fees:
- Silver Membership: access to 1-2 email addresses, $12 per letter, $5.99 per minute of an interpreted phone call
- Gold Membership: access to 3-10 email addresses, $9 per letter
- Platinum Membership: $95 to start and $29.95 monthly. Access to 100 emails per month and $7.49 per email and $3.99 phone calls with translation.
Are you still with me after reading that? I don’t blame you if you said “F IT” to this A Foreign Affair review and totally ditched out to read about something else, or just carried on with your day. At the end of the day, it’s a lot more cost effective to just roll the dice on joining an adult dating site where women are waiting to just have a man reach out for some hot romance.
I can’t wrap my head around these fees. I’ve traveled the world and created this blog to look out for fellow bro’s in their sexual conquests. I’ve published extensive travel diaries on sex in Panama, meeting Costa Rican women, and even an expose on a country you could pay an arm and a leg to visit if you use A Foreign Affair Travel Agency (LOL) to meet Colombian women. I mean, come on, this model may have worked in the 90’s and even the early 2000’s, but guys are armed with information these days, can book their own travel, and with, or without, a wingman, can meet women on foreign soil. It’s rather easy.
