Счастье есть? Есть, есть......


Самое важное в отношениях-чувствовать не страсть, а заботу и уверенность. Уверенность в том, что тебя ценят, что тебя не отпустят, что за тебя становятся ответственным, что защитят от любых бед и просто хотят быть рядом. Ни что не заменит ценность момента, когда тебя просто заботливого и крепко обнимают.

Какие обычаи новой страны вам нравятся или не нравятся?


Переезжая в новую страну, мы сталкиваемся иногда с совсем новыми обычаями и традициями. Иногда они нравятся, иногда нет.
Раньше такое я только в кино видела, что все забыли о памятной дате, а потом - опля!-заказан ресторан, гости собрались и ждут только тебя и только ты одна, как дура, без прически и в затрапезном наряде ...у меня мало того, что помолвка так прошла, так и еще несколько юбилеев 
А у вас есть что-нибудь эдакое?

Relocating to UK


Hello Forumites!

I am a UK Citizen and have been in a relationship with a Russian Lady for some years now.
We would like to live together in the UK (ultimately marriage), and are curious how best to go about it.

Are there any UK websites that detail in depth the various requirements including visa types for her to live and work in the UK? If so, which?

I'd welcome specific information about:

- Visa types and their requirements/ramifications?
- Necessary salaries (Her and Me)?
- Necessary savings (Her and Me)?
- Home (Should the UK home be bought already, or is renting adequate?)
- Employment (I must be an employee through PAYE, Self-Employed, or is Freelance OK?)
- Necessary Level of English Competency? With approved certification through which specific organisation(s) e.g. IELTS?
- Her 'rights' to future UK Employment? When would that be granted?
- Her 'rights' to 'free' NHS Treatment, at the same level granted other UK residents?

`


Thanking you in advance for your help!

My marriage to a Rusian Woman


Hi All,

Let me share my experience that I had. I met this Russian woman while I was working in Moscow back in 2012 until 2015. She was 24 years old. Our relationship continued for until recently. I have been supporting her for past 4 years. Send money about 60T Ruble monthly and twice a year she would come to Malaysia for holidays. Off course, I paid for it. We got married last year and I thought everything was fine. We decided to buy a house there in Russia until I am able to move there in next 4 years time. I kept asking her to spent more time with me here. Since she is not working anyway. With the current economy situation and also we are married I told her come and spend more time here at least 6 months a year. To cut the story short, after she took 2 million Rubles of my money. she decided she had enough of our relationship, she went quiet for 2 months and finally blocked my whatsapp and all other means of communicating with her. We had known each other for 4 years and married only for 5 months.. Like they said money changed people.. It sad but true..

Как помочь бедным животным?


ПЕКИН, 20 мая – РИА Новости. Власти китайского Уханя, очага распространения COVID-19, ввели полный запрет на потребление в пищу диких животных, охоту на них и незаконное разведение и торговлю, говорится в заявлении правительства города.

"Вводится полный запрет на потребление в пищу диких животных и продуктов из них, запрет относится ко всем наземным животным, в том числе включенным в государственный перечень охраняемых животных, включенных в перечень животных, имеющих важную экономическую или научную ценность, животных, которые растут и размножаются в природных условиях, а также на диких животных, выращенных человеком", - говорится в документе.
Значит ли это, что бедных животных не будут убивать подпольно, т.е. незаконно?
И как быть с несчастным кошкам, и собакам которых сотнями отлавливают, и забивают прямо на рынках, не ужели этот закон на них не распространяется?
Чем общественность может помочь в данной ситуации?

`
Можно ли вообще повлиять на этот закон?


Прошу откликнутся всех неравнодушных людей, которых как и меня беспокоит садистское отношение к животным. Мне не понять, как можно ходить по рынку, и вместо рыбы выбирать на ужин(к примеру) кошку, или собаку, причем как бы кощунственно это не звучало, животных разделывают на глазах у клиентов🙄🙄🙄
Закончится ли это живодерство когда нибудь?
Или гастрономические пристрастия возьмут верх, над человечностью и милосердием по отношению к беззащитным животным?

Предлагаю сегодня, поговорить о хорошем. Мы проснулись, на улице весна и светит солнышко. Кругом зелень и цветы. Вот и первый повод для радости. Открываем комп, самое первое, что увидела- заметку Лилии о медсестре в купальнике. Посмеялась и вспомнила, как недавно попалось на глаза видео. Врач их Мексики, в роддоме, перед роженицами включал музыку и начинал танцевать и они вместе с ним , тоже танцевали и в хорошем расположении духа, легко рожали деток. Вот и мы ,давайте будем, дарить друг другу радость и хорошее настроение.

How do you I know if i am wasting my time or not


Have you ever asked yourself, “Am I Wasting my youth”? If not, then you are probably not asking yourself the right questions. It is actually quite easy to know. Ask yourself – ‘Are you doing the MOST important things; that you could be doing or are you wallowing in moods, temptations and distractions’?

There are distractions galore in this ever advancing world. Some are obvious while most are cleverly concealed for the understanding of a brain which is 15 to 35 yrs old. Most of us give in to those distractions & temptations just as easily as they come into our lives.

Stop. Take a moment. And think about what I am writing next 
“If what you are doing is not taking you TOWARDS your Life Goals, it is taking you AWAY from them.”

Give this statement a hard thought and find out 5 things you do on a regular basis that are taking you nowhere. And with the limited time we have in our lives, to work on our purposes, wouldn’t it be a shame – to have wasted away most of it, gambled it away for pleasures that are momentary, ephemeral and addictive too? Social Media, Mobile Phone, Selfie addcition, Friends & their issues, Relationship issues & addictions, laziness, day dreaming, TV addiction to irregular sleep habits – the habit traps are many. How to get rid of bad habits- the practical way?

`


People of my age and beyond know the tremendous power youthfulness has. Having lived through it, we realize in retrospect – what amazing things we could have achieved, if only we had rerouted our focus locus to a more disciplined path. And that’s why I write this blog post. Don’t do the mistakes that your fathers repent. Youth is a wonderful time to be alive, to kill yourself working out of your comfort zone, to achieve your most huge-ass dreams. Sitting and whiling away your life won’t do it. Getting up and taking action would.

Youth is that time when you are mostly attachment free, there are not many family & money responsibilities, and you can afford to fall and learn. It is that time where you can get lost, lose yourself and then find yourself back too. But most of the youth I meet / talk to as a Motivational Speaker and Trainer, haven’t even stepped out of their comfort zones, they haven’t even started walking. All they do is – give in to the pseudo pleasures they have found by aping the western culture to the hilt. Reminds me of those lines –

(You will find your way eventually, even if you make a few detours. The truly lost are those who haven’t left the confines of their homes)

I want to tell everyone who is reading – BE AFRAID !!

Yes. I am asking you to be afraid. But of falling into the wrong traps, of wasting away this one shot at achieving your dreams. But never of failure. Every failed attempt will be a feedback. But you won’t be making those attempts if you are being too addicted to GOTs, BBs, GAs, F.R.I.E.N.D.S and hundreds of other sitcoms. And if you have to really watch them, take back inspiration, not addiction. Whatever you do, whichever habits you pick, move towards becoming invincible, unbeatable and just super-duper amazing. Strive to be the top of your field, be the expert in your area of expertise – not in partying away till wee hours of the morning and then going to work too hungover to feel the beauty of life lived in full senses.

I see so many young people – simply waiting for the weekend to drink and party away their exhaustion. How does that even work? You are not treating your sorrows. You are just handling them by keeping them at bay so that they come back more forcefully to you – next Monday. It is like numbing the pain, not treating it. Painkillers don’t make your pain disappear. They just make you forget there is pain. Don’t live your youth like you are constantly high on pain meds. They will make you an addict. Not successful, not brilliant – just an addict. To a lifestyle that is not doing justice to your being human.

The realm of the physical is not the only battleground where youngsters end up losing the time of their lives. The emotional plane is a battlefield of its own kind. Which is much more difficult to be fought. The country is currently trying to start the debate of depression, we are trying to get people to open up and speak about their never-ending grief.

But the question is – why do you have this grief? Sadhguru Vasudev Jaggi says, “If you are depressed, it means that you are generating a large amount of emotions and energy but in the negative direction.” Why would you want to live with that? That’s why this debate is important. If you find that you are grief-struck (not just sad) constantly and for smallest of reasons – please speak up. More often than not, a little support will help. But please don’t let the most precious days of your lives go up in smoke because you cannot manage your brain signals – especially when managing them isn’t that difficult.

Another aspect is that of relationship addiction. Sitcoms, movies, philosophies from people who should ideally be not allowed to talk at all – have led young people into believing that being in love with someone is an integral part of life. They couldn’t be more wrong. Why would you feel complete when you find a better (or bitter) half only? If you want love to be the guiding force of your life, don’t look for it in just one relationship. Make it the lens with which you view the world. Make it the most important philosophy of your world view. Be loving to everyone in your family and friends. Be loving to yourself, your goals, your dreams. And love with abandon, without care. But not carelessly. Love your life enough to do the right things, not give into the temptations of wrong things.

Have a massive love affair with your own life. And make that the best of your relationship. Love is a beautiful foundation. Why look for it in just one type of relationship?

In the trance of youth, people give so much time into these relationships, there isn’t much time left to make this world a better place by their unique contribution. Don’t be an addict. If you have found someone, awesome. Do not centre your life on that relationship but. The two of you look at a third thing together and create wonders out of it. If you haven’t found someone, that’s absolutely fine too. You continue being the breeze of awesomeness and the right kind of love will find you.

Point is – never lose sight of your purpose, no matter what trials and tribulations life puts you through. It is your job to learn from them and move on. Don’t insult your human intelligence by wasting your life moping over your sorrows. People argue that it is one life only. Why not have fun and enjoy. Exactly my bargain! This is one life. Now that you have tried waywardness and indiscipline, why not try discipline and see – which works better for you.

When I ask someone what they are doing and they say, “Time Pass”, I cringe. 24 hours – same 24 hours every genius got and every loser got. The difference – the world knows those geniuses. And we all know a few losers as well ( … don’t become one of those losers. Time pass = time fail !!!

Discipline may not be the rosiest of things. But it is your word, your promise to yourself. And what kind of a person are you, if you can’t keep a promise you made to your own self? I deeply admire those young people who are committed to their passions. It needs discipline and a Himalayan will power to be laser sharp focused about – fitness, skills, intellect, achievements. Among the millions of snobbish, vain youngsters who know nothing but whiling away time in shallow pursuits, when I see a young boy / girl putting in all their heart and soul for becoming fitter, acquiring admirable skill sets by working hard and non-stop on their follies, or just changing the world with one act of kindness every day – I feel like there is still hope.

And I want to share that hope with the rest of you – who find it easy enough to just sit in front of the laptop, binge watch or go on sitcom marathons and devote all their time to the Internet. Please don’t do the easy. There is swaad in it. But not fruits. Instead choose the right. The pride that you are looking to see in the eyes of your loved ones will come when there is ferocity in your run towards your goals. To become the cheetah who outruns the lamb, you first need to stop being the lamb.

You are right. It is just one life. And at the end of the day, it is your choice as to how you want to spend your limited, crucial time here. But then – do learn to live with the consequences of those choices as well. If you choose temptations, learn to live with failure. If you choose right action, enjoy the exhilaration of 100% attempt, if not success!

In your heart; you know it well that your life is meant for something much more. Something much bigger than the mundane trivialities which are hijacking your neural framework & engineering it towards mediocrity and eventually failure. Isn’t it scary that –‘Your whole life could turn out to be mediocre or waste’?

Darling ! Stop day dreaming or chasing the latest toys. Live Well. One Life. And it is YOURS only, not someone else’s.

When you were betrayed . . .


When you were betrayed

Without going into details. After marriage. When you fulfill your mission as a man at home. You have worked to improve the comfort of the home. You do another job in addition. To have more comfort. To have more money. You come home later. And in return the woman deceives you because you are absent at home. While you make efforts. She takes advantage of this situation. No one would put up with this situation. So come the divorce. And everything turns against you. Because the law is against men and is for women. You lose everything. women  . children. House. car . etc ... Not afraid. I decide to start over. Always want to believe it. Want to believe in true love. We take the bull by the horns and recharge the batteries. Ready for another adventure. I try a second time. After a few years, the same thing (again). You re-lose everything again. After that ,

`
Do you still want to live with a woman ??? Would you still trust a woman ???



While some people tell me that I have only 10% response rate. Others tell me. What if I have no money. I can simply look for a woman of my country. If I do not know maintain a women is. Who are they you to tell me this.? These people do not know why I can no longer bear free wickedness. These people. did she experience what i experienced. These people. Do not know what I experienced here. Why I want to leave this shit country ....
Those who still believe that money makes happiness. They only create problems.

Language sharing & expectations


This is a question for both men and women on the topic of language sharing. This is not a topic intended to be judgmental, but to better inform people who have an interest in the topic. I see many women who either do not list another language on their profile, or list other languages as "Basic (1)". This worries me, because communication is absolutely essential for any relationship, and it can take a long time to become functional in another language. It's very difficult and so easy to surrender, I find. This can be devastating for a relationship.

For the women, how do you intend to converse and have a relationship with a person with whom you don't share a language? I have encountered a few women who seemed to have no intention to learn another language and this perplexed me - how would such a person integrate into a new country? If this hasn't been considered, what brought you to an international dating site? Has enough thought been given to the implications of foreign dating? And is it important that your man learn your language, as well?

`


Men, can you share your experience with someone when you met someone who did not share a language? Or are you even willing to meet someone who needs a translator? Are you willing to learn Russian or Ukrainian? I see this as an important step to help your future partner feel like she's not totally alienated from her culture. I have found that it's possible to communicate with the help of electronic devices, but there are enormous difficulties with this, and noticed that using translators doesn't help you learn another language at all. I found that I wasn't too excited to try again, either. Contrarily, I found that basic knowledge of Russian vocabulary, pronunciation and expressions really livened up conversation with women who speak English.

I'm curious to hear your opinions on the subject.

Hypergamy


Hypergamy is the only reason why this site exists. As it is commonly known, women will only "marry up" in order to improve their social status. Therefore, they look for a future-husband in a richer country than their own. From a man´s perspective, living in such a richer country, does it make sense to get married to such a - very attractive yet materialistic - woman? Probably, her search to even rise higher in social status won´t stop when she got married, so there is a big risk for husband #1 to get dumped for a "better" (richer or better looking) man. Marriage is always a financial risk for men, not for women. So, what do you guys think, should a man get married to a woman from a poorer country?

Marry Indian, save Russia


Marry Indian, save Russia

Author Maria Arbatova feels Indian bachelors should be imported into Russia as they seem to be ideal spouses.

Indian men promise to be the ideal spouses for Russian women, affected as they are by a high male death rate owing largely to unhealthy lifestyles. That is the opinion of Maria Arbatova, leading Russian feminist author and prominent television presenter.

"The import of eligible bachelors from India is my big geopolitical idea," she told RIA Novosti news agency.

India can be of help now that Russia has come to grips with its formidable demographic problem, Arbatova said during the launch of her latest book A Taste of India at the 20th Moscow International Book Fair recently.

"First, both Russians and Indians are Indo-Europeans, and we speak related languages - just look at the many similarities between Sanskrit and modern Russian vocabularies. Second, and even more important, the archetypal Indian man is a fanatic paterfamilias. To raise many children is his cherished dream, and he makes the best possible husband," remarked Arbatova, who is married to Sumeet of West Bengal in eastern India.

`


Attracting Indian bachelors to Russia should be a government policy, she argues, or Russia will soon have two crosses to bear - one of its own male deaths and the other of the Chinese birth rate.

"Asian Russia, from the Pacific coast up to the Urals, is full of Chinese men anxious to marry Russian girls. If the Chinese are not promptly balanced out, no matter by whom - Indians, Africans or extra-terrestrials, either Asian Russia will become a Chinese province before 2050 or Chinese will become Russia's second official language," she jokes ironically. "Just look, Russia has two employment agencies in China, and none in India. Shame!"

Arbatova's book went on sale last spring and was on the bestseller list in summer. Britain's International Biographical Centre of Cambridge has awarded her its 20th Century Outstanding Achievement gold medal.

The author points out many similarities between Russian and Indian life.

"Socialism got my country out of the Big Game for 70 years. Colonialism did the same to India for two centuries. Both nations are now getting back to their sources in the age of globalisation. That's hard to do - like walking home inside a centrifuge," she says.

Финансовый ИНТЕРЕС....


Доброго времени суток!!
В этом посте, я не буду извинятся за свои взгляды, и мысли т.к. у каждого есть свое мнение, и оно может быть весьма октуально в отдельно, конкретном случае.
Дорогие форумчане, этот пост я пишу исходя из общения, и задаваемых вопросов, которые я получаю ежедневно от заграничных "принцев" ...некоторые прямо предлогают свою финансовую помощь, некоторых возмущает сам факт того, что заграничные курорты переполнены русскими красавицами, открыто предлагая свои услуги и прелести за финансовое вознаграждение.
Скажу прямо, я не берусь, и не преследую обсуждение моральной стороны этого вопроса. Я не Бог, и нет желания кого то судить. Я лишь делюсь своим мнением.
На мой взгляд, эти женщины действительно заслуживают "особого" внимания. Они несомненноя яркие, видные, интересные собеседницы, великолепные любовницы, имеющие за плечами хорошее образование, некоторые из них владеют несколькоми иностранными языками, у кого то даже есть дети, муж. Они весьма интересные личности на мой взгляд. ...это я ставлю в противовес тем кто говорит, что мол " я не така", а когда дело касается передвижений , то сразу возникают проблемы с деньгами, мол не готова, сильно потратилась и т.д, и т.п))...дескать вот если ты оплатишь расходы на билеты, то я приеду)))...(смешно ей Богу) Какого хрена спрашивается, ты пишешь о своей самостоятельности, и независимости.

`
Думаю, женщин которых интересует финансовые дела жениха достаточно не только в россии, но и во всем мире, и на всех континентах. Просто кто то говорит об этом прямо, что вызывае уважение за такую прямоту, и честность. А кто то пытается, хитростями залесть, и усесться поудобнее на шее у своего загроничного жениха)))


Ясное дело, получается не у всех😂😂
Дорогие мужчины, не стесняйтесь высказывайте свое мнение по этому вопросу, оно будет крайне октуально. Также с любопытством буду ждать коментарии особо ПРЕМУДРЫХ леди, чей жизненный опыт позволяет, делать выводы.
В любом случае тема весьма актуальна в современных реалиях.👌

EFFECTIVE WAYS OF LEARNING A LANGUAGE


Since there is great interest in this topic, I'll gladly share my experience with you.
Obviously going to the country and really exposing yourself to the environment is the top choice, but who has time (and money) for this, plus the constraints of lockdown, government restrictions and quarantine?

So here come a few workable options that have proven very useful:

1) Offer a language exchange on an equitable basis, i.e. the same amount of time in one language for the same amount of time in the other (e.g. 45 min of English for 45 min of Russian). There are plenty of websites for that. Here's just one example [http://cafetalk.com] you can easily search others. Skype in combination with powerpoint works like a charm.

2) Find someone in your area for real life lessons. Russian and English speaking people can be found in every corner of mother earth and start a 1-1 private tutorial. The advantage: you can completely adjust to the person, their wants & expectations and the learning situation.

`


3) Join a speaking club. In many places you will find culture clubs, language centres or rotary clubs that promote the respective language you seek. Keep an open eye on those and you will progress and often experience good food on top!

4) Check for package tours that offer INTENSIVE QUALITY courses. This is the most expensive and most time-consuming option when it comes to preparation, but it yields the greatest results within a relatively short time span (certainly when travelling is allowed and possible again).

Good luck with all your efforts and stay healthy!

Иностранный жених, или россиянин.


Приветствую вас мои дорогие!
Сразу прошу прощение у тех, кого мои мысли, и взгляды могут обидеть.
Я недавно зарегестрировалась на этом сайте, но он не единственный на котором я разместила свою анкету. Дело в том, что у меня совсем нет недостатка в мужском внимании, просто долгие годы не могу встретить человека который пришелся бы по душе, во всех смыслах этого слова. С иностранными женихами общаюсь давно, они производят впечатление голантных и воспитанных мужчин, наши парни на их фоне выглядят немного нелепо...но все же хочется сказать пару слов в их защиту. Я родилась на кавказе, живу в курортном городке Пятигорске, работаю на государственной службе, и меня все устраивает)) Мужчины у нас может, и не очень голантные, но зато ответственные, приятные, симпотичные, темпераментные, щедрые, и после ссоры подарки не забирают, да и не судятся с женщинами, это не в нашем минталитете, они более смелые, романтичные, плюсов достаточно. Да и судовольствием одарят подарками, ту чье сердце хотят завоевать. У наших мужчин много достоинств, и чем больше общаюсь с мужчинами из других стран, убеждаюсь в этом еще больше.

`
Иноземные джентельмены в основе своей ищут бюджетных дам, потому как у соотечествениц требования, и запросы большие. Что бы соответствовать их запросам, это надо не один десяток лет работать, стараться)))


Вот, и думается...стоит ли вообще искать любви, ласки и заботы в чужих краях? ....я уже не говорю о том, какие проблемы возникают при смене места жительства, проблемы с визой, с работо( это вообще отдельная история. Здесь то, хоть все понятно, диплом, работа, заработная плата-пусть не такая высокая как в европе. Кому нужны наши дипломы "за бугром"?) Это ж головная боль какая, и где гарантия, что иностранный принц в один день не станет жестоким тираном.
Буду ждать ваших отзывов, не стесняйтесь, пишите.
С уважением к вам Марьяна.

Sponsoring


Good afternoon  . Could somebody please tell me what 'I seek sponsoring' actually means when on a ladies profile?

Да себя больше любят, дорожат собой и ценят, чем каждого из вас...


Это будет самый правдивый пост, который я когда-либо писала...
Вас любят, пока вас удобно любить... Вами дорожат, пока вы чего-то стоите... Вас не оставят, пока в вас нуждаются... С вами будут, пока с вас есть что взять... Вы думаете вас любят, вами дорожат, вас ценят?! Да себя больше любят, дорожат собой и ценят, чем каждого из вас... Все клятвы и обещания, что были когда-то вам сказаны, это лишь просто слова... много ли вам обещали!? Много ли из них было исполнено?! Вам будут врать в глаза, нагло и без зазрения совести как вы дороги, а после выкинут к старому хламу, забыв как вас даже звали... Люди любят болтать, любят чесать языками, а сказать что-то и не выполнить, для людей это как два пальца об асфальт... Хлебушком не корми, но дай надурить на все 200% того, кто верит им на все 100%...

"Я соскучился..."


Иногда достаточно одной его фразы "Иногда достаточно одной его фразы "я соскучился", чтобы внутри всё расплавилось и забылись все мелкие колкости/пакости,чтобы страсть вспыхнула с новой силой...но если раны слишком глубоки, то никакие слова не смогут заживить эти раны. Выздоровление будет очень медленным...", чтобы внутри всё расплавилось и забылись все мелкие колкости/пакости,чтобы страсть вспыхнула с новой силой...но если раны слишком глубоки, то никакие слова не смогут заживить эти раны.

«Кошки - мышки»


Сейчас я уже не сделаю выбора в пользу того, кто «щекочет мне нервы», «делает мозги» и «проверяет на прочность». По-моему, такие игры в «кошки - мышки» до поры, до времени. Однажды ты осознаешь, что сыта этим по горло и тебе от мужчины хочется чего-то другого. «Взрослости», например, адекватности, умения и желания подарить тебе здoровые эмоции без всех этих обязательных атрибутов мудaчества...
