Look and Feel
You have nothing to do on this site if your budget is tight. Anastasia was fun for me. It is a great way for a bunch of single American guys to meet lots of single foreign women in one night or during the week.
The tours are great, lots of dancing, dating the girls, etc etc. The tour that I have been to had a ratio of 10 women to each man. I was careful to begin with. My experience with scammers was minimal, ADATE made a good effort in screening out scammers and deleting them after being reported.
Good luck to you, guys. You can tell they are fake, because they give all generic information, no details, no stories, just fairytales about how their dreams came true.
This site is a joke. This is a joke. Sorry to hear of your experience. I will not defend AnastasiaDate…There are scam women in every country. They are fun to date, beautiful, and charming. You sound like a woman I write to.
I am not sure if you are not the one who write letters to men. I used it for more than year, it is totally garbage and useless, selling beauties and emotional prostitution!!
Anastasia Date pays the girls to show interest in you. Yes, they work for A. At best, it is a huge conflict of interest. I suppose if you just want your ego padded, then go to AD as every single woman will be interested in you the moment you sample the site.
Stick with the sites with the flat monthly small fees like LUckyLovers or Russian Cupid if you are serious about meeting real women. There, the profiles are simply made by the men and women themselves. No middleman in the communications between the men and women. Guys, my experience with Anastasiadate. However, a couple hours chat or a few letters exchanged is no more expensive than a typical date night in the US.
Anastasiadate is not a free dating site. However, guys, stop worrying about the price, service or fake profiles. To understand online dating, you must at least have some experience in this way of communication.
But suggesting that it will be a scam or something like that is pointless I think. First you try then talk about it. It will be very interesting that you come back here to tell us, after your travel: I was under no illusion about dating sites… I have had two divorces each cost over a million… I decided to look east. I joined anastasia and cute only. You have to give consideration for the fact that many men just come to play. Many girls are dirt poor.
I began going to ukraine 5 years ago and have been over 40 times. I exchanged letters with girls. I met 28 of them. Two of the 28 were as good as it gets. One told me after two weekends that while i am really nice i am too old. But she was a very good woman. By that time i had a circle of friends in kiev. I know her 4 years and we are together a year. I suspect in time she will come to the usa at least part time. She is without reservation the best girlfriend i ever had.
There is nothing easy about finding a girl… it is a person and the most important thing in your life. When i approached this i cut all dating in the usa. Ukrainians are traditional, there is a cultural difference but make no mistake they are also genuine and serious as well as fun loving people. I am very happy and both of the websites helped me get a foothold. My girlfriend herself was not on any site but I first met her girlfriend and because my girlfriend spoke better English she was often along… and by the way.
I also learned to speak russian. It is work, it costs time and money but i am for sure the lucky man of 53 with a top 28 year old girl who i am sure will be my best friend forever…. Anything worthwhile is not easy… Ukraine is a great country and has a people of a great culture if you allow the time to build trust… good luck.
Great for you Oliver. I too am moving to Ukraine, Kharkov to be exact. My girlfriend and I have both been back and forth across the Atlantic more than we can count over the past three years. I decided that since I am retiring next year and wanted to be closer to her that I would purchase an apartment in Kharkov, we she said she did not want me to spend all that money that we could just stay at her apartment, which by the way she owns.
She is a great woman, started out with 2 week trips to Ukraine, she would come to U. She never asked for anything, so I spoil her anyway. She never said she wanted to live in U. I am perfectly comfortable with living in Ukraine.
I in fact lived there for 6 months with her, 90 days in, 90 days out, then another 90 days. We grew tired of it and wanted to spend each day and night together.
I have no family ties back in the U. All my family is deceased and my daughter is finished college and moving on with her life, she only asks for me to pay her cell phone bill each month anyway LOL. My daughter actually encouraged me to move and she has been over to Ukraine and spent several weeks at a time with my girlfriend and I.
I am still learning to speak Ukrainian, as that is what my girlfriend speaks. It is difficult at first but with her help, minus a lot of laughing each night, we communicate just fine. She also takes English course and I help her with he home assignments and even went and was a guinea pig at her class a few times.
Anyway, the site was not a scam fro me, although when we first met, I wondered if she would even show us and in fact, she picked me up at the airport instead of meeting me at the hotel, so I knew I was safe with this woman. She is the greatest and I wish I had met her many years ago.
She is 33 and I am 45 but together we are like children who refuse to grow up. So, in my case I did not get scammed, so I am lucky. Have a great life Oliver.
A successful con site. The women join to boost their income by inviting foreign men to visit Ukraine,talk in a chat room on the dating site etc. The women love going out and helping you spend your cash, buy them a present and it will be sold or traded the moment you leave Ukraine!!
At least you get more honesty and less bull!! I signed up and sent messages to someone who called herself Anna. This went on for only 20 minutes before I got wise to what was really happening. I am definitely one of the lucky ones!!! There were delays in her responses, repeating the same questions multiple times to me and every other tactic to chew up the clock. I logged off and read more reviews that confirmed my experience. I finally found their customer service number of While this was going on, I was simultaneously online-chatting with a different rep trying to cancel my account.
This rep was far worse than the one on the phone by stalling, making excuses, refusing to commit to cancelling the account, etc.
I captured every word in that thread for my records. If you are genuinely looking for a wife, if you actually have enough money for this process, if you are prepared to travel to meet her, then, you could be successful. But you get what you pay for. The site Anastasia Date is a real shame …. The girls appearing in photographs often do not correspond to reality and we men think we are talking to them and we are talking to a computer, watching her photos.
Other times, the girls when they are to be online on chats try to convince men to get hours and hours on chat rooms because they receive a commission or percentage … More, the girls will say they want to have a meeting live in her country but the hour or inevitable happens, the mother or the child get sick, die cat, dog also …. When we complained to the service to consumers service, always give reason to the Ladies,,,obviously ….
If you want you can read this article of the British newspapper The Guardian http: I am not long so far on this site.. I think it will be easier for both of us to have a meaningful conversation.
And the girls are all so beautiful. She is well educated, cultured and she is the joy of my life. When we first met, communication was difficult, but we were patient and considerate with each other and taught each other how to speak and write. Each day our love grows stronger. We are the same age. She is my partner and my best friend.
Yet, we both know that our good luck is rare and unusual. This chance to find love is not for everyone. But I wish luck to everyone searching their love. Believe me — Russian girls are fantastic.
Any advice for me? By the way where are you? What is the age of you 2? I want give this site 4 stars because it is what it says it is.
Most of the features work for me quite well. I met here the person who was made for me. We came from similar families, had similar types of friends, had the same beliefs and views, and had similar dreams about our future. Thanks for my perfect match AnastasiaDate! But what is more important.. No lies and no cheats, just sincere info.
Girls are there for different tastes.. I have a rich experience — my wife is a Russian girl from a dating site. My tip if you interested in Russian or Ukrainian wife — go for a holiday and check it out but keep your wallet in your pocket until you are sure as there are scammers, but for the most part a Russian person will be far too Proud to ask for money out loud even if they NEED it as in their culture it is offensive to talk about money!
My wife is Ukrainian. I married a beautiful and intelligent woman and I am not trying to change her, because she would no longer be the one I married. Yes, I found her on a dating site and we happily live in my country. I want to tell everybody complaining about the scams on AnastasiaDate. I think you guys need to use common sense. Would you go to NYC to find a wife? Go to Tomsk or Omsk or Samara…anywhere but the big cities.
I have been very happy with my russian wife for 8 years. We have 2 children and life is good. I asked her to marry me the day after I met her.
If you complain they1 require standards of evidence only possible for law enforcement agencies 2 ban the user for supposed breach of their terms of service this includes reporting fraud to law enforcement!
On the quiet they cover up the evidence and distribute protocols to their ukraine agencies to avoid the method of discovery happening again. Currently contracts have been changed to ban girls making friends on vk or Facebook and gifts companies who subcontract are banned from printing messages containing emails. I think both experience recounted here are true and accurate. Maybe some men are lucky, but clearly there are some monetary incentives offered to the women for writing letters and chatting.
Anastasia support Putin aggression! As the only dating site I have found Anastasia have moved all Crimean cities from the country of Ukraine to Russia. Anyone can check this! I have sent several letters to Anastasia administration to ask why. The only answer I got is that they do not involve in the geopolitical situation.
This is infact what they really have done. By doing this they agree that the Russian military invasion and occupation of Ukraine territory is right. This is against what all the western world stands for. Any one that are a friend of democracy, freedom and human rights should boycott Anastasia! Please bring this message forward! Basically, Crimea is an occupied territory and is subject to the laws of Russia. This means that Visas, expected treatment, are going to be very different to visiting somewhere like Lviv.
In this respect, the site is letting users know that they are going to a place that is going to be like Russia, with current sentiment to the West. I do not think they are supporting Putin, they are too business focused for that. I believe the decision would have been made after men were asking or complaining that girls in Crimea are not as accessible as mainland Ukraine.
All of the sudden, they are out of town. I have a better luck staying in my own town to find a any descent one. Trip cost and site cost is unbelievable. I would like to share my opinion on Ukrainian girls. They are far more even tempered than American women and even if they are moderate gold diggers, they still meet their obligations to taking care of a man.
My girl is awesome. Save your money, put it away and save it. I think I am crazy. I wrote one girl on this site that I want to get married and think that it is can be possible! She was laughing a lot but accepted it. As soon as I get her.. Anastasia in not a free site. Well, yes, in my experience of online dating, free is definitely bad. Free sites are packed full with spammers and scammers and people looking just for sex. As for me, well, I think my experience of AnastasiaDate was typical.
I wrote her several emails, and she agreed to meet. I did unforgettable first date for us, from there on after we met we were together ever since. Somehow I doubt that any algorithm would have matched a nice Catholic boy like me with a russian woman who was raised jewish. But random massage on anastasiadate. That was 5 years ago.. I really believe them. Cause how definitely you can create some unreal words but not photos and videos I found. I saw the real emotions and after them I know I will have some luck to find my soulmate.
I was the happiest person in the world, when I met my honey Marina. Every single day like a paradise with her. My friend made few trips to Russia to meet his wife and every time he came back shining. After few months he proposed to her and convinced her to move in with him in Chicago. Just lonely men who think that just because a girl chatted with them for couple hours, she would welcome them in her life with open arms and give away all her contact details so they can stalk her good.
And when 19 year olds say they want me at 60 lol, I know something is very wrong. I wish it was true. In more than 10 years in business is not that strange?
So how long have you worked for them? I have real friends in Ukraine and I know a woman high up in the organization. I actually saw my friend, who shall remain nameless, supervising a whole room full of women pretending to be women on the site and laughing their collective asses off talking to men. Many happily married women work for them. They make money by keeping men chatting. I called 5 times from New Zealand and get one refund. I spent too much time and money to get the refund.
I think anastasia dating service i scam. When i tried to chat with lady live video or web cam i realized that same video was on last couple days. She is not typing she is playing with her hair. It was just discovered that Anastasia Date extorts at least one credit for every chat conversation, whether connection is made or not. Girls get paid to chat with men. A former employee from site, told me about the dark side of this site.
So you will be wasting your money, talking to translator instead of girls. I heard this same comment from 3 different girls. VK is the Facebook from ukraine, and all ladies like to put all their life in this site. You will find the truth there. But nothing really happens. I have been using Anastasia Date for a long time to look. I finally decided to pay and talk to a few ladies and finally went to meet one. I somehow found a way in to look at her pictures and one day I was able to see her site.
Made a nice comment about how dreams come true and the next thing I know, I am blocked. She gets online and says not to post and I said, I apologize, I thought it was like facebook, social site and I said only a good comment. I mentioned I was now blocked and could not see anything and she basically said she uses it for work. Why could she not just ask me not to post???? It was mostly about fashion, from what I could tell. I felt hurt because I felt like I did nothing wrong.
I was being nice. I was being positive. I never chatted with any lady until her. I wondered if they got paid to chat. I probably am being scammed. But what really hurts is I that I really liked the girl. I thought she was honest and real. She could be and I am over reacting. I have met some success stories. I do not want to judge anyone.
I just want to protect myself. I work very hard for the life I have. Ricky Van Shelton re-did a song called: That might be me.
Everything about them is bullshit and they never answer the difficult questions appropriately. Find us a US based law firm and we sue these assholes. Than I told her that from anastasia date and that I wanted to talk to her out side control environment. I got answer, yeah I remember but not that much and than, yes you are right and I was removed from her friends and no answer since than.
So option is there. Fernando you are completely right. I spent now 5 days in Odessa and 5 days in Kiev to meet with ladies — but 9 from 10 ladies were not available allthough they agreed to meet.
It is better to buy toilet paper for the money you spend at Anastasia. There are things very strange in this site.
People that speak advanced english need translation by agency to write few lines. They profile are build by a professional staff. I all nights speak with 3 ladies. I decided to fly to Ukraine. When i arrived to Kiev two of them are in the beach!!! They only exists to catch our Money.
Bewhare this site If you can, of course. Anastasiadate is paying girls to chat and for correspondence. You can read all about this scam in http: I am writing Emails to all sort of places, just so i can say I done everything to stop a other man to fall into the same trap. The major investor is some investor from New York, still working to get a name.
I think it is outrages that scam like that can happen in such magnitude and nobody does anything about it. Markus thank you for your posting. That thing where they say that you can remove the check mark that automatically makes you eligible to have money deducted from your CC is not true because as soon as you go to a different place in the site the check mark comes right back in the box automatically. I believe any judge in the US would find for the plaintiffs and that any District Attorney in the US would file on them.
Good luck to all finding your right one! To who might want to know. I was on anistatia for a little over 3 years. I was paying for the first lady about USD a month to chat with her and she seemed to lose interest in me so I lost interest in her. Then cam a lady that was going to cost me a quarter of what the other lady cost so I started talking to her.
She then was offline and I requested that I could talk to her. After a few days of riddles and stuff I figured out her riddle and found her on another sight.
Now the translator that had no contact with my so called feonce and I are friends. She showed me the vk. This sight scammed me along with many others that fell for it. Com was the one I was under but Diana aka lovelydiana was on anistatia. Com and a few others and they where just different names for one big sight. Hello Tony Curtis Since you live in Odessa , can I find a girl for marriage if I go to Ukraine , or is there any real company of marriage I can find a good girl there?
Anatasia date is just a legal way to scam men out of money. I was on site a few years ago and learned this, I went on again just recently to see and sure enough the same girls, you have to question their intent, but we all know it is a way for them to earn extra money. AnastasiaDate, RussianBrides, etc all use the same tactics to sell their girls that Microsoft uses to sell their Windows Operating System.
Mike November 2, The site is fake. John November 1, I would honestly spend your money on going to Ukraine and finding a lady in person!

Jeff October 6, Joe October 6, Greg September 8, Hi People, Yes it takes a while to work it out because most of us like to think we are irresistible or we go into the site because we are legitimately lonely looking for a partner OR we go in genuinely to do the right thing then we re instantly inundated by beautiful women saying nice things.
We forget so quickly about our dream and start living theirs… This site has been around for a long time because it knows the way to a mans heart — their ego..

Bradley September 10, Danny Pharrel September 14, Robin Terry September 10, Ronald Bennett July 10, Henry Benson July 9, Kevin Houdson July 6, James Dotty July 3, JMB September 30, With the growth of online services like AnastasiaDate, the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act was passed in to regulate the industry.
A girl on the site who was interviewed "explained the whole sordid array of techniques, from a light impersonalised online-chatting version to a full-service chauffeur-driven platinum fraud, where men are rinsed of cash for a full week in Odessa, thinking they are cementing a lifelong relationship while actually they are being strung along on platonic dates that end with them dispatched to the airport with heavy hearts and empty wallets".
Even acting within the regulations, international dating sites like AnastasiaDate could potentially exploit women in less-developed countries and male suitors in developed countries. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. AnastasiaDate Type of business Private Type of site.
