Do It Yourself Introductions - Don't Do It!

CHOOSING THE BEST ROMANCE TOUR OPERATOR!

No matter which website you visit, inevitably you are going to see the claims - We are the best, the biggest, the greatest! How do you decide whom to trust? How do you sort through the "puffing" and get to the facts?

There are a number of factors you should consider when choosing a company to assist you on one of the most important searches of your life. Below we list 10 points or features that differentiate us from the rest.

Before deciding, always conduct some type of independent research of the company; call past tour clients, check their reputation on the web using forums or news groups, ask friends, check with the Better Business Bureau. Be confident that what they are telling you is actually true, and actually what you will receive!

VALUE - A Foreign Affair offers the most comprehensive Romance Tour in the industry today. You will not find more services at a better price anywhere - Below is a partial list of what you will receive during your tour:

THE SOCIALS - A Foreign Affair's Socials have earned the reputation of being the best in the industry among both men and the foreign women. We spend more money on our Socials than anyone in the industry - bar none!

  • Highest ratios of women to men
  • Private, invitation-only Socials
  • Different women attending each Social during the tour
  • Due to jet lag and other considerations, such as our longer tour lengths, and to allow you the best opportunity to follow up with all contacts, all European socials are held every other day, as opposed to back-to-back-to-back
  • Fully catered with superb food, champagne, soft drinks, etc. You are never asked to purchase food or drink for women during a Social as do virtually all other companies

  • You assist in the selection of the women attending the Socials
  • You receive a master list of the women who have been personally called twice and confirmed for the Social.
  • Every woman is screened and checked in at the door
  • You are never forced to move or talk to women you are not interested in. You are encouraged to speak to as many different women as possible, as most men will eventually marry someone they never wrote to or invited to the socials.

HOSPITALITY SERVICE - A Foreign Affair is the only company to operate full time offices in all of its tour cities, normally right in your hotel, providing you with a much higher standard of service during your tour!

  • Full-service hospitality room open from 9 am to 8 pm, with special staff to cater to all of your needs

  • Opportunity to meet women who are just beginning the process of finding their special someone

PROFESSIONAL INTERPRETERS - A Foreign Affair only employs highly qualified, professional interpreters to assist you during your tour (keep in mind that many of the women can and do speak English!)

  • Free interpreter service during the Socials as well as in the hospitality room
  • Meet all the interpreters at the Interpreter Meeting hosted the first night
  • Choose one interpreter to be your private, personal interpreter, or use multiple interpreters (we always recommend using at least two interpreters for a more objective picture, but it's your choice)

AFTER YOUR TOUR - We are available for on-going advice and support after your tour has finished, from both the tour-city office and our corporate US-based office.

  • Due to our fully staffed offices you can extend your stay after the tour leaves, or re-visit the city on your own, and still have the same great support that you enjoyed while the tour was there.
  • Free on-going advice regarding any issue: Fiancee Visas, return trips, relationship concerns etc., etc.

Two Foreign Sweethearts

Maria is a beautiful woman of Colombia.

As you know, children can be one of life's greatest rewards.  Certainly, you shouldn't rule-out any prospective foreign bride just because she is childless, for together you could do something about that.  But neither should you exclude her just because she already has children, for together you could form an instant family!  That could benefit you in several ways.  Consider having two, or more, foreign sweethearts. 

An intercultural relationship may not be for everyone.  Yet, if you will invest the necessary time, effort and money into a relationship, and be reasonably flexible, tolerant and patient, your chances of finding happiness with a foreign bride are good.  Whichever path you choose, our wish for you is that your journey will be pleasant and that you will find, in life, everything that you seek.

International Introduction Service Q & A

Foreign Courtship Advice and Recommendations From the Editors of A Distant Light™

Q: To a prospective foreign bride who doesn't specify an age preference, how much of an age difference might customarily be acceptable? 

A: Surveys have shown that when considering age apart from other factors, 98 to 99 percent of single Ukrainian women and single Russian women seeking marriage would readily accept a partner as much as ten years their elder.  The rate of such ready acceptance among women of the former Soviet Union declines to 50 percent as age disparity increases to 15 years. 

In predominantly Buddhist cultures of the Far East, as for example in Thailand, elder persons are revered for their accumulated wisdom.  So, some of the single Asian women seeking marriage, in particular, might accept or even welcome somewhat greater age disparities. 

For an international introductions agency to promote so-called May–December romances might be good for business, in the short term, but would it be good for you?  For the prospective foreign bride?  Around here, we believe that what's best for business is the long-term success of your intercultural relationship.  So, rather than encourage a fifty-year-old man to pursue, say, Colombian single women in their twenties, or a man of forty to chase single Latin women still in their teens, we would respectfully suggest that you listen to your own voice of reason and common sense. 

If you don't fully recognize the value in this, you might find it helpful to read A Long Way to Go for a Date, by Henry Makow.  The outcome of Mr. Makow's real-life personal adventure may surprise you.  Find it listed under Foreign Bride Resources, below.)

Foreign Bride Resources

A foreign sweetheart is more likely to become the foreign bride of a gentleman who demonstrates an interest in, and some knowledge of, her native culture.  A Lonely Planet ® Travel Survival Kit™ (right sidebar) can be helpful.  Besides the practical advice for travelers, they provide some historical background and discuss relevant social, political and economic aspects of modern society.

"Relationships are like Rome – difficult to start out, incredible during the prosperity of the 'Golden Age' and unbearable during the fall.  Then a new kingdom will come along and the whole process will repeat itself – until you come across a kingdom, like Egypt, that thrives and continues to flourish.  This kingdom will become your best friend, your soul mate and your love."

Astrud Gilberto's Finest Hour  (Verve)
Hear Astrud Gilberto's music now, at Amazon.com!

    This popular American singer and songwriter of German and Brazilian descent is admired by generations of music lovers everywhere.  Her name is practically synonymous with the bossa nova style of her native Brazil, and her endearing voice can be one of the most seductive on the planet. 
    Yet, there is more to be said of this remarkable woman, of which you may have been unaware.  She is also a talented graphic artist.  Through sales of the reproductions and prints of her original artworks (which can make unforgettable gifts, especially when signed by the artist herself), she supports efforts to protect animals from mistreatment. 
    Please see the charming (if, at times, necessarily intense) Web pages that have been created, with love, by this profoundly beautiful human being, 

–––––––—Ms. Astrud Gilberto—–––––––


[The Editors of A Distant Light™ are privileged to express our appreciation of Ms. Gilberto and her work.  Ms. Gilberto is not a participant in our service.]
