Dear Friends, Today, I would like to discuss a very controversial and hot issue, namely: whether most profiles on Anastasia International are fake and whether the agency pays the girls for registering on and chatting with Western men.I have asked by many readers what my thoughts are about that.There are also many negative reviews on Elena Models, Only Cute or Love Me. I guess the problem is the false expectations of Western men.They think if they register on a dating site like Anastasia and pay 100 dollars they will find a wonderful woman for marriage within a week.If this does not happen they feel disappointed and cheated.Many men write in Russian and Ukrainian women forum threads that the women have shown no interest during the first meeting.The founders, Elena and David Besuden were introduced by a service and 1992 and married.
The company began using catalogs in the early 90s and launched its first website in 1997 in Russia and the Ukraine.
According to Fortune, it experienced 220% growth in website traffic in 2012 and hired a new dating industry consultant as Chief Strategy Officer, Mark Brooks who claims the task of improving Anastasia Date’s reputation.
He also commented that the international online dating industry was on the cusp of respectability.
On the other hand, some compare it with a night in Las Vegas where you spend money hoping for greater gain but lose everything you came with, if not exhaust your bank account as well.
Shaun Walker, The Guardian reported, sees some of the women as being forced into emotional prostitution by their economic circumstances.
