When I was talking to my future hubby over the phone for the first time, he told me that one day I should write a book about my life. Why? - I asked surprisingly and thought that the guy was whether insane or just considered that to be a good way to make a girl fall for him. Me? Writing a book? That's ridiculous, to say the least. He told me that my life seemed to him so interesting that I should definitely do it and then he started explaining every single detail of why he thought that was a good idea. The more he said the more I started to realize that my life did have a lot of moments worth sharing: I was born in one place, moved to another, ended up studying in the United States and all that was filled with different moments, wonderful people and unforgettable memories. That was also the day when I learned from him what seems to remain my life's motto: sky is the limit (dear ladies, this is a very popular expression in America, which means basically that you can achieve as much as you wish in this life, there's no limit, no boundaries – just your desire to do so). I have to say that after living in the United States with my beloved husband for some time I actually started to think that there's nothing in life you can't have if you really want it. We've been married with Greg for a little more than two years and I have to admit I still didn't write a book, but I decided to start with little things like having my own blog – I'm going to write about my life abroad, my international marriage, difficulties of being a foreigner, happy moments of my life and funny situations I get into. To cut a long story short, I am going to write about everything that might be of any interest to Russian women for marriage and western men who try to find happiness on this website. Oh, I forgot to introduce myself - my name is Betsy, I'm a brunette, 31 years old, I live almost same amount of time in one of the most average American cities in the Midwest and close to the capital of Russia, Moscow. And I'm extremely happy:) The reason for the latter is my friend, my soul mate, handsome and a smart man who always (well, almost) understands me – my American husband. I've lived in Russia all my life and have never met a guy who even remotely makes me feel the way Greg does, that's why I decided to encourage my fellow Russian women who are looking for marriage not to eliminate the possibility of marrying a foreigner. With all the difficulties, like language barrier, long distance traveling, leaving far from your family, it is still rewarding if you find the right person. I was always convinced that there are not too many people you can fall in love with and before there was an internet I was afraid that my soul mate might live somewhere far away and I would have to choose my husband among local guys living in my small town. However, favorable fate granted me with a chance to travel a lot, compare what I like about different countries and different nations and find a man who as I predicted lived far away. For all those men who are looking for Russian women for marriage, I will try to provide as much useful information as possible, like, what is it that we, Russian women, like and what is it that we don't; how to make us happy and how to behave on the first date; are we really that different from women in your country etc.? I know that I have lots of thoughts at the moment that I want to share with you, but this is just the beginning of my numerous stories which will hopefully be useful on your way to having a happy marriage and filling your life with joy and eternal happiness. I wish you to find your significant other in the very near future!!!
