H ave you ever heard of marriage agency http://www.eslava.com.ua in Kiev?
I believe that they scammed me and that the girls are receiving a commission to meet men who travel to Ukraine. I was scammed by the girl that I met through them although they claim on their website to be scam-free. Also their manager never asked me for feedback about the dates that I had or what feedback the girls gave them.
Getting scammed in restaurant dates
I was scammed in restaurant dates…not that the bills in each restaurant were expensive, on the contrary they were reasonable but I noticed that each time we went to the restaurant and right before the waiter comes to give the menu, the girl was excusing herself to go to the bathroom to check her make-up.
Nothing wrong with this but considering that she was taking rather too long to come back, so we can place our orders, I was a little suspicious that she was certainly making any deals behind my back in the kitchen with the restaurant manager.
On the 3rd date I told her that I will chose the restaurant myself. That time she did not do the usual scenario of disappearing to the ”bathroom” at all.
She was not happy about something and I could tell that she did not like that I chose the restaurant and that she won’t be getting this time her share of the deal.

Posh places for the first dates with Ukrainian girls
On the first date, the agency manager took me to the restaurant to wait for the girl to arrive for the date. The restaurant looked really posh. I told the manager that I hope that this place is not too expensive.
I asked her who selected the restaurant and she said she did herself for both me and the lady I was waiting for for the date because the restaurant is closer to where my apartment has been booked. The Ukrainian girl arrived for the date and we were introduced and then the manager left.
On the next day I told the girl that the food at the restaurant where we had our first date was really lovely. She replied she had chosen the restaurant herself for us because it is a good place. I told her that the manager told me that she was the one who had chosen the restaurant.
I asked what the card was and she said it is a discount card. On the last day because she was really looking very pale and tired with an irritated skin, she needed to buy some cream for her face at a beauty shop. We went there and she piked a French brand in regards to the facial cream.
To be a gentleman and because she was not well that day and that her skin was really irritated, I offered to buy the cream for her… about 30 Euros.
She opened her bag to look for a discount card and as she opened it, I noticed a bunch of about 50 cards in her bag. I asked her why she has so many cards and she said that they are discount cards that she collects. Very very strange.
