Sorry, but this is SO wrong. Except in some very RARE instances: A. You cannot "fall in love" or know if someone is right for you from a picture. B. Picking a wife from a picture is BEYOND shallow - we are talking shallow plus 10 here. It is also pathetic. Dating, fine. Wife, no way. Unless, of course, you are a masochist. C. Marrying someone without knowing them and dating them for at least 1 year is ASKING for trouble and is basically masochistic behavior expressing a lack of self-confidence and self-esteem. D. With all the online dating sites and woman to chose from, the fact that you cannot find "what you are looking for" even though you are an "attractive guy" is a red flashing light. Suggests either (1) you are NOT all that attractive, either physically or in your personality, (2) you are socially inept, (3) "what you are looking for" is unreasonable or shallow or creepy or odd, and/or (4) you have some other issues. Picking a russian bride is not going to magically make this go away or change - woman are woman, whether russian, asian or whatever. E. Picking a russian bride and your mention of how much you earn suggests that you are so creepy (or think you are so creepy) that the only way you can get a quality woman is if she is desperate for material security - only you aren t sure if $40,000 is sufficient material security to buy you the wife you want. And we are talking about buying and controlling here, not love. Again, big mistake. You can t buy love. And if you are wanting the possessive control, that s just creepy and abusive. My advice: (1) If you have some good friends you can trust to be honest with you, talk to them and ask them to tell you honestly what they think of your plan, your attractiveness to women, your social behavior, husband potential, dating issues, etc. Write down or record what they say and DON T GET ANGRY or make comments other than to encourage them to explain any statements, instead just listen, be encouraging and thank them afterwards for their honesty. Then give yourself time to get objective and listen to the recording or read the notes again a few days later. (2) Get some counseling to help work out your issues, whatever they may be. If you have behavioral issues, try cognitive behavioral therapy - it works. The world would be a better place if everyone did this. (3) Try some local dating services and instead of looking for Ms. Perfects, just look for some Ms. Reasonably Attractives and get out there and date, because practice makes perfect. (4) Follow Gentlemen s example and really get to know any potential mate first. If you are an abusive controlling creep, I hope you eat **** and die and that none of these girls gets sucked into your web and bad cess to you. If you really are basically a good guy, I hope it all works out for the best and good luck to you.
