I’m sure if I saw your female partner I wouldn’t even look twice at them, so there’s that. Thanks for playing though
    Well, I claim to be on Tinder in another thread behind her back so maybe you have a point. She's at least 18 inches taller than you so you probably would look twice like all the bald midgets do (moreso out of jealousy and cursing their bad DNA).

    I dunno man. A white guy with an Asian fetish who doesn't mind small tits and incredibly high pitched weird orgasm noises hits the jackpot in Japan.

    Guys who go after Cubans and bring them to Canada have to be the dumbest of the bunch. I know a guy who should have the word sucker tattooed across his forehead and he did exactly this. Guess how that turned out. These are the types who start the MRA and incel movements.

    You sure do have standards for someone who can't get a date without leaving the country.

    Before going to the Ukraine I dabbled in the dating thing locally. Dated a pretty hot bartender. So all your analysis is incorrect. The real problem is I’m a sociopath and find it really hard to care for someone after the initial excitement wears off. Not something I choose and I have regrets w/my life choices, especially with my sons mother but I can’t change. Not a good way to go through life really but is what it is. It’s a genetic defect for sure and hopefully I didn’t pass it on to my son

    Have you considered the possibility that maybe getting married again isn’t a great idea for you?

    Of course. I know after the excitement period I’d honestly rather be alone. So marriage isn’t really something that fits with.
    The wrench though, is I want kids. I’m 40 now. If there’s one thing in life that I enjoy and I’m good at, it was being a dad. Outside of that I’m a total sociopath, My son goes off to college in less than 2 years though.

    So if the instant marriage thing doesn’t materialize, maybe I’d do those new age co-parent concepts. We’ll see

    I enjoy the periodic updates on your saga. You should definitely try to get on 90-day fiance.

    Has wife #2 been sent back to the motherland?

    Yeah I absolutely need a full rundown of the events with the mail order Russian wife.

    Did you get legally married? How long did it last? How many sexy times? Where is she now?

    No I married her so she could stay. I couldn’t bring myself to care about her but I’m not heartless. Actually she stayed past the 90 days without being married and I think she would’ve not been able to come back for like 5-10 years since she overstayed her visa. So I married her. Even though we’re divorced she gets to stay, Never even gave her a ring though.

    Yea, but even if you married her and she got a Green card, that is only good for 2 years (it is like probation) and then you have to remove conditions to get the 10 yr one. I thought if you got divorced etc and you are not supporting her within those two years, it is very hard to qualify for removal of conditions and get the 10 yr Green card..?

    Plus you missed one of Nick's questions..?

    Yes. Stayed living together well over a year but I was sleeping on the couch by the end of first month and so it was like roommate. She’s still here and is staying

    Yeah our understanding was you couldn’t get divorced before the green card. But you could... the process would’ve been a little more difficult though and she ended up switching her visa type to a work visa after we separated, which took me off the hook as the other way even if we were divorced I was responsible for her financially for 10 years if she ever got public assistance
