How Marrying a Ukrainian Woman Saved This Man’s Life
Are you a widower who feels hopeless about finding love again? Don’t worry. Perhaps your future partner is just waiting for you from across the continent.
Here’s one of our client’s success stories to prove it.
Dave is from New York, where he’s been living for the past 10 years. He grew up in L.A. and raised his children in Las Vegas. But because of his wife’s illness, they moved East to find better doctors.
Unfortunately, Dave’s wife eventually passed away from cancer, only 5 months after one of their daughters also passed away from the same life-threatening disease. He was so utterly devastated that he almost took his own life.
But as a religious man, he just couldn’t bring himself to do it.
Interestingly, Dave and his wife used to browse through the A Foreign Affair dating site and were amazed reading some of the testimonials of men and women who found lasting love through online dating. It wasn’t something she would get jealous about, but rather they enjoyed reading about and watching successful love stories and seeing people from different lands and cultures.
But because Dave had secluded himself for around a year after her death, one of his daughters convinced him to take a trip or travel, just so he could get out of his room.
At first, he didn’t want to go to just any regular tour where there would be other couples, making him miss his wife even more.
That’s when Dave finally took a leap of faith and joined one of AFA’s singles tours to Ukraine.
Initially, Dave wasn’t looking to go on a date during the tour since he just wanted to see and tour the sights in Kyiv. He also considered that he was a 60-year-old man and that it wasn’t realistic to date a much younger girl.
He also didn’t plan on joining the tour and socials in the next city, Poltava, but our matchmakers and staff convinced him to do so. And he is grateful that he did. Because it was at one of those socials that he saw a stunning woman sitting on the corner named Nina.
It was an unforgettable moment for Dave, and as cliché as it sounds, he believes it was love at first sight. “There was nobody else there. I felt like a 15-year-old boy in high school that had a crush on some girl.” he explained.
Dave’s interpreter encouraged him to talk to Nina, pointing to the sad look in her eyes. That’s when Dave realized that “she’s gone through something like what I’ve gone through.”
And Dave’s gut instinct was right because as he said hello and talked to Nina for 6–7 minutes with the help of the interpreter, he found out that Nina’s husband had also passed away from cancer. Coincidentally, it was about the same time when Dave lost his wife and daughter.
From their first encounter in Poltava, Dave and Nina continued to get in touch through social media and exchanging letters. Dave got to know Nina better and discovered she also had two daughters.
Dave couldn’t help feeling guilty as a widower and prayed to God and his late wife. He couldn’t understand why he couldn’t resist having special feelings for Nina. But he realized that God and his late wife were helping him meet Nina along the way.
So, Dave overcame his fear of rejection and confessed to Nina. To his great joy, Nina expressed her irresistible admiration for him and wanted to see him again.
Without hesitation, Dave quickly booked a flight back to Ukraine. Just a few days after meeting each other again, they became a couple. Surprisingly, it was Nina who asked Dave if he wanted to marry her.
Two months later, both finally got married and bought a flat together.
Ultimately, Dave decided to stay with Nina in Poltava and adopted her two adorable daughters. Today, the lovely couple enjoys traveling together and are now raising their new-born baby as their union keeps getting stronger.
