Story #1: Lucas and Olga
This mail order bride story might look at first sight. Lucas, a 38-year-old sales associate from Eureka Springs, met Olga (a 25-years-old secretary from Chortkiv, Ukraine) on one of the biggest mail order bride websites, JollyRomance. In 3 months after their first real-life date, Lucas proposed to Olga.
But this story isn’t that simple.
Olga has always been charmed by the United States. Life in the US seemed like a magazine catalog for her. She wanted to move from that small hometown she lived, studied, and worked in—that’s why she dreamt of meeting an American man from a huge city.
“I didn’t want to flee for a better life”, she says. “It’s not about money or about the monthly salary in America and Ukraine, I just wanted to live in this amazing country”, Olga adds. She is not like some mail order brides who want to be showered with gifts; she only wanted to move from her dad’s tiny hometown to a big American city. But that’s now how it turned out.
In 2018, she met Lucas on JollyRomance. Lucas was a nice, respectful, and romantic man from a small town in Arkansas. They chatted for 2 months, and then he decided to meet Olga in real life. Her femininity, views on life, and beauty impressed and charmed him.
They spent 2 weeks together—after that, Lucas proposed to her and invited her to his hometown.
Of course, Olga heard many positive stories about life and relationship with people in the USA, but those were stories of her friends and relatives. Her friend’s mom moved to the US in the 2000s, her half-sister met an American friend during her Au Paid year and decided to stay, even one of her past partners was a guy from Canada. So, it’s not that she was absolutely terrified of the idea of getting married to an American man and moving to the US. But she heard and read some horror stories, so she was a bit worried about moving to another country.
Everything went perfectly well. In 6 months after returning home, she exited the control zone of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock one more time—this time, with a K-1 visa and two big bags.
This story is not that typical because usually, it takes around a few years for an American guy to propose to a mail order bride. Lucas, in turn, only needed two weeks to marry his Ukrainian bride.
Story #2: Willian and Clara
Clara had nothing in common with “typical” Filipino women or women in Southeast Asia who want to become mail order brides. Most of these mail order brides have no children and are in their 20s.
Clara is a 36-year-old mother of three children—two daughters (7 and 5 years old) and a son (9 years old). She has never thought of Internet-marriage or mail order bride websites, and she didn’t even want to find a husband when she first signed up on EasternHoneys. All she wanted was chatting with American men and maybe finding a decent partner (at least for an online relationship).
It all changed when she met William—a 54-year-old man from Chicago who loves kids, speaks Tagalog, and knows everything about the Philippines. His previous wife was a Filipino mail order bride, too, but they divorced because of communication problems and lack of emotional support.
As a 36-year-old mail order bride with 3 children, Clara had a moderate chance of finding a husband on a mail order bride website. That’s why she was extremely surprised when William sent her a long and detailed e-mail in Tagalog.
“He surprised me, yes. You don’t have a word like susmariosep in English, but it’s an expression we use when we’re caught off guard by a surprise. That was it. A handsome, interesting man sends me a letter in my language and tells me that I look like a morning star and that she loves kids. Could I even dream about it?”
Unlike many men who want an 18-year-old Filipino bride with 0 life experience, William wanted to find a woman who would gladly date and accept a father with a child. They met 3 times in Manila, and 4 months after their first date, William got her an engagement ring.
Let’s skip all the boring stuff with visas, documents, USCIS, and interviews. Today, in 2022, they are married and happy. Clara is a happy wife and mother of 4 children—2 Filipino girls, 1 Filipino boy, and 1 American boy. They are a happy couple, happy parents, and a happy family.
Aurora, a 7-year-old little girl of Clara, says she loves her new life, family, and city. That’s not surprising at all, taking into account the number of playgrounds and nice public spaces in New York.
Story #3: Oliver and Sofia
A few months ago, Oliver, a 25 years old engineer from New York City, decided to visit a site where some of his friends chatted with Latin mail order brides. That site was called La Date, and that’s where he met his destiny. Her name is Sofia.
Sofia, a 20-year-old student from Tijuana, always thought American guys made better partners than Mexican men. She has always been impressed with the US—she never visited this country, but she knew everything about the Golden Gate Bridge and other San Francisco symbols, Times Square, Central Park, Las Vegas, and 64 Perry Street. In 2022, she completed her paid English classes and was ready to chat with tens or hundreds of foreigners. She didn’t have to, actually—the first man she met on LaDate was Oliver.
“I just fell in love with her picture, I don’t know how it works”, Oliver says. “I was so nervous and scared to text her it didn’t even feel real—I’m a stable, nice guy, with a good job, I’m pretty experienced, you know, but her profile and this whole situation was like a time machine that took me back to my school years”, he adds.
In an hour or two, he understood he found all he ever wanted in one woman. Sofia liked him too—it wasn’t love at first sight, she says, but it was something close.
“He was the nicest of all those American men I met on that site”, she says. “That’s why I agreed to go on a real date with him”.
The first date was full of surprises for Oliver. He didn’t know it’s men who pay for the date in Mexico, and he didn’t know it’s women who are always late to the dates there. He had to wait for 2 hours, but it was definitely worth it.
In a few months, they met again. Oliver bought Sofia a ring and told her she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.
She said “yes”. Today, they’re planning to celebrate their wedding in 2023, in the United States.
