Our Story

In 1995, three single men desiring a new direction in their lives - Kenneth Agee, John Adams and Ron Redburn - decided to start a business built around the substantial computer programming skills of founding member Ken Agee. Somewhat limited in scope, Ken's original idea was a computer dating network between bars and restaurants in the Phoenix metro area.

As the days rolled past, advanced brainstorming between Ken and Ron brought the idea of a world wide computerized international matchmaking organization to the forefront - not only as a visionary business opportunity but also as an exciting adventure for the (then) three bachelors. Long days and long nights combined with a small start up investment, and on Saturday, February 10, 1996, LoveMe.com was registered with Register.com, Inc. and became the 1st Internet-based International Marriage agency in the world.

Owners John Adams & Ron Redburn, along with Chief Technical Officer Ken Agee and Sales Manager Bud Patterson, have all found and married Russian brides with the help of LoveMe.com/A Foreign Affair. They are living proof that not only does the process work but that a lifetime of happiness can start with a single email, phone call or AFA Romance Tour. Today AFA continues to lead the industry by offering more Romance Tours to more destinations than any other company in the world.

If you have any questions or comments about our service please feel free to call us at (602) 553-8178. Again, we sincerely appreciate the fact that you have considered using our service.

Across the Orient, elegant traditional costumes like the blue dress worn by the lady at right are de rigueur for any formal affair.  Every woman who can possibly afford it owns at least one such outfit, in the style that is characteristic of her particular culture.


If such a woman were eventually to become your bride, one of her gifts to you would be to dress this way, on special occasions, to please you and make you feel proud of her.  One of your gifts to her would be to create many such opportunities for her to enjoy with you.


Imagine the heads your lady would turn, and the tremendous pride you would take in having her walk by your side.


Such considerations, by themselves, do not constitute grounds for marriage, but they can be among the potential rewards of a well-founded multicultural partnership.

Who Is This Elegant Lady?


In the sections immediately preceding and following this, we feature a total of 25 of the beautiful women of eastern Asia.  Most are shown wearing contemporary Western-style attire.  Here, we present one of those same ladies adorned in styles that are traditional to her culture.  Bearing in mind that her assorted photographs may have been taken at various times, can you recognize which of our featured Asian women this is?  (When you are ready, click on either of these pictures to see her profile.)

International Introduction Service Q & A

Foreign Courtship Advice and Recommendations From the Editors of A Distant Light™



Q: I'd prefer to meet a woman immediately than to first correspond with her at length.  Wouldn't that be the more effective approach? 


A: The answer depends upon what you hope to accomplish. 


For men whose objective is simply to get away for a well-deserved vacation, one of our Romance Tours could be the travel adventure of a lifetime, with abundant opportunities for dating attractive (often stunningly attractive) single women who genuinely desire to meet them.  AFA takes care of all the details, and clients can enjoy meeting new friends almost immediately. 


For those whose purpose is to identify and meet potential life partners, however, there is no substitute for adequate preparation.  Clients who lack the necessary patience to establish and develop meaningful relationships before rushing to meet the prospective foreign brides might succeed in finding suitable partners within the context of a Romance Tour, but it shouldn't require a rocket scientist to calculate that their chances of connecting with the right one among hundreds of available women will be substantially limited. 


The interests of men who are disinclined to correspond might be better served by local dating agencies than by an international introductions agency such as A Distant Light™



Q: Why write to several prospective foreign brides at one time?  Wouldn't that just diffuse my efforts, and risk offending all of them? 


A: You can more objectively evaluate the suitability of potential partners, and be less reluctant to downplay any relationships that fail to show promise, if you have a variety of available alternatives. 


Besides, experience has shown that even very well written letters of introduction to single foreign women seeking marriage can be expected to elicit favorable responses in only about 50 percent of instances.  Typical letters to women looking for husbands might draw favorable responses in only 30 to 40 percent of instances.  Although the prospective foreign brides are eager to find life partners, generally they are not desperate.  (If they were desperate, you shouldn't want them!)  Rather, they will be as careful about selecting their partners as you should be.  Some rejections are therefore to be expected, and shouldn't be taken personally because the women don't know you personally. 


Also, about half of the women who initially are receptive may decide, after further evaluation, to continue their searches. 


So, if you were to approach, say, a dozen prospective foreign brides, you might realistically expect to be able to choose, eventually, among two or perhaps three of them.  (Remember, though, that this is based on statistical data, from which your individual experience may differ.) 


Generally speaking, you'll do better to maintain a balanced perspective and improve your chances of success by beginning, on a casual basis, with as many prospective foreign brides as you can comfortably manage, and progressively narrowing the field as relationships develop.  The women shouldn't object to this reasonable approach if you are honest with them, you respect their feelings and they understand that your intention is to find the most suitable partner, which, after all, is in the best interests of everyone.

"Love is eternal.  The aspect may change, but not the essence.  There is the same difference in a person, before and after he is in love, as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning.  The lamp was there and was a good lamp, but now it is shedding light, too – and that is its real function." 

 

—Vincent van Gogh

Compact Jazz: Astrud Gilberto  (Verve)
Hear Astrud Gilberto's music now, at Amazon.com!

    This popular American singer and songwriter of German and Brazilian descent is admired by generations of music lovers everywhere.  Her name is practically synonymous with the bossa nova style of her native Brazil, and her endearing voice can be one of the most seductive on the planet. 
    Yet, there is more to be said of this remarkable woman, of which you may have been unaware.  She is also a talented graphic artist.  Through sales of the reproductions and prints of her original artworks (which can make unforgettable gifts, especially when signed by the artist herself), she supports efforts to protect animals from mistreatment. 
    Please see the charming (if, at times, necessarily intense) Web pages that have been created, with love, by this profoundly beautiful human being, 

–––––––—Ms. Astrud Gilberto—–––––––


[The Editors of A Distant Light™ are privileged to express our appreciation of Ms. Gilberto and her work.  Ms. Gilberto is not a participant in our service.]
