SOME GOOD ADVICE

We realize that this may be the first time you have ever considered meeting a woman by using a service such as ours. This section is intended to allow you to benefit from the experience of others. By interviewing numerous men and researching volumes of material, we have compiled a top-ten list of hints that will prove beneficial in your research for a foreign woman. Even if you are an old hand at this, it's never too late to learn something new.
Click here to view previous newsletters with more good advice.


1. Do Not Send Money!!! Just like anywhere, there are honest people and there are dishonest people. The point of your correspondence is to develop a special relationship with a foreign woman, not to purchase one. We want you to be aware that you may contact women who will ask you for money for one reason or another. If you are asked for money it should immediately set off alarms and you should proceed very cautiously. There are instances where there may be a valid reason to send money to someone with whom you have been corresponding for some time. In that instance it is recommended that you send it via wire (Western Union).To view previous newsletters addressing this topic please click here:

2. Do include a photo of yourself, and not just any photo. Take some time and put some thought into it. For example, if you are the outdoors type you may want to take it while hiking or biking. The point is to give the women the best possible representation of yourself. In order to keep the costs of the photos to a minimum, you should consider choosing two or three of your best photos and have color copies made instead of developing a new picture for each reply.


3. Try including a little something extra to let her know she is special. This could consist of a pressed flower, or a picture of you as an infant or a toddler, or maybe a poem written in her native language. The idea is to try and distinguish your response from others.


4. Remember when writing your letter that this woman's native language is not English. That doesn't mean she will not be able to understand your letter, but by keeping it simple you will have a much better chance of successfully communicating with her. Try to avoid using four- or five- syllable words; instead of impressing her, you will probably just confuse her. Make sure you neatly print your letter as opposed to writing in cursive. If your handwriting is difficult to read, you may consider typing it.


5. Try to keep the initial letter fast-paced. You certainly don't want to be discussing things like marriage and what your children might look like in your first letter! You may want to tell her a little about yourself, where you were raised, and what schools you have attended. Write a little about your interests, hobbies, likes and dislikes. Basically, just write about things that you would normally talk about on a first date.


6. Make sure you ask her plenty of questions about herself in your first letter. People like to know that others are interested in them and their activities. By asking questions about her she will think that you are interested in her as a person and she will want to respond to you immediately.


7. You may find it useful to do some independent research on the country of origin of the woman you are interested in. Not only will it impress the woman, but it may save you from committing a gaffe. You must always remember that this woman was raised in a totally different culture than our own. Obviously, it is in your best interest to know as much as possible about that culture.


8. Should you get to the point that you want to visit the woman or women you are corresponding with, we strongly recommend that you consider a well respected Foreign Romance Tour Company. Traveling abroad is very different and can be much more dangerous than domestic travel. With a Romance Tour all you have to worry about is meeting the women you are interested in, the Tour Company takes care of all the other details. Even if you are interested in only one woman it makes sense to go with a group simply for the support you will receive. You never know what it’s going to be like once you meet the woman in person. If it doesn’t work out and you are with a Tour Group, you will have many other options to meet other women. Of course we feel our Tours are the best in the industry, but check them out for yourself!

9. Should you get to the point of wanting to marry the woman you have been corresponding with, we recommend the services of a reputable attorney who specializes in immigration law. We have cursory information on immigration laws and various visas, however this information is intended to serve as an introduction only and should be supplemented with an attorney who specializes in this area.

Top 10 Commonly Asked Questions


10. The last and probably most important tip of all is be patient. Consider for a moment how long you have been searching for that perfect mate: ten, twenty, even thirty years? This is an important process and the results of the decision that you make will be far reaching and long lasting. Take the time to correspond with many different women before committing to that special one. One of the key features of our service is that we are continuously updating our service with new women, thus giving you new choices on an almost daily basis. This is probably one of the most important decisions that you will ever make, so please be patient, be thorough, and most of all, enjoy the process!

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.

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."

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.]
