This more of an inquiry rather than a review. I am in my mid 50's, very distinguished looking, in very good shape, and do not look anywhere near my actual age. I am also very successful and a father of two.
I mention all this for a reason. I recently completed a profile on Dream-Marriage.com. Within a matter of days, I received over 400 messages, some repeatedly from the same women. Many where rightfully asking for my true intentions, wanting only a family-oriented man with serious intentions.
This is what I expected. But what I did not expect is the huge number of women professing their passion for me, wanting me to father their children, or telling me how they could not possibly live without me. There were a significant number of them 19-22 years of age, most in their mid to late 20s. That certainly inflated my ego.
What is most curious though is that at this point I had not yet uploaded a single photo of myself! I then uploaded a photo, and another 500 messages popped up with even more passion. Now, I like think I'm a pretty sharp guy with a lot going for me, but something just seems off about this. I've read your comments with great interest, and now I'm getting cold feet on the whole process. What do you know about this website?
Your instincts are serving you well :-)
I have not had direct exposure to dream-marriage.com, but I have not heard good things. The experience you describe sounds a lot like AnastasiaWeb (click the link to read my review).
As you will read throughout my site - especially in the reviews and in the scam sections - really young, most really hot Russian/Ukrainian women are not interested in men double their age unless they're looking for "the good life". And they don't fall in love right away, and especially not before they've even seen even one picture!
Almost certainly what is happening here is that local agency workers are writing all these messages on behalf of the girls.
You don't need to get cold feet about the whole process. Step one: Read this entire site! It's custom-suited to someone exactly like you. Read especially the reviews and the sections on scams.
But in a nutshell, there's one fairly sure shot, Elena's Models. As I point out in my review (click the link for the review) this is the site where you are least likely to get scammed like this, and the women are the most serious. The average "hotness" may be a little lower (but they certainly don't have a shortage of hotties :-), but that's because the girls all write and post their own profiles. It's all just a lot more "real".
You will have women write you there, but not before you post pictures. And mostly the women who will right will not be the very hottest ones, and they'll probably be over 30 years old.
This is not to say that you won't encounter a scammer there, but they're a lot more rare. And any scamming will be happening from the women, not the agency itself (as you're dealing with at dream-marriage.com).
I hope that helps!
