If it looks too good to be true...
(Alexandria, Va, USA)
I met a girl thru the Blossoms website. I had actually met several, and could have chosen better, but my choice was based on where I wanted to go (Cebu for vacation) more than on the girl, so...
She was (at 19) nice enough. Her family was actually very nice to me as well (her mom was highly educated and taught English in the hometown elementary school). I did spend appx $3.5K, including the flight and hotel. But it was the first vacation I'd had in almost 8 years, so no biggie. Though from what I understand, it was more than her father earned all year long.
Of course, for the full time I was there, she had somone from her family with her at all times. But what really surprised me most was that she brought her older GF along 90% of the time (she was there to provide "fun", b/c the girl I came to visit was still a virgin... supposedly).
So, I spent more than a week in Cebu, footed a $500 bill for a "town" party (small town just south of Daanbantayan), and had some "fun" with the older GF.
Three years after I left (it's been 4.5 years since I was last there), she turned up pregnant and w/o a husband. When will these girls learn? The sperm donor left for parts unknown overseas to find work. His family helps to minimally support the child, but that won't last.
I offered her a lifestyle she'll never find there, especially now that she's dragging an extra pair of feet along with her. But that was her choice. Guess there are times when you can teach new dogs any tricks either?
