Very often that is true. Life is not always a picnic for them at home, and finding a good husband, taking care of home and children is something taught at a younger age.
So where do you start?
There are many international dating websites where you can find plenty of beautiful and intelligent women from other countries. Even if it is not marriage you have in mind, learning from other cultures can be very interesting and exciting. Read the full article…
