Website offers men tropical “love tours” to meet Russian brides.
As if we single women don’t have enough trouble finding mates. Now we have to compete with this?
A Sacramento/Kazakhstan based company has just announced “love tours,” where men can relax in Caribbean villas, golf to their hearts’ content and mingle with a houseful of “marriage minded” Eastern European women.
Oh, how we wish we were kidding.
The tours, organized by the mail order bride matchmaking site OksanaLove.com, promise villas stocked with 10 to 12 Russian (or former Soviet Republic) ladies for every three lucky men flown in from the United States.
Three-day packages start at $1,500, plus a $5,000 engagement fee. Not only does this little vacay include food, drink, swimming and sunshine – it comes with a professional matchmaker and visa assistance for the bikini, errrr, girl you pick to marry on the spot. But don’t worry, if your foreign fiancé breaks things off before her visa goes through, you get your 5,000 bucks back.

Oksana Love tours take place in the Dominican Republic. This neutral tropical location is important, according to the site, because:
You have to see how she feels being away from her home, family, friends. This experience will show you how high or low her chances are to get adjusted to a new culture, new country, and new society. If she gets home sick, it is better to see it from the beginning, but not when it’s too late and you put too much time into relationships, when you already had brought her to your country to marry.
