Since A Foreign Affair or has been present on the dating scene for so long and established its reputation by initiating thousands of meaningful relationships and successful love stories. The site has an extensive database of beautiful women from Eastern Europe, Asia, and South America.

The site’s unique point is their romantic tours service in addition to expert assistance with all the issues that come up with international marriage including visa applications and the legal intricacies. These ‘extras’ all come at a cost of course.

The downside of the site is that you can never be sure if a woman’s profile is fake or not, and you can easily get carried away and pay a lot of money for features you don’t need. If you are someone who would like an overseas partner and would like a guiding hand along the way then this site makes a pragmatic but potentially expensive choice.
