AFA Romance Tours
A Distant Light Romance Tours by A Foreign Affair are extraordinary travel adventures. Beyond the excitement of exploring faraway places, imagine having a lovely woman like one of those featured here or one of many hundreds of other beautiful hearts as your companion and guide. Consider the possibility of her becoming a lifetime companion. This could happen for you!
If you don't have a special lady in mind to meet, where would you like to go exploring? To find which of our tours appeals to you most, begin at the Romance Tours Index. If you've chosen a foreign sweetheart who lives far from any of our Romance Tours destinations, or you prefer to meet independently, we can provide Travel Information to help facilitate your meeting.
Two Foreign Sweethearts
As you know, children can be one of life's greatest rewards. Certainly, you shouldn't rule-out any prospective foreign bride just because she is childless, for together you could do something about that. But neither should you exclude her just because she already has children, for together you could form an instant family! That could benefit you in several ways. Consider having two, or more, foreign sweethearts.
An intercultural relationship may not be for everyone. Yet, if you will invest the necessary time, effort and money into a relationship, and be reasonably flexible, tolerant and patient, your chances of finding happiness with a foreign bride are good. Whichever path you choose, our wish for you is that your journey will be pleasant and that you will find, in life, everything that you seek.
International Introduction Service Q & A
Foreign Courtship Advice and Recommendations From the Editors of A Distant Light
Q: To a prospective foreign bride who doesn't specify an age preference, how much of an age difference might customarily be acceptable?
A: Surveys have shown that when considering age apart from other factors, 98 to 99 percent of single Ukrainian women and single Russian women seeking marriage would readily accept a partner as much as ten years their elder. The rate of such ready acceptance among women of the former Soviet Union declines to 50 percent as age disparity increases to 15 years.
In predominantly Buddhist cultures of the Far East, as for example in Thailand, elder persons are revered for their accumulated wisdom. So, some of the single Asian women seeking marriage, in particular, might accept or even welcome somewhat greater age disparities.
For an international introductions agency to promote so-called MayDecember romances might be good for business, in the short term, but would it be good for you? For the prospective foreign bride? Around here, we believe that what's best for business is the long-term success of your intercultural relationship. So, rather than encourage a fifty-year-old man to pursue, say, Colombian single women in their twenties, or a man of forty to chase single Latin women still in their teens, we would respectfully suggest that you listen to your own voice of reason and common sense.
If you don't fully recognize the value in this, you might find it helpful to read A Long Way to Go for a Date, by Henry Makow. The outcome of Mr. Makow's real-life personal adventure may surprise you. Find it listed under Foreign Bride Resources, below.)
Foreign Bride Resources
A foreign sweetheart is more likely to become the foreign bride of a gentleman who demonstrates an interest in, and some knowledge of, her native culture. A Lonely Planet ® Travel Survival Kit (right sidebar) can be helpful. Besides the practical advice for travelers, they provide some historical background and discuss relevant social, political and economic aspects of modern society.
You can benefit from the experiences (both good and bad) of others, in the pursuit of intercultural relationships, by referring to these worthwhile additional foreign bride resources. And remember, at A Distant Light we're here to help! You can contact us by phone, fax, e-mail or postal mail, or visit us (no appointment is necessary during regular business hours) at any of the AFA offices worldwide.
And for an uplifting example of romance gone right, take time to enjoy the Web site of Jeffrey and Emelda Hollis. Screenwriter Jeff's engaging stories of courtship and marriage with Emelda (who is absolutely adorable) will touch your heart.
"Relationships are like Rome difficult to start out, incredible during the prosperity of the 'Golden Age' and unbearable during the fall. Then a new kingdom will come along and the whole process will repeat itself until you come across a kingdom, like Egypt, that thrives and continues to flourish. This kingdom will become your best friend, your soul mate and your love."

Hear Astrud Gilberto's music now, at Amazon.com!
This popular American singer and songwriter of German and Brazilian descent is admired by generations of music lovers everywhere. Her name is practically synonymous with the bossa nova style of her native Brazil, and her endearing voice can be one of the most seductive on the planet.
Yet, there is more to be said of this remarkable woman, of which you may have been unaware. She is also a talented graphic artist. Through sales of the reproductions and prints of her original artworks (which can make unforgettable gifts, especially when signed by the artist herself), she supports efforts to protect animals from mistreatment.
Please see the charming (if, at times, necessarily intense) Web pages that have been created, with love, by this profoundly
beautiful human being,
Ms. Astrud Gilberto
[The Editors of A Distant Light are privileged to express our appreciation of Ms. Gilberto and her work. Ms. Gilberto is not a participant in our service.]
