2. Why are Latin women better than Russian women?
Russia has the highest divorce rate in the world! Latin countries have the lowest. Russian women were raised in a society where there is no religion and the people have very cold personalities.

American women are very cold and not family oriented by Latin standards.

Absolutely not! The women in Latin America are typically not materialistic and most live in poverty. We know you will be pleasantly surprised with their honest appreciation of all small gifts, attention and affection they receive.
4. Why can't the women in your agencies find good husbands in their own countries?
They could find a local man but their options are not good and they prefer men from USA and Europe . They think we are more sincere, faithful and hard working. They also find us very different and attractive. It's the ultimate example of supply and demand being in our favor. There are many more beautiful, single ladies in our locations than quality men to fill the demand. We need supply, that's you, the men.
5. What age women should I be dating in Costs Rica?
Age is looked upon differently in Latin America . The higher the age, the more stable and sincere the man. Typically the women are looking for a man 10-20 years older. Here is a quick chart.

Men 36-40 = Women 23-28
Men 41-49 = Women 26-32
Men 50-60 = Women 29-45
6. Do the women just want a Green Card?
Many of our customers retire with their wives in Latin America . Most would be just as happy if you moved there. Most of our women members would follow a man they love, anywhere. This question is usually asked by unhappy married men and American women, they both hate our websites. The American women feel very threatened by it and the married men realize they could have done much better in their choice of a wife. Information is everything and worth more than money!
7. How did these ladies find out about your introduction agency?
Most women are referred to us by friends who have had success with our agency. We also advertise in the local newspapers.

Costa Ricans are very educated people. Most women in the agency are in college or have a degree.

About 30% do have children. If a woman has a child she will marry a much older man. 20-30 years older. This is why you see 50 year old men with young women aged 20-23. If you have children it is not a problem, because the women love the family.
12. I don't see all the women on the website?
Only around half of the women are on the website. When you are in the office you can look through all the profiles of the women. We have the women's profiles in books you can look through with all the detailed information on each woman. You can even send us a list of women in advance of your tour, that way your appointments are already set up for your first day.
13. How often do you get new women for the agency?
We have an average of 5-10 women sign up every day. We only accept 30% of the woman who apply. That's why we have the best looking women in the business. None are models like some of our competitors have.
14. Why do so many beautiful women want to be in our agency?
They want to meet foreign men. Your looks and age are not important, your personality is. Latin men in Latin America are known for their bad behavior and have many girlfriends on the side. For this reason, even the families want their daughters to find a man from outside Latin America .
15. Do I need to write letters first?
No, most of our clients write no letters. While you are writing letters, other men are there meeting the women face to face and going on dates with them. If you can not travel in the next 90 days we advise writing the women and tell them when you are coming to meet them. This way they may wait to meet you before getting engaged to another man. You can also place a Men's Personal Listing so you can see which women are interested in you.

We update the women every month. So if they are on the website in the profiles section, there is a 95% chance they are available.

No, every man is allowed to take one woman out of the agency. We remove her profile from the agency books and the internet if you ask.
19. When I bring a woman back on a Fiance or Marriage Visa, will she be able to work?
Yes, she will get a Social Security card in 1-2 weeks after arriving in the USA on a marriage Visa or after getting married and can get a job. Most women will want to work, they do not want to be stuck in the house all day alone.
20. Do the women speak English?
About half the women speak some English. Many television stations there are in English so the women understand it better than they speak it. There are movie theaters in English as well for your dates. If you are bringing a woman back to the USA put them in English school for 2-4 months while you are waiting for the Visa. English schools in South America cost only $100 a month.
21. Do the women have to pay to be in your agencies?
No, it's a free service for them. Companies that charge the women have a much smaller selection of women and less quality women. Remember the poor women are the nicest and appreciate things the most. The rich ones can be spoiled and lazy because their maid did everything for them while they were growing up.
22. How important are my looks?
Most studies show that men seek beauty, and Latin women seek mature, older, healthy, and stable men with the ability to provide for the family. The women need someone they can depend on. Your personality will be the most important factor.
