Pretty much, just remember, that honesty will get you nowhere.  If she asks if the dress makes her butt look big you could tell her the truth and say that her butt makes the dress look big, but then you'll be a single chump looser again.  No siree!  You tell her that she looks exquisite and not a crows foot or age spot is visible on any of her chins!

This is where you are wrong.

There is a psychological phenomenon which is incredibly powerful and I am afraid to share it frankly. But doing the above will get you nowhere with most women (since most, especially in America respond to this psychological ploy because of our history of broken families and failed communities.)

I've charmed more women with an insult than a compliment.

I touched on that in the preceding paragraph.  And in a round about way in the last sentence of this one.   ;)

What if it's a Black or Latina girl though? They take pride in the size of their butt.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

Well, we have two conflicting schools of thought.

Orthonorm would suggest you neg her - "Wow.  Did you just get off the boat from Somalia/El Salvadorado (or some other starving third world place w/o tourism and frequent civil wars)?  I think I can see your hip bones."

I'm more into lying to a woman, for any reason - "It's humungous, baby!  Elephantine, even!"

While whole books of cautions could be written, I will say that one of the most enduring AND successful Orthodox marriages I've seen, was between a man and woman who met via a dating service. This is not quite the mail order bride, but essentially similar to online "match" sites.

They were wise enough to plan for themselves a two-year courtship before marriage would be countenanced. The woman, from a foreign country but living then in England, if I recall, converted to Orthodoxy.

I am have not seen a rush for the exit gates on the part of such women, but it could be that I see the best of the subset, so to speak. Interfaith marriages often have pretty daunting problems.

A buddy of mine has a mail order bride and they're quite happy. Im not saying that its definitely yes, it wrong however the woman is not obligated to marry anyone. Sounds like a mix of high-cost dating and an arranged marriage to me.

I think it really depends on what the person is looking for.

The vast majority of people who want a relationship usually have a certain character in their minds, a certain life story, and they are looking for the person who will fit that (and will want to fit that, for the matter).

In that case, is the beginning of the story that important for you? Does it have to come about through romantic serendipity (the main "theme" these days, due to movies and books)? Does it have to be related to being with friends, meeting her in the same circles you go with them? Does she have to be introduced by your parents, who first did the search among their friends daughters? If the "introduction" of your story is really not important, then marriage arranged by third-parties may be an option.

The first thing you have to remember is that it's logical to expect a lot of vultures parasiting human need of love in that. Never researched that, but I would expect most of what exists to be scams to get people's money and green cards. I would have to do research to find out which companies are really into matchmaking and which have confirmed good reputation - trusting not the "cases of success" (which may well be just biases propaganda) but assessment by third parties.

But before all that, think about your responsibility. If you find a trustable matchmaking site, if you find a nice girl there, she will be full of dreams for her life with you. I suppose you are in the US or some 1st world country right? She will have all those movies images with nice two store houses and two cars, green yards in her mind. Even if she has an "average" situation in her country, she expects the "average" situation in the 1st world to be significantly better. What I'm trying to say is that, even if she is not a social-climber, you still will be responsible for her well-being, both financial and psychological, much more than in a usual relationship where if the girls wants to quit, she simply gets her things and go back home.
Always remember she will be the one saying the poem below to you all the time, even if she never read it.

"Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven" William Butler Yeats

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Maybe this was not "mail order brides" but when our grandparents etc. came over on boats at Ellis island it was pretty common for couples to quickly marry before disembarking and going to their new homes.  These marriages seem to have endured longer than the average marriage today.

I have a distant relative -- now long deceased -- who got blind drunk and woke up married. I was told the marriage was quite happy despite its inauspicious start.

It might come off racist if you imply that it such a phenomenon is just 'natural' and independent of cultural assumptions of beauty produced by historical, social, and political factors.

I remember reading the OK Cupid thing a while back. Actually they had quite a few interesting blog entries (or whatever) using the data they track. But as with most statistics I think it's generally meaningless.  Stupid stupid statistics.  So... *shrugs*   Thanks for bumping this A1 thread though!  :)

Given the current weight limitations of Amazon's drone (approx. 5 lbs, I think) said bride or groom would have to be rather small, don't you think?  But then....oh, never mind... ;D

Given the direction of this thread, perhaps we could ponder delivery of a bride or groom within 30 minutes by an Amazon Prime Drone Droid in 2015?   ;)

Alternatively, we can wait until transporter technology becomes commercially available. ;)

Well...I'll probably be long dead by then, and JamesR will probably be an old man, no longer particularly interested in mail order brides. ;D
