from my experience, the direct advertisement of foreign men in local newspapers is the
most effect & the most quick way of seeking the best woman for marriage. it is because
you put in your add what you exactly want & who are you, so you receive letters
from women who are really interested
in you & you have DIRECT contact with them. this helps to avoid possible
misunderstanding in using agencies & helps to earn time of quick contact, anyway in my
opinion the adds in local newspapers can be the best alternative of web researches &
agencies. Of course one must think well about the text of the add.
