In general I agree.  However, I have my own 'saving mom's hair' story.  When my mom had cancer I was cutting her hair and it was when the radiation was kicking in.  It started falling out as I was combing it and was quite emotional.  I saved it in a little box in my bedroom.  Her hair never grew back (one of the rare people) and she died about 12 years ago.  So while it IS creepy, for some reason I am glad I have it.  There are people who are weird about hair.  My old salon had a client who would take all the cut bits from her hair.  She never really explained it.

I'm so sorry about your mother. I'm sure its very comforting to have something of hers. The Victorians used to make jewelry with hair, and "mourning brooches" and rings with the hair of the loved one who'd died. But hair from the living was also used to make jewelry--remember in Little Women, when all the girls and their father gave Marmee a brooch for Christmas, made with locks of their hair?

There are pagans and Wiccans who dispose of their own hair and nails clippings and whatnot, so that no one can get hold of it and use it for nefarious purposes. Maybe that was the deal with your old client!

Oh my god, I forgot about that.  He was holding a bouquet of roses, while draped in a banner with a picture of him holding roses.  The Hell? 

I thought he had the banner with the photo of himself draped over his shoulder that way was so that Darcy would know it was him no matter which direction she was coming from. Either way, it seemed a little weird. I think Jesse is just, off somehow.

Yvonne DeCarlo was a goddess in her youth. I remember watching the 10 Commandments and wondering why Moses was sweating over that old tired queen when his wife put her to shame.

I can't believe that Abby finds these old farts attractive. There are attractive older men but personally I don't think they're representative of them. It's what she's getting; they're getting played not her, I feel. She seems intelligent & ambitious, & I can understand her wanting to get out & have more opportunity. I also suspect she's being coached in how to handle them & make this happen for her. Again, I can't blame her, but Sean just disgusts me. It's disturbing how he can be 'in love' with a child - he's obviously in lust & it's all wrong.

Paul - all kinds of messed up. Again so sad for the girl obviously advertising herself, & he's another schmuck loser chasing a child -she looks younger than 21 to me. They're worlds apart & he doesn't speak her language nor has he even tried to learn. Paul deserves ALL the mosquito bites he gets.

Darcy spent hours on a plane in those way too tight torn up jeans - ick.  Had to laugh at Jesse saying he's not 'one of those superficial' guys, then describing Darcy's looks to his buds; even her boobs. Yeah, he's really deep.

Darcey's face looks busted in comparison to her twin sister who looks way younger than her. She really needs to lay off the Botox and other fillers. Her twin is beautiful, so  she must have some sort of skewed perception of her own looks.  Often people who use Botox and fillers ruin their looks.

 The dermatologist that I go to had an open house and they took my picture and showed me what I'd look like with fillers, and I'm not kidding you, I looked like a caricature of myself.  That wasn't me at all. In fact, I was horrified.

I googled on private browsing because I'm not having my search history involved with that mess but these quotes sum it up better than I did,

" They feel that women have somehow gained an unfair advantage in the world, making it virtually impossible for a heterosexual, cisgendered white man to get a break. They see relationships as a fight for dominance and sex as a god-given right that’s being kept from them by women because REASONS."

"women are only of worth from the ages of 16 to 25; afterwards they hit “The Wall”. The point in a woman’s life where her ego and self-assessed view of her sexual market value exceed her actual sexual market value; the beginning of the decline. Usually occurs as a wake-up shock to women when they realize that their power over men was temporary and that their looks are fading. This usually results with first denial and then a sudden change in priority towards looking for a husband."

I admit to having heard of these wackadoos before, but I only knew a little bit about them. What you've posted here is actually quite scary.

Dude.  Love, Actually taught me that!  

WHY can't people do some Googling before they travel?  Am I insane?  Planning out my vacations, especially if I'm travelling aboard.  Learning key phrases and customs, so I can be a good traveler.  Clearly, I've been wasting my time.  

Actually I think Paul was googling too much and the wrong stuff. He probably has antivenom for every snake there is in Brazil but doesn't know how to say that he was bitten by snake in Portuguese...

I just went through Schipol in July on my way to Poland.  I flew from the US to Amsterdam (Schipol) to Poland and I was able to shop and sample.  At no point did I go through customs in either country except on my way home.  My guess, unless it's show shenanigans like you say, is that she had a lay over in another country where once she landed at Schipol it would make going through customs unnecessary.

Thank you!  That makes a lot of sense about her perhaps being Wiccan.  Based on my memories of her it really could be it!  I learn so much from all you super smart posters!

Now that I can understand. if I had gone through that same thing with my mother I KNOW it would mean a lot to me too. I didn't think it was creepy that she gave him her hair from her comb, just really unexpected. If anything it would have made more sense for him to give her  or her request wads of his hair because he was the one about to put HIS life at risk. If something did happen to him I don't know how that wad of hair would make him feel better or maybe she wanted to give it to him because it would give him security if he was missing his mamma?? Idk, but  I just didn't understand it and they didn't explain it. 

I'm just referring to hair you may find in your food or wrapped around your toes that you have to pull off. I don't even like to touch my own loose strands.  I shed like crazy and have ruined a few nice vacuum cleaners from the strands getting tangled and wrapped in the bristles. I literally cringe when I think about it. I can't help it, but I do. 

 I can hardly think about it because losing my mother or sister would be unfathomable since my dad has already passed away :( but if it was one of Them that had passed, I would take every strand I could find of theirs and keep them, put them somewhere safe and cherish them forever... So I Can definitely understand that side of it. 

Finding hair where it is NOT supposed to be gives me the heebie jeebies like you mention, in food!  Can't say I have had them around my toes (yet!).  The vacuum is a nightmare.  I look at what is wrapped around the bristles and think surely I should be bald by now.  

I get really freaked about losing my sisters (or cousin).  We are all we really have left and the thought of being the lone survivor gives me the sads.  When my husband goes?  Let's just say I hope I go first.

Abbey is a beautiful girl, smart, articulate.  I understand that she wants to leave Haiti asap.  But can't she find a better American guy online?  Or are Sean and Chris the best the online scene has to offer to poor Haitian girls?

Sean is about as good as it gets for a young Haitian girl. Normal, attractive 25 year old American guys don't trawl Caribbean dating sites looking for chicks.

Now, importantly, it seems that she did NOT meet Chris online. Remember, Chris spends six(?) months every year in the sex tourist mecca of the Dominican Republic, which borders Haiti.  Abby met Chris in the DR. The question I have is what the heck was Abby doing in the DR?

Young impoverished Haitian girls don't just travel there to vacation and hang out at resorts. I've been to a lot of sleazy bars in developing countries, and often the young ladies "working" in these bars are from a neighboring country. I recall chatting with Colombian hookers in Panama, with Nigerian hookers in Ghana, with Vietnamese hookers in Cambodia, etc.  If Abby was traveling to DR at age 18-19 and meeting 64 year old American sex tourists there, then she may have been involved in the sleaze scene in some way.  She's obviously quite liberated in that she already committed to shtupping Sean at the AirBnB.

You're right. She young and beautiful, but not at all innocent.  That was obvious when she asked Sean if he wanted to get sweaty later that night. With that background Sean or Chris I guess are good options.  I have college age and high school sons, they want educated, American girls.  

How sad to be born in such poverty where girls have to use their bodies to make living and improve there circumstances. Things are not perfect in the US for women, but we can earn a living and have a nice life without having to sell our bodies to the highest bidder.

Abby's living situation is not as bad as I would have thought for a Haitian woman who decided to date a 64 year old American. She lives in the capital, in a good house by local standards, has her own room, and she goes to school full time.  That's pretty good. She's not living in a shack or sharing a floor mat sleeping with two sisters and working in a sweat shop.  She's only 20, she shouldn't be so desperate to marry a white guy until she's, I don't know, 25.

She also speaks much better English than a typical 20 year old Haitian woman, which makes me wonder if she learned some of it from American sex tourist dudes in the Dominican Republic.

But you were connecting in the Schengen zone, so you didn't have to do any formalities in Amsterdam and could do what you pleased while you were airside.  This was Darcey's ultimate destination, so she had to clear Immigration and Customs.  No way those passengers can wander around like that and mix with other passengers until they have been cleared to be "in" The Netherlands.  

Shenanigans.

She's probably been active in sex tourism for five years.  The next step is US.

That was kind of my point in the next sentence that was left off of what you quoted.  I said my guess was that, unless it was shenanigans like you stated, she may have flown through another European country before ending in Amsterdam.

Exactly. They herded us directly to customs when we landed as it was our final destination. This has been my experience with all foreign travel.

I think this season is the best in terms of hot, delicious messes on whole.  Season 1 was Pao/Russ while the rest where pretty bland. Season 2 gave us Dani/Mo -- can't remember the others. Season 3 standouts were Mark/Nikki, Melanie/Devar, and Loren/Alexi.  M/D and L/A do seem to love each other so it's not that dramatic. Season 4 was very solid entertainment with the introductions of Afnisa/George and Nicole/Azan. This new series/season gives us 3 very fun to watch American idiots.

As much as I enjoy making fun of the trainwrecks, I actually do enjoy when couples work out... I think sometimes the producers think that most/all the couples will explode, but when the couples actually turn out to be sincere, it's still fun to watch.

That's what I like about Loren and Alexei.  Very typical drama for newlyweds.  Some of the drama seems to be created or exaggerated for the cameras. And their families get along so well, which may not be so typical.

I wonder if their shared religious/cultural heritage has something to do with that. They and their families will already "speak the same language" in a lot of ways, more than, say, a Muslim man from Tunisia and a divorced mother of 4 (?) from Ohio. There was probably a lot less "in MY culture..." to have to explain between Loren and Alexi, and even when differences were present, I imagine it was less of an obstacle because the differences were not as foreign and overwhelming as the differences that Nicole and Azan would have encountered, for instance.

I'm sure that's a big part of their success; they already understand one another on a deeper level as a result.  They married for love and both gave up something to be together, so it wasn't like Alexei was seeking a green card and decided Loren was "acceptable", á la Mohammit.  Alexei and Loren are a true love match and their families like one another and think the two of them made a good choice.

That said, the couples on this show all reek of either desperation or skeeviness or a combination of both. None of them seem to have much of anything in common  with their prospective partners. Between The Cougar, The Arsonist, and Mr Christian Polyamory, this should be very interesting to see how things turn out.

That would have been ratings gold! If you watched the adventures (rather misadventures) of Nicole and Azan, it might have given you some idea how things might have happened.

Abby and Anfisa are very similar -- except Anfisa is a violent bitch. 

 I get this feeling that Abby is the type that once she got her green card she would have an easier time moving on getting some kind of job (even a questionable one) and being independent, while Anfisa does not want to put out the effort and will always need to be supported by George or someone else.  Anfisa is probably more honest with less to hide than Abby, I imagine.

I watched both episodes today.  Very addicting.  I'm always cynical and wonder how real all this is,  but I have known 2 women who have actually done this.  Both older women, one finding a much younger man in Cuba, and one in Egypt and they both traveled to meet these men they originally met online.  

I just wonder how these people find all of this to be normal?  I'd be embarrassed by it (not that I would actually do it), but these people (assuming this is all real) don't feel they come of as maybe a little bit desperate at all?

How did it work out for them? Did they end up with a Pedro grifter type or a sweetheart like Alexi?  I worked with a lovely young woman who met a man from Turkey - he left her right after his green card was inked. She was devastated

The characters on this show are all fascinating. Particularly Darcee. She is a middle aged woman but has the vocal fry and fashion style of a young Kardashian. So weird.

I am not sure about the one in Cuba, as she was a friend of a friend and they don't keep in touch.  I just remember she said they were engaged.  She went to visit him once.  The Egypt man didn't work out.  According to her, he was supposed to move here but all she said was they were working on papers for him to get here and that was her story for over a year.   She then met someone else.  A local guy (who was also Muslim) but nobody has ever met him.

It might be the way she presents herself, she has a lot of poise, beautiful teeth, coiffed hair, dresses well and not "cheap looking". Her English is very good as well. I have a friend from Haiti tell me that her relatives there have domestic servants and whatnot. I know that Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world (if not the poorest) but I wouldnt be surprised if Abbey had really met Chris while vacationing in the DR. However she probably wants to get herself out of Haiti and gain more opportunities in the US. I am also not sure if she is genuinely into Caucasian men or if she sees them as her only opportunity out.

 I get this feeling that Abby is the type that once she got her green card she would have an easier time moving on getting some kind of job (even a questionable one) and being independent, while Anfisa does not want to put out the effort and will always need to be supported by George or someone else.  Anfisa is probably more honest with less to hide than Abby, I imagine.

Yea, that sounds about right. Anfisa is incredibly shamelessly upfront and said what drew her to Jorge was that he said he was rich. Abbey seems a little more clever and cunning.

Paul probably could have bought a lot of that stuff in Brazil in the last major city he flew into before getting onto the Amazon cruise.  And it would have been much cheaper.  My family has done a lot of mission trips to Central America, and at some point the organization realized that instead of having volunteers bring stuff down, it's cheaper and easier to purchase it there, and you're supporting the local economy. 

Of course, Paul probably would have had to have learned more than "I love you, " in Portugese to carry out his shopping transactions.

Or at least buy a d*** phrase book and English/Portuguese dictionary. Do they still sell those or is it all online now?
