I understand, I am not pretty and am nice enough to just keep on a back burner, I have dealt with that my whole life. It is the modus operandi of your modern westernized woman. Now, let me admit, I am not the best person at communicating, ask my entire family about when I was in Iraq and they would never hear from me unless they called. I am sure I have accidentally made people feel the same way throughout my life and I am sorry, but it wasn't intentional. As much as I am dicking around on my phone nowadays, I really don't talk on it much.
St. Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia and home to women who absolutely blow my mind. I have never been to a place where the women, just going to the corner store, dress like they are going out on Saturday night. And the way these girls look dressed up… you will feel a pain in your stomach from falling in love several times a minute.
What I mean when I say living like a local is not living like a tourist or as a westerner who just can't give up McDonald's.
So, in order to keep up with the momentum I have gotten going with Chop's Guide, I need access more than most anything at the moment... well, either access or a plane ticket and some cash to float me till I can acquire some funds overseas. I would go be a freeloader at Starbucks but I would spend all day wanting to burn it down, seriously buy from local coffee shops, it means more.
