The Translation Scams, on the other hand, are pretty specific to Ukraine alone.

In other words, if you’re getting 1 out of 3 people writing back to you, you’re doing okay. If you’re writing to a very attractive person, you now know you’re competing with everyone else on the website.
We loosely classify RDSs into two groups: 1) Travel scams and 2) all others.

Literally 2/3 of male messages go to the best looking 1/3 of women.
This doesn’t mean that they’re not shallow (they are), but rather, that they are consistent and reasonable in terms of “rating” women’s looks.
