Jerry Petru has worked in cybersecurity for over 30 years, so he knows how to spot a fake. However, when he started online dating in 2015, he let his guard down and opened his heart. He joined a well-known general dating site because he thought he’d have the best chance of finding love on a popular platform known for fostering relationships.

He met and courted three women during his short stint on the dating site — all three of the women turned out to be married. Jerry couldn’t believe the dishonesty of people on the site, so he looked for an option where his potential matches would be screened and verified as single and marriage-minded.

That’s how he came into contact with Kherson Girls. He reached out to them in September 2015 asking for more information about the membership and matching process. Nellie got in touch right away and helped him understand what he could expect from the women on this site and what would be expected of him along the way.

“She was able to help and guide me,” Jerry said. “I’d tried a number of dating sites in the States, and none of them provided the same level of service.”

After a few months of preparation, Jerry traveled to the Ukraine and met the woman of his dreams.

Jerry and Alyona bonded over their shared family values and relationship goals. Now the couple is happily married and living together in a rural area in Washington.
