And I see a worrying trend - often a reporter already knows what kind of story he or she is going to write, before they even start their interviews.
The first time I heard those words were soon after my marriage when "Cosmo" happened to interview me soon after my marriage, quite by chance.
I was sitting at home, bored and decided to send a letter to a competition that the magazine was launching.
"Cosmo" was looking for somebody to feature in their article about Russian brides.
Believe it or not, the reason for all these beautiful Russian women seeking their destiny over the Internet is that they cannot find their ideal man in Russia.
It is that simple - even if it sounds unbelievable. We often receive requests from Russian women featured in our catalogs to remove their profiles, because they have married Russian men living in Russia - this is a clear evidence that most Russian women seeking contacts with foreign men are not fixed on moving abroad but on finding a serious relationship and getting married.
If a man is not married, it can only mean he is not willing to commit - even bad men can find themselves a wife!
These days the term "mail order brides" is currently used to label the relationship between a man from a first world country and a woman from the third world country or the countries of the former USSR.
The common misconception is that the women only want a way out of their misery and terrible economic situation.
I thought that "Cosmo", like all our friends and family, would find the way we met "very romantic".
Imagine my surprise when I read the announcement of the future article: "South Africa's Mail Order Brides"! I had no idea that, that was the official name of the process! All in all, the article was quite all right.)Now, getting back on track.
