Which girl does not like to travel? Which guy does not like girls? Does it not make sense to bring these two parties together on a website? Someone did. A Lithuanian guy named Linas Sablovskis from Vilnius. He has a website called travelgirls.com. Hats off to Linas for a job, done. I give credit for his creativity. However, that is where I stop.
- The purpose of this post is to review the website on travelgirls.com
Reality check about females who want to travel around Europe
Living in Eastern Europe a good part of my life I noticed there are scores of women looking for trips around Europe and the world. This arises because many a poor girl can not afford to see anything beyond the boarders of their province, but they still dream. They have had a classical education, therefore, they are aware of the world and culture, more than most American girls. Therefore, they have a desire to experience it. They just want to see Paris, and I do not blame them. Sounds like they would do anything to get there? Think again.
Now days these ladies do it. To travel they buy a bus ticket or cheap air to London, Paris or Amsterdam and work as a waitress. Eastern European girls are not looking for a sponsor. Come on guys this is the EU. I do not know any Polish or Romanian girls personally looking for a sponsor on a trip abroad. The Ukrainian girls I know would be offended at this.
- Sure these girls exist but the website in question is gear to attract western guys. I did not see a Russian language side to it, so the question is where did they get all these girls?
Therefore, I question if a large percentage of girls on the site are not scammers or purchased profiles. Traveling with a guy for a trip to an exotic place use to be called a honeymoon and most ladies would not do this.
Further, real Eastern European girls who want to travel do not demand five-star hotels, but rather traveling on a shoe string or off the beaten path or even a three star Egyptian hotel. Maybe some are greedy but most do not have such high expectations and go to Dubai, but this is the exception and not the rule.
They swap apartments with other travellers, and go with groups of friends and stay in youth hostels. It is very 1989 to think that these girls would do it as a call girl. You need a time machine to see these types of girls. So men do not be so naive. The real professional girls would not join such a web site, but have other avenues to milk money from a sugar daddy.
Where real girls who want to barter travel go
For example if you would find a girl looking for a sponsor it is mostly in online classified ads. Sponsoring is not a call girl but rather a girl who can travel and go places with a guy like a boyfriend, but with benefits. They have a normal relationship with the exception the conditions are implied, but not always. I have seen a few of these types of ads on Gumtree, but more commonly on websites that have a dual language like English and Russian side.
What is the purpose of travelgirls.com and my recommendation?
The proposed purpose of this website travelgirls.com is to offer guys a chance to meet such girls. That is women interested in travel. A kind of social networking for people who like to travel. I think it is more about an income stream for the owner.
It is not a web site I personally can recommend. I signed up to review the site and looked at with my Eastern European eyes. Although it has incredible traffic, in my opinion and I could be wrong the profiles look fake. If there are real profiles where is the profile appoval process to screen scammers? It is only in English, this is a huge red flag.
Why the images on Travel girls look fake
They are too professional looking for me to believe that these are normal girls. Remember, I lived in Eastern Europe and even worked at a dating site. The type of photos girls post in Eastern Europe are often with small dark apartments and in whatever clothes, like jeans and a t-shirt. The sofa’s in their apartments look like from the 1980s. The photos are from cell phones. They are mobile phone images of girls take in a rustic setting. However on this site the traveling women are in some international city with very photoshopped images. Who photoshops images of their vacation. Even the less professional images look staged. I even saw a few with watermarks of studios where they were created.
Why the profiles look fake on Travelgirls
All the profiles have no depth I would expect of women from Eastern Europe. No mention of classical literature or specific things like Harry Potter. Rather they are all general and the women claim to speak all the major languages like English and German (this websites target market, that is money rich countries).
In contrast, real Eastern European women study English yes but obscure languages like Finnish etc.
The girls all say they are looking for ‘adventure’. Yeah right, adventure is a sublte term for a roll in the hay. How many normal girls want that. I think every girl I have ever met somewhere in the back of her mind was thinking love, not ‘adventure’. I do not believe it.
How to spot a fake dating site profile:
- Light on details
- Amazing photos
Admittedly, I use the plugin ‘tineye’ to do a reverse image search on a number of the profiles to determine if the profile were used before that is are recycled pictures that have fallen in the public domain once one a dating site (read the contracts closely before you sign up for a dating site as this sometimes happens). I have tried to look for website profiles that are duplicates and I did not find any from this website. So the profiles seems to be unique and not bought en masse. However, he could have bought them from studios in Eastern Europe and set them up manually. Try the tineye plugin on your browser and you will see what I mean.
Why I know about dating website?
Most dating sites are legitimate and honest website. However, I use to work in the business of dating sites. I use to work for one of the largest dating sites in Europe and I know some players in the market buy dating site profiles and increase their numbers. People are enticed by beautiful girls. Well the reality is most websites are fine and I talk about some on my website, however, a few are not. I do not know it for a fact, but travelgirls.com I personally would not join.
Chat system on Travel girls
As soon as you log in women will start sending you chat and email messages that can only be replied to if you are a paying member. I can not believe with no picture or personal information some girl would text me in seconds. I think it was set up this way so guys would sign up for their premium service.
How much money is made from travel girls?
The service is like 1 to 2 Euros a day depending on the plan you choose. With an Alexa or 12,000 I can imagine he has 5,000 paying members. So the owner is making 7,000 Euros a day gross revenue, which is not a bad income. The incentive to cheat a little with profiles is too big to be ignored. I personally would not make a website like this or use this as I do not feel it is 100% honest about the profiles represented. Just my subjective point of view, I may be wrong.
Nabaka LLC is the company the owner formed and sits on a German server, Hetzner online. It is not a bad idea for a website to make money, but I again would have ethical problems with it. Maybe my conclusions are wrong and it is 100% good website.
Update on Travel girls
- Try creating a girls profile and you can contract people for free and make a determination yourself if it is real or not.
Anything good about travelgirls.com?
Yes, browsing profiles if you are single might be fun as there are many beautiful women on this site just to motivate you to travel to Eastern Europe. They look like models and you will be blow away by their allure. Once you get tired of looking at the photos there come back to my website for real advice on how to meet such girls.
In conclusion, sign up if you want, but I recommend you explore the advice on my free website about dating and try some of the websites I recommend. I feel people try to take advantage of people looking for love. Maybe travel girls is a website like that?
