Interface & Usability:
The main web site consists
of a pink, white and blue interface.
Aprettywoman's web site is straight forward to navigate. All main
sections are located across the top of every page so there's good
consistency throughout. Whilst they do have a graphic menu across
the top, they also have a text based version repeated underneath
It's very small, to the point where I really had to look at what
I was clicking on.
The main emphasis of this site is around the photo gallery's. There's
nothing wrong with that as this is what this web site is all about,
but, more time could be spent on improving the other areas of the
site and thus the company's image.
As it stands, what the web site does, it does well. This site will
load quickly on a 56k dial-up connection. And I think this is why
it's a bit sparse in the graphics department, so that your surfing
will be of an acceptable speed. So it's an even trade off.
The main photo gallery gives you 6 profiles per page with a link
to every profile in the database at the bottom.
Pictures are of an extremely high quality and size.
Profiles give you a ladies basic details and summary, a more detailed
profile can be accessed upon purchasing a membership or address.
This can include, extra details, photo sets and letters reviewed
from the lady in question.
Aprettywoman is a USA based
company that is run by a closely knit team of professionals. They
are a marriage agency who started online back in 1995.
They are well established and are one of the more popular marriage
sites out there, with over 7000 beautiful carefully selected women
in their database.
One of their team members Steve had this to say about their mission
"Our goal is not just to bring people together, but to assist
in every way possible, in making it all go smoothly along the way.
Indeed, we have clients that have found happiness through us, who
would never have met each other had it not been for our efforts.
Our greatest satisfaction is your success and happiness, and we
strive at all times to achieve that goal for all our clients. We
are always ready to give assistance and to help you find, meet and
marry your dream girl. "
Like other international marriage web sites we've reviewed, Aprettywoman
has a clear commitment to their customers satisfaction.
When you begin corresponding with ladies overseas, they won't interfere,
as they respect your privacy and realize that you may not wish translators
going through your personal letters to your potential future wife.
But they like to re-assure their clients that they can be contacted
at anytime there after if you wish to arrange a visit to Russia/Ukraine
or need help or more information in any way. It's sort of like a
safety net and is a testament to their customer focused attitude.
What we liked about the site:
The company is USA based
and as such has to adhere to consumer protection laws.
In business since 1995, still going strong.
Very easily searchable database of profiles.
Over 7000 female members to search through.
Fast loading web site.
User friendly web site.
High quality photographs.
After a purchase, further assistance and follow up information
services are available at no extra cost, if you are having any problems.
What we didn't like about the site:
email system. Not practical anyway as most of their lady clients
do not have direct internet access. Correspondence is mostly through
hand written letters unless email details are included in a ladies
Monthly membership, 3 month minimum, no free trial signup's. Although
to browse through profiles and add ladies to your favorites basket
is free and does not require a login.
The main navigation menu toolbar font size is too small.
The web site, though functional, could do with a lick of paint
by today's web design standards. Though it should be noted that
bells and whistles would only slow the site loading times down and
wouldn't benefit their clients surfing experience, especially if
they were using a 56k modem connection.
Aprettywoman provides a
professional customer focused international marriage service.
Yes, there are larger companies out there but sometimes good things
come in small packages and Aprettywoman falls under this heading.
As a closely knit team they can give you that personal touch that
a big corporation could never do. They have extensive testimonials
from satisfied customers throughout their site and are happy to
answer any questions you may have.
Don't be put off by the basic look of their web site. This is intentional
as they wanted a faster loading site that served their customers
better. It in no way detracts from the quality service they provide
to their clients.
(Editors Note: You will find that most marriage agency web sites
are not as technologically developed as a normal online dating web
site, this is because their primary target market resides mostly
offline, where as a purely online dating site is used for real time
interaction and as such must have all the latest instant messaging
and web cam features just to stay ahead of the game" Ed.)

||"Dear A Pretty Woman,
This letter is to express my sincere gratitude towards your service.
At every step of the way, I have received a total commitment by
your staff to see that my questions and needs were met in every
way. Being new to this search for a foreign wife and having a busy
schedule, I placed a personal ad with your service. I am pleased
to report that the quality of the women who responded to my ad were
of the highest caliber that I have spoken with in a long time. These
women were ready and willing to get right down to business in an
honest giving way. No nonsense non-corrupted honest women. It is
like a breath of fresh air to find such women again. The only problem
I see is which one to choose! There are so many good ones ready
to commit for a lifetime. Read that last sentence again! When was
the last time you heard that in the USA? It is also hard to convince
myself that I can get the woman of my dreams and not settle for
less... After settling for less for many years, it seems like a
dream come true. Such wonderful women to share life with. Now I
have to settle on just one when there are so many who are worthy

"I would highly recommend "A Pretty Woman"
introductory service to any man truly in search for his potential
soul mate. As a young, single American man I was having a difficult
time meeting quality, single American women. A demanding career
was one of many contributing factors to my dilemma. After discovering
"A Pretty Woman" introductory service on the Internet
and after comparisons with other agencies, I was impressed and convinced
of the integrity of the company behind the web site and quality
of service from the staff that I decided to purchase a personal
listing. The staff at "A Pretty Woman" has been very responsive
and helpful with any questions that I may have had. I soon started
receiving many letters with photos from friendly, sincere, well-educated,
caring and beautiful women who were eager to contact me. Nearly
all of the letters were written in English and included a personal
e-mail address and sometimes a phone number which has made correspondence
with them very convenient and allowed for a quick response to their
letters. I believe that "A Pretty Woman" provides a great
value in the field of international introduction services. Thanks
