- Premiere Dating Portal Does the World's Men a Solid

Beauty contests abound in today's world and are populated by the most stunning and talented women to walk the earth. From the largest scale productions...Miss Universe and Miss World, to national and local contests, men for years have gazed upon wave after wonderful wave of contestants only dreaming of what could be. How in their wildest dreams could the regular guy down the block even hope to partake, even for a short time, in such delicious and heavenly pursuits as meeting, let alone date a beauty contestant?

Now,, a premiere online resource for Western men to connect with available women from Russia and CIS, is enabling men around the world to have their cake and eat it as well.

The wellspring of beauty and grace for Anastasia's minions has for years been the major Black Sea resort of Odessa, a mysterious and intriguing city where for decades the most desirable women of the former Soviet Republic of Ukraine could be found. So much so that the major portion of Anastasia's "Romance Tour" excursions are scheduled for the region and include the cities of Nikolaev and Kherson, both a stone's throw from the epicenter, Odessa.

Now Anastasia is doing the regular guy looking for a mate from overseas a good turn with the opportunity to meet and date any number of beauty contestants, including the winners, of her

Miss Odessa Queen 2009 beauty pageant.

Anastasia's Miss Odessa Queen contest will be held during Anastasia's Odessa/Kherson Romance Tour September 2 through 13, 2009 and consist of 30 gorgeous regional Black Sea participants chosen in a run off by their local dating agencies. The contestants will be judged in three rounds to consist of bikini and talent sections to pare the participants down to two runners up and a proud winner.

Judges will be chosen from Anastasia members, participants of the tour, in a lottery of 5 rounds, one for each judges position. Further, a free participation for a lucky member will be awarded in advance of the tour in a separate lottery from members who purchase minimum 100 credits between August 1-16, 2009.

In addition to spa certificates and a laptop computer, the winner of the pageant will also receive extensive press and media coverage.

But the best hard news is that judges and tour participants will get to mingle with all the contestants and winners in a large scale social event as part of the pageant. Further, participants are able to take part in a live date format that schedules a real date with the woman of their choice, including pageant participants, in the woman's home town before, during or after the contest.

At least one major western television network has committed to taping the event for broadcast.

Anastasia's Romance Tours have been widely accepted as the benchmark for all organized romance outings and have been exceptionally well received and attended worldwide.
