How City of Brides Began
In 1995, three single men were looking for a new direction in their lives. John
Adams and Ron Redburn decided to start a business built around the substantial computer programming skills of the
third founding member, Kenneth Agee.
Although somewhat limited in scope, their original idea was to create a computer dating network between bars and
restaurants in the
Phoenix metro area.
Advanced brainstorming saw the idea broaden to that of a computerized, world wide international
matchmaking organization. It was a visionary business plan, ripe with opportunity. It was an exciting
adventure for the three (then) bachelors from Phoenix. Bringing the plan to fruition required a lot of hard work, but after many long days and nights they combined their efforts with a small start up investment. On
Saturday, February 10, 1996, LoveMe.com was registered and became the first internet-based International
Marriage Agency in the world.
Since that time, John, Ron, and Ken have all found and married Russian brides with the help of LoveMe.com/A Foreign Affair.
They are living proof that not only does the process work but that a lifetime of happiness can start
with a single email, phone call or by attending a Singles Tour.
Today AFA continues to lead the industry by offering more Singles Tours to more destinations than any other company in
