90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days; The Story of David and Lana
David is 60 years old and is about to retire. He plans on traveling and has a lot of cats. But he says that even though he loves spending time with them, they are not a replacement for love. He met Lana online via a dating platform seven years ago and they have been chatting since then.
He lives in Vegas and Lana is Ukrainian. There is something about her accent that mesmerized David. She is 27 years old. When he asked whether she is his girlfriend, she said yes and they have been together ever since. They communicate via the live chat feature of the same website they met on.
Till now, he has spent about 100,000 dollars on chatting with Lana since the feature is not free of cost. When he asks her to communicate via some other platform, she gets angry. Lana says that she is shy and that’s overwhelming for her. So, they continue talking this way. But the weirdest thing is that as soon as they log out from one session, the chats clear up.
