About Us



Mark and Anna Davis first met in Nikolaev Ukraine

In the years that followed their introduction Mark wrote a book and they have both been featured on cable TV shows, The TODAY Show with Matt Lauer, and more. When Peter Marra suggested that they should host their own introduction events, they took a hard look at the way things were being done and saw the need for something more authentic. Something that was truly focused on helping good men find a spouse and eliminating the bad eggs from both sides.

Dream Connections is the realization of that dream.

 ”It has been very rewarding to see that our ideas have proven to work. Men who go on our tours are finding themselves connecting deeply with sincere women in Ukraine”, Mark said. “We know that these trips cost money and take time away from careers. It just makes sense to create a system that maximizes that opportunity to make lasting connections. Our clients do not see this as a vacation, but a quest to find their queen!”

Mark Edward Davis – Author/Founder

Screen Shot 2013-03-16 at 11.15.35 PMMark discovered an amazing secret – one that changed his life – and is dedicated to sharing the good news.   Mark previously owned a leasing company and first dated overseas on a company fishing trip in Brazil.  What he experienced overseas changed his expectations for love, passion, and beauty forever.  Soon after he began to date overseas with the intention of finding a life partner; he succeeded and married Anna Astafieva, from Nikolaev Ukraine.  But he wasn’t the only one.  Several friends found their life partners overseas and encouraged him to write a book about their discovery.

Since that first book was published in 2009 he and Anna have appeared on Dr. Phil, The TODAY Show, Women’s Entertainment Network, and conducted over 50 radio interviews. Mark and Anna now host groups of men on “Quest Tours” with their company, Dream Connections, with an 80% success rate.

Anna Davis – Foreign Operations/Founder

Anna grew up in the town of Nikolaev, Ukraine, as Anna Astafieva.  She has four generations of family there and openly declares that she would not have left if she could have found a faithful, family oriented man in her home town.  She graduated high school at age 16 and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in fashion.  She worked and managed a crew at a local clothing factory and was asked to participate as a runway model for the company once or twice a month.  Her boss at the factory was the one who suggested she might want to sign up with the ‘marriage agency’.  She took her bosses’ advice and the rest is history.

Mark and Anna now work together to help good men from the West meet sincere women from Ukraine – and aggressively combat the mail order bride stereotype myths.

Mark and Anna live in Anaheim, California.



Law & Alona Jackson – Founding Couple

Law and Alona Jackson

Mark and Law had been friends long before Law met his wife.  The two worked on a blog site called “International Dating For Men” and later created a framework for educational packages.

Law met his wife in Nikolaev, Ukraine in 2010 and today they have two children together.  Law has continued to contribute his talents and passions to Dream Connections.  As an animator and graphic designer, he created the logos and branding that you see here.

Although he runs an independent corporate branding company at, he still contributes to the Tribe with design projects and answering questions for men on Webinars and private phone calls.

What a awesome video guys.
Well I am welling to take that chance and risk to really find the woman for me. I have been putting this off for so long. So looks like I am going to bite the bullet and join .

We do say in america when your playing the lattory . you have to be in it to win it right ? So I’m going to have to join this site in order to win my futrue wife right. But I would like to know guys . I am a black American male . Would I have a good chance on meeting some one in the Ukraine that likes a hard working man of color ? Would I be ok walking with this woman in the streets of the UK. And not have to worry that I would have to protect her from some one not liking the fit that she is with a black American in her country ?

See if she is here with me in America and she is my wife. I can handle that. Because its my job to to what I have to do as her man and her husband. But in another country . And me not being able to speak Russian or Ukraine would I have a problem there ? Please get back to me about that question I asked. Your futrue member from The Bronx area in New York City.

My name is Sam Hammack a 50 year young man from Harrisonburg, Virginia. I want you both to know I am a new member as of today and I have viewed every video on your site this evening. I can’t agree with you more. I agree this needs to be done for the men of the US. Having experienced two failed marriages and all the pain associated with that I am on board. My plans at the moment will be to attend the June tour in hopes of meeting my future bride. I spent several years in the military and was exposed to eastern European culture back in the 80′s and I have been fascinated with the culture ever since. I believe what you have embarked on is important for men. I am looking forward to meeting you and attending the tour in June. Congrats on your success to this point.

After 8 years of struggling with every type of “crap” online dating site there is, I have finally found something that is “genuine and real”. I watched my brother marry a beautiful Ukraine woman 20 yrs younger then him and he is still happily married 5 years later. They are in love today the same as if they had just got married, and she still sits on his lap and caresses his hair. Yes there was a risk and he did get burned once prior to meeting her but the risk was worth it. Now it’s my turn, and after two divorces to very demanding and unappreciative American wives I hope it’s not to late for me. It’s so nice to connect with people (European Dream) that have actually done it successfully and are passionate about helping those of us who are genuinely “good guys” win in the end.

Thanks for everything you guys are doing and I genuinely feel that there will be a good outcome for me in the end so I decided to finally join yesterday after watching a week full of You Tube videos (5 to 6 hours a day) about what you guys are trying to accomplish.

This is wonderful and exciting, I can’t wait to wake up each day to view more of your videos and join you guys on the weekly Webinars.

Thanks for doing a wonderful job,

I have many questions. I have signed up for the seminar and I am waiting for the link to be sent so I can begin. I have been communicating on other websites for Ukrainian women and have met a couple of ladies that I would like to meet. I would like to go on a tour to meet them in case they did not work out I could still meet other Ukrainian ladies from the tour itself. What I would like to know is it possible to take the Quest tour and still meet women from the other site? I have been talking with these two ladies for quite some time and it has come to a point that we have to meet in order to know if there is more to what we are feeling right now.. the tour is through AnastasiaDate but the ladies I have met are a sister site DreamMarriage. Also, I watch a video and you quoted some bible versuses and was wondering if you are Christian?
thanks Michael


Mark Davis July 22, 2013 at 3:47 am

Hey, Michael:

I love your questions. Yes, it is possible and several men have set up dates to meet the ladies they’d been corresponding with as part of their Quest Tour. Give me a call and I can explain how to do it – and “How” to do it is very important. The bottom line for you is that you now have a question in your mind about these two ladies. You have an emotional attachment and you need to have your question about them answered. You need to be free to purusue those you’d meet on your Quest Tour, or use our resources to make your time with them amazing and worry free.

Yes, I’m a Christ-following Christian. My dad has been in full-time ministry all of his life and I’ve served on staff as worship leader and men’s ministry coach.

Give me a call anytime: (888) 899-8600 ext. 1

Hope to hear from you soon!

Do you sponsor or promote concentrated individual introductions to ladies at your
office in Ukraine at a single point in time that one has already corresponded with?
Also do you offer a webcam service to allow your clients to see & talk with ladies
they are interested in?


Mark Davis December 10, 2014 at 4:05 pm

Hey, Kevin:

We believe in face-to-face first contact. We don’t have advance communication or web chat for a reason – you have to meet your future wife in person at some point and our experience is that advance communication can lead to misunderstanding that complicates your first meeting in person. Besides, your best judge of who to date is being in the same room and seeing who responds to you first.

Hi mark and anna….My name is james puckett.I am a disabled vet….just bad knees…I Really like what you two beautiful people are doing and watched all your videos.I am 57 years old and live in northern idaho.I have a story to tell you about my experiance in the wonderful country of ukraine.I was chatting with a wonderful and yes….very beautiful,lady.Her name is irina.She is from uman ukraine and is 28 years old.I used a website and chatted for 7 months.We seemed to hit it off but i was always wondering if she was real and if she looked like the pics that she sent me.I bought her a easter basket which came with a short video and helped re asure me that she was real.I decided to take the chance and got my passport and went to kiev,where irina was going to pic me up.This was in september of 2013.I arrived in kiev at 5:00 pm their time.She was there at the airport and was as beautiful as her pictures were.I was thrilled,nervous and very excited after wondering the whole time if she was real or not…I stayed 11 days and had a very good time with their wonderful food,culture and all the beautiful women that were everywhere.I ended up going to dinner with my translater and thought to myself that i had made a mistake,with irina… as nadia,my translater… was 38…more mature and has two girls…ages 9 and 12.We had a terrific evening with wonderful food,dancing and just talking…I knew that irina was to young and it didn’t work out…but had very strong feelings for nadia and have been chatting with her for over 15 months…I really believe that nadia likes me alot and i love her with everything thats in me…I would love to bring nadia and her girls to the u.s….she said that she would do that but right now am having trouble with my finances to make that happen…Kinda funny that i went all the way over there by myself to meet a lady and ended up with my translater….I really hope that it works out….If it dosn’t….I would love to go on one of your tours…as to me…ukrainian women are the most beautiful and wonderful women in the world….does this kind of thing happen on your tours…where you end up falling for your translater?….Be safe and tell anna hi……


james January 6, 2015 at 4:13 am

Just wanted to add that it would have been alot better for me to go to ukraine on one of your tours but didn’t know about it back in sep of 2013….It would have been nice to be around other men that spoke english and have somebody to talk to….When you go by yourself….It can be kinda scairy and trying to communicate was almost impossable without a translater but haveing a very beautiful translater was very nice and am still chatting with her a couple times a week….since september of 2013…..I hope to go back to kiev this spring…….as nadia wants me to …..maybe 2015 will be my year…sher hope so


Daniel Pearson February 1, 2015 at 9:09 pm

Dear Mark,

Please remove me from your website.. My age is 65 soon and am to old for the ladies I am interested in ages 30-45. I have been divorced for many years without children and noticed in your information that the tours are advised if 60+ year old men. I will not date an American women as I am told the age difference here should be no more then 5 years younger or I am a pervert. And I do not have any thing in common with my age group as I am very active person. From riding my adventure BMW motorcycle to sailing and skydiving. Oh and the gym at least 3 days week. I am not set at home type and older women just do not attract me and especially American women.

Thanks again for web site and your time.


Daniel Pearson


james March 7, 2015 at 7:37 pm

WALTER BODKIN December 3, 2015 at 12:03 pm

Congratulations on your new venture. I was the United States Rep for Anastasia International for 8 years. I would meet the men at JFK in New york and accompany them to the Ukraine and we would stay for 11 days. We would do socials and this was their way to meet the women. I like what you are doing a lot better as it gives the girls and the men a chance to inter act with each other .I was Vice President at CBS Telivision for 33 years and this was a great job for me since I had retired. Many of the men still keep in touch with me and I will pass this on to them. If you are ever looking for a Rep to work with the men please let me know. Once again a GREAT idea.
Walter Bodkin
