They live in Denmark and help others like them to come and get married.
All told, it took only a month to gather and prepare all necessary documents, and on 6 March, Leonid and Yury boarded the plane that would take them to the kingdom, where their own fairy tale would begin.
The dating battleground can be a fierce, unrelenting and savage arena, and Denmark is by no means an exception, especially when it comes to non-Danes trying to woo Danish women.
As an expat, you may have naively left the airport with a sense of safety that the years of honing your irresistible charm will be enough to navigate the minefield of finding love in Denmark. If dating and love are literally a battlefield, you would be strictly following the Geneva convention while that lovely Danish woman has no problem with a little bit of chemical warfare.
For Russian Leonid (34, left), Denmark has always been a kind of fairy tale kingdom.
This week he visited the Danish capital for the first time – to make his own personal fairy tale come true by marrying his boyfriend Yury (30, right).
You should keep this amazing spirit of freedom and equality,” says Leonid appreciatively.
The saying patience is a virtue was created for dating Danes (this may or may not be true).
One thing that I've heard time and time again from Danish women is that their male counterparts are hopeless at flirting, or at least at flirting well.
I'm not suggesting you go crazy but if you can talk the talk it may go a long way, especially with that accent many Danish girls will find adorable – more on that later.
For Leonid, who had not had any serious relationships before, it was love at first sight, and he decided to try out the relationship thing with Yury.
Even though it was not classic love from Yury’s side from the beginning, he was the one asking the important question on a holiday in Egypt.
