’90 Day Fiancé’: Geoffrey Paschel Says He Likes to Date Women Half His Age

90 Day Fiancé fans were introduced to Geoffrey Paschel on season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, where he was trying to make things work with his Russian girlfriend, Varya Malina. The couple finished the dramatic season engaged, but there’s been some question as to whether Geoffrey and Varya are still together.

Why Geoffrey Paschel turned to a Russian dating site to find a girlfriend

When Geoffrey was interviewed by The Domenick Nati Show on June 13, he was asked why he sought out someone overseas to date.

“The reason that I kind of played with it, toyed with it in my mind is that here, where I live, I go for the same type of women. I mean, that’s why I’m in the position I’m in now. I get these partners that I think, ‘Oh, I can help them. They need this, they need that. Let me fix them. I can be that person. They just need a good, strong shoulder to cry on’–whatever. I got in that fixing rut and so I wanted something completely new. And that’s why I actually really contemplated Varya and toyed with it for five or six months before I saw her,” he said.

Geoffrey says he likes to ‘keep [his] options open’ when it comes to the age of the women he dates

Since Geoffrey and Varya didn’t attend the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days “Tell-All” and the two are still under contract, fans are still in the dark when it comes to if they’re still together. Some fans think Geoffrey and Varya are still together. Some fans think Geoffrey ended up with his friend Mary Wallace. And some think Geoffrey is single and dating around.

When Geoffrey and Nati went live on Instagram on July 13, the radio host asked the reality star about the age of women he likes to date.

“For men, they say you should date someone half your age plus seven. So that would be 27 for you,” said Nati.

A deeper understanding… My life has always had a way of giving me lessons when I didn’t know I needed them. Even today, with the negative situations I encounter, there have been positive outcomes. I have been brought closer to the people I need in my life & have squeezed out hidden serpents. I am not going to say the ride has been fun or easy…it’s just that it has been enlightening & ultimately necessary. . I feel there are many things I could not do on my own unless I was forced. My existence has its own special way of compelling me to keep going no matter what obstacles are in front of me. Nonetheless, I finally have come to a point in my life where I welcome the challenges…maybe (well mostly) NOT in the moment, but hindsight is 20/20. Ultimately, I’d like to think we all know what we need, it’s just sometimes we just need a push. . There are so many times in my life when things happen that I don’t understand & can’t explain to others. I always wonder, “Why, for the life of me, did this happen?” With all but one horrendous experience, I accept them all as a part of my journey, & I am such a better person because of them. I definitely wouldn’t be in my shoes now if everything didn’t cumulatively fall together. I haven’t walked a straight path, but my complicated journey has its own purpose. Some may say my red flag has always been waving, but these rough waters have taught me more than I thought I ever needed to know. . So, for many of you, don’t sweat in-the-moment. Try to develop an understanding & see the bigger meaning behind everything. Think. Reflect. Breathe. Many want to think they know the reason behind everything as events occur. I am now wise enough to know that there is so much more meaning to life than we will EVER comprehend. So, when you’re in that storm, wait it out, try to find the good, & know life will go on the way it has always been written…unless you choose to rewrite it . . Have you found yourself in horrible life-changing moments where you have come out on top? Did the storm pass or do you feel like you are still experiencing the intense waves? . Remember, during every storm, the sun is patiently waiting to reveal itself.

“Around there, yeah,” said Geoffrey. “I like to think half my age only.”

“Oh, you don’t like the plus seven?” Asked Nati.

“No, I like to keep my options open,” replied Geoffrey.

The controversial reality star says he’s not sure of the ideal age for him. He’s been with older and younger women and neither worked out.

“I married an older woman once. She was like six or seven years older than me. It didn’t work out. Tried somebody younger than me, didn’t work out. I tried somebody around the same age as me, didn’t work out. I don’t know where else I can go anymore,” he said. “I think there’s one problem. I think it might be just me.”
