90 Day Fiancé star Geoffrey Paschel met Varya Malina through an online dating site.
“I was struggling to find that right person. So I wanted to change it up. I was on my computer and there was an ad that popped up for an international dating site. I said, ‘Why not?’ And I made a profile. And, at that time, I truly believed there is no perfect package. Until I met Varya,” he said on the show.

In an interview Geoffrey did with The Domenick Nati Show on May 19, he elaborated a bit more about how he met Varya.
“Honestly, it was an ad that popped up on my screen over the top of something, I believe it was on Yahoo!, I was reading a Yahoo! article and it said, ‘Find your Russian beauty,’ or whatever. I was like, ‘I’m gonna try this,’” he said.

The reality star said, at the time, he had no intention of actually making a connection with someone.
“So I clicked on it and when I did it brought me to the site. Three or so days later I connected with Varya. It kind of went from there. I had no intentions whatsoever of really meeting somebody but it happened,” he said.
Geoffrey, Varya, and Mary
As 90 Day Fiancé fans know, when Geoffrey and Varya finally met in person in Russia and Geoffrey asked her to marry him, she told him “not now.” Geoffrey took the response to mean that they’d broken up and Varya meant what she said: “not now.” She wanted to continue dating but wasn’t ready to get engaged quite yet.
After Geoffrey returned to America, he proceeded to ignore Varya with the intention of letting their relationship fizzle out.
“She had been messaging me for the past several weeks to a month, I’d been ignoring her. Oh sending this like, ‘Hey how’s your day?’ I’d be like, ‘Hi fine.’ Just kind of really low-key. You know, just let it die down. I don’t feel like I broke up with her when I left. I felt like she ended the relationship,” he said in the interview.

He also started rekindling an old relationship he had with a woman named Mary. And when Varya surprised Geoffrey at his home, he was with her.
“It wasn’t a rebound because I was with Mary long ago and first. So if anything I was rekindling and basing it off of the emotions I was feeling. So when Varya showed up again it was kind of like, ‘What the hell? What do I do?’” he said.
Geoffrey also said that he’s open to appearing on reality dating shows like The Bachelor in the future if his current situation doesn’t work out for him.
“If things don’t work out for me and where the season ends, obviously. I’ve got a lot of baggage though, so there’s no way that I’d ever be the bachelor. But, you know, maybe some spinoff of The Bachelor, I could do that,” he said
