Russian Brides

By michelle      2011-06-25

"Russian Bride" is a recent phenomenon less than 30 years old. However, every year thousands of Russian brides marry foreigners, mostly American men. As with any intriguing trend, dating Russian brides is a subject that has inspired much buzz and many myths. If you have been considering finding a Russian bride of your own to marry and spend the rest of your life with, but are skeptical that what you have heard is true, perhaps this article will help.

There are several myths about dating Russian brides, but we will focus on 3 important ones.

Myth #1. Russian brides are looking for a sugar daddy, not love.

False! Of course there may be a handful of Russian women who are gold-diggers, but this is not the norm. The actual reason why a Russian bride is looking for a foreign husband is that she is not happy with her love life in Russia.

Russia's male to female ratio is roughly 88 women to 100 men. That means there are 10 million more women than men in their country. In Russian culture, the social status of a woman is much lower if she has not married before age thirty. A Russian bride has an ideal about relationships. They wish to marry for love, and to be treated with respect and devotion by their husbands. If this ideal cannot be achieved in Russia, they will look abroad.

Myth #2. Russian women are dependent, shy, reserved, and don't want to work, or only want to be housewives.

Not true! In today's Russia, a majority of the women have a job and are very well educated who value having a career and their own money. Yes of course they are looking for a financially accomplished husband who has proven he is comparatively hard-working and can provide for a family, but this does not mean she will quit working once she is married to you and immigates to America. On the contrary, you will mostly find while dating a Russian bride that she is quite career focused and after marrying an American man she plans on moving to the States and finding work as soon as possible.

Myth #3. Corresponding with Russian women on Russian dating sites is just a scam to get you to send them money.

Absolutely not true! This may happen from time to time, as with any website on the Web, but there actually are several reputable dating sites where you will be dating Russian brides that seriously want to find love and a husband who makes her feel adored.

Sorry you are misinformed. The vast mjioraty of the Russian dating websites are legitimate. Their pricing structures are wildly different. Some run on points and can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars per year. That's because you pay 10 points per letter written, 1 point to read one, 50 points for a video teleconference, and 100 points to send her roses. Exchanging any contact information before a certain point (in spending) is blocked.Others simply charge a fixed rate for one of 2 or 3 levels of access, and you can use it all you want for that fee. One I saw recently gave Gold or total access to all catalogs and all website features for US$ 99 per year. Silver access gave access to perhaps 2/3 of everything (and every girl) for US$ 29 per year.Then there are the tour companies those that sell the Romance Tours . Imagine being flown to an FSU city, and put into a so-so hotel. Then 2 or 3 times during your 2-week stay, about 40 or 50 guys are put into a hotel banquet hall with about 1000 local women (really!) almost all of them MUCH younger than you! You establish contact with them based on 10 minutes of conversation, then another is shoved in front of you for the same. You have a few days to date whoever strikes your fancy. Then you must decide (if at all) who to marry. This is a great way of getting laid, but a horrible way to choose a Life Partner. Most women who attend are looking for Party Time at your expense. Many of the others are trying to earn a Green Card on their back. Bad idea! It's the individual girls who might be potentially scammers but very few statistically. I would say far less than ONE percent. Part of the cost of the more expensive websites is their extensive vetting of the legitimacy of the girls at least that they are who they say they are. Personal interviews, identity checks, and criminal background checks. They also assist with translators (letter, IM, and voice) and with travel bookings. (Essential factoid: do not go to a hotel in the FSU: rent a furnished apartment by the day instead.) The less expensive sites put more responsibility on vetting them on you. Not as difficult as it sounds: Get her physical (NOT mailing) address. Contract one of the Russian florist websites to send her some flowers (NEVER an even number, and NEVER yellow!). Upon request, the florist will request ID, and take a photo of the lady with her flowers. Then the florist will e-mail you the photo. For the cost of a few roses you will have an identity check, an address check, and a photo check. Is her love genuine? THAT you must figure out for yourself just like every other man who wanted to get married . Your biggest pitfall will be communications occasional language problems, but most definitely cultural differences!
