- I doubt if your ladies will be interested in me...
You never know until you try!
- Are your ladies
All female members are asked to inform us when they no longer consider
themselves available so we could cancel their listings. Every week we
receive 10-20 requests from women to remove their contact details because
they have found somebody they like
We do our best to keep the database up to date, sending ladies
confirmations by email, and ask them to inform us when they don't want to
receive new letters. We also regularly send emails to all women in our
database asking them if they are still available and if there was not any
changes to their personal or contact details. However, some ladies may
neglect or postpone to inform us. If you find out that one of our ladies
is no longer available, please email us at
- I’ve seen the
profiles of some of your ladies on other sites, how can they be genuine?
It would be unfair to ask a lady to be solely represented by our agency. A
lady who has decided she will follow this route will try to optimize her
situation by making her picture and profile available to any Agency who
will publicize her. No-one has a monopoly on this; take a look on other
singles or dating sites.
- What is this site
This site is about men and Russian women who are looking to meet and
correspond with the possibility of finding a loving relationship together.
The ladies we list are from Russia, and the Commonwealth of Independent
States (CIS) which were at one time a part of the USSR. We provide these
ladies with a place to show their pictures and information at no cost to
- Are these girls
Yes, all the girls on this site are actively trying to find a foreign
partner for marriage or a long term relationship. We ask all of our
ladies, on a regular basis, if they wish to be removed from our database
so we only list the girls who are actively looking for a partner.
- Why should I seek
a Russian or Ukrainian lady for my future wife?
Because they are very traditional, caring, sexy, loving, and loyal in
their views of love and marriage. There are no equals to Russian ladies
for faithfulness and loyalty. They stand proudly in times of hardship, and
will devote their love and trust to you for a lifetime. They do not have
the same attitudes toward men as most Western women. Their idea of the
perfect man is someone with a stable job who is not an alcoholic and will
love them and be faithful to them. Looks, income, age and material things
are not so important to them.
As you can see by
viewing the personal ads on this site, some of the most beautiful women in
the world live in Russia. Russian women are extremely realistic and
practical in their expectations for life. They consider good traditional
family values as being very important when choosing a partner for a
lasting relationship. These beautiful women are well educated and seek men
who are 10 to 15 years older than they are. They believe that older men
are more mature, stable, supportive, and reliable for providing a strong
foundation to build a lasting relationship on.
- Why Russian women
seek husbands abroad?
If you ask women this question, the answers will be:
- I want my children to be happy and have a secure future, and it's
impossible with the current situation in Russia.
- There are not enough men in Russia to find a partner.
- Russian men are terrible.
All the statements are true to a greater extent. But at the same time none
of them gives you a real reason. The real and fundamental reason why women
look for a life partner abroad is that they are not happy in their love
life. It's that simple!
A married woman, even
if she is struggling with everyday surviving and not happy with Russian
family model, won't divorce to look for a foreign husband.
Russian women want to
love and be loved. Security and a better life go as a part of the package.
Unfortunately, for most Russian women, the choices in Russia are quite
poor. With the collapse of the Russian government and economy, most men do
not work, or if they do they earn a very poor wage. The high rate of
unemployment and alcoholism among Russian men also makes the women look
elsewhere for good husbands. Moving to another part of the world is not an
easy decision for them. They do not wish to leave their country but having
a family is very important to them so they decide that if they can find a
good husband elsewhere then they are willing to move to a different
These ladies are
marriage-minded, highly educated, loyal, intelligent, beautiful, loving,
single women seeking correspondence, friendship, love, and marriage. They
have decided to leave the only life they know in order to build a new life
with the right man.
They wait for their
hopes and dreams to come true. To find a kind, caring man to love and
create a loving happy family. If you are you looking for a lifetime
partner? If you are ready to begin the most exciting adventure you will
ever experience? Russian & Ukrainian women are some of the most beautiful,
devoted and faithful ladies in the world.
- I have sent a
letter to a lady I really liked, but she didn’t answer to me, and I don’t
know if I should give up or try again?
First of all you have to remember that Internet at home is still a luxury
thing for many Russians, so give her at least 3-4 days to answer to you.
If you didn’t get an answer, try to send a small message – just do double
check if she got your first letter - it could happen that letter was lost
by an Internet provider and she didn’t have idea that you wrote to her.
- Are Russian
women's personalities different from Western women?
Yes, they are a bit different. They don't have a different type of
character, and they also love shopping and chatting. They are human beings
and they are definitely not perfect. The main difference is that they are
much more patient and can tolerate things that Western women will never be
able to bear. They are more considerate and dependable. They are partners,
difference is that Russian women (and Russians in general) have very low
self-esteem. While Western women think that they are goddesses and able to
cope with anything on their own, a Russian woman will rarely leave a bad
(really bad) husband because of the fear that she won't find another one.
For many years the state and men have been oppressing them, and they don't
think much about themselves.
In Russia there is a
shortage of good men available for marriage. This is due to a higher death
rate among Russian men, these men have one of the lowest life expectancies
rates of any developed country. Also due to the poor economic situation in
Russia many men do not want the added responsibility of a wife and family
and can not support them.
Western men have a
reputation for treating their wives and family very well, they are viewed
as being more loyal, reliable, sober, and intelligent than most Russian
Russian women are well
groomed, stylish and intelligent (as are Russians in general) but they pay
much less attention to sport and other aspects of healthy life-style.
Nevertheless, they are rarely overweight - probably, because of permanent
stress and food that is expensive. And they still walk a lot because they
don't have cars.
- Are Russian women
interested in living in any other countries apart from America?
Many women are
interested in particular countries like Japan, Brazil, New Zealand,
Germany, Italy, France, England, Australia, Canada and others. Usually the
reason for that are family members or friends who are staying there.
Actually, very few
women would like to go only to the US, most of them don't mind about a
country if it's the right man.
- I would like to
write to some Russian ladies but I am not out to look for a wife
immediately, rather a friend first and then see what happens. Do ladies
You can state clearly
from the very beginning that you are interested in establishing friendship
first. The majority of the women seeking partners do expect more, but if
they decide to keep contact with you, it will mean that they accept your
There is nothing wrong
with your position, and if you don't feel ready for starting a long term
relationship right now, you may try to start with friendship. Beware
though, that a lady can accept somebody else's offer, even if she really
likes you, just because she is not sure about your intentions.
- Can Russian women
Most of the ladies who
apply to dating agencies can at least read and understand English. About
25% can speak some English, and probably 10% speak English well. In bigger
cities like Moscow and St Petersburg.
- What kind of a
sense of humor do Russian women generally have? Do they laugh a lot or
Russians have a great
sense of humor, otherwise they won't be able to survive in this country.
They laugh about things instead of complaining.
Though they smile very little it the streets and in everyday life, it's
not because they have no sense of humor, but because they do not usually
smile without a reason. If you meet somebody's sight, she will usually
just look back but never smile, as in Russia it's not appropriate to smile
The sense of humor they
have is also different. Russians prefer very fine type of jokes, with
indirect humor that westerners would describe as dry. Russians do not find
it funny when somebody falls or the like, and they consider many western
comedies being silly. Loud laughing at background in sitcoms they find
irritating and stupid. When somebody makes a joke or tells a funny story,
he will usually do it with very serious expression on the face, and he
will spoil everything if laughs with others.
- Is there a
considerable difference between Russian and other women of the former
Soviet Union - for example, Ukrainian or Belarus?
There are some
particular cultural differences between women from different countries of
the former Soviet Union but in general all information on our site is
applicable to women from all the countries. The differences are not
Ukrainian women are
more outgoing and open, Russians are more reserved. At the same time a
Ukrainian wife is more likely to argue about the things than a Russian.
But of course that mostly depends on personality not nationality.
- Would a Russian
lady be interested in living in a small town?
The majority of Russian
ladies seem to be rather cosmopolitan. The reason is that in Russia living
in a small town or village is a nightmare. There are very poor life
conditions, dirtiness, no entertainment, no goods to buy, even TV
reception may be not available. Russian ladies do not know and understand
the difference between small towns in Russia and abroad, and they just
have this instinctive fear towards small towns.
Our advice is to use
the following tactics when writing your letters to ladies:
1. Do not apply to
women from Moscow or St. Petersburg. These cities have completely
different conditions of life from the rest of Russia. Some foreigners told
me that Moscow and St. Petersburg were not Russian cities, they are rather
European. Women there have better chances to meet foreigners as many
agencies organize tours with socials to those destinations, and ladies are
becoming spoilt and demanding.
2. Tell more about your
town, its entertainment, restaurants and cafes, TV reception and other
attractions, weather conditions etc. - everything that you like there. Do
not try too hard - you must just say how nice the place is and why you
like to live there. If you stay there because one can make very good
living, mention it. Send a nice picture featuring you city in summer -
with flowers or a lake, or anything nice and warm. Tell her where you can
go for better entertainment like opera or theatre, and how far the place
- What Russian women
think about interracial marriages?
They simply do not
think about them. The majority of Russian women won't consider an
interracial marriage. As you know, there are no people of African origin
in Russia, so ladies do not put the requirement about race on their lists.
For them it's natural that they consider themselves applying only to men
of their race.
There are native
inhabitants of Asian race in Russia (Bashkir, Bouryat, Koreans and
others), and this type of interracial marriage was not uncommon in the
past and still takes place. They don't talk about interracial marriages,
it's not an issue there. Russians are proud that they don't have racial
There is no prejudice
towards such marriages. They don't condemn somebody else's marriage to a
person of a different race. At the same time women seldom will consider it
as a personal option.
According to our
questionnaire, about 85% of ladies would like to meet a white man; 10%
will consider a man of Asian origin, and 5% don't mind about a race of
their future partner.
- Will you loose
time pursuing marriage to a lady from Russia if you are not white?
It depends. For Russian
ladies, if you look white, you are white. They do not separate Hispanic
and whites. They adore mulattos, especially of the lighter color. American
and Europeans would have much better chance then a colored man from
Quite a few ladies will
consider a man of Asian origin as an option, though you've got less
chances than a white guy, and you will have to try harder. We also know
about successful relationships black/multiracial men had with ladies from
Russia. So, it is possible, but be prepared for rejection from some women
because of your race. We had many Asian clients, and a black client, too.
They had received fairly good response to their ads, and established good
contacts with nice ladies.
- I liked one of the
ladies on our pages, but in her ad it stays that she is looking for a man
till 45 and I am 50. What should I do?
We recommend you to
write to her in spite of that. Everything is individual, so if you are
determined and have serious intentions – it will depend on you if you will
be able to conquer her attention. Just don’t give up on something you
- I am 60-something
and I would like to find a mate in Russia, but don't want to be a 'door
mat' so she can get here and then dump me. How should I act?
A good idea may be a
personal ad in Russia. Just make your requirements clear, so you will
receive responses only from the ladies who meet them.
There are many ladies
in Russia in their 40's who will be interested in you yourself. (Just do
not consider finding a 20-year-old girl - you can find one, but your
marriage will rarely last longer than 2 years...) It's almost impossible
for a woman over 40 to find a marriage partner in Russia. Men whether have
been already married, or they are not able to be husbands because of poor
health condition or alcohol addiction. Many women apply to agencies hoping
to find a husband - somewhere...
- Is it true that
nearly 80 percent of Russian women smoke?
No, it's not true. Some
of Russian women do smoke but not more than 5-10%. In the large cities
like Moscow or St Petersburg, the percentage can be probably about 15%.
- What about stories of
ladies coming to foreign countries and leaving shortly after the marriage?
It may happen. Not that
often as media say, but it is a fact of reality. The biggest danger of the
myths the dating agencies spread is that they make men hope that a young
beautiful Russian lady will love an old unattractive foreign man just
because he lives in a better country and can guarantee her security.
Some 50-year-old men
dream about a 18-year-old girl, find her, marry, and then say that Russian
women just want to get into the country. They would have never been in
such a situation if pursued marriage to a woman 35+.
In Russia people don't
live decently, and some women are ready to do anything to live a better
life. Once in a relationship with a foreign guy, a woman feels happy to be
loved and cared, and grateful for changing her life for the better. She
may even feel in love when it's just a temporary intoxication.
Russian women are used
to sacrificing themselves for children, and if she has a child, she can
agree to almost anything to ensure that he is safe, has food and money for
education. A woman can be unhappy in her marriage and still feel lucky to
have a better than average life standards. Russian woman is entitled to
feel happy if her husband does not drink and has a good job, nobody talks
about love, it's not important. If a woman has a rich husband (a person
owing a car, a flat, and earning more than $400 a month), people will
think she is crazy or stupid if leaving him for love.
But good standards of
living are everything only for the poverty-ridden. When women are in a
country like Switzerland, Australia or USA, their attitude changes very
quickly. Love and rewarding sexual life are important conditions of
happiness. A lady was probably not going to divorce her older husband from
the very beginning, but at a later stage she starts to feel miserable and
realizes that she plugged herself into a worse situation than she was
previously in. It's two different worlds, not just two different cultures.
A professor from a
Canadian university told us that he met a couple of men on board a plane
to Russia who flew there for a "marriage tour". He characterized them as
"bad". He said they were arrogant, obviously had problems with health, and
were drinking too much. One of them complained that he was previously
married to a Russian woman but she left him a year after the marriage. The
professor said he felt sorry - for the woman, because she had stayed with
this man for the whole year. He said that he would have run away from him
in a couple of days if he was her. And this man was intending to find
another lady for marriage in Russia - again, 20-30 years younger.
It's important that you
both love each other, otherwise your marriage won't work. A woman can say
"I love you" when she doesn't, it's just another Russian women's feature.
They are not able to refuse when a man insists. You must not fool
yourself. You will always feel if it's a true feeling.
We don't believe that
any woman would like to get married to just divorce her husband in 2-3
years, if she can get married for love.
surprisingly non-materialistic when it's about true love. You may think
that we are not consistent saying that, but the truth is that Russians are
not consistent. They think with their hearts and feelings. They can have
beliefs but act in the opposite way because of feelings. They will follow
their decisions made by mind until true feelings get involved. (It's why
sometimes westerners think that Russians are irrational. They are rational
but in their own way.)
A successful marriage
can only be based on love and mutual respect whether it's a Russian woman
or a Western one. Your foreign citizenship can make you more attractive to
Russian ladies but it can't make your marriage more successful. Russian
women make good wives - that's true, but only if she wants to be your
- Why is alcohol
abuse in Russia pervasive? Can I not drink when offered?
Alcohol is the only
affordable way to have some fun and get rid of the hard reality of
everyday fight for survival. The other things like gyms, travel, arts,
concerts etc are too expensive. It's also always was a part of culture,
and skills to drink a lot and not get drunk are considered to be a part of
"the real man" image. You don't have to drink, if you don't wan to. You
may say that you are sick and use medicine that does not allow using any
alcohol, or just take a sip and put your glass back. Or just say that you
are strongly against drinking - Russians are aware that many foreigners
are not 100% right in their heads ;-)
- Will I get hassled
by government when visiting Russia?
It's not a Soviet Union
and the times of cold war. The government doesn't care about foreign
tourists anymore, they have too many things to think of.
- How much money
would it cost to travel to Russia from the United States? How much does it
take to survive a day in Russia?
It depends on you - how
expensive your habits are, on the period you are going to stay and on the
city you are visiting. Moscow and St. Petersburg are very expensive. You
may hope it will be enough to have about US $150 for a day in cash or
travel checks. Anyway, you should have your credit card with you - Russia
is unpredictable, and you may need some extra money. Make sure that all
your travel arrangements are prepaid, and book through a well-established
travel agency or Internet site.
- How do most
Russian ladies fare being so far away from home, is homesickness a
Yes, in the very
beginning it's a problem. Women feel very lonely and even cry sometimes. A
woman does not know the country and people, she experiences difficulties
with the simplest things like buying stuff in a supermarket, she can't
fluently communicate. But women don't want to go back to Russia. They miss
their friends and family but not the country itself. Some women don't
realize how big the difference is between Russia/Ukraine and other
countries. When they have lived for a while in a country like Italy,
Canada or Japan, they get used to it quickly.
- Are the women on
your service really interested in me, or just coming to my country?
There are a variety of
reasons as to why the women choose to join our service. It has been our
experience that the primary objective of these women is to find a loyal,
dependable, stable man with whom they can build a happy and loving family.
These women are now searching outside of their country for this because
for whatever reason or reasons they have not yet been able to find that
one special person. In Russia for instance, there is a serious shortage of
Russian men due to a combination of war and the high male death ratio.
Alcoholism is also a very serious problem affecting many Russian males. A
poor economic environment causes many men to shun the responsibilities of
a wife and family. A family is very important to the vast majority of
these women, thus they are forced to expand their search for their mate.
The Internet has also opened up a whole new world of opportunities to
these women that their mothers never enjoyed. They are no longer confined
to their own cities and towns when searching for a husband. They can now
search the world over for the right person.
- Is age an
Studies show men and
women seek different goals in marital partners. Men seek youth and beauty.
Women seek mature, older, healthy, intelligent, successful, stable men who
will love and respect them, with the ability to protect and provide for
the family. It is a fact of life. In many other cultures, such as the
Russian culture, the women tend to have much more reasonable expectations.
They have not yet been media programmed with a youth-oriented outlook on
life. Many Russian men lack a certain maturity towards family and
relationships. Most Russian women are extremely mature for their years.
Russian women view an
older man as being more reliable, stable, successful and secure. These
ladies are extremely mature and practical for their age. These women are
looking for a good stable partner whom they can trust and rely on for
support as well as being a good provider for a family. It is not unusual
for a Russian woman to marry a man 15 to 20 years older.
We attempt to be as
diverse as possible. We have women on our database from all walks of life,
different cultures, and varying age groups. Age does become a factor when
choosing whom you will be most compatible with; however, do not let it
become a barrier. For many women an older person represents stability,
security and wisdom. In many cultures it is not uncommon to see major age
differences between spouses.
- When do you update
your web site?
The data on our web
site is updated weekly. Women who are engaged, married or no longer
available are removed within 72 hours.
- What about the
disadvantages? Isn't the language barrier a problem?
Naturally, the cultural
differences mentioned above that can add the “spark” can also be a source
of friction in a marriage. There can be major differences regarding
everything from the marriage ceremony itself to how the children are
raised. However, like most problems in life between people, they can be
solved if both parties are truly committed to the overall relationship.
The language barrier
can and will be a problem for couples in which at least one of the
partners is not fluent in both languages. Generally, foreign brides-to-be
learn the language of the country in which they’ll be living, because
they’ll need it not only to communicate with their new husbands, but to
survive on a daily basis. This is usually not a problem, because the women
who are serious about finding husbands abroad prepare themselves by
studying English or German or the language of whatever country they’re
most interested in residing. And English has been taught to all students
in Russian and Eastern European secondary for the past few decades, so
just about everyone who needs to speak fluent English has a solid base
from which to start.
- Are the women on
your site all still single, and genuine?
Everyone in our album
is single, has not been purchased from any other site or intermediary, and
is as genuine in her intentions as we are humanly able to ascertain from
both direct written and spoken communication. To that end, if someone
begins acting in less than honorable ways, she is removed from the album.
Once a lady has found her special someone, she, too, is removed from our
site. Women can request to be removed at any time, and we also will
investigate any complaints of unusual or insincere behavior from our
clients. We won't ever hesitate to remove someone if their behavior
demands it. Having a solid, honorable relationship is much, much more
important for us than a few extra dollars.
- Looking at your
photo album I see hundreds of beautiful women and I cannot believe they
all cannot find a man there in Russia?
It is a tragedy of this
country... So many beautiful, educated, cultured, intelligent women and...
no men to start a family with. Just the official info: there are 10
million women more in Russia than men... Let's see further. Unfortunately
so many men who are still alive are hard to be called "men" any more...
Drugs and vodka do their job. They are lost for society and for women as
potential husbands. The percentage of such "lost" men is awfully high. We
don't have any official numbers but we believe there are much more than 10
million. So, HOW MANY single women who are not able to meet a men we see??
We suspect if ALL European men get married in Russia there still will be
thousands and thousands single beautiful women there.
- How to make a
You never know in
advance if this certain girl can be match for you... Sometimes two nicest
and most intelligent people cannot be together because of any mysterious
reasons that are not ever visible for others as well as for them, too! But
anyway, you have to start somehow. So, try to tell yourself first what are
the most important SIMPLE issues for you in a woman that can be your wife:
if you are agree she to have children, if her education is important for
you, if her height or weight are important, etc. Look at the photos and
see which girls appeal to you the most.
- I was scammed a
few times. How can I know if your ladies are honest?
We know about scams
maybe more than anybody else because we provide investigations for men at
the cases they feel something wrong about the lady they corresponded with.
Yes, it happens. Some dishonest people use girls or just beautiful photos
that they get in magazines or on other sites and make money on men who
think they correspond with a real girl. Men are asked for money "For
corresponding/translation service", "I can get a visitor's visa to the US
but I need $2.000.00 for this", "For tickets to visit you, my dear", etc.
We remove all and each lady if we get any compromising info about her
wrong behavior or intentions.
