Some tips for western men who want to search for a Russian bride.
1. Decide is what you really want to do:
Searching for a Russian bride is a serious undertaking. It will take commitment from you at all costs, it is not going to be easy or cheap and probably will take a few years, unless you are lucky. If you are not sure you can be 100% committed, you will most likely give up. Think to yourself why you are really interested in searching for Russian brides. Can you afford the process? By this I mean can you afford to spend the money and time to go on a trip to Russia you will probably have to go many times, do you have a home for your new Russian wife to come back to?
If you are committed have time to spare and money to travel to Russia you have a very good chance of success. It may not happen overnight and may even take you a few years to meet your perfect match but it can happen. How do I know this, you may ask? Because I was once in the same situation you are. I made up my mind this was what I wanted to do and then I did not stop until the goal was achieved it took me four years and I met a lot of girls along the way it was the best experience in my life and I have no regrets about it. In fact I decided to live in Russia with my loved one and set up my own Russian brides dating service email2femail.
2. be persistent:
Searching for a Russian bride is not an easy process. You will probably go through many obstacles along the way. For most guys it will involve several trips to Russia do not be surprised if you travel there 5/6 times to meet the right women, look at it this way, if you was meeting 5/6 women from your home town what are the chances you will meet one who you are compatible with and ready to spend the rest of your life with? If you have to make several trips to find the right Russian bride I can assure you it will be worth it. Be prepared for obstacles. Remember Russian brides that have joined dating sites are receiving mail from guys all over the world, some offering fantastic life styles ( although this is not what most Russian women look for) You may be communicating with one women and she suddenly stops writing to you, you may say something to one lady and she takes it as offensive, many things can happen while communicating with a women from a different culture. The most important thing is you are persistent, keep writing and calling. If you stay committed you WILL succeed in the end.
3. Be prolific:
It is best that you use a reputable dating agency and write to as many Russian brides as possible, on average you will receive one reply for every ten you send, so its important to start communicating with a selection of women, until you can narrow down the best choice., try not to fall in love with the first beautiful women that writes to you, use your brain and take your time with your selection. Keep writing and calling even if you think you have found a lady you like, you never know who is round the corner.
4. Only use a dating agency that is specifically for men searching for a Russian bride
Try to keep away from the usual dating agencies, like Plenty of Fish; match.com these sites know nothing about Russia, Russian life or culture, and will be will not be able to give you any advice or help.
Many of the Russian dating sites can give you advise on travelling to Russia, customs, help with finding an apartment ect, you will not find this at Match.com.
5. Photos do not mean everything:
Russian women are beautiful and this fact is known throughout the world, but try not to fall in love with her photo, it could be old, out of date, she could have changed her hair style or colour, if a photo is important to you, then you should ask to see her most recent photos. I have met several women who looked completely different to their photos, so photos do not mean everything.
Don’t decide she’s the one for you just on a photo.
6. Talk to a Real Russian bride
There are a lot of dishonest marriage agencies in Russia, some will steal photos from other profiles and post them in their site, and then you will be under the impression you are communicating with that women, when in fact you are probably communicating with a member of staff from the agency.
How can you be sure?
First you first need to find a reputable Russian brides agency and do a little research. Do they have a phone number and address where you can contact them. Do they have someone you can speak to-in English this is very important?
Does the agency allow you to exchange all of your contact information? Or do they want to be in control of the process? If you are only able to send letters via their email system it will be very difficult to determine if she is real and knows who you are. Try to find an agency that allows you to contact the ladies directly by e mail or telephone; do you really want a third party reading your personal letters to your lady? This can be a big and expensive problem and one of the reasons I set my own dating site up to give guys the chance to cut out any middle man and contact the ladies direct by themselves.
These are just a few tips that may help you while searching for Russian brides.
Best of luck in your searches.
