Quick, which user name grabs your attention: Irina089 or Sexibabi069. Which type of profile picture magnetically draws your eyes: a tent dress or a micro-mini? Thought so. What does this say about the woman you see? Is she a model? A player? More than likely, none of the above.   So why the provocative pictures?    Women showing skin is nothing new Surely you’ve been to a nightclub and seen a parade of mouthwatering babes stroll by in barely-legal skirts and stratospheric cleavage. They might be lawyers, teachers, scientists or students during the day. But to meet Mr. Right, they want to show off their assets. Our ladies are no different. They are beautiful and want you to know it.   What’s behind a sexy user name? A Hot Russian Bride named, say, Irina, could use that as her screen name, or she could grab you by the collar with a sizzling handle. Can you blame her? She wants you to remember her. Also, some women with limited English skills may not realize the full impact some provocative names have.   Don’t judge a book by its cover Everyone is unique, with different hopes, dreams and intentions. You don’t want to be judged on appearance alone, and neither does a lady. So get better acquainted! If you get to know our beautiful women through chat and email, you will see who they are inside. And then you are free to decide which one is right for you.   Do your homework Read our Terms of Use. It sure won’t be the sexiest thing you see on our Web site, but it’s required reading for a successful experience at Hot Russian Brides. The bottom line:   Our ladies are real people. The ladies on Hot Russian Brides are validated through official photo ID’s and are videotaped signing an agreement. We go the extra mile to assure the women are who they say they are. Our ladies are not paid. The ladies on our site are never paid by Hot Russian Brides or our agencies. This helps assure that they have a sincere desire to find a love match. Our ladies can’t demand gifts. They may not ask you for money, presents or favors. You’re certainly welcome to send gifts and flowers through on Online Gift Shop, but demands by ladies are forbidden.  Each lady agrees in writing to abide by our rules. If she violates our terms, she can be kicked off our site, period! We take what we do seriously and approach it ethically. We can’t peer into someone’s soul, but we do our utmost to make sure an Irina by any other name is still Irina!   Next in our series: How to pick your own user name and photo...

Don’t you hate those automated phone systems you hear when you call a company? Press 1 for this, press 2 for that. Even worse are the ones where you have to speak your question, only to hear back “I’m sorry but I did not understand your request. Please try again.”  Customer service can be a nightmare! Fortunately, HotRussianBrides.com provides the friendliest and most informative customer service experience in the industry!   No Hide-and-Seek! We have nothing to hide so you don’t have to search around our site to locate our contact information. Our Web Hostesses are clearly pictured and their knowledgeable assistance and support can be accessed with just one click, 7 days a week!   Answers Right Away!  When you have a question or concern, you want it answered immediately. Other Russian dating sites make you wait hours, or even days, before receiving a reply. At HotRussianBrides.com, you can type your question directly to a Web Hostess and she will respond right away, instant message style. You can even see her acknowledging your concern and typing back her response via the Live Video Chat feature.   Some of our gentlemen members have tried other online dating sites and became quickly frustrated by their pitiful customer service. Knowing there are friendly experts so readily available at HotRussianBrides.com is a feature that is often raved about, such as one member named David who said, “You actually have my questions answered right away and I love it … not like another site where they had no customer service and you had to send emails and wait days for response. It’s really nice to have an agency where they talk to you and I don’t have to send emails. It is so refreshing to see that.”

One of the most frequent questions that gentlemen ask is what information should be in their profiles? Your member profile is often the first thing a lady sees of you and ensuring you include enough information without going overboard can seem extremely tricky. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be, as long as you follow these steps:   Be Complete! The Profile in includes two major sections you can use to describe aspects of yourself: The “About Me” section and the “Looking For” section. Both of these sections are useful both to you, and to the ladies who may be interested in contacting you, so it is important to be as thorough as you can be. Describing yourself as “A Man” and stating that you are looking for “A Woman” is a very vague way of communicating. Nobody will understand anything about you from a description like that, so it is important to fill these sections with good, descriptive, pertinent information about you. Be sure to pay special attention to the “Looking For” section, as what a man looks for in a lady can tell as much as, if not more than, his self-description.   Be Truthful! One of the biggest stereotypes about online and international dating is that a lady can have a selection of photos and statistics that are wildly inaccurate, and when a gentleman goes to meet her, he is disappointed. It’s important to understand that while Hot Russian Brides works to ensure the validity of ladies’ profiles and photographs, we expect our gentlemen to be just as truthful as they expect the ladies to be. This means reporting your correct height and weight, posting pictures of yourself rather than an actor you like and entering in your actual age rather than shaving off the odd decade or two. Believe us, if a lady is truly interested in you she will be interested in you whether you are 22, 42 or 102, but nothing can turn a person off like catching their admirer in a lie. Being truthful is paramount to establishing trust in a relationship and if you are looking into the online dating world your profile is a portrait of you for the world to see. Make sure your depiction is accurate.   Be Appropriate! It doesn’t happen a lot, but every so often we need to delete a gentleman’s profile for containing inappropriate material. Now this doesn’t always mean rude pictures or curse words, frequently it could be that someone decided to try and avoid entering in a description by hitting the same character or word over and over again, or posted pictures of their truck, dog, or favorite vacation spot instead of themselves, or even just included an “About Me” section that didn’t actually contain any information about them. Make sure that when you are sending in pictures, they’re appropriate. Think about it this way – if the picture isn’t something you’d send to your Mom, maybe you should rethink it. If everything goes well in your relationships, they very well may be seen by your lady’s Mom and if you do go to meet her parents you may later regret all those pictures you sent of you in your Speedos. The same goes with your “About Me” and “Looking For” sections. Describing yourself is important, but a ¼ page story about your cat or merely typing the word “Love” over and over again in the “Looking For” section will only make a lady more wary about contacting you.

If you would only prefer to date within a certain age range or want to make sure that you and your lady are astrologically compatible, you can ensure that the lady you are interested in matches your specifications exactly.   The easiest way to do this is to use two of the most powerful tools HotRussianBrides.com offers:  Advanced Search and The Black Book.   Advanced Search When you wish to search for a lady, but want a specific type, the easiest way to narrow it down is to use the Advanced Search. Go ahead and click “Search” on the menu at the top of the page after you log in and this will bring you to a page that includes search criteria as specific as eye color, Chinese Zodiac sign, Country of origin and English fluency level. Once you have picked the criteria that you would like to work with, hit “Search” and you will be presented with all of the ladies on the site who meet your specifications.   Black Book Once you have pulled up your list of Ladies, you can start viewing their profiles and keeping note of the ladies that truly interest you. The easiest way to do this is to add a lady to your favorites list. The Favorites list is a powerful part of our Black Book utility, one of the only contact management systems in the international dating world. Once you add a lady to your “Favorites”, she will appear in the Black Book. This will allow you to keep track of her correspondence with you, the gifts you have sent to her, keep private notes about her, or even schedule events in your calendar if you have an upcoming chat appointment or if you have an important date to remember.
