Many online daters enjoy the guiltless freedom to flirt with whomever they choose and not have to worry about face-to-face rejection. But for those who are seeking a serious lifelong relationship, traditional online dating sites can be taxing and filled with pitfalls.   What We Aren’t If you are seeking a mail order Russian bride, one who you meet online and then she is sent to your door, then please go to another web site. HotRussianBrides.com is a dating site for men seeking a meaningful relationship with a Russian or Ukrainian woman.

Imagine that you have found a special lady on HotRussianBrides.com. You send her many letters, chat with her online and on camera, and gradually get to know her. Things go well and one day you suggest visiting the lady in Russia. She agrees and you make the necessary arrangements. What an exciting time! A visit means a wedding is surely around the corner, right? Not necessarily. While some visits do result in an immediate marriage, gentlemen should not automatically expect one. A first meeting is a valuable opportunity for a man to get to know his special lady and for the couple to jointly decide on the future of their relationship. Sometimes a lady and a gentleman will fall in love at their first meeting, other times the chemistry may not be there and the two may choose to part ways. While both parties would obviously prefer a blissful, romantic visit, nothing is guaranteed and a gentleman should keep this in mind before making a long journey.     Unfortunately, some men blame the ladies when their visits don’t live up to the romantic ideal. While this is an understandable reaction, it is not a particularly fair one. If your visit does not go as well as you’d hoped, it does not mean that the lady is a scammer or that she was never serious about you. It merely means that she respects you enough to be honest about her feelings. Remember, the best relationships are built on honesty and open communication, and a lady should never be afraid to express her true feelings. Despite the final outcome, the first meeting should be an exciting and special time that both parties will remember forever. Men who try to keep their expectations in check and let things progress naturally often have a better experience than those who demand a fairy tale ending.

Many men assume that young women only want to date older men for their money. However, this is not necessarily true. There are several reasons why a woman in her early twenties may be interested in a man in his thirties or forties. Want to know more? Here are three reasons why a young woman might like to date men several years her senior. However, please keep in mind that it's important to keep your expectations realistic. It's very rare that a woman in her twenties will ever be compatible with a man in his seventies or eighties.   Stability Stability is perhaps the most common reason younger women date or marry older men. Unlike their younger male counterparts, older men are more likely to hold a steady job, own a home, and have a firm grasp on their finances. This is important to family-orientated women like those in Russia, as the ladies want to know they’ll have a safe, secure place to settle with their partner and start a family.   Maturity You’ve probably heard that women mature faster than men, so it's easy to see why a young woman might be interested in an older man. While a young man may want to booze it up at the bar every weekend or hit the hottest nightspots, an older man is more likely to enjoy a quiet evening at home with his significant other. This is crucial to a young woman who is more interested in romance than partying.   Ready for Commitment In Russian society, women are expected to marry in their early twenties while men generally don’t consider marriage until their thirties. Other countries harbor similar expectations, and this disconnect has caused many young, commitment-minded women to seek older men who are ready to settle down. Young women are less likely to worry that an older man will wander off to sow his wild oats or dump her because he’s afraid of commitment.  If you’re an older man, don’t let age get in the way of finding your perfect match. There are plenty of young women on HotRussianBrides.com who are open to dating a man several years her senior. Don’t believe me? Check out our Featured Couples page where you will find many examples of men finding true love with younger women.

One of the most common concerns among HotRussianBride members is whether or not our girls on our site are “real.” Though it seems simple enough, the gentlemen on our site often have different interpretations of the word real which can lead to a lot of confusion. So exactly what do we mean when we say the girls on HotRussianBrides are real? Read on to find out.   What We Mean By Real:   What you see is what you get.HotRussianBrides goes to great lengths to ensure that the women members see on the site are the same women they chat with. How do we do this? We will not list any lady on our site until we have secured a valid picture ID. When the lady’s profile appears on the site, our graphic designers compare her ID photos, date of birth, and other data to ensure the lady’s profile information is legit. We also offer live video streaming and introduction videos so that our customers can see the ladies for themselves. The girls on the site are single women who are genuinely seeking love and romance.Before we list a lady on our site, one of our agency representatives will conduct an extensive interview with the would-be Hot Russian bride to make sure her intentions are real. In addition, we require all of our ladies to record and submit a validation video stating that that they are using the service of their own free will, that they will not accept money to use the site, and that they will not request money or gifts from any of our gentlemen members. The ladies must also sign an agreement outlining the same stipulations. In addition, we take all scamming allegations very seriously and will investigate any complaint.   What We Do NOT Mean By Real: The women on HotRussianBrides will marry any member who asks.Some gentlemen are under the mistaken impression that the women on our site can be purchased for marriage. This is simply not true. Members cannot pay a flat fee for a Russian bride, nor should they expect a woman to automatically accept a marriage proposal just because a man is paying to speak to her. All of the ladies on our site are free to do as they wish and gentlemen should accept that this does not make a woman any less real. What seems more real to you: a woman who marries a man she truly loves or one who marries a man solely because he is a paying customer?   The ladies on HotRussianBrides.com are obligated to do what members want because the members are paying to speak with them.Our members should not expect the women on HotRussianBrides to meet their every request simply because the members are paying to use the site. The women are not required to send sexy photos on demand, they do not have to chat with every member who shows an interest, nor do they have to be exceedingly polite.  The ladies on HotRussianBrides are independent women, each with their own hopes and desires, likes and dislikes. How a woman reacts to a member’s advances and requests depends on the lady herself. By the way, don’t ever mention membership fees when chatting with a lady. No woman wants to hear about how much money a man spends to date her.   Now that you know what you can expect from our site, why not log onto HotRussianBrides.com and find a real, beautiful woman to chat with today?

Many men come to HotRussianBrides.com with the intention of getting married. While many of our members have found lifelong partners, other gentlemen are perplexed when their search for a future wife doesn’t go as expected. So why are some men successful and others not? It’s all in how they approach the search. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind in your hunt for a Russian bride.   Don’t Take Things Too Fast A few men on our site are understandably excited by the beautiful and intelligent women on HotRussianBrides and want to find a lady to marry right away. They narrow down their search, single out a special lady, and begin corresponding with her. After a few months, or even a few weeks, the gentlemen may suggest marriage and is shocked when the lady does not agree. So what gives? It’s likely too soon. Russian women, like women everywhere, can be frightened off by suitors who move too fast. Take your time, get to know the lady, and see how things progress. The old saying, “good things come to those who wait” is a good axiom to keep in mind.   Remember That the Ladies Aren’t Available on Demand Despite our name and preconceived notions about the so-called “mail order bride” industry, HotRussianBrides cannot guarantee you will find a Russian bride at the time of your choosing. Unlike pioneer days, men can no longer choose a woman from a catalog and have her shipped to their door. Our ladies are not only beautiful and sexy, they are also intelligent and independent, and most will not marry a gentleman just because he wants her to.  Woo your Russian lady, get to know her, make sure she is the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with and vice versa. Besides, a relationship based on mutual love and respect is far more rewarding than one based on an appearance in a catalog. If you keep these tips in mind when conducting your search, you may just find the lady of your dreams a little sooner. Not convinced? Check out our Testimonials and Featured Couples page to read about real men who found real love on HotRussianBrides.com.

You may wonder – with so many fascinating and beautiful places in Russia and Ukraine, why on earth would a Russian or  Ukrainian woman want to leave her home country to begin a life somewhere else? Here are just a few of the reasons Russian women take to the internet to search for the man of their dreams. Better Economic and Cultural Opportunities Opportunities for women to make more money are plentiful outside Russia. Many women are well-educated, but do not have access to a wide-ranging job market. Jobs in which they can put their skills to use are abundant outside Russia. Additionally, there is a desire among some women to see and experience the customs and traditions of a new culture. Poor Treatment from Russian Men According to the ladies on our Website, there tends to be a lack of chivalry among Russian men. Men often treat their Russian women with indifference or disinterest. Russian men are also inclined to participate in a hard-partying lifestyle – a lifestyle of which the women tire easily. Russian women desire to be treated with the courtesy and attention of a gentleman. Oftentimes, the only place they can receive such courtesy and attention is from foreign men, who are more traditional and romantic in their approach to women. Lack of Russian Men Although there may be some decent Russian men out there, circumstances make them few and far between. All told, single Russian women still outnumber their male counterparts by a ratio of nearly 4-to-1. This disparity is attributable to many factors, including population losses suffered in Russia during World War II. With a lack of men in general, and a lack of good men in particular, it makes sense that a Russian woman would look beyond her borders for a man to be with. More Traditional Family Values As odd as it may seem, many Russian women find it difficult to find a man who believes in a traditional family. The women place a strong importance on marriage and child rearing and believe it is primarily the responsibility of women to tend to the family’s needs. At the same time, foreign men are generally regarded as being more devoted to their families, as well as their wives, than Russian men. While Russian women take pride in their native country, the fact is that better opportunities for romance, careers and a fulfilling life lie elsewhere. For one special lady, that opportunity could lie with you. So log on to HotRussianBrides.com right now and start the search for your Russian bride.
