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?

Two weeks ago, we shared the top 10 turn offs for Russian women as determined by a recent survey conducted by HotRussianBrides.com. While those turn offs made the top of the list, they are by no means the only behaviors to avoid. Below you will find 10 more traits that Russian women can’t stand, along with tips and advice to keep you from turning the lovely ladies off. As before, keep these turn offs in mind when interacting with the women on HotRussianBrides.com and you may just see better results. Men Who Use Bad LanguageNo woman likes a man with a dirty mouth. Watch what you say (and write) when chatting on HotRussianBrides. This is true for video chat, live chat, and email. While the occasional slipup won’t send a lady running for the hills, try to make an effort to keep it clean. Close-Minded MenIt’s very important to keep an open mind when conversing with someone from another country. Due to differences in cultures, you and the ladies on HotRussianBrides are bound to have different views of the world, and that’s okay. Just be sure to respect her opinions, even if they clash with your own. While there is nothing wrong with a little spirited debate, disrespecting a woman’s beliefs or implying that your country and culture is superior to hers will only make you seem like a pompous jerk. StubbornnessNo one likes a stubborn person. Men (and women) who unreasonably cling to a rigid point of view risk being seen as irritating know-it-alls, so make an effort to keep an open mind. Remember, it’s okay to listen to other points of views and to change your mind when necessary. Uneducated MenJust as education is a turn on for Russian women, men who are uneducated turn Russian women off. While you don’t have hold a Ph.D., or even a college degree to keep a woman’s interest, a basic knowledge of history, geography, and current events will take you far.  Men with a Poor Sense of HumorAs we mentioned in a recent article, a sense of humor is the number one turn on for Russian women. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that men with a poor sense of humor aren’t going to win any fans. When chatting with a lady, try to tell a joke or share a funny story, listen appreciatively when she does the same, and laugh at yourself if you say something silly or make a mistake. Men who take life too seriously are simply no fun. Lack of GoalsRussian women like men with goals and ambition, not someone who is content to sit at home while life passes them by. While you don’t have to aspire to be an astronaut or the next U.S. president, it helps to have some sort of plan for your life and your career. Share your hopes and dreams with a special lady and she’ll see you for the intelligent, ambitious man that you are. Poor CommunicatorsIt’s a fact that women like men who are good communicators. When chatting with a Russian lady, no matter what the medium, try to state your ideas clearly and simply so as to avoid any confusion. Use complete sentences, along with proper grammar and punctuation. Men who mumble unintelligibly in video chats or who compose grammar-challenged messages risk being brushed off and misunderstood. Anti-Social BehaviorWhile it may seem obvious, avoid any anti-social behavior when chatting with a Russian woman. Name calling, threats, and other hostilities are all big no-nos. Sometimes extreme shyness can be mistaken for anti-social behavior so make an effort to be friendly. ImmaturityNo woman wants to feel as if she’s dating her younger brother, so be sure to behave like a mature adult. Immature behavior can include telling off-color jokes, complaining when you don’t get your way, shirking responsibility, behaving crudely, etc. Don’t treat a lady the way you would your male friends. Lack of ConfidenceWomen like confident men, so don’t be afraid to let your personality shine. Smile, make eye contact, share your thoughts and ideas. Men who have a low opinion of themselves are not likely to attract others. If you don’t have confidence, fake it until it feels natural. Remember, everyone has something to offer so never feel like you’re not good enough to snag a hot Russian bride. Now that you know what turns Russian women off, why not log onto HotRussianBrides.com and put your knowledge to the test?   For more information about what turns Russian women on and off, please see “Survey Says Russian Women Like a Good Laugh” and “Top 10 Turn Offs for Russian Women.”

Finding your perfect match is no easy task, but it’s certainly not impossible. Whether you’re searching for love online or in person, establishing a game plan can greatly improve your chances of finding love. Below are five easy things you can do to make your search on Hot Russian Brides go a little smoother.      Establish Your Dating Criteria The first, and most important, thing you need to do before starting your search is to figure out what kind of lady you’re looking for. Think of your dream girl. What is she like? Is she a fun-loving blond who likes sports? A thirty-something brunette who enjoys reading and watching horror movies?  Try to form a clear idea about the kind of woman you want rather than just having a fuzzy notion. If it helps, write down the traits you desire in a lady and keep it near the computer for handy reference.   Search the Site for Women Who Meet Your Criteria Once you have a good idea about the kind of lady you’d like to meet, log on to HotRussianBrides.com and search for women who meet your specifications. One of the exciting features on Hot Russian Brides is the advanced search tool. Here, gentlemen can search by age, weight, religion, zodiac compatibility, and much more.  Once you’ve conducted a detailed search, a list of potential matches will appear on your screen.   Initiate Correspondence with Women Who Catch Your Eye Now that you have a list of potential Russian brides, it’s time to check out the ladies’ profiles and send a few introduction letters. There’s no magic number of women to contact, just be sure to keep your level of correspondence manageable. If over a hundred women meet your dream girl criteria, only send letters to those who interest you the most. While you may be tempted to send a blanket introduction letter to as many women as possible, it’s best to select just a few women and tailor your letter to their individual personalities.    Only Respond to Messages from Women Who Meet Your Criteria Many gentlemen on Hot Russian Brides feel obligated to respond to every woman who contacts them. However, due to the large number of women on our site, this is simply an impossible task. Being selective is one easy way to avoid being overwhelmed by incoming mail. Only respond to women who meet your established criteria. Again, it’s best to keep a manageable amount of correspondence.    Move on When Necessary Feel free to move on if you’re no longer interested in a particular lady. Dragging out correspondence once you’ve lost interest can be a waste of time for both parties. End things tactfully and both you and the lady will be free to find your perfect matches.   Utilize the Special Features on HotRussianBrides HotRussianBrides.com offers a variety of special features that will help you better organize your search. The Favorites tool allows you to bookmark women you find particularly attractive. If one of the ladies in your Favorites folder also bookmarks you, she will appear in the My Matches tool. This is a great way to decide which ladies to write to first. In the My Admirers folder, you will see women who have added you to their Favorites. If you’re worried about confusing one lady’s message with another, our Black Book tool is an excellent resource for keeping track of who wrote what.   Now that you know exactly what to do to find your ideal Russian lady, why not log onto HotRussianBrides.com and put your new knowledge to use? It’s time to find your perfect match!
