When will the term “mail order bride” be replaced by something more current like “cyber spouse” or “world wide wife”? Millions of men are using the Internet to find ideal brides from all over the world. This practice has certainly evolved from placing orders and receiving shipments. Online dating and matchmaking has become a very popular and effective method of achieving marital bliss.   The Beginning Dating back to the 1600’s, the first American settlers became bored of the usual bar maids and ladies of the night for companionship. With loving and loyal women scarce in their pioneer population, they began writing letters to women back in Europe. After some correspondence, the men would arrange for the women to travel to America, they would marry, and begin their new life together. Another practice around the same time period was that mail order brides were shipped from London to America as payment for items such as tobacco. Men could take their pick from the shipment and a marriage would soon follow.   The Resurgence Mail order brides became widely popular across the globe in the 1980’s with men seeking mostly Asian women from countries such as the Philippines and Thailand. Then with the fall of the Soviet Union, Russian and Ukrainian women joined the pool of available bachelorettes. Their beauty and intelligence made Russian mail order brides an instant favorite. This match making system was originally a printed catalog where men could peruse the pages, read the profiles, and select a wife. Then in the 1990’s, the Internet replaced the archaic catalog method. This sped up, as well as transformed, the mail order bride industry.   The Modern Mail Order Bride Long gone are the days where men simply pick and purchase a foreign wife. The label of “mail order bride” still lingers, however the process today is an online match making system where marriage is decided upon by both the gentleman and the lady. The gentlemen are typically open-minded, intelligent bachelors that find women from different cultures more intriguing than “the girl next door”. The ladies are outnumbered by the men in their countries and seek companionship, stability, and new opportunities with their ideal husband.   Mail order bride and online match making services result in 4,000 to 6,000 marriages per year, as reported by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, adding that these marriages appear to have a lower divorce rate than the nation as a whole. As long as people are finding partners and building happy lives together, who cares what the process is called? There is a hot Russian bride out there for you so start searching today!

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?

It may come from time to time that you feel the need to alter your profile here on Hot Russian Brides. Reasons for this could be that you wanted to expand your descriptions of yourself, or be more specific about the type of lady you're searching for. You may have moved and wanted to update your area or have incorrectly entered in some personal information and need to update.   HotRussianBrides.com makes it easy for our members to update their profile whenever they are ready to do so. All you need to do is to log into your account, hot the "My Account" button and then click "View/Edit Profile" from the right side of the page. This will give you control over many elements of your profile including height, weight, profession, language skills and your about me/looking for sections.   We recommend filling out the "About Me" and "Looking For" sections as completely as you can. This will ensure that the ladies are knowledgeable and comfortable with who you are and what you are looking for. When we have to ask a member to change their profile, 9 times out of 10 it is because they haven't filled out these descriptions, have only entered in a couple of words or have tried to avoid filling them out by entering a string of dashes or random letters. We recommend using a description of at least 50 characters at the bare minimum.   If you need to change other information on your personal account, you can access this from the My Account menu too, just choose "Edit My Account" and you'll be able to change your password, email, name, date of birth and many other variables. Please ensure that we have the most recent and correct information on file for you, as if you are looking to meet a lady in the future you very well could have issues with the paperwork for IMBRA and VISAs if an incorrect name or date of birth is on your profile.

Every country has its own wedding traditions rooted in the region’s history and culture.  Russia is certainly no exception.  While many modern Russian brides are open to parting from tradition and having a modern “Westernized” wedding, it can be fun to learn about her culture’s rituals and beliefs while planning your big day together.  Who knows, you may decide you like some of these rituals and end up incorporating them into your own wedding!  Here are a few interesting traditions to keep in mind!      Stemming from the similarity in pronunciation to the word mayatsa, which means “to suffer,” Russian believe that a marriage conducted in May is doomed to be an unhappy one.  May is viewed as a difficult month and any activity taken up during that month is destined to fail.   During the reception, friends will “kidnap” the bride and hold her for ransom.  It is up to the groom to notice her absence and then negotiate a payment to her kidnappers for her safe return.   Russians believe that whichever newlywed steps onto the wedding carpet first at the Registry Office is the one who will become the head of the family.    Newlyweds receive salt and bread from their families to ensure they experience good luck and prosperity during their marriage.   Wedding guests who are eager to be married themselves should covertly pull the tablecloth to themselves at the reception dinner.    It is considered to be a bad omen if anything bad happens to the bride’s shoes during the wedding, such as a broken heel.  However, Russian brides also believe that they can cultivate good luck by placing a coin under their left heel.   Once a relative or close friend has made the first toast at the wedding ceremony, guests are supposed to throw their champagne glasses to the ground.  If they break upon impact, it is considered good luck.   Traditionally, no engagement ring is offered and the wedding bands are worn upon the RIGHT hand, rather than the left.  However, the offering of an engagement ring is gaining popularity around the world, so these rules are rather flexible.  But whichever hand you decide to wear your wedding rings, be careful not to drop the rings while exchanging them!  If the bride or bridegroom should drop the ring while trying to put it on the other's finger, it is considered to be a very bad omen!

Many of our members ask us about acceptable age differences between themselves and their prospective Russian bride. It is true that for most Russian ladies, dating and marrying an older gentleman is acceptable and sometimes preferable to a man her own age or younger. We feel that with mutual compatibility, open communication and a willingness to cultivate the relationship – qualities which are necessary in ANY relationship, no matter what age you and your partner are – what can work is entirely up to you and the lady you’re interested in.   A major reason for Russian women’s interest in older men is simply the social demands placed upon Russian women.  A Russian woman typically finds herself under much more pressure to find a match, get married and start a family during her early twenties than women in Western countries. Men on the other hand are not subject to such expectations and usually do not start settling down until their early thirties or even later. Based only upon readiness to start a family, a more mature gentleman may already be a better match for a young Russian lady than a suitor her own age.   You must also consider that a young woman may be attracted to an older partner’s maturity, experience and stability. An older man is seen to have already survived his tumultuous youth; he is now ready to use his experience and knowledge to settle down and care for his future bride. This is certainly not true in every case, but this perception can inspire younger women to pursue an older man.   While Russian women do tend to be attracted to older men, this does not guarantee success in such a match.  Although younger women do seem to care less about age differences (perhaps even stating that “age is only a number”) and Russian women are perceived to be more emotionally and intellectually mature at a younger age, they may not yet have the life experience necessary to realize the obstacles that come with pursuing an older gentleman. It is important to discuss your feelings about this topic with your prospective partner so that you will both have reasonable expectations for the relationship.   So, does this mean that you have a better or worse chance if you set your sights on a younger woman? No, not necessarily. Relationships that involve a significant difference in age come with their own challenges and obstacles, just like any other relationship. However, just like any other relationship, they are more likely to flourish when they are based upon interpersonal compatibility, open and honest communication, trust and commitment to each other.    HotRussianBrides.com has over 13,000 beautiful, single Russian and Ukrainian women ranging in age from 18 to 65 and older, so you’ll have no problem finding your ideal Russian bride, no matter what age you would like her to be!
