Read enough women’s magazines (no problem, I’ll do it for you) and you’ll see that women are never satisfied with their looks. We’re forever comparing ourselves not only to the women around us, but to some airbrushed ideal that few can achieve -- at least before the salon doors open. While Russian women seem to ooze a certain confidence in their femininity and style, every woman needs compliments. It’s up there with air and water.   Women are never totally satisfied with their appearance I knew a TV news anchor, one of the most gorgeous women I’ve ever met, who wed a very high-profile plastic surgeon. I ran into her several years later and was taken aback:  she was so nipped and tucked, liposuctioned and Botoxed that I barely recognized her. When I commented on how cool it must be to have free access to every weapon in the beauty arsenal, she shrugged. “Yeah, but he can’t do anything about my fat ankles.”  Women actually bond over these things!   The things she won’t tell you Even stars relish dishing personal beauty secrets to that border on TMI: Sandra Bullock uses hemmorhoid cream for under-eye bags. Jennifer Lopez dots toothpaste to zap zits. Heidi Klum wears Cherry Jell-O on her lips.  It’s the ultimate bonding ritual for a woman to share which of her features vex her most. Her friends then do their best to soothe, then one-up her with their own flaws.  But she won’t always tell you. Learn from this. Tell her over and over you think she’s beautiful they way she is. Repeat often!   Women channel their mothers Inside every woman’s head is a tape that loops such admonishments as, “Stand up straight! Are you going out looking like that? Put on just a little lipstick, will you? Stomach in!” There’s no mistaking that voice! Mom undoubtedly had her daughter’s best interests at heart, and some of her ideas actually made sense, but too much negativity can crack the mirror.   Where you come in Of course, no one is perfect, but we learn to find flaws charming and unique. Especially when we’re in love. But certainly you noticed her best features right away, and then you got to know her better and found some more. Whatever you do, don’t keep this information to yourself! Too many men think it sounds insincere to say “Your eyes are such a gorgeous green” for the 10,000th time. Take a page from her mom’s playbook and don’t let up – ever!   Find your own lovely ladies to compliment in the galleries of Hot Russian Brides!

Female veterans of online dating know the horror stories: The man in the profile picture looks more like his dad in person. Username Testarosa drives a beat-up Saturn. And all those shirtless men – both the six-pack abs and six-pack guts – are clicked right over.   So how do you stand out in the crowd while staying true to yourself?   Careful there, Studmuffin07 You may indeed be the world’s biggest stud, but many women will skip over a username hints (or shouts) about prowess in the bedroom. Russian women especially value a man who appears trustworthy, stable and emotionally available.   Alas, Poorme00 Other men try to express self-deprecation or wackiness in their user name. Bear in mind that people whose first language isn’t English simply may not get it. If you call yourself Psychoboy or Biggestloser, and she writes back, “I can tell by your name that you’re a good man for me!”, it’s likely she doesn’t have a clue what the words mean.   Get the picture! So no one’s taken a good picture of you since your high school yearbook? Stressed that your hairline is retreating like the tide? Get over it: Put on a clean shirt, comb the hair you have, clean up your face and smile for the camera. A lady wants to know what you really look like. That means now. To do anything less is deceitful, disrespectful and you’ll both end up disappointed.   Fortunately, Russian women are known for valuing men for who they are inside. Isn’t that refreshing? Go upload a new picture, write a sincere username, and come browse our gallery of gorgeous women.

Some skeptical members worry that the emails from these beautiful Russian and Ukrainian women contain fake letters. Since the translators assist the ladies in composing their letters, sometimes they have to rewrite them in order for you to understand their message and meaning. This may alter the personal feel of the letter but it is still your Russian ladies’ ideas and intentions that she is sharing with you.   Too Much Passion? On the other hand, some men think the letters are too personal, oozing so much passion in every sentence that the letters must be phony. All the correspondence you share with these women is real. There is a beautiful single lady exploring her creativity and exposing her emotions behind every written letter.   Translation Takes Time   The language difference is an obvious issue that factors into letter writing. This is an aspect of the HotRussianBrides dating adventure that you must understand and accept right at the start. Russian and Ukrainian women love to talk, laugh, and share just as much as the women in your own country, it just may take a little more time for them to understand your messages and respond.   Find Out Her Fluency First When selecting a Russian bride to communicate with, make sure to look at the English Skill section of her profile. This will help you understand exactly how much translation assistance she needs. You will find that many of the Russian beauties are fluent in English and may even know several other languages as well! Although there are some with poor or elementary English skills, they still have lots of interesting and charming thoughts and ideas to share with you so don’t let their fluency discourage you.   Communicating with someone of a different culture and language is a fun learning experience. Don’t let the language difference feel like a barrier. Break down those walls and begin learning about the dreams and desires of hot Russian brides!

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 are beautiful and want you to know it.   What’s behind a sexy user name?

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.

Women are naturally more talkative than men. In fact, women talk three times as much as men. Sometimes you may wonder if they ever shut up! Russian and Ukrainian women share the same gift of gab. They love to share their background, dreams, ideas, and passions in life. These are reasons why many of the single ladies can be seen chatting on HotRussianBrides.com for many hours at a time.   While they have been using email messaging for quite some time, the actual real time chatting features are fairly new and exciting for these Russian women. Surprisingly, when the live video streaming was first introduced, many ladies were very shy and uncomfortable being on camera and chatting this way. After a few brave ladies gave it a try and found how fun and exciting it was, soon all the girls were eager to join. Now many of the women have their very own Introduction Videos, giving you an inside look at who they really are.   Since the video chats have became so enjoyable and popular, several Russian ladies prefer chat only and rarely communicate through emails. Some gentlemen members become concerned when they see a Russian bride online chatting for long periods of time. Women enjoy talking so much, when they plan to chat for a few hours, they may end up chatting all night long. Actually, they become very passionate about finding their perfect match and don’t want to stop chatting until they accomplish that goal. (Gentlemen members have admitted it can be addicting as well!)   Men have misunderstood this passion of Russian brides and their love of chatting. Some think the ladies are being paid by HotRussianBrides.com and the longer they chat, the larger their paycheck. These rumors are false and actually make no sense. If the ladies were paid to chat like this was their job, then they would never find a match and keep using the site forever, which is not the case.   Russian and Ukrainian women are successfully finding matches with gentlemen members every day. Read the testimonials shared by the happy couples themselves! And get ready to gab, chatter, and babble your way to the Russian bride of your dreams.

Men may shy away from intercultural relationships for a variety of reasons. Some believe they will have nothing in common with someone so different from themselves. Others question why they should pursue a woman from another nation when there are plenty of women in their own country. Still others believe that cultural and language barriers will sabotage a potential relationship. However, despite all of these valid concerns there plenty of advantages to dating outside ones culture. So just what are the benefits of an intercultural relationship? Read on to find out.   The opportunity to expand your horizon Intercultural couples have an exciting opportunity that traditional couples do not: the never ending opportunity to learn about another county and culture! In fact, some might argue a foreign mate is the best way to learn about another land, other than moving there yourself. Intercultural couples learn about the food, the language, and culture of their partner’s country. They are able to compare and contrast different ideas and introduce new perspectives. An intercultural relationship can be a truly enlightening experience if both parties are willing to keep an open mind.        Travel If an individual is seriously involved with someone from another country than chances are good that he or she will travel to their partner’s homeland at one point. International travel is a rewarding and broadening experience and something that every person should experience at least once. It is especially rewarding when there is someone special to share the journey. While no one should initiate an intercultural relationship solely for the travel opportunities, they are certainly a nice perk!   Variety As the old saying goes, variety is the spice of life and an intercultural relationship is sure to keep things interesting. Many people tend to date the same type of person over and over again, and while there is nothing wrong with that, an international partner can help one break out of a rut and make dating seem exciting and new.   Are you ready to try intercultural dating? Visit HotRussianBrides.com to see what this international dating thing is all about.

You tell your buddies that you’re thinking about joining HotRussianBrides.com and you probably hear the same old rumors that have been circulating for years about the Russian bride industry. “They just want to marry you for a passport!” they say, or “She just wants you to send her money and gifts!” they exclaim.   Maybe you’ve heard, “Those Russian girls get paid to chat with you online, it’s just their job,” or some guys say, “It’s not really Svetlana you’re chatting with but some Russian dude that works at the agency office!”   These rumors about HotRussianBrides.com are just that – rumors, heresy, and gossip! Men usually read these rumors that are posted on blogs and forums, believing they are true tales from real members. Most often they are actually posted by owners of other online dating sites trying to discredit HotRussianBrides.com because it is the most legitimate and ethical website in the industry.   The Russian ladies on HotRussianBrides.com participate in this service to meet new and interesting gentlemen. They aren’t looking for a ticket out of their country or going to beg you for money and presents. Many of the women have enjoyable professions, and chatting on this site is not one of them. They are not receiving payment or commissions from the company for the time they spend on HotRussianBrides.com.   Other online dating sites may encourage this type of behavior, which unfortunately makes the whole industry look bad. Rest assured that no other international matchmaking service cares as much as about its members than HotRussianBrides.com does! Forget the rumors and see for yourself what an incredible experience this could be. You never know until you try!

Hot older women are big news right now – think Madonna, Demi Moore, Mariska Hartigay and Courtney Cox. And why shouldn’t they be? Forty is the new 30; 50 is the new 40, and a woman’s sexuality rises with age. Russian and Ukrainian women take pride in their appearance. And HotRussianBrides take prides in our gallery of beautiful mature women, whom we refer to as Queens (Not Princesses).   While taste in partners is a highly personal matter, many men gravitate toward mature women for the following reasons:   Beauty is ageless Women in North America are learning to take better care of their looks and health. But Russian and Ukrainian women have put a premium on looking gorgeous for generations. Looking their best is a priority for women in this region; it doesn’t stop at 25.   Clear expectations The older we get, the more clearly we see what we want out of life. Our expectations about our partners are rooted in experience. A mature woman knows that the prince on a white horse is just a man with a fancy title atop a large hoofed animal – but she loves him for who he is anyway!   Worldly Russian and Ukrainian women place a great premium on art and culture. After all, their nations have a rich history and it’s all around them. Many speak English well. In general, they are accomplished and are fascinating conversationalists.   Stability Older women in general are more secure in their jobs and stations in life, and many can take the time to pursue passions for travel, art exhibits and concerts. They feel more secure about who they are. They are no longer finding themselves; they want to explore what they found long ago!   Kids Some of our sexy Russian women have children, as do mature women all over the globe. A family-oriented man will be delighted to find that mature Russian women are extremely devoted to home life. Their kids will melt your heart as much as she does. Of course, some ladies don’t choose to have children and won’t change their mind – a perfect match for a man of like mind.   Is there a downside? Through experience, we have learned that many mature women lead busy lives, with jobs kids and family obligations. In general, you may not see them chatting or emailing as often as a typical younger woman. But be persistent – our Queens are in very much in demand!   At HotRussianBrides, many of our most successful pairings have occurred between more mature couples. We urge you to give our gallery of beautiful, elegant and definitely sexy Queens a look!
