You’ve started e-mailing a particular lady and she abruptly stops writing back. Or she says she met someone else. Or you’ve sent out several introductory e-mails and heard nothing back. You feel rejected, and it’s like a stab in the heart with an ice pick.   Rejection is an equal opportunity emotion: it hurts all of us at some time in our lives, and feels exactly the same way. You feel betrayed, taken advantage of, and less of a man. You play the blame game, thinking up choice names you’d love to unleash on the lady, while also thinking, If only I smiled more, had more hair, not told her about my Gumby collection, complimented her eyes instead of her lips.   There are no easy answers to this complex topic. But it you learn to shake it off and learn more about yourself in the process, you’re way ahead of the game. So consider these tips if you feel slighted.   We’re all insecure Just because a lady is beautiful and accomplished, doesn’t mean she feels beautiful and accomplished every second of her life. She is a human being! Do you feel like Mr. Perfect all the time? Remember, too, that many people reject others first so they won’t be rejected. It’s a very common defense mechanism: I’ll dump you before you dump me, and then I’ll be in control and it won’t hurt so much.   It might not be you at all Remember that Hot Russian Brides is a unique and different way to find a lady. Rejection may just be a perceived slight with no base in reality. Did you bombard one hot woman with a dozen rapid-fire instant messages and get a single, short reply? She may have limited English skills and it might take her a long time to reply. Did she take a week to answer an e-mail? Maybe she can’t get to her agency but once a week.   Then again, it might be you Did you berate a lady about the number of credits you spent to chat with her? She knows little about this and is thinking how she spent an hour getting to her agency in the snow. Think of how she feels! Did you boast about your wealth and virility, or get an insecurity attack and tell her you’ve never been on a date in your life? Think about your words before you hit send.    Take stock The important thing is to not let rejection paralyze you. Look back on any previous relationships that didn’t work out. Try to be objective (yes, it’s the hardest part), and you may realize there were some mismatches that never would have worked anyway. Think back on the times you were at fault, and work on putting bad habits in the shredder. Hold up the good things about yourself to the light and shine them to a fine glow.   Bounce back Come on, you’re good at something! Write down a list of your positive attribute and focus ion those, and remember there are many beautiful ladies out there. As dear of mom might have said, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Learn something about yourself and move on. You’ll meet your match!

What are the magic words you can say to make a hot Russian bride fall madly in love with you? Unfortunately, there is no single phrase that does it (or if there is, we’ve never heard of it). There are, however, certain things you can say and do to greatly enhance a woman’s interest in you. Here are five of the things that women absolutely love to hear their men say.  “You Look Great”Simple and sincere compliments are things of which women can’t get enough. Little comments on her looks or her talents every now and then will get you far. It’s a polite way of telling her you find her attractive. And it means a lot if she has gone to a lot of trouble to look good. However, you would be wise not to inundate her with false expressions of praise. She will see right through that. “How Was Your Day?”A question like that that shows genuine interest in her life will get you far. What’s better is if you can show enthusiasm for any news she gives you about her life. If she obtains a major achievement, get excited about it and compliment her. The more interest you demonstrate toward the things she likes, the more she will like you. “How do You Feel About This?”Asking a Russian woman her opinion on just about anything shows that you’re concerned about her feelings. More than likely, she will be eager to express her thoughts on whatever you ask about. This kind of a compassionate gesture will show her that you pay attention to her and will make her more attracted to you. “Thank You”It could be said that women are not thanked enough for the things they do. Certainly, many of the responsibilities that come with being a woman (i.e. motherhood) are often overlooked or taken for granted by society. Because of this, the simple act of saying “thanks” can mean a lot to a woman, whether it is for something kind she does for you, a compliment she gives you, or a simple thanks for taking the time to chat. “You’re the One for Me”Short of saying, “I love you,” this is the best way to express exclusive devotion to your Russian lady. But be careful not to utter something this heavy until the moment is right with the right lady. When you have gotten to know a lady for a sufficient period of time and you feel a deep connection with her, she will love nothing more than to know that you are committed to her. Little turns of phrase like the ones listed above have the potential to greatly enhance a lady’s interest in you. Just be sure to be crafty in your choice of words and always wait for the right time to speak.

Whether traveling abroad for pleasure or business, there are a few things you must keep in mind when embarking on an international trip. If you are planning a trip overseas to visit your Russian bride or just to take in the sights, here are four simple tips to help your journey go a little smoother.   Secure all necessary travel documents before your departure date Each country has different entry and exit requirements. Some only require a valid passport for entry while others, like Russia, require a letter of sponsorship and a Visa. It is crucial that you have all necessary documents before you attempt to enter another country. Travelers without proper documents will be turned away and sent home at their own expense. Passports, Visas, and sponsor letters are not documents you can get in a few days, so be sure to apply well in advance.     Avoid being the victim of a crime Travelers who flaunt large amounts of cash, flashy jewelry, or expensive belongings often attract the attention of thieves. When traveling, avoid carrying large bundles of cash and leave the expensive jewelry at home. In addition, be sure to keep a close eye on your luggage, wallet, or other personal effects. Don’t give anyone a reason to think you’d be an easy and profitable victim.   Don’t rely on one form of money While credit cards may be the tender of choice in your home country, many countries can’t or won’t accept them. Do research before you leave and never rely on one form of payment. It’s generally best to bring a mixture of cash, traveler’s checks, and credit cards. If you will be using your cards abroad, be sure to notify your bank before you leave as they may put a hold on your accounts.   Be knowledgeable about local laws Laws vary from country to country so be sure to familiarize yourself with the local laws before traveling abroad. Some things to consider are what items you can bring into the country and what items you cannot, departure and customs taxes, alcohol policies, etc. Never ever even think about doing illegal drugs or transporting them out of the country!   These tips, along with a little common sense will help your trip abroad go a little easier.

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.
