Online dating, like traditional dating, has its fair share of do’s and don’ts. While many standards of behavior are the same, the rules of online dating are a little different. Whether you’re new to Hot Russian Brides or just need a little guidance, here are 5 tips to help you avoid common online dating mistakes and find the Russian woman of your dreams.   1. Don’t lie Nothing will repel a lady faster than learning that her online suitor is a liar. Be truthful in your profile information! Don’t lie about your age, your job, your income, or anything else for that matter. On a similar note, don’t post a photo of you in your 30s if you’re actually in your 50s, and don’t even think about posting a photo of someone else! If things progress as you hope, you might meet your lovely Russian lady one day and what could be more humiliating than being exposed as a fake?   2. Don’t be inappropriate Once you’ve found a sexy Russian lady who’s caught your eye, the last thing you want to do is scare her away by being inappropriate. One way to do this is to ask her for nude or sexy photos or to bring up sex in the first few emails. Sex-obsessed men are a big turn off for Russian women, so tread carefully.  It’s fine to tell a woman you think she’s beautiful, but not to comment on her body.   3. Don’t post incomplete or vague profile information Your profile is the first thing a lady will see, so be sure to make it good! Don’t post an incomplete profile, or a profile with minimal information. Men who take the time to write full, developed profiles get better responses than those who write only a few words. Write about your interests, your likes and dislikes, what you’re looking for in a lady, etc. The more information you share, the better your chances of finding your perfect Russian match!   4. Don’t be needy Imagine that you’ve found the hot Russian bride of your dreams on hotrussianbrides.com. She’s seems beautiful, intelligent, and charming so you send her an introductory email. After a day or two, she doesn’t reply so you send her another email, then another and another and another.  When she doesn’t reply after a week or so, you grow disgusted and perhaps send a curt message telling her not to bother contacting you. While some women like a persistent man, others find it annoying or even frightening. Keep in mind that many Russian women are only able to access the Internet a few times each month, so be patient when awaiting a reply. A delayed response doesn’t mean she isn’t interested.   5. Don’t be too aggressive Once you’ve met the Russian lady of your dreams, don’t scare her off by being too aggressive. While she likely appreciates your enthusiasm, prematurely pushing for a physical meeting and/or marriage is sure to make her feel uneasy. Take your time. Get to know her first. There’s no need into rush things. Men who expect face-to-face meetings and marriage too soon are often disappointed.

A survey conducted by The Center for Demography & Ecology of Man indicated that only 535 out of 1,000 Russian women were married. The survey showed that 50% of Russian women were either never married, lost a spouse, or were remaining single by choice. Another study showed that Russian women prefer the men that they marry to be strong and stoic figures, who are intelligent and able to provide for their families. A Russian woman wants a husband, who is not just interested in protecting her, but who also aims to serve as a protector for the entire family. Russian women known as being extremely devoted, usually strongly believe that the man who they choose to marry is her one true love. Although Russian women seem to expect a lot from the men that they choose to date, they also expect a lot from themselves as well. Keeping up with personal hygiene and appearance are important to many Russian women. However, besides this, many Russian women are often times intelligent and educated women. In my perspective, Russian women long for the same thing in a man that American women are seeking to find. If you’re a man, the good news is, you don’t always have to “have the look,” but displaying strength, safeguarding skills and intelligence is liable to get you far with your new potential Russian bride!

According to seminar speaker Steve Oniki, each person falls under one of four personality types. In fact, he claims that you can categorize someone primarily by looking at things such as dress, mannerism, and even handshakes! In this article, I will attempt to expose these secrets.  Hopefully gentleman, these strategic methods will help you more accurately “size up” your new Russian lady! The first personality type, number 1 is extremely competitive to the point where they won’t quit driving even when the road they are traveling turns out to be full of potholes! Make no doubt about it. A 1 loves to win. It doesn’t really matter how that happens. A 1 is satisfied whether they do it playing by the rules, or through finding that annoying exception buried in the sixth sentence on the fifth page of the eighth paragraph. I think you get the point! This desire shows in their dress, as they are known for wearing solid, dominant colors. Dominance is again displayed when a 1 tightly grips your hand during a shake. The second personality type being a 2 is a bit less competitive than their predecessor. If nothing else, it is a good idea to keep a person with this personality type in your black-book. Why? A type 2 personality is known for their overwhelming cheerfulness. If you are bored, because nobody is dancing, a 2 is the person to approach, as they are happy to get the party started themselves. 2’s prefer colorful and flamboyant prints on their clothing, and of course are known as the “social butterflies.” A 2 will shake your hand in a rhythmical up and down motion. While a 2 is “the life of the party,” a 3 is thought to be the most caring and tender of the personality types. 3’s are so considerate; you just have to like them! They are sensitive to your feelings, and are appreciative when you are sensitive to theirs. If you are having a bad day, you are likely to get the most empathy by calling a 3. They are the least competitive of the personality types. 3’s enjoy wearing casual loose clothing, most likely finding more dressy attire as being “too stuffy.”  They do the “fish handshake,” shaking your hand, in a soft non-offensive manner. Lastly, the fourth type of personality is almost as competitive as a 1. A 4 does not like to be wrong. While a 1 doesn’t like to be wrong either, a 1 doesn’t care too much about being right. (Remember, it’s all about finding that favorite fine print exception with a 1. Winning is winning no matter how it’s done.) While a 4 loathes being wrong, they find it unnecessary, improper, and altogether uncouth to attempt winning through loopholes. When you walk into a 4’s house, nothing, and I do mean absolutely nothing is out of place! Want to play a fun trick on a 4? Move the sponge two inches to the right or left, and walk away. Watch them later as they walk into the kitchen to put it back in the exact same location that they originally had it. But don’t upset your 4 partner too much if you want to avoid an audit from the IRS.  Instead, get a 4 on your good side, so that you can pass them your misfiled receipts and scattered accounting books when that dreadful month of April arrives. A 4’s clothes will usually be ironed and worn with all buttons in place. If one word appeals to them, it’s details. The more details, the more organized the better. You can easily tell a four as the person who barely touches your fingertips, while shaking your hand. So gentleman, now you have the time tested tips and strategies on how to better access your new Russian woman, or anyone else for that matter. So, why are you still sitting at the computer? Aren’t you curious to fly to Russia just to shake your new Russian lady’s hand? On second thought, with all of the time and effort put into planning your big adventure, maybe you deserve a hug instead!

So you like her. And you want her to like you. Now how do you make it happen? Breaking the ice to establish a relationship with any lady can be tricky, especially when it starts online. Here are some tips on how to make an impression and bridge the online divide. The first and most important rule of all is this: be yourself. Trying to be something you’re not can mean the death of any potential future dates. If you’re uncomfortable, she will be uncomfortable. Being who you really are sends a message of confidence. And there is nothing that women like more than a confident man. While maintaining the air of a gentleman is sure to charm any lady, most especially a Russian lady, it is especially important to ensure that you convey this effectively via the Internet. Simple things – such as saying “please” and “thank you” – can go a long way and demonstrate a well-mannered character. The next most important thing is to ask her about herself. Be inquisitive. Don’t spend an entire chat session talking about yourself. Ask about her life. What does she do? What’s her family like? What are her hopes and dreams? If she says a lot, it’s a good thing. Along with that, be liberal with your compliments to her. Tell her you think she’s pretty. Comment on her smile or her hair style. Be funny. Lighthearted humor can work wonders in gaining the key to your lady’s heart. But keep it simple. Stay away from crude humor and avoid telling long, complicated jokes. Lastly, don’t try to rush things to a heavily romantic level right away. Remember that slow and steady wins the race. It’s best if you treat her the same way you would a friend at first. After that, a romantic relationship can come naturally and gradually.

A recent article on the Kyiv Post addressed the issue of American women versus Ukrainian women and who men prefer. This is an interesting question. Why in the United States of America, where men have a choice of millions of women, are American men fascinated with Russian and Ukrainian women? What makes them so desirable? There is the obvious; women from the Ukraine and Russia are very beautiful, well okay, HOT! For centuries men have lusted, longed for, fought, and died for the affections of these gems. In the US and Western Europe there are striking women as well.  Yet, the question still remains, why are more Americans looking for hot Russian brides and Russian love matches? The answer is many American men view some American women as no longer feminine.  The feminist movement proved to be an excellent tool for progress by allowing more women to enter the work place, giving women more dignity, respect, and leadership roles in our society. But at the same time, many American men feel the movement took away what made a woman, well a woman, her femininity. American men are nostalgic for that time when it was okay to be a man. Just look at the popularity of the hit television show “Mad Men.” That’s the appeal Russian women have to some American men.  They let a man be a man without the fear that somehow men are being politically incorrect.  More so than most Western women, Russian ladies appreciate it when a man opens the door for her, walks on the street side while strolling with her, offers her his coat when she is cold, stands up when she enters a room or before she sits down. Russian women are very modern in every aspect but still retain their feminine charms. Men who have Russian brides will tell you that their wives are not pushovers, not by a long shot.  They are strong, smart, sexy, beautiful women but they have a strong sense of traditional values, like home and hearth, which some men find appealing. Russian women are able to have a career but at the same time can cherish compliments from men.  It seems that Russian and Ukrainian women have found the perfect balance between the old ways and the new ways. Perhaps, just perhaps, the Old World can teach the New World some old tricks.

When preparing to visit another country, it’s always helpful to familiarize yourself with local customs and etiquette. Not only will you appear polite and knowledgeable, but you are sure to make a fabulous impression on local residents, especially the women. Travel guidebooks and websites are an invaluable source of etiquette information, as are friends or acquaintances from the country you plan to visit. Concierge services (such as the one offered by www.hotrussianbrides.com) are also a great resource.   Planning a trip to Russia? Like every country, Russia has its own unique standards of etiquette. Whether you’re visiting a special Russian lady or just touring the country for fun, here are a few tips to make your stay go smoothly:   If you are invited to a private home for dinner, bring a small, appropriate gift such as wine, fruit, cake, or other tasty treats. Flowers are also acceptable (though be careful about color and quantity). If you are giving flowers, select an odd-numbered batch as even-numbered ones are typically reserved for funerals. Also, avoid giving yellow flowers to Russian women as yellow flowers traditionally symbolize the end of a relationship. Always remove your shoes when entering a private residence. This is done to help keep the host’s residence clean. Speaking of shoes, never show the soles as it is considered disrespectful. To avoid making this mistake, resist the urge to fidget, cross your legs, or rest your feet on nearby objects. Try to accept all food or alcohol offered to you. Your Russian hosts may be offended by any refusals, so come hungry and thirsty! When traveling by car with a Russian woman, exit the vehicle first so you may offer your hand to your female companion. Remember, Russian women love chivalry, so don’t be afraid to open doors, pull out chairs, or offer to carry a woman’s bags. She’ll love it! By following these simple tips, you are sure to make a great impression on Russian women and men alike. This is by no means an exhaustive list of Russian etiquette tips, nor should you worry if you slip up. Most locals will forgive you for making mistakes and will respond graciously to unintentional breaches. Just treat people with common courtesy and you’re sure to do fine. Remember, it’s the thought that counts.
