At Hot Russian Brides, we get to learn about the intricacies of online courtship every day. Through the years, we have picked up many pointers that we like to share with our members to help them make their search for a companion more fruitful and positive. Here’s a big no-no: Needlessly or Negatively Talking about Your Ex. Bringing up your ex-girlfriend or ex-wife when corresponding with a new person can be a big turnoff. Women generally don’t like that there is another woman on your mind or that you are trying to size them up against someone else. Plus, why do you want to spend valuable time talking about someone else when you could be spending it getting to know your new interest? When is it OK to talk about an Ex?It’s usually only OK to talk about your ex if the topic comes up in conversation. Our recommendation is that you keep it brief and neutral. Resist, at all costs, the urge to go off on a diatribe about how bad of a person she was and how much you hate her. No matter whether your ex was a terrible person or not, your lady will see this as a big turn off and a sign that you may either be 1) still in love with her or 2) a misogynist. Or both. Once the topic of your ex exits the conversation, refrain from bringing her back up. Now, if both of you are coming out of a bad relationship, it may be OK to talk about this, but beware as it can easily drive you apart or make you seem like you are not over her. Other things to avoid: Don’t carry an ex’s photo in your wallet or on your cell phone Don’t say, “I used to hate when my ex did this…” as a way to let your new interest know what you like or don’t like Don’t take calls or emails from your ex in your new interest’s presence In closing, we would recommend you avoid the subject of exes unless it can’t be avoided or if you both want to talk about it. A proven way to get over your ex is to meet someone new, like the beautiful Russian women on Hot Russian Brides! Join free today!

In a post “Women’s Lib” world, men have been conditioned into abandoning the old fashioned, traditional dating rules.  Gone are the days when gentlemen were expected to open a door for a lady or pull out her chair; now such chivalrous actions may be interpreted by women in the West as demeaning or insulting.  For men who miss how it used to be, dating a Russian or Ukrainian woman can be a refreshing change.  The dating culture here still embraces the old fashioned approach.  Even a more modern thinking, independent Russian woman will appreciate the extra care and attention you pay her by following traditional courtship rules.    If you’ve grown too accustomed to the modern dating protocol in the West, here are some wooing tips that are sure to make your special lady swoon.   Take the Lead.  While the norm today may be to share in the planning of the evening and going “dutch” when it’s time to pay, this trend has not caught on everywhere.  Take control by planning out the date yourself – and footing the bill.  By making all the reservations and planning the schedule yourself, you not only avoid the “what do you want to do?” exchange; you also relieve her of the stress and responsibility involved in planning your first date, allowing her to relax and just focus on enjoying her time with you.    Make it Special.  Don’t treat your date like any other night out.  If you want to make a great impression on your date, dress to impress.  This doesn’t mean you’ll have to don a tuxedo (unless it’s appropriate for your destination!), but you should certainly ditch the jeans and t-shirt.  Dress well, be sure your clothes are ironed and your shoes aren’t scuffed, run a comb through your hair; you may even consider topping it off with a masculine cologne, but be careful not to go overboard.   Don’t Forget the Flowers.  Flowers play a much more significant role in Russian culture than they do in Western countries, so it is very important to present them to your date.  Keep in mind, no matter the variety you get, that the bouquet should be comprised of an odd number of flowers (even numbers are reserved for funerals and sorrowful events) and you should avoid presenting yellow roses (which can signify disinterest or the end of a relationship).   Sweep Her Off Her Feet.  You know the drill:  Open doors for her, pull out her chair, offer your jacket if it’s chilly or raining.  Don’t forget to use good table manners if you go out to eat and keep her glass full.  Another custom from a bygone era:  offer your arm to her as you walk together or as you step into or out of vehicles.  These may seem like little things, but she’ll appreciate your care and you’ll impress her with your charm.    Keep in Touch.  Don’t forget to get in touch with her the next day!  After your date or trip, call or send an email to tell her you had a wonderful time and that you’re interested in seeing her again.  This little courtesy is often neglected in the modern dating world, so if you follow this tip, you’re sure to stand out.

For some on HotRussianBrides.com, marriage is not the main objective for joining the site. They want to meet someone they have a connection with and grow that relationship as quickly -- or as slowly -- as they both feel comfortable with. When you go out on a date with someone, do you ask them to marry you right away? Well, maybe if you are a whimsical romantic. I am pretty sure that 9.9 times out of 10, if you propose on the first date, you wouldn’t have very many second ones. Since HotRussianBrides.com is not a mail order bride Website (despite our catchy name), none of the ladies on our site are willing to marry someone just because a member requests it. For the ladies, HotRussianBrides.com provides a platform to meet interesting men from all over the World and find something that they do not have in their country. For men, HotRussianBrides.com provides an opportunity to meet beautiful women that are traditional in their values and adventurous in their romantic pursuits, unlike any others in the World.

The “About Me” and “Looking For” sections of our member’s profiles are both the most important and least completed sections. Men usually don’t like to describe themselves and can be indecisive when describing what they are looking for. However, without these chunks of information, your quest to find love or romance on HotRussianBrides.com may be unfruitful. We usually require members to complete their profiles before they can engage in email or chat with our ladies. This is done to allow the ladies to get to know you better before they choose to correspond with you.   Wouldn’t you describe yourself to someone you are on a date with?   Wouldn’t you rather only correspond with ladies that have something in common with you?   Your “About Me” should be at least 50 words and include a general description of what you are about, what you believe in, what you do and what you consider to be your best qualities. This is the first impression of you to our ladies, so make it interesting. It is important that you are honest in this section as you don’t want to later disappoint anyone you are corresponding with. Read this article for more tips on filling out your profile.   In your “Looking For” section you should describe who your ideal match would be. Ladies that don’t fit your description may still contact you, but it will at least give them an idea of who you are hoping to meet. Include age range, likes, dislikes, hobbies, body type, etc… This is your chance to let our ladies know what you find attractive, unattractive and desirable.

The moment when you see “that special someone” for the first time has been the litmus test for attraction and compatibility since the dawn of man. But, what if you couldn’t see the person that you have a connection with until after a few dates? The ABC show “Dating in the Dark” aims to find out if people can become attracted to each other without seeing how they look like and to answer the age-old question: “Is Love Blind?”  “Dating in the Dark” features six strangers (3 men, 3 women) digging through each other’s clothes, getting grilled by FBI profilers, dancing and watching video tours of each other’s homes with the hopes of connecting with someone, while only interacting with them in a darkroom. After several days of dating, the participants select the one member of the opposite sex that they want to see revealed in the light. Dating reality shows are neither new nor newsworthy, but this show does highlight how much more open-minded and adventurous we are becoming when looking for our perfect match. With the growing popularity of online dating Websites, our dating pool has become the World, not just the local pub or night club. Dating sites for all tastes and types exist to cater to our individual needs. HotRussianBrides.com provides self-assured bachelors with access to court some of the most beautiful women in the World, all looking for romance, adventure and love.
