3 Russian Dating Myths to Forget

8. August 2012 by Dasha 0 Comments

Though things are slowly getting better, the general pubic still doesn't like Russian dating sites like HRB. Why? Most people have heard one too many exaggerated horror tales and don't understand how Russian dating truly works. With that in mind, here are 3 common reasons people distrust sites like HRB and why these reasons just aren't accurate.


Myth: Russian Dating Sites Sell Women

You don’t have to be a bra-burning feminist to be creeped out by sites that sell women for marriage. However, HRB doesn't sell women at all. We're just another niche form of online dating. After all, there’s a niche dating site for almost every interest out there be it animals, writing, Star Wars, etc. So why not international dating? Global dating sites simply focus on introducing Western men to women from other regions. The women aren’t forced into marriage and men can’t buy them for a flat fee.


Myth: Russian Dating is for Creeps

Many people are wary of Russian dating sites because they think the men who use these services are violent or creepy. However, we all know that's not true. While talk shows and documentaries tend to feature weird, socially-awkward men and timid, poverty-stricken women, they do so because such characters are intriguing and scandalous, not because they accurately represent the international dating industry.


Myth: Russian Dating Sites Are Scams

Other people dislike Russian dating sites because they’re certain these services are all scams. Some insist the sites pay women to chat or send emails, while others believe the services post fake profiles to lure in unsuspecting men. However, this isn’t true. There are thousands of international dating sites out there, and some are surely scandalous. However, HRB works hard to rid our service of scammers and ensure the site is legit.


While bad apple sites certainly exist, Hot Russian Brides is nothing more than a niche sites offering men an alternative way to find love. The sites don’t sell women, they don’t cater to desperate losers, and they’re not scams.
