Are Russian Women Just Looking for a Way Out?

13. June 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

One of the biggest myths about Russian dating is that the ladies are just looking for a way out. Many men erroneously believe that Russian and Ukrainian women are miserable in their poverty-stricken home countries and want nothing more than a Western man to whisk them away. This is far from accurate.


While there are poor people in Russia and the Ukraine (just like anywhere else), life has come a long way since the fall of the Soviet Union and the nations are not as bleak or poor as they once were. The ladies, for the most part, lead happy, active lives surrounded by family and friends are only seeking a foreign partner because they haven’t had luck at home. It will take much more than the promise of additional money to convince a Russian woman to leave everything, and everyone, she’s ever known behind. Only love will do that.


Anyone who believes the ladies on HotRussianBrides are miserable and that life Russia and Ukraine is bleak should take a look at the videos on HRBtv or check out the Best Places in Ukraine category of this blog. Do the ladies, or places, look miserable to you?

Is Russian dating just a way for women to get out of Eastern Europe. No. While some ladies may have ulterior motives, the vast majority of Russian women are seeking love, not a means of escape.
