Beware of Generalizations About Russian Women, Russian Scammers

2. August 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

While generalizations can be useful at times, they can also be extremely dangerous as they encourage men to form unrealistic expectations and unnecessarily restrict their search for a Russian bride. Here are a few common generalizations about Russian women and Russian scammers and how they can adversely affect your experience on HotRussianBrides.com


Generalizations About Russian Women

Some men come to Russian dating because they are disillusioned with and/or disappointed by women in their own country. These gentlemen are usually looking for something specific (traditional family values, a certain look, etc.), have been unable to find them at home, and decide they must look elsewhere. While there’s nothing wrong with being attracted to certain qualities or seeking love abroad, it’s dangerous to assume all, or even most, Russian women will have a specific quality or that they will be completely different from women at home. Over generalization can cause men to build up a fantasy, that no woman, Russian or otherwise, could possibly live up to.     


Generalizations About Russian Scammers

Not all generalizations about Russian women are flattering, however. The great amount of scam horror stories floating around the Web has caused some men to form unfair generalizations about specific types of Russian and Ukrainian ladies. For example, some men believe that young, beautiful women are almost certainly scammers, or that women who use agencies are only after money and gifts. Other gentlemen believe that Kiev is overflowing with dishonest ladies, or even that the entire country of Ukraine is full of scammers. If a gentleman modifies his search to exclude beautiful women, young women, agency women, or ladies from Ukraine, he eliminates thousands of ladies without giving them a fair chance, one of whom may be his perfect match.   

In short, judge a lady as an individual. Don’t pre-judge her based on common generalizations about Russian women and Russian scammers. Doing so will save you a lot of heartbreak and disappointment and keep you from generalizing away the woman of your dreams.
