Common Myths about Russian Ladies

19. July 2010 by Gregg 0 Comments

There are a lot of truths, mistruths and myths floating around about Russian women and Ukrainian girls. While there are a lot of great things about dating a lady from the Former Soviet Union, some gentlemen may get confused between what is true and what is not.

Russian Ladies are docile and subservient

While Russian ladies are great partners in a relationship, this does not mean that they are doormats. Russian women on our site are searching for their other halves and expect to be treated as being equal in a relationship. 

Russia and Ukraine are third-world countries you are rescuing them from

In Ukraine, just like in any Western Country, there are rich areas and poor areas, big cities and small towns. Ukrainian ladies on our site come from all walks of life and while many of them are not immensely wealthy, they lead very comfortable lives where they are. Ladies are on our site to search for their other half, not to try for a status upgrade, and you should never treat a lady as such. 

All Russian and Ukrainian women are Atheists

One of the lingering myths that came from the early days of the Soviet Union is that all Russians are Atheists.  The early days of the Soviet Union did have tight restrictions on Religion, but as years went on, these loosened and disappeared. With the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 90’s and the passing of Historical Heritage laws acknowledging the importance of Religion in Russian history, Religion is still a very powerful element in Russian society. 

All Ukrainian Ladies are Gold diggers who just want citizenship

It’s quite doubtful that a Russian or Ukrainian lady would go through the Marriage process to immigrate to the US unless she was totally serious. The requirements for the K-1 Visa process alone would dissuade most people. The process to obtain one of these Visas can take 3-9 months. After this, a lady can come to the country but she must marry within 90 days of entry into the US. Obtaining work permits takes even longer and becoming a full-fledged citizen will take at least 3-5 years. That is a REALLY long time to be with someone you are not interested in. If you and a lady “hit it off”, it’s extremely unlikely that she would go through all of this unless she was seriously interested in you. 

Ukrainian ladies are paid to chat

At HotRussianBrides.com, we do not offer any compensation to the ladies for using our website. We do not feel that this is a fair business practice, nor do we have the need to give them any incentives. That being said, we do provide all of the services to the ladies are free. Please bear in mind, we are a dating website, not a large corporation; it simply would not be possible for us to employ close to 14,000 women.

If you have any suspicions about a lady being involved in something dishonest, please contact us at Customer Support with her ID and any proof that you may have and we will be more than happy to look into your question.
