HRB's Video Features Takes the Fear Out of Russian Dating

15. March 2013 by Dasha 0 Comments

One of the most common fears about Russian dating is that the women pictured in online profiles aren’t the same women answering emails and chatting with men. Stories of Russian scammers abound, and it’s only natural for men to worry about being duped. Thankfully, HRB takes the fear out of Russian dating through a variety of video-based features.


Video Chat

With live video streaming, also known as video chat, men can see, for themselves, that the woman on camera is the same woman pictured online. Men can also continue conversations they started via email, alleviating fears that someone else is monitoring a woman’s correspondence. 



In October, we introduced VoyerCam, an exciting new feature which allows men to view multiple women streaming live video on HRB. Anyone who sees the numerous streams will have a tough time believing the women on our site are fakes. 


Introduction Videos

Introduction videos are another way members of HRB can verify that the women pictured on our site are the same women searching for a match. In introduction videos, also known as profile videos, women chat about what they’re looking for in a partner, demonstrate a special hobby or talent, or pose prettily for the camera. 


Video Validation

For Ukrainian women, creating a profile on HRB is much more than pulling up the site and entering some basic information. The ladies must first provide a government-issued photo ID as proof of their identity and then record a validation video in which they attest that they are using the service of their own free will and will not solicit members for money or gifts. The women must also sign an agreement outlining the same stipulations. This extensive process helps weed out scammers and ensure the women of HRB are joining the site for the right reasons. 


Not all Russian dating sites are created equal. Though some services might struggle with fake users or scammers out to make a quick buck, HRB’s video features helps provide a safe and secure dating environment. Sign up today!
