How Long Do You Think it Takes to Get to Know Someone?

In a recent matchup survey, we asked members of HotRussianBrides.com, both male and female, how long they think it takes to get to know another person. Here’s how the ladies responded.



As you can see, the majority of women, 29%, believe it takes a few months to get to know someone. 19% believes it takes a few weeks, while 15% believes it takes longer than a few months.

So what does this mean for the male members of HotRussianBrides? That it’s important to invest time in getting to know a lady rather than rushing the relationship along. Despite the persistent myths that claim Russian women are desperate to escape their home countries and will essentially marry any Western man who asks, the ladies are not willing to leave everything they’ve ever known in order to marry a stranger. Gentlemen must still spend time getting to know a woman, courting her, and determining if there is a future to the relationship.

Of course, as the survey indicates, some women think it’s possible to get to know someone within a few days, or even immediately, while others think one person can’t truly know another. If you’re wondering where your lady stands, ask her! Communication is the key to learning a lady’s expectations.


For comparison, here's how gentlemen responded when asked how long it takes to get to know another individual.
