Ignore the Haters: Dating a Russian Woman is Hot No Matter How You Meet

16. March 2010 by Admin 0 Comments

A member recently asked us why there weren’t many testimonials about HotRussianBrides.com couples outside of the ones we post on our Website. As unfortunate as this answer is, many men still feel like there is a stigma associated with marrying a woman from Russia or Ukraine, especially if you met her through a dating Website. They feel ashamed that they will be perceived as a lesser man for resorting to “this way of getting a woman”. With around 25% of all marriages in the US originating from an online dating Website, online dating, international or not, is quickly becoming the best way to meet a quality mate.

Although we are warming up to the idea as a society, international dating is still taboo with some. On a daily basis you can read women blasting men who seek love this way, reducing them to perverts or enslavers. We see it as another option in the Menu of Life; a choice to pursue someone that thinks and acts differently than everyone else they know.

What many people don’t know is that in order to succeed in the realm of Russian Online Dating, a man need be adventurous, patient, open-minded and brave. He must be willing to be rejected by someone half a world away and overcome insecurity and doubt throughout the process. There is a financial and time commitment they make that is unheard of with local dating sites. Plus, there is a cultural and linguistic barrier that makes the adventure even more daunting. International Dating is not for the faint of heart or the weak, but rather for the man that just wants something exciting and different, and is willing to look for it outside of his comfort zone (and ZIP code).

The old “mail order bride” label hangs on Websites like ours, particularly because we have the word “brides” in our URL and because we use the term to drive traffic to the Website. Women are not bought on our Website and they are very much in control of their love life. We just provide the communication tools to make “it” happen, whatever you both decide “it” is (friendship, relationship, marriage, etc…).

Don’t be afraid to take a chance and try something that many men regret not trying sooner. Join free, take your time and educate yourself. Don’t let fear or prejudice ruin that could be the most magical journey of your life. But don’t take our word for it, read all our Featured Couples and Testimonials for yourself.
