Is Your Profile Russian Woman Friendly?

20. September 2012 by Dasha 0 Comments

When it comes to international dating, it's important for members to create a profile that’s appealing and easy to follow. Here are four things you can do to make your profile friendly for non-native English speakers. 

Use Short, Simple Sentences

While you’re not writing for a child, non-native speakers can better follow concise sentences with basic words and ideas. Long, complicated sentences and vocabulary you’d find on a college entrance exam aren’t the best bet for an international dating profile.

Avoid Abbreviations and Text Speak

Sure, many Russian women are familiar with abbreviations like LOL and OMG, but not every woman is aware of the meanings, and abbreviations can easily confuse non-native speakers. Therefore, it’s important to steer clear of text speak and abbreviations like ‘How R U,” “h8,” “ROTFL,” “b4,” and more.


Don't Post a Wall of Text

No one likes a giant wall of text, not even native speakers, so don’t be afraid to use the Enter key. Not only are large blocks of unbroken text intimidating to non-native speakers, but they’re often difficult to follow and exhausting to read. Paragraphs are your friend.

Don't Forget Pictures

They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words, so choose photos that accurately convey who you are and what you like to do. Chances are good the ladies will look at your photos before your profile text, so post something to pique their interest.


Believe it or not, Russian women do care about the content of a man's dating profile. Follow the four simple tips above to make your profile appealing and intriguing to the ladies of HRB.
