It’s Important to Have Realistic Expectations on HotRussianBrides.com

13. January 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

Despite being around for several years, the Russian dating industry is a mystery to most people. This poor understanding has lead to a number of myths, misperceptions, and unrealistic expectations among Western men.


Below are three common, yet unrealistic, expectations men bring to HotRussianBrides.com and what gentlemen can truly expect as members of our site.


Men Can Buy Russian Brides

Some gentlemen believe that paying membership fees to a Russian dating service means they are guaranteed to find a Russian wife. Some even go so far as to claim a Russian dating site is a scam if they pay to chat with Russian ladies but are unable to find a wife.

A man is not entitled to a Russian or Ukrainian bride because he is a member of HotRussianBrides.com. The service fees we charge goes toward facilitating communication between Russian women and Western men who would have otherwise never met. This money is in no way a “down payment” on securing a bride. As we’ve mentioned many times before, there are no guarantees when it comes to finding love (even if chat fees and membership fees are involved). Gentlemen should always remember this basic fact. 


Russian Women Are Poor and Desperate and Will Marry Anyone

Many people mistakenly believe that Russian and Ukrainian women, desperate to escape the poverty of their home countries, will marry any foreigner who asks. While it’s true that citizens of Russia and the Ukraine are generally less well off than their Western counterparts, life has greatly improved since the fall of the Soviet Union. The vast majority of Russian women are not poor and desperate enough to uproot their entire lives to marry a stranger.

Members of HotRussianBrides.com must still court Russian ladies and gentlemen must still spend a significant amount of time getting to know potential matches. Men who expect to find a Russian bride with little to no effort will likely be very disappointed.


The Women Should Oblige Paying Members

Contrary to what some members may think, the ladies on HotRussianBrides.com are not obligated to behave a certain way. The ladies are free to chat and flirt with whom they wish and they are free to reject gentlemen who do not interest them. We cannot tell ladies how to conduct their search for love, nor do we want to do so.

Unfortunately, a few gentlemen believe (consciously or unconsciously) that the women on HotRussianBrides.com should cater to members’ wants as Western men pay to use our service and Russian women do not.  This is not a realistic expectation. Please do not expect our ladies to immediately respond to all of your emails, make themselves available for chat whenever you wish, accept all Intimacy requests, agree to visits, etc. solely because it is what you want.

Despite what some may believe, HotRussianBrides.com does not guarantee that all paying members will find brides, Russian women aren’t desperate enough to marry any many who asks, and the ladies are free to do as they wish. Gentlemen who come to HotRussianBrides.com with realistic expectations will avoid hours of grief and frustration and are much more likely to be successful onour site.
