Mail Order Myth Madness: 3 Stereotypes to Forget

13. January 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

If you want to succeed on HotRussianBrides.com than you must have a realistic idea about to expect. Here are 3 of the most common myths about Russian women and Russian dating and why you should forget them.


Russian Women Are Only After a Green Card

Many people believe that women on Russian dating websites are only after one thing: a green card (or the equivalent). While there are certainly ladies out there who are motivated by immigration rights, the majority of Russian women need a more compelling reason to uproot their lives for an unknown future across the world. Think about it. When a lady moves abroad, she leaves behind her friends and family, her memories and history, her language and culture. A green card alone is simply not worth this difficult move. Would you give up everyone and everything you knew just to reside in another country? The green card myth stems from the belief that Russia and the Ukraine are horrible places to live, but that’s simply not the case these days.


Russian Women Are Submissive

A few men are excited by the prospect of a Russian bride (or any foreign bride, really) because they believe the ladies are submissive and eager to please. While some women may meet this description, it is not the norm and a gentleman should never expect meek or subservient behavior. Successful relationships are built on mutual respect and understanding. Men who do not agree with this principle will not have much luck on our site. On a similar note, gentlemen should also be wary of the happy housewife myth. Sure, some ladies dream of being homemakers, but others may wish to pursue a career outside the home. Talk to a lady about her hopes and dreams instead of making assumptions based upon her nationality.


Russian Women Can Be Purchased

Most gentlemen know that they cannot order a Russian woman from a catalog and have her shipped to his door (though some still believe this old myth). However, more than a few fellows believe there is an unspoken agreement between men and  Russian dating services that states if a gentleman spends enough money on a woman and/or a service than he is entitled to a Russian bride. However, this simply isn’t the case. Men must still court the ladies on international dating sites and they must still make an effort to be charming and polite. The mistaken assumption that men are entitled to a Russian bride, no matter what, is the root of many so-called scam tales.
