The first step to finding your match on HotRussianBrides.com is comepleting your profile. Men can have a tough time with this. Here are some tips to help you find the right match for you. If you find yourself suffering a sudden case of writer’s block, you’re not alone.  Many people, when confronted with the daunting task of describing themselves, discover that they don’t know what to write or even where to begin.  Yet, a personal profile is one of the most important and powerful tools available to anyone looking for love online. 

 

If you’re stuck at “I am an honest guy who likes to have fun,” the following tips may help you write a profile that stands out from the crowd and attracts a beautiful Russian bride.

 

  1. First, be positive.  Avoid using negative statements in your profile.  We’ve all been on dates with people who couldn’t seem to stop complaining about their job, their ex, their car, etc.  Negativity, whether it’s on a date or in your profile, will not make the ladies swoon.  Instead, focus on using positive statements.  So, instead of saying “I’m sick of American women,” “I hate liars and cheaters,” or “Don’t waste my time unless you’re serious”, use phrases such as “I love Russian and Ukrainian women,” “I admire honesty and commitment in a relationship,” or “I’m looking for a serious, meaningful relationship with a woman who’s ready to get married!  If this sounds like you, send me an email!” 
     
  2. Show, don’t tell.  No matter how often your friends say that you’re a great guy, this really doesn’t mean anything to the women viewing your profile.  She’s never met your friends and has no idea what makes you so “great”.  Rather than sharing what others say about you, SHOW her what makes you a great person.  Talk about what you do in your daily life that makes you a man worth meeting and marrying.  For instance, don’t just say that you’re a great father, instead talk about how you spend time with your kids and what you like to do with them.
     
  3. Avoid clichés.  Nearly everyone writes that they’re a great person who likes to have fun and is looking for an honest partner.  Instead of writing something obvious that may be taken for granted and glossed over, write about what makes you different from every other guy looking for a Russian or Ukrainian woman.  Have fun writing it, be clever and creative, and put your best qualities on display.  Remember that you’re not writing a resume; you’re introducing yourself to a woman who may turn out to be your future wife someday!
     
  4. Be honest!  Do not be tempted by the anonymity of online dating; no matter how strong the urge is to exaggerate or stretch the truth, be honest in your profile.  Whether you are thinking about hiding your age, your marital status, or your secret love for Broadway musicals, you’ll be doing yourself no favors when the truth inevitably comes out.
     
  5. Don’t forget to post a good photo!  A photo can say a thousand words, but if you upload a blurry, poor quality image, they may not be the thousand words you were looking for.  Only upload clear, recent photos of yourself.
