It wasn't that long ago that people had a negative idea of online dating. Those who found success even lied to their family and friends about where they met their partners because they didn't want anyone to know the truth. While online dating is more popular today, most users find that the top sites care less about helping them find true love and more about helping them find a weekend hook up. As there are so many problems associated with online dating, it's not surprising that a large number of men now look to Russian women websites to find real love. One study actually found that up to 10% of all online dating site users are scammers. Even the most popular sites cannot get rid of those users. Many men find themselves dealing with chat bots. Chat bots are fake accounts created as a way to lure men to paid sites that charge them high fees for talking with women. The saddest thing about those chat bots is that these men think they met real women but actually talk with computer robots or even other men posing as women. Sites that specialize in Russian women and brides go to great lengths to prevent those scams. With a standard dating site, men can spend weeks trying to meet women and even longer sending messages back and forth. With sites that pair men with Russian women, those men have the chance to start talking with women right away. While some may prefer using Internet messages or a chat program, others will want to turn on their web cams and see just how gorgeous those women look in real life. Chatting over a web cam also ensures that the women they meet look as good in real life as they do in their photographs. Some men worry about using Russian women dating sites because they think that these sites are best suited for men of a younger age. While only 3% of all registered users in the past were over the age of 55, men over that age now represent more than 10% of all registered users. As the average age of the men using those sites increases, the average age of the women using those sites decreases. Though some sites feature profiles from women as young as 18 or 21, men can also search for women in their late 20s or older. The biggest difference between the American women and Russian women using these sites is that women in Russia want more than just a good time or another date. They turn to the Internet because they know that they cannot find true love in their own small towns and because they want someone who appreciates their good old-fashioned values. The Russian women found online are often talented in hobbies like cooking and music. Men who want more out of life and want to find their soul mates will find beautiful and wholesome Russian brides looking for men just like them.
