Sincerity and the Women of HotRussianBrides.com

7. July 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

"Are the women on HotRussianBrides.com sincere?” It’s one of the most common questions we hear at HotRussianBrides and a topic that is hotly debated among our critics. However, before we can answer this question it's necessary to address two controversial topics that muddy the issue: the definition of sincerity and the lengths a Russian dating service should go to protect members from so-called insincere ladies.   


The Definition of Sincere

The word “sincere” means different things to different people. Some men believe a woman on a Russian dating site is not sincere unless she is willing to marry any member who shows interest in her. Others think a sincere woman is one who is willing to marry right away. Even more think women have to reach a certain age before they can possibly be sincere about marriage. We disagree. To us, a sincere woman is a woman (of any age) who is open to the idea of communicating with foreign men and will consider marrying the right one. That’s it.


Ensuring the Women Are Sincere

Some men believe Russian dating services like HotRussianBrides should ensure that the ladies who use their service are sincere. While it’s impossible to see into the mind of each and every lady, we do require our ladies to record and submit a validation video in which they state they are single, that they are using the service of their own free and that they will not solicit members for money or gifts. They must also sign a written agreement stating the same. If a lady breaks this agreement we will remove her from the site.

We do not, however, install hidden cameras in introduction agencies, require the ladies to submit to  psychological screenings, force them to take lie detector tests, or employ “secret shoppers” to monitor their every move (as some men have seriously suggested). To do so would be insulting and ridiculous and if we wished to be fair we would have to require our gentlemen members do the same.   


Are the Women on HotRussianBrides Sincere?

So, in summary, the women on HotRussianBrides are sincere in that they truly want to correspond with foreign gentlemen and will consider marrying the right one. They will not, however, marry a guy simply because he expresses interest or pays to chat with them. Additionally, while we do try to weed out scammers with extensive anti-scam policies, we do not require our ladies to submit to a battery of “sincerity tests.” The men and women who use our service are adults and we must treat them as such.
