Three Common Mistakes Men Make with Russian Women Online

8. January 2010 by Daniel 0 Comments

If you are like most gentlemen, you search for a Russian bride is likely to have its share of pitfalls. But what hinders some, can serve as a learning experience for others.


Here are three of the common mistakes gentlemen make in their search for a Russian bride and how you can avoid them.


Not Reading Her Profile

While many of the Russian women on HotRussianBrides.com are essentially seeking the same thing – marriage and family – and they state so in their profile, each lady has a unique personality that cannot be ignored. That is why it is important that you read each lady’s profile and familiarize yourself with the details she gives about herself before trying to start a conversation with her. The same goes for messages. If she is the first to send you a message, carefully read over what she writes before issuing a reply. It is likely that she will be able to tell if you write to her without knowing anything about her. So make the effort to learn some basic info.


Posting Bad Photos or No Photos

If the best photo you have of yourself is from 20 years ago, it’s safe to say that it’s time to take a new one. Uploading decent-looking recent photos is key to receiving a positive response from the ladies on our site. A good rule of thumb is that if your photos are older than two years, you should upload some new ones. You should also look presentable – no beards or frowns or old shabby T-shirts. Your photos don’t have to be of professional quality; having a friend take one for you can be sufficient enough. Keep in mind that even a mediocre photo is better than no photo at all. Even if you are unhappy with the way a particular photo looks, with more than 14,000 ladies on HotRussianBrides.com, there is bound to be more than a few who will think differently and want to talk to you.  


Asking Her to Marry You

With a name like Hot Russian Brides, it is clear that the eventual goal of our services is to match people for marriages. Contrary to what our name might suggest to some, we are not a mail order brides service. We are an online dating Web site that caters specifically to gentlemen who are interested in dating women from Russia and the former Soviet Union.


As such, there is a long-term courtship process that must take place before a marriage can occur. This is true of marriages that result from our site just as it is of marriages that take place as a result of traditional dating methods. Asking a Russian lady to marry you right off the bat is almost certain to elicit a negative response. If you like a lady, you should get to know her, find out what your shared interests are, talk frequently, send her a gift, and if the relationship gets to a certain level, you should even go visit her. Only at that point might it be OK to propose marriage.

These are just a few of the bigger pitfalls you can easily avoid in your search for your Russian bride. In order to ensure that your search is as smooth and efficient as possible, it is essential that you take advantage of some of the features available through our premium memberships.
