Understanding Character Limits on HotRussianBrides.com

11. September 2012 by Dasha 0 Comments

If you’re emailing single women on HotRussianBrides.com, you may have had a message cut short because you used too many characters. Here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to character limits and HRB. 

The character limit on Hot Russian Brides is 3,800 characters. We define characters as letters, numbers, and punctuation marks as well as spaces. Line breaks, made by pressing Enter on the keyboard, count as two characters. Subject lines also count towards the character limit. (EDIT: As of 9/26/12, spaces, line breaks, and subject lines no longer count towards a man's character limit)

It’s important to keep in mind that counting characters in Word will not get you the same results as counting characters on Hot Russian Brides. This is because Word calculates characters differently. While Word might give you a general idea about the number of characters you’ve used, it’s not something you should rely on to stay within your limit.

Do you have trouble staying within the allotted number of characters? Read over your message and delete any words or sentences that are redundant or unnecessary. Removing excessive punctuation and emoticons may also help.

While some men might object to shortening their messages, character limits are actually useful in that they encourage clarity. Clear, succinct emails are easier for Russian women to understand and can help couples avoid misunderstandings and breakdowns in communication.
 
Good luck and happy writing.
