What’s an Intimacy Request?

28. April 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

Before exchanging personal contact information with a lady or arranging to meet in person, a gentleman must first complete the Intimacy Request process. Here’s some basic information about this integral part of the HotRussianBrides experience. 

An Intimacy Request allows a gentleman and a lady to chat outside of HotRussianBrides.com or to continue chat on HRB but without filters. The two may also exchange personal contact information, if they wish, and plan to meet in person. Many members are excited and eager to reach this stage of Russian dating.

Before a gentleman can submit an Intimacy Request, he must first be a Qualified Member of HotRussianBrides and complete the IMBRA process. Qualified members are gentlemen with a premium membership (Silver, Gold, or Platinum) who have used at least 1,000 credits on the site. The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) is a United States statute that requires background checks before speech or other forms of communication are permitted between American citizens and foreign nationals. All members of HotRussianBrides must complete the IMBRA process, even if they are not American citizens.

Once a Qualified Member is IMBRA approved he may then submit an Intimacy Request to his lady of choice. View the video tutorials below to learn how complete the IMBRA process and how to submit an Intimacy Request.


Though gentlemen are free to submit an Intimacy Request whenever they wish (provided they are Qualified Members who are IMBRA approved), it’s generally best that members establish a special connection with a lady before submitting a request. Good luck and have fun!
