Help! My Inbox is Overflowing

17. April 2012 by Dasha 0 Comments

Many men, particularly men who have just joined Hot Russian Brides, are astounded by the amount of mail they receive. It doesn’t take long for the emails to pile up, and some men aren’t sure how to handle the volume of letters they receive from Russian women. Here are a few quick tips for handling an overflowing inbox, as well as why the ladies send so many letters in the first place.

Tips for Handling Email

The Black Book is a great way for gentlemen to organize their mail and sort by Favorites, Admirers, Matches, and Intimate Contacts. Members can also use the Black Book to view email history, write and review notes, add an important date to a calendar, and keep track of gifts. Click here for a Black Book Video Tutorial.

Additionally, members can also block a lady’s mail. To block a lady, simply open her email and click the “Block” link. The woman will then be relegated to your Block List and you’ll no longer receive emails from her. You can always unblock the lady if you change your mind.

Finally, don’t try to respond to every email you receive. Some men feel obligated to respond to every message, and though it’s a nice thought attempting to do so will only be a waste of time and money. The ladies do not expect a response to every email they send and they will not be heartbroken if a man doesn’t write back. It’s perfectly acceptable, and often necessary, to delete unsolicited emails.

Why Do the Ladies Send So Much Mail?

So why do men receive so much mail on HRB? Well, first it’s important to note that there are currently 10,000 women on HotRussianBrides.com. If just 1% of the ladies send a gentleman mail, he will receive 100 letters. The women on Russian dating sites are also more proactive than the women on domestic dating sites, primarily because more women than men use international dating services. Finally, many ladies on HRB reach out to as many gentlemen as possible because their time is limited. Remember, many women do not own home computers and must travel to agencies to get online. The ladies simply don’t have time to pore over each gentleman's profile and so they choose to send out multiple introduction emails instead.


Don't let an abundance of email scare you away from Hot Russian Brides. Knowing the reason behind the deluge of mail, as well as effective ways to handle it, can greatly improve your Russian dating experience.
