4 Online Dating Red Flags Women Look For

27. May 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

Knowing what sort of things Russian women look for in a man and what sort of things they actively avoid can be a great help for gentlemen seeking Russian brides. Here are 4 red flags women, Russian or otherwise, watch out for online. 


Being Too Controlling

Unfortunately, some online suitors believe that chatting with a woman one or more times means they have some sort of claim on the lady. These men may try to control “their” women by telling the ladies when to get online, what pictures to send, what questions to answer, and insisting that they stop chatting with other men. If you’re guilty of these controlling behaviors, stop! Respectful requests are fine, but a quality woman is never going to want to take your relationship to the next level if make unrealistic demands before the two of you even meet.


Trashing Others

Constantly trashing other people, be it your ex, your friends, the other women on HotRussianBrides, etc., will make a lady question your loyalty. Not only that, but she will begin to wonder what you say behind her back and if she can truly trust you. No one wants a partner they can’t trust, so resist the urge to bad-mouth others and you will improve your chances of finding a Russian match



Everyone is entitled to a bad day or two, but women don’t want to date men who constantly feel sorry for themselves. Therefore it’s important that you resist the urge to complain about your job, your health, the economy, the cost of Russian dating, etc. That’s not to say that you should NEVER mention these things, but rather you should avoid negative subjects in the first few emails and chat sessions and keep gloomy topics to a minimum.


A Preoccupation with Sex

Save the sexual discussions for ladies you know well. Don’t request nude photos, don’t send nude photos, don’t detail your sexual fantasies, or tell her about your wild sex life unless she has made it clear that she welcomes these comments and requests. A big turn off for women is men who are preoccupied with sex. Why? Because women want to be valued for things other than their bodies and they know solid relationships can’t be based on sex alone.  

To summarize, women do not want to date men who are too controlling, too negative, too preoccupied with sex, or those who constantly bad-mouth others.  Though many gentlemen would like to believe otherwise, Russian ladies have many options and do not wish to waste their time on men who throw out these red flags.
