4 Questions to Think Over Before Submitting an Intimacy Request

18. December 2012 by Dasha 0 Comments

Thinking of submitting an Intimacy Request? Congratulations on finding a special Ukrainian woman! Here are four questions to think over as you prepare for the next stage in Russian dating.     

Are You a Qualified Member?

A Qualified Member is a man with a Silver, Gold, or Platinum membership who has used at least 1,000 credits on our site. Only Qualified Members may submit an Intimacy Request, so you’ll need to meet these specifications before reaching out to a lady.


Are You IMBRA Approved?

Once a man is a Qualified Member, he may then complete the IMBRA process. The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act, or IMBRA, is a United States federal statute that requires background checks for all marriage visa sponsors. All members of Hot Russian Brides, regardless of citizenship, must complete the IMBRA process. Members only have to complete the IMBRA process once. This is true even if they leave the site and come back.

Will the Request Come as a Surprise?

If a Qualified Member is IMBRA approved he is free to submit an Intimacy Request to whoever he wants, including women he doesn’t know well. However, it’s generally best to get to know a potential match so the request doesn’t come as a complete surprise.

What Happens Next?

A woman has up to two weeks to accept or deny an Intimacy Request. If she approves the request, the couple can exchange personal contact information, chat outside the confines of HotRussianBrides.com, and make plans to meet in person. However, some women can’t chat off HRB, or don’t feel comfortable straying from the site, so we strongly suggest that all men talk to their lady about what will come after the Intimacy Request process.


Good luck with your special lady!
