5 Falsehoods About Hot Russian Brides

14. March 2011 by Michelle 0 Comments

People of different cultures commonly have preconceptions about each other. Learning more about Russian and Ukrainian women right at the start of this international dating adventure will help you be more successful in your search. One of the first steps is distinguishing the facts from the fiction.


Here are 5 myths that men mistakenly believe about hot Russian brides


Russian brides are shy, submissive housewives

With so many women online, there are so many different personalities. Some are more shy and introverted, while others are extremely outgoing and talkative. Many ladies have highly set career goals and exciting life plans so don’t expect all Russian brides to be satisfied with the traditional housewife role. Of course there are ladies that would prefer that lifestyle as well. It’s all about variety. 


Russian brides are prostitutes

Since Russian dating still uses the term “mail order bride”, it is easy to assume these women are for sale, and some men may associate that idea with prostitution. With so many beautiful women wanting to meet you, sex certainly comes to mind. Russian brides are not for sale; not their love, not their companionship, and definitely not their bodies. They value themselves highly as do women all around the world. Some may choose a more sexual lifestyle, but most choose to find a mental and emotional connection and let the physical and intimate connections follow naturally.


Russian brides despise Russian boys

Many of the Russian brides searching for love abroad have had relationships with Russian men, and there are many happy Russian couples. Thinking that Russian women hate Russian men is yet another unfortunate myth. Some ladies just choose to broaden the dating pool with new and interesting men from all over the globe. They long to meet their Prince Charming, not matter which continent he happens to reside.


Russian brides want a ticket out of Russia

Life in Russia is not as bad as many reports make it out to be. Russian women love their family and friends and make huge sacrifices when they decide to move away and begin a new life with a man. They have worries about international dating just like men do. Everyone is looking to advance themselves and reap the rewards of a better life. Finding that soul mate to share life with is one way towards that goal.


Russian brides are high maintenance

Since they are so beautiful and always presentable, some men think Russian women are high maintenance, taking many hours to get ready and requiring only the finest in perfumes and cosmetics. While many do put a great deal of pride in their appearance and do take the time to look their best, they’re not overly extreme about it. Again this varies with every girl. Talk to her, get to know her, and see if her personality and quirks will mesh with your own.


Different cultures yield many differences but you will most likely be surprised by how much you and your Russian bride have in common. An open mind is certainly a prerequisite to the international dating experience so don’t let common generalizations about Russian women prevent you from finding your perfect match.
