Answers to Common Misperceptions about Online Dating

29. October 2009 by James 0 Comments

With the advancement of the Internet, geography is no longer a hindrance to finding love. Anyone with an Internet connection can log on and virtually date single Russian and Ukrainian women. HotRussianBrides.com is not a mail order bride agency or an escort service, but a matchmaking conduit.  We provide the tools, you provide the content.


The Women are too Eager!

Many first time visitors to HotRussianBrides.com are struck by the beauty of the ladies. Some men tell us, “...Oh they are all models. They are too beautiful to be real. You pay them.” Or “….they (the ladies) are all so eager for a relationship I just don't see how it could be real.”  Just as Western men view Russian and Ukrainian women as exotic, likewise Western men have an allure to the ladies. Many Russian ladies look upon Western men as family oriented, worldly, motivated, more caring, thoughtful and wiser than men in their own country.

What Western men view as suspicious is a normal reaction that has gotten lost in translation. Know this, the ladies are very enthusiastic about meeting men and sometimes it comes across as aggressive. In Russia, it is proper etiquette to say hello and welcome a newcomer, or to respond to an introduction, especially if the lady responding finds a gentleman attractive.


You Guys are a Scam!

There are outright lies perpetrated by unscrupulous competitors and unhappy bloggers, such as “you pay the ladies on your site.” With more than 13,000 active women on our site, we could not afford to pay them, nor would we want to.  No company either in person or online can ever guarantee that you will find true love. So if someone has an unfilled expectation it’s easy to discredit a service. Unlike some competitors or bloggers, we offer numerous ways to contact us if you have questions or concerns, via online customer service, video hostesses, phone support, or emails. Ask yourself this, if we were scammers would we publish our phone number or address? Do the bashers offer a way to contact them directly to verify their claims?  With more than 15,000 satisfied customers and more than 7 years in business, our reputation speaks for itself.


They are all Models!

After the Iron Curtain fell many Western men got their first look at how truly beautiful Russian and Ukrainian women were. The old Cold War stereotypes were wiped away overnight. Sure some of the women on the site are professional fashion models but the vast majority of them are accountants, lawyers, business women, computer programmers, office workers. In other words, they are regular people just like you.

All the ladies are validated via video, meaning that we have a video that guarantees that they are living, breathing Russian and Ukrainian single women. Additionally, we require additional documentation to be gathered by the agency handling the sign up. 
We understand the years of internet online dating scams have caused many men to be guarded while dating online. At HotRussianBrides.com, if any lady is accused of inappropriate behavior, we do a detailed investigation into the matter. If the allegation is proven to be true, then the offending lady is removed and banned from our site.



HotRussianBrides.com is not an escort service or a pornography site.  If you are looking for that there are thousands of other web sites that offer that service. What we do provide is a way to enrich your life by discovering different cultures and building new friendships.
