Are your ladies still available?
All female members are asked to inform us when they no longer consider
themselves available so we could cancel their listings. Every week we receive
10-20 requests from women to remove their contact details because they have
found somebody they like
We do our best to keep the database up to date, sending ladies
confirmations by email, and ask them to inform us when they don't want to
receive new letters. We also regularly send emails to all women in our database
asking them if they are still available and if there was not any changes to
personal or contact details. However, some ladies may neglect or postpone to
inform us. If you find out that one of our ladies is no longer available, please
email us at
Iíve seen the profiles of some of your ladies on other sites, how can they be
It would be unfair to ask a lady to be solely represented by our agency. A lady
who has decided she will follow this route will try to optimize her situation by
making her picture and profile available to any Agency who will publicize her.
No-one has a monopoly on this; take a look on other singles or dating sites.
What is this site about?
This site is about men and Russian women who are looking to meet and correspond
with the possibility of finding a loving relationship together. The ladies we
list are from Russia, and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) which
were at one time a part of the USSR. We provide these ladies with a place to show
their pictures and information at no cost to them.
Are these girls for real?
Yes, all the girls on this site are actively trying to find a foreign partner
for marriage or a long term relationship. We ask all of our ladies, on a regular
basis, if they wish to be removed from our database so we only list the girls
who are actively looking for a partner.
Why should I seek a Russian or Ukrainian lady for my future wife?
Because they are very traditional, caring, sexy, loving, and loyal in their
views of love and marriage. There are no equals to Russian ladies for
faithfulness and loyalty. They stand proudly in times of hardship, and will
devote their love and trust to you for a lifetime. They do not have the same
attitudes toward men as most Western women. Their idea of the perfect man is
someone with a stable job who is not an alcoholic and will love them and be
faithful to them. Looks, income, age and material things are not so important to
As you can see by viewing the personal ads on this site, some of the most
beautiful women in the world live in Russia. Russian women are extremely
realistic and practical in their expectations for life. They consider good
traditional family values as being very important when choosing a partner for a
lasting relationship. These beautiful women are well educated and seek men who
are 10 to 15 years older than they are. They believe that older men are more
mature, stable, supportive, and reliable for providing a strong foundation to
build a lasting relationship on.
Why Russian women seek husbands
If you ask women this question, the answers will be:
I want my children to be happy and have a secure future, and it's impossible
with the current situation in Russia.
There are not enough men in Russia to find a partner.
Russian men are terrible.
All the statements are true to a greater extent. But at the same time none of
them gives you a real reason. The real and fundamental reason why women look for
a life partner abroad is that they are not happy in their love life. It's that
A married woman, even if she is struggling with everyday surviving and not happy
with Russian family model, won't divorce to look for a foreign husband.
Russian women want to love and be loved. Security and a better life go as a part
of the package
Unfortunately, for most Russian women, the choices in Russia are quite poor.
With the collapse of the Russian government and economy, most men do not work,
or if they do they earn a very poor wage. The high rate of unemployment and
alcoholism among Russian men also makes the women look elsewhere for good
husbands. Moving to another part of the world is not an easy decision for them.
They do not wish to leave their country but having a family is very important to
them so they decide that if they can find a good husband elsewhere then they are
willing to move to a different country.
These ladies are marriage-minded, highly educated, loyal, intelligent,
beautiful, loving, single women seeking correspondence, friendship, love, and
marriage. They have decided to leave the only life they know in order to build a
new life with the right man.
They wait for their hopes and dreams to come true. To find a kind, caring man to
love and create a loving happy family. If you are you looking for a lifetime
partner? If you are ready to begin the most exciting adventure you will ever
experience? Russian & Ukrainian women are some of the most beautiful, devoted
and faithful ladies in the world.
I have sent a letter to a lady I really liked, but she didnít answer to me,
and I donít know if I should give up or try again?
First of all you have to remember that Internet at home is still a luxury thing
for many Russians, so give her at least 3-4 days to answer to you. If you didnít
get an answer, try to send a small message Ė just do double check if she got
your first letter - it could happen that letter was lost by an Internet provider
and she didnít have idea that you wrote to her.
Are Russian women's personalities different from Western women?
Yes, they are a bit different. They don't have a different type of character,
and they also love shopping and chatting. They are human beings and they are
definitely not perfect. The main difference is that they are much more patient
and can tolerate things that Western women will never be able to bear. They are
more considerate and dependable. They are partners, not competitors.
Another important difference is that Russian women (and Russians in general)
have very low self-esteem. While Western women think that they are goddesses and
able to cope with anything on their own, a Russian woman will rarely leave a bad
(really bad) husband because of the fear that she won't find another one. For
many years the state and men have been oppressing them, and they don't think
much about themselves.
In Russia there is a shortage of good men available for marriage. This is due to
a higher death rate among Russian men, these men have one of the lowest life
expectancies rates of any developed country. Also due to the poor economic
situation in Russia many men do not want the added responsibility of a wife and
family and can not support them.
Western men have a reputation for treating their wives and family very well,
they are viewed as being more loyal, reliable, sober, and intelligent than most
Russian women are well groomed, stylish and intelligent (as are Russians in
general) but they pay much less attention to sport and other aspects of healthy
life-style. Nevertheless, they are rarely overweight - probably, because of
permanent stress and food that is expensive. And they still walk a lot because
they don't have cars
Are Russian women interested in living in any other countries apart from
Many women are interested in particular countries like Japan, Brazil, New
Zealand, Germany, Italy,
France, England, Australia, Canada and others. Usually the reason for that are
family members or friends who are staying there.
Actually, very few women would like to go only to the US, most of them don't
mind about a country if it's the right man.
I would like to write to some Russian ladies but I am not out to look for a
wife immediately, rather a friend first and then see what happens. Do ladies
You can state clearly from the very beginning that you are interested in
establishing friendship first. The majority of the women seeking partners do
expect more, but if they decide to keep contact with you, it will mean that they
accept your position.
There is nothing wrong with your position, and if you don't feel ready for
starting a long term relationship right now, you may try to start with
friendship. Beware though, that a lady can accept somebody else's offer, even if
she really likes you, just because she is not sure about your intentions
Can Russian women speak English?
Most of the ladies who apply to dating agencies can at least read and understand
English. About 25% can speak some English, and probably 10% speak English well.
In bigger cities like Moscow and St Petersburg
What kind of a sense of humor do
Russian women generally have? Do they laugh a lot or very little?
Russians have a great sense of humor, otherwise they won't be able to survive in
this country. They laugh about things instead of complaining.
Though they smile very little it the streets and in everyday life, it's not
because they have no sense of humor, but because they do not usually smile
without a reason. If you meet somebody's sight, she will usually just look back
but never smile, as in Russia it's not appropriate to smile to strangers.
The sense of humor they have is also different. Russians prefer very fine type
of jokes, with indirect humor that westerners would describe as dry. Russians do
not find it funny when somebody falls or the like, and they consider many
western comedies being silly. Loud laughing at background in sitcoms they find
irritating and stupid. When somebody makes a joke or tells a funny story, he
will usually do it with very serious expression on the face, and he will spoil
everything if laughs with others.
Is there a considerable difference between Russian and other women of the
former Soviet Union - for example, Ukrainian or Belarus?
There are some particular cultural differences between women from different
countries of the former Soviet Union but in general all information on our site
is applicable to women from all the countries. The differences are not
Ukrainian women are more outgoing and open, Russians are more reserved. At the
same time a Ukrainian wife is more likely to argue about the things than a
Russian. But of course that mostly depends on personality not nationality
Would a Russian lady be interested in living in a small town?
The majority of Russian ladies seem to be rather cosmopolitan. The reason is
that in Russia living in a small town or village is a nightmare. There are very
poor life conditions, dirtiness, no entertainment, no goods to buy, even TV
reception may be not available. Russian ladies do not know and understand the
difference between small towns in Russia and abroad, and they just have this
instinctive fear towards small towns.
Our advice is to use the following tactics when writing your letters to ladies:
1. Do not apply to women from Moscow or St. Petersburg. These cities have
completely different conditions of life from the rest of Russia. Some foreigners
told me that Moscow and St. Petersburg were not Russian cities, they are rather
European. Women there have better chances to meet foreigners as many agencies
organize tours with socials to those destinations, and ladies are becoming
spoilt and demanding.
2. Tell more about your town, its entertainment, restaurants and cafes, TV
reception and other attractions, weather conditions etc. - everything that you
like there. Do not try too hard - you must just say how nice the place is and
why you like to live there. If you stay there because one can make very good
living, mention it. Send a nice picture featuring you city in summer - with
flowers or a lake, or anything nice and warm. Tell her where you can go for
better entertainment like opera or theatre, and how far the place is.
What Russian women think about
They simply do not think about them. The majority of Russian women won't
consider an interracial marriage. As you know, there are no people of African
origin in Russia, so ladies do not put the requirement about race on their
lists. For them it's natural that they consider themselves applying only to men
of their race.
There are native inhabitants of Asian race in Russia (Bashkir, Bouryat, Koreans
and others), and this type of interracial marriage was not uncommon in the past
and still takes place. They don't talk about interracial marriages, it's not an
issue there. Russians are proud that they don't have racial problems.
There is no prejudice towards such marriages. They don't condemn somebody else's
marriage to a person of a different race. At the same time women seldom will
consider it as a personal option.
According to our questionnaire, about 85% of ladies would like to meet a white
man; 10% will consider a man of Asian origin, and 5% don't mind about a race of
their future partner.
Will you loose time pursuing
marriage to a lady from Russia if you are not white?
It depends. For Russian ladies, if you look white, you are white. They do not
separate Hispanic and whites. They adore mulattos,
especially of the lighter color. American and Europeans would have much better
chance then a colored man from Africa.
Quite a few ladies will consider a man of Asian origin as an option, though
you've got less chances than a white guy, and you will have to try harder. We
also know about successful relationships black/multiracial men had with ladies
from Russia. So, it is possible, but be prepared for rejection from some women
because of your race.
We had many Asian clients, and a black client, too. They had received fairly good
response to their ads, and established good contacts with nice ladies.
I liked one of the ladies on our pages, but in her ad it stays that she is
looking for a man till 45 and I am 50. What should I do?
We recommend you to write to her in spite of that. Everything is individual, so
if you are determined and have serious intentions Ė it will depend on you if you
will be able to conquer her attention. Just donít give up on something you
I am 60-something and I would
like to find a mate in Russia, but don't want to be a 'door mat' so she can get
here and then dump me. How should I act?
A good idea may be a personal ad in Russia. Just make your requirements clear,
so you will receive responses only from the ladies who meet them.
There are many ladies in Russia in their 40's who will be interested in you
yourself. (Just do not consider finding a 20-year-old girl - you can find one,
but your marriage will rarely last longer than 2 years...) It's almost
impossible for a woman over 40 to find a marriage partner in Russia. Men whether
have been already married, or they are not able to be husbands because of poor
health condition or alcohol addiction. Many women apply to agencies hoping to
find a husband - somewhere...
Is it true that nearly 80 percent of Russian women smoke?
No, it's not true. Some of Russian women do smoke but not more than 5-10%. In
the large cities like Moscow or St Petersburg, the percentage can be probably
What about stories of ladies coming to foreign countries and leaving shortly after the marriage?
It may happen. Not that often as media say, but it is a fact of reality. The
biggest danger of the myths the dating agencies spread is that they make men
hope that a young beautiful Russian lady will love an old unattractive foreign
man just because he lives in a better country and can guarantee her security.
Some 50-year-old men dream about a 18-year-old girl, find her, marry, and then
say that Russian women just want to get into the country. They would have never
been in such a situation if pursued marriage to a woman 35+.
In Russia people don't live decently, and some women are ready to do anything to
live a better life. Once in a relationship with a foreign guy, a woman feels
happy to be loved and cared, and grateful for changing her life for the better.
She may even feel in love when it's just a temporary intoxication.
Russian women are used to sacrificing themselves for children, and if she has a
child, she can agree to almost anything to ensure that he is safe, has food and
money for education.
A woman can be unhappy in her marriage and still feel lucky to have a better
than average life standards. Russian woman is entitled to feel happy if her
husband does not drink and has a good job, nobody talks about love, it's not
important. If a woman has a rich husband (a person owing a car, a flat, and
earning more than $400 a month), people will think she is crazy or stupid if
leaving him for love.
But good standards of living are everything only for the poverty-ridden. When
women are in a country like Switzerland, Australia or USA, their attitude changes very quickly. Love and
rewarding sexual life are important conditions of happiness. A lady was probably
not going to divorce her older husband from the very beginning, but at a later
stage she starts to feel miserable and realizes that she plugged herself into a
worse situation than she was previously in. It's two different worlds, not just
two different cultures.
A professor from a Canadian
university told us that he met a couple of men on board a plane to Russia who
flew there for a "marriage tour". He characterized them as "bad". He said they
were arrogant, obviously had problems with health, and were drinking too much.
One of them complained that he was previously married to a Russian woman but she
left him a year after the marriage. The professor said he felt sorry - for the
woman, because she had stayed with this man for the whole year. He said that he
would have run away from him in a couple of days if he was her. And this man was intending to find another lady for
marriage in Russia - again, 20-30 years younger.
It's important that you both love each other, otherwise your marriage won't
work. A woman can say "I love you" when she doesn't, it's just another Russian
women's feature. They are not able to refuse when a man insists. You must not
fool yourself. You will always feel if it's a true feeling.
We don't believe that any woman would like to get married to just divorce her
husband in 2-3 years, if she can get
married for love.
Russians are surprisingly non-materialistic when it's about true love. You may
think that we are not consistent saying that, but the truth is that Russians are
not consistent. They think with their hearts and feelings. They can have beliefs
but act in the opposite way because of feelings. They will follow their
decisions made by mind until true feelings get involved. (It's why sometimes
westerners think that Russians are irrational. They are rational but in their
A successful marriage can only be based on love and mutual respect whether it's
a Russian woman or a Western one. Your foreign citizenship can make you more
attractive to Russian ladies but it can't make your marriage more successful.
Russian women make good wives - that's true, but only if she wants to be your
Do I need a visa for the countries in the former USSR?
For almost all the countries in the former USSR, you must arrange a visa with
their embassy in your country. You usually require a formal letter of invitation
from a tourist company, and to have booked somewhere to stay before you will be
granted a visa.
Why is alcohol abuse in Russia pervasive? Can I not drink when offered?
Alcohol is the only affordable way to have some fun and get rid of the hard
reality of everyday fight for survival. The other things like gyms, travel,
arts, concerts etc are too expensive. It's also always was a part of culture,
and skills to drink a lot and not get drunk are considered to be a part of "the
real man" image.
You don't have to drink, if you don't wan to. You may say that you are sick and
use medicine that does not allow using any alcohol, or just take a sip and put
your glass back. Or just say that you are strongly against drinking - Russians
are aware that many foreigners are not 100% right in their heads ;-)
Will I get hassled by government
when visiting Russia?
It's not a Soviet Union and the times of cold war. The government doesn't care
about foreign tourists anymore, they have too many things to think of
How much money would it cost to travel to Russia from the United States? How
much does it take to survive a day in Russia?
It depends on you - how expensive your habits are, on the period you are going
to stay and on the city you are visiting. Moscow and St. Petersburg are very
expensive. You may hope it will be enough to have about US $150 for a day in
cash or travel checks. Anyway, you should have your credit card with you -
Russia is unpredictable, and you may need some extra money. Make sure that all
your travel arrangements are prepaid, and book through a well-established travel
agency or Internet site.
How do most Russian ladies fare being so far away from home, is homesickness
Yes, in the very beginning it's a problem. Women feel very lonely and even cry
A woman does not know the country and people, she experiences difficulties with
the simplest things like buying stuff in a supermarket, she can't fluently
But women don't want to go back to Russia. They miss their friends and family
but not the country itself. Some women don't realize how big the
difference is between Russia/Ukraine and other countries. When they have lived for a
while in a country like Italy, Canada or Japan, they get used to it quickly.
Are the women on your service really interested in me, or just coming to my
There are a variety of reasons as to why the women choose to join our service.
It has been our experience that the primary objective of these women is to find
a loyal, dependable, stable man with whom they can build a happy and loving
family. These women are now searching outside of their country for this because
for whatever reason or reasons they have not yet been able to find that one
special person. In Russia for instance, there is a serious shortage of Russian
men due to a combination of war and the high male death ratio. Alcoholism is
also a very serious problem affecting many Russian males. A poor economic
environment causes many men to shun the responsibilities of a wife and family. A
family is very important to the vast majority of these women, thus they are
forced to expand their search for their mate. The Internet has also opened up a
whole new world of opportunities to these women that their mothers never
enjoyed. They are no longer confined to their own cities and towns when
searching for a husband. They can now search the world over for the right person
Is age an important factor?
Studies show men and women seek different goals in marital partners. Men seek
youth and beauty. Women seek mature, older, healthy, intelligent, successful,
stable men who will love and respect them, with the ability to protect and
provide for the family. It is a fact of life. In many other cultures, such as
the Russian culture, the women tend to have much more reasonable expectations.
They have not yet been media programmed with a youth-oriented outlook on life.
Many Russian men lack a certain maturity towards family and relationships. Most
Russian women are extremely mature for their years.
Russian women view an older man as being more reliable, stable, successful and
secure. These ladies are extremely mature and practical for their age. These
women are looking for a good stable partner whom they can trust and rely on for
support as well as being a good provider for a family. It is not unusual for a
Russian woman to marry a man 15 to 20 years older.
We attempt to be as diverse as possible. We have women on our
database from all walks of life, different cultures, and varying age groups. Age
does become a factor when choosing whom you will be most compatible with;
however, do not let it become a barrier. For many women an older person
represents stability, security and wisdom. In many cultures it is not uncommon
to see major age differences between spouses.
When do you update your web site?
The data on our web site is updated weekly. Women who are engaged, married or no
longer available are removed within 72 hours.
What about the disadvantages? Isn't the language barrier a problem?
Naturally, the cultural differences mentioned above that can add the ďsparkĒ can
also be a source of friction in a marriage. There can be major differences
regarding everything from the marriage ceremony itself to how the children are
raised. However, like most problems in life between people, they can be solved
if both parties are truly committed to the overall relationship.
The language barrier can and will be a problem for couples in which at least one
of the partners is not fluent in both languages. Generally, foreign brides-to-be
learn the language of the country in which theyíll be living, because theyíll
need it not only to communicate with their new husbands, but to survive on a
daily basis. This is usually not a problem, because the women who are serious
about finding husbands abroad prepare themselves by studying English or German
or the language of whatever country theyíre most interested in residing. And
English has been taught to all students in Russian and Eastern European
secondary for the past few decades, so just about everyone who needs to speak
fluent English has a solid base from which to start.
Are the women on your site all still single, and genuine?
Everyone in our album is single, has not been purchased from any other site or
intermediary, and is as genuine in her intentions as we are humanly able to
ascertain from both direct written and spoken communication. To that end, if
someone begins acting in less than honorable ways, she is removed from the
album. Once a lady has found her special someone, she, too, is removed from our
site. Women can request to be removed at any time, and we also will investigate
any complaints of unusual or insincere behavior from our clients. We won't ever
hesitate to remove someone if their behavior demands it. Having
a solid, honorable relationship is much, much more important for us than a few
Do I need to translate my
emails I send?
No it is not necessary to translate the letters you send unless the lady you are
writing requests you to do so. Most of the Russian women listed on this site
speak some English or are currently learning the English language. If the lady
you are writing to can not read English usually she knows a neighbor or friend
who will translate it for her. However we provide a free translation service for
Looking at your photo album I
see hundreds of beautiful women and I cannot believe they all cannot find a man
there in Russia?
It is a tragedy of this country... So many beautiful, educated, cultured,
intelligent women and... no men to start a family with. Just the official info:
there are 10 million women more in Russia than men... Let's see further.
Unfortunately so many men who are still alive are hard to be called "men" any
more... Drugs and vodka do their job. They are lost for society and for women as
potential husbands. The percentage of such "lost" men is awfully high.
have any official numbers but we believe there are much more than 10 million.
So, HOW MANY single women who are not able to meet a men we see?? We suspect if
ALL European men get married in Russia there still will be thousands and thousands
single beautiful women there
How to make a right choice?
You never know in advance if this certain girl can be match for you... Sometimes
two nicest and most intelligent people cannot be together because of any
mysterious reasons that are not ever visible for others as well as for them,
too! But anyway, you have to start somehow. So, try to tell yourself first what
are the most important SIMPLE issues for you in a woman that can be your wife:
if you are agree she to have children, if her education is important for you, if
her height or weight are important, etc. Look at the photos and see which girls
appeal to you the most.
I was scammed a few times. How can I know if your ladies are honest?
We know about scams maybe more than anybody else because we provide
investigations for men at the cases they feel something wrong about the lady
they corresponded with. Yes, it happens. Some dishonest people use girls or just
beautiful photos that they get in magazines or on other sites and make money on
men who think they correspond with a real girl. Men are asked for money "For
corresponding/translation service", "I can get a visitor's visa to the US but I
need $2.000.00 for this", "For tickets to visit you, my dear", etc. We remove all and each lady if we get any compromising info about
her wrong behavior or intentions.
