First of all, placing information online is the easiest way for Russian brides to find men from abroad (and vice versa) to get to know with hope of building a relationship. Very few women have a chance to communicate with foreigners directly (and it is often only in business related situations), even though many women prefer to build a relationship with one over a Russian man. Over the years foreign men have proven over the years to be more caring and appreciative of their women, as well as capable of taking care of their partner and the family.
Second, online dating will allow you to have your pick and gather as much information as you require before planning a meeting or making a decision about settling with a particular Russian woman. Whether you use one or several online dating services, you will be able to see hundreds and thousands of profiles of women to choose from. These profiles, offered by the dating services will give you plenty of information about a woman’s interests, her goals, life and preferences. This will help you find the lady that is the best match for you and avoid getting to like someone before you find out that the two of you are really not compatible.
The profiles will also have photos of the ladies, so you can take as much time as you wish to select women, who match your beauty wants and standards. Some agencies and online dating services will offer you a wide selection of photos for each lady – from sophisticated pictures in a dressy gown to sweet family photos, which is a great way to see more of what your lady can be like. Certain services can also provide you with a video of a lady you like, so you could have a better idea of what she is like in person, since photos don’t always reveal the personality.
Another great thing about dating Russian women online is that you can have as much freedom in getting to know them as you wish. Using online services you can contact several ladies at once to see which one of them is the best match for you at your own pace, without any concerns for double-scheduling, etc. Naturally, if some lady has touched your heart more than others, you can take full advantage of numerous communication means online agencies offer and move your relationship along as fast/slow as you like. Email is not the only way to contact your sweetheart, you can easily have phone calls, vide conferences, chat, etc. to get to know her, and that with a translator available when you need one!
Placing your information in an online service also gives you plenty of time and freedom to represent yourself well. A personal meeting can often be too short or too intimidating, and if you are shy at all, you might not be able to create the impression you want or share all the qualities/information as you would like to. Placing your profile and displaying your photos gives you this opportunity, so a lady looking for a partner on a website can learn everything about you that you would like for her to know. If being family-oriented is your strength – show this through your photos, if you are romantic – express it in words, etc – possibilities are endless.
There are a few things to remember when filling out a profile. First, do not forget to put a picture of yourself. For one thing, it will make your communication with women more personal – they will know to whom they are writing, it is much easier to write to a person when you can picture his/her face, instead of a blank spot for a photo. Some men are concerned that their appearance is not that of a movie star, and they refrain from placing any photos for this very reason. Of course, physical attraction plays part in starting a relationship, but Russian women who are seriously interested in finding a loyal, caring husband are much more likely to pay attention to you inner qualities, than outer attributes. When placing a photo with your profile, make sure that you are well-groomed in it (tidy outfit, suitable haircut, etc) – Russian women will find this attractive.
Second thing to remember when placing a profile is to be forward and honest. Whatever your reasons are for joining a website – be open about it. If you are looking for a wife, make it clear, if you are only interested in a pen pal – state it as well. This will attract women with interests similar to yours, and no one’s time will be wasted or feelings hurt.
Many men get insulted or suspicious when a profile will ask them to list information about their income or financial status, but the reason behind it is simply common sense. This doesn’t mean that you have to give a full income report or be a millionaire, but it is a great way to let Russian women know that you are financially stable. What this will mean to a Russian woman, most of whom place family interests first, is that you are capable of taking care of her and your future children, and provide for the family.
Of course, among the advantages of using online services, support from them is not to be discounted. Most reliable, experienced agencies will have professionals available to answer any questions you might have, guide you through the dating (and even selection) process, help with any cultural issues you might have, help you plan your meetings/travel, and support couples as far in their relationship as getting visas and smoothing the transition of your bride moving to a new country.
No matter how much or little of online services you decide to use, remember to look for reliable companies that have been in existence for a while, do your research, and do not hesitate to ask questions (about women, services, culture, etc) to ensure that you make the most of your online dating experience.
