There’s plenty of sites advertising beautiful foreign brides and female companions, but you can’t help but wonder is this even real? Are these women really this beautiful? How is this even possible?An employee from the website, RussianLoveMatch.com, did a Reddit Ask Me Anything to answer questions about foreign dating sites. If you’ve ever been curious about foreign brides please read on.
What kind of woman typically signs up for this service? Age? Are they really hot? What circumstances do they seem to be in?
We have women between the ages of 18 – late 50s. Some are indeed really hot. Circumstances? Who knows. Judging from their photos and videos, they’re doing okay. Not rich, but not digging potatoes out of the frozen tundra.
Most women join the site because they’re curious or adventurous, want to expand their dating pool, etc. The women aren’t clamoring to leave Russia like many Westerners think. In fact, getting a Visa and moving thousands of miles away from their home is pretty grueling, as you can imagine.
I’m pretty skeptical. A girl like that could easily be a professional model. You have to wonder how legit this site actually is…
This is a totally valid concern. Keep in mind though, that they’re all made up to look their absolute best and those are professional photos the introduction agencies (where women go to use computer) have helped set up. Also, the “most popular = hottest” women appear on the site first. We have plenty of “average looking” women as well.
What is the “success rate” for men? Do you know what the men are like? Like sexist or just into exotic women?
The success rate is impossible to calculate because we don’t keep tabs on members or the status of their relationships.
The men vary, of course. Some are sexist and into exotic women, but most are normal guys who are intrigued by the idea of meeting women from overseas and opening up their dating pool.
Do you hear about any success/ horror stories?
I hear success stories all the time. Many couples email us their pics and stories for the testimonials page. Most of the horror stories I heard came from our customer service department about men who literally expected to buy a bride and were mad when a woman didn’t do what they wanted (meet on command, chat on command, marry on command).
Is the movie “Birthday Girl” with Nicole Kidman a pretty accurate portrayal of what usually happens?
No. If I recall, the man in that movie ordered the woman without meeting her first, which isn’t realistic. Also, he called customer service in one scene and got a VM. We’re available 24/7 to meet all your Russian bride needs. 🙂 Phone, email, mail, and web hostesses!
As someone who is deeply attracted to European women, what are my best options to fulfill this desire?
Well, I educate the men on our site. So if you were a member, I’d tell you to take a look at the profiles (we have nearly 10,000 women), message a few ladies who appeal to you, be polite and respectable at all times, and take it from there. Also, have realistic expectations.
I’m nervous about signing up. Is my profile confidential? Can others see that I’m seeking a Russian bride?
I want to let men know that their profiles are confidential. Meaning, only Russian women and site employees can see male profiles. Plus, the profiles only display user names, never first and last names. We understand that some guys aren’t comfortable with others knowing about their international dating activity (because of stereotypes and such).
