If you're looking for a Russian bride then how do you get started? What's the best way of finding a Russian bride and finding out if a Russian bride is for you? This article will give you enough tips to get you started on your Russian bride search...
Dating Site, Introduction Agency or Romance Tour?
The first thing to consider when looking for a Russian mail order bride is how to find her.
There are plenty of matchmaking sites where you can find Russian women looking for foreign husbands. When choosing a dating site don't pay too much attention to sexy ladies on the home page, or glowing testimonials. Most sites have similar selections of ladies. It's far more important to choose a site that has a reasonable membership fee as well as a good catalog of ladies available. Beware of sites that advertise themselves as having thousands or tens of thousands of ladies - less is generally more when it comes to online dating (think quality not quantity). Stay away of sites that charge you to contact each lady, especially those that charge you for sending emails to the ladies, or for chatting on webcam.
There are also a few free Russian dating sites, but free dating sites generally attract people looking for short term relationships, as well as plenty of scammers. Finding sincere, marriage minded singles on a free dating site is a lot of effort.
Introduction agencies can be worth a look. There are a number of marriage agencies with offices in the Ukraine and Russia. Generally you can visit them and be introduced to ladies in person. Ladies like introduction agencies as they provide a safe way of meeting a foreign man in their own country. Agencies also tend to be more selective of the ladies they allow to register with the agency. If you're interested in Russian marriage agencies then be sure to find out their costs in advance.
Online dating can be a big waste of time, whatever country you want to find love in. So why not apply for a Russian visa then visit ladies in person? A few companies arrange regular romance tours to Russia, the Ukraine and other Eastern European counties. On a trip you'll visit a city such as Moscow, Odessa or Kiev and attend two or more social evenings where you'll meet dozens of marriage minded single Russian women. These trips avoid the usual online dating scams, although there's no guarantee you'll start a relationship with any of the ladies you meet on the tour.
