Women who would be considered of model quality in the west are often only believed to be of average beauty in Russia. In fact if you meet a Russian woman and tell her how beautiful you think she is there is a good chance she won’t believe you.

In her eyes she really is only average!

Here you will discover some of the best Russian dating sites. Finding the right site when looking for your Russian beauty is extremely important. The quality of the women featured on the various sites differs quite significantly and the number of features available also sets some sites apart from the rest.

Russian women are hands down some of the sexiest, most sophisticated, and ambitious women you’ll ever meet in your life. And, while there’s definitely a shortage of Russian women throughout the U.S., the truth is there’s plenty in the motherland that are seeking the man of their dreams – especially a foreigner.

Now, with this, it must be understood that just like any other foreign women you seek out online, there will always be a fair share of risks, scams, or insincere women around. But, have no fear, as the ratio of genuine, beautiful, and single Russian women far outnumber those that are only looking for a dig at your wallet.

But, before you go off mingling with Russian women online, or going to Russia for a visit, carefully read and study these Top 5 Myths about Dating Russian Women to maximize your chances of meeting the Russian woman of your dreams.

1. She Only Wants Your Money

A lot of people both online and off might claim that Russian women are notorious for only wanting money, expensive jewelry, and clothes but this is far from the truth. In fact, often those that speak about Russian women this way have either never actually dated one, or, went about finding and dating one through all the wrong channels.

This is why it’s so important to carefully choose the type of (Russian) women you interact with, and make certain that she is who she says she is. And, while yes, Russian women are traditional in that they expect you to foot the bill for dinner, most are not stereotypical “spoiled” and only after you for your money. In reality, many are only seeking a genuine, romantic, and loving man that will treat them better than how the local men do.

2. Speaking Russian Fluently Will ‘Seal the Deal’

It’s understandable why you might “think” that speaking Russian fluently will get you the woman of your dreams, but this is often not the case. So, while speaking basic Russian, phrases, or being able to read a little is helpful, most Russian women will be more concerned about how respectful, sincere, and loving you can be towards them – not just how many languages you can speak.

Also, think about how you might feel towards Russian women that interest you who speak English fluently. Suspicious? Perhaps. The truth is, this is a two-way street, and discretion is key.

Just because she speaks English fluently doesn’t necessarily mean she’s in the market for hustling foreigners, just like you speaking Russian doesn’t guarantee you’re in the market for ‘collecting’ as many Russian flags or dates as you can.

For example, most Russian women take education quite seriously, and because English is such a powerful business language most universities in Russia teach English. So, be yourself, and if need be either practice Russian or use a translator so that you can maximize your efforts.

3. She Only Wants Fancy Dining

While Russian women love to go out and enjoy fine dining, there is actually more meaning and truth behind this than just the dollar sign. In other words, don’t feel inclined to take her to the most expensive place you can find for your date. Instead, try to understand why it is she prefers to eat out as opposed to your home or hers.

Russian women are very traditional, and an invitation to your home could send the wrong signal and make her feel like you’re only interested in sex. On the other hand, an invitation to a Russian woman’s home to meet her family is a very serious gesture, typically reserved for the most serious relationships.

In Russia, reputation means everything, and they are indeed prideful to an extent. So, unless you’re very serious about one another, try to save these types of settings for later on in your relationship – and don’t be surprised if she’s saving herself for marriage.

4. You Will ALWAYS Foot the Bill

Going off the previous tips, always “treating” your Russian date or girlfriend should be interpreted as the “manly” thing to do and is most meaningful because it is what their culture teaches. Again, this doesn’t mean spending an arm and a leg for meals together on dates out and about on the town.

In fact, there’s nothing wrong with being frugal, keeping things simple, and instead dedicating more time and energy to somewhere special, romantic, and meaningful for both of you.

Plenty of Russian women work for a living, study, or both. Typically, they have money of their own but are often using the majority if not all to help and support their family. This is just “par for the course” and should be something you expect, not dread. And, on the bright side, know that once you begin getting serious with a Russian woman, there’s no doubt she’ll treat you like a king.

You will experience love, compassion, and passion like you never have before – so we promise it’ll all be worth it in the end.

5. Russian Women Only Want an ‘Alpha Male’

Generally speaking, Russian men are no doubt rather “macho”, but, this does not always impress, nor does it guarantee happiness for the average, single, beautiful, and ambitious Russian girl.

Also, Russian men often tend to be insensitive, lack romanticism, and more often than not drink a bit more than they should.

Because of this, while it’s true a Russian woman wants a man that can protect her, she also wants one that knows how to love her. So be sure to take pride in your appearance, your health, and how you present yourself to others. And, know that biceps like Vin Diesel are not a must, but rather romanticism, chivalry, and respect will go much farther than how much you can curl or bench press.

So, what makes Russian women so great, and why do foreigners from around the world go absolutely crazy for them? There’s plenty of good reasons that men admire, pursue, and love Russian women, no matter how near or far, or what it takes to achieve meeting one and creating a future together.

So, let’s review some of the biggest differences between Russian and American women, and why men dream of a Russian princess to sweep off her feet and one day marry.

1. Russian women are beautiful, and they know it. Not only this, but Russian women take serious pride in, and work hard to maintain their beautiful, fit bodies, gorgeous long hair, and perfect, tight, long legs and just the right fit body tone.

They take their health very seriously, and in comparison, are typically much more health savvy, but also actually active in proper dieting – and will likely try to rub off on you too if you’re receptive enough. After all, your Russian beauty will want you to be healthy and live as long as possible to live a long, fulfilling life together.

2. A lot of men have the negative experiences of being lied to, cheated on, or strung along with the women they meet in America or other comparable western countries. This seems to be not just simply a part of the culture, but in particular, the way women are raised in these places – which is anything but desirable.

And while it’s true many American women know what loyalty is and display it, it’s likely nowhere near as common as it is with Russian women. They are brought up by their families to be supportive, loving, humble, and honest. Russians are taught by their families how to be providers, sincere, hard-workers, but also survivors.

Your Russian girlfriend will always have your back, and even when you’re not around will gladly stand up for you, never embarrass you, or allow other men to flirt with her or vice versa. This is hard to find in a lot of American women, and women in general – so it’s definitely a huge plus.

3. Russian women will challenge you in all aspects of your life, and expect from you what you say you’ll do, promise, or aspire to be. This is very beneficial, and having such a supportive woman in your life can be hard to come by now a days, no matter where you’re from.

4. No matter how successful you are, if you’re having a hard time, or not doing well financially, a Russian woman will always have your back, and stick it out with you through thick and thin. And unlike a lot of other women, she’ll always be willing to go to work, even if she never has before, or has minimal experience and skills. Russian women are not only ambitious, but dedicated, and it shows in the relationships they have with men.

5. A lot of foreigners are attracted to Russian women not so much because they ‘play hard to get’, but because as beautiful as they are, and as sexy as they dress, they still have class and leave something for the imagination. This too can be difficult to come by, and self-respect goes a long way when it comes time bring home your girlfriend, love, or future wife to meet your mother and family.

6. Russian women are also considerably more feminine in comparison to American women, and it’s uncommon you’ll ever really see them spitting, cursing, yelling, or acting behaving in any way beyond how a classy woman might be expected to conduct herself.

They also know how to handle their liquor, are considerably more responsible, and don’t constantly need you there supporting them, holding their hair back, or carrying them home after a long night out on the town. It’s not common that you’ll meet a Russian woman with tattoos, at least not visible with normal clothing on, and in America it’s often all too common– and for many men, a big turn-off.

7. Russian women take good care of their body and hygiene, always ensure they are clean, that they smell great, look great, and carry themselves with considerably more integrity. They don’t try to “act like the boys” or fit in, and will respect your “man time” without pressuring you to come along – which can be both unwanted and awkward.

8. Lastly, Russian women often tend to have much more world interests, knowledge, and experiences in comparison, which will always make for great conversation, and increase their overall appeal. Typically, Russian women are also quite educated, and along with this have an entrepreneurial mindset which is always a big plus, are typically good with money, and will always be there when you need her.


How to Meet Russian Women Online


Meeting a woman from anywhere in the world via online can seem like an impossible task. Pursuing and finding a Russian friend or lover can seem even more difficult, especially given mail-order bride websites and other source’s negative stigmas about experiences using such services.

However, with that being said, the same argument could be made for meeting and finding American women online. To try to stereotype an entire nationality of people or culture is irresponsible, and in the end, you will only deprive yourself of the endless potential cultural benefits, experiences, and even one day love should you not be willing to ‘broaden your horizons’.

Chat Sites

Many people don’t realize it, but there’s actually great differences between dating sites and chat-sites. For example, an actual chat site (chat-room) with local or far-away Russians should be free, for the most part. That is, excluding webcam chat sites or other sex oriented sites, or of course in the instance of a mail order bride website.

Immersing yourself into a Russian chat room can be a great way not only to make new friends, but also practice and learn the Russian language, observe their habits and hobbies, likes or dislikes, and practice your ‘game’ or approach in interacting with Russian women.

While some of these chat rooms will seem to only be Russian-language based, you might be surprised to find that a substantial amount of Russian (women specifically) are at least semi-fluent English and would be absolutely infatuated with the idea of an adventurous western or American guy pursuing new friends and prospective love in a Russian “only” chat room.

Dating Sites

Now these are the sites that we previously mentioned. Most of these will charge for a membership, or some other sorts of usage-fees so use your discretion, and if possible, compare prices of the various dating sites. While some might “guarantee” you to find your true Russian love, understand that nobody, at any stage of your life, can do the work for you or “guarantee” you finding your one true love.

Statistically speaking as far as success rates go, the most desirable and seemingly genuine chat-sites to meet Russian women will be the kinds in which you are able to actually obtain a third-party form of communicating with your new Russian lady—may it be via Skype, or simply writing letters. Be wary, and do your research of each site that you consider, as there are not only plenty of scams out there, but specifically websites that are using BOTS or (unfortunately, yes) hired “men” to pretend to be women to suck money out of you.

So whether or not you are just seeking new friends, a hookup, sex-chat, or video chatting, it’s completely up to you to decipher between the best sites by sifting through reviews of each site, and getting a feel for the environment. It may also be ideal for you to research and register for Russian online-dating forums so that you can discuss with likeminded foreigners experiences, recommendations, and warnings about various sites or sources to meet a Russian woman (your future love).

Discussion Boards


As we mentioned previously, discussion boards can actually be a very valuable asset to meeting and making new Russian friends—as well as a prospective future Russian lover. While there are general Russian forum sites, there’s also hobby sites.

Factually speaking, Russians love Hockey and Soccer, so consider joining up some of these sorts of forum hobby sites and interacting with other users—you never know what or who you might stumble across! Even better, the majority of such discussion boards are free to register and use—as technically, most weren’t exactly intended to meet Russian women, this is just you being resourceful!

Russian Facebook (VK.com)

A Facebook specifically designed for Russians?! Crazy, right? We know! So go on and get registered! There’s no harm in trying to network, meet new people, and chat up new Russian women (hopefully single) and seeing where it takes you!

Just as with reputable dating sites, it shouldn’t be any surprise that plenty of people have had success in meeting their (often foreigner) love through social-networking sites that were absolutely free to signup for and use! Again, there’s an emphasis on trying to brush up on basic Russian before or while using this site, and just being an honest, straightforward guy will go all the while further!

As mentioned previously, plenty of Russian’s speak English, or at least partially understand and can communicate with it on a basic level. Whether or not they admit to it, or wish to do so, is completely up to them and their personality. So just as in real life, with any woman, try not to be overbearing, be friendly, and just be yourself!

It also might be helpful to study up a bit on Russian culture, popular foods, sports, and hobbies so that you can perhaps find something that you’d both have in common and be able to chat about!

Remember, nothing is impossible! There is a Russian expression that literally translates to English and means: For every new language you speak, you are a new Man.

Popular and Well Known Young Russian Models

Models hail from all over the world. The Russian models are some of the most notorious, known for their beautiful skin and pouty lips.

Over the past decade, more supermodels than ever have hailed from Russia, so they are starting to make more of a name for themselves now than ever before.

Not only do they have exquisite beauty, but also the smarts and elegance to truly make it in the world of fashion.

You can get into modeling and create a career for yourself, no matter where you are from. Modeling is a particularly bustling, successful career in the United States, which is why so many models travel to the US to start or continue their modeling aspirations.

Although there are hundreds of thousands of Russian models in the business, there are a few in particular which continue to stand out and become a household name.

Natalia Vodianova is certainly one of the most notorious Russian supermodels. She burst into the spotlight in 2001, and since that time has campaigned for some of the biggest fashion designers in the world.

That includes names like Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Gucci, and Miss Sixty. Her name is recognized not only in Russia from which she hails, but all around the world as one of the most beautiful and glamorous Russian models to ever hit the scene.

Another of the most well-known young Russian model is Anna Selezneva.

Russian Brides For Sale

Are Russian Brides For Sale?

beautiful sexy russian womanAre Russian brides for sale? The real truth is that women who put their profiles up on the internet are looking for soul mates. Just like you, they are hoping to find someone who will love them for who they are.

Men on dating sites should not think that paying for a membership means that they will own the women they are connected with. Just think about it logically, if you email a local woman, will you go around thinking that she owes you because you paid to get your membership?

Not likely.

Additionally, you do not think that the local women you meet online are for sale even if most of them would love to be brides. The Russian women and girls that you encounter on dating sites also have aspirations of becoming brides one day.

However, this does not mean that they are offering themselves up for sale to the highest bidder. They are simply seeking for genuine relationships characterized by love, mutual respect and understanding. Therefore, you should accord them the same respect that you show your fellow countrymen.

The concept of purchasing a Russian bride or that of Russian women selling themselves is a peculiar one. Although the desire to lead a more comfortable life is a general human objective, we do not say that a company which outsources labor from another country is purchasing people.

However, talk of certain sports clubs buying players is common and could be the source of all this misconception.

So how do you differentiate between a person who was bought and one who relocated to another country for love?

Why is it that a mother of three who moves from new Zealand to live in America with a boyfriend that she met online is not considered to be a ‘mail order bride’ but one who moved from Russia to live with an Australian boyfriend that she met on the web is considered as one? Their address might be for sale but you cannot buy love and affection. It is earned.

Costs of Dating a Russian Woman

There are many misconceptions about the “Russian mail order bride” business and the expenses involved. It is inconceivable how people have put it in their heads that they can just log onto a website and select the most beautiful women who will then be shipped off to them after they pay up. It does not work that way.

Unless you are dealing with unscrupulous slave traders, there is no way you can buy a woman. The term ‘mail order bride’ came from the fact that letters used to be sent via mail and not from any ‘mail order’ service.

However, people did not just win women over with checks in the past. There are some unscrupulous companies that charge people a fee of more than $1,800 for people to join their sites. At such a fee, people are likely to be convinced that they are buying the women.

Nowadays the ‘mail order bride’ business is similar to conventional online dating. How does it work?

  1. Begin your search at a reputable online agency such as Elena’s which has loads of Russian women looking for love. Cost: free
  2. Choose a few profiles that you like and decide whether or not you will register to be a member. The photographs on their profiles should help you decide whether to sign up or not. Cost: free
  3. When you find some girls that you like, you can communicate with them once you select one membership plan. Once you become a member, you will have access to their contact details including emails, Skype as well as their postal address. Cost: from 16.50 dollars a month.
  4. Be on the lookout for companies that charge you per contact or require you to communicate through a private website thus keeping the girl’s contact information a secret. Avoid sites that charge a mandatory translation fees as they can add up quickly.
  5. Grow your relationship by communicating by email, chatting on phones, holding video conferencing sessions on Skype and swapping photographs. This will not cost you anything unless you grow a strong relationship.
  6. At one stage, you will feel the need to meet the other person face to face so as to take the relationship to the next level. If you are travelling on a plane, the ticket might cost anywhere from several hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. However, if you have a strong relationship, you only get to do it once. Cost: 100 – 500 dollars.
  7. Lastly, when you are sure that you have found that special someone, you may have to get a visa and plane ticket to fly her in. This is the most costly step but it is worth it. You only need to do it once if you want to marry the girl. Cost: $3500

If you compare the total cost to the amount most guys spend on dates, flowers and movies, you will find that online dating is cheaper. It is less expensive because you chat up several girls to find the most suitable one without spending a dime on them. Men report finding a wife within six to eighteen months of joining Elena’s dating site. Therefore, if you have good intentions, finding a mate is easy.


Russian Girl Sexy BodyAre you a man trying to find the perfect bride?  Have you been trying to find a wife, but things just aren’t happening?  Many men who want to find a wife end up looking to a foreign country as the place to find a wife.  Have you considered looking into dating a Russian woman?  There are a lot of websites that offer Russian dating. Here is some helpful information about Russian dating and how to find the right Russian woman for you.

Find a Russian Dating Website

If you are not serious about dating and finding a wife then don’t bother to sign up because the women who are on these dating sites are seriously looking for a husband.  The idea of these websites is to help men who have given up on looking for a wife in their own country and are needing the website to help them find a match with the perfect Russian woman.

What Russian Women Want

A big difference between Russian women and western women is that Russian women are raised to believe in traditional family values, and they really don’t have any career goals.  In Russia, women put family first and stay home with the children while the men are the ones that go out and work.

Find out About Russia

Since you are going to be marrying someone from Russia, it might be really helpful to do your homework on Russia.  Find out where your potential bride is from and start brushing up on your knowledge of the culture and the history of Russia.  Russia has a beautiful country with an amazing history that you need to learn about.


When you finally find the right Russian woman for you its time to start communicating.  You probably feel really nervous but it is important that you start to get to know the woman whom you want to share the rest of your life with.  As the letters start going back and forth between you and your future wife things will get easier.

Save for a Trip to Russia

Writing letters to your Russian bride isn’t enough; you need to take a trip to Russia to meet your bride face to face.  Remember to dress your best for your big meeting; you want to make an impression on the woman that you want to become your wife.

Men who have not had a lot of success finding a wife in their own country will turn to a foreign dating website to help them find a wife.  There are a lot of websites to help you make a love connection, and there are some things you need to do.  You are about to enter an exciting chapter in your life, which is becoming a husband and possibly starting a family.
