Russian Brides Club is a Russian mail order brides dating site where Western men can chat and email Russian ladies online. Russian Brides Club's female members are from Russian and a range of former Soviet countries including the Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Lithuania.
Russian Brides Club operates on a pay per use basis. Like all dating sites you can sign up for free, and with Russian Brides Club there's no time limit on free membership. On the site you pay every time you contact a lady. You can request a lady's personal details, but they'll usually only release these once you've sent around 15 letters to a lady. The site cites the IMBRA law as being the reason. In reality this is usually an excuse to get you to part with more cash. What's more, IMBRA only applies to US men, yet the site doesn't mention if it's possible for non-US residents to request a lady's personal contact details without having to send her lots of letters first.
Russian Brides Club has a comprehensive search facility, although it's a bit fiddly to set up searches. Once you run the search engine you'll see a list of matching profiles. You can view photos of the Russian women on the site, together with a few pieces of information about themselves. There are some very sexy women on this site! If you like a lady, you can rate her on a scale of 1 to 5.
One unique feature of Russian Brides Club is that the cost you pay to contact a lady depends on how popular she is. Popularity usually depends on how sexy the girl's professional photos are. If she is already talking to other men then you have to pay more credits in order to contact her. While in theory this discourages a lot of men from talking to the same lady, a cynic might say that it's just another way of extracting money from the site's male members. If you're using a dating site then it's natural that you'll want to contact the best ladies on the site - why settle for second best? Us men have a raw deal on dating sites - we normally end up paying through the nose while women can register for free.
Russian Brides Club Scams
Scam ladies are common on most Russian dating sites so it's best to be careful whichever site you're using. Obviously the key is to never send money to a lady you're talking to online. If you want to send her something, send chocolates or stuffed animals. Never send money.
Beyond the problem with scammers, the biggest issue with Russian Brides Club is that the pay per contact type of Russian dating site is expensive. Even if you're just paying $1 a letter, the cost quickly mounts up. My experience with the Chnlove Chinese dating site shows that you'll need to spend hundreds of dollars paying for letters if you're going to chat to a sensible number of different women. I know men who have spent over $1000 on foreign bride letter writing sites - this is crazy when there are far cheaper alternatives...
