How to Avoid Bad Russian Brides
If you read all fhe fluff and marketing talk on Russian dating sites you'll probably start to think that Russian women are 100% the best ladies in the world.
Well I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but many dating sites write total rubbish on their sites. So don't get suckered in. For instance, many sites show glowing testimonials of happy couples who have met through the site. But what they don't show you is the subsequent divorce rate. Statistics show that marriages between American men and foreign women generally have a lower divorce rate that between two Americans. But men do end up divorcing their foreign brides on occasion. Personally I know of several failed marriages between American men and foreign ladies. These men were second time around daters, yet they still ended up getting married to the foreign woman of their dreams and then regretting it afterwards.
A big reason for choosing a Russian bride is that the Western man is fed up with Western women. This isn't always a good reason for choosing a foreign bride. There are just as many bad Russian brides as there are bad women in America and other Western countries.
The best way to avoid a bad Russian bride is to live with her for six months or so before marrying her. Get her over to your country on a fiance visa. Or take time off from your life and go and live in Eastern Europe for a while. Get to see what she's like in good times and in bad. If it doesn't work out then she can go back home, and you can look for somebody else.
How to Avoid A Foreign Affair Scams
A Foreign Affair is a company specialising in finding foreign brides for American men. The company has interests in Latin America, Asia, and most of all in Russia and Eastern Europe.
A Foreign Affair operates a wide range of websites, but they all have a similar basic model. You can request a lady's contact email address for a few dollars. There's a bulk discount offer, as well as further discounts if you sign up for monthly membership of the site. You can also send ladies and email. This is a very expensive service compared to using a site like RussianEuro where you can send unlimited emails to as many ladies as you can handle.
A Foreign Affair claims that all their ladies are legitimate. In practice it's hard to prove. I've seen duplicate profiles on their site though. If you're worried about dating scams then it may be worthwhile investigating A Foreign Affair's range of romance tours. Alternatively it's possible to pay a fee and meet ladies in their Eastern European, Latin American or Asian offices. At least then you know that the lady you're meeting does actually exist. You'll also avoid getting mislead by A Foreign Affair's very flattering studio photos of the ladies.
Many men have reported that it's cheaper to contact A Foreign Affair's ladies through the Foreign Ladies dating site rather than use their other websites.
A Foreign Affair scams aren't as widespread as they are with other Russian dating sites. However, A Foreign Affair's services are very expensive compared to well regarded sites like RussianEuro or Elena's Models.
