Russian Dating Frequently Asked Questions (Part 7)

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.

Avoiding Fake Profiles on Russian Dating Sites

If you're using a Russian dating site then one of the major hazards are fake profiles. These are set up for a number of different purposes. Fake profiles are commonly set up by African dating site scammers. They will steal the photos of a beautiful Russian girl from Facebook, Flickr or another dating site, then use them to set up a new profile. They then start contacting men and ask for money or start elaborate advance fee fraud scams.

Fake profiles plague many dating sites. Detecting them isn't always easy because the photos often look convincing. Facebook is a popular place for stealing photos because you can get convincing snapshots that show somebody with their friends and family. Avoid these fake profiles by insisting on seeing the Russian girl you're talking to on webcam. Make sure the webcam is live - some sessions are recorded and played back to you. Another tip is to read up on Russian culture and the language. Once you know stuff that only Russians would know then the African imposters will be pretty easy to spot. Finally for safety's sake avoid any Russian lady working in developing countries, especially Africa! Yes some Russian ladies may be working in West Africa, but on the whole this is just a superb cover story for scammers to come up with a reason for their computer having an African IP address.

Fake profiles may also exist on Russian letter writing dating sites. These sites tend to be free to join, and charge you each time you send or receive an email from a lady. It's difficult to prove this, but look on antiscam sites such as Jim's Lists and there's pretty compelling evidence that many Russian dating sites have fake profiles on them. It's apparent that some dating sites steal profiles from other dating sites. You'll also find profiles on sites long after the lady has actually got engaged or married to another man. Again it's essential to actually see the lady on webcam. If you get excuses about not having a webcam then end all contact with the lady. Another test is to get her email or postal address out of her. Again, if she declines this then think seriously about ditching her.
