Does an Age Difference Matter?

19. January 2010 by Daniel 0 Comments

If you have spent any length of time browsing the profiles of our Russian ladies, you have certainly noticed that many of them are relatively young. Russian ladies in the age range of 18 to 22 are plenty on


Some gentlemen may find this intimidating. But a significant age difference is no reason to shy away from what could be some great international introductions.


Focus on Your Shared Interests

Naturally, there are going to be some differences between you and your Russian bride as a result of the age difference. Various cultural staples and items of interest to your generation, may not be shared by someone from her generation. And vice versa. But such things are trivial in determining the overall success of the relationship. What’s more important is that the two of you get to know each other well in order to find interests that you do share. If you are both fans of sports, talk about your favorite teams or maybe some sports that you play.


Why Would She Want an Older Man?

Russian women often specifically seek out older men for marriage. The reasons for this are varied, but in general the women seek a man who can provide a sense of stability and maturity while also demonstrating a readiness for commitment. This reflects the respect for tradition that many Russian women have, being that they seek gentlemen who are ready to provide for a family. Young Russian men typically do not show a desire to establish a family early in their lives, and therefore some women are less interested in them.


Forget Numbers

As you get to know a Russian woman, remember that what is most important is that you get to know her for who she is as an individual. In this way, you will see that age really is nothing more than a number. Different women have different maturity levels and just because a lady is a certain age does not mean that she will not be able to relate well to you.


A healthy relationship does not necessarily depends on the age of the partners. If you take a look at some of our testimonials, you will find many happy couples who were not dissuaded by differences in age. What's more important is that you share the same interests and values.
