Helpful Hints for Handling Haters

28. October 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

Some people just don't understand Russian dating and will do whatever they can to steer you away from sites like RussianLoveMatch. If well-meaning (and not-so-well-meaning) friends and family are giving you a hard time, here are a few helpful tips on how to handle them.


What's Their Reason?

If someone gives you a hard time about looking for love abroad try to learn why the person is so against Russian dating. Nine times out of ten you’ll hear a classic stereotype or myth: Russian women are gold-diggers, they only want a green card, the women on international dating sites aren’t real, they’re prostitutes, they’re poor and miserable and shame on you for taking advantage of them.


Debunk Russian Dating Myths

The easiest way to soothe a friend or family member’s troubled mind is to debunk inaccurate stereotypes. Explain that life in Russia isn’t as bleak as everyone imagines and that it takes much more than a man's bank account to convince a Russian woman to leave her friends, family, and entire culture behind. If your friends are worried that you’re talking to a Boris rather than a Natasha, discuss RussianLoveMatch’s extensive video validation and live video streaming features. If an acquaintance suggests you’re some sort of creepy loser for taking advantage of poor, miserable women, first try to control your anger, and then explain that the women in Russia lead happy, active lives and that no one is forcing them to use the site. If you explain things calmly and rationally, other people are much more likely to take you seriously.


You don't owe anyone an explanation about your personal life, but it's useful to have convincing arguments to educate Russian dating haters. Debunking myths and calmly explaining your position can do a lot of good and when it comes to handling haters.
