Many men are skeptical of the messages they receive from the ladies of Russian Love Match, specifically the introduction messages. Why, gentlemen ask, are the ladies' introduction letters so vague and formulaic?
Truth is, introduction letters are kind of like the cover letters people include with job applications. Yes, it’s better to write a customized letter for each and every contact, but doing so is difficult and time consuming. Therefore, many Russian women write generic letters instead. Though some men think form letters mean Russian women aren’t serious about finding a match or that they’re paid to write as many letters as possible, generic notes actually mean the ladies are trying to save time and be as efficient about their search as possible.
Few people will argue with the assertion that dating is a numbers game. The more people one meets, the better his or her chances of finding a match. One way the ladies attempt to find a special gentleman is to send an introduction email to many men in hopes of attracting the attention of someone interesting. As most ladies don’t have time to type an individual letter to dozens of men, they instead send a general letter and await replies. Once men respond, the ladies will begin writing more personalized emails and asking specific questions.
When it comes to introduction letters, Russian women, like the Western men who pursue them, send short, general messages because it saves time and is more efficient. Though it's easy to confuse vague introduction letters with scam letters, they are not one and the same.
