While it may seem obvious, a gentleman should meet his special Russian woman before he even thinks of proposing marriage. More than a few romantically-inclined gentlemen fall in a love with a picture or convince themselves they are in love after a handful of emails or chat sessions, but the simple fact of the matter is that a couple cannot know for certain if they are compatible until they meet in person.
When a gentleman travels to Russia or the Ukraine to meet a lady for the first time, he should focus on getting to know her, not proposing marriage. Many men have traveled to the former Soviet Union, certain they were going to propose, only to discover that they shared no chemistry with a lady or that the two of them are completely incompatible. Needless to say, these men were extremely disappointed.
Two people cannot truly know one another unless they’ve met in person, and a man cannot establish a marriage-worthy relationship with a woman he’s never seen. Again, this may seem obvious, but some men, dazzled by the beauty of Russian women and idea of a Russian bride, neglect to remember these simple facts.
While it would be great if sites like RussianLoveMatch provided a fast track to fairy tales romances and marital bliss, this simply isn't possible. Members must be willing to put in the amount of work it requires to build a solid relationship and intercontinental relationships require a lot more work than those at home. Finding love on RussianLoveMatch certainly isn't impossible, but nor is it as easy and simple as some men would like to believe.
