The Truth Behind Global Dating

3. December 2009 by Administrator 0 Comments

Many members of ask our online hostesses,  why would a beautiful Russian lady want to seek a companion half way around the world? 

No One Answer

There is no one big answer.  Ask a group of Russian ladies why they are dating globally and the responses are as varied as the ladies. Some are disillusioned with men in their country.  Some see Western men as more caring than those in their hometown. Since there is a shortage of men in Russia- 20 million Russian men died in World War II- women look to men in other countries for companionship. Some are into global dating just for the fun and excitement of it.  Some look upon web dating as a way to find their true love and better life.


Living in the West is Good

Though, right now, it may not seem like it, life in the West is much better than in the republics of the former Soviet Union. For many Russian ladies life is hard. They view the West, especially the United States, as a land flowing with milk and honey.

A recent survey from the Russian insurance company RosGosStrakh found that the majority of Muscovites think that 62,000 roubles per month would give them a decent life in Russia’s capital.  At current exchange rates, that is equal to $2,156 per month or $25,474 per year-way below the average gross annual salaries in the United States of $39,527 or the United Kingdom salary of 31,300 GBP per year.  But the real average salary for a Moscow worker is 31,600 roubles per month. Furthermore, salaries in Moscow are 1.75 higher than the national average.


Are they real or just after my money?

Honestly, the answer is NO!  Russian and Ukrainian ladies were brought up in a culture where material goods are not as important as they are in the West. They value education, the arts, music, and deep discussions on literature and life. But above all else, Russian and Ukrainian women put family first. American men, more than Russian men, want to find a woman who shares their love of family values. Ladies see that Western men are more capable of providing a stable life for them, thus allowing them to rear a family in their traditional role. Further, we don’t pay our ladies to be on our site.

What are you looking for?

Consider your reasons for international dating. Perhaps, you are tired of dating women in your hometown. Perhaps a friend told you about and you thought you would give it a try. Maybe after all these years you thought, why not give it a shot? Are you doing it just for fun? Just to look at the pictures of beautiful Russian women?


For whatever reason you want to be a part of the global dating trend, remember the ladies are here because they want to be. As a member, you are paying for the service, the opportunity to connect with the ladies. Romance is not a guarantee.  Remember, even though they are on the other side of the planet, you still have to win the heart of one of the many ladies here on
