There's a Difference Between Being Selective and Being Unrealistic

3. February 2012 by Christy 0 Comments

When it comes to dating, many singles are rather choosy. This is especially true on Russian dating websites. While there’s nothing wrong with being selective, there’s a difference between being choosy and being unrealistic. Here’s how unrealistic expectations can thwart your search for a Russian love match.


The men and women on Russian bride sites are open minded and adventurous, but they’re also choosy. Some men join Russian Love Match because they feel the women in their own country aren’t suitable matches and that only Russian women can meet their needs. The women on RLM have a similar mentality, with many shying away from Russian men and looking for partners in the West.

While there are certainly cultural differences, Russian women are still just women and there’s no such thing as the perfect partner. Many men are disappointed after a few months of Russian dating because they’ve built expectations that no woman, Russian or otherwise, could possibly meet. If you want to find a bride, you must be realistic. This means realizing that Russian women aren’t mythic beauties (despite their fairy tale photos), but regular people with quirks, baggage, and flaws. Russian ladies must keep their expectations in check as well.

Knowing the difference between being choosy/refusing to settle and being unrealistic will greatly help you in your quest for a Russian bride. Good luck!
