Getting to Know a Russian Woman Online: What Not to Do

3. December 2009 by Christy 0 Comments

The "getting to know you" phase is important in any relationship, but this is especially true when it comes to online dating. Below are a few common mistakes men make when attempting learn more about a Russian woman and how you can avoid the same errors.


Short and simple is best

Try to keep your first few emails short and simple. Long messages can overwhelm the ladies, especially those who are not fluent in English (i.e. most of them). A good introductory email will include some basic information about you and perhaps one or two questions for the lady to answer.  Avoid sending a list of essay-style questions. This can overwhelm even a native speaker. You do not need to know her life story, nor does she need to know yours. Take your time and enjoy getting to know a lady.


No pressure

The vast majority of Russian and Ukrainian women do not have access to a home computer so they cannot reply to emails as quickly as the gentlemen might like. If you have sent an introductory email to a Russian lady, be patient. Don’t set a timeframe for a response. Don’t demand to know why a lady hasn’t responded to a particular email. And certainly don’t accuse her of being a scammer if she cannot or will not reply. Remember, the women on RussianLoveMatch are free to do as they wish and are not paid or required to reply to every email they receive. If you pressure a lady to respond you risk being seen as desperate, obnoxious, or both. 


Keep it clean

As we’ve said many times before, emails of a sexual nature are simply not appropriate (especially in the introductory phase of a relationship). Ladies who receive sexual messages are likely to think the man who sent them is only interested in sex. As the majority of the women on RussianLoveMatch are seriously seeking a long-term relationship, they are unlikely to be excited or impressed by such advances. Keep your emails clean and respectful and you’ll likely get much better results.


Every woman is different, but few Russian ladies will respond well to inappropriate or demanding emails. They are also likely to be overwhelmed by long, detailed messages. Gentlemen who are polite and respectful and those who consider the needs of Russian women tend to fare better on RussianLoveMatch than those who do not. Keep this in mind when you are courting a new lady.
