The fact that Russian, Ukrainian or Eastern European women choose to date abroad does not necessarily mean that they are looking for a foreign man to get away from their country; after all these women are also in search for love and a stable relationship as you are. These Russian women are seeking a loving man and a home where they can find comprehension, respect and a balanced relationship. If they were really desperate to get out of their country, they would not put down their particular requirements for a specific kind of man, they would take anyone and leave!
What Russian women are really looking for are well-suited partners, who can also share their ideas on life, for this is not possible in Russia. You will rarely catch a Russian woman dating you because you are just another man with a foreign passport, they need respect and are women with a dignity, they like being courted and appreciated for whom they really are, alike other western women.
If you really want to win over a Russian woman you will have to do so by establishing a genuine relationship, based on trust, and only then will she be prepared to accept an invitation to see you in your country. After all Russian women have their securities even in such a country as Russia; they have a family who cares for them; leaving this environment can also be a difficult choice.
A big mistake many people make is that they think Russian women are less intelligent or cultured than western ones. It is in fact quite the opposite, for the level of education in Russia is very high as opposed to the western one, they have an enormous cultural history and a high general educational knowledge. Just think that when you communicate online, it is English you are using not Russian; it is the Russian women that is speaking your language, not you hers!
An important scam to look out for is the Internet criminal ruse; these are criminals that contact unsuspecting men through large dating sites using fake identities and ask for money to buy visas and tickets. It is nearly impossible to get a visa in the first place, so before you go further contact the Embassy of the country and check if the person has applied for a visa and whether it has been granted; you will find that most times it had never been applied for.
The larger dating sites are best avoided if you are looking to date a Russian woman, they should only be used for local dating. It is extremely easy to join such sites, so anyone can register; this makes it easier for scammers to play at their game. As a result of this, many larger dating sites do not even accept Russian women to join, but this does not exclude the scammers who register directly from the US and can go ahead freely with their fraud.
So if you are looking for a genuine date with a Russian woman that may lead to a serious relationship with marriage use those dating site which specialize in introductions between western men and Russian women; these sites ask you for a lot of information and a check is made to verify the authenticity of the facts you state. All the information on these sites is screened and double-checked; at times you may even contact your date directly through her e-mail address or phone number. This will help you feel secure of the Russian womens sentiments towards you and from then on you may build a sound and loving relationship, which, who knows may even lead to marriage!
