Russian men and woman dating sities
If they could find a good partner in their own country, they would choose this option any day of the week!
The demographics and culture are hard to change; I am sure it will change with time, but this was the reason why I decided, after many years of trying to get married in Russia to a good man, to look for a relationship elsewhere.
Russian brides get married to have a happy family for themselves, because this is their highest value: a Russian woman needs her own family, a husband and a child/children, to feel happy.
Cultural values are deeply ingrained in any person; most of us have no idea of those values or never spelled them out.
Russians have mobile phones, international fast food chains and Mc Donald's, Internet, IPAD's and latest cars (Moscow has the highest number of Mercedes and BMW's of all world's cities, including Germany - and Moscow has more dollar billionaires than New York! Yes, Russians live mostly in small apartments as compared to most western countries where people live in small houses in suburbia, but look at Manhattan in NY, this is very similar. So, living conditions whilst yes, there is some difference, it's not like Uganda or Vietnam vs. I can tell you living conditions and better life were NOT the reasons why I started to look for a husband abroad.
I didn't want to "leave Russia"; this wasn't the goal.
This was in 1997 and having placed my profile on several websites of Russian dating agencies introducing Russian women to foreign men, I quickly found a man I totally fell in love with and got married in 1998 (I could not get married in Russia for 8 years although it was my dream to get married and have kids since I was a little girl - this is the dream of most Russian women and girls, to get married and have a happy family - NOT to be rich and have a great career, this is very seldom what Russian women dream about.)Now, I left Russia in 1998 and I thought things could have changed there a lot since that time.
