Important Changes to Russian Dating site -

Guys, there have been some important changes to one of the leading Russian dating sites -

If you're not familiar with, (or if you haven't used it yet), this is by far the most respected of all Russian dating sites due to its commitment against scam, but more importantly, the fact that so many people have been successful in meeting the love of their life using this service. If you're ready for a serious relationship with a Russian woman, could be the site for you.

What's changed?

- Previously, all new girls were in a separate section called the "Weekly Catalogue", and you could only contact these new ladies if you purchased additional membership to that catalogue. Thankfully, they have now got rid of this restriction, and all new ladies can be contacted with a regular membership.

- Previous limitations on how many ladies you can contact on each membership have also been removed, meaning you can now contact UNLIMITED girls on the one membership!

- The basic FREE membership allows you to set up your profile, view all ladies and build a favorites list. To contact the girls, you need to upgrade to a Gold or Platinum membership. With a Gold membership, you can send unlimited emails, unlimited expressions of interest and make contacts with unlimited girls. The cost of a Gold membership is only $99 for 3 months, which is very cheap considering that you do not have to pay anything for opening or sending letters. (To have your letters translated to Russian will cost extra though.)

Our Opinion of

The first thing many guys notice about is that there are fewer girls compared to the large dating sites such as Anastasia International. But when you look at this a little closer, you'll notice that the sites with more girls have FAR more girls in the 18-22 age bracket. It's a simple fact that many of these girls are just there to have a look and see if it is right for them or not. Many of them are not really ready for marriage, and certainly not ready for moving abroad.

At, not only can you be more confident that the girls are serious about meeting a man from abroad, but that they're also at an age where they're ready. This means you've got a much better chance of success if you find a girl there that you're interested in.

We have had very positive experiences with their services. The translation of letters is slow compared to Anastasia International, but there is a huge benefit of being able to exchange contact details freely in your letters. This is one of the most important aspects you should take notice of with any dating site you choose.

We have come across some sites with outrageous restrictions that are hidden in their extensive fine print. For instance, one site we know of requires you to be a member for at least 3 months and spend at least $1,000 before they will then give you the details of another company in Russia that will charge you additional fees to obtain IMBRA clearance and then finally the contact details of the girl you are corressponding with!!! This is sickening to all of us here who genuinely want to help people like you and me to succeed in Russian dating. Clearly, sites like that are only in this to make money and this restriction of obtaining contact information is not always clear, so make sure you read the fine print very carefully before joining any site.

Anyway... enough about that. Back to

We recommend

Setting up a free profile and then upgrading to a Gold membership once you've found a girl you're interested in. The Platinum membership option is quite expensive ($259 for 3 months) considering the additional benefits it gives, but perhaps this would suit some of you. Additionally, there is also a professional matching service for those of you who want a hands-on and serious approach to finding a partner.
