Elenas Models - Review

Hi there,

My name is Steve Galvin. I am the creator of Russian Language for Lovers. This is my personal review of Elenas Models.

I have used this service extensively myself, as well as Anastasia Date. I have also used a number of other sites / agencies which I would not recommend, for reasons I will explain below.


Elena's Models is the dating agency of Elena Petrova, the author of the excellent dating guide How to Find and Marry a Girl Like Me. This site has been around since the beginning of Russian-American dating and is very well respected and trusted.

Elenas Models has a well-earned reputation for being the safest and most trustworthy Russian dating agency. What they lack in website technology and number of women is more than made up for by their professionalism, trustworthiness and the fact they have successfully introduced many couples who are now happily married.

My personal opinion is that Elenas Models is best suited to guys who are looking to meet women who are seriously ready for marriage and a new life in a new country.


  • Create your own profile complete with photos.
  • Search and browse ladies' profiles including photos.
  • Email correspondence
  • Phone correspondence
  • Personal Introduction Service - For those looking for a hands-on personal service to help find a Russian woman for marriage.


  • Membership fee
  • Translation fee if you want your letter to be translated to Russian.

What I Like

  • Safe - Profiles on Elenas models identify those that have been verified and the website has an excellent reputation for their protection against scammers.
  • "Expression of Interest" - This service allows you to send an expression of interest to a woman to see if she is interested in starting correspondence with you. This saves everyone the time and hassle if there is simply no attraction or interest on her behalf.
  • Access to personal contact info - You can obtain personal contact information freely through your correspondence. Some other websites make it almost impossible for you to obtain personal contact details, and this is a major thing to look for when joining any dating site. If you cannot contact the other person you are simply wasting your time and money.
  • No bulk introduction letters - You will receive far fewer introduction letters from women on Elenas models than on other sites like Anastasia Date. This is partly due to there being less women here, but mainly because you won't receive a letter unless the girl is definitely interested in corresponding with you.
  • Genuine Marriage Potential - While there are fewer women on Elenas Models than many other sites, this site is well-known for having success with marriages, and indeed the women here are generally very serious in their desire for meeting and marrying a man from abroad.
  • Personal Introduction Service - One definite advantage of this agency is the fact that they also have a personal introduction service for those of you who want to get expert help. There is obviously a cost involved with this, but it is highly recommended and could save you a lot of time and money in the long run. If you want to avoid all the pitfalls of internet dating and get the professionals to do the work for you, this is a very good way to go.

What I Don't Like

  • Technology - The website is definitely outdated, and in need of freshening up. Online chat and video chat are not available here.
  • Speed of translation - This is slower than some other sites, and can be quite a few days between writing and receiving a reply. This is probably because it is a much smaller business than the huge Anastasia Date. My advice is to be patient, and once your initial written correspondence shows good signs, get her phone number so you can talk to her oer the phone in addition to your letters.
  • Fewer women than some other sites. However, this can also be seen as an advantage, since this site is definitely suitable for those of you looking to find a woman for marriage.

My Best Recommendations for Elenas Models

As mentioned above, my personal opinion is that Elenas Models is best suited to guys who are looking to meet women who are seriously ready for marriage and a new life in a new country.

Set up a free profile first and get to know your way around the site. If you find women here that interest you, this is definitely a good place to correspond with them and the chances of progressing this to a real meeting and relationship are also very good.

Other key tips for using Elenas Models:

  • If your initial correspondence is progressing well, ask her for her personal contact info (phone number, etc). This will help you to progress your relationship, and you'll get a good idea if she's really interested in you or not.
  • Use the personal introduction service if you are serious about finding a Russian wife. This will help you avoid the annoying aspects of internet dating and by letting the professionals help you, you could save yourself a lot of time and money and end up finding a Russian woman much sooner.
