The nation of Russia has hundreds of millions of citizens and they do come in different looks, sizes and personalities. Russia is the largest country in the world and it’s so vast that it has almost a dozen time zones across its vast breadth. It’s so huge that it straddles two major continents.
Russian men and women have always been known as lookers in the mainstream media. You can easily recognize them from international sports as one of the better looking swimmers, gymnasts, figure skaters and of course, tennis players. They have such a distinct look that makes people wonder if other people from Russia don’t fall that far from the proverbial tree.
This is what drives the Russian dating service industry. Many websites have been established to help people with various backgrounds (Russian or otherwise) connect to people from the Russian motherland. Since there are literally truckloads of websites and networks, there really is a need to cut down this list into a manageable set of prospective sites. If you want to be part of a Russian dating service, here’s what you have to do to make sure that you’re signing up with the right one:
- Ask your friends which websites they are members in. A true testimonial and referral is unparalleled in this case. If a friend can vouch for the great interactivity and wide user base that a network has, that’s more or less an endorsement by someone you really trust. These networks are all about results and the result you’re looking for is to meet Russian men and women who are also interested in dating.
- Try to sign up to a couple of them and see how things go. Try to study how users can use the site to create their own profiles and meet other people via the website. This should dictate how you would use the site should you pursue your account in the future.
- Figure out which language is being used in the website. Understandably, since it is a Russian dating site, the Russian language as well as the Cyrillic alphabet may be used extensively in the conversations between the users. This may be a huge hurdle if you can’t speak the language yourself. While the site may be translated, most of the people in some dating sites may not be as good in English and this could just make you have a potentially frustrating experience due to a language barrier.
- Look at the level of activity. A dating site is only as good as the number of people actively seeking to make connections, friends and dates with other members. Having a membership in a site with low activity is just like being with yourself in an echo chamber with no one to really talk to or connect with.
At the end of the day, it’s quite simple – dating is dating regardless if you’re trying to hook up with a Russian or not. Just go ahead, take the plunge and see where it takes you.
