Fred

With all the posts/ topics you are creating, and the large amount of free time you appear to have on your hands to write and respond to these, draws me to only one conclusion  :coffeeread:

Your not having much  or little success at this endeavour are you?  tiphat

Maybe you should seek a change in direction.  :nod:

Fred, why don't you ask Craigslist admins your question. Nobody here is qualified to answer your question.

What, I'm not allowed to blow off steam? How's this any different to complaining about Elena's redesign and how slow the site seems to be running?

the large amount of free time you appear to have on your hands to write and respond

Your (sic) not having much or little success at this endeavour are you?

Oh, please. I'm an affluent Westerner living in a country where the GDP per capita is less than $10,000 US. Given my bank account, social position and pension plan, I'm considered more than eligible by local standards.

Go ahead: ask the obvious question.

Well, if they're desperate to escape the grinding poverty of their everyday existence, they'll use every means at their disposal

Seeking a desperate women is a bad idea. Desperate women tend to act
desperately. Why are you asking all these ridiculous questions? have you
done any research or reading here at all?

What is your goal here?

STOP, and answer that question. What is your goal here at this site?


FSUW are not for entry level daters. FSUW don't do vague FSUW like a man of action so be a man of action  If you find a promising girl, get your butt on a plane. There are a hundred ways to be successful and a thousand ways to f#ck it up

Fred if you read the thread about the redesign of the EM website you'll see that a number of RUA members have said that they've communicated their frustrations with the EM website to the owners of EM. Some RUA members in the IT field have even sent in suggestions on how to improve the site.

Perhaps you could use your frustrations with Craigslist as a class assignment for your students?

From my understanding of FSUW you should have no problems finding a wife/lover/g/f whatever you're looking for. AFA and several others have tours to the FSU. RUA member Ed specializes in one on one custom matchmaking perhaps he can assist you. Haven't seen him posting lately, means he's probably working but I'm sure he'll show up soon. Perhaps someone can PM his email to you? If you're looking for knowledgeable assistance in your hunt for a FSUW Ed would probably be your best bet.

Shopping on craigslist, so last week   :)  I am waiting for the FSUW market to hit ebay, then we can all sell the old and bring on the 2 twenty somethings.  Not to long after that, Walmart will see the profitability of the market and really bring down the prices!

Likely your answer is as simple as cultural/social preferences and differences

The FSU populations is most certainly centralized more so than the other countries you mentioned,and certainly the percent of population with internet access is greater.

You seem to be expecting the general /FSUw population to not only be desperate,(which they are not)but also for them to  prefer some western website you think they would.

Try to imagine a developed country with their own language websites,,
like VK compared to the popularity of facebook. there..
or mamba compared to match. .etc
I believe Russian firms to be heavily invested in several large ,what you consider western websites.

I'm not sure there is a similar to craigslist russian site.if not its because there is no demand for it, if there one ,then like other websites have shown,, the vast majority of the population would utilize it ,not an english  based one.

I'd avoid the small percent of population truly desperate,as there are plenty of women that are not so desperate ,yet would consider relocation.They may not actively seek,,so are perhaps harder to contact,that does not mean there are not more of them.

Out of curiosity, I went to Craigslist, then to CL International, then Russia, and saw an option Moscow. Then I selected Personals. Here is what came out:

Here is one profile of an American seeking a woman. Looks like you are not the first who came on this thought  :nod:

Looks like the Craigslist is not that bloody ;)

You can search by Women seeking men, here is someone:

Women are like Wi-Fi: she sees all available devices, but connects to the strongest one.
