Hello everyone, I am hoping to find a FSUW to marry. I just made this decision 3 weeks ago, have joined Elena's Models site and Russian Cupid, and begun writing with a few women.

Thank you for this forum, it looks like it will be very helpful!

I am a rural Canadian, living not far from Toronto.

Elena's Models

Personally, I'd be cautious about that site now. It isn't what it was. I am not sure if it had a change of ownership.
I apologise.
And so he should.........

Thank you for the caution, I spent USD130 and have found the site to be pretty good so far.

Welcome to RUA

"Pretty good", is only good if you find a bride.

Curious what made you decide to seek a woman from the former Soviet Union as a wife?

Hi Avhdb

I stumbled on a website called Western Women Suck, and a lot of the information made sense to me. Really, I hope to find an amazingly beautiful woman who will love me. The FSU countries apparently have a surplus of women, and a dearth of good men, I  can afford to search there, and I see no reason to limit myself to my area in order to find happiness!

Not quite true. That is agency hype.

We assume you are similarly amazingly handsome and of a similar age to the women you intend to meet?  :evilgrin0002:

Hi Manny

Yes, without being too egotistical about it, I am pretty good looking, in fine physical shape, 45 years old and looking for someone no more than 15 years my junior.

Thank you for the vote of confidence.

Dr. Doom,

Do not get frustrated and some of us are even married to these foreign creatures called women. Manny, from Manchester is in fact is the owner of this website and has more or less seen it all.

So you know there is a Canucky page on RUA. I would study some of the Travel Reports and see what way will best fir the way you want to prosecute your search.

Ask questions and we will give our insights and opinions.

Good Luck with your search. Be careful and learn all you can. This is a hard endeavor and certainly not cheap. But if you meet the right woman a life changing experience. A lot of good information on this site but a lot of cynics as well.

Before you get started here's a word to the wise:

If you put the same effort and resources into finding a foreign wife (from anywhere) as you do to finding one in rural Canada then you will live a lonely life.

If you put the same effort into finding a local wife as you need to put into finding a foreign wife then you will certainly find a great wife from your peer group and country or locale.

A second, free, gratis point. You have told us what you are looking for. Here's the truth for you, before you spend any more money: when you look at a profile, set of pictures or even a set of communications between you, unless you can honestly know why that person (if it is a real person) would want to be with you and share your life then you will live a lonely life.

If you are not, right now, with the amazingly beautiful woman that you think you deserve then the chances of finding such a one over here - impossibly slim.
Shoot for realism and understand that there is NOT a dearth of good men, nor is there a treasure trove of beautiful women.

You are basically saying "don't bother". Seems odd on a website such as this. Thank you for taking the time, in any case.

Don't be discouraged I warned you about the cynics. I do not know their personal history nor do I care. There are some great people on this site and there are some bitter people. Take what you can from the good and learn from the cynics why they are bitter. I found a beautiful woman inside and out. Do I wish she had lived down the street of course but she doesn't. There is only one of her and she happens to live a long way away. I would not go back in time and change anything. Having said that this is not easy. If you are not prepared for the sacrifices and challenges you will face quit now before you break someone's heart. If not enjoy the life journey.

Andrew lives and dates in FSU. Myself, i am female from Eastern Europe. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but this is definitely true: there is NOT a dearth of good men.
I think that if you don't intend to relocate, better seek someone who is from a similar area in FSU and used to such way of life. Also, the closer to your own age, the better. It's often the case that urban girls feel bored in rural areas and get quite miserable too soon. I do know of one case though where super-successful Muscovite moved to woods somewhere in US and is ecstatically happy raising kids with her man there. It depends on you personally and your luck. I wish you all the best in your search.

Andrewfi is telling you the nearest thing to reality.  If your searching for a cat walk model or some beauty queen forget it cos the chances of you succeeding are about 0.01%.

Your best option is just search for a normal women and forget about the prince charming searching a princess. That finished about 20 years ago ;D

Nope, if I had wanted to say 'don't bother' then I'd have written it!

BUT, if after reading my words that is YOUR takeaway, given that you know your situation better than we do, then I think you might want to go with your intuition.

If your dissatisfaction with women from your peer group and community is informed by a 'hate western women' site then you probably have the wrong attitudes going in. The 'amazingly beautiful woman' and 'dearth of good men' memes with which you have been infected will help you not at all and the 'surplus of women' idea is simply incorrect information designed to mislead saps into spending lots of money on a hopeless dream.

Understand that 'hate western women' is almost always a shorthand or euphemism for 'hate women' or 'are afraid of women'. neither will endear you to an empowered woman strong and brave enough to be willing to consider moving around the world for the right man.

You have a choice to make; don't be a sap, understand that you won't meet and marry an amazingly beautiful woman (but you might meet a very lovely woman), understand that you will be competing for her hand against men who understand her and her language, who live next door and who do not require her to give up her entire life.

Or go with the 'hate western women' and live alone as quite a few, somewhat embittered, posters, present and past do.

Your choice!
