Elenasmodels is a shadow of it's former self, IMHO and I'd recommend fdating / dmnotify - my info is five years old

I would suggest to use FREE PERSONALS    http://freepersonals.ru/
which is completely free and get some experience.

1) Register and create a profile But..... do not post any photo for 1-2 weeks because there are plenty of scammers around and your box will be full......

2) after 2 weeks when your box is almost empty... then post a photo....... and wait till somebody who knows how to read English write to you.

3) If you find somebody who take your fancy.... ask for her telephone numbers..... Home and Mobile and also if she has skype or any other Messenger.

If she gives you the telephone numbers.... test them and see what are her reactions or if she is on Skype... then so much better.

If none of the above works......then move on to the next one.

At the end of the day it's FREE. I did and met 5-6 and straight away I knew from my skype contact... if she was real or not!

Ignore all requests for money.

Have fun and don't be shy to post their letters here for our inspection . There are many experienced people around to advise you!

hi,
What is the benefit with free personals as if you want to meet a future wife why does a free website have an advantage?

Ukraindate any good?

The advice of Wiz is rule #1

If you insist on spending money to communicate with women than perhaps this site is better. > https://www.cuteonly.com/girls/ <

It doesn't, but many blokes like to imagine they will do this for free. Many in this endeavour are total cheapskates. They want free this, free that, 5 connections for the cheapest flights, staying in hostels, etc. Few of those men are married.

Genuine women on foreign facing paid dating sites are already self-selected to be looking for foreign men. Half your work is done already.
I apologise.
And so he should.........

I met my wife on this site https://russian-ukrainian-women.com/ . It’s a paysite but hey..it worked for me and my wife is crazy in love with me..I call her my little shadow..what a sweetheart. Anyways... I liked the fact that there was not just the typical supermodel Ukrainian or Russian women photos that the majority of sites portray when Ukraine or Russia isn’t just full of beauties because there’s plenty of average to normal girls there as well. There’s plenty of average to decent girls on this site and little vixens. Don’t get me wrong because I ended up with a little rocket and my top 10 looked like something out of a Victoria’s Secret catalog but I found this site to be worth the value. I would never go to a free site because it looks cheap and FSU women can’t stand men like that. I’m not saying be a walking atm machine but use common sense and don’t be a penny pincher. The main success for me was staying away from cities you know that are going to be oversaturated. Kiev, Odessa, Lviv, look further east like Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Poltava, etc.. good luck.

I think my statement in the first 2 lines it's very clear, especially for people who have no experience and of course I don't know the new poster or if he has any experience. Nothing is wrong for some free practice on a dating site! A newbie could buy a book and learn about Russian women, too.

"I would suggest to use FREE PERSONALS    http://freepersonals.ru/ ... which is completely free and get some experience."


Personally I have never tried to stay in a 5* hotel to show off and impress a woman, because a 3* BB it's good enough and comfortable and I have never stayed in a youth hostel. Due to my travel experience, most of the time, I am able to book cheap flights on the most direct flights and yes I took advantage of the EU directive and brought my wife for FREE in the UK.

I am not loaded like some ... and I saw no reason paying her Majesty's Government £900 + for an entrance visa to UK. After our wedding I used that money for a nice holiday in Greece. BTW I did not meet my wife on a Free Dating site...... but on one who permitted the first letter for Free and my wife was very clever and we established direct connection. Then I know web design.... and 10 years next month, we are still together  :)

Genuine women on foreign facing paid dating sites are already self-selected to be looking for foreign men. Half your work is done already.

Not necessarily! This endeavour it's not a short trip to the pub!

Hi,

I have been married to a russian women for 6 years  before being divorced . She was from Moscow and I have been to Russia before so I am not a newbie and yes FSU women can be difficult as well as any women can.

My issue is that I wanted a family and my late 40's.

How much Russian did you learn? If a fair bit than that might be a big advantage.

Bear in mind I sense from the time of your first trip to today the landscape has changed in the former Soviet Union with regards to foreigners dating there.

Wiz,

andrew99 is asking for advice on dating sites - not the letters he might receive.

It is typical of your nosiness that you'd want to 'help' by reading any letter and then try to trace the writer ....

well i have no intention in just fronting up to moscow  and going to bars/nightclubs in trying to find a woman.

Plenty of people I have known have been russia in last 6 years .

it isnt just fun dating but the life you offer at home as well their willingness to relocate and married is more the factor IMHO
