Since 2015, we work to provide our site visitors with the useful and most importantly, unbiased information on:
- The situation in the online dating market
- The latest trends and changes in the online dating industry
- Top websites to find a partner, whether a girlfriend or a wife
- National characteristics of ladies from most popular mail order bride countries
- Dating cultures in particular regions and countries
RussBrides is aimed at giving a reader all the information, tips, and recommendations they may need to understand how international online dating actually works and meet someone special fast and without spending a fortune.
Why did we create this project? We believe in certain things, and we made them our main principles and goals. Here they are.
Finding sites where singles really can find love
If you take a look at the statistics, you’ll see that the online dating industry in all countries (no exception!) is growing year by year and is expected to grow further. No wonder new platforms are launched regularly, and though it was supposed to be the good news, it actually isn’t. The thing is, the online dating industry seems very promising and beneficial not only to the trusted companies but also to scammers, and our goal is to find legit and trustworthy sites and tell our readers about them.
Creating top content for our site visitors
On RussBrides.net, you’ll find different types of articles, in particular, reviews and guides and we work hard to make them as useful, clear, and comprehensive as possible. It may seem that there is nothing complicated about online dating sites, but it’s not exactly true. A user must evaluate dozens of criteria and facts about the site, and we, in turn, try to make complex things simpler by providing site visitors with only the most important information and the conclusions we drew based on our own experience and trusted data from reliable sources. The same, of course, goes for the guides on how to meet and date women from different regions and countries.
Protecting a user from scams
The online dating world is actually not the safest place, especially considering the statistics, according to which Americans lose over $500 million yearly becoming the victims of dating scams. The main mistake most people make is that they think that anything like that will never happen to them, and our goal is to prove to them this can happen to anyone, and most importantly, provide them with the information on common fraud methods and ways to protect yourself when dating online.
What we offer
We offer various online dating content. In particular, on our website, you will find the following:
- Dating site reviews. We carefully choose the websites that in theory may meet the expectations of a user who wants to meet someone special in another country. Our experts don’t just describe the platforms based on someone else’s impression or information available to all unregistered users on the web. Instead, we join the community, test the site for at least a month, use all the standard and premium features, and then share our impressions and conclusions in our in-depth dating site reviews.
- Guides on dating women from different countries. We believe that the only way to meet the right person in another country is to learn as much as possible about local women, their values, traditions, and dating culture. However, a user who decides to do such a research is likely to spend weeks looking for the information and reading numerous research articles and blogs. We do it and even more for you. Not only do we collect the information, but also get in touch with mail order brides from particular countries, for example, Russia, as well as with the men who married Russian brides. That allows us to get the full picture and share the most important points with our site visitors.
- Expert guides and blog posts. Sometimes, knowing the places where you can find a foreign match as well as the facts about women you can meet there is not enough. We also have a blog and our best experts write articles aimed at helping solve other kinds of problems, for example, the issues with getting a K-1 visa for a foreign bride.
How we write reviews
As we’ve noted previously, we don’t just pick the site and do some background research. We carefully analyze dating services. So here’s how we work on our reviews:
- Finding new interesting sites and old platforms we haven’t tested yet. We monitor the market all the time to find the most promising new sites and some great old platforms that we missed.
- Collecting some basic information about the site. Before we join the platform, we always do some basic research on it, paying special attention to the feedback of the users. After all, if it’s a bad site, not just a platform with its pros and cons, we don’t see any point in reviewing it anyway.
- Joining the community. We create an account right after we get all the background information, and follow all the instructions and recommendations, but sometimes we also test the low-effort profiles to find out if there are bots that will send messages even to a new member without any photos and details.
- Testing the service. Then our experts spend around a month on the site chatting with ladies and testing all or almost all the features that the site has.
- Drawing conclusions. Only after that we draw conclusions and write reviews that will describe all the positive and negative sides of using this very website.
All this helps us understand if we can recommend this website or not. But what about the criteria that our team usually relies on?
Criteria that a dating site must meet
When reviewing the websites, we always consider the following:
- The number of members and visitors. If the site is European, Asian, or Latin, it must have many users in these regions. We always ensure that’s not just marketing.
- Profile quality. That is a very important point. If profiles aren’t moderated and users don’t provide that many details, the site will hardly work for people looking for serious relationships and marriage. We also check random photos on Google to make sure that they are not stolen or just stock pictures.
- Costs. Prices may be higher or lower, but they always must be reasonable. We also try to spot hidden costs as well as distinguish useful premium features from the features you shouldn’t pay for.
- Sets of features. There are different sites on the market, but every good company tries to offer something special to a user. We test all the services (except for gift delivery and real meeting requests),share our experience, and sometimes give recommendations to our site visitors who are going to use the site. After all, there are always more or less useful tools, and we learn about them by trial and error by spending some credits, so our site visitors don’t have to do it.
- Support. Professional support service is a serious advantage for any website providing any kind of services, and online dating sites are not an exception. We always reach support to make sure they can help a user solve their problem as soon as possible.
All this information helps us understand if the site is trustworthy or not and rank it along with other online dating platforms that also connect men with single women or mail order brides from a particular country or region.
