I created this website in 1999 to provide western people insight to the recent phenomenon of "Russian brides" from the Russian woman's point of view. (It's my picture at the top left corner.) I am a Russian woman who 10 years ago married a western man. You can ring the office and chat to me to confirm that, or if you are in the area, drop by and say, "Hello". Single women can’t even sign up for the site; they’ve got to go through a completely different application process to confirm they do live in Russia, and also have their profiles and emails monitored to make sure the ladies aren’t trying to circumvent the system or scam the paying male members.
Still, the site is inviting, and really easy to maneuver around.
Everything you could possibly want (and more) is listed along the left side of each page, including information about Romance Tours (traveling to foreign countries to potentially meet a mate), Virtual Gifts, ‘Video Dates’, and more.
I want to tell you that your site is the first one that I have seen that actually tells it like it is.
It's very refreshing after reading all of the propaganda from many of the other agencies.
I've traveled through Russia several times, and have learned many of the truths you list on your site first hand.
