You may well be asking why, if women in Russia are so beautiful, are so many of them registering with social media, dating sites and marriage agencies that specialize in finding them husbands from overseas? Well, there are four main answers to this question.
Firstly, when it comes to single ladies Russia has more than its fair share. In fact, Russian and Ukrainian women far outnumber the male population in their home countries. As there are so few Russian men available, single women in Russia often turn to online dating to find a partner from abroad.
Secondly, there is a lack of suitable men in Russia. Russian single ladies look for a man who is confident and strong, and who is a good match for their own ambition and high level of education. With men in Russia tending to be lazy and passive, and with alcohol being responsible for 52% of deaths among Russian men aged between 15 and 54, it’s no wonder that the average Russian single woman is more interested in Western men in America or Europe who are more successful, responsible and decisive.
Thirdly, as the average life expectancy for a man in Russia is very low at just 59, this means that many women become widows at a young age.
Fourthly, Russian brides want a secure future, not only for themselves, but also for their children. They want their family to be raised in a safe country that offers a high quality of life.
