People may have some very different ideas about what constitutes Russian dating online. There are some internet sites which feature profiles from "Russian Brides." These are often women from impoverished areas in Eastern Europe and Russia who would like to marry men from other countries, mostly in order to get out of a bad situation. Some of them are simply beautiful women who are looking for a man to support them.

Reputable and Legitimate Russian Dating Online

While these sites fall within the bounds of legality, their approach is not condoned or supported by reputable internet dating sites. Russian dating in a mainstream sense is simply a way for people of Russian heritage anywhere in the world to meet others who share their culture and values. Especially for Russians who live in America or elsewhere in the world, it can be difficult to find someone with a similar background who is also in your age range, attractive to you, and a good potential mate. The Internet is a great way to broaden the area over which you can search.

There are several different religions embedded in Russian culture. Russian Jews often feel very strongly about marrying people who share their faith and traditions. If you don't live in an area with a high concentration of Russian Jews or go to a college or university where you find a community, however, you might find that the Internet is the best way for you to find someone who can relate to your unique history and traditions.

Russian Catholics also tend to be a relatively insular community. Chances are good that if you make a point to look for someone who shares both your ethnicity and faith online, you will have better success than almost anywhere else. If you speak Russian and English, you can look for a partner who is also bilingual so that you don't have to give up anything that is important to you, and you can even pass both Russian and American traditions on to your children if your relationship turns out to be a true love match.
