Trench, you are correct that many guys in the early years thought it would be easier. Keep in mind that email/internet was just getting started back then so many felt that they had to do the visa fairly quickly, mostly at the social or on a 2nd trip. The internet just getting started also meant that the men and women didn't get much news or information in general about outside of their countries.
  I watch this on Youtube. Not sure if this is the trend for younger guys or not. But this site is more about guys coming over to approach women on the street or in bars for fun. This guy said in a few videos that the marriage pursuit and using agencies/socials is old hat primarily for older men.

I first noticed a change at a 2001 St Pete social where the women were becoming more particular. Many came for something to do and have guys take them out for dinner. They were still interested in a foreign man but not so much with the average guy. Soon after that, socials stopped in St Pete and Moscow due to lack of interest from women. 
It's not surprising that with improved socio-economic conditions that women took less interest in foreign men. Working professionals in Moscow have a high standard of living these days.

The Internet has also made the world a much smaller place. There is less mystique and mystery about foreigners which was and still can be an advantage when dating.

Makes it easier for the locals to find each other as well.  "Social skills" has a new meaning nowadays with a huge number of relationships that start on Facebook, Odnoklassniki etc.
