That's already the second time for today that I read about dmnotify... Might worth checking, I guess  :D


What about the the smaller branches of fdating - Russian-dating.com and russian-personals.com (ex free -personals.ru, IIRC?)


...and am I right, what once was Russian Euro, is now being called Russian cupid?  :rolleyes:

If I was an older Russian woman, I would forget about the dating sites and join western Facebook dating groups.

I was a member of several over 35 groups and woman have the considerable advantage. An attractive woman would post a picture and within and hour 100 men would be competing for  her attention. A nice Russian woman would have an obvious  edge over the local women.

The advantage of the FB groups is most men will want to add you as a friend, so you can get a good idea about the ones you like and their life from their personal page.

They suck for men. You get lost in all the noise .... I never tried to contact any women on there.....  so many guys publically embarrassing themselves to get a woman’s attention, but some of my female friends have met some great guys in these groups, which is why I made the suggestion.

plenty of people try the low effort picking up the rotting fruit on the ground approach vrs working hard and climbing the tree to get the sweetest fruit
for most people it’s all they ever do, just don’t blame the world when the rotten fruit makes you sick

malen'kaya mysh has already unsuccessfully tried social media to snag a meal ticket
and is always aware each morning when she awakes that there’s a little more belyy pesok
at the bottom of the hour-glass than there was yesterday....

a 50 yr old Russian woman can NOT date a 50 yr old Westerner
the 50 yr Westerner is trying to obtain a 30 yr old RW and has no interest in some staroushka
the evidence of that is all over this board

get real...
ask malen'kaya mysh how many came to visit her from social media
and the quality of such (potential) visitors

smart women come HERE, know EXACTLY the kind of man they want
and WHERE this kind of man IS
and will put herself in the middle of this location
smart women....
smart women also know that to catch a fish you need a hook and some bait
staroushka bait?   nyet spossiba....

find another approach, I hear ludie in Moscow are real-l-l-l-ly smart!
so I’m sure you’ll figure it out before the hour glass is empty
cuz if you don't you're gonna die poor and lonely in Moskva...
but look on the bright side!
based on the average life expectancy for a woman in Moskva
that's only gonna be for about 20 more years
c'mon you can handle that much more time in Moscow
after 50 yr another 20 should be no big deal...

hey olchik!
here's your sardonic fortune cookie
it says


Do you want to leave Moskva?
Well, you should've had that idea 20 year ago!

Looks like an improvement over the 1990's when the 50 yr old
Westerner dated the 20 year old nova-rushka.

yes, back then I was 40 had no problem at all making contact with college undergrads in kyiv
absolutely easiest girls in the world to pick up
they had just enough exposure to the outside world through TV media
to have developed an exaggerated sense of its prosperity and luxury
and that fueled their curiosity
there weren't a lot of cultural representatives in Kyiv back then
so early comers like me were considered exotic specimens of manhood
that needed to be investigated thoroughly...
to women like them, men aged 40 are at their "peak"
provided they are "successful" and affluent
if you are also tall and blond hair blue eyes and have many other talents
then you'll get all the "you know what" you could ever want in Kyiv without almost no effort...

so bottom line...
if there's a Russian problem in your neigh-bor-hood
who ya gonna call?

it better be Russ Busters!!!

While I agree with the invasion of privacy re social media sites, they can
be used as a tool/force multiplier.

You can set up an email and page(s) for specifically looking for an FSUW.


In the olden days I had over 1100 FSUW friends on MySpace and I met
Angel Eyes on a social media site.

Dear Beel,

I fear you have forgotten what a friend is ...these are / were virtual fwends ...

Friends are people you meet  in life and there is a mutual respect and trust and an assumption that you have shared experiences together.

Your myspace page ( that I remember ) was pretty general and not an explicit advert for a wife...

I used a social media site to find SC...but she wasn't seeking a partner via the SM site... she just hadn't logged in to the dating sites for too long and she might have found someone or been bored



As awareness grew, she got some creepy 'friendship' offers and made her profiles private.

Lots of ladies will never see  a SM site designed for attracting a mate  for the very reason of privacy 

It MIGHT work for a younger woman, but I suggest to attract women for whom SM is less relevant makes it a less likely method.

Back in the olden days when MySpace was hot I started a page for
a different forum that is similar to this one. MySpace had a search
feature so, I would select various FSU countries and ask the single
women to be friends with the page.

I invited them to join the forum and say hello. I ended up meeting
some of the women in person and I stopped trying to get additional
women to join after the number got to 1100. I met the women in
Georgia from doing that and many from all over the FSU came to
chat.

I had a good time, but it took a lot of my time so I stopped.

Yes, they were friends of the page

However, I did meet several girls in real life from social media pages
and I married one of them.

BTW,

I have heard nothing from the friend of my friend, suggesting he lost interest in the FSUW pursuit.  I gave him a summary of the different ideas suggested in this thread. 

Thanks everyone for helping!

Pure speculation on my part: Perhaps he realized the barrage of "I am lonely and can not find a good man" letters form young beauties was not the truth.

It's possible the first girl or few girls he wrote to didn't show interest. I know guys who are interested in girls and they don't put the effort into finding one or get turned off by a bad experience/date with one. A decent, financially secure guy should have a 100% chance in finding someone who'd want to spend their life with him. It takes time. It may take 20 dates, but it's going to happen if he is motivated to find someone.

This endeavor is NOT for everyone, it's not for most people.
The huge investments of time, money, patience, heat ache, and effort
is far too much for the majority of guys out there.

It's much easier to settle for a local gal. She's a little bit fat, a little bit
bitchy and whiney, she couldn't name two countries that border Russia,
she has a lovely dike haircut but you get a bottle of wine poured into her
and there's a very good chance you will get a romp out of it TONIGHT.

A Russian gal, is hotter, slimmer, with long hair, exquisite nails and can
name every country that borders Burkina Faso. She can work all day
and then come home and cook up a feast, then slip into an evening
gown and then entertain a dozen guests with intelligent conversation.

With the Russian gal however, you have to make a connection, then
get a passport and a visa, travel 10-20 hours to see her AND win her
heart. Then you have to continue pursuing her while the idiots at
USCIS move in slow motion in everything they do.

You have to leave your Russian gal in Russia too many times to contemplate
when every part of your body is aching to be with her. When you finally get
her into your country you have to be patient when she gets frustrated and
cheer her up when she suffers from melancholy.

Even years later when she is acclimated you have to smile when she knows
everything and suffer through cRaZy Russian remedies for anything that ails
you and her total disdain for the entire American medical profession.

I am barely scratching the surface in describing the efforts that marrying
an FSUW entails.
 
There are a lot of men who aren't cut out for this and there's no shame in
my opinion of them acknowledging their limitations.

I am laughing out loud at your post, Bill.

My husband asked his friend's wife, a native of the city, where the Russian Museum was when he was first in Leningrad.  Her response was "We have a Russian Museum?" 

Russian students' PISA scores are middling, and I've met a fair number of FSUW who didn't know where Canada was, so I highly doubt they could name the countries surrounding Burkina Faso. 

In the end, most men and women in a country reflect that particular country.  So, if AW are that slovenly and ignorant (and they aren't, I know that as I know some AW), so are their men.

I am laughing out loud at your post, Bill.

I'm glad that I tickled a funny bone.

While I may have slightly exaggerated the demerits of some Western Women.
You have to understand the last place I lived when I was single was in the oil
patch in Rural North Dakota. There wasn't a single unmarried woman available
that didn't have major, major flaws.

When I lived in the bay area, your argument would have been totally correct.
Living in Watford City North Dakota, I would be lucky to find a woman 5 years
older than myself, a high school dropout with missing teeth and a criminal record. 
She probably wouldn't be a good match for me. I could get in my car and drive
to Portland Oregon in about 24 hours or I could be standing at Angel Eyes door
in about the same amount of time.

My point that most men aren't cut out for this is totally true. Most men don't
have the tenacity or the patience to be successful and should be happy to
pursue the best local girl they can find. Most guys who do actually get on
a plane and fly to the FSU fail, then they quit.

There are many trials and tribulations and I'll bet most of the married guys
will attest to that.


In the end, most men and women in a country reflect that particular country.

Not true at all, there are people at every end of the spectrum in a population
as big as the FSU or the USA. There are people in the USA who are sharecroppers, 
who have never traveled 100 miles from their home. There are people in the USA
who speak 7 languages and have 4 Phd's. You don't marry the average population.
One unique individual marries another unique individual.

There are single women in the FSU from every walk of life, with every interest,
with every virtue and/or women with every fault or failing. A man has to be willing
to turn over lots of stones to find his gem.

That's my two kopecks,

Bill
