Free online dating personals matchmaking websites
I was sitting at home, bored and decided to send a letter to a competition that the magazine was launching.
"Cosmo" was looking for somebody to feature in their article about Russian brides.
When speaking about cross culture marriages, there is an interesting trend: a relationship between a man from the USA and a woman from Australia is an "international relationship", yet a relationship between the same man and a woman from Russia is a "mail order brides" thing.
My site Russian Brides Cyber Guide at the top of many search engines for the term "Russian brides", and as a result I often receive requests for interviews from newspapers and magazines all over the world; USA, Great Britain, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Finland, Hungary, Australia, South Africa, Russia - and the list goes on.
(This is not a joke; this question was discussed in Russian parliament.) Most men thinking about "mail order brides" services are not even aware that they will not receive their bride delivered to their postal box (or their door) on request and will have to spend time, money and effort to convince a "bride" that he is a worthy candidate for her to consider.
Russian women have a much better education than the brides from Asia and Latin America.
(The actual article had the heading "South Africa's Mail Order Romances" which sounded a bit better, and the article itself finished with the words "Welcome! The history behind the term "mail order brides" goes as far back as the time of the first American settlers.
The settlers, most of whom were men, could not find suitable women to marry and had to write letters to Europe asking women to become their wives.
My letter was like a God sent, and they phoned me asking for an interview.
This was my first interview with the Media, and I was pretty naive at the time.
Some men still believe they can point their finger at any woman and she must marry him because he paid for her address! Those women do not think you are doing them a favor by writing to them.
