On authentic dating sites, people are hesitant to contact someone.
It is the biggest problem of legitimate singles hangouts, how to make users to contact each other. This is why took off, just a swipe and it’s a contact.
PPL stands for “pay per letter”, the term coined by Elena Petrova, a former Russian “mail order bride” who moved abroad in late 1990s. Most likely, if the site promotes itself as “Hot (sexy) Russian brides” but female members you get messages from live .
But for now, all you need to remember is that if you are bombarded by chat requests and emails from pretty young beauties in lingerie when visiting pages of a Russian dating site, most likely you are at a pay-per-letter place. They start talking to you, quickly “develop feelings”, and then something happens. Or the person may simply ask to send her money (which is never a good idea in case of any online acquaintances).
Therefore, they will have some success stories with pictures of married couples. Even the bad websites know they need to cover their bases, in case they get caught red-handed.
Yes, Russia’s females, whose profiles you see on legitimate web pages, are not desperate “to get out of poverty”.
They are desperate “to have a family”, which means a husband who loves her and the kids.
Unless you understand the main underlying impulse of “Russian brides”, as media calls them, in search for a foreign partner, the signs below won’t make sense.
Now that we have finished with the prelude, time to take you through the reference list. You probably don’t care about the difference—both are Christian, Slavic countries of the former Soviet Union that are famous for pretty women—but if the girls on your Russian dating site are from Ukraine, it’s a definite red flag.
If all you are after is some late night chat with hot Russian girls, to get you going, you don’t need legitimacy. But if you want a true relationship that will transfer successfully to the offline world from the pages of an Internet singles portal, this is where you have to ensure, from the beginning, it’s fully transparent and you get what you’ve been promised.
