So, the other day I talked about how political issues in Ukraine are re-igniting the Eastern European mail order bride industry, but the same process has already began in Russia and it is probably only going to continue.
Vladimir Putin and the Russian nationalists are not big fans of the mail order bride industry. That’s a fact that should give a lot of the feminists who hate the concept of international dating some pause. Putin and lots of Russian nationalists hate it because it allows beautiful young Russian women to escape from their all-powerful control.
The people around Putin who believe in the Great Mother Russia know that if all of the hot Russian women leave the country then Great Russia will not be so great. They have made a huge effort in the last decade to keep the young and the talented at home.
Russia is a land of vast opportunity. It has incredible resources and the Russian nationalists constantly stress this. They are right that Russia should be a land flowing with milk and honey. In the early years of Putin’s regime this really worked. Emigration to the West fell off and lots of the most beautiful Russian women quit signing up with the international dating agencies. The idea seemed to be — Russia is hot, Russia is booming, so why would I want to miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime?
From after about 2000 on there was a marked slowdown in the overall number of Russian mail order brides, worse for the avid girl watchers among us was that the quality plummeted.
Yes, there were still incredibly hot girls coming out of Russia, but now they were not likely to be coming from Moscow or St. Petersburg. They still came from the provincial towns and Siberia, but the really stunning, well educated, ambitious city girls were opting to stay at home.
Return of the Russian Mail Order Bride
The years 2008 and 2009 when the bottom fell out of the Western economy was probably the worst, but now it seems to be changing and changing in a hurry.
Over 1.25 million Russians have left the country in the last few years and the pace is increasing according to an article in the LA Times.
Apparently, people have lost hope in Putin and are simply sick of the incredible level of corruption.
And that means that Russia may be coming back as THE hot international dating destination. There are some real reasons to consider it. Mostly, it seems like the women really see dating and marriage to foreign guys as an honest good move for themselves.
Do Mail Order Brides Just Want Me For My Money.
Part of it is definitely cultural. They have seen a lot of Western movies and they can barely believe that it is almost unheard of for an American man to drink a fifth of vodka a week and that domestic violence laws are actually enforced and sexual harassment is punished.
These potential foreign brides have aunts, cousins, and friends who have been living in the West since the 1990s and every Russian girl has heard the stories of how great life can be in Bakersfield, Provo, Omaha, Cleveland, and the other exciting cities in the United States, Canada, and other Western countries.
So, seeing that Putin is back and the only ones gaining power are his richest supporters and realizing that the police and courts are owned by the oligarchs many of the smartest and most beautiful girls are deciding to take a flyer on a new life in the West.
Russian Girls – Get ‘em While They’re Hot
So, if you are a Western guy thinking about pursing international dating don’t rule out Russian girls as too expensive and too demanding. Russia was never a BAD international dating destination, but it could well be returning to its glory days.
For you personally that might really be a good thing.
I really do wish so many beautiful Russian women didn’t have to leave Russia to find a husband who didn’t drink like a fish or beat them. It would be great if Russia enforced domestic violence laws and if Russian men didn’t often drink themselves into an early grave. If it had a good government that could wisely use the incredible resources of the country and was not so monumentally wasteful and corrupt.
But that’s not the world we live in and the beautiful women in Russia deserve a chance to make a better life for themselves in the United States, Canada, Australia, and other Western countries.
And you, you should just consider yourself very, very lucky that history has dealt you the chance to help a sweet, beautiful, young woman be happy and live her dreams – even in Bakersfield.
