Truth and myth of online dating camping east sussex kent
With the popularity of sites like e Harmony, match.com, OKcupid and literally thousands of similar others, the stigma of online dating has diminished considerably in the last decade.
More and more of us insist on outsourcing our love-lives to spreadsheets and algorithms.
A related issue is that in Russian and Ukrainian society, it is still seen as essential for a woman to get married at a relatively young age (around 25 being the allowed maximum).
As such, Russian women raised to be able to cook, clean, and make babies relatively well (not all of them, of course – but this is the expected standard overall), and they know that these traits are much more appreciated in the West.
These also do not guarantee that a man will actually get married to a woman on the site – all they provide is the online communication.
And everyone seems to have a story of a “friend” who ordered a Russian bride who divorced him as soon as she got her full citizenship.
There is also a gender imbalance in Russia and the Ukraine, with more women than men, which makes it both difficult to find a husband and more likely that the husband one does find will be entitled, lazy and generally unpleasant.
Western men are still seen as likely to be rich and easy to please.
Russian women are beautiful, funny, charming and intelligent.
But don't bother with the dating websites - you're much more likely to get scammed than anything else.
