Is there a proper way of asking a lady for additional pictures? Possibly pictures of her hometown, family or friends? Places she likes? Thank for the help.
Thank you, George, for so interesting question!
First let’s answer the question why you want to have such photos? All know that women in Russia get photographed by a professional photographer to place their profiles on dating sites. Partially it is a requirement of the agencies and partially it is a requirement of the time. ‘Cause if there are some professional photos on the site, the girls on them get a lot of letters and g [...] |
|[2005-12-27] Why don’t you give flowers to women?|
| I don’t speak about such occasions as birthdays, the anniversary of meeting, New Year and so on. I mean ordinary days that don’t differ from others! Why to give flowers without any occasion?
They say that poets have a heightened sensibility to the essence of things. Maybe this is why they love to compare a woman to a flower?
Flowers are a permanent attribute of any love story. Can you imagine courting without flowers?
Flowers are a compliment to a lady, the way of saying that a man finds her feminine.
Huge bouquets in the shape of a heart or delicate tulips that touch a heart [...] |

Hello and best wishes
Looking through the profiles, I have seen some very stunning and beautiful ladies, but I can't help wondering are some western men to frightened to write to these ladies, thinking they are to beautiful to be interested in them? Some of the ladies if they were in my country (United Kingdom) I wouldn't stand a chance with.
Yours from England
Thank you for your interesting question! Really, the beauty of girls is not only a trump card, but also a hindrance. Either they receive a lot of letters, but not from the men they are looking for, or [...] |

|[2005-12-03] Man, woman and telephone|
They say that in love three is a crowd! It is not true, if you are on one continent and your loved one is on the other and between you is a telephone.
You shouldn't underestimate the role of telephone conversations. Let's talk about it!
When is it timely to ask for the phone number?
Not to make personal remarks, let's make up two characters. Let one of them be called Bruce (I like «Die hard»), and the other one – Bill (I don't like Microsoft). :))
Bill dials up the number of some pretty Russian woman and hears the man's voice.

New on the site: How to find out the time difference?
Friends, every time you contact us or write your lady, or call her, you wonder what time it is over there? You get into embarrassing situation when the sleepy voice on the other end of the line tells you: “It is 6 o’clock in the morning here!!!”
Or when you wait for the reply, and your e-mail box is empty and only then it dawns on you: “Ah, it is night over there!”
At about 4 pm I say to myself: “Oh, America have woken up!”, because twice as many letters appear in my e-mail box, morning has come to America! :))

|[2005-11-15] Does age matter?|
So it happened that all dating services work with pictures. It is awful! As it is impossible to see personality behind the picture, but only appearance.
So it happened that age influences our looks.
So it happened that age becomes one of the major factors in choosing a partner.
Age matters! And we must know all advantages and disadvantages of different age groups.
1. I am older than she is.
It is the most numerous group. In nearly all international marriages spouses have disparity in 5-10-15 and even 25-35 years. I say “nearly all”, because I need to tell something in the next [...] |

Winter is coming to Russia. There’s been the first fall of snow! Certainly Russia is a huge country (the largest one in the world) and somewhere in northern latitudes there is a lot of snow on the ground already. But I mean the European part of Russia. We have a sign here: a real winter comes in a month after the first fall of snow. This is how beautiful Russian winter is:

According to the recent research of the Study and Settlement of Conflicts Center which belongs to the Russian Academy of Sciences, people working in intellectual sphere divorce much more often than those doing manual labor. Scientists also note that town-dwellers divorce more often than countrymen and they explain it by the fact that in villages a married couple is more controlled by relatives and neighbors.

This week one of our girls told us an unpleasant story. She was delivered a bouquet ordered to her by her fiance through another web-site, but her joy was clouded by an unpleasant circumstance. Here is what she wrote to him:
“You have a really fine taste. Cream-colored chrysanthemums with yellow herberas look stunning. The only thing that upsets me is when I unwrapped this bouquet it turned out that half of the herberas were broken. I was unpleasantly amazed that they were tied by scotch tape, i.e. it had been initially known that they were broken. Well, never mind. You know, that for me y [...] |
|[2005-10-24] Why Feminism isn’t popular in Russia?|
|Not long ago we discussed this subject and then I came across the letter of a Russian girl in the Internet. Take your time to read it! It is very arguable, but it shows well the state of public opinion in today’s Russia. Sometimes I see an opinion in the Internet that strong family traditions of Russian women is a myth made up by dating services. But such letters as this one – emotional and honest – prove the opposite. The letter was written by the girl named Anna. She is a feminist, or want to become such. She reflects on the future of feminism in Russia. [...] |

You were dreaming about your common kids sleeping calmly in the cradles, and she goes on seeking a husband? At last, you’ve opened your heart to her, but she… Don’t haste! In such cases psychologists usually advice to make a deep sigh and count to 10. No help? Keep counting until you realize that you can speculate reasonably.

Just so: don’t humiliate!
There are things that are impossible to change: this awful term “mail order brides” or the stereotype opinion that the economical situation in Russia is really bad and people live poorly and therefore women are ready to marry even a devil for the sake of a sweet life in the West.
But if you are looking for your soulmate, your other half, your love, throw such thoughts away out of your mind! Yes, most likely, she isn’t rich. It is quite possible that she earns a month what you earn a day. But she is a personality with her own dreams, values and dignity, looking [...] |

Kazan changes telephone numbers
Great changes in Kazan telephone numbers.
Firstly, phone numbers have come to consist of 7 digits (used to contain 6 digits). It is concerned with the growth and development of the city. I guess you know already that Kazan turned 1000 years old in August and the population of the city comprises over a million people today. So the city grew short of phone numbers for all its dwellers!
Secondly, the city code has changed as well. It used to be (8432) and now it is (843).

On May 1, Sunday, Orthodox Christians shall celebrate Easter, Jesus Christ's Resurrection!
A lot of traditions are connected with this day.
For example, a person says: "Christ resurrected!". Another person replies: "He truly resurrected!". Then traditionally they kiss each other three times on cheeks. Kissing on this day after the phrases is an old-Slavonic tradition, but now this tradition exists only between close people (for example, family, friends).
After that people exchange colored eggs that they dyed on the eve of Easter.
