“Russian brides” from Igor Cherski

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-4l1kA6Kp1Ls/UzgqJKrR-iI/AAAAAAAAAis/TzoSpxTAE_c/w604-h339-no/25.jpgThe subject, although not as wildly popular as before, remains among top search phrases. The market however is dominated by the biggies (anastasiadate.com and the like – see a compilation in my neglected and nearly abandoned where.cheap-moscow.com) that quickly teach all parties to view the search as an end in itself. Women are having fun and get free trips. Men are losing money and creeping towards the heart attack or stroke at the rate slightly higher than what was intended by the Almighty. Dating site owners are making $$ although, knowing the industry from inside, not as much as they appear to. And I get yet another piece of evidence that we are dead and in hell, which is my pet explain-it-all theory.

All is well, all are happy if looked at a certain way.. Small private matchmakers are have been nearly phased out, and certainly are not easily accessible to someone looking from afar, as is probably your case.

Today I’m happy to add another one, not even a matchmaker but just a do-gooder and a philanthoropist, a well known and respected journalist Igor Cherski who opended a section for singles in his livejournal just to help his human brethren. Most of these singles are women in the 26-40+ age range.

You too are probably welcomed to post your ad. Conditions I dare to guess are probably as follows: your self-description has to be infomative and vibrant, and server as a positive contribution to Cherski’s blog, not a balast. Bland ads would be out of place there given blog’s style and the type of characters it attracts.

Although the blog is in Russia, most of its readers will easily understand English. I’m of course availalbe to help you develop and translate your story.

..While on the subject, see a tiny mom and pop (actually father and daughter) type agency named Skiff in Ryazan (should be somewhere among where.cheap-moscow.com clutter) and two agencies in Murmansk, a very short (200 miles, short in the local understanding of the word) drive from Kandalaksha.

“Russian brides” from Igor Cherski — 7 Comments

  1. dear uncle pasha,

    interesting. i know after the fall of the soviet union this was big business, but now with russia floating in oil money i was sure it had ended. here in asia vietnamese brides are big business now especially for the chinese men!

  2. (a) It is generally understood by those in possession of >2 neurons that oil prices will drop; there is not much of a solid foundation under the current appearance of wealth.

    (b) Some find life here unpleasant regardless of money. When I was coaching people for their immigration interviews at the Canadian embassy many knew very well that as far at $$ go they would be making far less in Canada. I’d much prefer being a poor farmer making $12 th. somewhere in Canadian backwoods than being where I am. Of course becoming such a farmer would require me to change myself more than I possibly can so it is not a real option. But life here can be highly unpleasant regardless of $$.

    The current frenzy that involves 80% of the population means that 2% are scared shitless, and half of them are ready to leave. And 1% of 150 million is a lot.

    Unlike Vietnamese, Russian ladies look sort of European at the first glance, and most western men just don’t understand how wide the cultural gap can be. Or that it will at some point hit them. Almost unavoidably. I don’t see many of Russian bride clients these days. Not in mass numbers. Used to be one every 1-2 months. But I still get 1-3 per year of those who want a Russian bride and nothing but a Russian. And I’m in no position to turn down a few kopecks. Still, every time I go out of my way to issue advice. It has never been taken, and I’ve lost clients because of that. Two I can think of very recently. But I still do that to sort of cover my ass in the Last Judgement.

  3. Don’t waste your money on Russian Bride sites! When I met Pasha, I realised that he could help me meet numerous beautiful Russian women during my trip, without having to pay some ugly website. I wasted money on them in the past. Sincere thanks to you, Pasha, for all your assistance and valuable advice! I will be happy to share my experiences with anyone who is interested in this crazy type of adventure.

    • My heard still aches when I think of these two beauties from Ryazan you’ve missed. Tell fellow seekers that in this dynamic market, when a good deal come along, grab it! Shit, I’ve just reminded myself of two opportunities to make my million. Both lost because of the assumption, brought from Canada, that things and arrangements don’t change with time. Not in their core anyway. But they, and turn around and flip over here, in this part of the world.

    • Дорогой Паша! Еще раз, и с некоторым уже отчаянием, напоминаю, что если ты пишешь ответ в изолированном окошечке вместо того, чтобы нажать на replay непосредственно под комментарием, с которым вступаешь в диалог, то автор комментария НЕ получает извещения о твоем ответе и может обнаружить его только специально заходя и тырясь на сайт. Таким образом ты сильно снижаешь вероятность продолжения диалога, увы-увы.
