The 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.
