Is it a result of answers of expat men or Russian women? (sorry, can`t open the link) These figures reflect the situation of 90s, I think. Nowadays love seem to be more valuable in this choice.

I, for instance, married a foreigner in 1991, it was a combo of love and better life. And married a Russian in 2005. Things change!!!

You know, after the first marriage didn`t work out, I was very serious about "never again". I could have affairs, but ran away as soon as the man started talking about marriage.

This guy was my neighbour, so I couldn`t ran away far.......:jester:

Hey good thing, you can combine both of your apartments and have a really big one. Remove some walls or put in some doors. Really.. this guy is definately the one for you. I admire his persistance.

congratulations! thanks for sharing. On the question of foreign men, especially those who don't live in Russia but arrive in Russia on a short visit, it could be that many who have received little or no love from women in their own countries, when they do receive some attention from Russian women, they are overwhelmed, mistakenly thinking that they have found the love of their lives

well it doesn't take long to find out if a woman (or a man) is being genuine. I haven't taken a bad decision so far partly because I have familarity with a few different societies (other than the western) but because in western society women are encouraged to deny their feelings and needs, a lot of men from the US, Canada,Holland,UK, Germany etc have been looking for women from other parts of the world only for many of these unfortunate men to fall victim to golddiggers in those countries!

I have no idea why my (Russian) wife married me. 16 years and 3 kids later, I still haven't figured it out.

thought this thread would have more Russian apologists trying to shoot down the 13% statistic. I'll wait.

not my business but i would say "honesty" it is not really their strongest point:iloveyou:

otherwise how comes they are so often adjectivate with words which are far from representing concepts such as "honesty"?

no actually everyone knows that, there are countries in which the word Russian is straightly translated into that thing

now i would rather avoid having you ranting at me since, as you know, i have lived in russia enough to know that girls there are mostly normal individuals and most of them are nor goldiggers nor cheap chicks

thanks

Foreign men, bath twice a day, clean their teeth and wash their clothes, wear their clothes once then wash them, use tissues to blow their noses, they dont clear their sinuses out alloud and spit it out in public. And they have at least 3 inches on the russians, and know how to use it!!!

Excuse me, did you do some maths in school? How many years between 1991 and 2005??? Isn`t it a bit more then 10?

If you pity your expat fellah, I divorced him before starting seeing other men.

he could be wrong on both counts! how does he know anyway? a lot of foreign men seem to be mainly good at being loud (is voice level a measure of frustration?)

They say that any man gets a woman he deserves... or is searching for. I cant say if it's 100% true, but still there is something in this statement.

True. (Eh, I mean the first part of the post! :D). But! One may bath several times a day and have "dark heart"; may clean his teeth and say bad things; may wear his clothes once then wash them and do a dirty deed... it's even more repulsive, let alont it is just deceptive.

I better stop now, the serious part of my nature is taking over again :duhhhh:
