Advantages dating a married woman
Less reliable places to look for a Russian wife are large personals where anyone is invited to place a free ad: they do not screen their members and some ads can be bogus, or were placed by local Russian marriage agencies and you will have to pay a double fee: first to join the personals site, then to the local agency.
Personals sites do not give you any contact details of the women; they only forward your email to her.21.
Selecting an agency: choose an agency that is recommended by many sources, and ask about it in the e-group you joined. If no one knows this agency, you will be better off staying away from them.
Please remember that there are many small local agencies in Russia with the same or similar names; so always include particulars (website address, owner's name etc) when ask questions about agencies.
Think about this process as finding a good job: you need to prepare a quality CV, do your homework and find out about the company you are applying to, adapt your CV to the needs of this company and position you are applying for, and present yourself well at the interview.
Countries that Russian women are mostly interested in: Western Europe, USA, Canada, and Australia.
Many of them will also consider Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Mexico, Argentina, and other Christian countries. Follow the scheme: first letter - correspondence - phone conversations - personal meeting - receiving a fiancee visa for her - marriage. You have the advantage that you already know some information about the woman, and have seen her photo.
Do NOT tell in length about your divorce or its reasons, and do not complain about western women and what you dislike about them.
Do tell her why you decided to look for a wife in Russia and why you selected her ad.This site is an excellent resource; it also has links to other informational sites.
