In comparison with Western women who know their own worth very well, Russian women are more insecure and have low self-esteem, especially when they are in love. They love with little regard for themselves and almost worship their men. As a rule, a Russian woman will forgive her husband many things and will turn a blind eye to his insults and even physical abuse in some cases. Strangely enough, many Russian women don't want to dump such unworthy men, since they are afraid they won't find somebody else.
On the upside the profiles are brief, which allows you to make decisions quickly. The downside is that short profiles make it harder to figure out what people are looking for. Knowing very little about a person can also make initial messaging more challenging. You'll need to wade through a sea of profiles, which makes it easy to pass over people you might have given a chance under different circumstances. 
If you want to know more about someone, you can always just ask the friend you have in common, which is a human touch that’s absent from most apps. Moreover, people can message you only if you’ve matched, so there are no unsolicited “greetings”. You can see what sort of relationship people are looking for, and while that doesn’t sound that revolutionary, it reflects the fact that Hinge carries more of a dating expectation than a just-hooking-up expectation à la Tinder. Furthermore, because of the friends-of-friends connection, you’re less likely to run across inappropriate photos. That’s a plus in our book.
English is a compulsory subject at schools. It is usually taught starting from grade 5 (nowadays even at primary school). After school, Russians study English at universities or colleges for two years at least. Usually, those Russian girls who live in big cities have a better command of English, although of course this is variable from girl to girl. One in five Russian ladies can speak English well and three in ten know it to a good standard. Those who once learned it but didn’t have much practice will be able to refresh their memory in a couple of months.
When we think of marriage-minded online dating, we think of eHarmony. The site was built in 2000 strictly for singles looking for serious relationships, so you won’t have to weed through profiles of incompatible people. In fact, you won’t have to do any weeding at all. After you take eHarmony’s exclusive and in-depth questionnaire, the site will do all of the matching for you. All you have to do is say yes or no!
