There will be men or women who might only be interested in helping you to part with your hard-earned cash. Just keep sending out messages and reach out until you find the person you are looking for and get success.

As is typical with online dating, expect a response rate of around 1-10% depending on how good your profile is.

Online dating in Russia hasn’t taken off to the extent it has in other parts of the world.

After sharing a bit about yourself and what your ideal partner would look like, you’re finished and free to browse profiles.

Periodically, Russian Cupid will ask you to answer a few more questions from your profile to continue on with what you were doing.

Rest assured, when you sign up for one of these dating sites, you will see a number of stunningly attractive women.

Should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear.

I was a long time member of one of the sister sites of Russiancupid.com, Afrointroductions.com, while I was living in both Mauritius and South Africa as an expatriate. Russian Cupid used to be known as Russian but was gobbled up by the Cupid Media Network and given a re-haul.

A search for women living in Moscow between 18 and 35 years old who have been active on the site within the last 3 months will turn up more than 1000 profiles. It now sports the same elegant website design as the other Cupid Media sites, as well as the same strong features, including video/audio chat (for premium members) and effective anti-spam measures, such as profile ID verification.

You can also put together a separate search of your own, specifying things like education, religion, and location.

You can save these searches for future use, which I found helpful because new members join every day.

The site is one of the biggest of its kind with over 23 million users.

has been around quite some time, and its experience in the game shows with a user friendly interface that is packed with useful features that don’t overwhelm the user.

If you’re looking for some Eastern European love, Russian Cupid is the site for you.
