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

The best online dating sites in Russia cannot compare in terms of quality and membership numbers to the best online dating sites in the United States and Canada.

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.

Once this is done, you are an official member, but you must activate your account through a text code before you can search other members or be searched.

How to Locate Potential Matches There are a lot of criteria you can use when searching through the profiles to narrow down the results, including location, age, new members, and even how active a member is.

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.

Nevertheless, if you speak some Russian (speaking Russian is a HUGE advantage as many women don’t speak English), have some decent conversation skills and a tremendous work ethic, you will be in a good position to attain success in Russia.

Your best success with online dating in Russia will be in Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

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.
