My view is:
(tongue in cheek for those who will not get it)
Western Europe: Good standard of living, decent men, they are close to home and it can be only a 2-3 hour flight to go to visit mum often. Tiny houses. Small crime rate.
In the UK: Men must be like Hugh Grant, heh heh
USA: Money grows on trees, Americans are easy to extract money from, it shows on films that they all live in a large house by the beach like in Malibu. Their pretty women will only want a millionaire that looks like Tom Cruise.
Too far to go and visit mum often.
Canada: Lots of space, good standard of living. Not much seems to happen there, maybe that is good news.
Too far to go and visit mum often.
Mexico/Latin America: They must be poor as it says so in American films. Drug traffickers on every corner (the news says that). Macho men.
Too far to go and visit mum often.
Turkey/Arabia: Forget it unless you are prepared to sell yourself
Australia/NZ: Lots of space, men are not the most sophisticated in the world, good standard of living.
It would be like travelling from another planet to go and visit mum.
Asia: Not considered?
Africa: Not considered.
Other Eastern European countries: Maybe not, men are probably the same as the ones at home.
Other FSU countries: Why go there to get more of the same that they have at home?
At my home in America, money really does fall onto the ground under the trees. When I need money I just go and pick it off the ground. The harvest just lays on the ground in piles, it is a chore to even pick it up. It lies there for years..... I am stating the absolute truth!!!!
What a crock wifeseeker ... In my 5pluss years search for my wife i met many ladys and not one had a problem with australia being so far from russia . My inlaws in a months time visit aust for the second time and my wife goes home once a year to visit family.
16hour train ride from moscow much worse then the fly from moscow to au.
Its not about the place its about the person .
So you think say a lady that lives in ufa that wants to visit mum in say petersburg would have what a 40 hour train trip would consider it like another planet.
So lets say she has a sister that lives in aust she could get to petersburg quicker then the sister that leaves ufa at the same time.
You lot think you know everything .
The ladys many dont want anything to do with europe . Its to close to home and if they want europe men they dont need to go on a dating site
Like for most EU countries moving mainly to the UK and Germany for work so are FSU ladies. I the USA they live near air hubs like NYC and the rest of the East coast or along the West coast. Not so much in the the middle of the USA. By the way , no doesn't grow in trees but job opportunities are way better in the USA.
"The ladys many dont want anything to do with europe . Its to close to home and if they want europe men they dont need to go on a dating site"
So where do they go Poppy? They just walk out on the street and European men are waiting there for them?
What you just said is a load of rubbish. European men DO using dating sites.
You're a fool if you think that geographical location is not a consideration for them. Top desirable countries in Western Europe: UK, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland. In no particular order. Less desirable countries: Spain, Portugal, Greece due to a lower standard of living.
Italy has now joined the PIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Greece, Spain) group, so named for being the bottom of the pile in the EU. Still, I see a number of ladies that dream of going to Italy.
Also, a number of them want to go to Scandinavian countries.
But, in Europe, one main consideration is the language, If the ladies speak a foreign language, it is likely to be English. So the UK has priority but there are other European countries where a lot of people speak English, like Holland, so it helps the ladies survive there.
A number of girls write in their profiles that they can speak German. Few speak French or Spanish, even less Scandinavian languages.
My point is good Ladys dont choose blokes by the country they choose by the person.
And if they are choosing by the place or money they are crap and who fkn cares what they want.
I so pitty the girls that use these internatuonal date sites the guys useing them are retards . Such nice girls sifting through other countrys scraps looking for something half decent .what a shame for them .
Interesting topic. I think that wifeseeker's list has some truth (about typical perceptions).
Of course, the Russian far east is really another country, and for them Australia/NZ are much closer to home.
Many Russian women want to maintain a close connection with Mom (or both parents, if they are still alive and together) -- for them, this is a Big Deal. But not all have such strong family ties. Even while living in Russia, visiting Mom may be a multi-day train ride (each way), occurring at most once a year.
I would add one adjustment about Canada: probably many see Canada as more balanced and less crazy than the USA (with good reasons!), and in some ways more friendly to immigration. Canada already has a pretty significant FSU population, and at least one city (forget which) with a large Ukrainian community.
A Ukrainian woman who had lived for a while in the USA once remarked to me, "why would anybody live in the USA if they could go to Canada?"
Many of the people that post on fbís Ukrainian sites are living in Canada, and Canada has done quite a bit for Ukraine. A common subject among these people is,,,, WTF is America waiting for???
As for living in Canada,,,,,, Iím sure living in the cities could be okay,,, but some of the rural parts are dying out. I know of several small towns that are virtually abandoned. One had 3 gas stations, 3 restaurants, 2 grocery stores, 3 bars, a bank, liquor store, and a few tackle shops and a hardware store. Now,,, sometimes one restaurant,,, short hours at the bank, and of course the liquor store. On my last trip,,, the next town didnít have an operating gas station either.
Their economy isnít the greatest either, on weekends, the border crossing is backed up with people shopping and buying gas in the nearest US city. Quite often it is cheaper to drive in to the US for things and pay the duty at the border.
They have less income taxes, but much more sales tax. If I find a old receipt, Iíll post the %.
Yes, another consideration is how FSU bride friendly the immigration authorities and society are. I think some of them talk sbout it in their FSU women forums.
But most assume that the man will take care of those things. I do not think the majority of them are aware of the visa procedures and implications.
I managed to put off a young and naive girl who thought it was just a question of packing her bags and going to live with the man she chose (it could have been me). She told me the usual story about a friend who married a foreign man.
After I told her how time consuming and difficult it could be just to get her the fiance visa, she told me that it was too much trouble and waiting. She used to visit the dating site every day. One day she did not visit it and, after that, never came back.
