Ukraine dating sites & marriage agencies as mediators in the relationship: Top or Flop? (Part 2)
Today, we continue to discuss the topic of Ukrainian marriage agencies as mediators in the relationship. You can read the first part of this article here.
The Russian/Ukrainian Marriage & Matchmaking Agencies
International marriage & matchmaking agencies open up websites and promise their women to find soul mates from abroad. Normally, the age bracket of women who are clients of the agencies range between 30-40 years which is the usual age on the international dating scene. That could only mean one thing, namely: most of these women, in my opinion, are looking for serious guys to date.
How they work
The Russian & Ukrainian marriage agencies place ads on local newspapers and the women who are their clients respond to the ads depending on the impression. They respond by sending letters and photos to the address that was placed in the newspaper. On average the number of applications sent to the agencies, arrays from 5- 15 applications. After the agencies have collected enough information about the ladies, they launch a website where they provide the information they have collected to the men who are potential candidates.
Most of the marriage agencies dictate the on the method of communication used between the two parties involved. They can either decide to sell address or give you a membership or apply both it depends on their policy. Although most of them do not offer a lot of information about their clients to the potential candidates, they usually have a lot of knowledge about their clients. Some agencies and this is a rare case, let you contact the lady free of charge.
Would you like to know the Russian & Ukrainian marriage agencies get money from these services? Like you have always learnt, everything has a price. I think it is fair enough, paying a little price and getting a soul mate is incomparable. It should not be much of a concern about how much you should pay to the marriage agencies. I just thought you should know how agencies earn money from the services they offer.
One is through gift deliveries they make to the lady waiting for a potential candidate and second one is through the tour and accommodation offered to men who visit. Actually a re-seller admitted to earning around 30% of the total price they charge you. In an example where a candidate is willing to pay about $2700 to meet a client for 10 days and this also depends with flow of visitors, which normally isn’t so high.
