Social networks or Russian dating site: what is better?

Hi Krystyna:

My name is Salvador and I’m from Mexico. I’ve been reading your blog for a couple of months, and I’ve learned many things. I’m determined to find a woman from Russia or Ukraine.

I looked on My Partner Forever and Elena’s Models and I liked some interesting profiles (at least for me) that caught my attention. So I started to look for these girls on Vk and I found some of them. So my question is Sould I contact them on VK instead of the dating sites? If the answer is yes, should I mention that where I saw her first?

Hi Salvador,

thank you very much for your message.
Your question is not simple because there are two possible answers.

Answer #1: you can create a profile on and contect the woman who caught your eye on the dating site. Of course, you should say her that you found her on a dating site first, then on And you would like to communicate with her via because it is more private and you wish to avoid “official” period of communication through the dating site.

  1. Contra: the woman wants to use the social network only for communicating with her friends and relatives. She uses to prefer the dating site to find a husband abroad. And she can be felt offended and stalked if you write her directly through the social network.
  2. Pro: you can find out immediatedly if the woman is interested in you and if she is a scam or not.

Answer #2: you should contact the woman first through the dating site and develop the communication with her step by step. Then if you feel that the woman is interested into you and likes you, go to the next step and ask her for private contact details.

  1. Contra: she can be a scammer and you will lose your money and time.
  2. Pro: the woman can be sure that you are serious about her because you develop your communication step by step. You must remember that also Ukrainian and Russian women can gain negative experience with the Western men. Not every Western men is serious and honest with foreign women.

If I were you, I would try both ways and see which method works better: I would write to one woman through the dating site, and to another one through

I hope I could help you!

    Krystyna are any of these marriage agencies the right place to meet genuine women? my experience and have been told directly, most of these sites pay women to be on there sites to chat and provide profiles. I am using a couple of sites but find I am suspicious of all contacts. What do Ukrainian Russian girls really think of these agency sites ?.

    Hi Mike,

    I am sure that the women are still using marriage agencies to find a man for life. Do not confuse marriage agencies from the dating site. The marriage agencies work with a little data bank and offer personal matchmaking services. E.g. KievConnections or Mordinson are marriage agencies. LoveMe, AnastasiaDate, CharmingDate or ElenasModels are dating sites.

    There are free alternatives, like the dating social networks. I would like to recommend my readers to use free dating sites:

    These sites are simple to use and totally free. You can loose only your time (but not your money).
