Most women will say to you that the reason they seek a partner on the Internet is that it's not easy to find a good man in Russia. Listing a profile with an international introduction agency allows them to broaden their horizons in search for a suitable partner.
Gold Coast, Australia (PRWEB) November 12, 2006
Elena's Models, the Internet's only licensed Russian brides agency featuring pre-screened women of model quality, released the latest data on demographics of Russian and Eastern European women seeking marriage to western men via Internet. Russian girls using the agency are predominantly white, college educated, non-smoking slim women living in large cities.
What else can be said about the typical "Russian bride"? She is about 35 years old, Christian, slim to normal build, and has medium to long hair. She is either divorced (49.9%) or never married (46%), and she can be either childless (51%) or already have kids (49%).
Country-wise, most "Russian brides" are, not surprisingly, from Russia, with Ukraine holding sizeable second. Altogether, Elena's Models female members reside in 59 countries of the world, the top ten countries being, respectively: Russia (51.76%), Ukraine (26.94%), Bulgaria (4.60%), Belarus (3.83%), Romania (3.63%), Kazakhstan (2.15%), Uzbekistan (1.61%), Kyrgyzstan (1.04%), United States (0.87%) and Moldova (0.86%).
Over the period of last months, the number of women from such European countries as Ukraine and Romania increased on Elena's Models, which can be explained by the fact that the agency has its own full-time offices in those countries. Elena's Models also have offices in Russia and Bulgaria, which help establish personal relationships with girls and women using the dating agency to find a partner.
Over the past months, more Russian women living in the United States listed their profiles with Elena's Models, which moved the U.S. from number 10 to number 9 in the list of countries over Moldova (one of the republics of the former Soviet Union). Interestingly, Russian women living in western countries often prefer to use an agency specializing in introductions to women from Russia and Eastern Europe rather than a local dating service.
According to Elena Petrova, the owner of the agency, their ladies seek marriage and are ready to relocate if find a suitable partner. "Finding the right partner is not easy, no matter where do you live. Many of our ladies get married to local men. They do not seek immigration; they seek the right partner."
"Elena's Models require detailed background information from all applicants and comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005. Every profile is checked by a real human. Some dating sites allow automatic submissions and this can result in a poor quality database. We believe it is important to give our users the feeling of safety."
According to Elena's Models, most of their female clientele are professionals that are established in life and career and would like to share their success with a worthy man. Russia has one of the lowest male-to-female ratios in the world, with only 86 men for 100 women. According to the latest census conducted in 2002, there are over 10 million more women than men in Russia.
"Most women will say to you that the reason they seek a partner on the Internet is that it's not easy to find a good man in Russia. Listing a profile with an international introduction agency allows them to broaden their horizons in search for a suitable partner."
