Gold Coast, Australia (PRWEB) August 10, 2006
According to Elena’s Models, an online dating agency for Russian and Eastern European women seeking western men for marriage, most Russian brides are highly educated professionals, with more than 90% of female members of their site being college or university graduates.
What else can be said about the typical 'Russian bride'? She is about 35 years old, Caucasian, Christian, non-smoker, has medium to long hair, and she is slim to normal built. She is either divorced (49.9%) or never married (46.1%), 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 sizable second. Altogether, 'Russian brides' reside in 59 countries of the world, the top ten countries being, respectively: Russia (52.19%), Ukraine (26.58%), Bulgaria (4.99%), Belarus (3.90%), Romania (3.27%), Kazakhstan (2.18%), Uzbekistan (1.60%), Kyrgyzstan (1.03%), Moldova (0.80%), and United States (0.79%).
It is worth noticing that Russian women living abroad often prefer to use a dating agency specializing in introductions to women from Russia and Eastern Europe rather than a local dating service.
The new research contradicts the traditional view of 'mail order brides' as low-class, uneducated girls that don't know better. According to Elena's Models, most of their female clientèle 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.
