single Russian women from among my acquaintances
What I can do for my Russian bride seeking clients
Please note that I am not an agency and
have no plans to expand in that direction. About 1/3 of my
accommodation clients, however, are here because of their Russian
female friends, and I regularly find myself involved into their
projects. My role ranges from lending a friendly ear to issuing
semi-serious advice to watching out for trouble to taking care of of
the paperwork and logistics for you. Thus this document to summarize
that I can (and cannot) do for Russian bride seekers.
discuss the pros and cons of looking
for a wife in Russia, possible
obstacles, common pitfalls and how to avoid them, or anything else
to help you decide whether you want to embark upon this undertaking.
- Access to real Russian women may be
obscured by numerous international dating sites. I can help you
reach beyond the facade. Newspaper ads, in my experience, work best
to establish contact with real women who have not yet received
hundreds of replies and dozens of presents - a situation likely to
result in "there is always someone better around the corner"
syndrome. Of course the absolutely proper method is to move here,
get a job, and live a normal life it is just happens but very few
will do that. Still, your own ads are much preferable to agencies.
- I'm in a good position to place your ads in
Tver and to monitor replies. Tver is famous for its beautiful
women and distorted male to female ratio. Further, women in some of
the newer local dating and marriage agencies in Tver may be receiving only
2-3 replies per month, as opposed to hundreds in large international
ones. Thus your ad or your profile with the agency stands a a chance of getting noticed
and standing out when seen by you match.
- Do you have special preferences?
Don't hesitate to share these with me. Be assured that I will not be
offended by tastes or needs that differ from the average. On the other hand I very well may be able to recommend
you go about looking for that special someone.
- Translations, done on-the-fly, with my
comments (optional) to help you truly understand each other. I
understand nuances and subtleties of both English and Russian and
thus can help you truly understand each other.
- I can deliver your presents and report how the woman you are interested in looks and sounds in
person. If she does not mind I will make photographs.
- Photos, realistic to the point of cruelty, are
my specialization. I will show you things that her controlled
public image may not reveal, eg. extra weight or crooked teeth or
- You will not need to worry about Russian
brides scam because scammers - at least all I've encountered so
far - operate remotely through large international dating sites. No
scammer has so far emerged from a small personal ad in a local
newspaper. Suspected scammers always disappeared when a face-to-face contact
with me as your agent was proposed. Contact me if you are being
asked for money.
- I can facilitate the paperwork related to your
marriage. With some luck we'll get the affidavit of no
impediment to marriage and have it sealed at the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs same or next day.
- Things didn't work out?
If part of the problem is, geographically, in Russia, I may help by
acting as your agent. I sincerely hope this will not be necessary
but I will do whatever my client requires except contract murder and
similar gross violation of rules moral and legal. I totally
understand the sentiment but am too much of a wimp to risk ending up
in a Russian prison. Two enquiries of that sort so far.

No fee for 1-2 e-mails. For a consultation
involving 4-6 e-mails and perhaps a couple of phone calls $50 will
be appropriate. Placing an ad, providing a Post Office Box
address, collecting letters, translating those into English, and
scanning and e-mailing photos will typically generate a $120-150
bill. Translation of large amounts of routine correspondence is 5
cents per word. Something extra for translator's comments or
extensive re-working of passages that are likely to be
misconstrued. Think of 4 average e-mails as $25. Present delivery
will be $50 or so. Same for thoughtfully selecting and purchasing
the present on your behalf. The average bill for buying the
present, interviewing the subject, and shooting and e-mailing her
photos is normally around $120-150. Fees for large
assignments are based on $20-25 per hour rate.

difference. We here are 9 hours ahead of New York here, and 3
