Are Russian women primarily interested in American men for the Green Card and citizenship?
Question: Are Russian women primarily interested in American men for the Green Card and citizenship? I mean really - why else would a VERY attractive 25-30 year old Russian woman be willing to enter a relationship with a 45+ year old man?
Bob's Answer: Surely one can find Russian women with these kinds of motives, but ulterior motives exist everywhere. And from my observations, with a little common sense combined with a little guidance one stands a better chance of finding a woman with healthy motives in Russia than here in America... Just my jaded opinion ;-)
Most of the scams and gold diggers are avoidable if you follow the advice on this site (see specifically Russian Dating Scams). I also address the issue of Russian women marrying just to come to America at Russian Women Myths.
As for WHY very attractive young (25-35) Russian women are open to Western men over 40-45 years old -- well, it's really a simple matter of supply and demand. As I mention elsewhere on this site (Why Russian Women), Russian women outnumber Russian men, and Russian men are very often unfaithful to their women, and many of them are alcoholics. This means that single, available, faithful, employed, non-alcoholic Russian men in EXTREMELY short supply.
On the flipside, many Russian women are more family minded than your average American woman. It's relatively rare for a Russian woman over 25 to not want a husband and children, and they know that an irresponsible, alcoholic, unemployed, serial cheater does not fit into this family picture very well, whereas a 40+ year old Western man with a stable job fits the picture quite well.
THAT is why very attractive young Russian women are often open to older American men.
Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
