Nothing comes easier then clicking "next" while browsing through dozens and even hundreds of profiles listed on dating sites. Building an effective, attractive profile is necessary if you've ventured into online Russian girls dating. Empty pages with tricky questions may seem challenging, but don't despair: we are here to tell you how to make the most of all that white space and put your best foot forward.
Don't play Hide 'n Seek
When you are filling out the profile, remember that your key goal is to give as many opportunities to make personal connections as possible. Writing something like "Ask if you want to know" for your name makes you look like a college kid playing around, or someone who has things to hide. Such seemingly sharp funny phrases do not make Russian girls think you are serious. While you don't have to disclose every piece of private information, be open about who you are and keep in mind how Russian girls will perceive you.
Honesty IS the best policy
Lies come in all shapes, sizes and at times may seem harmless. You wouldn't be the first one to add a few inches to your height, drop a few pounds or compare yourself to a dashing Hollywood hunk. However, these funny innocent "mistakes" will come back to haunt you, especially if your goal is to meet a lady face to face after some time. When you are talking about yourself, fill in your stats accurately and update as necessary. Being upfront will save you and your date the time and the embarrassment of looking unreliable, when you meet with the girl of your dreams. As cliche as it might sound, honesty is the best policy and is your guarantee of building a trusting foundation for a successful relationship.
So, I'm not Brad Pitt and I'd rather play sports than go for a romantic dinner. What do I do?
Whatever you choose, don't lie! Don't say you enjoy theater just to attract Russian girls (unless you really like it). Don't leave out important things about yourself (to avoid disappointment later), simply highlight the things you might have in common with the weaker gender, focus on things that you could both get involved in and share as a couple.
Realistic is good
So you read somewhere that putting words like "funny, outgoing and handsome" in your profile will generate more hits. Sure, it will! But if you are serious, introverted and don't like mirrors much, you will also lose any fans after exchanging a few emails, and especially so after a personal meeting. If you make a claim about yourself, be sure you can back it up throughout your communication. It is better to stress your positive qualities and interests in order to draw a Russian girl's attention to your inner world, than to make a statement that will make you afraid to meet with your choice lady later on.
While some people feel shy or unsure about their pictures, let us assure you - it is better to include one than to leave your profile without it. When Russian girls browse through profiles, seeing a photo helps make great associations. If you include a photo showing you during a favorite activity, it will show Russian girls your personality, give them an extra something to ask you about and you will be twice as memorable as some John Doe who has nothing but "a brilliant personality."
Writing about yourself… Sky's the limit
You may not be comfortable talking about yourself or, on the contrary, have a hard time stopping once you start. If you are the latter: lucky you. However, remember, too much can get boring. If you have a hard time filling out the "about me" section, make sure that you write more than a couple sentences. Think of interesting stories that have happened to you, decide what makes you unique and share that with the world. Whatever the case, make sure that whatever you write as your introduction Russian girls will get to know who you are.
Who is she?!
You will also be asked to describe the kind of girl you are looking for. Long legged 6 foot blonde with blue eyes is nice, but you may want to reconsider listing that as your only choice. Being so specific first of all limits your choices (a 5'11" girl with blue eyes and light brown hair will read your profile, sigh and move on) and shows you as uncompromising. Set reasonable requirements as to the type of Russian girl you are looking for so that you will not miss the great matches who slightly differ from your stated requirements.
List your interests
Questions like "Your favorite movie", "Your favorite band", "your favorite color", etc. may seem corny and make you roll your eyes. But think big: they make a great way for you to point out the things you and your potential darling have in common, give Russian girls a better idea about who you are and clues as to how to begin correspondence with you.
Double check what you write
A grammar or spelling mistake won't turn Russian girls off, but being careless in your writing will easily make them move on. Sloppy language can give an impression of a not so bright, careless or lazy person. Run a spell checker on everything you write and review it to avoid obvious mistakes: it will show good manners and online etiquette if you use good language.
Watch your manners with Russian girls
Keeping your profile light is a good idea, but be careful to avoid sounding like you are looking for a one-night relationship. Don't make your references and suggestions too sexual, such behavior will not land you a girl of your dreams and an ideal wife or mother. Save it for a later time, if you must, or until the girl you are communicating with brings it up first.
Another thing to keep in mind is the culture differences. While you may not be aware of what department stores, restaurants, etc. are or are not available overseas, you can limit the number of misunderstandings by making general statements (i.e. "restaurant" instead of "Olive Garden), by specifying (i.e. "Olive garden, a great Italian restaurant with incredibly tasty food) and leaving room for Russian girls to ask questions about your culture peculiarities.
With all of the above said, here is a last piece of advice: even if you have created a great profile that is a reflection of your personality, sometimes if you want Russian girls to write you, take a chance and write them first.
