How To Choose A Dating Agency

8:00 PM

People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other’s personalities. Who wouldn’t? Anybody can love the most wonderful parts of another person. But that’s not the clever trick. The really clever trick is this: Can you accept the flaws? 
-Elizabeth Gilbert

In recent years, primarily thanks to the internet, dating has become big business indeed (especially when it comes to Russian brides). Just search for marriage agencies on Google and you will find almost 3 million responses.

In fact, there are thousands of dating websites out there trying to get your attention. Some of them are highly reputable while others are simply scams that exist purely to take your money.

However, online dating is still a fantastic way to meet your soul mate who is serious about getting married, but, in most cases, joining a marriage agency is actually not a cheap option.

In this way, if you are thinking about signing up to such a website, in particular, Russian women dating agency, you should be confident you find the right one as you will be investing both financially and emotionally.

How To Choose A Dating Agency

The first thing you should do is to pay attention to the following:

A reliable dating website, like, should have such important sections as “Terms and Conditions” and “Refund Policy,” as well as some contact information and support. That’s actually the main guarantee that you won’t be cheated in the future.

Make sure that profiles published on the website belong to the real-life women. Check the photos (absolutely all Russian girls cannot be supermodels, there should be just pretty ordinary women) and personal information (look for some details written instead of general phrases).

Don’t hurry to pay at once. First, learn everything you can about the chosen dating agency. For example, how many profiles they have, whether they have partners or not, what are the fees, and so on. By the way, the reliable dating agency has no need to charge much as they usually earn on a large amount of letters. Moreover, most likely, they will offer some services for free.

Some words about scams

Scams are the main problem in the online dating world. That is especially true for small Russian women dating agencies that don’t have any credit at the international databases. What they do is they ask you to send lots of cash promising a desired happy ending with a beautiful Russian girl.

Here are some scam warning signs you should pay attention to:
similar, impersonal letters;
plane ticket/insurance/visa charges soon after you start communicating;
style of writing often changes;
unanswered questions;
odd emails;
all photos too good to be true;
sudden tragedy or illness in the family.

These are just a few of the possible scenarios taking place in the online dating world. So you should be very careful selecting a marriage agency. Try to learn as much as you can before you sign up to one of them.

Anyway, it’s always better to choose a big player with years of experience and plausible size of the membership.

Good luck!

  14. Wow, dating agency, wouldn't it be expensive to go through their service to find partner?

  15. Hi, dear Luxie!

    Even with all the helpful advice offered in Katerina's article, I would never feel totally at ease joining a dating service or marriage agency. Even if the company is legitimate there is no way for them to verify if all of the claims made in all of the member profiles are honest and accurate. Many people misrepresent themselves to boost their chances of making a love connection. Dangerous predators might also be lurking on those sites. My advice to singles looking for love via marriage agencies or dating sites is to proceed with great caution.

  16. I am hearing the dating sites can and do work for some!
