For the past decade, more and more single western men go to Russia to meet a Russian girl looking to marry a western man. It is estimated that international dating websites and Russian marriage agencies each year provide over three million contacts to single Russian girls who want to get married. Men, especially from the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, and the Nordic countries in Europe, are the most frequent visitors when meeting a girl seeking marriage in Russia. The typical man that goes to Russia to meet a Russian girl is between 40 and 60 years old who has been divorced and already has children. Moreover, he has been single for a couple of years and has tried to find a suitable match in his home country, only to discover it is impossible. Unfortunately, it has become difficult for men in western societies after a sudden age to find someone to share their life with. The reason being that women in the west today choose to live alone rather than living with a man.
According to a recent European study, 33% of women in western countries will rather live alone than with a man, whereas only 8% of single men want to live alone. On top of that, demographically, there are 2-3% more men than women in most western countries, making it even harder to find someone to marry. Also, loneliness is more challenging for men who live alone than for women, and it has more severe health consequences than it has for women. Hence, being a single man over 40 in western societies is not as straightforward as it used to be. Furthermore, many western men find it harder to communicate with women they meet locally than it used to be. Today, women have embraced many progressive ideas that view all men as an enemy and patriarch to women no matter what the circumstance. Thus, finding common ground with western women gets harder every day, and it does not look like it is going to change any time soon. It only seems to get worse.
Another reason why western men seek a Russian girl for marriage is the age and attractiveness of the Russian girls who look for marriage. In Russian relationships, it is perfectly normal, with an age difference of 10-15 years in the man’s favor. The reason being that Russian girls prefer a more mature man and not a baby they have to babysit. And regarding Russian girls and their looks, they generally are much more attractive than western women. A final reason why western men seek Russian girls for marriage is the fact that girls in Russia outnumber men significantly, and thus there is a surplus of girls compared to the west, where there is a surplus of men. What is more, Russian men are not known to be very kind or considerate to the opposite sex. In Russia, you have millions of cases of physical abuse towards women every year, and most of them happen in a relationship or marriage. Thus, for a Russian girl, a man from the west is perceived to be more attractive for the fact alone that he treats girls with more respect and consideration.
