Russian Brides Behind The Former Iron Curtain

Most people don't think of the abundance of beautiful single women when they think of Russia.
They will usually think of Communism, Vodka drinking Russian men, and Cold weather. However in reality many people forget that Russia is actually in Europe and often enjoys hot central European summers.
There is a major reason why many russian women look overseas for a husband; the fact is that Russia has a demographic problem.
There are more women than men. It is estimated that there are over 12 million more women than men in Russia, for a women to find a good husband is no easy task.
The main reason Russia has developed a demographic problem is that Russian men have some of the shortest life expectancies in the world.
Many men die young due to many reasons including violence, alcoholism. There were over 24 million killed in the Second World War alone causing a big population decline, the Russian government is working hard at present to reverse the declining male population.
Men from all over the world in particular USA and Canada have all learned about these beautiful Russian brides searching for western men, but it is not always so easy to find your perfect women on the net in one of these Russian dating sites.

Some good advice for men who have decided to search for Russian women is to spend some time researching on the internet, the more you know and understand about Russian women and culture the more chance you will have of finding your perfect women online.
