Dating and marrage in perm russia
Type the Russian words for "get married" or "meet" and "foreigner" into Yandex — the Russian equivalent for Google — and a door opens.This is a world of dating agencies, psychologists, therapists, etiquette training and self-help courses, all geared towards the question of where to meet and how to keep foreign lovers.Tolstykh, whose agency "Here I Am" helps Russian women establish relationships with European men, said most of her clients were "mature" women who had already gone through a divorce or had been disappointed by their relationships with their fellow countrymen."There's an idea that foreign men will be different [from Russian men]," she said.Tolstykh said that more travel experience meant the younger generation of Russian women no longer viewed foreigners through "rose-colored glasses." Terror stories about women who have moved abroad have helped to paint a less rosy picture of mixed marriages.
As the economic motivation to search for a partner abroad has weakened, most of the reasons for looking beyond Russia's borders are cultural, says dating coach and English teacher Svetlana Tolstykh, 40.
In a poll conducted in 2009 by Superjob.ru, one in four women aged 55 or older said she wanted a foreign husband.
In the age group ten years below that, only 9 percent wanted a foreigner.
Life is not as scary," said one respondent in a poll conducted by the website.
Dating coach Tolstykh expects that the niche of women expressly looking for foreigners will become smaller as a new generation of Russian men adopt more emancipated views on relationships.
