I used to work in the Toronto Jewelry trade and it’s amazing how many former Russians work in the trade. My first, well only, boss was a Russian Armenian and he happened to be the son of a famous Russian basketball player. When my bosses father moved to Canada he got into the jewelry trade almost immediately and he still works in the business. They’d been involved in the jewelry trade in Russia and brought their skills to Toronto with them.
So now, when I think of Russians, I always seem to think back to my days in the jewelry trade. I remember those times fondly because I really enjoyed the people that I worked with. We got to be friends and I learned some of their language and customs.
Imagine my surprise when I visited a website called Lovers Planet that specializes in dating. Particularly matching up Russian women with potential suitors in other countries.
The woman listed in LoversPlanet.com are, in most cases, true Russian brides. They’ve listed their profiles on the site and they are hoping to hear from foreign men who are also interested in online dating and possibly marriage.
When a Russian woman applies with the dating service they undergo a short phone interview. Now, I can tell you from my experience with both Russian men and Women they are generally good people. The women are brought up to be marriage minded so it’s not at all odd to me that they would list themselves at LoversPlanet with the specific hope of finding a man they could love and eventually marry.
New members of the site are welcome to send free introduction emails to the Russian girls. The womens profiles list photographs as well so interested parties will have an idea of what the woman they are interested in looks like. The site states that most of their female members are educated, employed, computer literate and have at least a basic knowledge of English. Many of them work in the fields of marketing, banking, accounting and some are even police officers.
One feature that some of you might like is the Top one hundred Russian Bride List. I suppose this is a list of the most popular women listed on Lovers Planet.
Visit the site if you are interested in dating and getting into a serious relationship. Perhaps you’ll find a Russian woman similar to some of the ones that I met in the Jewelry trade. If you do – you’ll be a lucky guy!
