So Where Did All The Russian Men Go?
- The Gender Imbalance In Russia: As unbelievable as it sounds, the truth is that there are simply not enough men to marry the women in the country. There are the few who are lucky to get decent Russian men to marry them; however there’s a huge percentage of single women who are left lonely. Many Russian women are smart and well educated with great jobs and flourishing careers but lack a man to settle down with. These ladies have no option but to turn to international dating sites with the hope that they will be lucky to get a nice decent man to marry them.
- War: The history of this difference in the numbers of Russian men and Russian women in Russia dates back to the World War 2 period when Russia lost almost 29 Million soldiers. Earlier on in 1917, many women in Russia also lost their husbands and sons to the Bolshevik Revolution. These two periods of war significantly reduced the number of Russian men in the society leaving a huge gap between the number of Russian women and men.
- Alcoholism: Alcoholism has also been blamed for the deaths of many young Russian men. A 2009 study blamed alcohol for more than half the deaths (52%) among Russians aged 15 to 54 in the nineties. This is a situation that many young Russian single girls have witnessed and would prefer to avoid. Due to the huge shortage to the already few available men for ladies to choose from, many women turned international dating sites to help them find men.
- Conscription in Russia: Most of the young single Russian women are unable to get young men to marry them because in Russia when young men turn 18 they are drafted into the army. It is mandatory for all Russian men aged between 18 and 27 to be drafted into the army for a period of at least 12 months with a few exceptions. This means that any young lady looking to marry her counterpart has very limited options. Young Russian ladies often opt to turn to international dating sites instead of waiting for the drafting period to end or competing with the other millions of women for the few available men.Low Male
- Life Expectancy: It is also interesting to note that the average male life expectancy in Russia is just 59, while that of women is 70. The shockingly low life expectancy of men in Russia leaves a huge gap in the Russian population. This simply means that many men die much younger leaving many single or widowed women.
Why are Russian women attracted to Western men?
Other than the difference in numbers between men and women in Russia, the main reason why Russian women tend to look for men outside Russia is LOVE. Ladies from Russia are usually simply looking for a nice decent man who will love them and marry them and give them a family. They tend to believe that they can get the kind of love they are looking for from Western men.
They are attracted to western men because these men are deemed to be romantic, caring, family oriented, responsible and chivalrous. They believe that foreign men are serious about love and that they are more loyal and committed when it comes to relationships. If you find a lady on a dating site, chances are that she is serious about finding love and is ready to settle down.
