Nevertheless, if you speak some Russian (speaking Russian is a HUGE advantage as many women don’t speak English), have some decent conversation skills and a tremendous work ethic, you will be in a good position to attain success in Russia.

Overall, the site is great but only useful for those who speak Russian and/or plan to be in Russia soon.

Most of the people on the site do not speak English and are not interested in traveling to meet their matches. You can link to one of your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, or Vkontakte), or you can enter your email address, full name, location, birthday, gender, and what gender you are looking to meet.

You can also put together a separate search of your own, specifying things like education, religion, and location.

You can save these searches for future use, which I found helpful because new members join every day.

How to Communicate with Other Members When it comes to communicating with other members on Russian Cupid, the only real value lies in upgrading to a premium account.

As a free member, there are a few different options available for communicating with other free members: sending interest, adding as a favorite, visiting their profile, and sending a message (that they won’t be able to read).

The site is one of the biggest of its kind with over 23 million users.

has been around quite some time, and its experience in the game shows with a user friendly interface that is packed with useful features that don’t overwhelm the user.

These two big cities have the largest pools of singles from which to choose. In fact, some of the most beautiful women I have ever seen have been from Russia.
