Both men and Russian women can join us for free by submitting their profile here. You will choose a username and will be assigned a mail box on our server where you can check your mail and keep track of sent mail, contacted members, purchased and spent credits. We strongly encourage you to upload your pictures to your profile, as profiles without pictures get virtually no responses. Give those Russian girls and cute guys a chance to see you! :)
You can, then, search our database and contact any number of members. There are 3 ways to contact them (it's your choice):
- Send them a message (free)
The Russian girls that have Internet access will receive your message instantly. However, some of our female members do not have Internet access and in this case we will forward your message to our representative in her city who will deliver it to her in person, by phone or by post mail. Her response will be delivered in the same way right into your mailbox on our website. You will receive email notification of each message received.
If you receive a response, to open it you need to purchase credits ($1-$2 per credit depending on the quantity of credits you purchase). Number of credits needed to open a letter varies (see the Price Structure below). You can pay with a credit card, a check, wire transfer, and more.
- Send them a “smile” (free)
A “smile” is a quick “Hi!” message with a link back to your profile, which tells a Russian woman or a charming hunk you are interested in her or him.
- Place a live interpreted phone call directly to special Russian girls via our bi-lingual operator (1.8 credits per minute)
Call toll-free 1.866.974.6453 (or outside of the US call +1 (312) 252-0005 ) between 6AM and 3PM CST, and tell the operator your login to our site, and the name or reference number of the member you want to talk to. If that member has her phone number on file for this connection, the operator will dial her, and if she is home the operator will stay on the line and interpret your conversation as you speak. If she is not home, but someone of her family answers the phone, the interpreter will arrange for a follow-up call.
* Note that for some Russian women we do not have their number listed; or we may have to arrange the call in advance. In such instances we will not be able to connect you immediately, instead we will schedule a call for a later time which is convenient for you and the Russian woman. Some Russian girls have chosen not to be disturbed with "cold calls", so they will not accept a call, if they have not seen a man's profile or a letter from him first.
Once you have established a conversation with one or a few Russian women one way or another, it's time to think about personally meeting your Russian woman (or him). So, how do you meet her? Since our men and women are often located on different continents, we can help arrange your first meeting, if both parties positively agree to meet. Most of the Russian women won't be able to obtain a visa to come to the US, so the meeting is usually arranged either by men traveling to her country, or meeting somewhere on a “neutral territory”, like Dominican Republic, France, Turkey, Cyprus, etc. While some of these countries do not require entry visas for citizens of former Soviet Unions, others do, and the difficulty of getting such a visa for her varies. We have a complete section on Visas and Immigration in our FAQ.
Once you have met in person and if you both want to take it further, the next step would be to apply for her “fiancee” visa. On this type of visa she would be able to come to your country and stay for a certain period of time (for US it's 90 days). If you get married during this period, the Russian woman is your to stay in your country indefinitely. If you don't get married, she has to go back to her home country. Read What Is the Process and How Much it Costs to Bring a Russian Woman Here on the FAQ page.
If you choose not to use our service to arrange your meeting with the lady, there is a way to bypass it by getting her direct contact information. Read about it here.
We have a unique floating price structure which allows us to offer you such low prices as 50 cents per one letter exchange (sending one letter and receiving one response) without ever cutting corners on quality of the service. Similar services from our competition is as high as $8. Of course, our services to women are traditionally free of charge. We really are here to help you in your quest after that Russian woman.
Important: once you start corresponding with a Russian woman, the price you pay to open her letter stays the same for you.
Here is how it works. First, you purchase credits at the following prices:
- 100 credits or more: $1 for each credit
- 55 credits: $1.09 for each credit
- 20 credits: $2 for each credit
Note: We accept all major credit cards, checks, wires, and more.
Second, the price (in credits) for opening a letter from each member also varies, and here is why. While the vast majority of our male members have personal email addresses and easy access to the Internet, this is not always the case with our female members. Delivering messages to some of the Russian girls who do not have Internet access, involves calling them and asking to come to a local facility to read their mail and respond to those they are interested in. There is a translator available at each local facility to help read the message and write a response if a woman does not speak English. If the lady cannot come to the local facility soon, an interpreter would read the message to her over the phone and/or it will be printed and mailed to her by domestic mail. This is an expensive process. However, in case of Russian women who do have Internet access and a personal email which they regularly check, delivering a message to them is as easy as forwarding it, and is fully automated. So the bottom line for delivering your correspondence is different in each case. While our competitors will charge you the full price in any case and just pocket the difference, we are passing the savings on to you.
The majority of our Russian girls do have email address, and you can correspond with them directly, without any agency involvement, for a very low price (as low as 50 cents per 2-way letter exchange)
However, there is more. The problem with all dating sites is that a small number of charming Russian girls who are extremely popular get the majority of letters from men. That's bad for both the majority of Russian women who do not get any letters as well as for guys whose letters go unanswered. The dating sites do not really care about that as long as they can put the pretty faces of their most popular girls on the first page and sell subscriptions or addresses. They do not advertise the fact that these Russian girls have received hundreds of letters from other men. To cure this inherent problem we are introducing a floating price for correspondence with each Russian woman based on the number of members she is actively corresponding with. Our system monitors how many letters she had already received. The more letters a Russian woman receives, the greater is the price in credits to open a letter from her. The price however stays constant for those men already corresponding with her, but increases for new contact attempts, thus, naturally limiting the number of guys writing to her. At a certain point, when too many letters go unanswered and price increase is no longer practical, her profile will be dropped from search results (allowing existing correspondence with her to continue anyway). If a member is not answering any letters his or her profile will be suspended and later removed for inactivity.
The price in credits you actually pay for opening a letter from a given female member will be based on the above two factors and varies from 0.5 credit to 20 credits.
All the information we have about our Russian girls is available on their personal pages. We publish everything we have, except for their contact information. If her personal page says "Unknown", or "Information not supplied" on certain fields, for example: "Weight: Unknown", or "Education: Information not supplied" , that means that the lady chose not to answer that question. The best way to find out more about the lady is to write to her yourself.
If her personal page is showing on our web site - yes, she is available. We don't want to waste your time or ours, so, we remove all profiles that become unavailable, or are inactive. The inactivity is determined by a member not visiting our site, not checking his or her mail, not answering letters or "smiles" in his or her mail box. Before removing her/his profile, we contact the member by email to give them a warning about it.
Some of the bio data fields on some hot Russian girls' personal pages are answered "Will tell you later". For example, "Hobbies : Will tell you later". That is what a lady chose to answer to this specific question. It is one of the answer options that we offer in our questionnaire that the ladies fill out. It means that this cute Russian woman does not want to publish that information on the Web, however, she does not mind discussing it in correspondence with you.
Yes, we do accept payments by check, money order, cash, wire transfer, Western Union and MoneyGram transfers and more. Just send the money for the amount of credits you want to purchase. The prices for credits are:
- 100 credits or more: $1 for each credit
- 55 credits: $1.09 for each credit
- 20 credits: $2 for each credit
On or with your payment indicate your username on our site, or your full name, or your email address. Upon receiving the payment we will apply the credits to your account.
In one word - yes, they are. We did not have a single case of credit card theft, or any other customer data compromised since we started in 1997.
If you desire a more thorough and technical explanation, well, here it is. The credit card transactions on our site are as secure as they can be on the Internet. We process credit cards via our own secure server with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption as most merchants on the Internet do. Using SSL browser encryption provided by Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer, your credit card information is kept private, while being transferred over the Internet. Not only is your credit card information transmitted securely, but all of the information about the order (with our order form) is transmitted in secure mode to insure privacy. Your credit card is encrypted until it is transmitted via a dedicated line to your processing bank. Only you, us and the processing bank have access to unencrypted credit card information.
Regardless whether you shop on Yahoo, eBay, Amazon or accessing your credit card statement online - you get absolutely the same protocol - SSL encryption. SSL is probably the most common and reliable encryption on the Web. Is it absolutely unbreakable? No. Given necessary tools and resources, a technically advanced hacker can break it, the same way the credit card numbers can be stolen in bulk from department store and bank databases. If you want to be 100% secure, you would have to refrain from ANY credit card purchases over the Internet, telephone or in-store, disconnect your computer from the network and never write another check. However, it is not worth the effort, because it is almost impossible to buy something worth more than a hundred dollars or so having only the credit card information, without the card itself on hand. In any case, with the majority of credit cards you are not liable for the fraudulent use of your card information, or your maximum liability is $50.
To add a little more protection to that, we NEVER keep your credit card information on the server. Plus, per Visa and Mastercard regulations we do not keep the CVV data (the three or four digit security code on the back of your card) anywhere at all. Even in an unlikely event of your credit card number being stolen, it can't be used pretty much anywhere without that code.
We will have your credit card information, encrypted, only on our internal computers, and only for the purpose of assisting you, if you have problems processing your order on-line, or to issue any refunds. We never charge your card without your authorization. No "recurring" charges, no membership fees. We only charge your card with your expressed authorization. Guaranteed.
We hope you find this information helpful and you will be able to find that special Russian woman among many Russian women on RuPersonal. We are dedicated to helping you on this journey.
