I was a long time member of one of the sister sites of Russiancupid.com, Afrointroductions.com, while I was living in both Mauritius and South Africa as an expatriate. Russian Cupid used to be known as Russian but was gobbled up by the Cupid Media Network and given a re-haul.
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.
Your best success with online dating in Russia will be in Moscow and Saint Petersburg.
After sharing a bit about yourself and what your ideal partner would look like, you’re finished and free to browse profiles.
Periodically, Russian Cupid will ask you to answer a few more questions from your profile to continue on with what you were doing.
(response rate = people who will respond back to you to whom you sent an introduction message).
