The reason for the slight difference in dating is the imbalance in the population in Russia; due to sheer lack of men it is simply harder to find a husband for Russian brides or Russian women.
The terms "Russian mail order brides" and "Russian mail order wives", widely used by Americans, can be quite misleading as it almost creates the impression that the ladies would agree to marry just about anybody, which is miles far from the truth.
Both Bulgarian ladies and Russian brides are amazingly beautiful women but you will find that a greater percentage of Russian girls will have professional or better quality photos.
Some Russian ladies will be more inclined to seek a foreign husband for the simple reason of being less financially secure.
This does not mean that you can just walk into a Russian marriage - the Russian women are choosy when it comes to men.
Singles entertainment in Bulgaria is very affordable with lots of good cheap restaurants.
Your money will go a lot further than in Western European countries or Moscow (believed to be the most expensive city on the planet by many...).Once you have met with your Bulgarian bride or perhaps Russian bride and you find out that you cannot live without each other you will consider taking her home with you.For the Bulgarian ladies this is much easier as they can move unrestricted around Europe and more and more visit visas for the USA are being granted to Bulgarians (we have heard that some 50% of the people who apply do get them).It is far more difficult to get a Russian lady out of Russia as the IMBRA law makes it very difficult and potentially a lot more expensive to get a fiancee visa and a simple visit visa is out of the question.Another consideration with eastern European women seen as potential future wives is that younger, city ladies are less likely to have the traditional family values that many western men seek in their future East European bride.That makes it much easier to meet so called “East European brides" in person rather than pay hundreds of euros to russian marriage agencies for translations of letters and costly trips.
