I was sitting at home, bored and decided to send a letter to a competition that the magazine was launching.
With their fair complexion, their intelligence and their astounding beauty, men have often asked me if our selection is real!
Some men still believe they can point their finger at any woman and she must marry him because he paid for her address! Those women do not think you are doing them a favor by writing to them.
They feel as if you were one of the guys who would approach her at a bar: where she can say, "yes" if she likes you, and "thanks, but no, thanks" if she doesn't.
For many of them, finding a husband in her home country would be preferable to moving abroad, and sometimes we even receive requests from women if she can find a man who will move in with her in Russia.
In Russia, women outnumber men (there are 10 million more women than men, according to the latest census, or 88 males for 100 females - statistics according to The Economist, "World in Figures, 2004 Edition"), and in most situations it is a question of luck if a woman manages to find herself a man or not.
Competing with men is the last thing they seek in their family lives.
The Russian ideal of a man is the man with whom she feels like she is "behind the stone wall", the leader, the provider and the protector.
And I see a worrying trend - often a reporter already knows what kind of story he or she is going to write, before they even start their interviews.
The first time I heard those words were soon after my marriage when "Cosmo" happened to interview me soon after my marriage, quite by chance.
The interpretation the media gives to the term "Mail order brides" is that a Russian mail order bride will marry any man, of any age, occupation, and personal virtues, just to get out of Russia.
The mail order bride service is interpreted by most people as a service that "sells women", a service that is neither respectable nor trustworthy.
(This is not a joke; this question was discussed in Russian parliament.) Most men thinking about "mail order brides" services are not even aware that they will not receive their bride delivered to their postal box (or their door) on request and will have to spend time, money and effort to convince a "bride" that he is a worthy candidate for her to consider.
