The search features surprised me at Anastasia Date.Not only could I search by my age (meaning, does the lady in question want to date someone my age?) but also her age, country of residence, smoking habits, height range, weight range, whether or not she has kids, her English proficiency, hair color, whether or not she’s got a birthday coming up, her Video Date status, and more.
“I’ve yet to check it out,” was my answer – until now.
I’ll start by saying that it is a verifiable, secure online dating site, with thousands of women in Russia or the Ukraine, mostly looking to marry a man elsewhere in the world.
Single women can’t even sign up for the site; they’ve got to go through a completely different application process to confirm they do live in Russia, and also have their profiles and emails monitored to make sure the ladies aren’t trying to circumvent the system or scam the paying male members.
So while this Anastasia Date review gets a general thumbs-up, there are a few things to take note of before jumping in.
From Anastasia Date: “Founded in 1993 by a Russian-American couple, Anastasia Date was among the first enterprises of its kind and now has a membership of over 1,000,000, with more than 80 million online visitors annually and 1.5 million+ letters exchanged onsite daily.” Demographics: Female members range from the age of majority to generally the 45-year old mark, although there are older women on the site, I only encountered gals under 30.
The gents I spoke were mostly well-educated and financially stable guys in their late 20s and up.Signing up is quick and easy, taking only a few seconds to plug in your name, email address and password, or through Facebook.You’re immediately welcomed with an Inbox message, along with a bevy of lovely ladies’ profiles.The site has few ads, other than for you to purchase credits, which are plentiful and in your face at every click.Still, the site is inviting, and really easy to maneuver around.Everything you could possibly want (and more) is listed along the left side of each page, including information about Romance Tours (traveling to foreign countries to potentially meet a mate), Virtual Gifts, ‘Video Dates’, and more.
