I am a 26 year old American guy. I am looking for a stable relationship with a loyal and devoted girl to marry. Preferably a girl ages 18-20 that is attractive and warmhearted. I heard Slavic women are one of women to marry.
How are the morals in Russia and the former Soviet Republics? I know there has been a lot of sex tourism and a rise in premarital sex. Despite that is it still common to marry a girl who is waiting until marriage before having sex? I
I heard they still have tradition and that girls in former Soviet Republics are much warmer and kind than American girls. They have more loyalty to their husband. That there aren't as many "dating games" like found in America and American men have less competition. There were news stories about alcoholism rates in Russia. That the Russian girls value stability and security in relationships and value marriage more then the typical American girl and definitely more than an American girl of equal age.
To sum it all up, I heard
Russian girls - values marriage, ready to settle down at 18-20, traditional, and values stability, security
American girls - values dating and wild parties, more sexually active with more partners, prefers dating, loves drama, and wants the excitement that "bad boys" give.
Are these true?
In big cities nowadays, virgins will be hard to find. In smaller towns, easier. But smaller town girls usually do not speak any English or very little. This agency may be of help:
Are you sure you want an East Slavic Orthodox girl? The cultural/language gap is huge. Why not a Filipina? That is still the best place to find virgins and they speak English and visas are easier both for you and for them and there is a long standing relationship with the USA. Filipinas are also Catholic, so it is a culture most Americans know a lot about whereas the Orthodox one is a very hard one to understand.

Ladislav I have been meaning to ask you this, and since the topic here is brides, not getting laid, maybe it's the right place to ask.
How do you deal with the "intellectualism gap" we have with Filipinos? Granted due to the lousy American educational system, we may have an intellectualism gap with Eastern Europe that is in their favor not ours.
I know you have found Tagalog to be poetic and interesting, and obviously you enjoy the company of Filipinas. But how do you handle the simpler, more basic nature of day-to-day interests and conversation? Clearly you are a deep thinker and a good writer. Do you find yourself hungering for a pale-skinned widely-read coffeehouse girl, or an ambitious Russian MBA, or a couple of bisexual Berliners with too many piercings?
I can tell you that's a load of bullshit. Most, if not at all Russian women share the mentality of "He must prove he's worthy of me." You'll be staring blank-faced at single syllable answers from them through kik, whatsapp or any other IM service. So, you'll have to fly there and meet them in person and most don't even speak English all that well. Meaning, you'll not only have to deal with the cultural differences but the language barrier as well.
There are plenty of traditional, well-mannered, christian women in America, but you have to look harder for them.
Going overseas will not increase your odds, you'll still be playing the same odds on a different table.
To reply. I am in the Philippines as a Buddhist missionary. This takes care of my spirituality. Also, there are quite a few brainy Filipinas. They don't know who Beethoven was but within their own environment and day to day life, they are quite smart. So, I enjoy in a different way. Also, I had enough intellectualism in my early days. Now I yearn for beauty.
As far as Russia goes, you need to play the game on their soil on their terms. Girls that expressly look for foreigners in English have unrealistic expectations. You need to live there and work your way into their society.
