For a long time my social life has been rather stagnant, so when I recently happenned to see an add for Russian brides I thought: What do I have to lose?

Women and the Internet
I've known for a long time that one of Russia's main exports was women, but what I didn't know was that the women were so foxy!

Russian bride web sites have thousands of women available, but one in particular stood out immediately: Marina, the 23 year old Belerusian medical student.

Look into those eyes... A woman with eyes like that could have anything she wanted.

Not only is Marina a complete babe, but she's smart too. And she knows how to have a good time:"In [her] own words: I like theatre, good company, classical and modern music, football, pictures, visiting of exhibitions. I am engaged aerobics, swimming.

The phrase "I am engaged" tripped me up for a bit, but I can only assume she meant "I have an engaging personality." I find her English charming and wonderful.

It only costs $10 to contact Miss Marina and at that price, it's well worth it.


She's smart, too. (5.00 / 1) (#1)

Marina also seeks to further her knowledge. Her profession is listed as "Doctor", but her occupation is "Student". She clearly isn't a lady who is intellectually satisfied with just one Ph.D, or trip through medical school [depending on what type of doctor she is].

I wonder if she comes with the purple satin wallpaper that appears behind her. I sure hope so!!

Good luck with your romantic endeavours, gNinja. I am sure all of Adequacy is behind you; except maybe tkatchev (who I guess would be in front of you on this one?).

The satin wall paper is optional and comes in several varieties: one, two, three, and four.

I assumed that the doctor thing meant she was studying for a profession as a doctor. Lots of non native English speakers have trouble with saying things clearly. We all know how hard English is for tkachev, for example.

But not only does Marina speak English, she also speaks French! Et moi parle le Francais trop courement. Comme un camion. So that's really exciting for me. :)

If it doesn't work out, whatever you do, DO NOT kill her, dismember her corpse in the bathtub, and then try to dispose of the pieces one by one. That may seem like an easy way out, but it's really a whole lot more trouble than it's worth.

Don't ask me how I know this.

DO NOT kill her, dismember her corpse in the bathtub, and then try to dispose of the pieces one by one.

And if you decide to kill her, put the corpse into a barrel, fill the barrel with concentrated lye, weld the barrel shut, and dispose of it as a whole, preferably by sinking them into a dam. One mafia group here used it to get rid of their opponents, and the newspapers were full of it for pretty long. "Swimming in a barrel" became even a phrase of local pop culture.

Do you really want a Communist bride? (5.00 / 1) (#3)

I'm not saying that you're wrong, but you might want to think about this very carefully. The moral community in this country spent many decades fighting Communism, and I'm not sure that it's such a good idea to ship it into this country and marry it. Your mileage may vary of course.

Fighting Communism was more political than moral issue. To successfully govern people you need an enemy. Regardless if it is the Devil, Communism, drugs, or terrorism - the identity of The Enemy™ is only a minor implementation detail.

There are more important traits for a bride than the country of her origin or her political leanings.

Perhaps I should aquire Russian women. They seem both useful and entertaining. I would need ones that were both of aristocratic blood, but also willing to work very, very hard. As you can imagine, I have expensive tastes. Even if I had three or more, I worry that they would not earn enough to support me adequateley.

The search engine doesn't seem to have a paramater for earning potential. Also, I fear they would be demanding of sexual favors. Yes, I have to say, upon reflection, that these Russian women have all sorts of potential downsides and hazards.

Still, keep us posted with how you progress with yours. Is Marina your first? Or have you had good experiences with your others?

I keep finding Olgas and economists. (5.00 / 1) (#7)

Who the hell wants a girl named Olga? God. And half of them are economists. Just say the words "Russian economist" to yourself once. I gurantee you will start laughing. Try it on your friend. Go say "Russian economist" to him -- he'll fall over.

And the rest are lawyers. These are devil women! They are an army of Soviet super-soldiers, destroyers sent to ruin lives. Gah, doesn't the WTO prohibit this kind of export? Thank god we still have a president who's not afraid to nuke Russia if it comes to that.

Once I had a friend who was the offspring of two Bulgarian Economists! I find this much more humorous.

I used to live with a Ukrainian accountant called Olga. I made the mistake of calling her that once, but I was soon corrected - it's "Olya", and she spelt it that way too, despite the fact she kept recieving mail for "Olga".

Basically, it's a dumb name. Even the Rus.., er, Ukrainians don't like it. -- because it isn't
