Russian Women’s View on Age Gap
Age is nothing, but a figure, when it comes to love. Many couples don’t view age gap as a problem. Look, for instance, at famous couples: Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and many others… the list is endless.
A common belief states that the strongest and the most successful families are those, where husbands are several years older than their wives. This cultural norm in Russia and many FSU countries is from five to fifteen years of age difference on the average. In some cases it can be a bit more.
For the majority of Russian girls age of the partner is not really important as they focus on personality and compatibility. Some women look for much older men intentionally as they find them more stable, mature, experienced and definite in their desires and needs.
Marriages with age gap can work, if one doesn’t make the age a barrier. Anthropologists find a great positive effect on future generations as the result of marriages of older men with considerably younger women.

No doubt, it is up to you to decide what age difference is acceptable for you, however, compatibility and maturity are decisive factors.
Too much choice can be bad for you.

It will not only be difficult to make a choice, but also overwhelming.
Aside from the fear of meeting a complete stranger, you also have to make sure that you can keep your boundaries.

Despite the benefits, online dating can be a scam.
While many dating sites allow you to try their services for a free trial period, others might limit you to a limited number of matches.
Moreover, online dating is more likely to lead to the exchange of personal information between men and women than between men and women.
Women are more likely to make the first contact in online dating
A study from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) shows that women who initiate contact are more likely to get a response than men are.
In fact, women are twice as likely to get dates when they initiate contact, compared to half the men.
Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that women tend to be more assertive and outgoing.
But what exactly makes women more likely to initiate the first contact?
According to the Pew Internet Research Center, men tend to initiate contact while women tend to respond to messages.
Men initiate contact more than women, and women receive 2.
