The reason for the slight difference in dating is the imbalance in the population in Russia; due to sheer lack of men it is simply harder to find a husband for Russian brides or Russian women.
In some cases in Russia one can find a woman much younger partner for dating but remember, the greater your age difference, the less the chances of your marriage surviving and more chances of getting married to someone who has no feelings for you, but plenty of financial plans...
Bulgarian women are less likely to have professional photos; they are more likely to take a few quick snapshots with their web cam.
Many profiles of single Bulgarian girls will have low quality pictures and the girls will be much better looking in real life.
Most Bulgarian women on Sesile do look for a husband, but probably 30% seek just chat online and pen pals of their own age from another country and are less likely to be willing to leave their country and settle abroad.
A much larger percentage of Bulgarian women are financially independent compared to their Russian counterparts and are not driven by financially desperate conditions to search for a husband and marriage abroad.
Most of the ladies on this dating website are originally from Bulgaria and the rest are from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Belarus, Latvia, Lithuania, Tajikistan, Poland, Czech Republic, etc.
One point worth marking is that at Sesile you will find many women of East European origin living in the West - mostly London, UK, USA, Spain, Italy, Germany, Holland.
Russia on the other hand is very expensive and not very safe.
The Russian Mafia runs the cities and bribery and corruption are abundant.
Airline tickets are also more expensive because of the greater distance to travel for meeting the Russian lady of your choice.
The terms "Russian mail order brides" and "Russian mail order wives", widely used by Americans, can be quite misleading as it almost creates the impression that the ladies would agree to marry just about anybody, which is miles far from the truth.
Both Bulgarian ladies and Russian brides are amazingly beautiful women but you will find that a greater percentage of Russian girls will have professional or better quality photos.
