The Russian Bride scam

Just like the Nigerian emails promising you millions, there are some men who still fall for the Russian bride scam. In their enormous desire to have a beautiful woman in their lives, they forego all common sense and believe the emails with profuse declarations of love from a young beauty who falls suddenly in love with a paunchy middle aged, unnatractive middle class American.

I had a friend who was in communication with such a young woman, and started getting all excited until I warned him about it. He poo-pooed me and said she was “serious” about him and he was going to pay for her to come to America. I forgot about the story until a few months later when I asked him what happened to his “Russian beauty”. He relunctantly admitted I was right and that she was phony.

Some men don’t learn! The media,  too much exposure to porn, immaturity and their own incapacity to find a woman who has things in common with them instead of thinking with their “other head” make them very prone to these scams. These men have a Peter Pan complex and do not look in the mirror (see my post about “Men and mirrors”).  They are not looking for a soulmate or a balanced relationship, they are thinking of sex-without even contemplating the improbability of a young beautiful woman really fall in love with them, stay with them and have a peaceful relationship with them. They are not thinking of the consequences or the fact that they might be ripped off. They are really thinking with their penises!
