Sometimes, as one woman with a Russian dating site pointed out, the woman you are corresponding with isn't the girl of your dreams but a sweaty old fat man that is hunting for dollars. If she asks for money to pay for a visa, plane ticket, to help someone, be aware that it's probably all phoney baloney.
With a little ingenuity you can verify that someone is actually who she say she is. If your looking for marriage, or just want to see things clearer, fly to Russia. Make sure that your future bride can return with you to France before you act.
My Russian wife and I have lived in St Petersburg since 2000. There is good and bad about Russia and the Russian personality. My blog will explain a lot of this at http://www.amrusob.blogspot.com
